Comes Up at Re publican I .eague Convention. INTEREST IN SENATOR'S TALK. Says Law of Competition is Still In Force and That Trust Question Will Settle Itself Four Canuldatcs for League Presidency. Chicago , Oct. 3. "Tho Iowa idea" cninu lu me aurlnce at umeuung under the auspices ot tne National uoaguo i of Republican clubs , which mot in | annual convention here yesterday. United States Senator J. P. Uollivor of Iowa wiis responsible. Senator Dolllvor's distinction as an orator and statesman assured him In advance the enthusiastic reception ho received from an audience thai filled the First regiment armory. Uituront became Intense when It was realized i by the delegates to the convention and spectators that they were being treated to the first public speech on the Biihject by a national loader of the party since the Iowa Republican state convention. Mr. Dolllvor said , In part : "Lot us look at the Iowa Idea for a minute , and I select that only because I am more familiar with It and because cause circumstanced have arisen to give it a universal advertisement. It has been presented to the country aa the sudden Impulse of dissatisfied mischief makers within the Republic an party. On the other hand , it la the mature judgment of a man whose mature judgment has never failed the party In forty years of service. Removal of Duty Not a Remedy. "Our party recognizes the necessity for largo capital for the transaction of a great business , especially for tha commercial conquests upon which we are now entering , but they also recog- nlze the abuses in great industrial en terprises and would have the govern ment stand between the community and the reckless perversion of the recent law of corporate property. It Is evident that even If it were desir able to kill the trusts , It could not be done by merely remittng the duties which their foreign competitors pay at our custom houses Even Mr. Bry an , who talks of putting the captains of Industry into a chain gang and sending J. Plerpont Morgan first to the poor house and then to the peni tentiary , admits publicly that the fiee trade remedy falls very far short of the object ho has in view. Nearly every sober student of the subject ad mits that It was pressure of compe tition which has drawn some of our industries first Into groups and then into gigantic combinations , under a single corporate management. I con fess that as a life-long friend of the protective system I take a very pro found Interest In the question. Passing Through Ordeal. "That principle , which never failed to justify the doctrine of protection In any period of the past , Is today passing through an ordeal hardly oven anticipated when the tariff law of 1897 was placed upon the statute books. If one field of production after another passes under the control of speculat ors intent on nefarious schemes to en gross the whole market , the protection literature of 100 years becomes mis leading and obsolete. "Before anybody makes up his mind that the socalled American trust Is a permanent Institution , let him con sider the long list of ambitious com binations which have already had their affairs wound up by the courts of Justice. The alcohol trust , the lin seed oil trust , the salt trust , the as phalt trust and scores of others whose very names are now even forgotten. What was the matter with these as tonishing creations of the promoters' art ? Nine out of ten of them were bogus , and without stretching the law very much , could have been denied the use of the mails on an ordinary fraud order. Law of Competition Still In Force. "The more I examine the old law of competition , the better It looks to me. If the day of settlement has al ready come to so many of these once formidable Institutions , how has It fared with those who have so far sur vived the test ? Already the evidence Is accumulating from which the free dom of trusts can bo foretold , even the most solvent and best managed of thorn all. The figures of the census show that neither in the mercantile nor the manufacturing world has the small dealer , who owns his business and gives It his personal attention , anything to fear in competition with the overgrown and topheavy Invest ments of capital that surround him. "There Is no room In this discussion for vain exclamations of alarm and despair. Up to this time the tariff policy to which wo owe the prosperous conditions which now surround us , has been the ally of independent cap ital in Its grapple with the modern trust system ; but If the day should ever como when the productive ener gies of the American people are Im potent In the presence of monopoly , the protection which for moro than a generation our laws have given to all our industries alike , is not likely to remain to enrich such a conspiracy of avarice and greed.

The Sixth regular Inlantry established the outpost for the First Kansas , the Eighteenth Infantry for the Second Kansas and the Twenty-second infantry - fantry for the Colorado battalion. When the state troops wore complete ly established on the outpost aai attack WUB made by a small force of cavalry. The National Guard did excellent work In forming their outpoatH , tha pickets and reserves being pouted promptly and with i\o delay. When , however , the attack was begun tha National guardsmen showed how much the Instruction given ot such n camp as Is no'w being held Is needed by them. In many Instances they rose from cover , fired standing or kneeling , and exposed themselves recklessly. While they did this all that could bo seen of the regulars was a brown dot where a hat could bo distinguished above the grass , but their steady , raipld flro from behind their cover vould have worked terrible havoc among the state troops. The latter were finally brought moro to cover , but throughout the fighting they bora themselves with an" air of "lot mo at 'em" that spoke as strongly for their natural bravery as It did for their need of just such instructions aa given them today.

COTTON. Strangers have been quite plentiful in Norfolk lately and in looking over the different H\ooks of goods on sale have been very agreeably surprised atone Btoro iu particular over all the othorH , several traveling men who liuvo vimtud every town of any importance in the Btato nn- aniinouHly ( k'ulured that they found no other Btoro that compares with this one outNide of Omaha and Lincoln. One wan heard to suy , "the quality of the geode , the neat nurl effective miinuur in which the entire stock is displayed shows an artistic development BO ilom found in western stores , " and tlio Norfolk citizen to whom the statement was made , ro- plitd , "yes and there is another thing about it too , when you buy anything here you got what you buy , you don't get a bed with the wrong side rails , n dresser with Bticky drawers , a carpet with holes in it , a table with the wrong legs , nor n fibbiuK match on iho part of the proprietor to straighten it out. If yon buy n iffl 00 mattress and a$4 75 rocker you will not discover next day that your neighbor bought the same kind for $3.00 and ? 2.75 , neither will you have any disputes or misunder standings afterwards about the prices or payments. " This place is quite an attraction in many ways and Norfolk ladies seldom fail to take their visiting friends through this store showing it to them as "one of the Bights of Norfolk. " They all seotn to be proud of it and on a trip of this kind recently a lady from Chicago was much surprised to find that she could have bought her piano at this store for just $155,00 less money than she had lately paid for the same make at home , and while discussing it the lady friend with her said , "why just look at this chamber snit , why it's jnst exactly the same as Tobey sells in Chicago cage nud had it in his window marked , 'only $125.00 , ' and here it is only $100.00. " "Yes" the other replied "just look nt thoBO rngs , $23.00 and $17.50 , they are just the same as Marshall Field sells for $27 00 and $21.00 , " and then the Norfolk Indy who was with them said , "yes , they ore just the same as my neighbor , Mrs. , went to Omaha and bought for $29.00 and $23 00 nt a bargain sale. " Just then n little girl came In with a china salad bowl and said , "mamma sent this back , its got nu old crack in it and wants you to give her a good ono. " On investigation it was found to have a competitor's price mark on it and the little girl was obliged to take it whore she could make an other selection from those "sample bargains" you sometimes road about. This incident called attention to the china department and before the ladies left tboy were unnblo to resist the temp tation to bny a few souvenirs to take back with them to Chicago to show their friends how they conld bny goods way ont iu Norfolk cheaper than at home. Soon after n gentleman from Stnnton called , bringing with him n Sears Roebnck catalogue but before he loft he bought a bill of furniture to the amount of $110.00 and found that after it was nil figured up ho had saved just enough to buy ono of those flno smoke less lamps , found only at this store. By smokeless In meant the kind that the flames don't crawl up and fill your houHO full of soot nnd bad odor , and when he left ho presented tlio proprietor , Chas , II. Johnson , with his cataloguennUsald , "next time I want anything in this line I will know where to come. " Itnunil < Uk Turn * . * with outer cjuilng N. J.
