The Postvillc Weekly Review POSTVILLB, SATDAT, DEO. 10. W. N.BURDIOK.Bdltor. MnUrtd at the Postofflf at Poittitlt at t$*n4-ttati .Vatt *r. 11K. BHOKAW, Ilia slnglo tax advocate, circulates a petition diking con* grail to Investigate llio tingle tax question. By persuasion, and by tanking it appear that tho siguor n not comniit- tod to tbo theory, lie get* A good many republican! to aign it. We cannot sign anything giving aid and oomfort or prominenco to nny third patty movement, no matter what party it may be. We hare two prominent political par- tie* la this country, one of which, line* their organization, have controlled this country, and doubtless will contlmto to control it. As wo view it tho whole object nnd aim of this parly, like nil other third or fourth parlios, is to Attempt to divide and distract the republican party, always for the benefit of the democratic party. Nobydy over knew them to militate in favor of the republican party, or to accomplish anything for their own party. The prohibition party had in it a single principlo that to tho toniperanco man lookod right, but what has It ever accomplished save the defeat of tho republican party, once in a presidential election, and twice in tho stato eloclion in Iowa? And so witli the greenback party. It bad ouo plausible pica, moro money, and lis object and aim was to demoralize the republican vote in the interost of tho democratic party. Us greutoat success in this slato was the election of Calamity Weller to congroas, to the disgraco and chagrin of everybody but Wollor. And now tho single tax ghost arises among the shadows. As its nanso Implies it is a party with ft single idea, and that opposod to thn accepted views of the civilized world sinoo the dawn of civilization. What is tho object of this chimerical ofl 'ihoot of democracy* Certainly no expectation that tho American peoplo will evor surreadar the title to 'heir homes and go back to the bar- barious idea of no property in land. Not at all. But if a party can be organized through the blandishments of smooth; talkers and writers, like Iionry Goorgo and his lieutenants, •which shall largely draiv its morobcr- .-slilp from the republican party, it will assist groatly in the election of tbo democratic ticket, as did St. John and Ben [Sutler in 1884. Tills Is tho whole raal- tter Jn a nutshell as we viow it. Democrats aro -prominent workors in all theso third party mnromonts, Wut when it cemca to ruling you will find their ticket soundly democratic to tho core, leaving the republican contingent to yoto the third parly ticket alone, as was the case with tlie farmers alliance tickot in Minnesota last year. As for in wo have- no use for third party movemoiUi. IN A NUT SHELL. Tho Sioux City Joarnnl ("rp.) hummers it down and places ii in a very •mall nut shell. The tc-mporanco alliance took* wise and talks about otlior istnos, Mr. Hunter, of tba democratic slate committee geta himself interviewed and emphasizes tho effect of tho tariff, but the bard facts are thnt prohibition and prohibition alone ie what "struck Billy Patterson." Tho Journal •AT*: "What does the late Iowa election signify, anyhow, if not a state disapproval of state-wide prohibition. There sooms to be a doubt in aorao quarter* on this point. There is even assertion and sophistry to the effect that tho election doesn't prove a change of mind on tho liquor questiou. Of course there may bo those—A few —who want to transmogrify the republican party into a prohibition third party —to St. Johnlssa it. That is another thing. Suppose the republicans had scoured a majority or a plurality. It would haye been proclaimed as a verdict for tho retentlou of tho state-wide prohibitory law. Wouldu'lilF Year after year the oxtromest prohibitionists pointod to tho majorities for the ropnbfioaa state tlnket as popular approvals of the liquor laws. Were they honest thenP Oh, but the democrats didn't get a clean majority for their ticket this year —only A plurality. The play is on the word majority, ta it? Neither did Larrabee get a clean majority, but his election was Interpretid by the prohibitionists as an approval of the policy of maintaining the liquor law. What's the use of paltering with the terms "plurality" and "majority?" What difference is it to you whethor you are knocked down with a long or a •hort club? The plurality elub with the Iowa people have knocked down i the republican party is only a little shorter—6,000 yotes shorter—than tho majority club. But ft war a knook-down just the same, and that's the main point." THE HOLIDAY SEA90ST. ft'I- >..