Bryan has issued the following statement on the election result: "The election has gone against us by a decisive majority. The returns are not all in, and it is impossible at the present time to analyze them or to say what causes contributed most tii the republican victory. "We made our fight upon a plat form^ which embodied what we be lieved to be .good for the American people, but it is for tlia people them selves to decide what laws they de sire and what method of government they prefer. I have faith that the publicity which we asked for will yet commend itself to the 'American peo ple that the election of senators by the people will be secured, that the iniquities of the trust will arouse an opposition that will result in the elim lnatlon of the principle of private monopoly. 1 am confident that the people will see the necessity for the lubor legislation and the tariff re duction which our platform demand ed. I, am confident.too, that the ed ueatlonat worlc done ih this campaign will result In securing greater pro -•ctrdn"' to":lrtwh" Still Hopes for Reform. "These are the mirst prominent re forms for which we labored and I be lieve that these reforms will yet come, together with more effective regulation of railroads tind indepen dence (or the Filipinos. I desire to commend the work of our natlnal committee. I am entirely satisfied with Mr. Alack as the chair man and with the members of the coi mittee. I do not see what they could have done more than they did, and as for myself I put forth every effort in my power to secure victory for our cause. The nomination came from the hands of the voters: I have obey ed their command and have led as best I could. 'Words will not express my grati tude for the devotion which has been shown by millions of democrats dur ing the last twelve yearsi Neither am I able to adequately express my appreciation for the kind words which have been spoken since the election. Wants Not Office Only. If I could regard the defeat ])\.rely a personal one, I would con .Uler il ):'essing raUn-r than a mis fortune, for I am relieved of the Imrdens and responsibilities of an office that Is attractive only in pro portion as it gives an opportunity to render a larger public service. But I shall serve as willingly in a private capacity as In a public one. God does not require great things of us honly requires' that we improve the opportunities for sprvice present ed by private life. 'In this hour of national defeat find some consolation in the cordial support given by my neighbors, by the citizens of Lincoln, and by the people of the state of Nebraska. With a democratic governor and a demo cratic legislature we shall be able to put into practice so much of the Denver platform as relates to state legislation, and I trust that our state will set an example that will be an influence for good in the nation. GOV BOIS OFFERS SOLUTION OF FARM HAND PROPOSITION. Former Governor Horace Boies has written the following letter to a Waterloo paper: In a recent issue of Wallace's Par mer I read an article entitled: "The Farm Labor Problem." The writer clearly recognizes the grave import ance of the subject he discusses and aBks: "What then, shall we do to in crease the number of farm laborers?" and his answer is: "Frankly, we doh't know." Mr. Wallace has here suggested the gravest practical problem with which the people of Iowa have to deal. His answer to his own question is the on ly answer that can be made to it un der present conditions. To my mind, however, it suggests, another, equally Important. What would be the effect upon Iowa farms, if by legislation or otherwise, we could rd the state of its forheign population? There has been much in my own experience and that of others with which I am fa miliar to suggest this question. I may be excused for referring to ri A:./Cw2 soime of them in connection Willi tku fact that for more than a decade tike population of our state lifcs- be£n steadily declining. What I have in this world'consists, chiefly of a tract of'twenty-five hundred acres of agri cultural land located in Grundy coiih ty, tbis state. For forty years thl land has occupied much of jhy atten tion. For many years I tried to cul tivate some of it with hired help! Bar ing that time much of my most e' dent help was fotfelgh born. The tiB came, when, by reason of the scan ty of competent help could not ford to cultivate my own land. I' then divided the tract into te different farms and for. many, yea! have rented these to tenants. Tl situation on these "farms" at. preseilt does not vary largely from what |t has been for many years. There* now occupied by ten different anil distinct famiiies. Of these, six ai fcreign born Germans, one of Qermai descent but born in this country, oi of English and one American. On these farms there are now «ei.. "ployed, by the season six farm handi and one hired girl. Of the'men^ tw are foreign' born Germans, and 01$ is an American. The girl is a vej^f recent German immigrant. To .show something of the situation, so'far as female help, on the farms is concern# let me refer to her experience., si nop she reached here as it was rfelat^i to me. A short time since, a farmed living eighteen miles from wliere tlKtS girl is nbw employed came to see and offered her four dollars a wfee^, to go to his home and work for hiitti This she declined, .because-she coulu1 neither speak nor understand his lan guage. A lew days later, another} from ten miles away in a different di rection, sought her -services and 'b^ fered her four and a half dollars a week to go with him. This she.