ADDITORIAL It has been said, "By his seasonal clearances shall a merchant be known. The real merchant quickly clears his
stocks, relying on low prices plus quality to do the work. He will get in money to reinvest in goods for the next season." The above
quotation tells the story. New goods for fall will soon arrive. We want to clear our stocks of broken lines. The price reductions are
drastic to insure a rapid clearance. And practically every department has many items it wishes to clear immediately, articles you
are using now and will use for another two months. These goods you can purchase at such savings as will warrant you in buying a
supply and laying it aside until next season if you cannot use it now. Everyone in the store will be on tip-toe and keenly alive to
serve cheerfully and promptly. Come early and choose early.

CUMMINGS KEYNOTE CALL -
Chairman Cummings' call to the
militant Democracy of the country
will meet with ready response from
every red-blooded Democrat. There
was- no pussy-footing, evading or
double meaning phrases, but a clear
cut, positive declaration upon .every
public question before the people to
day for settlement and a ringing defy
to Lodge's keynote address, of a
personal fight upon President Wilson
and all that his administration has
accomplished and stands for.
He championed the League of Na
tions covenant as the "Monroe Doc
trine of the World," and of the peace
treaty's defeat by the Senate he said:
"No blacker crimes against civiliza
tion -have ever soiled the pages of our
history." - He characterized the Re
publican platform as "reactionary and
provincial." "Filled with premeditat
ed slanders and vague promises, it will
be searched in vain for one construc
tive suggestion for rue reformation or
the conditions which it ,critizes and
deplores." "The oppressed peoples of
the earth will look to it in vain. It
contains no message of hope for Ire
land; no word of mercy for Armenia;
and it conceals a sword for Mexico."
He declared that the peace time
record of the Democratic party from
March, 1913, to the outbreak of the
world war has to its credit more ef
fective, constructive and remedial
legislation than the Republican parry
had placed-upon' the statute books :n
a generation." -
In speaking -of-the League of Na
tions, he said: ."What nations ttaud
outside? Revolutionary Mexico, Bol
shevist Russia, unspeakable Turkey
and the United States."
"Let the true purpose of our party
be clearly understood," he said in
concluding his address. '"We stand
squarely for the same ideals of peace
as those for which the war was
fought. We supoort without flinch
ing the only feasible plan for peace
and justice. We will not submit to
the repudiation of the peace treaty or
to any process by which it is whittled
down to the vanishing point We de
cline to compromise our principles or
pawn our immortal souls for selfish
purposes. We do not turn our backs
upon the history of the last three
years. We seek no avenue of re
treat. We insist that the forward
course is the only righteous course.
"We seek to reestablish the fruits
of victory, to reinstate the good faith
of our country and to restore it to its
rightful place among the nations of
the earth. Our cause constitutes a
summons to duty. The heart of
America stirs again. The ancient
faith revives. The immortal part of
man speaks for us. The services of
the past, the sacrifices of war, the
hope of the future, constitute a spir
itual force gathering; about our ban
ners. We shall release again the
checked forces of civilization and
America shall take up once more tne
leadership of the world."
NOW AND THEN
Next to the deadly parallel column,
is the digging into old files of news
papers when a man becomes promi
nent enough to' be nominated for
president by one of the -great political
parties, and especially is that so
when the candidate happens to have
been a newspaper man and editorial
writer. This is what has happened to
Warren G. Harding, Republican nom
inee. In 101a Senator Harding then,
as he docs now, owned the Marion,
Ohio, Star. Naturally as an old line
Republican he was enthusiastic for
Taft, the regular Republican nominee
and very bitter against Col. Roose
velt. One of his editorials headed
"Aaron Burr, His Protype," says:
"In seeking a prototype for Col.
