FREE PASSES FOR
Republicans Favored at Staie I'm-
versiiy Deinonats Demand ami
Obtain Like Concession's.
Some one with his pockets full of railroid
p isses for Republicans only created a stir
arrong tho students of the State t'ntverslty
at Columbia, Mo, yesterday, which might
hue cost the Democratic ticket a number
ot votes but for the prompt and deci'lie
aitlon of Chairman James M Selberl of the
Democratic Slate Committee.
Shortly before noon Chairman Selberl re-
cehed word by telephone of tlie distribution
of pisses from a Democratic student at the
university. As all the railroads In the State
agreed not to issue passes to any voter, the
chairman started in Investigation, with the
view of ascertaining where the "leak" was.
Lni al oltlelnls of all the roads denied that
p.i'ses were being distributed anywhere, but
started investigitlons on their own account.
Within a few hours it was learned tint
forty pisses to various points on the M IC.
& T. lines had been given away at Columbia
and twenty-eight passes 01 er the Wabash.
Mr. Seibert obtained a complete list of tho
passes, the names of the students and their
destinations This list was laid before of
ficials of the roids mentioned, and they
piomptly agreed to Issue the same number
of passts to Democratic students.
They also assured Mr. Seibert that the
Issuance of the passes was not authorized
and that no more would be giien out.
1'p to late last night the Identity of the
distributor of the passes had not been as
certained Dlcnsslinr the nutter. Chairman Seibert
"aid: "I am positive that none of the prom
inent officials of either of the roads Is to
blitne. Our agreement with them was that
voters of both parties should be glien half
fire rates for the ibctlon and that no one
should recelie gieater courtesy.
"I know these otlicluls to be high-toned
gentlemen. How the passes got out Is a
question I am Inclined to think that somo
minor otllclil who was Intrusted with books
of pisses for railroad men let his political
znl get awaj- with his Judgment. If he is
found out. 1 hale no doubt he will pay a
fceiero peinlty for Ills generosity.
"Pleaue s.iy foi me that all of the rail
roads haie d-alt perfectly fairly with us
and that I am confident that no one in au
thority was cognizant of the Issuance of
these passes for the use to which they wore
