cept the nomination of the Bed Oak Whether he choses to do so or not he has certainly said nothing up to the present to shed light on the state of his feelings in this A New York spiritualist has recalled Kemmler from the shades to catechise him on the subject of death by electri The evidence of the spook was the effect that electrocution is a painless process and that in Kemmlers case death

large as the Ninth district and a good deal make a careful review of the facts re cently thrust into general observation The price of corn away up and going higher and everything else raised on the farm climbing up the golden stairs reflects no credit on the Democratic To adopt the Democratic way of reasoning there are good times and good prices because all branches of the administration are in the hands of the right liemember the fate of the That organization courted death by go ing into politics and death The Farmers Alliance sprang into existence with the purpose of avoiding suicide by holding aloef from all such dangerous It is unfortunate that the Ashby crowd is attempting to lug the Farmers Alliance into the tail of the Democratic procession this The Des Moines river settlers it ap pears are to have another An appeal has been ordered by the attor ney general to the supreme and it is claimed by the settlers that they will be able to present their side of the case entirely on new ground that has not hitherto been Great credit is given to Senator Congress man Dolliver and Attorney General Stone for this The Nonpareil is having a good deal to say these days about the rich grow ing richer and the poor growing The statement is one which rolls glibly from the and has the sophistical sound of an old There are greater opportunities for a poor man to make a fortune today than there ever has been Thousands of them will be the rich men of tomor In spite of a few large fortunes authentic statistics go to show that the distribution of wealth was never more nearly equal than it is at the present A Washington dispatch of the 14th says The nomination of Jude Heed by the lied Oak convention was a surprise to the His desk in the house has been surrounded all day by members who have offered their congratulations and urged the judge to reconsider his determination to retire from public The way the nomination without an effort on his own partf and with no wish on his part to take the burdens of the office for a second together with the pressure brought to bear upon him by his colleagues and associates will probably result iu his and nobody doubts that he will be reelected by an increased There is a politician out at Council Bluffs who is a bad man in Democratic and who is said to have fixed his ambition on the congressional nomination of his paity in a calculating sort of a His name is Tom and he has never been mainly for the rea son that he has always been on the Democratic county ticket of Pottawat tamie The friends of Judge Willard should watch that Sow mans Council Bluffs friends are figur ing to give him the nomination if he is not seized with an attack of discretion before the fatal day rolls The department of state at Washing ton has received an interesting report from William communia agent of the United States at II uddersi on pauperism in free iratle Smith says The most remarkable feature oftlie poor law inspector of Lancashire ty is that while the march of pauperism is held pretty well in the prog ress of lunacy appears to be spreading i with startling In 1880 there i were lunatics in Lancashire conn while in 1890 the

ALLISON ON THE 8IL VER BILL Senator Allison regards the newsil ver coinage law as one of the most im portant pieces of legislation we hav had for many years and expresses th following views 1 have not heard a single complain against the proposed operation of th new silver coinage I think all o my constituents are thoroughly pleasec with and that it will result in mucl good to the business interests of th It will undoubtedly give th farmers higher prices for iheir pro ducts and operate greatly to the ad vantage of as an advancement o prices for what we sell always carriei with it an increase of wages to thi laborer and The talk abou stopping coinage under the operation of the law is a Democratic movemen to prejudice the There wil be no cessation of coinage as long as there is any demand for silver dollars and whenever coinage stops the pur chase of bullion will continue just the and the issuance of certificates upon the depoit of the bullion will con tinue just the same as though the coin age was going If there is no demand for silver by the business interests of the country there is no use to continue am it is far better to buy the bullion and pile it up in the treasury and at the mints for the redemption of the certifi cates and give material for the mints to work upon when the silver is wantec for Those who know nothing about the practical operations of a silver coinage of course be prejudiced against it by the an nouncement that coinage is to cease after a certain Naturally the in ference isithat there is to be a contrac tion of the There is to be coinage whenever the demands of the people suggest it and whenever the money is wanted for 11 would be unwise and impolitic and bad financial management to continue the coinage if the silver is not The business interests of the country will never demand silver for circulation and find the government unable to furnish it I think the new coinage law is one of the most important piece of legislation we have had in many and I think it will help us on to renewed What purports to be an interview with Frank Daly on the subject of the congressional situation was pub lished in the Council Bluffs Globe a few days It was evidently writ ten by the Globes snake reporter in a fit of delerium tremens and Dalys name inserted because he happened to attend the Red Oak convention and hap pened to be pointed out to the Globes romancer as the clerk of Cass In the interview he is made to say a great deal about the mistakes of Judge Reed in apportioning the Our genial neighbor down the is described as a one armed and many other statements made which give the on its the character of an utter These coupled with the fact that Daly did not see the Globe reporter at Red much less t be inter viewed by would seem to indicate that the campaign has opened early in the Such fakes are deserving of cordial The annual reunion of tke Floyd County Veterans association is to be held at Marble August and numerous were made

