-In more than one sense boodle will continue to
be the issue in Missouri, notwithstanding the fight
which is sure td be -won next Tuesday by the elec
tion of Folk and dean tickets, State and municipal.
In a practical sense boodle will be the issue with
fy honest man-put Into office, whether legislative,
administrative or judicial. "Aggressive honesty" re
quired, of every man under the new regime in this
State means official, vigilance. To strike promptly
at, corruption wherever It should raise its head in
the ma tiny, In the construction or in the enforce
ment, of, law win be demanded of every public
errant To this extent it will be the Issue In
the Governor's chair and In the several administra
tive' offices; in the Legislature, in the courts, high
and low; in the Circuit Attorney's and the Prosecut
ing Attorneys' office the Influence of aggressive
honesty must be potently present In every branch
of th governmental agency; to be exercised If need
be. The high standard of official demeanor will be
Mt.tr. the people and must be rigidly followed by
the people's servants. Every .man who goes Into
the people's service must, have that standard before
hita as a fixed guide of action. Public opinion will
exact of Urn the fullest compliance.
Boodle will be the issue, in this sense, because
the public at large wU carefully watch the prac
tical application of the principle in Missouri's affairs.
Will the elected men carry out in service what the
people have so stridently declared in politics? How
win. this, new reform work out In Missouri? These
question wUl have unceasing Interest and Immense
Importance for. the whole nation. Missouri wil have
to answer for the world whether it Is worth while
to engage in the strenuous business of reforms. In
brief, Missouri must demonstrate its proposition to
the greater public.
Much depends upon the kind of government we
re to have In this State we cannot afford to have
any bt the, best The penalty for failure will be
mlversal , reproach.. We must ."make good" and
through our public servants; which is an extra argu
aient Infavor of minute care In the selection of
then. The public should attend with greater care
thsia ever In the history of the State to the small
etaik of voting. A single mistake, through public
Sadlfirerence or "neglect, may bring sufficiently grave
consequences to destroy the whole of the distinction
jichleved for the State through its brave course In
the past two years.
Residents of large cities recall the assertion of
lUchard Oroker that "reform never succeeds Itself."
By this he Implied that professional politicians al
ways us confident of fooling the voters and getting
anew lease on the public treasury in the lethargy
Whlchfollows a. reform victory. And this assertion,
Which- undoubtedly Is based upon experience. Im
presses on dticena the force' of that other assertion,
ttade -by sincere officials, that the hardest fight for
good government has to be made in the principal
elections which come immediately after the change,
j, ..The two assertions are applicable to existing cuv
eumstances in St Louis. There are two forces In
- the field. One force is calculating on the Oroker
assertion. 'The either force is led by nominees who
ire credited with realizing betterment One' force
H under the influence, of the old gang. The other
- force is inspired by a respect for principle 'and by
t4" tan rearnest desire for the extension and preserva-
K&Vtlon of reform. .One force is the disreputable old
iSl'jBang, .even to the nominees; while the other force
.'-sjg the rood-government organization, also even to
L'.'5:Thi this is exactly the situation In St Louis is
K-liltaJiown'bT, a, mere dance at the tickets and at the
LMj'ssaoBort of the tickets. One ticket has eangste'rs
;"S1VnTiIngfor office and is openly espoused by the
gang.. -The other ticket has tried and trusted" men
as nominees and receives the vigorous assistance of
other tried and trusted nominees.
Just to see how distinct civic duty Is, let citizens
compare the tickets and the records, personal and
ofllclal, of the nominees. Who Is the Democratic
nominee for the governorship? Who the Repub
lican? What has the Democratic nominee done?
What has the Republican nominee done? Who is
supporting the Democratic nominee? Who is sup
porting the Republican nominee? Isn't the gang
back of the Republican nominee? How about the
other nominees? Isn't the gang personally repre
sented on the Republican ticketsl
The illustration shows what Croker meant in say
ing that "reform never succeeds Itself" and what
sincere officials meant by asserting that a cam
paign like this one Is hotly contested. Oroker meant
that the professional politicians are safe If they
can Induce the public to overlook duty and restore
public funds and great influence to the gang.. The
officials meant that retrogression stops reform and
progress unless the citizens ratify good government
at succeeding elections.
MAKE IT 300,000.
