RURAL MAIL DELIVERY. The growth of rural free delivery of mail as shown by the report of the as sistant postmaster general is a remark able revelation. Although in use but a very few years rural free delivery has been established in forty states and one territory. So far it has been undergo ing an experimental stage, each suc ceeding congress appropriating a little more money for its use, but it has now become so well established and its ben efits so fully demonstrated that there is no longer any question as to its practicability, It is here to stay. During the last year and a half, ac cording to the report, rural free deliv ery has been extended to ISO,000 persons at an expense of $150,000, or a per cap ita expense of S4 cents. As compared to an average expense of for each person served in small towns of 5.000 inhabitants or less, and in view of the far greater accommodation free deliv ery affords to a rural community, the comparison is an unanswerable argu ment in its favor. One of the most commendable fea tures about rural free delivery is the very evident fact that the people want it. In nearly every instance it-has been the concerted action of the farmers themselves that has secured a free de livery route for their community and that they enjoy its benefits and prize its privileges is clearly shown by the marked increase of mail business ac companying the establishment of each rural delivery route. We have been wont to consider the town resident slightly more cosmopolitan, a reader of more papers and magazines, a better patron of Uncle Sam's posloflice de partment than the country resident, •but the rural delivery routes had not been established six weeks in Marshall county before it was seen that the country residents were receiving and sending more pounds of mail per per son than their city-bred cousins who had always been accustomed to the convenience of daily mail delivery. The benefits of free delivery of mail matter to rural districts are many. Trie system serves in part to destroy the ..monotony of farm life, the curse to our rural people. They are brought into closer touch with one another and the •world in general. Its educative influ ence is unlimited. Economically it is a great saving to the farmer in time and by keeping him better posted as to the markets he gets a better price for a better educated, more intelligent, cul tured and reflned race than was ever known on earth before? BUSINESS AT LEADING POINTS. There has been" no break worthy of note in the general volume of business. At leading points, according to Dun's review, there is a wholesome tone in trade. In Chicago retail trade suffers from unfavorable weather, but sales keep up well. Mall orders are fair and shipments on previous orders continue liberal, and in underwear and dress business is excellent. Wholesale houses in most lines are quite busy, with grati fying improvements in notions and more confident buying at advanced prices in boots and shoes. Large sales are reported for early delivery in ladies' suits, cloaks, waterproof garments, cor sets and furs, and accounts are good from clothing, hats and caps, and men's furnishing houses. In Philadelphia money is lirm at 5Vi to 6 per cent. Scarcity of cars retards deliveries of anthracite and bituminous coal, for which the demand is good. Trade continues steady in iron, steel and hardware, and wool is strong and active, with advances in many grades. Manufacturers are buying more freely, and the entire textile trade shows a decided improvement over last year. At Boston merchandise markets are strong and active, with retail trade im proving, and large sales of seasonable goods. At Baltimore general trade continues good, though the demand lor some com modities falls off slightly. Retail trade is good owing to fair weather. his products. It induces him to build bet ter roads as the government requires a certain standard of road perfection be fore free delivery will be attempted. It has many other advantages more or less indirect. It has been noticed in many instances that where the rural delivery has been established the co operative country telephone has been quick to follow, and it does not require any great amount of Imagination to look forward a few years and see the electric railway radiating from every town into the farming districts, bring ing those isolated communities as near to town life as are the present-day suburban districts surrounding our great cities. The rural free delivery is here. It will remain. Within a very few years It will be found throughout every township of every county in such a state as Iowa, and when it has spread Its many blessings over this land we may look for a vast improvement in our farming classes. The monotony of the farm largely dispelled, brains and energy will be more inclined to remain, which will result in a better, more sci entific agriculture, a more intelligent and prosperous class of people, a denser rural population and conse quently more and better patrons