himself boom -d by the rural Dem
ocratic press for Congress. We do
not know Mr. Fort personally but we
do k low that his chances for Congress
are very slim.
Congress nan Kancy wants the Gov
ernment to maku St. I-Vamds River a
navigable stream. (Jood for Mr.
Kancy. Good for Southeast Missouri
and jjood for the voters who lected
Itaney to Congress.
If Congressman Mozley sucetreds in
getting a bill through Congress to
establish a Federal Court in South
east Missouri that court will be
established in Cape Girardeau or we
will know the reason why. Cape Gir
ardeau is the metropolis of Southeast
Missouri and if there is any milk in
the cocoanut Capo Girardeau is justly
entitled to it.
Congressman Mozley is preparing a
bill to introduce in Congress for the
establishment of a Government build
ing at Dexter for the United States
Court. If Mr. Mozley names Dexter
in his bill ho will make a mistake. If
we km to have a Federal Court
established in Southeast Missouri
Cape Girardeau is the citj for the
location of the court.
Howeil county is faring well with
the Republican Congivss. Congress
man Mozley has appointed a West
Plains man as his private seeivtary
and Sergeant-at-Arms I!u.scll has ap
pointed a Willow Springs man as his
assisstant. Howell is a Democratic
county, but she is hogging all the hit
jobs just the same.
The apple crop of Missouri this year
ivached almost 4.(HH.iHK) barrels,
which at 75 cents jier barrel, alxmi the
average for fruit alone, brought the
farmers and horticulturists of the
state not less than :!.IXKM00 Now
Vork. Pennsylvania and Ohio are the
only state, which show ;i larger yield
than our own.
The greatness of Missouri is Iieing
recognized in all sections of the coun
try. Her ability to oast off the ISour
bon yoke has done much toward put
ting the State in a more favorable
light ltefore the world. Missouri has
always been a great State, and under
Democratic rule has ln-eii just as tol
erant as any northern State. Free
SH-ech has always prevailed. Politi
cal speakers were always given as
much liberty of sKi-ch as in the State
of Massachusetts. This, of course,
was not generally known by jieople
living outside of Missouri. The elec
tion last year, however, has helped to
establish this great truth, and thous
ands are now seeking Missouri who
formerly were afraid to come here.
Withfn the next ten years Missouri
will show marvelous development.

it is well known, and
would lie so to-day if he did
oilico under a sound money
: but he now pretends, at
least, to have abandoned his former
views in that i-espect. The next
Democratic National Convention will
take advanced ground against free
coinage, he declares, and the ques
tion is simply one of accepting
the inevitable in a calm and harmon
ious way. So far, so good, but ho
does not stop there. He presents
another idea, and it exposes the kinky
head of an African in the wood-pile.
The State bank tax which makes wild
cat currency impossible is unconstitu
tional, he proclaims, and to this is
added an offer on his part to Ik one
of a numlior of Georgians to organize
a State bank and issue notes for cir
culation to test the question lieforo
the Supreme Court, feoling sure that
the legality of such action would be
affirmed by that tribunal.
This is intended, manifestly, to pla
cate the free coiners by pointing out
to them a Democratic way of obtain
ing all the cheap money they want. It
is well understood that a large ma
jority of these misguided people arc
simply inflationists, and do not care
what form the inflation takes so long
as it brings more currency of some
kind. -They are not interested in silver
because it is silver,but only because it
is the cheapest existing sort of money.
State bank notes would answer their
purpose just as well: and Mr. Smith
practically tells them that limy have
the right to help themselves bv that
expedient, without bothering about
silver. He does not speak exclusively
for himself in this matter. Many oth
er leading Democrats- the most of
them in the West and South- favor
the revival of the old State bank sys
tem. The repeal of the tax which
crushed that system and keeps it
crushed was demanded in the last
Democratic national platform, and
has been recommended by Cleveland
and Carlisle. Iterein lies one of the
iravest of financial perils. An in
crease ol currency in tlio snaiie 01
State bank notes issued under the
lilieral conditions to lie expected in
most of the States woulu Ik- worse
than free silver. Th country knows
bv bitter exix-riem-e what that order
of money means. Ite introduction would
quickly upset all values and bring
distress upon all classes: and overy
appearance of a tendency in that
calamitous direction should be con
demned and opposed by all good citi

