Till: MAINK ELECTION'.
Here is what wa thought at t J
the result in Maine Just upon the
eve of the election in that atate:
"Politician of both parties agree
that the m?jotity fur the Republi
cam will not be a large at it hat
bten in recent years. The Hon
William T. Cobb, Republican can
didute tor governor, expect not
less than 15,000 plurality.
"Democrat a a rule, are hope
ful that the Republican plurality
will fall a low 11 10,000."
The result is given elsewhere iu
the Tm iil's t. It is doubtlest a
turpiise to the politician of both
pailie. So will be the result in
November. Taking the reult in
Oregon, Vermont and Maine a a
ciitriion und Roosevelt will be
elected by mote than a million majority.

SAME OLI THICK.
The attempt of the Democratic
party and papers to show & defi
ciency in the United States treas
ury caused by the extravagance of
the administration cf President
Roosevelt, is in lino with the pol
icy of that party ever since the
election of General Jackson.
The party has always paraded
some kind of a deception before
the people, and in the days cf
their ignorance before the war,
oftener succeeded than they fail
ed. Since the war, because of the
increase of the general intelligence
of the people, caused by the poli
cy of the Republican party, they
oftener fail in their deceptive
schemes than they succeed.
Fortunately for the country the
people can now about all read and
understand what they read, hence
they know that the deficiency this
year was caused by tne purchase
of the site for the Panama canal.
They know if it had not been for
this purchase there would have
been a surplus this year.
The Democratic scare-crow will
not work this year in any state
where (here is a free ballot and an
When the great anthracite coal
strike was on in Pennsylvania, our
Democratic friends, led by the late
Senator Vest, assured the country
that the way to break the coal
trust and reduce the price of coal,
was to put coal on the free list.
T he Republicans, in their mag
nanimity, with a perfect willing
ness to test the matter, put coal
on the free list. The coal trusts
are still doing business at the old
stand, and instead cf the price of
coal coming down, it went up.
Even here in Rich Hill the peo
ple have had to pay more for coal
than ever before in the history of

According to present indications
the State University will have
nearly two thousand students at

is due to a liberal use of printer's
ink. The institution is now one
of the largest advertisers of Amer

results of its past experience will
probably lead to a inure extertiuJ

CYRIS P. WALBRIDGl,
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR
GOVERNOR Of MISSOURI,
is the son of a Methodist preacher, and was born in Madrid,
N. Y., July 20, 1849. He comes of excellent New England
stock. He spent his youth and young manhood in Illinois
and Minnesota. His father, Rev. Orlo Walbridge, moved
from Illinois to Minnesota in tS6i, and settled on a tarm near
Northfleld, where young Cyrus worked on his father's farm
and attended school.
While living on the farm he learned the carpenters trade,
by means of which he made money to continue hi? education.
After attending college for some time at Carlton ClVge at
Northheld, he taught school in Michigan and worked his
way to graduation from the law school at the Michigan Uni
versity. In 1S70 he determined to try his fortune in St, Louis. Here
be had about the luck most young men have w ho try to estab
lish themselves in the profession of law, until a lriend inter
ested in the success of a worthy young man, put in his charge
the legal business of the J. S. Merrill Drug Company. How
well the young man did his duty is toM by the fact that lie
married the proprietors daughter, became a stockholder in
the concern, and for several years was president cf the com
pany. For a number of years he took quite an active part in local
military affairs, and rose from private to the rank of Lieut.
Col. ot the 1st Regt. Mo. Nat'l Guards.
In iSt he was elected a member cf the St. Louis House of
Delegates, but declined a re-election iu 1SS3. In he
was elected president of the city council, notwithstanding
the fact that the Democratic candidate for mayor was elected
that year. At the expiration of his term as president of the
council, he was nominated by the Republicans for Mayor, and
elected by a Rood majority. He proved to be one of the best
mayors the city of St. Louis ever had.
Since the expiration of his term as mayor, tc has been de
voting his attention to his private business with a commend
able degree of success. He has, in the meantime, not lost
the run cf political affairs, bt like all good cituens, has kept
himself in touch with the political movements of the day.
Mr. Walbridge is a member pf the Congregational church,
the Masonic fraternity, Knights of Pythias a:)d other benevo
lent orders, and, in fact, gives of his time and money liber
ally to piomoia the uplift cf the down trodden and the
welfare of all good works.
If elected governor he will make safe, exemplary execu
tive, and will promote the intercut of all tlio people without
regard to party. His term will open up unfunded prosper
ity for the State, to that even our Democratic friends will he
glad he was elected.
Vote for Walbridge and the best interests cf your State.
