Iiy order of Committee.
Con^reiwman Pratt has been re
nominated by the Republicans of his
district.
Of the Anti-Monop. State candi
dates onlj' one is a farmer—Mr. Mor
gan. Mr. Barnes the candidate for
Treasurer is a noted railroad man.
Tbe other nominees nobody knows.
Th^ Ottumwa Courier says the
reason why David Morgan, the Anti
Monop. nomineo for Secretary of
State, is in tiiat party, is that he
cHjitldnH get an Indian Agency, and
therefore the Republican party was
tuo corrupt for him to stay iu it.
John Irish declines to be a candi
date for Congress on the Anti ticket
against James Wilson, who beat him
no badly before. An exchange from
that District says John did not run
before "iio only limped along, a
great way off, not making one-third
the distance. Jle eveu fell behind
on the home, stretch, where of course
he had everything in his favor. We
wish he would try it again and he
would if he could but he knowahe
i3 not wanted, even by the new par.
ty." He jwwi Sam. Kvans have the
Anti-Monopoly State Conven
tion.
The Anti-Monopoly Party of Iowa
met by delegates in Des Moines last
Wednesday. W. F. Cardell waa
made Chairman and T. ). Walker
Secretary of the temporary organiza
tion. Committees were appointed,
W. M. Stone, of Marion, being sand
witched between the old Democratic
stagers, Kd. Johnstone^of Lee, and
Dennis, Mahoney JIarria, of Cass,

PLATFMM.-
Jtfffotrdf, That we. thf» fe!e£fitftd
representatives of the people of Iowa
favorable to the organization of an
independent political party, laying
aside pa.$t differences of opinion, and
earnestly uniting in a common pur
pose to secure needed reforms in the
administration of public affairs, cor
dially unite iu submitting these dec
larations
1. That all political power is in
herent in the people that no gov
ernment is worthy of preservation
or should be upheld which
derive its power from the consent of»
the governed that by equal and
just laws, tho inestimable rights of
life, liberty, and the pursuit of hap
piness should be secured to ail men,
without distinction of race, color, or
nativity that the maintenance of:
these principles is essentia! to the
perpetuity of our republican institu-,
tions and that to this end the Fed-,
eral Constitution, with all Unamend-'
merits, (he rights of the States, and
the union of the States, must and
shall be preserved.
2. That the mlntenance Inviolate
of the rights of the States, and espe
cially of the right of each State to or
der and control its own domestic in
stitutions according to its own judg
ment exclusively is essential to that
balance of powers on which the per
fection and endurance of our political
fabric depend and that we denounce,
as a criminal excess of constitutional
power, the policy of President Grant'*
administration in fostering the enor
mities perpetrated in certain States
of the I nion, in arbitrarily interfer
ing with theif local alTrirs^in sustain
ing therein the* usurpations of alien
und irresponsible ad vynturern, where
by certain men have been illegally
invested with oflicial authority, and
others deprived of their constitution
al rights oppressive laws enacted
burdensome taxation imposed ail
an immense and fictitious indebted
ness created, resulting in the degra
dation of those States, and the gen
eral impoverishment of their peo
ple.
3. That the conduct of the
present administration, in its bold
defiance of public sentiment and
disregard of the common good,
in its prodigality and wasteful
extravagance in the innumerable
frauds perpetrated under its authori
ty in its disgraceful partiality for
and reward of unworthy favorites
in its reckless and unstable financial
policy, and in its total incapacity to
meet the vital questions of the day,
and provide for the general welfare,
stands without a parallel in our na
tional history, and the highest con
siderations of duty require tho Amer
ican people in tho exercise of their
inherent sovereignity to correct
these accumulating evils, and bring
the government back to its ancient
landmarks of patriotism and econ
omy.
4. That the faith and credit of the
nation must be maintained inviolate
that the public debt of whatever
kind should be paid iu strict accord
ance with the law under which it

Craft) William.
The world was astonished a few
weeks ago, by a letter from W. M.
Stone, announcing his retirement to
private life. It was so unlike Wil
liam, that the political world stood
amazed, and wondered what was to
follow. The sequel is now being
written. We learn of a movement
in the Northern ant! other parts of
this District, to bring William from
his rural retreat, at Knoxville, to
sprinkle a fresh haudful of hayseed
in his hair, and christen him as
41
fresh from the
people." The Delegates from Jasper
county to the Congressional Conven
tion are understood to be a "Stone"
delegation, and we shall hear of more
of the same kind. Go in, gentlemen,
he's a genuine modern day Reformer.
Let him that is without sin cast
the first Stone"—vote—and William
won't have a quorum.—/Teuton
Headlight,
William retires to private life once
or twice a year, but he's always wil
ling when a nomination is within
his reach. His modesty sometimes
impels him to decline and say No
when he means yes.
