State Auditor Selbert's Statement In Con
nection With Proposed Changes.
Jefferson City, Mo., April 6. State
Auditor Seibert has prepared the follow
ing statement of the bonded debt cf Mis
louri and the reduction that will follow
the passage of tha chapter ''of the treas
ury," including Senate bill No. 25 6 "of the
treasury, cutting down the tax for inter
est and sinking fund purposes from 20 to
10 cents on the $100."
According to this levy the rate of pay
ment of the State debt will take the fol
lowing course, making the debt at the be
ginning of the twentieth century $4,264,
000, bearing 3 ' per cent, interest, instead
of 113,197,000 on January 1, 1S89, bearing
from ZH to 6 per cent, interest.
A statement appended is designed to
demonstrate the adequacy of a levy of ten
cents on the $100 valuation to retire the
bonds as they fall due ac-d to take up the
constitutional requirement of $2a0,000 an
nually, when the amount falling due in
one year does not reach that amount, and
to meet the annual interest as it accrues
and falls due. The total taxable wealth
of the State, as shown by the assessment
made for the taxes of 1889, is practically
H800,000,000, and it is but reasonable to as
sume that amount will be materially in
creased during the period covered by this
statement. The measure of this increase
can best be approximatsd by comparison
with the actual increase during the past
ten years. In " 1879 tha total - taxable
wealth of the State was 555,120,070.
The increase necessary to swell this
sum to the amount of the present assess
ment Is something over 44 per cent., or an
increase annually of 4.4 percent. To be
entirely safe the estimated increase upon
. which this statement is based is placed at
2 per cent- per annum. It is estimated
that the amount realized on merchants'
and manufacturers' taxes will offset the
delinquency and costs of collection on the
current levies, and that one-fourth of the
levy for 1889 will be paid into the treas
ury In time for use during that year.
The bonded debt of tha State on Janu
ary 1, 189, is as follows:
T,000 5-20 8',4 per cents....
S.523 SO-year 6 per cents..
School and seminary certificates.
This represents the debt ot the State
upon which interest must be paid.
The 6 per cent, bonds are all straight
and must run the full time for which they
were issued, unless purchased at suaa a
premium as they may command in the
market. The 3,li per cents are 0-20s and
the option on tha first of them will expire
March 15, 1891, and whenever a sufficient
number of the 6 per cents do not fall due
in any one year to make up the constitu
tional requirement, the amount will be
made up by taking up the 3 per cent, op
The balance in the treasury to the credit
of the Interest and sinking funds, to
gether with estimated receipts yet to come
in on account of the levy of 18S3, and one
fourth of the levy at 10 cents for 1889, will
place the resources for 1889 at $1,5G),913.
Testimony Going to Show That the County
Officials of Taney County Are All Itald
FORSYTHK, Mo., April 6. The case
against William Miles and James S. Berry
for the murder of Captain Nat N. Kinney,
the Bald Knobber leader, was called
Thursday in the district court, when the
defense filed a motion for a change of
venue. Judge W. D. Hubbard allowed
sixteen witnesses on each side.
James Miller, school commissioner for
Taney County, was the first witness for
the defease. Ha stated that he knew
there were some, hard feelings against
Miles. He had heard quite a number of
people say that Miles could not get a fair
trial. The county was divided into two
factions calied Bald Knobbers and anti
Bald Knobbers. Defendant Miles was an
anti-Bald Knobber and belonged to the
militia in Taney County at the time of the
Bald Knobber excitement. Captain Nat
Kinnay was the chief of the regulators in
W. K. Wright said he had beard people
say that Miles and Berry could not get a
fair trial in Taney County. Being asked
what kind of feeling existed in Taney
County between the two sides he replied:
''Quite a hard feelinor. I think that it
would be hard to get a jury in this county
that would do justice to Miles and Berry.
I do not aim to say that there are no
honest men in this county, but the major
ity are Bald Knobbers and anti-Bald
"Do you attribute the killing of Captain
Kinney to the part he took in organizing
Bald Knobbers in Taney County V
' I do."
"Was he called a bad man?''
W. J. Johnson said there were two
parties in this county Bald Knobbers and
anti-Bald Knobbers. He did not believe
either party could get a fair trial in this
county. There were two sides in this
county and each one would hang the other
it they could.
Judge W. Lindsley, a member of the
county court and a Bald Knobber, being
nsied: "Judge, do you know whether or
not all cf the county officials belong to
what is known as Bald Knobbers or not?"
answered, "I think they do."
After Dr.Baldwin.an anti-Bald Knobber,
had said he did not think Miles and Berry
could get a fair trial In Taney County,
Judge Hubbard said he had heard enough
testimony and would grant a change of
venue to Greene County.
Miles and Berry were surrendered by
their bondsmen and put in jail, bJt Miles
gave a new bond in a few hours, but Kin
ney's friends were all at court and trying
to keep any one from going on Berry's
bond. They seemed to think he was the
fruilty one and that he planned the whole

