* —The Tims* takes up the chargee that
have been made against the Demo
cratic Btate Committee, and seems to
side in with the fellows who intimate
that the hoodie was stolen. It asserts
that It is to be greatly regretted that
this matter, whether based on misappre
hension or otherwise, could not have
been explained satisfactorily and thus
received its quietus, instead of being
permitted to take on the character of
scaudai within the party to the morti
fication of all who have its best inter
est at heart. But since the problem is
public property, there can be no addi
tional harm in observing that ever
since the election, if not before, promi
nent Democrats all over the State have
expressed surprise and chagrin that so
little was accomplished by the Commit
tee, considering the means which bad
been placed at their dispose.** It claims
that must of the speakers paid their
own expenses, and got no aid from the
Democratic Committee, and suggests
that “in order to quiet apprehension, a
statement should be made by the Com
mittee, and an investigation by repre
sestative Democrats invited. Only by
such s step can its members hope to
quiet a growing conviction that a great
wrong has been dime arm party, and
that possibly defeat cams from disloy
alty to trusts con tided, rather than from
the superior tactias of the enemy." Let
the Democrat* in the legislature inves
tigate! They will strike some very
rich leads in one hour’s digging. Inves
tigate!—“in the interests of the people"

December 17, 1885.
—Ex-Gov. B. Gralz Brown, of Mis
souri, died suddenly last Sunday, aged
58 years.
—The bulk of the immense fortune
of William H. Vanderbilt is left to his
two sons, Cornelius and William K.
In addition to this, the will bequeaths
*10,000,000 to each of his eight children,
and nearly 91,000,000 to charitable in
stitutions. •
—Our outside pages are taken up
with the President’s message. It is ex
tremely long, but the people should
know what Grover has been thinking
about, and we prefer to present his
message complete, so that in the dis
cussion that will follow all may know
from the full text what is being ob
jected to.
—President Cleveland is very strong
against the silver dollar; Secretary
Manning is against the silver dollar
aud the greenback, and wants them
both returned; Treasurer Jordan is
against the M cart wheel” dollar, the
greenback and the gold and silver cer
titlcates, and favors gold coin alone as
the standard currency of the realm.
To this sort of a mess the people of the
west are invited, u in the interest of the
people aud of reform.”
—According to the census of 1880,
there was one insane person to every
36G of lowa's population. As the poj>-
ulation of the State was 1,634;0U), the
number of insane in the State must
have been over 4,000. Less than a third
of these are confined in two State In
sane Asylums, at Mt. Pleasant and In
dependence. The other two-thirds are
distributed in the county jails, alms
houses and iu private families, and the
total cost of their maintenance is not
lees than 51,000,000.
—The following shows the table of
population of the Sixth Congressional
District, with a comparison with the
census of 1880. It will be seen that
Davis is the ouly county which loses—
all the others gaining from 08 in Mon
roe to 3,051 in Keokuk. The net gain
in the district is 13,075 over the census
of 1880.

—Mr. L. M. Wolcott, of (lurtleld
township, an ardent Republican, and
well acquainted with Virginia matters,
wrote a kindly letter to Hon. John S.
Wise, the lute Republican candidate
for Governor of Virginia, and received
the following response:
“Richmond, Va., Nov. 38, 18*6.— Mr. L. M
Woteott, UekaUema, lowa.—ltcor Sir: Accept
my thauks lor your kind letter of the 4th lust.

