Tto Postville Weekly Review. ftttWl&LB, SAT'DAT, APR. 2. •#. it. BUADIOK, Editor. Mnltrtd at the pOtloffict at PotMll* as sveomf-efai* mailer. .OONORBSSIONAL. We giro in this IMIIO somo expressions of tho press of tills (liitrlnl ot, Iha uon^reMlounl «ncee»«lon. Willi regard to candidate* mentioned in tlia worn part of the district IMs only nece *Miry to say that the oandldate will not bn conceded to that end of Ilia district (his year. Tli* iroit on concadad the candidate both four mid two year* *po, and it Is tieedlein tn any that he met with only limited support in tho west at the last olectlon, n groat many if]".) 1 >11 can* In If(HIon. including rami of tli* party paper*, hcing m least lukewarm. While It would have duubtle** been impossible for any rppiiblican to liaTe stenimrd thn storm In thn district that year, tllll a imieli hotter showing: should harp been madis in the sepllon that had the candidate, and the press should hare ivt l*a «t been united and enthusiastic in the four western eotiti- ties. Now the candidal* will be ohiini- «d by one of tho eastern counties, provided tliit seetion has a "drawing card." WM 'c we believe it possiblu to elect any good republican this year, who i« well known all over the district, and is • good canvasser, still we must recognize tho fact thai the district is slightly democratic, ami that Mr. Puller is tho best school district campaigner in the stale. On these accounts wo have I Son Jersey thought it best to take no chances on ] * l * t '' i" <l' c • n L fullv ile new and nut very well known men. Hence ionic mouths ago we brought out the name of Ei-liov. I,:irra'>re, as being a nomination that would settle the question of succession from the start, llo is stronger with the farmer* and tho alliances than any other man in tho district. Unidv* his jjruat acquaintance and popularity, not only in tho district and slate, but his almost national reputation would ho almost an incalculabln advantago to the district through the rank he would at once take in congress. Wo havo hoard no word as to whether or not lio would accept, but wo havo littlo doubt but ho would if the nomination would go to him with n good degree of unanimity, for lie has always bueu in the hands of his party whnn it has needed his sorrier* in a hard fight. Wo want to say one word on the subject brought out by tho Lansing papers, Tiz: the candidacy of J, H. Trewin, of Laming. Whilo we concede all the ability claimed for liitu, and the fact that he would make an ablu representative if elected, wo are unable to see his availability nt lliis time. Fie Is a new comer in tho district au,l is practically unacquainted except at the extreme! east end. If Allamakee, is to prcscut a candidate at all, (which .it present does not seem expedient) it has a man equally able in all r ^iu 'cts, who ha* been a wheel horse in Co party for year* and is Known to all sections of tho district, both politically and as a military man in the 1. N. G. Wo allude, of course to Col. A. G. Stewart, of Waukon. Ho has been c'istiict delegato to a national convention, ho has traveled over the district as a pavty organizer, and •peakcr, lie has attended alt tho prominent convoutions of the party, both state and district, and if Mr. Uarrabee'* name is not mentioned we know of no man mora entitled to the position or more available than Col. Slow art. Aua still wo do not know thai he would allow the mo of his name, or that ho has any aspiration* in that direction. TTo have no authority whatevor to mention his name, and should not have dono it now had net another name from this county been mentioned. If Allamakeo is to preteot a candidate wo certainly feel that by long residenco in tho county, arduous party labor for year*, vnueh of the time as chairman of the county committee, ocupled with good ability a* a speaker and organizer. Col. Slewart is preeminently the man that the county should unite ou. SILVER. Contrary to nil expectation* the Miami silver bill wa» practically killed In .tho house, where it. originated, notwithstanding it was supposed It would bn carried in Hint, body by an overwhelming majority, there lining a few republican members favoring it and the major portion of the hundred and fifty democratic majority. It wns expected that it would carry in tho home by Just utmut, the above majority, tlm democrat* that opposed and the republicans that favored, supposably being about equal