j BENEFIT IS I'KOMISBD.
Some benefit seems likely to accrue
to- the city and to its citizens from the
agitation following the recent deaths by
electricity. The application of a SL
Louis telephone company for an injunc
tion against the city authorities gives
promise of clearing up some hazy pro
visions regarding electrical wort in the
St. Louis's municipal authorities, as
iwel! as the wire-users of the city, teem
to have awakened to the fact that elec
trical work needs regulating and super
.vlslng and that the laws adopted for its
regulation are .in need of literal enforce
ment. A considerable extension of the con
duit district and a thorough revision uud
amplification of the ordinances for tiie
protection of life and property from
electricity should be the outcome of the
, TRIBUNE OR TRUSTITE?
Sir. Bryan's talk 011 trusts to the
students of the University of Chicago
contained certain clear statements of
fact which should have their due weight
In influencing all who are now htudyiug
this great problem with a view to Its
.wisest solution in the public interest.
IT 13 "undoubtedly true that any mo
nopoly in private hands Is indefensible
anfl Intolerable. It is equally true that
the tendency of monopoly is to amass
great fortunes In the hands of the few
and to distribute increasing distress
among the many. And It is unutus
tionably true that the trusts embody ex
actly this principle of monopoly in
private hands which is indefensible and
intolerable, and tliat the- trusts are now
amassing great fortunes in the hands
of the few and distributing increasing
distress among the many.
Mr. Bryan's honest utterances against
trustism are in marked contrast to the
evasive platitudes of Mr. McKiniey.
The McKiniey evasions are designed'
only to blind the people to the fact that
tha, present administration and the Re
publican party propose to staud by the
trusts to the last. The Democratic
leader is on the side of the people as
against the trusts. The Republican,
leader Is on the side of the trusts a.s
against the people. It Is for the people
themselves fo say which of the two
shnli triumph at the polLs In November
the Tribune or the Truslile.
Whatever may be the extent in Illi
nois of that "Republican apathy" of
which Boss Ilanna complains, the news
reports of the great enthusiasm aud in
terest attendant upon the Democratic
campaign In that State indicate that the
apathy In question is certainly confined
to the Fauks of Mr. Ilanna's party.
There are several good reasons. The
State of Illinois has been sorely tried,
at great sacrifice of its interests, by the
Tanner-Cullom feud for spoils aud ma
chine dominance. It has learned, through
grievous experience, that a Republican
administration means a machine malad
ministration. It has nothing to hope for
In the event of , young Dick Yates's elec
tiona candidate already committed to
Tanner. There Is absolutely nothing in
the appeal of Republicanism to the peo
ple of Illinois calculated to create en
thusiasm tending to Republican victory.
On the oilier hand, the Democratic
candidate for Governor. Mr. Alschuler,
is a clean and able German-American
to whom Illinois may safely look for an
admirable administration of the State's
affnirs In the people's interests. Day by
day he grows stronger among the voters
of "the State, who know him for a ca
pable and honest man desirous of the
popular welfare. He is not dominated by
a Boss nor tied to the wheels of a ma
chine. The platform en which he stands
Is a platform indorsed by the American
people with especial emphasis In this
crisis of American history a platform
which declares for the Republic against
There will be even greater apathy
manifested by the Republicans of Illi
nois before the present campaign is
ended. The stay-at-home vote of Repub
licans wearied to the bone by Tanner
ism and Cullomism uud Hanuaism and
imperialism will be a potent factor for
Democratic success at the polls. There
are good grounds for the belief that
Bryan and Stevenson and Alschuler,
three Iiliuoisnus, will carry the Stale of
Illinois for Democracy this year by a
MARK TIIE DIFFERENCE.
Ziegenhelnism is the controlling Influ
ence in the Republican party of Mis
souri. The Globe-Democrat is its tireless
champion; so devoted that no degree of
municipal in:il.idmiuIstnitiou cjn lrlii'-':i
word of reproof into the columns of thai
paper, though uiiie-teutlis of ReptililV.m
readers are Miylng openly thai Xiegen
lieini.sm i a disgrace to St. I.ouis.
The ("Iolie-Deiiiocrat is so williug to
give the State government of Missouri
over to Ziegeuhelii thai it employs
the means of false btatemeut to pnmu.te
that unworthy purpose. It ciaiunil jes
terday thai Mr. Doekery li.nl appime.l
the expenditures of the last legislative
session as just and reasonable.
Mr. Doekery did nothing or the kind.
He proved that oue Joseph Plory had
misstated these expenditures. In prt
M'Utlug the proof he was too temperate
to say. as he might have said, lhat
Mr. 1'Iory either lied brazenly or was
transparently ignorant of the simplest
Mr. Doekery has never approved the
exiK-uditures of the last session. Every
fair-minded Democrat has admitted that
the expenses of that session were in
some respects open to criticism.
But the Democratic party has shown
Its capacity for good government by
milking this year evptiouail good
nominations for the Legislature. It per
ceived the danger or carelessues in
this respect. It applied the remedy.
Compare that vigorous action with the
record of Ziegeiilieiuism In St. I.ouis.
Bad has been made worse month by
