While ho i» a good ami able man lie, like Cleveland mid our particular friend, Sweney, is politically a "buck titiin- hor."

He would command very faw democratic votes in Clayton or nnv other county, for the simple reason he has been a democrat once and turned his coat twice, and that is the ono tiling' a democrat never forgives in any man, a.i was evidenced in tho case of Judge Fellows. If anybody can draw democratic votes in Clayton or any other county it is such an anti-proiiihi- tion Gorman at Mr. /Ceigler. Some such a niaa in this presidential year could sweep tho district. At all events there 19 no safely in naming 11 defeated candidate. Kither I.arralice, ZeiVler or Fuller would bo safer, and safety is tde first consideration tin's year.

Holes is a good fallow but 11 tuna who lives for sixty yesis na a whig and a republican, and than oilers the butt-end of hit, life to tho democracy cannot be president of those United States." IU .»U'U J JL..J MRS. VICTOKIA Ct.AFMN-WoClDItl'U.- M AIIT IS *, who was oderously conspicuous in this country as n free I OTO advocate a quarter of a century ago, has returned fiom Knglnml, where she has resided a number of years and re-mnr- riud, in timo to run for the presidency. So far as is known none of the parlies are losing any sleep from foar of her election. Kvon Helva Lock wood is trampiil. "TIIK price of twine has hern advanced two cents per pound by the National Cordage Company, the twine trust, and there is lest than one-half enough mine to supply the farmers now in the hands of dealers. Of course the price, will he still farther ndratueri at the oxpeiiM' of the farmers, and yet Hie republican congressman voted against putting twine on the free list."- V'.lgin l>lu<. As the tariff on binding twine is only seven tent lis of a ecnt a pound how does it enable tho trust to raise the price two tents with the probability of a further rise? It is trust, not tarift, that doss is, and these trust* exisi in free trade Knglaad the samo as here. '•Down with all trusts." Tint Manchester Press has always boan ono of the rankest and most ultra prohibition papers in the stato, and has boon inclined t« think that a ropu'oliean hid no right to be anything but a prohibitionist. Hut it seems that the work of tho third party prohibitionists has about tired out Bro. Kaan, as it ought to tiro out any republican. The foolishness in New York eight years ago boat the great Blaine for president and now it has turned the stale legislature over to Tammany. This iB what tho latt Uveas lias to say about it: '•Tha honesty of the third parly prohibitionists may be judged by what they are doing in Malno, nnd what they have alroady done in New York. Nowhere are there more stringent laws against liquor selling than tn Maine. It wonld soon), to a man of ordinary common sento, that tho business of a prohibitionist should bo to help enforce the law as it standi, nnd to uphold the hands of tho party which passed and maintains the law. Unl liiey aro not doing this. On tho contrary, they are organizing a third' party movement, and it!« qutt.o probable thai thoy may succeed in enabling tho democrats to repeal tho prohibitory laws, as the same party has just helped the New York domoorats to do away with all restrictions on the traffic in liquors. 'Ilia not, pnssoil by tho legislature just adjourned, which gives the saloons of Now York permission to keep open seven days in tha week and at all hours of the day and night, is owing directly to tho efforts of the third party prohibitionists last fall. Miss Willard and her following of misled and misguided people must take solid comfort when tiny consider the ofl'eet of their work. They havo proved themselves the faithful and effective friends of the saloon, aud It is move than probable that they will keep on in their mischievous oottrso until there is not a law to restrain the sale of runt on any statuto book in tho union. What a glorlons victory tiiat will be for Miss Willard and brother St. John." IT looks a* if the persistent and s«em- ingly uncalled for attacks on Col. Henderson by his home paper, the Dubuque Times, would insure his renominalion if he will accept. Tho warfare made upon him is move intense than has ever been made by the democratic press. It is out of our district and in one sense we have no interest in it, but in another wo have. Tho Col. grew up as a boy here and wont to the army.from hare. Ho lias numerous relatives and a great many frtwiida here who take pride in Ids record, and we are of that number. Wo don't bclievo a word of tho slush peddled by tho Times, but believe there is something selfish behind this persistent warfare. JOUN Doi.i-u, at ono timo pastor of Ilia M. K. church in Poslville, but who several years ago retired from the pulpit and weut into politics 11s editor of tho Kldora Lodger, and afterwards represented Hardin county in tho lower houso of tho Iowa legislature as a prohibition republioan, has now dissarded republicanism and is running his paper 011 the independent basis, very much like Wright, of the Charles Cily Advocate. If such men had gone out of the party before thoy had weighted it down to defeat, at Gov. Koiosdid, they would hare been entitled to great credit. Hut the party is only loo glad to get rid of such dead weights even at the eleventh hour. Snob, mou are neither a crodit uor a help to any party, and tho uoonor they congregate into a littlo vmitunl admiration socioty of their own the bettor it will bo for all concerned. Anybody that it too good for the republiean parly is too good for earth. or the dealing houte clerks make the oxchangea for him, and in lets than half an hour the whole 10 million dollars of actual values have pasted from hand to hand. Indeed in thit case the balances may be paid in checks, so that next to no netual money of any kind is needed. The bank clearing IIOUBCS In nil the chief cities work tvgelher and thus an easy, simple, cheap svttem transacts a vast amount of business without the risk or trouble of carrying money, A check on one bank anywhere may travel In all directions thousands of miles, and through scores of handrf before getting back to the bank issuing it. At the present lime the banks accept as money from publishers and others the express and postal money orders and postal notes thoy havo recoivod from 1 heir correspondents or subscribers. These are sorted and arranged nnd taken lo 0110 bank direct or through the cloaring house, which bank takes the packages of such money orders etc., from all tho others, and settles with the postmaster for the whole in a lump for ihe day; and the samo with the different express companies. A very small fraction of one per cent, covers the cost of all these various exchanging*, and no money has to be handled, counted, lost or stolen. The same method of exchange exists between distant cities as between Chicago and New York. Though millions of dollars aro being daily paid by the east in the west for Us products, and by tho west lo the east for eastern inanu faclures, ale, lcry little money actually patsct between the two cities. It only when more payments happen to he going one way than the other, that money to make up the balance, is tout in one or the oilier direction by express. When money nnaits lo bo sent east, bankers bid up :i premium on drafts and oll'ar'2.') centt to $1.60 on $1.00(1, miliar than be at the risk and expense of tending monoy. We then say 'exchange' on New York is 'J5. or ,'it), or 7.S cents, etc., premium. If there are more drafts to go forward than there are payments to be made, the holders of these drafts frequently otlor them below par, at 2b eenls or more on $1,000, and we say 'exchange' is low on New York. Tho money going the rounds, or in circulation, amounts lo about 2] billion dollars or f J,S.Jl,(l n (S.f>'.U. which amounts to $:17 15 for each man, woman and child of our GJ,«'.'2,'J60 inhabitants; or $17bV>2 for each of iy,fi!>0,H,2 families. Of course a part of this is held in reserve in banks, etc., for constant calls, and as security against debts; also iu private hands, in stockings, tucked away in chimnoys, stove pipes, between bedding, etc., etc. The total amount, however, is available if called out for use. Owing to the system of checks, drafts, orders, eleariug houses, etc., explained above, only n small part is actually needed, "very dollar of actual money being equivalent to a balancing in transactions of values oil tho average of ten times greater or more. We sco above, that in the Chicago ami other western transactions, only about $1.00 actual money is needed foi SCO in business transactions in Chicago and between the country and Chicago."

