A delepato convention of the republicans of the fourth congrcsttonsl district of tho slate of Iowa, wilt bo lipid nt Now Hampton, Iowa, on Wednesday, August 10th, at 1 o'clock p. m., for tho purpose of nominating n candidate for reprssentatlvn in congress fov said dis- triot and for such other business as mar properly bo considered. The basis of representation will bo one dolegate to each county and one additional delegate to each 100 votes or fraction over 60 cast for Hon. II. C. Wheeler for governor, as follows, lo-wit: Allamakee 19 Cerro Gordo 30 Chickasaw 16 Clayton 23 Fayette 26 Floyd : 19 Howard 14 Mitchell 18 Winnosheik 24 Worth 11 By order of tho republican congressional committee, JAMBS R. BLYTIII, Chairman. WHY 18 IT? Our democratic friends, net only through thoir press and speakers but through thoir platform, take open and decided ground against not only tho Interests but the convictions of the northern soctiou of our common country, and in favor of the interest and convictions of tho southern soctiou, as that party understands them. In thoir platform they extomporixo a slump speoch in their desire and hnste to squulch a "force bill," which is, if it ever again materializes, only a bill to secure equal rights to all men, as guaranteed by tho constitution. And yet, after thus got- ting down on thoir knees before the south they dare not so much as consider the claims ef a southern democrat for either of the promlnont positions on the ticket. It is not because the south has no able men to select from. There aro Wattorson, Carlisle, and a number of others far inoro able than either Cleveland or Stevenson. So that cannot be tho eanso. Tho ono reason is so apparent, that ho who runs may read. It is that oven the democracy of the north feel it n; thoir bonos that tho south was not only traitorous and wrong during the war, but that it is so still, and cannot be entrusted with tho conduct of the government. The placing upon the ticket of a southern democrat would be a rod rag in the democratic eamp of tho north that would result in tho loss of ov«,ry northern state to their ticket, and would lusuro the I03S of congress beyond a doubt. Hence it is that tho south is allowed to do tho vrting and the bulldozing and tho dictating of polisy but is not allowed to hold the highest positions. The prohibition Is the first party with nerve enough to piano a southern ,mnn on the ticket, and that party well knows that it tun carry neither a southern or a northern state It comes with poor grace for tho democrats to charge tho republicans with being sectional when they dare not nominate a man who comes from the only section where democracy is unanimous. They will allow southern men to hold the honorary positions of temporary aud permanent chairman of their convention.,- but boyond this they dare not go, and the south dare not ask them to go further. It is a sad commentary on the boasted, nationality of the demo oratio party, and proves that it on the •ontrary is tht most sectional party in existence. I T la wonderful to see with what alacrity the democrats come'to the support of Weaver and the third party, just as they havo appeared to do ever since thoro has beon a third party, and the reason is just the sarao as in the other oases. It is to draw oil' every vole possible from the republican party, knowliif, that when it conies to the polls tho democrats will vote their tickets anyway. But in this oase in such states as Iowa there is even wore method in thoir tondness. We should not be surprised to see the democrats themselves ccaoentralo their vote on Weaver in the hope of thus carrying the state for him, as they know there is no ohauoe of carrying it for Clevo laud, and the outcome would be just the same if Weaver carried it as if Cleveland oarrjed it. In ell her oase Cleveland would get the vote of the stale. Bub just tho same neither of them Afill carry Iowa this year. On natloual issues there is . a majority of Iowa republican. T HE democratic Dubuque Telegraph sizes up the democratic outlook about right, I D the following, but the last two sentences are evidently thrown in to give a ray of hope to the afflicted though in the light »f what precedes them it must be falut indeed: ALEXAMMIIA, Minn., 6-26-'92. fnit'-st) Huitwt'K:--One of Koine's legends stands in ihoso words: "Let what each man thinks of tho republic be written Oh his brow." So let what each man thinks of tho political situation in this republic bo written on his brow. My convictions are thai, in selecting Harrison, at Minneapolis, to bo the national standard bearer of the republican party tor 1892 th» eotuen- tiua did well, in fact the only legleal thing It could do, and the only sure thing, to make victory certain In November. The nomination of White" lawlluid for sccoad place on the ticket, being of New York and a man of groat worth, was a happy choice and with this political combination, in that stale, it is saved to the party boyond the possibility of a doubt, and that too, as will be demonstrated in Novomber, hy an increased popular vote over that of '88. This we do not claim on the basis of state pride, but because of Rcid's pro-eminent qualifications which strengthen the tickot