nioutii. There has been no effort at bet
terment. The streets, the lights, the hos
pital, the parks in fact, every depart
ment shows the effects of corrupt gov
ernment. Thu salaries go on, though the
pay roils are stuffed. A public service
may fall into decay, but the salary list
ever grows larger. It is practically im
possible to get a measure through the
Municipal Assembly until the combines
have searched every line for opportuni
ties of boodle aud spoils.
The Legislature of Missouri may have
laid Ilself open to criticism. The gang
which governs St. Ixniis has become a
lit subject for extensive criminal pro
ceedings. That Is the difference. The
Democratic party of Missouri lias shown
itself quick to notice faults aud to
correct them. The gang In St. Imls
boasts of corruption, and its only re
pining is that franchises aud cou tracts
are not as plentiful as they were. Its
only aspiration is to remain In power
long enough to loot all the rich oppor
tunities associated with the World's
And don't mistake. Ziegcnheluism is
the Republican machine in the State as
well as In St. Louis. If Flory is to be
the World's Fair Governor aud one of
the gang is to be the World's Fair
Mayor, the people of the State will look
back on the session of ISO'J as a speck
less paragon of political dignity and
DISASTER FOUND HEROES.
I'nlKiunded admiration for the energy,
resolution and clear-headedness of the
authorities of Galveston mingles with
the sympathy aud sorrow which the na
tion feels for that city In the most fear
ful calamity that has ever visited the
United States. Johnstown, with its loss
of i.OUO, shrinks into insignificance be
side Texas's estimated loss of 5,0:)t).
There but one town suffered and the
surrounding district was left whole and
strong for the work of relief. In Gal
veston the survivors for miles around
were worn with fear aud the labor of
resisting the storm. Had aid been ready
at hand the isolation of the city by the
cashing away of bridges would have
prevented its reaching the sufferers.
In this situation thu action taken by
Mayor Jones said his helpers to relievo
the living, to bury the dead and to lc
store order out of awful chaos calls for
admiration and applause. It required
nerve, resolution and courage to de
clare martial law, to confiscate provi
sions for public use at stipulated price-,
to regulate with au iron hand the trans
portation of passengers across tin; liay
and to compel every able-bodied man to
carry his share of the burden even to
tiie use of forte ami bayonets where
they were needed. Tills prompt estab
lishment of a llrm government in the
devastated city will do as niuih to ie
lieve the woe of the city from within
as the work of Governor Sajers of
Texas is doing to relieve it fiom with
out. St. Louisa ns aud Missourlans should
show their appreciation of such manly,
heroic qualities displayed in times of
the sorest need. Such courage and ef
ficiency should not go begging for re
lief. The relief should come spontane
ously from all parts of the country.
There is ample Justification for the
elaiuinow made at Democratic national
headquarters in Chicago that the same
ratio of Republican loss and Democratic
gain shown in the election returns from
Maine, If maintained in certain doubt
ful States, will result in the election of
Mr. Bryan to the presidency.
There is also the best reason for be
lieving that this ratio will be so main
tained and, probably, surpassed. The Re
publicans exerted their utmost effort
to score a victory in Maine which should
convince the doubting that an over
whelming Republican victory In Novem
ber was certain. Oue of the most sa
gacious and thoroughly trained cam
paign managers In the Union, National
Committeeman Manley of Maine, di
rected the Republican fight in that State.
The national machine was subject to his
orders. Unlimited means were at his
disposal. He has done the best that
was possible to any Republican this
year, and the result is ominous indeel
- That there should be great and un
concealed fiennbiican chagrin at this
showing from Maine is entirely natural.
It is no wonder that Senator Ilanna. tno
Boss of the Republican national organi
zation, declined to express an opinion
on the Maine elections. It is not strange
that Vice Chairman Payne of the Re
publican National Executive Committee
refrained from hazarding a statement
as to the cause or the Republican losses
In Maine. It is a. crisis when, for a few
days at least, the wisest Republican pol
icy Is to say nothing. Some Republican
lightning calculator on the Grosvenor
order may. after a breathing spell, be
enabled to figure out something besides
crushing defeat in the facts as they now
As a matter of fact, the watchful lead
ers of the Republican party know as
well as any one else just what the trou
hie is. They see now, to their dismay,
that they have misjudged the American
people. Not for the sake of plunder and
booty are Americans willing to dishonor
their Goveruiu -nt by revelsiug its si len
dld teachings and lepti Hating its noM,
and beneficent polWs of a century i ast.
It N natural that such Stales as Maine
aud Vermont should in shell a crisis
stand tinn for ihe old Republic against
Empire. I heir example will be followtd
l.v other Slates In Nowiiib.r win r Mitli
results are possible as to sweep tit"
parij of Empire from cmitiol of th
Government and to so firmly re estab
lish the Republic uu its original fouadi
lions that no impeiial traitor shall dare
again to assail t'lrni:' foundations or seek
to betray the Republic-.

