The large number of changes at
tho prison during Warden Morrison'
administration has given the repub-
licans increased hopes of carrying
Cole county this fall.
There is an intimation that there
will bo an independent democratic
candidate for the legislature against
the regular democratic nominee in
this county. Look out for sr-tials.
The secretary of tho treasury has
advertised for sealed bids for tho ex
clusive privilege of tho seal fisheries
of the next twenty years. A certified
check for 100,000 is required as a
deposit with every bid. Tho Alaika
company that has enjoyed tho mon
opoly for tho past twenty years paid
$200,000 per annum. Here is
chanco for somo enterprising young
man who is anxious to go west and
grow up witu the country.
Is there anything strange about
tho republicans expectation of carry
ing the next legislature, when it only
needed seventeen additional mem
bers to control the last session V
Hardly, when tho fact is considered
that twenty-thrco of the democratic
members elected had less than 130
majority and eleven ot those elected
had no majority at ail. Therefore,
it scetns to us an easy matter to get
seventeen out of the thirty-four, and
if we do, we've got 'cm.
The fall elections have taught us
all a lesson. It forces the conviction
that party ties are not what they
used to be. Tho voter of to-day was
an infant when the war closed, ami
he is not moved b3 the sr.me impul
ses that inllucnucd his father. He
looks at parties through different
spectacles and hence the largo ma
jorities in such stales as Iowa are not
to be counted upon hereafter. Every
national election leaves the war four
years further behind, and in this fact
wo see Missouri emerging from a
hopeless to a blight and glorious
future. Missouri, the garden spot of
America, will proclaim her prin
cipals in 1802, and possibly in 1800.

itself behind a congressional grab.

Tlico figures ought to encourage
the republicans to co to work. A
little earnest, effective work in these
districts might result In giving the
legislature to tho parly of progress,
ana everyone must concede, wo
think, that control of the legislature,
when the chances are so- good, is
worth working for.
It is evident that the people want
a change. Tho reduction in the
democratic majorities last year shows
that the people are getting tired of
In a democratic club meeting held
in tins county not long ago, it is said
a strong democrat got up to oppose
a resolution binding all the members
to vote the democratic ticket regard
less of who might be on it, and said
lie "would liko to see this county
represented in the legislature once."
This expression undoubtedly voices
tho scnt'inonls of many democrats
throughout the slate. They would
like to sec their counties represented
in the legislature.
If the republicans will nominate
good, representative men in these
doubtful counties, and will organize
their forces and go to work in the
right way, wo believe ihey can elect
a nvtjority of the legislature. It will
take lota of work to win, but no vic
tory that is worth anything can be
won without woik.
Every republican in the stale ought
to take an active Interest m the light
next year. Next year is the time for
a fight, and we hope that the repub
lican forces all over tiie state will be
organized ami rea ly for woik when
the campaign opens.

with such potential effect, in the
national election of 18SG, is what a
competent physician after proper
diagnoses would prescribe for tin
people, of Missouri.
PuusinusT Harrison has been se
vercly criticised, and much of the
criticism is undoubtcdlv due to his
appointment of relatives to ofllce.
While that is a matlei of personal
concern to the president, providing
of course, that the appointees possess
tho requisite qualifications required
for tho proper performance of the
woik required by Hie public acivi'-e,
still it is one of the small things that
can be used with great effectiveness
by the opposition press. Still the
president's fitness for the ofllce should
in no wise be gauged by so trivial a
matter. The question is, lias he in
ottier respects met tho full measure of
public expectation. It is hardly Just
after a trial of only eight months to
pa i judgment on a man who Is nec
essarily forced to disappoint thou
sands of applicants for olllco, all of
whom, naturally enough, conclude
that the president is not quite us big
a man as lie would have been had he
appointed the disappointed individual
to tho oflico applied for, or give him
something, 'Equally as good." Our
advice to republicans is to give Har
rison a fair show. It is unfair to'
judge him during tho first eight
months of his administration. Re
pilbllcins will iccall the fact that
Cleveland was the most unpopular
man in Ills party a year after his in
auguration, while to-day, he is the
Moses that they expect to call on to
lead them out of tho wilderness. Give
tho president a fair chance before
sewing seed of discord In tho party.
FACTS AND FIGURES.
Somo time ago this paper called at
tention to tho foot that tho demo
cratic majority in tho legislature was
backed by a slim vo'.c and rested
upon a very uncertain foundation.
Tho democratic mnjutity on Joint
ballot is thirty-two. It will require
a change in seventeen districts to'
give the republicans control of the
Tliirly-ouQ democrfttio members of
Edwin Silver is mentioned as an
aspirant for senatorial honors. This
is going to be a bad year for demo
crats, and all wise men will stand
Tom Mulian, Billy Roer and Jos.
Frommc, with tho rural district to be
heard from, want the democratic
nomination for collector. After
Henry Dulle gets through with them
they will knotv more about La
Grippc. Some republican will have to make
the race for the legislature this year
from Cole county mid win it. Dr.
Enloo came within sixty-one votes of
it last election, notwithstanding the
superhuman cffoit made by his op
ponent. The friends of Mr. Gus. E. Lnh
inan are urging him to apply fur the
position of deputy United States
maiohal. Mr. Lohmati is a gentle
man who, if appointed, will be a
credit to the service and tiin new
marshal, if lie wants an honest, com
petent and trustworthy deputy, will
give the place to him if lie wants it.
Up to date no democrat has had
the courage to intimate a desire to
run against Arluur Urimslmw for
11. A. Swift says he will not ngdu
be a candidate for county judge.
But tho judge will find vox lmiiuli too
strong to resist. There is no excuse,
