For Associate .ludirr County Court Slid Dist,
The uuveiling of the monument to
the memory of the private soldiers
t)f the Confederacy at Richmond. Ya. ,
on Memorial day. was made the oc
casion for some such oratory on the
part of two Southern orators as we
have been accustomed to denounce
when it came from the other side.
Rv. Cave, of St. Louis, and Gen.
Pos ;er seemed to forget that the war
is over, and talked in a manner cal
vulatetl to widen rather than than
vloso the narrowing gap between
North and South. This was all
wrong. Fortunately, the best class
of the Southern journals disclaim the
pcrfervid utterances of these two
stump orators, and their buncombe
need not be mistaken for the senti
ment of the South. Rosser made an
special ass of himself when he said
'We are mocked at the North, and
will live to see the Yankee army
march again through the South and
pull down our monuments. '
Harper's Weekly says the Demo
cratic party has had its trial and has
failed and has demonstrated its in
capacity to carry out its pledges.
This is one of these half truths pro
verbially more dangerous than lies.
The Democratic party has W had its
trial not quite. It is having itn
trials, though, with open enemies
without and traitors within, but in
spite of both it has achieved as much
as could lie expected of a party prac
tically new to power and handicapped
wit h the long misrule of its predeces
sors. Indeed, the wonder should be
that the party has so long escaped
total wreck. Once we get this tariff
business settled we will have time to
go on with some other reforms. And
among other things to reform will be
our "reform" of the McKinley taritf.
The people who lose most by the
coal strike are the miners. Success
ful or unsuccessful they will lose by
it. The operators' loss is only tem
porary. The consumers will have to
pay in every cent the operators are
out by the strike. The gravest fea
ture of the struggle is the paralysis
of the many industries dependant on
the supply of coal and the partial
suspension of transportation. Per
haps in another decade we will have
learned how to make a great deal
less fuel do the needed work. The
present trouble should head invent
ors in the direction of means of econ
omizing fuel, which, as things are, is
wantonly wasted. We need a Count
There is pretty sure to be fire
around somewhere when smoke isob
served. The connection between Mr.
Cleveland, Mr. Carlisle and the sugar
barons may be explained away and
madi! to appear a very harmless af
fair, but, taken in connection with
the whole policy of the administra
tion, it looks bad. The Wilson bill
gave the sugar trust nothing. The
sugar schedule as Mr. Carlisle him
self confesses to having drawn it up
gives the trust everything even
more than does the McKinley law.
Is the trail of the serpent over this
administration, and is the serpent's
address, Wall Street, New York?
Ix this issue we present the an
noucement of Julius Albrecht, who
is a candidate for Associate Judge of
the County court from the 2nd Dis
trict. Mr. Albrecht was elected to
the position he wishes to re-occupy in
1 890 and served two years. He made
us a first-class connty judge and
gained -such experience in county af
fairs as should qualify him to render
the county like good service during
another term. He is thoroughly ac
quainted with the wants ,of our pso-
' pie, and has the public spirit to
favor and further all necessary re
forms. The office could not fall into
better hands than those of Judge
Jbrecht. ' ;,V

There i Mine doubt in most people's
minds as to wlto the Scotch-Irish aro.
They arc the descendants of tho
Scotch imported to Ireland by James
I. of Engluud. They did not like
their treatment in Ireland and many
of them emigrated to this country.
They have been proiniucnt In public
life since they first came over. They
havegiventlie States nine Presidents.
One of them wrote the Declaration
f Independence, and Hen. Crnnt and
James (5. Blaine were of that stock.
They have little of the Irish Celt in
I hem. having b cn originally lowland
Se.tch more Saxon than Celt. They
were brawny and brainy, and have
made a permanent mark in America.
It is declared that gambling is
largly on the increase in England
and incidentally that it is increasing
faster among women than men.
Here's a pretty state of affairs, truly.
Women have been chewing gum in
imitation of men chewing tobacco,
wearing clothes in imitation of those
of their brothers, drinking eau de
Cologne and other tentative tipples,
and now they arc on the home stretch
in vice and are playing the races,
euchre, high-five and pok no they
can't have got that far already. But
it s time to call a halt. If this thing
goes on men won't be left with a sin
gle vice they can call their own, and
will have to retalliate by using pow
der, rouge, corset9 and naddimr.
Flocr which costs $2.50 per barrel
in St. Louis costs only $2.87 in Lon
don. That looks like pretty cheap
transportation. However, notwith
standing the higher cost of this flour
in London, the London baker charges
only (5c. for the one pound loaf, where
as the St. Louis baker charges 10c.
The wage earner in this country cer
tainly needs high wages, when a tax
like this is placed on the primest ne
cessary of life. It is not the farmer
who holds us down, it is the middle
man and the retailer.
A Democrat has been heard to re
mark: ' I haven't quit bAng a Dem

lowing. It is hard to read of the

with any enthusiasm.

