Governor Stephens' Thanksgiving
message was good if it was borrowed.
Federal offices are not

Ed Uozier is going to be appointed
U. S. District Attorney for the East
ern District of Missouri.
Old man Filley is furnishing thun
der for the Democratic papers. Old
age is telling on the Old Dema rider.
The Filley men in this county are
not as numerous as they were a few
weeks ago. Patriotic Republicans
How things do change. A few years
ago the Democrats of thiscountry had
men of brains for their party leaders.
Now look at their leaders.
We are anxiously waiting for a
word from Ben Russell. Mr. Russell
has been one of the Filley henchmen
for many years. Will he follow De
Ole Man out of the Republican breast
The members of the Republican Sta'e
Committee are protesting against
Chauncey I. Filley, Chairman of that
Committee. De Ole Man has got his
foot in it this time. As a leader of the
Republican party in Missouri Mr.
Filley 's days are about numbered.
Democratic editors seem to be awful
uneasy about Mark Hanna. They
seem to want him elected to the Senate
and they are afraid he will not get
there. Why can't Mr. Hanna go to
the Senate? Hanna has more money
than Judge Bland ever had and there
will be some Democratic members of
the Ohio Legislature asanxious to sell
out as was the Populist candidate for
Judge of the Court of Appeals in this
State. Don't you believe that Hanna
can't be elected.
The Democrats are saying that no
body talked for or against silver in
.she recent canvass in Kansas, when
-Xhe Republicans carried the state
.Silver figured more prominently in
Kansas, though, than it did in New
York. Everybody knows that on the
financial question the State of New
York would always be Republican.
There is a very strong probability
now that the Republicans will be able
.to win Kansas on the silver issue
hereafter. Kansas has had enough of
Dunklin county has trotted out a
candidate for Congress. His name is
Hawkins. Ho is a lawyer and he is
said to be a runner from "away
back." In the race for Congress he
will be ' away back." He won't keep
in sight of the regular Democratic
race horses that will enter the race
The Democrats are not going to allow
Dunklin county an office. They don't
have to. Dunklin is solidly De no
cratic and there is no use in dividing
with a county that is sure to roll np
its big Democratic majority a' e x. y
election. At the Democratic Con
gressional convention Dunklin coun
ty's candidate's name wilt be Dennis.
Cairo Citizen: At a conference of
Republican members of the General
Assembly held iu Springfield Tuesday
it was agreed to hold a special session
of the Legislature to pass a new Sen
atorial apportionment. Ninety-four
of the 127 Republican members were
present. vA . Manner and Senator
Cullom were present and made
speeches urgiu the necessity of this
action. Tb 1 ill is to be -ncpared by
sixteen members of the Legislature,
six from Chicago and ten from the
State outside. Eight of these are to
be selected from the "machine" mem
bers, or those who supported the bill
presented at the last session, and
eight are to be chosen from the "anti
machine" members. It is U'lieved
that a fair apportionment can be made
tu supersede the Democratic gerry
mander. Following the example of some -f
its contemporaries, the daily Glob;-,
of Joplin, Mo., publishes a business
directory, in which appears the names
of the' paper's principal advertisers.
The Globe says:
Firms who are progressive and up-to-dale
are those whose names are to
be found in the advertising columns
of newspapers. They are, as a rule,
the safest people with whom to do
business, for they believe in the motto
of "live and let live." The increased
business, due to advertising, enables
such houses to prosper on small profits,
and therefore their patrons get the
benefit of lower prices and better bar
gains than can be gotten from the
firms that never advertise. This is
one of the ouject lessons that the pub
lic will learn wiih profit.
A disgruntled politician is the worst
of all the calamity howlers.
Bran n's Iconoclast thus alludes to
Dr. Guiteras and other medical ex
perts: The suspicion is growing that
Dr. Guiteras,' the government expert.
has a pint of yellow fever baccilli in
his cerebrum. He carries the plague
with him, just as. a man suffering with
mania-a-potu carries his cargo of
monkeys. Had he been called to see
Simon's wife's mother he would have
decided that she had a case of yellow
jack and spread a panic through all
Judea. Should he find a man suffer
ing with katzenjammer he would pro
nounce him a "suspect." As Barney
Gibbs says, all the yellow fever pa
tients Guiteras discovered during his
tour of South Texas were up "hunt
ing a drink or a job" ere this peri
patetic expert was well out of town,
Those "experts" mak a soul aweary,
An insanity expert thinks everybody
crazy but himself, while a yellow fever
expert would isolate a case of cucum
ber colic. What the South needs to
do is to quarantine against these spe
A Short Sad Story.
Had 1 oley's Honey and Tar been

