UNDER LOBBY MANAGEMENT.
Until tho "agreement" which was made In the of
fices of tho Missouri Pacific Itallroad is formally re
pudiated by the Republicans the people of the State
will have the spectacle of a party making a fight os
lenslbly against the lobby and having for tho vice
chairman of Its Central Committee a. man acknowl
edged as a friend of the lobby and related to its no
torious representative in Jefferson Ciry, Colonel Wil
liam H. Phelps.
Ordinarily such a scheme would be received by
the politicians as a hoax. That a party claiming to
represent reform In any shape should countenance
the plan of fighting the lobby with the lobby seems a
paradox, even In Missouri Republican politics.
Yet the proposition was seriously proposed, seri
ously taken and seriously announced by the Repub
lican machine leaders. Republican organs gave as a
basis of "harmony," among other conditions, that
Howard Gray of Carthage would be vice chairman of
the State Committee. With him an Executive Com
mittee of flvo members would control the plans of
party campaign, three members to be chosen by the
It Is pointed out that Howard Gray is a 6hrewd
politician. Granted. Yet his selection would be a
victory for the Phelps-Kerens faction of the Repub
lican party a victory in which the so-called reform
ers would be compelled to acquiesce. It would mean
that Phelps and his lobby friends would be in abso
lute control of the Republican State Committee.
Nothing to date has indicated that this "agree
ment" will not be kept There must be a great taking
In of sails before tills "liarmony" can be repudiated
by the influential leaders of the party. The vocifer
ous welcome which was so manifest at the time
when the announcement was made mnst be recalled.
It is a question as to the ability of the parry to de
sert old friends In the lobby.
BEST SORT OP POLITICS.
Mr. Charles Nagel In a speech addressed to Re
publicans In the Twenty-fifth Ward directed atten
tion to a fact In municipal politics which has become
more and more apparent during the past few months.
In speaking of 6o-called practical politics, he said
that at the beginning of the Ziegenhein administra
tion he told some of the "gang" that their course
would In the end result in the defeat of the Repub-
lican ticket In this city. For his pains he was In
formed that he did not know the game, or words to

calling that eeries of events In the Municipal As

No city can be governed for any length of time
by men who are In politics for the "graft"
For that reason the Ziegenhein administration has
been repudiated in and out of the party. The people
are not bound by party fealty. They arc ready to
turn out any administration which does not measure
up to expectations. The voters are unerring at the
last In deciding -whether a party has kept Its cam

the truth jof ,
The-e surface Indications come in the form of
laconic utterances from well posted Republican-, iu
Washington, who generally know what is going ou
behind the ceue& In their party. Ihere Is no guo--mg
going on among these folk. They quietly and con
fidently mention Hanna's name as that of the net
Republican nominee for President. They b.ie their
opinion on the hinificaut facr that Uauna's friends
1 are organizing a campaign In his behalf, similar to
j that shrewd organization which secured the late Mr.
McKinley's nomination, and that Hanua has made
no definite declination of the nomination.
I Of course, this will mean a light between Hanna
and Mr. Iloosevelr in the Republican National Con
! mention of 1004. The President Is unmistakably a
candidate for the nomination, nrdently desiring the
supreme honor of election to the high office w hich he
now holds owing to the unhappy death of President
McKinley. AH the power of his administration will
' be exerted to secure him the nomination. Against
this administration influence will be the might of
the Republican national machine, controlled by Han
na, and the power of the trusts, as whose representa
tive Mr. Hanna entered public life. Such a fight will
be intensely interesting and significant
The chances are that in an open test of strength
between the two. Senator Hanua would win. The
masses of the Republican party probably favor Mr.
Roosevelt, but machine organization will count po
tently In the convention, and Hanna is the head of
this machine organization. No one is so foolish as
to believe that Mr. Hanna does not desire the nom
ination. Knowing, also, his distrust of Mr. Roose
velt as a man not absolutely subservient to trust dic
tation, It would be the most natural thing In the
world for Hanna to enter the lists as Roosevelt's
antagonist for the presidential prize. Existing indi
cations are that he Is already In the lists nnd formi
dably equipped for the contest
EASE AND HONOR WELL DESERVED.