One hundred thousand majority for Folk would fit
ly express Missouri's approval of the proposition that
public affairs must be wholly freed from the taint
of boodle, and would give an impetus to the Idea
which will carry It far and forcibly into other Com
monwealths. Two hundred thousand would be bet
terthree hundred thousand better still; but one
hundred thousand would tell the story convincingly
to the country.
There are about 700,000 voters in Missouri. At
the last presidential election 351,922 ballots were
cast by Democrats and 314,092 by Republicans.
Four hundred thousand should be cast for Folk next
Tuesday and that may be the figure. Fifty thousand
Republican votes for Folk is, not an unreasonable
The orators of the unholy alliance, denouncing
theprosecutor and political antagonist of the boodle
system before Republican audiences, have had no
effect beyond turning many men's minds toward
Folk and determining many others in the resolve
not to vote against him: whereas these same orators
have proved the very best campaigners for Folk in
their Influence on Democrats, rousing them to come
to the polls in full force. To these blatant ex
ponents of a flagrant opposition to the right must be
partly attributed the fact that Democracy will vote
in great force and numbers. As the campaign
nears its close their efforts have redoubled and the
boodle newspapers, with the exception of a few
of the shrewder ones which have ceased altogether,
have increased their odious antagonism. Not a few
Republicans will tell you they have been driven to
support Folk by the very demeanor of the Re
publican newspapers.
The Republican rank and file, holding the highest
respect for such men as former Campaign Manager
Clinton Welch, J. H. Wood, Tom Mayo and other
eminently respectable citizens prominently identi
fied with the party in the past, have heard these
men-denounced and reviled by the pie grabbers and
political shysters now In control of the organization.
The rank and file have heard the "leaders" boast
of boodle contributions to the campaign fund and
advertise with pride the support of Ed Butler.
They have heard of how the "Colonel" would knife
the St Louis Democracy. They have known with-
.out looking at the newspapers that something was
wrong with the Republican party this year. The
Republican organization bears the marks and the
manner of a boodle alliance. The better informed
of the rank and file, familiar with the series of de
velopments beginning with, the securing of Wal
bridge's nomination at the hands Kf.the old City
Committee in St Louis, having heard the statements
of Welch, Russell, Nortonl and others at St Joseph,
and perceiving how the fight went In St Louis In the
boodle trenches, know full well the condition and
character of their Bo-called, party. All things con
sidered, 50,000 Republican votes are by no means
too many to expect for Folk.
A majority of 100,000 for Folk wonld be signifi
cant to the country. It would convey the important
announcement that bipartisan support may be ex
pected everywhere for the principle of aggressive
purification of public affairs. It would carry a vast
encouragement to universal citizenship and n pro
found .warning to corrupt politicians. One hundred
thousand should bo given, and the responsibility to
give it rests upon Republican citizens. Democracy's
votes are already as good as counted.
If the Republican citizen would stand up for
Missouri at this critical time he must stand by the
principle with which the State's character and honor
are bound up inseverably. The Republican citizen
must not permit small considerations, raised for his
confusion, to obscure his view of the main issue, but
must look clearly, think clearly and vote as con
science leads, him. His. vote is vital; of the greatest
moment to the community arid, consequently, of the
highest Importance to himself.
: .
By comparing the State or city government with
their own business, or benefit-society matters, citi
zens wlll.-find It much easier to understand the is
sue in this campaign. Principles are identical in
both directions, and they-submit to a common-sense
As an -illustration, let it be 'assumed that an elec
tion is to take place in a society. The members ore
deeply interested In the result Until, recently the
society had been managed by a clique, composed of,
officers and directors. This clique had been de
feated at the last preceding election, owing to the
fear of the, members that it would wreck the so
ciety. Careful, honest management- had been made,
a direct Issue, and the members, in order to protect
themselves, had elected officers and directors in
whose Integrity and ability they had complete con
fidence. These, new officers and directors -had ex
posed the discrepancies and trickery of their prede
cessors and also bad put the society's affairs in
the best condition. Now there is another election.
The former clique Is trying to get control again,
but the trustworthy officers and directors are calling-
upon the members to avoid any such risk.
Or, let it be assumed that the managers of a cor
poration had run the concern for their own benefit
and had manifested a disregard for the interests of
the stockholders.- The stockholders had elected
other managers from their own membership, and
the new managers had restored the concern's af
fairs to a safe basis. Meanwhile, however the for
mer managers had laid plans to be re-elected, be
lieving that some of ,the stockholders ihight beln
dlfferent The. two. parties the old managers and
the new managers present the question to the
stockholders at a pending election, and the stock
holders have to decide, by the election, upon the con
cern's future.
