"The Democratic party of Iowa deter
mined that, as there Is much more money
to be collected from the saloonkeepers of
vlhe State in aid of its campaign than
from the prohibition societies, the best
thing to be done bv it was to admit the
taloonism. Accordingly, nearly tho first

Convention pronounced tho prohibition

may be oxpected to contribute largely to
the Democratic campaign fund, and
those gentlemen resident in Iowa whose
breweries, distilleries and saloon proper
ties have been made unprofitable by the
prohibitory law will contribute even
more largely. As a plank for revenue
only the Democratic resolution against
prohibition is insortod ingeniously. But,
even without regard for revenue, it was
eminently proper that the Democratic
party should resolve in favor of free

the Democrats they now would abstain
from putting a third ticket in the field
and wouldjthrow their whole strength in
support of" tho Republican party, which
is llkt ly to stand pledged against the re
peal of tho law now in force, which
practically Is prohibitory. Vet it hardly
is to be expected that the Prohibitionists
will act wisely. It is likely that by
running "a straight-out ticket" they will
strengthen the Democratic party, which
has pledged itself to repeal all vestiges
of prohititory legislation.
Taking special care to secure saloon
ism a firm footing upon its platform,
the Iowa Democracy invites all the
other isms, except prohibitionism, to
stand thereon. Never having itself ac
complished any measure of social, finan
cial, adminstrative, or elective reform,
always having been found in opposition
to every such measure whenever there
appeared to be a possibility of its pas
sage, the Democratic party of Iowa now
professes sympathy with every real,
every fanciful, every idiotic scheme of
reform. It is the old negative platform
of generally being in faver of everything
and specifically pledged to nothing that
the Iowa Democracy has reconstructed
in a vain hope of deceiving the people.
For, excepting to repeal of the prohib
itory law, the Democratic convention of
Iowa specifically pledged itself to nothing
that the Democrats of the State can ac
complish if placed in control of the Leg
islature and in possession of tho (Gover
nor's office. The resolution in favor of
taxation of all kinds of property is vague,
for if all kinds of property held within
the State now are not taxed, then the
assessors have failed of duty. The reso
lution is meant to convey the idea of the
Democratic party being favorable to
more exact assessment of railway proper
ty, but it is careful not to say so. It is
so framed as to be capable of explana
tion to the farmers as meaning much,
and to the railway men as meaning noth
ing. It is a dishonest juggle. It is re
impudence that charges the Republicans
of the Twenty-third General Assembly
with defeat of the Australian ballot law
whenever a fair and practicable sehome
of electoral reform is proposed the Re
publicans will be found voting for it,and
it will be very strange if the Democrats
are not found voting against it. That
"control and regulation of railroads as
now enacted by law," which is approved
by the fifth resolution of the Democratic
convention, is of Republican conception,
and the only practical opposition to it
has been manifested by tho Democratic
party, which sought to retard its opera
tion by endeavoring to elect railway par
tisans as commissioners to execute it.
In its resolution for "the free coinage
of silver" the convention overreached
itself. The West does not desire to have
the United States coin without charge
all the European. Asiatic, Mexican, and
South American silver that can be
dumped on its shores. The West does
not desire to h&ve the currency of this
country contracted by the payment of
millions yearly for the purchase of for
eign bullion. The Republican Conven
tion of Ohio truly voiced Western senti
ment when it resolved for "the free coin
age of American silver." There will be
money enough if all the silver of Ameri

ocrats, like their Eastern brethren, hate
any project that protects or gives ad
vantage to any American industry or

miners receive eight cents a day, on
equal terms with tho products of our

the free-trade spirit. Our own mines
can supply us with silver in plenty, and
the demagogic utterance on this point is
merely a wanton display of Democratic
hostility to American institutions. "Free

enough, and that is the Republican de
mand as voiced by Ohio, which Iowa will
In national as in State matters the
Iowa Democracy is opposed to American
Industries. "We denounce the McKinley

resolution. Let them denounce. But
the Mills bill, which the makers of that
platform would like to substitute, would
not have made sugar cheaper by two
cents per pound, nor would it have in
creased the pi ice of wheat by ten cents
per bushel through the agency of reci
procity, nor would it have prevented the
formation of that Anglo-American ^alt

