A STRAIGHT ISSUE.
Mr. Folk's nomination at Jefferson City ought to
present what the people Intended a clean, straight,
plain issue of pure government against boodle and
sympathy with boodle.
Without listening to exaggerated attacks on
Secretary Cook and Auditor Allen, the delegates to
the convention nevertheless understand clearly that
the lame intended by the people will be clouded by
the nomination of either. In the case of Mr. Cook
there is the Speed-Lyons transaction. Auditor
Allen is not connected with the history of any
wrongdoing, but his candidacy has all through been
part and parcel of the desperate efforts to break
down the reputation of Mr. Folk. Allen's success
would be a blow at the strength of the next Gov
As public officiate both of these gentlemen are
well qualified and thoroughly honest. The Republic
has always insisted on that fact. The two offices
will be properly conducted If they are nominated
Outside of the routine of the offices they are ene
mies of Mr. Folk. Their nomination would be a
victory of anti-Folk forces; would disappoint the
people and discourage the hopes raised by the fight
against bad influences in government. The Demo
cratic campaign would be burdened from the start.
There is no need of making this a matter of per
sonal feeling. Most of the Democrats who are op
posed to Secretary Cook and Auditor Allen ar)jjry
sonally Inclined to like them; for both gentlemen
have attributes of popularity. But the victory of a
necessary principle of government and the Interests
of the Democracy In a critical campaign require
that such men should not be at the front as State
representatives of the party.
The delegates are now informed on the situa
tion. It Is for them to use their judgment.
CONCESSIONS AT THE FAIR.
No universal exposition held in the United States
could be a popular success without a subsidiary
amusement show. The Pike Is more than a finan
cial necessity. It la an accessory institution which
the fun-loving percentage of visitors demands; and
patronage is almost so certain that an assurance
cor'pany could afford to take risks on the expected
The eide-show feature of the St. Louis Exposi
tion is' a great amusement enterprise in Itself, as it
realizes an Investment of more than $5,000,000. The
Pike is a thoroughfare 90 feet wide, paved with
brick; in the center of the pavement is a row of
ornamental posts, surmounted with decorative elec
tric lamps. The thoroughfare is about a mile long,
with picturesque and unique structures on either
side. There are; about forty-five entertainment con
cessions. Much can be said in praise of the private at
traction at the Exposition, as distinguished from
the main projects which are part of the Fair. The
Pike affords good entertainment None of the
shows are vulgar. Most of them are excellent.
Many of them are genuine novelties; some are scien
tific; others are sensational and a few educational.
For variety, in the way cf advertisement, the
Pike stands without a peer. Of course, none of the
If attractions picase everyoouy, as insies airier; uiu
?fi.The attractions were chosen to appeal to all tastes.
and collectively they form what Is probably the
biggest and most diverse of amusement projects.
A vifcit to the Pike is essential to a thorough Inspec
tion of the Exposition.
Xew York Is highly delighted over a pleasure
resort which "was constructed to resemble the Pike.
Yet that -resort, beautiful and big and entertaining
as it is. does not compare with the Pike, except In
Humiliation. There are concessions at the Expos!
tlon which would, by comparison, make the New
York venture seem commonplace.
Although the Pike is not strictly a part of the
Exposition, It Is a meritorious, accessory featuie, in
