Never since wo have attended oon- veutious iu Allamakee county havo wo seen so large and so representative a body of men congregated n9 the one that mot in Waukon last Saturday. Evory township in the county oxcopt Union City was represented, and most of thutu by full or nearly full dologn- tions. This is tho more to bo wondor- od at bocauso the county its supposed to bo democratic by a small majority in fhoso latter years, as a rosnlt of prohibition. It could not bo supposed, under the circumstances, that thoro would bo such a scramble for nominations as was tho case with our dornoerrtio friends, many of whom think a nomination equivalent to an oloction. Hut tho convention wisely decided to present only the names of good and capable men lor tho several positions and to place them before tho people ou their merits. If any or till of them should bo dofeated it will bo no disgrace fer it will only prove, iu that event, that thoir party is in the minority in this^county. Hut tho chances are, that they will not all bo defeatod, although the republican ticket may bo slightly in the miuority in tho county ou general principles. The fact that the democrats had gravo fears is conclusively proven by tho actiou of their convention, which dared not place a single new name on tho ticket, although some of the incumbents had almost thrown gray in their positions. It seems to us this very fact will prove an element of weakness rather than of strength, because it is a slnp in the face to all other deserving democrat* with ambitions, and furthermore it argues *•» court houso ring" with the motto, "noothers need apply." Whether or uot there i3 anything in fact in tills it will always bo charged when the majority party keeps the same "old guard" in office, and it can ' not be successfully denied. " •• ""VYe 1 give tho nominations mado olse- where, and lator we shall have somo- • • .thing to say of the nomlnoes. We only '•say "now oil tho supervisor question it " wiia urged thai as Mr. Kelly, the pres- ",\u'fffillfflW)*®ii is charged to tho siutli '.<.'.'•,, side'of the county it was thought to bo •'."'"unwise'to'nominate a candidate for " '""'that 'office from this section. This did Wi?figure last year, when Mr. Kelly was nominated and elected, and we think It ought not to now, but the convention thought o'horwiao and we must aoquiesco for the proNWit. Post towu- ship presents its present oflicient supervisor for the offico of auditor and wo believe he will bo elected. Bui more on this subject heruufter. TUB democratic legislature of Wisconsin is iu hard luck on tho gerrymander. Its first work was set aside by the supreme court and a spoulal session was oonvened. Tho Msoond. gerrymander has just been declared null and void by the sumo tribunal mid - The campaign hag dually opened up all along the lino, and from now until oleclion, which occurs four weeks from next Tuesday tho campaign will be prosecuted with vigoi on all sides. So far it has been notably a quiet campaign, perhaps the most quiet of any presidential campaign wu havo ever known. This lias been as true of one party as the other, and there can be only otic way of accounting for it, and that is the fact that tho people feel that there is no occasion for a change. Almost always a prcsiden'.ial campaign has unsettled business and caused such a feeling of uncertainty that it lias been a very Irving timo for all financial undertakings. This fcoling has bean singularly absent this year as compared with four years ago. Absolute confidence lias been felt in the oxocutivo arm of tho government, both as regards home and foreign relations. No democrat even has charged any direlictiou of duty on tho part of tho president. Wo nevor had a cleaner, safer or bettor administration, and as a result thoro has boon no mud-slinging whatever up to date. Tho campaign is being conducted on tho issues that divido tho parties. Thoro has boon sonic disposition on tho part of our democratic friends to evade the force of their platform, and to attempt to nihko it appoar that tho tariff plank was only intended for tarill reform and not tho uttor and complete extinction of tho protective principle. Roth Cleveland and Hill attempt to hedge in this particular, but there is no chanco to do so, as tho plank admits of no evasion, autl its author, Henry Wattorson, lias explained, with unmistakable emphasis, what it menus. Tho issue prcsmitod is whether tho American system of protection, which has built up tho greatest and most prosperous nation on earth shall be retained, or whether wo shall now gravitate towards British free trade, with all tho term implios. Tho financial, or mouoy question is also involvod, and tho issue includes tho question of stable money. Attempt to evade it as they may the democratic platform is not sound on Die money question. Thcro is at least a grave doubt iu the demand for tho repeal of tho ten per cent tax on state bank issues. Thoro is no doubt whatever ou tho republican positiou. That party has given the country tho best cutrency tho world has over seen, and never once