But the manner in which judgment was passed upon him seems as arbitrary. Unwarranted, and dangerous as any J Usurpation of power against which the people have arisen since ' the days of jKthg John. When A United States judge can go to the length of ordering men not to quit work for a certain corporation, as was done in one instance, and then, if they do exercise their undeniable right to quit when they please, can have them called up for contempt of the court's order and can send them to prison without a trial by jury, the United States Is not far removed from otd latf, fte fBakerfl of lb.6 Bttd6atrtfedly had ift mlfid td Ifaffie ft .staMe which Would ftflable fcbwspaJrerS to eoiftpete for couflty printing afld be pfbleeted from padded lists. *he law they framed Is ample to do this if the pfopefr meaning is given to the words used.

A fair cphnot be successfully Wn wheh nobody in particular pays gateage or entrance fees. will be no free distribution of complifnen- laries this fall if a state fair is held. The association also has done a wise thing in having ties Molnes arrange to take on interest In the fair. Des Moines gets a big yearly revenue out of the state fairs and should help guarantee receipts. f*£ the methods of Russian autocracy. The discrimination practiced marks the outrage of this ("government by Injunction." All the evidence goes to show that Pullman and the board of railway managers wore guilty in the beginning of bringing; on the whole trouble. But what United States judge presumed to order them to do or not to anything on penwlty of going to jail for contempt? And what judge would dare send Pullman to Jail as Debs was sent to jail? Government by injunction is government for the strong and the wealthy. The jury system is the bull wark of freedom today just as it was hundreds of years ago. Wilkes was no more entitled to public-esteem in his day than Debs Is now. But over Wilkes one of the great battles of civil liberty was fought, and the rights of juries were established. Any infringement of those rights,- whether Debs or some other incendiary be the victim, is an innovation to be resisted with vigor. Debs will undoubtedly be the last man to go to prison in this country for a civil offense without a fair trial and conviction by his peers. MUST BE The longer the various proposed methods for getting a paper money system of stability are discussed, the more evident it becomes that the only solution of the money question lies in the complete reinstatement of silver. J. S. Clarkson in a recent interview in the Des Molnes Capital voices this sentiment with vigor. He soys the silver issue is the coming issue in politics and adds: "I am decidedly in favor of « bi-metallic standard, and believe not only in the free coinage of silver, but I do not believe that congress had any right whatever to demonetize it. It is just as essential as gold as a circulating medium. No man, I care not how eminent, need tell me, with the ex- Lafe Young ngrees to take $100 of state fair tickets for the Capital if Des Molnes will make up the $10,000 asked, and saj nothing about "Cofflps." THE Des Moines Will agree to forego the comps to help along, BONA FIDE SUBSCmUEUS. Clay county is having its annual squabble over the county printing, and the question there seems to be the one THE UPPER DES MOINES raised in Kos- Buth some years ago. 'The News does not have one of the two highest lists of names. But it contests the right of its competitors to the printing on the ground that they have given away papers to swell their lists. In the last contest in which THE UPPER DES MOINES participated it proved that the Bepublican had taken subscribers for the purpose of swelling its list at 75 cents, §1, and $1.25 a year, and claimed that these were not bona fide subscribers. The board ruled otherwise, in effect that anyone taking the paper a year even if he pays nothing for it is a bona fide subscriber in the eye of the law. The Clay county board do not go to this length but hold that subscribers must pay "a consideration," It seemed perfectly plain to THE UPPER DES MOINISS at the time of its contest, and does now, that neither of these decisions is correct, but after paying over half the county work amounted to ^ Jn contests for two years, it did not care to pursue the matter further for the sole gratification there would be in establishing- a law point. If "bona fide" means anything as used in the ,«tftt«te