At Butler on Saturday, August 27th
at 2 p.m. J. A. DkArmond,
J. W. Jamison, Chairman.
Bro. Austin makes a Rood presid
ing officer. Bro. Funk seems to have
been without the breastworks.
The tact that Mr. Walbridge, the
llepublican nominee lor governor, is
being supported by Ed. Butler and
the boodllng element ol St. Louis, is
proof enough that he is not the right
nan (or governor o! the state.
The Chicago Tribune, Republican,
ays that for each boodler vote the
Republican nominee tor governor
gains, Folk will gain ten ballots from
honest Republicans who have hereto
fore voted the straight Republican
In times of war it sometimes be
comes necesary to draft the private
soldier, but whoever heard of .lt being
necessary to run a draft for officers.
- The Republican county convention
-found it necessary last Saturday to
raft nearly everr candidate.
The Democratic state campaign
will ha opened in Springfield on
September 1st. Sedalia and the
World's Fair both made a bid for it,
bat the Democratic managers didn't
want to hold the opening where any
Democrat would be compelled to pay
-an admission fee.
If it is true, as some Republican
opponents of Mr. Walbridge . say,
that boodllng was in flagrant prac
tice in the St. Louis city council when
Mr. Walbridire was mayor of that
city, there is some added . light on
Ed. Butler's enthusiastic reference
to the former mayor as "a good man
for governor." Kansas City Star,
It is recognize by all thinking men
that when one 6tarts in to ask ques
tions, not with a view of gaining
liirht on a mooted subject, but for
the purpose of creating trouble and
confusing the publis mind, that to
Attempt answers to all such ques
tions would be ridiculous. Bro.
Funk has adopted such a policy in
bis warfare npon ocr county officers.
- He is not seeking truth but trying to
create distrust in the minds, of the
public, no matter -how honest and
. -efficient the officer may be. ;. '
The Republican-Press is insisting

If further evidence was required to
convince the American people that
they have a war man f jr president,
developments in. the last few days In ;
our relations with foreign nations
have furnished it. From a profound
trail nations, only a week's
tisso Is noce;cary to mrolve us In f
heated Imbroglio with five nations,
vis: Turkey, Yeue.oela, San Domin
go, Columbia, Russia. All of these,
except the last named, are small na
tions and of course don't want a
scrap with a powerful country like
our own, and Russia right now bos
her hands full and would evidently
prefer closing op those troubles be
fore assuming any more.
A 'diplomatic controvereey was
being conducted In Turkey, the same
as had been going on with the "Sick
Man of the East," since the founding
of this government. There are no
more reason for harsh measures now
than there hasilways been, but our
War President has concluded .to
brandish his "big stick" over the
Sultan's head in a threatening man
ner. War ships have been ordered
to Smyrna, in Asiatic Turkey, and
if the presence of these sea dogs are
not convincing to the Sultan that
Teddy Is not bluffing, why the port
of Smyrna will be seized and a few
shots fired "iuat to show," and then,
what of the echo? War ships havel
" d
alio been ordered to San Domingo,
where some trade complications have
arisen and a like measure is contem
plated for Venezuela, where an
American Trust has some asphalt
concessions that are In danger of
being confiscated by the government
because of a dispute with the com
pany, it onr government would
adopt more stringent measure in
dealing with trusts at home the peo
ple would profit thereby. Russia
seized a British ship carrying Ameri
can products to Japan, and con
demned the cargo as contrabands of
war, clearly acting In her rights as
a nation at war with Japan, when
Teddy makes a pre-emptory demand
for damages and an apology. No
man need be surprised to find glar
ing headlines in his morning 'paper
announcing that Teddy the Bold
had Involved this nation in war with
one of the world powers. Firmness
and boldness has always been aid
must continue to be the attitude of
our chief executive in dealing with
other nations, but they have rights
which we are bound to respect, and
the fellow who goes around with a
chip on his shoulder is sure to gat
the quarrel he seeks.
It now leaks out that the Morton
Jourdan home rule plank, which the
Democratic convention turned down,
and about which action the Republi
can press has so much to say, was
presented to the resolution commit
tee of the Republican state conven
tion at St.. Joseph, and burld in that
committee. The resolution as writ
ten by Mr. .Jourdan provided that
"cities should not be ruled as sub
ject provinces" and the governor
should not have the right by "con
firmation, veto or appointment;"
which, if adopted, would take away
state supervision of any kind from
the police officials. Both parties
recognize the importance of state
supervision over police, election and
excise officials. The evils lie in the
abuse and not In the law as at pres
ent constructed.
The Post-Dispatch continues Its
tirade of abuse against Hon. Sam
B. Cook, growing more violent as
defeat after defeat Is heaped npon it
and It sees that Mr. Cook will as cer
tainty be elected with a big majority
as he lives until Noventber, says the
Moberly Democrat. V Let all keep In
mind the cause of that paper's ani
mosity to. Cook. .. . It was . Sam B.
Cook who showed that journal up
as the biggest tax dodger in Mis
souri- It now knows that with Sam
Cook elected it will have to pay tax
on a proper assessment. v:

