WE h«id a talk with our clothier, Carl Hotter, this waok rolativo to tho cost of clothing under tho woiking of the McKinloy bill. You vemombcr that clothing and woolon goods were to be raisod fabulously by the McKinley bill At least so said all the democratic papers and speakors last fall. Mr. Holtor says that but ouo line of import •d worsted suits hnvo boon rnisod at all, and they are soiling those suits just tho same as last yoar. On some othor lino* of domestic goods prions aro low or ;than oror bofore. So that all tho ehango in prices they aro making is a reduction on some lines. So much for tho oftoct of tho tariff on prices of clothing. And it is just tho snmo in all linos of goods. WE commend tho financial plank in tho democratic platform of the stato of Now York, just adopted, to our friend Butler, congressman from this district, with tho assuranco that Now York is likely to furnish tho platform and tho candidate next year, and that it will bo » gold platform, with a gold candidate running upon it. How do you like It, WaltP "Wo steadfastly adhere to principles cf sound finance. Wo nro ngninst the coinage of any dollar which is not of tho intrinsic) vallio of ovory other dollar ol tbo Unltod States. We thoreforo denounoe the now Sherman silver law, under which one-tenth of our gold stock has been exported and all our •ilvor output is dammed up at homo, as a falso pretense but artful hiudranco of return to free blmotnllio coinage, •nd as tending only to produce a change from one kind of monoraenull- ism 10 another." Nomura that has ooourred in a long time in which we had no voico has given us greator satisfaction than the defeat of B. F. Wright by the Floyd county republican convention as a candidate for representative. On general principles wo have nothing against our brother editor only that two years ago he bolted the republican tloket ami ran Independent, thus electing a democratic representative and making tho house a tie, and to tho further, fact that ho has been making the most begging campaign in his own behalf through h\p papor that wo ever hoard of. Weight is a pretty good man and a V«y good editor, but his groed for office is too disgusting for anything. It don't pay lor a man to blow his own born too loud and continuously In politics. After he has worked humbly in the ranks for awhile (it he does) he juay reach the covefced. goal. THE Louisville Courier Journal is the recognized leader of the democratic press of this country. Recently it contained a long editorial on "Tho Outlook," which was more of a wail than anything else, We have only worn for the following oxtraotsi "If we are to hold our own, and main the vantage ground won twelve months ag&, notT>y the genius and valor of onr leaders, out by n spontaneous and unexpeoted rally of the rank and tile of the people, we shall have to oou- test every inob of tho ground between how and November; audi to say the truth, Jordan is going to be, roust In the nature of the case bo, an exceeding hard road to travel. Suuh I* the situation as WQ enter the full campaign, in Ohio, the illness of Governor Campbell greatly discourages democrat and encourages republicans. Q\ Hear Torh the wpubliqans aro unl- «ed for the Hwt time in fifteen years, «P JKW ^ wndidate, and a feader pifcfihleif have \mn wholly under- rV ^tKjpr line ^mmm THE republican county convention will bo held at Waukon to-morrow (Saturday.) Wo havo not heaid a word as to candidates, and wo presume it will be hard to find men to consent to run for some of the positions, thero being such hoavy odds against tbo party in this county. And yet wo hope the ticket will bo filled with good mon, and then that republicans will work as hard for the ticket as if thero was a chanco of electing tho whole of it. This is the only way to koop up tho party organization. Tho reaction from tho present democratic sway is sure to come, and wo believe it will bofolt this year to an appreciable extent. With good nominations wo aro sure to elect a part of tho tickot this year, and more next jcar. The tide is on tho turning point and we should relax no vigilance now. Next year tho republican patty In tho nation is suro to redeem tho losses of last year and again bo triumphant in congress as well as In tho o.xectitiyo branch. Lot us hold aloft the banner in Allamakee county. BOARD OFSUPEB^ISOB,B--ALI.A- MAKEE COUNTY. Soptotnbor Session, 1801.

