Evttry other contest pales before the significance of the ono in New York. So fnr as Ohio is concerned It is perfectly well understood that Major MeKinlny will bo elected. In Iowa, Wheeler, tho farmer republican, will have almost a walk over as ngninst Itoics, the democratic demagogue, who by chance became goyernor of that stalo two years ago. But in New York culminates tho battle which is to set tho pnee for 18!)2. At the ilomocratic convention tho delegates were polled and '2-13 out of 2. r >H declared their preference for David Dennett Mill as tho democratic candidate for prcsldont In 1892. Hint is the race Hint Is being mado and it is not simply n question of whether Roswell I*. Flower or Jo Slont Fnssoll sl.nll bo tlin governor of New York, but it is whether David Hcnnoll Hill with his corrupt nnd crooked methods in polities shall be the next president of the United States, nnd every republican in the stale and evury republican in the nation should arouse himself lo the Importance of this question and see toil that Hill shall be retired to the rear. will cost 90,000,000 and it has commissioners now hard nt work surveying a pathway and when that gap is cut out this vast country will have a through water-way transportation lo Liverpool nnd Europe undor the reciprocity provisions of tho McKinley bill nnd tho imperial management of James G. Maine. [Great applause] Thoy say- in their platform that thoy are in favor of rnilroad control. Why, my friends, Bon Clayton and I lint gang of republicans that luiTc had this Iowa legislature since wo liaye had contvol of tho state, gave you nil of the legislation that controls railways, nnd Iowa's legislation stands far in the lead of the farm or agricultural slates that make the tailroads submit to tho will of the sovereign people. When we got into this last congress, although the bill had been passed by tho last democratic congress to take the eleventh census, they made no provision for taking information nbout farm mortgages. Wo put through nn amendmontto their census law at the beginning of the Inst congress and appropriated $1,000,000 as asked for by the farmers' alliance of Iowa to tako tlio statistics of farm mortgages. I am glad we did it. In the preceding congress it was staled again nnd again in tho democratio press of tlio country nnd It was stated uty nuditor, then as deputy treasurer till 1876. when ho was elected county treasurer. So satisfactory was his administration of this office that he was twico re-elected, tho Inst time in 1879, i with n majority of near 1200. running 342 votes ahead of his ticket. "Ho might have had the office a fourth term, but positively and peremptorily declined. Tho winter of 1882-3 ho spent in Florida, nnd during his absence tho Bnnk of West Union was organized under the state laws. On his return in tho spring of 1883 ho was tendered the placo of cashier and manager, which place he holds to-day, having by wise and conservative management" made this one of the most prosperous institutions of the kind in this pari of the state. In 1885 ho moved to his farm in Union township, where ho has one of the most commodious nnd comfortable farm homes in tho county. His land he tills himself, ns thoroughly superintending tho place as any farmer could. His hours in town are few, there being many days in the busy season when he IUIIVIH tho bnnk to tho S uidanee of others.

COL. HENDERSON AT ATLANTIC. At the fair at Atlantic they gave a day each to the different parties. Col. Henderson had tho floor republican day am! delivered a gie.it speech. We give below only what he said about the parties: "For the pailies in this state we have thumbs and lingers yet on one hand to count them, but if Weaver gets a chance to hatch out any more there is no telling how many he will have. You know Jim i< a prolitie fellow and when ho gets down in that old si\th district where Major Lneey defeated him so handsomely, he goes around and tries to hatch up a new party. He has got a new purl} here, which Mr. Van Wyek. of Nebraska, talked to yesterday. WM have got also a siuion pure prohibition party. Let mo say this thing nbout the prohibition party: If any temperance man after what the republican party has stood up for and fought for, votes for that third party, I don t believe in his temperance sentiment. [Applause. Voices -"Good."] We have stood by the temperance cause until 80,000 has dropped down to Governor Hoies, and that is bad enough. [Laughter and applause.] Now wn have to begin and climb up and those temperance men in the name of justice and the liiinirtiiitv thai they appeal for, should stand with us to every man, woman and child. [Applause.] Now, about this Weaver party—-this Wcnvor- Donnolh-Van Wyek party; Jim Weaver is the mother and Donnelly is the wet nurse. [Laughter.] What part old Van Wyek performs I do not know. Ho stood by tho republican party as long ns they kept him in the United Slates senate. 