That the best dairy cows, the best bred bogs or the best of any other animal or product are most profitable is true, but to attain the ighest measure of profit, a study must be made of the buyer's ideas of the condition in which he wants the product delivered. 6BWATOBIAL TIOPT.

We throw out some suggestions of what the republican party has done for labor and its dignity and elevation Wo ask all voters and pooplo to investigate tho stibjoct for themselves. Wo believe in tho people. We believo the betterment of the condition of tho mns- ses of mankind is tho truo end of nil government, of all polities, of all religion, of all civilization. Each of these fail just in the degrco it docs not promote that result. If the republican party is not tho best and wisest and heartiest labor party in the United States wo do not ask anybody else to belong to it. Wo think it Is. Let ovcry voter examine the caio fully and sec if it is not. A GOOD PLAN. Last week's Waukon Democrat, in )iopo of clluching a tariff argument, had an intervlow with our friend, II. 0. Dayton, who is engaged in tko canning business at Waukon. In the intorview of courso tho Democrat reporter brought out tho price of cans, eliciting the following response: "Owing to tho rise in tho price of tin from the ©fleet of tho McKinley tariff Nvo cftftnevs arc compelled to pay an additional 32} cents on 100 cans of the "Corn sUo And 62} couts on tho totucto stae oy<iV that of fornior years." "Who pays the additional amount?" askod tho reporter. "The consumer, sir, is obliged to pay In tho end this extra amount," replied Mr. Dayton." Now this dialogue suggests a question or two. With tho figures given above It is evident that a can of corn will cost less than ono-thlrd of a coot mora than heretofore As wo have no change representing leas than a cent the qnoation is how can the consumer pay this tax? If it is said that tho consumer usually buys' throo cans at a tlmo. and thus a cent can be added, we auk If this would bo reasonable? Supposing they wero sold formerly at throo for a quarter do you supposo the grocer would domand twouty-slx cents for three to got his tariff tax baok? Tho idea is too absurd for argument. The consumer will buy them just tho same as before. Tho "tax" will bo paid by tho oanner or wholesaler, or both, as they may elect . But on tho "tomato size," which Includes poaehes, apples and all other fruits, tho additional cost, according to tho Intorview, Is a little over a half cent. It the consumer pays this tax he must buy two onus, when the same dilemma of an extra cent comes in. But supposing he does pay his extra oent on two cans. How much U be out nfter sweeteniug them with sugar that has been reduced a cent and a half a pound by the same law that caused the rise in the cans? And, bear in mind, this Is tho first half of the first year that (lie Inw has been in force, and there has been no time to develop the tin Industry. This is tho thinnest "tariff picture" , we have yet seen, and prove* absolutely .nothing, save th.H thereto.**, been a slight rise In the wholesale price of tin, which i« too obscure to affect retail transactions. There Is a moral certainty that oven this advance will gradually be remoyed, and that in a short time, wholesalers will buy tin cheaper than ever before, just as was the oaso . with uteel rails and wire nails. The bare foot is the people save more in .ohoap sugar In n month than thoy pay In all the additional tariff "tax" in a year. All the honest inquirer has to da to demonstrate this is to step into any store and compare present prices wh}li the prices of a year ago. The tariff lwue was set for 1800 only.

In growing the necessary grain more or less straw and fodder will be scoured, which, if properly managed, will make u cheap feud, and wheru a system of rotation is carried on more or loss grass both for pasturo and liny will bo grown. With good shelter young cattle, horses or mules can be kept In good condition during tho winter with very little grain if they can liavo plenty of fodder, and during tho summer grass in tho pasturo can bo made nearly or quite their whole food. Whilu bogs will make a fair growth with good pas Mirage it is generally profitable to Iced them some gralu oven during the sum mor. Ctittlu can bo pastnrud during tho summer aud fed largely upon fodder during tho winter until '.hey arc throo years old, and If comfortably sheltered will need but littlu grain With good pasturage they will be in a fuir marketable condition in tho fall when thoy are throe yoars old. Horses,* mules nnd^shcep can be kopt In the same way nnd can bo mado ready for market with very little grain Hogs, however, must bo fattened large ly on grain, nnd raoro or less grain is noodcu by the work toaius nnd milk cowd. In raising grain for them more buy and fodder tfi.in will be needed will b* secured, and by purchasing mill feed to go with thorn all