without a scratch on a single one.
—lt is probable that the hide went
with the head on the state ticket. But
the returns were so poorly made that
the official count will have it to settle.

—The case is closed for the present.
The people were wearing the purple.
But tbe right of appeal was not cut
off in the sentence, and the people will
yet change the verdict of Tuesday.
—The Republicans made a gallant
fight for tbe lower house of tbe legis
lature, and redeemed themselves in the
tbe following counties: Adair, Adams,
Audubon, Boone, Decatur.Floyd,Powe
shiek and Kossuth.
—The southern alliance succeeded in
carrying one county, Monona for West
fall, for governor. The total vote of
the party will reach from 12,000 to 15,
000. The southern alliance elected a
representative in Montgomery county
and a senator in the Mills-Montgomery
—Keokuk Gate City: ‘“Now the pro
hibitory law will be repealed,’ said a
democratic Keokuk brewer Wednes
day. “Not much,” answered a jubil
ant democratic politician who stood by.
The democrats will not monkey with
the buzz saw. They.want prohibition
to use some more. They will submit
it to another special election*” And
there you are.”
—The republicans have no regret for
the position they held during the cam
paign. They were right, and if the
light were to make now they would oc
cupy the same ground. And if Gov.
Boies had been re-elected by one hun
dred thousand majority, it would not
have made the things he has done and
said as governor right, and for which
the republican party arraigned him.
—lowa’s vote in 1889 on governor
was as follows:
Boies (Dem.) 180,111
Hutchison (Rep.) 173,588
Downing (Union Labor.) 5,579
Smith (Pro.) 1,353
Mr. Boies had a plurality over
Hutchinson (rep) of 6.623, but he did
not have a majority over all. The ma
jority against him was 409. The rest
of the Republican state ticket was

Boies into bis success will please take
notice that he doesn’t mince matters
in claiming it as an unqualified demo
cratic victory. He said in his jubila
tion speech at Des Moines: “I may well
rejoice and you may well rejoice in the
great victory which the great demo
cratic party has won. It only remains
necessary for you to use that victory
fairly and honorably to make the great
state of lowa henceforth a democratic
—Secretary Rusk has taken care of
the American hog, and he is now going
to look after American corn. The prej
udice that exists in Europe against
the use of corn as food is to be over
come. The agents of the agricultural
department have been actively engag
ed m the work of educating the people
of Eirope to the virtues of corn, and
they are able to report progress. In
Berlin most noteworthy progress has
been made. Congress can afford to
spend a little money to help along the
cause of corn.
—On joint ballot the next General
Assembly will have seven Republican
majority, which will prevent “the party
of repeal,” as the Leader defines its
party, from plowing the swath pro
jected. The Senate is Democratic by

The News says: “The Republicans of
Keokuk county made a good fight this
year. We reduced the majority of 436
for Boies two years ago to 272 this year,
making a loss to Boies of 164. We also
reduced the majorities on oounty ticket
150 or 200. Had other counties in tbe

Boies would have been snowed under

—The opinion of Sam Clark, of the
Gate City, is always in order on any
topic, and on the election result he says:
“Many will say it was prohibition kill
ed lowa Republicanism. Well, lowa
Republicanism is not dead. And be
fore prohibition came up as an issue
tbe Republican party was tied in the
lowa legislature by the anti-monopoly
issue, and later lost our majority in
the state on the greenback issue, and
in 1877 by not taking up prohibition.
It is as broad as it is long. There is no
prohibition in New York and the Re
publicans did not win there, nor in
Massachusetts Republicanism yet the
party did not win there. If it is not
one thing that tells against the ma
jority party it is another. The ebb and
flow is ceaseless. The lowa Republi
can party was far stronger by reason
of its position as to prohibition in lowa
in last Tuesday’s election than it would
have been otherwise. That position
brought many Democrats to it and
helped many Republicans to it in town
and country who would have voted
against it otherwise. That is so potent
a fact that it cannot be successfully
The Des Moines Register voices the
sentiment of all Republicans when it
says: “In the contest that has just
closed no class of men stood by the Re
publican party more faithfully than
the colored men. They voted for the
Republican party almost to a man.
They were never better organized and
never more faithful. If victory has not
been with the Republicans, the colored
men can feel that the fault is not theirs.
They did their share of the fighting,
whoever may have failed. Many of
them were opposed to prohibition,in as
far as the Republican platform en
dorsed the present law, but they swal
lowed prohibition and remained faith
ful to the party with which is associ
ated what is best in their past history.
The Republicans cannot feel otherwise
than proud of the loyal support that
was given them by the colored men.
The bond of sympathy is closer and
stronger on account of this support.
Colored men have stood by tbe Repub
licans and the Republican party will
stand by tht rights of the colored men.”
All over the land there were heavy

