A petition containing the declaration
of principles and endorsement of the
course taken by Circuit Attorney Joseph
W. folk, and recommending him as a
suitable candidate for Governor on the
Democratic ticket In 1904, was put In
circulation Wednesday afternoon and
inside of two houri eighty-live Demo
crat)! had signed the paper, while other
Democrats aru placing their names on
the list as promptly as it Is being pre
Hunted, hut few refusals having been
met in any quarter. The disposition
prevails that nn enthusiastic Folk Club
should be organised at once, and it has
been decided to hold a public meeting
lu Circuit Court room Monday night,
August 10, to organize and get lu line
with Democrats all over tho State on
the basis formulated in the petition.
Following is the full text of the dec
laration of principles and the signers
up to the time of going to press:
DKCLAllATION OF l'llISCIPI.ES.
Wheieas, Joseph W. Folk, Circuit
Attorney of bt. Louis, challenges the
udmjration and respect of all law abid
ing citizens of the state of Missouri,
regardless of party affiliations, by his
fearless and able prosecutions in tho
Circuit Court of St. Louis City. Mr.
Folk has fearlessly prosecuted all crim
inals, poor or rich, influential or other
wise, and has done more for the
cleansing of tho body politic than has
ever been done by any one man in the
history of tho State. We recognise in
boodling, bribe giving, bribe taking,
and other crimes of a similar nature
the greatest menace to our free Instl
tutlons. We greatly deplore the prev
alence of those crimes in St. Louis and
Jefferson City, and more especially in
our State Legislature; yet we real lie
that in Mr. Folk's work, and In the
encouragement thereof, lies the rem
edy for the evils above enumerated.
And whereas, Joseph W. Folk,- by
his unswerving devotion to duty and
his splendid abilities, has demonstrated
to the rank and file of the Democracy
of Missouri that he is the most avail
able candidate for Governor of this
great State, and that in that higher
and more responsible position he will
be enabled to complete the great work
he has so well begun.
Therefore, we, the undersigned dem
ocrats of Versailles and Morgan county,
hereby extend an earnest Invitation to
all democrats of this County to meet
with us in the Circuit Court room lu
Versailles, on Monday night, August
10, 1003, for the purpose of organis
ing a Folk Club for the purpose of
using all honorable methods and means
of securing for Hon. Joseph W. Folk
the Domocratla nomination for Gover
nor of Missouri in 1904.
Club has been formed. No effort thus
far Is made to secure names outside the
city, but arrangements will be made
to Include every precinct iu Morgan
County, 'and, If possible, outnumber
any Folk Club in the State.

Mrs. Golden left Linn Creek and took

Mrs. Music has spent her whole life
in Miller tind Morgan counties, two of
her daughters beiug the wives of Geo.

south of Versailles.
Their meeting was purely accidental
and brought about through neighbors
In the vicinity, but after the two had
related incidents of their early livos
thuy soon found that all details com
pared accurately, and for three hours
these two old landmarks stood with
their feeble hauds on each others
shoulder and with tear-staiued clieekj

tenances yet u happiness mingled
with surprise that betokened a re
newal of girlish friendship though
both realized that their nojourn on
earth must be of short duration. They
separated In tears, but declared that
they would have auother meeting if
Providence did not ordain it otherwise.
