With Shamrock II now lu American
waters and In fine condition to sail for
the Cup, an exceptional interest attached
to the final test races between Constitu
tion nnd the successful Columbia, yes
terday selected as defender.
Loyal Americans will naturally feel
apprehension as well as interest. The
situation is not reassuring.
j." Columbia, it is true, is a better boat
' than when she successfully , held the Cup
in J 899, and, judging from yesterday's
decision, probably faster than Constitu
tion. But Shamrock II is far and away
'the best boat.tbat has ever come across
the water to strive for the Cup and
we'll need a mighty swift craft 10 keep
her from -winning it.
It Is just as well to face the facts. The
America's. Cup is In greater danger this
year than ever before. We bare been
teaching the Britishers many "things
-about the building and racing of yachts.
They hove profited by- the teaching.
Their profit may mean our loss of the
Cup. Remember this We have now
held the Cup for half a century and It's
a' long lane that has no turning.
With the opening of the public schools
teachers will begin the teaching again
of the one .lesson that children never
learn until they are out of school.- The
. lesson is short, but a hard one.
Briefly, it Is the fact that no one suf

Johnny discovers that he can "pass" by

er will not be the. one fooled. If lazy
Susan manages to slide through the
.monthly examination, the teacher does
not get the worst of the proposition.
Johnny and Susan may think that they
are cute, but they are not. They are
the ones who will find that they have
traded poor -work for poor returns. They
. will find after a while that the teacher
- actually did not figure In the problem.
They will " discover thaf while they
thought they were "working" the teach
er they were being "worked" by them
selves. - Improved charts, diversified courses of
study.and new-fangled ideas of pedagogy
bare not changed this lesson since the
time that Adam and; Eve got it into their
heads that "they were fooling the owner

robberies and hold-ups.
As' one of the preliminary steps to
ward puttlng'thla city in shape for the
-World's Fair this comparative Immunity
from crime la noteworthy.
' Many things hare contributed, Chief
Klely explains, to bring "about this re
suit During tbe'past two or three years
-some of the worst criminals have been
sent to the Penitentiary with exemplary
sentences. "This cutting off of the chief
instigators and perpetrators of evil' has
bad the Inevitable effect of lessening
recruits to the world of graft.
The strict surveillance kept over the
pawnshops and secondhand stores
'makes it-difficult far thieves to dispose
of their plunder. Keepers of "fences"
have been sent to Jeffefson City for long
: terms. The new system of Informing
the police of absences from the city dur-
. Ing the summer months has prevented
the wholesale gutting of bouses.
- This work of an adequate police force,
together with the co-operation of Judges
sitting In the two criminal divisions of
the Circuit Court, has made St. Louis a
relatively safe city. "It is a happy
augury for 1000. It Is badnews for the
criminals who. may be anticipating in

