not best to live and act as if the farmer alone was kingand the faruTTiho only division to take care while In agricultural pursuits high in the has room for growth In her mer cantile and manufacturing There are many interests which have rather been neglected In the and the next legislature should be composed of liberal minded who have more than one ider and the Independence to vote and work for any no matter If not pleasing to one so long as the general welfare of the whole state Is In On second ii seems as if our country cousins have but little cause to Their treatment at the hands of Iowa law makers has been generous and The republican party has ever had its ear near to the mouth of the farm and often times granted this request at the sacrifice of the support and encouragement of bodies of

Philadelphia lawer with all his with the ability of a would find it Impossible to interpret the statute with out running the risk of being successfully One thing which Iowa needs and in this the farmer is as much Interested as the is a new At present we find the law on one subject scattered throughout the entire perhaps in a half a dozen stat utes and it is necessary to have legal ad vice as to what it all means The last for passed what was called an anti monopoly or antitrust yet the remark may be ventured that it was framed without any repard to the requirements for incorporation and did not recognize the fact that Iowa law with reference to the formation of companies and organizitions was as free as the with little pro vision against In fact so loose are the incorporation that the capitalists of other states Incorporate under the laws of obtain a certified copy of their articles and then do busi ness where they although their home office and principal place of businfsi in

are at work In every This is but one Look at our election A study of their inconsistencies and their ontradctions would be profit able to the wouldbe One might go on and add many in entirely to the lack of legal understanding and judge ment of the trainers of It is right to lay all these er rors at the doors of Hie but it is true that we need a little more breath of vision and judicial learn ing in the halls of our law If our good friends intend to run this coming electijn as it best pleases and In several congressional districts we grant they have ample power to do in all kindness and sincerity let us advise them not to nominate the radical and extremists of their num but rather the rational and con servative ones and trust that in some lo cality they may find an honest man with a good share of what for the sake of argument we will call legal grasp all and whose only fault may be He gains becomes and then the ambition of others for aud their ability to control a political