at our trade centers, buyers of more and bet ter commodities. When the rural de livery has brought the telephone and both have been followed by the electric railway, which in turn furnishes light and power, who knows but what the farm will become the ideal residence placc? Who knows but what the tide of population may in time be turned back to the farm and upon this land will grow up a people stronger and richer, enjoying a purer and freer life, a vastly more healthful existence and by means of Its human institutions At Detroit the demand for loans is quite strong, with rates lirm, and col lections good. General jobbing and maufacturing business shows satisfac tory increase, with prices firm for all leading staples. Lake- traffic is very large in volume, with rates higher than a year ago. At Minneapolis money is easier and in fair demand, with rates lower. Flour is dull, scarcity of cars and high freight rates preventing exports, though do mestic trade is fair. Retail activity continues in seasonable merchandise and general collections are good. In St. Paul trade has been excellent and collections very satisfactory. At St. Louis retail trade has shown marked improvement especially in clothing, shoes, hats, dry goods and millinery, in the order named. In job bing lines the increase is about the same as last week, with shipping capa city taxed in several lines, and night work required to keep pace with orders. One of the financial features of the week is large real estate lendings at 3',-a per cent. At Kan Francisco there is much ac tivity in all departments of trade, with imports large and distributed. The price of quicksilver has advanced to $50, with unusually light stocks. Money is in. good supply at unchanged rates, and collections are comparatively easy. At New Orleans business continues to improve and .collodions are good. The cotton market is inactive and weak. Sugar is coming in ami bringing good prices, and there is also a good demand for molasses. Exports of grain con tinue good.. Money is The Richmond Times, a gold derno ratic journal, believes in expansion for several business reasons: "This Philippine question is a'ques tion of business, and the American peo ple are essentially a business people. We have a distinct duty to perform in restoring peace and order and estab lishing good government in the Philip pines, and after that shall have been done this government is going to util ize the position which it holds in the Philippines to the best advantage of the cotton producers of the south and the manufacturers and exporters in all parts of the United States. We are confronted with a practical condition and it must be dealt with in a practical way. The theorists must stand asid and let men of affairs take hold." This is substantially the opinion of the Atlanta Constitution, otherwise a democrat of the straightest sect. It re fuses to consider the Philippines from a political point of view. "Let politi cians scramble," it says "let doctri naires debate, but the man with the bale of cotton wants to sell it and sell it quickly. We are entitled to our share in the world's trade by the quickest, shortest and most direct route. This claim has the right-of-way, and the man in the cotton field will he the beneficiary." Even in darkest democratic Missis sippi, Senator Sullivan, otherwise a rigid Bryanite, is an expansionist. And from a Mississippi newspaper, the Hernando Times-Promoter, comes this warning to Bryan and the other demo cratic expansionists: "If democracy incorporates an anti expansion plank in its platform, right here in Mississippi hundreds of demo crats will vote for McKinley. Men who have uniformly voted for the nominee, who risked their lives and spent their money that democracy might triumph over republicanism, and who fought for Southern rights from Manassas to Appomattox, have stated to me that rather than to Indorse the fight that is being made upon McKinley and his policy of expansion, they will vote for the republican nominee. If many Mis sissippi democrats pursue this course, what a rush there will be to republic anism In those states where it Is not considered treason to bolt the nominee even if he Is a yaller dog!" It is evident that business consider ings shade the views and Influence the opinions of many Southern men and that they will not tolerate the "im perialistic" notions of Bryan et al. THE U. P. AND NORTHWESTERN. As reported by the Omaha Bee, rail road men are speculating over future traffic arrangements of the Union Pa cific, the ten years agreement with the Chicago & Northwestern expiring soon. The Bee says: "In railroad circles yesterday there was much interested speculation rela tive to an important epoch which has been reached by the Union Pacific and Northwestern railroads. Ten years ago, Nov. 4. 