ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN.
Illinois Democrats axe acting wisely and with a
keen appreciation of promising conditions In arrang
ing for an unusually aggressive campaign that shall
brlnO flllOllr mnro miTnntrtilc rnlqflAnc. luitn-AAn ,
H local and general committees and keep the entire or
ganization In touch all along the line.
Especially is it advantageous that the officers and
V some of the members of the Executive and State Cen
tral committees are next week to begin a personal
tour' of the congressional districts with a view to
stimulating party workers to their utmost endeavor.
This cannot fail, to result in great party good. The
active efforts of Democratic leaders, exerted right
among the people rather than from party headquar
ters; means a vigorous and, In all probability, a vic
torious campaign.
A significant fact of the situation Is that the
Democratic management In Illinois will strive con
: fidently for the success of the entire State ticket
I Tills Indicates that they discern an exceptional op
portunity as matters now stand, and. that they pro
pose to improve that opportunity to the fullest. It is
,- safe to predict that next week will witness a marked
-" Increase of Democratic enthusiasm accompanying the
f iWOrlc of the party leaders throughout the Sta'te, and
. that the party spirit will be heightened to a point
f more formidable than for some years past.
.Existing dissensions In the ranks of Illinois Re-
publlcanlsm warrant the Democrats of that State in
r adopting these aggressive tactics. Illinois voters are
f. .weary of factional feuds on the spoils basis, resulting
- In a selfish scramble for factional profit that causes
the gravest neglect of the general Interest The Re-
i publican organization In Illinois was never weaker
than at the present moment Coincidently, there is a
. strong trend towards Democracy on the issues of
tariff revision and a restriction of the trust evil. IIll-
, nols Democracy has a good chance to win at the polls
t this year, and it Is gratifying to see that the party
jf leaders are fully awake to this truth.
UP TO THE STATE COMMITTEE.
i Charges which have been preferred against the
E Kerens majority In the Republican City Committee
; are of a sort which cannot be ignored. There can be
f no whitewashing by a. flimflam Investigation,
f For the sake of cleaner politics, every good citizen
j wishes success to the men who are protesting against
I tho usurpation of power by the .old Zicgenhcln ele
ment in forming a fusion with the Meriwether and
I Butler forces. The tactics used by this gang of politi
cal manipulators are of the same variety that has
made the present organization of Republicans in this
: city a byword of municipal badness.
f- 'Especially bad has been the attitude of the Re
publican committees in this city toward fair elec
tions. The charges which have been preferred against
the majority In the local organization explain why
the people have discounted criticism of tho election
laws.
A Republican State Convention nominated three
candidates for the Supremo Court who have practi
cally promised to reverse standing decisions of the
present tribunal. They have made much ado about
fair elections. Yet the scheme here in St Louis is to
put their names on the Meriwether-Kerens ticket in a
direct primary, which, according to the admissions of
lis promoters, Is to be carried by fraud.
-"What right have Republican politicians to talk of
election laws when such corruption exists In their or
ganizations? "What law ever framed could prevent
the kind of fraud now openly charged against the
ruling committee? "Where is the court which could
bring to justice men engaged In the practice of sell
Ing'out the party in advance?
Republican disloyalty created fraud In the Twelfth
store public confidence in the integrity of the local Re
publican committees. In recent years most of them
have been in favor of that whicli is opposed to politi
cal morality. Their works have condemned them in
the eyes of citizens.
Apparently, the Phelps-Kcrens-Mcrlwetlier deal
has made the festering sore of Ziegeuheinism come to
a head. It is for the State Committee to apply the
knife and secure an honest local organization. Sr.
Louis will never again be Republican while the pres
ent condition continues. If the State Committee has
the courage to punish party treachery and election
frauds, well and good; if not, the charges filed against
the majority of the City Committee will remain as
the standard of political honor by which the party
must be judged.
MEANS A FIGHT WITH UANNA.
President Roosevelt's advocacy of Government su
pervision of the trusts, which constitutes a confession
of belief that these monopoly corporations as at pres
ent managed are a menace to the general good, neces
sarily places him in opposition to Senator Hanna, the
manager of the Republican national machine.