nationally as well as loeally. But still moro particularly do we claim this, because of Harrison's own slrongth therein which alone makes the Empire state certainly ropublican. The platform is a plain and conciso -declaration of republicanism and with it and such captains as Harrison and Ilcid, men whoso personal worth commands the rospocl and contideuce of a thoughtful people, no man or parly of men but what must go down in defeat before them. In the meantime the democrats have met in convention, al Chicago, and nominated a ticket. It is Clevoland and Stevenson. This wss done despite the solemn predictions of such donio cratic statesman ns Wnttorson, Flower, Vest, Gray and others, to the efl'e that if Cleveland is nominated he cannot be elected, and tho doing of such a thing would be equivalent to "marching through a slaughter house into an open grayo." But what olso could they do? Nothing of course. He was the man of Iho hour, being as Mr. Cockran, of Tara.nany farao, said: "A man of extraordinary popularity every day in Iho yoar except one and that is eloction da/." But being a party of blind enthusiasm, anything liko common senso, that might make so bold as to crawl into a democratic camp, had to go down before it. Thus being con ceded tho earth, by the best democratio authority, what more do wo wantP We reply nothing. We heartily agree with thoso gentlemen, and further we cheerfully accord them the title of true prophets. And although their efforts to steer elear of the "open grave' wore ignored yet when their predictions shall have been verified in November, as surely they will be, their party will then, whilo smarting under tho bitter anguish of defeat, recall to mind what hey said while in the •'slaughter house." "That a prophet is not with out honor save in his own country, 1 constitutes about all tho consolation these poor fellows can get out of the situation at present. In selecting Adlal E. Stevenson, of Illinois, for second place on tho demo cratic tiokel it cloarly shows, that tho dologates abandoned tho idea of being nblo to niako a combination that would enable then) to carry Indiana in Novem ber. But they havo not gained any thing by catering to state pride in Illin ois. State prido in national elections save in rare and exceptional cases, makos scarcely a difforonee of a thou sand votes; and that only, when the candidate is one of unusual popularity and very near to the people, by reason of some endearing qualifications, that make thoir lovo for him greater than their fidelity to party. For instancr n 1884 with the aid of Logan's inllu ence on the tloket the state was car ried, but by a plurality less than 8,000 in oxcoss of Harrison's In '86. While on tho othor hand, in Maine, Harrison' plurality over Cleveland was $.000 greater than Blaine's. So it would seom that slate prido is not a vory reli able thing for a party to pin its faith to, especially, if that is sought, througl tho personality of an obscure individual such as Stevenson. We beliove they call him "Ganeval," but the old reter ans all know and will bear in mind that his only right (if it ean be so con sidered) to that title, Is simply because he served ns assistant postmaster gen •ral under Cloveland. No it won't d they will have to conjure up a mor powerful slogan than state )fide to wrench Illinois from hcriank among sura republican staUs. Harrison our ried that stato in '88 by 23,101 plural ity, and no wall informed person will deny but that Harrison is strougoi now not only in Illinois, but in every state of this naion than he was four years ago. But it will not do for the republicans because of the bright prospeot* of sue- oess, to drop into a condition of indifference. But, to make a sure thing certain, thoy must be up and doing from now until victory is assured at the polls. Earnest, aggressivo work makes assured success doubly sure. So let every republican be vigilant to the ond, earnestly striving for the malntenaaoe of those principles vital to the welfare of the country and its citizens, and for the perpetuity of that party whioh stands for the best interests of the whole people. In Benjamin Harrison we have a man whom all republicans respect for bis ability as a statesman. A truer disciple of stalwart Amerioanlsra U nowhere to be' found, Always stead- for Harrison the convention acted Wisely. In sooth, but for the action of about fivo men Harrison would have been nominated by noclamallon. , But il is well as It is, and in putting him nt tho head of the ticket democracy was shorn of its last hope, and nothing under heaven can prevent us from winning another grand victory with that wise, conscientious and patriotic citizen of the republic, Benjamin Harrison. He has given tho country the best administration it kns ever had; and when tho smoke of the impending con- llict shall have cleared away, and when tho democrats shall have extricated thomstlres from tho antangle- raeuts of ddfeat, and when they shall behold tho republican baunor floating from tho dame of the national capilol —spiked there by the votes of a grateful peoplo; they gracefully bow to tho inoviiabie, and join with the rcptlbll cans in unanimously proclaiming him —Harrison tho itiviciblo!

