It is appropriately designated an a "Diamond Jubilee." and the St. Louis University can congratulate itself upon the splendid record it ha made in the three quarters of a century that have elapsed, since it firet opened Its doors to the youth of St. Louis. Between 1S29 and JfKH the learned and devout fathers of the Society of Jesus who have conducted this really prcat- establishment of learning have had many thousands of pupils in their charge. They have come not alone from St. Lonls. but from every State of the Mississippi Valley, from the far Terri tories of the Rrcat Southwest and many even from the neighboring Republic of Mexico. So from an exceptionally wide field congratulations are pouring In from the old students who have heard with loving pride that the Alma Mater Is greater to-day in its venerable age than in any other of its seventy five years. The whole people of St. Louis Join in the con gratulations this anispicious event evokes. The St. Louis University has been no insijnsiiicant factor in the life and development of the city and its people gratefully acknowledge the service it has rendered. ALASKA AXD NEBRASKA DAY. The diversity of life, territory, resources and gen eral advancement In different parts of .tht;f IJjjited States is visible with rare distinctness in the Alaska and Nebraska celebrations at the St. Louis Expo sition, coming after the Connecticut. California. Michigan. Iowa and Texas events. Each State has ib? characteristic". Each is an essential one in the federation. To every American the varieties of his country are known, at least In a broad way., Though he never may have pacd beyond the limits of his own city or the boundaries of his own State be bas a more or less truthful impression of each section of the country. Every citizen has acquired through the instinct of patriotism or by reading and study pome reliable knowledge of his country's Common wealths. But prior to the"Yor!d's I'air the State character istics and the common tie among all State and Ter ritories was not so well shown and exemplified. In this respect the State celebrations are as instructive gnd inspiring as the State exhibit and buildings. Last week the Colonial celebration of Connecticut was held in that State's attractive Colonial build ing, and recollection traveled back to the Revolu tionary War and Independence. To-day the Ne braska celebration directs attention to another part of the country and carries the mind of the I.onisi ana Purchase to the later pioneer days, while the Alaska celebration creates a picture of that distant, rich land and recalls the acquisition of Alaska, from Russia ly purchase. The Alaska and Nebraska celebrations, to-day onght to turn -visitors with more interest to the exhibits made by this Territory and State. The displays are typical. The Alaska building's attrac tion is heightened by the attached Indian houses and the gigantic totem poles -which stand in front. Here is an impression of the Territory. As Is expected, the exhibits include gold, minerals and fnrs; but, as may not be expected, they Include agricultural, horticultural, transportation, educational and art features, all of which combine to produce a new idea as to Alaska and Its development .Nebraska has no special building, but it lias an enthusing display, portraying the Stale's principal resources and activities. YYhile the display extends Into all of the Exposition palaces, the best exhibits arc fn the Palaces of Agriculture and Mines, and these two exhibits onght to be seen by cVery visitor. The beet-sugar, factory in the- Palace of .Agriculture .MISSOURI IN THE WORLD'S EYE. The world with its eye on the pV-onJe of .Missouri Is wondering what they are going to do about th!.- lioodle issue. Will Missouri'; disposition of the question next mouth fully satisfy the expectations of the world of the New Yorkers who have fol lowed our course, of the Californians who liave read about us and our reforms, of the Chicagoau. the Rostonian. the man from Florida, the Arizonisn, the fellows in the London clubs, the Americans in Paris, the people in Sydney, Australia, in Manila and in Honolulu, the alert p:i-eiigers on shipboard who scan the Mareouigrams. the traveler in the smoking car who looks over the paper will all these people who keep track of the world's news be satisfied on the morning after election with what shall have been done In this State? The world will eagerly await the returns from the State which is testing the boodle Issue. It will ran Its eye down the columns and skip other mat ters to see how the Folk movement has fared. Mis souri's news will be the most Important of that day. both in point of fact and in point of Interest. It has been over two years since the universal public began, to notice big headlines about boodle exposures in St. Louis. Months before that the public had been habituated to look for St. Louis Items telling of the vast Exposition project. But boodling news possessed a tricking, fastening quality of human interest. It dealt with a big question in daily affairs: a question of business and government and politics: and there was a hero- in the story, too a lighter. Mankind loves To Svatcli a fight and especially one against odds. In Missouri the story of Dnvid anJ Coliath was apparently being en acted ove." agcin. What human being's ears can resist th-f kitd of tale? The transactions in our Four Coii.m iltevr a universal fire of attention. Missouri did not disappoint the public, alert for sensation. Day by day developments fed the interest-appetite. St. Louu? became the world's prin cipal source of news. Paris papers, Berlin papers. London. Rome, St. Petersburg and even Boston pa pers daily spread the record of Folk's fight with corruption across their front pages. Thonsands upon thonsands of Easterners who were not conscious of any country we.