in thiity yoars has it been discredited, and it is safo to say it will not bo so long as tho governmon', is under republican control. Tho only other issuo is involved in what tho democrats choose to torm tho "force bill," which, when interpreted, means no attempt to secure a froo ballot and a fair count in the southern states Tho democrats havo always opposed this antl tho republicans havo favortd it, in tho south and everywhere elso Here then, nro tho issues, as made up: Tho Ainorican systcn of protection yorsus freo trade, or at least its equivalent, a tariff for revenue ouly. A stnblo and universal currency as good as gold vorsus somo other experiment. Au untrammeled ballot vorsus intimidation and fraud. On thoso issues tho republicans havo won every national election but one in thirty-two years, and what is thoro to prevent thorn from winning this one? There nro no uu tried, theories about the republican positions and there is nothing but theory in the domoorntio positions. If they had faith iu thoir position on tho tariff tboy certainly would havo given the country somo tiling which thoy doom better than tho MoKinley bill at the late session of cougifcss. Their uttor failuro to do so is ovideuoo that they daro not go bofore llio coHiitry with n democratic measure until after uloctiou. Although thoro is always uncertainty as to tho result of an oloction until after tho ballots M - O counted tho result of this ono is at least as certain as any that wo liayo lind for twenty yoars. Without any doubt tho tariff is tho loading issue, as it lias b«ou siuce th lecoiistruc'.ion period, though it never has boon so woll duiinod as no .v. In fact in 1884, when Cleveland was elected, tho domooratio plank was almost identically the same that tho republican plank is now. By a strotoh of imagination it might bo claimed that tho people aro in favcr of tariff reform —that is a tariff for rovontio with inci dontal protection—but thoro is uolhin, to warrant tho idea that thoy aio favor of a tariff without any vosligo of protection, which would opon our ports 10 all compoting products of Europe, But «v«n this blow at American industries might havo been tolerated had not the workings of tho MoKinley law demonstrated that protoolion is the life blood of American prosperity and that hndor its workings, including reeiprot ity, prices ate not advanced but on tho whole lowered, couiniorce has boon stimulated and ovory artery of business has been given new lifo and vigor To suppose that Hit* American people are going to so vote as to imporil the present prosp«rou°. conditions, with no certainty that general disaster will not result, is to suppose that they ar dead to tho vital issuos that have made thoir country the groatost and proudest nation on tiie face of the earth. Wo cannot bolleve that thoy will do it, and henco our faith ia ilrm Unit Harrison and Haiti will bo triumphantly clue ted that stands in tho way cf democratic success. It is to keep the south solid that all these means are used, which are a disgrace to any civilized nation. It is such work as this that oalls for some kind of a "force bill," or some other arcans to insure tho rights of American citizens being respected. ATTACKED BY MOBS. General Weaver Prevented From Speaking in Georgia. RALBIGH , N. C, Sept. 25.—Special telegram. —The spirit of lawlessness evoked and fostered by the organized democracy of the towns antl cities of the south has become so intolerant that demands the attention of law-abiding. God-fearing people everywhere. Free pencil antl a fair count uf the ballot are arrogantly und openly denied. Within the past few days the southern hivalry of Georgia initio democratic Inbs of Waycross, Albany antl Macon resorted to mob violence, and, incited and encouraged by tho democratic press of the state, indulged in hoodlumism and vilo language, and conduct that would put to shame the natives of an uncivilized community. At Columbus a determined effort to reak up a third party mooting was suppressed only because tho farmers were in the majority. At all non-dom- ocratic meetings hold along tho lino ol railroads, great crowds of thugs and rowdies from the laige cities are ship pod in to create not and provoke bloodshed. At Macon the right of speech was denied to Gen. J. B. Weavor, tho presidential nominee of the people's party, and the Young Men's Democratic Club, !i - JO strong, preconeertcdly marched to the meeting antl aidotl in the disturbance and abetted the chiv- nlric rowdies in their disgraceful pro cocdings. Mrs. Gen. Weaver, who accompanied her husband, ami who Is proiniuont "white-ribboner," and lovely, christian gentlewoman, was assaulted ami driyon from Hie balcony of tho hotel Lanier by rotten eggs thrown at her by Maeoti chivalry. Tho mayor of the city was invoked in vain. The polico stood in with tho mob anil laughed and encouraged them. A committee, consisting of the chair- mau of the democratic club, Dr. Nura- ally, of the Presbyterian University, and tho Methodist pastor, wept ami implored mo '.o nddross thn mob anil ]uiot tho demon