The committee appointod to examine the books In tho several county offices made the following report: To tho Honorable Board of Supervisors of Allamakco county, Iown: GENTLEMEN:—In compliance with your appointment requesting an examination of the records and accounts of tiiu county officers, you will kindly accent the following statement, mndo urielly as possible, as my roport: Juno 15, 1891, with J. Loas, Esq., chairman of your board os assistant, wo commenced our duties in the ollico of the clerk of the district court. As the clerks of the district and cir cull courts, up lo January, 1881, received all fees of said office and such additional compensation ns was ordcrod by board of supervisors, It wns deemed best to commence our examination with records of first clork of courts acting under the now law, which provides for a salary, and with tho approval of tho board of supervisors shall bo full payment for all services of clerks, and thot all fees received by such clork shall bo paid to tho county treasurer. Wc therefore made a careful exam Inntioli of all fee books ot district, circuit and probalo cour.s, judgment dockets, mechanic's liens, naturalization and marriago records, and compared tho receipts shown in said books with tho clurk's foe books of receipts. Such comparison with oilier oviduni'us shows eight hundred or more items of various amounts collected and not entered ujx.n said dork's receipt book nor paid lo the county lr"iisuror. Wo did not tind tho clerk s book of fees duo to individuals in said ofllcc. Mr. Uunrco was duly uotiftcd to bo prosent in tho examination of his records, but failed tc appear. A copy of such portion of our finding as he desired was given him for exam illation. J. H. Meier, Esq., niombcr of board of supervisors, was also my assistant three days during tho examination. Attar a careful investigation of the books, papors and other cvidonuu, there appears to bo due from L. M. Boarco, ex-clerk of court, tho followitig amounts: Am't duo Allamakco Co $4,618 00 " " to OHlatcs 68G 45 •' " individuals 1,13-1 79 Miscellaneous funds not distributed 168 76 Total amount $0,488 00 With the assistance of J. Leas and J II. Meier, members of board of supervisors, wo proceeded with the examination of books and vouchers of J. F Dougherty, county treasurer, during his administration of said ollico from January, 1886, to August 3, 1891. Wo examined the temporary ami permanent school fund records, board of health, domestic animal, county roads and other funds record and found samo correct. In examining stato treasurer's re eolpts ou Mo in county treasurer's ollico with tho remittances mndo as shown liy the county treasurer's ledger, wo found a difference of $3.-16, which is iu favor of tho county treasurer. Wo enn account for tho above slight discrepancy only in ono way. When the present' treasurer lirst remitted to tho state treasurer funds duo tho stale, shortly aftor going into oflioo, ho remitted tho amount as shown by his ledger less the uxchnngo, which ho afterwards paid to tho stnto. In examination of consolidated school tax fund a difference of nlno cents was fouud ngainst Treasurer Dougherty. In examining tho receipts and disbursements of tho county funds, we Uud a difference of one cent to the treasurer's oredit. Having traced all recoipts of money shown by treasurer's book to tho jour nal, wo then checked journal with ledger and found all balances correct. We found the books kept in a clean, legiblo and ooneiso manner Mid in ovory man uer satisfactory to your oxamining committee. With the assistance of J. Loas, chairman board of supervisors, wo proeood ed to tho examination of tho ofllca of tho superintendent of soheols, J. P. Raymond, tho present incumbent. Wo examined ontraneo cards for teacher's institute, also examination for toachor's oortllloato, numbor enrolled at Institute numbor that was oxamincd and compared with certificate stubs, amount of money paid to treasurer and vouchors for same; found rogister of school oflicors and districts proporly kept. Mr. Raymond's rocords show muoh care for order in arrangement and rollect oredit to himself for tho manner ho keeps his books and accounts. With tho nssistanoe of J. Leas, Esq., we also made an examination of the books and rocords of W. J. Mltohell, ox-county suporintondont of