CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION POSTPONED. Chairman Blytho, ot the fourth district republican committee, has issued the following notico: "The republican convention for the nomination of a representative in con- gross for tho fourth district has boon postponed by action of tho congressional committee, and will be held at Now Hampton, Iowa, Aug. 21, 18U2. Committeejien are requested to givo one notieo of this change, both to the public and to dslegates to tho convention if such delegates have boon chosen. JAS. E. BLVTUK, Cumn. of Congressional Committee. IN his speech at Madison, Wis., on Friday afternoon, of last weak, Gov. MoKiulay said among many other things, that no matter what party had control of tho government it would take $100,000,000 anmially to pay its running exponsos, and there were just two ways to raise this money. Ouo is by duties ou imports anil the other is by direct taxatiou. Tho people of this country have the option as to which way tlioy will raise it. If, as heretofore, wo continue to raise it by tariff duties it will not be fell by the people, as ovorybody mint now concede that tho tariff is not a tax only as to articles not produced in this country in Mifli- oient quantity to supply the demand, and even on such articles it is not a tax to the full amount of tho tariff. But if tho people decide that they want freo trade and direct taxation, then Iowa roufct bo prepared to raise its quota of this atuouut, which will not be loss than $20,000,000 annually, through the tax gatherer. Do you say that a dom- oeratio revenue tariff will raise this amount? It is absurd to make such a claim. In the iirst place, under their platform uo tariff must be lovied that will work protection. Hence it must bo taken off of everything that is or may be manufactured or produced in this country, olse it will work protection as well as revenue. And how much revenue might thus be raisedP Certainly not moro than one-half the amount roquirod. oven if sugar is put back on tho dutiable list. How is tho balance to be raised P By direct taxation, of courso. No party daro try such an experiment and no party expects to try it. It is the merrst dera- agogism. They don't even expeot to reform the present tariff to any extent if they should get into power, which is demonstrated by the present congress. Tho tariff is a good thing to talk about and to gull tho unsophisticated, but it is just about as well regulated now aa it can bo. SOLID PROPOSITIONS. SoMts of our good democratic brethren ohargo us with being down on laboring men. Wo refer them uot only to our own life record but to evory man or woman we ovor omployed. Wo should have had more to show for u half century of hard work had we paid less wnges for labor and exaoted more hours of service. No man has a gretter sympathy for labor than wo, lint we insist on laborers, like other ill a n, being honest and law abiding citizens. With these limitations we want to 4ee them get all thoy cau out ot their toil. A KRBB iradiu' who Is engaged fn the pearl button business at Nowurk, N. J., complains that the UclCiuley law is s bad thing for manufacturer* btoause it encourages so much aowpeiltion in America as to depress prices, while at the same time, it increases the demand tor labor and makos higher waged uec- 0*88817. If free traders were honest more complaint* of this kind would be heard. Tho Inter Ocean, in speaking of the great demand for MoKInley in tho campaign in all the northern slates says that it in not because of his overpowering eloquence, for this is not claimed for hiui, although he is a goud, solid convincing speaker, and carries with him the absolulo conviction that ho knows just what ho Is talking about when he discusses tho tariff question. The Inter Ocuau adds these solid facts: '•The bill which bears his name is not the result of his individual opinion, but the legislative expression of republicanism. It is no<* thirty-one yeprs since tho republican party camo iuto power, and although tho democrats have had somo successes thoy have had nothing whatever to do with niakiug or unmaking duties. We have had Morrison and Mills bills, and Cleveland has done a good deal of talking on the subject, but nut a line or section of laws relating to duties on imports emanated from the democracy. For a full generation that whole manor has been unjter tho absolute control of tho republican party. And the result may well he regarded with peculiar pride and | satisfaction. Figures show that there has been a declmo iu that time of very nearly 25 per cent. 'Tho tariff is a lax,' says tho democratic party, yet notwithstanding the billions of dollars collected as tariff exactions during the last thirty years Iho prices of tho necessaries arid comforts of life aro going down all the lime. What cost 8100 in 18(10 costs now only 87&.U1. These figures are not random estimates but exact figures. In other words, if wages of wagn earners and tho surplus products of tho farmer had gous down 25 per cent the money vocoived Would still be about the same, but as a matter of fact, wnges and tho prlco of farm products liavo gone lip still more than the cost of living has gono down. Tho work which brought in 8100 in 1860 is computed, on tho general averago, to bring in $161.GO now. In other words, between tho reduction in the cost of living and the increase in wages, the poor man's cash has improved fully 76 per cent tinder republican rulo. Thero is no escape from tho logic of this fact. It is too plain to be