Kansas City, Jan. 8. More than six hundred Missouri democrat gath ered in Convention hall here today in a "harmony conference." Most of the leaders of the iarty in the state were on hand and the spirit of all the speeches was "Missouri must be redeemed." , "Cannonism" and. "Al drkhism" were denounced.

The Baliinger-Pinchot episode was injected into the gtnering when Champ Clark, the minority leader of the house of representatives, said Iwr on interview: "The dismissal of Pin cot is one of the first steps in Roose velt's candidacy for the republican nomination for president. And if Roosevelt runs for president it will le the hottest fight that has taken place in- ' a republican convention since Grant was defeated in the dog days of 1880" ' Former Governor Folk in his ad dress this afternoon said in, part: "The great fight In this country to day is to equalize the distribution of wealth. There is a growing demand for protection for the people against monopoly instead of protecting mo nopoly against the ieople. The only spuriMjse of the protective tariff is to stifle competition. The democratic party should take a clean cut stand against the system of protection. 'Xo protection for monopoly should be the battle cry in the next campaign. "With Cannonism and ' Aldrichism in control of the legislative machin ery of the national government, di recting , party policies, suppressing reformative measures, blocking every movement in the interest of the peo ple, making sMrt of representative government, and. insolent with power, defying public opinion and planning further to serve the, special interests, there is a picture that should alarm every patriotic American." Former Governor Francis said: "We can achieve a victory in Mis court if we are united and harmon ious. All that Is required in addition to concerted action on our part is to acquaint the people of the state with the iidquities and deceptions of the republican tariff and that can be done' by quoting utterances from re publican lips. A triumphant democ racy in this state will - mean much to our brethren in other states. We will achieve success." THEY SUBSEQUENTLY ATE. Kansas City, Jan. 8.

Jan. 8. Daniel Guggen heim, president of the American Smelting & Refining company, said today that the present moment was opportune to advocate the federal regulation of the copper markets. Following direcfly upon the presi dent's special message recommending similar action In the case of railroads, and tuken in connection with the re .cent rumors of a huge combination of all the copper mining companies, the statement is received with interest. Mr. Guggenheim bases his recom mendations on the demoralization not only in the business of mining cup per, but also among those interests which , used manufactured copper in processes. Incident upon the fluctua tions from 25 cents a pound for cop per to 12 cents a pound. Mining, he said, is a hazardous enterprise, re quiring under modern conditions very large outluys of capital, and. Indeed, more than any other industry, a sta ble market. Stability, he believes, can best be obtained by federal regu lation. ' "I deprecate all unnecessary inter ference with business on the part f the government," says Mr. Guggen heim, "yet I appreciate the necessity .for It, and cannot but admire the result which has been obtained by the German government in its effort to foster German commerce. Many articles of German production, like our own production of copper, are largely exported, and the German government has takey a very lively interest in regulating the production and sale of such articles as to bring about as full a return to the empire as is warranted by the economic sit uation. "The price of copper metal should not be the result of speculation, but our aim seems to be to sell our prod uct to European consumers at panic prices. The people of the I'nited States are throwing away millions of dollars every year and wasting the mineral resources -of the country by a bad economic policy. Some means must be devised whereby this unsat isfactory condition may be done away with." SUBSIDENCE OF SEARCH FORIISSROBERTAOEJANON Leads Newspapers to Conclude That She Has Been Found.

ARMY BILL 0 Still Not Quite Thin Enough To Suit Mr. Taiwey VIEW OF CHAIRMAN HULL The Civil War Made It Im possible For This Coun try to Run an Army and a wavy on wind Bin Carries $95,612,718. Washington. Jan. 8. The general de bate on the army appropriation bill consumed the entire time of the house today, and there seemed no disposition to discuss that measure, but members took the opportunity U? speak on a variety of subjects. Representative Hull of Iowa, chair man of the committee on military af fairs, explained that the. bill carried an appropriation of $95,612,718 for the maintenance of the army during the fiscal year 1910, and urged Its passage as reported, stating that the estimates had been pared to the bone.

The $170. OOn.OoO given annually to pensions, he said, should not be included as a war cost, being rather a charity. He justified the enormous amount so spent because a result of the war which made the appropriation neces sary was to keep the republic intact." Had there been any other result, the country eventually would have divided into a half dozen republics, none im portant eWugh to command the re spect of the world powers. Members took the opportunity af forded by the debate on the army bill to make speeches on a variety of sub jects, and at the expiration of five hours to w hich the general debate was limited, the house adjourned until Mondays without a single voice being raised in opposition to the measure.