-de.' clined for the same reason, and ac cepted service in the family -of a German farmer-at three dollars a week for the winter and four pie re-1 mainder of the season. ffew with Iotva people who had left our State never to return to live. A few" weeks since, I had occasion to visit a sparcely settled district in western Canada. In the year that had passed since my last previous visit, four families from Iowa had «oved to that neighborhood, three of them to became permanent settlers, and a fourth to improve wild land and rent it and return to this state. Each one of the three permanent set'.? lei's was a German farmer, with ills wife and children. In my own and nearby neighboring cities there are four different land companies, whose business it is to purchase large tracts of cheap agri uiturpl lands in Canada and western states of our own, and then solicit homeseekers from Iowa and specu lators to go with them and settle on these cheap lands or buy tlje same and hold them for sale at. a higher pi ice. In this business each company makes semi-annual trips with private cars filled with Iowa farmers and Iowa Investors in search of homes or place to invest thelq. money, and through this source a constant stream of Iowa people and Iowa. capital is pouring over the borders of our state never to return to It again. Is it pos sible for any thoughtful man, loyal to the best interests of our state, to contemplate the situation as it is, wihout feeling that something Is nec essary to stem the fearful tide that Is depleting her population, scattering her wealth to the four corners of the world? And to accomplish this,. what needed most? Is this a hard prob lem to solve? If anyone is in doubt let him go to her naked fields stripped of the bone and and brawn that is necessary to make them bios som like the rgse, and fill her gran aries with food for a hungry world. It is men we need. Men, whose bands are hard with toil. Men and women who will go to the country and stay on the farm. Where are we to find them? Stop and think. Is It American boys or American girls who will do this? We know better. There is one source, and one alone, from which manual laborers in the house and out of it must come to us, li they come at all, and that is the overcrowded districts of the Old World. It is there we must find the muscle that works our mines, builds and repairs our railroads and drives the plows to till our feoll. Take away what we now have of this and Iowa would become a desert lu a year her mines -would close, her railroads dwindle to decay, and her farms be overgrown with weeds instead of grain. What, then, doeB prudence suggest should be done to Insure the future prosperity of our state? Do we need laws to encourage or laws to retard Immigration to our state? So far as our farmers arer concerned, there are few countries in the old world from which efficient help can come. Among these Germany is the first, Sweden Norway and Denmark the others from which we can expect much help Qr this kind of either sex. The Immigrants from these conn- t.. MANCHESTER, TOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1908 VOL. XXXIV--N0. 40 The only baking powder made from Royal Grape Cream of Tartar, the officially approved ingredient for a wholesome, high-class powder Then Is (niter deception ta the ule of hak ClMtfar ofcKrre tke lakel ul be tries cotne to us with habits of their own that have been the growth of centuries In the fatherland. Among these, is the almost universal use in a- moderate way, of the mildest and least harmful intoxicants, such as wiue and beer. To many of our own people such use seems harmful, but to these people It is an innocent and •harmless as the use of tea or coffee among ourselves. SUt' Sol It was my privilege to be prepenl at the annual picnic of the Iowa How-have we met this habit of (heirs, ^innocent as it 81 ciety In Los Angeles, California, lasi winter. At that gathering more ttaatf fifteen thousand people "from Iowa registered their names with-the coun-» ty from which they came. A' Jof them, like myself, »ere tourists came back to Iowa in the spring, ..but the great bulk of the immense throng of pturdy men, .women .and chttOjren had left Iowa for a' permanent real* deijce there. And this was af- sing] point in a state'nearly one thlibiisani! seemB ation in every other locality/- of the .'state. In. time the law Worked badly in a political way' against the party that enacted it, and then the same party, without repealing the first, enacted an'otber'by which certain persons may with Impunity violate the first law, provided they do so In a certain spec ified way, particularly pointed out by the second law. Among others it Is provided that the party who is to be protected against violations of our libttory aw shall immune himself lu a single' room, with one line of ingress' and egress, without furniture of any kind to adorn its interior, with unshaded windows looking out upon a public street, and then lie must see thatjthe accessory of the crime he is aboutto cpmmlt' stands straight up and down while he .'swallows the pro hibited draught. It he does all this and much more without swerving a hair's breadth t'fom the plan provided by the Act, he cdii appear to one law to safeguard him against unlimited violations of another equally solemn statute of the same state. We could have made this last law little more ridiculous in the eyes of foreign residents if we had pro vided that "they should stand on their heads instead of their feet while they sipped their wine and beer. Now what is the harvest of these laws? if we search for good they have produced do we find it? If there less Intemperance in Iowa than •tere was before their enactment? 1 so, how la it shown? But turn to the other side what, are their evils? In the first place, a deep-seated contempt foe all their provisions by every man who feels that his own manhood his own inr assalled by their provisions, and the men who believe this in lava Include include almost every foreigner In th» state and a "vast number at our own people as well. The result Is willingness on every hand. In many communities of this state to see their laws treated with contempt and protest even to the verge of purging In our courts known violators of the same. Their attempted enforcement often arrays neighbor against neighbor, class against class, race against race. And still the unfortunate wrong goe on. On one side, from pulpit, press and rostrum the appeal Is heard Give us a state constabulary. Hit the bulls-eye by impeachment of the judge that W'M n°t Jump to the front iu efforts to enforce these laws. Re move the prosecuting attorney, that does not do the same. Indict the po lice officer that lags in his duty here whatever the cause. Hiss on the sleuth that trails the foreigner for the money that's in the law. And on the other, a cold determined, defiance of the law. A great and growing army of law breakers, An open field beckoning the boot-legger to come and ply his hideous' traffic In the dait The drug store often converted into menace worse than the saloon.
