"PULLING THE WAGOX."
Congressman Richardson's arraignment of the Re
publican party as being responsible for the trust evil,
the creation of the high protective tariff, is so plainly
based on tile truth now distinctly perceived by the
'American people as lo stand valid against all attacks
from the party of the tariff and the trusts.
In answer to this arraignment. Congressman Can
non retorted that, speaking for himself, he was ready
to go to the country on the record of the Republican
party. He caused much merriment on the Republican
side of the House, Ave are told, by describing the Re
publican party as pulling the wagon, while the Dem
ocrats stood off and found fault.
Others than Democrats, however, are standing off
and finding fault with the way the dominant protec
tionist element in the Republican party Is now "pull
ing the wagon." There is a large and Increasing Re
publican contingent which is vigorously demanding
tariff revision. Republicans in the Middle West and
Northwest are In favor of this action, not in the least
dismayed that they are denounced as "tariff tlnkerers"
by. Republican protectionist organs. A strong pressure
for tariff revision is being brought to bear on the
national Republican organization. The fact that thus
far the protectionist clique has prevailed to nulliry
this pressure is a fact of menace, not of good prom
ise, to the Republican party.
When 3Ir. Cannon's party "goes to the country"
orT-the Issui of the trusts and the tariff it will go to
defeat. The American people are not at all satisfied
with the way in which the Republican party has been
"pulling the wagon" of late years. They bee that the
trusts occupy the wagon, that the people are being
run over and badly hurt, that the Republican party In
the traces Is driven by the trusts, that It obeys every
movement of the reins In trust hands, that the trust
whip Is potent to compel party action whenever neces
sary. The American people arc wearied of these con
ditions 'and fearful for the future If the power of the
trusts is not broken. They propose to shatter this
power by removing the Republican party from control
of the Government and installing in Its place a De
mocracy pledged to tariff revision and antitrust action.
THE SAD CASE OF MR. HAXXA.
.There Js increasing reason Jo believe that Senator
Unnna will continue to be greatly "embarrassed" by
the fervid action of supporters who perbist, despite
Mr. Hanna's blushing protests, iu booming him for
the Republican presidential nomination in 1901.
The 'Republicans of the Ninth Congressional Dis
trict of Tennessee are the latest re-enforcements to the
ranks of the Hanna boomers, who are believed to be
directed by an effective Hanna organization in 'Wash
ington, la their Congressional Convention the other
day the Tennessee friends of Hanna routed the Roose
" telt forces, horse, foot nnd dragoons, and virtually
rSjscd the Hanna standard1 for 1001.
Bjlere Is the resolution which theTennessceans
aoSpted, first overcoming the most strenuous opposi
tion on the part of Mr. Roosevelt's friends In the cou
vfbtion: "We do not, and will not, forget that great
leader of leaders and Republican of Republicans, M.
AyHanna'of Ohio, and whenever or wherever the Re
publicans of this section canrcpay him and their coun
try for his" unparalleled and incalculable service to his
country .and party, we stand pledged .and ready to
Goodness don't you know poor Mr. Hanna must
hjive been awfully worried wnoa lie Heard of tuis ac- '.Xalthful, conscientious, capable and painstaking. If
tfon by his Tennessee friends? Just to think that ! elected he will undoubtedly give satisfaction to the
ifcey should insist upon booming him for the presl-1 people of Illinois Irl the office with which they will
dency against his wishes and without his knowledge of
their Intention for, of course, this must have been
the case. We should all pity poor Mr. Hanna. He Is.
apparently, even unable to keep that strong Hauua
organization iu Washington from instigating and
guiding such demonstrations as this in Tennest.ee the
other day. Isn't it too sad about poor Mr. Hanna?
ZIEGENHEINISM OVER AGAIN.
Only one c-ouclitslon can be drawn from the result
of the Republican primaries in this city. The old
Ziegenhein gang is still the dominant force In local
Republicanism. The party is unable to divorce Itself
from the practices and the strength of this Influence.
The conduct of the primaries is fruitful In lesions
to the Miidcnt of municipal politics. In view of the
talk about election laws, the practical exhibition of
internal corruption should convince the leaders of that
party In St. Louis and the State that no legislation
can compel purity where the evil is deeply rooted iu
No objection can be urged against the present
primary law. Republicans have exptessed their
satisfaction with the measure. Every provision
