There will be a tcpubllenn senatorial convention, at Postvillo, Wednesday, Sept. 9. 1891, at 11 o'clock, a. ni., for tho purpose of nominating a candidate for the offlco of stnto senator, and for tho transaction of such other business as may properly be considered. The basis of' representation will bo ono dolegato for each 100 votes or major fraction thereof cast for Hou. W. R. McFarland for secretary of state at the election held Nov. 4, 1890. The counties will bo entitled to dele- S ates as follows: llaraakco 18 Fayette 26 BY ORDER COM. REPUBLICAN COUNTY CONVENTION. GOV. BOIES AS A CORN RAISES.

M. BEEMAN, Chm. COT/NTS" CONVENTION. It looks as if there had been some hoavy blundering scmowhero In tho call for the republican senatorial con vention and tho county convention called, in pursuance of tho senatorial call. The senatorial convention is to be hold at Postvillo next Wednesday and the county convention at Waukon to-day (Saturday.) There is absolutely no notice of oilhor convention, and the result will bo no representation of the people In eithor case. It would have been far better for tho county committees to havo met and chosen the delegates to the senatorial convention, if no adequate notice could bo given. W« havo heard the names of no candidates mentioned, and it seems vory llko a faree to hold a convention oo tho spur of tho momont, without time to discuss tho situation and settle ou the bost plan to .pursue. One thing is evident: If an anti-prohibition republican is not named It will be just as well to hold ao convention la this senatorial 'district. No prohibitionist can bo elected with 600 adverso majority. IT is a notlcoablo fact that in tho great ottinpalgu low being waged In Ohio tbe democrats have abandoned the tariff as the main issuo and are making tho campaign on free coinage And yet the author of tlio MoKinloy bill is the republican candidate for governor. This moans that the demoorats of Ohio aro shrewd enough to see that last year's campaign canuot be duplicated this year. Tho results of tho MoKtuloy bill give tho lio to last year's campaign, and hence it Is neoossavy that another hobby should be extemporized that had not been oxplodod. And oven this will not work. on'hand mules rarely avoragou §1 for fourteen hours of toll. Tlio work of tho weavers was exacting and tiresome in tho oxtruuio and CG3 cenls per day was above tho avorago pay." Commenting on these iigures tho Commercial Bulletin says: "Tho compensation of a <vago worker shows a niarkod increase. Tho womon of tho weave room now avor­ ago $8 por week of sixty hours, and tho men $10 a week, while mulo sniu- ners avorago from 811 to SI 2. Tho wages of masons, carpenters, painters and other outdoor laborers have doubled within tho last fifty years, and their hours of labor materially lessened." Tho sanio paper vividly describes tho old way of living, which will seem very real to many readers: "The meat brought on to the tablo of tho wage-worker of that day was pork. Coffee, lea, milk and sugar were used paringly, and molasses was almost invariably used for sweetening. Sat­ inet for win'er wear and nankeen for summer uso were tho garments of men and boys alike. Cowhide covered the foot of tho boys in winter. During tho other months thoy wont barefoot, Their winter garments included neither undershirts ngr overcoats, but tho woolon comforters served instead. Oil ico was the ordinal y dress for women and but few varied therefrom oyen on Sunday. In tlio tunemcnts stoves were unknown, carpots wcro beyond the occupants' moans and tho walls wore unadorned with paper or pictures. Chairs wore of wood only. Tho feather bed was usually for the comfort of tho parents, and the younger members slept on straw. Ono room served for their sittlug room, dining room and kitchen and the dining room was rare ly separated by a partition. Tho rug before each bed"was of braided woolen rags. Theso operatives, it must be remembered, woro native American men and women who came from country towns." Tho world is growing better every year and the lot of this generation is better tuau that of any peoplo that ov- or lived Perhaps the scalo