WE did not at first attach much im- •portanco to the Oos'.'o "blufl"' of Congressman Butler, ami have until now said very little about it. Wo doomed it simply a vory foolish predicament for Mr. Butler to got into, as it com promised oithor his veracity or his knowledge of current legislation, or both. , Hut we were astonished to see that ho was going around the district DEXTINO THE FACTS, and throwing the odium of the opisodo on Mr. UpdografT that belonged to him. Ho publicly Admitted the facts In n joint dubato at Limo Springs the following evening, and wc supposed this ended it; but what was our surprisu to soo that ho went di- A'cetly from Lima Springs to other up- •pointuionts where Mr. UpdugnilY was .not present, and positively denied thorn! Thii 1 lias brought out numerous affidavits from many of the most prominent citizens of Cresco and 1 /iino Springs, which aro far more damaging to Mr. Butler than llio original "blufl'" was. It is beginning to look cloudy for Walt's reputation. Unless ho enn meet these affidavits with abso'.uto rebuttal it, would have b«on better for him to have withdrawn from tho candidacy as ho agrood to do. Walter should take Cleveland's advieo and "loll tho truth." Two years ago every democratic speaker and every democratic paper that enme to our doors "rested tho case" on tho assumption that the McKinloy bill would add to the price of every article upon which tho tariff duty was increased. Because at that time thcro could bo no direct evidence to disprove it tho people were alarmed and worn, over to tho othor sidn by droves ami by dozens, and returned n democratic majority of I'M) to the present congress. Now what will these same votor.i do when it has been proven in cvu-y town and hnmlct in the United Stales by actual demonstration that not a singlo article entering into daily consumption has hoen raised in price, but on tho other hand the av«r- igc price lias hern reduced, whilo tho tendency of wages has been upward? They went oft solely through fear that they would be linancially injured Now that they KNOW that Ihey have been BESKKITTKP, what will they do? Does not this seem to. be a ridiculous question? Can there be more Ihnn one answer from nn intelligent people? Will they not say in thunder tones, "you deceived us once bv your calnrt ity cry, but you cannot do it again?" Up to a few weeks ago tho speaker* and papers clung to the falsehood that prices were higher, but the proof has hoen KG overwhelming that to avoid the elmrgo of Idiocy they have finally desistod, and now assert that as the prices are not advanced nobody would bo injured if there was no protection at all! And this is the weakest argument of all. That prices aro lower is solely the result of home competition, miulo possible by giving the manufacturers Every democratic paper and spenker is bewailing the condition of the poor farmer, who "pays the tax" and gets no benulit from the I arid', with its reciprocity provisions. It is probable that a fow farmers may be ignorant enough to accept such stuff as truth, but we havo too much faith in their Intelligence to belicye that many of them are. Tli» fact is there is no cla?n of our people more benefitted by tho McKinloy law than tho farmers • not even excepting the manufacturers. The increased profits to tho farmer on the one item of pork nlono, caused by reciprocity, will average not loss than $100 per year, to say nothing of the hundred other avenues of profit opened to him. On this subject last week's Docorah Republican aptly remarks "Beforo McKinloy -law-reciprocity picked tho locks to tho Cuban market, American Hour was charged a tariff of over 100 per cent. Not ono pound in twenty of that consumed by lliu Cubans was supplied by this country. 95 per ceut was from Spain. When reciprocity threatened to put up a barrier that would bar out Cuban sugars, unless alio look down hur barrier to our Hour, the Spanish authorities hastened to lower this furrier. Whnt has been the result? American flour now has almost oxclus'iye control of the Cuban market, Whero wo onco sold nlmo«t none, we now sell more than the Cubans ever consumed Reciprocity did it. And the democratic platform denounces this as fraud. We havo been consuming, every year, sixteen to cightcon million dollars worth of (icrman beet root sugar. But Germany wis 'protecting' her pork raisers by au embargo on American pork, because it was alleged to be trichinous. The threatened loss of their sugar maiknt, led Gormany to investigate tho real quality of American ivore closely. To facilitate her poric j. „ „ tho bcnolit of tho homo market, thus eyesight the congress that passed the inducing capita' to seek investment in McKmley law, adopted acts which hon- manufacliires, which never would have est old Jerry Rusk used most effectively THERE is a groat deal of discrepancy between tho estimates of the democratic press and pt.rty on the outcomo of the congressional campaign in this district. Some