In ti county that like this Is usually democratic republicans am apt 10 sny to themselves it will make no dilVerenco anyway, the couuty will go democratic. This is by no moans certain this year, and if it vsoro certain there Is moro than this to bo considered. All nro now conceding that tho congressional race is very olo6o, and if so or.o vote may turn tho scnle, as it may on even more candidates. Somo of tho county candidates nro going to vim very close, and we liopo to olect some of them, but to do it will rcqulro every npiihliuitti vote. Tliis is a year that there can bo no excuse '^for a stny-at-homo republican vote except sorious sicklies?. A full vote will mean 11 grand victory. YVith- •oin it failure will bo certain, because tho democrats always turn out. This .i? ono of thoir most commendable virtues. Republicans should tako lessons from thorn in this respect, ami vole. BLAINK publishes a paper in the .Noveiubor North American Review •which, places him again on record as still mi uncompromising republican and a supporter of President Harrison. We, with nearly nil ropublicnns, deplore tho action of Mr. B 'aino in withdrawing from tho caoinot when ho did, and apparently allowing his name to go boforo tho Minneapolis convention after having proviously declared that it would not go there, bill his steadfast adhesion to l.is lifo long republicanism goos a great way towards condoning this one mistake if his lifo, and reestablishes him in the con- lideuco of his parly. Unliko a few soreheads of somo prominence ho is too great a man to lay his principles on the altar of defeat. Even tho presidential office could add no honor to such a man. Th(. democratic papers are just now urging that it is not UirilY but supply and demand Unit settles the ipiesliuii of ! wages. This, in the broad sense, is j iinipiostionablv true; hut. what gauges the supply to ilie demand, pray? Do our friends wish to be understood as saying that tho demand for labor would be just as great if throe-fourths of all our manufactured gouds were shipped in Irom Euglaud? Would there be as great a demand for farm labor if three- fourths of the farms were thrown open to common? Would there be as great a demand for common labor in Post- villo if there was no building or street work being done and the burning of wood substituted by tho uso of uoal? Every man who can give a day's work to n laborer is a benefactor to that eNlcnt, and any nation that can and does legislate in a manlier that, will give remunerative employment to its citizens has done a higher duty than it would do if it donated a thousand dollars to each individual laborer. All an honest, industrious man asks is nn opportunity to count one in the great hive of industry, that he may enrye out his own fortune and support his family independent of any gratuity. Ho can easily do this for many generations yet if the work required by Americans is done in America. But if it is hugely done in the old world by labor at starvation prices, he can not hop*, to do it. U is true that a tnritY in France and (ieviiiany does not. insure high wages, because the supply of labor is so much greater than tho demand. It is also true Unit when this country has been settled as long and peopled as densely tariffs will not help out labor. The ttucsliau is shall we put off this period for another thousand years or shall wo inaugurate it at once by letting down the bars now to these underpaid and underfed nations? That is the question that the people of the United Slates will be called upon to decide next Tuesday, or at least one of the questions. Do not argue with yourselves as some of you do with republicans, that tho democrats will not carry out the principles of '.heir platform as to tariff] and money if they succeed to power. We know if tho majority of northern democrats had their choice thoy would not. But we know that the northern wing of the democracy never rules tho party, and we know that the demand for free trade and free stato bank circulation came to Chicago last June from tho south, which has always favored thesis measures, Tho solid south is the democratic party, and in tho event of success in tho executive and lugislativo branches of tho government thcro is iiu question but their edicts will bo law. But whether it .should be or not you have no right to supp iso that they will act otherwise than in accordance with their platform, because this constitutes their ai'iicles of faith and their pledge to tho people. And neither does it matter that you know, which you certainly do, that thoy CANNOT carry out thoir platform pledge as lo Uio tnrilT, for tho simple reason that tho money to run tho government cannot thus bo seemed. While they must fail in the attempt the experiment may bankrupt tho