IN THE INTEREST OF THK 1'EOPLE AND THE REPUBLICAN" PARTY.
ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE.

We're Getting Tired.
There is sometimes a cause of
wonderment in the minds of many
people wliat party organisations,
party enthusiasm, indeed, govern
ment is for. The ruuk and hlo
nro whooped up nt election times,
they are asked to jive, and do
give, they are fired with enthusi
asm by orators, and the fires are
put out by long winded sermous
of would-be orators; they inarch
and parade and then they vote.
The peoplo they vole for draw
..their-- salari.. uomiuuSjog'' the
first day of the first month of
their term, and then these pa
triots do what 16 earn the monoy
of the people which is paid them?
nothing. Most of their lnno is
spent in goinfi around to caucuses
or meetings to re-elect themselves
or their friends. Time is spent
in n.aking and unmaking politi
cal combinations, and deputies
are hired by the peoplo to do the
Wotk which the chiels are sup
posed to be elected for.
The irouble is not more than
twenty-live per cent, of the taxes
paid by the people should ba
liberal compensation for the
work in their behalf actually per
formed; and. the question arisos
whether it might not be better to
have two eludes of ollicial:
drones whom the people elect
and bees hired in the open mar
ket at the lowest price obtainable
for ood service, just as other
business limn and corporations
hire their employes.
Those thoughts are more or
less provoked by t lie contest for
republican supremacy now gc ing
on at Washington. Mr. Kerens
was not elected national commit
teeman to keep smith or Jones
in office, nor was Mr. A kins
elected chairman ot the state
committee to put them out. And
yet that seems to bo the Ultima
Thulo of their endeavor just at
this moment. If the Review were
permitted to suggest to the presi
dent a method of settling the
dispute it would have t lie slaio
committee called together at St
Louis, not oue or two thousand
miles from Missouri, and to that
meeting it would call in the mem
bers of congress and defeated
candidates, also the national com
mitteeman. It would cive them
each one vote. A hearing of
every candidate would be had and
the majority vote upon eveiy
candidate for postmaster or other
Federal position would ho certi
fied to tho president nnd depart
ments at Washington, and . thus
the controversy would be fought
out and ended -where it ought to
be in Missoui t
There is a grea future for the
republican party just ahead.
Republican Missouri is not only
a possibility but a strong proba
bility. It cannot bo obtained by
scrapping at Washington over
piddling place. But the array
must be organised by platoons,
by sip. ads, by brigades, and the
rank and Hie must gain conti
dence in its leaders. They are
not doing it very fast just now!
Tho work of the party is right at
han't to bo done and the getting
of oliice and supremacy of lead
ers is being discussed! The
truth of tho matter is tho repub
licans of Missouri don't want any
supremacy. It has for years dis
placed regularly every leader who
thought ho was "it," and if those
fellows at Washington don't look
out this great, strong enthusias
tic army of Missouri republicans
will knock out every fellow en
gaged in the scramble the first
opportunity it gets, lk-ttercome
home, boys, and settle your dif
ferences in Missouri, put the
workers in office, and organize
for the next campaign. Hotter
put your ear to the ground and
listen. ''I'm tellin' yo', honey."

In conversation with a leading
republican the other day we wero
discussing the matter of giving
out public positions in Missouri,
and we agreed that tho republi
can party was bigger than any
one or any dozen men, and that
tho will of the people should be
the governing power in all mat
ters of public interest. However,
if one man is to Ire turned down
just to give place for another
equally as bad, if both are bad,
then tho people's choice is not in
it. If we are going to let local
republicanism have Its proper
weight then do away with the
eudorreinent of any of the state
or national committeemen. Let
the people indicate plainly what
they want by petition in the mat
tor of these minor appointments,
and then let our president or
bead of tho proper department
decide from petition and what he
can find out by investigation.

thought it necessary. Wo are no
great stickler for Korensorahyone

with a new tr.an who belongs
neither to the Filley or Kerens
faction, but we hare not been
able to seo any very great objec
tionable feature to Kerens' policy

Kerens will not be governed by
congressmen, senators, state or
county committees in his endorse
ments for post offices, etc. They
say ho looks out only for his
frieuds. This is nothing more
than any man ought to do. Show
us a man that will not favor his
friends, his closest friends, and
we will show you a man who is
either a foo! or an idiot. Of
course, the endorsement of these
great men should not be governed
by prejudice or spite, and we
have not heard Mr. Kerens ac
cused of either. We admire the
stand Mr. Kerens took in ?his
matter at the beginning of the
squabble. Kerens was elected by
the national convention, and why
not wait till the next natioual con
vention, and then have him dis
placed if ho has abused his en
dorsement power, and not cause
so much trouble now?
