Rolla Wells, Democratic candidate for
Mayor, returned to St, Louis yesterday
after a stay of ten days' duration in the
East. He appeared at his ofiice shortly
after his return and held a reception, near
ly all his colleagues on the ticket having
called to pay their respects.
Mr. Wells said that he had not learned
when the campaign would be formally
opened, but he was ready for It whenever it
came. "That is a matter of detail," he
said, "which is In the hands of the Cam
paign Committee. I am ndWsed that it is
wise not to open the campaign formally
until the Republican ticket is in the field.
I shall take an active part In the campaign
and will address as many of the meetings
as It will be In my power to cover. Of
course, you can readily see that It will not
be In my power to be at all meetings, but
I hope to get to all sections of the city and
meet the voters of every ward. It Is need
less for me to say that I am In this fight
to win and shall spare no labors that will
honorably assist In accomplishing that re

campaign with a noonday meeting next
Wednesday in the headquarters at the Car

to be the formal opening of the Democratic
campaign. That will take place a few days
later, probably nt the West End Coliseum,

yet been definitely determined.

Desperate Efforts of Members of
City Hall Gang to Nominate
' ' Their House Candidates.
Voters Organize to Beat John
Helms in the Eighteenth Ward
Residents of Cabanne Will
' Watch the Polls.'
Realizing that they mny fall utterly In
their plans to control the Mayor's office
during the next four years, the City Hall
gang is concentrating Its greatest effort to
obtain the election of a majority of mem
bers of the Municipal Asembly, hoping, If
they succeed, to "handle" nil tho Important
legislation Incident to the World's Fair
and the period of construction and recon
struction which will precedo the comple
tion of tho great enterprise.
Good citizens In many of the wards have
seen this move, and as a result there are
bitter fights In prospect at the primary
next Tuesday in connection with tho selec
tion of nominees for the House of Dele
gates. The gang Intends to take desperate
chances to put its candidates through, nnd
this is known to its opponents, who out
number the Cltv Hnll workers 10 to 1, even
in the wards where the Zlegenheln machine
Is the strongest.
FlRht on John Helms.
In the Eighteenth Wnrd, the home of
William H. Hahn, Recorder of Deed"?, mem
ber of the Republican City Central Com
mittee, secretary of the same body and

quarters In the Holland building, the de
cent element of the Republican otere has
organized to defeat John Helms, gang can
didate for the House of Delegates. Helms
1 one of the men who voted for the Cen
tral Traction bill and was Identified with
the lighting bill obstructionist?.
John H. Klute. secretary of the Sanders
Duck and Rubber Company, Is the candi
date of the element which Is opposed to
Helms. Henry W. Becker, nsslstant secre
tary of the Mullanphy Board, Is one of the
leaders of the fight on Helms. He called at
the Election Commissioners' office yester
day to request that the voters he repre
sents be allowed to name one Judge for
each of the two polling places In the ward.
It happens that the judges and clerks In
the ward were selected by the City Hall
machine and the anti-Helms people are not
willing that they shall have full sway with
the returns. The Election Board will pass
on the requet to-day. It seems probable
that it will be granted.
In the Tnenty-Eliiutu, Ward.
In the Twenty-eighth Ward a similar sit

of those in the committee who are sup

nomination, has placed bis BaleamalirJohn

choice was made last Monday night at a
meeting of the Republican League Club of

At the meeting of the club last Monday
night at the Arcade it was practically re
son ed that no Jugglery would be allowed at
tho primary, and It was the sense of the
meetlnc that a sufficient number of mem
bers of the club, or other citizens who stand
for fair methods, Bhould go on watch at
the voting places on next Tuesday to pre
vent the perpetration of fraud of any kind.
Tho district voting places will be located
at No. 44G8 Delmar boulevard and at the
Cabanne Arcade. It seems to bo pretty
well understood that the members of the
Citizens' -club will bo prepared to resist
any attempt to use repeaters. Ono of the
leaders of tho movement against tho Myer
son candidate said yesterday:
"I can't say what will happen, but you
can guess what an Amerlcnn citizen will do
If he discovers that he Is being deprived of
his rights."
It will bo decided to-day whether to call
a mass meeting of Cabanne Republicans for
saiuraay-ntgnt at tne Arcaqe to prepare
for the primary In the manner outlined. If
this course is not adopted the plans will be
perfected Monday night at the regular
meeting of the Citizens' club.