enthusiasts of that party claim Butler's olection by a larger majority than ho had two years ago, whilo others modestly claim a majority equal to that of Gov. Boies in tho district last year. We understand that Mr. Bntlor privately admits that it is a , vory close light, which is doubtless far move reasonable than any of tho other estimates. On national issues thore is no quostion but this district is still republican by a safe majority if republicans will do their duty on election day. The postoflices are not in issue this year, and neither is the McKinloy bill in the sense it was two years ago. Republicans will be disappointed if Mr. Updogruff is not elected, but they make no extravagant claims. Thoy rely on tho people uot being fooled again on tho tariff quostion as thoy wore two yean ago, and the postollien soreheads have had tlmo to heal. Thuro is no excuse in tho world for any man who has ever been a republican this your Voting against Thomas UpdegratV. been done with the bars thrown down to Europe. The United Stales aro willing to compete against each other, for as wc have before stated, tho conditions of this competition aro equal. The same wage schedule, the SIMUC interest charge and tho same genoral conditions are upon to all alike. But when Europe is thrown into the scale everything is changed. Lower wages, lower interest and a cheaper standnrd of living at onco outer into the problem, and American competition becomos impossible only on an ovon scale iu all these factors of o.\ponso of production. Don't lot anybody induce you to bolieve that the American standard of wages and of living can bo maintained when we are compelled to compete with Europe on an eycu market. Yon might just as well attempt to sot aside the law of gravitation, or that other equally dem onstratcd law that like begets like. It is labor, both common and skilled, that fixes the prion of everything, for it is almost all labor, when reduced to its lowest '.onus. It is labor that mines the coal, quarries tho stone and fells th? timber, just as much as it U labor that finishes tho product. If it is cheap labor, from the ground up, that puts goods upm tho market to compote with us, thon is it truo that we must meet these conditions with equally cheap labor or retire from tho Hold of competition. But our friends say that non-pro- tectud industries in this country pay just as good wages as protected industries. Wv reply that thcro is no such thing as non-protected industries hero. Water will seok its lovol, and so will wagos. If what aro termed protected industries paid hotter wages than other iudiistrios, then ovcrybody would rush to tho protected industries for employ mont, and nobody would bo loft to do common or farm work. Hence tho farmer and tho omployor of common labor must pay just as high wages for equally skilled labor as any other industry pays. It is a very short road from tho farm to the workshop or from tho stioet laboror to thu factory, and the laborer can be relied upon to And tho position that oilers the best pay. Wo bcllovo thoso propositions to bo self-evident facts; mid if so how Is it possible for any laboring man to givo his voto to a party that is clnniorin, for all tho barriers to bn taken down between the Europoau laborer and himself? For tho faint hopo of getting a very few articles a litttlo cheaper doos ho want to put himself on a par with tho European laboror? Lot him go to England er any other country and soo how many farm laborers become owners of farms, how many operatives become heads of factories and how many merchant's and bunker's clerks become merchants and bankers. Onco a laborer always « laboror is the rule in Europe, whilo iu America It is tho rule that the laboror iu later years becomes the head of nn establishment For our part wo favor tho American plan for America, lotting other conn tries do as thoy please. Wo want our laborers to oontinuo to be men, not serfs. IF tho American consumer pays tho duty on nil goods imported from England, can anybody tell us why English papers nnd people are so anxious for Cleveland's election, and the repeal of our present tariff? If we pay tho duty here, what do thoy care about the MeKlnlov bill? THE supreme court has jdeeirted the Michigan plan constitutional nnd that state will voto for presidential electors by districts. This will give Cleveland part of tho olectoral vote of that state, but It will avail him nothing. New York is still the pivotal state; nt least the democrats cannot win without it although the republicans may. Now take these two sentiments and see how democrats stand together: We wage," says Mr. Cleveland, "no exterminating war against any Ameri can interest." Then comes Senator "Vest, tho most conspicuous friend : of Cleveland in the west, nnd says: "Mr Cleveland has challenged the protected industries to a fight of oxtormmation, Tho fight is to the death." in removing tho scruples of tho German authorities. Reciprocity