-t of the AHeghanies became con vinced that at least St. I.ouK Mo., stood out there: and countless multitudes of foreigners sud denly acquired the idea that St. Louis was the uiot important metropolis. If not in the world. a,t any rate in this country. loiter these foreigners who previously hadn't known that Washington. D. C, was the capital of the United Statps learned that Jefferson City was the capital of MIssonri. The cosmopolite moral thought speculated on the power of right. We were gossiped about. "Missouri" was pronounced in as many different dialects as there are translatiocK of the St, James version. And the universe became educated to the prin ciple involved in the tight. It was not the mere news feature, the 'sensation. which-Mield their in terest. People's sympathies wpre enlisted for the effort to cast out a deep-rooted malady: and in many cnos the sympathies grew out of like sufferings. Missouri was trying a cure, undergoing an opera tion, demonstrating a method. Missouri's success or failure meant success or failure for other com munities. And the proposition caught and fixed a deeper intellectual interest. Students of govern ment came to regard Missouri's test as a crux which would liave its effect upon political history as an indication bearing vitally on the question. How will the people govern themselves? Shall the sub tle, powerful anarchy of corruption overthrow pop ular rule? Shall the iower of purchase supercede the power of the people? The significance of your vote next month is vaster than that of any vote you ever cast or probably ever will cast. A national and even international concern attends it; to some extent a nation's and a hemisphere's morals hang upon it. Misourinns should behave superbly in the crisis. They should realize the deep meaning of their con duct, and act with the consciousness that they are in the world's eye. Of course, the exalted principle of official and governmental integrity will be eus Liiued at the polls bnt in what manner, to what extent? Will the ieopIe vindicate the right by a mere "normal majority" or will they exhibit a triumph of intelligent citizenship which shall fully satisfy the world's hopes and expectations? The triumph has been advertised will it come as billed? It is of immerse and immediate importance to the citizens of St. Louis and the people of the State generally to carry the day with a hurrah that shall resound around the globe. Let us make the most of our opportunities on November S. Let us move the State up a. peg in universal esteem. Tlie effect of our action will lie profound at this time with the big Interrogation, the result of two or three y?ars of constant publicity and exploita tion, suspended in the great public mind. What ever we may do in the future may not concern the world so much. From die standpoint of "public spirit." of Missouri patriotism, of citizenship, it be hooves us to shoot our bolt now! From the standpont of business it is the oppor tunity of Missouri's lifetime. Consider the effect which the news from this Commonwealth niwt have upon State credit, values, commerce, industry, nonest administration of law means much. How will the news of the election affect the man who has money invested In Missonri? How will It influence the man wiio Is contemplat ing an Investment here: the man who is thinking of building a factory here; the man who is think ing of doing his buying here: the man who is de liberating upon moving-bis family here: who is con sidering Missouri from the standpoint of bis own self-interest? Go to the polls on November's and add to ths volume of the voice which will proclaim to ail men that this Commonwealth which generations of honest men have built In safely and solidly bedrocked on the right and that our affairs are In good hands. There are seven hundred thousand rotes in 3Iis souri. The welfare of Missonri needs them alL The honor of Missouri demands them ail. The glory of Missonri deserves them all. THOSE EASTERN MAGAZINES. Mr. Walbridgc demurs to the exposure and prose cution of boodling. for the reason, as he says, that the consequent advertisement is a bad thing for Missouri. The Eastern magazines, he regrets, have a way of exploiting Missouri that is disadvantage ous. The truth Is that the only Injury ever directed against this community by an. Eastern magazine con sisted in an allegation that Missourians were "shame less." There' were too many people, -McCJure's con- f tended, who were tolerant of boodling. Every MUs-f-ourhin who read that article resented .it. Jlr. Steffens would doubtless class s "shame less" a member of the House of Delegates, Pres-ident of the City Council, Mayor of St. Louis and candi date for Governor who did not and doe not favor aggressive measures against boodlers. He would also clahS as "shameless" a candidate who received and encouraged the support of the boodlers. Had Mr. Steffens confined his criticisms to some politicians and candidates and let citizenship alone he would have incurred no resentment by his article on "jhauiele)iieM." The people are not "shauieles." They favor the most rigid antagonism to boodling and the boodle system. They pride themselves upon the fact that the State has eliminated l)oodliiig. They regard the exploitation of that fact as the most desirable pul- licity. believing ibat It Is good for Missouri to be known as a State which will not abide corruption. Incidentally, the people will not abide the thought of a Governor who would not war against the lioodiers. but who by his demurrer to "injurious advertisement" virtually declares amity to them and bids for their votes. . Mr. Folk's personality and the principle for which he stands are not tho "only unique features of the Missonri