-THE STATE REPUBLICAN-

Thursday, February 27, 1890.
The democrats arc getting razzlc-dazzled.
Gov. Francis has gone to Wash
ington to look after tho World's fair.
Whenivek a party gets aroused as
the republicans arc, they mean business.
The republicans in Colo county

If tho emperor of Germany had
taken tho advico of The Rei-ublican,
the election just held might have been
a victory for the crown. The advico

Tin: ic-election of Matt G. Rey
nolds as president of the league will
meet with general approval through
out the state.
Ovr.n 1,000 delegates attended the
league convention at Kansas City,
and it is to be regretted that Jefferson
City did not ask for the next conven
tion. Tn election for city ofllccs in
April will be under the new law the
Australian system bo that by tho
next election the voter will be famii
nr with it.
Much interest is manifested in the
efforts of Mr. Gould to hold on to the

paring to let her go. Jefferson City

It is cratifvinK to note that the ex

ago, and the Australian system of

The new treaty between the
United States and Canada has be
come a fact, and the absconding
democrats will now have to suffer the
pangs of conscience, that heretofore
they knew nothing of. .Silcot is safe.
Wi: regret exceedingly that Col.
Tracy could not give Mr. Fred
Ruchrlc a position. The support
given Mr. Rtiehrle by the Tribune,
which was entirely unsolicited by
him, is no doubt responsible for his
A Chicago jury lias just found one
of the Cronin jury bribers guilty and
gave him three years in the pcuitcn
tiary. Somehow Chicago seems to
be able to get away with its law
breakers, notwithstanding the fact
that it is a wicked city.
The fact that The RiU'um.iCAN
knows something about tho political
pulse in Missouri was demonstrated
at the league meeting in Kansas Lily,
when the name of Major Wavner was
mentioned as the republican candi
date for governor of Missouii in
Chicago gels the" World' b fair by
a majority of seven. The result is
not a surprise to any one that kept
posted. Gov. Francis made an able
fight for St. Louis, but ho could not
carry all the dead weight that was
hung to his coat tail. Charge the
loss to Jones.
We again suggest the advisability
of extending the limits of the city to
their proportion. The giowth of this
city will show up to great disadvan
tage unless it Is done. Now is the
timo before the taking of tho national
census aro begun. City pride should
prompt this step if nothing else.
Some months ago The Republican
nnnounccd tliat Major Warner would
be tho governor of Missouri in 1892.
That wo accurately gauged tho pub
lic pulse wo leave to tho republicans
who attended tho league meeting at
Kansas City on tho lfllli Inst. When
Col. Thourstou mentioned the name
of the Major in connection with tho
governorship tho delegates almost
took tho roof off. Missouii will be
redeemed aud Warner will bo our
' In the death of John Jacob Astor,
who died suddenly of heart disease
in New York on Saturday last,
America loses its greatest millionaire.
His wealth is put at 200,000,000.
Ho is said to have been a man of
magnificent figure and commanding
presence, and a gentleman in all that
that word implies.
Phodate Judge J. II. Deircks,
who has made an excellent officer,
will, on account of his election to the
position of cashier of the Merchant's
bank, resign the probato judgship.
Tho candidates for tho place aro A.
M. Hough, George Wagner and Mr.
Maddox. As this is a democratic
fight wc don't suppose our advice
would count for much, but it is not
difficult to see who would make tho
stinctlvtly felt of the back of Ills
neck, ntid tho result of the late Ricli
stag election showing 1,000,000 so
cialistic voters must have mado a cold
chill run down the back of Kmperor
William. William mado a big mis
take wltcn he supposed that his ve
hement proclamation would reduce
tho socialistic vote. An empire can
not stand on republican grounds,
Uismarek knows that by experience;
the emperor will learn it when it is
perhaps loo late.
It Is now announced officially from
Topckn, Kans., that Judge Foster of
tho United Slates circuit court, hns
authorized the receivers of tho M. K.
& T. R. K., to lease to tho Missouri
Pacific railroad tho track of that road
from Holdcn, Mo., to Paolo, Kans.,
for an annual rental of $27,500, pond

