( MOOSE WHOM YE WILL HAVE TO
SERVE YOU.
Voters, the time is rapid I}' ap j
proaching when you will cast your
ballots for a man to serve you as
your representative in Congress for
two years. Before yju do so we
wish to call your attention to the two
men who seek your suffrages. This
election is to be an important one,
more so than for uiany years and it is
fitting that you should choose care
fully. On one side stands J. H. Weav
er as the candidate of the Nationals,
a party whose final object is the re
pudiation of the national debt. He
was for years a loud Republican, was
honored time and again with lucrative
offices at the hands of his party. He
was a Republican during 1873—4—f>—6
and part of 1877, years which he says
were years of hardship and suffering.
He' tried to securo office each of those
years, and when the greenback party
was in its infancy they asked him to
he their candidate for Congress and
he indignantly refused. He has long
boon an ardent worker in the temper
ance cause (for which all gooc men
respect him) but in order to gain votes
be has belied his record on that ques
tion and in communities where drink
ing was popular, has gone so far as
to apologize for being a temperance man.
He has declared himself still a Repub
lican, has pledged himself to Demo
crats and is tho candidate of the
green backers. He has ms.de three
distinct pledges to as many patties,
and is able to fulfill but one. In bis
great greed for office he lias shown
himself to be a demagogue of the most
truckling kind. On the other hand,
and in opposition to Weaver, the Re
publicans present you with the name
of Hon. E. S. Sampson; a man so
clean of public record, so pure in per.
sonal character that his opponents
have been wholly imable to make a
single charge of corruption or fraud
against him. He is a true man in
every sense of the word. True to
bis friends, true to his constituents,
true to his country, true to himself.
For four years fie lias served ihe
people of this district as their repre
sentative in Congress, and has served
them well. No charge ol infidelity
has ever been made against him. On
every question before Congress look
ing to a bettering of the condition of
the people he has always voted in the
affirmative, and with the same end in
view voted on all matters that were
for the benefit of the few against the
many. Ho was a gallant soldier dur
ing the war and as colonel of the
Fifth lowa did noble service. For
years prior to his election to Con
gress he was a most excellent and
highly esteemed judge ot the Sixth
Judicial District, and by hi* prudent
and impartial rulings won the regard
of all who knew him. His four years
in Congress have given him a stand,
ing and influence among the leading
men of the nation second to no lowa
man; some evidence of the confidence
in his skill and judgment is shown in
the fact that he was chosen last winter
to lead the contest for the passage of
the silver bill in the House and un
der his skilful management it was
carried against a strong influence.
He is a man of great possibilities and
if returned we may expect to sec the
gallant Sixth District better repre
sented than ever before, and our rep
resentative stand bead and shoulders
even with the strongest men of the
House. Until we adopt the plan of
continuing in office a representative,
we cannot expert to compete in abili
ty with the long-seated representa
tives of other sections. Representa
tives are not bom such, they are
grown, and men can only serve those
best who employ them the longest.
Let us look to our interests and vote
for the man who will serve us best.
This can only be done by casting your
ballots for K. S. Sampson.
Republicans, remember that the
man the green backers ask you to vote
for has pledged himself to the Demo
crats. This he dare not deny. He
does not deny it. His election means
that Democracy will rule in the House.
Democracy ruled by southern confed
erate guerillas, consequently your
vote for Weaver is a vote to place
power in the hands of the men who
grappled the nation by tho throat
and endeavored to choke the life out
of it; men who directed the firing of
the bullet or shell that struck down
upon the battle-field, your boy, your
brother or father. Can it be that
those who sought its destruction, shall
now rule the government, and that
by your votes l Can you expect
them to have that lovo for their coun
try that animated you in that ever
memorable struggle? Be careful,
then, what you do.
Tho dollur of the laborer is to-day
worth ninety-nine and one half cents
in gold. In a few months, by the
resumption policy oftho Republican
party, it will be made worth one
hundred cents. It is the purposo of
the Democratic party, by the repeal
of the Resumption law and tho
wildost inflation, to make the laborer
take for his wages an irredeemable
rag that will buy less t tan fifty cents
worth of flour or fuel.
