frOeTVlXM*, BAT-DAY, JAN. 33. "W. : K. lYOBDICK, Sditor. Sntertd at the posloffice at Postville as ttcond-class matter. HABNBSTJTESa AND PZKBEVEB- ADDITIONAL LOCAL. —Tuer are beginning to term it the fiv* coal congros*- Economy U alwej* cotnmendablo but nehuriousnuss for political effect and buncombe is (intest­ able. We ware miieh pleased with Mr. Lockwood'a remarks on Sunday craning relative to earnestness of purpose, labor and perseverance in order to itchlore success in nnvlhios; in (hit world. We henr so niucli in these Inst days about the poor being ground down and financially enslaved, und 10 mueli about lejislatioe that will compel the rich to divide with the poor, no matter whether tho lRtter are deserving or not. that wo lika to see the elements necessary to success pluernl M the f once in a while. There are certain traits ot character that miiic be either natural or acquired or >?• shall always be poor, no matter what legislation wo have or what opportunities we enjoy. There ate exception* to all rules but we beliore it to be the mlo that wo are the architects of our own fortune*, it *• desire to be wealthy or well-to-do, Ind dosiro it suflloii'ntly to conform to the ncccsiary requirement?, ivc JISV measure up reasonably near to our rational expectations. It is impossible that we should all be rich, and it would tie bad for tho raco if we were; but w* ought ail to be in comfortable circumstances, and thu ruio is that we might bo it wo would always use our best judgment in that direction. To us it looms idle talk that the government or any political party is rcs- ponsibio for povorty iu this country, where labor is so richly rewarded anil whore the necessaries of life are so cheap. This reminds us of a letter to the New York Tribune of recent date, from R. G. Horr, of Michigan, on the sulijeet of tariff. He says that somo years ago he investod a liirge amount of suoney --all the accumulations of hi* life up to that time, in real estate in a certain locality, only making partial payment. Everyone said thu invest•maul was a good one at tbo time, but after he had made the second payment tho beoru collated, the property deprc- ciatsd and ho lost every dollar lie put into it. Ho says ho never charged up his loss to the government, to legislation or to any political party except to the party by tho name of Horr. We believe nearly all our failures are attributable to causes within ourselves, oad that it is impossible to make us goed financier* or business manageis by legislation. All that legislation can do is to put us on an equality with other men botoro tho law, and then we must "work out our own salvation'' as best we may. A few will get rich and a few will remain very poor, whilo the great majority will be in moderately good clreumstances, just according to our predominating traits of character. Since history began this has been the way of tho world, and it always will be. If we want to do better taan we have beon doing all wo have to do i* to work and osrn more and spend lies, and not be everlastingly charging our poverty to tariffs, to a Jack of tho circulating medium, to an extravagant congress or to the man in the moon. Othor men are constantly rising with the same conditions surrounding them that surrouad us. We mvy do the same it w* will. For our part wo know that we oould save uioro money than wo do, and U it nobody's fault but our own that wo do not. tt might be more satisfactory to our egotism to shift the responsibility somewhere else but it would bo dishonest to do so. All that we are expected to do is to improve the talents we have and make tho West showing wo can, whether it it along the line of finance, statesmanship or religion. No two human beings •ro constituted just alike and no two will rise to exactly the same degree of - eminence or suooess. In tho great drama of life if we act well our part, hovr, aver insignilicant it mar be, we may bo sure that "hero Ml the honor lies." THE Des MoineJ Register copies an editorial from the Sioux City Timet, a republican paper, on tho proper action tor tke republican* in the Iowa legislature to take on the prohibition question. It advocates moderation but hopes enough republicans will vote with the democrats to securo repeal. The following extract Is from the closing paragraph: ."The republican party is all right. Unless all signs fail no plank in favor ot prohibition will again (lad place In the party platform. Almost all the republican leaders in the state and •very party paper ot more than local Influence haye shown a disposition to rologate the dispute on tomporanoe method* to (lie rear hereafter." And this attertloa It true. Nothing uow bet tke inconsequential local pre**, and only ouoe in a great while on* ot these, pretends to advooate hanging on to the corpse ot prohibition. Iu every tente that Is a dead Issue, and very . dead at that. Hereafter a man may be • a republics if be wants to and not be a prohibitionist, in Iowa as well a* in Wlsconsiu or Illinois. And It will bo a long lime in the feture before any psr- ly will pin '.11 kopo ot suocess on such an issue. A patty in a state hat no right tu formulate conspicuous lttuet not found in the national party platform. To attempt to do to it simply to ' disrupt ih« party la the state attempting it. "State rights" will not work in politics any better than in government. The party mutt be national or nothing. It team* that the supreme court of tbo United State* bat doolded the *s*o ot «»• D M Moines land settlers against tbem, and these settlers will bajre to be '•rbnett frees their homes whleb they here ocsjupled for twenty-nve years.

The democrats are on til led to these positions this year, and Van ran do the job as "neatly aad completely" as any other man. —There seem* to be a "oombino" on dry wood, and the price is held at CS.tO per cord.

Tkey met in a restaurant and ninncbed and munclied and muuebed, after which they talked and talked and talked, as is the fashion of thoir kiud. Tho thing they wanlod to nettle was who they would vote for for president. The name of Cleveland was mentioned with sorrow and the name uf illsine with apprehension, and the conference- appears to have had no tan gible result. —A MitiisTXji in New York recently visited a number of the best liquor stores in his neighborhood and bought pint samples ot their best gin, whisky port wine, etc. In Ilia analysis of the '•pure Holland gin" ware found neutral spiiits, rotten corn, juniper berries, turpentine and vitriol.