Anti-Slate Faction Makes Capital
of Ziegenhein's Intimacy With
Head of Republican Cau
cus Ticket.
"Parker preferred" stock took nn upward
turn in .the local Republican political mir
ket yesterday, and "Zachritz common"
took a corresponding slump, despite the
vigorous efforts, of the anti-caucus bears to
overcome the nervous feeling engendered by
the unexpected nhance.
The break w hlch caused such unusual ac
tivity In the majornlty corner was sprung
by tho caucus candidate, Parker, in his
speech at the Merchants' League Club
Wednesday night. In which he Indicated to
the "shorts" present the promise of an un
usual rise in futures, when he said: "The
men who do the work at the elections are
the hoys who shall have tho nuts."
At thk unexpected announcement hv the
man upon whom the machine is depending
'to work "a corner In nuts" next April, all
the "shorts" hastened to cover, and within
the ensuing twenty-four hours Zlegeheln,
Frank. Houser, Preetorius & Co., Parker's
accredited brokers, were besieged by Zach
ritz followers, eager to get In on the ground
floor. The Zachritz men made herculean ef
forts to head off the stampede and ledcom
the day, and last night they believed they
had succeeded In reassuring their followers
tnatnne advance was the result of false In
formation, and thought they had succeeded
in stead ing the market.
The Parker men, however, and even many
of Zachritz's former steadfast friends be
lieve that the ill-effects of the stampede
may not wear away before Monday.
Zachrlts Makes Political Capital.
Judge Zachritz is preparing to make po
litical capital out of Parker's speech at the
Merchants' League Club, and of the fact
thnt within the last week the caucus candi
date has placed himself completely under
the active management of the Mayor, Is
regularly paraded by the Mnvor "his.
candidate," and Introduced to the gang by 1
Inferenco as a protege of Zlegenheln. This J
ciose association of the "S lk-Stoeklmr'
candidate with Zlegenheln, it Is 'argued,
",u" imuessiiniy impart to barker tho
malodorous taint of Zlegcnhelnlsm. Zach
ritz, bo his friends say, will make every
possible use of this as a campalcn argu
ment against Parker, and will revert to
Parker's reference to the "nuts'' as an
Implication that the caucus candidate Is
already absorbing some of the noxious
articles of faith held by his political tutor
and cicerone.

Itelnstedlcr, nominee on Fllley's In de

didate on his own hook for the same office
at tho Republican nominating primary,
speaks at a meeting, arranged by the Re
publican City Committee, and refers to
Parker ns "our next Mayor."
The Republican machine leaders who are
acting as stage managers for George W.
Parker shifted the scenery after Wednes
day night's scrappy and sensational per-
rormunce nt the Merchants League Club.
It was too realistic for them and por
trayed too truly to the people of St. Louis
tho discord which dwells in the Republican
organization of tho city. Then, too, Mayor
Zlegenheln, who all along has been posing
as the comedian of the company, took It
upon himself to assume a serious role with
out having previously consulted the man
agers, with the result that they decided
to cancel hl3 contract, and last night he did
not appear, thus disappointing audiences In
two meetings In the North End, which had
gathered In expectation of getting a taste
of tho "hot-stuff" he dished up to the crowd
at tho Merchants' League Club the night
One of tho machine managers. In discuss
ing the absence of tho Major, said:
Ho probably won't appear at any more
meetings before the primary."
Parker's friends have opposed from the
start tho Mayor's npparent determination
to lead the slato candidate's campaign. But
up to yesterday the Mayor couldn't see It
that way..
Didn't he go Into the caucus which se
lected Parker and promise the support of
his City Hall gang. Including the City
I Committee? Hadn't he consented to with-
draw as a candidate for Mayor? Wasn't
this a good deal for him to concede? Sure
ly they wouldn't expect him to hide him
self completely! But they did. Just the
same. They wanted his aid and support In
the campaign, but they wanted it "on tho
quiet." They knew that to connect Parker
with Zlegenheln and his gang at the City
Hall would be disastrous to their candidate
and would effectually discredit him In the
eyes of the good citizens of St. Louis, all
of whom have learned by bitter experience
what Zlegcnhelnlsm stands for.
So, after the stormy scene at the Mer
chants' League Club, lnfluenco wasbrought

