AVo give in this issue a synopsis] of the bill Introduced into the Iowa seirUe by Mr. Gatch, and while there seems to bo some prospect that it will become n law wo sincerely hope it will not. If we can liavo no better license law than that let us retain the dead prohibitory law. Wo are opposed to tho Gatch bill for throe prominent reasons: 1st, it is not a Iosal option bill at all, but a aotinty option. We would liko to know what business it is lo people residing a dozen of more miles east or north of l'ostvillo whether we have license or prohibition hero. It' we have licenso wo have to incur the luioossnry oxpenso for marshal, etc., while the country districts have none of the oxponsu incident lo si corporation, and hence they are not entitled lo tho benefits of the licenso fee. And this constitutes our sesonil ground for opposing tlio measure As we have before slated on this point, the towns have numberless necessary expenses that the country lim no'., many of which, liko lUlown'ks, crossings and good streets, are almost ]y advantageous to the country people tributary to tho town, as they are to the residents of tho town. In all fairness and justico tho corporation should havo the bulk of tho licenso fo<», if not all of it. Pulling the county license al iJjOQ it will practically cut the small towns from any licenso nimoy at all, as that is tho maximum fee that saloons will pay, and town boards will be elected which will not exact any additional licenso, or at most not more thnn $50 or 9100 for corporation purposes, which will bo equivalent to nothing at all. Our third objection is the sweeping strlagonoy of tho law, which can only result in what tho prohibitionisls charge, tho disregard and non-enforce- mout of the law. Its provisions, if lived up to, will make it practically prohibitory, as no man will or can pursue the business under such ironclad restrictions. Wo favor a stringent law, but it is ovident in this case that the idea is to mako it so stringent ns to amount lo prohibition, which is not the reasonable saope of a license law. If wo wero in tho legislature we should voto against any such moasuro as that. If we could not gat a fair and reasonable corporation local option lair we should lot tho people have prohibition until they worn ready to voto for a license law worth v of '.he name bids fair to keep him busy for a time. Wo should havo supposed he would have treated the matter with silent contempt so long as no dofenso was made at the trial. Our idea is that all such family matters should bo kept out of the newspapers if possible. Publicity only makes a bad matter worse. fr there is anything that seoms to us superlatively ridieultins it is for the republicans in the legislature to hang out for resubmission. If they do not want to support any kind of a licu»se law lot them simply vole against all lieense measures, leaving the prohibition law as it is. They know perfectly well that the amendment will not again be submitted to thn people, and if ".hey oppose license all they have? to do is to vote accordingly, and the people in the next legislative election will delcriuijio what they want done. IT seems a little strange in view of the fact that the republican slate convention is to eoiivenc.)i) the hjlh of this month that nothing has been done towards selecting bounty delegates so far as we know. A mid winter convention for this purpose is impolitic and unnecessary, lull the county cominittou, it senilis lo in, should have met and ehosju the delegate! before now, so that arrangements might be made for them lo attend. Perhaps this has been dono. and the delegates informed, but if so it has not been made public. We think it -VSK rcrr uuwi-.e to call tbe state couveulion so early -three mouths before tho assembling of thu Minneapolis convention -and thu inly excuse must bo thai it was tho intention that this convention should give tho legislature the cue upon which to a«t on thu liquor question. If so it should havo very little weight, as tho rank and file of the party will have no voice in tho selection of I ho delegate*, and very little loproseulatiou on Hie delegation. Thn politicians will compose the l)es Moines convention. Wii have just read tho complete history of the NIIW i'ork senatorial steal at tho election last fall, iu tho New York Tribune of Fob. 17th. ll shows up the blackest election crimes ever nnuarthni' iu any northern state, and if true it. ought to hind every man connected with il in tho penitentiary, not excupting U. S. Senator Hill. If it is false the Tribune should be driven to the wall by actions for libel, both civil and criminal. lint while it seems incrediblo that such things can be true in a state claiming civilization. Mill it would provo that the Trihuue was nisnno to publish such an arraignment if the facts did not warrant it. Kvory- body ought to get the Tribune of that date and read tho history. It is no wonder that respectable democrats demur against thu nomination of Hill for tho presidency. Tho election of such a man to that honorable position would be such a dbgract to tho nation that free government could scarcely stand against il. New York must wash its hands of such crimos. and the party at large as wull, if il hopos to stand tho shadow of % chance before the American people next fall. •w.fl"" 1 ". •'•M'iii»iiiEiM .,.«r, THE GATOH BILL. "THE l'ostvillo REVIEW is oortain if the saloons sro not bgulizud ngsUn in low* this winter— for tho benefit of such 'luxuries 1 ns schools and churches of ooiirso—that, next yoar tho domo- orats will make ssinan swoop of tho state, and elect a successor to Sun. Wilson. Tho howl is nionolououslr familiar, for haven't wo hoard similar pro- dlolioHs by It of defeat for the parly if tho tariff was not removed and the coiiQlry blessed with froo trade?"— \Vnukou Standard. The above Is another spoulmeu argument^) from the' champion falsifier. While we nover advooated "free trade," and the Standard well knows it, w» did say that the MoKioley bill would beat the republican party, nnd who is there that does not know il did boat it at tho next elestiou "out of its bootsP" Wo also laid that prohibition would surely beat the republican party in Iowa. Dare anylody dispute that it has? If it has beaten the ropublioau party in two stttte elections what Is Iko so use iu denying that it will do tho samo thing in tho uaxt purely stato eloctiou, a yoar from uext fall? Wo claim no gift of prophecy, but we do know that "like begets Ilka," ami It is a safo judgment to judge tho future by tho past, where tho same ooudilioiu prevail. With prohibition left on the statute books there is no earthly power that will prevent I«wa from continuing to bo a democratic stato after this year of grace, 18911.

The conditions are as follows: That Ihe permit holder shall not sell or give liquors to a habitual drunkard, to any person in a stale of intoxication, to any minor; that thn place sliall be kept closed from II p. m. until 6 a. m. on all public election dart, on all Sundays; i Ibat the business shall be carried un whcUy in a single room fronting ami opening on a singlo sireet; that no games shall be permitted on the premises; that no adjoining room shall bo supplied with liquors from said place of business; that the place shall bo kept in an orderly and respectable manner; that the puwnil. holder will auuunlly pay oyer the full amount of license in advance; that a copy of this permit shall be plainly posted in tho room where tho business is carried on.

Last Saturday morning a dustruetivo (ire visited Ossian, entailing a loss of $10,000, with itisuranse to the amount of $7,000, mostly in W. S. Webster's companies. Five buildings were burned, including tho two story brick store of T. A. L :i nun, willi its contents, and four other smallc' buildings on the east aide of the street. The origin of ihe lire is unknown, hut it started iu Mr. Lamm's store building. Il was a bad blow to Ossian but might have been much worse. Tlio Appearonco of the Devil.
