contemplates, presumably, a park In a more or less
central location. Chain of Kocks Park probably will
be a popular resort at some future time, but It Is, as
yet, too remote, and has the drawback of inaccessi
bility.' The only other riverside park in or near St.
Louis is the reservation at Jefferson Barracks, which
is owned by the Federal Government.
The area of park property on ned by St. Louis ag
gregates 2,185 30 acres. The aiea of New York's
parks aggregates (5.S57.CO acres, of Boston's 2,020, of
Philadelphia's 4,005 90 and of Chicago's 2,lSo S2. In
area this city may not be behind, but the city prob
ably Is behind Its rivals in the number of its parka
and in the proportionate distribution of park since.
St, Louis should have at least one good downtown
park, a number of playgrounds and nt leist one cen
trally located riverside park.

Notary Public. City of St. Louis, Mo.

The precautionary measures looking to his death
adopted by .Mr. Morgan to prevent panic in 'Wall
street and incidental loss to the'holdings of 'his esta'te
reflect his unique position in the financial 'world.
The probable effect of his death has long been a
familiar topic among financiers. Now that he has
perfected his arrangements with the North American
Company the world breathes more easily.
There is something coldly ironical in the thought
that death, even from a great distance, fixes its eye
on Mr. Morgan. . Perhaps some people will find it a
consoling thought that he is mortal like the rest of us
Certainly, no one begrudges him a long life. He
has done more to entertain the world In recent times
than any other man.
That a being of his delightfully enormous posses
sions could contemplate dying at all seems out of
tune with his power and nerve.
To the first impressions of a stranger whose train
ing and experience qualify him to pass expert judg
ment on matters of public concern must be conceded
some Importance, especially when his views are im
partial and suggestive, rather than critical. Professor
c Charles Zueblln of. Chicago University, who addressed

mis ncia. Moreover, his official connection with the

and the public generally, are sure to obtain advice
which will aid In permanent Improvement and certain
progression. Their advice Is good because they come

SemiotEcial returns from certain precincts In some
of the downtown wards attest to flagrant iolationi
of the spirit and letter of the election law. There are
indications in the returns from a few precincts of col
lusion between alleged Democratic and Republican
tricksters to gain results at the iwlls in which they
probably had a mutual interest.
Careful Investigation of the returns from all of the
333 voting precincts of this city shows conclusively
that the tampering was not sufficient to detract ma
terially from the victory achieved by the Democrats.
It .would not, in fact even alter to any substantial
effect the general result In any district even in the
Twelfth Congressional District, where a class of citi
zens claiming allegiance to various political parties
engages in lawlessness in almost every election, no
matter how unimportant the Issue may be.
The Democratic victory In St Louis was a land
slide, occasioned by the excellent work of Mayor
Vell, Circuit Attorney Tolk and their assistants, and
by the personal superiority of the Democratic ticket
The large gains made by the Democratic ticket in
strictly Republican wards were so great that conten
tions of illegality can have no bearing on the results.
And, as was natural, the personnel of the Democratic
city ticket helped candidates on Congressional and
Stnte tickets in the various districts.
But the result H not the whole concern. There Is
to be considered the fact that wrong was committed
In certain precincts. And, though pemocratic candi
dates may bac seemed to gain by the apparent col
lusion between a class of alleged Democrats and Re
publicans, these candidates and the Democratic party
were as much Injured as the defeated candidates and
respectable men in the Republican party.
It may be impossible to entirely eradicate election
crimes. Every party that has vitality 1ms zealots
whose consciences are inferior to their cunning and
criminal predilection, and whose inclinations to do
right are subservient to baser inclinations. Too often
election crimen arc engendered by the false philosophy
that the "end justifies the means."
Every party has Its election criminals and the party
organ that protects the criminals in Its own ranks by
charging all corruption to the opposing party Is guilty
of hypocrisy and aids in perpetuating dishonesty and
The people of St Louis cannot afford to tolerate
crimes against the ballot in any one of the 333 pre
cincts. Elections must be absolutely fair. Every act,
though it may seem insignificant that has a dishonest
object in view, is a crime against the public. Motives
cannot be taken into account The guilty person must
be punished, for he is the enemy of the public, the de
fender and agentof corruption. He should not re
ceive-protection from any party. v
It appears to be an evident fact from the semi
official returns that i' depredations4 were 'committed,
as they seem to have been, judges and clerks of the
Democratic and Republican parties acted In harmony
in certain precincts of a few downtown wards. If
illegal practices prevailed outside the booths, the same
conclusion holds good that there was collusion in
these precincts among low followers of all parties.
Even in this case the judges and dorks must 'have
connived at the work.
An investigation shonld(be made of conditions In
precincts In which the returns have a suspicions color.
Public Interests demand that elections be conducted
as fairly as possible, ,and that no candidate and no
party should have any unjust advantage. If some "of
the "bad men" belonging, ostensibly, to different polit
ical parties were made to suffer for their misdeeds,
the lesson would be long remembered by their pa
trons, friends, followers and protectors.
The recent election was as fair as elections held In
other large cities; but It was not fair enough. We
cannot be satisfied until conditions are better in all
precincts. Though 332 precincts may live up to the
law, and one precinct display some bad features, there
Is room for Improvement
practice, because it taught the public that the law
could be evaded and that favors could be had by ap
plying to the right source.
Practical, honest men are the kind to have in pub
lic ofliee. If they w ill adhere to the letter of the law
and deny favors asked for on personal grounds, so
much the better; in that eent we can be sure that no
discrimination will be exercised and that favoritism
will not be shonn. AVe shall know that every citi
zen, no matter how humble or poor he may be, will
be accorded fair treatment.
For nearly two jears St. Louli has been blessed
with good government- The men who hold public
office are not professional politicians. Many of them
hae no desire to senc ag.iin in any public capacity.
Their one ambition Is to do their duty and serve their
city as well as they cm. St. Louis cannot get too
much of this kind of go eminent.
That good men have a place In politics is clear from
the erdlot of the voters In the recent election in elect
ing the ticket which was approved by Mayor Wells
and Circuit Attorney Folk, In order that good men
may fill all public offices, representative men of both
parties should take steps soon to insure good tickets
at the spring electlou.