—The Democratic editors of this Dis
trict are “getting there,” under the lead
of Weaver. Last week, Fortune of the
Bloom Held Republican was bounced as
an “offensive partisan," and Harry
Evans of the Demoirrat, appointed,—
a partisan of the bitterest kiud, but
Democratic. Monday Webber, the
copper colored partisan of the Albia
Democrat, was appointed, in place of
Capt. Early, whose time expired yester
day. Mr. Weaver is reported to have
recommended Wm. T. Smith for the
Oskaloosa post office, now vacant by
reason of expiration of Mr. Leighton’s
term, yesterday. This would seem to
break that continunity of press pro
motion that was promised by Weaver,
over his own hand.
Parnell rides at the mast, at last, in
the British House of Commons. The
Liberals have a majority, but one too
small to enable them to adopt a vigor
ous policy. With the Irish party help
ing they can carry forward whatever
reforms they wish, but the question of
what the I'arnellites will demand for
such help is the factor that will settle
the matter. Moderate aud safe legis
lation will be pledged, but nothing rev
olutionary. The Salisbury Cabinet
have unanimously decided to refuse to
receive or to make overtures for an
alliance with the I'arneliites. They
will meet Parliament with a program
of English Church Reform and Land
Tenure bills. Mr. Gladstone is ex
pected to move a vote of want of con
fidence in the Tory Government the
first day of the session of Parliament.
—The United States Treasury is dis
covering what Democratic control
means. The revenues have fallen off
which is partly accounted
for by a reduction of taxes, but the ex
penditures have been increased over
•IOjUUU/Xjo, and none of the refonners
offer a word of explanation. It is so
because it is. and that is about all you
can hear. The deficit for 1886-7 is esti
mated at •25,<nu,U00, and if the appro
priations are continued on the same
basis as last year, it will be over #BO,-
Otxyjun. Still, the cranks of the free
trade section are clamoring for a very
heavy reduction of the duties. With a
threat of this kind overhanging the
American manufacturer, and Dan
Manning proposing to obliterate the
greenback currency entirely, it seems
to us that a very unpromising time is
just ahead of us.

The Meeting of the lowa State
Butter and Cheese Association
—Representative Attendance.
The lowa Association of the Butter,
Cheese and Egg men met at the Opera
House, in this city, at 2 p. m. on Tues
day. The convention was called to
order by the efficient Secretary, Col. R.
M. Littler, of Davenport. lu the
temporary absence of the President
Mr. Sherman, of Monticello, and the
Vice President, Mr. B. S. Schemer horn,
of Pella, was called to the chair, by the
Convention.
Sundry matters were reported by the
committee on Legislation, though Mr.
Beard, reporting a bill to be presented
to the Legislature touching the great
fraud on honest butter. Its provisions
are very strigent, and if passed would,
if enforced, wipe the frauds out.
A call of the convention showed that
about sixty persons were present,
among whom were many of the lead
ing dairy men in the State, and several
from Illinois. The afternoon was
taken up in a general discussion on the
great topic—how to reach the butter
frauds. Col. Littler reported that he
had addressed a circular to the members
of the present Congress, asking their
view on the question. Five out of
seveu answered that they thought that
national legislation could be had, but
the Colonel counseled stroug effort to
secure all legislation possible from the
State.
There was a general discussion on
the measure proposed to be presented
to the lowa Legislature, in which the
legal condition of the laws of the States
which have legislated upon the subject,
was brought out. Generally the re
port was a favorable one—the one
great draw back being the immense
wealth that is backing the fraud butter
business.
EVENING SESSION.
At the evening session the Opera
House was well filled, and President
Sherman occupied the chair. The K.
I*. band had previously attended and
given their usual excellent musical
efforts, while as a regular opening the
Musical Association of the city, under
the direction of Richard Dumont, rend
ered appropriately and well, “The
Buttermakers,” with no butterine
about it—it was pure goods of best
brand. On the stage were Mayor Rice,
officers and city Council, with the State
officers of the Association. On behalf
of the city Mayor Rice delivered the
following address of welcome:
Mr. President, and Gentlemen of the Commit
tee: Representing the honorable city council
ami our eutlre populace, 1 welcome to the hos
pitalities of our city the cream of our State—the
low a Butter amt Cheese Association. This, I
understand, is the first time you have met south
ol the “Great Rock Island Route”. For ten
years you have met annually for the consider
ation of the many questions of general and vital
importance to the uairymeu of lowa. That your
meeting* have resulted profitably to the Asso
ciation, reflecting the highest honors on our
commonwealth, we have only to look at the
reports of committees where your products have
beeu exhibited all of which is "gill edged”, and
during this time you have witnessed a wonder
ful change and a most remarkable growth In
this branch of Industry, which has become the
pride of our State. Since 1874 the creameries
of lowa have Increased from one to nearly seven
hundred lu number, the products of which
reach the great markets of the world. Many of
you through a term of years, have watched with
pride the growth of our State, and have seeu
the Industry of your cholcegrow Into ponderous
proportions; you have seeu the onward inarch
of civilization and progress transform the beau
tiful prariea into happy and prosperous homes,
lieie and there a school house and church where
but a short time since the woll and coyote roam
ed and were masters of the situation, with no
signs of humau habitation. What a contrast Is
uow presented, the scrubby cow has gone west
and the Short Horn, Jersey, Holstein, and all
the liner grades have come to stay. The prarie
scoouer, our ouly meaus of transportation a
few years ago, has also moved out of the way
and now not a couuty lu the Stale but what is
crossed by ratiroads, screaming for the golden
product* of the land. Who is not proud of be
ing an lowan aud having a home with the loyal.
Industrious, intelligent dairymen of our Stale?
We are led to exclaim, as did a gallant Union
soldier lu the war lor the Union: Mv God first,
my country next, and then my family.” Gen
tlemen we are proud to meet you, and welcome
you to our city, our firesides, our churches, aud
all that we have that Is good, aud that we are
prepared to make It warm for you. I refer to
our output of coal reachtug thousands of tons
annually. Uenllemeu, we again welcome you
to our city, aud 1 trust that your deliberations
and association while with us, may be of the
most pleasaut ami profitable character, and
that mauy Hems of Interest may be here diffused
for the future good of the association and our
State at large. Thanking you for your attention
we again bid you welcome.
Hon. W. T. Smith, on behalf the State
Agricultural Society, responded in a
thoroughly good address, in which the
agricultural matters of the State were
well presented, aud at the close many
facte were forcibly pictured out touch
ing the town and county. Our crowded
oondition compel us to present the
paper later ou.
The response, on behalf the Associa
tion, was made by Henry Wallace of
the loipa Homestead— a speaker of
very much force, and one who well
sketched out the growth of the dairy
industry and the blight that has come
upon it through the frauds of the
butterine factories of Chicago. The
addresses bristled with facts and fig
ures—showing clearly that the only
salvation to the dairy interest was to
be found in such legislation as would
effectually put a stop to the frauds now
penetrated, wherein poor lard was
manipulated in such manner as to cut
out houest butter in the market Mr.
Wallace’s address was given the best
attention, and repeatedly applauded.
Following came the annual address
of President Sherman,—a paper of
much earnestness and force. We shall
present it in full, later on. This closed
the evening’s exercises.
The musical exercises by Hrother
Dumont’s singing people were well
received, and made to respond to con
tinued applause.
“This is an auspicious opening,” was
the remark of Secretary Littler, and so
all thought.