can be used to a good attvantnge. This plan admits of having a considerable acre ago seeded down to grass for pastures aud meadows and lessens the labor considerably. Uy feeding all of tho products out ou tho farm, with tho oxceplion of tho whoat, and buyln^ moro or loss null feed to uxe in connection with tho grain nnd foddor will make a great saviag, and applying all of the manure possible the fortuity of tho soil can bo kept up. Of course everything that can bo usod for food should be saved and every advantage bo tiikwn to secure nil of tliu food possiblo, nnd thou feed out to the bost advantage in order to roalizo the largest pro tit. N. J. S. PROFIT IN THE BEST. (Iowa Homestead.) It is the bost of everything sold that brings profit to lb* producer; products that are from poor to medium are almost invariably marketed at a loss. Milk way bo made at a cost of a ceut and n half a quart, or with feed in the samo market it may cost four cents In tho one case there is profit, in the other IOBS, and the dlQ'oreuoo lies in tho fact that In the ono case the best feeding and caro has been used nnd in tho other all tbeso essentials have been of the poorest. Tho milk when obtained may be mado into gilt-edged butter that will sell profitably, or into an art! ele that will not soil at all except for axle-grense. In iho production of. meats good feed may be wasted on scrubs at a loss, Intelligently fed to good stouk at a profit. The farmer who brings in for snlo a lot of dirty clover seed will lind thtt he. is paying in the reduced price he receives for it, not only tho cost of cleaning it, but a large allowaneo for WRSIO in oloanlng, and a profit beBides to the buyor who undertakes to put It lu shape to sell again. All along tho line of .production the principle will hold that quality governs the prloo and that profit is found only in producing tho best. It U not always the farmer's Idoa of what is the best, however, that brings tho profit. It is the buyer's notion of the pest that forms tho standard. In butter, for example, everything else bolng equal, that makn of butter whioh koeps up it* Juno oolor all tho year 'round will bo a little moro desirable than that of whioh no two ohtirningL •re aliko, although it bo well understood by both buyor and seller that the color 1»duo, in the onooaso to the use of an Innocuous "buttor-oolor," and to It* absenoo in the other Tho buyer want* to please hi* eye as woll ns his K elate if ho can do so without harm to iiuself, and he is ready to pay seJie thing for the privilege of doing so. In tho sale ot almost nil articles of luxury attractive peeking increases salableness and thus add* to the prloo, It I* not in luxuries nlouo, however, that the buyer's idonsof what Is best must be conformed to if tho best prices are expected. Markets must always be studied it marketing is to bo done to the best advantage. Perhaps ono of tho most strlkiug Illustrations of this fact is exhibited oy tho bog market, The time was when tho animal that would bring tho most money per potinJ was a l\og at, say fifteen months old, weighing three hundred aud fifty pound* or upward. Any one who has watched the recent market reports with any' oaro, however, will obsorve that the light bogs, from one hundred and eighty to two, hundred pounds bring the highest pfloe per pound.

The Republican party of Iowa, in con- v^ntion aiwemblcd, gives renewed expression ot devotion to the principles of the national Kepubllcan pariy, ana declares acceptance of those principles to bo the bond ot union with the Kepubllcan party of Iowa. We commend the patriotic, wise nnd courageous administration of President Harrison. We command the Republican party In tho last congrecs for Its redemption of pledges made to the people rut to a revision at the tariff In tho interest of home Industry, and for It* work in buhalf of lil>- crol provision for pensions tor the old soldiers, In accordance with the pledges of the nation. We approve tho coinage act, by which the entire product of the silver mines of the United Stato* Is added to the enrrene; oftbe people, and out of which ex perl mcnt may come a wise adjustment of financial questions liberal towards western Interests. We commend most heartily tho policy that has been Inaugurated looking to reciprocal trade relations with other peoples of tbo American continent, and tho administrative, efforts now making for the enlargement of foreign markets for American beef and pork. Wo assert that tho Republican party stands of record in every state of this Union in favor of elections based upon the freedom of the individual consc'once of the citizen, and that the Republican party may be trusted in Iowa or in any state, to promote any plan of reform, Australian or other, calculated to extend this liberty and to further protect the parity of the ballot. Whilo Inviting to our shores the worthy poor nnd oppressed of all nations, wo