W K have been wuitiug patiently evor since tho Chicago convention to sen iu gouic democratic paper an explanation as to what particular Clevoland is stronger now than iu 18.SS, or ifarrivou weaker, but wc havo waited in vain. Nobody can tell. lie was set usida than by his own state by uearly 16,«00 plurality. He was downed in Indiana when thera was an Indiana man on fur socond place, and now ho poses as a defeated candidate, while Harmon has the prestige of suoesss, besides having tho administration bihiud him. G'hivs- land is oartainly weaker than h« was four years ago, while Harrison is just us certaiuly stronger. "T HE republican senate, did all it could lo keep up extravagant expenditures and prevent retrenchment, yet tho republican press is tolling ils gullible readers that 'tho democratic congress' has been as wasteful as the 'spiihlii'itn looturs who preceded it." — Connor -Journal. Is not our great democratic luminary a little lame in the above extract? In the lirst pluse the ropublicans in congress or out are not posing as live cent men. They recognize the fact that this is a great oountry-and it takes money to run it creditably. They are willing that the surviving soldiers who saved tho nation should he adequately pensioned and that all other legitimate expenses of the government should he honestly met. Ilesides, us our brother Wnttursou well knows, all tlnauoial legislation must originals in the house, and heu«u tho sonaio is not responsible for this class of legislation, II is tho dumooi'ivU who cry extravagance, and their arm of congress is the one to iunngiirniu economy. That parly u «n make no point on the score of etouo- my. Nyvr thai the conventions arc nil hold it i* probable that the polities will soon begin to warm up. Spanking appointments will soon be in order. T HE chairman of the republican slate convention held iu Milwaukee lost wock. said, in his speech: "Harrison has made 100, but not ouu mistake', Cleveland has made 100 mistakes, but not one speech." I T Is a noticeable (act thai not a man on tho democratic state ticket has any state wide reputation or apijimiiilnni;e. In (net few of the candidates are known outside of the counties in wliloli they reside, Thin is eortainly true of both I ho iimididatau in this congreattlott»l ftlstrlot, They'may be jmt as good n\ou for all lit at but It la evident that the convention had no hope of eleeilng the tioket w it would h»va nominated representative ni»n who were prominent in the os»nnoila of the party, The politicians would navtir havo allowed ail the plums to gn to tlm "nnuk dts- tfiuls" had there bean Any liuna of tittti- <*<>*. H MWSW tlm ehanooa may he ailtar y«ar» thera i» »o hup'n of miopesa infuwaon nreildtntlal veara «>.H i W AS it uot a little strange thai Fay- otle county refused to instruct its delegation for Congressman Butler? So (nr ns wa know the omission is unprecedented and must moan that Walt isu't very solid at home. It looks like another Clereluud aud Hill CASH—that is evorybody wauls him except his home county, but they dou'l want him very badly. Tho fact is if the democracy had thought there was a ghost of a show of his elootion two years ago he would not have had * rote iu that convention. He was put up theu simply as a figure head to bo knocked down, aud tho prominent deiuoeiRts have been silting up nights kicking them- solvcs OVBI since for nominating him then. Had there bemi a possibility of shaking him now thoy would have been only too glad to have done it, but this was impossible. T HE democratic press is quoting Holmnu to prove that the late sessiou of tho 62ud congress tras Ices extravagant than the lirst. sessiou of the 51st congress. Nobody will quest-ion Sona- tor Allison on '.he finances, aud he says that the late session appropriated many millions more than ils republican predecessor did, aud iu thv speeches he will soon make he will prove it so clear that a child cau understand it. liy tho way our democratic friwnds are as dumb as oysters of late ou "the billion dollar congress." Kuad the opinion of Tom Watsou, the allinuee oou- grcssiunu from Georgia, aud you get at the meat iu the coacoauut: "Fledged la reform, they have not reformed. Fledged to economy, they have uot cciuomfzed. Flodged to l*g- islal*, they have not legislated. Kxlravagauce has been the order of the day. Absenteeism was never so pronounced. Lack of purpose was never so clear. Lack of common business prudeuce never more glariug. Useless employees crowd every corridor Useless expenditures pervade every department." I T is queer what hard holes our democratic 1'neuds are continually getting iuto. When thy recent strikes were inaugurated every democratic paper it 1 the laud rushed to the froul aud with oue voice cried, "The result of the MeKinW bill!" But they were soon called off by the wiser leaders, aud uow they are shouting that they never said it, thai it is all a republican lie, elc. But once iu a while there is a democratic organ honest euough to lell ihc truth, especially when it is forced ou them by so good authority as the democratic suite convention. The platform rcceutly adopted at Davenport tonkas the same assertions as to the cause of strikes that the entire press of that parly made at the time of the Homestead strike. Ju commenting upon this plauk of tue platform the democratic Dubuq"ue Telegraph says: •'its most serious faalt is contained iu the UriU plauk which charges the protective policy of the republican party with responsibility for the strikes which have become so lamentably frequent iu this country. In this matter the convention went to extremes. Strikes oecur iu free trade Kngland as well as iu this couatry and the discontent iu which they have their origin is i duo to cluss legislation of various kinds. The tariff is one form of class legislation and in this country it has aggravated the evil of strikes. If the convention had said this it would have taken a position entirely tenable. As it is the platform declaration will be challenged successfully and the cause of tariff reform thus injured. Tl»is is a cause so meritorious that it is to he regretted the state convention placed a weapon In the hands of Its enemy." Will not the democratic filends give us a rest on the attitude of their party ou the strike question? Their state platform charges everything to the McKinhiy bill, and it comes with