Wo always like to glvo credit where credit is due, no matter who the man is or to whnt party lie belongs M. II. Moore, of Dubuque, was a grcenbackor when there was such an organization, and we judge now favors what is termed the people's party or the allianca. He had a letter in Calamity Woller's paper last week on the subject of tho tariff which contains just as much good sense ns if it had been in any other paper, and wc glvo tho following extract: "I know very woll that tho United Stales cannot pay double the price for labor and capital that England and Germany pays, and tlic& sell in tho name markets that they do nnd compote successfully. Those that deny that labor and interest are about double here, deny what reliable statistics provo. In this respact the free traders ate on a par with the man who thinks lie can whip two men of his own ni/.o ami strength. That we are and can continue to be superior in machinery aud skill is a delusivo Idea. Eveti the "Heathen Chitiua" is able to steal or imitate all our cunning. For a time our manufacturers limy liavo a temporary advantage by tho invention of new machinery, operated FROM GOV. HOIKS' NEW YORK BANQUET SPEECH ON CORN RAISING IN IOWA, IN WHICH HE STATED THAT THE ENTIRE VALUE OF THE CROP WHEN MARKETED HAD AVERAGED FOR FIVE YEARS SIXTY-SEVEN CENTS AN ACRE LESS THAN THE ACTUAL COST OP PRODUCTION. "THE ACTUAL COST OP PRODUCING THIS CEREAL, THE MOST PROFITABLE OF ALL THAT ARE RAISED WITHIN THAT STATE, HAS, DURING THE SAME PERIOD, EXCEEDED THE ENTIRE VALUE OF THE CROP WHEN HARVESTED, SAYING NOTHING WHATEVER OP INCOME PROM THE CAPITAL INVESTED IN THE LAND REQUIRED TO PRODUCE IT." "WHAT IS TRUE OP THE PRODUCTION OP CORN IN IOWA IS EQUALLY TRUE OF ALL THE GREAT STAPLES RAISED ON HER FARMS." THE BEAROE DEFICIT. Tho Dubuque Herald, through u Waukon correspondent, mid Inter tho Waukon Democrat, publishes tho fact of an apparent deficit in tho. accounts of ex-olcrk, L. M. Benroe, of this county. It has boon known for a long time that the matter wns being investigated and that probably there would bo found to be a large dolieil. Tho pnpers of the county have wisely refrained from mentioning it uutll tho time arrived •when tho keeping of it secret longer would look like collusion and it is well Hint it now be ninda public and the matter sifted to tho bottom. It is not a kindness to either Mr. Bearer, his bondsmen, or tho republican party to palliate or condone tho offense. It, now stands Mr. Bearco in hand to mako a •clean breast of tho matter nnd at least show whero the money has gono nnd iunko reparation so far ns possible. He must know what has become of ihu money and his bondsmen at least, have a right to know. Wo bolievo no monitor of tho republican party will sook to soroou, cover up or exouso tho shortage; and if thoro Is anything criminal In the enso they will demand that It bo prosecuted to tho fullest extent. Dofnl- catlouH in office must bo made odious, no matter who or what pnrty is implicated. "Lol'tio guilty man cseapo." in this connection we wish to saddle tho full measuro of blumo on the board of supervisors for dirclictlon of duty in failti.g to mako .full annual settlement with all tho county officors, as tho law directs. In this onso it seems tho county will loso tho bulk of tho money unless Mr, Boavoo is ablo to mako it good, as tho boudsmon cannot bo hold onl) for tho terms In which thoy worn on tho bond, and It Is doubtful if thoy can bo'hold for ratro than ono year's doflclouoy, as tho supervisors failed in thoir duty. Another thing. This should forovor pnt n Btop to tho election of any man, to any office, in any party, moro than two terms. Safety lias In Bhort tonus of olllco.

IT is not to be oxpoctud that such it statement us tho following from tho St. Louis stamping company will put an end to tho outrageous misrepresentations of the tin plate liar, but it will servo as au oilloirl refutation of his slsindor and n souroo of information to tho gonoval roador: "Our present mills employ nearly 400 hands, tho majority of whom avo willing sheet iron for tin plate. Nearly 98 per cent, of tho making of tin plates is in rolling the iron. If the free traders only knew a little more about what they talk of thoy would be wiser and s»y less; for the wore-they say now the more they will havo to "eat crow 1 ' as timegoos on.

