The National Republican convention of 1890 19 now of the past. Its platform clear and comprehensive, bear tidings to the people of America that protection reciprocity and eound money shall be brought to the fore as the vital leading issues for the coming campaign. Its standards bearers, the Hon. William McKinley, of Ohio, and Hon. Garret A. Hobart, of Xew Jersey, re ceived at the hands of the convention such a unanimous support as to settle beyond doubt their standing in the con fidence of the Republican hosts and wo can but feel the utmost confidence in the wisdom displayed in the action c the delegates in making their choii feeling assured with such a platfoi and able leaders to lead the G. O. P. to a most emphatic triumph of both creed and men at the polls next November. Mr. McKinley's strength is inherent. He has led a pure, honest exemplary life, and for years has rendered con spicuous public service. He is the architect and explanation of his own popularity with the masses. They ad mire him for his courage, integrity and eminent nbility. P.eing more close identified than any other public m n with that period of prosperity the li -v which bears his name brought to the nation, and being the living exponent of the protective idea, the people natur- ally turn to him for leadership at a time when they desire to return to that policy and reinstate that doctrine. For these reasons the mechanisms of the combined opposition could not prevent his nomination. He is the one man anion g his fellows to whom the people fufitructively turn in this time of the general gloom that hangs like a pall over the industrial life of the nation. His nomination is the highest expression of the protection sentiment so strong in the nation today. Conservative and sound on all national questions and the Dractical embodiment of trany, he is stronger than his narty. and may yet secure the vote and support of Mr. Cleveland himself. His nomination is natural and his election is practically- assured. The nominee of the convention for vice-president if far less known to the people than he who heads the ticket Mr. Hobert, o.tXew Jersey, who has been nominated Jfor vice president, has all the qualities of an enlightened states man, and in the eastern section of the union, where he is better known than in the far west, he has elements of great DODularity, and will strengthen the ticket in a high degree and command the respect and confidence of the voters in all the other parties as well as his own. For years he has represented the Republican party of his own state on the nation committee, and through his work dose in that sphere has shown himself the peer in ability, character and fidelity to Republican principles of any other Republican leader in the country. His nominstion its the Republican candidate for the vice presidency ns 8ures Xew Jersey as a Republican state at the election in Xovember and takes it out of the column of doubtful states. The Republican party goes into the canvass with brilliant leaders and with no uncertain sounds for party watch words. It is pledged to the tademptic ot the economic interests ol me pr from the blunders of Democracy which our industries were strict down, and by a declaration in favor sound money in tern's of no equivoca tion, there is no uncertainty of what the parly when returned to power w 'Al uo. . Anarchy and Communism. Never before in the history of Illinois pontics una mere ueen a political con vention as unique as that which con vened in Peoria on Tuesday of this week. The Democratic state convei was held nt that time and named ' state ticket, and renominated John P. AHgeld, the noted Anarchist and Co munist for governor. In bis spee i accepting the nomination he took up a Tillman pitchfork, and tossed Grorer Cleveland nil over the convention hall, and the followers of the red Hag present cheered and howled themselves bourse. It is a pity we have no statute that oould expel from our country such men M John P. Altgeld. Our Platform. The Ke.uhliciin party presents to the peo'ilenf the 1'nited States nn able iloouiiiehi. It id one Unit tdiould re ceive tlio endorsement of every true American citizen,, as it speaks, it) do iiceitain toie:. for all tlmt winch tends tn giw the people prosperity and Imp-ii:.eS-. Chairman Thurston elaqi.enlly ex-ir.-Mreii the sentiment or the platform when he said that the Republican party believes in "protection that protects, and reciprocity that reciprocates, there in ."ecurm"; the best markets to Ameri can proiluts, and opening American factories to the free coinage of Ameri- c.in inut-cle." Kvery plank in tha jil.il form is a thorough American ex predion, and consequently a protective plauk. The farmer is protected in the m.trket for his wool and other products; the manufacturer, as alto the laborer aoaitibt competition with the pauper Ubor of Europe. The old soldier who is enjuymg a pension is protected in his enjoyment of it ;lhe silver owners ure also protected agaiuet a depreciation of their metal by the 10 to 1 fallacy. Every declaration throughout is for protec tion; it was upon this demand by the masses that the work of a misguided, and deluded Democracy four year, ago should be remedied, that McKinley was nominated. It is a plain, straight for .vard declaration of "America for Aniencans.'a ringing and inspiring state ment of Republicanism. The platform m full will be found on our inside pages. 