nation and paralyze all its industries. Such an attompt would certainly produce this result without tho possibility of benefit- ling anybody. You know that wo ivs a people arc. prosperous now, perhaps tho most so that wo over havo been sinco wo wore a nation. What moro is it possible to gain by .1 change? Wo nro all American eitistens, oither by birth or naturalization, or at least those of us who yoto uoxt Tuesday are. As such shall /vo voto in tho interest of Amorioa or England P Evory foreign power on earth prays for the oloction of Cleveland and a democratic congress that all trade barriers may bo bvoken down so that thoy ami thoir laborers may find an unrestricted market hero for their wares.. Shall wo voto in the interest of the Europoan or of tho American laborer? Next Tuesday must decide. TllB Dubuque Telegraph still voeifo- rates that tliu democrats do not want iind would not have stato bank circulation if they could. Again and for the last tlmo we hopelessly ask, why thou repeal the penalty? Tho republicans do not want it aud because thoy do not they oppose tho repeal of tho ton por cent, penalty, which is tho only way to prevent it. All good citizens are opposed to crime, but do '.hoy want all penalties for the commission of crime repealed? Suoh argument seems too frivilous for oven children to make. By its action the democratic party is on record in favor of free stato hank circulation and it cannot eseapo it. CLEKK OF THE COURTS. IF Cleveland should be oloelod It will bo reasonably sure that with him both houses of congress will bo democratic, aud for tbtf liisl time since 1860 tho whole maoliiiiory of government will bo in democratic hands. Should both houses ot congress ba do noeratio, with Hnrrisou in tho presidential chair no This important position is to bo tilled among other plaoos, next Tuesday Tho republicans present Uio name of John P. Raymond, the man who its deputy under h. M. Boarco was, so far as tho work of thoollico was concerned, the clerk do facto, although ho had no par', either in the salary of the ollicc or tho responsibility for tho funds. Everybody who had anything to do with that ollleo during those years knows that tho books and papers of tho office never wore kept in bettor shape, and never was there a moro accommodating and painstaking oflicur. He worked faithfully for yours tor wages that barely afforded him a subsistence, oxpeoting that tho tiuio would oome when tho people of tho county, recognizing ids fitness for tho place, would accord to him a term or two of tho ollicc, tho siuuo that tho domocrats always do in tho oaso of thoir etllolont deputies. Now thoro is an opportunity lo do lardy justice to an honest man and an oflieient oilioor. Will the people recognise his olaiius and consult their own iutovoft.. by electing him next Tuesday? So kir as the defalcation in that ollleo is concerned Mr. Kaymoud is as innocent as is the mail who reads these linos, the money in' cash book not being in his charge at all, aud ho haying mi inuars of knuwing what was being dono with iho money. Voto for John P. Raymond and you will luako uo mistake Fou« yoars ago, with the sanio candidate* at.the head of tlto I wo tickets onlauilty could come to tho country, j Mr. IJarrlsou VUUL nwiuuui^^ Congressman Butler having passed through and around Postville during the cami'.'iign, and having spoken on all sides of us, and having deferred his appointment here until the evening preceding election, wo feared that hu might li'ire seen a new light never dreamed of in the philosophy of Allison, McKinley or Blaine, and was contemplating springing it upon us so suddenly as lo take away our breath, and giving us no opportunity to warn the people to lieu to the mountains while thcro was yet time, wc thought something ought to be done for humanity's sake. Last Monday he spoke at C'as- talia in the afternoon and jumped to Monona in the evening. Wo braved tho inclemency of the weather and went down to the latter place to hear tho speech. Perhaps wo were, never out until I o'clock in the morning, in the iniilst. of a drenching rain for so small compensation. We want to proface .vli .it wc may say by tho remark that Mr. Butler, so far as ive know, at least on "our side of tho house," is our personal friend, outside of polities. Ho is a jolly good fellow and a smooth talker. In tho language of one who listened to tho Monona speech, "ho can talk all around tho edges of a question without touching its vital points with greater agility and apparent fairness than any man I ever hoard speak." And thin is his great fort as a campaigner. Ho starts on a premise to suit himself and then proceeds lo elab oralc it and weave about it an air of plausability that is bewildering to man who accepts his promises, hut