OAt-KWre IAST leveland allowed the new riiff to tgo'into effect Monday without -*tgwing the hill, Instead he makes publics letter written by him to a .southern representative. In this letter he restates his objections to the new law. 'One sentence is this: •"tUheware:provisions in this bill wMch ore not in line with honest tariff reform, andiit'contains inconsistencies and crudities wtt0h'ought<ndt to appear in tariff laws of any'kind," And'he says again: • •"'Olhere'were, as you and I well know, incidents accompanying the passage of the bill'through congress which made every sincere irefortner unhappy, while influences surrounded 'it in its latter stages and In- terferred with its final construction, which •ought'not be recognized or tolerated in democratic tariff reform councils." The remainder of the letter is devot- ed'to pledging himself to renewed ef- forts'for further tariff changes. By this he destroys the only benefit the new'lawcould possibly have rendered, that'Of doing away with the uncertainty whidh has prevailed for two years, Industries -can adapt themselves in aome'way to any legislation which is , ...certain ;and fixed. But business confidence -will -never be restored in the face •df uncertainty and the threat of immediate -change. The incompetency of the democratic party was never bettei Illustrated than in this campaign to repeal .a law barely yet in force, when themncertainty already undergone has Tjrougfh't the country to the worst atraits iknown since the civil war. CHILLY FOB LOTTIE LANGE. JFor ireasons not stated the Courier failed last week to publish Louie li/ange's appeal to the democrats of this district ito stand by their colors and vote'for a democrat for congress. On the'Contrary it fills a column with a Palo .Mto appeal for votes for Mr. Ba'ken, whose campaign .thus Jar has <ibeen'-based, we understand, upon the inoompetency of the present .democratic administration. The Courier, however, treats Mr. Lange ibetter than most .of his democratic ^brethren of tbe ipress (have, for if it ; does not aid himi't'at least does not wbuse him. The 'Only paper we have -seen which does better than that is Ai Adams' Humboldt Independent. AL 'has not been ;a'democrat all these years for nothing, .and while he does not openly , repudiate Baker, he says that the . .democrats might as well ihave .noini- .nated Bolliver and have .been .done with it Al. says: " We very much question the good policy .of ibhat -convention nominating Mr. Baker. There are plenty of good democrats in *he district -whose democracy is unquestioned that would have been an honor to ttoe nomination and would have honored the convention that should have nominated either of them. The convention undoubtedly would have had a right to endorse J. P. Dolliver had it so willed, and it might periaps have done as well to 'do that as to .do what it did do." There can 'be no question that Mr. Lange is getting cold comfort generally from the democratic papers. But he can lay .one flattering un&tion to his soul as he reflects on the chilly political atmosphere of Northern Iowa, and that is that Henry Watteraon is with him in his etand against bartei<- , ing off all his party stands .for for a few votes againsta, republican. Speaking of the fusion on Gen. Weaver in the Ninth district Mr. Watterson says; "Every democratic vote for a populist is a stab at the democratic party. No man is in any sense a true democrat who can vote for a populist in a congressional election. •The party which merely attempts to defeat eouie other party rather than vindicate its own principles is either without principles or is false to them. If there are any democrats in the Ninth Iowa district it is their duty to try to elect a democrat to congress rather than merely to try to defeat a republican. It is not one whit more to the interest of the democratic party that a republican shall be beaten thau it is that a populist be beaten, and if the democrats of the Ninth Iowa won't do their duty by tbeir party then they should join some party they are willing to do their duty by. They should pot use the democratic party's name and organization in -the interest of toe democratic party's worst enemies. If they persist in such a policy they should Apt be recognized as democrats by the national democracy," CAN THIS BE Al. Adams makes a statement about Mr, Baker's candidacy which deserves investigation, He says that but one delegation favored endorsing Baker in the beginning, and in connection adds » ?§wajpk w, bleb will cause many demo' \ $p p,psn their pyes: ' f lone delegates from Palo ,. ,„_._ ,'Wjmtedpaker, the populist, who ii^iW ftfBwnoing toe defflocratio ' "[euftPPfted." canvass as a populist? . ttot be. stands fop free silver, (tol out Pi i»y» J80WUJF ftbgMMw tariff, demo- we hope that the CotiMef will make it its business id have the record cleaned up.