contro­ verted." In speaking of prices of commodities and labor the Inter Ocean lays down the following propositions, which are as solid as the walls of Gibraltar: "The democratic party voted out of its platform a resolution adopted by its committee «vhich recognized this difference between conditions abroad nnd here, and has set out to go through this campaign ignoring this difference. But the American whose business interests and whose daily employment are imporiled can not ignore a question so vital to thorn. What will prevent the factories of Europe, manned with labor paid but hall what labor receives in America, from taking complete possession of this market? This is not a political sally, it's n question of broad and butler nnd business. It never was so imminent as to-day. Europo never boforo was so close as quick transit and cheap freights make it to-day. It is simply idlo to assume that our ports nan bo oponod free to foroigu goods and our homo industries remain unaffected. The men who live and support their familios by thsso home industries will not make so foolish an assumption, nor will they ignore so vital a question. They know, bocauso it is an everyday proposition, '.hat in these times of Korea competition tho man who cannot produoo as cheaply as his rival must go out of business. Whether the rival is across the street or across tho sea the rule is tho samp. They know that uo man will begin a business in which nn established rival has an unquestioned advantage. Therefore, by tho common rules which control business, when tho tariff is removed and the American manufacturer oxposun to open competition with foreign rivals, he must either retiro from business, or labor, tho great constituent in all prices, must bo furnishod to him as cheaply as to his foreign rival." This is so palpable that it would seem that no man would have the hardihood to dispute it, and still you will hear men nrguo that because of greater efficacy Amoricau labor can compete with European labor at double the wages. Wo cheerfully concede that American labor is more proticent and efliuiaul in some lines than European labor. But what has made it sc is the higher wages paid and tho othor alvun- lages enjoyed hero that aro unknown across the sea. But it is not reasonable to suppose that any of these advantages will be continued wlion our labor is pluooil on a pur with that of Europo, and the doors are thrown open for the free introduction of nil foroign manufactures and products. The first thing that might be reasonably expected would bo that England would make a determined light for the trade of this country, and in the hope of breaking down our manufactures would givj prices that would compel the reduetion of wages hero the very first month, and inside of two years either one-hall our factories would bo closed or thoy would be run on the European scale of prices for labor. This is no idle dream, it is the legitimate conclusion, and tho only oue that can be ovolred from the situatiou. It is not a theory but a straight business proposition as demonstrative as any problem in mathematics. A SENSIBLE POSITION. TIIE last issue of tho Gate City, Sam Clark's papor, published Just befoie the adjournment of congress, had these truthful remarks, which we commend to Iho voters of Iowa; "This democratic congress has made up its mind to adjourn and go home. It is almost impossible to keep a quorum. Now we appeal to auy tair minded democrat whether that congress after all this long session has done or attempted to do any pavt of the groat promises made by those democratic candidates for congress and their party supporters when they ran for congress two years ngoP Have those oongreeti- men done a tiling that was worth while from the democratic standpoint? Have they reformed anything or retrenched anything, saved any money to the taxpayers, adopted a measuro of any sort that any democrat can think of ornamo that is worth whlleP The faot Is, tho whole campaign on which tho democratic members of the house ran for 1 their membership in (but body was a • colossal Ho, Thero w»« nw truth in [ their claim* and pretenses, from begin- I nine tn »>J » -•• • The following manly letter from J. G. Hutchison, once the republican candidate for governor of Iowa, has the right ring to it, and will place him far higher iu lliu estimation of all true republicans thnn he ever was before. The letter was written as a privato one to Hon. J. A. Lyons, auditor of state: Orrt.-MWA, July 21. "DEAII CAI'TAIN:—1 WHS n consistent candidate for governor, shirking no duty imposed 011 me by my party iu its platform. 1 am still consistent, I vicld to no living man as a true and faithful republican. I am a true friend of the causo of prohibition in Iowa, and yet I can not see why nil true republicans can not voto and talk and use their Influence for all republicans whoso names are or will be on tho republican ticket in Iowa this fall, from the presidential ticket down to our county tickets inclusive. I regret exceedingly that any portion of tho temporaiico alliance" in Iowa should their influoucu to he used against the republican party. I never have yet seon a party since 1864 fitted by ability, patriotism, integrity or intelligence to tako the placo 01 tho republican party. Differ as wu may, honestly differ ou state issues, yot, when wo como to the great underlying principles which are the ground work of the integrity of our nation, its enlightenment, its progress in civilization, its general prosperity, no republican in Iowa, wliethor ho believes in prohibition or high license, can afford to scratch the republican tlckot this fall. My opinion is that, if lie ddeSi ho cannot be classed with tho trild republicanism, which is big enough, broad enough, honest enough and strong t enough to take in our nation. I see that some persons aro attacking Mr. A. B. Cummins, and alleging that ho did uot vote for me, that he has not been voting nor working for our party for four years. 