ROBERTA. TURNER, EDITOR Any man who is unwilling to give a reason for bis (."pinion.- is usually the owner of unreasonable opinions. The democratic party of Ohio was somewhat insulting last week in their resolutions that declared ''No outside elements wanted. Any financial system that forces farmers to Bell their farms under mortgage for half their value can not be galvanize'! Into honesty. That man is a traitojr who gives aid and comfort to the enemies of his country whether those enemies are without or within the country's border-. It is a matter of Impossibility to present a bigger f. rce : • an intelli gent people than the proposition to establish bimetallism by interna national agreement. Any man who can again be fool ed into voting for "sound mone; and prosperity by the republican route, should be led to an .oculis for sound treatment. The coming of "prosperity" ha now been postponed until after harvest. The fear is that the gol darned thing will monkey along until it gets frost bit—Guard, De fiance, Ohio. The American government is the only one on earth which has ever originate.! the proposition to sub mit its financial legislation to the approval of foreign powers and deadly enemies. Why can't the Normal Board treat Prof. Morgan with as much respect as they do Prof. Getz, More than a month has passed and Prof. Morgan is still in the dark as to retention. This everlasting gabble about "honest money" as though the government ever made any other kind, shows that men realize the necessity for making up in talk what is lacking in fact. Do YOU think it would be at all difficult to raise an army of volun teers who would agree to take care of all the foreign silver that could or would be 'dumpedon our shored in the event of our returning to free coming. If the charges against Prof. Getz are false, the board should clear the matter up and that at once. It should be done in justice to Getz as to themselves. The action of the board convinces the people that there is something radically wrong and that investigation is not court ed, but on the other hand feared. The contributors to the celebra tion fund met at the city hall Tues day evening and resolved to make an effort to hold a county fair this fall' A committee was appointed to solicit funds for that purpose consisting of R. B. Wilson, E. T. Barden. S. C. Smith, Tims, Haley, S. T. Packwood. J. P. Sharp, W. A. Conant, W. H. Talbot, B. F. Reed. F. Bossong, Phil Lewis, Thomas Meaghers, F. M. Scheble, Conrad Rose, J.C. Gooywin, Thos. Gambol and Chas. B. Reed. It is estimated that it will be necessary to raise about $1,000 in addition to what money is now on hand. Every rancher that can do so, and all can do something, should co-operate with the commitee and thus help to bring about an excel lent fair, which will be of more real benefit to the farmers than any other class of people in the county. Let every one do all he can for the fair. Hard on Missourians. Give the devil his dues. At the came time don't try to cheat an editor out of what is due him if he does happen to hail from the state of •"corn bread and outlaws." Tha "Little Missouri in," as a certain official has seen lit to term him. or "the little whiffet," as a certain legal luminary in our fair city duos him. "has spoke." In last week's Daws was the first time I ever knew of au editor appealing to the people to believe him when he tells them he writes some of Ids editorials. I never knew of an editor nut getting his dues, i have known feme getting more than I thought was their due when some damphool taking of fence at something appearing in the paper would give the editor a thumping. But then I thought maybe the fellow was acting on the theory that it was mure blessed to give than to receive. In the pres ent case we should give credence to what the "little Missourian" says. The people of Oregon and Washington don': know of all the things that have come from Mis souri. They know that Price's army came from there; but they arc not generally aware that the principal and trustees of our normal school ate' from there. It is said somewhere, either in sacred writing- or by Josh Billings, thai we should not despise small thing?. There was a time prior to the ad* vent of the "little Missourian"' and hi- friends ?) in our midst that things were d'jue on a large scale, but since that wave of McKinley's prosperity swept - over this laud we are willing to notice small things, Even the "little Miesou riam' and his friends ?; having ttie management and control of our normal are attracting some at tention. I would suggest that in* stead of singing psalmi to dead mules, you and your friends'?.; would organize a quintet club and chant dirges to a dead school. Of course that would presuppose you to have sufficient control over the members of your club to prevent them from smelling after a two bit piece long enough to join in the singing. You might take a Span ish burro in to add dignity and in telligence to the crowd. Give tbe devil his due - and pay no attention to the language of the poet when he say-: "Tone down the fact.- to ear- 1 polite, and keep dan.nation out of sight," and the your full measure of glory without regard t" your place of nativity. You are comparatively a young man and must remember it took years of toil for the men you men tion to attain theis eminence, as it has your friends ? ■.
