The Postvillc Weekly Review. FOSTVILLB, BAT'DAT, APR. 30. •W. N. BtfRDICK, Editor. Mnttred at the poitofflc* at Pottville at Ueond-ela$$ malttr. T HE Intor Ocean B »yn Hint a titling inscription on tlio torabstono of tho democracy of Ithodo Inland would bp, "Died in the wool." Ws don't hear anything more about iioicV presidential boom. Nobody ever hoped for anything more than second plaoo. and this is vory doubtful. '•V ERMONT has it law prohibiting •chool teachers from using tobacco. Iowa achoolma'ains naither chow nor sruoko, 10 our lawmakers don't bare to lay the restriction down to tlitra." Kural Lifo. How nbo'.it gum, brother? I. IU-1 IM--J- .JLJSB T AMA J IM W ILSOX , the Iowa authority on farming, eondenscn a wholo vol- timo on th« proposition that farming doh't pay, into the following britf statement: '•If we say farming does not pay, wo mean wo are failures -not the farms. We say dairying does not pay; wo mean we are not acquainted villi dairy- tag. We say cattlo do not pay, which borne intorpreted, means we know little about llieui." "DKS MOIMF.S finds no dilliculty in finnishing its proportion of crime. In one wooic it has had two murders, one infanticide, one suicide and one conviction of manslaughter, to say nothing of Hiich minor incidents as finding a man in tlio river who had dropped oft" a bridge." -Dos Moines Register. How can such tilings bo, Bro. Clarkson? We arc told from day to day that it is the open saloon that causes all tlio crime, and surely Des Moines must bo a prohibition city. There is some break in the figuring somowhoro. "T HE coyote crop in California is turning out groatur than anticipated. The present scalp law in that nlato has been in operation but about nine months and in that timo 20,?'.)9 scalps liaro been taken which will tako $101,•195 from tlio state treasury. California belioves it is a good thing to get rid of tlio wolves at $b per head."—Ex. In reading such items as the abovo (and the Iowa legislnturo has just passed a $5 Wolf bounty law) wo can but think of the inconsistency of the argument against protection. Here is a Ktnto taxing its people $100,000 a year for tlio protection of one industry in which ninety out of overy hundred of its tax payers had no direct interest in. A county build* a bridge at public expense when not one tax payer in a hundred will ever have occasion to cross it. Everything in this world is "protection." TUK Courier Journal very aptly ridicules the idea that because of the alliance movement in some of the sonth- arn states somo republican newspapers aro prophesying that two or throe of these states may be lost to the democrats next fall. There is just as much expectation of that forlorn hops being lealized at that the milleuium wilt dawn next November, much to the disgrace of the southern denm-mls. Supposing that for twenty your.- every northern stato had gono republican at every olection. What would tlio people think of it, especially if during tlio s*mo time the south had dominated tlio gororumont nearly all the time, and under it* administration tlio country had grown and prospered as no other country had ever prospered siueo tlio morning stars first sang together? They would rightly think Unit something was radically wrong with tho northern voter*. The only sensible way Is to have the south divided on politics just ns the norlh is and tlio time will eomo when It will be, but it won't bo.this year. I N speaking of congressional candidates and possibilities in this district this year it is uo lime to present "faver- ite sons" or personal friends whom wo may foal are entitled to recognition. Tho first thing and tha main one, is to present the very slrougest man wo have in the party in the district. We must do this at tail juncture or it will be idle to hope to reiloom the district. We have all the time bulieved that Ex-Gor. Lnrrnbve was the oao man who could do this with absolute certainty, and heuoo we have favored his nomination. But thoro is no evidence as yot that ho would accept, and some who are in u bettor position thiin we are to know, claim that he will not. Next to him we believe that Hon. S. B. Zeiglur would be us available a candidate a* wo could present. He has beon a resident of the district for more than a quarter of a oentury, and his extonsivo law practice in the earlier years of his residence throughout the judicial district has given him a wida aoqusiiutanoe, to say nothing of his later labors on the lecture platform on Egypt and tho Nile. He is a pleasing and entertaining ipenker, a ready debater and » man whose fund of information i* fiurpassed by few if any men in the state. While ho is thoroughly America ii in liis views and would do a* much for his adopted country as any native born son, he is a German, and in full sympathy with the German-Amerioan citizens. That ho would draw largely from this nationally, wliioh of late has been voting almost solidly with the democracy on the prohibition issue, goos wHhotit saying. A German naturally believe* in protection and honest money. Ills fatherland believes in these, nnd' iheee are the main distinguishing feature* between the two par- tie* to-day. A* prohibition will have no ' bearing in the elemion the coming full we believe that a large number