A number of colleges have at last

There is another very simple and
effective way to stop it, if the col

other disorderly persons who com

The- State Auditor Itrport.
The Missouri State Republican
of Nov. 8th gives in full the State
Auditors report showing the receipts
and expenditures from January 1st,
1865 to December 31, 1900, inclu
live, together with the go emeu's
address to the people.
There are two things that espec
ialiy attracted our attention in the
report and address. First, the en
tire absence of the old threadbare
charge that the slatn debt was foist
ed on the people by the Republican
party. Second, the admission that
the outstanding debt Dec. 31, 1900,
was $6,aSo,S39 42, just what the
Republicans, during the last cam
paign, said it was, and more than
4,000,000 greater than the Demo
cratic siate platform claimed it was.
The report also shows the out
standing debt for the period begin
ning Jan. 1, JS65, (notice the word
ing) and ending Dec. 31, 1S70,
The addition to the debt
during this period was 7,392,000

Captain .Tilley,. naval- governor

A Boston magistrate who had
before him an ex-alderman charged
with drunkenness turned to the Cen
tury Dictionary for a definition of
the term, the statutes of the Bay
State being woefully deficient on
this point This defines 4drunk"
as being overcome, stupefied or
frenzied with liquor. The evidence
did not show that the accused was
as bad as that, and he was dis
charged. If the judge had desired
to be really explicit, he might have
quoted at an authority the late Pe
troleum V. Nasby, who once de
fined drunkenness as that condition
of mind and body which prompted
a man when lying on the ground to
catch hold of the grass to prevent
his falline off the earth.
The postal revenue for the year
ending June 30, 1900, was 102,

30, 1901, it was 111,000,000, and
for this year it is estimated at 121,

The decision of Governor Durbin
of Indiana, to decline to honor
requisition for ex-Governor Taylor

actions by every one who believes
in fair play. No one believes they
would receive a fair trial with
Goebelized judge and a Goebelized
jury, such as tried Caleb rowers
last month. Governor Durbtn's ar
raignment of Judge Cantrill was a
scorcher and the Goebelized organt
tav it was libelout, bur it it not
likely that any ttept will be taken
to prove the libel. Cantrill' par

Outstanding debt Dec.
31, 1S70, 20.SS9.000
This period is the time covered
by the administrations of Gover
nor Fletcher and McClurg, the only
Republican governors the state ever
had. We understand that the fig
ure, $36,091,908, represent the
debt at the beginning of the Repub
lican control, and that during this
administrction $7,392,000 was add
ed to the debt, thus making the total
$43,486,908, as given above and in
the auditor's report. The report
therefore confirms what the Repub
licans have always claimed, . that
they paid all the debt they made
and more than $14,000,000 of the
anti-war Democratic debt.
We want to call the attention of
The Tribune readers to these fig

control, the state of Missouri redtic
ed her debt according to this Dem
ocratic auditor's report, $22,597,

tion of B. Gratz Brown a state debt!
of only $20,889,000, and that on
the 31 day of December, 1900, af

Democratic rule, the Mute debt is

As is wt.ll known, some metals
are unsuitable tor casting, wr.ue
others, like iron, can readily be cat
in any desired shape. The prop
erty of casting is said to depend up
on whether the metal contracts or
expands on so'iUifymg from the
liquid form. Iron, like water, ex
pands in solidifying, and hence the
solid metal may be seen floating in
the liquid iron about it. The ex
pansion causes it to till the die into
which it is poured, and o it can be
cast easily. Gold and silver con
tract in cooling and therefore are
not suitable for casting.
