UNITED WE STAND
Through the gathering storm ot
politics one sign of greatest promise
for the republican party etanda forth
to reassure the timid and inspire the
strong. It is the perfect unity of the
republican party throughout the coun-
try as distinguished from the shat-
tered condition of the democracy.
President McKinley's administration
has been the most active and strenu-
ous si nee the civil war and no pre-
ceding president has bad to grapple
with qupftlooe more difficult to solve
or the solution of which has been more
heavily fraught with possibilities of
good or evil. During the last three
years the national administration has
been called upon to choose between
alternative paths of destiny and to
make decisions of euoh supreme mo-
ment that it may be said of them that
they ohanged the course of the world.
Into Preeldent McKinley's handa
waa committed the duty of orushlng
effectively and forever the vicious free
ailver propaganda which had caused
this oountry to descend to the verge
of bankruptcy. President McKinley
was charged further with the respon-
sibility of rescuing American Industry
and Ameriean labor from the blight of
the democratic tariff law. The results
of both of these two great acts of the
early part of President McKinley's ad-
ministration are to be seen today in
the unparalleled prosperity that per-
meates every department of national In-
dustry. Every mill furnace factory work-
shop and mine is worklDg to its full
capacity: the products of the farm were
never so readily sold or at such good
return for labor expended; hardly a
laboring man throughout the country
is out of work; wages rule at the high-
est point ever known; we are selliog
our manufactured products is foreign
markets to a degree never dreamed of
before this year; money is plentiful
ruling interest rates .low investments
profitable capital confident and the
whole nation its people strengthened
by prophetic hope is throbbing with
the ceaseless pulse of healthy indus-
Considering now the part that Presi-
dent McKinley has borne in the ex-
ternal affairs of the United States his
record is equally strong. The problem
ha bad to meet upon assuming the ex-
ecutive office was one that might easi
ly appal a less able man. When war
seemed Inevitable to the average mau
President McKlLley knowing too well
the unprepared condition of the ooun-
try due to the narrow policy of his
predecessor held back by main
strength the almost overwhelming
Dressure of the unanimous demand for
Immediate hostile action.
Had the president done no other
great thing during his administration
the strength he displayed at this orlt
leal juncture would be enough to mark
him as one of the greatest of presi
dents; but when he hai completed
the marvelous work of preparation
for which war was delayed he did ex
actly the right thing at the right time.
The result of his conduct of the war
astounded the world. In an incredi
bly short time one of the proudest
nations of the world was crushed and
the Vnited States for the first time
assumed her true position in world
politics. The balance of power is ours
and as the arbiter of the sword Amer
lea must henceforth be considered in
any scheme that may be undertaken
by the powers of the old world
At a stroke we opened the markets
of the orient forever to our people
Diplomatic action followed war and to
President McKinley's administration
will always be ascribed one of the
greatest diplomatic victories of modern
times through which the leading com
merclal nations of the world agreed to
abandon their "sphere of influence'
plan for the "open door" in favor of the
The changes that have been brought
about both within and without during
the last three years have been so stu
psndous that before we can fully com
prehend their significance we must
wait to view them in the raln light of
history. Bat enough hab?en said to
demonstrate the fact that for positive
aggressive origiaal and concentrated
activity the three years just past bave
had no parallel.
Through it all we see in the van of
progress the banner of the republican
party perfectly united in behalf of the
glorious principles that have been its
Inspiration. There has been eome
light misunderstanding at times a
few have permitted their personal
prejudices to cloud their view of the
general good a few bave sought by
methods little less than treasonable to
weaken the army In the field. And
yet snch a speotacle of a united party
passing through events so remarkable
as those of the last three years and now
standing together on the eve of a
presidential election all personal or.
sectional prejudices and jealousies sunk
in the enthusiasm and the common
purpose of forward movement such a
peotacle has never before been wit
On the other band we see a motley
array of men and principles of
schemes and counter schemes of pri-
vate ends mixed with demagoguery al
calling Itself demooraoy.
The people are forgotten in the
sMnsh machinations ol the leaders.
The fathers are quoted against them
selves. The JeffersoDlan democrats
oall Bryan a heretics and Bryan retorts
that he only Is the true prophet of
democracy. "Democracy" today is
but confusion. . Many leaders of many
factions claim precedence each
for his own. Platforms conflict can-
didates plot againtteach other our
heroes are cat's paws.
And through it all. Bryan the great
seer and prophet of the common
people who professes to truet the aver
age man to rule the nation wno pro
fesses to believe in the power of the
'free man's ballot" insults the com
mon people ot his country by con.
tlnually asserting that their votes can
be bought and that money and not
right principles urge them at the
faotorles for the manufacture of some
of these articles. Is the chamber of
commerce considering small things?
There is fun at some funerals. At
Cincinnati for example in the nation
al convention of the middle-of-the-
road or anti-fusion populists a mem
ber from Missouri pointing to a large
placard on the wall proclaiming a de
mand for the free coinage of silver
at the ratio of 16 to 1 characterized it
as a corpse and demanded that it be
taken out and burled.
The correspondents at Sioux Falls
seemed to think that it was necessary
to assure the public that the populist
convention was "well dressel good
mannered and thoroughly well behav
ed and with only occasional whiskers.'
This confession as to whiskers settles
the status of the convention. It was
more democratic than populistlc.
Doctor Pfeiffer with three f's
a speoiallst in influenza declares
that the ohlef cause of influenza is the
use of ordinary handkerchiefs and re
commends the Japanese paper hand
kerchief of which a victim of influenza
would reauire to use several score a

A dispatch in the Herald today
announces that the Duke of Argyle is
to be governor of Australia. When
the duke married the queen's
daughter a Scotoh peasant exclaimed:
"Eh mon! But it's a proud woman
the queen should be today." Now
oomes the duke's time to be proud.
The consensus of opinion is that
Salisbury's speech has killed the
queen's shamrock in its budding

Astronomy Is a popular study now
on account of the coming eclipse.
The new Iowa school library law
provides that every school district must
annually set aside 5 to 15 cents for
each child for school age the money to
go toward the purchase of books for
the library. During the academic
year the books are to be kept la
the sohool house but during vaoation
time they are to be kept for the use of
the pupils in the house of some one
selected by the board. As the books
may be loaned to persons not pupils
it is suggested that the oountry
stores be ueed as vaoation quart
ers for the library and the
proprietors of those places in
view of the additional trade which the
presence of the books would bring are
eajrer to comply. The books to be
purchased are limited to a list which
the state board of education is to make
out. At present nearly all the Iowa
oltles and towns are availing them-
selves of the law permitting school
directors to spend S25 ayear on books;
women's clubs are aiding largely in the
work and in the rural districts the
new idea will probably be as well re-
ceived. Texans can well afford to
watch the operations of so wise a law
and if they are satisfactory adopt it.