The McKinlcy tariff bill Is tho result of a compromise among all grades of protectionists. All the men who vote for a bill cannot gut their exact ideas in it. Senator Plumb, of Kansas, refused to vote with Ids party for it. Col. Henderson, of Dubuque, niailo a most valiant light for a of sonic of its features, but voted for it rather tlinn lose the sugar clause and tho other 109 articles thai are admitted free. I think myself tho UivltY on tin is a little too radical. I thought tho same when the tariff of $'27.i>Q per ton was placed on steel rails, but experience proved it tho wisest movement aver made in the United Slates in behalf of protection. I predict that inside of live years wo shall make more tin plate than we import, and in ten years imports will be unknown and prices low. Wales imports half her tin. Wo will import it direct to tho United Slates and save hnndliug thoro, until our own mines are developed. In three-fourths of the cases, tho taxes added by the McKinlcy bill arc upon articles almost exclusively of home manufacture, and not llio slightest ndvaiico in price has occurred. The farmers have already received live or ten times ns much in tho -Advance of their produce, as llicy have paid extra on goods." A SHOUT timo ago we called down the anathemas of Cong. Ilntler by stating that at ono time ho had been a republican, a prohibitionist, etc. Wo gave him tho benefit of his denial, and were glad to do so. But tho Manchester Press took the matter up and indicated that lie had protended to be a republican during his residence in Delaware county. Mr. Butler again made a denial of ever having been a republican and the Press last week says: "Walt. It. Butler denies that he was ever a republican. Tho Press nevir said ho was. Wo don't believe he over was But that in 1871) nnd 'HO lie pretended to bo one, there are plentv of good men here in Manchester renily to testify. Ho tulkutt republicanism, and beforo nnd during the national convention in 1880, ho was loud in ndvounuj of tins nomination of John Sherman as the candidate for pieshlcnt. Whether ho ever voted a republican ticket, is of course, uncortain. > Nothing can bo known about it, by any statement ho may mako. A man who was tho foremost stumper in Delaware county for tho prohibitory amendment, and could then consent to he temporary chairman of such a convention as that at Olliuu- wa, aud make such a speech as ho made thoro, is not to be boliovod under any circumstances. Nobody who knows him here, except porhnps a fow of tho samo stripe, would glvo tho least credence to anything ho might say." LIVELY TIMES AHEAD. (Miunonpclls Tribune] Tho atlompt to hold bnck prosperity will fail. The persons or circumstances or conditions Unit aro aiming to do this will miss their hold mid fall into tho slough. Whon tho earth makes up its mind to bo lavishly bountiful,—when tho Holds" bow beneath''tho weight of thoit own riches, when the hills resound with cadences of unnumbered Hooks nnd hords, and tho mines glitter with newly developed wealth that scorns oxhniistless—ovon tho timid grow strong and capital braoos up In spito of itself. Usually wo bow to Wall street. This your Wall street must bow to tho troiisuro houses of tho norlhwost and banish its foars. Tim liat for a prosperous year has gone forth. The dooreo is Issuod by nature and is stronger than the bourso or tho stock exchange. It is timo to get Into the wagon and go ahoiul. PARROTS ARE SHY. The Hoat Gnrrutoua UlriL on Earth— BliyUeforo Furclmoor.1. People ox poo t to ooraa Into a bird store and open up a conversation with a parrot off hand. They fail, and then mako up their minds that tho parrot Is worthless. This will apply to tho majority of people. They do not glvo tho bird'credit for the IntolUgenoe It actually possesses. There aro parrot* In St. Louis valued at from $60 to $100 that will not bo coaxed into conversation with a stranger, and yot thoy aro among the beat talkers extant. The birds often refuse to "porform" when there are purbhasors looking on, but onoe the store Is cleared of peoplo they will chatter away as though their very life depended on thole bolng heard. The majority of parrots will take to a girl or woman much quicker than to one of the sterner sex. DKsrrres the alleged unpvoiUabloness of farming, Governor Boies has not yet disposed of his four or live square miles of Iowa lands, nor has ho reduced tho rental he has been charging to his pool- tenants, whp, according to his statistics, have been suffering heavy losses all these years. As a sagacious business