CONGRESSIONAL CONVENTION POSTPONED* Chairman Blytho, ot tho fourth district ropublieau coiumitteo, has issued tho following notice: "Tho republican convention for the nomination of a representative in congress for tho fourth district has boen postponed by nelion of the congressional committee, and will be held at New Hampton, Iowa, Aug. 2i. 1892. Committee .neu aro requested to give one notico of this change, both to tho public and to delegates to the convention >f such delegates have been chosen. . JAS. E. BLYTUE, Chmn. of Congressional Committeo. THE only mention we have seen of Blaine for nearly two menths is that he will take the stump in Maini. It is "wonderful how soon a public man, lhowover groat, is lost sight of when ho Tetires to private life. But Blainojwill be heard from again if his life is spared. SEHATOK ALLISON will onter tho main campaign and remain in tho east through September whan he will return to Iowa i»nd mako it warm for democratic policies in this state. Our senior senator is a power wherever ho f»oes, as his reputation is eo-»xtensivo with tho United States. DENVEII and the Rocky mountains have boon full of people to overflowing this woek. Wc thought wo would have liked to have takou this trip but we have changed our mind. Such jams «nd crushes have no attractions for us, especially when tho morcury lingers lovingly around the 100 mark. Wo can see neither rest or comfort (a such a crowd. CHAIHMAN BLTTHE has gone east to confer with tho members of tho national committed. Mr. Illy tho has taken hold of the work in earnest and is cotu- ploliug arrangements for one of the best campaigns in Iowa republicanism. While east ha will attempt to make arrangemeuts to havo Maj. MoKinley speak in Des Moines at un early data. From DesMoincg the inlluenco of his speech would radiate to every part of tho state. TaB republican candidates for congress (and nono of these aro avowed candidates unless it be Mr. UpdegraQ') havo narrowed down to tliroo: Hon. S. B. Zeiglcr and Hon. W. E. Fuller, of Fayette, and Hon. T. Updegraff, of Clayton. It looks as if one of these three would be tho standard bearer. If we wore a delogate we should favor Zoiglor first and Updegraff second. But as we are not wo ate willing to allow the dt-legalion to do tho best Ihoy oan and then we do tho best wo can for the nomiuee. On Fridfty hist congress finally wound up il» loug drawn out sossion and went home, to the gratification of everybody. Not even the domocrats claim that anything has been accomplished in tho eight months of wrangling except the passago of the necei- sary appropriation bills, and theBB went through with great travail of soul, especially tho half loaf given grudgingly to the world's fair. The oxcusos of tho democratic press for tho do-nothing congress are ludicrous in tho oxtroiue. Tho St. Paul Globo says it was handicapped and made powerless by the republican son- ato and president. Did these facts debar it from taking a stand for and passing Btich measures as aro demanded by tho democratic pnrty—measures that they guaranteed should receive their earnest attention? Is a miuority n one houso of cougrcss an oxcuso for doing nothing in the other houso? Two yearn ago the country gave tho democracy an Unprecedented majority in tho house on the one issue of opposition to tho McKinley bill, and on the promise that if given a majority that body would proceed al once to wipu out this greatest iniquity of modem times. When the party mado theae ptedgos it ;knew just as well as it knows now that it did not have oither tho president or senate, and hence could not accomplish any tariff legislation. But it could do just what it promised to do, it could ropeal tho McKinley tariff law in the house and substitute a now tariff in harmony with do moeratic ideas, and tliuti go to the country on tho issuo as thus mudo, as the republicans did two yeavs ago. This would havo boen honest and consistent. No other courio wae eithor. But as usual the party chose tho vas- dilating, demagogic course, and ploads the baby act of not having a majority in both houses and tho president. Perhaps the country will indorse such tactics and then again perhaps it will not. . If tho parly has not the courage of its convictions at all timos and under all circumstances what assurance can it give the peoplo that it would enact those supposed convictions into law if it had tho power? If a minority party has no responsibility and nothing to contoud for why does it make pnrty nominations in states and districts whom it is a minority party? It has alwayi, perhaps erroneously, been supposed that it was tho duty of a minority party to stand by and pro moto its principles as steadfastly as the majority parly. ETCU tho old greenback and prohibition parlies have always done this in sunshine