' The low market price of Wheat has

altogether in favor of feeding Wheat

is 7 per cent heavier per bushel than

With wheat at 40 or even 50 cents,
it seems clear that it is best to make
the grain walk off on its four feet in
the shape of stock. This is equally
true as to corn, but at present corn
put on the market brings a fair re
turn, which is not the case with the
Wheat sold for cash.
It is amusing to recall the recently
attempted boycott that was insti
tuted against the KtwgftoY. Petl'
tions were circulated and attempts
were made to influence our subscrib
ers to quit the paper but it was no
go. Not a single subscriber did we
lose. The Nkwshoy s renders are
the honest) substantial citizens of
the county, and they Were not willing
to quit a newspaper just because it
had discharged a duty which it owed
to the people. Our patrons are the
bone and sinew of the county. They
may not all be able to wear a white
shirt and A standing collar every duy
in the week, and have a batch of
notes and mortgages sticking out of
their hip pockets, but they are able
to pay for a newspaper in advance,
and they don't feci like quitting that
paper because 'it stoutly opposes that
which is wrong. Ho on with your
boycott, gentlemen. It is a great
advertisement for us, and we ap
Hon. Marsh AesoU met Mr. Llv-
hgston in joint debate at Poplar
Bluff last Saturday evening. Mr.
Livingston had the first inning and
occupied much the greater portion of
the time, wearying the people ont
with vague thorizing. Mr. Arnold
put in what time was left him with
a statement of fact, which knocked
the other's theories clean out of
court. By agreement, and very pro
perly, no personalities were indulged
iu. Mr. Arnold spoke again at night,
but Mr. Livingston had had enough,
and quit the field.
HIS 0VX DEITTY.
In addition to the $3.54 kt day
which the law allows Mr. Leftwich
tor cUJ working clays in tlie year our
county court allowed him $1.28 jier
dav extra for acting as his own de
puty. As his whole time is prcsum
ed by law to be paid for by his legal
salary, the question arises, where did
he find time to act as his own deputy
and what was this deputy's principal
doing meanwhile? Or is it pretend
lid that he worked more than ten
hours a day for 313 days of anyycar?
The work is routine work, purely
clerical, requires no brain -power to
speak of, and is handsomely paid at
the legal rate. How many of the
tax-payersof thiscounty haveeleared
S3. 54 per day in recent or any years?
How many of them, working perhaps
sixteen hours per day. have earned
even as much as the 1.28 per day
allowed by the court to Mr. Left
wich iu violation of a mandatory
law? Where in our statutes is the
authority given to any county court
to donate to any eountyotticial a sum
in excess of his salary. There's no
such authority given. The tax-payers
of Scott county are not sufficient
ly wealthy to stand such extrava
gance, while at the same time they
drag through roads hub deep in mud
and the court wrangles over the pur
chase of the last new shovel.

The electricians who are busy har
nessing Niagara and other waterfalls
will get gloriously left if the idea of
a celebrated French chemist comes
to any good. His idea is, in short,
that it is possible to sink a shaft to
a depth of 12.000 to 15.000 feet,
where water will be found at a tem
perature high enough to generate
unlimited power at the surface. The
sole expense (a big one) would be
the fcinking of the shaft. The engin
eering difficulties in the way are not
insuperable. Coal will be a back
number one of these days.
Of the total exports of the United
States, England takesone half. That
is, she takes as much as all the rest
of the world put together. This year
our imports from England have not
amounted to one-quarter of our ex
ports thither, and not once in six
years have they amounted to one
half. What we send her is mostly
food products and raw material that
arc raised by our farmers, and as
the farmer is the basis of all our
wealth it is only fair that he should
receive most benefit from our export
trade. Where our manufactures are
superior to those of England, she
dots not hesitate to buy from us,
and she puts no protective duties in
our way. We should be able to take
more English goods in exchange for
our food products than we now do,
and with the development of her re
sources in the East and the keen com
petion elsewhere for her trade, it
will become more and more necessary
that we should do so without placing

Froth the Jefferson City Tribune.
From present indications the most
important matter the general assem
bly of Missouri will have to consider
next winter will be a revision of the
laws in regard to criminal costs. Men
who expect to come to the legislature
ought to tin) roughly inform them
selves on all matters relating to this
subject. There will be a very large
deficit to provide for, in spite of the
fact that $500,000 was appropriated
by the last legislature. If the pres
ent laws are continued four years
longer the state will pay more money
for criminal costs than for support of
the public schools.
In order to accomplish any practi
cal changes the entire criminal laws
of the state must be revised. As
they now exist there is no possible
means of reducing criminal costs.
Courts arc powerless to force persons
charged with crime to go to trial
until it-suits their own convenience.
No mutter how unprovoked a murder
a man mav commit, if he possesses
enough means to employ a lawyer he
can defy justice from one year to
several vears. There is no reason in
the world why such laws should be
maintained. The defense of criminals
now consists chiefly of obtaining continuances.
Take the case of Arthur Duestrow,
the St Louis criminal who murdered
his wife and baby, for example. He
possesses enough means to employ a
good lawyer, aud, although he was
indicted months ago, more than a
year will yet elapse before his case

