—Tim Walker, as the Secretary of
a State Greenback convention, is an
exhibition of cheek that Tim only can
—At all events, however distasteful
the “Co-operation” movement in Davis
county is to Republicans, it puis tbe
Greeubackers into better company than
they have been in for several years.
—Why don’t Weaver come down to
Davis county aud pound the kicking
Grteulackers into line t WRat is James
afraid of ? l>o the Davis county Green
hackers know him better than the
outsiders ?
—All the Democratic legislative
nominations iu Wapello county are
from Ottumwa, and comprise a Mayor
who permits everything to run wide
open, one clever sort of a fellow; and
one representative of the bummers in
person. It is a had lot.
—The Ottumwa Courier lias been
resurrecting very many of the hitter
utterances of Bam Evans, when he was
connected with the Ottumwa Copper
head, but now with the Democrat. The
utterances are simply outrageous, hut
only a faint presentation of the copper
head venom that was voided on the
soldiers aud Union cause. We know
that Sam Evans is heartily ashamed
of that period of his editorial life, and
hence we do not parade his shame here.
He has been punished enough.
—“We do not deuy,” frankly says the
Mobile Repister, “that the superior in
telligence of the Southern whites has
led them, iu localities where the ne
groes preponderate, to resort to various
devices to avoid the rule of ignorance
and dishonesty.” So they put in by
fraud the noble white men who then
proceed to steal their own satisfaction.
Rather than see the colored man exer
cise the right of suffrage freely, aud
have the result take force, they would
see their several States deluged iu the
blood of the black man—just as they
deluged Mississippi in 1875, and in
spots many times since.
One of the Democratic papers of
this city has expressed a wonderful love
for the colored man and brother. It is
a matter of record that the chief man
agers of that concern, for years, have
had nothing but condemnation for the
colored man—hitter, and unrelenting.
They have carried on that sort of a war
fare steadily ever since the colored men
came here to work in the mines. They
have done this publicly and privately,
and now for them to appear in the role
of doling out honeyed words is a piece
of hypocrisy as disgraceful as it is dis
honest. The colored men of Mahaska
county know these things to be so, and
they need not he discussed one moment.
These Mahaska Democrats believe in
the old Southern idea that this is a
Whiteman’s govtrnment, and on that
basis govern themselves.
—At the Republican headquarters iu
Des Moines, some inquisitive colored
man digs up a bone from the Democrat
ic political graveyard by stating that
the Democratic State Convention of
1»68, adopted the following resolution
in its platform of principles:
Revolved, That we are opposed to conferring
the right of suffrage upon the negroes in lowa,
and that we deny the right of the General Gov
ernment to interfere with the question of
suffrage in any of the States of the Union.
And then goes to say that the col
ored men of lowa, whose votes the
Democratic party of lowa are very
solicitous about just now, want to
know, you know, if Judge Brannan,
who is that party’s choice for Judge of
the bupreme Court, is the same Bran
nan of the Second District who was
nominated for Presidential Elector at
the time the above resolution was
adopted, and who accepted the nomi
nation and the platform, aud made his
canvass on the latter. They want to
know, further, if Mr. Copperhead
Whiting was not a delegate to that
Convention, and did not accept and
vote for that resolution. These color
ed men want some Democratic light on
liiis subject. They are evidently very
“offensive partisans.”
It was an appreciative audience of
ladies and gentlemen that gathered at
the Opera House last Tuesday after
noon, to hear the Hon. R. G. Horr, of
Michigan, upon the political issues of
the day. The speech, of two hours
length, literally sparkled with gems of
wit, and the points made were as
barbed arrows to the opposition, yet
were in nowise personal or offensive,
only so far as the truth regarding a
f rag rant past could be offensive to a
Democrat. The inconsistency of the
present fusion of Democrats and Green
backers in lowa was so clearly shown
up that the most obtuse G. B. could
hardly fail to realize that this year, at
least, he is certainly the latter extremi
ty of the Democratic canine. The
National issues were ably presented,
aud the division lines so plainly marked
that any one could understand them.
