Taft received 1237 votes in Mor
gan county and Roosevelt 27.'. This
is w litre our old friend Kinloeh is
running a Mill1 Moose paper. Chris
tian Count) Republican.
About light, for once, Ilro. Clay,
but Morgan County was not organ
ized, really no fight made here; just
wait until JOlo,' we'll show you.
Have you seen the total vote for
R.ioscudt and Tail, especially Taft's
vote in the electoial college?
Wc have either read it, heard it, or
dreamed it that our old friend and
fcllow-sinnu, Chas. 'E. Held, ol the
Oark Democrat, will be a candidate
(or is) lor the , Ozark postoffice.
Hope his experience may be different
to ours of 1005, but don't believe the
grafters and thieves will run things
under the new administration, as hss
been the custom. Of course $000
for such a job is not much, but not
many men like to be openly robbed
especially after spending their best
years in working for the party, and
and making it possible for the candi
dacy and election of the very thieves
that tried to hold us up for S500
Reid has earned the office many
times, by his bull moose way of com
ing up to rack every time the bugle
blew, whether there was any hay or
not. Here is hoping, old fellow,
that you can write 1 M. after your
name on March oth, 1013, or as soon
thereafter as possible, if not sooner,
and that you won't have to cough up
no S5500 to get it.

Our influuice with the new adminis
tration is not ol much value, but we
know that Cov-elect Major will find
no better man for the situation than

The Morgan County Republican
FOR 50 CENTS
Having decided not to giveuponac-i
count of our enemies, or "loving friends"
fx either, we have decided to offer the w
t people of Morgan County, the State of
jg Missouri and mankind generally the big-$
jo gest kind of a big bargain.
The postoffice department has caused us to mark off JJ
and set over on our deadhead list 115 names.. Thisw
Camden Ccunty got out with an
expense of about I S025. 00 for print
ing and publishing ballots,
It was no wonder the fellow re

Cittu-gie Las put up a fund to fur
nish all e-piesiiiunis and their wives
heieatter a pension of $25,000 per
je.tr. Of course Carnegie is a canny
Scot. He fixed it so as to exclude
Roosevelt, forgetting that the Col. is
still good for at least S12 a week.
T.ift don't need it, and won't have it

a national poor farm for tiiem, and
I t Carnegie, il he just must get riil
ot his ill-gotten asli, pension poor
disabled newspaper men they ate
all poor, and most ol them crippled,
in the head at least and yet, the
pooi devils would probably scorn the
gift, for they are leitainly as inde
pendent a lot as Roosevelt, Taft, or
Carnegie himself. Ouess the old cuss
will have to keep his money as long
as he can and when he it. compelled
to let goof it he will probably be in a
h 1 of a fix.
The Haprists, in their' new bible,
have knoo.ed out hell, and we sup
pose the devil goes with it. Let us
know, please, for we hae been con
fident the old fellow would get his,
sooner or later.
We understand that the new paper,
Versailles Public and High School!, .
.... . Anient-
Kegister, was considerably oil color
last issue, poorly printed and running
to boilei plate and stale matter from
the Statesman. The Versailles
school has had the free use ol all the
Versailles papers eversince the Mor
gan County Ru'UIii.ican came to town
but probably thought they could
improve matters, and might be all
right if they had a printer. Why not
add a School of Journalism? They
have one at Columbia, and Versailles
can't afford to take a back seat for
such a backwoods town as Columbia
As London Saw The Election.
Allouing for the 3-:ornered handi
cap, and the further handicap much
greater in Amcrciun politics even than
it would be in liritish that he had
only an extemporized organization
barely three months old, Mr. Roose
velt's performance was a wonderful
He caried such great slates as Illi
nois and I'ennyslvania outright, and
secured a fifth of the electoral college.
Had the Republican patty's con
vention adopted him instead of Mr.
Talt he would pretty evidently have
got in : and the miserable showing
made by the outgoing ('resident, who
only polled a few ol the most insignifi
cant states' bears out all that wis said
bv the Rooseveltites about his candi
dature being foisted on the parly a
gainst the w ish of the great majority
Incidentally, it also suggests how
small the "conservative" vote in the
United States must now he;" though
probably many conservatives supported
Doctor Wilson in the belief that Mr.
1'alt had no chance. His e'ection to
the presidency four years ago, which
was recieved at the time with universal
favor, has proved one of the most
unqualified disasters tha'. ever befell
his party a reflection which Doctor
Wilson, as in his tin n he enters the
White House untried amid very
similar enconiums, will peihaps pon
der and digest.
The sweeping victory of ?,.r. Roose
velt over Mr. Taft means, presumably,
that the Progressive paity will" go on,
and may reabsorb in its victorious
ranks the relics ol the-of'ficial Republi
cans, litany c'e the parly will be
strong' enough' in the Senate and Con
gress to get a hearing, and will have
opportunities oi maKing tne running
for Doctor Wilson, if he does not
progress fast enough'.- What emerges
most significantly from the election
result, as it did from the election
ampaign, is that the majority of the
an people have awakened to a
keen dissatisfaction with things as
they are and the laws and administra
tions under which they live; that a
great forward surge is agitating the
mighty mass, and that though someol
its purposes may be confused ami some
of its battles still fought in a halllight,
there is enough will and vitality in the
gigantic Nation to carry it forward to
final victory. London Chronicle. .

They were released from their

There was a time when the tailroads

Perhaps it is safe to believe that a

that President Hush of the Missouri

"She was taken suddenly sick with