of that road. Holdcn Herald.
NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS.
Maj. Jas. McGinnis of St. Louis,
urged the election of Sedalia on ac
count of its central location and rail
road facilities, lie believed that on
account of its location Jefferson City
was the best place in the state for
holding state conventions, but 83 that
city had not asked it he favored Se
dalia." Kansas Citv Star.
That is pretty hard on tho Jeffer
son City delegates.
The democrats are beginning to
cost their eye over the political fluid
for available limber for tho contest
this fall. The name of T. M. Win
ston, who was sacrificed on the alter
of his faith for the good of his party
some three years ago, is overlooked
in all the calculations of the faithful.
Tom, you will do very well as a
worker, and there is no objection to
you sawing wood, but beyond this
thou shalt not venture.
A most exciting trial took place
last week atTrcntcn, Mo., being the
proceedings against the Spickards
ville crusaders all ladies who de
molished a club house in that city.
Tho court held that "private parties
have no right to abate a public nuis
ance when it does not directly injure
them a3 individuals, or deprive them
of any individual rights," and the
jury, which was composed of the best
and most substantial citizens of tho
town, found the ladies guilty and
fined them eacli $3 and costs.
The California citrus fair that has
been traveling on wheels for some
months and stopped a day in ttiis
city is now in Now York City, where
the exhibition will continue 30 days
and is visited by thousands. One of
the principal features of the fair is
tho Washington navel orange. Two
trees of this variety cainu originally
to the agricultural department at
Washington from Urazil, anil were
sent one to Florida and one to Cali
fornia. Both trees tlurished with this
difference, tho California fruit has
seeds, and the Florida is without seed.
Whether duo to climate or soil, is not
Tis paper was the first to suggest
the name of W. W. Wagner, of this
city, as a candidate for the state scn
ato from this senatorial district, and
we note with pleasure that there is a
general feeling abroad recognizing
Sir. Wagner as tho best, strongest
aud most acceptable timber in the
district. Mr. Wagner says he will
not accept the nomination, but if the
party calls upon him he will have to
make the race, and if ho enters it lie
will win the fight. This is a rrpub
1'can year, and the best and strong
est men must be nominated.
Some weeks ago the emperor of
Germany issued a labor proclamation
calling for a general council to con
sider the labor questions and how
best to promote the intorest of the
laboring classes. It raised quite a
sensation in European countries, and
thu action of the emperor was known
not to havo the sanction of that as
tute and accomplished diplomat aud
chancellor. Prineo Ilisinarck. But tho
young king concluded that lio would
adopt a sentiment rather than the
cold advico given by tho iron chan
cellor, and ho has reaped a whirl
wind. The socialistic vote cast was
nearly 1,500,000 against a record of
77-1,128 in tho elections of 1887. Tho
Increased vote will lose tho govern
ment the control of the Rlchstng,
and with it goes the law making,
power of tho empire. Whenever in
ternal strife begins in Germany there
will bo an upheavel compared with
which tho French revolution was a
mere festival of merry-makers. Can
ister and schell may yet be swept
through tho streets of Beilln. It was

lions of cobs arc burned or allowed
to rot every year, the prico for pipe-
making purposes keeps up. A farm
er living near Washington, Mo., re
cently sold 100 bushels of corn for

is at the rale of oi cents a lmslicl,
and if. only a sufficient Missouii

Maj. James McGinnis of St. Louis,
urged the selection of Sedalia on ac
count of its central location and rail
road facilities. Ho believed that on
account of its location Jefferson City
was tho best place in tho state for
holding slate conventions, but as that
city had not asked it ho favored Se
dalia. Nevada was next heard from, but
soon after Judge Charles G. Burton
withdrew it from the list and Major
John Bittingor of St. Joseph, with
drew the name of that city, proposed
by Col. A. C. Dawes. Jefferson City
was then added to the list and the
previous question being demanded a
vote was ordered.
The first ballot resulted in no
choice. Tbo whole number of votes
cast was 1,030 ; necessary to a choice
510. Of these Sedalia received 115 ;
nannibal, 35G, and Jefferson City,
On the second ballot the vote given
to Jefferson City on the first was
transferred to Sedalia, giving that
city more than enough votes to en
title it to the. choice of the conven
tion. Tho result of the vote was:
Whole number of votes cast, 1,002;
necessary to a choice, 527; giving
Sedalia 588 and Hannibal iCI. Just
beforo tho second ballot was taken
an effort was mado to stampedo the
convention in favor of Hannibal. It
might havo resulted disastrously for
the Sedalia enthusiasts but for the
watchfulness of Senator McGinnis,
who made tho point that the system
of voting could not be changed after
one ballot had been taken.