(special interest and au exceptional grat
ification the detail of the pronounced
Slleiess scored in New York City by
the dramatized ersion of Mr. Winston

timately concerned In tills new stage

Naturally enough, It will be some time
beiore St. Louisans may hope to wit
ness .Mr. John Drew's eminently satis
factory production or .Mr. Chnrchiir.s

"I'lchiird Carvel" Is evidently in for a
long run at the Empire. This fact or a
pleasure defened will not, however, less
en the local interest manifested in the
progress of the play in popular favor,
aud a very notable engagement should
be certain when "Richard Carvel" shall
finally come to St. Louis.
Up to the present Bryan. Stevenson

been named in the lists of "Democrats
who will vote for McKiuIey." Nothing Is
impossible, however, to the perseveriug

John G. Woolley, the Prohibition can
didate for President, appears to size up
the McKiniey administration very just
ly when he says that It has given the
United States "a government without
the people. In spite of the people, against
the people and for the syndicates."
New pollbooks will be used in the
election next November, and no man's
name will be on them, no matter how
often he has voted from Ids present
place of abode, unless he has registered
anew. If you can register to-day don't
put It off until to-morrow.
Perhaps Vermont aud Maine did not
have time lo digest the imperialistic lit
erature with which tiie Republican cam
paigners plastered them and for that
reason the decrease in Republican ma
jorities was not as great as it might
Chauncey Ives Filley attracts atten
tion to the fact that on September 10

St. Louis. "And Mayor Ziegeniiein's ad

observed in that time," ho adds.

A Republican municipal administra

to darken the prospect for Republican

on account of tne dense crowd of people.
Escorts were provided for the ladles, but
they could not make headway in the crowd.
The farmers and merchants and laboring

