JACOB RICH, Chairman. THE SIXTH DISTRICT. The Herald has noted the various ] speculations of the press of this district 1 on the Congressional field, and has here- , tofore refraiued from expressing its opin- , iou. We observe, however, that every county in the district except one or two has a candidate who aspires to have the “office seek the man” provided he is the man. Of one thing all may rest assured. The Republicans of the gallant Sixth de mand that the man presented for their suff rages be one of strength aud ability, oue that will be able to take the stump and clearly discuss the issues now before the people. Some of the seekers after the nomination, while good men in the general acceptation of the term, are not mule of the kind of material that c:.n go into a tight such as the next campaign promises to he and cover eitli r the party or themselves with glory. The efforts of Democrats aud Greeubackers to coalesce, will iu our opinion fall to the ground. Demo crats in this county at least, do not forget the treatment they received at the hands of their Greenback allies, last fall and will not care to put themselves iu a position for a similar sell out. They demand that they have some voice in who the nominee shall be, aud to fill their measure he must he a man of Democratic antecedents. Even, however, if these elements should u iite there is no reasou why we should not succeed, unless a mistake is made in the nomination. While we believe there is no reason to apprehend defeat, yet we tulize that this will not be a “walk over,” and accordingly urge the nomination of the very best and strongest man in the district; and in order to find him it may be necessary lo go outside of tin- list of mines presented as candidates. The Herald has no candidate to press claims for, and it proposes to Work, for the norni nation of a capable man, and a good and true Republican, and when nominated will give him hearty support, but we have no desire to enter a canvass with the knowledge that the party is carrying a weight. We an- also in favor of tl • o illing of the convention late, the reasous wherefore we will give hereafter. COMPARISONS. The Independent - Workingmens - Na tionals-Greenback party are fond of draw ing comparisons between their own present weak and inefficient stature and the early days of the Republican party. They say: look at the beginning of the Republican party, how small and insuf ficient it was; bow it struggled l'or exis tence; bow it was traduced and hooted; and how in spite of all opposition it grew from strength to strength until it swept all before it like a mighty rushing wind. So, say these prophets, will be the history of our party. Let's supply a comparison these chaps always leave out. The Re publican party wub founded upon a vital principle—the very life of the nation hung trembling in the balance, when it came forward ami taking its ward in al most the very throes of death, by careful watching, faithful nursing and strong protection brought it up from the terrors of dissolution to the full vigor and streugth of perfect mauhood. It made, however, one mistake; the Republican party had a soul, a warm responsive soul, and when rebels, those who had stabbed the nation to its very vitals came with profession of repentance upon their lying lips, and asked to be restored, it extended a hand of brotherly and frater nal greeting—only to he stung again by the deadly asp of disunion and discord. It found a country with a depleted treas ury and impaired credit, it to-day shows a nation, than which none other has a bet ter credit; a nation with money in its treasury, and reputation for honorable dealing which is the envy of the world. It stands to-day the father of the princi ple of equality before the law, and in its platforms is ever found the idea of an honest payment of the debts of the na tion iu an honest money. Against such a record as the above the green back party presents itself as a fitting com parison, because forsooth, it is unorgan ized. It wont do. In all the greenback platforms we have seen—and we have them all, including the National*? of Tole do—there is not a single vital principle. The one feature of every one is selfish ness, it pervades them all; every plunk, every sentence is an appeal to the most sordid selfishness of men. The idea of a division of property, eight hours labor with the pay for ten, unlimited issues of paper money sufficient for the wants of all, and kindred ideas are not such as men stand by, if need he with their lives; there is not in them a single element of princi ple that make men or parties strong in their support. The very fact that the greenback leaders are continually at dif ference as to what they want, is the best evidence of the supreme selfishness of every man who would foist upon the country this damnable thing called repu diation, hut named “absolute money" by Brick Pomeroy and others of his breed, in the hope that in the ruin of others they themselves might get gain. No, Mr. Greenbaokcr, before you have a right to compare tire shadow of a dream called the greenback party to the grand old Re publican organization, you must have a principle at stake that will call from men a better and purer devotion than that born and reared in the realm of self. The Chicago Time* of last Saturday uioruiog printed dispatches from nearly two hundred joints in Illinois, Wiscon sin, lowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Dakota, Kansas and Missouri, covering the whole of the western spring wheat region, which show when summarized that the acreage is nearly 50 per cent, greater than last year; that the conditions and prospects aae berter than at any time since I 860; that the season's work and vegetation are three to six weeks ahead of the nsual time, and that there is an acreage of 15 to 20 per cent of the old crop on hand. The Ft Madison Investigation drags its slow length along and promises to con tinue. HONEST MONEY. Last week we received from a corre spondent a communication making some strange demands of the Republican party. The length of the article—3 columns — prevented its publication, but we propose to consider the question treated of, as briefly as we can, but plainly. The chief demand is a repeal of the resumption act. To such a demand party but one answer, and that is a positive, unqualified no. The nearer the time approaches for the fulfilment of the law in this matter, the more evident it becomes that the resumption act was wise legislation that will result in gen eral good to the whole country. 