Two Important Amendments.
Missouri voters, as far as can be as
certained, are practically a unit in fa-
vor of the Louisiana Purchase Centen-
nial exposition, to be held in St. Louis
inn-. T i r . t
in 1903. In order to comply with the
conditions laid down by congress, and
to enable the fair to be held, the two
constitutional amendments 4 and 5
must be carried at the November elec
tion. As already explained Amend
ment No. 4 merely authorizes the city
of St. Louis to issue $5,000,000 in
bonds, and invest the proceeds in
World's Fair stock. Klectors through
out the state should have no hesita-
tion about giving the city of St. Louis
this net-mission. Amendment n 5 an- i
thorizes the legislature to make an-
nronriation out of the interest nn.l
debt sinkine fund for a Missouri state
r r . - -
exhibit at the World's Fair. This will j
impose no additional tax burden, '
while the benefits the state will de- j
rive from an exhibit of its resources i
and products can hardly be estimated i
in dollars and cents.

city property, among which is the hand
somest residence in the city. A wife, two
sons and three daughters are left to
mourn his loss, along with many prom
inent citizens, who have been assisted by

struggling to forge ahead.
Funeral of Founder of Joplin.

The funeral rites were conducted by
