Nationals Are alive All Over the Union. A big army of them will soon net in Indianapolis to put out their charter of Liberty anew and select a Standard bearer. When the Bondholder found the Ordor marked Down in his Bond Worth several times As much As he loaned the government no wonder that he was for gqp4 honest Money the people found it very Jwal Money although it was a soft thing to the Rooney Lender.

Top transactions a sad and distr Appfel comment on the business ways of speculators and of top leading Public Nien who hts v e been entrusted with the direction of National affairs since in e close of the War. The Public can now begin to see Why Graut ism in politics bus such in Kueppe Yor the in half apr Yupp of a a a pantry. Like rules like people1 is an old motto. Ben Butler s mistake in this Bonsted land of Liberty everybody is equal before the Law it everybody has $10,000, and Oan find four other persons with equal fortunes who Are willing to engage in a National banking unt apprise other Rise the privilege of drawing interest on what one owes is denied. My. We Libr did a very handsome thing last week when an attempt was made to Gat in Aninias introduce a Bill providing for an appropriation of $10,000 to give a re seption to the siamese embassy of course the reception would have been an occasion Foi a Jum Boreo and a High drunk. Or. Weller refused to give consent and the honorable m. A. And the siamese embassy were obliged to furnish their own whisky or go dry Hon. L. H Weller of this Dis  to be always at his Post a a i i fully for the Best inter i big constituents at Home i  v it.

We v Row contracted bigot no a no nil is so Small that it can p / in if did with a powerful Micro or it one who has the Good of i Oia District at heart and we to give his Best energies t i Pinote human happiness and a " i society such we think is the i a a ent incumbent of the fourth co. Union. Under the above heading the Sentinel criticizes gov. Butler to the extent of Over a column. The following paragraph is really the most significant in the whole business we shall never forget that Ben Butler voted Gaic to the Public or edit not the most infamous of All infamous acts fiver passed by 1a corrupt Congress and that on to count of his opposition to the financial schemes of the Republican party lie was retired to private life. Nor shall we forget that he championed at his own expense the test Case in who i the Riu preme court just decided in favor of the Greenback. Nor shall we forget th1 w8 Phi hip note ranges he has a Erwn Taftt he has a pm Parr Rompre Hension of Greenback Pron Peples than even three fourths of the men who have been sent to Congress As Green Bokern. Nor we forget that he has espoused the canse of Inu pers while governor of the state and that the poor people of Massachusetts All it Gard him As a Friend. Well to a common sort of a Man it naturally seems that so Many Good things ought to Over balance a pretty big mistake As to the mistake referred to it is Ana of opinion simply and not of principle we have no de sire to look for any More perfect re Cord. We Are ready to risk old Ben even if be hns made a mistake it will be a pretty difficult thing Bro. Morton to find a candidate who has never made a mistake. The Man feels More charitably inclined toward Weller than Noma of his Brethren for the reason that the almighty made an Aas of Biro to is not to blame if god bad used up All his ass making Materia on Weller republicans would have Leas occasion to hide their eases in Shaine than they now have. True thu ass proclivities in republicans however prominent Are generally lost sight of in the Rascal and to Duld a hard to Tell which pre nominated in the recent vote of the tie Ven Iowa republicans on the Bill for ted doing the tax their constituents Fufa compelled to pay to Eastern Man " during co. Reorganize nor Board the the indications Are that or. Clarkson got the upper hand in the organization of the Board of trustees of the Utate agricultural College. D. A Mott of Franklin county was elected chairman of the Board by a vote of Soven to for for Joseph Dysart of Tama Dysart was placed on the Board for the reason that he was in sympathy with the course of the old Board in making certain changes in the faculty. Or. Clarkson is made chair Man of the important committees on faculty and of Norse of study and on Library. H is also a member of the executive and finance committees. The old members of the Board and especially the aggressive ones Are relegated to Buck seats. Grattan is second on the committee on horticulture last on the building committee first on College farm and agriculture and last on rules str kor is first on the committee on workshop and Lasc on the Library committee. He appears no where else. These Are All harmless places and it is Little less than an insult to place the old members on the Board in such unimportant positions. Dysart the new anti Clarkson member is Given this place on the executive committee first on College lands Tabt on horticulture