«.• S PBIKUBI, who la likoly to bo made chairman of the ways aud means' committee of the house, has had himself interviewed in order to give expression to his views as to what the democrats ahoald do with, the tariff this session of congress. His position is a square back down on that measure. He says there it not time to frame, dtsousa and pass a complete Ui'lflf reform bill aud explain it to tho prfeple beforo the presidential eleotlon, and to attempt it would mean as certaiu defeat to tho democrats as the MoKlnloy bill meant to the republicans. If this session, which is a loug ouo, is not long enough time to enact a tariff law when will there be a session long enough? The next suasion will bo * short session, when everybody oon- «ede» thero le-uo lime to taekle such legislation i and before another long aesslon a new congress will bo eleeled, Whloh is mora than likely to be republican, T4><t democrat* hare otiaraoter* Before another inuo of the REVIEW reaches its readers the Christmas trees will have borno their rich fruitage for young and old nnd the natal day of the babo of Bethlehem will have been ushered in. If thero is any season of the yenr when the minds of humanity should be turned both Inward and outward and be disenthralled from the cares nnd perploxities of business life abovo any other it is at tills hallowed holiday season, that speaks sooloqnent- ly to our better natures. The world of business has many claims upon us which wo cannot divorco ourselves from during tho yoar, for tho edict "Ii the sweat of thy faco shalt thou eal bread" applies cfluctually to tho moot of us, and incidentolly to all, rich/and poor alike. We do not roalizosft, but the fact remains that thn labof of tho rich is far moro exhausting, M n rule, than tho labor of tho poor. While they do not labor at tho plow, ai the forge or at tho bench thoy do labor at tho dosk. in the counting room and ofllco; and while no sweat runs down their cheeks the linos of c»re nnd anxiety como into their faces moro quickly than to tho faces o' the sons of toll. Wo all have our turdena to bear, uo matter what our station in life, nnd thogravo opens to each one of as alike at tho close. Thero is no moro fitting timo than tills to tako an inventory of our past lives aud strike a balance sheet Hint wo may determine whether the general trond of our livos is towards tho bettor or tho worse. If townrdi thn latter those quickly roourriiig B anniversaries should teach us Hint there is no timo to lose if wo would harmonize our lives with the spirit of good that scemi to bs lowerod down frua the bending skies at this auspicious season. This inven tory and trial balaneo should have nothing to do with homes and lands, with notes and bonds and mortgages. Thero is time enough for this inventory at olhor seasons of tho year. At Christmas timo we should invoice our good deed*, not our little doedi, our bonevolencos, not our parsimonious and grinding greod of gnln. We should try tU loast for n day or two, to put ourselvo* on rapport with tbo lifo of him whose birtli wo^ eelebrato, no matter whethor we' boiievo hiui to bo God or man. In either case his life was worthy ot imitation and all com mendation. And the question arises, how can we best eclobrnto Hie birth of tho Naza< renoP Wo answer, by doing to tho boat of our nbility what he did ou earth, which was going about doing good, always doing unto others as wo would wUh to bo dona by. This with most of us is oasy when our own fami. lies are to be tho recipients of presents or good deeds, for in this caso selfish, ncss can be preserved. But how is it when we think of going outside, where nolthor ourselves or on:* loyed onos can personally sharo In the benefaction? This is the test of benevolence. While it is true that charity begins At home it Is oqaally true that it should not ond there. Tho spirit of truo bonovoleaco and charity reaohes outward to the mf feting and tho aad and recognizes tho brotherhocd of man. lu this sense wo aro all of one family, children of one father, nnd henco should be concerned aliko, though perhaps not iu tba lame degree, for the good of all. This is tho plain teaching of Christ, and happy shall we bo If on this anniversary day we shall lay soltishnoss aside and opea our hoarts to tho benign influences of lovo and fellowship, thus culliug down upon ourselves and all with whom we have to do the benedictions of him who gavo his life for humanity, tho low as well ns tbo high, tho poor as woll aa the rich. If we shall do this we shall find that after all lifo may be worth the living evon bore, to say nothing of the possibilities that may await us beyond tho win tor storms of life In the land of whioh we droam, towards whioh every Christmas day brings us one tailestono noarer. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. —Rev. Mr. Lewis, of Waiicoma/f preached two sermons last Sunday in the Congregational church here, Rnv. Burton exchanging with him. The latter has been assisting tho former iu rovivnl work for some timo at Waueo- ma. -The churches will all have Christmas troo entortatn'meuts as usual. Tho children could not get along without them, aud somo of the older ones fool about *ha simo. Mince wo failed to get any lotfks Inst year we aro without hopjs/fn the world. TUB message of President Harrison, lately submitted to congress, elicits praise from all partios except tho most hidebound partisans of the other household of faith. It it necessarily quite lengthy, ns there were a great maay questions to be enlarged apon outside of tho ordinary routine. The relations with Italy and the South American states aatiu'Ally come in for considerable space. Every question, inoluding the tariff, is handled In a stAtesmauliko manner, and if He recommendations wore carried out the oouotry could not fall to prosper. One thing Is oorlaln. If Blaine should deoll ne to be a candidate aud Venvo Pcosldout Harrison the uncontested nominee no American would blush or foel huralllatod shculd he be re-elected t Ho is not a raau ot great pretensions, but he Is A safe man, aud backed by Blaine in tho state department he has given an administration of the widest range of ability and statesmanship that this eou»lry has had for many years, and the second will be better and grander than the first. Should he be the aoinlneo there, are very few democrats but soorotly believe he will be eleotod in spite of fate nnd ih» demoorratie party. Wo may have occasion to speak further of the massage at another time. Wa only wish that the few Iewa democratic papers who are booming Gov, Boles tor tho hoad of tbo presidential tiokot next year could consummate the|r-closlres. Ho wouldn't carry a single state north of Mason and Dixon's line. When it came to that oflloo Iowa would not know him.

Installation Tuesday ovon- ng, Dec. 20th. i » » —More' rain fell last Sunday night and Monday than has fallen at any ono time before for many months. The ground is now protly generally soaked on tho surface and there is not liable to be any danger of the wells going dry for tho balance of the winter. But it was a bad backset on holiday trade and the poultry businoss. —The gymnastic entertainment at Turner hall last Saturday drew out a crowded bouse nnd gave good lalisfnc- tion. If we were a young man wo should object to the young l.idios learning to use tho Indian clubs so promis cuously. In after lifo it may give them unpleasant prolieiency in the uso of the broomstick.

The Graphic made Its first appearance on Friday aflornoon of lust weok, aid is a neat aud clean seven col. folio, "patent" inside.

But we are of the opinion that Bro. Medary will And it impossible to hold, sanuy of them after the holidays, as we always have found it so. Whilo we know tiiore is no field here for two papers, and both cannot poiui- bly exist, we would just as soon havo Mr. Medary for a competitor as any ono else, and if wo are to bo "sagrj^ f.ccd*' it won't hurt ns any more to have him do the job than to have any other man do it.

ONS TEAR OF COMMERCIAL GROWTH. 1 [Minnonpollt Tribune.] The past 13 months, under tho auspices of tho "Homo Market" administration, havo wltnossed the greatest development of American oommerco iu the natioa's history. The motto of tho republican party bns boon—make sure of tho homo market first and then reacli out for the markets of tho world. That republican moasttres are : not reaching out for the world's markets in vain is evidenced In tho following catalogue of commercial conquests and aids, as, witnessed to in the president's message: Our foreign trado in'. 1891 WAS over $400,000,000 greater than in 1890, wk^ok Wat the greatest in American history.'