of wages above given was truo of the east, but was not true of the west. There was but one price for common labor and that was 50 eta. per day, or $12 per month, and that was usually paid in something besides money. And still noariy every article purchased cost fully twice as much as it costs to-day, whilo day wages are more than duublo what they wore then, and month wages aro more than 50 por cent, highor. And wo have nowspa pors and politicians who prato about "tho rich growing richer and tho poor growing poorer," all on account of tbe wiokod republican party! If anybody i» growing pooror (and doubtless many are) it is raanlffestly his own fault; for tho conditions conducive to goneral prosperity wero never so fa- yorablo us now. Some people ohooso to spond their monoy rather than keep it and thon lay the blame for their poverty to tho party in power. As a rule about tho poorest man in the community sets as good a table and dresses his family about as well as the richest. This was not so in tho "old times." Men lived aocordlng to their moans and thus formed a nucleus for tho wcnlth which oame to them in lator yoars. Instead of complaining about the rich and devising ways and means to compel a distribution, theso men should go to work aud. save a part of their earnings, and it would not bo long till the Utopia of tho communist would bo realized in the only manner in which it eyor can be realized in lids world quires his renters to 'properly prepare for and plant at least ono half of the tillable laud thereon to corn.' In payment for the uso of the land he requires the renter to pay him 'thirteen and ono thiid bushels of the soundest corn raised by him each year of said term, for each acre planted to orn.' It will bo observed that the governor not only requites his tenant* to plant the cereal which ho claims is raised at a loss, but he demands as payment for use of tho land suilieietit corn (at present prices) to pay the original cost of tho land to him, which was between $4 and $10 per acre." The Dubuque Times offers $L*6, to be donated to any charity that Gov. Boles may select, for a copy of ono of the loas- os referred to sbjovo. But tho price is too small—boforo cloction. TUE following sensible scrap is from the Chicago Herald: "1 know a wife who is waiting safo and sound in her father's home for her young husband to earn thn monoy siu f le-liandcd to make a homo worthy of cr acceptance. She makes me think of the first mats of tho ship who would stay on shore until tho captain has tested tho ability of his vessel to weather the storm. Back to your ship you cow ardly one! If tho boat goes down, go down with it, but do not consider yourself worthy of any fair weather you did not help to gain! A womau who will do all sho can to win a man's lovo moroly for the profit bis puree is going to bo to her, and wilt desert him' when the money runs low, is a bad woman and carries a bad heart in her bosom. Why, you aro never really wedded until you have had dark days together What earthly purpose would a cablo serve that never was tested by weight? Of what use is tho tie that biuds wedded hearts together if like a filameut of llosS it parts when tho strain is brought to bear upon it? It is not when vou aro young, my dear, when tho skies aro blue aud every wayside weed Haunts a summer blossom, that tlio story is recorded. It is when Darby and Joan" aro faded, and wasted" and old, whon poverty has nip pod tho roses, when trouble and wan and care havo flown like uncanny birds ovor their heads (but novor yet nested in their hearts, thank God), that the completed chronicle of their lives fur nlslies tho record over which approving heaven smiles and weeps." LETTER FROM EUROPE. I FRANK WRIGHT IS still pleading through his paper for the nomination to the legislature "subject, to the decision of tbe republican convention." Thin is a little cheeky for tho editor of artapsrt/tbo blowing his own horn so vociferously, but Wright* is nothing if not cheeky, -If ho had presented his claims two years ago subject to the decision of the republican convention, aud Abided by tho roBult, ho would bo in better odor now.