that had been evoked and lift the odium of disgraco from thoir city, but no human voice could bo heard above the roar of the democratic wild boasts that held possession of the city all night. At tho stalo capitol tho disgraceful scenes of Macon wore twice repeated in the presonco of tho governor of Goor gia, and with an organized polico forco loworless or unwilling to prevent law- ossness, culminated in a frenzied, madly yelling democratic mob, who would not permit au auuouucomeut, and opon- signified thoir intention to suppress frco speech by violence Mob law pre vailed*, and that demon of intolerance that prompted tho fronzy of Sumtor and brought the despair of Appomalox stalked through the city of Atlanta, That the shedding of innocent blood might bo averted Gon. Weaver and his party loft tho state yestorday to rosumo tho political campaign in North Caro 'inn and Virginia. Tho political lines in Georgia are tightly drawn by so-called organized democracy in tho cities as against tho populists of the rural population. As 75 per cent of tho population of Georgia are agriculturists it follows that they are demanding a cessation of tho reign of terrorism anil tho suppression of lawlessness. With a fail count of tho ballots this fall tho death knoll of democracy will sound. Mns. MAIIY LEASE cannot wull be controlled or prevented. The earth closet, the cement lloor, the close drain and tho cistern have other benefits than the saving of manure. It is certain tin... wo can't blame the Lord for our sickness if we havo filthy surroundings. There is a chance and ability to eat and sleep on the farm that cannot be felt in the city.—T. B. Terry. WE find tho following editorial item n the democratic. Duhuquo Telegraph: "Charles A. Spring, recently nominated for tli* legislature by tho demo- rats of a Chicago district, has finally consented to withdraw. Under tho lias of Charles O'Brien ho once seryed two years in tho punitentiary for rob- t-ery.'" It is too bad that this trilling dlsabil- ty could not havo boon removed, as it may bo difficult to fill his place with a less objectionable man. —Tin job department of tho Lansing branch of tho Democrat has been moved to Waukon. Three job offices could not be made to pay in Lansing or any other town of that size. Dr. Ambler still furnishes matter for the Lansing page. WHAT FARMERS MAY HAVE. If you nro satisfied with n small bust nos.s thnt will give a fair income, you may not- take to farming, yet it will givo a bettor yield for a small capital titan any other honorable business known Persons may uot belieyc that statement, although it is truo. No person can name other honorable business requiring only four or fivo thousand dollars that will givo such a yield. It is indued an honest, re until or ativo nnd indopoudent profession, cortaiu merchant was hoard to say that ho had to bo polito to maintain Ms custom, although thoro aro many times when ho would havo gladly kicked somo offending person out of tho door, but on the farm a man is more iude pondout than he can possibly bo in any other place. It is truo that whon sell iug he must havo wlrtt his customer want, but he doesn't havo to moot so many peoplo as doos tho busy business man. Ho can spotid a groat deal raoro timo at home with his family, and this is an important and a sorious feature i tho lifo of overy Individual. Somo men scarcely have timo to become acquainted with their families. It is said that tho child of a dninimor onoo wont to her.mother crying and sit'd, "Mamma the man that slays liore oyor Sunday whipped nio." Tho businoss man oats a hurried breakfast, takes his dinner down tow and gets homo for supper late at night, tired antl vexed and worn out with th duties of a rushing lifo. In tho farm home a man can havo noarly all that is really valuable of the city lifo without many of tho objectionable features of tho latter. Lot us compare some of our farm homos with somo wealthy suburban rosidenoos. Tho latlor havo lino grounds, shapely treos, extonslv lawns, otc, but what country home cannot have tho same with less expenso The lattot can be just as oomfortabl and luxuri 'Hit, though probably not so extravagant. Tho city houso' has its steam healers and radiators, but tho country houso can bo aud many aro tit ted with the same, although, as Charles Dudley Warner says, "Thoro's nothing so choorful ns tho back-log fire," unif cannot dorivo the comfort and inspirit tiou from a hot-air furutica that a glow ing stove can givo. It is true Mint the city has luxury of gas lighting, but the farmer can manufacture his own gas '" ho choose, or what is belter he can light his homo about as wall for one- twelfth the money. The city homo has a batli room, and a farm homo otin anil ought and doos havo tho saino. might bo said that if a mau would put into a farm as much monoy as the above montionotl comforts would tlomaml ho couldn't soli it and got bac (lis money Probably not, Wit the (not is ho doos not want to soil it, Yot the standard of fanniug in going up, and improved farms will lu th» future uo I host) most in demand.

