The Democrat takes pleasuro in preuenting above a s(lendid
lialf-touo portrait of- Hon. Joseph W. Folk, tlio able prosecutor of
St. Louis whoso name is now on tho tongue of every citizon of
voting ago in tho state. Mr. Folk through his friends is now an
avowed candidato for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination,
and his friends aroalready doing good work in his bolmlf. Joseph
W. Folk needs no introduction to tho people of Missouri. His
record as Circuit Attorney of St. Louis, in tho prosecution and
conviction of boodlers, is ono of which tho entiro stale is proud.
Such work is deserving of tho highest honor the people can confer
upon a faithful servant. With Mr. Folk as tho Democratic candi
dato for Governor, tho Republicans will bo without an issue, and
without a candidato whom thoy could loyally support, after the
liberal and unqualified endorsements thoy have given Mr. Folk