on county printing it means jn.pre than that subscribers must take the paper and pay something for it, a " yearly subscriber" covers all that. A "bona tide yearly subscriber" is one lybo npt only takes the paper and pays |ipjav*thlng fop it, but is one who takes foe it what everyone else regular ordinary course of Jn other .wprds the full adver. pe, This is the meaning of pectation I will be convinced, that the commerce of the world can be conducted upon a gold basis when commerce is increasing many fold every year while the production of gold, if increasing at all Is doing BO almost imperceptibly." All the pottering done by Cleveland and Carlisle over a paper currency is mere cob house building. So long as a paper currency is to be kept redeemable in gold it makes no difference how it is issued it will always be unsafe, unstable, and deceptive. There is not gold enough in the United States nor in the world to furnish the foundation for a stable money system. To remain oblivious to this fact is to simply blunder ahead from one panic to another. Any kind of credit passes for money when business booms and confidence prevails. But the momentdoubt enters then legal tender, actual money, is all that passes, and the gold of the world would not do the business of any two leading commercial nations, nor furnish the basis for a safe currency for any four leading commercial nations, assuming that a government should keep as heavy a reserve as a well conducted bank, at such times. Silver is as good a money metal as gold. It is worthless for much of anything else. It is one of the chief products of the United States. It will make a sufficient money supply to float the currency needed for our business. With it and gold as a reserve there will be no need of state banks or any other banks of issue, the greenback will be the best dollar wo have. Rernonetiza- tion of silver will be the issue in two years. ^ Peter A. Dey retires from the railway commission after 15 years service. Ho wus appointed first by Gov. Gear. The government crop report shows that corn did not hold its own in 1894. In fact it was at the low ebb, the crop of 1881 being the only one In 18 years as poor. Only 02,882,000 bushels of good corn were raised on 70,000,000 acres planted. Northern Iowa ought to feel well satisfied. The crop here averaged at least 20 bushels. The following fable is published for the benefit of the business man who gives up pushing because 1895 opens rather gloomily; "Two frogs found themselves in a pall of milk and they could not jump out. One of them was for giving up, and said to the other, 'Good-bye; I sink, I die.' Said his mate, 'Brace up, you duffer; keep a jumping and see what turns up. 1 So they kept jumping up and down all night and by morning had so churned the milk that it turned to butter and they jumped off the butter to the ground." The Muscatlne Journal says that the moral Is to "keep Jumping." Everybody advertises and pushes when the boom is on. The shrewd man "keeps jumping" when the crowd is tired out. +44H- Work of taking the state census be- ging the 20th of this month and must bo completed by June 1. Township assessors will have this duty to perform. They make out their reports to the county auditor who in turn sends them to the secretary of state. •f-f-h The Rolfe Reveille is entitled to brag because Pocahontas leads all the counties of the state in the numoer of trees on the school grounds, The railway commissioners have decided to deny the petition of the companies for higher local freight rates. Commissioners Luke and Perkins unite in the decision, while Mr. Dey flies a minority report. The majority opinion is based upon the failure of the railways to furnish evi- denco to support their claim, and especially upon their failure to comply with the Iowa law and make such reports of their business as will enable the commissioners to know what is and what is not a remunerative rate, Mr, Dey also criticizes the companies for not making proper reports and says that he believes that the legislature should enact statutes stringent enough to secure such reports. Mr. Dey says that his belief that the local rates should be raised is the result of his own observation and figuring rather than of any showing of merit made by the companies. applied to all transac- The Sftle. of a note or piece of leas thftfl its yalue js % tof *Wf?e» the parties, hut Jf interests to protect tnqwipfs whether A C.