1SS9, an agreement was entered into betwen these two great systems which provided for a close interchange of business. The Union Pacific had, at that time as now, the strong line oper ating between the Missouri river and the Pacific coast, while the Northwest ern was one of the most influential lines east of the Missouri river. During the ten years that this agreement has been in effect it has been closely adhered to by the two systems and the business of each, both in passenger and freight de partments. has been greatly enlarged. Yesterday the time limit of this agree ment expired and railroad men are dis cussing the probable outcome of the matter. Whether or not the agreement will be again entered into is questiona ble, and In this feature of the matter interest is centered. A few months ago the opinion was quite generally ex pressed that when the Illinois Central should reach Omaha the existing rela tions between the Northwestern and Union Pacific would be severed as soon as the contract entered Into between the two railroads ten years ago would permit. This opinion was based have 111 and fair supply. good demand THE SOUTH AND EXPANSION. There is a growing sentiment in the south in favor of expansion, which the] New York Sun notices with approval, while Col. Bryan hah been "shooting and spouting through Nebraska and oaperingr frantically around the dec laration of independence." This grow ing opinion in the south is based on common sense business ideas. The-, views expressed by Senator .Morgan, and more recently by Senator JIi.-Lau rin, as to the necessity of the China trade to the cotton interests of the south, are commending themselves to cool heads in that section. Eyen the hot-headed Tillman is moving toward annexation. 011 fact that E. H. Harriman owns a large block of the stock of both the Union Pacific and Illinois Central, and is an important factor in the control of both •roads. On the other hand, he has prac tically no interest in the Northwestern, while the Vanderbilts, who control the balance of power in the Northwestern, have but little influence with the Union Pacific. "Well informed railroad men hold the opinion that the Union Pacific will be wary of renewing an iron-clad agree ment with the Northwestern. They ex press the belief that perhaps a tempor ary agreement may be drawn up be tween the two systems, but that it will be of such a character that the Union Pacific will be in no wise bound to turn over to the Northwestern all its east bound freight and passenger traffic. The general belief is. however, that if any agreement is entered into by the Union Pacific it will be with the Illinois Central, and pending its arrival into Omaha the I"nion Pacific will be impar tial in the distribution of its east-bound business. Others assert that the Union Pacific will in the future direct its bus iness from Omaha over all the eastern lines, giving each a sort of a pro rata share in accordance with the amount which it shall receive in return. "In opposition to all these opinions is the statement that the Northwestern and Union Pacific were never'on more friendly terms than at present and these two systems form an important link in the proposed transcontinental line which has aroused so much .interest in the business and financial world dur ing the last few weeks. Again, the fact is cited that within a very recent time the Northwestern and Union Pacific practically solicited their trans continental passenger business by in augurating the new train service be tween Chicago and the Pacific coast and operating trains which run through from Chicago over the Northwestern. I Union Pacific and Southern Pacific tracks without the slightest change, "Collating ail these facts the railroad world lias a more interesting nut to crack than it has had for some time. Officials who are in a position to know something definite regarding this mat ter refuse to talk on the subject and consequently every railroad man holds that his opinion is as good as any one's -else/' IOWA PRESS COMMENT. "With Prof. Jlirron resigned every body seems resigned." observes the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. The Ottumwa Courier suggests that "it is now in order for somebody to start a fund to buy Admiral Dewey a wedding present." The Iowa Falls Citizen thinks Bryan ought to have been a revivalist instead of a politician. The Des Moines Leader looks upon Prof. Herron's resignation as a victory for capitalistic influence. "The prohibition and tfhe United Christian parties must be Miven credit for conducting a quiet, ^ulemanly campaign," observes the Sioux City Journal. For years," says the Clinton Age, "it has been the custom of prison offi cials to let out prison labor to private parties. They are continuing that cus tom. It is nothing new. But it is just as great an outrage on free labor as it jver was." The Lynnvilie Ledger declares that "Prof. Herron, of Grinneil College, has committed the best act of his iife—he has resigned. The professor is possessed of t'he very bad habit of setting his outh to going and then going off and leaving it to talk and this has brought him all kinds of trouble during the past few years.