The real practice of criminal law
in this state consists mainly of se
curing continuances until the witnes
ses for the prosecution are scattered
aud the public has ceased to remem
ber the crime. Every continuance
means additional costs for the tax
payers to foot and lessens the chance
The laws ought to be changed so as
to compel a speedy execution of jus'
tice. mere is no reason why the
courts should be so handicapped as to
allow criminal lawyers to dictate
their own terms. And another thing:
Provisions should be made for the
election of circuit attorneys and the
salary should be fixed high enough to
secure good talent. As a class, the
prosecuting attorneys of the state
arc no match for the criminal law
yers. They are poorly paid and the
laws have been so juggled in the iu
terests of the criminal class that
everything is against them.
The people ought to question every
candidate for the legislature as to
his views in regard to a revision of
the criminal laws so as to correct
abuses and cut down the enormous
and useless expenses. A man need
not be a lawyer in order to under
stand this matter. There is not s
county in the state where criminals
have not defied justice and stacked
up costs for people to pay. Any man
possessed of common-sense can read

There is no desire on the part of
the public to convict persons of crimes
they did not commit, but there is i
strong sentiment in favor of com pell
ing persons regarding whose guilt
there is no question of being forced
to go to trial within a reasonable
me. And a reasonable time docs
not mean one, two or a half a dozen
yours. Law-abiding citizens, who in
the end must pay the enormous cost
bills, have some rights as well as
persons who commit crimes.
w e do not Deiieve that there is a
circuit judge in the state of Missouri
who would permit an innocent per
son to be convicted of crime. It
would be perfectly safe for the legis
lature to give trial judges discretion
ary power in the matter of granting
continuances. Usually they are more
or loss familiar with the affairs and
the people of their circuit, and they
are men who can safely be trusted.
Hut this is a subject that no single

The Protection Bogie Man.
From the Kansas City Times.
The bugaboo which has been held
up before the public that the repeal
of the iniquitous McKinley law would
be followed by an enormous advance
in the price of sugar has proved a
myth. There has been no advance in
the price of sugar, and there will be
no change in the value of that com
modity except such as natural laws of
supply and demand may create. Ihe
free breakfast table is freer than
ever, for the reason that the exces
sive tax on china. 6poons, cutlery,
earthenware and glassware has been
reduced to a revenue basis, with in
cidental protection. The bogie man
is a bogus apparition. He has neither
spurs nor carbine. He is harmless.
"There has been no advance in the
price of sugar, even to the extent of
a nickel on a million pounds, since
the new tariff law went into effect,"
said Mr. J. M. Nave, of the McCord
Nave Mercantile company, to a re
porter of The Times yesterday. "The
retailers have made the trifling ad
vance during the canning and fruit
preserving season this year that they
made last year and make every year.
It is a logical consequence of an ex
traordinary demand. But the tariff
legislation had nothing to with it,
direct or remote. There has been no
increase to the wholesale purchasers,
whether the demand is for English,,
Scotch, German or domestic product.

tracted session of Congress impaired

and are obliged to pay the tax which
the new law provides from the bonus
the McKinley law afforded them. It
is an expensive change to them, but
not such a one as will cripple the in
dustry. The American sugar refin
ers can compete with and conquer
the world. The difference is that now
they have to be content with the fair
profits of a legitimate business. The
people will no longer be plundered
for their benefit.
It having thus been shown that
there has been no advance in the
price of sugar, it is easy to ascertain
the exact advance of the new sugar
schedule to the people. Under the
McKinley law a bounty of two cents
a pound was paid to sugar producers.
That bounty amounted in the aggre
gate to $12,000,000 last year. The
sugar refiners got a differential pro
tection of one-half a cent a pound,
which amounted last year to 820,000
000. Of this sum not a dollar went
into the Treasury, though the people
paid it in the shape of taxes on their
sugar. The tax on the food of the
people is released absolutely. On
the other hand, the new tax will pro
duce to the Treasury $43,000,000 an
nually, and, as there is no advance
in the price of sugar, this is a clear
gain. Adding the three sums togeth
er and the total is $77,000,000, which
is the actual gain to the people from
the change in the tax law in the mat
ter of sugar.