guards the Interests of the voter and the contestant.
What occurred iu Thursday's primary? In one
ward the judges and clerks are alleged to have sold
out to the opposing faction. In another. It Is charged.
no men who were not Republicans were permitted to
vote by the election oflleiaR each faction hoping to
reap the profit. Iu several precincts ballots were
taken out of the boxes in closely folded bunches, thus
giving prima facie evidence of fraud. In some wards
the number of ballots cast exceeded the number of
those who voted by forty and fifty. In one precinct
the poll was not opened because a Judge of election
lefuscd to comply with the plain provision of the law.
Of course, these frauds will be brought before the
State Convention in Jefferson City. Whatever the
decision there, the fact remains that the old Republic
an politicians the so-called "live" ones are in control
of the St. Louis situation. Ziegenheinlsm Is neither
dead nor dying. The adoption of this cult by Na
tional Committeeman Kerens and the carrying of six
out of seven contested wards by his friends Is evi
dence of the exact status of affairs In St. Louis Re
I'ntil the reformers among the Republicans of this
city can clean the corruption out of their own or
ganization they are morally estopped from preaching
false doctrine about the general election law most
of which law was framed by the Republican House
of ISO.". It Is a task which should call out all the
latent energies of the better element among the Re
PRESIDENT RO.OSEVELT'S SEPTEMBER VISIT.
When President Roosevelt becomes the honored
guest of St. Louis next September, as is now arranged
through the commendable action of the Business
Men's League, he will receive a hospitable welcome
from Republicans and Democrats alike.
This certainty Is due both to the dignity of the
Presidential office and to the high regard in which
Mr. Roosevelt is held by all the people.
It will be easy to make the President feel that he
is in the house of his friends, because that will be the
truth of the situation. The average American classes
Mr. Roosevelt as a most admirable type of the Ameri
can, and is proud of him accordingly.
The Business Men's League Is doing well to elimi
nate all traces of partisanship from the developments
attendant upon Mr. Roosevelt's contemplated visit.
The President will be welcomed to St. Louis regard
less of party. As the Presidept of the United States
and as Theodore Roosevelt he will appeal to all St.
Louisans with most potent magnetism.
A REPUBLICAN HANDICAP.
The suggestion of a country Republican that the
coming State convention adopt a resolution icquestlng
the President to appoint Postmasters upon the recom
mendation of a majority of connty committeemen will
hardly secure the approbation of the delegates In Jef
ferson City next Tuesday.
This unsophisticated Republican Imagines that If
such a resolution were passed, the party could attend
to matters of more Importance. He confesses that
heretofore the leaders have had their hands full at
tending to the dispensation of patronage. It has split
the party Into factions and resulted In the successive
elimination of bosses who have thought themselves
capable of attending to the vexing problem.
There are few who will deny these statements.
However, any member of the party who Imagines that
the politicians In charge of the party at this time
hope to carry the State Is sadly misinformed. Patron
age is the sole end of Republican organization In Mis
souri. Every four years the pilgrimages to Washing
ton begin and do not end until the last piece of Fed
eral pie is distributed.
There was a time when the Republicans had entire
control of the three largo cities in the State. Eacli of
them has been lost because of the municipal misman
agement which followed Republican rule. This has
released a horde of political henchmen whose only
object in identifying themselves with the party or
ganization Is to secure some appointive office. The
most recent example of this Republican hunger was
when fifty-live men applied for appointment as Elec
tion Commissioner in this city.
Necessarily, the politicians want a one-man power.
With county organizations making all the recommen
dations for appointments, there would be little reason
in the National Committeeman and the State Chair
man fighting for dear life. They have worked the
Fystem down to such a flue point that they dictate
what the county committees shall do.
As long as. patronage remains the chief aim of the
Republican politician, there will be the same Indiffer
ence to public duty by the minority members of the
General Assembly. Their reward Is not expected at
the hands of the people, but from the Piesldent In
Washington. It is a deplorable condition for any
party. It will take a revolution of principles nnd men
before any permanent reform can occur In the organ
ization. It cauuot be done by resolution of a State

