The oldest educational institution In St. Louis
celebrates to-day the, seventy-fifth anniversary of
its foundation. 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.
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.

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.

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

The world with its eye on the pV-onJe of .Missouri
Is wondering what they are going to do about

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
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.
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

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 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

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.

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. In the hands of & less skillful act
ress tho spectacle of an unreasonable
woman opposing an equally firm but tact
ful husband, would have Ucked humor.
Miss Shaw knew Just how to exaggerate
funny femininity. The result was a
piquant character study that amounted
auncst to a monologue.