of our German fallow, oltUjan* would rally to tho support of Mr. Kalglor, »nd It *Q Jiia would tie eaiUy and »uroly elootad, >') . Mil If elected lit would rank* it* able Wfflmwb&*&4 *\m\j Wrflw oat i! TIN aUKSTIOW. Will the limb ever come when our deraoorallc friends will admit that tin ean bo and Is manufactured in this country? Up to dato we have neither heard one of them admit it nor seen the admission in any domoeratic paper. Wo have not consulted our hardware men as to whether they have yet received any American tin, but wo see trum all tho principal towns that they are receiving largb quantities of it, with a guarantee that it is better than any importod tin, and cheaper than It was before the pissage of the McKinley bill. At Mason City they hud a large consignment of it, and the Keokuk Gat", City hns the following: "A Kookitk tinner tells us that lie is using Amoriean tie, And the Qnin- cy Whig ha* an interesting article about the arrival there of quite a large shipment of tin made in tho United Stale*. It says: 'The consignment of tin plate which the U. J. Cotlroll Hardware Company urderud ten days ago from the Colam- bia Tin Plate ;Company, of Piqua, O., arrived yoslerday, and was piled up on the sidewalk in front of their store on the east sido of the square There were 1,000 pounds ef it, a goodly pile, enough of it to effectually refuto the stories the democrat* used to tell us about what an outrage the tin plate duty was, and how American workmen didn't know enough to make tin plate anyhow. Shortly af '.er tho pile of protection arguments was dumped on the sidewalk th*y were uocorated wilh this legend: AMERICAN TIN P1.ATK. ; Two or three of the boxes had buon opened, ami the contents glanced and glistened in the sun, dazzling the eyes of the passerby. The effect was peculiar on democrats. Some of them caught sight of I lie legend, mddonly became blinded by the bright reflection and were iiiiiuoiliately interested in something the other side of the street. Others eyed the pile, and then walked around it in about the manner of a skittish horse going past a lluttcring newspaper in the road. Still others wore corralled by their republican frionds, and being assured that the stuff would not Kurt them, however fatal it might be to their free trade theories, wore induced to oxaniine it. Snid one of thorn, t.n old mossbatk who nev- or voted anything but a democratic freo trade ticket: 'I'm tired of this thing of ererlaslingly getting it in iho nock. Whoro the mischief is tho use of trying to talk freo trade when you fellows bring up such knock-down protection arguments as this and smash a tariff reformer's theories all to smithereens. I'm weary of politics, especially free trade politic*. I'll take to the woods and learn To map anil to sow, To plow anil lo mow, And be u former's boy. Then I won't luivo such things as this.' A number of tiuner*. including Messrs. Fischer, Grant, Sohallor and others, examined the tin plat* and pronounced it equal to any thoy had ever seen. They propose to use it, and tho chances are therefore that several Quiney buildings will soon have roofs of Aniarican tin plat*. The consignment is accompanied by the manufacturers' guarantee that it is superior lo the host English grade, and it is sold at 50 cents a box cheaper than the imported article." As the democrats have nevor yot discovered that Iho tnrifl is not a tax, '•usually to tho full amount of the tarili imposed on the article," wo do not expect they will admit that a sheet of tin is made in this country before tlio opeuing of tho twentieth century, long before which timo there will not be an ouuco of tin imported. In fact thore is inoro than a probability i'int iniido of tvo years all the tin required in tho United States will be made hero, and at a cheaper price than over before known. After this aam- paign tho tin plat* liar's occupation will be gone. "You can fool all the people somo of tho timo and somo of the people all tho lime, but you can't fool all the people all tho time." Hence, not oBly the next president will bo a republican but the next house of representatives will be very likely to be of the sumo political faith. The transformation would be less surprising than of two year* n£,o, and muoh more sensible AS well. know that the democrats will have no trouble to make any arrangement with him which may bo necessary. An apparently well" founded report from tlio insider* who pull the' string* for both the democratic nnd peoples' party 1* to tho effect thai It is now proposed to have a full people*' party ticket, and a full democratic ticket for electors put out iu each of tho states above namad. and that each party shall proceed to make a noisy vigorous campaign and eacli one abuse the other roundly, in Iho hope that such a contest will teud to decoivo tho republican* by lulling them into a false seourily, and they hope will result in many republicans voting with the people*' party untldV tho mislakon belief that it i* honestly fighting democracy; then on the eve of election il is proposed to pass the word quietly for all democrats to vole the peoples' ticket, and thus defeat the republicans through n union of their forces." to argue against I N a little speech cn taking the chair of