818. The vote of SIS, by which Mr. Teller's proposition in fnyor of free silver, was tabled in the National convention, to 105 in favor of it, shows how decisive is the opinion of the Republican National convention against any kind of strad dling. The large majority in favor of an uut.spokeu declaration on the money question shows the changes that have taken place in the past four years in the matter of courage on the part of the Republican leaders. The masses of the Republican part;, have shown the politicians in the pa four years that they have been thtnkit. , more seriously in regard to this question and have made it known in a way that cannot be mistaken; that they waut no more equivocation regarding it. The response of the convention is a response to the people. It will make little dif ference what Mr. Teller and his fol lowers may do. They showed their utmost strength in the convention, or rather their own weakness, while the convention itself has shown how strong the Republican party may be when it is bouest with itseif and the leaders are honest with the people. The vote of 813 out of a possible 9J3 in favor ot the best money of the world has given the Republican party a etrength with the honest and patriotic masses of the country that it has not had since the trymg days or the civil war. In The Past. The first session of the LIVtli con gress has adjourned. When it met lust December the country was confronted with a deficit in the national revenues that had been going on ever Bince the repeal of the McKinley act in 1S03, and the substitution of the Gorman-Wilson law of the same year. Not only was there a continuing falling off ot the revenues when compared with the ex penditures and with the treasury re ceipts, under the old law, but the gold held in the treasury for the redemption ot the national currency was rapidly withdrawn for exportation to pay for the increasing importation ot foreign manufactures, encouraged by the Demo cratic tariff measure. Obeying the mandate ot the people us recorded by their votes in 1891, the Re I jblican house of representatives early in the session, passed a taritT bill that would have nrrejted that deticiency in the treasury anu a bond bill that would have saved many millions of dollars .n interest to the people did the necessity continue to se.l bonds to replenish the treasury with gold for redemption pur poses. When these two bills went to the senate for their concurrence they met a fate that has not yet been forgotten in the brief period that has elopsed since then. The Republicans throughout the entire session have been in a minority in that body. The Democrats, by any combination they may make, have been able to determine the policy of the senate. Instead of combining with the Republicans to pass those two bills and thus increase the necessary revenues, the Democrats united with the Popu lists, struck out the provisions relating to revenue and the saying ot millions of interest to the people and inserted a provision for the free coinage of silver. a. measure which the overwhelmicg P publican majorities in 1891, when they elected the present house, emphatically condemned by their votes. The hout j has done promptly, with wisdom, what it was possible to do, and its record has been kept clean. The regular annual appropriations. ircluding deficiencies, made ut the In , session of congress, amounted to $.133,- G3G,89G, and included no river and lr bor bill. So, excluding the river u harbor act passed at this session, it i be seen that the regular annual bill us passed by the house appropriated only 37.'yft3.0S'jj or more than 10 millions less than was appropriated by the last Democratic congress, with the approval of a Democratic executive. That when Mr. Harneoc retired from the white house on March 4, 1893, there was a net cash balance in the treasury of 121 millions. On the first ef June this year, but for moneys derived from the. sale of bonds, there existed nn actual deficiency in the treasury of 20 millions. That is a record that so tar as it re lates to this congress is one to be proud of, "iat instead ot being, as charged by some partisan pnpers, an extravagant congress, it has actually failed by 10 millions to appropriate as much money as was appropriated by the last IJemo cratic congress with the approval of a Cjmocrntic executive. Crowther's Kecord. Congress adjourned sine die Thurs day ot last week, and the members are now going home, uur own congress man, George C. Crowther, will meet a v:arru nnd cordial reception from his his friends here for the able manner in which he has dioharged his duties wh:,e at the nation's capital. It is trdt , that in a large measure, this congre has been on the do nothtng order, bu it was necessarily to.