earnestly commend laws that pro toot our country and our people against tho Influx of tho vicious and criminal classes of foreign nations and the importation of laborers under coutract to competo with our citizens; and earnestly approve the rigid enforcement of theso laws and of such further legislation as may be necessary. We favor such legislation as will Impose upon all classes of proporty, corporate and individual, equally the burdens of taxation. We favor the passage of the Conger lard bill; stato legislation tending to promote (armors' Instltutoa and enlarging tho powers of tho dairy commissioner. Wo regard the world's Columbian exposition as an important event In the world's history, and we are in hearty sympathy with every effort to make ft a success; and in the friendly rivalry of states we should mnko a credftabloexbiblt of Iowa's products. And we favor a liberal appro- f irlation by the next general assembly for his purpose, "that our prosperity aud greatness may be fully exemplified. We tako pride in the record of this state; we recognize that Its growth nnd tower, its prosperity and iu good nnmo, lave been the fruits of its Industrial people, and we believo in such policies, state and national, as will promote justice and wider opportunity among theso classes. To their support, in the f uturo as in the past, we pledge oar most intelligent judgment and most sincere endeavor. We point to the record ot the state under Republican administration for justification in the declaration that wa favor economy and honesty in the administration of public affairs; to that record, also, for judgment that tho Ropnbllcan party has Kept faith with tho people in the obli- S itlons of the post, and upon that record e Republican party Invites continued support aud confidence. We have no apologies to offer to the people, nor to the Democratic party, for the Republican record on the conspicuous Issue in the state campaign th|s year. "In the Interest* of true temperance," and under tho laws of Iowa, enacted by the representatives of its sovereign peoplo, the saloon was made an outlaw in this state, we charge that the outlaw has had the patronage, counsel and protection ot the Demoeratio party; that the Democratic tarty, as it ha* won power, has nullified he law, defied the authority of the state aud the expressed will of the people, and that now appeal Is mode to the electors of the whole state for approval ot the lawless work. We recognize that the issue is law against defiance of law, subordination against insubordination—tho state of Iowa 'nst the Democratic party. We recog- that the issue is between "the intor- * true temperance" and the freedom of indiscriminate traffic. We re- neWMr'allegiance to the people of Iowa, aodwnmlt to them the determination of the iMM, recognising thut the control of the next, legislature by the Demoeratio party mem* statewide license, and that in* eontrol of the next legislature by the Republican party mean* a continuance of opposition to the behests of the saloon power, through the nwlntenane* and enforcement of the law. - We denounce the Demoeratio party of Iowa a* Insincere in Its dealings with the saloon Issue. We charge that party with •srviee to the saloon and purpose to strengthen Us grasp upon the borne* and politics of the state. We cite in proof ot this it* surrender thU year otthe local option feature of the plank ot 1889, under which last year pretense of indorsement by the state was made, and to which pledge was given in petition for legislative authority. We charge that this abandonment of local option is the forerunner of further premeditated betrayal, and that trust in the Democratic party wlH end In complete breaking down ot the temperance legislatlou of the- state, and a com- E leto turning over of the stato,. in every iwnship thereof, to the .pollution and fester of toe saloon, agalust whatever protest ot communities now tree, . < We protest against the re-election of Horace Bole* to the governorship of Iowa, We ohorge that In bis unwise and ambitious zeal to oultlvote the favor of alleged "new allies in the northwest." and upon that strength to commend himself to the favoring grace* ot Grover Cleveland, that he did most outrageously misrepresent the honest, industrious, frugal and prosperous people of Iowa In hi* Reform club banquet •peeoh In tho city of New York on the 83d of December last. We denounce as purposely misleading the alleged statistic* with which the governor assumed to sustain the indictment against the state 1 which bod dignified hi* name. We denounce the, Ottumwa. platform of this year as framed with deliberate purpose to mislead and deceive, wherein *ym- uathy is expressed where now U felt l wherein, help, ia pivpeeed where none ,1* .rendered) M*aro avowed.wblob W4 not "lenued'frC' W.»W»AB«» we V>t and toaaV* Ktaooestly cesmtod goes •very precinct of tin tut* nndiaUsBeM.

