In the City Council lias been introduced a bill
lo authorize the ootibtmction of an underground
railway in the heart of the city and an clevatnl
railway from KtghtecntU street wcstwardly to
Watson road. Judged polely as a utilitarian enter
priser a system of this kind is desirable. St. Louis
Is setting too big for surface tracks. Whether this
bill should be passed, however, is a qucnlinn.
jWIthout In any manner suggesting cither the
passage or the defeat of the measure, the Mnnicipal
Assembly may be reminded that, if the parties
who seek the franchise are reliable. It has now an
opportunity to undo the work of former legislators
by following conservative methods ia acting upon
the bill and by inserting provisions which cor
respond with universally approved Ideas as to
Should the bill be considered favorably it ought
to contain as many provisions as possible to the
advantage bt the clly and the public. In former
special ordinances protective provisions of a satis
factory kind were wanting.
Provisions should be made whereby the city
would have supervision over the service and have
authority to make and cliange schedules; the life
of the franchise should not be too long; the city
should retain the right to acquire the road under
fair conditions; the compensation should be suffi
cient; consolidation with existing and prospective
competitive roads, of all typee, should be prohibit
ed; provisions should be made for the issuance of
transfers, or, if -transfers are not Issued, for a low
fare. Other precautions might be mentioned, but
these are among the most important
During recent years It has been found that fran
chise bills may be discussed in candor and on busi
nesslike lines by the representatives of the com
pany and the city's legislators anil oflicers. This
spirit Is In the Interest of both parties, as? well as
In the Interest of the public. Every reliable ap
plication for franchise rights is entitled to full,
fair consideration; otherwise, injury will be done
by forbidding Investments. If this application is
reliable, the Assembly may. educate the people In
public affairs by demonstrating that the city gov
ernment Is -willing and competent to do business
according to sound business policy. The Assembly
may, without Impairing the interests of the peti
tioners, set an example for future legislatures. In
fact, a free and fair consideration of the project
would do much toward putting public business on a
better and surer basis, toward forming conditions
satisfactory to all Interests, and even toward en
WOMEN NEEDED IN POLITICS.
Women arc quietly but effectively working In
New York to secure the election of the Low ticket,
as against "vice and misrule" charged to Tammany
UalU Women played an Important part In New
York's last municipal contest, not by organized en
deavor but by the persistent use of their Influence
in the homes. This calls attention to the fact that
woman's voice Is felt In politics and that herein Is
one of her duties and opportunities.
Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish, when In St. Louis, said
that womanjshould take part In public affairs, that
ehe should. In a sense, enter "politics." Mrs. Fish
meant probably 'that, by the nature of "society" In
the European capitals, the brilliant woman, at her
"salons" and by virtue of her social power, does
Influence political events; and that the same should
be true In tie United States. Politics in America
Is not centralized enough to permit such a feminine
political aristocracy. The thing cannot occur In
this manner. Politics here may not be so con
veniently ttsed as a clever game to redound to the
credit and triumphs of a particular woman. But
the study of politics -by iho women of the United
States, the exerdse of their Influence from the
purely moral standpoint, Is needed and will make
The right of the. suffrage Is not necessarv: In
deed, It would lessen rather than augment her fipw-
er. As It now stands, woman's conclusion upon a
political question generally has to do with only the
moral phase of it. As a voter, she would be ex
posed to all that man confronts, and there is uo
reason to suppose that under like circumstances
she would be any better than man. At present,
whether or not it be "superstition," woman is glveu
credit by man for being the better and the finer
in her distinctions. She has an a.cendeney and
influence greater than most men care to admit and
than she can afford to urremler by stepping Into
the storm and stress from the shielded and ele
vated plane of th? ltonie.
To proerve a high standard ot citizenship In re
lation to public affairs is the aim of every "public
spirited man in St. J.otiK The work has been lto
gun. The only fear Is that the results thus far at
tained are due to spasmodic effort. Constant en
deavor, constant striving alow: can give twriua
nenco. No other factor which will contribute to
the deslied end is of more iinportauee than the
power wielded by the women of the city.