That is nothing. Why, our foreman, with his "little 22," shot the hoad off a at, (or would if its head had been in tho right placo) at a distance of a little over two—feet. Antl ho is nioro than thirteen too. As the rat was in * trap it is needloss to say he was secured. Che ,'Long Tom" aAd the Memorable Battle of Faral. An effort Is being mado to rooover th« famous "Long Tom," a '24-pouud gun lost in tho battle of Knyal, In 1819, from tho Amorlean prlvotoer sehoonor General Armstrong This battlo, In which tho Bluglo American schooner, with her nlno gunB and 90 men, fought single- handed with throo large English vessols, boarlng In all 13D guns and 3,00(1 men, was ono of the most stirring battles of tho war. No quarter was asked or given ou oither side. Tho English vossels hud surrounded tho gallant little General Armstrong, and their men bad boarded her in the midnight attack, but, with pikes and plBlols In their faces, and with the cry of "no quarter" ringing In tltolr oars, tlioy ha:l boon driven back, wldlo tiie calm B«a and tho vessels' Bldoa woro stained With blood. After tho light tho Americans counted ttia cost. Tho "Long Tom," their best and largest gun, ha 1 been knooketl from its curriago by tho oanuouude, but It woe replacod, and next day, whon tho light was ngaln reitowod, the "Long Tom," which alone WHB serviceable dismantled it leant ono of the British ships, causing it to tloo tor safety. The other vessola coming close brought the battle to a rials. Tho Amerieuns, lowering the •oats, scuttled tho ship and pull, d for ihore. Tho British hastily boarded the rivntoer, but eho was beyond hope. In angor and despair they sot her on tire and sho burned to tho water's odgo. Thus tho "Long Tom" was lost, and Koolio sung tho praiaes of tho tight In tho ballad commencing: Toll ibo awry u, your BODS Of iho gallant days of yoro, When ttio brl,; uf tfov-an gnnt Fought tho (lout of »ovou scoro.

TROUBLE HAS • BEGUN The Republican County Convention Met in the court hou»o in Waukon, October 1, 1892. Callod to order by C. M. Reeinan, chairman of the county committoe, who stated tho object of the convention, and on motion J. H. Trowln, of Lansing, was elected temporary chairman and A. M. May, secretary. On motion, tho chairman appointed tho following committee on crodontials: D. H. llowon, of Makeo; James Cavers, of Center; W. N. Burdiok, of Post. Tho committoo reported overy town ship but Uuion City roprosonted in tho convention. Moved and carried that tho temporary organization bo mado permanent. On motion, J. 11. Meier, of Post, was nominated for county auditor by acclamation. Axel P. Dillc, of Waterloo, was nominated for recorder by acclamation. U. H. Stilwoll moved that J. II. Tra win, of Lansing, bo nominated for county attorney by ncolarontion. Mr. Trcwin declined in a short spoeoh, stating that his business nnd profesj slonnl dutios would uot permit him to accept; that it wonid bo absolutely impossible to dovoio tho time to tho canvass that should bo if nominated but ho would do all and the best work ho could for tho party. A vote was called for and pi'l by Mr. Stilwoll, which was solid and unanimous for his nomination, but he doclincd again for the abovo reasons. H. H. Stilwoll's name was presented, but ho said ho had formod a rosolutioi' to koop out of politics, and his professional engage ments also would not permit it. The nomination was left opon to bo filled by tho committee. John T. Robinson, of Iowa, was unanimously nominated by acclamation for county supervisor. John P. Raymond was nominated by acclamation for clerk of the district court. The followiug resolution presented by tho delegation from Jofforson twp., was unanimously adopted: RKSOLVEB , That wo ns republicans of Allamakee county, aro opposed to any county ollloinl holding oflico mora than two consooutivo terms. In nccovdanco with n previous statement that ho would do so, C. M. lloo- man huuded iu his resignation as chairman of tho ooiinly committoo, his timo this season being spent mostly ou the farm; accepted, and on motlou A. M. May was eleated to fill that positiou. Ou motion of H. H. Stilwoll, tho county committee was empowered to (ill any existing vacancy now oxisting, or that may ouour on tho tiokot iu timo for tiling as the law directs. No further business itppeariug, tho convention adjourned. One of the firm has just returned from Chicago with one of the largest and best selected stock of goods that was ever brought to this place and in order to substantiate the fact you have only to step in and look for yourself. Every line of goods is complete. Our stock of Ladies' Dress Goods cannot be excelled in the town. Dress Goods from 10c up.
