The tmtiitiim. which the Sams u Kni't'in.i can lini iflVcteil in this issue, mill wiili tli.it thuugc, tliv niliiitinii of n iu-v name, may j.rti.Ti interest utir nuclei, with n eutloslty ut least, tii know why wc haw cast aside the nlil gaih anil assumed the new. If this suhtl t n t it mi doe nut unit with vonr good favor, in failing tn conform tu your fastidious Mm of what ii country uvwsavr should itiiikir its liletll, w would ask that yon Ik: lenient in your ciitleisnis, trusting tlmt with greater cxcri ii ui' in llti form, it may ptove our good fortune to inolil your ideal mote lunrly to con form with our own. Vit wc woulil aiitii'iilc no adverse criticism for taking this -tip, not withstanding the caution given. Mlcviug our stive, that I my and style arc not only charms in themselves, hut arc appropriate decorations nml otiutment. that will make even out limited prw.'ntntinn of the county iicw mote aeceptnhle to your tiile nml more inti-tcsting lo your thought. The w hole plan is n copied otic, vet in the constitution of it mutter, the management dor not accept pi emu t tiii-lrN n infallihle guides, hut trusts hv fc.-liug closely the desires of the pcop'c, to present that itt which their interest lien. This would ptove an umvot thy roid wrongful nmliitlott, were it not true, that conservative puhlic oritiiou in the healthy moral atuiosphciv of till county, iuu in a high nml houoralile course. We prefer to rink making our aim ordinary rnther than null iini Mime imprncticahle icsolve. wholly out of touch with those tin whom we ate ilc liulent for suppott. Among our potion Nihil, ue woulil )iiit with priile to the Col mi i Ma Herald, anil though perhaps we may le twitted a n "hahy llenilil", such intended slight woulil U' hut prul-e disguised. This well known weekly has witnessed most success fully the application of this form of IsHik, to the piililicatiiiu of a country wtekly. hoth lis regards thv return to the ndtcrlicr and the appreciation it is accotilcd hy the Mihscrlhcr and reader. The Maksiiai.i. Uiii'inuOAS-. though taking the cognomen of this city, whose interests it shall always attempt to uphold and promote, will continue to he an organ, whose columns Miall not lie limitul to any section of the coun ty, hut attempt to icach all It is almost essential that the name of the paper designate the city and not the toulity in which it is pith, lislied. HNpcricucc iiudec our former heading has taught tis. this much, hut our departure fiom "Saline", will piove to lie one only in name. '.. To mum up and epitomize this whole cxplati- ation. we have changed nothing, only have decided to put on a little style, hut at the Mine price of one dollar a year. Ah it costs the suh scriher nothing, it is our hope that it may pteae him. and there can at least no harm re sult in presenting a good apcaraucc. "MAKING" AN ISSUE. In the recent onslaught utsm trusts, many Democratic politician have .sought to impress lim that wine; of the atty yet loyal to silver, the necessity of inaugurating another issue, if success is invited to attend their effotts. Vet the xery idea of svekiug and fixing upon an issue, is tcpugnant to one desiring principle alsive .lf and conveys the idea of iuincully. In the coming ciiinMlgn. Dctnoctncy as the pretetidi.il destroyer of trusts, must meet uch charges, which will lie made forcihle and iinted hy showing up a record that ' not conform to these Ousting ami politic itcte-isc . Iinii.illy in Misuari will this prove true, where the lat legislature has stani cd loveii, the charges of not only affiliation with, hut stiliserviencv to trust mcasiiu. To make an Issue, means to juggle other Issues into oh .tirity and hring forwatd a new one calculated to enlist the mippoit of the people. Vit ll is hardly to U-supposed that Missouri IMiioctncy. without repudiating its Icgislatiuc. can enter very ardently as champions of the antitrust theory. IlriiiKiuit a discussion of trusts down to a state issue into which it must iuevitahly fall, as their power must he limited In state enact ments. wc- that the Democratic orators, who .ire lilatiux aitaiust these comhiuatioiis of cap ital. are not only makiiiK a fill-- national issue, hut cvndim; an important one to the state. There is douhle cumiiuK in this iolciit anti trust talk, Mich as was the theme and son of thvSt. I.ouis ktiupieterK. A St. Clair ninuty citlren. who is a Demo crat, had Imrti unto him the other day triplets all lioys. who when they In-conic voter will most likely hold to the Klitical faith of their father. Thus it is that nature comes to the aid of tile Jcffcrsotiian principles of our govern meiit, hy helping to discourage and overwhelm the Kepiihllcaus. I'rogrcss. I.img 1.