In Chicago there was a sweeping re

The reaction from the reverses of 1890
is sweeping onward—and lowa will be
in the Republican column next year.
Republicans, be heartened! The Re
publican party is still the law making
power of lowa. The control of the leg
islature was the chief prize coveted by
the Democracy this year. With the
law-making function in their hands
Gov. Boies would have some chance to
project democratic ideas on the people
of the state. Without it he is a Samp
son shorn, a functionary who may
write vetoes against the laws of the
people, who may sign pardons for con
victed criminals, who by non-enforce*
ment may nullify law, but who, when
all is said, is but a negative, paralyzing
factor, absolutely devoid of any ag
gressive, impressive power to effect
changes in state government or impart
energy to political principles.
The Democratic party of lowa is
credited with the governor of the state.
Bat Gov. Boies is not himself a Demo
crat on the broad, specific principles of
national Democracy,nor was he elected
on the test of a single Democratic issue.
Gov.Boies left the Republican party on
the sole issue of Prohibition, and he
pitched'the Democratic campaign on
that issue alone. In his speeches
all over lowa, covering two hours
of time, over one hour was
devoted to that discussion, and the bal
ance of the time to an .'explanation of
his New York calamity blunder. He
did this here when he spoke in this city,
and he did it everywhere else. It was
the issue of whisky or no whisky that
inspired the battle in lowa this year,
and that won the recruits to the oppo
sition standard. The principles of Re
publicanism as such and Democracy as
such were unfortunately not arrayed
against each other at all. This election
was the only actual political measuring
of the strength of the State as between
prohibition and license, and prohibi
tion was shown not to be in the fight
ing majority as a party sentiment. As
an aotual sentiment, however, we have
no doubt it is tb the majority, apart
from all other issues and parties, but
as a majority to depend on when that
issue alone is made the test it has been
demonstrated this election that it
will fail. This. he victory the Dem
cratic party has gained in this election,
and it is its only victory. Not a single
Democratic principle as sueh, unless
the Democracy of the present day has
sacrificed all political principles for t K e
saloon, has been advanced during | s
canvass, not one.
The Republican party of lowa, tlw -
fore, is left to begin the contest ofj 1
just where this campaign found iflp s
strong in the courage of its null, s
honest and faithful in its principle! i*
true and guarded in its befriendin';. *f
American industry, honest money! i
creaseU 6 trade relations, and all ffcat
stands for good government and
vidual and national prosperity as
and with no triumph of the opposition
that will afleot national Issues or have
any force or bearing on a national elec
tion. Republicans are in magnificent
fighting trim for work.
Yes, men and women of lowa, Re
publicanism has suffered no defeat.
Buckie your armor tighter as national
Republicans, and the day and issue will
be ours.
Stats University Note*.
Here, as eli where, politics has for
weeks been th~ theme of discussion.
In passing groups of young men any
where over the campus.—“ Prohibition,”
“Corn,” “Free-trade,” “Tariff,” were the
catchwords that fell upon the ear. A
little sport was had out of the political
badges. The 8. U. I. color is old gold.
The Democratic students procured
their old gold ribbon, cut it in lengths
and had them printed—“S. U. I. Boys
vote for Boies.” The Republicans
scented fun and had their badges print
ed, “S. U. 1. men vote for Wheeler.”
Many from all departments,and of both
parties went home to vote, and it now
seems, as in many instances in life, the
“boys” have beaten the “men.”
October 31, the Minnesota University
foot-ball team played the S. U. I. team,
tbe result being Minnesota 42, lowa 4.
However the best good nature pre
vailed. In tbe evening the S. U. l.team
banqueted the victors, and wit and
wisdom in the form of toasts, proved
that physical training was not at the
expense of the mental.
The faculty here are in full sympathy
with all athletic sports, in so far as they
do not interfere with the student’s
school work. No time is allowed for
either practice or games except Satur

