TilK Republicans in the Missouri
legislature have shown their haouf
aa obstructionists and are evidently
endeavoring to make political capital
for their party, out of the special ses
sion, rather than to effect the legis
lation for which it was called. Early
this week two Republican members
of the internal Improvement Com
mittee took occasion, in a minority
report, to inject a Republican cam-!
isign document which tbey desired
printed, ia srhich they devote a Urge
space to abuse ut the Democratic
party, aud but little to the discus
sion of the bill on the which Uue re
port was based. Tbia illustrates the
idea ot the average Republican mem
ber, who hiis but one ambition, and
that ambition, is to do something to
injure the Democrat! party. This
clacs care nothing ior the good of
the people. Good laws do not enter
into their thoughts for a moment.
Their whole idea ia to once more
gain power in this state. Tbey see
that the state kas grown rich sod
is prosperous under the Democratic
management aud tbey sigh for the
days of Tom Fletcher once more,
when stealing was good. These days
geutlemen are gone, never to return.
Or all the foolish laws ever passed
by congress, the one placing a tax
on oleomargaiioe, or imitation butter,
will certainly take a bigfa position in
the list. It benefits no class outside
of a few large dairymen in the east
ern states, while it works a positive
hardship on two distinct and exten
sive classes, namely: The cattle
raisers, and the poor workingmen
who are the largest users of the imi
tation butter. From the first class it
cuts off from one to two dollars off
the price of every steer sent to mar
ket, while on the latter class it adds
on at least five oeuts on every pound
of butter used, and all this tax is laid
" on these large classes that a com para
tively few men who own eosre and
have grown rich from their prodvots
may be enabled to squeeze more
money out of the public to add to
their already well tiled coffers. If
it was claimed tl.at oleomargarine
is in any way unwholesome or un
bealttn'ul, there would be some jus
tic in this tax. But no fcoch claim
is set up, but on the contrary it is ad
mitted to be a wholesome and health'

seemed to ooiue as an especial boom
