It was foolish on the part of
Senator Stone t o believe that
Governor Iladley had no proof at
hand when he charged that the
senatorial primaiy election was
not honestly conducted- Demo
crats inay depend on dead voters
for majorities, but a Republican
governor is not apt to depend on
the ashes of burned ballots for
proof of Democratic election
In 1HCC3 DeArmond, Democrat
ic nominee, received 17,574 votes.
In 1910, at a special election,
Dickinson, Democratic nominee,
received only 16,676 votes. That
does cot look like a landslide,
especially when it is admitted by
t ii e Democratic chairman that
Dickinson polled 90 per cent of
the Democratic vote of the dis
trict, while the Republicans poll
ed only 70 per cent of their vote.
Governor Iladley has indicted
Senator Stone on evidence fur
nished by Democrats and verified
by public records. Stone can't
escape the indict ment by denying
the veracity of the governor.
The people know how Governor
Iladley handles the truth, and
are familiar with the public re
c o r d of Stone. They believe
Iladley. Calling the governor a
liar is not a decent procedure for
a senator whose title to office
has been questioned for more
than a year by Pood men in his
harsh critic exacting to a fault.

Rome Rile Proposition,
Everybody has something to
say about tbe 6th district elect
ion. What of it? One little con
gressional Missouri district can
not change the minds of the
people relative to the principles
and policies of the Republican
party. The people o f the 6th
district are a reasonable folk yet
they have never taken very kind
ly to Republican rule. There
suits of the late election are ap
parent but did it ever occur to
tbe critic that if Republican
prosperity and confidence were
removed from that d'tr!ct every
mother son of them Democrats
vrould move out too, they would
hardly stay there over night.

None but the initiated know the
accuracy required in a printing
office. The average reader who
detects a misspelled word or a
letter upside-down feels that his
mission on earth is not accom
plished until be has called tbe at
tention of the editor to the glar
ing defect. He dots not notice
the thousands and tens of thou
sands of letters that are in place,
or the multitude of words correct
ly spelled but his eagle eye is
glued to the one out of place.

The Hadley home rule propos
ition has a different aroma from
the bill Senator "Snake" Kinny,
the St Louis saloon keeper and
Democratic statesman got
through the Democratic State
Senate last year. The Demo
cratic senators pronounced the
Kinney , bill a genuine home rule
measure, and promptly passed it.
They ridiculed the home rule bill

and adopted by the Republican
Under the Kinney bill tbe
saloons of the big cities would re
thrown into city politics to con
trol the selection of an excise
commissioner and the manage
ment of the police department,
and the state would have no
power whatever t o com pell
obedience of law. The lid would
be lifted, the police would never
bother the saloons, and the liquor
interests would become more
patent than ever in municipal
politics. Under the Iladley bill,
the governor and the mayor
would have power to remove ex I
cise and police commissioner for
failure or refusal to enforce the
Do the people of tbe state want
to deliver the big cities to the
vicious elements, or do they de

dinary extent in th" notoriously

protest - was heard through
out the state, and thu so calle d
Democratic harmony t tint pre
vails now is not iaven'kin deep.
Citizens o f St. Iouis studied
the returns of 1'jc attentively
and could have n o doubt that
some of the Democratic workers
bad been deep in tbe manipulation
of tho wards of the cities where
their schemes could be carried
through. After the full returns
of the rotate election of November,
1908 became available, it was
seen that an asrriihin,r vote had
been cast in Kansas- Cit, and
that this vote, however it may
have been managed; elected the
whole Democratic 'state ticket
outside of governor and lieu
tenant governoY. "I t appeared
from the footings in Kansas City
that the Democrats had gained
10,000 there to a Republican gain
of 2000, and this in spite tf the
fact that Bryan 'lost tbe state,
and .that, the Republican vote in
Missouri was mucll Ihi laVgost
ever cast. The figures are the
proof that something mysterious
went on in one .brancl,;of the
Democratic tactics in tho large
cities, and that Ball and Folk al
ao suffered from it. A recouut
would be of assistance ju prevent
ing a repetition of robberies of
the people at the ballot box. The