Louis L. Foote, D.D.5..8.U.1. ’9l, is
visiting the Dental school. He is lo
cated at Traer, lowa, and hus already a
good practice. He brought to the den
tal clinics today a case of cleft palate.
Dr. Hunt, dean of the department,
makes a specialty of such peculiar and
difficult cases. Indeed the success of
the department is largely the result of
Dr. Hunt’s high standing in the profes
sion. He combines the high quali
ties of a One workman, a good teacher
and a genial, kind hearted man that
wins the respect and love of the young
people of his school.
Tne Homeopathic Medical Depart
ment has an attendance 25 per cent
larger than ever before. There are 55
students, and the faculty state that
they are an exceptionally bright class.
The work in the surgical, eye and
ear, and medical clinics is fully up to
previous years. The hospital is pay
ing its way. It is always fairly full,
and it is hoped before long more room
and better accommodations will be had.
The faculty are all men eminent in
their school, and specialties. Dr. Oow
perthwaithe, dean of the department
and professor of Materia Medica, is the
author of a work on that subject,which
has reached its seventh edition. It is
a standard text-book, and is used in
Homeopathic medical schools all over
the world. Even in far away India
there is a school under English man
agement using this book, from the pen
of a aL U, 1. Professor.
Dr. Dickinson of the chair of Theory
and Practice, has been concected with
the school ever since its establishment.
He was one of the prime movers in its
organization, and it was largely
through him that the hospital was
made a reality.
The first edition of his valuable worn,
on Theoy and Practice of Medicine is
almost exhausted. A new edition will
soon appear, replete with all new ideas,
showing fully the progress in Medical
Science in his school during the past
few years.
Dr. Gilchrist of the chair of Surgery
is at present writing a series of articles
on the Elements of Surgical Pathology,
published in the Northwestern Journal
of Homeopathy. These when complet
ed are to be printed in book form. Dr.
Gilchrist has a large surgical practice
over the state,and is eminently success
Dr. Cogswell is doing good work in
his chair of Obstetrics.
Dr. F. J. Newberry, lecturer on
Opathalmology and Otology is a clear
talker and his eye and ear clinics are
of great value to the students. Dr.
Newberry stands high in his specialty
both in and out of his own school. He
has an immense practice here. Under
such mangement and instruction, the
future of the Homeopathic Medical De
partment is an assured success.

and Neil & Shayler were burglarized
and the safe of McClain & Co. blown
open. From appearanoes the thieves
had gone into Neil A Shayler’s store
first. To this they effected an entrance
by breaking a glass from a window in
the rear end of the store and raising
the sash. They took about a dozen
large cans of oysters, several oans of
salmon and peaches, about fiYe’or six
hundred cigars, and $3,51 In cash.
Leaving here they went to McClain A
Ca’a hardware store and entered the
front doors by prying them apart.
With the aid of adrill, they bored into
the safe door, put in some powder and
blew the safe open. Seizing upon the
money drawer, they did not wait to
open it, bat took it, two revolvers, and
probably a knife or two and left. Down
near the Central depot they opened the
money drawer, searched its contents,
and foond nothing of any value to
them. A stranger, suspected of the
robbery, was arrested in this city

