The Cresco Republican of the 28th. in its article alluding to "the good old democratic days'* takes a rainbow view of things under the McKinley bill and parrot like talks about crea ting a home market for the vast pro ducts? of this country and says the PLAIN DEALER "admits that farm products sold in Europe are put on the cheapest market in the world where they must come in competition With peasant and coolie labor.'' Yes We not only admit it, but charge that ft is part of the conspiracy entered fato by the republican party when contraction of the currency began fulminating in demonetization of sil •er, and finally in making silver bull ion an article of merchandise for the depredation of American labor, and tile aggrandizement of European capital. If the Republican is not aware of it tfee farmers know that the price of their surplus crop fixes the price up on what is consumed at home and abroad, and that that price is fixed i& London or Liverpool. They also ought to know that through the great crime of demonetizeation and limiting the coinage of silver to less than the annual output the price of silver as well as of farm products is fijced in a foreign market. We believe farmers almost without exception and regardless of politics desire better prices, and to this end ttie farmers' alliance demands the un limited coinage of silver. Free coinage would make an ounce of silver worth $100. Limiting the coinage to less than the output re duces the price to about TO cents This enables our English cousins to buy silver enough to coin a $1.00 for Hie Liverpool price of 70 cents. This silver the English government coins and sends to India in exchange for the wheat produced by the peasant and coolie labor of that country, each cents worth of the purchase ex changing in India for its coin value Of wheat. By this freak in republi can legislation seventy cents of Amer lean silver bullion exchanges in India for one dollar in wheat and with this reduced price the American fanner must compete. Hon. Daniel Manning, Secretary of Hie Treasury under Mr. Cleveland, corroborates these facts in the follow ing language on page 38 of his report Of December, 1880: "It is a direct consequence of the monetary dislocation that wheat of India, which there fetched 3 rupees Slere er quintal fourteen years ago, and fetches 3 rupees per quintal to day. can be sold London (cost of transport apart) for as little as the gold price of 3 silver rupees of India tti Loudon to-day—a fall of 25 per Cent. "This lowered price of wheat in London has to be met by a lower price of the American wheat surplus •old in Londou. The price of our sur £le lus wheat determines the price of whole wheat crop of the United States. "So that the monetary dislocation ]}as already cost our farming popula tion, who number nearly one-half the tbotal population of the United States, an almost incomputable sum, a loss Of millions upon millions of dollars, a loss which they will continue to suffer •o long as Congress delays to stop the flilver purchase and by that act aompel an international redress the monetary dislocation." Coined silver is exchanged at its lace value for all commodities of liome or foreign production silver Imllion at its commodity value. If the exchange is with London or Liv erpool the bullion will coin at a profit of about 30 cents an ounce. This profit inures to the benefit of the for •igner and to the loss of the American farmer, putting his products in direct competition with the slave and Sepoy products of India. Jay Cooke, eminent republican au thority, corroborates out position in the following pointed remarks. "India has to pay the home govern ment $75,000.000 annually, and it must fee paid in gold. The great decline Slird, i silver increased the burden one but there was no relief. Thus, the position of the 'creditor na tion,' England makes a double profit first, enormous sums of interest come Into her coffers, and then her money lib made more valuable than the mon •y of most of the human race. To this imperial policy we in America bave contributed our aid first, by borrowing enormous sums of money in England, and second, by helping her to make gold the only money that will settle balances between nation*. It is- strange that we have done this, when nine-tenth* of the silver is pro duced by America. Now. suppose we reverse the process. Suppose, first, that we quit borrowing and keep all the interest and dividends at home. Then that we arrange with the peo ple of M-xico. South and Central America, who number about sixty million*, to coin the standard dollar in the same ratio as the United States. Then suppose France, who has more silver than any nation on the earth, and is obliged to protect it, should be invited to join the American mone tary union and bring the Latin union with her. She would be glad to do it, and there would be a bimetallic league embracing 2S5,000.000 people. Then England would no longer be able to force payment in gold. If she tried it, then she would rapidly lose her trade."' The Republican probably desires the prosperity of the farmer and bet ter prices for his varied products, but is mistaken as the means to that end. For 100 years the policy of England has been to keep the raw material products of the world's industries as low as possible, so that the annual in comes of interest from debtor nations would absorb the largest possible quantities of their commodities. To this end she has sought to control the volume of every nation's money, so she could control the wages of labor and the price of commodities. To this end the famous Hazard Circular was issued, being nothing less than a deliberate, knowing and wilful pur pose to aid and abet the usurers of England and America in robbing the wealth producers of America and the world. BOODLE CAMPAIGN. Republican Perfidy Laid Before the People. A MOST UNHOLY MISSION. Railroad Money to Eleet Wheeler and His Associates. BRAZEN PROMISES MADE Clarkson, Mack and Pray Go to Chi cago to Solicit Aid From Railroad Officials—The People to be Betrayed for More Corruption Money* CHICAGO, Oct. 17.