Missourians are patient and forbear
ing folk, but this kind of insolent black
guarding is calculated to exhaust their
patience and terminate their forbear
ance. For many years now the Globe-Democrat
has indulged itself iu this habit of
vilification of the people of Its own
State. It does not seem able to live
down its strange hatred of Missouri and
of the people of Missouri. Its editorial
billingsgate leveled at Missouri is fre
quent and as bitter as the Globe knows
how to make it. There Is no. greater
pleasure possible to the Globe than to
find its editorial attacks on Missouri
quoted in the newspapers of other States
as proving Missouri's worthlessness and
degradation. The Globe will Ignore n.
truth of credit to Missouri any time in
order to publish instead a falsehood of
It is not so long ago that the Globe
was proclaiming as truth the He that
Missouri had gone to protest on its State
warrants. It Is now' as groundlessly con
tending that the School Fund of Mis
souri has been looted and that the State
funds of Missouri have been embezzled
or made away with In some other mys
terious manner. Of course, this is all
Globe-Democrat malice, but part of the
outside world believes it to le the truth.
The Globe-Democrat Is in the nature of
a calamity to Missouri.
It is great to be in the midst of things.
It Is worth while to be in trouble If you
have plenty of neighbors In the same fix.
Kansas appreciates its geographical
position by bobbing up serenely from
any sort of discouragement. As the
State of extremes, Kansas holds the
palm. That Is why the world considers
It a first-class barometer.
So it Is no surprise to hear that Kan
sas contemplates happy times around
the farmhouse baseburner this winter!
In the current number of the Review of
Reviews, Professor Frank W. Blackmar
cites a few facts that were forgotten
while the drought reports were being
sent out. Though this year's drought is
the worst since 1800, Kausas is not com
plaining. Yet the loss has been serious, for In
stead of the 134,000,000 bushels of corn
of 1800, this year's crop will not ex
ceed 50,000,000 bushels. Other forage
crops have also suffered in correspond
ing measure. Yet Secretary of ' State
Coburn estimates that Kansas has 40,
000,000 bushels of old corn in crib. Not
only that, but the railroads and Kansas
are on friendly terms; so much so that
Vice President Paul Morton of the Santa
Fe has announced that "if there is corn
to be had anywhere wc will be glad to
haul It into Kansas at reduced rates to
provide feed for live stock."
Last year the live stock Industry net
ted Kansas about $67,000,000. In the
banks are about $70,000,000. The old
mortgages are" all paid. This year's
wheat -crop will bring $60,000,000 on the
farm, or over $8,000,000 more than In
the banner year of 1900. All together
Professor Blackmar estimates the value
of farm products in Kansas at $145,000,
000, about $9,000,000 more than in the
banner year of 1807. ,
This material wealth Is not the only
source of strength in the present condi
tion of Kansas. Being always where It
can be seen, the State is either "in the
dnnps" or in the seventh heaven. The
realization that Kansas is bo much bet
ter off than was anticipated during July
has made the people believe that they
and the nation arc prosperous. They
have, confidence in themselves and in
the State. This combined with the "ac
tual wealth on hand makes the .future
Superintendent Soldan reports, after
having visited the. St. Louis schools fol
lowing their opening for the term of
1901-02, that be found everything in
satisfactory condition and that the
schools have never started with a better
promise of a successful year.
This Is most encouragingvto the par
ents of St Louis school children, and
to all thropghtful folk Interested In the
cat.se. of education. The public schools
of a great city represent the typical
form of education In a free and self
governing country. Their proper main
tenance, their adequacy, for the. 'great
task devolving upon tbem, the organiza
tion of their official forces, are matters
of the most vital Importance. '
Superintendent Bobbin's Informal re
port Is also-an additional, proof of the
value of the services being rendered by

Isn't it rotten?
When the Globe-Democrat mentions
looted school funds It never remembers
that Missouri distributed to the schools
$100,000 more this year than last year.
The Republican organ grudges saying
anything good of Missouri.
It might be well for the Globe-Democrat
to get up a list of prominent Re
publican bankers iu St. Louis who be
lieve that the officers of Missouri have
been guilty of embezzlement through a
long course of years.
When claiming that there Is a dis
crepancy of a million or so in a State
.fund uccouut, the Giobc-Democrat has
tens to add that It accuses no one of
embezzlement. This has all the ear
marks of cowardice.
It is disgraceful enough to be either
ignorant or brazen; and when the Globe
Democrat combines both of these quali
ties in Its efforts to traduce Missouri it
applies for a job under police super
vision. There will be the most diversified con
gress of religions, habitations, costumes,
colors,- industries and tribes in the

Secretary Ellis of the State Board of
Agriculture believes that Missouri River
farmers will diversify their crops beret

not have been such a calamity.
There are several arithmetics that
teach addition and subtraction. It
would pay the Globe-Democrat to In
vestigate their merits before discussing
the finances of Missouri.
Another Illinois man has become dis
gusted with Governor Yates's political
actions and thrown up his appointment.

Missouri Democracy desires no better

Chief Kiely thinks that St. Louis Is a

The men in charge of the World's Fair
have had to undo no mistakes! That
alone marks the Louisiana Purchase
Celebration as a world-beater.
A surpassing educational exhibit at the
World's Fair is demanded by the same
enlightening spirit which calls for a
complete ethnological display.
St. Louis has excellent reason to be
