It will be of interest toMissouriars, w ho have for some time endured a lobster organ's palpably slanderous cries of Democratic fraud, to observe just what a chaste- Republican ad ministration will do when it has free and uninterrupted Bway which it has iti Philadelphia. The outside world 1ms long been convinced thut Philadelphia present ed a specimen of ring rule scarce) v rivaled in the annals of corruption. Commenting upon the frauds in last week's election the Now York Evening Post says: Iu 1900 McKmly reci ived 1,738 votes iu the Third Ward. This is a quarter of tin? city where the nonula tion uiujiuishes year by year, rathf r thau increases, yet the returns gave -L'emiypncker .i.o jt) vote, more than double the number received by Ale. Kiuley two years before. In the Fifth Ward, which is also oue of sta tionary population. McKinlty receiv ed 1.0G7 votes iu H00. wliile Pcntiv packer is credited with 5,170 this year. The total vote in these two wards in 1900 wns 5,470. The total vote as given this year is 9,500, an increase of more than 4,000 Such unblushing frauds speak for them selves. fni T-i .1 t. . iuese nepuoncan "gams wen- made without anv Democratic loasc: in fact the Democratic vote was stronger than at the last Presidential election. Philadelphia papers say that 110 effort is made at conceal ment, but that fraud is the open boast of Republicans,. The total of fraudulent votes is placed at eighty thousand by a Pennsylvania Repuo lican paper. To enrich the gang at the expense of government is the leading princi ple of the Philadelphia ring.' Laws are pervrted, everything available ia subsidized, franchises and favors are sold at fixed rates. One or two characteristic instances, moreT particularly resembling the deeds of the n-cent St. Louis boodle gangs, serve to illustrate the ring's cha a?ter. These are but a few of the instance openly discussed by Philadelphia citizens. John Waua maker is said to have offered to pny two million dollars in-i to the city treasury for the use of the city in consideration of a certain street railwaj franchise; bnt theine lawmakers declined hi, Btraightfor- j ward proposal utid aubequtntly manuf nturers, while wholly omitti: g granted the identical frauchise to others and pursue the like discrini parties, free of any charge whatever inating course towards ordinary orauy benefit to the city, j sellers of vinous liquors, so that, Not long ago a large manufacturer 'should the contention of the state be discovered that his goods were lieing ( correct, that the act being in vetti imitate! and a spurious art it If sold gated ia only a police regulation, to the public. The crime was traced' still, even under that view, tin act to a policy -shop keeper whom the stauda condemned for it lack of uni police refused to proseeut because-, . fonnity. Tlie state undertakes by theysaid.h was the biggi st '"he ! er" in his ward. But they tid prose cute an innocent man who, for n con sideration, agreed to stand triHl for t bet rime au i lake whatev(r'Uiet:te hhould U jiiveu hiin. At the trial the policy-shop man appeared as chief witness for the State. K lias not U-en a great while since a wealthy I'hiladelphian's handsome silk lined overcoat was stolen at, a ball. The offender in this case prov ed to be a city magistrate. One by one six other magistrates were re quested to issue a warrant churning him with the theft. They stood by him to a man, refusing the warrant; and the 'incident was closed. ' Ticis is the sort of Republics, ism that has triumphed in Pennsylvania. Holier than thou" Republican may obreive w lint their brethreu ure do ing while the local gang oran can console iiMlf with the fact that, though defeated in St. Louis, the hood!" machine is thiivitigelseivhere. -St. Lou!'.

Even the stamps issued pursuant to this act and signed by the state treasurer eon'iri'i this view, ior on them in printed: "Act approved April 17, 1901, taxing distilled liquors ten cents per gallon."

We, therefore, are of the opinion thut the act in question. violating as it does, the rule of uniformity preserved by the tjnsti tdtion, it is altogether invalid.