at the satno lime is the shallowest mockery of an argument to those who havo gone to tho bottom of the question. We do not propose to follow him through his speech. About half of it was practically the same thing ho gave us in Postville two yoars ago. lie eliminated that part of it that then prophesied that prices of goods under tho McKinley bill would bo so hi that no poor man could afford to buy the necessaries of lifo. In place of that hu admits that prices are lower, but asserts that tho tariff did not make them lower, because it is a tax, and tax' never made anything lower, etc. Tho first half hour he gave to the slate bank discussion, defending tho plank in the platform although he said ho voted igaitist a bill of that kind in congress. Ho reiterates that state banks can never bo banks of issue, anil that nobody wants them to bo such unless they are nations sound as the money of tho United States. But ho did not show why the necessity of the repeal of tho penalty at Iho present time if this is true, neither did ho make it clear why, when tho penalty removed tho stales cannot go on and issue money under unrepealed laws now on tho statute books of tho several states, without any now legislation or submission to a voto of the people. Perhaps ho will do so in ids Postville spoeoh. But tho tariff occupied Uio greater portion of his time. If wo judge him corroctly ho takes tho position that tho tariff is always a tax to tho consumer. This is so palpably absurd that with tho ovidenci! in every store of tholaud to tho contrary wo care not to discuss it. As wo havo said before, if goods nro higher in Postville or any other to/vn than thoy wore two years ago, then ho has a case. If not it falls to Iho ground. But right hero ho says Inrontivo gouius and higher intelligence nro the factors that lower pricus. lias thoro, in tho past two yoars, suoh a Hood of light dawned on tho manufacturing interests of tho United Stales as to cause tho cheapening of goods to tho amount of tho McKinley tariff? Has thoro, in this brief time, eomo such a revolution in tho manufacture of tin plate, for instance, as to make it now just as cheap as before tho duty was raised? And this applies to overthing elso as well There must bo a screw loose somewhero hero. But glanco at his sophistry tor a moment. His favor- ito illustration is tho Parisian hat. Ho supposes a man in Now York wants a hut, and he sits down and writes to a dealer in Franco 10 sond him such a hat as retails in Paris for $1.00. In duo time it comes and ho is mot at the custom houso with a donmml for 60 ots. revenue duty, which added to tho lirst cost of tho hat is Sl.OO. "Who pays tho tax?" If such a Ktato of facts woro supposablo Iho purchaser would pay il of course But there nro two very necessary ingredients loft out of this calculation, tho Hist being that ho could havo doubtless bought an Amori can hat for a dollar in tho lirst place, and tho second is that suoh is not a supposablo manner of importation Tho Now York iiio-.-ehnnt knows tho vnluo of Amoiicau hats and ordinary business prudence would Induce him in his order or loiter to stato that ho can buy that quality of hat of tho American mauiifiioturor for $1.00, but as somo of his customers prefer a French made hat ho will tako BO many dozen If he will lay thoin down in Now York at the sumo price. Tho French manufacturer having supplied tho homo demand at a pvolil, rather than carry over tho bid auco of his stock until it becomes out of style and practically worthless, accepts the offer. "Who pays tho tux?" The Wales tin plato niaiiufno- turpi* lays down his wares in New York today at tho same price praotl cully, as ho did two yoars ago. "Who pays tho taxP" Woolen clothing, oar. pots and practically ovory'.iilng clnQ is as cheap or uhonpor than t*o yoars | that is not tin; condition of the United States yet, and will not be for a few hundred years to come, provided all our industries are guarded and fostered. Bui bow long will il be delayed if our ports are thrown open to the free importation of pauper made goods? When our wages are reduced to the European scale our inventive genius and superior skilled labor will vanish like a vision. When our inventors and skillsd mechanics have to utilize every moment of (heir lime to keep the mouths of their families tilled with bread and their backs covered with lolhing they will have little time or inclination to rack their brains to invent machinery that will only tend to reduce both labor and wage-. But our congressional friend wants everything cheap. The heaven ho aspires to will not be heaven to hinl if everything is not on a cheap scale. Cold paved streets and gates of pearl will not do for him, especially if thoro is any "protection" there! Ho says thai if