THE MAN NO« ESSENTIAL TO strooESS. Unlike forao occasion* la the past •ince the history of tho republican party began, it is not necessary for tin suc- eets ot the party at thii time that any particular republican bo nominated at Minneapolis next week. 1'liore hato been timoi. as in the caae of Lincoln. Grant and GarOeld, when the party ai one maa, pointed to one of theio groat men ni the person to load it to victory. In 1884, when Blaine was nominated, it wu muck leu a miitake of the party than the force of circumstances - combined, which encompassed tiii defeat. He ought to have been elected, and we beliore a majority of tho democratic party alwayt hare ragrotted that ho was not eleotcd. Hut tho republican party had boon a long timo in power and an apathy had grown up and tho human desire for a "change" had boon developing, which, coupled with the unfortunate accidents of the campaign turned the tables nnd Cleveland was duolared elected by a bare soiatch. It is hardly probable that any republican could have been olected that year, as it seemed to be a docree of fate that the party should pass under the rod that yoar so that the people—the generation tken living—might have an opportunity of sceiag tho working? of one democratic administration. And again four years ago tho man had a great deal to do with the succoss of the party, aud wo doubt if any other nomineo would havo bean successful. Mr. Harrison made the fiaost campaign ever made by a presidential candidate. He did not travel over the country and make the eloquent speeches that Mr. Blaine did, but he made little speeches every day at homo which captivated tho people. Ho niado no mistakes and he had no Or. Biirehards to make mistakes for him. He raado a great campaign and wrcited victory where it Roomod a very uncertain quaatity. While ho has had no opportunity to give the country a brilliant administration (a presidont seldom has in times of profound peace) ho has given us a safe and creditablo administration, and as such wo believe is ontitled to a renoniination and a sure ro-clection and wo havo no other idea than that he will bo both renominated and re-elected. And yet should wither Allison, MoKin- ley, Heed or Algor bo nominated wo can soo no reason why oithor should not bo elected. Had Hlaino not written his Fobruaiy lottor he would certainly havo boon nominated and olected, but now it would look like double dealing fcr him to aeoopt the nomination and we do not beliovo ho will do it. It would now so alisnalo tho thousands of friends of the presideul that bis election would certainly bo jeopardized, and wo beliave that noithor he nor the party can afford to taks the chances. While wo bolieve that by far tho safest and best eoui'fe in to renom­ inate President Harrison we are by no means in the condition of the democrats in respect to a candidate. We havo much available timber and we oannot make a very great mistako. Every indication points to republican sucocss, not only in the presidential but in tho congressional fight. Protection, reciprocity and an honest dollar are the watchword* that will insure victory In spite of everything that can bo brought against them. So we leave tho matter with tho Minneapolis convention with the confident oxpeotatioa that it* deliberations will strengthen the hands of the party and pavo tho way to the grandest victory of modem years. THE St. Louis Clobe-Domoorat, u republican paper, is credited with saying: "No legislation of any sort could pro- vont tho suppression oil the negro vote so long as the negroes attempt to vote in masses. Wlion they divide up their favoiv between tiio parties the race issue will drop out of politics and they will ba allowed to oxoreise the franchise as freely as their white follow citizen*." As this extract is taken from a democratic papor we cannot believe that it ever had the sanotion of a republican papor, but if it did that paper is unworthy of the name of republican, for its language is subversive of free institutions. If the negroos aro not allowed to vote in masses as they desire to vote, why should the white men in tho same seotioK be allowed to "roto in rnnssesf" As the south is now oonstltutid praoti- eally all tht whit* men vote the doroo- eratlo ticket and tho negroes are not allowed to vote at all, became they do not divlda their tot*. "What is sauoo for tho gooso is sauce for the gander." If the white voto wore divided as it is reoonimondod that the nogro yoto bo divided, every southern state would bo republican. But the proper way to do is to lot every American citizen, white or blaak, vote, and vote as he pleases. This will not be a republic until this is done. 3 J T should be borne in mind by the Blulne boomors that n defeated candidate it always a lionvy