OOVKRNOB noim OH THE TABI1T. In hi* letter of acceptance GOT. Boies makes some remarks on the (object of tho tariff. He says; The great industry of Iowa is and must continue to be agriculture, upon tho successful prosecution of which all other business in the state is largely dependent. In no possible manner can this Industry be benefited by our present tariff lawn. For many years our people havo been unnecessarily subjected to a system of legalized extortion that has restricted our markets and diminished the prices of almost everything we sell 0) and increased the cost of very much we buy. How baa our tariff diminished the price* of almost every (farm) thing we bave to sell? What peculiar form produci; has it diminished the price of? Has it reduced the market price of corn, wheat, barley or flax-seed? Ot potatoes, apples or any trait or vegetable? Of poultry, egg*, mutton, veal, batter or cheese? Of pork or beet, hogs, cattle or horses, hay, straw or oats? What farm product has the tariff cut down tho market price of? Can Boies name one? Wbero have the markets of the producer* of Iowa wheat, corn, and pork been limited? He shonld have given some detail on this point. He should have explained that one of the limited market* wa* that of Franco, whioh in 1680 took 48,000,000 bushels of American wheat and last year took bnt 3,000,000. He shonld have explained,'also, that the French and Germon markets for American meat* have been seriously limited to protect the farmers of those countries from American competition. He shonld havo explained that the Austrian market has also been practically closed to the American producers. Were tho markets of those, countries as open a* they were ten years ago the Iowa farmers would have lees trouble in disposing of their surpluses, and would get better prices for them. Governor Boles says our markets were restricted by "a system of legalized extortion," which is with him a synonym for tariff laws. Yot that legislation is not responsible for the closing in whole or in part of any continental market*, Germany and France shot" out American pork not because of tho tariffs of this country, but becauso it was demanded by tbo hog-raisers of those nations. France pnt heavy duties on American wheat not as a retaliatory measure, but becauso French wheat- growers demanded it. Franco and Germany heavily tax oar beef because the cattle-raisers there ask it. The "system of legalized extortion" denounced by the governor is a foreign one, then. It cannot be abolished by repealing the tariff laws in the American statute books,bnt by French and German statutes. Yet there is not a word in Governor Boies' letter from which any one 7 could judge that these restrictions of which he complains -were due to something done on the other side of the water, in France, Germany and Austria, and not on this by our government. In 1880 Iowa farmers had been under a high tariff for nearly twenty years. That which Governor Boies intimate* ia a "system of Ugallzetl oppression" bed been in full force all those years while ho was a Republican and supporting it, Yot they were flourishing. They had good crop* and sold them for good prices. Then came the foreign restriction legislation demanded by the farmers over there, which injured the Iowa farmers, and Boies blames oar tariff laws for itt Governor Boies fraudulently hides the source of the "restriction." Pro ceeding on hi* assumption that tariff law* are tho canse, he would repeal them all, even the provisions of the Mo Kinley bill pntting sugar and molasses and the raw materials of binders' twine on the free list, for ha makes no exception. He wonld open the ports of the United States for the free admission ot French, German and Austrian good* without proviso* or conditions, or reoip rocity, for he has not a word of indorse ment of reciprocity. He wants to open our own ports to their cheap-labor product unconditionally. And when he had done it the French, and Germans, and Austrian* would take no more American wheat and pork than they do now—not a pound. Their farmer* wonld not permit free competition with American agricultural mrplnsee, which wonld break down their high price*. Bole* know* all thi* very well, bnt dishonestly conceal* it. •While Governor Boies is pointing out the wrong road to the Iowa farmer* the Republicans are progressing in the right one. Under the leadership of the president and hi* great secretory of state, Blaine, they are causing foreign nations to abandon a part of their unfriendly •yetema, France ia about to r*move her prohibitory duties 6ta American pork and let it in under * high tax, Germany, dreading Blaine's, retaliation against ber.beet anger, of which we buy eotne eighteen million dollar* worth per year, la preparing to make concession* on some of our product*. Spain has been compelled to lower her exorbitant Cuban duties on our flour, meats and other article*, Braiil and some other South American nation* are throwiaa open their market* to American agricultural product*. A treaty ha* just been conoladed with Ban Domingo to admit free American breadstuff*, Of all this great work not one word in said by Governor Bole* or tho Iowa Demoeratio leader*. They ignore aud •uppre** all that ia being done for the farmer by the Republican administration, The farmer* of that state shonld have too mnoh intelligence and sense to be taken in by the vague, idle, and declamatory talk of their demagogue governor, who ia anxious to bold on to hi* .iob, and when November come* they shonld give, him an indefinite leave of absence and elect *> farmer in hi* iteadi: .; •• •• • ' • WHAT'S THB MATTksU - What's the matter with the Democratic organ* in Iowa that they ihould be abandoning the massive argumentative style with which they opened the campaign? Why have they ceased to Iterate the famon? diamond pin story, even if they couldn't agree within $15,000 of the value of a |50 ornament? Wherefore have they so suddenly become dumb to the beauties of the mortgage w'.tch with such sonorous dignity they declared atood on the ree- ord against Wheeler's farm? What has hecome of their intellectual brilliancy that it shonld cease to shine resplendent in descriptions of the farm of Van Houien? Where is Boies' bottle of sugar No. 18 Dutch standard? Where ars those long Hits of percentage* of increased prices which a few month* ago these Demoeratio organ* were declaring the people wonld have to pay for everything they bought?

Where is Sovereign—the man whom Governor Boies acknowledged to be unfit for the office to which he appointed him?

It is psrtinent to ask who are "we" who are doing that particular kind of educating, it not the governor first among all tho nullifiers of law. The pardon of Hunohrath, one of the Haddock conspirators, the countenancing of Stormy" Jordan's "road to hell" at Ottumwa, are of themselves convincing evidence. On the top of this a few day* before the governor delivered hi* Cherokee speech in which he announced that the saloon bad a divine right to exist, he made a complete jail delivery of J. B.
