Loutslana, Mo., Kept. 11. Breaker
Champ Ciark is being entertained to
day by his homo folks at a great baa
ket picnic, all of I'ike county and the
greater part of the population of the
ninth Missouri congressional district
regardless of party affiliation. Joining
to make hie home-cumin? from Wash
ington an epoch In Missouri history
Representatives Pepper of Iowa and
Ratney of Illinois also are In attend
ance. Prefacing an address dealing with vi
tal problem facing the American peo
ple, Speaker Champ Clark told his
friends and neighbors, something of the
struggles of hla early days and the
ties which bound htm to Missouri soil.
lie told of starling hla Missouri ex
perience by teaching school thirty-six
yearn ago, and said:
"I cnmfl to Louisiana, Mo., on J 1 0,
liorrowed the first time I ever iw
him, from Judge 11. II. Priest, now an
eminent lawyer of St. Louis, and then
struggling along ns city attorney of
Moberly. And that la the last time I
have borrowed from Mlssourlans."
Warming to hla subject,, the speaker
,made a plea for more politics and more
politicians, and forcefully asserted that
upright and honest politicians are the
rule, and not the exception in Ameri
ca. The More Politics, the Better.
"It la constantly asserted by the un
thinking that we have too much poll
tlca and too many politicians," wild
the Speaker. "When we reflect that
the word . polltlca", .In. its tlglcr, and
nobler sense, means the science of
government, wc must concede that the
more politics we have, the better, for
government, affecls the happiness and
prosperity of every resident between
the two oceans, nnd, therefore, we
should all strive to make our govern
ments, national, state and municipal,
as nearly perfect as any human Insti
tution esn be."
'Instead of there being too many
politicians, there are not enough. In
n country whose Institutions are based
upon popular suffrage, every man
should be a politician, and every man
owes a portion of his time, energy and
talents to the service of the state. I
do not mean by that that every man
should run for office. That Is a 'oor
business at best poor when you suc
ceed Inexpressibly poor when you fall.
I have been tried by both extremes of
fortune and speak by the card on that
subject.
All Should Take Interest.
"What I do mean l thai evry citi
zen, so far as In him lies, study the
problems which confront us, and help,
so far as we can, to solve them for the
betterment of government, the Im
provement of society, and I he perpet
uity of the republic. If i:i eds be, he
should become a candidate for office
ns a duty to his country and ids kind.
Truth to tell. It requires but little
coaxing to Induce the average citizen
to run for office. v
"It Is the duty of every citizen to
attend both the primaries and the gen
eral election to the end that good and
capable men may bo selected. The
man who falls to do .that except for
valid reasons, falls short of living up
to his privileges nnd of assuming his
fair proportion of the governmental
burden. Neglecting that, he is
tsopped from sotting up a lugubrious
howl about the unfitness of officials
nnd the corruption of politics.
"No victory for purity In politics has
ever yet been won by falling to atlend
the elections and then growling and
kicking about the character of the men
selected.- The only way to reform pol
itics Is to be active before and at the
elections, for Jefferson .uttered an im
WEALTHY MERCHANT HAS HIMSELF
CHARGED WITH MURDER OF HIS WIFE
Pittsburg, Pa., Sept. 11. At his own
request George (Joldcn. a wealthy, shoe
nierchant of Wlckboro, Ohio, was In
dicted by the grand Jury on a charge
of homicide for the alleged killing of
his wife. Ciolden then went before the
court and was released In $10,000 bonds
until 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
The case Is ft peculiar one. Golden
shot and killed his wife on the night
of July 1H. at their home In Wlckboro.
To the authorities he had stated be
had mistaken his wife for a burglar
and the coroner exonerated him.
Several weeks ago a brother of the
dead woman reopened the case and
mortal truth when he Bald, 'Eternal
vigilance Is the price of liberty."
Corrupt JWen Being Weeded Out.
"In nnswer to all this, It la some
times urged that there la o much cor
ruption in polltlca that good men are
defiled by participation therein. That
excuse la not tenable. In fact. It is
preposterous. To use a common ex
pression, 'it will not wash.'
"The probabllltlea are that there Is
not a congressional district In America
where there is a majority of purchas
able voters, and that the unpurchas
able voters can control every one of
them If they would only do their duty
"No doubt, there are corrupt men In
politics; ao are there corrupt men In
every business and profession, but It Is
a consolation to rellect that there are
not so many corrupt ones either in
polltlca or In any other wark of life
this year as there were last year, and
there will not be so many corrupt ones
next year, as there are this year. Cor
rupt men ought to be scourged out of
public life with a whip of scorpions
and they are being weeded out.
"Rut while there is undoubtedly cor
ruptlon In politics, the malicious mar
plots who go about proclaiming that
all public men are corrupt ought to be
restrained from running at largo pro
bono publico. They are the enemies
not only of the republic but of all con
stituted authority."
More Enlightment Needed.
In conclusion, Speaker Clark plead
ed for more enlightment on the real
political facts, and said:
"The persistent charge that all pub
lie men are for sale and that all gov
ernment In this country Is thoroughly

Ten Per Cent of the Capitalize,
t'on of Roads.

Meleher, vice president of the Chicago-
Rock Island A Pacific railroad In
Utter published here, calls attention
to the serious nature of pending rail
way legislation Intended to safeguard

duced Into Congress requiring all roads
to discard their wooden equipment

now pending would require the roads
to enlarge their clearances at a cost
of $44,000,000 and Install universal
block signals at a cost of $2X0.000.000.

would call for the expenditure by the

per cent of the net capitalization of
all the reads In the United States,
which amounted to $14. 33N, 575,000 at