weight. This is . tho worst olog that Cleveland has to contend with and if ho is beaton at Chicago that will be the cause of it.' The * presligo of defeat olings to a nan like death and vary few men can surmount it, "Nothing nuteeeUa like success." D MMT U QO succeeds. Tu« Springfield (Maw.) Republican (independent) declares that tho present desaoorntfo congress has '<rieii1/earned , defeat, It hM proved llsslUt every ^yBJMrtfurlhyi unorganised lejulsrlau ' ,k •> £ & " * # 1 Wo hope Bro. Otis, of the new Monona Leader, and the peoplo of that enterprising and growing town will exeuse us for tho remarks whleh follow. It is too good a theme for an editorial to let pass by in silence, whou we deem it a mattor of so muoh importance. We understand that tho republican element there would not support the newspaper enterprise if it was to be democratic, aad that tho democrats wore equally opposed to having It republican in politics, so the middle ground of neutrality was decided npon. As Bro. Otis has twice in his life been the editor of republican papers and once for yoars boon the editor of the democratic McOregor Times, it probably would make but lilllo difference to him which party he cspousod, but how lio can be nothing wo are at a loss to see. And if he can be we do not understand why the good -poople of Monona should desire him to bo. An open, conscientious and oonsistont enemy to as is far proferable to a man who we do not know whether is an enemy or a friend, aud who in fact is neither. To us a neutral paper is a constant contradiction aud unworthy the support of any party. To say that an editor has no political convictions which he elierUho* aud would like to advocate is to say that he has nut sufficient ability to conduct a papor anywhere, lie would be on a par with a christian who felt too good to unite with any chureh, and therefore remained on the outside and fought thorn all. This would bo consistent for mou like Hob Ingersoll, who believe in nothing, but it would hardly be so for a man who accepted tho bible and only found fault with church gnverament. It is necessary and honlthful to havo two political parlies to watch oach othor and keep corruption from creeping in, but wn never could see any ocea sion for more than two parties, or for anyone remaining outside of one of these parties. Experiouce siuce the founding of this government has, demonstrated that there can be but two prominent partios, aud that reforms must bo wrought through one of these parties, if wrought at all. Hence independence insido of party lines is com msndable. for this is what insures needed reforms. Wo believe that it is the proper mission of the party editor to advocate roforms in his party, as well as to advocate tho claims of those he beliovos to bo the best men for office BEFORE nominations are made, after whieh he should submit to the decision of hid party and support tho ticket, as to do otherwise would be to jeopardize hi* parly, which oaghl to be of greater importance than tho success of any man. As political parties are composed of human material they aro not and cau- not bo perfect, neither would any independent or neutral citizen evolve a perfect party if auy ono ot them had the power to fnrnlsh a party to order Every man has his own convictions as to which of the two groat parties more nearly fills his political ideal, and we bolievo ho should unito with ono of them and lot liis light shine, elevating his party up to his standard, if por- clianco it. is below it. Wo have just as much sympathy for the honest democrat an for the same kind of a republican, beeauso in that case it is only a matter of opinion anyway. We have almost as many democratic as republican roaders and we bolieve thero is not ono of them but would rather we would write according to our convictions, as wo always do, than to writo something we did not beliovo ourielf from fear of offending somebody. Wo were not built right for a neutral editor and for one we aro thankful for it. It is our "desire nud prayer" to bo fair anil oandul always, conceding the same rights to others that we ask for ourself, but in the gloat battle of life, and especially of politics we ask no man to bo a cipher or a neutral (which is tho same thing) and we cannot bo ono our­ self. "Ye cannot serve God and Mammon." SUNDAY OPENING. Tho Inter Ocean of last Saturday closes an able editorial in favor of opening tho world's fair on Sunday, ns follows: "The Rev. Dr. Gifford, of Immanuel Baptist church, in a sermon, a synopsis of which was published In the Inter Ocean last Monday, not only advooated that the fair should bo thrown open on that day, but that tho prioo of admission should bo greatly reduoed thus giving special inducements for the visits ou that day