in numbers. It »n* oonlldcntly pjpeoted that It would nl»o pass the senate by a small majority, tho republican mountain senators farorlug it. Hill last week on a vole to lay on I ho table it required the vole of Speaker Crisp inornate a tie and thus save it from being tabled. Now what has wrought this wondrous change of aeatiment on tho part of democrat* In congress? Can yon liol determine it at 11 glance? It is not because democrat* love free coinage less than Ihey did a wock ago surely. Men don't change (heir political or economic views so rapidly a* that. The explanation is that congress heard from New York and the east. The New York World circulated a petition which wa* signed by more than t>,000 democrat* mid sunt it tu the democratic house prefaced by tho following significant words: "To the democrats of the house of representatives: The uiid«r»igned democrats ask you to postpone '.be consideration of any silver bill until the next session of congress. ll is our firm conviction that the eon- sideration of a fme coiuagp bill will imperil democratic success in the coming presidential election. 'T HE Gntoh bill was defeated by a ; aflor she was eighty year* of age. lie strict party vote In the. house on '1 UM day. Every riipublieau voted against . ll, every democrat, lor it. Thin ends the license racket for the present, mid gives tin.ilhcr two yoat's lease of life to the present prohibitory law. It Is, we think, safe to say Mint unless I litre I* a bet'er enforwoment of thn law during this lime, the law is certain In bn wiped out of existeneii."—llookford Register. True proachlng, Hro. Trigg; but who will wipn it out of existeuoef In another Itom you »ay who will do it: "If '.he prohibitory law is repealed, let the democr its elect enough men to do It." You are right, again, but what does this imply? A democratic legislature and a democratic IJ. S. senator, anil domooraoy fitl.y established In ovory position in (he Mate, and nil for what? For tho empty gralitlcatior. of having a dead law ou tho statute hook two years longer. There may be good senso in this kind of work, but a great many republicans fail to sec it. If tho Catch bill annihilated prohibition all over the stalo we could ace somo sens* i* the opposition to it, from a prohibition standpoint, but it is a belter prohibition law for most of th* atalo than we have now, and wo'ild insure prohibition in every county where the present law has any pretense of enforcement. The Lest result of Its passage would have beou the salvation of the republican parly in the state CONGRESSIONAL TIMDBK. "Tho republicans of the fourth con grcisiotial disiric - . are beginning to groom i ai'didalea for congressional honors. Representative men •! the parly in every locality are of the opln ton thai a republican can be elected to succeed W. ll. Hutler. Two vears ago, on account of the neutral policy adopted b,- Congressman Sweney in lii» distribution ot patronage, there arose in the district a gteat It will not gain to the partv a single j (lf 0 ,, 110 , ition , .,„,, although a silver .Mate. It raav l.-»e New \ork. , ,.,„„,„!„„,;!„', „.« Recorded him by Connecticut and every union that is uow hope- bat abla. In 1SS0 the democratic party won a victory almost unparrllrled in our political history. Your great majority is the fruit of that victory. We ask yon, as democrats, to permit the people to complete their triumph." This, then, is the cause of the stampede from free silver in tho house. "Not a doubtful state" 10 be carried for tho democrat* if the party stood by it* principle* in congress'. What n position for a great, party to ha placed in! "Postpone the consideration pf any silver bill until tho next session of congress." Then, if you can hoodwink the people and secure the election under the pretense of being for free silver in tho west and .