Resolutions Declare That .Candi
date Must Not Be Tainted by
Connection With Franchise,
The first gun in the. campaign of Judge
Ieo Rassieur for the Republican nomina
tion for Governor was fired last night
when the Twentieth Ward Republican
Club adopted resolutions asking the for
mer commander In chief of the Grand
Army of the Republic to make a race for
The resolutions pledge the support of the
club, offering everything In Its power to
secure hla nomination. A copy of "the
resolutions were sent to Judge. Rassleur.
accompanied by a letter from II. S Par
ker, president of the club, asking for an
expression from tlio prospective candi
date. The resolutions recite that It Is neces
sary for the Republican party, to have a
chance to secure an election, to put up a
man whose honor and .honesty are abov e
reproach, one whose record stamps him
asa clean man and an ndocate of clean
administration, and a man unhampered
by connection with a franchise-holding
corporation. j , . t
The platform Includes the denunciation
W the Democratic administration, which
tisuaily appears in Republican resolutions.
It further states that the club .believes
Judge Rassleui1 to possess all the requi
sites of a successful candidate.
The Republican primaries in St. Louis
will be held Friday, and it is thought that
the action of the primary will decide
whether Judge Rassleur or Cyrus P. Wal
brldge will be the candidate.
Concerning his probable candidacy. Judge
Eassleur said yesterday afternoon:
"If the EL Louis delegates think that I
would make a stronger candidate in thU
city than former. Mayor Walbrldge I
shall ask some friend to place my name
before the State Convention. If the St.
Louis delegation" thinks that Mr. Wal
briflge would make the stronger candi
date, he will have my support.
"I have received letters from three or
four different parts of the State request
ing me to make the race. My decision,
however, awaits an expression of opinion
from the St. Louis delegates."
After reading a ncwspaper-icllpplng,
which stated that some of his friends
thought he would make a stronger candi
date than Mr. Walbrldge, because the lat
ter Is president of the Bell Telephone
Company, Judge Rassleur said:,
"As to that I know nothing further
than that Mr. Walbrldge is president of
the Bell Telephone Company. But I can
not see how that will affect his. candidacy.
If he were Goernor, from a sense of pro
priety, he might refue to urge any legis
lation for tho benefit of the telephone
"Should the St Louis delegation decide
that I would make a stronger candidate
I would not attempt to make een a short
campaign In the State, for the date of
tho convention is too near."

were held in Clinton, the one called by
the old and the other by a new county

the latter are anti-Cook. John A. Cross

Conkllng had come into the county and
had manipulated affairs so that the old
committee avoided meeting with the ncw

the Folk men had a majoiity of the latter.

committee had organized the convention,

It seems that the vote of Shoal Town

It appears that the delegates of the
Reed convention refused to submit the

Thomas Hacking of Carthage and J. W.
McKntyre of Joplln. speaking for the con
testing Folk delegates spoke at length of
the alleged political Iniquities and enormi
ties perpetrated by Gilbert Darbee and the
Central Committee, which he dominated.
The State Committee, in the first place.
It was lUclired, arbitrarily overrode all
preeedent b ordering that the eastern and
western legislative district.1 of Jasper
County be united for the gubernatorial
contest Then, it was asserted, maiorities
were ignored in mass meetings, that, in
short, the Itnrbee control and the election
of the Reed delegates was secured by
wholesale fraucN and brute force.
Frank Tarlow of Webb City spoke for
the Barbee men He said that the Jasper
convention convened wjth n Iteeel uncon
tested majority of to 52: he declared
that in settling contests two Folk delega
tion? were seated from Joplln He ar
sered that thlrt-Ilve Tolk delegates hid
bolted the regular and ldd a rump con
vention, while twelve Folk elelegates re
mained, making 10S in what the I5jrliee
men term the regular convention. He In
sisted that Jasper wants Its entire nine

