Although w* woro not in attendance Upon lit* «l»to contention last week we v*ry much regret that wo w*ro not there, for It (earns to hare baen tha first and only republican itata aonvon- tion Iowa hai had for ten j*ars. Iv*ry county in the stat* was represented by good delegations, must of them by a full representation. From reports giran by the State Kegiiter and other papers it seams to hare bean the most enthusiastic and harmonious convention held in tha state in years— 1 much Ilka the old style oourentions. in j Grant's and Garfield's lime, when no <jueitioDJ were asked how a delegate atood on religious er moral questions, tho only question being whether ha was ea rapport with the partv on tha vital questions o( national policv. The prohibition malcontents were not "in it." or if they wera tkeyj wore not in stifti- cient number* to raise a discordant tiote. The' commute* on nMviutions was composed larj,elv •( anli -prohibitionists, with Sam Clark, of the G»:o City, as chairman and author of the platform adopted. Stat* and local questions wer* very prop*rlr ignored in the platform, so allusion whatever being made to tha distracting question in onr state politics. Tha platform is brief and to the point, covering everything that is in issue in national politics, st.d omitting all padding and nlmup speech oratory. Wo give it iu full as follows: "RISOLVKD, By tho republicans of Iowa in slate convsntion assembled, that wo enter upon tha presidential ansnpnign of 1892 with full confiduueo that the party in its national convention will make a declaration of principles and nominate a ticket in harmony with tho republican party, and that shall be trim to the present spirit, purpose s and convictions of the party, and we hereby declaro that therti is no test of fealty to the natioual republican party other than nn ndheronce to its fuuda- inuntal principles as announced in its national platform. KEIOI.VCI>, That we cordially andorso tho administrate* of President Harrison. It has been a worthy successor to the series of republican administrations bogan by Lincoln and which have ninde the last half cenlnry of the republic /res, united and prosperous to a degree unrivalled among tho nations. I'rusi- dent Harrison has kept every pledge made by his party, has maintained sound policy at homo and the national honor abroad. Ho has surrounded himself by a cabinet which has in orery department deserved well of the party and tho country and added new stron^th and laurels to American statesmanship. RESOLVED, That we appeal to republicans In all parts of tho state to unite disregarding all local differences and on tho platform of national republicanism, the maintenance 6f protection, the full establishment of reciprocity as a policy of the government which is one of tho great achievements of republican statesmanship, tho elevation nnd prosperity ot labor, the niaintenonoe of a sound currency, every doIlM- of which shall be the equal of every oilier dollar and of securing to all Anutriean citizens, white or black, their equal rights, the republicans shall re-esl ablish its eld political rank and make the state triumphantly rapublioan in No»*iub*r." In speaking of the report of tho committee oa resolutions the Register says: "Hoa. 8. If. Clark, the chairman, was introduced with the resolutions in hi* hand. He read them in a clear, ringing voice. The convention cheered itself hoarse ovor them. The declaration, 'there is no test of fealty to the national republican party other than an adherence to the fundamental principles announoed in tho national platform.' made the enthusiasm How over. The endorsement of President Harrison was also warmly received. Mr. Clark mad* a brief but admirable speech tailing the reasons of the committee making the utteranco it had, and statod they considered outside their province to instruct for president." While thor* were uo instructions for president the Harrison feeling and preference was largely in tha majority, aud In this tha Stale Rcgistor was sat down upon, and wits doubtless th* voa ion why, on tho ballot for dolegates at large J. S. Clarkson ran 200 behind the other successful candidates. Th* following are the delegate* at larg*, and the alternates: Delegate* at largo -J. S. Clarkson, John II. Gear, E. E. Maok and D. C. Chase.1 Alternate* -Geo, K. Robert". Wm Eaton, Bruce T. Seaman and A. B Cummin*. Fourth dUtriot d*logat*» R. II. Fair burn, of Chiokasnw, aud G. E. Marsh of Mitchell. Alternate*-Dr. J. C Crawford, of Allamakee, and A. C Wh**ler, of Worth. The absolute triumph of the nntl prohibition clement in tho convention I* prov*n from tho faet that A. B. Cum • uains, the anti-prohibition temporary chairman, although ho twice declined th* honor, was enthusiastically elected ' an alternate dolegato at large. It musk b* remembered that this same Cum' win* supported Gov, B*lcs last year •nd th* democratic tiokel for th* legls lature, solely on the prohibition issue But whoever reads hut spoeoh to the convention a* temporary ohairinan must ooncedo, with the Register, that he is a sound republican a* wall a* one of th* very ablest man in the date. Even th* Register declares that his speech was one of the very best ever delivered auderllke olrouuastanoes in • Hlw *t»'e, *nd conventions have bean •addressed by such men a* Allison, tWtliou, Kasson, Weaver and a bo*t of 'otbtr gr*ut'oelebritles.