The public corporation Is both a business con
cern and a-society. Its officials are the managers,
its- legislators are' the directors. The citizens' are
the stockholders in the corporation; the members of
this society. The officials: and legislators are elected
by the citizens, and, therefore, '.whether the affairs
are to be well 'managed or mismanaged depends
upon the citizens. The 'managers and the directors
merely act for the -stockholders or the members, as
they do in a private business institution or In a so
ciety. The issue in Ihte election is exactly like those as
sumed In the cases of a business institution and a
society. The citizens had been disgraced by the
former officers and legislators; their Interests had
been neglected, to the advantage of the sworn rep
resentativea; mismanagement had jeopardized the
public corporation. In order to save the public" cor
poration; new managers and directors had been
elected. The new management has reformed the
system. And now the citizens see the previous fight
renewed, the repudiated management being, desirous
to be re-elected.
Apply the illustration to St Louis. The Repub
lican tickets represent the former management
which was ousted. The Democratic tickets repre
sent Integrity, efficiency and loyalty. The citizens,
as stockholders In the, public corporation and as
members of the society, are asked to choose be
tween what evil there was and what good thero
is; they are asked by the gang for a new lease on
power and spoils; they are asked by the faithful
managers and directors to approve of good govern
ment and to preserve reform by wiping out the
gang. There is no other way of looking at tills sit
uation. Citizens who are sincere about their duty
as stockholders In the public corporation, as mem
bers of the public society, cannot remain In doubt
as to how they should vote.
Sager, as reported In the Republican papers, says
In his speeches that he does not want "to follow in
Folk's foofsteps." He also says that the election
law and not boodle Is the issue. Having been a
faithful Democrat until lately It was supposed that
Sager was a fair sort of youth. But his own words
seem to make him about the worst spot on tho spot
ted ticket.
There are several versions of the shooting of the
Hull fishing fleet and each is authenticated. If a
board of arbitration can form a trnthfni digest from
the varying testimony, it should be possible to make
peace universal and perpetual.

As the midnight hour approaches, our hobo com
mences to bethink himself of sleeping quarters, if he
contemplates a longer stay. If it be summer, a "knowledge-box"
(schoolhouse), church porch, outhouses, box
cars, or even a sheltering tree by the roadside In the
suTJorbs suffices., But when winter clutches the land In
Its Icy embrace, these resorts are not quito comfortable
enough. Our friend isn't fastidious, however, so he takes
a moiety of his beer money, and secures quarters, for
the night In a ten-cent lodging-house. Imagine the
Bppne: A low-roofed, whitewashed room about 16 hv 12
.feet in dimensions, containing eight cots with occupants!.
The doors and windows closed tightly to keep out tho
cold, and, incidentally,- totally obstructing ventilation.
All the-llght-to undress by Is what comeB-from a glitter
ing candle about an Inch long,, which must be blown out
Immediately upon undressing, by order of the proprietor.
The beds (?) have for accessories rough canvas over an
armful of straw for mattresses, and sacking for covers.
But even the discomfort of these rough surfaces might
be endured were it not that these downy luxuries are
Infested with myriads of vermin. For that reason a hobo
not yet on friendly terms with these obnoxious animals
seldom dots more than loosen his clothing, and take oft
his shoes. Imagine the healthful, delightful conditions
which the purchaser of a ten-cent bed' gets for his
money. On one side a husky fat grafter with heavy la
bored snore. On the other a ferret-nosed thief , clutching
nervously at the bedclothes as the vermin pay him extra
attention. Five other beds with scratching occupants.
The air is rank, polluted, stifling, poisonous. But what
would you have? The hobo can't sleep outdoors in win
ter. The vermin, he and his kind, almost the sob pa
trons of these places, breed and bring themselves. The
lodging-house keeper cannot give you an iron bedstead
with brass mountings, a felt mattress, and springs' and
clean linen for ten cents per night.

WHEN you are old-and gray and full of
And nodding by tho fire, take down this .
book, 4
And slowly read, and dream of the soft
Your eyes .had once, and of their shadows
How many loved your moments of glad
And loved your beauty with love false or
But one man loved the pilgrim soul In'
And loved the sorrows of your changing
And, bending down beside the glowing bars, .
Murmur, a little sadly, how. love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead,
And hldr"rds"facoamid a crowd of stars.
