and the week following Bishop Foss the upper Iowa at in the state there Are upwards of one Hundred thousand members with an aggregate of six Hundred thousand in the the regular pastor ate numbers about with local there Are Twenty three districts with As Many it is no easy matter for the Bishop with his Cabinet of and which is usually composed of presiding to make All these appointments so that both pastors and people Are whilst there May be some to the world it is rarely i every Church has a pastor and every pastor has a i the wants and needs of every Indi 1 visual society is taken into consideration As Well As the pastors and their i there of grades in the churches and the and minis ters usually make their own appoint ments by making themselves wanted by the appointing Power is not so monarchical an affair As it is often thought to for the elders and Bishops seek All information and generally aim to please the congregations but the work As a whole is taken into consideration As Well As the interests of self sacrifice of this body of christians is helped make our nation what it and if in the future of the worlds his tory the sword is beaten into a plough share and a Spear into a pruning it will be found that the shouting meth Odist had a hand in the they Are Low in this but they Are much lower in the free Trade organs have a Good Deal to say about the Low wages paid to miners in the Coal and Iron regions of this it is True that the return for the tremendous labor and great risk which miners have to undergo seems and that it does not local compare very favourably with the pay whilst a High Grade of pulpit ability which men receive in certain other in but this seems to be some thing universally characteristic of the miners the circumstances that a Good Deal of mine labor comes very near the definition of unskilled Proba Bly has considerable to do with it is absurd at any rate for the american free traders to use the Low average of Dubuque it is charged by the Des Moines news that Herman of one of the democratic nominees for state Railroad was in Des Moines last Winter lobbying against lower freight and passenger this is a very grave one which wills cannot afford to unless it is promptly denied and the proof it must inevitably inflict serious injury upon the gentleman if the charge were preferred at the close of the it might be set Down As a calumny and dismissed but preferred As it is at the opening of the it Calls for investigation and it is not desirable that wills should be regarded As a creature of the corporations if he is is it Safe to make him a commissioner if he is usually asked by the yet methodism relies on other agencies than that of oratorical some of the Ablest pulpit orators Are Flat fail ures in building up warmth of love for the faithfulness in looking after the people and ability in management is demanded equally with that of ability to miners wages in this country As an argument in favor of the destruction

heard is the argument that because american Wool is ruinous by cheap at the present the duty ought to be removed to make cheap Woolen goods and to create a better Market for it is the Council Bluffs Globe that ventures upon such an if Wool is so Low now that americans cannot afford to keep what is the use of repealing the duty and making it lower an other thing if wages Are Low in protected How

have that Chance our surplus grows and surplus manufacturers go to what More extended privilege in the markets of the world would free Trade give us they stand by each our esteemed of manufacturers want free raw but what they Are afraid of is the desire to get even which would move to vengeful action the raw material of course manufacturers would like to have free raw but it shows that they Are patriotic As Well As extremely sensible in recognizing the fact that the Farmer would be a fool if he voted for a system which encouraged manufacturing and that afforded him no our contemporary states

immigrants who have found Here More comforts than than they could get nine or ten dollars a the lowest wages paid full grown men in american Coal according to this Are quite As Low As except the free would like to see them an approximation to the miserable pittance of and even less which some classes of English miners receive May be a desirable thing from the free Trade Point of but genuine

beyond the reach of permanent injury at the hands of angry Railroad or of their servants or but slander will react on the slander it is not in human nature to be lied about As the people of Iowa have been lied about by Railroad Cranks and feel kindly toward the Cranks though they the voice of these miserable slanders is that they produce irritations and tend to excite the prejudices of the people to As almost unreasonable a pitch As that to which the prejudices of the corporations have there is thus fomented the As Cerbito of where there should be Calm what the corporations above All things

adopted protect wages grow big under Protection because the output is and the output is bigger because Protection leads men to work together and get All they can out of Uncle Sams any system which does this must be Good for How does Protection do this take two sets of settlers Side by it is Clear that the set which gets most out of the mine and Mill will have most to both sets must first work with the axe and in one lot men we will each Day give a Little More work to get this Coal pit we will put in extra hours to set this forge a few hours More each week shall go to building a Mill if a Man will come Here and set up his loom and spin our Wool we will keep him in House and Board until he can turn his Corner and begin to make things we will use what is made and we will use nothing this All would Cost More than to Trust to the a and plow alone and sell what was Cut and raised in the Mart where All was the Cost of living would go up where this plan was each Man would have to work but he would get More to Divide and More to the mine would be the forge be the Mill wheel turn and i the loom would the Farmer would get More for his land and the worker More for his All would be done on High and the land would flow with even with this it is Clear this set of men would turn out More than the one which took things As they came and let All it would have an advantage Over the one which put no prize on hard work and let the the the Mill and the loom be set up when some Man thought he could risk turning from the Field in which he knew there was Money to a new Trade in which there might be but was not Likely to be with old hands in the old country All in full running wages would be lower and would stay lower with this second because less would be the Man with a turn for setting a Mill going would think twice before he did it with no sure Market and the Man with Coal on his land would go on blowing for food instead of digging for this is All so Plain and Clear that no Man can
