Vote the republican county ticket.
Vote against "Urass Dick."
TitK Wiling of Jim Lawson, col
ored, occurred in Maries county, not
Miller county, as has been stated by
the press of this city.
Is there in Colo county union
soldier who can vote for Gen. Mc
Intyrc, in the face of his pledges to
Vest? Wo hope not.
The Globe-Democrat was furious
over the nomination of Mr. Frosscr,
but like the dimc-niusctini curiosity
exhibited for one day only.
Thk people of Jefferson City feel
the necessity of a railroad to the
south. It is only a question of time
when it must be built and that not
The republican party is the great
party of this country, and every
young man who believes in the futuic
greatness of his country should at
tach himself to the grand old party.
J. J. Sommeks, the republican can
didate for probate judge, is a good
man and well qualified for the oflicc.
His record as school commissioner of
the county speaks of him in unmis
takable terms of praise, and he
should receive every republican
vote. He is a strong candidate and
should be elected.
"In- this bill becomes a law it would
put on the free list one-half of all
the products which the United States
imports, the liko of which was never
known in any tariff bill1 ever passed
by tho congress of the United Stales.
Under tho Mills bill only '10 percent,
of foreign importations wcro placed
on the free list." McKlnley final
Tiif.se are among the great things
accomplished through the republican
congress in the past nine mouths:
A revised tariff law.
A law restoring silver.
A just pension law.
Contract labor forbidden.
Convict labor forbidden.
An eight-hour law.
New states admitted.
New ships for the navy.
855,000 for the Osage river.
Every young man who dc3ircs to
sec Missouri grow should cast his
vote with the republican patty.- We
especially urge the young men who
cast their first vote this year to vote
the republican ticket. Remember
that wo owe everything that this
country is to-day to the republican
parly. Every good governmental
question of the day for the past 30
years lias ucen the creation or re
publican brains. The democratic
paity is the paity of hind sight,' al
ways crying "whoa," when not work-
ng in tho interest of England.
becoming as popular throughout, the
entire state as it has been to the
friends who have known him for so
many years. Honest, genial and
worthy of the good will of every
man, woman and child, we want to
sec the people give him a rousing
vote and make him railroad commis
eioncr of Missouri.
"Brass Dick" and George Gim
hlelholc Vest, democratic blunder
busses, arc trying to induce the
people to keep tliem in the warm
seats that they have been holding
down for these many year?. They
have each drawn over S 100,000,
which is a very high tax for the peo
ple to pay for nothing.
Is this great race of whito men
afraid to deal out equal and exact
justice to the whole people, or is the
negro still a "chattel" without a
soul, who has no God and no country
that hu can call to his aid In his hour
of need? Ho cm stand up before nn
intelligent audience and ridicule a
raeo that ho tried to keep tu bon
dage, ho can use his great Intellect
to bcllltli! them, ho can cry out
"negro domination," ho can erect
"scare crows'' and arouse tho pas
sions of hato against a poor, down
trodden race, but ho cannot raise his
voicoandsay: "Tho constitution of
this land guarantee? equal and exact
justice to all men."
Of Letter to Conductor Keys,
of the Chicago & Alton
is there a farmer in Cole county
who can vote for Gen. Mclntyrc for
the legislature in the face, of Vest's
letter to tho farmers of Missouri,
when Ihey have in the person of Mr.
Dix, a candidate who is himself a
farmer and who will go to the legis
lature without a pledge to anyone,
and who will be free to vote in the
interest of the agriculturists.
Ik Gen. Mclntyrc expected to got
any colored votes to help elect him to
the legislature he should have
barred the door against them while
Vest was speaking at the court house
in this city. Tho colored man seems
to be a source of infinite trouble to
the democracy, and they seem to be
Mind to the fact that this is not the
year A. D., 18C0, lint 1800.
Is years past "rotation in odlcc"
was good democratiu doctrine, but
"Brass Dick" and George Gimblet-
hole Vest have changed that time
honored principle and it has consc
qucntly disappeared flora the demo
iralic platforms In Missouri. The
bosses have fixed the "rotation"
business so that it rotates from one
lo the other. "What fools these
TrtE democratic party would like
to sec n m. . agner defeated,
but wherever they turn they find the
road blocked, They liavo tried all
the by-paths and by-ways but they
can make no headway. Billy Wagner
has always been a friend of the poor,
and generous and kind to those in
need. A colored man remarked lo
us the other day that they had been
trying to get him to vote against Mr.