Boies bpooches at all, or else refuse to pub lish them as delivered, waiting for the democratic state committee to "edit tbom before giving them to tho public. It seems that the DesMoines Loader has absolutely refused to pi-blish the Keokuk and Davenport speeohos, although it has been repeatedly challenged to do so by the State Register. Thero must bo "something rotten In Denmark" EUIXUUKUH, SCOTLAND, 7-27-'9l Dear Ones at Home:— Ono week ago this morning I wrote you all from the quaint old town of Chester. To-day I sond you greetings from the gracdest city l^avo over visited. You will want at least, a hurried uccount of my movements during tho past seven busy daj's. I shall hold a groat deal—in fact nearly all—until wo meet, not many days heuco. After writing that last letter Mr. Wilder and I took a carriage and drove out to Hurwurdeu. This is the name of tho groat estate ou which Gladstone lives, as well as of tho liltlo village noar by. Wo readied there about sunset— a delightful time to inspect the old castlo. It datos back over six hundred years. The koop, tho chapel, tho courtyard, tho dungeon, tho tower, the drawbridge, the moat, etc., etc., all abound in suggestions of tho middle ngos. Tho view from tho towor is very extondod—being something liko fifty miles In every direction. Away to the south lie tho beautiful mountains of Wales. To tho nortli you seo tho smoke from Liverpool, and tho Irish Sea in tho distance. Tho Gladstono or Hanvarden mansion is noar tho oastlo. It was closed for tho summer, but the guide pointed out various points of interest, liko tho great statesman's study. Wo saw tho groves whore Glad­ stono goos to out down treos. Ho cut tho last ono about a year ago, at the age of eighty-ono. His popularity in Brititvn is by no means on the wane, aud it seems to mo that he will most certainly win In the general elections next year. On Tuesday, July 21st, I loft Mi Wilder and proceeded alone to the English lake rogiou. Here ono might well spond a summer, whereas 1 was cottage of Hartley Colcrldgo is also soon passed. Thou there breaks upon our view the Kttto gem of a lake—Grns- merc. It is surrounded by several quite high hills, or fells as they are' called. I spent an hour here, and then took the next coach on. It gave ma an opportunity to climb one of the fells, and obtain a view which will linger in my iicmory many years. Wo now begin a heavy ascent. At times the d river requests the gentlemen td dismount and walk. The country becomes wilder. As wo ascond the pass we obtain striking views of Gras- mero at our roar. Wo come to an old stone wall at the top of tho pass, marking the boundary botween Cumberland and West Moreland. A rude stono monument marks the grave of tho lost king of Cumbria. From this high point wo obtain our iirst view of Lake Thirlmero. Although much less is said about this lake than some others in tho vicinity, 1 call it ono of the most beautiful. The scenery surrounding it Is much more rugged and grand. Mount Helvellyn rises on our right. Within a fow more miles wo reach the summit of another ridge. This nflords us a magnificent view of tho valo of Keswick and the lakes of Dorwcntwatur ond Bnsscnthwaite. Within a few mtn- ute i wo descend to the town. This section abounds in the lovlicst scenery. I only regret that I could not spond a week thoro. Tho great "Keswick Convention for Deepening Religious Life" was in session. It Is the most noted summer religious gathering of Britain. I attended their evening meeting with with much prolit to mysolf. Thero wero probably ; 2,000 or 3,000 in the tent that night. Early Wednesday morning I turned reluctantly nwny from this—ono of tho most popular summer resorts, and hastened, on to Scotland, tho land havo long wanted to tread upon About nino o'clock wo crossed tlio boundary line near Carlisle. For oyor an hour wo passed through a somewhat wild country, given up entirely to sheep raising. Tho hills are coyurod with sheep —a most interesting change Thon wo npproached the valley of tho Clyde, and for an hour rodo through ono of the most densely populated sections I have ever seen. It soonied to bo almost a continuous row of towns and villages. In ovcry direction yon might see manufactories, hugo chimneys, smelting works, etc. About noon we reached Glasgow, the metropolis of Scotland, and tho sccon city of tlio kingdom— having about 800,000 inhabitants. During the afternoon I tramped about the streets and parks. It is kept up better than any largo city I have soon, unless it be Edinburgh, if we may term that a largo city. I was interested in the university. Its building is thu linost public building in Scotland. I called upon Prof. Drummond, of the Froo Church Collego, but regretted to find that h» had gono north for his vacation. The parks and public gardens aro vbry good. I spent somo time in tho great ship yards of the river Clyde, said to bo tlio largest in the world, turning out laitt year about 250 largo vessels. St. George's Squaro contains a vory good group of monuments erected in memory of a low of Seotland's great men: Sir Walter Scott, novelist and poet. Robert Burns, poet.^ Campbell, poot. James Watt, inventor of tho steam engine. Peel, ono of tho prominent statesmen and reformers of Britain. David Livingstone, tho missionary. Prince Albort. etc What a group of moil! Think of their influence in tho past and present. (Concltidod next week.) Sleapffiff 'or He»»ty. Sleep Is under right conditions, a won dcrful tonic to the human system.

