on rules, provtdod for the consideration of
nominHtions in open executive session He
ssiid that the senate was mki:i; itself ridic

tors knew perfectly well that most of the in
formation of a confidential character wa
betrayed by members of the senate. He did
not thiuk it would be possible to accomplish

of tbe proceedings of the secret session
of Monday, particularly the criticism in a
ew York paper of tbe attitude of tbe Dem
ocratic senators who voted for the confirm
ation of Warraoth.

Jekvkrscn City, Mo., March 5. State
Treasurer Ed T. Noland was ermanently
susini!el from office yesterday afternoon by
QOTSrnor Francis, and it is believed the de
posed officer is a defaulter to the amount of
about :..". ooo. In accordant with state law,
the governor will begiii quo warranto pro
ceeding ii tor,, the supreme court, which
meets next Monday. At S o'clock yesterday
aftermsiii Noland entere I the executive de
p.'ti tinont and was notitled af the governor'
action The treasurer walked out of the
boi litif:. ami thereafter had nothing to say.
Telegrams werosent to all the depositories
of the state to lets by thegovernor, notifying
th. in lhat he had taken charge of the office.
What I he liovernor Says.
Governor Francis said last evening: " My
investigation into the affairs of the treasury
dap u tnieiit is not completed, but 1 have dis

precipitates ramoTS cncM-ning the irregu
larities discovered In tbe strs?t 'he aniouut
is pliic.sl nil the way from $30,000 to
Was the asli l.nst at I'oker"
If the governor so desired he could have
examine l the treasurer's books at anytime
without suspending him and thus have saved
Noland's ivputstK u, but in taking the ac
tion which he did Governor Francit uuques
tionably felt assured that he could disclose
irregularities which would warrant Treas
urer Noland's permanent suspension and the
appointment of a successor. A bondsman is
quoted as saying that the shortage is $3,u00,
that most ot the money was lost playing
poker, and that it has all been made good by
tbe boudsmeu putting up $1,000 each. Tbe
money, the bondsmen say. was lost in Kan
sas City and New York. Treasurer Noland
refuses to affirm or deny the story, but
friends say that he never plays poker.

From all that 1 can learn the shortage will
not exceed $83,000, and it is prolaxbly not
that much Some of the bondsmen, I am
told, huvc signified their willingness to pay
$6,000 or $7,000. which it will average for
those bondsmen who are unable to pay. and
for others w ho could not put tbeir affairs
into such shape that the money could not be

to cover the sh STtaga For some reason the

Mr. Thurston began with a history of the
rise of the club system, an I paid a compli
ment to Secretary Humphrey, whose work
he said was largely the cause of the pres
ent prosperity of the league, and whoso re
election ho earnestly urged. He said the
league was not intend-d to take the place of
or antagonize the regular pnrty organiza
tion, but rather shall co operate w it h and
in some respaOtS be auxiliary to it.
Tlie Vll Si Voter a Tower.
He said that each club in th.; league should
be put on a permanent lias is, a club room se
cured and regular meetings held. Political
questions should be studied and discussed
and every effort made to disseminate valua
ble inlorination and Increased political
knowledge. "Republicanism," he continued,
"has nothing to fear from educational meth
ods and intellectual invest i.iti m. The two
jiarties are so evenly divided in present
strength that whichever one secures a ma
jority of the first voter at any national elec
tion will most likely succeed. It s therefore
most important to win the young men to
the Republican party. $
An Indorsement ol Speaker Reed.
After declaring that the league will not
nominate, but elect, presidents, and ihat a
warm and h -arty indorsement should be
given rVesktettt Han ison, the speaker went
"We rejoice to-day that we have a Repub

Mr. Thurston closed with a eulogy of the
Republican party, a declaration that the
south aud Tennessee ware !' puhlieau to
