Association at St. Joseph last

advocated and the sentiments ex

members of the association.
Capt. Henry King, of the (Jlobe
Democrat, was elected president
II. II. Mitchell, of the HiM.nville
Uepublican, secretary and 11 J.

public, vice president for the
Sixth congressional district, by
the Uepublican editors at St.

O. W. Neff, editor of the Neva
da Herald, has been appointed
Postmaster at Nevada. Mr. Me
Anulty, who lias held the oftie for
eight years, was not a candidate
for re-appointment. Mr. McAn
ulty retires from office with the
respect and friendship of all lie
publicans who believe in "a
square deal" and an equitable
distribution of pie.
In a session of two and a half
hours last Friday the house took
favorable action on ltt pension
bills. Under the rules the bills
are considered the tirst time in
committee of the whole, after
which they are formally passed
by the house. The whole num
ber was put through the latter
course by speaker Cannon in just
elevt'ii minutes. Forty-two of
the beneficiaries are blind and
sixty-eight are paralyzed.

duced similar bills. The Khodes
measure has been amended so as
to extend its provisions to the
militia ry organizations of other
states, and therefore becomes a
matter of general legislation
rather than purely local to Mis
souri. Not more than " per cent of
the enrollment of the militia or
other similar organizations would
be affected. Mi. Rhodes says, af
ter a thorough investigation of
the subject, and there should be
no fear of greatly adding to the
expenditures for pensions under
this act. The militia was organ
ized under proclamation of Gov.
(.amble and has been credited
with saving Missouri to the
union. The representatives from
other states having similar or

More Information on the State
School Fund Debt.
There is still a demand from
Democratic quarters that the Re
publican officials of the state an
nounce that they have discover
ed in connection with the school
fund, from their ''look at the
books." This further discov
ery in addition to what has al
ready been told in dispatches to
the Globe-Democrat, has been
made that the interest paid by
the tax payers of the state on the
school and county certificates of
indebtedness exceeds the face
value of those certicates $1,140,
o."-7. ';.". In other words the cer
tificates amount to ?4,oOH,syt.42,
while the tax payers have paid in
interest upon them a sum aggre
gating Srv.o'.t.lW.tw. That fact
in itself, should pretty nearly ap
pease the cry for information,
more particularly as it isn't just
to the liking of the fellows who
have been yearninitto be told of
the discoveries resulting from
"looking at the books."
Nearly everyone will remem
ber the celebration held in
r.to;! to mark the extinguishment
of the state debt, and how it was
made a strictly Democratic af-
fair, for which ex-Gov. Critten-
den criticised the administration

There is the evidence, which
comes from a high Democratic
source', that thv celebration over

nor has it been sim e. When the

maxim may be misapplied If
the individual citizen divs not

the court of law means little to
the criminal. Each man should
clearly express himself on all

honesty and justice.