I suppose Judge Johnson will open court to

whose character and reputation Is above re
proach. I hope the day Is not far distant when
the Court House will be completed lu all Its de
partments, with clock, gas aud electric lights,
aud the county records and officers aud farmers’
club have comfortable quarters to do their offi
cial business in, and the fanners'club to ex
pound their theories on bog cholera, blaok leg
and other diseases of animals. 1 supposed, at
their last meeting the club would have come to
some settled conclusion as to the best time to
cut grass for hay, but from reports they failed
to decide, and have continued the subject for
further consideration.
Winter Is here In full blast; plenty of snow
and good sleighing.
Stock lo >ks well and thereto plenty of proven
der. but If this weather continues until the Ist
of April, a large quantity of provender will be
consumed, which will enhance the value of hay,
straw and grain; therefore farmers should feed
plenty but not lie wasteful. I think letting
stock ruu to hay stacks is a very wasteful way
to do, and the farmer loses mauy dollars there
by. Stock to generally very healthy lu this vi
ciulty; no hog cholera that I know of; a few
eases of black-leg among the calves, which
proves fatal In every case in about -to hours
from the time It to discovered. I wish the far
mers’ club or some of the other oattle, butter or
ureairt conventions, would ferret out a prevent
ative for this disease, for there to more loss In
this community from blaok-leg than all other
diseases of cattle, for black-leg always attacks
the best calves In the herd.

Unless there is something Solid to back it. Some Merchants think that making great
noise, advertising largely, and screaming “CHEAP,” “CHEAP,” will make business
go, WHETHER THERE IS ANY TRUTH BEHIND IT OR NOT. Well,
it may be for a week or month. But very soon the truth leaks out,
and those who have been deceived will not return again. Proud