roan the governor ought to take ndvaotago ot tho vooout advance in prices nnd dispose of his farms; or as a humane man, sympathizing with the woes of the oppressed farmers, he 'night to reduce the rent of his memorial estates. That Is. If ho really believes what ho has been saying,— Intor Ocean, . I'm Atlantic Telegraph calls attt n- tipn tq the'fact that .during tlie, Cleyo,- lan,U .adn)Jnlstratlotj , ''l'l\o Vbfanketa'tor tbS WW yitoffij$$% England; \ui WW rnmeni .payjng f^' each,', ''J'be " t:r)»ofl' s adro|nUtj'(»l|,«n. l)*8>juat,oop ml "Far out of sight, while sorrows still enfold ns, Lies the fair country where our hearts abide; And of its bliss is naught more wondrous told us Than these few words, '1 shall be satisfied.' *' We do not know tho author of the above stanza, but ho or she, as the ease may be, has solved the whole problem of happiness and heaven. Kren in this lifo tho philosopher's stone is found embedded in contentment. Wc all know this, and still wo persistently refuse to bo satisfied. Tho great bulk of us who, with our families, enjoy reasonably good health and are ablo to procure the necessaries of life arc in tho host position possible to be contented, and still wc refuse the boon. Wo llnd, when wo meet success in tho labors of to-day, which, in the morning, seemed to be nil that we desired, that the mind has already mapped out a program for tho morrow that must be as faithfully and successfully carried out M was that of to-d:iy to insure a contented mind. And thus, day after day and year; nftor year wo are atriviug for tho unattainable—contentment. The fact that wo never more than partially attain It is oyidence that at lenst there should ho a realm somewhere whero these longings should cease ami mnn be sat isiied. We cannot conceive, though, of a satisfaction that should be so supremo as to shut ort desire for advancement and improvement of '.lie mental faculties and a thirst for more knowledge. Tho heaven sometimes depicted, wherein the soul is to stand idly before the throne and sing praises anil play a harp of a thousand s'rings, is not the ho'iven that au intelligent, ambitious soul would aspire to, and with such a hoavon few would be "satisfied The cause of most of our discontent lioro is the uncertainty that attaches to all our undertakings. If wo knew that when wo had attained a reasonable competence no disaster would overtake us, and that our health would not fail we might more readily bo contented Willi cur lot. But we see that the crops sometimes fail, the elements sometimes destroy the accumulations of years, and that physical disabilities arc liaHo to ooiiio upon w so that wo aro uuable to longer successfully light the battle of life. Hence it is that we keep on struggling for n little more to bridge over the rainy tiny that is to come, and therefore we arc uevor satislied. If in tho future state tltero is no uncertainty nnd we know that all our plans shall be fully realized we may indeed bo satislied; not by indolence and an eternity of what wo term rest or inactivity, but by n knowledge that tho universe is before us to explore aud that wc shall not only have the time but tho best of opportunity to prosecute our investigations. Inactivity is decay and death. Activity is growth, expansion, development, life. So may we be "satisfied," and thus attain to happiness and heaven. To be "satislied" over there wo should pursue the courso time more than any other conserves contentment here. And this is just ns essential no matter what our views of the creeds may bo. To-day wo ran across an extract from a letter written by J. H. Philpot, in the New London Sun on the subject of "religious crcoils and practical religion." Wc do not know who J. II. Philpot is, and it makes no difference to us. Thoro is a volume of wis. doiu in tho brief oxtract, ami wo glvo it place: "Never, perhaps, in a country noiui nnlly christian, has tho bible as .whole, and its details, and tho christian religion, and tho character of the chris­ tians thomselvos, been moro • liorcely assailed than thoy havo in this country during tho last fifteen or twenty years Yet it is not practical religion but creeds that aro objected to. 'Creeds must go.' No ono objects to tho practical application of a part of llio oreed, or ot tho whole creed, whon summed up in tho two commandments: 'Thou shalt lovo tho Lord thy God with all thy soul and wltli all thy mind.' Ami tlie second is like unto it—'Thou shall lovo thy neighbor ns thysolf.' Honesty, liberality, tho kind, sympathizing word or look; thn broad philanthropy which takos in all, yet Is a spocinl friend to ouch; the enterprising public spirit, tho mind that is above all narrow, sollish, bigoted views; all theso and similar ones go to form tho creeds of those who say, 'away with nil creeds.' 