As a result of the grave agitations tbiougu
which this Commonwealth has passed and Is pass
ing the distinction is empbssiaed and made In
creasingly clear between two grades of govern
ment or administration; and as a direct and in
evitable consequence of the ttcortle's perception or
that distinction there will lie presented to the voters
of next year at least one ticket embodying their
desires, or their ideas of what should constitute
excellence In public service.
That the Democratic party will construct tjils
ticket In accordance with the people's rcvivilted
conceptions and newer puryoscs is a probability
amounting almost to acceptation. Democracy's
tendencies have lecn rapidly along the line of per
fected good government and its recent high-class
municipal and State administrations have been
foundation stones upon which Improvement may
rest. Organically Missouri Democracy possesses
strength and quality which recent experiences have
tended further to develop. Purification of the sys
tem of Democracy has Iieeu and will be further
stimulated. Democracy's moral fibers liave been
One signal fact should be kept in mind by the
people of Missouri, and that is that "reform" H
Democratic, within the Democratic party, ami with
in no other. The "reform tendency," the agita
tion, the manifestations, the movement have been
within the Democratic party. The force of reform
came from within itself. From the St. Louis wing
of the party came the movement which overthrew
municipal corruption and prosecuted the boodlcrs
of the Republican regime; and out of the party
itself came the force which upset State Doodling
and prosecuted State boodlers. Republican and
Democratic alike. Whatever political reforms or
benefits have resulted from the great moral experi
ence of Missouri are confined within the Demo
cratic" party as a party. True, the majority of the
boodlers have been so-called Republicans, but the
reform and punitive force Is Democracy's.
Assuredly the Republican party cannot claim a
share in Missouri reforms. Is the influence of re
form anywhere noticeable in the Republican sphere
of political activity? Has there been any concerted
action, or individual action save that or Mr. Nor
ton!, to indicate that Republican party leaders
were imbued with the "Missouri idea"?
It would be gratifying Indeed could the people
count upon an opposition ticket In 11)04 of such
character that Missonri in any orcnt would be
guaranteed a high-grade administration. There,
are nlmost daily assurauccsj, that the Republican
party will make perfunctorily high-class nomina
tions and In making up its ticket will be guided by
the distinction upon which the people are insistent;
and certainly It is to be hoped that these assur
ances will be performed.
But can It be fairly presumed that the Republic
an party, as it now exists, is capable of carrying
out the good promise? Indeed. Is it not a reason
able presumption that, considering the nature f
the political elements which will unite with the
opposition against the Democratic reform force, the
Republican party will be unable so to do?
The forces, drawn from ail quarters Inimical to
the present reforms, which would naturally con
centrate with the -Republican opposition, would
have a tendency to prevent the creation of a high
class ticket. Certain Republican leaders have al
ready bid for the co-operation of the bad elements
in both parties. The plan, as outlined by these
leaders and announced by their journalistic mouth
pieces, Is "anything to down reform"; and conces
sions will probably be made to inferior elements,
resulting In a lowering of the ticket's quality. It
Is too soon to prophesy with any degree of cer
tainty, but the Influences operating in the Re
publican party at the present time indicate a lower
rather than a higher trend in its affairs. At pres
ent It seems to be bidding for an alliance with all
that Is unworthy In either party.
MIssourians cannot better signify pride In the
State's name than by adopting The Republic's stig
gestion to place aboard the lwttleship Missouri
some suitable testimonial.
It Is the appropriate thing to do. and the cus
tomary thing, and we shall seem lacking In fine
sentiment and appreciation If we suffer the ship to
depart on her cruise without a token from the State
whose name she has already distinguished.
The Missouri is a magnificent vessel, worthy to
wear the name. She marks a distinct achievement
in .shipbuilding, and her unexampled speed trial has
interested the world. She has justified the Interest
and pride of MIssourians and there may come a
time when she shall carry ourtfopes, when we
shall freely grant our affections to the thing of
armor-plate and rivets.
