Thomas L. Mauldin.who thanked
the people for their cordiality
and paid a high tribute to the
city by the river.
Touching upon water trans
portation, Mr. Mauldin said the

ocean liners passing each other
with full steam ahead at any
point between St. Louis and the
A. II. Foote, who spoke on
"The Cape Territory and Cred
its," said St. Loui3 is proud of
the fact that Southeast Missouri
counties and cities gained more
in population than any other
section of the state, drawing
good people from practically
every state in the Union and en
listing capital to a degree that
has never in past year3 been ex
celled. Advantages oE St. Louis.
"Your progress and natural
advantages are attracting the
attention of many sections,"
said Mr. Foote. "Mercantile
agencies of our country, who
keep in close touch with finan
cial and credit questions, with
business growth and general
development and with failures,
state that the number of inquir
ies on merchants in Southeast
Missouri indicate the utmost
confidence in you."
H. B. Gordon, vice president
of the Norvell-Shapleigh Hard
ware Company, spoke at length
on the Advantages of St. Louis
as a wholesale market, calling
attention to the many lines in
which St. Louis has to offer to
the City of Cape Girardeau and
Southeastern Missouri. He also
spoke of the frienship of St
Louisans toward Cape Gir
ardeau and its people. He called
attention to the large percentage
of the state taxes paid by the
City of St. Louis, which go to
support state institutions, nor
mal schoo!s,good roads and other
public institutions.and concluded
with a cordial invitation to those
present to visit St. Louis often-
er, know her people better and
see the advantages St. Louis has
Flint Garrison representing
the St. Louis Salesmanagers'
Association, spoke on Cape Gir
ardeau and St. Louis. He says:
"St. Louis is not only the clos
est and therefore the natural
friend of Cape Girardeau, but
in all the history of trade rela
tions between the two cities,
there ha3 been manifested a re
markable spirit of co-operation
Lampkin Gives Statistics.
For the St. Louis Advertising
Men's League William Clendenin
stated that, in his opinion, Cape
Girardeau presented the best
advertising ca3o of any city of
its size in Missouri. He referred
especially to the splendid civic
spirit of the little city on the
big river, called attention to the
interest of St Louis and the St.
Louis newspapers in all matters
of municipal improvement, and
advised that Cape Girardeau
keep St Louis posted on what 13
going on here.
E. P. Lampkin gave fifteen
reasons why St Louis i3 the in
evitable and ultimate industrial
capital of the continent. He
mentioned the city's twenty
seven railroads, it3 advantage of
position at the confluence of the
two greatest rivers of the conti
nent, and spoke of the parks and
homes. "St. Louis manufac
tures $2000 worth of goods per
minute," said Mr. Lampkin, for
every .working day of the year,
and 157 pairs of shoes per min
ute. "St. Louis is the greatest cen
ter for the manufacture of trunks
in the world, and produces one
trunk per minute for every
working day in the year. It sold
in 1910 over $70,000,000 worth
of dry goods, over $23,000,000
worth of drugs, over $14,000,000
worth of clothing. She has the
largest drug houses in the United
States, leads all other cities in
hardware and woodenware, and
has the largest houses in the
world in these respective lines.
"St Loui3 makes more street
cars than any other city in the
world; manufactures more chairs
than any other city in the world,
makes more crackers, more sad
dlery, more harness, and more
stoves and ranges.
"St. Louis distributes more
agricultural impliments than any
other city in the world, and it is
the greatest fur market in the
country. Fur buyers for the
greatest houses in London, Ber
lin, Pari3 and New York attend
the auction fur sales held three
times weekly in St. Louis."

Life imprisonment on a

meted out to Jas. B. McNamara,
which is the penalty he will pay

sentenced to serve fifteen years

uilty to participation in the
Llewellyn Iron Works Explosion
on the day following the Times
isastcr. Both men will be kept
in Ijos Angeles until they ap
pear before the Federal grand
jury which is to begin a nation
wide inquiry into the alleged
dynamiters' organization, which
s thought will include labor of
ficials higher up. The prisoners
faced the sentences bravely, al
though tears came to the eyes of
.las. B. Jno. J., the elder of the
brothers, was calm but weak,
and almost feinted while sent
ence was being passed upon him.
The confession of the McNa
mara brothers, charged with the
blowing up of the Los Angeles
Times building, came as a sur
prise to the country. That the
deed was an unscrupulous one
no one who has followed the case
will deny; that the case will yet
bring to light a combined plot
on the part of designing persons
to run the country by brute force
is now the common version of
the people. Not only does it
show that the McNamara broth
ers were seized by a desire to
win a point at all hazards, but it
shows thar the main instigators
of the crime, the capitalists who
sought to hold labor in check,
had resorted to "unfair methods
in gaining the desired results,
viz, restrain the working class
from gaining ground that would
eventually place capitol on a
more equal basis with labor.
Unfortunately for the labor
unions of the country, which are
cast on a high plain, this episode
has worked the greatest hard
ship. In every society or organi
zation there frequently creeps in
men who are of high-struug na
tures and unreliable as members,
which in our opinion should not
be charged against the best ele
ment of organized workingmen
of this country. In the forma
tion of great, powerful commer
cial organizations men of low
natures are sometimes put to the
helm, whereby the poorer ele
ment are forced to submit to
their proposals or seek other
avenues of existence. In the
Los Angeles cases thi3 state of
affairs seemed to exist. The
McNamara confession in no way
vindicates Otis and hi3 followers
who should at least share in the
blot that ha3 crept over the
United States, and when the
public points to the crime, that
broadmindedness so vital in im
portant dicisions should assert
itself and an equal dose of ridi
cule be placed at the door of
heartless capitol and labor. In
conclusion it might be appropri
ate to add that the most serious
blunder Union Labor has ever
made was in letting the Socialists
' put one over" on them by plac
ing the future of the honest
workingmen of this country in
the hands of Samuel Gompers.