Not the least of tho causes of con gratnlalion of the reoent republican state convention Is the fact of the brer Ity of tho platform adopted. It says all there is to say and then sensibly stops, The following is the complete text: "Resolved, That the republican party of Iowa, in convention assembled, here- teslilios in tonus of uuqunlillcd pprovul tho nomination of Genera" Benjamin Harrison and Hon. Whitelaw Roid as lliu stnndaui bearers in tho oming national campaign. The pros pority of the nation under the able and patriotic administration of President Harrison commands the admiration of all good citizens. Resolved, That tho platform enunciated by tho republican nalioual convention is broad enough and strong enough and all auflicient as a basis of union in the contest before the United States. While we unhesitatingly ratify and endorse that platform in all its parts, we point with special prido to its alt inula uptm the tariff issue, Ihe silver problem, and the temperance question, aad to the demands for a pure and untramraeled ballot. Resolved, That we donounce tho democratic party for its declaration in the recent national convention at Chicago, insisting upont he abolition of the national tax on the issue of state banks; that after more than a quarter of a century of continued prosperity with a sound curroncy, undor tho wise and beneficent system evolved and maintained by the republican parly, wu condemn and donounce Iho attempt to reinstate the wild-cat money ami worthless bank notos which at one tituo ruined all tho financial intorests of tho country." [Bute Register.! Before '.ho British Royal Commission on Labor, Mr. W. II. Drew, president ot tho Bradford and dis*net labor union, rccontly made tho statement that the avorago wages of weavers in ihe Bradford trade did not oxeeed i) shillings, or S2.10 a week. To invest! gato tho correctness of this statement tho Bradford Chamber of Commerce appointed a committee of seven. I D response to tho requests of thu commit' teu 11,779 replius as to wages in 1890 ami 11,825 as to wages in 1891 wore received representing over a hundred Finns. According to these the average wages of weavers for tho forirur year woro $3.24 and 83.08 for 1891. In this country, accovding to Carroll D.

WltnaiNiiil * INGALLS ON HARRISON. The brilliant ex-senator from Kansas interviewed last wook at Minneapolis and gavo out tho following picturesque estimate of President Harrison: 'That man, has a better assemblags of decorated, ornamentod and embellished possibilities of tho presidential nomination than any one that has been named. Ho came into public life in Washing'.on too late to enter tho strifes, which havo created destructive republican factions. He is not disliked by tho stalwarts nor by the half-breeds and he could be supported by both. He has the traditions which would help make him popular. He is a descendant of a regicide. One of his ancestors was in the first constitutional convention. His grandfather was president of tho United States. His father, was a man of note. He is liimself a man of brain. Ha makos a good speech. He makos no blunders. He is keen, quick wilted; he comes from a good focal point; he is central; ke is in a slate which is callod doubtful, and whioh it is important for the republicans to carry. Ha is popular there. He is a vory positive candidate. He is confident that he wjll win. Every movement that he makes indicates that he has extraordinary confidence in his rising sun." lloiv n Dcep-llynil Crlinlimt Mclmlriimu. "I was shallowing one of the worst ruffians on the East side," said a New Yoi'lc detective the other day.

