said: "That order goes. It is not a bluff.
I am off on the 19th, and although I have

GETS A SETBACK
Annual Ficnic of Twenty-Second
Ward Republicans Kmls Dif
ferently Than Expected.
NOT MUCH OF A LOVE FEAST.
Invited Guests From Out in the
State Resent Dictation of St.
Louis Leaders and Voice
What was originally intended to be a
love feast, to give impetus to the Wal
bridge gubernatorial boom, resulted in a
series of brief aoiresses, which were most
distressing to the adherents of tho former
mayor, who wcro Instrumental In the ar
rangements for the annual picnic of the
Twenty-second Ward Republican Club at
Meramec Highlands, yesterday.
The Twenty-second Ward Republican
Club is a strictly Walbrldgc organization
and its leaders had much more In view
than a midsummer outing for the members
of the club, and their families when they
summoned them to the banks of the
More than a dozen members of the State
Committee occupied seats on the pijtform,
and among those present Included leaders
of the party from all sections of the State
and not a few of the friends of the family
rom St. Louis
The rank and file was not limited to the
Twenty-second Ward alone, for every
ward of the city had at least one repre
sentative in the audience of 5,000 or more.
When the first speaker announced the
purpose of the gathering, the backs of
the country visitors began to stiffen, and
as each of the succeeding speakers who
made the initiatory remarks Indicated the
plan of the programme makers, strange
mutterlngs were heard.
To the dismay of tho Walbrldgc back
ers, the out-of-town leaders who had been
invited to witness a spontaneous outburst
of enthusiasm for the Walbridge move
ment, took active steps to extract the
virility from the same, and when they
were through they had succeeded to a re
COUNTRY AGAJNST CITY.
It was the old row of the country
against the city, and openly demon
strated the hostility which tho country
leaders have against Mr. Walbrldgc and
theh city crowd.
The first speakers Indicated that' St.
Louis had decided to nominate Mr. Wal
bridge for governor and would select the
remainder of the ticket to suit him. and
that element of the party which was so
completely defeated by the Aklns crowd
at the Chicago convention.
When the leaders from out In the State
came to but their resentment at the cut
and dried proceedings, the feeling was not
concealed. One of the latter declared th'at
the Walbridge boom was a move of the
antI-Roo3evelt Republicans; was unde
niably in the interest of Kerens and would
be met In the country by the unified
opposition of the farmers and the men
who are opposed to the trusts.
Mr. Walbridge was present when the
cold water began to trickle over his boom.
He was on the programme for an address
but cut It short when the band started
back to the dancing pavilion, taking with
It most of the crowd. Among the .speak
ers were Congressman Richard Bartholdt.
George C. R. Wagoner. H. L. Caultleid,
John H. Flannigan, who evoked the only
enthusiasm with a choice lot of his "Fire
BOTHWELL IS FAVORED.
It develops that one source of the op
position to Walbridge comes from some
who favor BoU ll for Governor, and

Bell Telephone Company, of which he Is
president, as being tinctured too strongly
with the trust. Within the last week let
ters have been sunt to every officer of
Independent telephone companies of Mis
souri by G. W. Schweer, an officer of an
independent company, at Windsor. Tho
letter protests against the recognition by
the Republican party ot a man who Is
allied with the Bell Telephone Company,
which, the circular states, is attempting
to exterminate the Independent com
panies. The letter ends: "Nominate a candidate
who is as able as Mr. Wa'brldge, and fur
whom no apologies need be made."
Among the Republicans present were:
Hiram Lloyd, who presided: C. P. Wal