Henderson in the Third district By its announcement in this paper it will be seen that the State University o: Iowa resumes Its work on the ISth day of September. It Is the leading school in the state—the crowning gloty of our educational system. The chairs of its several departments are filled by professors and teachers selected for their superior fitness for their work. No effort will be spared to promote the wellfare of the student, and we take special pleasure in recommending it without reserve to the attention anc patronage of all who are interested in the acquirement of a collegiate or professional education. Full information as to ex pense and school facilities will be promptly furnished on application. The Iowa school for the deaf at Council Bluffs opens Sept. 13. It is free to al in Iowa of school age, and affords the best facilities. All who know of deaf persons should notify them to write to H. W, Rothert at Council Bluffs. .SPENOBE OAflEP Miss Guata Smith, says the Spencer News, had about twenty turkeys stolen during the encampment and as the boys were seen in that neighborhood late at ntght, or early in the morning, and hac abundance of turkey for dinner next day, the inference was that tho missing turkeys made the feast for the camp. On Friday morning a bill for fourteen dollars was presented for turkeys. The colonel traced the birds to one company and charged the amount to the captain. The company promptly made op the amount and stil thought the birds dirt cheap. This calls to mind another turkey incident that is re lated. About noon a private of Com. pany — came to the colonel's tent bearing a platter neatly covered with a napkin which upon being removed revealed an elegant turkey, done to a finish. This he presented with the compliments of the company, and to the inquiring look of the officer, explained that the bird in attempt- Ing to fly across the camp had struck the electric light wire and broke its fool neck and they could think of no better thing to do with the unfortunate bird than to dress and roast it and present it to their chief, 1 1 1 1 An illustration of the evening-up process is found in an incident of the late camp. A lady living no great distance from the tented field bad missed severa chickens and a day or 'two later was visited by a detail in search -of eggs for which they were prepared to pay. She muiokly re membered that in the hennery were a lot of eggs that had been deserted by an i patient, fickle teddy when the work incubation was tout little more than half done. These she put up, sold and got the money. On arriving at the cook shanty they found the pan on and the grease spit ting hot. A shell was <quickly cracked and the contents dropped into the pan. Instead of an egg, into the bubling lakelet plumped a chicken. The unexpected advent of the embryonic rooster caused great consternation. Oae by one the others were examined and all proved alike. Notwith standing the fondness 'exhibited on many occasions for chickea 'there was something about these that -quite took away the appetite. Perhaps it was the unheard of generosity of furnishing chickens for eggs and at the same price per dozen. As the lady thinks of how «be got even with the foragers the loss of tier poultry does not seem half so heavy. Another case of getting even, though by the use of the golden rule instead of the silver, implicates John Ewlng. Mr, Ewing is a Scotchman, honest as sunlight,' generous even to bis enemies and with a Wealthy good humor that prevents life under any circumstances from becoming a burden. His pasture joined the camp grounds. Several times when Mr. Ewing went to milk he found that some one had lindly performed that little chore for him. A few minutes before the next mealtime Mr. Ewing went out to the nearest tents inking with him a quart of nice fresh milk which he offered to the young man'who came up and ho somewhat reluctantly accepted it. "You live near here?" said ;he young man. "Yes, sir." "You keep a cow?" "Yes." " It's a red cow, is it?" Right again." "She has short teats?" Still in the right." " Say, I've milked ;hat cow several times; let me pay you for this milk," "Not a cent, sir. Now, /he cow is there all tbe time and you can lelp yourself to milk whenever you choose, >ut if I get enough I shall bring you over a quart a day anyhow; but not any pay, .haok you, not a cent." "Uncle, I never 'elt so ashamed of myself in all my life. I guess I'll let you do the milking after this." THE MOflTg'S MA0AZINE8.

The rapidly Increasing circulation of Romance shows that lovers of good Short stories appreciate the reduction of its price, and that they recognize its constantly imptwitig literary quality. The September number Offers ten admirable stories for a dime. Its special feature is a group of three stories of journalism, The first of these is B realistic sketch of A newspaper man's career from the clever pen of Hamilton Ormsbee, himself a member of the craft. Several other stories equally good, make up a well balanced and most interesting number. farm says Iff THIS NEIGHBOBHOOD. Mrs. Jas. Marlow of Burt is to get $8 a month pension. A child of Aug.

The Hampton Chronicle referring to the unpleasant features of the Spencer military encampment says of its local company: It may not be generally known, but it is a fact, that upon the return of the company from Sioux City two of its members were dismissed for drunkenness and other unbecoming acts, and it has come to that point when the national guard of Iowa have no use for drunkards or rowdies.

