Tho visitor's record shows
that 10,500 persons visited Shakes

"Whatever proof they may have
that Bacon wrote Shakespeare's
plays it ib evident that Shakes
peare still draws the crowds.
Our merchants should try
tho benefit of railroad excursions
to Kirksvillo for tho benefit of
their retail trade. A railroad ex
cursion once or twice a mouth
would bring hundreds of dollars
here that otherwise would not

-Jackson L. Smith of Jeffer-

Tho Democratic journals
are continually harping upon the
great benefits the East has deriv
from the tariff, and all admit the
truthfulness oE their assertions,
But will it not bo just as beneficial
to the "West -when tho bulk of the
manufacturing, as it is sure to be,
is done here?
When the Mills Tariff bill
shall havo been reported back to
the House of Representatives from
the committee of the whole, a sub
stituto will be introduced by the
Republicans, providing for a re
duction of ?91,000,000 in revenue,
of which $3,000,000 would bo on
tobacco and $G,000,000 on alcohol,
besides $5S,000,000 for repeal of

, The Supremo Court, iii an
opinion, written by Judge Sher
wood reverses Judge Nooman
upon the law of 1857. Sunday
law. It is held that the city
government of St. Louis never
ba.l any authority to grant
permission for tho sale of wine
and beer on Sunday. All of tho
judges, except Ita-, who is absent,
concur, and there is every pros
pect that St LouisanB will have to
quench their Sundav thirst -with
Mississippi water, which, is not
bad after is well filtered and iced.
Mr. Voorhees appologized
Tuesday for thejunparliaraentary
language used by him in the sen
ate during tho discussion of a
week ago, in violation of the rules
and dignity of tho Senate. He
pleaded that ill health had pre
vented his making an earlier apol
ogy. It is repotted that he has
had an attack of rheumatism since
tlu discussion, but just what
paitofhis anatomy was affected
the report does not state. But it is
probable that tho attack was "in
The idea, originated by Mr.
Blaine some years ago, of holding a
Congress of the American nations
in Washington city has been
finally adopted by congress, and
tho President has been lequested
and authorized to invito tho sev
eral governments of the republic
of Mexico, Central and South
America, Hayti, San Domingo and
the Emphe of Brazil to join the
United States in a conference, to
be held in or near the month of
April 18S9. This conference can
not fail of pioducing great good
to all tho countries concerned, but
particularly to tho United States.
Tho resolution adopted by
tho County Central Committee, ic
quiring the judges at tho primary
election to ask tho question: "ate
yon a republican, and will you
support tho nominees?" and per
mitting only such as answer afiirm
tatively to vote, is causing consid
erable discussion. "Wo do no be
lieve that it is the meaning or in
tention of tho resolution to cause
this question to bo applied to
known Republicans; but only to
those whoso political faith is un
known, or has heretofore been
democratic Tho meaning of the
resolution will bo a matter for tho
decision of tho judges, and in con
sidering it thoro can bo but ono
object kept in view, and that is to
prevent tho nomination of un
worthy men by voters of tho oppo
sition part, that thoy may bo tho
more easily beaten at tho general
election. "Wo think the above is
tho proper construction of tho
resolution and if construed to
mean moro than this it will mean
too much, and might work a detri
ment to tho party.
THE H. & 0. RAILROAD.
Tho contemplated railroad
from Hannibal, through Kirksvillo
to Omaha, is not tho product of a
forlorK hope by any means, but
ono that gives rich promise of an
early andspeedy consummation.
No part of our state ever prosonted
a moro inviting field for railroad
development than does tho section
through which this lino is project
ed. On either sido, for many miles
is as fine an agricultural and stock
growing country as can bo found
in the west And this is true of tho
entire route, except whero it pass
es through tho rich coal fields of
Adair and Putnam counties, and,
even hero tho hills produce bluo
grass, wheat and clover abundant
ly, and tho valleys are as fertile as
can be found anywhere. A map
of the country for five milps on
each sido of tho line, with a state
ment of agricultural productions
would make an enviable showing
for the examination of capitalists,
and would certainly create an in
terest in tho development of the
Again the people along this line
will tako a peculiar interest in its
speedy completion; for, it will, to a
great extent bo under their con
trol, as a portion of the capital
must be obtained directly from
them by private subscription.
This will enable them to havo a
material influence in causing it to
pass through certain points.
Wo find an example of this
method of building a railroad in
the construction of the Chicago
and Alton through this state.
"When this lino was built busi
ness men and farmers all along
the lino subscribed liberally and
stock was issued them for every
dollar subscribed. Tho road was
rushed to completion and tho stock
was then bought up by capitalists,
and immediately went to par.
The toad has ever been a paying
one, and has been of incalculable
benefit to tho country through
which it runs.
Thero is no reason why the
Hannibal and Omaha lino cannot
bo built ns was tho Chicago and
Alton, and become its equal if not
its superior in every respect.