United States Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin, said in an Interview on the 3d: "There has been talk of my opposi tion to the administration, especially as regards Its Philippine policy. It is all bosh. I shall stand by McKinley and the national administration through thick aiid thin. I shall consent to noth ing less than vigorous prosecution of the war against the insurgents until order is restored, the insurrection quelled and the flag honored and re spected as it is at home. We must keep the Philippines. Then let congress decide what must eventually be done with the islands. That is an after con sideration. Put down the rebellion, es tablish the authority of the United States as supreme. This is the first consideration. There has been too much talk about what we're to do with the Philippines.. First, crush the last spark of rebellion. This is where I stand on the colonial policy of the administra tion." Ram's Horn avers that a man with an aim will soon be a man with a name. In the last fiscal year 311,715 emi grants arrived in this country and ex hibited to the immigration officers $5, 414,462 In cash. About 20 per cent were illiterates, an improvement over some former years. The clouds have been weeping and the rain drops pattering as a requiem for those who fall in the mighty storm of ballots today. .* the A Texas court has decided that a combination cannot escape the trust law by promising to reduce prices, be cause such power also enables them to advance them without restraint. The warlike Filipinos are getting into a corner where they cannot escape Uncle Sam's gloved hand. In his annual report Secretary Of the Treasury Gage will repeat in a general way his recommendation for the estab lishment of a gold standard law and for such reforms in the banking laws as will give to the country a more elastic currency. He believes it to be essential that the note issuing and redeeming functions of the treasury should be en tirely separated from-its ordinary op erations relative to revenues and ex penditures. Admiral Dewey is setting a new fashion in Washington. He sends llowc-rs to his fiancee every day.

Every three months in the province of Smolensk, Russia, husbands and wives are chosen by the chance draw ing of a lottery tocket. The tickets cost one ruble (60 cents) each. There only one prize to be drawn, and it con sists of the sale of the tickets, amount ing to 5,000 rubles ($3,000), together with a woman described as being of no ble blood. The tickets are sold only to men, and the lucky winner of the prize will have to marry the damsel if he takes the 5.000 rubles. If, however, he be already married he is at liberty tc turn over the money and the woman to any friend whom he may wish to put in for such a good thing. If the winner should be willing to marry, but is not found to be to the damsel's taste, then they are to be excused from matrimony and permitted to divide the rubles. Gen. Joe Wheeler writes from the Philippines that the wealthy classes there fear that property rights will suf fer by universal suffrage and thinks a reassurance to the contrary might have good effect. Fred White's 'S3 figures are marked down to "nein." Bryan is leaning on the result of the election in Nebraska for further sup port, while President McKinley is planting his feet upon Ohio for a better standing. The Greater American exposition at Omaha -closed $100,000 in debt. This il ustrates the folly of trying to do too much in this direction.

