the Game of Politics.
Special Correspondence:
Jefferson City, January 2C
Governor Major is, pre-eminently,
boss of the Democratic party
of Missouri now with no one to
hinder, none to make hirn afraid.
He has the party in his hands.
It's big chiefs are all at his feet.
His sceptre is stretched out to
those he favors, his spearmen
are ready to drive from his
t:irone room those on whom he
frowns. As plausible as tdausi-
bility itself he makes the men j
who gave him his job feel like i
they have everything coming j
while to his special friends!
everything is going. On the
surface of things Democratic;
there is harmony: underneath
the surface there is discord,
murmuring, strife. The seeth
ing caldron will make the atmos
phere hot when its fire breaKs
through the cracks in the lid.
Everything will go on smoothly
till the jobs are all given out,
when there'll be weeping and
wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Before his inauguration Gov
ernor Major talked about
simple Democratic inaugural,"
without pomp or display. He
would waik to the capitol, and
take the oath of office in a sim
pie, inexpensive manner. But
the bills for flowers, decorations,
musia, dance hall rent and re
freshments exceed $5000.00 aud
will be paid out of the State
treasury. Acres of carpet spread
in the legislative halls and de
partment offices will cost from
$6,000 to $7,500. Fine furniture
will run the bill up to $12,000 or
$15,000. Yet it is all simple
just plain and inexpensive Dem
ocratic simplicity! From an
abundance of -such simplicity
may the Lord deliver the tax
payers of Missouri.
The Democratic auditor esti
mates the revenues for 1913 and
1914 at ten millions. The Re
publican State administration
left a surplus in the treasury of