and in storm. Again, two years ago, overy democratic stump was decorated with groans for the billion dollar congress, and the plea was put forth that if the democraey was given a majority in the house, where all finance bills originate, »U this would bo radically changed and an era of retrenchment and reform would bo inaugurated. Now tho first session of this economical congress has closod .md behold tho appropriations exceed those of the same session of tee reptib lieau congress of which complaint was made, by millions of dollars, and still many necessary appropriations were refused which will have to be made up at the next session, after oleetion, you kuow! Thou ihe othor two and a half millions for tho worlj's fair will be appropriated, aud tho necessary amounts for public buildings, which were cut off without a dollar at this sossion. In all candor and fairness we ask the people if they aro not tired of this dem­ agog 1 '}'? '-This is »groal country aud is rapidly advancing in population and wealth, and the demands of the Irons ury aro iucro.-uiug with overy passing year, aud most continue to inoroase with tho development of tho country, no matter what party is in powor, With the tariff as now adjusted this increase can bo mot with no hardship to any one, but in no other way. The fact that tho late congress made no offort to change it is cvidonco that it is the farthest from its intention to do so, All the 'bluster about free trado and tariff reform is simply to eatch tho unsophisticated vote. Tho MoKinloy tariff will not bo repealed, and no par ty wants it repealed. It may bo some what modified as time aud exporlenoo shall dictate, but as a whole it will stand for many years to come, even if tho erazy peoples' party should sue ceed to powor. Oates' opinion, win too stern, brusque and somewhat autocratic. Oates is persuaded that if Frio.k had appealed to the reason of the employes aud shown them the state of the company's affairs the reduction might hayo been made and no trowblo would havo followed. Sheriff McCleary, ho asserts, was very inefficient, but had Frick aided him and joined in IIH appeal to the governor instead of employing Pinkertons the state wruld havo furnished a sufficient force to have protected the property. Tho Pennsylvania law contains nothing to prevent Frick from employing Pinkcrtous as watchmen at Homestead, but Oates condemns their employment under the circumstances. The company did not appeal to tho cornty or slate authorities in the first iustnnco for protection. The report says that tho Pir.kortons who surrendered wore brutally and outrageously troated, principally by womou and boys, and Oates is loath to believe that any of these worn on are native Americans. He says that the iudignitiea to which they wore subjected wore a disgraco to civilization. Oates condemns as unlawful the acts of tho workmen in turning away the sheriff and in hanging in effigy Frick and Potter. Ho says it was the purpose of tho Amalgamated association to prevent the employment of non-union men, and ho declaros that no organization has a right to enforce iln wishes by force ana dolianco of law. The men had no legal right to resist tho coming of the Pinkertons and are answerable to the Pennsylvania courts. In conclusion Oates finds that congress has no power over the questions involved. Tho enactment of a satis factory arbitration law is well nigl impossible. As to whether congress has the powor to rogulate or suppress Pinkertonism Oates says ho has no conclusion to ox press until tho completion of the investigation next session." HOW TO VOTE UNDER THE NEW BALLOT LAW. THE CONGRESSIONAL REPORT "SENATOM Johu G. Carlisle, of Kentucky, and Ishaiu G. Harris, of Tennesson— two of tho loading democrats in congress havo subscriooil to the findings of tho special sonata committee on prices and wages, which wore that since the McKinley bill became a law wages in tho United States have advanced and prices have declined. Up to date none of the free trado Cieve- landitos—other thin Mr. Carlisle and Mr. Harris—have ever alluded to the improved condition ot American wage- workers by vlrtuo of the McKinley law."--Albany Journal. On the other hand every democratic paper, from the Louisville Courier- Journal down, continues to characterize the McKinley bill as "the robber tariff." Wo like to seo a newspaper champion Its party whou it can do so consistently, but when the evidonoe is all In, as In this case, ana there is not a shred of Ihis evidence to bolster up those actuations, and overy particle of testimony on tho other aide, it would seem to us the part of wisdom either to admit the facts or say nothing about it. Congressman Oatos, chairman of tho democratic investigation committee that wont to Homestead to determine if possible tho cause and euro of the striko, roported to the house, but that domooratio body suppressed tho repor until nf'ev election, doubtless on the ground that it would prove too much for that parly and injure its prospocts in tho campaign. This is evident from tho oxtraois from the report j,iveu in tho democratic Dubuque Telegraph of Monday. It will bo soen that every position ot the democratic pross has been knocked out by this domooratio committee. Hore is the extract: "WAsniKOTON, Aug. 8.