THE REPUBLIC: SUNDAY. OCTOBER 14. 1000.
HOPES TO CAPTURE
Is the Place to Save Money by Spending It
The difference in prices from those asked else
where will make a tidy little "nest egg" to put
away. Values were Never Better nor Prices
Lower than now.
Reason for Kereus'.s Willingness lo
Spend the Republican Tally's
Gash in Missouri.
INDIFFERENT ABOUT FLORY.
2Cniion.il Committeeman Ignores
State Ticket ft His Desire to
IJecome Senator Fight in
The telegram from New York In eftor
ojy's Republic, announcing that a big bun
dle of campaign cash liail born started for
Missouri, is not surprising to local poli
ticians, vi ho have watched the trend uf
Preparations have been made by National
Committeeman Kerens to make a desperate
effort to capture the Logi-'alure. Thl lias
been done outside of the Republican sttate
Committee, which is fighting Its own bat
tles. Kerens is Interested In curring the I.eg
Islaturc rather than the State. Local Re
publicans have openly acknowledged that
Kerens himself docs not care a whit which
way the gubernatorial contest goes. If Klory
should be elected they claim that Kerens
would lose his grip on the party in Mis
souri In two years, and for till- te.ison lie
Is not especially interested In the State
The Republican State Committee, acting
on that supposition, ha raised an inde
Jicndcnt fund. It i said that this fund now
represents quite a considerable miiu, but
It will not compare to the large slice of
campaign money that will pour into the
Stale from tho coffers of the Republican
National Committee. This fund will be un
der the personal supervision of Kerens, who
expects to have it put out through the va
rious Federal officeholders of the State who
owe their appointment to his influence.
Through these sources the State will be
divided into various districts, and where
Kerens can trust his followtrs the money
w-ill turned loose in quantities which he
thinks necessary to accomplish hlj pur
poses. Kerens lias been ambitious for years
to become a United States Senator. He
has had the power had the Republicans
been in control of both houses of the leg
islature. That he still has this ambition
toes without question.
In some counties, where the vote has been
close, enough money will be released to
try to make a showing. There are at leat
lifteen counties upon which the Republicans
have set their eyes, and in these counties
the Republican boodle probably win make
Itself felt the most on the election for Rep
resentatives. These, counties, with their
majorities ror the Democratic candidates
two years ago. are as follows:
Bates. 6S0; Bollinger. H2; Buchanan (Sec
ond District). SO: Butler. 137; Carroll, SI;
Cedar, 73; Clark, 17; Cooper. 46; Dayiesw. 10;
Jackson (Sixth District), 47; Jasper (East
ern District), IS; Lawrence, S3; Morgan ;
These counties, with what the Republicans
carried two years ago, would give them con
publican, showed the same net gain by
trol of the lower body. The Senate, if the
Republicans showed the same net gain by
reason of the boodle campaign, would also
be captured by them with the holdover

IlEPlllLICAX CLUB OX TOBOGGAN.
"Opposition" Outnumbers Silks la Or
ganisation and Inactllty Results.
The St, I-oul3 Republican Club Is on the
toboggan slide, which ends In oblivion. The
weekly meetings seem, to have been dis
Shortly after the organization of the St.
Ixmls Republican Club members of the
Merchants' League Club began to hand In
applications for membership in the new
organization. Inasmuch as the St. Louts
Republican Club was denominated the "silk
stocking" organization its members thought
ft was a. general desire on the part of the
local Republicans to nfliiate with a club
that had an aristocratic personnel. With
this they admitted members right -and left.
Meetings were held weekly, and. although
they were not attended as well as was ex
pected, the officers of the club were grati
fied at the growth.
Suddenly it dawned upon them that all
was not right, but before they knew what
really was tho matter the majority of the
members proved to be members of the rival
organization. When George D. Kevnolds
and Charles Nagel a short while ago Joined
the rival club things began to look dark
nround the headquarters of the St Lout
Republican Club. Their members refused
to come out.
To heighten the Ineffectiveness of the
silks" organization, at a distribution of
tickets to the Roosevelt meeting, the allot
ment to the SU Louis Republican Cluh was
so small that it was not worth noticing.
All this has had a dampening effect on It
but the climax was capped when the Re
publican City Committee, at its meeting
yesterday, in giving out the list of places
at. which meetings- will be held, ignored the
1'sllks" club. As a result the club will have
to conduct an Independent campaign or go
out of business. An officer of the Merchant-'
league Club declared veiterdav
Jhat the meetings hereafter would be held
lii the various wards and that the Central
Committee did not propose to take cogniz
ance of the St Louis Republican Club at
i nonitowixo democrats names.
"iannd Money ClnV Determined to
Have Full Roster.
A letter received yesterday by Chairman
Jump of the National Committee of Com
mercial Travelers, from a commercial trav
eler living In Cassvillc. Mo., and traveling
out ot Springfield, Mo., throws some light
on. tho methods adopted by the promoters
of the Republican "Trai-ellng Men's Sound
Money cluh" of this city to swell the mem
bership of that organization. The letter
irom Mr. Jump's correspondent inclosed a
circular letter signed by Secretary Roberts
of tho Republican State Committee, inform
ing the recipient that he had already been
enrolled as a member of the Traveling
Mens Sound Money Club and asking him
to circulate the petition In his community
ana drum up other names for the club's
This particular traveler happens to be a
Democrat, and one of the most enthusiastic
fn" raen in the State, and he was wroth
think his name had been emblazoned on
the rolls of a Republican organization with
out his sanction or knowledge. In his Iet
n to Chairman Jump he says:
"I do not blame these Republican man
agers for trying to manufacture sentiment

with nadded rolls' of membership In their