K. A. Uozier on Filler.
"I have no desire, " said Mr. Rozier,
"to undertake the washing of dirty
linen in the Republican ranks, but if
I did, Filley's linen would take a
whole year's work.
" llley talks of his devotion to the
Republicans and declares himself a
stayer. In the Minneapolis conven
tion he openly declared ho would take
a rest and that 10,000 Missouri Re
publicans would take a rest with him.
He stayed out of the campaign of 1892
because he had been turned down.
He ran for Mayor against Ewing, and
under a claim of regularity encom
passed Ewing's defeat. That's the
kind of a stayer he is. He stays out
whenever he cannet rule.
lI have always been an anti-Filley
man. In 1880 I was for Blaine and in
opposition to Grant's proposed third
term. As an avowed anti-Filley man
I was elected a delegate to Minne-
polis by the PiedmomX-onvention, and
when Filley says I betrayed my con
stituency he utters a wbolo-cloth lie.
"I was not a Kerens man either, but
in order to elect an anti-Filley man to
the National Committee I voted for
Kerens- The full strength of the Mis
souri delegation was not cast at
Minneapolis, there being but thirty
two votes, and as the balloting was
secret no one can say how anybody
voted, except upon voluntary state
ment, and I never knew of anybody
but Filley saying Kerens voted for
"Filley's chargj that I was promised
anything for my service during the
last campaign is absolutely untrue.
It never entered my head to become an
applicant for the United States Dist
rict Attorneyship until after McKin
ley's election, and I may say without
vanity that every Republican in the
Thirteenth Congressional District Is
"Filley seems to be living entirely
upon newspaper notoriety. Since he
has become an assistant Democrat, I
presume, he considers his present
warfare consistant with his plan of
campaign against the Republican pa rty
This sort of assistance appears to be
specially needed to prevent the Re
publicans from carrying Missouri
next year, for even Sam Cook admits
the prospect of Democratic defeat is
imminent unless fusion with the Popu
lists shall be maintained."
What lion. Itobert K. Lewis says.
Hon. Robert E. Lewis, of Clinton,
who was the Republican nominee for
Governor of Missouri last fall, and
who did as hard work for the Republi
can party during the campaign as any
man ever did, was in the city yester
day on hisway to Washington. Speak
ing of the letters from Mr. Filley re-t-enjly
published in Democratic news
papers, Mr. Lewis said that he posi
tively and unreservedly ' denounced
them as slanderous and uncalled for,
and un-Republican from every stand
point, and declared that they simply
gave aid and comfort to the enemy,
and were clearlv traitorous. Mr.
Filley deserved to forfeit the respect
and support of Republicans by allow
ing himself to be guilty of such con

THE INTEREST BAROMETER.
Interest Rates Are Lower la Void Tbau
la Silver Standard Cooatrles.
It will pay silverites who want cheap
money that is, money at low rates of
interest to study the rates of interest
charged in gold and silver standard
countries and to compare the average
rates of interest on certain classes of
loans in sound money states, which
never favor repudiation, and in states
which favor free coinage and which
sometimes favor repudiation of debts.
It is difficult to get exact figures of in
terest rates in different states and coun
tries, but the statistics obtainable are
sot favorable for the farmer who votes
ior free silver with the expectation that
it would enable him to borrow money
at low rates of interest
According to the last census, the nvr
tge rate of interest on farm mortgages
in 1890 was 7.36 per cent. The rate has
undoubtedly declined since then, ex
cept, perhaps, in certain states whicb
re voting and legislating against cap
ital. The rate is also higher than on
most other classes of seenrities. It Is
probable that the average rate of inter
est In this country is now considerable
less than six per cent. In England.
France, Germany and many other gold
standard countries it is undoubtedly
leas than five per cent. We have, how
ever, put the rate on the barometer at
Lx per cent.
In Mexico, Central sod Sooth Amer
ican countries and in most ether coun
tries on a silver basis the rates of inter
est will probably average saere rather
than less tban ten per cent. Statistic
on ordinary loans on farm mortgage
re not available for compcrise It,
these countries. Perhaps the moat
available are those prepared fey Prof.
Irving Fisher and published In Angost,
1896, by the American Economie asrsaci-
ation. These rbow only market or beak

Shanghai for a sexies of year, and of
vounse these are fair below, the average

1S79 was 3.8 per eesit. in Sbe foor gold

In the three silver otandaadieoantiies.
In silver standard -oiintrie tbe rate
had fallen but littl-. the averagr for

Another lltow for Silver.
The IVrrvian govrnment in April
tutprnded tbe coinage of silver and de
cided tr prohibit its importation after
May 10. It is probable that Tern wished
to borrow money and that she could not
io so while on silver basic without
paying very high rates of interest. The
Shylocks of Europe refused to loan at
low rates and to take chances of losing
more by tbe depreciation of silver than
Uyry woald gain from the interest. Ob.

Dr. Frankenfeld is sorry, but he
couldn't help it. The "crimpy"
weather that is as much a part of
Thanksgiving day as cranberry or
sage will be here before night. It
stopped in the Northwest a couple of
days to do the farmer a good turn by
hardening his corn and coating the
pumpkins with frost But it will be
here before midnight. After having
delayed so long it will travel ahead
of schedule time. Tbe mercury will
fall at least 20 degrees, with a fair
prospect that the whit metal may be
driven down 40 points' from the mark
at which it stood at EDid night. The
wave is coming. . Acc6r4us to Uncle
Sam's prognosticators Sbere is no

also said that it will take S its hat
and stay a while when it gets here.
