We publish to-day a communication
from O. W. Naile upon the subject of
telegraphic dispatches from Sioux City
to. ankton, in which that gentleman
presents his side^of the difficulty we have
encountered in times past in this connec
tion. It is proper and right that both
sides should have a hearing, and we are
therefore gratified that Mr. Kaile has
seen fit to present 'his side of the case.
Against our correspondent personally we
would rather utter not a word of censure,
as his individual acts and professions
hslvc always appeared on the surfaca as
being strictly and purely in the interests
of the business he represents. But.we
think we have grievances upon which
Mr. Naile has not touched We admit
that he sent us the dispatches on Sunday,
when our daily enterprise was first con
summated, and for the favor we are duly
thankful. But it must be borne in mind
that we had previously mado nv,? con
tract for reports, and that we had it in
writing, and as the telegraph companies
declined to njcognice it aa it waa arranged
we were justly entitled to aomething in
the way of unusual effort from themunti!
the matter could be arranged. in accord
~snc«r" with tbeir busineaa ideas. -For
tahnt Mr. Naile did on that occasion we
_makc our acknowledgements, but we
tannot yet forget the hours and evenings
we spent in the telegraph office in .this
yainly «adcaroring to get a word
over the wires from the Sioux City- office
in tepjy to inquiries touching this busi-\
ness arrangement between us and tho
conipiuiica. We have waited at /the
Yankton end of the circuit hour after
hour, until along-into the Small hours of
the night, sending at intervals enquiries
over the wiro touching a matter in which
we yrcre vitally interested ami receiving
not as much as a click of the instrument
by way of reply. It is this silent sort of
contcmptpthis p}an of completely ignor-.
ing us,' that has roused the spirit of re
taliatlon within us. So it was last Tues
day evening. It was perfectly under
stood between this office and the tele
graph office that we were to receive the
election returns tha^nigfat. In acctirdr
ance with that understanding we aesem
bled to learn the news, and had the typo*
graphical force of our own office and the
Herald office in waiting to put the re
turns into type. Nothing came, and
after vainly endeavoring to induce the
Sioux City office to tell us something
about the cause of the non-arrival of
news, we gave up the effort about mid
night and went to bed. A half a dozen
words from them on this as on previous
occasions would have made matters all
right, but they chose on Tuesday even
ing last to do as they had dope on other
important (important to us) occasions—
remain utterly silent while we were
vexed with the adiiety which a gentle
manly response would have dissipated.
The managers of the telegraph lines can
not afford to thus totally ignore Yankton
and its tributary country—cannot afford
to treat with contemptuous silence our.
appcals for intelligence bargained for, be
forehand. Our claims are entitled to the
respect which usually exists between
gentlemen even in their business transac
tions, and as this is wholly a matter Of
business we are of the opinion that Mr.
Naile will agree with us upon this point.
It should not be necessary for residents
of Yankton to make trips to Chicago, or
even to Sioux City, to find out about
matters which could be quickly settled
by a few wire messages, nor is it justice
to the patrons of a telegraph line to force
that necessity upon them. Courtesy is
cheap, and corporations should not ig
nore it, particularly where' such action
places them liable to the strongest sus
picion of favoritism. The Sioux City
Journal devotee considerable space to
strictures upon us for the position we
have taken, but as the Journal never can
discuss dispassionately anything pertain
ing to Yankton and Dakota, we do not
consider it worth while to say anything
to it by way of reply.

The Iowa election.
Davenport Gaictte, Oct. 15. StSStig^.