solidly for Reedfrom the The Montgomery delegation which went into tke convention with Wilson divided on the eighth ballot and gave Reed five votes and so continued untilthe last Pottawattamie county on the 109th ballot threw its full to Reed and with the aid of Gutbrie and Harrison Reeds vote was run up to one more than enough to Adair and Audubon voted on every ballot for Wilson The convention was a harmonious Short addresses were made by temporary chairman Clayibn and Steadman as perknanent Walter thp riorni nee of the recent judicial convention to sue seed Judge made a very forcible five minutes Judge Sapp and Silas Wilson were both called before the The oratory was all of a high A i ringing platform was Wilson can suffer defeat without giving in to a trace of He had the field to Against the combined strength of all tion his fight was gallantly His home delegation loyally and his outside strength was not behind In the earnestness with which it adhered to him through one of the longest contests the Ninth district has ever Wilsons strength with the people is worthy the honest pride of any i The nominee of the convention is so well known as a judge and his course in congress has won him such conspic uous recognition as a that he can receive the endorsement of his party without It devolved on Cass county to move to make Judge Reeds nomination It should be the pleasure ofevery Ninth district Republican to aid in every way to swell the majority by jvhich Judge Reed will be reelected The following platform of prin ciples was adopted the republicans of ttte ninth con gressional district of jin conven tion assembled do adopt following That we reaffirm and again ndorse the last national With no less force do they express what every voter must conceded to be a definite outline of pure and patriotic THE NECESSITY FOR Moines Register Every Iowa Republican should settle down to earn est work for party success at the No vember The Democrats are making a desperate effort to combine all the opposition to Republicanism on one Failing in they will then work to have as many tickets placed in the field as with Democratic stool pigeons to work them up and Cobden club funds to pay all When the election day ar rives all the Democratic stool pigeons who have worked throughout the cam paign in the interest of socalled alli third greenback and all other will vote the Democratic ticket and leave their dupes to hold their side issue bags for next years snipes The fight is on for supremacy in and every Republican in the state should promptly realize the great danger to state and national There is no time to to nurse old or to feel Close up the ranks all along the Look up those who have been consorting with the enemy for a year or two past and see if they cannot be regained to The indifferent were largely responsible for last years par tial Get them roused np to ac tive effort during this falls campaign without The Cobden clubs of England and America have joined in with the breweries and the Democratic party in this state to make a desperate effort to carry Iowa and elect a majority of the Hawkeye congressmen this Money has been flowing into the Democratic treasury from the sources named for several Democratic papers are to be sent to the address of all Republi cans whom the local committeefthink can be influenced against their This work began last May and all the Democratic papers now being sent to Republican voters are credited up to These papers are paid for by the funds contributed by the Cobden clubs The Leader has been and is still being quite largely sent out in this and all the papers sent out from that office on the Cobdeu club and brewery orders are still being credited to It is stated nearly the whole of the Calvin Brice and other New York members of the Cobden club subscribed toward carrying Iowa for Democracy has been paid over to the in payment for the which the pro prietors pf that paper are now sending out to Republicans whose votes the local Democratic committee think can be influenced against This is not a political rumor but an endorse and we also cordially endorse the recent platform adopted by the republicans of IowaJf That we cordially endorse and ap prove the efforts of in in passage of the new silver law and pledge the nominee of this convention whenever it becomes xpedient or the wants pf the country and people demand itjto further vote and work for such additional legislation as may be necessary tj maintain a bi metalic standard and utilize as money he entire gold and silver product ot the United Always keeping in view the idea and principle of protection to American labor and American we de mand that the farnwjs shall have the same rights and privileges for his pro ducts under the taris law that is ac orded to the products of the manu and we send greetings to James Blaine in his efforts to estab ish reciprocity relations between other nations and our own and we cordially endorse and approve of the steps al ready taked to establish better trade re ations between those countries and That we are unalterably opposed all trusts and whether of foreign or domestic and we demand and insist upon such egislation by congress at once as will effectually prohibit the same in the uture and bring to an immediate ter mination all existing infractions of the mnciples herein set That we not only favor laws in owa for a pure ballot and a fair tut also urge the passage of a national aw which shall guarantee to the humb ast citizen the right to cast his ballot a and to have it counted as That we recognize the veterans of lie Union army as the survivors of hose whose bravery saved the country rom a democratic and we mphatically approve the pension legis ation of the present congress and vould rather favor an increase than a eduction of the liberal provision al ady made for the welfare of the coun rys honored and disabled A more perfect series of words which address themselves to the est judgment and conscience of the actual which can be substantiated at nearly every postofnce in The object of all this expenditure of money is to elect as many Democratic and In dependent members of congress in Iowa as arid thus secure a majority in the national house in favor of the principles of the Cobden Money and a still hunt are to be the Democratic methods of this It is high time that the Republicans of Iowa were fully aroused as to the great danger of a sluggish The old Republi can League clubs should be promptly the campaign work thoroughly systematized in every