and moat inspection reopened thu'German and French markets. And what results? With an numonso hog crop last year prices advanced and havo been grandly remunerative. Let tho farmer as ho pockets tho monoy ho gets from tho sale of his pigs remember that a cent to a cent and a half on ovory pound is to bo credited up to reciprocity in that McKinloy law. Tho dem -ratic platform declares ono a fraud and tho other unconstitutional. But tho farmer pockets from $2.50 to $5 extra on ovory hog ho sells, just the same. There is not a couutry in South America witli which our people trade but lias bought more of us, in agricultural products, cured meats nnd manufactured goods than over before, and tho trade is growing rapidly. Evory bit of the increase is duo to reciprocity, nnd the farmer is ono of tho most bene­ fitted. Thoso aio the real ways in which the McKmley law is affecting the farmer of the west. It has laid no additional burden upon him, (for nothing ho buys has been increased in cost—has it?) whilo his sugar is cheaper, his wheat market is enlarged in countries where ho has not to compete with either tho product of Russ'.a, Austria or tho East Indies, and iucrensed profit has been added to his hog crop equal to SJJ per cent. Has the farmer no personal interest in tho quostion? Wc should say ho IT scorns that Mr. Butler is scared about the Crosco opisodo and challenges Mr. Updcgraff to another joint debate to be held at Cresco. Wo don't know whether Mr. Updegrnff will accept tho challenge or not, but it lpoks like child's play to us. What was said cannot bo unsaid nud tho largo and onco present beforo know what was then said just as well ns they will if it is repeated or denied. Thcro is no time now to go over tho district nnd explain what was said in former discussions. Tho two gentlemen can just as well make thoir explanations, if thoy havo any to make, through tho prcs.s, and submit them thus to those who heard tho discussion for thoir decision as to their correctness, submitting. Affidavits if thov desire, mid go on with tho cnmpalgn. Wo believe Mr. Updo graft' has uot spoken in Allamakee at ill as yet, and as there arc only four teen working days before oloction it is evident that ho will bo unable to cover tho district without' repeating nny speeches. But this is for him, not us to decide. SNAKE* U»ED IN DECORATING. Th« 1'ropnffntlon ° r H Will 8o «a n» •« i >ri >nii >M» ttiduorr- With the growing popularity of an»k»- •kln for uao In trllolue of dnooratlon, tho propagation of rattlesnakes for the sake of Uio skin and oil bids fair to become a profitable industry in thU country. llntUesnake f«rmln« would undoubtedly posse** attractions for many young men who have a fondness for ex- purlmnntuifr. Vostx of nna'coskin aro popular In omopvUof tho South, and tor decorative purposes other thun for irvurlnff ap.arel thu snakeskln Is gaining In fsuor In Now York. In the leather shops one may soo any number of | pooitolbuoks, card oases, portfolios, firuBhlug oiisoi, wldp handles and Look- Mn-UnKB of th's unique material. In parte of South America a lover cannot ake a more acceptable gift to the adored aenorlta than a pa!r of dainty house choos made from the skin of n a-ttlesnake. When Hnrd with brlght- olorod satin thoy are exiocdln«ly pretty, but thoir chief charm to tho wearer lies In tho fact that the bo 'd suitor liimsnlt killed the snake for thoso particular shoos. In all of tho largo novelty shops in tho West Indies may to eeon bolts, Klnl.o-i jtnd ovou vests made of rattlo- snako skin. It is very effeotive when Hi ode up and eovvlcvablo as well, for tho scales do not woar off. A fashion that may be a Uttlo slow In gaining favor wits the Broadway swell In tho snake nooktlo. Not a manufactured Bilk or tinsel anVr Is moanl, but genulno snnkc, of course properly cured and treated to proservo Its flexibility. Amon« tho cowboys In certain pnrts of Australia this unlquo fashion has obtained for several seasonB nnd bids fair to bo as popular this summer as over. When caroloBsly tied about tho half-open collar of u tlannol shirt It Is very ictoliln«, und It Is tho admiration of tho bello of every kangaroo flat. It Is just tho finishing touch to a plot- uresquo attlro, and Is In perfect keop- Ing with tho sombrero, Colt's revolvers, bowto knives, leather bolt and the rest. Thon, too, thero Is another consideration by no means unimportant. Think how charming tho susp ndor-holstcd and veBt -ndorncd summer girl will look with this ongaglng reptllo tied In a lovor's knot under the stiff turn-down collar of her percale shirt? ErBitr time that Mr. Butler makes a speech the democratic papors stato that "Mr. Updograff failed to materialize, us 'usual," just as if evoiy ono of these meetings wera arranged for joint discussions by tho congressional committees. Wo aro reliably informod that evory ono of the joint dismissions arranged for by the republican and demooiatlo committee^ have been held, and