—The visit of J. S. Clarkson to the west is significant. Those who have watched the Iowa campaign from a distance have seen plain indications that the protected millionaires of the east would be cal led upon to assist in the campaign of boodle inaugurated by Iowa republi cans in order that McKinleyism might be in no danger of a backset. THK SCHEME LAID BAIllfi. Developments in this city yester day, brought more fully to light through investigations made today, show that more money is desired and that it is to come from a source near er home and vitally affecting the in terests of every person in Iowa. J. 8. Clarkson was in Chicago yester day, on his way to Iowa. He was met here by Edgar E. Mack, chair man of the republican state central committee of Iowa and G. B. Pray, clerk of the supreme court, ami a prominent republicanlmanager. These are the men who with Secretary of State McFarland met in Washington at the outset of the campaign to plan its conduct and the future policy of the party in Iowa as well as to assess the manufacturers. VISITING RAILROAD OFFICIALS. When they met here yesterday the first man they sent for was John S. Runnels, general counsel for the Pull man Car Company, one of the worst monopolies of the land and one which continually violates the laws of Iowa and evades taxation. This coterie of republicans, Clark son, Mack, Pray and Runnells, called upon the railroad officiate of the vari ous Iowa roads, as well as of the Pullman Car Company, and asked to* further aid in carrying Iowa for the grain speculator and telephone farm er, H. Wheeler, of Odebolt, and the remainder of the republican .state ticket. They furnished numerous promises as to what their candidate for governor would do if elected and urged the necessity for the election of Judge Weaver to the »upreine bench. THK BASK COALITION'. This lays bare the whole import of the Iowa campaign, the railroads have gradually been bringing the re publican party under its control, and now J. S. Clarkson believes that the pendulum has so far "returned" that a base coalition can be made. Clarkson went on to Iowa, accomp anied by Mack and Pray, and all of them satisfied with the arrangements made. The people of Iowa now see what they must combat, for if H.C. Wheel er and his companions on the ticket are returned it means a gradual aban donment of the policy of a reasonable control of corporations by the states whose creailMt they are and the Pullman which opposes the authority 0i every state in the union, and the various railroad companies will again rule things with a high hand. At alxmt the same time these men were in Chicago procuring from the railroads and the distillers money with which to corrupt the ballot, Judge Greshaui, at the unveiling of the Grant statue in Chicago, was giv ing utterance to these words of sober ness and truth which the voters should take home and weigh and eon, sider. Judge Gresham said: "It is worse than idle to shut our eyes to the existence of corrupt metli ods and practices in our politics, which threaten to subvert our free institutions. The people are often cheated at ttus polls and in legislation, and prizes which should be the reward of honest merit are too frequently bestowed upon the cunning and unscruplous rich. Heal freedom is not enjoyed by the people unless the laws are enact ed by their honestly chosen repre sentatives. and their freedom of ac tion is as much impaired, when it is corruptly influenced, as if controlled by force. The man who accepts a bribe of any sort places his conscience and judgment in the vilest bondage. He i« no longer free. Argument is wasted on him. Considerations of the public weal or woe do not affect him. Bayonets at the polls would not control his conduct more effect ively. Ami men who contribute money to buy votes and to bribe the people's representatives, as well as those who disburse it, are deadly ene mies to the republic. Their greed and love of power are greater than their love of country. They impair popular respect for law, which is the only safety for life and property and it will be au evil day for the nation when its preservation depends upon their patriotism and courage. They may masquerade in the garb of right eousness and address the people in the language of patriotism, but their virtues are assumed: they are hypo crites and assassins of liberty, and would welcome a dynasty rather than shed their blood in defense of popular government. Their shame less and insidious attacks on free in stitutions are infinitely more danger ous than the revolutionary teachings and practices of a comparatively few visionary and misguided men and women in our large cities. The courts hold that dealing in fu tures in grain and buying options on the board of trade is a species of gam bling which destroys real values and makes the farmer's prices depend up on the chances of the game, and not on supply and demand. The Creston Sunday Times, a re publican paper published in Union County by N. A. Cole charges that Hiram C. Wheeler, republican candi date for governor in Iowa, has been a regular customer of the bucket shops of Chicago: in other words, a specu lator in options. Mr. Cole addressed a letter to Mr. Wheeler some two weeks since, calling on him to explain or defend his doings in these matters which the courts hold to be illegal and void. These practices are de structive to every legitimate business interest, and it would be surprising if farmers who have through the Alli ance denounced these practices, by their votes should endorse one who follows them. The truth is, H. C. Wheeler has been a patron of the bucket shops and board of trade blacklegs in Chicago, and does not dare deny the accusation. The evi dence against him is conclusive, Wheeler says. "1 aui not jnow] a speculator in options on the board of trade of Chicago.'" That is not the charge, Mr. Wheeler, but that you have been, and you seem to admit it by au evasiye reply to the charge. Every Farmer's Alliance, K. of L. Assembly, and farmers' organisation in Iowa since lfcf70, when the Jack Sturgis grain deal carried down the Cook County National Bank, and sweeping B. F. Allen's bank into the vortex, and carrying down hundreds of smaller institution* involving far mers and business men in uuutwop ruin, has, in unmeasured term*, de nounced the bucket shop and board of trade gambling in grain options. imagine the consternation then, when it discovered that the re publican canduiuta far governor had been habitually in that Ou«iU£jC(i up to about the time of his nomination.. It is supposed that since his nomi nation he has abstained from that, being bus'ly engaged in exhibiting himself in hora« J^arlis, etc., as per the terms in his conlidentuU Jctfers.