Prosperity and Foreign Trade.
The British embassy at Rome has
mado an interesting report on the for
eign trade of Italy. From a free trade
standpoint the report indicates a very
bad state of affairs. Both exports and
imports show a very large decrease.
The exports of 'lSlK) were #15,000,(XX) less
than In 1881), and the imports fell off In
an almost equal degree. As Italy has
recently established a protective tariff,
hero was a good opportunity for the
British embassy to furnish a powerful
Anglo-Mugwump freo trade essay, show
ing how Italy had thrown away the mar
kets of the world. But no, the British
official, Mr. Deering, who compiled the
report, candidly admits that, "in spite of
these ominous figures, there are certain
facts connected with them which are not
unfavorable for the national prosperity
One of tho main items of decrease In
imports is grain, which is due to a boun
tiful harvest so that the value of the
cereals imported in 1890 was £1,800,000
less than In 1880.
decrease in the Im
port of cotton and woven goods is due to
increased activity in Italian weaving
establishments, marked by increasing
imports of raw cotton. The imports
of coal are also increasing. Simi
larly decreases in tho import of
silk goods and in the export of
raw silk indicate an increasing domestic
silk business." Indeed, Mr. During re
gards the customs returns as showing
that these textile industries in Italy are
not in a depressed condition, and this
view is corroborated by the large im
ports of chemical products and dyeing
machinery. As to the decrease in ex
ports, it is largely accounted for by in
creased ability to consume, and conse
quently increased consumption at homo.
We have before called attention to
the circumstance that Italy, notwith
standing that tho Government is on the
verge of financial bankruptcy, Is grow
ing richer as a nation that wages,
wealth and comfort are Increasing and*
all this in the face of a serious decline in
foreign trade. The facts simply go to
prove that, while foreign trade is to be
desired and acquired, and can be an im
portant factor in national welfaie, the
chief and primary factor in such welfare
is the control by a nation of Its homo
trade. Italy is getting along better with
a loss of foreign trade, because Italy
is selling to and buying from Italy, and
is sustaining in Italy the Industries that
formorly did their manufacturing for the
Italian market in France and England.—

THERE is an impression—a very gen
eral impression—that the protective tar

of tho United States: that protective
tariffs were inaugurated and are main
tained by the manufacturers of the
United States. The exact reverse is
true In American history. The men who
made the first great protective tariff law,
signed by George Washington on tho
Fourth of July, 1789, were the farmers
of the United States. That first great
Congress was occupied by planters and
farmers, with a few professional men

nority and the men who mado that tariff
were either the planters and farmers
themselves or they wore the representa
tives of an agricultural constituency.
And they made it for a purpose. They
made it with their eyes wide open, look
ing to the future. It was the second
law passed by the American Congress
and signed by Washington on that day
memorable in American history. The
men who made it had the courage of
putting in the body of the bill exactly
what they meant. They declared that
they were making the tariff bill for two
purposes. First, to raise revenue to
conduct tho infant Government, and sec

Hardships of Teaching In Spain.
Hie condition of the public teacher in
Spain is not to be envied. The payment
of their salaries is almost always far in

day of a man who had not received a

seventeen years. The total amount of

A RKVENTJK tariff such as is advocated
hy our political opponents is always
paid by the consumer. There is no ex
revenue, and revenue only, is always
borne by the consuming nation import
ing from abroad. It is so in England
and is so wherever revenue tariffs aro
enforced. That may be so primarily
with a protective tariff, but it ceases to
be so tho very moment we are capable of
successfully manufacturing among our
selves, and the competition at home
regulates and controls the prices to the
advantage of the consumer. No man
can controvert that, but Mugwump,
Free trader or Democrat, whatever
your name, the tariff you advocate is
alw.ays paid by tho consumer, and
human history and our own experience
have taught us-that in the vast ma'ority
of cases protective tariffs are never paid
by the American consumer.
PRACTICAL illustration of the opera
tions of the McKinley tariff law is to be
foupd in the dccrcasing importations of
woqlen manufactures and worsted goods
since it went into effect For the first
threo months of 181)0, under the o law,
the importations of woolen manufactures
were 1,471,400 yards, as against l,ljO,
100 yards for the first three months of
1891, under tho new law. For the same
period in 1890 tho importation of worsted
goods was 16,954,300 yards as agaiust
7,230,300 yards this year. The country's
consumption of these goods is certainly
not less, but greater, this year than last.
Increasing population alone would have
the effect of making larger consumption.
Theso figures show as no argument can
show the benefit of the McKinley bill to
the wage-earners of the United States.