hence all this talk about failure Is simply "bluff," und Itusa falso charges of (allure on Mr. UpdegrafTs part aro simply made fur eft'eoi, without a shadow of feuodation in fact. Hereafter trill tho demooratlc proas please add the certificate of th<j|r democratio congressional COSWliUoa Imfnra nk«~.l~~ THE Inter Ocean publishes tho following wail from England relative to tho working of tho McKinloy bill there. It is from tho Liverpool Echo of a late date: "The Welsh tin plalo industry is ruiued and tho plush trade of Hiidders- fiold is about to bo transferred bodily across the Atlantic to a point within the tariff wall. The cotton trade of Lancashire is so depressed that no one knows what may come next, ami consequently all brisk ontorpriso is strangled and u genoral fooling of apprehension provailf as regards what tlio morrow may bring forth. Tho latest evidence) of tho injury done to British trndo by tho McKinloy tariff—which, whilo not enriching tho Unitod States population, but only tho interested manufacturers, makes us on this side poor indeed- -is afforded by tho balance sheet of the steol company of Scotland, which shows a balauco on tho wrong side less than £18,000." Ana again the same journal says: "No doubt the old country will pull throng! somehow, us she has done before, but it is to bo feared that if the McKinloy tariff is to be indefinitely maintained it will b» at a cost in suffering and pov orty which is at present impossible to ostininto, and it may further involve n pormaneut lowering of tho greatly improved standard of comfort whic has been attained by the working class os of this country during llio prosou century." That this is bad for England all will concede, but was it for England or for tho United Suites that the McKinloy law was udoptod? And is there any thing in tho above wail that would indicate that "the cousumor pays tho tax?" JUDGE GRESIIAH deuies emphatically that Im over said that ho would speak or vote for Cleveland. Whether ho does or not, or whethor Gen. Sickles doos or not is a qiiesttott of very small moment, for thoy lire but two men in this great countty of. 65,000,000 people. The vote of the most insignificant man in tho country will weigh just as much as either of these, though thoir inlluenco on others may not bo its great. Tho position that eithor takes does not chauge the issues prssonted to tho American people, and their course Ahould-Ui4ye no influence for or against oithor party.

X., last Frill aj evening, among othor good tilings ho remarkod on tho subjuot ot great fortunes and protection: "Tho turiff, so tho democratic papor, say, is the origin of a plutocratic gov ornment, when woalth shall rule und poor men shall not get their rights, shall vonluro to challenge all state ments of '.hat kind und I shall make tho domocrulio licensors tho judges in the case. A oarofnl examination of the list of wealthy men in the country has been published and has demonstrated thu faut to bo quite tho rovorso; to such an extent, indeed, that in tho city of New York, taking tho first 150 great fortunes, not three, not two, not raoro tlmn one would bo considered as dotiv ed from manufacturing investments.' And this is the indisputable fact nil 6/or thu country. Tho history of tho country provos that manufacturing has not beau more pvotltablo than other business considering the capital invested- But It has boon far moro profitable to tho latriv rg, because it has giy- on them steady and remunerative employment, which could not have bean the case hud not theso industries been protected, OUR old friend, J. C. Murphy,; for merly of Oss'mn, is making groat republican speeches out in the new stato of Washington, whero ho resides. Ho is no baokwoods, country speaker, but is flaking tho echoes in tho cities of Tacoma and Seattle and all other prominon towns, and tho papors are all speaking of him as a great orator. Tho Senltl Post-Intclligencer gives tho following extract from his remarks on the ropub lican nominee for governor: "My friends, 1 like that man because ho has been fnithful nnd truo to every trust reposed In him. Ho was not born iu tho lap of luxury, but poverty camo to him as i birthright. Like many of us, the darn shadow of orphanage was thrown over tho path of his boyhood Hard toil was tho companion of his carlv yours. His shoulders were press ed by evory burden that labor must beav while winning bread.' His feet have trod tho ruggod paths of toil and been torn by the thorns which border them. Ho is moro iu touch with tho common pooplo and has n warmor place in their hearts than any man i tho stato. No bribo has over crossed his palm. No corpornto iufluouco »vor him. Ho is an honest man. Th republican party, with a record that covors tho period of Washington greatest advancement, plaoos its color m the hands of this capable and good man, nnd with all thu courage of conviction pledges itself to follow whero this David of republicanism loads."