schools, during his two tonus of ofttco; wo examined the books showing amount of receipts and found all funds propurly paid to county treasurer. Mr. Mltoh­ ell kopL his hooks without blots and ornsures In a very creditable manner. With J. Leas assistant wo also examined tho rocords of L. Eells during his two terms of county superintendent of public bohools; the same oau bo said for him and his rocords as was staled of Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Raymond. Tho rocords ot all the superintendents named aro a credit to each and prove their ability to manage the affairs ef our public schools. With too assistance of J. Leas, Aug. 12th, wo oommonood the examination of tho rocords of the auditor 's ollico. Tho examination committee having their own private interests whloh required their immediato attontion, examination was postponed for a few weeks. All the above is respectfully submitted; H. O. Dayton, examiner. " On motion the roport of tho oomnilt- teo was aocopted and ordered published; and it is further ordered that said committee- complete tho examination In tho auditor 's office and also the records In tho sheriff's ofUoe and haye tho same for submission to this board at their next regular session. On motion the county attorney was instructed to commence prooeetllngs in the diatiiot court, at once against L. M. Boarco, ox-olork of the district court, and his bondsmen t'i collect the. amount due the county as shown by { tho report of tho examining oommitteo. and that J. F. Dayton be eraployod to assist him in said oase. On motion O. O, Howard was appointed oounty sealer ot weights and measures of this county. and without a handle, turned over a man's head, bottom upward. Tho attiro of the women differs from that of the mon chiefly in tho absence of a head-dress. In somo places, how- ovor, thoy wear at times large basket hats, so unwieldy that both hands aro required to keep them in position. The religion of tho Koreans is a religion of traditional custom rather than of firm conviction or Btrong fooling. Their ideas of God, of duty, of ctcrn'uy, aro vaguo. and havo little practical effect on their character and life. This fact has a two-fold significance in relation to mission work. On tho one hand the Korenn mind is not one that responds readily to any kind of religious influence. On the other hand, tho fake religion now in possession does not, for that reason, place a serious obstaole In the way of tho truth. Thero is not so much weeding to be done as in some other placos, tho soil is not so forti'.o. Tho Methodist Episcopal church was tho lirst protostant church to arrango for mission work in Korea. In Juno, 1884, tho Uoy. Dr. Mnclay, of Japan, visited Seoul and received from tho king tho assuranco that no objoctlon would bo mado to tho Introduction of Protestant Christianity into tho country. St., New York City. —Wide Awako for October has a pleasure in store for all young lovers of English literaturo m the form of a narrative called "The Maidens of tho Lakes," they being tho young daughters of the three hike poets, Dorothy Wordsworth, Edith Soulhey and Sara Coleridge, lovely girls, to whom Wordsworth addressed his poom, "The Triad;" thoro aro portraits ot tho throo girls in ciiily manhood, and vlows of tuoir homes and favorilo haunts; the nrticle is by Miss C.

Bates; also a sbortor and vory curious ouo, "Tho Joint Snako." Thoro aro three stories, "Edith's Guincn-Pig," by Esther George, "Jessie's Chickens." by Hattie Tyng Griswold, nud *'A Night with Russian Wolves," by Lieut.-Col. Thorndike, whoso titles smack of animal life, but all *hrco tiro storios of human nature Two interesting folk-talos aro given, tho Norse story of "Why tho Son is Salt," and tho Moqnl account of "Tho Genesis of the Earth and Moon." Margaret Sidney's Peppers Serial is iuteusoly interesting this month, but although one numbor more brings tho story to an end, this "ond" is not to be g:iessod by tho renders. ' "Marietta's Good Times" deals with a nionkoy theater. "Miss Matilda Archambeau Van Dorn" does credit to hersolf and her ancestors, though her immediato relatives wore aomolimes of a contrary opinion. "Men and Things" is full of good original anecdotes, and there aro many readublo poeuis nud enjoyable pictures. $2.40 a yoar. li. Lolhrop Company, Boston. An Idoal Wife.
