The members of the organization have come to regaid such occasions as something to be looked forward to with pleasure as fur nishing views and expressions Inde pendent of those put forward by their own officers. Mr. Herbert's speech proved to he different from any hereto fore listened to in the club room in the beginning of -the year. It waa filled with witty stories, well told, and per tinent to the occasion; it told how Kan sas City's progress was watched by Kansas people and how the success of this city was so associated with the ad vancement of Kansas that commercial ly, at least, the state line had been wiped out. Mr. Herbert was introduced by John W. Speas, vice president of the Com mercial club. The Kansas editor said he could ask no higher compliment than that accorded him in being invited to address "the most important commer cial body in the world." and then, pass ing to the subject of his speech, he said that in the great wave of civic righteousness now going across the county, Missouri is in the lead, tha busiest factor in a revival of repentaa and reform. "The respect shown by the Missouri people for the law and good citizenship in response to the call of determined officers is so splendid that Missouri is redeemed," Mr. Herbert said. "And If you will pardon the comparison, let me say that if the officers of Kansas were as persistent and unrelenting as the officers of Missouri they would have the majority of the Kansas people with them at any cost." Continuing, he said. In part: "Hasn't this state been bettered in more ways than one by the enforce ment of law? Haven't homes been more homelike? Haven't men been manlier? Yes, things, are infinitely better than they -ftere, and Missouri should hold fast to that which is good. And the law will rule In Kansas.- There will be no mercy on the officers who sanction de fiance of law; They are equally guilty with the law breakers and should be as - relentlessly prosecuted."