Why should The Republic care whom Missouri
sends to the United States Senate, as long as the
choice of the party falls upon a man of good repute
and of party loyalty?
Then, too, the man of political ambitions Is at best
only an incident As in other walks of life, there
should be a standard of fitness in politics. The pub
lic should demand that nominees measure up to the
standard. Given that much, a newspaper need not
disturb itself as among Mr. Brown, Mr. Smith and
Mr. Jones. There are no heroes In politics nowadays.
In fact very few men have been heroes at any period
until after their deaths. Be that as It may, nobody
at this date monopolizes the capacity to represent a
constituency. Any man's place can be filled on short
There are a score of Democrats In Missouri whose
experience and abilities lit them for' the Senatorship.
The party can choose any one of them and The Re
public will be contented. If the machine organs can
not comprehend this system of party journalism, they
can proceed to hew wood and draw water for profes
sional politicians, and The Republic will be contented,
too, over their poor judgment

And jet, fair bow, no fabling dreams.
But words of the Most High,
Hive told why first thy robe of beams
Was woven In the sky.
When o'er the green undeluged earth
Heaven's covenant thou dld'st shine.
How came the world's gray fathers forth
To watch thy sacred sign!
And when Its yellow lustre smiled
O'er mountains yet untrod,
Each mother held aloft her child
To bless tho bow of God.
Methlnks, thy Jubilee to keep,
Tho first-made anthem rang
On earth delivered from the deep.
And the first poet sang.
s . As fresh In yon horizon dark.
Nor ever shall the Muse's eje
Unraptured greet thy beam;
Theme of primeval prophecy.
Be still the prophet's theme.
The earth to thee her Incense jlelds.
The lark thy welcome sings, "
When glittering In the freshened fields
The snowy mushroom springs.
How glorious Is thy girdle, cast
'O'er mountain, tower and tewn.
Or mirrored In tho ocean vast,
. A thousand fathoms downl
JAs young thy beauties seem.
As when the eagle from the ark
i First sported in thy beam:
For, faithful to Its sacred page.
Heaven still rebuilds thy span.
Nor lets the typo grow pale with age
That first spoke peace to man.
