Iu the smaller English cities stone block is used, but Iu Liverpool and Manchester wood is becoming popular. "Everywhere," bays Mr. Alvord, "the main result is the same. So soon as wealth and population Increase to the point where ltfxury and comfort can demand it, the economical and more durable pavements of stone and granite on heavily traveled streets give way "to pavement of shorter life and higher maintenance cost, but of im mensely greater comfort to the public in the cessa tion of noise, smoothness for traffic, and ease with which they may be kept in condition." There are many advantages which the smooth, comparatively noiseless and clean pavements have. Appearance, comfort, serviccablenoss, lack of noise, easy maintenance and cleanliness are a few. With these pavements four provisions are particularly necessary. The foundation must be good, the ma terial must be good, the construction must be well done and the pavements must be maintained in condition. principles of their party and that is by lighting for the honor or the State.

COMBATING DISEASE. - At the suggestion of the Board of Health the Board or Estimates of New York City has allotted 710,000 for an Investigation of pneumonia and its causes and for the control and prevention of pul monary diseases generally. Several months ago Chicago and St. Louis took action concerning tuber culosis. Both cities propose to establish open-air sanitariums for consumptives. And St. Louis is ar ranging general regulations for maintaining super vision over tuberculosis and preventing infection as much as possible. The announcement is made in New York, as the Board of Estimates recommends the appropriation, that one of the principal causes of pneumonia Is the lack of fresh air. Most persons confine themselves to unventilated or ill-ventilated rooms during the cold sejuson. It is also claimed that the extremes f temperature, the drafts in street cars and the lack of care are among the principal causes. It seems ro be that a more dangerous form of pneumonia has developed in the last two or three winters. Hundreds of patients died thirty-six, twenty-four and even less hours after contracting the disease, which resisted all methods of treatment. There have been more cases than formerly. It Is necessary that the public health departments should take steps for learning more about the disease and educating the public in the best practices of pro tection. The health departments of the large cities are now conducted in accordance with scientific rules and customs, and it is almost certain that their work will produce great results. Popular education Is one of the best precautions against disease, and in that respect tho progress made in late years Is en couraging. . SMOOTH, NOISELESS STREETS. The etreet reconstruction which lias been done in the past three years, aggregating about 100 miles of new pavement, has brought St. Louis forward as one of the best-paved cities in the United Stales. And the uninterrupted pursuance of the Improve ment work in (localities lying beyond the entire cen tral districr, with the World's Fair In progress, at tests the resolve to make the betterment general. But the interest In the improvements in St. Louis Is not restricted to the quantity of paving done, or even to the transformation in appearances, and the addition to the ordinary comforts of big-city life. The Judgment which the Board of Public Improve ments and the Municipal Assembly has shown in selecting materials calls the attention of engineers and munlclpalists to the actual tendency In the di rection of an Ideal standard for street work. St. Louis lias removed macadam from principal driveways and built roadways- of dure ble, smooth and virtually noiseless, u wel! is dean, pavempn!" r2 iDc iiicipa: avenue tuu uw liuuiitlilc pave !i2l. irplIt, trEftc. Trond w.-k oruj bWck h,?.r been laid, and theseare now considered to be the best materials. On the downtown streets the gran ite blocks have been relald, and a smooth surface put on this firm foundation. As Indicative of the correctness and importance of the administration's policy, reference may be made again to the report of Mr. John W. Alvord. consulting engineer of the city of Chicago. Two of Mr. Alvord' articles in the July "Municipal Journal and Engineer" furnished practical Information, which The Republic reviewed several days ago. Hi observations on street pavements In European cities and pavinvr material available In this country are of Instructive value to property owners and citizens. He finds a preference everywhere for the smootli, noiseless and clean pavements. In Paris and Lon don -wooden pavement is used on greatly traveled thoroughfares, and considerable asphalt is in serv- Otber German v. ice-,. In Berlin asphalt la common. THE MISSOURI ISSUE A TEST. In Missouri a principle has been set up; a princi ple is the issue. It Is greater than party. Ir is as broad as