L00KLR-0N IN IOWA us rich men can be Christians, Presi dent Gates would give us the advan tage of a big needle with a big eye. Of President Gates' ability It goes without saying that he is the peer of anything in the weBt. An old neighbor of the president thus expresses it: "He's all right if he'd let that darn foolishness of Herron's alone." Mrs. Rand, whose motives none have ever questioned, and whose latest' ac tion proves that she is a real friend to Iowa College, adds much to her reputa tion as such by leaving this endowment Intact, only providing that Applied Christianity must be taught and the interest of the fund devoted to that purpose. Professor Herron himself comes off with flying colors. His letter of resig nation is manly, and he does not take back a thing. Not every one has read his letter in full. There is so much In It that can have general application to all cases of this kind that the writer will pick out a few of the strongest statements. To the trustees he says: "None the less, your position is trus tees is made more serious and difficult each year by the recurring demands for the removal of the chair of Applied Christianity and its occupant. These demands come not only from the press and from public men who feel Indig nant at my teachings concerning prop erty, but from old and sincere friends of the college, who feel that its well being Is being jeopardized because of the lack of support from men of finan cial means and of Influence among the churches. The self-sacrifice and devo tion of these old friends of the college demand full and sympathetic consider ation. Whether they be mistaken or not, It seems to be the now generally accepted opinions of your* constituen cy that men who have money will.not give to the college while I remain in its faculty that the churches will not support the college because of my In terpretation of the teachings of Jesus." That is much better stated than when in this column sometime ago the same ideas .were brought out. And here is an extract that shows Professor Herron Is above petty spite and revenge. No one doubts that his Influence could have been used detri mental to Iowa College: "By the terms ot si I or the Tiiiies-Kvoubllcan. Ackley. Nov. 7.—All's well that ends well. Professor Herron has resigned and it must be confessed the whole af fair has been as well managed as some of us outsiders could have done. First the action of the trustees was admirable in patiently waiting for the voluntary resignation of I3rofessor Herron, which was inevitable, and thus escaping the odium which would attach Itself if a member of the college faculty was removed for uttering his radical sentiments. Free speech is still alive at Urlnneii. Secondly, President Gates keeps his word intact. The matter has been ar ranged "satisfactorily," as he promised the trustees last June, this conditioned upon no official action at that time, And the writer voices the sentiment of many (not all) who are glad that this "satisfactory arrangement" retains President Gates as the head of Iowa College. While it is generally under stood that President Gates has "fa thered" Applied Christianity as taught by Professor Herron, the writer feels safe in asserting that there i» no public utterance of the president on record to prove it. Itather can it be Btated that President Gates stands for Applied Christianity itself believes that a col lege needs a chair where such ethics are taught, and while Professor Her ton could not understand bow any of the endowment the department of Applied Christianity can remain in the college only by my voluntary retirement from the chair or by my removal by the three special trustees of the endowment. To this vol untary retirement Mrs. E. D. Rand has finally consented. I am entirely un willing to take this endowment of $35, 000 from the college, and am happy to be able tu leave it, through Mrs. Rand's generosity. Upon my retirement the endowment will be so changed as to be turned over to the college, without any conditions attached thereto. I would only ask that the faculty and trustees, in selecting my successor, give the gra cious consideration due to Mrs. Rand's wishes in such a selection. I trust that, under more conservative teaching, the department may have a noble and abiding history in the minds and ideals of the generations of the students who shall come and go. And I pray that my nearly seven years' relation to Iowa College may count for something in the services and memories of the college." And In closing he makes some gen eral statements that his ardent friends who proposed to keep him in the fac ulty regardless of results would do well to commit to memory: "Out of justice to you as trustees, I feel that 1 ought to say to you that I am not sure but that those who refuse to support my presence and freedom to teach in the college may have a right to refuse such support. Anyhow, with out regard to the right of either of us, controversy is not a good inlluence to be about a college or university. And, aside from controversy, I question whether an existing college or univer sity is any place for the sort of work I am trying to do. I do not know that a present-day educational Institution can rightly make place for the mere apostle of an ideal, whether he be right or wrong. Institutional education has chiefly to do with what has been said and done rather than with whatsis to be said and done In the future. Any proposed change of institutions, any ideal of a new mode of society or life or industry, has always been a subject of conflict and dispute. The truth is al ways rudely and Imperfectly stated by its earlier apostles. The imperfection and conflict have been as unavoidable as the truth. But educational institu tions, as now organized and supported, dependent as they are on gifts of money from the existing social order, afford no place for the teaching of dis turbing social ideals, though it can not be that human truths that are new will always be outcast and vagabond upon the earth, even when rudely spoken, until accepted and made a part of the past. As college education la now or ganized, however, I question any man's right to teach that which the college constituency does not want. He may as as Individual teach the people who are to hear him, but not as a member of an educational institution which he does not represent." The last two sentences cover the whole issue so "satisfactorily" ar ranged and brought to a close. A Card of Thanks.