11 is said that resumption means contraction. Let’s see how much the contraction has been. Prior to the rebellion ami in sea sons of the most prosperous oiiaraoter the amouut of money per capita never exceeded $10.74; in 1804 it was $14.74; in 1806 it was $19.95, the highest point ever reached; in 1870 it was $17.- 73; and last year it was $14.79 of paper money for each person. These figures are from the American Almanac by the librarian of Congress and is a recognized authority by all. The difference then between the * pres ent circulation and that of 1806, when the whole country was in a fever and di lirium of extravagance and speculation, is only $5.10 per capita, and to day the $14.79 will purchase at least 40 per ceut more of all commodities than the sl9 95 would in 1800, making it in fact worth $5.91 more now than then, or in other words, the $14.79 to day is worth, and will buy as much as $‘20.70 would in 800, so that there is in iact no coo true- tiou, but a judicious return to reason uud economy, and to-day with a difference of but of a cent between gold and green backs it would be insanity for us to go back and re-enact the scenes of 1866 and have to do over again the labor of the years since, which have brought us to the present condition of financial stability. If the greenback dogma of “absolute money” was correct, and the government could print on a piece of money “this is a dol- lar,” and cause] it to be so considered whether the idea of convertibility iuto coin was expressed or not, then of course resumption would be useless. We would issue greenbacks, as the new theory is— absolute, perpetual money, by tens, aud hundreds, and thousands if billions aud flood the country with them until e very man whether frugal or shiftless, industri ous or lazy, would be so surfeited with motley that it would be a secondary mat ter with him what any articlo cost; he would simply say, “1 want that,” and down with his pile of greenbacks; and when they were exhausted it would only be necessary for him to go to a govern ment loan office and lay iu a'new supply. Labor as a means of proeuriug money would be unknown. But such can never be*iu this country. Its money must be honest money—mouey that means what is expressed by the word itself —a meas ure of price, a representative of value. By this (honest money) is not implied that all the money of the couutry should be gold or silver, but a medium of exchange That at’all times is a measure of given value, Thus to day the greenback dollar is a measure of value worth 99| cents, and long before the resumption re quired by law its value will bo co-equal with gold, and will be a representative of a gold or a silver dollar and as good as either. Take away from the greenback dollar the idea of it as a representative of value and what|would it be worth? Just what any man saw proper to give for it We have neither the time, space nor in- clination to follow our correspondent through the history of England he gives, but if he will read “Sumner's History of American Currency ,” and note especially the article *on “English a bank restric tion," he will find the panic of 1810, he speaks of, was a direct result of redundant issues of paper currency! extravagant speculation and expenditure; and not until a return was had to honest money did the country assume sound financial standing. The Republican party has no “game” to play in this matter; it is in favor of a return to a specie basis, from principle, as the only honorable way to conduct the finances of the country. And on that platform it will continue to battle for the right as it did in other days for other principles of right aud we believe it will succeed. The Eddyville Advertiser brings out llou. E. H. Stiles of Wapello as a candi date for Congress and gives him a good send-off. It says “it is demanded that he no longer ’hide his light under a bushel’ but make his jwell recognized ability felt in the political arena." Mr. Stiles if nominated will no doubt make a vigorous canvass. It further says of him: “It is evident that Mr. Stiles has developed strength enough to run on his own merits, and that his prospects of success aro second to none. He is one of the lead- ing aspirants for the position, and as such is evidently worthy the support of the county of which he is an honored citizen. His political record is so well known throughout the State that it is useless for us to refer to it iu detail. He has been repeatedly honored with high and responsible positions, and has ever been faithful to his trust, and exhibited sufficient ability for any task that may be imposed upon him by tho people.” The Des Moines Register says: “The Baker Monument Association yesterday let the contract for the building of the monument, it is to be of granite, twen ty-two feet high, and is to cost $1,200. The contract is let to Mr.