Senator Hanna has gone on record as denying the
existence of trusts. He cannot, therefore, indorse the
Roosevelt contention that trusts exist and are so evil
in their operation as to demand curbing and regula
tion, even if the amending of the Constitution be
necessary to bring them under control.
So far as Mr. Hanna has declared himself, it is his
opinion that the great consolidated businesses now de
scribed as trusts are in reality beneficent develop
ments In the world of to-day. They are, he would ar
gue, to be encouraged and strengthened in their great
powers.
It is natural that Senator Hanna should occupy
this position with regard to the trusts just as logical,
indeed, as that he must take issue with the President
and, if possible, weaken Mr. Roosevelt within their
party for the sake of the trusts. Hanna entered pub
lic life as the champion of these great monopolistic
corporations. He has precious little Interest in public
affairs save where the trusts are concerned. The poli
cies which he has forced on the Government have
been policies of Invariable benefit to the monopolists.
He is looked to by this class, of which he Is a member-,
to maintain them in their special and unjust priv
ileges. Anyone who can believe that Senator Hanna will
exert his influence In behalf of Mr. Roosevelt as the
Republican party's next nominee for the presidency
is blindly foolish. If Mr. Roosevelt's backbone re
mains stiff on the trust issue he must count on hav
ing to fight Mark Hanna to a finish. As a matter of
course, the latter will not come out opeuly in a decla
ration of hostility. But he will "smash" the Presi
dent as the standard-bearer of the Republican party
just as surely as it Is within his power to do so.
Mark Hanna Is resolved that the Republican party
shall remain the party of the trusts.
..
PLATFORM INCONSISTENCY.
In slandering the State's educational system the
Republican tricksters who framed the Jefferson City
platform fell Into a hole of their own digging.
With much noise they gave the keynote for the or
gans and speakers who have been proclaiming that
the "School Fund is gone;" that It Is "so much worth
less paper," "a thing with a past but no present ex
istence," "a dissipated asset."
Yet they show their inconsistency by offering to
"restore" it without advancing a dollar and to then
distribute the money derived from the fund "so re
stored" among the various counties.
If the School Fund Is gone, how can any Repub
lican legerdemain restore It to existence? By what
sort of reasoning do the political manufacturers of
buncombe figure that they can make something out
of the nothing which they claim to have discovered?
Republicans over the entire State know that the
School Fund is intact, .and the Republican platform
admits tho fact It cannot be repudiated in one
plank of a platform while the next plank proposes to
"restore and distribute." The. people are satisfied
with the present form of the fund and when the time
comes will vote for the Constitutional amendment
which proposes to continue it
,
never better for continued prosperity. Government
reports toll of line crops in every section of the coun
try. Treasury expeits intimate that less money than,
ever before will be required from the East to move .
the harvests.
Here in Missouri there is nothing to spoil anticipa
tion. Farmers, merchants and employes are confident
of auother year's bountiful returns. The ground lias
yielded of its fullness and the people are ready and
willing to u'-e the increase to the best advantage.
Both in Nation and State prosperity is the keynote.
The croaker is out of place.

TO LOWER TAXATION.
Framers of tho Republican State platform took,
particular pains to emphasize their opposition to the
proposed constitutional amendment relating to the
School Fund. Thinking that the people might be
lieve one-tenth of their charges, they proceeded to
make so many that the propositions disprove each
other.
Speaking of the amendment, the Jefferson City
platform says:
It would legalize, o. continual Issue of Interest-bearing
certificate o Indebtedness and would
perpetuate on Interest-bearing debt, and with
the" growth of the assessed valuation In the State
' will create a fund In the shape of taxes trom the
people more than adequate to pay the Interest on
them.
Following are the exact words of the proposed
amendment:
Whenever the State bonded debt Is extinguished
or a sum sufficient therefor has been received.
there shall bo levied and collected In lieu of the
ten cents en the one hundred dollars valuation
nojv provided for by the statutes an annual tax
NOT TO EXCEED THREE CENTS ON" THE
ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS VALUATION to
ray the accruing interest on all the certificates
of Indebtedness, the proceeds of which tax shall
be paid Into tho State treasury and appropriated
and paid out for the epeolnc purposes herein men
tioned. Where in this amendment can be found any basis
for fearing that a fund "more than adequate to pay
the Interest" on the certificates of indebtedness will
Inevitably result from the Increased assessments?