Selection from a Lecture by Dr. 8. B. Hart* man Delivered at tha Surgical Hotel, Columbus. Ohio, XXPORTED FOB THE PBESS. There is no other disease more com mon, more neglected, and often more diflieult to etire than catarrh. It in common, because all alike are expos ed to sudden changes in temperature neglected, because it is rarely severe enough at first to interfere with busi ness and diilicult to cure, because it is usually allowed to become chronic before treatment is begun. SYMPTOMS OK CATARRH. The symptoms vary according to the stage and exact location of the disease. The first stage of catarrh of the nose uiui head s frontal sinuses) produces discharge from the nose, sneezing, pain in the eyes and fore head, weak, and sometimes watery eyes, occasionally loss of memory. In the last stage the discharge ceases, and dry offensive scales form in the nose: polypi growths sometimes form in one or botli nostrils, and the pain in the head and eyes is less intense. If the catarrh is principally in the throat it produces a raw feeling,mak ing swallowing painful, and the ton sils become inflamed at the slightest touch. The mucous membrane of the throat is thickened, red and frequent ly ulcerated. Hawking with difficulty stringy mucous out of the throat, gag ging and spitting, are symptoms more or less constant, according to the se verity of the case. In the last stage the thickened and swollen membrane became thin and shiny and the sputa thick and of a very offensive odor. As soon as this dreadful disease reaches the larynx hoarseness and weakness of voice manifest themselves. Unless some thing is done to prevent, the catarrh will follow the mucous membrane in to the lungs, where it will be followed by cough, night sweats, rapid loss of flesh, and the other dread symptoms of consumption or the catarrh may pass through the osophagus to the stomach and produce dyspepsia, with all its attendant horrors. In mv ex tensive practice of medicine 1 have treated a vast number of cases of ca tarrh in all stages of its progress lrom its first appearance as a common cold to the last stage of consumption. When the catarrh is located in other organs it produces symptoms due to a deranged or suspended function of the organ or organs affected. TREATMENT Ol- CATARRH. With the foregoing explanation any one can understand that catarrh is the same wherever located, the differ ent symptoms being due to the part affected rather than a difference in the disease. Catarrh is everywhere and always a passive congestion of the capillary blood-vessels of some mucous membrane, due to a flabbi ness of these little vessels. Is there a remedy known to man that will oper ate to strengthen the coats of the weakened vessels and restore them to their wonted elasticity? I believe there is one, amlonly Pe-ru-na i* applicable to catarrh of any mucous surface of the body and in all stages. From the slightest ca tarrhal atuu-k, or cold, to the most pronounced ease of the hypertrophic form, Pe-ru-na is a specific, its oper ation is, primarily, on the mucous surfaces, by giving to each capillary vessel its norma] elasticity, time reaching the cause. Whenever the catarrh is located where it is conven ient to make local applications, they undoubtedly assist Pe-ru-na in com pleting a cure, but this is not always the case, ami Pe-ru-na can be relied on to perfect a cure without any local '.reatiuent whatever. Catarrh of the kidneys, bladder, uterus, larynx, bron chial tubes, lungs and frontal sinuse-. art i^-ii Leyoud the reach of itfc one. It is call ed Pe-ru-na. Pe-ru-na operates di rectly on the vasa-motor system of nerves, which give the smaller arter ies (arterioles their elasticity. effective local treatmejii internal treat ment Is the only hop .'. Pe-r -j a i equal to the task: it cures catarrh wherever located by removing the cause. lV-ru-na is comparatively a new remedy in many localities, and is thus unknown to many druggists ami I have used it con tinuously for thiily yeai. ami it is already u household *or in i'en,? of thousands of homes.