1 have nevor stopped to connider whether Mr. Cummins voted for mo or not. I havo always believetl he did. As 1 was a republican, and as Mr. Cummins profess«d to be, excepting only that he was opposed to prohibition, as ho was a fiiond, too, I hnd always bolloyed ho votod for ma. But whether ho did or not, I cannot, nor can any truo republican afford to scratch the name of Mr. Cummins ou the national lickot, it that would, even by a hair's breadth, endanger tho election of Harrison and Keld. Let us hope that honest Iowa republicans will attend to ouo thing at 11 time. This year wo can do harm, great harm, if wo do not all solidly stand by the republican ticket, state anil national. Besides, prohibition is in 110 particular whatever affected by tho electiou in Iowa this fall. Noxt yoar is another season and time to shape public poll ciss of and for our stato. I can seo no rensou whatever why any discussion should bo carried iuto tho republican ranks this fall by looking beyond or backward for issues special to Iowa olichs. These aro briefly my views F moro doubtless might be said. Yours sincerely, J. G. HDTCIHHSON. have said enough, although much INTO THE OPEN GRAVE GOES. HE "I havo frequent misgivings as to the wisdom of again putting mo in nomination."—Grover Clevnlaud. "1 tell you fraukly thoro is not a thinking democrat iu Chicago to-night who doesn't fully realize that Mr. Cleveland cannot be elected president of the United States this year. 1 '—Calvin S. Brioe. "Nominate Mr. Cleveland and we march through a slaughter house into an open grave."—Henry Wattorson. "Cleveland will bo defeated by 10,000 in Indiana." - Isaac Pusey Gray. •'Mr. Cleveland cannot carry ouo side of New York."—Governor Flower. •'Harmon is a stronger man than he was four years ago—whether or not Cleveland is, I am not informed." - Horaee Boies. ' Noitlmr Cleveland nor Hill can be elected."—leuntor Vest. "Tho democratic party cannot carry New York with Clovelund."— Riobard Croker. "Cleveland cannoi carry Now York, and that anybody who says to tho contrary is actuated by prejudiced motives."—Frank Kioo, secretary of state, Now York. "Cleveland cannot carry Virginia. Maryland nor South Carolina, and I know what I am talking about,"—Governor Tillman, South Carolina. "Tho foeling is growing very bitter in New York state toward Mr. Cleveland, and we sincerely trust that tho domooraoy of other states will not humiliate tho democracy of the state of New York by nominating a resident of the state who tho organizations nre posilivo could not bo elected."— Edward J. Murphy, Jr., chairman Now York democratic committee. '"Harrison defeated Cleveland four years ago. He is no weukor now than ho was then. He is stronger. Ho has glvou his party o wry thing it wanted. He lias mado one of tho best presidents that tho republican party has given us."—Lieutenant Governor Sbeehan, New York. "It Is not seriously olRlmeol In any quarter that Mr. Cleyeland can carry New York. Only madmen will pro- foss that the democratic party can elect a president next November without N«\v York. That is tho situation in absolute simplicity."- Chicago Herald (Dom). TIIE Cedar Rapids Gazotte asks why it is that England has ten times ns many millionaire manufacturers ns Amevioa. Tho auswor is e^sy enough. Amoricau manufacturers pay their employes double the wages that are paid in England. This was lately shown in the Timos whoro tho wages of iron and steal workoiv were put In tabular form, America on olio side, England on the othor. But it is llio Iirst time wo h<u'o seen a domooratio paper acknowledge that thoro wero ton timos as many millionaires among the English factory ownors than among the American. Those journals have beon assorting that our manufacturers were robbing tholr employe* aud the people while those in freo tradn oountrles were not. OoottHionally and unwittingly thoy let fall a chunk of truth as does tho Gazette m making the nbovo admission. • Dubuque Times. BROAD TERES VERSUS ROAD TAXE8. TUB democratic tin plate liar is a liar Who will not down. You may ohnso down his lies and stamp thorn into tho earth but they will be rcausitutod and started out ngaiu on their" travels. Time and again it has been shown th it the output of tin ore is steadily Increasing, the uuinber of fuotarios multiplying, the product ouo of superior quality, tho cost as low us the English gooes and that In every respect the industry is as prosperous and growing as can bo expooud of any new industry. All title Iho daiuooratin tin " (Sterling Klli&t In Good KoacU.] There ato differences enough between n horse and a wagon so Una even a poor observer ought never to mistake one for the other. One of the most : obvious differences is that 11 wagon is capable of its best work only when thoroughly tired, which can hardly Us said of the horse, and it has also liven noticed that the horso gets mote tired as the wagon isn't. While resting my bones iu thu Michigan gras* last summer. I had a pleasant opportunity of listening to, and verifying, the talk of a well informed, practical, and consequently