He gave full credit for other men who

from his set speech to do so. "I cannot

the sure foundation upon which the cause
of Mr. Folk was built. 'The people know
and recognise evil." he ahl. They will
not allow other questions to be mixed with

now before the Democrat of Missouri:
there Is one man who embodies the so

He then presented Congressman Cochran,
who presided. He said:
"When a Republic permits its functions
to be usurped by corrupters of ofRcfol life
then It 1 worse than a monarchy. The
Mlectkm of officers b the most important
function of citizenship. Campaign contri

committees is an evil not to be cusdoned.

TRAIN'S BROUGHT THOUSANDS.
During the morning and until the mid
dlo of the afternoon, incoming trains
brought visitors. The railroads, according
to tho men In charge or the St. Joseph
Folk Club, did not gtvc advantageous rates
or arrange for special trains. Despite this
discouragement. St. Joseph, a city of more
than 149.0) inhabitants, was appreciably
Increased by the influx or rural visitors.
As one lyiy or Democrats marched into

Maryville train. Speaker Whltecotton of
Paris, who was sitting In the corridor of
the Mctropole. remarked to his friends:

Owing; to a misunderstanding, the com
mittee escorted Mr. Folk to his hotel at

not leave their work until arter K o'clock

At 3 o'clock a popular reception was
held at the Metropole Hotel.
Prior's Military Band played, after
which Thomas Vannatta. one of the best
known business men and Democrat of
St. Joseph, stepped to the front of the bal
cony, and Introduced Mr. Folk as "the
man of the hour." to the S.009 people In
front of the hotel. As the prosecutor of
boodlers stepped forward, the crowd gave
him a loud cheer and clapped their hands.
Mr. Folk spoke briefly and caught the
favor of his auditors, after complimenting
the city, by referring to the fact that the
honest people of Missouri would not let
the boodlers drive them out of the State,
but that the honest people would either
drive the boodlers- out or put them where

gleefully that the boodlers "cannot stay

by trotting- a mllo under adverse condi

The daughter of Sidney Dillon was paced
by a runner, driven by Scott McCoy, and
another runner follow oil closely to urge
the mare to a supreme effort.
The track of the Memphis Driving Club
never showed to better advantage. Teams

the day. putting on finishing touches, and
when the time for Lou Dillon's trial ar

A. strong- wind from the north swept
down the long back stretch, however, and
Judge Newton announced to the specta

of the game little trotter.
Lou Dillon appeared on the track at 3:10
p. m.. and. after a preliminary, Sanders
announced that he was ready for the
start. Tho two runners were aligned In
position, and it was noticed that a strip of
board about one yard wide was fastened
to the pacemaker's sulky, directly under
the seat. This, it was announced, was
used to keep the dust out of the mare's

To the surprise of every one. Lou Dillon
seemed to travel faster, and when the
half-mile was reached the timer's slate
clicked out :2H. A great cheer arose and
many horsemen predicted that a new rec

was forced to whip the runner to keep
clear of the trotting marvel, which was
poshing- him closely. The three-quarters
pole was passed In 1SH. and the mare
had turned for home.
The wind now was an advantage rather
than a detriment and with a superb burst
of speed. Lou Dillon, urged 'on by the
shouts of the drivers of the runners,

When the time was flashed to the spec

and clicer followed cheer. Sanders was
literally' lifted from his sulky by an ad

showered with congratulations.
It was a noticeable fact that th