Wagner, but lie said: "Before God
I cannot do it, because Mr. Billy
Wagner has always befriended me
when 1 was in need or in trouble,"
Hundreds cf others will tell the
same stoiy, and what good men do is
not always forgotten.
THE NINTH DISTRICT.
The nominafun of Mr. 1'rosscr for
congress seems to have been a sur
prise to the fi lends of Mr. Frank,
and yet, Mr. Frank kept the wires
between Washington and St. Louis
hot, insisting that he did not wan4

the people. On the part of Mr.
Frank's friends no effort was made
to secure the nomination for him. up
pnrcnlly taking him at bis word that
he did not want the nomination. It
now transpires that he evidently did
want It, but thought it should be
brought to liiiu on a silver platter
with all the usual trimmings, and
Mr. Filley's scalp, as an ornament,
thrown in. In other words he op
posed MY. fc'illey in tho postollice con
test, and was gratified over his do-
feat and now appears as tho big man
of the see, and eays: "Yes, I will
take this nomination if you will
bring it as a further humiliation of
Chauncey I. Fillcy." Not much!
The republican party is not engaged
n that kind of business, not this
year besides, it is opposed to forc
ing ofilce on any man against his
will . Mr. Frank has made a good
congressman, and we are personally
fiicndly and in the language cf po
litical platforms "deplore'' the result
which relegates him to private life,
and admonish him to study the old
German adage i Wer nicht liocren
will, muss fuchlen.
Mr. 1'rosscr. tho nominee, is a
good republican, and was nominated
by the republican convention of the
Ninth district by an overwhelming
majority and should receive every
republican vote in his district.

race by tho sacred provisions of the
ccuulltullou of the United State',
M. O. KeY3, Esq., Jkkferson City,
Mo., Dear Sir anii Brother: Your
lctlc.'just received. I am sorry that
I cannot be at Mexico on Thursday
to meet with tho republican congres
sional committee of that district,
Prior engagements keeps mo away.
Please sav to tho members of that
committee that I am very much grat
ificd at the outlook all over the slate,
I find, wherever I have been, a united
army of workers in my behalf. Tt.erc
may be several who do not know me,
and 1 doubt if any of the committee
know much about my former life be
fore coming to Missouri ; will give
them a short sketch :
I wis born at Scianton, Penn., in
1811, up to the age of 12 years I
lived at home, then I went to live
with a farmer and worked morning
and evenings for my board -, went to
school through the day; I did this !S
years ; then I was employed as a farm
laborer until I was 17; I then had
the western fcvci ; went to Marseilles,
III., where 1 worked on a farm one
year. Then I enlisted in 8SthIll. Vol.
Infantry; remained at the front with
my regiment for 3 years; was in all
the battles in vihieh my regiment was
engaged ; at the close of the war re
turned to Illinois, and after two
months visit returned lo Pennsyl
vania and was employed on a railroad
there five years as brakeman and
conductor of a freight train ; in 1870
came west; wa3 employed by the
Missouri Pacific railway a9 a brake
man and am at the present writing a
passenger conductor on tlte road ;
hope the laboring men will recognise
tho fact that I am one of them.
Now, as lo my qualifications to fill
the oillco to which I have boon nouiu
naled. I believe, with my piactical
knowledge of railroad matters in gen
eral, 1 am better qualified to (ill the
position than a man who is not fa
miliar with railroads ; would be better
able to jadgc between the railroads
and the shipper, so as to do Justice lo
all concerned; I hayu heaid it in
some parts of the stale that I would
be controlled li the railroads ; I will
say this: I am working for the MIs-
' souri Pacific Railway Company ; I im
paid for my labor ihc oaine as if I
was at vroiu on a farm, and I must
have done my work well, eiso I could
not huve remained with Ihom 20
Now, if tho people of Missouil
elect mo to fill an cilice, is it not,
reasonable lo suppose I would fill it
just as faithfully to the interest of
the people as I have filled my other
position with Hie Mibsouri Pacific
railway. I know I will do so and do
justice lo all psric3 interested with
out fear or favor.
I am writing at length on t'.iis sub
ject lo you, ao that tho good citizens
at Mexico and vicinity, and all enmi
ties where tho committee men come
from, to know what kind of a man 1
am, how I stand, etc. Vour8 in P, p.