The Ottumwa Courier says Judge
Sampson had large audionccs to hoar
him at Dahloncga and Agency City,
and the best of fooling
prevailed. Ho is creating a good
impression wherover ho is seen and
heard, and completely knocks tho
wind oat of Weaver’s demagogical
harangues. In this instance, as well
as every other, honesty proves to
bo decidedly tho best policy.
Nosby say«: “ When you want to
know eggsacklyhow to pay tho nash
nel debt, you want to find a man which
cood nevor meet his own obligashens.
He knows how it is himself, for he has
wrassled with finanshel probloms."
A LOOK AT THE PAST.
Thoughts th.it Live ami words thut stir
the Soul.
Extract from Bob Infrersoll’b Speech at In<liau
upolis.
The past rises before
me like a dream. Again wo are in the
great strugle for National life. W<*
hear ihe wounds of preparation —the
music ol the boisterous drums —the
silver voiees of heroic bugles. We see
thousands of assemblages, and hear
the appeals of orators; we see the palc
cheeks of women and tbe flushed facet
of men; ami in those assemblages v. v
see all the dead whose dust we ha\e
covered with flowers We lose sight
of them no more. We are with them
whet, ihey enlist in the great arm\
of freedom. We see them part from
those they love. Some are walking let
the last time in quiet woody plaot ?•
with the maidens they adore. Wo heat
ihe whisperings and the sweet vows o
eternal love as they lingeringly pan
forever. Others are bending over era
dies, kissing babies that are asleep.
Some are receiving ttie blessings of
old men. Some are parting who holt!
them and press them to their heart'
again and again, and say nothing; an.!
some are talking with wives, and en
deavoring with brave words, spoken
in the old tones, to drive from tlieii
hearts the awful fear. We see. then
part. We soothe wife standing iu th
door with the babe in her arms—stau
ding in the sunlight sohing—at tin;
turn ol the road a hand waves—she
uuswers by holding high in her loving
hands the child. He is gone, and fbi
ever!
We see them all as they march
proudly away under the Huunting
flags, keeping time to the wild, grand
music of war—marching down the
streets of the great cities, through
ihe towns and across the prairies,
down to the fields of glory, to do ami
lo die for the eternal right.
We go with them one and all. W«
are by their side on all the gory fields
in all the hospitals of pain, on all the
weary inarches. We stand guard wit"
them in tho wild storm and under the
quiet stars. We are with them iu r.i
vines running with blood—iu the fm
rows of old fields. We are with them
between contending hosts, unable lo
move, wild with thirst, the life ebbing
slowly away among the withered
leaves. We see them pierced by bull.-
and torn with shells in tlm trencher
by forts, and the whiilvvind of the
charge, where men becomeiion with
nerves of steel.
We are with them in the prisons ol
hatred and famine; but human speech
?an never tell what they endured
We are at home when the new*
JOines that they are dead. We see
the maiden in the shadow of her first
sorrow. We see the silvered head o!
the old man bowed with the last grid
The j.ast rises before us and we
ice four millions of human beings gov
erned by lbe lash; we see them bound
hand and foot; we hear the strokes
jf the cruel whips; we see the hound*
tracking women through tangled
iwamps; we see the babes sold from
he breasts of mothers Cruelly un
tpcakuble! Outrage infinite!
Four million bodies in chains,
tour million souls in fetters! AP
he sacred relations of wife, motliei
lather and child trampled beneath
he brutal feet of might. And all
his was done under our own lean
;iful banner of the free!
