against the State Chaiiman.
What does this mean? Are the lobby Senators
going to jump into the camp of the refoimiug Re
publicans? This would be a doubtful kindness iu
view of the silence which Akins and his friends have
kept regarding the reeoul of the nine Republican
State Senators. How will the f.heep be sepaiated
from the goats? The State Chairman is discrediting
much of his eaily spring talk by the lot ing acquisi

The conflict is one lietween rascals and lionet

The .ime lias come, therefore, when the honest i

The Republic can add nothing to the advice it of
ferred when Mayor Wells first advanced his excellent
project for securing a boulevard through the business
district. Good advice, however, 'will bear repeating.
Chestnut street Is not the best route for a boule
vard. Pine street Is evidently better for the public,
and the Transit Company would find no material in
convenience in concentrating tracks ou Chestnut in
stead of Pine. Especially can the Transit Company
afford to give up Pine street if it is to obtain con
cessions in the matter of overhead trolleys.
But overhead trolley concessions should not, for
any consideration, be permitted" to go far enough to
weaken the city's position. It Is a necessary policy
to retain every possible right of control over the plac
ing of trolleys. The underground system will sooner
or later be necessary for public convenience and safe
ty. The municipality cannot afford to tie itself up
At the moment, the street railroad companies can
with some plausibility say that tho poor paving and
still poorer care of St. Louis streets render impracti
cable the use of conduits which would be coustantly
clogged with mud and rubbish. But good administra
tion Is rapidly changing that condition. Before the
World's Fair opens the streets will be fairly well
kept, and In a few years thereafter this city will be
equal to the best in that respect When that time
comes St. Louis should be prepared to enforce all Its
present right of control.
Before the boulevard bill Is made a law these points
should have strict attention.
NOT A STEP BACKWARD.
In the evidence being developed by the hearing of
the Lchmann perjury case in Judge Ryan's court the
fact of wholesale boodling Is made so apparent that
the local community will be aroused to a still sttonger I
demand for municipal purification. j
There is no room for doubting the fact that the city
has for years been at the mercy of a gang of lioodlers '
whose sole purpose was that of illicit profit at the cost
of the community.
Bribery seems to have become so common as to be
expected In every instance where a bribe could be
supposed to influence tho action of a public servant.
i The result is the creation of a condition of mu
nicipal rottenness that would shame St. Louis before
tie world If the remedy had not been applied at the
last elections. Any retrogiession-on the part of the
rfty would constitute weakness criminal in its mean

TOO LATE TO FOOL THE PEOPLE.
These Republicans who count on fooling the oeople
by entering the Congressional campaigns w II. a great
outcry of Republican antagonism to i'ie trusir. thus
seeking to nullify the anti-Republican sentiment cicat
cd by the prevalent intense po'.iul.ir hostility to the
monopoly combines, are making the mistake of re
garding the average citizen as an "easy mark" for a
The people have long ago accuiately sized up the
trust situation. They know that the great combina
tions in restraint of trade arc a menace of the gravest
import to the general good. They hae uen these
organizations cieated and fostered by I!ep"bllciu
policies. In every important political (ainpairn they
find the trusts aligned solidly on the Republican side,
contributing heavy sums to the Republican campaign
slush funds and using all their influence to compel
their emplojes to vote the Republican ticket.
Whenever an issue lias arisen in which the inter
ests of the people were jeopardized by trust arrogance
and greed, the people have learned that ihe Republic
an party exerted its fullest effoits for the advantage
of the trusts. The head of the Republican national
machine, Mark Hanna, has openly espoused tho cause
of the trusts and never fails to serve them to the best
of his ability. He was placed in public life for that
purpose, and his coutiol of Republican policies is in
sisted upon by the trusts supporting nthe Republican
party. All the working machinery of Republicanism
as at present organized is intended to maintain the
supremacy of the trusts as dictating American poli
cies. The American people will not be fooled by Re
publican hypocrisy on the trust issue at this late daj.
The trusts aud the Republican party stand condemned
together by the popular verdict. The final judgment
to be rendered at the polls will be of a nature to re-
tecords in hurrying relief supplies to the scene of suf
fering. The typical "g.iyety of Paris" seems to lie
based on selfishness that amounts to Inhumanity.