government. It is of more Importance than any issue ever presented to the people of Mis souri. It is impossible to magnify the importance to the people and the Slate, and other peoples ami other States, and even the nation itself; for it lies at the foundation of self-government. "Freedom" and "liberty" and "independence" are as much bound up in the issue now before us as they ever were in any Issue confronting the American people; while the enemy behind the Issue is as formidable :is any ever opposing the governing power of this country. The principle for which Mlssourians are fighting is as vital to other States, and to the nation; and to some extent the issue, growing out of the assertion of the principle, has developed elsewhere in the Union. Nowhere, however, has It assumed the ize and definiteness of the Missouri issue. Nowher" has corruption so boldly arrayed itself and marched forth so far into the open. In Missouri It openly at tempts a seizure of the people's political processes. Elsewhere it has operated more subtly and under disguises. In Missouri it is righting to the death preparing to make a "last stand"; its existence as a system Is staked on the fight which must occur in November. Elsewhere it is workiug out develop ment. In Missouri it has reached a culmination. It has reached the point where it must be seen and be hated by the people. Nowhere else have the anti corruption forces formed the attack upon the grc.it public enemy. Thus the Issue In Missouri is one for all States where the bribery and boodle forces are operating for the overthrow or undermining of pelf-governmentand the citizenship of Missouri Is fighting for the citizenship of the nation. Missouri presents a concrete, tangible phase of an- issue as broad as the United States. National attention centering hereon proves the wide application of the issue. And the two great opposing forces of the nation await the verdict which shall be rendered in Missouri in No vember. The Missouri Issue Is a test watched with apprehension everywhere by the exponents of bribe rule for special Interests; and with hope universally by the friends of the republican form of govern ment. Should the anti-Folk ticket nominated by the so-, called "Republican" politicians of Missouri by any chance prevail against the true citizenship of the State, It would be a signal 'for the rise of corruption everywhere. An anti-Folk victory in Missouri will be a victory for every "gang," "ring," "machine." "lobby" and other corrupt organizations in the United States. It would demonstrate the superior fighting strength of organized criminal-political alli ances. It would show that corruptlonlsts constitute a "third power," which can turn the party balance. It would point the way for boodle organizations, il lustrating how boodlere and bribers may use a party. Boodle in Missouri has consolidated with the so called Republican organization. Around the anti Folk standard raised by that organization have ral lied the disreputable elements of the State, thegans of municipal politics, the cliques of State politics, both "Democratic" and "Republican"' bosses, bood lers, "pie" politicians, and the general fightiiu forces of bad government they have formed behind the Republican leaderships to march solidly in sup port of the anti-Folk ticket. Their victory, under any banner whatsoever, under any captaincies what soever, would be the victory of boodle universally. It would be the triumph of boodle over the best ef forts of citizenship; the best that citizenship could do under the most favorable circumstances In a plain case. Their defeafby the citizenship of Missouri will have equally broad significance. In proportion as the defeat of the boodle regime In Missouri is made overwhelming for In any event the defeat must and will be overwhelming the patriotism of the country elsewhere will be stirred to war against the subtle form of anarchy. Crush out the "system" in this Commonwealth, show thnt It can be demolished and obliterated by the people at the polls; and other Commonwealths will dare move against It. The preposterous arrogance of the boodle ele ments in venturing Into the open of Missouri politics must have a punishment from the people which will serve as an universal warning to their ilk. Nothing less than the whole vote of citizenship can admin ister the deserved censure for the leaders who have In the Interests of "party" consented to captain the criminal hordes. The people must rout crime nud criminal politics nothing less than a rout will an swer the purpose. There must be no reluctance in the people's movement It must not falter from first to last; it must not lag, nor proceed awkwardly or uncom fortably to require the whip but with unanimity, spontaneity sjnd power.

Republican senti ment Is not with the politicians In convention nt St. Joseph. The true Republican feeling of the State Indorses the position of Clinton A.