The past rises before us We
iear the roar and shriek of the burst
ng shell. The broken fetters fall*
rb esc beioes died. We look. In
itead of slaves we see men, and won:-
in, and children. The wand of pro
rrcss touches the auction block, the

Wo were in hopes to announce to
our readers to-day that the union
heretofore written of between tbe
Democrats and Grcenbackers, bad
been accomplished, and a union State
ticket agreed upon. For a week or
two negotiations have been in pro
gress, and at one time it was confi
dently hoped all obstacles had bton
removed. But, wo are sorry to say
that there lias been delay, and some
not very straight work done. Hou
?id. Camppell, Chairman oftho Dem
ocratic State Central Committee, was
here nearly u week, and it is certain
ly not his fault that this union has
not been accomplished. He has beon
ready and not only willing but anx.
ious to bring about this desirable re
sult, aud whether it is now arranged
or not, bo is entitled to the praise of
every Democrat and Greenback cr n
the State who desires reform and tho
overthrow of Republicanism in lowa.
Leading Democrats and Green,
backers arc confident this union or
consolidtion of tho two State tickets
will yet be affected bof'oro the close
of tho week, and in time to have the
new ticket sent to every county in the
State. We hope they are not mis
taken, and will greatly rejoice if this
is done.
Tbe causes of this delay in carry
ing out the well-know desires and
wishes of an overwhelming majority
of the Democrats and Grcenbackers
are known to us, but we have no
desire to state them so long as there
is any hope of this consol
dation. Should there bo no union,
however, then it will be tho duty of
those knowing the facts to lay them
before Ihe people, without fear, favor
or uffoction, and let the blame rest
where it belongs. The people have a
way of tbei.’ own in settling with
political tricksters, who for selfish
or pecuniary i eaeons betray those
who have generously trusted them.
They will do so in this caso, should
they know of any such work.

Ihe reader will readily see on ex
amination of the above just what tho
780 notes were—interest hearing
obligations— -just as really as the
bonds themselves Bill it should he
understood, too, that the larger pait
of the issues of the 7-SOs were in
greater amounts than the example
cited. Thus, the report of the Sec
retary of the Treasury shows that of
the issues of July 17, 1861, while
|7 ,778,900, was in sums of fifty dol
lars; there were in SIOO notes, fclO,
409,800; in SSOO notes, §35,851,500:
in $1 ,000 notes, §02,298,000. and in
§5,000 notes, *l4 800,000. Of the
issues of August 1-5, 1804, only §lB,
176,900 were in sums of fifty dollars;
in §IOO notes, $50,873,000: >n §SOO
notes, SB-5,821 000; in §I,OOO notes,
§118,528,000, and in §5,000 notes,
$20,830,000. 8o also,in the same
proportions as to the issues of June
15, 18On and Juiy 18, 1805, respec
tivley. These facts show conclusive
ly that to claim the issue of the 7 30
notes as having been apart of the
circulating medium—a part of the
volume of currency—in 1805, as was
done by Dr. McKinnie, and is done
by all greenback orators and organs,
is t-o put falsehood in the place of
trill h.
A Sonnet Article.
Hawkeye.
We have before.us a greenback organ,
which, in the course of a long column
and a half ot puerile slush gives expres
sion to the following sample of vapid
verbosity:
“ And their (the greenbacks’) purchas
ing power at par with coin, would be due
not to their being redeemable on demand
in specie, or to their being by law legal
tender, but to their convenience as cur
rency, and the confidence in tbe good
faith and solvency of the government.”
I'hey would he good, not because they
would ever be redeemed, but because
the people would believe that they would
be redeemed. Their purchasing power
would depend not on their redeemable
qualities, hut upon confidence iu the good
faith and solvency of the government.
Now, we will wager that a more utterly
absolutely idiotic sentiment was never
penned in the course of what claims to
be a sober argument. And the above is
but a lair sample of the lot. Now what is
the good faith of the government? Is it
anything, can it mean anything except
the intention of the government to
keep its promises. But the greenback
proposed by the writer above, would not
be or contain a promise to do or pay any
thing, consequently there could he no
such thing as good faith on the part of
the government. The only party who
could exercise any faith about it would
be tbe poor dupe who would take it for
money. And what does the solvency of
the government mean if it does not mean
its ability to pay its debts, or the ability
of the creditor to compel it to pay its
debts ? But if the greenback contains
no promise, it is uot the evidence of any
debt, and it could not be counted us a
debt in estimating the solvency of the
country. The solvency of the country
has an influence upon the present green
back because it is a promise to pay dol
lais. The good faith of the government
is vital to the value of the present green
back, and to do anything else than that
would be to act in very bad faith.
