CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION POSTPONED. Chairman Blythe, ot tho fourth (lis fiot republican committee, has issued the following notice: "The republican convention for tho domination of a representative in con gress for tliQ fourth district has boon postponed by action of tho congressional committee, and will bo held at Now Hampton, Iowa, Aug. 21. 1392. Conimitteo.iien aro requested to givo one notice of this change, both to the public uml lo dologates to tho convention if such delegates have been chosen. JAS. E. HLYTHK, Oliii>it. of Congressional Committee WHY NOTP The Dubuquo Herald's Dos Moines correspondent, who Is supposably the nou of tlio editor of that paper, Gov. Bales' private secretary, says that there is no indication that many former republicans who voted for Hoios will vote for Harrison this year. He inter- posos no argument to prove his slnto- mefit/.iiml lienee we ink, why tiolP As we have before slated, ami it has not been questioned, evevy ono of these Rotes republicans supported tho democratic- ticket solely on account of prohibition, and have always maintained that ion uationnl issues they were just as £,ood republicans as ever. As there is absolutely no prohibition in tho republican platform, state or uationnl, this year, what in the world is lo hinder thoso man from voting the ticket? To bo consistent thoy oan do nothing olio, '.thousands of them did vote for Harrison four years ago, and ho represents just the same principles and the gnnio party now that he did then. We aro therefore conslininotl to ask why they will not veto this year the same that thoy have voted nt other presidential elections,? Tho fact is tho groat majority of thorn will voto tho earn*. If prohibition should again bo nn issuo they will doubtless be as independent as they have boon in the past. Rut this year they will vote their convictions on national issues, and hones will vote for Harrison. This is the only logical conclusion warranted by tho situation. Is it not an open iu-uilt to the intelligence of the poople to maintain Uml free trade will provo a panacea for tho labor troubles that wo aro experiencing? Is I here a man, woman or ohild that believes that the price of labor Would not bo ruducod ono-half by free trade, and that tho poorer classes would not bo reduced to pauperism by tho rash experiment? The laborers of this country aro not in tho habit of living on oat meal gruel and a soup bono, as thoy do in tho old world, where starvation wages is tho rule. Thoy never will come to this stylu of living in this ootiutry without war. If they aro noi satisfied witli tho wages thoy now veooivo, which enables thorn to live almost in luxury, how will it bo when these wages aro out i» two? Thoy nov- ur will voto to hayo it done while they have their roasou. THE Bhooting of Friok was tho direct outgrowth ot anarchy and disregard of Mil properly rights. Is it not time that ovary law abiding citizen took a stand for law and order us against all species of anarchy and nihilismP It this is not deoe, and done speedily, neither life or property will bo worth a straw In a short time, and instead of having n government we shall have only chaos, With the dynamite bomb and the revolver as tho only ergiiinouu adduced'. We cannot afford to encourage this str.ia of things. Just now the Dubuque pipers are falling over eoeh other over the brass works recently sold, it ml the proposition to remove the plant to somo other cily where largo bonuses are offered. Tho Telegraph makes a strong plea for their retention and exempting taxation for a period of ten years, with some oilier inducements, in order to retain the plant, because it will employ 1.00 men. Tho ludicrous part of it is it is so inconsistent with the Telegraph's idea of free trade that it is constrained to givo ii half column exenso for its position on tho brass works, which is that as other towns aro offering inducements for the location of industries Dubuquo must do the same or it cannot get new enterprises or retain what it has. In other words Dubuquo fitids itself confronted with a condition, not n theory, and its only course is lo act, just as tho nation finds itself confronted with a condition ami tins acted, through the MeKinlcy bill, protecting tho industries wo h.ivo and stimulating others not yci in existence. Dubuque does not have to have brass works, nolther doos tho country need to have manufactures of any kind; but nil experience proves that manufactures aro the lifo blood, not only of a city hut of a country, and that neither can amount lo much without them, for without them no labor is attracted or employed, and henco the city or tho country docs not grow or develop. Just imagine what such an industry would bo to I'ostyilln. Tho