It takes a United States Senator
(with the help of the lobby) to figure

Heart, llenitrlx, ami Silver.
From tle Chi-;n, Intt't-Ocnn.
Tho Forom for .Inn contains two
articled ou "Tho Renewed Agitation
for Silver Coinage," as the editor
puts It. one by Mr. Franklin H.Hend.
of this city.andtheotherbyCongress-
man ueminx.ot Brooklyn. Mr Head
dix's not favor free coinage of silver
by Congressional enactment, but does
twist that the need of an internation
al agreement to that effect is the
supremo new! of civilization. Mr.
liemlrix, on tho contrary, sneers at
the idea much as the "Autocrat of
the Breakfast Table" does at "fresh
water colleges. " He thinks it is in
terior provincialism to agitate for
anythingofthekind. "Will England
consent to bimetallism, " asks Hen
drix, "if it will make her food cost
her more? And then answers his
own question by adding, "Thecause
of the Western farmer who wants
more for his wheat will not become j
the cause of his chief customer who
wants to get his wheat cheap. " He
seems to think that John Bull is
mainly a wheat bear, and that the
cost of the bread he eats is of para
mount importance to the price of
the cloth and general wares he
makes. It is as if the Western far
mer were more concerned about the
cost of clothes than the price of grain
The narrow and foolish view of the
single-standard goldite is clearly
shown by one sentence in this article
from the Brooklyn Congressman.
All we have to do with England,"
he savs. "is to get as much of her
gold us we can, and our surest way
to do that is to re-establish the con
fidence of the English investor in our
financial inteirritv. " What he wants
is to be able to place American stocks
and bonus in Uouuon on a good mar
gin. If the promotorscau do aturiv-
ing business never mind the Western
farmer. He is of no account. The
law of supply and demand willdo the
rest. There is fortune in placing the
debentures of a great corporation.
The millions who toil are beneath
consideration, as weighed against the
baker's dozen who "exploit.'
Mr. Head writes in refreshing con
trast to all thissort of twaddle. Al
though himself a member of theUpi
talistic class, he is strongly in favor
of increasing the volume o currency
as fast as the development of our
gold and silver mir.is will permit,
and by "our" is. - meant the whole
world, and not this country alone.
He contends that there is no over
produetiou of either of the precious
metals und that there is no danger of
monetary disturbenence from the ex
cessive production and coinage min
ing and minting or both gold and
silver. The depression of silver is en
tirely attributable, he contends, to
its demonetization, and not at all to
overproduction. But the key to the
entire Head article is found in the
almost causual remark: "In our
complex civilization all prosper or
suffer in common. " That is the se
cret of the universality of the pres
ent depression, lhe fixed income
classes are responsible for the dis
crimination against silver which be
gan in England, and in 1873 extend
to other countries including the
United States, That element of so
ciety thought they were gaining a
great advantage when they handi
capped the producing and industrial
classes. Time has shown that, as
Paul bluntly puts it, if one member
suffers all members suffer.
It cannot be denied that inter
national bimetallism would be the
easiest and most desirable solution
of the problem, and no doubt if Eng
land really favored it it could be
brought about without any serious
difficulty, but it would be illogical
and inconsiderate to assume that an
international monetary agreement
is the only solution of the problem.
On the contrary the feelers put out
by Senator Lodge and ex-Speaker
Reed in favor of bringing to bear the
pressure of commercial exchange in
favor of such an agreement must be
accepted as the premonitory symptons
of what may be expected. Mr. Head
and his class of bimetallists have
reached the stage of persuasion repre
sented in the story of the old man
pelting the apple-tree boy with sod.
By and by, if need Ik, the stone
throwing of the Lodge-Reed policy
will have to be adopted in some form

Better County Roads.

says: "A novel solution ot the prob
lem of better country roads is mak
ing headway in Ohio. It is proposed
that townshipsorcountiesissue bonds
with which to pay for the laying of
fcteel rails along the roads, upon
which to run either electric cars or