Savannah Republican. Good Enough. Editor, Hoi.t Coustv Sexti.nki., Ore gon, Mo. Regarding an article entitled "Cheap Enough" appearing in a recent issue of a newspaper published iu your city, iu which the honor of our county judges is attack by a distortion of fuels, (either from mistaken conception or purpose,)tnceriiing the award of a con tract for an iron fence nround the court house park. In justice to the judges, myself and tuy business a refutation of these charges is demanded, and in answering this article I will confine myself to facts only which can be substantiated. As to the character of our present judges, the imputation contained in said article against their honor, is an impo sition on the intelligence of our people. Our judges are all men of unquestion able honor and integrity, irreproachably knoivn to their neighbors and fellow- citizens who have grown up with them from boy hood. The writer of the ar ticle evidently received his education among the "city slums" and politicians. 1 nave no desire to precipitate an ex tended controversy ot this matter, but will endeavor to place our people in possession of the facts hereto connected. Prefatorily, the county court did not make a contract for an "inferior fence. and if they get one it will not be their intention nor my desire. This contro versy has all arisen from a "dog in the manger" motive. Four pretended iron fence agents were present at the session of the court when this mutter was con sitiered, and as they happened to be in competent competitors (as their bids showed them to be, their figures being greatly in excess of mine) they set up a great "dog in the manger" howl of swindled and inferior size and materials and uo end of imaginary schemes perpe trated. lo all that may have been in fluenced by these howlings. I will say now, and prove to you later, that your injuries are imnginary only. Don't holler 'till you're hurt.

Very Respectfully, Frank K. Ali.kn, A Citizen and Tax Payer. Some School Beforms. Since the close of the school term, for this school year, in the City ot Washing ton, the people interested in the public schools there are taking steps to or ganize for the purpose of making chnng ea in the course of study. The com. plaint is so general, that the pupils of all ages are so loaded down with studies that their health has been sacrificed in order to increase their standard and the markings in their classes. The move ment is not in the hands of persons who are in the slightest degree opposed to our present system of public education. but the leadership in the movement is composed of the most ardent friends of the system, t his reeling that the health of the children in the public schools is being sacrificed by a multiplicity of studies is by no means of a local chnrac ter. It extends from from one end of the land to the other. How to reach an adequate remedy has received the at tention ot many of the best friends ot popular education, but the attempt at a remedy has been so spasmodic, and without organization up to this time. that the evil has been growing instead of diminishing. Hence, in the case of the people of Washington, they have edtered upon ward or other subdivis odrI urganizat:on to see if popular opinion expressed in that form may not secure some degree of relief. Teachers where the greatest amount of this com- plant exists, are ambitious to make good showing with their classes. Hoards of education are emulous ot showing to tax payers great results from extiendi ture of given sums of money. Rivalry between pupils is stimulated in a thous and different ways, and parental pride does us share in stimulating this over work, so long as the general system re mains urchanged. It is not necessary to enumerate all the influences that have brough about this state of affairs. It is enoi'gh to say that this inordinate rivalry and high pressure influence nre at work wherever there is a public ec lool, nnltl the people themselves, the parents of these overworked children. have come to the parting of the ways. It is not a question for the people o'f the capital city of the nation nloce. It con cerns this locality and the children of this locality as much as those where louder and more definite complants have been heretofore made. There is no better time than now to look into it before the Echools open for the fall term KTKinley'8 Career.

WILLIAM SCOTT. ihe First Colored Woman Ever Elected a Delegate to the Na tional Conventon. Mrs. William Scott, of Lathrop, Mo., was elected last (Thursday, May 22,) evening by the Woman's Relief corps as a delegate to the national convention, and she is the first colored woman that was ever honored to such a position, but the honor was a merited one. Mrs. Scott was born a slave in Clin ton county. Mo., and is popularly called "Missouri's Daughter," and the state is no doubt proud of this good nomas. She is now 41 years old. Her maiden name was Alice Carpenter, taking the nume of her old master, William Car penter, who educated her from infancy, giving her n collegiate education. She was married to William Scott m 187". She taught school twenty years in Mis souri and for thirteen years had charg of the colored school at Lathrop.sClu ton county, where she now makes lit home. In the year 1S03 she began working in the interest of the Western college, lo cated at Macon, the board and entire faculty of which art? colored. On June2I, she was presented with a handsome. gold watch by the citizens of Missouri.sh being called the "Daughter of Missouri because of the good and faithful work she had done for the people of her own race. In June lfcrj.t she began lecturing in the interest of the Western college and since that time has devoted all her time in that cause. Wherever she lec tures she receives favorable press