poor grace now for their party press to dls- cluim it, oven though they know the position taken to bo falsu, The strikes have just as much to do with the tarill as has the opposition of Mats. Thoy are the outgrowth of labor unions and the "walking delegates." who propose to force manufacturers to ihvir own tonus, whether reasonable or nol. Were the laborers left lo themselves, and to act independently, there would be no strikes; but whim they put themselves In the hands of ambitious and sometimes unscrupulous lenders iho lioulilu begins, Tim demourate can make no point on the strike question. _ ELECT CLEVELAND AND TAX SUGAR. Ilnlur Ocean.I "Wa admire tho English mid the southern free traders, houausa they tell lit* truth. Wo despise the northern fren traders because they date not lell the truth. Free trade, or 'Ini'llf fur rgveuue only,' wlnult la as near to frun trade »a it is possible lo gut under existing oiiviiiinstiinces, means true uduiisMiQh from all umintries in willed labor is cheap of nil tilings that are, or easily nan ha, pruduoett by thn well paid labor of Amoiloaiis, ami the con- saijiiunl reduction of the prlus of American labor, (t also manna thn Imposition of duties 'for revenue only' ou nil such things ait Amniiimu* need, but whinh they u»n not s'lluolenUy pro- dtjeo, to wlnoh sugar, ttm and nult'eu belong. It lias beau republican pulluy to make these things free of duty, for a tariff on them is a 'tax,' beaauac it does nut pcot'iiit and thmufore It doe* not stimulate pioduullon, unit therefore duos nut evc'liq that omuputitimi which ueoessnrlly luwurs pilous tu tint consumer Just m sine KM it Ints been republican policy in make. U IUKU tilings free of dutji', It will be d»min>r»iio WIN the products of northern labor, and to tux all things that we bought with the wages of northern labor. But the southern democrats do not deny it. The New Orleans Daily Status, easily the loador of the ultra bourbon democrats of Louisiana, hud this to say to the sugar planters of that state, no later than the Hlh day of thuj month. Wc uulreal a careful perusal of our contemporary's editorial ultcruuecs: •Tho facta havo shown, beyond all question, that the tariff for revenue democrats are the friends aud the protectionists are the enemies of tho sugar industry. But these men are iuditler- ont lo fuels while they worship a name. That ovury dumociivt who is nn nutlioi- ity, and every democratic paper which represents auytluug. have stood resolutely for the sugar tariff, whilo every republican who is an authority aud every republican organ, great or small, have denounced that lariff, and that the republican party repealed the sugat tariff.' This is triithfu- history; not the loss truthful that il is recorded by a democratic scribe. Ai to what in iu tho future, we will let the Now Urloaus Daily btntes predict: •The only difference in tho policies thiit will be pursued by the two parlies is just this, mid mark il: If lliu democratic parly captures the government, the sugar bouuty will be withdrawn, anrf thi: nuyur tariff will be restored; while if the republican, or protectiou, party remains in power, the sugar bouuly will be withdrawn, and suyttr will remain on the tree list. That is the difference, aud lot sugar people of Louisiaua keep it in iniud.' The italics arc as priutcd iu tho Daily States. This is a truthful prediction; not the less truthful because the utlerauce of a democratic prophet. Let uortheru wage earners aud householders of all conditions lake tioliee that the leading democrats declare that to «le»t Cleveland is to reiuipose the tax on sugar. We tsnv 'the leading democrats' advisedly, f,or what the south wills that the northern democratic leaders accomplish iu humble, even the humblest, submission to their poor but haughty masters." We wonder that the Julor Ocean overlooked the following item from a laic issue of the great democratic luminary, the Louisville Courier Journal. In an editorial replyiug to Mural Halstead the Courier-Journal uses this vigorous language: "Now mark how a plain tale shall put this royaler down! Just as soon as the democrats get the power they will wipe out the atrocious republican sugar Jjouuty sytleiii and restore the sugar dutios. Iuslead of paying millions of bouuty out of tho treasury to sugar planters, wo will re-establisli the revenue tariff ou sugar, yielding Annually about fifty millions to the treasury. Fut that iu your old clay pipe, Mr. lialsle^d, aud smoke it, and siuoko it like thunder!" Now iu all enudor we a5K our democratic friends if they propose to pay their share of this fifty millions of dollars aunualty iu order to build up the tin manufactories of Wales or the wool en industries of Kuglaud, to say noth- iug of the other industries that Kug- laud is striving for? It is a practical quesliou and must be answered in November. ADDRESS TO THE WOMEN Of Iowa, by tlie Iowa Board of Lady Managers. Miss Ora E. Miller, president, Cedar Rapids. Mrs. N. C.

Since she has occupied her position of lady of the White House, howi ver, her public dulias have largely prevented the exercise of her artistic genius: but iu thai period she Init found leisure to paint oue of the loveliest representations of flower-life that ever came from un artist's brush,—a magnificent "roup of orchids ou a puroelain panel. With that broad and kindly spirit which has marked her career, she has presented Ibis single production of her scam leisure to the public, aud Demorests' Magazine has the honor of being the medium through which this painting is ollerod to the mothers, wives uud daughters of America, to whom it is lovingly dedicated. There is no taint of politics in it; it is simply the tribute of a good woman's love for the women of her nation, superbly expressed iu color and form, — the foremost woman of the republic cementing, by means of her art, her sisterhood with all others of her sex in the land. Mrs. Harrison's painting has hsen reproduced in the highest style of art. of the same size :ia the original (11 ixlh inches), and is an absolutely perfect counterpart, iu every particular, to thu faiuHil tiul of color, anil even lo the peculiar texture of the porcelain. Willi each copy of Deuiorest's Magazine for October ons of these wondcrl'il reproductions of a "White House Orchid," painted 'y the president's wife, in thn While llouse, is lo be prc- sjL'i.teil free.