-'gainst it in the east, you may go on ami pass your Bland bill as soon as you please! And our own present member of congress, Mr Hutler. said in his speeches and in his paper boforc the last election that free silver was as vital an issue to democrats as tariff reform, and there must bo no shrinking on either issue. We will do him the credit to say that his vote was recorded in favor of th* bill, but thre* democratic eoegressmen from Iowa, including Judge Hayes, voted against it. to their credit. The bill may be taken up agsin and ptissed but it is not likely. Kepubli- oaiu hoped it might pass the house, and thu senate too, for that matter, knowing that it would bo vetoed by thn prosidout, and thus go into the campaign as a most prominent issue. But while this is now not liable to be douo the people know, or will find out, which party is in favor of honest money ,-.ud which favors a 69 cent dollar. The ndmonition of the World was heeded by the house, but it was too late to save the split sura to bo mada in the east, which lakes no stock in depreciated money or in a party that champions it. The silver dollar will bo the last stvaw that will broak tho back of tho democratic camel. reuomtnntioii was acclamation it was discernible before the close of the campaign that lie was not proving as acoeptable a caudidale as the parly had hoped and on election day he was defeated bv a vote of 16,023 to 17.97'-. Hutler will have little or no opposition in securing :i renoniination, and republicans are satisfied that he is the man Ihey will have to defeat tliis fall. His success two years ago was mainly duo to his ability to work and his powoi as a pilblio speaker. Tho republicans agree that the man who is lo contest with him this fall must posse*.! these qua ideations. Evtiov. '.arrabee is the most frequently mentioned as the mini who combines all the ne»es»ary qualities lo make a successful canvass, but l.e does not. want to ai;ain enter politics, and unless the convention make positivo demands upon him ho could not be j induced to make the race. Ex-Representative Illy the, of Curro Got do, is doubtless as brilliant a speaker and as hard a worker as there is in the district anil his name is being frequently mentioned as the one above all others who could make it intensely interesting for Mr. Hutler. John McHngh, of Crosco. still has many admirers, but in conversation with vour oorrcspondetir he expressed himself as being fully satis- lied with his lucrative position as state bank examiner. Tom Updegrafl, of McGregor; Senator Hailey, of Deeorah, snd P W. Purr, of Charles City, are Uso mentioned. The republicans of the district will pull together this fall, and will doubtless be represented in the fifty-third congress by a man of their faith. The district lias never but once before been represented by a democrat, and that w»s when Calamity Woller slipped in surprising himself as well as his party." -Mason City correspondent to the Minneapolis Tribune. sat down and cotupostd the«e verses before he slept and sunt them tn her at Dale Delight, on Henderson Prairie, lown, by the next mail.

Boies' labor commissioner, whom he has just re-appointed, J, R. Sovemigu, has relieved himself of another table of statistics as visionary and misleading as the one he issued n whilo age, which made it appoar that the farmer lost 67 cants per aero in raising corn. This table purports to show the cost of supporting a family consisting of a man and wife and three children per year. A good many of the figures seem reasonable, ou their face but tho aggregate foots up $549.34, n sura greater than the average laboring man earns or ovor did or evor will earn; for ll is greater than any ordinary business will warrant. It is over $ii per month the year round, or about $80 per month whoro the work of the year is crowded iato th* season of sev- oa months as in tho ease of farm labor and most out of doors work. Like, the eoru proposition it' is simply ridiculous and absurd. Thousands of men hnva not only supported a largoc family than that ou about half that iiicom*, but hayo at tho same time laid Ihe foundation for a oompotonco or a fortune Such figures and such reasoning only tend to cause dissatisfaction and unrest aud add to the already too Urge an els- uiaut of soolallam and nnvehy. Families can live aud live woll on lass than a dollar a day—$865 per year. They cautiot expect to liro like the bankers and merchants, but they can live comfortably, like the editors, for instance. We are tired and sick of these wails of discontent at the oommou lot of mankind. If wo could lire as these malcontents would wish that wa might, uobody would want to oxchauge this world for an eutranca into tho celestial city. Let us accept the situation as wo find It, doing the bast wa can and living the bast we can with our environment, not envying tho rich, who have more troubles and sleepless nights than we dream of, but living liopoful, happy lives and dying with the respaoi ot our follow men.