the Folk county republican convention Hon. Lafo Young gave the following brief but comprehensive resume of the republican party: "The republican party is never at peace witli itself for Iho reason that il is a party of principles and stands for something; and is n*v«r at pcaue with thoso who disagree with its principles. It has a better right than any other party to meet and resolve, for had it never existed, no othtr party, and oven Ihe government would not now exist. Its most vigorous enemies are thoso whom it has made in tho discharge of the highest public duty. It is not so great a party as it might be. but it is tho best there is. It is not so great as it will ho whun it assures ovory man bis vote. It lias boon oalltd the God and morality parly, and while it is not that it is tho only one that has tendencies in thai dircclion. In this state every opponent that it has is a certiticato of character, and its most vigorous cue raies are those who have violated the statutes. As to corporations it has drawn tlio lino between greed and justice, and the corporations have returned the compliment by drawing the linn against tho party. The republican par ty has been offered as a bleeding sacrifice to every good cause. The demo cratic party has not added .t star to tho Hug, a ship to the sea, nor a dollar 'o tho American commerce in fitly years, The republican party does not go into ancient history to lind a basis for its appeal, nor its schedule of things done. The Harrison administration and tho fifty-first congress gave Oklahoma to the settler; admitted live new slates; killed tho Louisiana state lottery increased the currency by making all American silver into moneys enlarging American trade by reciprocity; built up Amoriean manufactures by the McKinley tariff; quieted Chili by vigor OUB diplomacy; changed tho rules in tho American congress to common sense; has given the country peace; has made tho Hag respected; and is now ready to deal wilh 1>. H. Hill and Tammany, or Grover Cleveland and tho mugwumps. All the recent acts havo boon against tlio voice and vote of the democratic party, and have been endorsed by everybody else, from Ihe humblest citizen to the unanimous opinion of tho supremo court of the Unitod States. In pursuance of precedent all tliana latter achibvemonts will in time, bo endorsed, claimed and fathered by the democratic parly." dogma, imported from Platonic philo's- ce'ssftii operation. ophy, and having no solid exegetical basis.' The Epistle of Timothy is quoted as speaking of Jcsu* a* the one 'who only hath Immortality.' " Willie this doctrine i* measurably reasonable and has many passages of scripture to base il on, it still do** not •atisfy tho IOIII that desiros to live; and the still inoro rational view is the on* that somewhere sometime, the soul will bo released from its clogs and como out into the happiness and joy that eternity finally has in sloro for all. At least it is pleasant to believe, in tho language of Rov. Geo. It. Merrill, of the 1st Congregational church, Minneapolis, that "those who do right in this world will have little cause to worry abont tho horeaftor." The beauty of this quotation is the word "do" instead of the word "believe," as is usually used in this connection. Actions speak louder than words and aro .more potout than beliefs. PROTECTION IN OLD VIRGINIA. NOT MCTCH HOPE. It is becoming more and more apparent evory day that the democracy havo not much hope of carrying tho presidential election this year. It is an open secret that thoy are conspiring with tho alliance in Minnesota, tho Dukotus, Kansas and some of the other western stales to throw their demo- crutio vote for the peoples' tiokot and thus throw the election into tho honso, which will be equivalent to tho election of tho democrat by the people. The following view of the case ooraoc from Washington: ••Six month* ago our domoeratic brethren were in good heart and cheerfully hopeful that they would eleot the next president, but the passing month* have brought many disappointments to them. Thoir ranks have been divided by liei'OJ contention, relative to their candidate and upon the leading questions of tariff and silver, whilo the various stato and municipal cleollous have shown a uniform republican gain sufficient if continued in November to giv* overy northern state to the republicans. These combinations havo had so depressing an oil'oot that it is now dilll- cult lo And n demoorat who will privately express confidence that the democratic party unn eleot a president this year. Conservative demnerats now lig- ure as certainly domoonitio only tho ••lid south, 159 votes, nnd Now Jersvy and Conueoliout, 16 vol»s, a total of 176. To eleot thoy mint havo 223. Without the vote of Now York they are hopelessly lost, and adding her voto to their sure vote thoy still lauk twelve of a majority uud must have either Indiana or Iowa. Figure it a* they will, tho situation contains Utile stinshiuo, fur there is now uo roaionable probability that they oan carry New York and muoh less that they oan carry Indiana or Iowa, consequently their attention 1* now turned toward another land of promise, that 1* to prevent an election by the people and throw tha election In tha homo of representative*.