Rooseyell.among jmbiic men of the
country one finds the closest re
semblance to Aaron Burr. The same
towering ambitions, the same over
bearing disposition and ungovernable
temper, the same ruthlessness in dis
regarding the ties of friendships,
gratitude and reverence, the same
tendency to bully and browbeat, and
finally the same type of egotism and
greed for power and the same men
tal tendency generally.'' During the
whole of that campaign hardly, a day
passed but what the Col. was shot
full of editorial holes, among the
shots being that "Tie (Roosevelt) was
utterly without conscience and re
gard for truth and the greatest faker
of the time." The Star also referred
to Col. Roosevelt as a Benedict
Arnold and to .Hiram Johnson as
"both a faker and a black-guard."
These editorials were written by
Mr. Harding and would make mighty
good reading to Col. Roosevelt's
friends, and we have no doubt Sen
ator Johnson and his friends would
peruse them with much interest and
no doubt they would enhance the en
thusiasm of those .gentlemen in Hard
ing's campaign,
An interesting fact in this connec
tion is that the copy of the files of
the Star for that period has disap
peared from the office of the. Tri
bune, a business and political rival
of the Star.
The American army authorities
have informed the mayor of Cher
bourg, France, that the port ot
DoHghmet will be the port of embark
ation for the shipment of American
dead to the United States, beginning
in September. The bodies will be
placed in hermetically sealed metal
caskets, protected by heavy boxes.
The town of Equetxe ville-will be the
assembling point from which the
bodies will be taken on board home
ward bound American steamships.
LETTER BY FORMER GOVERN
OR PROVES THE BIG SEN-
SATION OF "HOUSE
CLEANING" AS
. SEMBLY
ignations of Babler and Cole De
manded as Result of Their Con
nection With Slush Funds
of Candidates.
Sedalia. Mo.. Inne 26. The much.
advertised Republican "house-cleaning"
has been pulled off here as sche
duled but Jacob L. Babler, Republi
can National Committeeman from
-Missouri, and W. L. Cole, Chairman
of the Republican State Committee,
still retain their posts and show no
signs of intent to resign.
Sonic of the delegates in attend
ance were inspired with honest nv.
tives and were seeking only new lead
ership while others, according to the
gossip around the meeting, want a
new regime because they behove- they
will fare better in possible fed-oral
patronage if Babler and Cole are
ousted. Feu- were- nrenareri fur hi
thunderbolt hurled from the Wcs: by
former Governor Herbert S. Hadley,
now living in Colorado, who sent a
letter to the convention saying- that
slush funds were nothing new in Re
publican circles in Missouri that
they had been used in the campaigns
of 1908, 1912 and 1916.
Hadley s revelations were not
startling from a news point of view
as nearly all Missourians who have
followed politics can testify to huge
sums of Republican money dumped
into the state to carry-elections but
they gained added import because of
the high position of the man who
made them. Hadley's letter was car
ried throughout the nation by. the As
sociated Press, thereby adding to the
shame of Missouri. Hadley bluntly
made the assertion that unles Repub
licans "clean house" they might as
well abandon all hopes for carrying
Missouri this falL
"This meetinr was railed f t,m
purpose of making fight on commer
cialized politics and commercial pol
iticians," said Col. W. C Pierce of
aaaryvine in opening the meeting.
"b.verv four veara antne mmlu
of our nartv seek in
M ' j taw wmj
to sell and deliver the Rennhlioana f
miasoun as 11 iney were mere chat-1
icis; rour years ago senator Weeks
was the victim. You all remember
eight years ago when ball-bats took
the place of ballots in the Third Dis
trict, raising a. stench from San
Diego to Boston, all this from these
same men. We must purge the party
if we are to win in November. Let
us fight."
Pierce reviewed the history of the
Lowden scandal in Missouri as a re
sult r kT file 1ircirlntial na nAlAa f ec.
manager giving the combine $38,000
for the nnrnosp nf "inflnen.-incr" dele
gates to the Republican national con
vention to tavor . J-owden for tne
presidency.
Following his address Matt G. Rey
nolds, of St. l.ouis, was selected as
chairman.
Revnnlils in his cnooi-h aairl- "Thin
is the first political convention here
1 have attended in 20 years. Those
days we had honorable leaders."
The lengthy resolutions adopted by
the meeting demand the resignations
of Babler and Cole and threaten legal
action against them in case they do
not quit.
