It is an undeniable fact that the

country was in a hopeless minority.

Erect and proud as sovereign State
with equal rights, the Democratic
South will go into the October Con

party and prepared lo enforce the de

seat. That is amonir the relicts of
the old days of humiliation, sorrow
and defeat. Neither can it be crushed
into silence by the fear of awakening
sectioual jealousy. That song has
been sung until it ceases to carry any
music in its cadence. It has been the
pica under which the greedy North
has grasped the loaves and fishes and
left the patientSouth with nothing but
the husks to eat. Those times arc
past. The prodigal son has leen clad
in new garments, and stands upon an
equal footing in the mansions of his
fathers. The South htlds the balance
of power in the Democratic house,

Senate. She is sending to Congress

Her genius, her eloquence and cour
age have been pressed into service,
and, like a new Titan, she has risen
from the ashes of her long and sor

with the ungenerous North the lead

victories to her courage, and all its

the road are so autnerous and great,
and the necessity for building it so i lu
crative, that a railroad meeting has
been called at Smith's Hall for Friday
night at which our business men will
assemble aud interchange views and
opinions. Warsaw will send a delega
tion of its prominent men to repre
sent the interests ot the people of not
only Benton comity, but of the South
west. It is to be IiojkhI, therefore,
that every man in the county and
city who feels the importance of this
undertaking (and who does not?) will
be present and give to the enterprise
such substantial aid and comfort as
will put it under way and secure to
the people of the Southwest a rail
road connection which, while benefit
ing them, will be another leap forward
for Sedalia towards that prosperous
future to which it looks forwanl with
such brilliaut hopes.

WARSAW & SEDALIA NARROW
No greater calamity could fall upon
Sedalia than the loss of that portion of
the Southwest trade which comes rom
Benton. Hickorv and St. Clair coun
ties. It has, perhaps, done more to
build up the city, and give life and
enterprise to business than nuv other
of our commercial factors. To keep
this trade and add to it, by developing
the resources and enterprises of the
couutrv from which it comes should
lie the .first object of our people.
Nothing cau accomplish this purpose
so readily as a railroad. It is the vital
izing factor in all industry and all
commerce. Yt ucrever its iron arms
stretch out, thriving villages spring up
and the bleak prairie blossoms like the
rose. It adds to population aud aug
ments the resources of industry, and
sets in motion those prosperous tides
of trade which are the healthful and
vitalizing currents of all communities.
Why then should not Sedalia be in
terested in building up the country
which has generously aided and as
sisted her ? And how can she so effec
tually demonstrate this good will as
by securing to it railroad facilities ?
A tew years ago a narrow gauge
road was projected from Warsaw via
Versailles to Tipton. It fell through
after a large part of the grading was
done, and a portion of this road bed
can now oe utiiizeu in tne roaa irom
this city to Warsaw. The ad vantages
to both communities are sufficiently
apparent. By coming here, Warsaw
and the South will have the advantage
of competing lines in their freight
shipments, and the benefit of the
best market west of St. Louis. They
are fully aware of this, and their in
clinations all tend this way. But
what is scarcely less important, is the
shorter route and the lessened ex
peaditwe which the building of the
road will occasion. They have a good
road bed from Cole Camp to -Warsaw,

Minnesota is boxsting of the pros
perous condition of her people and the
satisfactory showing as to her state
treasury, the people that boasts of
the best and largest wheat crop ever
raised and of a full treasury ami at the
same time repudiates honest debts, is a
very poor business. If an individual
did the same thing people would say
he had a very hard cheek ami that is
exactly the case with Minnesota and
with the County court of Jucksou
county, Missouri, as well.