The novel presentation of the great
doctrine of protection, the creature of
the Republican party, as made by the
distinguished speaker, will not soon be
forgotten by his auditors, or its impress
soon leave their minds. It was the
whole problem in a nutshell—our
country first—other countries after
ward. The hollow pretense of. the
Democratic regard for the Union soldier
was disposed of by the statement that
out of two thousand soldier appoint
ment* made by the present administra
tion, all but eighty odd were rebel
soldiers, and the citation of instances
within our own knowledge in lowa,
where maimed and diseased Union
soldiers have been ousted from posi
tions competently filled bf them, and
their places filled by jail birds and un
repentant Copperheads.
Bo we might go through the entire
speech, a synopsis of which appears
elsewhere, but would fail to give our
readers a correct idea of the peculiar
power of the speaker over an audience;
the sledge hummer force of his telling
arguments; the brilliancy of his wit, or
the peculiar pungency of his sarcasm,
trailed m it was in refii&d language.
Mr. Horr well deserves his brilliant
reputation as a political speaker, and is
a power for good wherever he goes.
Dux only regret is that a larger audi-
ence was not present to hear him. You
that were not there, should read the
synopsis we present in this issue, and
ponder well the truths presented.
You are not afraid to go back and re
call some of last year’s campaigu talk V
You remember how you—every one of
you— Messenger and all—just fairly
danced about that surplus that the
wicked Republicans had hoarded in the
treasury. It was an immense amount
over four hundred millions of money V
Yon will all remember the figures, and
also the promises that you made, on
behalf of your allies, that that vast
sum of money would be put at work,
paying tbe national debt, reducing in
terest, and starting the business indus
tries of the country? That’s just what
you said. Dear old Brother Harbour
just tooted loud and long on that —and
so did you all V
By one thousand majority Grover
got New York and got in. How about
those promises V What has been done
alniut that surplus ? Have the calls
for bonds come out with old time, Re
publican frequency? Have you seen
any of them lately—or have you seen a
single one? We guess not. In fact
your promises, on behalf of Grover,
have failed to be realized—and not one
bond has been redeemed since Dan
Manning took his seat! Now, is'nt
that a fact ? Is it not also a fact that
that the surplus in the treasury, accord
ing to the last statement, is about $65,-
000,000 larger now than last March?
That is equal to a contraction of just
that much, is’nt it? That means that
Wall street shall have just that much
much greater squeeze on the country,
don’t it? These things being so, what
opinion can the honest greenbacker
have of the man Weaver when he says
that he endorses every act of the
Cleveland administration, and is now
leading every mother’s son of you to
support the doctrine that you have
condemned ever since the day that you
departed from the old parties and set
up in party housekeeping for your
selves ? Aiding the Democracy in lowa,
who stand pledged to support the
Cleveland policy, you give the direct
lie to all your preaching, and every
Greenback vote for fusion is a vote
which declares that for years the
Greeubackers of lowa have been play
ing a very naughty game of duplicity.
Gentle brother, take these figures home,
look at them closely, and then look in
to the glass and see how wretchedly
shame-faced you will look—if you will
let your honest feelings caper!
Pay off the bonds ! Send out those
bond calls !
Extracts from his Speech on
Tuesday Afternoon.
He opened his speech by saying that
he had come to discuss the National
issues of the present campaign. All the
platforms of the three parties in lowa
dwell largely upon National topics, aud
his purpose was to talk these matters
over from the standpoint of a Republi
can. Since the organization of that
party he had been training uuder its
banner, and for a quarter of a century
he has come by constant labor and care
ful study to love the party and believe
in its principles. The elections this
fall are full of National interest on ac
count of their hearing upon the opinion
of the people as to this new-fangled
“Reform Party” now in control of our
government. “And,” said he, “before 1
close I will agree to satisfy every one
who will listen to me that I am sincere
in my determination to still stand by
the party that has always stood by the
country, aud that there is nothing of
promise that should lead auy decent,
loyal man to seek refuge in the Demo
cratic camp. Since I was iu your State
two years ago, death has claimed one of
our greatest Republican leaders. Gen
eral Grant has been called to his long
restiug place.