addition of ISO families, with n weekly outlay of $l/>00 per week to our merchants and other business men. Would it not make i'ost- villo a hummer of a town, and would it not help overy farmer tributary to the town in the way of an incrctsed demand for all the products of the farm, as well as to add to tho value of evory acre of land in the neighborhood? There is no question nV.out this, and all parties couccdo it, and all aro ready lo take hold and encourage such industries everywhere. It is not alone that they give employment to labor, though this is a groat factor. Thoy give a healthy impetus to evory concoivablo business. Tltuy must havo homes to livo in, and bunco tho carpenter, tho mason, the painter and tho common laborer havo employment. Thoy must oat, and hence iho grocer, tho butcher and tlio farmor aro drawn on. Thoy must bs clotliod, and hunce the clothior, tho dry goods merchant, tho shoe dealer, etc., have business. They aro sometimes sick, both physically and spiritually, and henco tho doctor n'ntl minister aro benclitiod, and oyen the newspaper gots a little something out of the wreck, if it is uo more than an occasional marriage, birth or death notice.' Of course, as we said, Postville, Dubuque and tho United Stales can get along without theso manufactures, hut can we afford to do it? Neither one can get them uuless it is made an object for capitalists to engngo in them. The protective tariff affords that object on general principles and tho towns compete for tho location, on tho principle of homo reciprocity. Thoy help tho towns, tho towns divide up by helping llicin, and mutually thoy build up tho town and develop tho country. It is a false notion that so many havo fal- leu into that tho ideal condition is to render no nssistnnco lo anybody or lo any enterprise where tho dividends aro not mtulo directly to tho individual. Some will not oven pulronuo a newspaper or a church bocaitso thoy can soo uo dollars mid couts coming back to thorn directly. These people are gonuino froo traders. They will send for tho DosMoincs Register or Loador beoauBO by clubbing thoy can got thorn for 00 ots. n yoar, whilo their homo paper costs a dollar or a dollar and a half. If they go to church at nil thoy aro othorwiso engaged when tho "hat" passos by. If thoy can save ton cents thoy will go to McGregor to do their trading, because, don't you know, thoy believo in buying where they enn buy choapostP Dear friends, no town can be built up nnd mado to prowpor, no country can bo brought to the full moasnro of prosperity and development withort "protection" and reciprocity. Wo cannot holp others without helping ourselves, and wo are unworthy of any help unless wo aro willing to help othors. Civilization nnd progress can bo maintained in no other way. STRIKES IN ENGLAND AND AMERICA. Tho shooting of H. C. Frick, chairman and manager of the Carnegie iron works, in his office in Pittsburg, lust Saturday afternoon, is ono of the unpleaBantcsl outgrowths of the Homestead difficulty. Tho redeeming feature is that the would be assassin was not one of tho strikers and was not a member of the amalgamated union, but a crank from New York. So that while the strikers aro not really responsible for the dastardly act they aro indirectly responsible for croating an oxcitement calculated to develop Just shell results. It is a similar condition to that which nerved tho arm of Guil- enu to murder Garfield and Uooth to assanbinalo Lincoln. It is tho result of the unrest of tlio people, the dissatisfaction with surroundings on tho part of laborers anil the willingness of party newspapers, for political oiVcet, to oon- demn capitalists and champion the CAUSU of strikers whether they are right or wrong. Had every great newspa- por in Iho laud condemned the rucont strike, as thoy ought to have dono, when it took the position of aggressiveness and armed tho workmen lo keep out non-union workmen, tho matter would have boon very soon disposod of and no Russian Jew would have sought the life of Frick. Tho time is not distant when it will cease to bo popular for party organs to pandor to riots and bloodshed add all manner of lawlessness in tlio hopo of manufacturing parly capital. This country is not yet given over wholly to anarchy, and not far hence tho laws of the land and the rights of property will bo maintained nnd rcspocted, and just such doings as thoso at Uomestead aro going to expedite tho day. Tariff or free trade chnff will not blind tho eyes of the law if it docs temporarily blind the eyes of tho people It is more important to Know that wo have a governiuont than that any political hobbies should be crowded to the front. THE RESPONSIBILITY. FiticK will recover. TUE first session of the fifty-second congrose is drawing