—“There are three men of property
and prominence in this section who are
likely to drop off into death at any boor, 1 *
said a physician to The Rambler. “They
have ran their machines at a killing
pace that brought on heart troubles.
They will be at the head of a procee
sion, leave their gatherings to others,
and have bad but little enjoyment of
life.” The doctor seemed to think that
there was no help for it These work*
era had got into the harness, and had
simply worked to the end that now
awaits them. Who they are was a pro
fessional matter—bat it was true, and
pity it was that it was tiue. In the
chase after the accumulation of wealth
there should be taken sufficient time
for the comfortable pleasures of lift
and of home, and for an acquaintance
with the better and ennobling things
of lire, so that wheD the summons does
come it will find a credit in the line of
enjoyment, and not leave all husks.
Many a one is just going to do thus and
so —bat he never does it, for the human
machine slips a cog and there is wailing,
and sobbing, and the echo of clods on
the coffin case. Enjoy life rationally
while you may.
—The Rambler believes that a philos
opher is in the office of the Ottumwa
Sun. It must be Oapt. Evans,for from
his mount he says: “Now that the elec
tion is over and the die cast, let no one
believe for a moment that a dread ca
tastrophe is impending. Things will
go on just about the same; there is to
be no radical change of government;
certain candidates have been success
ful and will draw the emoluments of
office, but the people who did the vot
ing must again take up the burden of
life and carry it along as usual. Labor
is to be performed; the brightest vic
tories do not buy bread tor the masses,
but each one must toil as heretofore.
The poor miserable slave who sold his
vote has already parted with the price
of his manhood; it was but a pittance
at best aud if it had been ten times as
great it will weigh him down as did
the reward of J udas.”
—The Rambler notes that the ten
dency of our population growth is
largely to the cities. The census shows
a growth that way that is astonishing.
What causes it? Well, younger men
and women seek the towns for labor —
then added to their ranks are a very
large number of people who seek the
towns to spend their declining days in
an anticipated pleasure that does not al
ways come. The independence of farm
life is given up for the narrow,confined
life of town. The substantial pleasures
of a life close to nature are given up
for much that is artificial and unreal.
This tendency is one that may be ex
plained on the ground that men and
women too often are cut away from the
ordinary social pleasures of life, on the
farm,acd that the town or city is sought
to make up for that Another and a
greater real cause is found in the school
advantages found n town as against
the country—for it should be remem
bered that this class comes to town in
comfortable circumstances, and not for
the purpose of profitable labor. The
towns can never be recruited from a
better or safer section than the country,
and the latter only is the loser.
—The efforts now being made to in
troduce corn as an article of food in
Europe, by the agents of the agricul
tural department, are likely.to prove
very successful. When its good points
are thoroughly learned and appreciated
abroad the demand for it must im
mensely and permanently increase.
Among the poorer classes of continental
Europe, who rely on rye chiefly, corn
must prove highly acceptable when
once its virtues are made known. It
will be a good substitute for rye when
that product, as at present, becomes
scarce and dear, and when a fair chance
is offered for it to reveal itself,
it will probably to a large de
gree displace rye among those to
whom cheapness in t ~ selection of
food is the prime consideration.
The benefit which would come to the
country from the opening of new mar
kets for corn are obvious enough to be
understood by all intelligent persons.
It is, in a monetary sense, the most im
portant of the products of the soil of
the United States. Its value largely
exceeds that of wheat, hay or cotton,
which aie, aside from corn, our leading
agricultural crops. Until recently the
sale of corn was virtually restricted to
this country. Only an Insignificant
portion of the annual yield has been
SUB# aoroad. Even in 1889, when the
yield here was larger than it ever was
before or since, and when exportation
reached the highest figure in the aggre
gate it ever touched, the proportion of
the exports amounted to .only 490 per
cent of the year’s crop, while our for
eign sales of wheat were over 22 per
cent In the same year. These facts
will show the advantages to the coun
try which the introduction of corn into
Europe on a scale commensurate with
our facilities for producing it would
—The Rambler is of the opinion that
the result of the election is substanti
ally this: The majority of the people
have said we want the saloon to come
back. Present the question plainly
that way and many who voted so
would say no. Bnt that is ths inexor
able logic of the ballot. The drunkard
factory has been endorsed by the ma
jority of the people. Of course, nobody
is in favor of making drunkards—not
even “Stormy Jordan," but the “called
back” saloon does the business just the
same. It keeps up the recruiting for
crime and *' the prisons, but no man
would v for that direct. Women
will cheer and shout and sing for Boies
and bis victory—won for the saloon—
but they don’t want their daughters to
marry drundards, or their sons to be
oome snob. In this way every mother’s
son is against the saloon, bnt in the
other way Christian men and women
will be found glorifying the result that
can only open the way to the miseries
that have eeme from the drink evil.