Groton, Mass., Aug. 7.-"-George 8.
Boutwell, one of the founders, of the
Republican party, Secretary. of the
Treasury under President Grant,
Governor, United States Senator
and Representative in Congress from
his State, Is tor Judge Parker for
President. He gave these reasons
yesterday for his preference:
"I am with the Democratic patty
because I have made a distinct de
cision in regard to the Philippine
policy, and whatever may happen In
regard to domestic affairs, nothing
can be so unfortunate as this trans
formation from a republic to an

Declare for Parker and Davis.
Parkersburg, W. Va., Aug. 7.
Asbury Haraons of Ripley, W. Va.,
Republican nominee for judge of the
circuit court of the Fifth district,
has declared tor Parker and Davis,
and John S. Farr, of Huntington, a
nominee tor Presidential elector, has
withdrawn from the ticket and sent
his resignation to the state central
committee. He gives as his reason
that he cannot conscientiously vote
for the persons on the Republican
ticket this year and that he does not
agree with the principles and plat
form ot the party In .West Virginia.
Clark's Estimates.
Congressman Champ Clark gives
out the following as the states Judge
Parker will carry:

As doubtful he quotes:

This certainly looks good to us
and we believe Mr. Clark has the
situation sized up just about right.
8 Drowned While Bathing. '
. Alton, 111 , Aug. 8. Michael Riley,
his daughter and six of the latter's
little girl friends were drowned while
bathing in the Mississippi river to
night. One child who was in the
party was rescued. ...
Riley lived near the river, In the
southern part of the city, and was
accustomed to bathe In front of his
home after his return from work.
To-night his little daughter begged
to go with him, and Riley -took her
and seven cf her little girl friends ta
the beach'with him.
, When they entered the water Riley
bade the children )oin hands, and
they all waded into the fiver '' and
walked, along a sandbar which
stretched out Into the stream - at
that point. They had gone some
distance from the shore, when sud
denly the whole party disappeared
beneath the water, having in the
darkness stepped from the sandbar
into the deep channel.
l. The children struggled and scream
ed, fighting desperately to reach1 the
sandbar, where the water, was only a
foot or so In depth. ' Riley, who is
said to have been a good swimmer)
is thought to have been made help
less by the girls clinging to fafm and
hampering his efforts to '.save -them

Puts Folk Majority at 75,000.
Ed. T. Orear, ot Sweet Springe, for
mer ttate superintendent of insur
ance, was at tne uammore, says
the Kansas City Times. Mr. Orear
predicted that Folk's majority would
be 75,000. He said:
"Tho Democratic party has given
the voters an exceptionally strong
ticket, on a platform that must ap
peal strongly to every honest man.
I know many Republicans who will
vote for Mr. Folk on the Issue he rep
resents. Mr. Walbridge may be a
good business man, but his candi
dacy tor governor at this time will
notget the independent vote, northe
Republican farmer who carefully
studies the situation. I understand
Mr. Walbridge is president ol the Bell
Telephone company, one ot the big
corporations that Cardwell said had
tried to influence legislation, and I
am told also that he is a large stock
holder in the Butler garbage reduc
tion works of St. Louis. I think Mr.
Walbridge a weak candidate."