com ments and wo are sorry that some ar rangement was not made to have her deliver a lecture in Ha'.nibal. The Des Moines Avalanche gives her the following notice: "The Negro lecturer, Mrs. Win. Scott, has delivered twentv-eight lectures in Des Moines, speaking in the different churches, before different societies, the two high schools. Highland Park col lege and the Drake university. Ily her ladviike bearing, her scholarship and accomplishments, she won the resjiec of all. Her lectures are both instruo tive and entertaining, and the large audiences which greeted her showed that the people appreciated the work of this gifted womau." Hannibal Courier Post. Mrs. Scott is well and f.ivorabl known to many of our citizens, havin. delivered several lectures to our people ot more than ordinary merit. Wo con gratulate her upon the distinction she has attained and this honor bestowed upon her. Fruit Growers. Met in Mr. Kaucher's otlice last Satur day afternoon and discussed some plums for their interest as given below: It was stated by one of the members. well posted in this part of the country about the apple crop, that it was sup posed we would have, perhaps, about one-third of a crop, and in consequence of the hail that visited so many lucidi ties, and in yiew of the openness of our winter, that no doubt greatly increased our insect enemies, that our fruit would be very defective. In some localities. without doubt, the crop mao lm wry good, while in other places near by it, may be nearly ruined. Mr.Schultz. from Upper Holt, who is perhaps one of the best horticulturists in the county, was here a few days n;;o and expressed to some of our fruit men that the crop of apples would be light, amounting to about one third of a crop. i'eaches will, from the injury to the trees, arising from the severity of the winds some time hvo destroying manv of our trees and greatly injuring others. in connection with the injury from hail, the crop would be light and more or less ot them knotty from the elTects of the hail. There will also be but few plums this year. Plums will not be more than one- tuth ot a crop, nnd some thought rasp berries were light in view ot our excess ive dry rails. The raspberry roots a o near tho surface of the ground and lit are etily affected with drouth. Sot sold for 82.2.1 per crate, while corn Forest City sold for 10 cents per bushel and butter for 0j cents, and the im prefston was trade on the minds of some that fruit growing after all was a profi table industry. It is said there will be a fair crop of blackberries where thpy escaped the ravages ot tha hail. Grapes were said to be a fair crop where they escaped the ravages of the hail; as the winter was milt! and even the tender varieties were not injured from that cause. Some years the Agawams were killed to the ground, and so were some other varieties, including sometimes the iron clad Concords. The loss of the fruit crop in this county will be a great one. the heavy rains that we had some time ngo have revived all kinds of vegetation, embracing our forest trees, as they indicate that they have a lease of life.

Harvest has betin interfered with und there is some danger of loss on that account. George Adotph and several others have their wheat in stnc'.c. Those who were fortunate enough to save their corn crop from destruction during tho rainy period have been abie to lay it by in good shape, this will anion ut to fully 30 per cent, of the entire crop. The Heather has been warm and sul try; persons alTecled with heart trouble are suffering. The mean temperature. however, is still lu-low normal, and the rainfall is deficient about two inches. but this may bo made up in the remain mg days ut the month. The rainfall for the year, so far, is 21.75 inches. If the normal for the remaining mouth is maintained it will reach 41.71 inches at the clo3e of the year.

Lu Gibson, who is one of our :nol prosperous and successful farmers, had nn experience the other day that ho failed to tell to his wife or friends in town. Just why, we do not know, ;u. I'M is always free to tell a good joke on any one, t-jvidiug it is not himself, and as the shoe this time was on his foot, this may be the reason that ho failed to tell it. A short time ago he had a co.v to calve; ho went out and brought tho cow and calf in, and the next morning .lfter letting the calf have all the ur Ik it wanted, he noticed the coiv's udder was still pretty full; ho milked her and got over a gallon of milk. 1 he cow appeared to bo restless and diasatisked in t.ieeoiv lot, wj ho turned her out, when slid im mediately struck out down in tho woods, but would return everv evening to her calve. She ret :ited these strangonc tions everyday, or several days, but Kd could assign n- reason for them until one day n neighbor came along and told 1 1 1 in that his oiing calf was out and down in tho woods with its mother; Ed went to the lot oi.Iy to find the calf there. He thought the neighbor was mistake 1, and that another ono of his cows had calved, so he went and investi gated, but sure enough it was the samo cow and with her was a calf, a male to the one in tho lot. Ed scratched his head a moment, and then it dawned upon hi in that the cow had given birth to twins, and he had only found one of them the first time.

When agent No. I's confederates came to rod tho house Mr. Schroeder was informed that he had signed a contract to have tho rods placed on his house i.ud that the cost would probably be f 12.VU0. Mr. Schroeder seen that ho had trapped and h?gan an in vestigation. The matter was finally set tled by Mr. Schroeder paying the agent 2 to recover the contract. We do not know just what the contract called for, but the swindlers evidently had Mr. Schroeder in a c'ose place, had they held him to the contract.
