Editor Lamkin, of the Lee's Summit Journal, is evidently a hula out of patience with tbe manner in which that town is run. He says: Oak drove is one of tbe best towns of its s'z? in tbe state, its ciuzeus are pushers frutn the word go. and when they want any improvement they go and get it and it doesu't take all sum mer to do it, either. It was decided the place needed telephones and tbe deeision was bardly made before us enterprising citizens were talking to each other over a nice little exchange. Now tbey propose to connect Hicks City, ssoi Mills and other little towns In that vicinity. Lee's Summit . has been talking telephone exchange and country lines for two years and is still waiting for some one to come in and hiiild them and then take all tbe profits. , ' : , , Says Editor Tatlow, of the Holden Enterprise: Luther Hickman, of Warrensburg, state supervisor of build, ing and loan associations and member of the state democratic committee, is a the town 01 ijarroiuun iur g,uw ioo -unu . . prosperous merchant, but he was once unpaid wsrrants lssueu uj mo jm - - u"f . . engaged in a business that he diilikt-s i nil for Ihn warrants - num.n.-uau -- discu9j) eV(jn wjh hu ,nl0ule i.suedbythe present aaministrauon. ,,,ue ' . . . . friends. A few years ago Hickman judging irom mis ",D " crettine in the hole a little deeper o ' every year and. notwiinsianuing the administrations are promising to get out of debt, tbey only get in a little deeper every year. Tbis U tbe way Editor W. C. Kapp, of the Warrensburg Journal-Democrat, pud it: The democratic officers of Missouri, are making a mistake In answering all the twaddle which is spewed out by the unscrupulous repub lican press. Since the republicans hare found out that they can gain attention of and annoy the admin istration, .they are firing accusations thick and fast. Some say if tbe gov ernor had not given them permission , to examine the books they would have said La bad something to bide. No Houbt thev would have said that and more. But tbey are already saying as much. Kverybody in Missouri under stands Just how much weight to attach to a republican accusation regarding Missouri affairs. Let 'em talk. Ignore them. decided to branch out in business, 10 he organized a company for manufac turing a patent hair oil that was guar anteed to straighten out the kinks of the colored folks' hair. A Warrens burg physician, now a resident of Kansas City, was responsible for tbe patent, and Hickman and others organized the company. A bustling salesman was started down the road and gave free exhibitions on tbe street Negroes would swarm around tbe talesman and would have their bair straightened almost instantaneously. The kinks would remain out of the half for two or three days and by that time the salesman would be in parts unknown. The salesman got tbe Hick man firm in trouble one day by osing too strong a solution of tbe hair straightener. A negro discovered, after one application, that all bis bair was a total loss. All kinds of law suits were threatened as tbe negro's hair was actually dissolved, so tbe V arrensburz capitalists desired to t dissolve tbe business as well. mounted to a little over i.UUU.ow inn. There was time when the Wabasb officials thought that the pioperty would reach its limit when it moved 4,000,000 tons. And the earnings resulting directly from the handling of the 4,000,000 tons will scarcely exceed the revenue from other business which the tonnage ill bring to the company. , It is very difncoli to estimate tbe strategic im portance to the Waoash of this great increase in tonnage. It will go to all of its connections with 4.000,000 tons of new huslness. The western lines in distributing tbeir eastbound busi ness, will give great consideration to the fact that the Wabash has 4.000,000 tons of steel 'and iron out of Pitts bur. Thev will want their share ol it, and will increase the amount of business routed by the Wabasb. With a line into Pittsburg the Wabash ton nage ought to be almost doubled witb a corresponding increase in earnings. The volume of business represented by 4,000,000 tons is not comprehended by considering the abstract figures. It will require from eleven to twelve trains per day with the largest loco motives to handle tbe business out of Pittsburg. This calculation is based on the supposition that the weather is favorable to the movement of large trains. During tte winter the number of trains would be increased to fifteen or sixteen. Four million tons of this character ot freight would fill between 130,000 and 140,000 cars. Put them in trains witb locomotives and caboose attached and you will fill a four-track line and tbe usual amount of siding ot such a line extending from Toledo to Pitts burg. If you would stand them on a double-track line they would extend from Pitt.burg to Chicago. They would also fill tbe Wabash from Tole do to St. Louis if it were a double- track line and block all of the yards on tbe road. Throw all of these cars into a single train, and it would ex tend from New York through Toledo to a point 100 miles west of Chicago. It would be a train 1,000 milos in days of horses and wagons and stage coaches. Within tbe memory of some of the older citizens of Toledo, a ton would be a two-horse load on the .n.,n rnmia from Toledo tO PillS- ""IS"" bure. Giving the horse tbe advan tage of all doubts and it would requirb 4.000,000 teams or 8,000,000 good draft horses to move tbe Wabash ton nage out of Pittsburg, if it were put luto one load. Pile 4,000,000 tons of iron and steel into a wagon train, and start it west out from Pittsburg. Driving each team as close as safely would permit, and about the time the last team walked out of Pittsburg, tbe first team of the line encircling tbe globe, would enter Pittsburg from tbe east.
