state of Missouri for John R. Tanner
for governor of Illinois, is not meet
ing with the highest favor at the
hands of the republicans of the state,
wherein the opposition to the self
announced candidate is taking the

throughout Suckerdom. It seems tj

prophet seems to be without honor
save outside of his own country.
Ex-C'oNiRKssi an ItYNUM, of Indi
ana, has his own reasons for the way
the fall election turned ont, and
says: "The election results for the
past few years indicate to my mind
an unrest among the people of this
country that ought to set as to
thinking. This unrest leads the
people to strike at the party in
power. We see it in the municipal
elections, in state elections, and na
tional elections. In any form of
government, save a republic, this
unrest would break out in a revolu
tion. It is all nonsense to sar that
the tariff had anything to do with
the results of the recent elections.
The manufacturers themselves are
perfectly satisfied with the Wilson
law. It is ail ther want. Most of
them are better protected under it
than they would be under the Mc
Kinley law, and it is a greater reve
nue law than the McKinlcy law. I
attribute these sudden turns in elec
tions to the' unrest of the people.
The great combinations of wealth in
this country are leading the common
people to strike back, and it is only
natural they should strike the party
in power.no matter what it may be.1'
Another Word for Morrison.
Senator Mills, of Texas, who is an
outspoken and enthusiastic advocate
of tbe nomination of Colonel Morri
son for the presidency next rear.
thinks that the democrats on cut to
a a. ... - - . .
auanuon all irui and furbelows and
fads and declare for old-fashioned,
andiluted democracy as taught by
the fathers. In the national plat
form. Among the frills and fur
belows and fada Senator Mills places
civil service reform. Tbe Texas
senator says . he is convinced
that the present system tends to
create a class and place a chasm be
tween publio ortice and the great
bodr of the people. If cfflce is not
within the reach of the people, if the
active workers in partr politics can
not be rewarded with the distinction
and emoluments of cilice, the senator
thinks that the people will soon lose
interest in politics, and that would
be bad for the republic. A civil pen
sion list and life tenure of office mast
go hand in hand with civil service.
Senator Mills notes that one of the
principal bureau rhinfa in the execu
tive department of th government,
in his annual report advocates a civil
pension for the blind and lame and
halt in his office. Senator Mills says
public officials will grow old, they
will grow blind, they will grow fee
ble, they grow worthless earlr. If
there were a pension list they would
be apt to grow worthless earlier than
they do now and the unpopular and
disagreeable would be got rid of by
being pensioned and turned loose.

of S. L. Stafford's meat business and

day was largely attended. It took
place from the residence. Tbe cas

of unusual stature. The display
of floral tributes was elaborate.