l-mo-mt Klrrletl at the Louisville
IMstrlct special Klcrllon.
LovisvH.l.K, Ky.. Decern liei' 7. The
Democrats won to-day in the special
election in tint Forty -eight Legislative
District, sending A. J. Carroll to the
Legislature by a majority of 4tS over
Charles A. Mlatz. the Republican
nominee. As a result, the Kentucky
Legislature is left with a tie on joint
ballot, and the ballotting for a United
States Senator to succeed Senator
ISlackborne is likely to result in a
deadlock. On joint ballot the Repub
licans and Democrats will have sixty
eight votes each and the Populists
two. and it is pretty well assiuvd that
the Populist vote will split.
The election was a hotly contested
one. Carroll had refused his certifi
cate after the Novemltor election lo
causc of the secret withdrawal of
Shrove, the Republican candidate.
Carroll, who is ox-Speaker of the
House declared he coutd not accept an
election carrying with it the least sus
picion of fraud, and demanded a sieo
ial election. The A. P. A. .element
figured slightly in the day's ballotting.
and several lights resulted, although
no 011 was seriously injured. .John
Whalon. the Democratic leader in the
district, got into trouble at one of the
voting places, and was unceremon
iously pitched into the street, escap
ing, however, without injury. The
police rcsponed to several riot calls,
but had no difficulty in suppressing

Tin- Outlook for Free Silver Is

Lebaxox. Mo., December 7. The
statement of a St. Louis paper that
Hou. K. 1'. Bland had returned from
hi. Southern trip "disheartened and
discouraged over the pros)eets of a
Democratic success and the triumph of
five silver" is without, the slightest
foundation. In fact, he is more i-n-eonraed
than ever lje foils ver the
outlook. The condition of harmony
brou'Iil about in Missouri, he says,
means success, and the strengthening
of the silver cause in other State. Mr.

National Convention means more now
than it did in 1S64. The Convention
of 1W4 held in Baltimore was called
Union v onvention sum not sinctiv a
Republican Convention. The call war
addressed to those who "desire tut
unconditional maintenance of tin
Union, the supremacy of the Consti
tution, the complete suppression of th
existing rebellion.' and the lirst res
olution of the platform declared that.
laying aside all differences of polit
cal opinion, we pietige ourselves at
Laionmen. an una toil ty a common
sentiment, and aiming at a cummin,
object, to do everything in our powci
to aid tho Government,- etc. Ihe
object of holding the Convention in
Baltimore was to strengthen the UnioL
cause in the border States, then an
object of great interest to the Govern
ment. Manv war Democrats took
part in the Convention, and were ex
pected to vote for the ticket, which
had a war Democrat on it, for the
second office, although, of course
laost of those in the Onvention anu
who supported the ticket were Repub
licans. The selection of St. Louis as the
meeting-place of the Convention oi
lSitl. has a profound and lasting sig
nificance. It is a recognition of the
fact made plain by the recent elections
that the geographical lino erected by
Tdxas annexation and made hard and
fast by the Kansas conflict has at last
dropped out of politics. The Repub
lican party, forced by the issue which
brought it into Iieing and by the con
vulson which that issuo caused, to lie
a sectional organization lor nearly
forty years, has now broadened and
developed into national proportions.
AH the vote i-eoeived by the lirst Re
publican Speaker and all the ballots
cast in th Fdeotorial College for tho
first Republican President were from
the free States, and, practically speak
ing, from the same region has come
all '.ho strength of the Republican
party ever since until ly4 and IH'.lo,
except in the temporary and artificial
conditions of the reconstruction peri
od. But now Mason and Dixon's
line and a parallel of Uti-.Ttl havo
ceased to lie political boundaries and
have liecome mere geographical des
ignations. The sidid South has betm
abolished. Freed from the obstruc
tions by which its growth was restrict
ed, the Republican party has crossed
into a new field, and has started out
on larger and grander conquests than
it has yet achieved.- Globe-Democrat.