It socpis that Dr. Holman, tho Minneapolis Methodist divine, who has created so much stir in the religious circles of the Hour city by his paper On "the popular revolt," on eternal retribution, holds to a belief in tho annihilation of tha wicked. This is a groat deal more reasonable and humane view than the eternal punishment dogma, but we did not suppose the Methodist cluirah allowed of such n b*lief. While this doalrine has a measure of the horrible in Iho idea of goiug out into the eternal night of nothingness, still it comes as a benediction and a morcy smspeakublo compared lo the moro horrible thought of eternal suffering and anguish visited upon the major portion of tho human race .for no other uppar- ont purpose than appeasing the wrath of an angry God. The Creator ootild bo just and still simply take away the life ho gave and allow death to be an eternal sleep. If the orthodox world had always taught this moro rational view there would not havo been go much skepticism and unboliof in the world to-day as there i*. To our mind, and wo bolioYe to the minds of the majority of m*n, the bare thought of infinite suffering for finite sin is suflloicnt to cans* a "popular rovolt," and tho belief that thero must be sonic mistake somewhere. Speaking of Dr. Holman'* views the Minneapolis Tribune of Tuesday says: "Hejooling the Idea of eternal torment a* unsoripttiral and incompatible witli tho (lootlino that God is love and the idea of probation and restoration as without Biblical authority, Dr. Holman liuds, after a long nnd oareful search of tho Bible, that for the incorrigibly wicked tho punishment is annihilation, l'ho one word which tho now scriptural version translates as hall is 'Gehenna.' tha ravinu whore tlio city of Jerusalem burnt its garbage. Therefore, maintains Mr. Holman, 'hell is the mora! garbago pile of the universe, it is tho great dump of tho city of God to which all tlio offal and refuse and all the failures and garbage In all God's moral universe shall be cast out lo bt dostroyed.' Thero are three prlnoipal ways iu whiuh cities dispose of garbage: To dump it into streams; lo burn it according to the plan at Gehenna; to transmute it and utilize il for fertilising the soil. Rev. Mr. Holman thinks burning is tha scriptural method. Tho world's way would be to dump it into the near- os f . stream, and hit it pollute life. Whilo rovoronds. Shutter, Sample and Simmons, resting upon the Universalist and Uuitarlau doetriaes of probation nnd restoration, would doubtless tnko up tho third method and convert tho garbage into elements of fortill/.atlon. Dr. Holman, hownvor, appears to havo strong scriptural grounds for his doctrine of annihilation. 'The wage* of Bin is doath,' he finds to be a continuous Biblical text. Only ho that believes 'has passed from death unto life' 'Thoy tiiab hear shall live' nnd tha rest shall be burned as 'ohnff,' 'tares,' 'stubblo' nnd 'dry branches,' b»lng_ employed Streets have been graded up, shnde trees planted, tiling lor drainage purposes put in, all of which has enst several thousands of dollar*. Mr. Howard Johnson has constructed a new saw mill, at a cost of no lots than $75,000. and work upon tli* Low- eneerg cotton mill is progressing. It will cost $10,000. These facts show tlio actual r**ults of proteetiou. A Southern Town Availing Itself of tho Advantages of Protection— Groat Prosperity Resulting From tho McKiuloy Act—Southorn Mills Brought Into Existence by Protection. (Norfolk (Va.) Southorn Progress.] Tho Chesapeake Knitting Mill, like •very other k» itting mill which has sprung into existence during the past two year*, in a direct result of tho ben- elieial effects of Iho McKinley tariff. But for thai tnrifl, there would bo no Chesapeake Kuitting Mill; Barton Myers would not be building one at Lambert's Point; tlio new South Not- folk mill would never have been proposed, and a number of new cities in the south which are furnishing a livelihood to many thousands would not be in existence. Tho farmers would not havo so large a market for their cotton, and in consequence the market for long logged collards and turnip tops would be much more limited. When "Old Bill" McKinley, ns tho vulgar free trade agitators donominato the industrial Christ, planned his tariff laws, ho laid