|R. S. Miller, of this city, and the monument is to be made mainly in Vermont. The design is a very handsome one. It is possible that the monument will be completed so that it can be dedicated on Decoration Day; if not then it will be dedicated on the Fourth of July.” TWEED DEAD. Last Friday Win. M. Tweed, better known as “Boss,” died in Ludlow stree t jail in New York city. Thus ended in shame and the disgraoe of a prison, a life that had the capabilities of better things than it has given to the world. Shrewd and penetrating to a wonderful degree, the forces that should have been for the world’s good, were turned to corrupt an d scheming political trickery; and the memory of Win. M. Tweed will live only as the “Boss" thief of the 19th century. Congress has before it the report of the finance committee in favor of making legal tenders receivable in par for Unit ed States 4 per cents and that from and after the first of October they be receiva ble for customs and other debts, exoept where expressly otherwise stipulated, and that after that date no legal tenders shall be retired for any reason. WILLIAM AM) MARY. Not Sweet William and Gentle Ma ry that people like to think about and associate with all that is good, but William and Mary Collego of Vir ginia, an institution that was so true to the State of its location that it sent 33 ofitß 35 teachers into the rebel ar my to destroy the government under which it existed and without which it could not have existed ; an institution which for 30 years taught treason and disloyalty to its students, thus paving the way for the four years of desolat ing war, and whose teachings helped slay thousands of good and true men; this institution,with every pulsation of its < orporatc life beating in sympathy with the rebel hordes who now swarm the halls of the National Congress, and still endeavoring to sow the seeds of disunion and future strife, now comes boldly up to the doors of the U. S. treasury and with a bold knock demands entrance and the right to pillage. $300,000 is the amount it demands as compensation for the de struction of college property, and its demand is made boldly and defiantly, being emboldened by the assurance of Democratic “statesmen” that its claim is just and should be allowed. It sowed the wind and has reaped the whirlwind, and a harvest of that kind is not convertible into either gold, silver or greenbacks, as William ui d Mary should be taught plainly and pointedly, and will be if dough-faced democracy does riot again bow ihe knee to the southern Baal. It is a somewhat singular fact that tor a |nriod of at lesst two years prior to the hard times of previous years, the auiout t of money per capita was greater than lor years before, and prices of all commo dities were also higher. For instance: in 1835 the amount of money per capita was $8.19; in 1836 it jumped to $10.74, and in’37 fell to $10.26. In 1870 it was $17.73; ’7l $18.24 and in’72 18.01. According to the greenback theory the times should have been easy on account of the abundance of money, rather than close as they were. Tf true in those cases will uot a violent aud sudden in crease of money have the same effect now? We see that Hon. 11. W. llothert s mentioned for Congressional honors from the First District. If we w-re in that district there would be no second thou.iit as to our support of him. It would u* earnest and warm, for we know him to be oue of nature’s noble men—a nan Worthy of any honor that could bo Lt stowei on him. (areenbackers are bitter in tln ir iuvec lives againstjthe resumption law, yt ev ery time one of them gets a gold or sil ver dollar he stows it away, lest the greenback party coming into i ow« r I e will want something solid lie can look ;.t aud recognize as money According to a new greenback theory a “cow might he called a dollar just as much as so tnauy grains of gold or silver.’ Just think of 10,000,000,000 cow-dollars, or dollar-cows, as you will. Ilay-es will be more in demand then than now. Boss Tweed when dying said he “be lieved the guardian angels would protect him.” If the guard : au angels are look ing for the kind of timber he was, we dont want any of ’em foolin’ around here with their protection. Ten billions of dollars or ten times ten billion is Pomeroy’s idea of the amount of greenbacks the government should issue. $2. r »00 per capita. The Ft.

That’s resumption. Where’s your rack and ruin, your des olation and despair that resumption was going to bring, eh? The banks all over the country paid gold out over the counter so far, and will probably continue. What will the greenbackers do uow that a greenback dollar will buy a gold or silver dollar. All over the country the clink ol the gold, sends the anti-resumptionists out in the cold. It is thought the government will re sume about October. Gold 100*. Fruit Prospects. Gate City.

Pleasant Free Press, (Dein.) Brick Pomeroy, the boasted apostle, and high priest of the Greenback party goes back on the new National party in the following language: “The Toledo convention has already done more harm to the Greenback cause than it can ever compensate for. Its ef fort to turn greenback men over, like so many cattle, to a comparatively new and weak organization has disgusted the ma jorltyof the Greeubackers throughout the country, and a great many of them swear they will see the convention and its man agers damned before they repudiate the Greenback party, or allow themselves to be handed over to any other organiza tion." If the Pomeroy Democrat , the Chicago Timet, and papers of that kind could be set off in a little hell by themselves some where, the world would wag along just as well. They are too supremely selfish to co-operate with anything or any body and as fast as the people become convinc ed of this fact, they will not co operate with them. A Model State Officer. Charles City Inielligeueer. The question who shall succeed the Stato officers whoso terms expire this fall is alroady being agitated. It seems to bo generally conceded, so lar as we have hoard, that Hon. Buren R. Sherman will be his own successor ai Auditor of State. Certain it is, few men in the State are so popular, or so deserving of their popularity. We have known Judge Sherman nearly twenty years, and we have always known him as a straightforward, up right gentleman, whose word was as good as a bond. We hope to see him renominated by acclamation, and be lieve ho will be. CORSETS!
