grangers of Iowa and other Western states Are intelligent they work but they get time enough to read the they do often see the Stock Job Bing journals of Wall and Are unfamiliar with the half half patronizing Way in which these representatives of railway monopoly extortionists talk of the Western farm except on those occasions when the Tribune has republished denounced the insulting comments of these organs of Gamester and robbers Gould and his Farmers of the West Are not aware of their exist the Tribune recently defended of against the venal abuse poured on him by the new York because of his attempts to enforce the state forbidding extortionate and unreasonable Railroad the Tribune replied to the charge of the indicator that the governor was doing this to catch ignorant or dishonest that such votes were comparatively rare in and that the Possession of them would leave a politician without Ollice or in both of which governor Laura Bee considering the amount of Money Gould and his like make out of Iowa and the it must be some evil spirit that drives them on to jeer at and abuse those whom they have and when they do approach any Meas ure of Courtesy in speaking of the Western