'Deeds not crouds, etc' A oroed is simply a summary of religions bollefs. What wo want is our own creeds, not "sonio one else's forcod upon us. Notwithstanding nil the persecutions, tho destruction of liberty, the selling back of civilization, the dark ages, etc., due to falso creeds, any lntelllgo'ntroasonlug person must have a religious croon; a summary of ideas of what rollgion Is or ought to bo." Everybody can subscribe to such a oroed. It is simply the recognition of the fatherhood of God and tho brother hood of man. And after all does it not oonsliluto tho essence of "tho law and tho prophotsP" Is not tho man who accepts it and prnotioos It just ns rauoh ol a christian ns though he accepted the thirty-nine artlclosP We must bellovo that in rollgion as in everything elso, notions speak louder than words; that tho act mil lifo is more than tho profession of faith. As vo havo snid beforo, let a man bellovo all that Is presented to his oonsoiousnoss as reasonable, right and true. On this basis there will bo n wide diversity of belief. But whothor lie boUovoa much or llttlo let him bo sure and "act well his part, there all tho honor lies." Tho old oroeds nro crumbling and will soon pass away. Just as the olec- trlo light, by Its now brilliantly and power is superceding the old and dim- mot IUumhiaUous of tho . past, BO tho broader, more penetrating light' of those latter days in the 1 theological anil thinking world la taking the place of the taper which only rondo the darkness visible in the early morn of o)vlli- vmlionmul lulolllgenoo,.

If wo do this we cannot fail, at the end of tho journey, to be "satisfied." BRINGING IT BIGHT^OME. A democratic contemporary prot pounds the following inquiries, which, tho Courier tnkes great plcnsuro in' answering: "Has the Otlnmwa Courier yet discovered how tho McKinlcy tariff bill will mako table cutlery cheaper in Ottumwa? Also, why the Ottumwn cutlery works increased its force five fold on account of the passage of that bill? And have the wnges of tho Ottumwa employes of that institution been increased, us llio tariff, you say, is foi tho benefit of the laboring men? Tho renders of that enlightened paper aro anxious for nn explanation." Yes! 'J ho Courier has discovered how the McKinlcy bill will make table cutlery cheaper in Oltuniwa. It has learned to a certainty that the action of tho Ottumwa Cutlery Co., in determining to increase thoir capacity live fold, and give employment to live hundred people instead of one hundred, as heretofore, has boon brought about directly and solely on account of the passage of llio McKinlcy hill. While it is true ihat'tho majority of the cheaper table cutlery used in the United States has for seycral years been almost entirely manufactured in the United States, jet it is equally true that on pocket knives and the liner grades of cutlery of all kinds, American manufacturers could not compete with foreign. It is just in the lino of these line grades that the Ottumwa works propose to branch out. aud llio Courier has tho statement of Manager llnstian to tho effect that without tlie McKinlcy tariil their hands would be tied, and that they could do absolutely nothing in that direction. Ottumwa is to Do congratulated upon tho situation, for it moans that this city is to have probably the largest cutlery works in the United Stales; and it means that every man dependent upon labor is to see exemplified in Ottumwa, directly and unquestionably, the benefits of the McKinlcy bill to tho industrial masses. Wo have lieaul again and again, from democratic speakers that the tariff is a tax. How is it then that under tlie McKinlcy bill, which increased tho tariff on every line of cutlery, Hint the price of cutlery has not advanced one ceutP Mr. Frank Mclntire, of this city, is good authority upon the subject of cutlery; his democracy is unquestioned, ami in response to tho Courier's question lie replied that "cut- lory had not advanced" since the enactment of the MuKiuley bill, ami llnvt "some grades were cheaper than ever before." How then is it possible that the McKinlcy bill lias Influenced tlie Ottumwa Cutlery Company to the action iudicatedP The answer is easily given. Tho tariff, by the McKinlcy bill, has been placed at a point which gives tho American Held to the American manufacturer. It