Tto Postville Weekly Review KMffVILLB, flATDAY, DEC. B. W. K.BUBDIOK.Bditor.. CONGRESS. Mnhrid at the Pottofltu at PoittilIt a$ i$»n4-itasi .Yait*r. Alf ABSXTBD|iPO»ITION. The latest nnd moat nbeurd position of tho prohibition extremists is that if tho prohibitory Inw mint be repe»led tlioro rutist bo no license lavr iti ill stead-, but absolutely freo wliiskoy; as to liconio an evil in wrong; and if it I* right to sail it at all it is right to make it as freo an any olhar traffic. Wo nro astonished that anybody in thi/i day and ago should promulgate such doo- trino, aad especially thoso who pose as temperanee men. DO they know what they are saying? Do they know that * free' traffic puts liquor into every grocery, rostuuraut ami hotel, and may put it into every store of every namo and natiireP Do they know that if it is froe and unrestricted it may bo sold or given to children, drunknrds and everybody clso sevon days and nights in the weok, making It if possible, jiint a little worse than it is hern under prohibition? Tho position of these men and newspapers reminds us of a spoiled child, who declare* if he can't hayo everything he wants ho will destroy everything ho already has. Theso men do not seem to consider that tho vast majority of the states of this union hare doclared for license instead of prohibition, nnd are living under it to -day, regardless of the '-wrong" there is in it. Kelther do they consider that evil is still in tho world, although moro or less efficient means have been exerted for its extinction for six thousand years. The aamo argument would tear down tho churches and sot aside all moral roforuis because' a[ majority of people haro Not yet accepted (tho faith, nnd probably novor will. Even n majority of tho '•heretics" don't want this done. Nearly all of them concodo that no matter how many .fnliacios may bo wrapped up in it, tho world is bettor for Christianity. If thoio were ten hypocrites to one genuine christian Christianity would still bo a good thinf for the world, and it would still pay to hold aloft tho banner of the eross. And the same is true of temperance. The stato has repudiated prohibition, tho majority of the peopio belioring that it is not the bo^t way to deal with tho quostion. But in deciding against prohibition they lmve decided in favor of high license and local option. This gives overy community that wanted and could enforce prohibition, prohibition still; and to those localities whore it was not and eould not be enforced it gives rostrnint and curtailment of tho traffic, as well at a relief to the lax pnyors. In all tho "opinions" that wo haro neon cxpressod we never havo soon a sound argument adduced why Crin- nell, for instanco, whore prohibition has always bocu enforced, should doinand that Postville should havo prohibition; whon practically no effort hns over been made here to enforce it. ij is a Rood thing for Grinnell, porhaps. Lot it continuo to have it. It ha* fur eight years proved no poislble good in Poktrillc. For the same reason wo •liould be" allowed ' b to try'high liconso. And of course all other localities in tho state tho same. If, as stated, high license is as impotent to control it a* prohibition, what harm is there to tost it nnd see? If it shall prove to be true it is a matter o( but short duration to change back to prohibition, and if thit is douo, after a'-trial of license, prohibition will then bo enforced. The demand that tho republican house should stand for resubmission is .equally absurd. That wn attemptod two years ago and the thou democratic bouse prevented it, jest as tne demo­ cratic,SBUAIO will now do. Ail such talk is bosh, and only intended to stavo tho matter off two year* moro, so as to give everything to the democrats. The republicans in the house must not pose obstructionists again this winter, if they have any regard for the future of the party. They are in a position to dictate the term* of a liconso law i but they must not haggle about resubmission or free whisky. «l I', I M.M.