Our esteemed contr-tiirKiraiy the Texas County Tlimmw. or Jacks rorkc. prints this week an Inter view with one of its citizens. Mr. Eph l'tiHnine, re jrariJinjr tho Honorable .1. N. Koote. "whom lie met st Peno, Christian County, on December 13. while visilinc pome cnttle which lie had there on tiastuie for the winter." Mr. Pnllliine's pulilMiod remarks are far from complimentary to the Honorable Koote. who calls our attention to them. This paper does not by any means assume the burden of Honorable route's con troversies, but we think It but fair to present hero his observations in turn upon Mr. P.. who secured n public medium for his criticism. A man publicly attacked should be accorded the privilege of a reply. Finite j-ajs in his co:umunication addressed "To the People": The- point that strikes me about this Mr. Eph Pullblne 1 that he hnd hl cattl" over there at Peno on pasturage for the Tinier. At lcM that's what the Jacks Torks paper ray In Its preface to the extravagant article upon mv chararter and personality, and tho onlv ennclusion I can arrivs at is that either the Jacks Forks Journalist Is deluded or Mr. Bph Pullblne. Is a mighty careless farmer, for who ever heard of putting cattle out on pasture down there at this timo of year? Everybody else at Peno is feeding his stock at this timo of year. Thcv ha herd winters there and no sensible man that I know of counts on a ery lieaw crop of winter Brass. I know Christian Cojnty is a fine county, but It won't pas ture a (treat many cnttle when It Is under idx Indies of snow. At any rate I'll leave It to the people. To my mind something is wrons somevhero with this Mr. Pull bine who criticises me so severely, but I fotbuar to say anything about him al though I saw lilm, conversed with him and had ample opportunity (more than I wanted, in fact) for observing him." This leaves nothlnj: to be added by us, the case bciiiE, ns Honorable Foote suggest, one for the people. -. WHO ARE DEMOCRATS? Between 1900 and last summer the Democratic party was dluged with advice on the twin subject of reorganization and regularity. Some thousands of political Coctor told the party bow to win suc cess with new lenders; and some other thousands fulminated threats against everybody who had not fully agreed with tbe leadership of 1S0G and 1900. Preliminary utterances Indicate thnt we are to have another four years of the same fluent advising. Scnslblc'Democrats may profitably begin at oncp to combat the Idea that one faction or another Is to administer the affairs of the party by proscribing other factions. In the struggle of contemporary ambitions. In the honest or simulated cntliusla.sm over temporary be liefs, many men lose sight of the eternal purposo of rhe Democratic party. The party has one inN tt'oTT which gives It .1 lire as long as that of the human race; and that mission is the protection of the individual against the encroachments of power. The Democracy of the world is organized under varied forms. In the United States the organization is most definite and complete, but In etery country thcie is a democratic movement, and in caseiitiaU It Is everywhere the same. Equal rights to all and special privileges to none is the begiunlng and end of Democratic euergy. Eiery ijuestion of a par ticular time must be, by the Democratic party. Judged under tbe test of its application to this prin ciple. And Democratic organization was never more needed. All other political bodies aie moving to ward a renewal of feudalism nud oligarchy. All other tendencies are toward the limitation of man liopd by the selfish wishes of privilege. The recent campaign in the United States, ending in appaient disaster, was of vast sen-ice in developing lines of action for the Democracy. The Democratic parry lost few of Its supporters. Many were not aroused and iiM not vote, but they arc Democrats and are icady to be loval oters. when their minds seize upon the issues which the times picsent. DiMMLsbiou itltlilu the party may proceed, must proceed. Hut. to be piofltablc. It must clarify ques tions, not iuilaiue fjitionjl ilistui-t. Kterv nun who believes m the exaltation, the cnLour.igement. I lie development of the imlivid11.1I N a Demociat and every Mich man should be welcomed as a part of Demociatlc orgunuatiuu. 4- WATCH THE I.OIilli. It is as n-grettable as it ih true that .1 stiong demonstration of public consWelKc cannot of itself. ipso facto and at oute accomplis-li reform-. 1 he meie fact tli.it public opinion is outspoken iig.un-t an evil does not ueceivaiilj mean the 'iul of tii.it evil. OthcnvNe we should have a voiy clean state of things here in Missouri at present, inning the In-t two jears the people have almost constantly neil out against ration, forms of corruption. 'I he pul pit, the politicians am! the iu have combined to place the stamp of public disippioval upon almost I everything which in repieheuhfnlc In soveinmeiitnl and administrative c-micenis. l!ut the actual re sults for good will depend upon the men who have been pur in ollice as the people's agents. I-pecially have the people decried that form of conuptiou Willi vvhldi the lobbv is associated, and have laid the ban against the lobby ils-Hf Lobbv -ism is In deepest disrepute in .Missouri. Hut Its dis grace, the public clamor against it. the ier.se antipa thy to it, will only drive it to cre.iter s,.,ecy and caution. That the coming Legislature will have a strongly organized and closelv knit lubbv. perhaps the most formidable in 3 cats, is conclusively indi cated by drifl.s which come from the undoieurient of politics. Gorernor Folk's election has not accomplished reform, but has merely brought him to the threshold of reform in this direction. To watch, to detei t and to thwart the lobby, which will include and proba bly have its nucleus in members of the Assembly themselres. will demand the most unremitting vigilance and vigorous opposition; and m this task he should have the intelligent aid of the honest members In both house". A lobby winking from within is a moie difficult and dangerous matter than one operating from without, but with the coopera tion of honest members the Governor should be able to solve the problem. The final routing of lobbyism