second on College farm sad second on rules. It is very Plain that the Clarkson faction has triumphed. What the Elf not will be on the institution cannot act rarely predicted. It is not calculated to further the interests of the Collego. Or. Clarkson forced himself upon the Board against the protest of a Large number of the thoughtful Inea of both parties in different parts of the state. He did it to accomplish a selfish purpose. It was largely to avenge the removal of president Welch who was Booi ally and otherwise intimate with the editor of the Register. To use Snow an official position to too Oil Plith personal ends is not calculated to inure to the Benefit of the College. Or. Clarkson Baving succeeded in organizing the boaidt4ms satisfaction it now remains to eleventh its adherence to a sound financial policy which estates the immediate suspension of the coinage of tha Standard Silver Dollar the retirement of the Trade Dollar and the inflexible adjustment of fhe currency to the single Standard of gulp the above Resolution fro i the new York state be publican platform of 1884 has the unmistakable ring of pure Metal. It Means it Means slavery it Means War it is a Gauntlet thrown to the free labourers of America and Means that lie old old contest Between Freedom and slavery must be renewed that the pal my does Nof prop Asp to skirmish any longer hut is preparing tur an immediate attack ant charge in Forup along the whole line. But who wept where s the enemy murmurs some Good Pat Rod half awake Sou the Energy is he Gold up War. It is that Power which in All Ages and countries has ruled Jabor and extorted from it half its earnings at Tho least As a tribute on Exchange. The nations of the world have bowed n Humble submission to this image of Gold but because Gold has always been King is no sign he shall not be dethroned. Our fathers dethroned the George and led All the nations to step toward Liberty. It dethroned african slavery and another step was taken. It must de throne Gold at last final step that will Intro due this nation arid the world to the fruition of True Liberty and open the Way for the completo Triumph of the Prince of Pence. But the Republican party of the state of new York raise the Ory loud live Kino Gold a and every other Republican state and for ought we know every democratic state will Echo the slogan. What struggles will develop As the contest proceeds no Man can Tell whether the elements of society will agn be thrown into chaos whether patios shall take up arms to enforce the Sway of King Gold or whether through the admirable machinery of our government the change shall comp quietly like the unfolding of a Flower. It a Post comb the Rock of its Advent depends on top determination and Force with which its coming is resisted by the armies of King Gold Bank politics in Des Moines schools. Iowa Tribune. The Register in its Effort to keep the people ignorant even dominates Over our Public schools and persecutes woman teachers if they have the audacity to explain to their scholars the great political facts of our Day. In a recent Issue it said. Complaint is being made by some prompt nent citizens that one of the teachers in the Public schools of Unis Moines is going outside of her legitimate work to teach and try to impress upon her pupils her own political views. We do not Oare which party she is upholding for it makes no differ once As to that so Long As teachers Are not paid to teach party politics. It is reported that the same teacher said to her school not Long since that the United states is the most corrupt government on the face of the Earth we do believe in teaching loyalty to the country and if these reports Are True we have no doubt but that the Board of directors irrespective of party would censure it. This lying sneaking item refers to one of our Best teachers in the High school lady whose scholars Are nearly grown men and women. She never taught disloyalty. She never said the United states is the most corrupt government of the face of the Earth or anything like it however True it May be. Her offence consisted in explaining to her pupils at the request of one of them the recent Legal tender decision of the supreme court. For this the Register hates her and is lying about her and trying to drive her out. The Banks must be desperate when their Organ pounces upon a lady school teacher for explaining the most important decision of the. A supreme court especially As her , were entirely non partisan. Awake of from the Iowa. Tribune the following amendment to Tolje Constitution of the. S. Is in the palp apr of the hour of reported by the judiciary cram Jatog Tye legislative Power granted Congress by the Cona tits tin shall not be sons Trade to i Nolde the Power to pass any Law making anything but Gold and Silver Coin tender in payment of debts except after the Dee Lara Tion of War or in Ose of rebellion or Junias in Whon the Publio safety May demand it. There in no fooling about this shyly pm is determined. To Ere is Only one Way to defeat him.