From all appearances the republican national convention aoon to be held in Minneapolis will be the moat representative hotly over hold In this country. Added to all the heretofore recognized nationalities, such as Germans, Scandinavians, Irish, etc., not excepting representatives ef the African race, a full blooded, eduoatod Indian will ropviv sent Oklahoma, and a woman will represent Wyenilog In part. If this is not veprotentlng all nationalities and class os It would be haul to do it. But then the republioan party is tho party of the people and it is proper that the people should bo represented. It will be the greatest convention nnd attended by a greater number of tho eminent man of tha day than any convention of any party ever hold in tho United States, It will unanimously rcnominata President Harrison aud the people will triumphantly ve-oleot him next November. There It now little doubt of ibis on tha part of the democrats themselves. T HB little opposition to the renomin fttton of President Harrison In the republican party is in a pitiable oondl lion.

HOW MONEY GOES ABOUND. Tho common people are so ignorant of the manner iu which tho finances af a country aro carried on (wo confess to Ihe same ignorance to a grout degroe) wo have thought it would bo interesting to our roadors. as it was to oursclf, to give the following very plain and lucid information from the last Orange Judd Furmar. It wilt bo teen that through tho system of exchange it requires but a comparatively little money trj do the business of ihe eouuley: "Tho constantly increasing facilities for exchanging values between both near and remote points, including foreign lands, by means of bank nnd commercial drafts and cheeks, express and postal money orders nnd postal notes, are diminishing the use and need of bank bills, greenbacks or gold and silver ooln. tor example, last Saturday (May 7) the banks in Chicago did a business betwoen themselves that is, paid to and received of oaeh othor, f 16,414,840; yet they usod in doing this only ?1,861,790 of actual money, or $1.00 for each »24.28 of business done, and probably less, as part of balances are often settled with oortifieater instead of money. The drafts, checks, money ordors and monoy they used In settling with each othor, was what they received tho day before from their customers, who in turn usod a ilnillav amount of cheoks, etc., in transactions with eaoh other and at tho banks. So in faot tho two days' business >as done with about 11.00 in S)6.00 of the values passing from one to another. Generally when a man sells a lot of ontlle, hogs, or sheep in the Chicago markets, he does not want a mass of bills or gold or silver to carry around town, homo in tho ears, and to bo temporarily at least kept in his house; In all thoso places it would bo exposed to loss, theft or Are, He tskos about what actual money lie wlshos to spend before he gets homo, and takes a check on a Chi- oago bank for the balance This is payable to ids own order, and come quently is of no value to any one except himself until he voluntarily makes it so by signing his name. This oheok he deposits in a home bank, or with a met chant, and gets money as ho needs it, or pays it out In chocks AS oooasion requires. The homo bank veeelvlrg the oheok from him or tho merchant, forwards it to his 'Correspondent' bank In Chicago or elsewhere, gets credit for it. and when some one in his locality wishes to send money to Chicago, or Now York to pay for something:, the bank simply issues him a oheok or draft against •lie credit in Ohloago. This draft may go to <v wholesale tuerohant or manufacturer or some 0*0 else, pi* to some other ulty. The final receiver deposit*; jt to his own oredli in his Chioago bank, Others do the samo with other checks at oilier banks.
