St Iouis Republican CInb Repu
diates tlie Action of the
Two Colonels.
National Committeeman Comes in
for Censure "Boodlers"
the Subject of Last
Eight s Meeting.
According to sentiments advanced at last
Bight" 8 meeting of the St. Louis Kcrubllcan
Club, there Is as much harmony existing
between the members of that organization
cud the Phelps-Kereas faction as there is
between a red rag and an Infuriated buU.
Resolutions, teeming with denunciation
and repudiation of the Phelps-Kerens plea
Jor Republican harmony, were unanimously
adapted, and speech after speech, declaring
the unwarranted action of the two CoioneU
as "nothing but an effort to widen the
'breach in the Republican party" were re
ceived with enthusiasm.
The hall and parlors of the club wero
thronged with Republicans of the practical
Irlnd, and their action in denouncing the
Sollcy decided upon a few days ago in tho
issourl Pacific Railroad onlces Is con
ceded to mean that such harmony as prajed
-for by l'helps and Kerens Is not desirable
among the ranks of the local Republican
Jrty. . ,
The chief Interest of last night's meeting
centered about the adoption of the declara
tion prepared at the request of the- Board
of Directors, by a committee, composed of
Qeo. I). Reynolds. Charles Parsons, James
It. MlnnlB. U J. W. Wall and O. F. Fischer,
II. D and which in part was as follows:
Strong; lie-solutions Panned.
The time having arrli-d for the nomination anl
lection of ele.egates to our fctate and Judicial
convention, the 8t Tuls Republican Club con
siders It proper to address itself to Republicans
at this city. Therefore, as a RepjKlcan club.
yr maks the following declarations and appeals:

In prercntlng the declarations for adop
tion. Colonel George D. Reynolds, chairman
of the committee, in a brief address, stated
that tho Republican party of St. Louis Is
to-day confr6nt'-d with a situation that
does not often happen in other cities.
"We have read of the rascality of our
lellow-citlzcr.s, who previously stood high
In the community," tsJd he,, referrtac to
the Grand Jurj investigation, "and we were
disgusted at the awful exposition made in
this city No one will therefore misunder
stand thd.alIusions 10 boodlers mede in the
declarations which I am about to present
to your consideration.
"We learn with great astonishment that
In the last few days certain taen of- our
party and othcra who had nothing to do
with the party met In one of the offices of
a railroad corporation and organized to
forestall our .honest efforts at tho primaries
arid attempted to ellctate who should Ue'del
"gates In our coming convention They un
dertook to dictate who our committeemen
should be and set up a dishonest pica for
Jjarty harmony. In view of these two con
ditions. It was decided to draw up a state
ment and declaration that would show tee
true position of this club."
Colonel Reynolds then proceeded to read
, toe declaration, and was frequently inter
tspted by vigorous applause.

. 'publican League Club, James Welsh, IS. C.
-.Broctaneyer, Charles Nagel, J. Hugo Grimm
And L. Mlnnls.
Tho hitter's address was tho most v'gor
. jpoa of the evening. He said In part:
Last Friday there was a meeting of Re-
publican lobbyists at which at leaat one
committeeman who Is a candidate for Sen
ator was In conference with Colonel "Bill"
t, Phelps, the well-known lobbyist, and a few
u others. There was some kind of u propo
' sitlon made to settle a controversy that eld
.not exist, and another proposition to brin
E about harmony In a party where the Na
tlonal Committeeman 13 the only disturber.
" (Mr. Rozler has threatened to becomo State
) chairman, but as ho has committed no overt
r act In the conspiracy he Is not liable to
i censure:. Mr. Aklns. our representative,
waa not present at the meeting, either in
" person or by proxy, and Mr. Roberts, his
representative, although present, did not
enter Into any agreement with the con
epirators." Mr. Mlnnls, speaking of the Ziegenheln ad
ministration, declared that no party could
, afford to stand by such corrupt -politics. He
I admonished the, Republicans to quit talking
about the Nesblt law and to do more to
wards revolutionizing their own party.

pointed out as ou ev.dsnc? that the occasion
of tho opening of the club means a direct
effort to harmqnlze various discordant ele