For fifteen or twenty years the Dem
ocratic party and its periodicals have
heaped upon the heads of Lincoln and
Grant nothing but tbe vilest abuse, and
to us older men who remember the bit
terness and malice of their former
statements, these words of praise that
you now meet with in all their publi
cations seem strange aud impossible.
If the Republican party had done
nothing but give to the country these
two immortal heroes, it would not have
lived in vain. All Democrats admit
this now. It takes tbe Democrats, any
way, to abuse a man, to fight a measure,
tooth and toe-nail, until finally when
the Republicans have lifted up the
hands of that man until his merits are
appreciated, and have adopted the
measure and it has proved a blessing
to the country, then they will make the
most remarkable Hop on record, and
each and every one of them will swear
that he always loved the man and be
lieved in the measure. For a man that
believes in things “afterwards” give me
a Simon-pure Democrat. Why, even
their candidate for Governor in this
State believes in the war to preserve
the Union, now, so I am told. Why
not ? It has been twenty years since it
closed, and in twenty years almost any
such man can get the virus of Copper
headtsm out of him, and claim that his
love for the Union is very intense. The
trouble with such cases is this: Scat
tered all over this country are men with
uncomfortably long memories, and they
will go hack for twenty-five years, and
the first thing these men do is to “open
the bed,” such as man made for himself
during those terrible times, and then
the people turn in and see that he
“sleeps therein.”
But after running this government
for twenty-four years they tell us the
Republicans “have stepped down and
out,” aud that now we are living under
the blessings of a new deal. The inci
dents of the last campaign are still
fresh in my mind. Let us examine for
a few moments what they then claimed
and see how much of performance they
have shown.
democrats and the treasury
They then seemed very anxious to
open the books, examine the accounts
aud count the money. That is one of
the things they seem anxious to do here
in your State now. Well, they have
done that work in Washington. ‘They
promised to show up a terrible state of
affairs. To expose stealing, corruption
and fraud, were the promises, what
did they find after months of earnest
toil 1 1 Among the hundreds of millions
of dollars that we turned over to them
they never claimed a shortage of only
two cents, and that was found on the
fioor after the work was completed.
They promised also to unlock the doors
of tm treasury and spread broad-cast
among the people the $450,000,000 that
they said we Republicans had wicked
ly boarded up for years. Hendricks
made this claim iu every speech be de
livered during the campaign. Smaller
demagogues took up the cry and re
peated It all over this Nation. How
have they panned out up to date?
They have been in power six months
and have never called in a single dollar
of oar bonds, and instead of paying out
the money they have piled it up, and
there is to-day $40,000,000 more hoarded
up in the treasury vaults than there
was when those wiseacres took
possession of the Government.
I can prove this in a measure by con
sulting tne tail end of the Fusion party
io this State. You have had here in
lowa, aa I understand it, three parties
—the Republican, the Democratic, and
the Greenback parties. The latter
claimed to have come into existence be
cause both the old parties were too cor
rupt for men to belong to who excelled
in purity of the life and financial wis
dom ! That was your claim, was it not,
my Greenback friends V Now this poor
young party has amalgamated for the
for the time being with what you called
the impure Democratic party. You
have been preaching and teaching for
years all over this State that no decent
man can stay in the Democratic party,
have you not Y And now you are try
ing to lead all these new, pure and ex
alted Green backers to fuse, co&lece, co
habit, with these same Democrats; a
thing which you say no decent man
can do, eh! Mind you. that is what you
say, not what I say. Now, in order to
save oonfusiou we will call the Dem
ocrats the head of this new animal and
the Green backers the tail thereof, and
that I may make no individious dis
tinctions let us admit at the start there
is full us n> my brains in one end of the
animal as Ui*re is iu the other.
I was saying the tail of this new
party in its platform distinctly charges
that the bead of the a “ rr>ai animal is
working ruin to the country by hoard
ing the monev in the treasury, and now
you are begging the rank aud file Ut
rally and sustain this very party which
your platform says is bringing rum to
our industries and to our laboring men.