Lately John Sponoor, of 'Willliniiutio, exhibited seven war scones, the work of his knife, which comprise some four hundred figures. One scene Is called tho foraging soeno. It represents ft plantation in the South, and tho Union troops raiding It In quost of food. In oue comor Is a log cabin, Its owner standing In the doorway, torror-strlckon, gazing helplessly and anxiously at tho looting operations going on about him. He Is supposed to bo tho owner of a lot ot razor-back Southorn hogs, which have, been lot loose, and a squad of blue­ jackets aro In triumphant pursuit of them all about the yard. At the cabin door sits a boy In blue, who appears to be making love to a dark-hued damsel, who Is partly listening to his story and grinning altogether more interestedly nt tho squealing pig. Mr. Sponoer says that the scono portrays an actual affair that ho wltnossod In the Bouth, and that votcrans will roo- ognlzc its vorlty nt onoo. The second block scene portrays a battle hclwoon Union and Confederate forces, and two hundred wooden manikins appear to bo fighting. Mr. Speneor spent two years outtlng this panorama Into shape. The whole thlug Is skillfully done, and iu a life-like mnnnor, yet ovory bit of work on It was don » with a Connecticut Jack- kntfo.

Our storo is full of seaionablu goods, and we are full of energy and honest intentions.

Wo aro expending our best *fl'orts lo conduct a suu- ~ Our young friends, Stroebel and llodary, seem lo be in hard lines, few woeks ago their headquarter* were l-ombarded aud last Friday night they were burgled by burglars. The latter must have supposed that Strovbel had a gold mtuu somewhere about his store for no woll regulated burglar would hope to find more than a niekal in a newspaper olTlce. That offlee ii to now thoy could not even reasonably expect to .find "pi" there. It was not a "fat take" by any means fur the burglars, and the only rogret is that Stroabel'i bullet did not hit a more shining mark than the door easing. --Out in Floyd counly they ara having a warm time with tho lax evader*, the grand jury having a large number of oases beforo them for indiolmaut for false oaths affixed to their aue»»nie!its in thu matter of moneys and credit*. If there i* any way to reach this terrible evil it should bo reached and reached hard. It is too bad that those who have their all in visible property, whether it bo much or Utile, should have to pay practically ull the tax**, while thu rich who have thoir wealth largely in moneys anu credits, pay par- hapa on one tenth of their possessions. Even tho latter percentage i* doubtless too high, Something roust soon be done to discover this oonoealad properly >nd tax It, or the poorer »nd middle via.****, will lis sti'amUtW To *.enrn a ajaiitfuage. Somo students begin u language for the more love of knowing foreign tongues; others acquire them olthor for professional purposes or with the aim of gaining access to forolgu literatures. But whatever be the motlvo, tho Boston Horuld suggests that it is woll to set out with somo knowlodge of tho science of language—somo insight into the rotations of languages to one au- othor—somo grasp of tho theories of modern scholars about the origin and dovolopmont of speeuh. To learn lnnguago without knowing nuythlng of tho soience ot language is like acquiring the art of putting up eleotrla fixtures without any knowledge ot the principles of eleotrioal soi­ ence. - To approach It on the other hand, from tho standpoint of universal principles Is to make the study of it easier and progress in any particular tongue rouoh more rapid. By knpwing, for example, the laws of consonantal Interchange wo may often discover the meanings of words without bolng obliged to refer for them to the dictionary. In this way every new languuge learned mokes more easy tho ncjulromont of other tongues of the samo or of all allied slocks. Cnraed Words of tho Vexltleee. The Yoxldoos, a pooullar Turkish sect, ore, perhaps, the only people in tho world which consider certain letters, words aud phrases as being cursed, and the person who pronounces them u worthy subject for immediate destruction. They attach no value to human life, and to those ordinary dangers are added those arising from the embarrassing etiquette of conversational intercourse with them; for, if anyone inadvertently spoaks the word •'devil." "Satan," or anything with the same meaning, ho commits a mortal offense, and to cut off bis head is a God-pleasing aot a sacred duty of the Yeildea, tho 'fulfillment ot which will insure htm a place in Paradise, In a like manner several letters are wholly banished from their language, ohlefly tboso whioh contain the sound of •whun." Tho Arabian word nallet, "Thou art damned," is also expunged, because it is believed by th* Yealdoes to have been the word uttered by Qod when the fallen angels were thrown Jatohell Those and Blmllor words and phrases are set aside and combinations whioh do not. belong "to any language used Itiitaad,—St. WVtls PYMio.
