Few of them are here, and none of

formulated a new demand, which
meets tho approval of the Populists
who havn been consulted. It is that
they shall insist upon the withdrawal

withdraw, that the silver U.eu and
Populists unite in putting up in every

candidate. This, it is urged, hhould
be presented to tho national Demo

IOWA PATENT OFFICE REPORT-
Des Moines, July 0. John Miller,,
assignor of one-fourth to E. E.
Gatchcl. (both o Stuart. Iowa,) has
been allowed a patent for hardening
copper. The primary object of tho
patent law is not for individual benefit,
but for the public good nnd n mOrpoly
of anj patentable discovery or inven
tion is granted in "lew of getting it on
record so it cannot become a lost art.
Mr. Miller's invention consists in a
competition and n process for harden
ing copper, (covered by separate claims)
and is an important improvement in
metallurgy. A razor and other edgo
tools exhibited show that ductile
copper has been hardened to adapt it
for mukibg edgo tools that require
strength nnd durability. Mr. Miller
claims that his process also prevents
oxidation nnd detonation, and
consequently there will be no
verdigris to poison persons who
may bo wounded by tools made
of copper. Vnluablo information about

copies of the drawings nnd specifica
tions of any United States patent sent