IJOIKS' KKY NOTE, The great key note of the campaign which Democracy waited to hear Bounded by Governor Boies has at last been struck. It chords with nil that which has brought Democracy into disrepnte in tho bost communities. The Sionx City Journal in discussing the address says: Governor Boies In bis speech at Cherokee undertook to sound "tho key note" for the Democrats. His key note consisted of two parts —whisky and corn. As to the first part, the whisky part, the governor rather reiterates tho koy note of the Democratic platform. He signifies that he IB -with the Democratic bossos and the saloon bosses who devised that tilatfonu. The governor stands for the spread of the legalized saloons into all counties of the state, no matter how large tho adverse temperance majority may be, in which there may bo a tough town or a rotten township to authorize saloons. All the governor's fino talk about permitting localities to decide for themselves is the boldest deception, for it means nothing bat that no county in Iown is to be permitted to rid itself of or to keep out saloons, bnt that "the towns, townships, and municipal corporations," to nse the language of the platform which Governor Boies deliberately and repetitiously indorses, may thrust saloons into unwilling localities )nd counties. There are dozons of snch counties in Iown, beyond dispute. In his Bpeeoh yesterday oven the governor says: "If experience con demonstrate anything it is now established that this [Iowa prohibitory] law can bo reasonably well enforced whero public sentiment is largely in its favor, and that it is so enforced in such localities." But the governor is pledged to tbe Democratic platform, and he repledges himself by bis speech yesterday, to apolioy which binds hand and foot temperance majorities in any county in Iowa, and to compel it to submit to tho curso of sa- loonism through "tho towns, townships and municipal corporations," the only placoB in which in any event saloons are set up. That issue is ptatn. Tho peoplo of Iowa know whnt indorsement of tho Democratic party means. An endorsement of the Democratic party in the coming election would mean that tho peoplo of Iowa want saloons thrust into every county. Let no man now or hereafter pretend that the issue was misunderstood. The Becond part of Govomor Boies' speech—Btrnngoly enough—is not are- iteration of his Keokuk speech,wherein, after a record of life-long Republicanism, he suddenly declared his adhesion to Bob Toombsisin and solid sonthism in its most despotic phases; nor yet is it a'reiteration of his Davenport speech, wherein he virtually declared that the government should by force prevent railroad employes from exeroising the right to quit work. It is a declaration of allegiance and discipleshlp to James R. Sovereign, whom Governor Boies is said to have declared to be not fit for tbe office to which he appointed him. Governor Boies stands by his Wall street speech, wherein he represented that Iowa farming during five years preceding 1890 had been carried on at an enormous annual net loss. The governor indicates that he will rest his present opposition to the tariff system, which he supported for twenty-Are years, on his New York representation of Iowa farming. Of coarse the governor, if he touches that subject at all, has to avoid all ourrent market quotations, Bnt the central point is the whisky point, and the governor says: "This qnestion ought not to be hampered by party affiliations," Ah, governor, that won't do. Tbe gome was played on Republicans two years ago, but It won't succeed again. in perhaps the larger oration. lake we oanie to Amblesldo, another |6jb!on;tb,4ir haniii trul).

Thu farmers cannot takt their groin to the government ond receive $1.00 for every 78 cents' worth, but thoy are asked to vote for a low which would give to tho few silver mine owners such a privilege TIIK TAKIFP QUESTION. The difference between tho Republican party and the Democratic party on the tariff question, briefly stated, is this: Tho Republican party boliovos in a protective tariff, and wonld levy that tariff on articles imported from other countries, tho liko of which aro als c grown or manufactured In this country, such as wool, wheat, barley, iron, and allartiolei manufactured by us. The Democratic party believes in s revenue tariff, nnd would levy that tariff on articles imported from othor countries, the like of which are not grown or manufactured in this country, such as sugar, tea, coffee, and all articles n f, manufactured by us, Tbo Republican party has taken the tariff off of tea, coffee, sugar and like articles, and left it on the articles which come into competition with onr own productions. The Democratic party would replace the tariff on tea, coffee and sugar, and would take it off of wheat, corn, pot* toes, butter, oggB, wool and all other farm products, and throw open our porta to the free and