open imposition upon the people.
to think that they believe what
ever la Democratic (by our leglsla

would be well for the state Demo
cracy, If no defense were needed
for its record, for where is it not
vulnerable? The people have
been so well informed as to the do
nothing and do-wrong policy of
the legislature, the stubbornness
of the Governor, tome of whose
appointees are dlsrcpuUble and
disgrace to him, yet who receiv
his open support, that Instead of
enumerating the weak points
they would rather learn of what
saving graces can be summoned In
defense of an administration that
must be acknowledged a failure
and a legislature that fizzled away

whether the legislature has been as

As the parly In power, controlling

and its Institutions, and therefore
In every sense rcsoniihlc for its

that Democracy kbould be on the

sourl will hold that party upon its
record, regardless of the fact Hint
It would prefer to shift the same.

what little good they do, the .slate

leaders then (who arc all dead,) ac

hand, judge the leaders Iu Demo

and not by records that are being
chronicled in every daily of the

The very Indications of the

Missouri ask, confident that in their

Under the Inviting laws of New
Jersey, trusts have been Incorpor
atcd with an aggregate capital
11500,000,000 since January tst
of the present year. New Jersey';
gain is the country's loss however
aud the fact becomes more evident
each mouth, that something must
be done to curtail the powers
trusts, thus decreasing the advan
tages to be gained by such combln
ations, aud maintaining opening to
Individual enterprises. The Rep
ublican parly Is not a friend
trust, iu the powers they arc now
using, and will prove this in the
next Congress. It is not In th
position of the Irresponsible inla
ority parly, and consequently is not
so profuse and rabid in its d eclat a
tions, nor vo vainly courting a pop
ular sympathy that is gained by
loud protestations which they are
not In a position to enact. Res-
ponsibillty adds conservation to the
exercise o( ntilhorily, aud the
Republican parly may he trusted
to deal with this evil when the
next Congress meets.
The Dcmocatlc dinner to be glv
en iu St. Louis this month, accord
lug to the calculation of some of
the state leaders, will not be graced
with any toast responses from the
old leaders of the party. The par

state jiolitlcs, should spend a part
of their evening iu emoting the
pipe of peace. As lo how Stephens
aud some of the county editors are
lo sup at the same tabic aud lay
aside their former acctisntlons, Is
not exactly self evident. Some
llscretlon must be used, not only
iu the invitations, but also as lo
seals, lest the Missouri dinner
prove n less harmonious affair, than

The long domination of any one
party in state or national politics
brings forward the machine ele
raent of that organization to be
its master aud dictate Its course.
Thla Is an acknowledged truth,
and no less Is It true, that ma
chine politics, necessarily becomes
corrupt, because not guided by the
general average morality of the
people, but bycorrupt ringslers,
who hesitate not to subserviate
wise legislation, fair administration
and just rulings, to openly cor
rupt plundering and squandering
of public moneys and offices. This
is true in Missouri and the people
have at last recognized It.