enables him to pay the American scale of wages in competition with the almost pauper labor of German and lOnglif h manufacturers. Without tlie tariff tlie American manufacturer must either reduce his scale ot wages to the continental pauper scale or lie must go out of tho business. With the tariff he is enabled to pay the high wages prevailing in America, and at the same lime he is assured of a markot that justifies him in doing just what the Ottumwa company has determined upon, to enlarge his capacity to the fullest extent necessary, anil give employment to thousands in place of hundreds. How is it, then, that the price of cutlery remains tho sameP This very important mnttcr for tho muss of the people is tho result of homo competition. The American manufacturers aro given the American field, but no limit is placed upon thn number of manufacturers, anil tho result is what protectionists havo always claimed, tho price is reduced, instead of advanced, ami the oft-repeated doolnralion Unit tho "tariff is a tax" vanishes into meaningloss nothing. Hon. John II. Gear, in a porsonnl let- tor to the publisher of the Courier, touches upon this point and says: "You will note that whilo" wo have increased the duties both ovor the old law and tho Mills bill, cutlery has not advanced but is as clioap to-day (if not cheapor) as it has oyer boon. The result of the McKinloy bill lins been to stimulate tho manufacture in tho United Slates, and competition, as it always does, keeps tho prices down. The duly on razors is a pvictioal illustiation of this. You will nolo Hint wo increased this duty very materially If Ihc domoevats' theory is true that tho consumer pays tho duty, American and foreign razors would havo been advanced in prioo to tho consumer. Such is not tho fact. 1 met last week a traveling representative of Mr. Torry (who is the largest manufacturer of razors in tho United Slates.) I linked him how much Torry had ntlvanocd the prioo of his razors sinoo tho passage of tho McKinloy bill. Ho said that ho waA selling razors at less rates than bofbre tho passage of tho bill. Mr. Torry told mo (Mr. Gear) las* year that it tho McKinloy bill would give him protection sufllotonb to enable him to command tho market of tho United' States, he could reduce the prioo to tho consumer. As' it is of razors, so it has proved In cutlery nnd so it will provo in timo." Uoro then is a practical oxamplo showing how tho McKinloy bill stimulates and holds up Amorioari Industries; how It gives employment to thousands, who must otborwiso ongngo in agriculture or remain idlo. - How it doos not inorenso tho price of manufactured articles to the consumer, but by stimulating homo competition invariably reduces tho price, Lastly, (a matter of paramount interest to oyery citizen of Ottumwa and the industrial region of Iowa) It Is soon to give to this city probably tho greatest cutlery works in tho United Stntos, and possibly in tho world. If our demoornttu friends havo any forth or questions to ask, the Courier will bo pleased to answor.

All Indian Story THnt In Short But Very, Vory Good. In tho summer of 1877, a dirty, tircd-ltJoJclng party of horsomcn, forty in number, were wending their way over tho rolling of Western Nebraska. In tho load and to tho roar todo u detachment of Undo Sam's blue-coated soldiers, commanded by n boarded captain whose experience on tho frontier had made his namo well- known. In the midst, carefully guarded, were a half dozen Cheyonno Indians, ami following them enmo ten citizens whose garb betokened them to bo settlors of tho plain, nnd whoso jaded horses showed that thoy had boon hard ridden. Tho soldiers woro jubilant ovor their capture, tho Indians were stolidly in- dltt'oront, while the pltiinsmon woro sullen countenances which brooded no good for tho rod prisoners. 'Tho Indians wore a portion of a raiding party Unit two days before had attacked outlying settlements and massacred several entire families. The citizens were a party that had been formed to follow tho Indians and avenge thoir outrage and that morning thoy had surrounded thoir foe nnd woro bent on their annihilation, when tho troopors had suddenly come upon tho sceno, and to the disgust of tho settlors, captured tho whole party, and thus robbed thom of their revenge An hour lator n camp was solected by the sido of n clear stream which coursed over a whilo tanrty bottom. Ono of tho citizens who had not dismounted rodo up to tho group of Indians and addressed a wrinkled buck hard countonnnco clearly bo- spoke his bloodthirsty nature.