With the retirement from active service of Major
Charles J. Osborn, correspondent in St Louis of the
Associated Press since 1S55, a career of exceptional
ability and loyalty to duty is appropriately rounded
out In honor and crowned with deserved ease and
Major Osborn is one of the best-known newspaper
men In the United States, and the announcement of
his withdrawal from the harness will be received with
keen interest by thousands of friends. During his
forty-seven years of continuous service with the As
sociated Press he has not only seen successive gener
ations of ambitious journalists attain fame in their
calling, but has witnessed that splendid development
of the American press and the accompanying de
velopment of the greatest newsgathering organization
in the world which are the marvels of the closing half
of the Nineteenth and the opening years of the Twen
Happily, it may be stated, the Associated Press
does not entirely lose the service of this valuable
representative. Major Osborn will remain with the
company in an advisory capacity, for which he is
eminently fitted. The veteran of American newspa
pcrdom will be congratulated on his well-earned ease
by the entire army in which he has so long served
and all will join in wishing him many years of its
ANY ASSISTANCE DESIRABLE.
There should be no question of politics in any com
mendation which may bo given to President Roose
velt for his desire to end the coal strike In Pennsyl
vania. Dispatches from the East tell of the Interest
which he is taking in effecting some sort of settlement
w hereby the miners and employes may work without
Already there are evidences that the struggle will
be prolonged until every affiliated Interest Is serious
ly affected by the nonproduction of coal. The fact
that Industries are tied up pending an adjustment of
differences between the operators and employes Is a
feature of the warfare which demands the earnest
attention of every man who can In any way help bring
order out of the present chaos.
And If, as a citizen of the United States, the Pres
ident can persuade the parties to the contest to agree
on a cessation of hostilities, he will have accomplished
what others have failed to do. His Influence may be
of sufficient strength to make a settlement possible.
He can, with the moral force of his position, be of
great service in breaking up the alleged combine be
tween the railroads and the coal companies whereby
the outpnt is limited and prices fixed. If the testi
mony which was presented to the Industrial Commis
sion and to the Investigating Committee of Congress
is worthy of credence, here is a field in which the
President may find ample opportunity for the exercise
of his talents.
That something should be done Is evident. While
the laloring men and the operators are the Immedi
ate sufferers, the public is equally concerned as an
afflicted third party. An Injection of politics will nor
help to settle the questions at issue. Business pros
perity in many sections of the country depends upon
the common sense which is applied to the solution of
CATLIN TRACT PROBLEMS.
Trom the efforts of so many trained men some
satisfactory adjustment of the Catlin tract problems
should be reached. There are two objects in which
St Louis is deeply interested. One lb the use of part
of tho tract for the AVorld's Fair the best develop
ment of the great Exposition panorama requiring
that space. The other Is a removal of the danger
that the Forest Park front may be converted into rail
Mayor Wells and the municipal Government would
be amply justified in using every power of the city
to compel a reasonable concession on the part of the
owners of the property. If these owners propose to
put a street car line on Lindell lwulevard, the city
should refuse permission to cross De Baliviere ave
nue. If they intend to profit from the World's Fair
crowds by establishing a show business alongside the
Exposition grounds, no license should be granted for
And It should be distinctly understood that every
obstacle will be thrown in the way of projects for
making railroad freight yards of the territory.
It may turn out to-day or at later conferences that
conflict Is unnecessary. Let us hope so. There Is no
occasion for vlndlctlveness or anything but amicable
co-operation. No insuperable barrier against arrange
ments beneficial to all interests seems to exist It is
possible to benefit the railroads, the Catlin tract own
ers, the holders of adjacent residence property, the
World's Fair and the permanent public interests of
the city all at the same time. If the representatives
of all these elements are broad In spirit and pene-
members of the Roolitnibeau-Lafayette party during
their islt to St. Louis was that convened 13' the un
filing of tlicinimori.il tablet placed by clti7cusof St
Louis on the front of the South Broadway dwelling
in which Eugene Field, the poet, was believed to
have been born though it is now believed that the
committee was mistaken in the location and that the
poet was born In another house.
The utter simplicity and sincerity of the Incident
must surely have amazed our French guests even
more than the fact that a city In what they had been
led to regard as "the wild and woolly West" thus
honored a natie singer. There was so complere an
absence of all attempt at display as to make the oc
casion almost unique.