will come only when the man who willies to influence legislation is compelled to do his work in the open, in public. Tho laws which arc made for the people by their repreentatives must be made publicly, deliberations must be public, objections and qualification- must be in full view, and solicitations must be open and aboveboard. When such legislative i-onditious come, as they must inevitably, there will be an end to what we tnow as the lobby. Hut the lobby may Ik? at once rendered virtually a nullity if honest forces in the Legislature will combat it intelligently. Between the lobby influcii'c and the lawmaking force the point of ontact the place where the in fluence touche! is difficult to locate under any cir cumstances. Hut when the lobby is on the inside, when the lobby Influence and the lawmaking body arc to a certain extent the same. It would leiiuire some power alniot supernatural to delect its .ip erafions from the outside. The Governor will ri- quirc inside help to combat the lobby at Jefferson City during tlie coming session, and that help should be given at the very outset. Tho lobby should be, if possible, prevented from "lining up" weal; legis lators. Weak ones there are. Many of the ISepuli Ilcan members were nominated by machine ele ments the Republican voters in the counties paying little attention to the matter, being without hop' of electilic" their tickets and their election came as a surprise. Some communities awoke to find nntJ' plrable men In legislators' shoo The "old guard" in the Senate and the professional lobbyists on the outside will exert every effort to "own" the new members. Rep.1blic.1n or Democratic. How many o them arc capable of being possessed remains to be seen. Xhe senatorial struggle indicates that several of them are. but. happily, that not nil of them are. Some of the new timber appear to 'w strong. Honest forces In the Assembly should be organ i?ed in aid of tho Governor, who has declared im placable antagonism to the lobby, for only by or ganized vigilance and common effort can tho anti lobby elements be thoroughly effective. Between honest members of the Legislature no partisanship should be allowed to prevent earnest co-operation to this end. RAILWAY ACCIDENTS. Railway accidents aie a piomiuent feature of American news. We have become habituated to the story of the tiain wreck; It occasions no binprifc to the reader; unless the disaster is of unusual hize or is attended by unusual circumstances It moves no comment. Now and then harrowing details in the form of statistics are given the public. The accident tejiort of the Interstate Commerce Commission shows that 4L'0 passengers and :i,.!i7 employes were killed in the year ending last June, and that 8,077 passengers and 43.26G employes were Injured in the same period. The report gave rise to a statement that casualties wete Increasing at n more rapid rate than mileage, than freight traffic, than operating expenses or gross earnings, than money spent in improvements and rolling stock, and faster than the total number of passengers car ried; in a word, that casualties were Increasing faster than anything else even speed incident to the 1 all way business. Mr. Feiton, president of the Chicago and Alton, answers this statement with ample statis-tics, which show that travel is safer than It was fifteen years ago and that the proportion of accidents to the total number of paisseugeis carried Is less. There is some consolation In the answer but It Is hard to reflect long on comparative petcentages with tho harrowing results of last year in mind. We ute glad there were no more killed and injured, but we arc horrified thnt there were so many. Another railway president is quoted with a state ment which is of immense interest in this connec tion that DO per cent or the railway accidents un due to the carelessness of employes. If this lie true 1hc public's quarrel Is less with defective appliances, high speed, congested tiaffic and other mechanical conditions than It supposed. Given peifect condi tions as to these things and we should still have the larger part of our accidents. Undoubtedly the statement has a large ttuth in It and a gtavu warning to railway management more care should be expended uion the elimination of the dangers of carelessness; In the minimizing nnd division of responsibility among individuals, and in the selection of the individuals. Our railroads cannot be too well manned, and the less responsi bility for tbe protection of human life that Is Lild upon one man the better. Mechanical Improve ments reduce the responsibility. President Roose velt recognizes this In the recommendation for a Federal law making mechanical signals compulsoiy upon all roads. Improvement of the safely of railroading must go on rapidly It must never cease. It must go on rapidly to keep pace with other features of im provement and growth. Tho Interstate Commerce leport pieachcs this. It is good to know that, not withstanding our gieat iuctease in speed, travel is less dangerous; than formerly: but that it is still far too dangerous for i-oinfort every man knows and feels. I'ifiy-fivc thousand killed or maimed by the railroads last year Is a story which read" like war and is not less horiiulc: the barbarity of pence and (hillziitiiiu. HCSUANDS AND HUSBANDS.

Much Is preached about nirinity. love, temperament, charm ter. eomfnit. standing equality and personal attributes, but it appear, after all. that not rules or experience, but ideals, are the de Ini re lnfluenci s. It is apparent from International alliances that the qualifications of a husband must fit the Ideals; for. undoubtedly, the an rage nobleman who has led an American heiress to the altar has tevoin memkilions entirely different from those which would be required of an American husband. The qualifications which are acknowledged to be ire Karl's are popularity, an education, tine old estates, and kennels, and of these the Inst is not the least. In this country such qualifications would be deemed secondary, while the essentials would bo character, temperament, energy and ambition, 01. in one word, virility Tl... 1 . . . . .... ue nireiKii aspirant is prctcrreu evidently iiy a standard of ideals.
