Col. Leper of lite fifty-first Iowa, just tiacjc from Philippines, says: "All tliat is needed is an ag- gressive campaign with plenty of men, and this will b: Kcltlvd in short order. The 1'iiipinos tuubt be thorouhly whipped; that i.-i the 'jnly thing they will appreciate; just now. s tjvery town must be held and war conducted in stern fashion." Col. Loper, it seems to us, may be supposed to know quite as much about the demands of the situation ns any of those vociferous fellows who never saw the Philippines and hardly know wliere they (meaning the Philippines and themselves) "are at." Chairman Weaver of the Republican btate central conunUlej sounds this note of warning which should hear and heed: "The Democrats are going-to bring Bryan bacV into Iowa for a few more SliW-pcr-spcech elTorts to close up their campaign. It win Bryan and free silver in 1SOO, and the people must prepare to meet the same old outfit that they met The best way to make thete preparations is to that every Re- publican vote is cast this year, and then the 'skirmish for the campaign of as Bryan calls the campaign in Iowa this fall, will result in a disastrous defeat for the free silver crowd, which it mow rnaitfiuerading under the cloak of anti-imperialism." FOR RI EN VIAL ELECTIONS. for nearly three months there has appeared in our columns, and those of twenty-one other papers of Iowa, a notice headed, "Proposed Amendment to the Constitution of Iowa." We have seen no discussion of the question the public press; and we doubt whether many readers have even taken .the trouble, to acquaint j with the" contents of the noticei.yet it involves a matter of considerable i interest to alt Iowa citizens. In any event it covers a quesliiu which the people will be called upon to decide at I the coming election, and most cilizi desire to vote intelligently. Put popular language the question would read something like this: "Shall hereafter hold our. state elections biennially instead of every year TEIEC INDHX, years ago, went on recorO in favor of bicuuial elections, and there has occurred nothing since then to change our views on the subject Those who favor the present system do so. probably, it is the present system and they are naturally opposed to change; because they make something out of ft, or because they consider annual campaigns schools of education ami as such worth all they cost. Those who favor the biennial method do so presumably, Lecauae they are not fond of upheavals and frequent political rackets witli one scarcely over before another begins; and because they consider the annual election a heavy burden upon the tax payer, and half of ifa wholly needless burden, in view of the fact that the biennial election, once established, will answer every so f.ir ns supplying- public servants 5s concerned. The Australian ballot system, considering the advertising required under it, the printing and distributing of big billots, etc., is an expensive luxury; and the other necessary expenses of elections are heavier, we think, than people generally realise.