If you cannot do this let every Reader sit Down and write a pos Ficaj to his m. O. Protesting against Snow an amendment of Power the postal into Thorn like autumn leaves. Do both. Action ail along the line and Victory is ours we Hope our exchanges will sound the note of alarm and urge similar action monopoly legislation Low. That Pup readers May understand the secret Workings of Tho monopolies with the dominant party and the magnitude of the task the people have on hand to secure just Legisla Tion we copy from the Marshalltown times Republican the following comments on the work of the last legislature. One thing seems Evi Dent nothing can de done that will be of any Avail until Tho people regardless of party act unitedly and presi stantly for the accomplishment of their Purpo Pisi his but simple Justice to aay that for bib subservience to Railroad in Teresta Butth parties alike Are responsible As in other status top rail roads in Iowa know no Polit tics. In Eude adoring to defeat legislation for the people a few leading Deino rats wrought Side by Side and hand in hand with leading republicans. It is a spa r to say that if a measure that had Good in it could even get through the committee with a favourable report or even unfavourable report or even unfavourable it stood a fair Hanoe for passage. The members generally in both Bouses were All right nor should sweeping censure be visited upon the Railroad committees. There were on some of those committees sore of the very debt men in the state and some of the very truest to the people. The rail roads Are always shrewd in this that they look after the majority of the Railroad committees. That is Justice and truth in the lobby judge Trimble of the a b. A q., and one of the shining lights of Iowa democracy was Arm in Arm with judge Hubbard of the North Western who is As prominent in the Republican party. Their aides were equally divided Between the two parties on the floor of the Senate bother a Republican was not a Whit More agile in a springing to the assistance of the lobby than was Johnson Democrat. In the House democratic loader was an Able As blatant to Benson Republican and chairman of the Railroad committee and All Down along the Lino of the Simon pure corporation advocates no political distinction was made. On these questions party lines wore never drawn or thought of. And the Bee is right when it says that a majority of the members of both houses were in favor of the legislation asked for by the people Aud promised in Tho platforms of All the parties. They could be depended upon if a measure Ever passed the Gauntlet of the committee. It was in the committee that the lobby was Strong and did its effective work. We might cite several illustrations. Take the Oil test Bill which was opposed by the Standard Oil monopoly and which if enforced will Cost that corporation several thousand dollars by compelling it to furnish pure Oil in the place of the miserable stuff that has been forced on the Public for years. The Bill was gallantly fought through the Senate committee by the state Board of health and was prot poly passed when it last came before that body. Then it went to the House was smothered in its proper committee and finally passed to the to net in eur p is of the sifting committee. A the influence that could be brought to Bear on Thap committee Pound not secure a report the Mayning of Tho last Day of the session Maine around and All was in pontus fun. In tha face of All these difficulties the friends of the Bill got a motion through to take Imp the measure but the original Bill could not be found. Some one said it was in the sifting committee s room. That room Wuh of de and not a could be j found who had a key to it. To rep was passing swiftly and the Hall dozen a parches almost discouraged Whan they ran across a committee clerk Aud made him open the a apr. The Bill was finally found not among the hundreds on file but by Accident in Tje year of a drawer a line and by itself. They carried to Back to the House it was hurriedly read and Rashod without opposition and with a Hurrah. So with other measures notably the Railroad commission Bill. A measure could to opposed obstructed and smothered in the seclusion of com mites that was almost certain of soc lbs when Given the publicity of open debate and a Public record. The methods and resources of the lobby in defeating legislation were brilliantly variable and Ufa limited Young or. Fillmore of Clay went to mpg. Moines determined to do the bar be could toward assisting Reform he introduced in the House Tho Bill up polling the railroads to incorporate and was for awhile Zeal Ous and energetic advocate of it. But the lobby finally surrounded Rind muzzled him they went up to his own county where two new lines of Road Werp to tie built and bore that if the Bill passed they would not throw a Buovo Lenl of dirt. Remonstrances and petitions poured in on Filmore from his leading constituents and he was flanked out Generalow he subsided and with him his Bill. Representative head introduced a Bill to compell the Road to Fence i heir lines but tin lobby persuaded him that he was of the material that congressmen Are made and he had no time to press his Bill and its Little life passed out. Watched to a peace Ful close by the Railroad committee. So it went through the session and a few Points were jotted Down Here and there that May yet make an in to resting chapter of Story not All boo w la the time rally around the Flag boys rail Pace Aga Jpn the Tampa Jan of 18,84 has already opened.

A Large number of speeches for and against the Morrison Bill have n9w been made most of the big guns especially those on the Republican Side have to Tho great enjoyment of the compositors at Uncle Sams printing House decorated their speeches with whole Page of statistics. Your Cor respondent inquired of an officeholder who had served his great and glorious government for monthly payments not less than Twenty years Why it was that the advocates of a High protective policy will never make a speech on Tariff without inserting Long winded self contradicting tables of Static tits Why air if a fellow knows to is lying he must prove Tho correctness of his position by figures figures never lie you know answered my companion As we walked along Boss Shepard s pave ment on Capitol Hill. 1 wanted to contradict his philosophy but the poor fellow was hungry his wife was waiting and he climbed on to the platform of a Street car exclaiming never mind sir i am right sir Good by one of the most logical and argument Ive among the very Able speeches in favor of Tariff Reform was delivered by Hon.