Senator Allison made an exceptionally vigorous speech in the senate Monday demanding that the democrats provide some suflloient means of raising revenue. He sayg that we are drifting jnto bankruptcy for want of enpugh money to pay expenses. Congress shortly adjourns for-* year, The national expenses far exceed the receipts and will continue to if nothing is done. Congressman Updegraff says that Gov. Larrabeo's book on railways is' used as a text book in Vassar college. Col. Pete Hepburn's sound talk on gold payments in congress was followed by an equally sound one by J. F. Lacey, another able Iowa member, on the greenbacks. Mr, Lacey said: "The people have confidence in this money. A reasonable amount of it can be retained, and has been retained, in actual circulation without danger, without loss, and no paper money has ever been so popular with the masses of the people." 1111 The Slate Register wants the Upper Des Moines Editorial association to come to Des Moines some time and says it is "perhaps the most successful association of its kind in Iowa." The Sioux City Journal says the Upper Des Moines association is " one of the most energetic and influential press associations in the west and its meetings are always well attended and proflta- able to those attending." •H-M- Sara Clark says that inside of ten years B. G. Cousins of the Cedar Rapids district will be as big a man in politics as Tom Reed is today. At the time this item appealed it was announced that C. N. Hunt would begin a series of revivals at Mason City, and that he is one of the rising evangelists of this country. Hunt and Cousins met in an oratorical contest at Os kaloosa in 1880, Hunt coming out second and Cousins third. Both went to practicing law, Now Cousins is in politics and Hunt in religious work, both in the line of their school boy success, ' •H--H- The indications are that the coming editorial meeting at Nevada will be the best the Upper Des Moinos association has yet held.

F. L. Ranney, secretary of the Lotts Creamery, furnishes a report for the benefit of our readers: The creamery has handled 1,000,000 pounds more milk than in 1893, doing a $26,000 business. The highest price paid was $1.30 for 100 pounds of milk; lowest price, 62 cents. Total amount of milk; 3,080,413 pounds. Total amount of butter, 132,224 pounds. This gives an average of 4.03 pounds of butter to 100 of milk, the average price being 83c for the milk. Total receipts for butter $25,881 01 Expenses of running 2,788 04 Total for patrons 22,883 6~ Cost of making per pound 02 Last March we paid stockholders a 1 dividend of 14 per cent, after setting aside $108 to finish butter maker's house. Business has increased so that this year I expect a dividend of 25 per cent on money invested. This dividend is what the factory earns outside of making up shareholders' milk at lOc per hundred pounds of milk, so you can see there is very little kicking on the part of shareholders. We have sustained a loss of $184 through a bogus commission firm of Chicago. I hope we have learned a lesson and that our neighboring creameries will go slow on these wily fellows soliciting for firms that we do not know to be reliable. F. L. RANNEY, Secretary.

REBATING CYCLONE TAXES. The board have rebated a lot of taxes to cyclone sufferers and are likely to rebate more, which is right. Any man who had property destroyed should ask for a reasonable reduction of his.taxes. The supervisors have no authority to refund taxes paid, which keeps some names off the list. Their authority is section 1273 of the Code, which reads: " The board of supervisors shall have power to rebate in whole or in part the taxes of any person whose buildings, crops, stock, or other property have been destroyed by fire, tornado, or other unavoidable casualty," The following taxes have been abated as an act of equity and not of charity: Alex.

Freeh came down from Bancroft and made such low rates for insurance that he got the county policies. .It seems that he split his commission to do it and the other agents notified the insurance trust, which is fleecing Iowa as no other combination at this Mme, and one company has been forced to rescind its policy and others will likely follow. It costs the county 3 per cent, for 5 years, a high rate, about five times as high as farm insurance. Why does the county insure at all? It is a pretty big company by itself and it ought to be able to take its own risks at such rates. ANOTHER .BOUT WITH THE DOCTORS.

WESLEY, Jan. 15.—A good deal of petty thieving has been going on here for a considerable length of time, but- lately some of them have become so bold that they got caught. Joe Morrison, who arrived hero last fall from South Dakota, was arrested one' day last week for stealing a pair of mittens, from Hugh McCutchin. He plead guilty to the charge and was sent to ' jail in default of the fine of $5 that was imposed on him. Later it was found that McCutchin had boen losing flour from his flour room. Morrison's satchel was searched and the key belonging to McCutchin's flour found, which McCutchin stolen from the door some room says time was- ago. it will over again board' as it now is, come before the Fixma OFFICIAL SALARIES, " The necessity of re-adjusting the recorder's salary' under the now law occasioned an overhauling- of the whole list.