participation In the primary contest. He
didn't appear last night, and from the
ntatement of one of the campaign man
agers already quoted, It would seem that
he will remain out of sight, while his ma
chine continues to actively assist Parker.
Tho "strenuous life" drama presented by
Parker.Ztogenhein and Zachritz at the Mer
chants' League Club was cut out by the
machlno managers yesterday. More acting
and less of the "real thing" was suggested.
As a result, with Zlegenheln off the stage
last night, and both Parker and Zachritz
refraining from personalities, the perform
ance was tamer than had been expected.
Parker spoke at a meeting of the Second
Ward Republicans, under the auspices cjt
the City Committee, at Union Hall. Broadi
way and Benton street, and 'at a Sixteenth
Ward meeting, under the same auspices, at
a hall at Fifteenth street nnd Cass avenue.
Ho was accompanUd by Fred Krelsmann,
committeeman from tho Twenty-seventh
Ward, who is In charge of the Parker head
quarters In the Union Trust building, and
C. A. Welsh, campaign manager for the St,
Louis Republican Club.
At the Second Ward meeting Charles F.
Wenneker, the only candidate for Collector
on the Republican primary ticket, and Hen
ry Relnstedler, present City Marshal and
candidate for re-election on Ellle's Inde
pendent ticket, and for the regular nomina
tion at tho primary next Tuesday, spoke
before Parker.
Relnstedler surprised those who are aware
of his cIofo relations with Filley by wind
ing up his speech with the remark that
the meeting would "now hear from the next
Mayor of St Louis, George W. Parker."
Somebody, In describing Reinstedler's flop,
remarked that he was clambering "out of
the doad wagon Into the band wagon."
Ex-Coroner Henry Lloyd, who presided,
introduced Porker. The candidate left the
platform and got down next to "the boys."
After declaring that he camo more to seo
tho voters of the ward nnd to bo seen by
them .than for any other purpose, he said
that the local political situation called for
a mart "who could beat the dominant
party," and that he had been selected as
that man. He said: "A number of the lead
ing citizens of St. Louis, representing every
faction In the Republican party, met,
and, in their wisdom, considering all the
candidates In the light of the momentous
Issues Involved and In vlow of the approach
ing World's Fair, when the city and Its
Mayor should be prepared to receive the
potentates and dignitaries of tho nations of
the world rightly, properly and courteously,
decided to select a business man who could
meet tho requirements of the situation, and
they fixed upon me." Following this up he
said: "I think you can very well afford to
defer to the Judgment and wishes of your
leaders, and vote for George W. Parker."
Commenting on the way In which the af
fairs of the city1 should be administered, he
said: "You want to know that every man
who is in the 'city's employ Is not only
faithful, but that he earns his money." In
concluding, after an attack upon the Nes
blt law, he said: "If you aro in favor or
a polluted ballot. If you are in favor ot
stealing election?, then go to the polls next
Tuesday and vote against me."
Tuesday's election Is the .Republican pri
mary. Parker's only opponent for the
majoralty nomination is Judge Zachritz.
