THE HOCK ISLAND ARGUS,
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1889,
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Thursday. Skftembe SO, 1889.
Springfield Rtgi$ter: Senator Cul
lorn mod Got. Pifer were ahriekera at the
late Emancipation day celebration, and
both, of course, took the position that
the neproea would prove recreant to duty
and to their race by voting the demo
cratic ticket. EiOot. Palmer also spoke
briefly on that occasion and aaid to the
negroes, you are free men; think as yoti
please; rote as you please; it is not ma
terial whether you vote my way or not;
yon do better than by voting with me;
you vote as you please. Senator Cullom
and Gov. Fifer look upon the negroes as
the political chattels of the republican
party, and they would bold them for all
time in political bondage. Ei-Oov. Pal
mer reminds them that they are free men,
and counsels them to act as free men.
Palmer was always the fiiend of the
negro. Cullom and Fifer seek to control
his vote, and kmc all interest in him the
moment be begins to betray a disposition
to assert bis political independence.

What will become of the great Ameri

mills will hove passed into the handa of
the sheriff? Of what benefit then will be
the tariff tai on imported wool, when the
American wool raiser will be scouring
around Europe for a msrket for his
Like the row of tricks which the
small boy stands on end to push the one
against the other till all lie flit upon the
ground. Is the faded woolen industry of
this great country. Day by day since
the failute of the first woolen house a
few weeks ago, is heard the crash of in
solvent woolen firms and the wail of
bankrupt leaders and manufacturers,
who, in their sore distress, heap maledio
tionsjpon the wool tariff. IlaJ the
Mills bill passed this would" not have
happened, but it has happened and the
final result will be a gain for the advo
cates of free raw materials. New Eng
land will never consent to be made a
borne for bankrupt manufacturer, and
the next session of congress will adjourn
with wool on the free list or with a loss
of the New England manufacturing and
farming centers to the republican party
The Yankee will never let a party come
between him and his pocket book.

Iowa republicans stand by their paper
prohibition of the liquor traffic. low.
democrats propose thai the liquor traffic
shall be legalize!. There desire is that
the state and localities snail have the
benefit arising for granting licenses to
iirnm snop keepers a two fold benefit,
fiscal and regulatory. They contend
that illicit Belling is so largely practiced
that tbe law is brought into contempt.
thtt drunkenness is increased, and that a
generation of sueaks and hypocriu is
growing up. Tbe more sagacious Iowa
republicans admit that illicit sales are
made in some portions of the state, tut
not to aoything like the extent charged.
Tbe truth is easily ascertainable. The
general government makes no exception
.f prohibition states in tbe collection of
its internal revenue. A special tax is im
posed upon all vendors of spirits or malt
liouor. and tbe revenue collectors take
care that it is paid. Tbe dramseller in
Iowa wbo bas no fear of a grand jury is
unwilling to take any chances with Uncle
Sam. Jlenre In the prohibition states
where the states themselves gain no rev
nue from liquor selling, the United
States dors. The collation of iu special
tax (toes right on. Let tbe Iowa oppo
nents of tbe prohibitory law ascertain
just bow many special receipts have been
isued by tbe federal tax authorities in
low, to persons engaged in tbe liquor
trsffic ami ibey will bave an approxima
tion at least of the number of places
where liquor is sold despite the Iowa
Tbe well-nigh total failure of tbe at
tempt to banish the liquor traffic in Iowa
and the fraudulent pretense of the repub
licana charged with iu administration
will be muli' to appear in a light which
no one can mistake.