of those wage earners who oan Illy spare tho time or the money to visit it any other day in the week. That class of the people certainly ought to be given every possible opportunity to become familiar with the fair, for surely none will bo raoro improved thereby and certainly it Is wise to otter thorn every inducement practicable to the study of tho objtut lessons that will there b« afforded. But aside from this there is another reason which argues more potontly for the opening of the fair on Sunday than the accommodation of tho laboring olasses. It Is expected that during the lime of the fair there will bo dally in the oity of Cltleago front ono hundred thousand to live hundred thousand visitors. To those who have studied tho question the shutting of the doors of the fair against this multitude of strangers in our midst on Sunday would bo to give onoouragement to vice and debauchery. It has been said, and doubtless with truth, that the saloon keepers and brewers of Chicago would willingly pay a largo sum to the managers of the fair if they could have the gates scoMi'eij closed against visitors on Sunday. Without doubt the other amusement managers here would also pay well. It would certainly add large ty to tho profits of saloon keepers and amusement raauagors generally ro have this vest multitude of strangoia without any definite place to go when Sunday earue. It seems strange that any person with a sound kuowledge of human nature and practical infoinjatlou as to tho temptations of a groat city would for one moment advocate Sunday olos- iag undor »rion -oironmitKnoe*. With lliu vletouf elaratnt*, thus given full •way, H will tertatnly bo * question at the alow of t\>* fair wbetuer the good (MXtompllehed DM overb»l»nQ«d the oyll , luoldsnt to the oalllu* th« millions to | tui» (reft, oitjr." *'?;r vi " :i 'j TB»«E is talk that John J. Ingalls will be temporary nnd "Bill" McKinley permanent chairman of the Minneapolis convention. VENGEANCE ON THE BAROM-' ETSB. L AST week Wednesday the soldier's monument nt Crcsco was unvolled, presioing older, Rev. II. H. Green, delivering the address. M ASOX CITY has been stirred from center to circumference in religious mailers by a revivalist from Philadelphia, Dr. L. W. Munhall. TUK rep'.iblican state convention has been called to convene at Des Moines, Juno 29th. C'sunty committcos should make an early call for county conventions to the end that full delegations be present. ThiB is a very important yoiir politically and everybody should (,ivo the subject tho attention it demands. OHK of the most destructive cyclones both in life and property that has ever visited the west struck southeastern Kansas on Friday night of last week, sweeping through tho city of Wellington and a couple of smaller towns near by. The death list reaches nearly fifty and the damage to property will fool up at least a quarter of a million. Since then that section has been flooded with rain and devastated with hail. So far this has been a very discouraging soason almost everywhere IT is a groat misforluue to Hie party that the coterie of malcontents and sore heads should have sprung into the arena to attempt to beat Presidont liar rison. It will inject into the campaign a certain amount of acrimony and bitterness that ought not to exist, and might causo defeat in a closo election Tho nnly redeoming feature is that the democrats are in a much worso dilcm ma. It is impossible for them to nom inato a man nl Chicago that will have the enthusiastic support of tho entire party, nor Loarly so much so as Harri son would hayn of the lopuhlican party Not a state convention and not a prom iuent man has thus far arraigned the administration of President Harrison It is aboye reproach and hence there should be no opposition this year. THE supporters of Blaine are in the habit of saying that he is tho strongest candidato that can ba nominated because he has the most enthusiastic following. This is true, but while h has tho raost enthusiastic friends ho also has the most tireless enemies, as was domonstralod eight years ago. No man who has occupied such a position has over been electod president. Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Charles Snronor an Win. II. Seward ware of that class. They were the ablest statesmen of thoir time but the jealousies that thoir greatness engendered were a bar to their sueceis. The democrats look to Clove land with tho same roverenco that the republicans look to Blaiuc, but with far less reason. And yet few of them believe that he could bo elected, if nominated. The enmities and jealous ies that he ha« etigmidnred, even out- lido of New York, make his candidaoy almost the synonym of defeat. It is a noteworthy fact that the republicans hope for the nomination of Cleveland and the democrats strongly desire that tho convention next week be stampeded for Blaine; and in both instances the desire comes from the same cause, lha hope of defoat because they aro both defeated candidates. It is generally safe for a political party not to no.niu ato a candidato that tho opposition desiras. All of which is respectfully submitted to the Minneapolis and Chi cago conventions. DAIRY FARMING. [E. C. Bennett in Rural Life.] "Thero aro no dairy farmers on earth who are making more money than those of the west, says Hoard's Dairyman. That is a statement which seems fully substantiated by known facts. And the further question now arises, "Aro dairy farmers as prosperous as other farmarsP" Tho answer to this is plain to any one who will travel over Iowa. Ho will find tho improvements and substantial evidences of prosperity in the dairy portions of the stato. In all parts will prosperous farmers be found, but the general thrift is iu the dairy portions. And this brings us to a topic not yot dissussed in Rural Lito—how would continued wot weather afieot dairying as compared with other farming? How would a eoro failure affect both classes? This has not been disoussed hero because tho weather hue been dry since tho Rural Life was born. Dairyraon should ho thankful. Prosperity is partly a relative term. Those who do better than others aro considered prosperous, those who fall in the roar are not. The wet weather, while iu souse respects discouraging to dairymen, is much less so to western dairymen than to other dairymen and to other farmers oast or west. Who but the dairymen is putting money into his pocket evory day so far this springP Aud the daily showers make grass, the grass makes milk and the in ilk brings cash. Field work has been abandoned, but dairying ha< not skipped a eog; it has gone right along. If the worst forebodings happen, if our »oru can not be planted in time to mature, than there will be no corn to 'sell, none good for fattening pork or beet, but tho fodder and "nabbins" will make good butter and a lot of it. It is worth more for that than for any other purpose, and this leaves dairying still ahead. The meadows will be something pleasant to contemplate again. Hay will keep staok steers, but will sot make beef. To wake a dollar's worth of beef would require buying two or Hire* times as muoh graie ns to make a dollar's worth of butter. And so dairying has lets to fear than other kiqda of farming. Tho raouoy churned out of milk day by day Is tho money you are sure of, the monoy yon oxpaot by nnd by from other sources is like tho bird In the bash, you may not ? ' ;et it; If the skies and the soil prove avorable to corn raising later on the dairymen will share in the benefits. If they do not, he nan make more out of the pastnre, the meadow nnd the oat field than any other farmer, and has less to worry him in any event, He oan utilize such ojttra orops as millet to better advantage, He oan feed to tho cows almost everything that grows, be it of roots, of grain, or of grass, nnd turn it Into uash, Now, dsiryiuon, f'on't pout and stick out your lips far enough for » potato to lie on them.

The matter is settled, he declares, aod "I do not want to indicate by any discussion of the subject lha there is any question to discuss." This proves nothing more than Mr. Dickinson's confidence. But granting that he is ritjlit, then democratic dofest is as certain as Cleveland's nomination. One will follow the other ns surely ns day follows night.- -Dubnqun Telegraph.

According to the records January and February of that year were warai and springlike, March was cold and stormy. Vegetation had gotten well along in April when real wintor set in Slaet and snow fell on seventeen different days in May. In Juno there was oitlier frost or snow every night bul throe. Tho snow was live inches deep for sov- eral days in succession in tho interior of Now York and from ten inches to three feet in Vermont and Maino. July was cold and frosty, ico formed as thick as window panes in ovory one of the New England states. August was still worse; ice formed nearly an inch in thickness, and killed nearly every green thing in the United States and in Europe. In tho spring of 1817 eorn which had been Uept over from tho crop of 1816 sold for from to $10 a bushel, the buyers purchasing for seed. Wo have had other cold summers, but none that havo equaled 1816 in that respnet. On May 10, 18S5, snow fell to the depth of a foot in Jamestown, Va., and was piled up in huge drifts in most of tho northern states. Thero was snow in many parts of Iowa nod Illinois on May 11, 1878, and again as late as May 28, 1882.—-Ex. HE'S A JOLLY OOOD FELLOW, Orlfrlti of n Timo AKHiiclutctl With u Toy. uliir Sonft.
