To the Major: We take the liberty of call ing your personal attention to tho jnoprlety of a testimonial from the people of the State to the battle ship Missouri. It has seemed to us that the repu tation of the State for llbenlity and public -pir't required a girt at least as valuablt and decorative as thoso pirsi nl--d tij other States lo the ships beaiing their names. Tlie Artists' Guild of St. Ixmis has nirangod to place a bell on the Missouri. 'I hough this is graceful and commendable, the State should go further. While the form of gift will be tie'-ratified later it seems that its character should be hi keeping whh tlio position of MIs souil among patriotic American Coimmnwealths. In order that the tcstlmor.ini may hao that character, and ai?o bo the offering of all the people, wo esk that ou invite and receive con tribiitions.ir jour city. If you can secure, in donations of rrom 50 cents to Jl. the sum of ?23 to $C. it will 1 e grate fully received and duly aeknow lodged In the public prints. Respectfully your-. (signed) ROLIV Wi:LLS. '1. B. Ballaid. .Mayor. Chairman. a As most of the contributions to the Battlc-hip Testimonial mnd have been from St. Louis, 300 copies of the above let ter will be sent to-day to the Mayors of the various towns, both those that have reported progress in raising a fund In their towns and those who have not yet had the matter called to their attention" in an official manner.. Since Governor Doekery sanctioned the efforts of the St. Luls committee to rnlHe the fund throughout the State there have been many subscriptions sent to The Re public. Some of them were raised through tho efforts of the Mayors of the towns, in one instance the acting Lieutenant Gov ernor of Missouri went among the people of his own town Senator Rubev lives In r ..10.... , . .-..ii lata aim raiseu 111 one Hour mole than the others, taken all together, have et reported to either The Republic or the treasurer of the General Committee H has been pointed out that If one dis tinguished citizen of a town of only 1,300 Inhabitants (the populaUon of LaPlata) can raise such a subscription by an appeal to the patriotism of his townsmen, other towns of ninny times the size of LaPlnta should be better icpres-ented In the fund than by one or two subscriptions made by the leading citizen". ST. IaMCIS CH'B ACTION. Action will be taken by the St. Louis Club after a meeting of Its directors, to he held tills week. As a considerable fund has been raied through individual Miscriptinn. of the members of the Mer cantile Club, and as other organizations are working to make a representative ad dition to tlie testimonial. It Is thought that the largest subscriptions to the fund out side the business organizations will be made by tho clubs. Professor John C Van Oriiuni. member 01 me .Mayors Committee. Is getting sub scriptions fiom the civil and mechanical engineers throughout the State. A com mittee., composed of members of thu Ln gineers' Club of St. Louis, has been ap pointed by Professor Van Ornum, and is at woik. Partial reports have been made hy sev eial of the committees, and all are striv ing to have as many names on their litts hy December 1 as possible. A prominent member of the committee uppolnted by the Major said jesterday: "There Is Utile doubt that the fund will lie as large as that raised by any other State for a similar piirKisP. The patriot ism 01 citizens or Missouil would he called In eiucstlon if they failed in this duty which citizens of other States have performed so well. "While I have no preference in the mat ter of the form of the testimonial, it should be at least as handsome and costlj as the gift of any other State. I think the citizens as a wholo appreciate the honor that has heii done their State, and I have no doubt hut that they will respond In a lilting manner." No final decision as to the stjle- ejf gift will be reached until tlie fund Is all in the hands of tlie treasurer. A meeting of the General Committee wilt be allied for December 1. when discussion of tin., slj le of gift .will bo Ihe piinclpai business. FIRST SNOW OF THE SEASON.