In all likelihood, not one In a thousand of the local
population knew definitely at what hour the Eugene
Field memorial tablet was to be unveiled. As a re
sult, with the exception of the World's Fair officials,
the Rochambean-Lafaj ctte party, Mark Twain and
Mr. V. Mott Porter, the latter representing the sub
scribers to the tablet fund, only a little group of
laborers and residents of the humble neighborhood
were present. Had such a ceremony taken place in a
European city or In one of our Eastern cities, all the
best citizenship of the town would have been In at
tendance. Owing to this very lack of pomp and display,
however, the genuineness of the local tribute to Eu
gene Tield seems to be more In evidence. It was a
worklngman in his shirt sleeves who called for "three
cheers for Eugene Field and Mark Twain!" as the
flag fell from the Field memorial tablet This was
typically American. The distinguished French guests
of St Louis doubtless appreciated fully the signifi
cance of so unpretentious and jet so sincere a memo
With the steady progress of the Grand Jury In
vestigation of the municipal corruption scandals and
the prosecution of persons indicted in connection with
those scandals the local community has good reason
to be satisfied. The fact that the public Interest re
mains so Utal throughout the course of these inquiries
and trials is excellent proof of the strength of the
public conviction in its demand for municipal purifica
tion. Ordinarily, after the first excitement of such a
movement is over, a community becomes listless and
more or less Indifferent but this Is not true of the
local boodle investigations. The people are as alert
now as in the beginning, and are, if anything, more
determined upon relief from the evils against which
the boodle prosecutions are directed.
m Q '
rubllc sentiment In Columbia, where the case
against Ed Butler, charged with attempted bribery,
is to be tried, may safely be taken as devoid of preju
dice. This should be a cause for satisfaction to both
the prosecution and the defense as insuring a fair
hearing and a just verdict. All that is necessary Is
to submit to a Boone County jury the evidence bear
ing upon the case. No attempt to influence public
sentiment in any other manner is likely to produce
desirable results. There has been manifested thus
far a commendable determination upon fair play, and
fair play should be the rule to the end.
Eastern communities which affect to look upon the
West as wild, woolly and uncultured must have been
a bit surprised by Missouri's loving and appreciative
welcome to Mark Twain. That notable event came
mighty near equaling Boston's recent demonstration li
honor of Edward Everett Hale.
Submarine nonts for Xlarbor Defense.
Army and 2tavy Jounmal.
The inqulrj before the House Committee on Naval Af
fairs Into the suoject of submarine boats ha3 developed
some Interesting testimony, of which -vre have given
a. sjnopsis, and brought clearly to light well settled
convictions on the part of our naal officers as to the
best tpea of naal vessels One of thee Is that our
chief dependence must be on battleships, and that
nothing should be allowed to dhert us from their con
struction. The nrgument for the submarine boat, on tho
part of Its advocates. Is that It will release tho battleships
from the responsibility for the defers of our harbors and
leave them fre to follow their legitimate role of search
ing for the sh ps of the enemy on the high rcas. Belief
In the submarine boat appears from this testimony to bo
In direct relation to familiarity with it in actual practice.
Commander Walnwrlght, who has become acquainted with
the Holland boat at Annapolis, frave strong testimony In
Ita faor, while the young men who have had the manage
ment of the boat Lieutenants Spear, Caldwell and Mac
Arthur and Ensign Nelson are simply enthusiasts believ
ers in the Holland. The "youngsters" held stoutly to their
opinions, in spite of attempts on the part of members of
the committee to demoralize thsm bj a citation of the
august authority of Admirals O'Neill and MeHille.
With half a dozen Holland boat Lieutenant Caldwell
would undertake to defend New York against fifteen bat
tleships Though the speed of the submarine bont Is only
one-third that of the surface boat Its Invisibility gives It
the advantages Half a dozen Hollands would be more ef
fective in breaking a blockade then the equal number of
surface torpedo boats We ought to have at lenst fifty of
them, Lleutemnt Spear thinks, to defend our priiclpal har
bors. Th storage battery for the boat has a radius cf
about fifty miles. He had "lept several nights aboard the
Holland with the crew, finding plenty of room. Ensign
Nelson testified thero was no great discomfort and the boat
had a very slight motion to her.
Bookkeeping In Hieroglyphics.
llavors Secretary -William P. ityan was commenting
vesterday on the way In which many Illiterate persons
seem to get along In the world. "The late William J.
Carroll used to tell a good story along this line." said Mr
Itvan. "He had business connected with the collection of
rents which u-vd to take him to a certain plac on the
eastern shore at Interval". On one occasion he went Into
a store there, the proprietor of which could neither read
nor wTlte. While he was there a man came In who was
evidently a regular customer.
" "I owe sou some money, don't 17 he said to the store
keeper. "The latter went to the door and turned It around so
that the back was visible
" That's so,' he replied; you owe me for a cheese.
" A cheese" replied the customer 'no I don't."
"The storekeeper looted at the Uor again.
" 'That's so.' he said, -it's a grindstone. I didn't see the
dot In the middle.' "