^U.. m SHA/IOR ALLISON was interviewed in Chicago on hi* way to Washington. He admits that prohibition boat the republican party in Iowa, and thinks tkat if tho democrat* aro really sinoure in their desire for local option and high license It is Tory probable that the republicans will not stand in their way. But they will be ecpeoted to present an acceptable bill. Bo thinkn that tho matter will be so dlsposod of that the republicans will easily *uoooed next year, both in the state and nation. Ho is of the opinion that Mill* will finally be oltoicn speaker, and think* he •hould be, as ho mors nearly represents the view* of hi* party on national question* than any of tho other candidates. Hi* *elootiou would moan a square issue next year between protection* and free trade, and this is what Senator Allison desire* to see, lie also thinks' that both house* will pas* free coinage hut that the president will veto it, A t«w wester* republican **aator* are favorable to it, which will doubtless enable It to pass that body. Promotion MdHmlttd coinage rill te tho war' or* of the, republicans noxt year, andthe/willwfa; • ';, »^sjse »»*3s»WR*9 »*«saw, ' TB« florn crop of low* fof 1891 is, a* "- reported by the P*tion»l department of tgrlouUure, NtdWMWQ buili*]*, At ;»* iconte •> bu»tii| thil crop «IOD« it worth 962,ai1 t m6fqi^h\vijam then the ••otto uplMie P'Vlib goid and' •liver,, vl tba Valted -'^U* duriftj; fb« :p'«f ' ^ ! iQibep.i:etly'gooflovldeuoe tbit Congress will conveno next Monday. For the past ten days tho domocralio hesls havo been assembled in Washington waging a rcdhot warfaro oyer the speakership of the house. Tho light hns been hottest between Mills, of 'fox- as; Crisp, of (ieorgis; nnd Springer, of Illinois, with McMillan, of Tennessee a good fourth, still* is said to rcpresont the ultra frog trade wing, and the election of any other man will bo a cold blanket to the great democratic campaign plank. Hut no matter who is elcctcd.'sponker the democratic house, with its 145 majority, must go on record, not only on thu tariff but on the silver question. It will not do for thorn to play thi rolo of obstructionists trr. y at tho forthcoming. *e*sion. .tust frame and pass such a tariff bill > .id such a silver bill as thoy wish to go before the conn- try on next. year. Tho people will •xpoct nnd will demand this at the hands of the majority. Last year, with a slender republican majority, the republicans met tho issues squarely and framed and passed laws in accordance with their pledges. If the democrats seek to evndo or postponeo action now it will bo attributed to cowardice and will insure their dofeat much more certainly than a courageous coarse would do. To 050 a slang expression tho democrats are "in. it," and they must show their baud. If they aro iu favor of free trade, or a radical reduction of the tariff, they must say so. All bills relative to finance must originate- in the house. Hence their duty pi plain. If thoy reduce the tariff generally thty must restore tho duty on sugar and repeal tho bounty. This will bo a tender subject to handle, but lliey can't ovado it. Altogether tho democrats In congress have n rough and rugged.road to travel during tho, next fow months. Thoy aro between tho devil and tho deep sea. Tho republicans have been In tho same lix many limos and know how to appreciate it. The only difference is that tho republicans havo always stood up to tho rack manfully, while tlte normal condition of the other side of tho Irons* has boen to object and to interpose dillatory motions. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. THE BIGHT RING. It seems that Indiana U taking the load in the ttlaino boom, strange as it may appoar. Last weak a "Plumed Knight" club was organized in Mntieio, Ind., with a membership of 300. A dispatch to the later Ocean says: "A numbor of stalwart republicans held an enthusiastic meuling in; thu city building last night, and organized a Blaine club, thought to be tho first in tho union formed for tho campaign of 1892 boaring the namo of the I'luniod Knight. Tho club is pledged first to the support of the principles of republicanism and then to the suppoit of tho grandest living oxponont of thoso principles for the proiidentixl nomination next year. Every somimeut favorable to protection, reciprocity, sound monoy, and a fair vote and honest count, was lustily cheered, and there was general agreement that no factions are rocogniztd but ail era republicans. A constitution of- the following declaration of principles was unanimously adopted: 'As republicans wo believe in the protection of American industries; in maintaining tho host market fur farm products; tho highest romunorntion of labor; tho host dollar in tho world; liberal pensions to old auldiers; protection to American citizeas at homo and abroad; reciprocity with foreign nations, as inaugurated by that matchless statesman, James (4. Blaine, for the exchange for such matorial and products as aro not brought into competition with thoso producod in our own land; the right* of evory citizen, white or blaek. to east one ballot and to havo that ballot honestly counted. 