1 he farmers of Nebraska got tired of old Van and then the poor old fellow got tired of tho republican party. I know him: I have scon him; but friends, every follow cannot liavo a parly in this country. There are lots of b)g, husky fellows here, but there are none of you big enough to be a party all by yourselves. Wo have to work through parties in this republic. There is no other way, and we have lo pick out the paity that comes nearest representing us and our views. Now, if tho democratic pany comes nearest your views, stand by thorn. If the republican party docs, stand by il, but don't go tooling around with thes* side shows. Those side shows, my friends, aro always managed by some main circus; thoy arc inside tlio general amphitheater where the big circus stands, and thoy belong to tho big circus. Tlio republican party is running its own circus, and a pretty lively lot of tumblers you have in Atlantic. [Applause] The democratic parly always has somo sido show. If thoy cannot, coax fellows Into tlio main democratic tent, they will try and get Iheni into tlio side show to look al tho fat woman, so thoy will not go into the republican lout. [Laughter.] Don't make fools of yourselves and go and waste your votes with tlio fat woman. [Laughter.] You had bolter go right straight into tlio democratio circus like a man than be played with and fooled that way. I mean business when I say this. This is not fun. Thoy ni'u trying to make tho farmni '6 bullovo tlint tho republican is not true to thoni. If It woro hot for tho republican party wo would not sue the happy faces wo see in our groat prairies of Iowa to-day. "A friend of monopolies." says Van Wyek. Owned by monopolies," says Weaver. Tho creature of monopoly," says Don- uelly. It is fulso. The republican par- has never failed to throttle monopolies when it could got bauds at their throats. Thoy talk'about trusts. You. heard nbout trusts yesterday afternoon. Jim Weavor has got so ho opens his meetings about trusts and I trust ho elosos his meetings with trusts. It Is a little song that Jim Winner sings. Lot us seo. Tlio democratio party has howled nbout trusts for yoars.. They have iiad tho house of representatives until tho last congress for four con g rosses that I have neon with them in id thoy over pass a law against trustsP Not onol lu iho last congress tho republican party got Into power, il passed an anti-trust law through tho house, through the senate, and signed by Hon. Harrison and the courts of tho country are onforolng it to-day. [Ap pltiuso.] Lot ud seo what the ropubli can party.has dono for tho farmer, lu 1881 tho total appropriation for tho agricultural department was 825!),300. It has risen steadily until in 1890 tho last democratio congress -I am going to give you tholr own liguros- it was $1,709,10').,, A republican congress thou couvoMs; what did it do for ngrl- oulturoP itfflpproprlatud 83,028,108.60. [Applauso.] Wo havo given attention to agriculture unprecedented in tho history of the country and tho domo. orotic platform donouuues us to-day because wo wore tho "billion dollar oougross." But wo will. U!k more about the billion dollar congress as 1 am on that now. Tho republican pur ty gave tho oloomargnrln° law in both house and senate. A large democratic majority was given against it in both house and senate 1 believe. A solid vote of ropubllmms was glvun oaoli tlroo iu favor of It and wo saved that law to the ropiiblionns, striking thereby tho most tyrannical trust that can bs found on earth.; that old tmisl In Chi o»go. Wo h»vo given: this ynav tho. largest appropriation fov water-ways lhat'onu ba found in the history of (ho oountry. Wo appropriated iv half milt- Ion dollars for tlio Hem lpiiv oanal. That we iiad novor boen alio to got through a dumooratio liouso, Senator Wilson repeatedly 'got?