That Is a step that no honest Groen
backer can take. Let me repeat it right
here. No Greenbacker who honestly
believes in his own platform here in
lowa can honestly vote with the Dem
ocratic party of this State.
Again, they promised to purify the
civil service. Have they done it? Let
us see. All over the country they have
turned out Union soldiers to make room
for those who wore the gray. For
every man who fought for his country
that they have given an office they have
appointed scores aud scores who fought
against it. In the entire South they
have as yet given places to very few
men if any who were loyal to the Union,
but they have appointed thousands
who tried to break it up. But some one
says there comes the “bloody shirt”
again. Perhaps so, who made the shirt
bloody? How came there so many
such garments all over this fair land ?
But some one asks, “Is it not time to
forgive and forget?” I answer to for
give in most cases, yes, to forget, no!
never! To forgive may be God like,
but to forget is not divine. Forgetful
ness is not even a human quality much
to be praised. As for me 1 shall dis
cuss all these questions in view of well
known facts, and the howl of “bloody
shirt" or any other Democratic yell
will never deter me from doing my
whole duty as I understand it.
The Republican platform here in this
State makes one charge that I desire to
call special attention to. In substance
it protests against one Confederate
soldier having things so managed at the
South that his vote shall count twice
as much as does the vote of a man who
wore the blue. Is it a fact that they
so manage in the South that they elect
their members of Congress by one-half
the vote cast here at the North? Since
reading your platform I have been look
ing up that question somewhat, and 1
am astonished at the accuracy of its
statement. Take the members of Con
gress who sat in the last Congress. 1
have with me the Directory of the 48th
Congress which will bear me out in
every statement that I shall make.
Here in lowa you elected to that Con
gress eleven members. In electing
these eleven men you cast 304,520 votes.
That is it took an average of 27,684
to elect a Congressman in this State.
I have here a list of names of one man
elected in Alabama, one in Arkansas,
four in Georgia, one in Louisiana, two
in Mississippi, one in North Carolina,
and one in Kentucky—eleven in all,
and the votes cast in those eleven dis
tricts for all the candidates were 64,-
306, or for each Congressman 5,854 votes,
whereas it took 27,684 to elect a Con
gressman in lowa, i remember that
before the war they claimed that one
Southerner could whip “three mudsills”
from the North. It took four year of
blood to disabuse their minds of that
idea ? And now at the ballot box they
have so managed that one of these
Southern rebels seems to get away
with 5 % voters here in lowa. But you
say those eleven cases are selected from
the smallest ones. So they are. Let
us try some whole States and see how
we come out.
Georgia elected nine Congressmen.
Her total vote was 106,431. To elect
the same number in this State took 24U,-
158 votes. In other words, in Georgia
there were 12,000 votes to each Con
gressman; in Alabama 14,000; in
Louisiana 13,227; Mississippi 11,300; in
lowa, let me repeat it, 27,684. Just
think of it, the vote cast which gave
Pusey and Smith of this State their
seats in the last Congress only lacked
470 of being as many as were cast in
the entire eleven districts referred to a
moment ago, aud when you count by
entire States you have seen that one
half of the votes in the South elect the
same number of Congressmen that the
entire votes elect here in lowa. Is
there any wonder that we ask why is
this so? It took here in the Clinton
district 28,882 votes to decide who
should he Congressman in the last Con
gress. Will some Democrat tell me
why Blount of Georgia represented a
district that cast only 3,540; that Crisp
of the same State had only 4,131 con
stituents who went to the polls, and
Reese only 4,560, and Blanchard, of
Louisiana, only 5,776, and Reid, of
North Carolina, only 5,063? Come, now,
will some one explain this ? You must
remember that the United States census
had just beeu taken and all these dis
tricts contained just about the same
number of people as did your districts
here iu lowa. Why then is this so?