which the management may take pride. The public
required a side-show, and the management provided
one of diameter. In return the amusement eonces
.sions are instrumental in defraying the expenses
of conducting the Exposition. And. il may lie said,
the patron are getting their money's vvoitli, not
only in pleasure, but in interest ami iustnictlou.
EXAMINING CONTESTED GROUND.
From the Democratic Maudpoint. the latest Re
publican tali: about New York State must lie re
garded as distinctly encouraging. Instead of claim
ing New Yoik, the Republican party, through the
party press, assert" its ability to get along without
it. Piior lo Parker's nomination New York Re
publican stock had n firmer tone. We lieaid noth
ing but boasts of Republican solidarity ami
strength. Now comes the otlicial news that Re
publicans "are convinced that the President can be
elected without New Yoik, though of (Oiirse theie is
no disposition to overlook the importance of a vie
tory in the Kiuplre State."
This "conviction" of ability to win without New
York is based upon a Republican claim of the lol
lowiug States: California, 10; Connecticut. 7; Dela
ware, .'t; Illinois, 17; Indiana, 15; Iowa, 13; Kausa,
10; Maine, d; Massachusetts, 1(5; Michigan. 11; Min
nesota, lJ; Montana, ;i; Nebraska, S; New Hamp
shire. 4; New Jersey, 12; North Dakota, 4; Ohio, Xi;
Oregon. 4; Pennsylvania, 34; Rhode Island, 4; South
Dakota, 4; Utah, :t; Vermont, 4; Washington, 5;
Wyoming. 3; the total being 247, or 8 more than a
majority in the Electoral College.
This estimate concedes 170 votes to the Demo
cratic party, and places West Virginia and Wiscon
sin in the doubtful column with New York, making
the total of doubtful votes 59.
To win without New York, then, the Republicans
must perform the task of carrying New Jersey, or
Connecticut and West Virginia in lieu of New Jer
sey. It would be odd indeed should New York go
Democratic and New Jersey and Connecticut re
main In the Republican column. To win without
New York the Republicans must carry every one of
the doubtful Western States. They must carry
Delaware also; whereas that State reasonably be
longs iii the doubtful column, being far from a Re
publican certainty under present conditions. They
must carry Montana likewise, over the powerful
Democratic organization In that State.
This Republican estimate is contrary to the
much-expressed and apparently sane opinion that a
tide of political sentiment sufficient to turn New
York would be strong enough to carry albo most of
the other doubtful States. This opinion is sus
tained by the concentration of effort on New York
by lioth sides. Both parties will have their main
working headquarters in New York and branches
in Chicago. Large attention will be given to such
States ns Indiana. Illinois and Wisconsin, but it is
evident that all the political managers have come
to the conclusion that "as New Yoik State goes the
country will go."
A very interesting examination of contested
ground is made by the New York Times, which
notes what conditions were in 1802, when the united
Democracy made its la&t successful presidential
fight, aud calculates what votes that were given to
the Republican ticket in 1900 must be won back by
the Democrats In order to elect Judge Parker. In
the following table prepared by the Times a list is
given of all the votes that were cast for Mr. Cleve
land in 1S92 from States which in 1900 cast their
electoral voles for Mr. McKinley, together with the
number of electoral votes which these States will
have this year. In Michigan. North Dakota and
Ohio Mr. Cleveland received only a part of the elec
toral votes, and the same number are put In the
third column to show how many adverse votes must