Reed was the first choice of a In the face of his declaration that he did not desire a renomination and that the duties of a congressman were so incongenial to him that he pre ferred to retire if he

Shelby and Mills with a full recogni tion of his attitude and without solici tation from presented his name to the convention and continued loyally to his support for one hundred and nine with the pleasure finally of seeing their choice the choice of the The very nature of tha convention made any other nomi nation And while Judge Reed was the first preference of an in considerable minority he was the un doubted second choice of a large ma jority of the Had he him self not sought to bring his congres1 sional career to a close he would have received his party indorsement by ac1 There would have been no j candidates to contest the nomination with i Judge Reeds course in congress has been such as to win him prominent As a member of the house judiciary the part which he has taken in the important legislation of the present congress rarely falls to the portion of a new Iowa has him to thank mor than any other member that the reig of the original package doctrine of th supreme court has been cut short earl in its career of Th house was manifestly opposed to th Wilson Had its passage bee forced when it came from the senat its issue would have been more thai It was at a very critica stage of this legislation that Judg Reeds substitute was taken As suming the management of the origi nal package legislation in the house h manifested a capacity for leadershi which has received national recogni activity and influence in giving the country its present pension law landmarks in a recon which our the avoid with studious care in the campaign which they have already started against him through their district or gan at Council The mistake that Judge Reed has made find a counterpart in the case of nearly every other Republican member of congress If they furnish an argument one wa or another it is to call attention to nee essary changes in the civil service ad The distribution ot fed eral patronage would suffer in no re spect and would lead to many good re suits

when he retiree from a position oh the supreme bench to enter the congressional unite to make him a strong His second as did his came to him without his The strength of Judge Reed with the people is a fact that goes without the THE AMERICAN HOG There was at one time a feeling in as well as in Germany and that the meat products of the United not having been submit ted to government inspection before leaving this were not sure to be wholesome and European dealers so far encouraged the notion that it became no well informed European can retain any such The wholesomeness of our meat products has been proved over and over and any legisla tion directed agaiust them can no long er have for its excuse the alleged possi bility of the existence of disease germs in the In July senate passed a resolu

correspondence has been and it is very interest ng Minister Whitelaw Reid las presented the case of the United States with consummate ability and Reid points out to the French government that the French Academy of Medicine long ago pronounced American pork to be wholesome that at the Paris Exposition of last the highest honor was and that after that award there was an at Reids own sug by a committee of French ex whose report was In face of these facts it cannot possibly be contended that the prohibition has any reason for existence in the character of the products Our Minister goes on to say that he does not argue against a high duty on but against its absolute prohibi he shows that a lower duty would bring in more reve and that a more extensive use of this American product would conduce to the welfare of the French people and more especially of those classes for which a wise government always cher ishes the most solicitous In conclusion Reid hints at the possibility of a retaliatory prohibition on French wines by this but does not at all press that preferr he to leave the matter to French good French justice and French Whatever be the outcome of these diplomatic