wearily to a close. So far us any good lo tlio country Is conoori'ed it might as well havo adjourned threo months ago. It has been ft long drawn out wrangle over political advantages, with nothing auoomplishod. Even iho appropriation bills, many of thorn, aro liable lo go o?er to the next session to bo passed as deficiency bills. It was the "dangerous majority," of which Henri Wnt- torson spoke, that has made this session of uougrsss barren of good to tho country, oud which will assist in preventing mioh a majority in tho next congress. Everybody now sees that It is n bad thing for the country to have congress and the administration divided politically. Thoy should, all bo republican ov nil democratic, and then the party in power would bo rosponsi- blo for all legislation and for all failure of legislation. Tho almost unanimous, democratic majority wont into the present houso with the watchword: "Down with tho iniquitous McKinley bill!" and what has it dono? Why. nothing, of course. It did not intend to tfoany- u.t,..- n It is characteristic of tho democratic press to chargo everything that cornea out unsatisfactory to the republican party. The most stupid charge of this kind that has cumo to tho surface lately is, by iuforence at least, that tho republicans in congress are responsible for the tact tint pensioners are obligod lo wait for their money. That they havo had to wait is true, but the res- prnsibility is solely and only with the democratic congress, which refused to appropriate money enough to carry tho pensioners through tho year, and this fact was known just as well when Iho appropriation was made as it is now. On this subject tho Manchester Press says: "Tho democratic papers announce with startling and exultant hcadlinos, that tho national treasury is empty— 'Uuclo Sam (lusted,' as tho Dubuquo Telegraph puts it—nnd that the payment of pensiou claims cannot, there- foro, bo mado. It is a fact that pension payments aro deferred, for wain of funds, hut it is not because thoro is no money In tho treasury. It is because this useless, do-nothing democratic congress has neglected or refused to pass the necessary appropriation hills. '1 hoy havo found limo to pass a $60,000,000 river and harbor bill, two-thirds of which is a clear stoal, hut havo none to provido for tho uioit who put down tho rebellion. And democratic editors aro shouting for joy, at this outrage on tho votorans." Foil somo unaccountiiblo reason wo don't soo any suoh news items as tho following going the rounds of tho democratic pross: 1 "During tho seven months from Sept. I to April 1 the oxpovts of tho United States to Cuba, for tho past three years, wero as follows: 1890 $ 7,675,071 l »9l 7,981,888 1892 11,007,438 Tho Increase of $8,625,550 for tho seven months ending March 31, 1892, as compared with tho like period tho yoar before, credit to the McKinley bill and its reciprocity clanso • that 'fraud' which 'prohibits trade,' you know." ANY ono would think from reading tho democratic papers that Cartor, Iho chairman of tho republican committee, was Iho man who is running for president instond of Harrison, from tho abuse that is being heaped upon him. Rut wo ought to let our friends of the opposition havo the pHastiro of abusing somebody. Thoy can say absolutely nothing against President Harrison, and if il is any satisfaction to them to abuso Cartor they aro wolcomo to do FO. It will ucithor hurt Carter or tho ropiiblicau party. THE celebrated criminal altornoys of the northwest, W. W. Erwin, of St. Paul, and Goo. W. Argo, of Sioux City, hayo boon retained to defend tho Homestead strikers, tho St. Paul and Minneapolis labor unions raising tho iiunoy to defray their expenses, which is nil tlio pay thoy demand. It will bo a grand opportunity for thorn to ndvor- tiso themselves in tho oast, v aud will mako -.hum solid with tho labor element. [Stale Register.1 Tho slleiiuu of the democratic papers '• in regard to the trouble at Conor i d'Alciie is significant. At Cour d'Aleuo more men havo been killed limn al Homestead. Tlio danger to property has been much larger. As many men have been involved as at Homestead. The national guard had not only to bo called out, bill '.he federal army lo preserve tho peace. Why is there so much silence in regnrd to this trouble and why so much ado about the trouble nt Homestead? Tlio answer is that the democrats take the trouble in the protected industry and hopo to make political capital out of it. They have had nothing to say about tho coal miner's strike at Durham in free trai'c England, nothing about the dock workers' strike nt London, nothing about the strikes in tho Rriccvillc coal mines in Tonnosseo. In these cases tho troubles were natural convulsions, incident lo tho present social and wage