IS ;1t!r sci fust sin,!:;is:v the Republican voter not already convinced as to the character of the clique's operations. Says he: After rareful Investigation of the con ditions surrounding the Reoubllcan party In Missouri, my friends and myself hive become satisfied that an unholy alliance has been formed between the antl-Rooce-velt forces In the party, aided by some Federal officeholders ar.d the criminal ele ment of the Democratic party, to make certain nominations at St. Joseph, and as the forces operating with me are net will ing to become entangled with "such party treachery and corruption. I have decided not to permit the use of my name before the convention for chairman of the State Committee. Partisanship is merged in the movement of Mis souri citizenship against Missouri's enemies. There Is but one way In which the honest Repub licans of the rank and file, can be true to the higher -- SIMPLICITY. Many thousands of people will be interested !n the announcement that the author of "The Simple Life" will shortly visit the United States for the first time. It K though, needless to say that he has never been here before. Among other things-, or more properly persons, he desires to see the 1'n.sideut who wrote, so it is stated, "I preach your gospel to my countrymen." Tims we are again reminded of the simplicity of the present executive. We inevitably recur, too, to the simplicity of the people. However, it is con soling to reflect that they can't be imposed on all the time. - Lincoln Steffeus aptly phrases the boodle Issue and the aim of reform: ".Make the government. municipal and State, represent, not bribers, not cor rupt politicians, nut corrupting business men, but the common interests of the State the citizens and friends, not the enemies, of the Republic." In Mis souri the issue of the present is plainly between the corrupt ami the clean, and the opposing classes fall precisely into Mr. Steffens's division. MANY DEPART FOR SEASHORE ANO MOUNTAINS FOR REST UNTIL FALL The Superintendent of Schools of St. Louis Coun ty resented what lie deemed an attempt at bribery by htrikinsj the caller on the left jaw. Judging by the motive which inspired the listic net. tho per formance might be classified among edifying object lessons. Such demonstrations might be given daily iu the classroom?. Demonstrations and exposures of gambling games and schemes might be features of the Department of Social Economy. They would be classified in the economy department; not to show how to be soeiabi.; and lose money, but to be wise and keep enough to buy vegetable!', if not meat. -- Mr. Roosevelt has issued his letter of acceptance. It reads like an ordinary politician's stump speech. And. at that, he did seem ashamed to say much about the trusts. If the letter has a virtue it is this omission of extended remarks on the trust question. Believing that the World's Fair management had offered n prize of 915,000 for iong-distanct walkers, a I5ritih subject walked from San Jose, Costa Rica, to St. Louis, (i,000 miles. He has earned a glimpse of the main picture. The Republican pie machine is in its element. A State campaign based on an agreement with the Butler element in St. Louis and the friends of bood lers in the counties is calculated to arouse the en thusiasm of the pie brigade. ..

Mr. Folk's success makes the professional politicians look silly. He !olates every one of their maxims of political wisdom jvt triumphs !n a way their wildest dreams never pictured as possible. It Is Emerson's man of "native force" rising superior to old and mouldy con ventionalities. Courage, directness, frankness, simple devotion to public duty these are again shown by Mr. Folk to be the qualities which sway the world. Even In the moment of his acclaim by the State Convention, he rpurneJ the ordinary political humbug of such occa sions. He had no wishy-washy words about letting by gones be by-goncs, and no enemies to punish, and all turning In to win a great lctory for the party. Leaderships Compared. Boston Herald. Beside the record of this young David, daring with the sling and pebbles of the law to attack alone the great Goliath of organized and boastful Philistinism, how faded, worthless, dishonorable appear the laurels of a boss like Quay or I'latt, or Addlcks or Hanna, who debauch the public conscience by lavish use of money and by dextrous practice of all the arts of imposition and Intrigue, making it appear that politics is a game of selfishness, to be played for spoils, without too scrupu lous regard for righteousness or law. We know not what of weakness or failure this young man's future career may declop, but should he die to-day, he would leave to the citizens of his State and country a high. Imperish able example of good works, valiantly accomplished by sheer force of character, inspired by Just Ideals of pa triotic duty. The Folk Method. New London (Conn.) Day. Circuit Attorney Folk has gained a national reputa tion for his work in breaking up the corrupt ring of pol iticians which has held St. Louis by the throat for many years. The disclosures he forced In court have sent prominent officials to prison, caused others to become fugitives from justice, and opened a way to the refor mation of several men who havn confessed their sins and made possible the clearing of the municipal atmos phere. Mr. Folk was unknown until he took up his self Imposed task, and what he has done speaks volumes for his ability nnd his honesty. He Is of tho truest type of American, unswerving In doing those things which he considers his duty, self-sacrificing, consistent and con scientious. Tho methods he has employed were ever along the lines of Justice to all nnd favor to none, and his work for St. Louis and his State merits the nomina tion for the highest office In the commonwealth. With the beginning of the fall season so near at hand, those society people who remained in town later than they did in previous years so that they might enter tain early World's F.t'ir visitors are seek ing rcsplto from the social whirl and are hastening to the summer resorts at the seashore, at the lakes and In the moun tains.
