As It Was, So It Is.
When we first came to Missouri,
Chauncey I.Filley was a member of
the National Committee and he ws
maligned, traduced and abused,
kicked and cuffed until at lut his
enemies got full control of the pie
counter. Then they put in Richard 1
C.Kerens. His seat had not got
warm before the same set were yelp
ting at his heels and kept it up un
til he stepped down and out. Now
the delegates duly selected by the
people in their respective districts
and sent to Chicago to nominate
candidates and to select the mem
ber of the National committee, have
selected T. J. Akins. We don't
see how a selection could have been
more fairly made. But already the
howl has begun. Filley held no of
fice and neither did Kerens, but both
give their endorsment to their friends
and the best men for places as they
understood it, just as any other
man in their position would and
will do in all time to come, and for
this the kickers got in their woik.
Akins has committed the unpardon
able sin of allowing himself to be
appointed Asst. U. S. Treasurer
down at St. Louis because the pres
ident wanted him lor that place,
and then allowed himself to be
elected National committeeman by
the delegates selected by the peo
ple up at Chicago. Already the
pack are after him. Ceasur,Poinp.
Watch, Carlo, and even Fido. are
yelping and snapping at his heels,
while every Democratic rooter along
the route is yelling "sic 'em Tige '
"Hiss 'em Spring," and cl ipping
their hands in an ecttscey of delight.
'Twould have been the same had
any other prominent party man
been selected. The Outs want in.

from Dade county's big delegation

convention was ten, including the
chairman of the committee and the

convention and the banner visiting
delegation from the home county of
Mr. DeArmond, Dates, consisted
of three. Withal committees were
appointed, reported and were dis
charged much the same as in a real
convention, and Mr. DeArmond'i

once more the farmers ot Kansas
are crying out for help to gather
Sunday school excursions on old
wooden steamships which tail on
the Potomac continue to be given
in this city, notwithstanding the
fearful warning which has come
from New York. Many parents
refuse to challenge Providence und
take the risks. After Washington
has had its horrible disaster this
form of amusement will be called
off. The office of the Steamboat
Inspection Service is in this city,
connected with the Department of
Commerce and Labor. The Su
pervising Igspector is Mr. Geo. Ul
ner, who draws a salary of $3,500.
Just now he is in New York attend
ing the varied investigations into
the causes of the terrible disaster to
presumed he will give all the in'
formation in his power, since Sec
retary Cortelyou has announced
that he will stand by the inspectors
until it has been proved that they
have been either incompetent or de
relict in duty. It will be a surprise
to bis friends if Mr. L'bler retuses
to answer any of the question which
may be propounded. It was stated
that as soon as the fearful extent of
the loss of life was known in Wash
ington, Mr. Uhler made some very
damaging statements; but be has
since denied the interview.
Mr. Dicky, of Kansas City, man
ifests the rigl'.t spirit when he says
he will do all he can to help curry
the state in the coming campaign.
Now if his friends will do as well
as hit is going to do, harmony will
prevail and when we carry the state
there will be more pie to distribute.