system. Thoro was no political capital to bo mado out of them. Rut at Homestead tho case is different, at least thoy think it is. Tho froo trade command has been given to make all tho political capital possible out of the trouble at Honicsload. Uut the pcoplo aro beginning lo inquire how it is that an industry which is not protected at Conor d'Aleuo is afflicted with the same trouble, both in kind and degree Tho democrats A ill not try lo answer ihe question. They cannot. They do not care to do so. To show the falsity of tlio claims that strikes arc manifualntions of protection the Register will quote from a recent interview with Maj. S. (J. Iirook, chief of tho United States bureau of s'.ntislics, an eminent authority, especially when it is tonsidercd that his information is all from olli'dal sources. Mr. Urock points out the well known fact that wages in thin country among iron workers arc two times as high as among iron workers in England. This is undisputed. Naturally enough strikes arc fewer among workers receiving ri wages. Mr. Urock then took down the llrilish report on tho strikes and lockouts of 1890 presented to both houses by parliament, lie said: "This report was printed in 1891 in London. Hero is a largo volnmu of Hourly 400 pages, which is a very full and complete analysis of the stiikes and lockouts in the United Kingdom, France, Germany and the United Slates. From tliis report we learn that in 1890 there were in the United Kingdom 1,028 strikes, affecting 392,981 persons. In the United States during the same year thoro wero 927 strikes, affecting 219,915 persons; in Germany, \!> strikes, affecting 15,800 persons, and in Franoc, til strikes, affecting 98,700 persons. You will sco that there were a greater numuor of stiikes in tho United Kingdom than in tho United States, notwithstanding there is what is termed "free irado" in tho queen's domain, lint it should bo renmmberod that in 1890 tho population of tho United Kingdom was 87,404,951, whilo in the United States the population was G2,li'.'2,- 200, and that tho number of .strikes in proportion lo tho population of Great Britain was nearly double tho number in tho United States. Furthermore, thoso strikes mentioned in tho British report do not inelmle the nimiorous bread riots prevalent in Europe, but unknown in this country, resulting from tho frequent suffering of the peo plo for food. 11 appeals, as you will lind by figuring out tho proportion, that each strike in the United Kingdom affected on an average !I82 persons, while each strike in this country affected 287 persons, so that a much greater number of e«ploy- es were iuvoivuu in labor troubles in the Kingdom of Great llritaiii than in this republic. From this you will sco that strikes prevail to a greater extent and are more disastrous in Great Iirii- aiu than they aro hoie. Thoro is much less occasion for strikes in this country, because it is an undisputed fact that tho condition of tho working people in America is far superior to tho condition of thu laboring classes in the Unite . Kingdom. Only a little reflection is necessary to convince any one of this fact. As a rule tho working poople of iho United Stated own thvlr own homes, which is rarely the in any European country. We are told that in the city of Leeds, a great manufacturing conlor of England, with a population of over 200,000, not a workingman owns tho homo in which he lives; while nt Homestead over 00 per cent of tho mill workers have homes of their own- Such is largely tho case in all tho mnii- ufnuturlng towns of tho United States. Aguiu, what do tho statistics of our saviugs bank deposits show? In 1898 th<, deposits in the savings banks of tho United States wero $l,524,8ii,5»6, and 4,258,625 depositors. The nvonigo to each depositor $958.04. Thore are loss than one-fourth this number of doposit ors and ouo third iho number of aopos its in tlio United Kingdom. What about tho statement that the MelCiuloy tariff encouraged strikes and tucrqnsod thu profits of the own°rs of thoso iron and steel mills, but was oppressive to the workers? Such statements aro shoor nonsonso, as yon will readily soo when you understand that tho MoKinluy bill did not increase thu tariff on lciuliug manufactures of iron anil stool. For instance, on structural iron, such as beams, girders, otc, tho tariff under the recent tariff lw is niiio-toiiths of 1 cent per povlud; uudor tho old it was i.| cents per pound. Thoro is a reduction ou boiler or other plate iron or stool, also ou forgings of iron and steel and railway bars of iron or stool. Thoro is also a reduction on stool ingots, blooms, slabs, billots and bars. etc. ' THE much abused McKinley, of "bill" fame, speaks in Madison to-day, and il will be a big crowd that will listen lo hi in.