Testimony was taken then on behalf of
the anti-Rarbee or Folk men. In one mass
meeting, it was sworn, Barbee. acting as
chairman, ordered a division of Folk and
Ree.l vctcrs, by the one going to one side
of the hal and the others to the other
side. A witness declared that he counted
seventy-eight Folk men, though Barbee
announced the vote as 63 to ."2 In favor of
Reed. Barbee then ordered the convention
adjourned without a motion, being put.
The Folk men then organized and elect
ed a contesting delegation. Negrots nnd
others not Democrats, it was averted,
were in the Ilarbce crowd. The proceed
ings were riotous. One witness '-linitted
that It was his first e-vpcriencr at a j.rl

HOME RULE PUNK PROPOSED.,
The plank which they submitted reads as
"We condemn tle metropolitan system
of control of tbo police and election offi
cials through boards appointed by the
Governor of the State1, and favor tbe
municipal ein whereby the people of
eacli locality select their own officiil.?.
The right of the people in each local'ty to
select their own officers Is Democratic, and
it is not in accord wish true Democracv
that large cities in the State be governed
as subject provinces.
"Centralization of State control Is n Re
publican idea, and the Governor should
have no part, either by appointment, con
firmation or veto power, to control in any
manner the municipal police or election
"We recomnicnel the speedy enactment
of laws whereby the citizens of the va
rious cities ot Missouri may choose their
own ollicers, who will enforce the election
laws and have control of the various po

If this plank were adopted by the con
vention it would mean that If sufficient in
fluence could be brought to gain the Gov
ernor's consent, a special session of the
General Assembly would be an immediate
result. Governor Docker- said that he
would do so sometime ago. and tho oppo

should be left to a special session of the

MANY SHAKE CRONJE'S HAND.
Crowd Shows !No Mercy to Aged
As a result of the general public being
allowed Inside of the Boer War Camp yes
terday. General Fiet Cronje was a very
tlred man when he got to bed la3t night.
When the gitc to the camp was opened
there vvas a general stampede of men and
women and children, all eager to sec the
former Boer Commander and the Inside of
his tent. The crowd surrounded him. One
of the crowd rushed up and grabbed the
old General's hand. This was the begin
ning of fully an hour of handshaking for
the South African Chief, which gav him
a severe hand cramp.

PROPOSAL OF ANTI-COOK MAN.
Committee Decides Nomination
of Candidates Shall Take Place
in Kegular Order: o
Limit to Speeches.
BY A STAFF CORRUSTONDENT.
Jefferson City. July 19. During the meet
ing of the Committee on Rules and Order
of Business. J. P. Sommerville of Andrew
County, who Is instructed for Cook, but
personally opposed to his nomination, stat
ed in open session that that was his po
sition. He made the statement when the
committee was discussing the motion to
have the roll called In reversed alphabeti
cal order on ever- other call.
Sommerville was the chief advocate of
the alternating order.
I. R. Kelso was chairman of the com
mittee and W. A. Williams of Bates Coun
t was secretar. It was decided to have
the order of business as follows:
Report of Credentials Committee: report
of Committee on Permanent Organization;
report of Resolutions Committee: nomina
tion of Governor. Lleuter.ant Governor,
Secretary of State, Auditor. State Treas
urer, Attorney General. Railroad and
Warehouse Commissioner. State Chairman.
District State Committeeman. Preridentlal
Electors at I-nrgp and District Electors.
All resolutions must be presented In
writing. Candliiates w(ll be nominate I
from the districts in numerical order. Sec
onding speeches must be limited to 'en
minutes. Roll calls will alternate In alpha
betical order, the wards of St. Louis
Fnless the convention overrules the
action of the Committee on Nominating
Speeches, there will be long sessions. All
nominating speeches will be limited in
length, the good judgment of the speakers
being counted upon. The reversal of al
phabetical order in calling the counties
has more to do with the tight over rail
road commisslonershlp than an thing else,
as some of the counties don't wish to
show- their hands.