The featmes of the exhibition are the -locomotives,
trains, coaches ami ears of steam and electric
rail systems, the numerous models of all types of
ocean steamships, the automobile vehicles, the ves
sels ami implements used in expleiatiou. the ex
emplifications of the discovery, application and de
velopment of principles, the novelties among the
new inventions and improvement-, aud the wonder
ful feat of engineering performed and proposed nt
this time to facilitate general transportation and
travel. In these sections, the United States, Ger
many. France and Great Britain aie pre-eminent.
It would be difficult to conceive a belter, more
complete or clearer illustration of modern condi
tions of transportation, or to get a more convincing
idea as to the advancement which has been made
aud is oeing made, among all of the leading na
tions. In invention, improvement and adjustment.
Above all, the transportation exhibition indicates
that In engineering ami mechanics genius and talent
are accomplishing Intellectual fean as marvelous
as other men present in the arts and sciences, and
certajnly more stupendous wonders.
Without one special event to draw out a great
throng any day, the attendance at the World's Far
lu the week ending July 10 was 500,339. Natural
conditions hardly could hae been worse. The
week's showing is good. The attendance of hun
dreds of thousands per week In these circumstances
surely points to the attendance of millions in the
cool and stiiiuy nutuinu.

The States which in 1892 voted for Cleveland have
this year in the Electoral College counting In I he
seven votes he received where the vote was divided
301 votes. Deducting from these the 147 votes
which will be cast this year by the States which
changed to McKinley in 1800, we have 104 votes on
which Democracy can rely if there Is no change
from 1900. Upon this basis Democracy must win
back 85 votes from States which voted for McKin
ley In 1900.
The Times thinks that New York with 39, W;st
Virginia vzith 7, Maryland with 8 and Delaware
with 3 a total of 57 votes form JLhe nucleus from
which all calculations should be made. It regards
New York as reasonably certain. West Virginia as
certain and Maryland and Delaware as extremely
likely to go with West Virginia. If these votes can
be gained, there remain 28 to be found. Indiana
with 15 and Wisconsin with 13 would supply them.
Illinois with 27, or Indiana with 15 and New Jer
sey with 12, would come within one of the goal.
California with 10, New Jersey with 12 and Con
necticut with 6 would furnish the required number.
Without doubt all reasonable estimates give
Democracy a chance which calls for fighting with
all the resolute force and effectiveness of which the
party Is capable.

The St. Louis World's Fair embraces numerous

of which is a distinct Institution. In the special
expositions the policy Is to please and instruct the

specialist. The application of this policy discovers
a system of compactness, with a special Interna

the edifice is quite properly called, palace.
The transportation exhibition proper is con

erected at a cost of $700,000. After the Palace of
Agriculture, it is the largest exhibit structure In

The great Anaconda mine, and affllated properties,
previous to the creation of the Amalgamated, were
owned by J. B. Haggin, Lloyd Tevls, and .Marcus Daly.
The control tf fl, TmnA-i , ..,
... ,.w,,v, ttIiu ielr operations were
absolutely vested in Marcus Daly, and he alone knew
where the lean veins ended and the fat ones began.
Deep down in his mind Marcus Daly cherished a dream
-a dream of Immense riches, and it was to be realized
in a simple enough nay. He should get together the
millions to buy out his partners on a basis of the valua
tion of the "ore in sight," then in supreme ownership
himself, reap untold profits out of the milling of the
plethoric veins he had been so careful to leave un
worked. Mr. Daly met Henry H. Rogers. The miner confided
his dreams and his aspirations to the magnate, who at
once magnificently undertook to realize them. The trade
was almost instantly made Mr. Rogers would buv the
properties cf Daly. Haggin and Tevls. at "in sight"
prices, and Daly would be his partner, hut the partner
ship must remain secret until the purchase was con
summaltd. The ownership of the Anaconda Company at the time
consisted of UW.uOO shares, and with the purchase of a
few shares over the majority at the "in sight" lean
vcln valuation of J24.0OO.O0O. would carry the turnover of
the management and the control. If took but a very

The World To-Day.
Reform, contrarj to the general supposition, makes
slower progress In Bosion than in Cnicago, and the
mobilization of public opinion to take decisive action on
admitted wrong is a simpler task in Chicago or New
York than it is in Boston. Causes gain currency and in
dorsement largely through social Influences. and these
to a constantly increasing extent are so Intel mingled
with political hierarchies of one kind and another that
they are often strangled before they are born. The most
striking evidence of tills fact is seen in the endeavors
tb govern Boston, the election methods of which have
been changed on the average every two years or less
within the last decade. The present Legislature of
Massachusetts has had before It several new proposi
tions to meet emergencies which have lately arisen, like
the election to the Board of Alderrmn of a man tinder
Indictment by the Pederal Grand Jury and the nomina
tion by popular vote, on the opposite ticket, of a negro
with a semicriminal record. In connection with this
nomination the most amazing fact is that, although the
man's record and personality were perfectly known
throughout the city by reason of the fact that a few
years ago. being then unknown, lie was elected a mem
ber of the Executive Council of the Commonwealth, he
received the largest nnd most emphatic vote from the
cultured, wealthy and aristocratic Back Bay Ward,
which is said to represent the most compact and cen
tralized body of New England hereditary blood and cul
ture In the city!
