RUSSELL AIDS THE SHOUT LINES.
Congressman Russell in making a plea in Congress for the Government
to take over the short-line railroads, presented an argument that would be
difficult to answer. In replying to those representatives who have oppos
ed government control of the small lines because they are not big money
makers, Mr. Russell said there were postoffices in every state and rural
nutes in every township that, were maintained at an annual loss to the
Just as Congressman Russell stated, Uncle Sam is expected to give the
V jop!e service, and he must lose money in some instances to do so, it is
money well spent.
' There are no doubt as many short line railroads in Southeast Missouri as
in any Congressional distritc in the United "States, and Mr. Russell knows
that if the government takes over the great money making lines and
eliminate competition among these the small loud is threatened with
It is only fair thai the Government assume control of them all, if it takes
charge of any, To do otherwise wouldmean to bestow special favors upon
some and embarrass others.
The C. G. X. is a Southeast Missouri road, for instance, that needs the as
sistance f the Government. It passes through a rich section of the state,
which is without adequate means of transportation. The people in these
counties need a railroad, but if the Government refuses to assist the weak,
this railroad may be compelled to suspend operation.
Bv compelling the short lines to shift for themselves and at the same time
abolishing competition among tne
ni'iit virtually puts the
SENATOR STONE OUTPOINTS FOLK.
Senator Stone has made the first touchdown in his 1021 contest with
Joe Folk for Un iced States Senator Mr. Folk was rccentlv brought to
St. I.ouis by his tinaneial friends and given a position with an annual salary
of $12,.VK). It was proposed that he fight the bridge monopoly in that city
until time to run for Senator, and Mr. Fo!k, realizing that the work would
give him an excellent opportunity to
to the program.
Upon Mr. Folk's retain to St. Louis he announced through the newspa
pers that he would undertake to abolish the bridge arbitrary. For the bene
tt of those who are not familiar with the bridge monopoly in St Louis, we
make this brief explanation:
Thirteen rai'.roads own the Wiggins Ferry Co., which carries freight from
Si. Louis to V.iifi .Si. Louis ami vice verse by the river. The Wiggins Ferry
(.'., al.-o owns the railway terminals and the Terminal Railway bridge. And
tin interests which control the Wiggins Ferry Co., the thirteen railways
Hud the Terminal bridge, own the
tompetition. these thirteen railroads
two bridge..; at a nominal charge, while
this combine are compelled to pay such an cxorbitanl freight rate to run ed by her husband. The permission
over these bridges that they cannot doir.pete with the Terminal trains in J was grant jd at the request of the wid
frcight rales. ' jo.v wh; claimed she could receive

combine. The dissolution of the blidge and terminal nionoply wouid bring j Mrs. Uosie Koeppel. widow of Xick
joy to every voter in St. Louis. Mr. Folk, of course, knows this, and by Kcr-pprl, who died last Friday morn-
undertaking the task he immediately
eiid run against Senator Stone in 1921.
While Mr. Folk was outlining his program in the newspapers Senator
Stone drafted a bill, with the approval of Secielary McAdoo, turning the
free bridge at St. Louis over to th" government for the accommodation of
trains running in and out of St. Loui. His bill also contained a clause.
K:"ing the lailmads that operate over the free bridge the right to use the
-Tormina' Railway's terminals on both sides of the river.
In other words. Senator Stone has

THE PENALTY OF CARRYING A GUN.
Th conviction of John R. Parmenter on the charge of murdering Aibert
Denort ir! s should serve as a lesson to men who carry deadly weapons. Had
Parmenter been unarmed at the time of the shooting, both men would have
e(-n alive today. But he went forth armed and the penalty for his mis
ake is eighteen years in the State penitentiary.
John IV.rmentpr measures up to th average man, and up to the time of
.ho killine. lie was e:0n.dder. d a kii.dly character and a good neighbor. There
"" nothing in his record of the past that evidenced a desire to slay. Those
who have known him longe.-t testified to his good name and all were of the
opinion that he wanted to obey the law.
But John Parmenter. for some unaccountable reason, carried a gun Ho
iray have feared thieves ami he. may have only intended to protect him
self from a had dog. But he was armed, and that was the tragedy of- two
lives. Albert Demortiers is dead and John Parmenter must go to prison.
Gun toting is a menacing practice and it must be curbed. The lawpass
ed at the last session of the Missouuri Legislature, making gun toting a
crime punishable by death. should not have be?n vetoed by he Gover
r. It is. a law that .should W on the statute books in every state. Un
til men unauthorized to carry deadly weapons are disarmed there will al
ways be murders and civilization will continue to be ambushed.

PITIFUL ST. LOUIS.
In the days of old when pioneers
S". luU watf was the center of commerce of the entire Mississippi Valley.
Nti city between the Alleghanies and the Pacific ocean could compete com
nfitially with St. Louis in any degree.
For many years afterwards previous to the Civil War it "was the center
it the navigation interests of the Mississippi Valley. Chicago was not on
tr map. Even 'after the war individual enterprise maintained the domi
nance" of transportation. The natural course wa-; by' the river to the gulf.
Railroads, by superior tinancial and intellectual ability obtained control
and the sggressiveness of Chicago forged to the front. Notwithstanding
tlie fact that even today St. Ixmis is one of the great terminal centers of
the Ur.iU'd States, it has permitted its enormous natural advantage by way
of water to become unused. v
Who is to blame? The natural advantage cf St. Louis has been sacrificed
by a seltishness and narrowness of its own public men. The men of money
"have sought other outlets for their investments, and they have deferred
to New York as a gateway for the industry and products through railway
transportations instead of following the natural course bv water.
louuj me pjouc press ana public
inn instead ot taking hold of the situation with a strong and masteiful
hand, and of being w illing to invest personal money to make seed," they
make a pitiful .appeal to the national administration to help them out and
t$ what they, in their own interest, should r.ccomp!ib.
cut of business.
Therefore to throttle;

railroads that are not a part of

abolished the bridge arbitiary in St.

too poor to give any monev. and he!

auction yesterday. A woman, who de
rives her livelihood from the sale of
eggs and chickens donated a number
of cans of fruit.. She offered to give
several chickens, but owing to the
government's orders the fowl could
not be accepted and sold aat this time.
