Rf.I'Uiilican said about it in issue of
Feby. 6th, and had suggested the
same way out some' time previous,
but haven't time to hunt it up.
While we do not claim any particular
credit, yet we want to show our read-
rs that our suggestions are on the
progressive line and that we arc al
ways willing to help the "boys" out
of a scrape, whether they are Demo
crats, Standpatters, etc. We have
advocated many plans for city im
provement, and suggestions for better
things in city and county, taken up
and discussed by a verstile writer in
the Statesman of week before last.

The Imperial State seems to be up
against it on her bonds, or rather up
against the money trust, 'A 1-2 per
cent interest, but nobody wants them.
Why not raise the rate and make it 8
percent? Somebody is talking of
paying a St. Ixiuis firm something
near $150,000 to place the bonds.
With our state officers, the owl-like-
wisdom-wise legislature, and our business-like
Capitol Commissioners, all
drawing good salaries to attend to the
State's business, and then pay a St.
1.0111s hrm hi 10,000 real money to
hire somebody to buy Missouri state
bonds is surely an unusual proceed
ing. At the rate the new Capitol
is being built the sinking fund will
pay lor it, and save the interest.
Why not put the bonds with the
school certificates and pay interest
on them? In this way the interest
could be added to the sinking fund
and that would give enough to pay
for the work as it proceeds, and also
supply a plenty for the gralters, and
such an arrangement could be con
tinued indefinitely, just as the school
certificates ol indebtedness are.

lace of Kansas City.hai not been able
to appear before the committee.
Judge Wallace is a supporter of the
Hawkins local option bill, which is a
bill not worth talking about, and has
wished to attack the Hay county unit
bill, which is an effective measure.
Senator Casey will insist that if his
committee is forced to report, its re
port will be adverse to the Hay bill.
Senator liuford will then move tl at
the bill, be placed on the calendar,
despite the action of the committee
and Mr. Pallen predicts that the Bu-
ford motion will be lost by a vote of
17 to 13, thus killing the county unit
bill in committee.
Mr. Pallen tells us in his dispatch,
which has gone unchallenged three
days, despite the gravity of the
charge, that members of the Senate
are going to run away Irom voting on
the measure, thereby enabling the
Hudweiser statesmen to kill it.
Senator Bronson is going home
whenever the county unit bill is due
to be voted on. He has a number
of law cases that demand his attention
at this convenient moment and he
won't be in Jefferson City when the
people of the State want him there,
despite the fact that they pay him a
salary to represent them as a senator.
Senator Hawkins ol Green County
also has a number of law cases that
call him home at a convenient mo
ment and he won't be there to vote,
though he will draw his salary out of
the Missouri treasury just as if he had
been present when needed.
Senator Feaster, a physician, will
hear that a lot of his home people are
sick and needing his services and he
plans to be away, though the taxpay
ers of Missouri pay him to be present.

ably) represent their constituents in