tho tarifl adds S ots. por dozen to tho price of oggs il is wrong because tho consumer of eggs has lo pay tho enhanced price! If cheapness is Iho day dream of the ago wo certainly should go back to the halcyon days of free trade, when oggs wore three cents a dozen, butter five cents a pound and wages fifty cents a day. But thoio of us who remember those days have no desire for thoir return. No carriage in the barn, no music in tho house, no carpet on Uio floor, no money in the pocket. Wo are thankful to Mr. Butler for admitting that there is a lillle tin plate made in ibis country, though his making light of tho amount manufactured the first y»ur is not fair, when wo consider that a tin plato plant is an expensive thing and it takes tinto to get tlicm in operation. But at the present rate of increase il will bo a question of only two or three years more when the supply will equal tho demand of the homo market. But Mr. Butler after a',1 says tho tariff is not the main issue, but tho "force" bill. If this is true then there is no issue worlh traveling over Uio district to maintain. If it is tho kind of a bill Mr. Butler says it is there is no danger of any party passing il. Bui wo don't believe it is any such bill. If Mr. Butler is correct then under it elections are practically abolished, tho supervisors doing il all and counting the vote as it pleases them, just its the election boards now do in !lie south. Wo don't want any southern mothods hero or anywhere elso and it is our belief that under tho Lodge bill, tit national elections only, the supervisors wore simply to see that ud frauds wore practiced, and thai every voter votes as lie pleases and that his voto is counted as cast. Is there any wrong or hardship in this to an honest man? Wo fail to soo it. Mr. Butler closed by challenging any republican to point, to any vote east by Mr. Updegraff while in congress, wlioro the Interests of the pooplo wore on ono side and those of monopolies on tho other, that he did not voto on tho sido of monopolies. Why don't our friond particularize so that tho pcoplo may ducidu whether theso votes really wore on tho ono side or tho o'.lier? Wo deny that Mr. UpdogralT ever cast a yoto that ho and his party did not holiovo to bo in Iho interest of tlto people. It makes a vast difference through which party's oyes you look. For instance if Mr. Updegraff had been in oongiess two years ago ho would certainly have voted for tho McKinley bill, and this would have been the no plus ultra of monopoly according to Mr. Butler, but would havo been in strict aeco'dance with tho interests of tho whole country, not only according to republican faith but on Iho evidence of the history of tho times. So this challongo goos for nothing. In summing up wo will simply say that those who hoar Mr. Butler's speech will get no veal light on Iho issues of tho campaign. Thoy will hear a very smooth, moo sounding speech but il will not bear analysis in tho light of tho facts. Thoy are all on tho other sido this year. Voto for Thomas Updegraff and oontlnuoil prosperity. OUT AGAINST CLEVELAND. Qon. O. Jonos, tho Great Groenback- er, Against Grovor Cleveland. Gon. Weaver's Old Manager. Gen. (). Jones, of Now York, arrived in DesMoinos, Wednesday, and registered at Uio Savory. Ho is well known as the ox-chiiirmaii of tho national greenback comiuilloo, and was for several yoars tho leader of tho party. He is a thorough indcpotidonl in politics, anil although elected as a dologato to the Omaha convention refused to surve us snuli. "I am far from being a republican," said ho Wednesday to a ItJgister reporter, "but in this campaign I want to soo Grovor Cleveland defeated. Ho is the candidate of England and i'.s mug­ wump allies in this country. His policy on silver and tho tariff tiro true English policies.. Ills present nomination was first suggested by loading English '.lewspapors, directly after tho elections of 1890. Cleveland, us you roniomhor, was oloetod by tv very mil- row majority in 1881. The nomination of 1'hoinas A, Hendricks was ono of Iho uii'oiimstuiK'os that led to his oleo lion. Mr. Hendricks slumped his sUU<- atid told its people, and tho pooplu of the whole country, that if the iluitw ago. "Who pnvs the uvea .nulowlii IVQBUUU^.J. enmity to silver, tho result would bo ' most disastrous to the business interests of the country. The average price of silver for the. twelve years previous to 1^81 was ?1.M} per ounce. During ids lorm the price averaged fl(i| cents per ounce. The nvetage export price of wheat from 1872 to IHH'i was $1.16}. and from 1884 to 1889, 873 cents por bushel. This was all duo to tho anti- silycr recommendations of Cleveland. As between the democratic and republican panics, tho republican has been tho truest friond