Who Is so foolish as to believe that the increase of
material wealth in this State Is to be a menace to the
School Fund?
Instead, the amendment specifically says that the
annual tax shall not bo more than three cents. Un
doubtedly it will bo less. If Democratic Boards of
Equalization continue to raise the assessments of pub
lic franchise corporations it may be accepted as cer
tain that the rate will inevitably fall far below the
maximum of three cents. Valuations will grow faster
than the School Fund. Nothing but a decrease In taxa
tion can follow the adoption of the amendment If
the amendment Is not adopted the present tax rate of
ten cents on the hundred dollars must remain until
the school certificates are redeemed.
NO TIME FOR THE PESSIMIST.
If Russell Sage lives long enough he may be In a
position to say "I told you so." However, he will
probably have to survive the present year before re
minding his financial brethren of his pessimistic
prophecy.
Be it known that your TJncle Russell is the only
man who predicts anything but bullish times for the
next few months. Though he has been preaching
bearish sermons'for the past five years, he continues
in the same strain regardless of the confident asser
tions to the contrary which his contemporaries are
making.
His discouraging Interviews are the only specks In
Our esteemed contemporary, the Pittsburg Post,
pays admiring tribute to Missouri as so rapidly taking
the lead in the apple-growing industry, and calls at
tention to the further fact that steadily improving
transportation facilities to Eastern and Northern
markets make certain a tremendous development or
the industry In question. The existing situation and
the prospect thus pointed out are in line with develop
ments in other fields pointing to Missouri's supremacy
as the most prosperous State in the Union. These and
kindred facts will come prominently to international
attention during the World's Fair period. The re
sult must lie of the most signal benefit to Missouri
and her people.
Some Republicans will endeavor to make it appear
that the present troubles in the City Committee are
tho result of a factional fight. Probably true, but
citizens cannot fail to see that the principle of fair
elections is at stake. Greater than any possible de
fect in a law is the corruption of the ballot through
the connivance of party organizations. This is some
thing against which no law can prove effective. Until
the present system of certain so-called Republicans in
selling nominations and votes Is broken up, elections
in St. Louis will be tainted. The Republican State
Committee seems to have the power to clean its hands
of complicity.
At last. The Globe-Democrat has the nerve to re
fer to "the extremely previous Mr. Kerens." At last
it joins the Republic's anti-Kerens fight. If this party
organ had used Innguage of the same sort before the
Republican State Convention met, the present trouble
Into which tho local organization has betrayed the
party would have been avoided. Now If it will dis
miss Colonel William H. Phelps from its editorial
staff, there will be some hope for the old organ of the
Zicgenhein machine. The present rupture between it
and the pals of the former Mayor must be painful to
both sides.
The hundreds of entries in The Republic's Skinker
Road prize poem competition bear eloquent testimony
to the wholesome truth that the gentlest of the Muses
is still tenderly cherished and wooed by a humanity,
that refuses to grow old, indifferent and cynical.
RECENT COMMENT.

Entertainment, Xot Art.
New York Sun.
We don't mean to be pralsers of past time or futilcly
to deplore the dead. But, leaving the great out of con
sideration, where I? the lo.ig, apprenticeship in the grcer
room, and where that old-timo frequent brilliancy in minor
roles? It would be rather a discouraging Job to look along
Broadway for a flashing, gracious Mercutlo, for instance,
all fire and air. Truth is that tho most of tho esteemed
actors of to-day play themselves; need have and learn no
power of Impersonation and Illusion. They walk through
a representation of themseUes for thirty weeks a year
or so. We remember Mr. John Drew when he could act
and was making progress In his art Now he has got rich,
we suppose, and Is getting richer by appearing as Mr.
