Met even a fuller V st than it had in
Illinois in 1890. tor the Iowa republicans,
siace the declaration of the Iowa demo
crats that they would nominae Horace
Boies, have not fouDd themselves in a
position to refuse the challenge offered
in this way. Tbey will undoubtedly be
compeiltd to acrei'i it, aud this being
the fact it is to be hoped that tbey will
accept as their candidate a man worthy
to meet Governor Boies in a discussion
before the people of the state of the
questions which will then be of real im
' portance in determining their political
action. It is evident that the Iowa cam
paign of text year, if fought on these
lines, will be of more importance than
any state campaign which haa occurred
is thscoun .ry for years.
It is much to be doubted whi ther re
ports from Iowa pretending to kbuw divis
ions in the democracy of the s'ate as to
their most available candidate are lo be
fully credited. Governor Boies is the
only logical candidate for tbe Iowa
democrats in such a campaign. Be is
not only tbe man who has saved the state
from hopeless republicanism, but he is
now tbe only man tbe Hrwkrye demo

become a national figure by and through
the force of his personal popularity in bis
state and bis public addresses, whicn
have marked him as a man of close and

forci ful expression . His candidacy will
give the contest a wider dignity and im
portance than any other man could aonfer
upon it, and bring to the support of his
party the moral sympathy and active in
terest of tbe national democracy.
Tbe March of the Caravan.
Perhaps the weirdest and most Impress
ive of the many unwonted memories that
the traveler carrier away with him from
travel in tbe east is tbe recollection of the
camel caravan which he has encountered
at night. Out of the black darkuess is
heard the distant boom of a heavy beU.
Mournfully and with perfect regularity of
Iteration it Rounds, gradually swelling
nearer and louder, and perhaps mingling
with tbe tones of smaller bells signaling
the rearguard of the same caravan. The
big bell is -the insignia and alarm of the
leading camel alone.
But nearer and louder as the sound be
comes, not another sound and not a visible
object appear to accompany it. Suddenly,
and without the slightest warning, there
looms out of the darkness, like the appari
tion of a phantom ship, the form of the
captain of the caravan. His spongy tread
sounds softly on tbe smooth sand, and like
a great string of linked ghouls the silent
E recession stalks by and is swallowed up