Probably no man in America has a
better general knowledge of our currency
legislation,jor a more thorough insight into
the practical workings of our monetary
system, than Comptroller Knox. When
before tho House Committee on Banking
and currency he made a number of points
that are worthy of especial piomiuence at
this time. A few of the leading of these
maybe thus briefly summarized:
J. it may be doubted if Congress has
tbe power lo issue Treasury notes which
shall be legal tender for all claims and de
mands against the Cuited States or to take
from the national banks the vested rights
to continue for twenty years, which they
have acquired under section 5 136 of the
Revised Statutes of the United States.
2. The experience of the couutry and
the judgment and opinions of Hamilton,
Dallas, Gallatin and Chase were against
the exclusive issue of treasury notes.
3. The profits, whioh the national banks
derive from the right of circulation are
much less than is generally supposed.
4* The abolition of National banks
will lead to the re establishment of State
banks.
5. The overthrow of the National bank
ing system will not be a saving to the Gov
ernment, but will occasion greatly in
creased expense aud loss to the people and
further derangement of the business of the
country.
Now stand up, Thurmau, Voorhees,
Hendricks et al, and hear what a Massa
chusetts Democrat has to say about you,
Geueral Whitney, chairman of the re
cent Massachusetts Democratic State Con'
veution, in his speech before that august
assemblage, said:
Why, ever since the days of Benton ant
Jackson, the Democratic party has stood
upon the constitutional ground that noth
ing but gold and silver, should be inad<
legal tender for any debt., or made so bj
any State in the Federal Union. But now
perctnnc, you ask whether some leading
men of our party at the West have not de
parted from this fundamental doctrine o!
the Democracy. P answer that they havt
not so departed. They say that a current']
can be maintained in this country, under s
defined limit, that shall always be redeem
able in gold and silver, and therefore wil
be of equal value ivlth gold and silver
but they udhere to the old Democratic
doctrine that gold and silver shall be the
legal tender.
Won’t some one be kind enough tc
present this extrict to the worthy met
named above and ascertain what they
have to say about It ?
SENSIBLE AND TIMELY WORDS. !
The ('alist** of Hard Times and Their
cure-contentment and Industry the
Key to Success.
From Presid< nt Spofford’s Opening Address at
lowa State Fair.
During the year there lias been a
degree of financial depression that is
fur from encouraging. It is needless
to recount in your hearing the up
heaval of the business of the country
since the panic of 1873. It is need
less that 1 tell you of the collapse of
hanks, of the utter bankruptcy and
ruin that came to merchants, and
manufacturers and miners, and t<> all
branches of legitimate business.
Politicians urn) assume a cause, and
may suggest a remedy, but the only
[•ause of the depression is extrava
gance of living, speculation, and a
resultant debt. 1 am now old in
years. 1 have been a citi/eu ot ibis
grand State for twenty-three years.
I have observed with tolerable caie
lulness the progress it has made, and
h .vo seen it in times when specula
tion blinded the eyes and ulino.-u
usurped the powers of reason, i
have seen it when all the people were
content with the slow, steady, regu
lar gains that ootno from preserving
industry and honest economy. 1
tell you that no limes are so hard as
when men go in debt, mortgage the
farm for a far off promised benefit,
and struggle; and toil, and sweat to
save their accumulation from the
iron.grip of debt. My remedy for
this depression in business is tor
every man in debt, to get out ju«t as
soon as lie can; and for every man
not in debt, to keep out, forever. Don’t
be alluded by glittering promises,
keep in the -Haight path of fair,
square, honest earning for fair,
square honest work. Then shall
prosperity smile on this broad land
as the sun shines in its meridian
splendor, gladdening all, vivifying
all, warming all, perfecting all! It
you desire a few more acres to your
farm; if you want more stock; or a
piano for your family; or to send the
boy or girl away from home to col
lege or seminary; or a carriage to
ride in to church; or a new implement
to harvest your crop; all these ate
well, hut do without any of their,
do without all of them, unless you
have the cash to pay down. lain
deeply in earnest on this very trite
question, and I wish every man and
woman in lowa could hear me say
what 1 declare in the strength of my
conviction, that debt eventually
means ruin and disaster. Do with
out what you seem to need rather than
to put upon your neck a yoke which
will burden you as long as you live,
and will leave a heritage of distress
upon the children whom you love
better than life. Having avoided
debt, 1 would suggest that the next
measure looking toward permanent
success, is a careful selection of the
best methods of carrying forward
your individual work. Having cho
sen a vocation, whether on the farm,
or office, or workshop, stld: to it. No
matter what a man’s position is, he
will now and then become dissatisfied.