P. Rowell & Co. called "Printer's Ink," as second class matter, thus eansing that firm to pay a largo amount of post- ago in excess of the newspaper rate of one cent a pound. On the very "face of the relume" it has no right to circulate as a newspaper nnd at newspaper postage. It is simply an advertising trado journal, th* same as th* type founders, the wholcsnlo stationers and many other wholesale houses get out to advertise their wares. There are many good things in it, the same that there are good things in nil the publications named, but it is not expected that anybody will take and pay for it for the reading matter il contains, and we don't believe that auybody does. It claims to charge #1.00 a year, but we have received it every week \nd have never raoeived any bill or collection, and we don't believe anybody else hs*. It is ouiy ot interest to newspapers and j newspaper advertisers, and through them to Geo. P. Rowell A Co. It is not a publication entitled to pass through , the mails at newspaper postage, and w* are surprised that asTbody should think il is. It trad* journals ot that class are newspaper* then everything that is printed, including Webster's dictionary, is a newspaper. If the brethreu can't tiud any other cause of complaint against the present administration than this they would do well to hold their peace. Newspapor postage has been put at a price far below its cost so that tho prico of theso publications may be put so low that tha millions of humus in tho land, however poor their eccupanls may bo, oan afford to havo and read the daily and weekly news of the world. As this class of postage is less than its cost, in the interest ot the whole people, it is an outrage to fore* into the mails tons of tills advertising matter at newspaper ratos. Rather than have this done we would favor doubling all newspaper postage, thus compelling all publishers to pay the cost of carrying their publications, as they did up to a short time ago, when this class of postage was The next reforrod to the charge that i was nominated would be dletatad by protection is solely in tho Interest of! *»" Mcoptable to that oorrupt organl« manufacturers, watch he u'.lerly disclaimed: "I have haard it said a* an unanswerable reply to this course of reasoning, that liumensu fortuue* have in a f«w years been accumulated by manufacturers of protected rommodttio*.

"There can be perfect tonality estab- lisued and maintained among slaves, but not among freemen." This Is a final disposition of socialism in a free country, and no argument is necessary. Kike the McKinley bill it is its own evidence. And its counterpart: "Any argument upon this subject that falls *o take notice ot the difference in the grey matter commonly called 'brain' omits the greatest fao'.or in the problem of human secioty." It is braia that makes a Gladstone, an Andrew Carnegie, a Blaine and a Gould. And it is not only brain development but it is a state of society that fosters and encourages that development by competition with tho world. Would any such development have been possible under socialistic influence*? Socialism will do for s'.ayes, not for freemen. satlon. ' After discussing briefly" hut cogent by the silver question, ha passed to the elections of the south and pleaded for equal rights. During the course ot the speeoh Mr. Cummin* spoke with great hopefulness a* to tho outcome of the earepalgn and said whan 'night tell those who had unfurled tt.n banner of republicanism would be laden with a matclilees victory, and Iowa once more crown tho column of republicanism.' Tha apoaali lasted exactly one hour Ik II* delivery. Thu delegate* were dolighted and'It wa* freely pronounced isnrrcn llceutl*.