John Drew; and millions go to see him. Do we blame
him? Not a bit of it. Times have changed, and he is not
called upon to educate the public or himself. Most success
ful actors of to-day are bourgeois, business men. They
mildly amuse or shock business men. They 6tlr gently
young ladies in the chocolate-caramel stage, and they wear
clothes that aro a credit to their tailors. The well-dressed
audience exhibits itself to itself; watches the players with
languid interest, and then goes to some lobster palace for
supper. The stage was never so prosperous, and Its litera
ture and its actors were never so prosperous; and wo aro
getting old and it Is foolish to long for Burton and John
Brougham when we have that Industrious comic pair, the
Rogers Brothers, whoso appearance In "Hamlet" or
"Othello" Is only a matter of time.

Cameron (Mo.) Sun.
I like President Roosevelt. He is doing a patriotic work
like the Irishman who wanted the doctor to give him the
whisky "unbeknown to himself" by kicking the Republic
an party Into smithereens.
Query: If Hanna, Doliver & Co. caused it to rain In
America abundantly In lS97t 1S9S. 1839 and 100?. why In
heaven's name did they not send us a few refreshing
showers in 1CQ1? Do they propose to make It rain only In
election ycari?
It Is said that "experience Is a dear school and fools will
learn In no other." It is my Arm. conviction that if every
American citizen could be compelled to go abroad and to
return to the United Spates through the custom-house, the
Dingley high tariff law would be swept oft the statute
books, for then they would ha'e what Othello demanded
"tho ocular proof of the iniquities of the system.
I said: "Mr. Fowler, they knocked your bill out." "Oh.
yes." he replied with a broad grin, "but we will pass it at
tho short scslon next winter," and so they will. Xearly
all the Republican devilment ever done by Congress is at
the short session just after the election.
Nobody in Missouri or in the West favors the Fowler
bill but tho Republican Congress will pass it at the short
session. Tho bankers' associations of Missouri. Kansas
and Oklahoma have passed resolutions against the Fowler
bill but the Republicans Intend to pass It this winter
unless they are thrashed out of their boots at the coming
November election.

"Captain Brent" In "The CrII."
Landon Knlsht In September Pilgrim.
One prominent figure in the pages of "The Crisis" en
joys the distinction ot appearing In the novel without the
mask of an assumed name. Captain 'Llge Brent was a
real man, and a well-known steamboat captain on the
Mississippi. He was the friend of Colonel Woods, and was
widely known In old St. Louis. His steamboat, the
Louisiana, was also a reality, and it was only very re
cently that she ended her historic career, by sinking near
Cairo. Captain 'Ligo carried her, with Sherman, through
the Vlcksburg campaign, and during tho rest of tho war
the boat was used as a transport. After peace was de
clared. Captain Brent ran on the river until his death
some years ago, when the old Louisiana was sold and re
paired and her name changed, for some unknown reason,
to tho St. Louis. Soon after that she resented the in
dignity by sinking, as before mentioned. A photograph of
her, however. Is still In existence. Captain "Lige alone is
lacking on her deck.

II LIVE for tho:c who love me.
Whose hearts are kind and true;
For the heaven that smiles above me.
And awaits my spirit, too;
For all human ties that bind me.
For the task my God assigned me.
For the bright hopes left behind me,
And the good that I can do.
I live to learn their story.
Who suffered for my sake;
To emulate their glory.
And follow In their wake;
Bards, patriots, martyrs, sage?,
The noble of all ages.
Whose deeds crown history's pages.
And time's great volume make.
I live to hold communion
With all that Is divine;
To feel there is a union
"Twixt nature's heart and mine;
To profit by affliction.
Reap truth from fields of fiction.
Grow wiser from conviction.
And fulfill each grand design.
I live to hall that season
By gifted minds foretold.
When man shall live by reason.
And not alone by gold;
When man to man united.
And everj" wrong thing righted.
Tho whole world shall be lighted
As Eden was of old.
I live for those who love me.
For those who know me true;
For the heaven that smiles above me.
And awaits my spirit, too;
For the cause that lacks assistance.
For the wrongs that need resistance.
For the future In the distance.
And the good that I can do.
