A Boost Missouri Meeting.
A "Seeing Southwest Missouri" spo
clyj train took 250 Missouri editors
and their wives and guest on a 200-
mll Jaunt. The object of the trip was
to show the Missouri press that South
east Missouri Is do longer iimp
land, but has been so changed by the
enterprise of lis awakened citizenship
as to be an object losson to all Mis
souri. The best of It Is that the Chungs
has been brought about not through
too aid of the federal or state govern
ment, but by the citlsens of the bene
fited country, by direct taxation and
already has paid Immense dividends.
Tola meeting of the association real
ly la a boost Missouri meeting. Talks
on Missouri's resources and possibili
ties were made by I-ouls Howie, Cape
Girardeau; 3. J. Roy, Hannibal; J. A.
Runyan, Kansas City: C. II. Gray, vk-e-president
of the St. Louts 4V San Fran
cisco; A. M. Mockery, Gallatin, and A.

r'ians in Missouri If the government
will furnish them. This would reclaim
more than 2,000,000 acres In Missouri.
During the early part of 19P9 nnd
again In 1910 some of the larger to
bacco growers of Platte Clay and
Charlton counties received letters of a
threatening nature because they per
sisted In Increasing their acreage.
Tbla epistles came from Kentucky.
At first they were treated In a
ludicrous light, but when livestock of
some of the growers began to die mys
teriously and bams and other out
houses were found afire, complaint
was made to the federal postal author
ities, who are still Investigating. One
or two letters hinted a raid of Ken
tucky night riders, but nothing of
fce kind ever happened. About this
time, by a coincidence several regi
ments of federal troops marched and
otherwise maneuvered about In Ne
braska and Kansas, cot so far away
from the Missouri tobacco center.
While there was nothing to connect
the two incidents, but a raid on the
part of Kentucky night riders would
have been an Interstate affair and
would have caused immediate Inter
ference on the part of the federal

Work for the Unemployed.
"Work must be found for the un
employed men and women of Missouri.
Kach and everyone willing to toll Is
entitled to a chance to cam living
and at wages which will supply all
necessltlea of life to them and their
families. The employment ought to
be of the klui which will last all the
year through. It Is the sacred duly of
those who are blessed with more than
their share of the goods of life to de
vote their spare time and energy to
devising means, and using their sur
plus capital toward creating constant
employment for their less fortunate
brother and sisters." In substance,
this will be th.i opening theme of the
part of the Rod book of 1910 or the
bureau of labor atatlstlcs, devoted to
Missouri's free emjloyment bureau.
In this last report Commissioner J. C
A. Hl'.ler departed from the ordinary
routine publication of his predecessors
by coming out boldly and declaring
tliat much crime was due to the des
peration which accompanies hunger,
cold, and lack of proper shelter and
other actual necessities of life. "Live,
but lot live, could be added to five
or six other suitable, conscience sooth
ing axioms, to be constantly kept be
fore the minds' eye and these. If car
tied out to the letter dally, would
make Indigestion and Insomia disap
pear from Uie borne of many a mil
lionaire. Along this tone the chapter
in question will continue to run, the
sole Idea being to appeal to well-to-do
humanity to give more attention
toward supplying work to the unem
ployed of Misfourl.
The Free Employment Bureau.
"It Is estimated that In the fiscal
year Just closed the state free em
ployment bureau of the state saved
IU.:SS for 7.114 men and women by
f ircishlng them with employment
without cost. The lowest cha-ge of a
private employment agency for this
service was $1. but for St. Louis,
Kansas City and St. Joseph, the pre
vailing fee was $3 00. The figures
representing the saving of the un
employed were reached by using the
low average of $2.00 per applicant
In reality the saving was close to
$16,300. as the prevailing saving un
doubtedly was higher. Then, again,
those needing fcelp saved their fee by
making their wants known to the sta'e
free employment department. Add
ing this latter saving, the total amount
saved was about $25,000. The great
est draw-oack to a private agency,
when It is honestly ran (and a great
many are), is the fact that the fee
paid by the applicant It generally the
last money he or she has, sod Is
urgently needed for food and -.,.e,
which fact alone makes fre employ
ment bureaus worth toe cost of keep
ing them up."