This none in the wind of that eminoul slat isticlnn, Carroll D. Wright. The groat fact lhat the Registor wants to call attention to is that there is a differs ace betweoa wages paid in this country and the wages paid in England. The Btib ish manufacturer who employs labor at fil cents a day can mako woolen goods cheaper than the American manufacturer who pays $1.42 a day. If th English manufacturer is allowed to bring his manufactured goods over man had knocked a policeman senseless with a club, astheofllcer tried to arrest him for garroting a passer-by. I was Btanciing in front of a Bowery theater when I saw my man pass in with the crowd. I followed and took n scat behind him. I did not care to see tho play myself, particularly, but I thought it better not to make a row by arresting him in the house. When hu went outsldo that would here and that without tho payment of a &e time enough. The play was a melo' duty, he cau undersell tho American drama of the regular sort, only a Httlo manufacturer. That is plain. The more harrowing than usual. The vil- Amorican manufacturer must either lain was particularly villainous and tho close his factory, which would throw good heroine Unusually unfortunate, his employes out of work, or he must No one hissed at tho bad man's bad- meet tho English prices, which would mean reducing the wages ot the American woavers. This also is plain. The republican parly says Iho American manufacturer shall be compelled to do neither ono of theso things. It says in its last party declaration, tho platform adopted at Minneapolis, that "there should bo duties lovied equal to tho difference between tho wages abroad and at home." There is nothing unfair about lhat. Anything less than that weuld bo an injury to tho American workingman. Whoro is tho American woruingmnn who is not heartily in favor of such duties? Whero is thcro one who, whfn the faets are clearly prosomed to him, will vofuso to voto for tho party whoso candidates stand upon that declaration? What is tho position of tho democratic party on this question? The platform as read by the cammittec on resolutions at Chicago favored duties affording protection to the' exlent of tho difference in wages in this country and in competing countries. It contained a plain declaration in favor of ncas more than my friend the cutthroat. He howled with rage. And then he fairly blubbered over the woes of tho good people In the play. When virtue finally conquered, and vlllany was dragged off In handcuffs, he roared applause, stamped his feet like a pile- driver, ond was generally delighted.

The amendment was only saved by the magnetic speech of Henri Watterson. Had It not bean for him the anomaly would have been prosenled of both parties going to the country a unit on the two most prominent leases of tho day— tariff and silver. This proves conclusively that the republican positions on these questions are the posflions of the people, and thoy will be ratified by them in November. We are only surprised that so many demoorats, including Cleveland, favor protection. T HK great and only people's parly in natloual convention assembled, in the small hours of the morning of July 5th, nominated for president Gen. Jas. B. Weaver, of Iowa, and for vice presided Confed. Gen. Jas. G. Field, of Vi- glnia. After going the rounds of all the parties Wearer has finally got a noml nation for president, but It would be very little satisfaction to the average man to lead a forlorn hope, or to pull the chestnuts out of the fire for Clevo land. But Weaver isn't particular. W B omitted to state last week that Col. D. U. Henderson was renominated for member of congress in the 3rd dis- triot by acolamation, there being no other candidate. This is just as it should be, and we should think the rUibuque Timos man would feel like orawllng into a very small hole and drawing tho hole tn after him.

This plank was rejected try the convention and instead of il a declaration was insorled to the cIToo that all protective duties are unconsli tutional. Hore aro the declarations of tho two parties; '•RBI-UHLICAN : We believe that all articles which cannot be produced in tho United States, oxcopt luxuries, should be admitted freo of duty, and that on nil imports coming in competition with the products of American labor thero should be levied duties equal to tho difiereuee betwoon wagos abroad and al home." "DEMOCKATIO : We declare it lo be the fundamental principle of tho domo­ eratio parly that the federal government has no constitutional power to impose and colloot tariff duties except for the purpose of revenuo only, and we demand that the collection of such taxes shall be limited to the necessities of the government when economically administered." The domoeratio papers are now trying to make out that there is no froe trade in thoir platform. Tho peoplo should bear in mind that a plank deolaring in favor of duties to tho extent of the difforonee in wages in America and in othor countries was deliberately rejected at Chicago and a plank deolaring all such duties to be unconstitutional was adopted. Tho campaign must not be shifted. These are ihe issues as laid down by tho two parties. They must be met. TO HORSE BUYERS. Yo« A Tip Thnt May Uo Usoful When Are mt an Auction.