campaign. Quite as unusnal is the fact that a year ago every prominent Republican daily paper in the State was warmly supporting Folk, while this fall every one of them is bitterly fighting him. And the only difference In Folk is that he has accepted a Democratic romlnation. Tills spectacle of newspaper Insincerity is a new proof of the aban doned pie-partisanship of the Republican organs. . New York is fortunate In not having a newspaper like the St. Louis Globe, which at one time declares the registration to be padded, at another time de clares that citizens have not registered, at another times advises by insinuation against registration and at another time advises registration. New York has newspapers of many sorts and there has been a battle over election methods, but none have gone back on themselvesi more thaa once. $ . Though St. Louis may not have an Independent House of Delegates, it will have to get rid of ob structionists and tricksters. The majority In the present House is returning to the old level and In so doing Illustrates the necessity of electing Dele gates who always can be relied upon to vote as the people wish them to vote and behave as they should behave. MRS. J, L. D. MORRISON RECEIVES; TEA PARTY GIVEN BY MRS. REID -- Mr. Walbridge's campaign manager praises the work of the Circuit Attorney's office. Too bad that he can't truthfully say something good about Mr. Walbridge's official work?. Mr. Walbridge has filled several offices but it really takes the Globe to tell what Mr. Walbridge didn't do In the days when cor ruption was "an open secret." The attendance, at the World's Fair now exceeds 000,000 a week, thus promising a total of 20,000.000. But. as there still are seven weeks of the Exposition, it should be possible, with special events, to go beyond this limit The African pygmies have lost their individuality in donning khaki uniforms. However, we may teach them militarism. RECENT COMMENT. The Jinn Who Client. Ills Work. Saturday Evening Post. An employer of 'thousand" of men was asked what thing In all his large operations gave him the most con cern: "The man who does a little less than Is expected of him." was the reply. "Ha Is the dangerous factor In all business. The absolute failure we readily discover and discharge, but the "almosts" escape detection for month and often for years, and they make our losses as well as our fears," and with a very sirlous smile he added, "The drip in business Is worse than the leak." It Is a condition tbat is sis old as human experience. Eighteen and a half centuries ago Seneca put it in these words: "Some portion of our tim is taken from us by force: another portion Is stolen from us; and another slips away. But the most dlgraceful loss is that which arises from our own negligence; and If thou wilt seri ously observe, thou shalt perceive that a great part of life flits from 'those who do evil, a greater from those who do nothing, and the whole from those who do not accomplish tho business which they think they are do ing." Thousands of men fancy they are fulfilling their duty to their employers and to their tasks by keeping hours and perfoiming Just enough to. hold on to their positions. They have an idea that to do more would be to give larger service than their -compensation required. They object to what they bcllex-e would be extra value. "The old man shan't get more than he's, paying for," Is the vernacular. Possibly it ne-er strikes these trimmers tbat In cheat ing their work they are doing double damage: they are injuring their employers much, but they are robbing themselves more; they are. in fact, losing everything In life that is worth while. They fare worse than If they did nothing at all. for time with all its precious, values slip entirely from them and leaves no substance or satisfaction. Half doing soon brings undoing. It Is the nine-tenths doing or the ninety-nine one-hundredths doing that bleeds business and saps character. The Halite Squadron. London Xews. It Is evident that we have here a formidable array of vessels, and if It were not that we have come to doubt the ability of the Russians to realize the proper use of such a squadron, we might expect it, la spite of the difficulties which are apparent, at least to create a diversion by Its arrival in the far East. But it seems almost hopeless to expect the Russians to utilize their naval strength as ther might. Had even half this fleet been sent to the far East as soon as it could hae been got together, affairs might have had a very differ ent complexion when Admiral Vitoft made his famous sortie from Port Arthur. Unfortunately for themselves, the Russtui5 failed to realize this, and if it be true that they have at last decided to dispatch the squadron, under Admiral Rozhdcslvcnsky to the scene of action, they would appear to have learnt nothing by experi ence. Starting In October, and making its way leisurely, the squadron would arrive early In January, when Vlad ivostok l certain to be frozen up. and Port Arthur quite as certainly in the hands of the Japanese. It would therefore" appear a wiser plan to take the squadron for a cruise, perfecting it is a war machine by training and exercise. Tho Admiral, by all accounts; is just the man to do this: and as he has been relieved of his difficulties In regard to coaling by the benevolent atti tude of the French and Germans, the necessity for haste is not immediately obvious.

NEW BILL AT COLUMBIA-"BEN-HUR'S" THIRD WEEK. Mary Shaw, who once upon a. time fared forth in Ibsen's plays, has returned to comedy. At the Columbia. last night she delighted her audience for some thirty minutes In a cleverly conceived little sketch, called "The Silent Systjm." She assumed the part of a shrewish wife, with Just a trace of klndlines to make you like her.