There is but one true answer to this
question. The Southern rebels, beaten
on the field are now controlling this
nation by fraud and intimidation at the
polls. Aud let me say here and now,
my Democratic friends, the Republican
party will never die or lay down its
fighting armor until this shameful out
rage on the American people and
against the freedom and purity of the
ballot is righted. If that he waviug
the “bloody shirt,” make the most of it.
I like the Republican party for what
it has done in the past. It has a record,
and one that we are proud of. It is and
has been a party of well defined prin
ciples. The Democratic party is always
afraid of the past. They complain if
we mention their history. They are
always complaining that we are dis
turbing the slumbering ashes of dis
sension, and in their agony they ask
“what do you go way hack there for?”
It occurs to me their objection cannot
he because we go back so far, because
they themselves are eternally talking
about Jacksonian and Jeffersonian
Democracy. Rob them of that cry aud
where would your average Democrat
bring up? No, no, it is not because we
go hack that they complain, but what
disturbs them is the thing we go back
to. There are ten years of their party
life that they would give all they
possess if it could be forgotten, blotted
from the memory of men. The Amer
ican people refuse to forget it. It in
cludes a period hallowed by the death
of 300,000 heroes. Its memory is en
shrined in the hearts of forty millions
of people. They have cherished it in
the past. They will refuse to forget it
in the future. * * *
1 dislike to join the Democratic par
ty because it is the party of dead issues.
Look the list over with me for a few
moments. Slavery was once very dear
to the Democratic heart, but tb'.nk God
slavery is dead. States Rights was the
old war cry in time gone T>y, but the
doctrine of States Rights is dead and
buried under the tramp of two million
boys in blue. Inflation was a Demo
cratic doctrine; it too is dead. The
right of secession was at one time
claimed by a large majority of the
Democratic party; that is also dead:
not only dead but decomposed. Null
ification is also dead. Free Trade is
still living, but it ought to be dead.
Repudiation was a Democratic doc
trine; it is dead. The cry that the
“war is a failure,” was once made part
of their platform, but not now, that
cry is long since dead. “Opposition to
specie payment” was once Democratic
thunder, but that is dead and buried
under vaults filled with shining coin.
The Knights of the Golden Circle were
Democratic institutions. They have
gassed away, they are dead. The
outhern Confederacy was manned
and officered by Democrats, but it is
dead; dead as Julius Caesar. Hatred of
Union Soldiers, calling them “hire
lings” and “Lincoln’s dogs” was a Dem
ocratic custom, but that has played
out of late; it is dead. Fiat money—
that darling infant of the Greenback
party, it, too, bad to die. The Demo
cratic doctrine that because a man is
black, be has no rights which a white
man is bound to respect, has also gone
the way of all the earth—it is dead.
Aud finally the constant vinification
and abuse of Lincoln and Grant has
ceased to be heard—it lies buried with
those dead issues of the past.
1 have already said that I like to be
long to the Republican party because
it is a party of ideas, of live issues.
The Greenbacks were created by the
Republican party, in the face of bitter
Democratic opposition, and the Green
backs still live and are good as gold
elsewhere on the face of God’s green
earth. Resumption was a Republican
measure and it still lives. There are
to-day ten Territories of the Union and
every inch of them all is dedicated to
freedom. The Republican party so
willed it, and that still lives and rules.
The free schools of the South were or
ganized by Republicans, opposed by
Democrats, but they still live and 2,-
000,000 colored children are daily learn
ing to read and write. The great man
ufacturing industries of the United
States, built and strengthened by the
Republican party, stilliive to furnish
well paid labor to several million
working men. Our National Banks,
composing tbe safest and best banking
system in tbe world, still live. A per
fect mail service, extended and im
proved by Republican good sense and
good mauagment still lives. Six mil
lion black men and women in bondage
by Democratic laws and Democratic
policy are to-day alive aud free, not a
man legally held in bondage, except
b*r crime, in all this broad land. We
have also nearly one million victorious
Union soldiers still alive, made victori
ous by their owe pluck aud endurance,
coupled by the supplies and prayers
furnished bv the Republicans of this
country, and better still, our Nation
still lives; our Nation spelt with a big
N. aud it lives Itecause of the efforts
of thp Republican party, which through
all those terrible days stood by and
sustained our army and navy in their
fearful struggle to save the life of our
glorious Republic. Aye, and thanks
to the Republican p rty the Ameiican
ILig, still lives, “not a single star
erased, nor a stripe polluted,” and now
fioats over a united and prosperous
people. Yes. my fusion friends, let me
invite you to cotue out from among
the dead issues of the past and join
hands with the living present.
