Tho TninUNE may bo wrong in
its position on tho loot of tho
School Fund bund, but It Is not
wrong willfully. It Stephens, Sel
bcrt nnd Carrington toll tho truth
In regard to tho fund, then tho
Tribune's position Is correct "that
the fund has been used and a cer
tificate or bond issued in Us place,
on which every tax-payer in Mis
souri pays tho interest instead of
WHAT CARUINQTON SAY8.
"In 1872 tho State Legislature
found that tho State, owed tho
school fund about 8000,000, and Is
sued a State (certificate of indebt

bond bearing six per cent and fix
ing a deflnlto date of payment.
This recognized tho stato's obliga
tion and put it Into tangible
Hero Carrington says tho State
owed tho school fund about $000,'
000. How did It owo it? Bid tho
State uso tho $900,000?. E vldcntly,
yes. Did it pay DacK tno moneys
No. It gave a "stato certificate of
indebtedness" bearing 0 per cent
interest,-which you and I arc taxed
to pay ovety year. No democrat
"In 1875 the State Board of Ed
ucation, under the authority of tho
constirution, sold its U. S. bonds
and purchased btato bonds. Uon
slderine that U. S. bonds were
abovo par, and Stato bonds below
par, tnnt tno stato Donas ooro a
higher rate of interest, this trans
nction increased tho permanent
funds about 8 100.000 and the annual
annorilonmcnt to the schools more
than. $50,000. Another.f act .worth
consideration, hero is that tno MMe
sh6wcd Its faith In its own bonds
by Investing Its permanent school
fundslnthem. Tho result was that
our state bonds were soon at par
and havo never slnco been below
Carrington says tho abovo trans
action Increased tho permanent
fund $100,000 nnd tho annual ap
portionment $50,000. Carrington
Is correct In this but ho does not
go on to say that tho stato used up
this $100,000 for current expenses
nnd then collected $50,000 tax
each year from tho tnx-paycrs to
put into tho apportionment fund.
Beforo tho snlo of tho U. a. Donus
tho United States paid tho Interest
and not tho tax payers of Missouri.
"In 1881 tho State Legislature
directed tho lssuanco of n "consoli

In lieu of nil school fund securities.

Republican apathy is now a
dream of tho past, Tho campaign
Is in full swing all over tho country,
and from almost every state comes
tno samo story republican activity
and determination to win by a
larger majority In tho electoral
collcgo than in 1890, and to elect a
majority of tho House. With tho
coming of republican activity tho
doubt about Congress there, has
never peon any doubt tho election
ofMcKInloy nnd Roosevelt dls-
upuenred like frost In tho morning
sun shine. As in 1890, the business
cleilent of tho country is with tho
republicans, and no candidate
solidly supported by that clement
has ever been defeated, It was be
cause this t-lemcnt refused to rcc-
gnlzo tho danger that there was a
doubt about Congress, but It is
now thoroughly aroused and work
ing harder every day, and assured
victory Is In tho air. The republi
can majority in tho present Houso
is 13 und several republicans from
