WASHINGTON, Jan. 6. (Special
Correspondence.) The legislative,
record of the Republican party for
1921 Is a legislative tragedy. It Is n
story of huge appropriations and ex
travagant expenditures; of promises
unfulfilled or wilfully broken; of legis
lation delayed or so badly conMructed
that It satisfies nobody.! of agricultur
al Interests deceived and business in
terests betrayed; of apartly frustrat
ed attempt to serve onls" special privi
lege; of a leadtrless majority groping
in the dark and displaying at ciry
uncertain step Its lack, of understand
ing of tho problems .confronting -It
and Its Inability to solve thrm.
Tho administrative record of the
Republican party for 1921, except for
the rnlllnc? nf the disarmament enn-
fercnec, upon the unfml.-hed work of j
which It would be premature and un
fair to pass Judgment, iand where the
party has followed Irvitlie footsteps of
the previous Democratic administra
tion In foreign affalrs,,has been an
administrative failure, marked by had
appointments .In Its .foreign service,
re-thronement of special privilege,
nullification of the principle of the
civil service law and a general re
crudescence of rcactloirylsm.
The end of 1921 finds tho liberal
and progressive elenicnt ot the1 party
In revolt agalny the reactionary spirit
and policy which dominates both tho
legislative and administrative branch

Whereas, There has appeared be

If continued, that not only affect tho
welfare of the lmmedlato employes

When tho state election rolls around

Jomeph will be vitally Interested will
bo the supreme court of tho state,
for this city 111 be almost certain
to hae a democratic candidate for
one of tho threo places that Hill be
filled, and at which tlmo the political
complexion of ho supreme body will
be determined, The latter feature
promises to be most Interesting as tho
gops will make a desperate effort to
maintain their present domination of
the court and tt do so they must elect
all three of their candidates while the
democrats must elect but one out of
the thrt'P plaros wlilch they are un
der existing conditions bound to do,
and return the court to Its proper
Under the present situation In the
supreme body, the terms of Judges
Robert F. Walker, democrat, of St.
Louis; Eduaid Hlgbee, repubVlcan, of
Klrksville, and Conway Elder, gop, of
St. Louis, will expire this vear and
their places will bo filled.
Short Term Men
Elder and Hi3beo were elected last
year for short terms, places created
by the death of Judge BonJ and the
resignation ot Judge Farti to take a
place on tho federal bench. 'Hlgbee
amf'Waiker probably will "be candi
dates for ro'-ele'etlon. Elder fs ah as
pirant for the new federal Judgeship
in St. Louis, but failing to land, prob
ably will be a candidate for the su
preme court. The term of a supreme
court judge Is ten years. The pay Is
$7,500 ft year.
State wide attention was attracted
to the supremo court by the recent
decision of the majority members In
validating the Republican senatorial
redisricting act. Judges Hlgbee, El
der and Blair. Republican, members,
wrote dissenting opinions attacking
the decision as political. Probably
never beforo had the supreme court
been excoriated so severely by mem
bers of tho court Itself.

Much Is being said about Judge
John I. Williamson of Kansas City,
who went down with tho Democratic
ticket to defeat two years ngo, but it
is not certain whother ho will care to
make a second try for a seat on te
supremo court bench, . f .
Not a few of the De.mocrats regf d

high honor of a seat on the supreme