Thftif Attest Leads Up 1 to Many Strange Developments—Sent by judge Caff to the Reform School. Deputy Sheriff Brunson returned Monday morning front Eldora, where he took Irwin McCftll and Lafe Turner to the state reform school Under order of Judge Carr. The boys are 13 and 14 years of age and were captured last Wednesday evening burglarizing Parish & Frise's hardware store. They were brought before 'Squire Clarke, who sent them to Judge Carr at Emmetsburg, Saturday, and he committed them to the school to remain at the discretion of the superintendent. The consent of the parents of both boys was obtained by County Attorney Raymond, they feeling that perhaps a course at the school was the best thing for them, The capture of the boys was purely accidental. Frank Parish had been in the country all day and was returning home between 10 and 11 o'clock with A. H. Paine, stopping a moment to leave something in the store. As he unlocked the door he found the boys behind the show case, the door of which was open, one holding a bag. Turner ran to the rear of the store and as a light was struck jumped through the window they came in at. But Me Call could not get out and was caught. For'several hours an effort was made to get him to tell who was with him, with no avail. He told three different stories, the last one deceiving his father and the officers. But as they were talking someone asked him who was with him before .he entered the store and he said that Turner had been but had gone home. With this clue Deputy Brunson went to Turner's and after a while trapped him into telling that he was in the store with McCall. Then the whole story came out. The boys had broken in the window and were in the store to get a rifle, two revolvers, two knives, and ammunition. This would complete their outfit, and then they were to set out for Canada. While talking to Turner Brunson happened to think of E. L. Tuttle's rifle whick.bad been stolen the week before and told Turner that McCall said he would take him to it. Without a word Turner led the way to the corn field near the Milwaukee track by the river and there dug out the rifle which had been wrapped in paper and buried a foot deep. The rain of Sunday had rusted it badly. This was the other rifle they expected to use on their trip. In the morning J. B. Jones recalled that it was when his son was with Lafe Turner that he had a gold watch and some money stolen, and investiga^ tion brought out another interesting story. The boys had plotted that Turner and Jones Should go swimming, that Turner should lead the way around a bend, and that while they were gone McCall should get the watch and money. No suspicion of how it was done was harbored at the time. Turner had the goods hidden at home and promptly produced them. The next day also brought out all the various plans the hoys had laid. They had taken a boat belonging to Geo. Hohn, and had it hidden in the river bend north of the rifle range pit, one set of oar locks had been taken from Guy Taylor, oars were hidden in the ground, probably Ralph Edmonds', as he has been missing them, and then at the bottoms of various trees in the vicinity were buried, in true dime novel fashion, monkey wrenches, nails, screw-drivers, and tools of all kinds, some in one place and some in another. Gun powder was put in bottles and buried and everything was ready but the stuff they were to get at the hard, ware store. This was to complete their preparations for flight to Canada. The boys when captured were cool, told clever stories to get out of being found out, showed but little feeling at leaving home and going to the school, and except for being with so many strangers, made no objection to the new plan, MB, M'OALL INTERVIEWED, The hoys were attended to Emmetsburg and to Eldora by Fred, McCall, father of one of them, On his return he talked freely of all the events that have transpired. He is pleased to have the boys at the school, says it is all and more than be expected and a credit to tbe state, that Judge Carr after questioning tbe boys hesitated about sending them off, and would not have done 90 bad it not been entirely satisfactory, as be was convinced that tbey were not vicious. He says that bis own. opinion ie that the boye were planning a fqollab escapade, and that while tbey did things which he deeply regrets, ibat there was no vicious or criminal ,ntent on tbeir part, Irwln feaj always ?een affectionate at home and been frank with bis mother, but was easily of ftdvefltftpe, He pl&BUJng a camping jirjp with Wfcboy bad au,d f row that be had, gel teffi of the Youth's Companion, and Mr. McCftll says that in his opinion the stories, while all good in purpose, are very exciting to susceptible boys who love adventure. Mr. and Mrs. MuCall are highly respected in Algono, and all will believe that they, knowing their eon best, are right and that a year at the school will bring htm out ail fight. He is a bright, active, and affectionate boy. It is likely that he is no Worse than the average boy, except that be puts more of the deviltry he thinks of into execution. Thanks are extended by his parents to their friends for tb« aid and sympathy they have had in their trial. STATE FAItt ATTBAOTIONS. Some of the Novelties to lie Enjoyed at Des Molnes Next Week. The state fair opens Friday and continues a week.

The race list is especially large. A new feature will be a Derby day, Friday, Sept. 7, when only running races will be put on. Lovers of running horses can get their fill that day. A THRILLING EVENT. Balloon ascensions and parachute leaps have been a feature of the past. This year the thrilling novelty of a man fired from the mouth of a cannon in mid-air, attached to two balloons, will be given. This feat is one grand to behold and is performed only by Messrs. Stllson and Graves. It is the most wonderfully thrilling novelty of the age. THE LADY RIFLE CHAMPION. . Lillian Cody, who for the past four years has been the leading feature of Cody's (Buffalo Bill's) Wild West Show, In England, and who won such vast applauds from the whole people who saw the show at the world's fair, has been secured by the state fair people, and will give exhibitions of revolver and rifle shots. EXPERT TEA MAKERS. Vincent S. Tissera of Columbo, Ceylon, will be at the state fair for the week beginning Aug. 31 and ending Sept. 7. He is a resident of that country and he will have with him a native of Ceylon who will wear the native costume of that far away land. They will give instructions as to making and selecting tea, and as the Ceylon's are the greatest tea drinkers on earth those who visit the flair will receive valuable instructions in his line. Besides this, Mr. Tissera will give short talks each evening on his country and the people, illustrated by stereoptican views of places and people In and around Columbo and other parts of Ceylon. No person should miss this part of the state fair entertainment. THE SOLDIERS' MONUMENT CEREMONY. The laying of the corner stone of the soldiers' monument, will occur during state fair week.