—Oates report on the Homestead trouble, which was suppressed by tbo full com' itiuoo on tho ground that it did not cover all tho grounds of tho inveniga tion, says that had Frluk stated the hot- torn foots (tho cost of making a IJII of billets) to the committee they would havo agreed that the proposition to reduce wages was justifiable; but they took issue wlttt Fnok in his conclusions that the tariff did not cause a decline in prices. Oator finds further that the conduol of the company towards li* THE OAXJSE OF IT. Tho people have been at n loss to know why tho prices of hogs and pork products havo so steadily ndvaueed for some time, with no ovidenco of woak ness in the market. Of lato hogs have brought a dollar a hundred more than for a long time in tho past. Tho cause is just beginning to dawn on the poo pie. Already the fanners have pock eted millions of dollars by tho riio, and tho ond is not yet. The last Burlington HrvwKoyu explains tho situation and it must and will have a groat bearing on tho present campaign. It says The Clovolaud, Ohio, Leader speaks of the agrucablo surprise tho farmors of the country will experience this fall and wintor when Ihoy recoive from one third to threo-fourths of a cent a pound more than last year for the hogs they may bring to market. Tins moans a handsome increase in the sum total of the tanners' revenues for tin yoar, amounting to at least $25,000,000 on the annual pork product, is moro than enough to pay the interest on th whole interest-bearing debt of the nation, and Iowa being one of the largest pork produciug states, if not the very largost, will got quite a respectable share of this largo sum. Tho credit of tho increased price of pork belongs to tho ropubllcan party and this administration. It is th direct and distinct fruitage of tho ear nest efforts that havo been made by Presidont Harrison, his advisers and his party to promote tho welfaro of tho agricultural olassos. This work was begun when tho presidont choso Goy ernor Ruik as secretary for tho depart mout of agriculture. By that appoint mont a thorough service and abli friond of tho farming interests was giv en tho immediate direction of all worl and investigation planned in Ihoi. behalf. The agricultural department bsenme, in fact, as iu namo, a strict and faithful promoter of such measures as would wisely advaoco the welfare of the farmers of the nation, and its work is already manifested in many other bonolits besidos tho advauco ' the prico of pork. The higher prices for hogs aro moro particularly due to tho meat inspection law passed by the last republican con gress. This measure was warmly championed ry President Harrison an " his cabinot, aud was passed by repul liuan votes. The opposition to it i congress was led by domocrats, and that parly could have had its way, tho law would not have been enacted. Some of the bourbons thought it was unconstitutional and tried to kill it because they alleged it would coBt something and place some additional patronage in the hands of tho prosi dent. It passed despito tjeir factions opposition, and by means of it and tin reciprocity clause of tho McKinley bill. American pork has been admittod witli special advantages into Germany, Franoo, Austro-Hungary, Denmark and other European countries. The mar kets of mora than 100,000,000 of people, which wore closod by prejudice against American pork, have boen opened by tho government inspootiou and guarau lee under this law. The rosult is a steady increase iu tho foreigu demand for American pork, t growing foreign trade iu it and advauo ing prices, liolweou September, 1891, and April, 1892, over 80,000,000 pounds of inspoclod pork wore exported, the inspected article commanding about one cent a pound more than the uniu spectod. The effeut of this has been to advanco the price of hogs killed, am to give the farmors much tho largei part of tho increase. A better exam pie of what wise legislation and able Ntalesmanshlp can do to promote tho interests of agriculture eould not be askod. This one moasure, not to mon- tiou the reciprocity treaties with S"iHh Amorloan countrlos, tho benefits ot bel­ ter protection to farm preducts in our owu markets, and other minor results of republican legislation and statos mauship will bo of moro value to th farmers of the United States than that was dono