tha foundation for southern prosperity. It is in ordor for the southorn "people to be careful that an over-indulgence in th6 dreamy free tradu theory does not destroy the germs of prosperity which the McKinlov tariff law has sown. Tho material advan tages of the south will be as nothing without the fostering inlluenco if protection. Tako off the duty on kail goods to-morrow, and every mannfac Hirer in the United Statos will reduce his pay roll nnd his force. There is no situation in the protection drama so ufl".otive, and at Ihe same time so interesting, especially in the face of the freo trade theory, as a knitting mill. Before the adoption of McKinley laws tho business was some thing in which the men who have created tho prosperity of the south, were not at all anxious to invest their money. The profits wore yery small, under Ihe most favorable circumstances, and with the f'ee trade sword of Damocles hanging above the slight thread of profit it is not at all surprising that but few mills were built the year bofore the passage of the bill and that many old ones closed tho doors. But with the passage of the beneficial protection laws of William McKinley, the old mills starlod thsir idle lLachineiy and Iho creators of tho laboring man's prosperity commenced erecting huge factories and furnishing employ mailt lo the people who seem lo bo continually conniving at tho overthrow of their own prosperity. The Chesapoake Knitting Mills is a typo of what protection has dono for tho people. A majority of the stockholders vote the domoeratic ticket principally because tho nanio republican is associated with a great deal that has been disagreeable. If these men voted from principle they would support the protection ticket—the tieket of tha party which has supplied them wilh their wealth but the name republican in tho south U associated with vice aud igno- rauco, with carpet baggers, with robbers, with murderers, with the infamous forco bill, consequently it is hard to make these men believe that tha protection which republicanism guarantees is not tho masque of a destroying battery. Do you know how lo break the solid south? Induce tho representatives of vice and crime who now assail it to Voto Ihe democrat!? ticket, and choko off the Cluiudlor, Ingalls, Lodge nnd Hoar gang. The better element of Iho south is for protection. It would voto the protection ticket, but for the constant mennee to society and homo with which certain members of that party threaten them. The Chesapoake Knitting Mill is as well conducted as any in America. It employs two hundred. people and directly supports ono thousand more. It has been the buildet of several luin- drod homes. It has enhanced the value of the surrounding property *ftven hundred per cent. It buy* $45,000 worth of cotton from tho Norfolk & Southern farmers ovory year, ft purchases $7,500 of wool from the Norfolk & Western sheop growers annually. Its business has helped build two g.'eal railroads. • It is like ovory other southern mill, the creature of protection. With the advent of free trade tho Chesapoake Knitting Mill and every other knitting mill will be compelled to close thoir doors. The Norfolk News and Courier presents a rosumo of two montns' work made necossary by tho Chesapeake Knitting Mill. It is a list of buildings erected fur the" accommodation of' the employes of the Chesapeake Knitting Mill, whieli was oroalud by the protective laws promulgated by the republicans, fciynon & Trosl and tho News and Coiricr are democrats, but their prosperity and their existence is dopon- dunl npon protoction.

The first of thoso, written by Mossrs. Nicolay and Hay, Prosldont Lincoln's private secretaries, contains tho insldo history of tho dark days of tho war, as soon li'om the Whito House. TniS SIBERIAN PAPBIlS, -by Ooorge Konnan, are attracting the attention of tho civilized world. The Chicago Tribune says that "no other magazine wtlolos printed in the English language just now touch upon a subjoot which so vitally intorests all thoughtful people in Europe and America and Asia." As is already known, copies of The Century ontorlng Russia havo thoso urtlclos torn out by tbo customs official* on tho frontier. ,— DUBIN0 1889 will publish the most Ini- foaturo that has yet found plnco in its pages.