-fore the aforesaid hoys come to their majotity Missouri will he in the Ucpuhlican column, and the chances are that the luiys will U' Kepuhlic.ins lisi. The nrty "voting first and reading the platform afterwards" is doomed to ileeat in Missouri and that very shortly loo. The coming getieiatiou will read mid think for themselves'. In this issue, the Kr.i'i in.ic n initiates a new kind of nuttier Into its columns, that may In looked forwatd to as a feature in our work that has herelofole Urn neglected, not that it was not deoiicil, hut for other teiiMius. It is the half lonen of sex crul of the students and nlxi the President of .Mi miri Valley College, to which we refer ; and which have Ueu insetted hi an account of I lie closing excreit's of this institution. So long as the Ukpi'iii.icw con tinue to pio-s'r thtough a liliernt support of the pisiplc of this county, our sulm.rilier may test nsmcit that this weekly will continue to rain- it stniiilaid. a the upilt mil veil uinv jit.tlfv. DECORATION DAY. Henceforth, li-giiining with May ,vth, of the pri-ctit vnr. there is added a new menu ing to the commemoration of the gmvcuof our soldiers. The garlands of Northern lllie ami Southern roses, which have Ken wrcnthul up on the graw of hoth lilue and gray, interming ling mote and mote, as time iffaccd the memo ries of civil strife, are no longer -cctimial em lileius. hut the cominoii heritage of lmth "Van kee" and "teliel," who gave up their lives in loyalty to atitiou and to state. On another uge. ate given the wolds of Henry Wnttcrsoti. who gives life to the souj. mint that another era has Kill ushered in upon our history, whin "grography is thrown into the seas." and the I'aiific no longer holds in check that offspring of our deep feeling cnmimut oration of a sist evints, which has in the jMst week not only Uett heard in our own laud, hut across the Western Ocean in the Philippines, where newly made graves have claimed some of our heroes. Kegardtessof what our opinion may lie concerning our duty In these- islands, the war which hrought these conquests perform ed its iiohlest hlessing in hinding the hearts of all Americans so clonly as has lately ken evi dent cd. If the lloatd lornting the State I'alr. lakii into iimsiiletation that rea-oii hrought forth Monday night in Judge Sha kclfonl nddrin-.. of placing this state institution In a community thut 'hows In' Its liilitest and enthusiasm, it would he willing to -uppott the same, then M.i' hall ought to win hands down. The so ph f Saline mitutv. the haulier agrlettllurnl county in the state, and for this reason entitled to oxisideraliiHi. ate as one man upon tin- suh. ject of till Pair, and would like to show the state, how such an institution would noon rival and siiras that of other tatt if plactsl in our midst. With a Democratic majority In Uith lirniK'hes of the legislntmc. ami yet the cry is made that the Ucptihticau ale iesinslhle fot the defeat of franchise taxation. This Mtty, In-cnuse it is uecr true to a lespotisihility tnkell, now has the effrontery to attempt to unload tinftil fdleil ohlignliotis n nil n minority whose voice wasnm-r Ikxileil. One who would trim the deteptinus, that must now In- loorted to in this suite to save the long dominant arty. I devoid of that Mi-somi spirit, which desires conclusive pnsif. That our miliiNid facilities would U-at once IncteaHsl if the State Pair is located here, goes almost without haying. A North ,V South Kocul, the long and much talked of one, would then lie a nwessity and a gm si i)lng Investment for any railroad magnates. The K-ople turned out mi will the day Mm shall entertained the locating committee, some of our conservative citizens had grne fir.s lust the impression should ho given, that we had loo many Idlers and loafers.
