POBTVII.LE, - IOWA. sido of politics our democratic friouds would hayo had no glory in tho past, and in fact nothing to biag on now. Every ono of them will admit that had it not been for tho ono local issue of prohibition, which has no possible bearing in this campaign, this county (lis trict and stato would now bo so solidly republican that it would bo an idle waste of timo to make democratic nominations. Tho American pooplo havo but once in thirty-two years voted to sustain tho democratic party, and that was a questionable victory, which was sharply rovorsed at the noxt election Gonllomon. if you have arguments to adduce, or think you havo, prosent thorn soriously and thoy will bo considered in the same spirit. Choap burlesques of county conventions, candidates, public meetings and gleo clubs only weaken tho causo thoy aro intended to promoto by showing tho paucity of facts and arguments at the command of thosp using them.

Tkt and Pass. Agt., Codar Rapids, Iowa. The republican committee am pleased lo announce that Senator Wm. U. Allison will discuss tho political issuos involved in the present campaign at Turner Hall," on Wednesday evening, Oct. 12th. It is needless for us to say one word of introduction in this case. Sonator Allison has for years stood very near the head of the class of American statesmen, and no man in the United States secures moro respectful nnd profound attention, oven in tho great cities of the east, than ho. He is not a fj.eiit orator and yet ho is tho most argumentative and convincing spenkcr in the west. Ho is absolute authority ou financial questions, and when hn makes a statemont there is nothing further to bo said on thosubjuct. To deny his figures or tako exceptions to his conclusions is fool-hardy, nnd no well informed domocrnt has prcsumod to do it for years. Tho coming of Iowa's senior uouator to Postvillo should bo tho occasion of n great outpouring of tho people for miles around. Democrats should hoar thespcech so (hat when their speaker comes to answor it thoy may havo a full understanding of the nrguments. Our male quartet will bo on hand with now songs and music to enliven tho occasion. As usual everybody, binding ladies, cordially invitod. Bo on hand oarly. Speaking will commence at 8:00, preceded by musiv. —Somo rapid boys have been doing dnmago and committing various depredations iu tho west part of town. Don't do it, boys. It won't pay in tho long run. "Life is r«al, life is earnest," and there is no time to sow and harvest a crop of wild oats. It is only a little while until you will havo to tako on tho duties and responsibilities of lifo and your best capital will bo good habits, and a character and reputation above reproach. If yon havo these you will suocood whether you havo any other capital or not, and without th»m you can't succeed, no matter what the othor surroundings may bo. Be manly boys.