THE CHINESE WALL
Btxteen rtundred MUes ot Massive TUCason-
. . rj Structure.
I have just returned from a trip to
tho Chinese wall, and I have 8Qeri"
enough to say there is no doubt of its
existence and greatness. Built 1.70C
years before America was discovered,
when our ancestors, half-naked and al
together savage, wandered throughout
France, Germany and England, when
Rome was in the height of her Repub
lican form of government, and when
the Roman empire had not yet begun
0 be, these massive towers still crown
the parapets, and the 1,600 miles of
wall still stand. It is a two
days' ride by donkey from Pekin,
and one poes through the north
ern edge of the great plain of China
and meets it in tha great chain of
mountains which separate China from
Mongolia and Manchuria, Manchuria
and Mongolia lie directly north of
They are both subject to and gov
erned by China, 'and they equal in size
about one-balf the whole territory of
the United States. Above them lios
Siberia, and south of their western
edge is Thibet and Hi, which are also
Chineso countries as to govern
ment. All are sparsely sottlod,
and Mongolia has less than
two people to the square mXe,
while its whole population is not
greater than tho city of New York.
Manchuria has 12.000,000 peoplo, and
both countries are far more 6avage
than the Chinese, and tho Mongolians
live largely in tents. The trade of all
these people, however, comes north
from Pekiu and passes over the
mountains and through the great wall
at the gate which I visited. The wall
was built originally to keep them out,
but they have swarmed through in
hordes again and again, and it is a
Manchurian emperor that now 6its
upon tho Chinese throne.
What a wonderful structure it is!
As I stood upon its ramparts I could
see it climbing the mountains and go
ing down tho valleys as far as my eyes
could reach. It did not diminish in
strength nor size at the various points
1 visited, and its masonry would have
been good work for tho American
builders of to-day. It is about twen-ty-nve
feet high, and at the top it is
so wide that two carriages could drive
abreast along it and tho hubs of one
would not touch those of tho other. Its
exterior walls are of blue brick of such
a size that they look like massive
stones, and these are filled in with
earth and paved with brick at tho top.
The grass and the moss have now
grown over the top of this great wall.
No archers now guard it, and it stands
amid the snowy mountains a monument
of the almond-eyod .men who thus,
2,000 years ago, sought to protect their
homos and those of their descendants
for all time to come. F. G. Carpenter,

The Ounce of Prevention.
Under the above heading the New York
World of Feb. 10th, contains an editorial,
of which the following are a few extracts:
"Physicians and unprofessional men of
sense agree t hat if people would tukea little
of the pains to prevent disease that they do

Much baa been said and written in recent
years concerning the extreme and often
times fatal danger which results from do
lay in the treatment of kidney diseases..
Physicians admit that they can not control
advanced disease iu those organs, and it is
doubtful whether they can control it in any
stage without tho assistance of Warner's
Safe Cure, which is established as the only
known means which will reliably prevent
and cure this class of disease.
Besides, it has been definitely ascertained
that kidney disease is the real cause of ill
health ia most cases where consumption,
heart, brain or nervous disorders aro sup
posed to ex ist, and in consequence of such
belief many fatal mistakes have been com

8;i-h disorders, which aro but the symp

There is no safer or surer way by which
health can be preserved and disease averted
than the occasional uso of Warner's Kafo
Cure, which will benefit the "engines of
life" tho kidneys, even ir they are in a
normally healthy state ; while tho good that
will result in case disease is threatened, or