THE ILLINOIS STATE TICKET.
Illinois Democrats will be Justified In supporting
with enthusiasm the ticket nominated in the Demo
cratic State Convention which assembled In Spring
field last Tuesday. The worthiness of the men
placed on the party ticket makes a strong appeal to
the voters of the State,
The Republic takes this occasion to say n few
words concerning the nomination of Mr. John L.
Pickering, Its Illinois staff correspondent, for the of
fice of Clerk of the Supreme Court. The paper, re
grets that one of Its working staff has accepted polit
ical preferment. Hnd The Republic been consulted,
the choice of Mr. Pickering would have been dis
couraged. This Is because of a conviction that-uews-paper
men should not be candidates for political of
fice, and also, frankly, because The Republic regrets
to be deprived of Mr. Pickering's valuable services.
Nevertheless, It may also be said with propriety
that Mr.' rickerlng Is a 'strong and capable man and
eminently worthy of the support of Illinois voters.
For ten years he has represented The Republic In Ids
State with entire satisfaction to this paper, He Is
have honored him. The Republic hopes to see him
thus honored, and takes satisfaction in the present
prospect or the success of the entire ticket at .the
WORK FOR THE CONVENTION.
Must the Republican State Convention carry out
the lobby programme? The positive announcement
to this effect by the. leaders of the Kerens faction
after a conference lasting several hours Is a com
mand which the delegates to Jefferson City next Tues
day will hardly dare to disobey.
The late developments In the Republican organiza
tion are Iu line with others which have occurred dur
ing the past month. May '' a confeience was held
iu the offices of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, where it
was agreed hyAColoiiol Bill Phelps and a half-dozen
bosses that the State Convention Minuld leave the
nomination ot the United States Senator to the Re
publican members of the General Assembly.
Th'is "agreement" was made under the personal
supervision of Colonel Phelps. He lias always been
able to control absolutely the minority. A nomina
tion by the legislators means nothing other than the
naming ot National Committeeman Kerens against
As might have been foreseen, the publication of
this determination of the Republican bosses nvoused
the wrath of the better eh-ment in the p-irty. The
numerous confeienccs and protests which have ic
sulted from the Phelps-Kerens deal were an expres
sion ot the popular disgust against the mapping out
of the convention's programme by a few manipula
tors. It cannot be said that these protests have come
from the politicians. They are simply the expres
sion of a sentiment by men who have always held
optimistic views regarding Republican possibilities in
Missouri. The "practical" ones those who have no
scruples about serving the lobby are aligned under
the banner of Colonel Kerens.
Therefore they wish to carry out the programme
which was made iu the otlice of the Missouri Pacific.
It Is particularly fitting that the conference of Poat
mastets and Federal appointees which was bold
Thursday should renew allegiance to the party au
thority, which in this case .seems to be the lobby.
As the case now stands, there is only one thing
which can convince the people that the Republican
party is not pledged body and soul to the lobby.
Only by the nomination of a man whoe character
and affiliations are such that no possible connection
between 1dm and the Phelps-Kerens deal can be
traced will the party stand unconvicted before the
voters of Missouri. The politicians have said that
such a step shall not bo taken. Heretofore they
have been able to execute their plans. Are they able
to do so this jear?
Strange to say, the Piesldent will have the oppor
tunity of signing at least one measure fulfilling a
promise In the Republican platform. The passage of
the bill providing for the reclamation of arid lands a
proposition to which both parties weie pledged only
serves to emphasize the failure of the party to redeem
any other pledges. Reciprocity for Cuba, establish
ment of a Department of Commerce, an Isthmian
canal, and other things deemed necessary by the Re
publicans in convention, are all on the shelf.
To the unprejudiced outsider the alleged harmony
of the Republican national organization just now is
the most remarkable brand of harmony on record.
No Democrat objects to it. however, as a Republican
specimen of harmony. If It can only be maintained
throughout the campaigns of 1P02 and lfXM a triumph
ant Democracy is doubly assuicd.
Will the Globe-Democrat as.seit distinctly that
Missouri Pacific bonds to the amount of $1,018,000 or
to any other amount have been lust or stolen duriug

