The four car loads of seed corn and rota toes ordered by the Merchants' Exchange for the relief of the drought sufrerers la Ozark, Wright. Douglas and Texas coun ties were purchased yesterday and will be shipped to-day. Subscriptions yesterday 1 swelled tho fund to 3.515.25. and after pay ing for the four car loads mentioned and de ducting the amount paid on the two car loads of supplies Eent to Taney County, the committee will have only a few hundred dollars left. It Is now a question before the committee what county to relieve next. One of the members stated that If they "had $10,000 more it would be none too much to meet the urgent needs of worthy people in South western Missouri. The seed purchased will give only a small measure of relief in the counties to which It is tent. Like Taney, Wright. Douglas, Ozark and Texas may be forced to make further calls for assistance. And not only in the southwestern part of the State, but In the southeastern section, aid Is needed. Carter. Iron. Wayne and Reynolds counties report distress, which is now being Investigated by officials of the Iron Mountain Railway. This line traverses the territory, and the road Is disposed to do what it can toward aiding the buffering. The members of the exchange committees are anxious that the suggestion of J. " Evans of Kansas City will be adopted, di viding the btricken section into districts. Kansas City taking the extreme western counties, particularly Barry and Stone. while Springfield could look after Chris- tian. and comnlete the work m Tanev.

HERE ON "PERSONAL BUSINESS" None but Politicians Grace the Levee Congressmen to Speak at Rival Factional Clubs To Night and To-Morrow. Congressmen Richard Bartholdt and Charles A. Joy were In their element yes terday as the centers of the political hopes of a hundred or more stalwart Republicans who want Jobs. During the greater part of the day the two Congressmen were ot the Southern Hotel, where they listened to the con-plaints and heard the heart yearn ings of more than one ofllce-seckcr. As the official distributors ot Federal patronage In St. Louis they were "It." WlthaL they had a fine time. Congressman Bartholdt has opened head quarters en the parlor lloor of tho Southern. In a silk hat and Prince Albert he looked the part which he has been gtven by his admiring constituents. During the last few months bis popularity has Increased In this city In proportion with the degree of con fidence In which be la held by the President. Vet there is a speck In the cream. Per sistent rumors have spread regarding the efforts of the Kerens faction in the Tenth District. Yesterday another story was to the effect that Reid Northrup, relative of the Goulds, was not averse to taking the nomination If It were offered to him. An other tale had for its Interest the fact that the secretary of the committee was work ing actively against the South Side Con gressman. Bartholdt Gives His Views. These things apparently did not worry Doctor Bartholdt to a great extent. "I did not come home to build fences," he said. "Most of the bills In which I am interested are well under cover during this week so that I could run heme and see my friends. I do not know whether there will be a meeting of my Congressional Committee. I see no necesiity of having an earlier con vention than usual. The Tenth District Re publicans usually try to have it in June or July. I think that ought to be the rule now. I Btlll think that Welnbrenner wlU be appointed to the Marsbalshlp. This ap pointment will hardly be made during this eek." Asked if he was In favor of Postmaster Baumhoff's reappointment. Mr. Uartho.dt sold: "We have not come to that bridge yet. Mr. Baumhoff stands high In Wash ington on account of his excellent record. He has made a good Postmabter. I have not been officially informed of the Florshelm appointment." it is said that A. W. Rehfeldt's reason for turning against Congressman Bar tholdt was his failure to land the chief deputyshlp of the Internal Revenue Office. He was an applicant, and thought that he deserved the place. Joy Visits Ilia Friends. Congressman Joy was as debonair as us ual. He was dressed In a becoming spring suit, and greeted his friends with his old time cheer. It took him more than an hour to go from his office In the Bank of Com merce building to the Southern Hotel. TJ friends who Joked him about the Eleventh District Committee, he remarked: "Oh. we have to have our fun. you know. The boys like to keep things lively. It will come out all right In the end. Of course, you under stand that I am here on business only pOrely personal business." When the "Get-nlm-qulck" Welts telegram was mentioned ho laughed and dismissed the subject after expressing his opinion' of the person who gave the Information away. There were many callers to see the two Congressmen. Collector of the Internal Revenue Ben F. Westhus. Surveyor of the t-ort uauenKamp. v.nairman rlemlng of the Tenth District Committee.

Roberts of Springfield returned to St, Louis from Washington with Con gressman Bartholdt. He Is the right hand man of State Chairman Aklns, and his counsel is considered reliable by the two Congressmen. On his wav in Rtnf h.H. quarters he dropped into the office of Na tional Committeeman Kerens, but did not remain long. Roberts is good enough poli tician to keep on speaking terms with every Republican In the Kerens faction. George P. Welnbrenner saw the two Con gressmen, and received reassurances of their undying loyalty. It is said that the name of Ferdinand Schrelner was signed to the charges made against Mr. Welnbrenner. The Jury Commissioner has been unable to d!covcr such a man. Both Conpreoemcn Bartholdt and Joy will speak at the meeting of tho St. Louis Re publican Club to-night. It Is expected that lh.ere,-.wm k" a ,ar&e turnout of the faith ful. The two Congressmen will also appear night, where they will endeavor to thaw some of the congealed atmosphere. E.