The result of the election in Iowa
deserves more than the mere passing
notice already given it with the re
turns only partially iu, and which are
not yet completed sufficiently to tell
within a few thousands the actual re,
publican majority. With the excite
ment of the Ohio dectibn, a result of
the great principles there, involved,
and the: doubt upon which party's
banners viotory would ultimately
perch, and these parties struggling
for success with a vim, vigor and
venom rarely if ever before witnessed
in that &tate, the election in Iowa at
tracted but comparatively little notice
or speculation among politicians
as one of the republican
stars that never sets, no intelligent
observer here or elsewhere could for
a moment doubt the success of the re
publicans in electiogtheir state ticket,
although an outside impression- seems
to have prevailed that the opposition
might secure a majority of the gefter
al assembly, and thus elect a demo
cratic United States senator. Such
fear was never entertained
The final result of the Iowa elec
tion is the succoas of the republican'
candidates for governor und other
state offices by an old-fashioned thirty
to forty thousand majority, with an
increased republican majority in both
senate and ouw of the legislature.
The peoplei of low* never before more
emphatically declared their confidence
in the republican party) nor their con
tempt for the professions and promises
of the so-called reform party. What'
is more, this republican victory was
a^bieved-ift-suoh-a mannerj'and so en
tirely consistent with its own high
purposes and party integrity, that re
publican pride and honor shared in
the glory of the success while the de
feat of the opposition, if not disgrace
ful, must be felt as deserved even by
This opposition is simply dcmocre
cy fighting, in disguise. The very
convention-called tp nominate their
candidates occasioned a dispute
among the democratic and liberal or
gans. It was by its head, a call for a
democratic state contention, and its
body an invitation to all opposed to
the republican party. The democrat
ic party in this state' had been form
ally disbanded. Its last fight had
been made aa an anti-monopoly
partv, but at the polls it was so
vCrushed under the heel of public opin
ion, that not even a state committee
survived with power to make this call
for a convention of fragments. Pinallv
after most absurd disputes, the call
was made by the chairman of the state
committees of defunct, factions, aid
the Iowa member of the national demi
w&tic wpauttce. Yet it was uoder-
stood and,known of all men, that this
opposition was the same old demo
crat io party, office hungering, treach
erous and grasping, but afraid tos fight
under its own. name.'
.Tho nominations ojf this convention
were precisely^adapted to the politi
cal influences which spawned them.
At the head of the ticket was the
name of an "old democrat, himself so
almost utterly forgotten in the march
of.political events! that it was suppos
ed his record might never be recalled.
Such a democratic gubernatorial nom
ination bad been aucccssful in Ohio,
nd much was hoped for in Iowa. The
nomination of Shep. Leffler not only
showed who, or what party remains
ruled the convention, but what pariy
form* to-day the real and only oppo
sition to the republican party in Iowa
the campaign throu.
:Yet this party fought
tempted disguise. It
under an at
was, called al
most everything but democratic, so
obnoxious is that name in the state,
yet if it had secured succecs, the vic
tory would have been claimed by this
opposition and heralded over the
country as a Democratic victory in
lows. None know this better than
those* who, having their grcivances
with the Kepublicau party, or deceiv
ed by the opposition cry arid promise
of relorm, voted to defeat the.Repub
lican ticket. —,
It is unnecessary to allude to the
manner in which this campaign was
conducted by the opposition, which
had no distinctive feature of its own,
but only opposition to every thing
Republican, as additional proof of
what we have said, that if defeat* in
this case was not disgrace, it must at
least be felt as deserved by those who
suffered it. The people of Iowa are
too intelligent to be deceived and
hoodwinked by any sett of politicians
in the manner attempted by the Dem
ocratic party, The experiment has a
second time been severely rebuked by
the intelligence which it insulted,
and will scarcely be repeated a third
-time. Hereafter, until the Democrat
ic party shall be no more, it is not
likely we shall have a party by any
other name to fight in this "state.
And so long as Iowa shall continue to
iicaa rule, it is not probable her peo
ple will demand or make any change,
and it is scarcely possible if they do,
that, with aUjts cry_for__reform, the
Democratic party will itself have be
come so reformed to be safely trusted
to the charge of the welfare of this
State and people. It must be some
new party, abundant in the graces of
the old Republican party as it now is,
and free from the rascalities of the
Democratic party of the present "day,
whicb will ever supplant the existing
political power in Iowa.