[Applause.] But that is nothing for them. [Laughter.] All you have got lo do is to wail until you get the record and you will prove what you knew before; that they are wiong and trying to deceive the people. You know what a time homesteaders have in proving up their claims: what a hard lime they Iiad in tl.u Cleveland-Sparks administration. We put through a I>i11 in the last eongiess, with all our other hard work, reducing the tarill', pension laws, increasing currency. We passed a law allowing sick hom.-steaders, ivho would losu all then time and labor under the old rule, to prove up Ly affidavit. It is a little thing Inn II carried blessings unto thousands of farm homes pi these western slates and territories. You asked for n meat inspection bill. We put it through. 1'our days of the time of tlio house, with all of our pressure for time, weru given lo agriculture The secretary of tlio agricultural interests of this state, August l'ost, pleaded for three days and I went villi him to Tom Reed and Bill McKinley and other republicans and they gave lour days of the time of the house of representatives to tho committee on agriculture. One of the first bills we put through was the meat inspection bill which the farmer's alliance all over Iowa pleaded for. Did the democratic party help us? Gentlemen, they lillihustercd in the house of representatives against that most just bill. The leading commercial countries of Europe were making a pretext that our moats were bad when thoy excluded them. Germany had exclud ed them. Franco had excluded thotn. Italy had excluded them. Belgium had excluded them, and so on. The meat inspection bill did away with the excuse lo keep out meals aud we put through that meat inspection bill so that excuse could bo dono away with It was in the interests of the masses, of the farmers, of this country, but you found the -democratic party as solid against that as they were against giving pensions t - the old crippluci soldiers of the union. [Anplnusj.] Tlio com initteu of agricultural colleges Iiad passed a bill giving Slo.OOO annually to ach agricultural college iu thu stales of this union. There is yet another thing you asked for. Tho farmers of these western stales asked for help in I heir irrigation. We gave them 83.000,000 lo develop irrigation in tlio Dakota* and other wosler'i stales where the farmers wore sullering. The billion dollar congress!" Wo don't care if it is. Tho country demanded it; thuy wished for it. [Applause.] Take another tiling. Wo liutl that in many of the western states, west of the Missouri, the crops had failed and the homesteaders were not able to comply with the requirements of law to .secure their homesteads. Wo passed a joint resolution, tlio same as a law, which provided that time should bo extended to every homesteader whoro there had been n failure of crops. Did Van Wyek tell you tl.nt yesterday? And yet, ho lives in the belt bonoilttod by tho faithful kindniss of tho ropublicau congress and the republican party Take tlio bureau of animal industries. We havo put that on its feel, giving Kpccial attention to all tho groat industries connected with tho development of animals. Tako tho agricultural experiment stations. Wo gave $728, 000 in tho Inst appropriation bill. A matter that will benefit every farmer in tho groat wosl; nearly ono million dol lars wo giyo to tlm flinnets, who, thov toH-ywi, wo arc trying to rob. Look at tlio cOosn family relationship between tho republican party and the farmer. In addition to that, look at tlio Conger pure lard bill. You know how oar nostly you desirod that; how haul you worked for it. Wo got it through the house but It was a fearful batllo. The democratic parly fought it inch by inoli. Why? Because thoy wore using thoir cotton seed oil and putting it into lard, and branding it as "Pure Family Lar>l." The democrats fought us anil when 1 say tho demooiats I don't moan tlio party in Iowa because tlio south holds the domocratio party in Its uuop onmg grasp, but in spito of Ihom we put it Ihrougn tho house. We tried tho Buttorworth antl-gambllng bill Thon again thoy lillibustorod on tho Buttorworth bill, the meat inspection eminent Illness for the place, tho repub Mean convention of Wednesday selected him ns one worthy to follow in tlio footsteps of him who gave such fnme. lo this senatorial district in tho many years lie served tho district nnd the state in tlie upper house of tho Iowa legist.Mure.

Florida, one could say, is a very peculiar country, and one has to seo to at all understand its curious, I will call it make up. This narrow strip of land reaching so far south between two seas, the lower end down in tlie tropics, as including Key West, it is nearly .100 miles long. Its thousand miles of sea coast, wasdicd by the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico; its great forests of pines; its dense hummocks of live oal and oilier hard woods; its sand, (quart/, md); its great saw-grass swamps, that are being drained, and when the water is out of it the richest farm hunl« I ever saw; its thousands of liltle lake- of purest water, somo of them are called island seas. Ono. Okeechobee, is said to be the largest lake in any one state, and the; everglades that cover SJ large an area of the lower section of the stale, (the term everglade is a swamp, this same saw grass swamp mentioned) much of it unexplored by civilized man. and is the home of what is left of the Sominoles. some '2.10 of Iheni only, with a score or more of blacks which thoy yet hold ns slaves. Florida has a very checkered history. Of tho different nations that held it in fee previous to its purchase by our government, they done but little to develop its wonderful resources, but it is rapidly coming lo Iho front Willi her sisters. But I started to tell of Key West, that city iu the sea. On tho Atlantic side of the sea thero is one unbroken bench from Cumberland Sound to Bys- ci.vi Bay, except a few inlets to interior harbors, while on tho gulf side thero is no ocean bench there is a chain of islands, called keys, from ono end of I he stato to the other. Tho larger portion of these keys aro coral reefs only a few feot out of tho water. Off from Key West are several that are qiiile islands with n deep rich soil that within Iho past few years is being used for winter gardening, raising pineapples, bananas and moiigas. All kinds of early vegetables aro being raised thero that go lo northern markets in winter.

A singular thing to me was that tho tides do not havo a rise and fall of ovor two or.thrco feet. The cily has over 20,000 Jpnople, and one lo visit it ns I did will always ask what it is that lias built up this prosperous city out horo In tho 'sea.