during the four yours of Grover Cleveland's administration or all that he now proposes to do if agai elected president. The demooralic party has theorized and talked impraoiicable things. Thi republican administration has gone ahead with a clour idea ot what was needed and how to accomplish it, mid produced most important and valuable results. That is the reason why It will not bo a difficult matter for tho farm era of the United States to choose betweon the two in November." Wo tlnd the following plain directions for voting under the new ballot law in a late issue of the State Register. Tho first eleotion under tho law going to bo a perplexing affair, and will subj-ct the board to great annoyance at best, and il is probable that a great many mistakes will be made and many votes will not be counted for lack of being properly marked. For this reason it is tho duty of overy newspaper to give all tho information possible, to the end that these mistakes be reduced to tho minimum: Give your name, and if required, your residence, to the judgos of election. If your name is on tho rogister, you will bo permitted to enter tho enclosed space iusidc the guard rail. If your vote is not challonged, cno of tho judges, aftor endorsing his initials on tho back thereof, will hand you a ballot. If your namo is not on tho register, or your voto is challenged, yon will not | roceivo a ballot until you havo established your right to voto. When yon liave received tho ballot, retire at onco, alone into one of the voting booths, unfold your ballot and prepare it for the ballot box by properly marking il as hereinafter explained. You will find printod on tho ballot, in columns, side by side, all the candidates of nil tho parlies to bo voted for at the election. At tho lop of each column you will find the name of each party 'ticket' or list ot candidates, as 'Republican,' Democratic' 'Prohibition,' etc. Placed bofore or to tho left of each of these headings you will note a circle } inch in diamoter. If you want to vote tho 'straight' party ticket, you will select the party of your choice and mark a cross in tho clrclo, and do not mark your ballot at any othor place or in any othor way. Your ballot, so marked, will bo counted for all the candidates nominated by your party. Opposite, or to tho left of each namo on tho ballot, you will find a square. If you do not want to voto for all tho candidates of any party, 'straight,' place a cross in thu square opposite tho name of tho candidate of vour clioico. but do not mark a cross in tho circlo opposite tho name of tho parly, and your bnllol will be counted only for the names marked. Or you can write in tho namo of the candidate of your ehoico in tho blank space on tho ticket, make a cross opposite thereto. If you want to voto for the candidates of a party, with somo exceptions, make a cross mark in the circle opposite the party name, aud IIIOH make u cross mark in the square opposite tho namo of auy candidate of another party, and your "ballot will bo eounted for the can didales marked, excopt as to tho candl dates marked under another party title aud theao will be counted for tho candidates marked. In voting upon any proposition submitted to vote and pt illicit on tho ballot, make a crosB mark in the column opposite tho headings 'Yes' or 'Not and your ballot will bo countod 'for,' if you mark opposite 'Yes' and 'against, if you mark opposite 'No.' Do not mark your ballot In any other way except as Indicated above. Bofore leaving tho votiug booth, fold your ballot so as to conceal the marks, and expose tho official endorsomont on the back. Loavo tho booth aud hand vour bal lot to the judge in chargo of tho ballot box, who, without marking it in anyway, must deposit in the box. You will not be allowed to occupy a voting booth with another voter. You will not bo allowed to occupy a booth moro than live minutos if others are wailing to voto. You will not bo nllowod to remain in tho inclosed spaco more than ten minutes, ami you must quit it as soou as you have voted. You will not bo allowed to re-enter the enclosed space, after you have voted, during; the election. You will not be allowed to vote any ballot except the ono you roceivo from the judges You will not bo allowed to take ballot from the polling place bofore the close of the election. If you spoil a ballot in preparing it you must return it aud gut auother in tho plaoo of it. Any voter who, after receiving an official ballot, decides not to vote, shall, bofore retiring from within the guard rail, surrender to tho election officers the official ballot which has been given him; and a refusal to surrender such ballot shall subject tho person so offending to immediate arrest. If you will declare upon oath that you cannot read the English language, or that by reason ol