The State League Convention.
The State Convention of Republi
can League clubs hold at Kansas City
was a large gathering of representa
tive republicans from every part of
tho state. The roll showed nearly
1,100 delegates, and many of tho
ablest men in tho party were present.
The convention was composed of a
Dnc looking body of men and tho
earnestness which prevailed and en
thusiasm which was manifested gave
evidence of the fact that tho repub
lican party is determined to redeem
Tho convention was held for tho
purposo of electing officers of the
league, revising tho constitution 'of
tho organization and to elect two
delegates at large and two from each
congressional district to the National
League Convention to bo held at
Nashville, Tcnn. Tho vote stood:
Reynolds, 5C2; Botsford 443. The
other offices were filled by the rc-clcc-lion
of the old incumbents, as fol
lows: Vice-Presidents James A.
Mann of Kansas City ; John B. Jaynes
of Scdaiia and C. H. Tandy of St.
Louis ; Secretary L. M. Hall of St.
Louis; Treasurer J. M. Thompson,
Two members of tho executive
committeo were chosen from each
For dclegatcs-at-largo to tho na
tional convention, Col. A. C. Dawes
of St. Joseph, and T. II . Phillips of
Mobcrly were elected, with Judge C.
G. Burton of Nevada, and A. Nelson
of Lebanon, as alternates.
Sedalia was selected as the next
place of meeting, after a spirited
Several changes were made in the
constitution, tho principal ones being
as follows: Hereafter tho represen
tation in conventions shall be one
delegate for each 100 members, in
stead of 50 as now ; no porson shall
hold a proxy from any club unless
he is a member of that club; the con
vention will meet hereafter oiicc
every two years instead of annually.
One of the big features of the con
vention was the speccli made just
after the opening by Hon. John M.
Thurston of Nebraska, president of
the national league. He is a forci
ble speaker, and his address, which
was pointed, eloquent and Intensely
republican aroused great enthusiasm.
In closing his speech he spoke of
Maj. Warner in connection with the
governorship and this set the conven
tion wild, Cheer followed cheer and
when the speaker sat down there wero
loud cries for Warner. The Major
responded in a short speech that was
full of good points.
On tho first day the following res
olution, introduced by Judge Burton
of Nevada, was adopted by a rising
vote: "Resolved, That in the doath
of Elbert E. Kimball the State of
Missouri has lost an exemplary citi
zen; tho Union, one, who, in his
youth, was a gallant defender of its
Integrity and its Hag; in his manhood,
an able, earnest supporter of all
things that tended to its greatness
and glory. A chosen and cherished
leader of the republican party, wo
have sustained an irreparable loss in
his untimely decease. Tears to his
memory peace to his ashes. He has
left us the grand heritage of his
name. May his example inspire us
with rcnowed love and devotion to
tho principles of our party and the
accomplishment of its alms."
The convention adjournod Thurtj
day afternoon. Harmony and good
feeling prevailed and the rf qlti of
its work were very satisfactory. Thi
league is composed of intelligent,
earnest men and under tho leader
ship of tho aggressivo men who, havo
been arrain nlaccd in control of it. is
going to do a grand work for the re

better work in the future, and its

The following resolution wore
unanimously adopted at the recent
convention of the Republican League
clubs of Missouri:
"Resolved, That wc, the Republi
can League clubs of Missouri, in con
vention assembled, hereby afJrm our
fidelity to the principles of tho re
publican party as set forth in the
platform of our last republican na
tional and state conventions. And
wo declare our unwavering confi
dence in tho patriotism and integrity
of our national administration, and
in its fidelity to the interests of the
republican party .
"That we regard with pride and
satisfaction tho work accomplished
by the Republican League clubs ef
Missouri in promoting and increasing
republican sentiment in the state;
that it is our purpose to continue to
perfect club organization, and we de
clare that the thanks of this league
arc due to its president and other
officers, who have, at great personal
sacrifice, brought it to its present
high state of excellence.
"That we regard the farming in
terests of the country as lying at tho
foundation of all business prosperity,
and declare it to be the primaryjduty
of our legislatures, national and
state, to foster those interests so far
as it can be done by legislation, and
that we are opposed to all monopo
lies, combines or trusts which inter
fere with the just rewards of honest
'While wo believe that majorities
havo no right, by legislation or
otherwise, to impose unjust burdens
or restrictions upon minorities, yet
we believe that this government is es
tablished upon a, principle that ma
jorities ought to rule, and we take
this occasion to express our approv
al of the course of the republican
speaker of the house of representa
tives in holding that a minority in
congress should not, while present in
their scats, obstruct the course of
national legislation by claiming to be
absent and refusing to rote." Ek.
The protracted meeting still continues
Much Interest seems to prevail with onr
