THMEBUBLICAN, MOf I.TAIDTKREJItof TumtoM, No. 9. Fuday, Maich 17, 1899. :T0OTIH000L8. At the coming April election, the voten d the School District of Marshall will be called upon to de cide, whether or not loan ol ,. uoo abalt be authorized for the pur pote ol erecting anew school build Ing tad furnishing the same, and to Issue bonds for thli loan, pay able la 20 year or at the option of the district In five year. The other propositions are the same as those usually voted upon each year and there Is no reason to be lieve any different action will be taken upon them than has been each year in the past. It 1 not every year however, that the people of Marshall are asked for a new building and this proposition become? of paramount Importance, over its coordinate ones. A it is seen to be a question that confronts us only once In many years, it is well that the voters should have a review of the necessity for and object In, the erection of a fourth building, before making a decision. The report of Superintendent Spencer, given at the request of the Board of Education, has beeu published, showing the number of students enrolled at each building to be an far excess of cither the air 0 floor space, requisite for good sanitary and working conditions. The need of a building, devoted to and equipped" for High School report; buf nJoilMlf.c'tai "j.'.l'i ings now in use would convenient ly accommodate a larger uumucr of pupils than Is at present pout ble, on account of the room rcqulr cd for the special departments of a High School. Aside from the many conveniences to be derived from a fourth building situated In a more central part of the city and especially adapted for High School work, there stands back of all this, not alone the present need which has virtually become a 11c cessity, but the constantly Increas log necessity of additional room for a growing and prosperous pub lie school system. Though the "croaker'1 might look at the present excellence of our school system and the high grade to which it has attained, and In perfect satisfaction over the re suits attained, decry any further Increase in school expenditures, such as a new .building would re quire. Hut even the presentjMand ard cannot lie maintained to meet the increasing attendance, without the additional building. Aside from this pressing reason, the most for midable argument against any de lay, lies In the opportuneness of the time. Mr. Mnrrell has very gen erously offered a convenient site, which If we refuse, the day must soon come when our short sighted ucss will not bu a subject ol any very pleasant retrospection. Then again, the bonds In be issued can lie floated nt n very low rate of in terest, probably as low as yi per cent. These an: two advantages to be gained by a timely acceptance of the proposition to be voted. upon in this coming election, Hut above all, Marshall people should remem ber, that our well equipped public .jr . ecbools'have been in halt the mak ing ol our little city. Her beat citizens include many of (hose from the farms of this county and other parts of the country who have moved here to gain educational ad vantages for their children. This Influx baa greatly Increased the value of your property and will continue to, so long as you offer the same Inducements, When your property is increasing your wealth, It Is but right and just that you should be liberal in any move ment toward that which his been in a good measure the cause of the same. The schools In which you have taken sufficient pride to liberally support, and by such backing and efficient superintendence, to make their standard as high as any in the state, the progressive citi xens of our district must not allow to retrograde, for to stand still In an age of progress, Is falling back' ward. The public schools of Mar- ahall should keep pace, with the other improvements going on around us, to make this city sub' stantlal and afford its rising citi zenship with the advantoges of thorough education. TI1E POLIOE MA0H1HE. If there ever was a more con inc- iugvproof, that the Democracy of this state has lost Its respect for and even adherence to, the principles ol Its early leaders, than the pasrage of the late police bill, the records of its past governors and leglsU' tures does not reveal it. The bill fastens upon the city of St. Louis a minimum expenditure of joo,ooo a year for the police department, which Is to be controlled by a board ot tour ponce coniniisiuuci -r minted bv the eovernor. This is ... f m . which can be expressed in few words, but Its significance has never been realized, nor will it likely be so, until the evils which are inhetent to such n system, spring up and bring forth fruit. The Republican city of St. Louis has been an eye sore to the macblue Democrats of this state and also a source of avaricious envy to the democratic politicians of that city ol the stripe of Higglns, Ilrady, Nelson ct al, who in thts most un worthy legislature, have found an opportunity to legalize their schemes ami foist iipon this city a most grievous wrong. Aside from lielng an infringement of the right of citizens to local municipal government, it has no palliating features, with which to hide Its In tent or disguise its impleading shape. The country members hope to make it right with their constitu ents, who do not look with favor upon the robbery of others, be cause they are not affected them selves, by showing that it was done in the Interest of the party. Hut what trust will the people have In those who rob others? Docs the witnessing of a robbery beget con fidence In one for the person com mitting the offense. I3vcau.sc the city of St. Louis Is 'Republican, is no reason why the state should presume to run Its local affair, even to the police department. The country Democrats of this state surely do not favor I lie build lug up ol a Tammany organization in its metropolis, so that through trickery, their party may be mode even more secure and have more patronage to dispose of to its office seekers. The principles of a party may be V dear to a man's heart, but. surely he7 caaaot wish to see the triumph 6t them, through a ruthless disre gard for the local rights of others. With a minimum expenditure of 5oo,ooo per year by this depart ment, imposed upon the city, the machine created would soon dis tance these figures. The enact ment Of this bill would Indicate that a Tammany organization for St. Louis Is to be built up In the course of a few cars, but Uses tablishment may make the outside state as Republican as the city government of New York tends to make and keep the Umpire state. Writers of obituaries and spring poets may take fair warning that their writings will not be received at this Office, Don't open the flood gates of your pent up sent! mentality. At the World's l-'air Uanquct Saturday night in St. Louis, Knels Icy of Carroll hurrahed for both l'alne's Celery i'omouud and Governor Stephens, who now fig' 11 res so prominently in their ad. Two years niio. the Missouri House voted to invite Uiv.111 to ad dress tnc members and he accented. Saturday a similar motion, was made, but Mr. Dryatt will never no cept It be-causc, it didn't pass. The two cent car-fare rate has been laid to rest for another two years. The regularity with which it comes to the surface In every legislature and the case with which Col. Phelps turns it down arc mat' ters of history, too often repented to be disputed. n-mncrats or .siiin support their representatives in the i.ai.i..,. ! it..!, iMg from Kt Louis the right to run her own police pedartment can not work on any other principle in appeasing their own consciences, than that the end justifies the means. In other words, the svicccss of what Is now Inappropriately called demo iiul' U Miuiuuttnt to principle. The snubbing of llryou by the llouc was at least a good thing for the state. Ills expenses last time Included the hiring of every brass band In reach, the buying of all kinds of $i badges aud 15 sashes. They did things up right, but it cost the state treasnr" a few. Hut all this might convey a mMmprcs slon. The House is not ccouomi cal; it's n sad but, true mistake if you think such a motive influenced them. "They don't care for ex penses." The party in power in this state would save the credit of the state by robbing the counties of the sa loon license. The money which is spent for better roads will probably go to pay for the extravagance of tue present legisssture. It Is virtu ally robbery o( the county to pay the political debts of those now holding office. If the people of Missouri will silently acquiesce iu all this because It Is done by Dem ocrats, "who can do no wrong," nicy couiu smile at nelng robbed and entertain an Insult. - On Do Trill tha ilory , When yonr bract scbH, ami you in-1 blllotia, conill paUd, anil, out it liini, Willi your loinacb tour and no ajrlltr, Jual buy a packasa vt Hood' Pill And taia a dow, from 1 to 4 Mil,, You will ba aurprlwd at how railly tbey will do 111 r work, cur your beadacbt and btllouiiraBis rouas tha llTrr and mat you Uxl happy acaln. m ccma, D01aDjraj1uu.111curaaaa1crs.4a ' .. . . .,.- ..
