Club's downtown headquarters In the Carle
Mr. Herry Is now and has long been a Re
publican. He declared yesterday his deter
mination to vote the Dcmocartic ticket, and
gae the reasons therefor. Short addresses
were also made by James I.. Hornby, Dem
ocratic candidate for President of the City
Council, nnd J. C. Shaner. Mr. Berry -aid:
"I do not come before you as n Republic
an, or a Democrat, or ns a disgruntled office-holder;
nor am I seeking any political
olllco or appointment. I have no favors
to ask, and do not e.pect to receive any,
but I come before you as a citizen and tax
payer who has the interests of the city
alone at heart. I do not believe in inde
pendent parties. I do believe In an inde
pendent voter, especially In municipal elec
tions. I claim that I am no les. a Repub
lican because 1 feel that the best interests
of our city will be s-erved by the election of a
Democratic Major and a Democratic Coun
cil, and I hold myself free to praise or con
demn either party or the actions of either
party or party machine. I am supporting
the Democratic ticket, first, because tho
Democratic party so far has kept its prom
ises, and because the Republican municipal
party or this city has violated in letter,
spirit and deed, tho promise it made the
citizens of this city when It went into office
four years ago, and I refer you to its plat
form to vindicate my assertion.
Record of Broken Promises.
"Members of the Democratic Central
Commltteo promised the city voters to
nominate a good, clean ticket of capable
and efficient men. This they hae done.
They promised to hold an early convention.
This they have done. This early conven
tion is the first recognition the independent
voters have received from a politcal party
for years, and is a move toward good gov
ernment and a movement which thir Repub
lican party has steadily refused to make.
It is a precedent which will be insisted upon
and demanded In tho future. Bveiy politi
cian knows that no political party will put
up a weak or a macline ticket two months
before an election, -nlth any hopes of Jts
"So far, then, tho Democrats have kept
their promises, and Just so long as they
continuo to keep the promises which they
make the public. Just so' long will they be
entitled to the support of the independent
"Now I have accused tho Republican mu
nicipal party of this city of not keeping
lti pledges. Lst us sco if the records will
sustain me. The Republican platform of 1697
contains this sentence: 'We further earnest
ly recommend to our city officials the merit
system of cur city emplojes for their con
sideration.' "Was this promise kept? No! Not only
did the Council (eIx memoers of which were
elected on that promise), refuse to consider
such an amendment, but refused to even
allow the people who had elected them on
tins piatiorm to vote on it. ahu i cwim
that the very men who 'denied the people
the right to vote on this measure are tho
men who are now working for their lives to
perpetuate tho Republican machine, and
who are promised the offices if Mr. Parker
"Then I find this clause In their platform:
"We believe that no franchises should be
granted by the city without securing to the
city a full and adequate return, and only
on such conditions as will furnish to the
citizens ample protection for their rights.
Reminder of Xorth and Sontta Bill.
"I bog to refresh your memory on this
measure, and ask If the Republican party
has kept Its promise. A measure was in
troduced into the Republican Council,
known as the North and South bill, and the
Central Traction bill, which gavo away 12J
miles of our public streets without adequate
return, against the protests of the better
element of the Council, and the protests of
the public press, as well as the protest of
an outraged public.
"And I say to-day that the men who
passed this bill aro to-day potent factors in
tho election of the present Repub'.iran ticket.
uneir innuence ana tneir support is re
quired to elect. If possible, the Republican
"I could go on enumerating these abuso3
and how promise after promise bad been
broken, and I claim that the men who have
made the recent administration a disgrace
have so woven themselves and their Influ
ence Into every department of our municipal
government, and are so close'y knit into the
Republican machine politics, so engrafted
Into the very filler of the party now trying
to elect Mr. Parker for Mayor, that the
party must be eliminated from our City
Hall beforo confidence can bo restored or
any genuine reform Instituted."
MAYOR TALKS OP "MY TICKCT."
ZIcBcnUeln Say He Feels Good Over
In a conversation Saturday morning. In
which he referred to the Parker ticket ns
"my ticket," a short while later designat
ing it as "our ticket," Mayor Zlcgenheln
said his "boys'' are out working hard for
Parker, and that tbey bring in the news
that "Parker and my whole ticket will be
Zlegenheln was'feeling good over It, but
he was not In hlB usual talkative mood.
Not until the Reverend Doctor Boyd's namo
was mentioned by one of the bystanders in
the Major's office did he wax up to his
customary warmth, although he persisted
In praising Parker and asserting that tho
"boys" give assurance of Parker's success.
"Doctor Boyd!" ex:la!mcd Zlegenheln.
"He's a thoroughbred, he Is. That fellow's
all right. Yos, Boyd knows a few things
about politics. Lot mo tell you! He's been
pretty much In politics In St. Louis for
about fifteen years. Boyd isn't behind at
all; he's a thoroughbred, Boyd is."
The Mayor smiled all to himself, as If he
had recalled something about the ihorough
bred. "Pretty good friend of Parker?" he con
tinued, catching up a question. "ies-, Boyd's
pretty close to Parker. They're very good
friends. This man Parker's ail right Park
er and my whole ticket will win easily.
Wells is no good; nobody wants him for
Mayor. He'll be as dead as Filley after
the election. I have lota of boys on my
staff, and they come In and tell me thnt
Parker's going to get there easy. Parker
and our wholo ticket Is safe."
Following another question, he said:
"Don't you believe I'm eliminated. Some
people may think I am. That's all right,
though; they can think that way if they
E lease. They can't eliminate me. No, sir!

In Parker's interestrls that what they call
being eliminated? I can get all the votes I
want In this city. People will turn out to
hear me any dar.
"The Parker platform contains a repudia
tion or my administration? That's folly.
The platform couldn't repudiate my admin
istration, because there's nothing to re
pudiate. I've given St. Louis .T"od covern-
ment during my term in office. Nobody can
say anytning against me. Oh, no; the plat
form won't repudiate my administration.
It can't, you know; there's nothing to re

"I thought a. house had fallen on me
when I was struck," said Gorman yester

cther my thigh and another cut a furrow
across my stomach. Colonel LIscum, who
was a few feet abend cf me, came hack and
asked: "Ale you badly hurt, old man? Ob
serving I was injured, he grabbed up the
flag and started forward on the run, order
ing two men to carry me to cover.
"I taw LIscum fall Just as the men picked
me up. While we were going toward shel

other shot in the head.
"All day long I lay out In the hot sun
beside Major Regan, and at night they took
us both off the field."
Sergeant Gorman has a certificate of

which lone life Is to be obtained. Is food and
the Etomach. Long life and good health are
not possible unless the stomach does Its work
properly. There Is a way to make it. if It does
not. IIostetters Stomach Bitters Is sn Ideal
strength restorer. It possesses valuable cura
tive properties, and has always brought relief,
even In the most desperate' cases of Indiges

belching, constipation. Insomnia, nervousness,
biliousness, sluggish liver, weak kidneys, or any
aliment resulting from a delicate stomach,
try the Hitters. Everybody should "try It at
