pl is nol dellnltely known. The f
Hist authentic exploration of j
this territory was by the French, ?
Juliet and Father Marquette in j
ItiT.'l. Kreuch settlers gradually j
localed In Missouri, in 1704 St. i
Louis being settled. This was t
one year after Spain acquired ?
from Franco the Louisiana Ter- |
rltory of which Missouri was u i
Colonisation greatly Increased i
after tho ordinance of 1787, t
which excluded slavery from tho t
Northwest territory, as this nat- t
urally deflected many jlo the ter- ?
rltory west of tho Mississippi \
who otherwise would have set- .
tied In the north. The slavery J
question continued to bold the \
stage in Missouri history. After j
the Louisiana Purchase In 1803 ?
added this vast western area to ?
tho United States, emigration j
Increased to such an extent that j
In 1821) Missouri formed a statu j
government and applied for ad- !
mission to the Union. Hitter an- j
tngonism Immediately arose in !
congress against the addition of j
another slave State, On the oth- i
er hand tho slavery adherents j
pointed out that Maine had Just f
been taken into the Union ns a j
free state and one state would f
therefore balance the other. A J
dual settlement was made by tho j
famous Missouri compromise, j
which accepted Missouri as a j
slave state but prohibited slavery !
lu tho rest of tho territory north i
of a line extending from the J
southern boundary of Missouri ]
to the Rocky Mountains. In- !
deed, lt was this agitation J
which, temporarily smothered at !
that time, burst forth In the Civ- [

And still another feature will be
the "Degree Contest in the Adoption