On the stand besides the orators men
tioned were Samuel Vaughn, candidate for
Kepiesentatlve: C. F. Coleman, candidate
for Senator; itepresentative James JL Gray
of Decatur. Cnarles Boeschenstein. Judge
Webb and a host ot the old-fashioned Jack
sotilan Democrats of a third and a half
century ago. among them John Walker,
aged '?. wno had a seat of honor between
Stevenson and Todd. A magnificent audi
ence of nearly &..".) persona greeted Judge
U. W. Henry when he announced the pro
gramme for the afternoon. v
"The moon risen at & o'clock," said Judge
Henry, "and we have a treat In store for
jou to-night. II. C. Bell of Marshall will
address jou. Remember, the moon rises at
& o'clock, and this day Is dedicated to
Democracy In Fajette County, and we want
you ail to enjoy It to the full extent."
Then ho presented Jir. Stevenson and a
great roar went up from the people, who
were packed so close that they couldn't
give their arms play to applaud, but
they could yell, and tney did yell. Post
master John Bingham was in the audienca
taking notes for use "when Yates Is
elected," for Bingham expects to dispense
the plums In this district, a claim that Is
disputed by John Brown, eminent friend of
"Yates knows who nominated him. I
guess," said a Brown captain to me. "Yates
knows that it was Brown's crowd that voted
for him at Peoria, aad he knows that Bing
ham and bis mafia were for Reeves clear
through the piece. Brown will have some
thing to sny, and Bingham will be a dead
one as soon as his term as- Postmaster is
"if John Brown had been the boss of
Fayette County." sneered a friend of Bing
ham, "the Fayette delegation would have
been for Hanecy at Peoria, and a few mora
like It would have salted Yates's goose for
ever. I guess Yates knows a hawk from a
handsaw, and he. won't forget his friends.
Another thing: Bingham was on the side of
Hamlin, and Hamlin will side with hint
whenever jobs are dispensed. Brown la
shrouded with the balance of Tanner's po
litical family. Just watch the smoke from
Bingham's pipe after election day."
It makes little odds which ids receives
the smiles of Y'ates now. for after Novem
ber the candidate wUl have no further use
for votes or friends be will bo a political
cadaver himself, and Brown and Bingham
can maul each other as much as they please.
I didn't see the Republican candidate for
the Senate. "Hash" Hunt, But 1 am told
that he Is wearing the old hickory shirt be
wore six years ago when he made such a
persistent search for votes and ran behind
his ticket In fact, was the lowest man on
the ticket. "Hash" Is trying to hook the
farmers this year, but the bait is stale It
ls the same crop of flshworms he used in
1S91, and by that 1 mean his make-up as &
farmer In hard luck is not a dazzling suc
cess In the campaign.
Another eminent statesman present was
Tommy Edwards of Coffecn. a Populist of
the Jtlddle-of-the-Road variety, who seeks
not so much the succe-s of principles as he
docs the defeat of Democrats who stand
practically on the same plalform as himself.
Blwards and hl3 Ilk made a play for points
two years ago and pledged themselves to
tako enough votes from Tom Jett to lnsuro
his defeat. They sing a lower tune this
year, but the refrain is the same and Jett
will have 1.000 more majority than he had
Appeal to Reason.
Jtr. Stevenson's address here this nftcr
noon was a splendid effort. The day was
pleasant and the Immense crowd furnished
an Inspiration for him. He addressed him
self not to the prejudices and passions, but
to the Judgment and reason, of the people.
He talked for a short time about the Boers
and pointed out that they were fighting for
what the heroes of the Revolution fought tor
tho right to govern tnemseives and air.
Stevenson could not understand why th
greatest free Government on the world's)
footstool could not express a word of sym
pathy for them.
He read from Lincoln's utterances In 15l.
when he expressed his fear of the rower of
the wealth of country, and In comment
"That sounds like a Democratic speech,
don't It? But vre are not accused this year
of making Republican speeches If we quota
from Abraham Uncoln. The Republicans
dare not quote blm, for they have been
drifting awav from the Reaubllcan party
of Uncoln and Seward for many years, and
now have reached a point where there la
no resemblance between the party of Lin
coln and the party as it now Is. The Dec
laration of Independence and the Constitu
tion are two Instruments that bclons ex
clusively to the Democracy this year. No
Republican has use for either In his)
speeches. What would Lincoln say to-day
In the presence of the gigantic trusts and
corporations that have absorbed the Repub
"The Democratic party In Congress and
your Congressman. Jir. Jett, was one of tho
number placed Itself en record attalnst the
trust evil. You must recognize It as an evil
nnd a menacing one. ami one that can be
dealt with only by legislation. You know
Its history, how recent It has grown to
such gigantic proportions, and you know tho
party in power has not lifted a finger to
stf.mp it out. Now. into whose hands mill
yoj give the power to strangle It? Into tho
hands of the party In power? Will you give
this sacred duty to the friends or the vic
tim;! of the trusts? I want to ask if any
of you have heard that tho trusts have con
tributed to the Democratic party7
"Choose ye which road ye will take. It
you believe trusts are a good thing don't
vote the Democratic ticket. Democrats are
enemies of trusts."
Very effective was Jir. Stevenson on Im
perialism, nnd his closing words, quoted
from Jir. Lincoln and adopted by the
Democracy, will linger In the minds of his
hearers for weeks: "We plant ourselves on
the rock of the Declaration of Inde
pendence, nnd all the gates of hell shall not
prevail against us."
Todd IVell Received.
He was followed by the glee club and Jfr.
Todd, who pleased the audience with his
magnificent voice and vigorous. logical
treatment of the pending questions. Jir.
Todd never has trouble in holding an audi
ence, and It makes no difference how lata
the hour when he is called upon. Congress
man Jett closed the afternoon programme
with n short, crisp address. Jett Is more a
favorite here than ever, and his reception
was almost affectionate. Predictions of 1.000
majority for him 'n Fayetto County were