D.,-Mail, reports as follows: All along the rich valley of the' Minnesota Hver, corn is ruined. We saw thousands of acres that was as dead and dry as though it had been frozen and sun dried. As we left the Minnesota valley at Mankato and began to reach the table lands along the Blue Earth, there was a marked improvement in all crops. As we came further south, crops of all kinds showed up better. Here, in northern Iowa, it is conceded that corn, wjieat and oats will be above the average of the last six years. Recent heavy rains have put new life into every corn field in this part of the state and assure a big corn crop. Small grains are showing a good yield and a superior quality. J, L. Kinmouth tells the same story to tbe Iowa City Republican of what he saw coming from the south: Above Cedar Rapids and from there to Clarion many pieces of corn were brown and farmers were cutting it for fodder, A noticeable feature through here was the entire absence of meadows, Not a haystack was to be seen in all that distance, There appeared to be an unusually large acreage of corn and the balance of the ground bad been in oats, A few patches of late potatoes looked brown, There were also some few fields of beans which looked green ' ' beanies?.

Goes Lame—Turf Notes. E. P« Bircher's "Belltoa" won a face in Hampton Friday in fast time, taking tbree straight heats. The Chicago Tribune gives the heats and time, as follows: Sptctal trotting and pacing, purse 8100. Bellton, br. h,, by Beldeh Boy 7. ....... , i i 1 Ben Effiinert, b. h., by Alcyene ......... 2 3 2 Nathan P., b.g., by Thesian... ......... 3 B 3 Kason. b. H., by Woodford Wllkes.....* 4 4 Tlme-2:30!2!31j 2i26M. In a letter home Mr. Bircher gives the time of the last heat as 2:20i and the last half mile in l;07i, which is very fast. In the 2:45 pacing race "Bellton" behaved badly and could not be made to go steadily. As the race was won in 2:21, however, he was evidently in a very fast class. From Hampton it is the expectation to go to Strawberry Point and Independence before the state fair, where " Bellton" will go in the fair races. Vyzant Badly Driven. In the 2:30 trotting race at Washington Park, Chicago, last week Tuesday, "Vyzant" of Bode was the' favorite. But he was driven much harder than necessary in the first heats and gave out on the third. The Inter Ocean reports the race and says: "In the 2:30 class for trotters a very ordinary field ; of eight came out, and the talent plunged on Vyzant, a big, heavy-boned horse from Iowa, and ignored everything else that looked like a possibility. The horse did have the speed of the party, to such a degree, in fact, that Rossing, his owner and driver, put up a race of which he has no reason to feel proud. Had the son of Bezant been saved and nursed, as he might havo been, the race would have been ended in three heats. On the other hand, after leading all the way for two heats, and winning the first by four lengths and the second by ten, he made tired breaks in third and barely escaped the flag. Nor was he of any further account during the seven heats' required to finish the race." "Vyzant" made the first heat in 2:17i and the second in 2:18. The other heats and the race were won in 2:22. Various Reports About Vyzant. At home, in the Bode Gazette, the following report of " Vyzant's" failure in Chicago is given: Vyzant won first and second heats at Washington Park race track in Chicago on Tuesday. Time 2:17i. In the third heat he cut his front hoof and had to be withdrawn from the race. He got third money — " $225. Had the accident not occurred he had easily won first money. The Chicago Tribune has this item about the matter: W. L. Rossing of Bode, Iowa, who owns Vyzant, declares his horse could have won last Tuesday's 2:30 class race, but for a boot which slipped under his foot in the third heat. Rossing also says that the claim of $400, on which Vyzant was attached, was paid before he started in the race and that the horse was not in pawn or in the sheriff's hands when he trotted. " Charley H" Is Lame. Word comes from Hampton that C. E. Smith will send his horse " Charley H" home and put him on B. F. Smith's farm because of lameness. Training him for the races was too much for his legs. At Hampton he made a mark of 2:29J, which is pretty good time, but he will not go in the races he is entered in. Was Not In It. "Gold Dust Prince" came fourth and fifth in the Hampton races, in which the time was 2:19. He is in too fast a class when he gets with that kind of speed.