Prom the Jefferson City Tribune.
The United States is not the only
country suffering from a money stringency-
England, Germany, Austria,
Italy, Russia, and in fact nearly all
civilized governments outside of
France, are in the same dilemma.
Italy is verging on bankruptcy.
The great trouble with all govern
ments now confronted with a money
crisis is that the ready wealth is in
the hands of a few persons. When
the government of Egypt tottered
and fell, 3 per cent of the population
controlled all the wealth. The dis
paragement was not so great when
the Roman Empire sunk to rise no
more, but the same cause was re
sponsible. Other governments owe
their downfall to a similar condition
of affairs, but in spite of such warn
ings, France is the only government
that has profited by them.
To deal with our own f government
alone, we are not able to see why it
is that congress cannot enact laws
expressive of its confidence in the
people, just as readily as the repub
lic of France. Our government does
not trust the common people as does
the French government. When the
French republic wants a loan of money
it calls upon the people to raise the
same by subscription, aad in turn
the common people become the cred
itors of the government and each
individual feels that he is an import
ant part of it. The common people
of France are the bond-holders to
day. The government opens loan
offices and issues interest-bearing
bonds in small denominations, and
thus every one who has a small
amount of surplus money becomes a
creditor of the government.
In the United States quite a differ
ent policy is, pursued. When the
government wants money the secre
tary of Vne treasury gets down on his
Kueea to the money-lenders and bro
kers of New England and accepts
what they offer him. The bonds are
issued in the denomination of $1,000
each and not one person out of 1,000
ever sees a government bond. A few
men receive all the benefits of these
bonds while the common people are
accorded the privlige of paying inter
est and also the principal wnen it
falls due. The same policy is pur
sued in regard to state and nearly all
While we do not believe there
ever was a government on the
face of the earth so good as that of
the United States ot North America,
yet we may well profit by the mis
takes and the success of others. It
stands to reason that the French
policy of procuring loans is far super
ior to our system, especially in a re
publican form of government. The
average citizencannot invest in bonds
of the denomination of $1,000 each
Every sensible person is aware of
this i act. This is the very reason
there is such a prejudice against
bond-holders everywhere except
France. There the common citizens
themselves are bond-holders, while in
this country and most European
countries a tew individuals own such
securities. This is simply because
the law favors the wealthy class.
When a government combines with a
few wealthy persons to control the
money of the country, as well as its
credit, it is easy to understand how
a money stringency can be manufac
tured to order. As long as affairs
continue in their present shape in
this country we will have money
panics whenever Wall street wants
BLAND AND FKANCIS.
Ex-Governor Francis is undoubtedly
a clever gentlemen a man that any
one would like to have for a personal
friend. He as governor gave us
a clean administration, just as
thousands of gentlemen in the State
of Missouri are capable of doing.
He made St. Louis a good executive,
just as Mr.Valbridge is doing; but
any contention that he is a statesman
is ridiculous. He thoroughly under
stands the party machinery, can man
ipulate the wires with the best, and
can handle a pull for every cent it is
worth. He can engineer a boom for
himself or a friend, where no great
question of principle obtrudes, with
the same facility that he used to
pilot a bull or bear movement to. a
successful termination. His exper
ience as a speculator has made him
clear-sighted rather than far-sighted.
This education has placed him in the
front rank as a manipulator of con
ventions; but as yet in his public acts
or utterances, he has shown no pro
found knowledge of the principals of
the party to which he professes to be
devoted. His record as a formulator
of politics is yet to be made.
Men of the training of Mr. Francis
are apt to look upon the game of poli
tics very much as they do upon agame
of poker, and are surprised at the
folly of the man who is willing to
sacrifice his personal advatage to the
good of his country. It has always
been a matter of keen regret to the
Ex-Govenor that his native city in
1888 gave a majority against him of
over ten thousand and there was a
suspicion in 18J2that the Ex-Governor
would not have grieved beyond
comforting, had the majority against
Governor Stone reached the same, or
a larger figure. As an office broker
the Ex-Governor is as fine as silk,
but Senator Vest's opinion that his
commissions are out of all proportion
to the value of his services is the one
generally entertained by the people
of this State.
When we come to examine Mr.
Bland's career the man with whom
the Ex-Governor is contrasted we
find a plain, honest, sincere, hard
working man, whom the people of
this State love and trust for bis
straightforward, unswerving integ
rity. Mr. Bland always places
principle before policy. We have
never heard of his native town roll
ing up immense majorities 'against
him. Ironton Register. .