It would be well for us to have a sort of pro
prietary Interest In the Missouri. It would be well
for us to confer some material token of apprecia
tion, some earnest of our concern for the welfare
upon the seas of the vessel which bears our name.
"ATTRACTIONS" OF THE TULPIT.
"Attractions of the Pulpit as a Career" Is a sub
ject which has been raised In the Illinois Synod of
the Presbyterian Church, In session at Springfield.
Were it not that the matter Is brought forward
within the ministry, discussion would shrink from
the theme, since undertaking the religions Instruc
tion of the people as a life work Is not usually con
sidered from a standpoint of "attraction." That
word carries with It a limitation to material rewards,
and It had been supposed that the youth who aspires
to the pulpit put that sordid phase of ambition be
But it may be that In this material age material
things are gaining a greater ascendency, and that
the young man, moved to preach, may hesitate and
weigh in the balance the trials and privations of
the minister as against the luxuries which can be
afforded when once commercial success Is attained.
The Reverend W. S. Bryan, in a report of the Com
mittee on Education to the Synod, said: "The claims
of the ministry arc less attractive, as against the at
tractions of a commercial or professional life, and
even against a life of Christian activity." Thus the
charge is directly made that there Is a marked fall
ing off of religious zeal and enthusiasm.
It is sustained by the citation of the following
facts, true In Illinois: "In IgOC, there were 1,503
candidates, this year but 779; In the twelve semina
ries In Illinois In 1902 there were only C36 students
for the ministry as against 021 in 1S90; In 1002 there
were IK graduates as against 2S7 In 1S0C; a cor
responding decline In educational contributions.
Alarming and similar expressions have been heard
from time to time from other States. The figures
as supplied by the Illinois divine seem conclusive.
It comes as rather a blowlo the layman, who, how
ever much of the world worldly has entered Into
hla own calculations, has believed that unselfishness
as a code of living still characterized a lnrge propor
tion of humanity and that this clas still was giving
Its quota to the imlpit. Whatever Intellectual at
titude may have becu individually asserted toward
church ritual aud creed, whatever the Issues be
tween the various denominations, the one almost
common ground of assent has been that the Chris
tian churches combined are the backbone of social
morals In this hemisphere. From this viewpoint
the continued vitality of the churches Is of general
concern. If commercialism Is sapping "Christian
activity," the case Is serious.
The problem, however, so far as a solution Is
concerned, must devolve upon the ministry and the
churchmen. It Is distinctly In their province. Pos
sibly the facts as represented In Illinois are exagger
ated. The general conditions should be ascertained,
the remedy studied out, and applied. Moreover,
though the minister cannot expect large pay. It must
be rememliered by his flock that down at bottom,
after all, is one cardinal principle man must live.
Senator Cockrcll has been Indorsed by two great
Missouri meetings as the State's candidate for the
Democratic national nomination next year. And
every Democratic leader promises that there shall
not be on that account any Interference with the
re-election or General Cockrcll to the Senate. This
movement Is evidence or the loyalty or the State
and (.hould Immediately arrest the attention or the
National Democracy. A man with such a united

confidence of the nation as a Presidential can

Repressing; the WlilaUera.
In ordering the young; men students to refrain from
whistling for the yong women students to coma out
and walk with them, the authorities of Northwestern
University no doubt have some valuable reformatory
purpose in mind, but their order leaves much to bo ex
plained. What do they expect the joung men of the university
to do when they have occasion to call on the young
women students in the formal discharge of social duties?
It is true that there are other methods of attracting
attention and conveying an Invitation, but they are all
more or less crude No young man wants to stand upon
the public sidewalk and call aloud for his Inamorata.
Shouting requires too much exertion and disturbs the
peace. It lias tho further disadvantage thnt it makes
necessary the use of the fair one's name, since simply
to hang about tho premises and split the night with
vain outcries is to leave all tho coeds within hearing In
doubt as to who is the object of the tender attention.

couth performance, and the discharge of firearms Is for

less than 1(0 shares apiece, this class owning in the ag
gregate JU.IE.to). Now there are 8.617 stockholders. 6,73