of silver, because it passed the act of July 14, 1890. The republican platform says that tho paiity between gold and silver should bo determined through logisla- J lion, and tho present republican srero- lary of tho tvensury says that there is not enough gold in the world to form si basis on which to issue sufficient money to meet the business requirements. But Cleveland and Stovonson, if elected, will oppose the further purchase or coinage of silver, recommending the calling in and destroying of all outstanding greenbacks, tho establishment of froo trade and worthless stato banks, all of which England wishes to seo dono in this country, as that would give hor control over prices for our farm products through hor control over tho price of silver. Tho result will bo tho Hooding of our markets with products of hor pauper labor, the closing of our factories and workshops, tho impoverishment of their employes anil the disgraco of ourj currency, all of which would be in her interest. Whatever elso tho republican party may havo done, it never yet made, nor indorsed any of theso unpatriotic, un-Amorican and absurd propositions." Mr. Jones lias prepared a chart showing tho iniluenco of fluctuations in the price of silver upon wheat and cotton. "What is Ihu effect on corn?" was asked. ••Iowa is now tho greatest corn pro ducing stato in tho union. Its averivgo production during Mr. Cleveland's administration was about 225,000,000 bushels a year and during Mr. Harrison's ter.v lias been about 275,000,000 bushels per year, yet notwithstanding this largo increaso in production and the very low price for corn in 1889, its average price in farmers hands lias advanced fully 7 cents per bushel during Mr. Harrison's term over prevailing prices during the four years under Mr. Cleveland. This ndvanco ot cents a bushel on tho average yearly crop of 275,000,000 bushels of corn raised in Iowa during tho past four yoars has put an average of $19,225,000 por year, and if present prices for thu crop of 1892 are continued will put over §77,000,000 more money into tho pockets of Iowa farmers for thoir corn crops under Mr. Harrison's administration than thoy would havo received for like crops at average prevailing prices during tho four years under Mr. Clove- land. These figuros are based on official reports rondo by tho United States dopurtmont of agriculture and tho United Stales bureau of statistics. Tho low prices llial prevailed in 1889 woro caused by excessively largo crops that year and by a democratic house of representatives leaving the tinimcos of ihu country in such a sluipo that tho incoming administration was powerless to give relief until the passage of the silver act ofJulv 14,1890, which added S54,000,000 por year to our vol unio of money and tlioreby immediately advanced prices and gave lifo to business. Mr. Cleveland's recommendations to congress to stop tho further purchase or coinage of silver and to call in and destroy all outstanding greenbacks caused a decline of over i)0 cents per bushel on wheat and 2 cents por pound on cotton in all tho markets of tho world and nearly a liko decline in pi'i' cos for corn, provisions and dairy products us oomparcd wiUi their average pricos for tho preceding twelvo yours, which loss foil moro heavily on tho farmers of Iowa than on any liko numbor of people in tho world bocauso thoj raise moro of Iho products that woro affected by suoh policies and rocom- motidations. Thoroforo, tho question of most importation to tho voters of this sta'o at this timo is whether thoy can afford to soo Grovor Cleveland, when ho onoo brought suoh distress fo thoir doors, again elected prosidont." "Did you altoim the Omaha convon Uon?" "Yos, but took no part, in its proceedings. I know Gun, Weaver very well and took as much intorost in his canvass of 1880 as any one. Ho oalled on mo immediately after my arrival at Omaha when I told him that I should not act as a dologato, nor assume any responsibility that would deprive mo of tho privilege of'opposing Grovor Clove laud unless in his letter of acceptance ho should clearly manifest a change in his viows and opinions as expressed lu his message to congress when he was president. Therefore, 1 took no active part in this campaign until after that lottor was mado publiu. In which ho says; 'My vooord as a public servant leavos no excuse for niisunduratandin my belief and position on the questions which are now submitted to Uio voters of tho land for their decision. 1 Aftorjthntslaloniont I could no longor Ivoop silent, and havo devoted myself actively to placing suoh facts and llg- uros boforo Iho wealth producers of tbh country as will giro them suoh roliublo Information regarding Ills voo­ ord as will enable thorn to oast their yolos Intelligently.
