Judge Gantt hat concluded not to
resign. Wonder if the man with
the resolution here and there did it,
and il he ain't sorry now he did?
Whenever a man tells you thai if
the party elects such a man to the
Senate the Democrats will carry the
next election, you know at once
where he stands.
In the distribution ol political
pie there is always more pumpkin

Yes, always some pumpkins or
at least they think they are.
Ninety-Six Thousand tickets.
We've raised no issue. The
County Court did it when it had
printed ninety-six thousand ballots
tor the use of Dates county's eight
thousand voters. forty-eight
thousand printed in llutler and
forty-eight thousand in Rich I Iill.
nd the six oflkial ballots printed
(or two weeks in one Cutler paper
and one Rich Hill paper, for which
the Court paid 1534.00. ' When
we first came to Missouri the Dem
ocratic newspapers were then still
roaring about the extravagance of
the Republicans in the use of
printers ink. But the Republi
cans in their palmiest days scarce
ly did so well as the Democratic
County Court jo this instance.Jand
we don't believe they ever will.
They'll repeal the law that allows
it fust. Maybe this is the cause
of our jealousy.
All the talk about cabinet changes
is to much bosh. So are the re

tilths Missouri Senatotinl nice mid
likewise this talk about life leasts

that have obtained (or fifty years
will not be tet aside by President
Uootevelt, There it just enough
Dutch blood in hit veins, and Dutch
grit in hit character, to cause him
to adhere strictly to party customs.
So boyt, don't tear your shirts, or
begin to make grimaces over what
you see in the big city dailies about
these thing. The dailies have to
fill up their space.

Panama has a constitutional
provision disfranchising habitual
drunkards, which might be copied
with advantage in the organic
laws of much older states. How
would such a provision affect
the vote of Missouri?
We would suggest to the legisla
ture a law requiring all cities, hav
ing a population of more than 20,
000 to use voting machines. This
would in a gTeat measure settle the
question of fraudulent counts at
least. Pass sucb a law by ail and
let it be tried.
E. E. Laughlin, of Dates county
spoke on soil fertility, and hit talk
wat cf an intensely interesting and
instructive nature. His thoughts
were practical and if his instruc

county farmers, there will be a gen

of letting it run down.

The enormous cost of war can
only be realized when set down in
aggregates. About $10,000,000 a
week is is the estimate of the cost
of the Russo-Japanes war. That
means about $500,000,000, or a
half a billion dollars a year. Our
civil war of four years' duration
cost the north alone $4,000,000,-
