COLUMBIA, MISSOURI, SUNDAY, APRIL 28, 1912.
This Is the Helici ofT. R. K.
Ely, Former State Sena
tor, M. I". Ahuiifiiis.
LEGISLATIVE IS OPPOSED
Says the Town Owes :i Duty
to Fathers and Mothers
of the State.
"If there is any town in Missouri
that should bo free oi" saloons, it is
the town in which our State Cniver
gity is located."
This statement made yesterday by
former state senator from Dunklin
County, T. It. It. Ely, who is visiting
his daughter. Mrs. II. I!. Pankey of
1322 Keiser avenue. Mr. Ely's
home is in Kennett. .Mo. He was
discussing the local option quest ion
"I am strongly in favor of local
option and hope and believe that Co
lumbia will remain a local option
city,'" Senator Kly said. "This is
the place where most our boys go to
fit thenii-elves for their life work and
it is not fair to the fathers of these
boys to send their sons to a town
which is wide open when in many
rases, their own homes are local
"I do not, as a rule, bother in the
affairs of other counties or towns
where tlie local option question is be
fore the people of that county or
town, for it is an affair of their own
which they must decide, lint in the
rase of Columbia, every citizen in
Missouri should be interested in this
question, it does not effect alone the
people in the county, but it affects
the entire state.
All Have an Interest.
"The University is a part of our
property, we are all shareholders, and
the conditions of the town in which
the I'niversity is located, has a direct
effect upon us through our children
who are students of this school. It
however, is not so much the fathers
who will be affected by local option,
but it is the children themselves.
"One of the strongest arguments
In favor of rebuilding the I'niversity
in Columbia after it was destroyed
by tire in 1S92, was that Columbia
was to be a dry town. The Pem
berton" Hill which was passed by the
legislature about live years ago,
a bill prohibiting the sale of intoxi
cating liquor within five miles of Co
lumbia, showed the sentiments of the
legislature in regard to this question.
As the legislative body appropriates
the' fuuds for the maintenance of the
University, it seems to me that it
would be very bad judgment on the
jiart of the citizens of Columbia to
vote in favor of saloons.
Senator Ely made it very plain
that he didn't put any faith in the
argument for revenue.
In His Own Town.
"I live in a town where there
were- five saloons," he said, "and
when we voted on this question,
there were people who said that rent
would go down, that we would be
without the revenue and there would
be no more brick buildings. But
the town is in better shape than it
ever was, more buildings have been
built since the election than before,
and the country around us is in a
far better shape. Where did the
money go that was taken from the
revenue? It was used in improving
the homes and the town."
Senator Ely was a member of the
legislature at the time the Pember
ton Bill was introduced and was a
strong advocate of the bill. He said
that at the time it was up for passage
Jliey knew there was a Haw in the
constitutionality of the bill, but as it
was so late in the session they did
not introduce an amendment but
Jassd the bill more to show the
sentiments of the legislature than to
znake it a law.
Senator Ely is a graduate of the
rniversity of Missouri in the law
dass of 1SS1.

OLD STATE CAPITOL
NOT TO HPAIRED
Supreme Court Refuses to
(KK) on Present Building.
COMMISSION OPPOSED IT
Legislature Probably Will
Have to Rent a Hall for Its
The refusal of the Supreme Court
of .Missouri this week to issue a writ
or mandamus to compel the making
of a $72,000 repair on the old capitol
means that the building probably
will be torn down this summer be
fore work begins on the new cap
itol. according to E. W. Stephens.
The last legislature appropriated
$72,000 to repair the present cap
itol so it could be used until the new
capitol was finished. A majority of
the members of the Commission of
Permanent Seat of Government was
opposed to paying any money for re
pairs on the old building. The gov
ernor and the state treasurer, who
are members of the commis-ion,
were in favor of spending the money
that bad been appropriated for the
This minority of the commission
of Permanent Seat of Government
had a petition filed with the Su
preme Court asking that the court
issue a mandamus to compel the
expenditure of the money that had
been voted for repair. The court re
fused to issue the mandamus or
even an alternative writ which would
provide that evidence be presented
by both sides and the question be
decided from it.
The state attorney-general, sec
retary of state and the state audi
tor, as members of the Commission
of Permanent Seat of Government,
opposed having the old capitol re
paired, because they said the $72,000
was to be used in case the proposi
tion for tlie new capitol hail been
"The capitol commission was also
opposed to repairing the old build
ing, b. . Stephens said this
morning. "We did not think it was
tin- practical thing to do There was
also a possibility that the old build
ing would be on ground where part
of the new capitol would have to be
built. We thought it should be out
of the way before the other building
W3s begun. As the question has been
decided, we expect that the old cap
itol will be torn down this summer.
"When the old building is torn
down it will leave the legislature
without a place to meet. Jefferson
City needs an armory so we suggest
ed that one be built at once which
will be for permanent use to the
city anil can also be used by the leg
islature until their new meeting
place will be finished at the capitol.
If an armony is not built, the leg
islature can rent a hall to meet in."
Applications for the contract to
build the new state capitol will be
received until May 15. On June 1
the commission will begin the work
of going over the applications and
will chose the builder as soon as pos
sible. "Three applications have been
made so far." Mr. Stephens said.
"We do not expect that there will be
a large number."