OTJHKTNS' GREAT SPEECH. In additioa to giving Mr. Cummins' speech in full the State Register gives the following synopsis of il. which we make room for. It will be remem bered that the temperance alliance, which recently met iu DosMoines, condemned the state committee for plae reduced from two cents to "one cent per I'im ° u l »» list as temporary cbair- peund. man, and through their influenco ho and the committee were insulted by tho GATOH BILL DEFEATED.

MAT feels very badly because we said the Standard was Hie echo of the New York Voice. We supposed that even he could understand what wo maaut by that remark. Wo did not of course mean that the Staudard openly supported the third parly, as Ike Voice does, hut that it at heart Is iu sympathy with nothing not labeled prohibition. The careful roader could not but liete thai during all these years the Standard would rather see the ropubli can party of this stale fall Into the minority with prohibition than to see it successful without it. In this respect it is just ,iko the Voice. THE late republican convention must have been a lonesome place for Bro. May, of Ike Standard. In all that mighty concourse of icpubllcans he did not hoar a word in any public speech about "A school bouse on every hill top and no saloon in the valley." Neither did any speaker assert that "tha prohibitory law is enforced in ainaty counties as rigidly as any other statute" In other words it was a republican and not a prohibition convention. If he and Frank Wright could have had their way these axioms would have beon incorporated in tha first resolution, and the foundation would thus have been laid for another democratic victory in this state. Tor once republicanism was crowded to the fore and distracting local issues were relegated to the rear. May the good example be followed by future conventions. 100.000 copies daily, nnd It's paid clr oulatlon, too, nnd wo roach tho families, sir.

There was not a shvtow of dissont, the enthusiasm and the significance of his position had beon caught by all, and nobly their sentiments responded. One delegate jumped up and cried, 'This is the way we welcome those fellows back ' Thoro is ouiy one reason why the bill |Tb«n tho convention broke loose again and it was wilder than before. In the should have been passed, and that is it would havo beon nn entering wedge on prohibition which tho following legislature could modify. It would also have had tho effect to stay the tide of liberal republicans toward the democratic camp and would havo insured republican ascendancy in tho stale hereafter. Now there is nothing surer than that tho state will go democratic oa stato issues for at least two year* more, and th* chances are much greater that it will bo permanently demo, cratie, unless the noxt state convention, which will probably meet In Juns or July, shall declaro unequivocally for local option and high license. It is not meantime the Polk county delegation sal in their seats, some of their members looking dazed and not eeoming to realize what had hit tbem. A majority of tho delegation, however, joined in the applause. And the minority, well wera thoy taught the lesson that the petty jealousies of the law office have no place or sanction in a roptibliean convention. The car moves along just tho same, nnd if they arc la the way the wheel mark* will appear on their carcasses. When at last Mr. Cummins was allowed to speak, he paid his acknowledgements to the committee and to the convention. He was almost overcome with emotion as ho stated that what shadow of doubts he had ever bad, had faded away like the mist* before the rising sun. 'Here I p.edge myself to likoly that this will be done became devote what little talent I possess to^the this is a presidential your and there i* advanctmont of the republican party nothing bearing on thi* qiio»iion bofor* » n 'l principles.'

In 1091, on September 2 'J (not '-'1. us j/lvon in sonio translations of Humboldt's "Cosmos"), tho sun turned suddenly black and remained no for throe hours. For days nftor tho blucknoss bud disappeared tho sun gave out a peculiar greonlsh light which occasioned great alarm. Schnurror noxt mentions a dark day In Juno, 1191, but astronomers attribute It to the total oollpso which was visible In tho grontor part of Europe in Juno 21 of tho your mentioned. Several dark days are recorded ns having ocourrod In February, 1106, tho dnrkoit being the 4th. 6th ana 12th. On tho 5th a bright star was soon shining "only n foot and a half from the blaokonod remains of tho sun." •On tho Inst day of February, 1206," Bays Cor lev/.a, a Spanish writer, "the sun appeared to suddenly go out, causing a darkness all ovor the country for about six hours." The superstitious writers of the time attributed the groat darkness of 1241 to God's displeasure over tho results of the battle of holgnltz, the sun beln^ so obsoured as to make It necessary to kcop lamps burning until after the ninth hour.