unrestrained competition of all the world. Such are the policies of the two parties, and it ought not to take Iowa farmers long to determine which policy is ths best for them. Since tho passage of the new protective tariff, called the McKinley tariff, prices have very materially changed to the benefit of the farmer. Would it bo wise to cbango this policy? TUB CANDIDATES. MB. WHBELEU, tho Republican candidate for governor, is a farmer who has been very successful in the cultivation of the soil and in the raising of stock. Ho has taken an active part in the societies for tho improvement of agriculture in our state, having been president of the Iowa State Agricultural society and the Iowa Fine Stock Brooders' association. He has no other business than farming, and all his interests and sympathies are with tho farmers. MK. VAN HOUTEN, tho candidate for lieutenant governor,(on wuioh office our legislation so largely depends) is also a practical former, being secretary of tho Iowa State Horticultural society and the Western Horticultural society. He an active worker in farmers' insti tutes, and in full sympathy with evory farming interest. GOVERNOR BOIES, tho Democratic candidate for governor, has earned his chief fame by a speech made last winter at a banquet in New YoTk, in which he declared the cost of raising grain in Iowa was groater than tho price obtained for it. The effect of this opoech, coming from tho governor of the state, was to deprttfs tho agricultural interests of Iowa, to koep out capital and immigration, and to lower tho prices of all farming lands. He has also shown a warm side to the violators of tho prohibitory law, and in many ways has pre- vente 1 the enforcement of the law. Mn. BESTOW, tho candidato for lieutenant governor, is one whose business and interests lead him away from tho farmers of tho stuto. Ho is in sympathy with corporations, and should not be entrusted with tho appointment of committees of the senate. There is not a farmer, nor a soldier, on the Democratic ticket. Republicans should remember that while the chiof issue In tho election may be a state one, yet national issues are also at stake. Iowa will undoubtedly vote next year in the presidential olcc- ' tion as Bhe votes this year in the gubernatorial election. Thoroforo, whilo Republicans may differ on local issues, they should stand togethor on national issues, SOUK HISTOUY. F.J. BECKER, M. D., HOMEOPATHIC I'HYHlCf AN AMI HrilOJ-iON.

Be says: Vote the Republican tloket; and here aro Borne of his reasons: THE SILVER QUESTION. The Republican party approves tho present silver coinage law. Under this law tho secretary of the treasury purchases every month 4,000,000 ounces of silver, at tho market price, and issues new "treasury notes" in payment of the NUM. Of this amount, 3,000,000 ounces are coined monthly, and the whole is stored in the vaults of the treasury. The circulating medium of the country is therefore increased each month to the amount of the price of the silver purchased, or ' about $4,000,000, being fo4,(K)0,000 annually. The profit of this purchase and coinage goes to the gov­ ernment—tbe whole people—and the past year this amounted to nearly $000, • 000. Uudsr this law the entire product of tbe silver mines of onr country, aside from that used in the arts and solenoes, if added to Jhe coinage of tue country. The Demqprnthj p«yty demands tbe reneal'prtbis law anA ,tb« enactment of Mfmppi«we ' ; in> steia., Undw free wouM.te ^iPr >rtdubt to tbe United States mto«»r«fa tyr orery 71 or 60 wtwtb ti itfver ore wpqld receive bettor t^o pipe will |lghtf Mormon Jlijd^btiipr' Ib'^.tp..', m MLQR Wf mi •way back in the fifties the Domo- cratio press declared that "slavery was of Divine origin."—They Wad. Further along, they declared that 'Lincoln was a butcher, Grant a sot, and 'war a foilure.'"—They lied. Before the election of Orover Cleveland to the presidency they promised a reform administration, reduction of taxation and economy in public expenditures.—They lied. In '88, they said that tho election of Harrison meant disaster to the country and a season of business depression.— They lied. A year ago, they were shouting themselves hoarse over the finanoial distresses whioh must follow the passage of the McKinley bill. Everybody can now sea that—thoy lied. And now in 1M01, they aro' claiming that prohibition has ruined the state; that Iowa fsnaors are a set of fools who year after year raise crops at a positive loss of 67 cents per acre, and that the re-election of Boies will, in some mysterious way, whioh they never try to explain, bring about a season of thrift aud happiness to the state. How long will this system ot falsifying fool the people? Isn't it about time for Intelligent voters to say to the Democratic bosses: "Your story may be true, but you've fooled us too often and we can't follow you farthtr," for fear you are—lying C dn.—Wapsie Index.
