J ' leas  county liave set a good " ''"Me to her neighbors in this re-  tiih occupation of many politicians, of high and low degree, seems to be;to invent and circulate campaign lies against, their opponents, and against candidates that have manly independence enough to entertain views of their own in harmony with the interests of the people and that do not happen to accord with the wishes of these gentry, who arrogate to themselves the right to rule in local and state politics and dole out. the lucrative and honorable oflicial positions among themselves and their friends as suits their pleasure.  Some of these aspiring chaps fur'-et thef act that such a course is very certain to prove a boomerang that will recoil upon themselves sooner or later. This unrestrained gratification of personal spleen is a dangerous business, as there are always plenty of men to remember those who indulge it when in after years their aspirations for public lavo- furnish the opportunity. The only proper and manly course, especially for those who have political aspirations, is tjiat of an honorable and hearty acquiescence mi the decision of the tribunal to which !hev have voluntarily submitted their cause.  Tin; rush of immigration not only continues but'increases. One dav n-cenily iUKIH steerage passengers landed at Castle Garden. New York, being the largest number ever received in one day. The arrivals of the week were in numbers more than (ion!.le the entire population of Lucas county. These people come from every land; from far countries where, the only form el u'overnnient is despotism and the onh remedy for evils rebellion, assassina :ion and the torch. Criminals and lunatics come in every ship. The faciei-ies and mills in the eastern states arc filled with workmen who do not spe;.' our language, and the •'American pre tected laborer" is a myth to a large extent.

This is no time I'm following the beck of personal influence to the detriment of the cause of the people vs. the corporations now b"iii!>' tried, (live us jurors of clean hands and a (dean anti-mononoh record to determine the great questions at. issue.  A Sensible Suggestion.  The following suggestion from a lies Moines letter to the Sioux county Ih r-ahl is well worthy of consideration and adoption, and in theinterest of fairness, common decency and the good of the party we hope the press of the state will lake up the question and insist upon the adoption of some such rule as the one suggested. The ext ract is as follows:  "As the time will soon be at hand for the Republican State Convention, it is not too ear.lv to suggest a rule, that if adopted would tend to bring more order and dignity into the deliberations of such bodies. A rule prevails m t he national republican convention that is worthy of emulation. It is to the effect that no votes can be changed after they are once announced except to verily them. Such a rule would stop the changing of notes by counties arterthe roll is called, a practice winch of ten stampedes what- should be an orderly assembly for deliberative business, into a perfect pandemonium. A rule should be adopted of this kind, as it is often the case that the real will of the convention is frustrated by a few sharp changes made after a roll call and before the vote is announced. Counties should be permitted to verify a vote er roneously announced by but once' fairly given it for that ballot."  10 x a to 11 Shkumax delivered an address to the people of Illinois June 1st, in which lie reviewed the history of the two leading parties of the nation in a masterly manner, of which the inter Ocean says:  "There has never been, as we take it, a more complete and condensed vindication of i he past or a more inspiring prediction of the future of Republicanism than i; to be found in Senator Sherman's speech."  We should be glad to place the whole address before our readers but want of space forbids. We make the, following extract from his closing remarks, in which he outlines the future aims and purposes of the Hepubliean party, and reaches the conclusion that it is the only party that is calculated to carry out the wishes and d, mands of the people. In conclusion lie, says:  I do not a.-ree with Mr. Curtis, of New Vork v.-hen lie says in a recent speech "tlmt the .'-Teat parties are now mainly the shadows of ■-'■cat names and represent no dctinite and distinct policy npou any of the exist in,-r questions." nor when he say* the Itopuhlican party "was organized wliol.v to resist the curse of Slavery." Hut I do ajrree with him when he says, "I am prouder of nothing than of my connection with that party which, it seems to me. has done  .MilKi: !■'() I { lir.MAN (aniacrv and for every popular interest than any other party ill the history of the KnirMsh speaking race." Our party has not only grappled with the curse of slavery, but: it has grappled every question of public policy within the latst i wenty-live years, and always in t lie spirit Of liberty, union and strength. It may not in all respects have met f he wishes of Mr. Curtis, but his ciiioiiy places it fui- beyond that of any ot her party.  Let no man be misled into the conclusion that all tin- vile! ¡--sues dividing the two piit'i :e-i l:-:-ve i <-,.|> settled. There are many I h i nt i..v, ¡:ei:e;;roi t lie heart of t he American people. They demand a free ballet, a fair ■.-on mI. ::i!t| corrcci r<; irr,s.

