Tlie Hon. Springstun, ilh his ora

One can easily imagine this artful pub

Now as to the facts about Columbia's
There: is not a cIeaner-.'own a the
country than Columbia. "Such is the
opinion of officials, business men, and
residents of this city.
Police admit that there is some sort
of concoction made of Jamaca ginger be
ing used here to a limited extent. "Jake",
as it is called, is- now common every
where as the successor of John Barley
corn. There is no taw to prevent its
sa!: yet the quantity used here is much
smaller than roost towns according tolhe
police. Two drunks have been found
in Columbia since, last winter, and con
victions resulted in both case.
"If Mr. Springstun is making state
ments of that kind he is saying things be
knows to be absolutely false," said J. F.
Whilesides chief of police. "There is
not a town in lire country the site of
Columbia that is anywhere near as clean
in every respect. Thrrs Js no whisky
here, and I know that none 1s being
sold. Anyone nuking statements like
that is doing so to spite the town or the
University, either of which be may have
a grudge against."
"HIS SIATCMEm mDicvioos"
"I don't know Springstun," said Boyle
?. Clark, city attorney. "I don't know
viher- he could have gotten hi informa

air so ridiculnus and far from the truth
as rot to irerit an answer."
There is not a cleaner or more moral
atmosphere in any town in the stale
than found in Columbia," ay Ceorge

assessed valuation of nothing to a total
valuation of $8,700, Three other busi

This paper, a laboratory product of
the Missouri School of Journalism,

a 6-column, 4-pagc daily, printed
by a Columbia publishing boos

its first printing on the new Du