The farmer will envy the preacher,
and the physician will envy the
blacksmith, the merchant will envy
the teacher, and the carpenter
will envy the lawyer. A word to
you all . my friends! Be
content; not that you should sit down
stolidly and never aspire to a higher
position, or a nobler plane of life.
There is a discontent that is divine;
andyou should heed its warnings; but
you should strive to excel in that po
sition which you have chosen. Let
the farmer become a better farmer,
by reading, by observation, by asso
ciation with farmers that know more
than he does. Let the physician be
come a better doctor by having a big
library on his shelves, and a bigger
one in his brains. Let the carpenter
be a better mechanic, and shoving
the jack plane at the same time con
sider the grand principles on which
his art is founded and from the car
penter let him become the designer,
the architect, and let him build his
own monument in a structure that
will endure long after less noble
things shall have perished. Oncoth
er thought; lam certain that none
can succeed who are not willing to
work. Every’ man must work. Some
people have stolen a living and found
a penitentiary or a dishonored name.
The hour, the darkest hour, the most
terrible hour, that ever came into the
life of a young man or woman, is that
particular hour in which he or she
thought to have a dollar without
“fairly’ and squarely” earning it by
work of hands or brain, and earning
it honestly.
The devices of men to get money
by wonderful schemes are as numer
ous as the blades of grass, avoid every
one of them! Work, solid, intelligent
work, will always win. It will bring
gold to y T our treasury; it will add to
y r our flocks and fields and merchan
dise and trade. What! Work will
do more than bring gold! It will
bring happiness, peace, joy’, blessed
ness. It will give you good diges
tion, sound sleep, mugniticent appe
tite, honor, power, glory’ and chil
dren’s children to rise up and call
you blessed. But idleness will clothe
you with rags, aud these rags will he
full of every sort of filth and vermin
that will exclude you from that heav
en which you can enjoy’ now’ and
here by’ steady, intelligent, persistent
work.
Of Course. Why Not l
Boone County Republican.
If the theory’of the Greenhackcis
is the true one, let us commence on a
small scale right hero in’ our own
county and test it. Lot tho people
authorize tho county’ supervisors to
issue, say $1 *>o,ooo in county’ war
rants, and in order to get them in
circulation let us build a new court
house and a couple of bridges. Then
we would have lots of county’ green
backs, and although they would draw
six per cent, interest, tlmy would
likely’ not be w orth, with the treasury
in the present condition, and until
a tax could be levied to meet them,
over about 75 cents on the dollar,
notwithstanding the fiat. Tho fiat
that would make them par would bo
tho one that should levy’ and collect
a tax sufficient to convert these
orders into cash at Dresentation*
A 4 per cent Government boud now
sells at par because it is non t ixable. To
tax it, say £ of 1 per cent, would reduce
the rate of interest to 3| per cent, and
if tho bond were sold at all it would have
to be sold at about 94 cents on tho dol
lar. Now will some of the greenback or
labor demagogues who are ranting about
taxation of government bonds t« 11 what
earthly difference it makes to the people
whether they take this six pf r cent differ
ence a little at a time by yearly taxation
from the bondholders or take it in a lump
in the shape of an increased price for
the bonds? No dodging. We want a
fair square answer, and if such a one is
not forthcoming it will bo because the
persons addressed are fairly convicted of
deceit hut lack the manhood to acknowl
edge the fact.
