CLARK SCORED THE
Said Their Charge of Democrats
Looting School Fund Was
an Idiotic Lie.
Jonesburg, Mo., Oct. 22. Champ Clark
poke to a crowded house to-night on State
and national Issues and was frequently In
terrupted with applause. Ke hit tho Repub
lican slanderers of Missouri some hard
licks. Ha said that of all the Idiotic lies lis
ever heard tho greatest one was to tho
effect that the Democrats had looted tho
jrablla school fund; that the truth was that
the Democrats found this fund amounting
to $000,000. and Increased It to Jl.ajO.OjO; that
they found It bearing 2i per cent, and had
ao Invested It that it Is now bearing 5 and
C per cent; that It Is now the greatest per
capita echool fund of any State la the
TJnlon: that so far as being enemies to tho
public school system the Democrats ara the
best frtenc'-s It ever had: that the
Constitution requires tho Legislature to
appropriate cne-fourth of the general
revenue for school purposes, but
even successive Democratic Legislatures
had appropriated cne-thlrd of the general
revenue for school purposes that Is, they
appropriated one-twelfth more of the gen
eral revenue for this purpose than Is re
quired by the constitution; that In addition
to this they have Increased the support
of the Normal School and havo augmented
the endowment of the State University by
nearly $1,000,000; that they have paid nearly
twenty millions of the debt saddled on tho
State by the Republicans, and, while doing
this, havo performed the miracle In finance
of cutting, down the tax rate by two-thirds
of what it was under Republican rule; that
the Democratic administration of affairs In
Missouri has been the most successful and
economic in the entire history of the human
race; that a man who cannot defend
the financial history of the Demo
cratic party in Missouri Is
a natural-born fool; that while he was
neither the spiritual nor legal adviser of
liars in general, his advice to them was to
tell lies that are reasonable and that some
body will bellcva and not such monstrous
ones as that the Democratic party had
looted the school funds of Missouri.
11. W. Johnson and J.. F. Ball spoke at
Price's Branch this afternoon to a. geod,
crowd. Senator Johnson spoke principally
on State issues and eulogized the Demo
cratic candidate for Governor and made
come strong points In favor of retaining
the .Democratic party in power la the State.

MARRIED HIS CHUM
OF CHILDHOOD DAYS.
Otto Miller and Mrs, Barcker, After
a Long Separation, Met and
Agreed to .Wed.
A friendship that began twenty jears ago,
when both the parties to It were children,
culminated in a quiet marriage in St. Louis
yesterday. Now the couple, with the two
children of the bride by a former marriage,
aro en route to California on their wedding
Otto IL Miller and Mrs. Elizabeth Barcker
were the principals in tho little romance.
About a score of yearn ago, when Mrs. Mil
ler was little Kllzabeth Collins, they were
frlenes, but rot sweethearts, and after
awhile Elizabeth married N. M. Barcker.
They lived together for five years, and
then, after two children had been born, sep
arated. Later, the wife got a divorce.
Meantime, Mr. Miller had become con
nected with various business enterprises
which took him on long Journeys. He had
traveled all over the United States and
".net or i.uroDe. ana nad accumulated a
handsome fortune. Some time after tho
separation of Mr. and Mrs. Barcker he
heard the ntory of his former friend's
troubles and It Impressed him. Not long
afterwards ho wroto to her.
After that tho course was clear, end soon
the friendship of former years had devel
oped into ardent love. Mr. Miller visited St,
Louis frequently and always called nt the
home of Mrs. Barcker. who was living
with her mother, Mrs. Mary Collins, at No.
21C North Thirteenth street.
Few of either Mr. Miller's or Mrs.
Rarcker's friends know of the closeness of
their friendship, and fewer still know they
were married yesterday. They went about
it very quietly. Mrs. Barcker told her
mother and sister a few days ago that Mr.
Miller was to be here Saturday, and that
they would probably be married Mondav.
Mr. Miller arrived Saturday evening. Yes
terday morning he and Mrs. Barcker left
Mrst Collins's house, saying they were to be
quietly married. Later la the day they re
turned, saying they had been married. Who
performed the ceremony Is a matter that
the family did not ask about.
There was a Uttle wedding supper, and
then the newly married couple and the
bride's children took a train for their tour
of the Coast. It Is probable that they
will also visit Europe before they settle
down. Mr. Miller claims St. James. Mo.,
as his residence, but is connected with a
paint and oil house In the East.

vertised to speak In Paris, en which occa

uncertain Democrat, who, while professing
to differ with his rarty on but ens ques