well-to-do farmer. I noticed that iho woodon wheels of his wagon had very broad tires (and by the way, I couldn't help noticing how well wooil seems to answer for the wheels of farm wugons). I asked a great many questions about the broad tires, and this is what I found out: It seems that the Michigan law makers have hnd their windows open so thnt the new light has begun to shine ou them. Tho value of broad wheel tires bein" apparent, and nof wishing to put the farmer to compulsory expense, they have mado n law, the drift of which is that the man who will use on his wagon tires of a certain width shall haro a rebate In his road tax of one-half. Aud this is how it works. In buying a now wagon tho diffvrenuo iu cost is slight, ns tho wider tires may bo much thinner, and the ndded strength in tho woodon rim makes a strougcr wheel. To tako from a wagon already in use thu narrow rims nuulirc* nnd repiaco them with wider ones, costs between $12 mid $10, and iu tho case of tko farmer to whom I refer, tho direct saving in road tax AT ONCE was better than 25 por cent on tho cost of making the alteration. To a man who was loaning his surplus monoy at six or seven por cent, the broad tires looked like a good investment, ovon if there was no other advantage. But the other advantages were much greater. He showed me that in the cornfiuld thirty bushels had been a good loud with narrow tires, and hu could now haul fifty bushels with grontor oaio. When it came to hauling stuff to market tho load could, with wido tires, bo increased from twenty-livo to fifty por cent. This much from the farmer's standpoint. How about the commonwealth? It has been discovered that, in localities whero a considerable portion of tho inhabitants use the broad tires, the decreased tax keeps the road in better condition than tho wholo tax did whon the niriow tires prevailed, and it is belioved by men who are in a position to know that when broad tires are uni- vorsally used, tho highways (all kinds, from the city pavement to the pool est dirt road), may bo kept in bettor condition than nt present with one-fourth tho present cost. * Tho greatest improyomont for the loast outlay is what tho present geuor- aliou is most likely to rcalixe on> unit while I thoroughly believe in all the good work now being tlono to the roads, I bolicvo that no road will over bo built that cau stand narrow tires under heavy loads, aud to improve tho road first is beginning at tho wrong end of it. Legislation looking toward the forced general adoption of wheel treads proportioned to tho maximum load to bo carried is tho thing to bo Iirst pushed. Such a law mado universal would greatly improve presout roads, and ns fast as roads woro mado better, would tend to kcop them so. If you woro putting down a now parlor oarpot you wouldn't let the boys cou- tini'o to walk on it with hob-ualled shoes, would yotiP If you did, tho car- pot appropriations would begin to run short aud you would havo to appeal to tho legislature for aid. Thero is just one valid objection to wide tires, and that is, that such a wagon runs hard oyer a road which is mostly used by the old kind of tiros, but when all wheels aro what thoy should bu thoro will bo no ruts (at least not in tho road), and tho faco of tho farmer may yet be shortoned so that he can got shaved at tho regular price. I huyo often heard teamsters say thoy would bo glad to uso broad tires if every 0110 elso was compollcd to do so. This is the key to tho situation. Make wrong-doing in this direetion illegal, at the same time show to tho wagon owner why it is directly profitable to him to comply with the law. Did you ovor notice how willingly a man becomes a law-abiding citizen whon ho can make monoy by itP Tho money now oxpended for roads would como very noar making thorn good roads if it woro not for constant abuse inflicted by nnrrow tiros. But I do not bolievo it possiblo to over raiso monoy enough 10 keep the roads Whero thoy should bu until the tiro question is settled by law, and any such law whioh would tako effect two (or oven ono) yours after its passage could not be a hardship to anybody. ADDITIONAL LOOAL. A HUSBAND'S THOUGHTFULNESS. [Slam Regiiter.) Some one has pried Into the contents of tho will of Mr. Potter Palmur, the husband of tho woman who is distinguishing horsolf as the "lady president" of tho World's Fair. AtUJiig the items snugly couched away in that document is one of 8100,000 for the "second" husband of Mrs. Palmer. That is, if after Mr. Palmer is doad, Mrs. Palmer should marry again, tho lucky man not only gots the widow for his pains, but a hundred thousand dollars in his own name. Mrs. Palmer is not only taluntod, bnt beautiful and many years younger than her wealthy husband, and naturally the chances of her setond raarrlago aro extremely good. Mr. Palmer scorns to have taken these faots into consideration and is not only willing that Mrs. Palmer should marry again, but provides handsomely for the "future" man so that ho may be fitted, so far us wealth goes, for tho place, aud independent. Suoh magnanimity in the husband of a beautiful woman is unparalleled. Mr. Pa 1111 or may rest assured tha; his generosity will bo duly appreciated by tho Irian who comes after him.

It is a dwarf variety of the osier, is perennial, attains usually a height of three feet sir inches, and bns a head of yellow flow ere.

The pooullar propensity of the foliage of this plant is attributed to tho fact that both surfaces of its leaves display •ai equal receptivity for light.