The shadows and prejudices of ic past, should be lifted by the lights of modern civili/.ntion, and the American people should feel 1 hat, they are not citizens of mere Slates or local communities, but of a yreat and powerful mil ion. The workin.l'inan in every condition and employment of life should lie encouraged, protected and assisted by every reasonable measure to advancc his condit ion and to open up to him. by honest labor and enterprise, all the avenues of wealth and lienor. Kvery measun should be adopted that will (end to restore to our •oiiiii-.'-rce the carymir trade of the world to the UM(.|-Mi'.'."t ends of the earth. A foreign policy should be ailopteu u hich. while lirnily maintaining t he ri-ht.- of an American cit i/.en wherever his wandering iooisicps may h ad him, yet will seek the advantages of a state of peace to be maintained by an honorable, cor dial and friendly intercourse.  If I have corrcci ly staled the aims and tendencies of the two parties the liepublican party is the only one titled to carry out: such a policy. Our adversaries may brood over the dead past and mourn 1 he decay of Confederate ideas: but Republicans hail with unbounded satisfaction every advance of our country in strength and power at home and abroad, conscious that this Is consistent with the full power of stale, county, end local sovereignty, reaching to every family and homestead in Hie land. We brood over 110 lost cause, bm look forward hopefully to reap for future u-encrat ions the jJTeat benefits conferred by the sacrifices and services of our patriot soldiers in the preservation of the Ciilon and the abolition of slavery.  it is said that the Hepubliean party had been !,),,„• j,, power. Our Democratic friends wanted to  dxaminf, tim books. They wanted to turn the rascals out. What rascals have they found in? What wron- or peculation have they found in the books: I can with confidence and pride say to you that no administration of this or any Government has been more  fraud or peculation than the Republican ail-ministration  included. The lb-publican party has justified itself in war and peace, in this country that can patriotic, liberty-loving business adniinist rat ioi  lists this year and next year proud of its record wilh no apologies ,-„ male-, no crimes to repent of, no people deprived by it of their ri"hts It lias stood the test, or defeat and retirement with unquestioninfr acquiescence . thoui''h it was brought, about by crime. It has  a chairman, j  l!ljr i v  trcatcil 1'he Democratic President, who should stand j \ raUwi{ pubUc  approval only as he as re  sisted his party. It, will af.vain appeal to the suffrages of the lieople, asking only an honest | vote and a fair count., and referrinii to its j record in the past, as the best evidence it can | pivot hat it will maintain in the future the I honor of our country abroad, develop the re-I sources of our people at home, and secure all, so far as it can, in the full and equal enjoy-ment of the riii-lits and privileges of American citizens.  free from corruption, ic Republican adirimi Lincoln to Arthur, both t party has just ilicd It is the only party five you a National, fraud-hating-, and It, enters into the  Glorying in Grime.  The Chariton Democrat tries to show, by ¡i long and labored editorial, filled with figures, that the drug stores of that, place ¡ire selling more intoxicating liquors than their ten saloons sold before prohibition went into effect. We cannot imagine why any paper should not only publish to the worpl, but glory in the fact, that any one of the laws of the Stale is habitually disregadred by the citizens of its town. Does the contract bet ween the Democraric party ¡tnd the saloon keepers require that Democratic papers should brand the druggists of their town as criminals and charge the majority of their citizens with participation in their crime? •Such editorials may be pleasing to the ex-saloon-keepers but we are satisfied 'hat f 11 e majority, ¡it least of the better element of the Democratic party are disgusted with the alliance, with the saloons and would, break it if tliev '■mild. Candid Democrats cannot help seeing that prohibition has in a great measure decreased drunkenness and ''isorder and tlmt the people are vastly belter off than under the old regime. The time will yet come, though perhaps Kot just yet, when the Democratic party will have to drop the saloon or be for ever buried under popular disfavor. — Leon .Journal.

A few motif lis ago it "was discovered h;t! Iowa soldiers have not had a personal represenlaf ion in t he C. S. Sen-id e. it mav appear strange to many that the .H/tjislcr did not, make the discovery sooner. [lad if been known our years a<ro the mistake might have been corrected then, for the fiepubli-cans of iowa are not ungrateful. Iin 1 it seems Unit Ibis discovery has be'—  • ■■ .......;.,..! noooin of one  Hepburn—Col. Hepburn, of Ciarinda. As Mr. Hepburn has assumed different characters at different, times and epochs, if is very desirable to know which of the characters is (lie candidate fori'. S. Senator. In IKTii Hepburn was the most eloquent defame] of on the [owa platform. In 1S7S he became a Republican and is likely to remain a Republican ¡is long ¡is (be party stands by Hepburn: but tin; party Ceneral Grant and the' Republican party has found Uepburnism very expensive. Hepburn is the only Republican in the House of Heprcsental ives with sufficient railroad brass to make war on the only inter-slafe commerce bill designed 'o protect I he, people ol! Iowa. Jn his ¡•iterest. of the railway monopolies, the nonpartisan Ciilloni bill resolutions were passed by the low;! General Assembly. and a similar resolution smuggled through the Republican eonveu-iionof'SU. So far the party stood by Hepburn, and it has found Hepburn's '¡•¡endshiii more detrimental than his hatred.  Last winter Congressman Hepburn was a strong advocate of the Conference bill. It was Imped that, he had changed again and intended hereafter to support the people of Iowa against the monopolies that are repressing the energies of Iowa; but his letter pub-lished in last week's Journal, is incon-trovertable evidence that it, is the railroad lawyer that is now a candidate for the U.S. Senate-not Hepburn the Union soldier.  Tlmt let ter exhibits Hepburn in (lie role of a villainous conspirator. Tim railway attorney. .Judge McDill. wlple holding oiliee of railway coinmiss' /ler. used his whole influence and r >ver to enlarge the dominion of the railroad kings over the, people of Iowa. With (he efficient co-operation of Commissioner Dey, his Democratic colleagtu and the leaders of the Democratic party he has been successful in preventing much needed legislation and in producing a division in the Republican party—most evident in their own con gressional district. This letter reveals conspirator Hepburn inducing the whole 'Republican delegation in Con grcss to sign a letter urging Governor Larrabee to perform an act that would have- utterly demoralized the Republican party in Iowa.  This is the Hepburn l'or whoni'tlie nominations of this state, for senators and representatives is to be made this simi-, n( , r _aU in the name of the Union soldier—journal of Commerce. Rep.  J. C.