physical disability you are unable to mark your ballot, upou request, you will be assisted by two officers, appointed for that purpose of opposite political parlies. Tho officers will mark your ballot as you direct. Intoxication will not bo regarded as a physical disability, and if you are intoxicated you will recoivo no assistance in marking your ballot. Between tho hours of opening and closing the polls you are entitled to absent yourself from your plaoo of employment for tho period of two hours for tho purpose of votiug. You will not be liublo to any penalty for your absenco, nor shall any deduction bo mudo from your wagos or salary on that account; but you must ask for leave of absence before tho day of election, and your employer may specify the hours during which you may bo sent. Couuting all those factors shbw- ' cd that the average cost of raising an acre of corn in Wobraska, including wages for every ono who in any way j contributed to tt, and seed, taxes', interest, etc., as above, was $(j.i3. The bureau in estimating tho worth per acre adopted the agricultural department estimate of 32.8 bushels per aere and at iho average yield the crop of llic average acre was worth $7.58 at tho nearest station. The amount it cost to haul tho crop to tho market must bo deducted from this latter amount, and thou tho difference bvlwceu this remainder and $G i\i represents the net profit per acre to tho Nobraska farmer on that small portion of the corn crop which is sold as grain. But according to the actual figures gathered by the national census office tho avorago yield per acre as givou by the agricultural bureau is too low. Tho census enumerators visited every farmer in tin; state and gathered not an estimate, but tho exact amount raised nnd the number of acres planted. The quotient for the whole state of Nebraska showed an average yiold for tho year 1889 - tho year of investigation, and a bad corn year- of 39.40 bushels per acre. This at 28 cents per bushel would moau a valuo of the crop at tho railroad station of 88.U6. The cost of raising, according '.a tba ettituate of tho farmers themselves, is 86.43. Tho not profit, then, would ho $2.53 per acre, loss tho cost of hauling from tho farm.

Leighton, tho buttcimakcr at Ames, writes to Creamery nnd Dairy upon the above subject. Ho says considerable complaint is mado by commission men that butter is soft aud slnshy and lacking in tho firmness peculiar to cold weather. Ho has been trying to find out the reason and thinks the condition of tho grass eaten is ono canso. but mainly that it iB duo to separating at too high a tomporaluro. Wo copy as follows: '•Tho milk is delivered at tho creamery here at about 70 to 75 deg. Fall, these hot summer mornings, although every precaution is taken to keop it cool while in transportation. It is then soparatcd at that temperature and of course the violent agitation of the milk while in tho separator has a tendency to break tho fat globules and make the butter soft and spongv. Although the croam may bo cooled down to 60 deg. immediately after separating and churned at 52 or 54 deg., il seems to make no difference in the quality of the butter. In an experi.vent with the Coolcy svstem milk was taken from the weigli can that had bojn hauled seven miles and stood at 72 deg. It was set. in cold water and the croam raised and churned at a temperature of 6-1 dog. There was n^ trouble with tho buUov not being linn and solid. It had the appearance of butter made in winter. This of itself goes to show that, tho trouble is in the separator. And now comas a question, 'How nre you going to remedy it?' And I can see only ono way and that is by devising some moans to cool all tlie milk down to 00 deg. bofore separating and I think it can bo done without much expense. But soma ono will ask, 'What about the loss of butter fat in the skim milk, caused by separating il at so low a temperature?' -Will not the loss thai way be more than the gain in the quality of the butler?' Thoro will bu no loss in tho skim milk if tho right kind of separators aro used. We have machines hero that will separate eighteen hundred pounds of milk per hour at a temperature of 58 deg. and not leavo a trace of fat in the skim milk. It has got to come to this and the time is not far distant when milk will have to bo cooled down to (!0 dog. before separating m order to butter Ihe quality of butter in hot weather, ami crcamorymon will have to buy a machine thai will do complete work at thai temperature. The separator system has been a great thing for flic dairymen of Iowa, aud has raised the price of butler from two to three cunts per pound over tho gathered cream plan, bul there is plenty of room for improvement yet, not only in the machines bul in Iho methods of handling tho milk, cream ami butter."