'Wo Hgrco to oxert ourselves, as far as our inlWnco may oxtond, to secure tho nomination of tho Hon. James G. Blaine for president of tho United States at tho republican national convention to be. held at Minneapolis, Minn., Juno 7, 1892.' " It is generally concodod that Blalno will bo nominated by acclamation at Minneapolis next Juno unless ho shall poremptorily decline. Tho testing is so intense that nothing else can possibly proyent this. And still we think it is very doubtful if ho will allow his name to bo used.' If he docs not there will bo no opposition to President Hnrrison. We commend tho platform of principles adopted by the Mnncio olub, nud whoever may bo nominated the party cannot do butter than incorporate them in Hs platform. If Blatno is not nominated his priuoiplos must be adopted as the guiding star of the oampalgn. Thoso priuoiplos are invincible no matter who may be nominated.' —It was summer yestorday—it is win- tor to-day. by a inrgo majority. —Tho social sonson lus again oponad, and neighbors nnd friends meet nrouud tho well filled board to talk of their joys and sorrows. Wo havo boon fortunate enough to be present at two of theso gathering* of Tate, one at J. S. Mott'sand tho other at Goo. Redhead 's. They wero both Tory pleasant occasions. —A wreck on the Burlington road on Tuesday delayod the north bound passenger train five or six hours. A stono hail dropped off of a construction train •n tho track, which ditched the passenger engine and demoralized the train considerably, though no one except the fireman was hurt, it wes a narrow esespo. —Tho following notice regarding tho desth of John Swonson was handed us yestorday: •'Jehn Swenson was born near Christiana. Norway, Feb. Will, 1846. He was married to Oline Olson, Dec. 27, 18G6. He csmo to America in 1871, and residod iu Post township, Allamakee county, Iowa, until tho time of his death.

M. r m J —Wo are sorry that somo of our roadsrs did not understand tho meaning of tho word "peer," ss wo used it la»i wook. If they will consult Webster's dictionary they will find tho word defined as follows: "Peer n (first definition.) One of the samo rank, quality, endowments, character, or tho liko; an equal; a match; a mate." And in this sense tho word was used. Wo novor draw invidious distinctions botwoon ladies. We think too much of thorn all for that. IT is wonderful to see w.ith what facility otuv.deniteratlc friend* champion the Australian ballot in localities and stfttos where, it is not needed,, or whore the laws nro already adequate to insure: a free ballot; but in sootions where everybody not only knows but concedes that there i* no prutonso of a freo ballot,.aud a«:» result the democracy Jst 'overwhelmingly in tho Moen- daut.wh dp not hear a whisper about tH« A,visU'&lie>n ballot. >Ve are perfectly willing that evory stato in tho union ehould adopt, it—in fact we would like to see it * natlounl law. And further wo have no objeollon whetoyor to its adoption la lows, alone, although it would oause a great deal of unnecessary trouble and annoynnco here, But whet seems *o rjdloulon* is tho Idea of tho democrat* In Iowa being such •ticklers for the system whore it 1« uot particularly needed, and so unalterably opposed to It where It is so sorely needed. It would at loait have a hotter look if this agitation had commenced somewhere,in,the south. —New that they havo an or^'an of thoir own we expect of courso that some of our doinoorat ic friends will lenvo us. W* eannot expect to hold thorn all, but wo ought tt gel enough republican subscribers who havo not taken the REVIEW to make up for this loss.

Baldwin Dead, A telegram from Kansas on Wodnos day brought the sad intelligence of the death of Mrs. Baldwin, mother of DUY id W. and the sistors, aftor a short illness, from pneumonia. She will bo brought back hore for interment, perhaps boforo this paper goes to press. The family wero on their way to Toxas to spend tho wintor, and had stopped in Kansas for a short visit, when Mrs. Baldwin wn* stricken with the dread disease. It is a sad cuding to what was hoped would bo a pleasant trip Our sympathy is extended to tho bereaved in their great affliction.

Wo quote the following aeoeuut of tho abovo montiooed affair from the Woostor Volco nnd tho Temple Court "A vory pleasant homo wedding took place at tho residence of Mr. uud Mrs. J. M.