CUBA'S IMPROVED CONDITION.
General Wood's Annual Report
Contains Interesting Statements.
Washington, Oct. 22. 'The condition of
the people of the island, to the best of my
knowledge and belief, is one of content and
they realize that wonderful progress has
been made and toey feel, as a people, klnjiy
toward the people of the United States and
havo faith in them."
This statement is made by Major General
Leonard Wood, uommandlr.s the DHIslon of
Cuba. In an extract of his annual civil re
port relative to the administration of tho
Island of Cuba, made public by tho War
General Wood's report is a statement
showing what a rcmarkablo advance lias
been made by Cuba during tho past year.
Hospitals have been established in every
important town; asylums havo ben provid
ed for orphan children; 2.UM schools havo
been established; Z.&W teachers, most of
whom receive higher wages than teachers
of corresponding grades in the United States,
aro employed; and there aro 15O.W0 scholars,
whereas, under i-panish administration,
there were not more than Zi.WJ children
In addition, tlia sanitation of tho towns
ana cine r.as iieen lmmrasurnmy improveu,
and, as an Indication of the satlsiactory
conditions existing. General Wood calls at
tention to the fact that tho two southern
Provinces for tho nrst timo aro free from
yellow fever, and in general there hua been
a great Improvement In health throjghout
the Island. ;
He believes that In a few years yellow
fever can be gotten under tho samo control
as now exists In Jamaica. Seven hundred
miles of railroad have been constructed,
bridges hate been rebuilt, streets paved
and millions of dollars have been spent on
public works, yet there Is a surplus of $1.
LOMjiQ in the Cuban Treasury.
General Wood makes a special point of
tho fact that hunger in the island is now
unknown. He says no disorders marked
either the municipal election or the consti
tutional election, and Epcaklng to-day he
said he has no reason to believe that any
attempt would be made to Induce the Con
stitutional Convention to adopt a resolution
demanding tho withdrawal of tho United
States from the island. (

Mr. Alschuler then explained tho deficit
under tJoiernor Altgc.d. the true reason lor
which was charged to liio Republican Legis
lature of liyj.
Ho also addressed a magnificent meeting
at Hoerber's Hall on Bluu Island avenue.
Cook County Is a sort of pandora's box as
regards politics. Neither Democrats nor Re
publicans havo been able to obtain a key
that will unlock the secrets of tho voters'
minds. Democrats claim the county by ii.
.iO to SO.Ow. and confess that they are bas
ing their claims and hopes on what a cl?
tain 4u per cent of the total ote will do un
tho day of election.
"Our precinct workers, who have made
polls of tho city." taid a well-known Demo
cratlo leader to me to-day, "hao been un

ment that they 'didn't know how they

almost to a man will vote the Democratic

of the Republican bosses four years ago
on their employs, I think It a lair pre
sumption. Here are lftV'-O voters marked
doubtful en our poll t!st, and they can
swing Cook County cither way by a tre
Nor am the Republicans In nny better
position to make claims. They make a bluff
that they will carry the county, but are not
rxtraiagant In fixing their majority. They
do not fix a majority at all.

as large a majority ns ho had four years

Democratic Prospects Bright.
Republicans probably have a better poU of
the city than the Democrats, for they fix
the number of doubtful voters at about 23
per cent, or lOO.OOOi Evidently they derivo
small consolation from their figures, or thT
would claim a few thousand majority. Just
for arpearance sake. On the whole tho
Democrats havo tho best of tha slgna. There
Isn't much Interest on the surface In tho
result. Hardly one man out of 200 jou meet
on the street wears a campaign button, and
Bryan portraits are as plentiful ns thoso
of McKinley. Few residences and business
houses havo lithographs of the presidential
or gubernatorial candidates. Tho saloons
are plastered with them, und seem to bo
about equally divided as between Yatps
and Aschuler. In tho German districts Al
schuler leads Yates in all branches of busi
ness bv at least two to one.
The Republicans are concentrating their
efforts to sae Congressman Lorlmer from
defeat, and there is some grumbling among
the county and legislative candidates on

vandevillo attachments, with a circus band
and all that. Ho holds the peoplo In this
way to the end of his discourses, promising
a grand freo concert after tho regular per
formance. Democrats express tha greatest
confidence that Lorlmer and Boutell vill be
defeated. Thoy claim that the Cook County
Congressional delegation will stand fivo
Damoorats to two Republicans. I am strong
ly of the opinion that tho Democratic claims
of U majority or more for Alschuler in
Cook County will be realized. This would
carry the Stato by a handsome margin,
for the rural districts ennnot muster 11 a
Jorllies for Yates that will exceed r..CP0, and
maybe not that much. On the whole, tho
chances for the Democrats electing Al
schuler aro brightening every day.
As an Illustration of Republican methods
a riotous scene In the lumber district vas
furnished last Saturday, when tho foremen
of nil tho gangs marshaled the laborers to
gether, and marched them to a rtand
whero a Republican spellbinder was shout
ing prosperity und the full dinner pall. Oc
casional shouts for "Bryan" were mot with
a blow from tho fist of men there for that
purpose. When tha laborers tried to leave
and go home, they discovered that they
were surrounded by their foremen, who
warned them to remain or suffer the eon
sequences. The threat of "consequences'"
meant a loss of their Job. But they per
slted in their cries for Bryan, and fnally
there was a general mix-up between the
two forces the meeting was dhbanJed and
a riot call brjught half a dozen wagon
loads of policemen, who rescued the labor
ing men from their predicament.
This is merely ru tvidenco that the men
will not permit themselves to be bulldn-ed
again this vcar. as they wero four years
ago. Tho Republican National Committee
has a clutch on the necks of th lumber
men of Chicago, through the Lurabr Trut.