To be entirely frank, we think that there were certain
"lessons" which the President neided to be t lught In
this Cuban affair One cf them was thit he lnd entlrely
underestlmated the cohesive power of the pro'.eotlcn'st
system ot public plunder. He asrtl In hi oft-hand
way that a reduction In the duties on Cuban products
had nothlnc to do with tariff revision. He thoJght he
could throw cold water jii all other reciprocity treatlis.
and still obtain Cuban reciprocity. That was the great
mistake of his annual message to Congress It was but
a Jaunty view of the situation which he then tool:. He
should be wiser now. He has been tnusht that a pro
tective tariff Is cn'.y a system of balancing one self! h in
terest against an-lher; that each on" thinks it has a
ve3ted right to Its own share cf the spoil; and that It
will rage like a bear robbed of ;tn whelp, against all the
others If they dare to touch the part of the law written
for Its heneflt. To talk of "honor" to men with such an
Idea cf their protectlontrt booty well in hand. n. to usi
to them an unknown I mguag". This Is a truth which, we
may presume, the President has now learned In the dear
school of experience.

A Forelen View of St. I.onla.
From the Bllfaft WW.
St. Louis does not possess the old-world
charm cf New Orleans, nor can It as yet
rival the vast bulk and bewllderins growth
of Chicago; but, lying In the heart of the
Continent, It Is the commercial center of
the Mississippi Valley, and. more Important
still. It Is the northern gateway to that
wonderful Southwest whose development Is
Just now the most extraordinary feature cf
an extraordinary country. The Mississippi
has lost its importance as a commercial
highway, and the St. Louis river front Is
no longer blocked by three or four miles of
steamers as in the cl.I days, "before the
war"; but the city has In the long run
gained rather than lost, for It Is now the
greatest railway center in the Continent,
the focus of a mighty network of lines
spre.-nling from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
and from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of
Mexico. Nor have we heard the last word
on Inland water carriage, fcr when the
Improvements In the Mississippi are com
pleted St. Louis will become virtually a
sp&norf nnd from St Tjinls north tn Chi
cago a navigable canal 1 projected that I
will open up to it the Immense commerce
of the lakes.
It Is little wonder that the citizens of St.
Iouls. once regarded as pj senate and easy
going, now dream at no vcr distant day
of challenging Chicago itself for the su
premacy of the West, and hae de
termined that the World's Fair of 1M1
chall beat nil records. The old French
town ot 13,000 has already grown to over
half a million, and he would be a rash
man who would set limits to Its expansion.
Independent of mere bigness, too. It pos

lest, can neer be anything but a vast r
clalmsd swamp covered with more or less
ugly houses. St. Louis has a natural dig

The growth of the great West, as typified
by cities like St. IjjuK has as yet been
but faintly realized on this aide of the At

the Mississippi Valley and southwestwards
to Texas and Mexico there Is growing up
an America, of which Hurope has HttU
conception. States like Missouri and Tex

Washington, June 2). With r.- prospect of
Cuban legislation and with every Indication
that the canal bill -will be finally disposed
of before the last ot next week, the leaders
of the Senate nnd House are now certain of
adjournment no later than July 2, the date
decided on two weeks nso.
Representative Cannon, chairman of the
Committee on Appropriations in the House,
in reply to a question as to when Congress
would adjourn, statel cm the floor to-day
that with appropriaflon bills so well ad
vanced adjournment could be had before
the Fourth cf July.
The differences between the two houses
on the more Important measures are now
In a fair way of adjustment, and nothing
promises delay, with the possible exception
of the Philippine Government bill,, which
the House will pass next Thursday. This
bill differs in several Important featutes
from the measure which parsed the Senate,
and the two houses are so pronounced in
their Iews that It may take nearly a week
to get together on common ground.
Senators Aldrlch and Hale, however, said
to-night that the Conference Committee on
the Philippine Government bill undoubtedly
would be able to agree, so that adjournment
could be taken by July 3.