A SOUTHERN QUESTION.
How to Prevent the Kise and Spread o
Dr. W. C Van Bibber, a prominent
physician of Baltimore, Md., has pub
lished a paper recently read by him
before tha Baltimore Academy oi
Medicine, upon the prevention of yel
low fever in the South. Dr. V an Bib
ber's treatise is a notable contribution
to the literature of the terrible scourge,
and abounds in valuable suggestions
as to the best means of guarding
against its rise and spread. Argu
ments are forcibly presented in favor
of improved sanitary methods, and a
moro enlightened system of quaran
tine in Southern cities. Upon tha
question of proper sanitary conditions.
Dr. Van Bibber says:
"In 1881, a paper was read before
the American Public Health Associa
tion, at their meeting in Savannah,
Ga., under the title of 'Two Sugges
tions Concerning Healthy Buildings.'
The first suggestion made was 'to build,
houses upon arches or piers in low,
flat grounds.' Man has tho privilege
of building under hi own control. He
aiitit take the earth as ho finds it, but
one stylo of building may be more
healthy, convenient and salubrious in
ono situation than another. Instead of
springing the houses out of tho ground
in low, flat situations, it is hotter to in-,
terposo a stratum of air between tha
house and tho ground. If tho houso bo
built well up off the ground, and the
earth paved benesith it, with no in
closed yards, then continued cleanli
ness could be easily maintained. Tho
surface ventilation of the air would bo
.ine prominent advantage of this stylo
if building; surface drainage, an easy
Abatement of certain nuisances, with
consequent increased healthfulncss and
jomfort would be the rouilt.
"If Macclenny and Jacksonville and
Decatur had been built in this way,
ind had boen kept according to tho in
tention of hueh a stylo of building,
Lheir inhabitants would havo boen
avcd tho recent epidemic. This plan
of building tho houses well olT tho
ground, upon arches, columns or piers,
with clean hard pavements of brick or
concrete underneath and around them,
1 regard with great favor; it would not
only bo an improvement in itself, but
would bring after it many other im
provements. Tho objections which
have been raised against it are the ex
pense, tho inconveniences and tho dan
ger from violent storms. The expense
tniht be a little heavier at first, but if
all did it, this increased expense would
soon bo equally distributed If tho
houso cost more to build, tho workmen
would get moro for building it, and
in this way it would not bo considered
a burden amongst tho poor. As to in
conveniences, if there bo any, they aro
not worth balancing against the gain,
and habit would soon make it cease to
bo felt. Tho danger from violent
storms could bo overcome by the sup
ports of chimney stacks sprung from
tho ground, or by supporting towers
or beams, by means of which tho
houses could bo firmly secured, and all
"It is difficult for somo minds to
divest themselves of the early biaH
which they havo had from infancy,
from building on tho ground with cel
lars, and pits aud sinks. These aro
not suited to low, II at lands in a warm
climate; a sufllciont standard of cleanli
ness can not bo maintained in their
presence, or where they exist. Tha
question ns to how high tho buildlng
ine should bo off tho ground is an
m portai t ono, if it ever comes to ba
considered as a matter of statute eu
tctment." Upon tho subject of tho quarantine
of the future, Dr. Van Bibber says:
"Let us speak of tho attractive quar
antine of tho future. Iu this, you will
see four houses situated at a proper
distanco from each other, in he nuwt
accessible point of tho State, built ami
appointed in a manner not only to
make them most efficient for tho com
fort of tho sick and ufllictod citizen-
and btrnngors, but to servo also an
schools and models to teach private
citizens how they can preserve amongst
themselves continued cleanliness and
give no foothold to preventable dis
ease. Tho humblest man in tho Com
monwealth can not then plead igno
rance as to how he should and must
build his houso and manage hi
domestic afTuirs, no as to preserve his
own health, not injure that of his
neighbor, nor impair the reputa
tion of his Mate. These four
buildings fthould have ample commu
nication with each other and tho out
side world by telegraph, telephone aud
what other appliances the future may
havo in store. Then no one who is
ouaranlined will feel himself isolated
or harvhly treated. 1 ho visitors from
abroad and tho denizen can alike re
ceive and send messages from and to
all points. , ,
"In thee establishments all knowl
edge of vellow fever is to be centored;
here the disease can not only bo treat
ed, but studied under the most favor
able circumstances; and from them all
necessary rules for iti prevention
should emunate. They should be under
th control of the Board of Health, who
should be well selected and thoroup My
competent, and they should see that
nothing be wanting to make tho etab
liBliment aa home-like and attractive
as tho most agreeable resort."
