MISSOLRI AND CONFEDERACY. r;..r(f V ! a'h w.Il rm in old notion tliat .dlsnoMil s.d In 1801. The blotrapha of the late senator tell that he aa a member of the Confederate congress, and, at he was a reeldunt of .Missouri at the time of the rebellion, it will be natur ally saamnod that this state went through the rations of gettlHg out of the Union. livery few months koine body or other, In calling the roll of the state belonging to the Jeff Da vis regime mention Missouri a one of them. Hut they are In orror. A body calling Itself the leglela ture of Mlsourl met In Neosho, In 'he aouthwwtern port of the state, In the latter part of 161, under a Mil by Claiborne F. J nekton, who pretend--d Ui be governor of Missouri. Tha body went through the form of pn IMC an ordinance of srcetslon, and the Rlrhmondi autfeorlti'-i went through the motions of "admitting Mlawrort to the Confederacy. In this way Mr. Ve" and various other persons from this state were In Richmond f.t one time and another between the latter et f 1S61 and the final smash-up In the sprint of 18C?. Hut here are a few points which show that Missouri was never a mem ber of tho Confederacy. Tho legis lature which pretended to take Mis souri out of the Union In the lntter part of 1S81 surrendered the right ot determining Missouri's relations to tho national government In the early days of 18C1 to a convention elected by tho people. That conven tion, by a majority of 80,000, rolled up for Its Unionist members, decided overwhelmingly In favor of clinging to tho Union. Tho stnto furnished troops under IJncoln's cnlls, although Governor Claiborne F. Jackron re fused to furnish any. When Jackson, In tho summer of 1 SGI . made war up on the Union tho convention deposed him nnd appointed Gamblo In hlB placo as provisional governor of Mis souri when ho called tho legislature In session at Neosho. That town won not the capital of the state then or ever Neosho was selected because It could bo under the protection of Sterling Price's rebel nrmy. The JnckBon legislature lacked a quorum In each brnncb. Itn ordinances, stat utes and resolutions bound nobody and counted for nothing. Missouri never belonged to the Confederacy. Mr. Vest nnd his associates from this section had as Utile right to talk for this state In Richmond as they would have hail to represent Czar Alexan der empire at tl-at city.