But some one says, are there no live
issues or ideas which can claim
to be fostered and sustained by the
Democratic party. Oh! yes, a tew.
Here is the list.
A solid South,
Promotion of rebels,
Fraud at the polls,
Hunger for office,
Free whisky.
The list is small but active. It is
for you, my fellow citizens, to sav with
which of these parties you will act.
In my judgment it will be a long time
before the people of lowa will cast
their lot among the catacombs. They
prefer open air and the sunlight of the
noon-day. To get that you will have
to remain with the party of vour youth,
and fight as yon fought in 18*51.
Brooklyn, N. Y., has a real romance
in the marriage of a widow of 82 to a
double widower of 72 summers.

ANDERSON— Wm. Andkrson was boru in
Washington couuty, Pa., and removed with his
parents to Harrison county, Ohio, and from
there to Mahaska couuty, lowa. He left friends
but had no relatives in this State that he knew
of. He was united in marriage with Nancy
Picken, July 7, 1855. He engaged in teaching
school and will be remembered by bis discipline
and his teaching. To them were born four
daughters and one son, all of whom survive him.
He lived a consistent Christian forts years, a
member of the United Presbyterian church. As
a man, he is a loss to the community, as well as
to the family. His religion was a life of faith
and prayer, and the Bible was a revelation from
God. He believed without a doubt, and never
was contented with any low, mean act, thought
or impulse. His minister, his choice as a special
friend for 30 years. Rev. Ely, of Ottumwa, deliv
ered a very Instructive sermon and in sympathy
tendered his love for the bereaved. As a testi
monial of Ills worth and as an expression of the
heart of the community, a very large number
attended the funeral, Truly tne family has beei
greatly afflicted, but to them comes the blessed
thought that he has gone to Join the happy baud
on the other bright shore. m. a. s.

Capt. Brower, an ex-editor, but now
a large farmer in Cerro Gordo county,
recently delivered an able and edifying
speech before the Hancock County
Agricultural society. In closing he
paid the following just tribute to the
farmer’s wife; “No class of men are
more indebted to their wives for the
success that comes to them, than are
farmers. The wife and mother who
has the courage to go out with the
husband of her choice and commence
the struggle of life with him on the
wild prairie, or on a new farm with hut
little capital, except that boundless
capital of head and heart, is worthy to
stand by the side of the Spartan woman
of whom poets have exhausted their
words of praise. Upon her falls the
brunt of the strife, no matter how hard
the husband may toil. His work closes
with the day, hut hers is continued long
after, and what with children, and the
small chores that many of the beginners
look after, her lot is not one to he
1 envied. And when after years of
i struggle, success, with reluctant feet
comes to crown the husband with
honor, the brighest wealth should adorn
the brow of the noble wife, who was
' the stay and anchor, the comfort and
the source of all hope in the stormy
' days of trial. That wreath should
’ crown her queen. We hear much of
i the men. We hear that so and so is
! making money and he gets the credit
of being a fore-handed man, hut it is
: quite as often that the noble little
| woman, who has toiled and com
plained not, who has pinched, aud saved,
and murmured not, is the one to whom
the State and Nation is most greatly
indebted. These are the women who
i lead men up to that higher aud nobler
| manhood, to that shrine where, like
knights of old, they bend the knee of
homage, not to beauty, but to worth
and royal womanhood. These are the
women who are queens in the home and
' who find the brighest honor aud will
know the greatest glory in heaven iu
making the refuge of her children, and
from which they shall go out good men
and good women. There, God decreed,
was her greatest glory, and there is the
nation’s strength and hope, and there
is the shrine where Worth and Honor
shall come and pay their homage.”
