The owners of the Planters hotel in St Louis are having a hard time try ing to collect a bill of $4,470.80 left by the Taft Republicans during the early days of the late campaign when the straight-out Republicans were schenv ing to beat Governor Hadley and the Bull Moosers out of the Missouri del egation to the Chicago national con' vention. Otto Stifel, the big St Louis Republican brewer, who made none mi the bill himself, has paid $2,000 on it out of his own pocket and refuses to pay any more. The country Republicans, headed by Col, Li v Morse of Excelsior Springs, - did all the eating and most of the drinking at the hotel and then told the managers to charge the same up to some of the St Louis Republicans, When the whole bill was presented to . Mr. Stifel, the latter balked, as he had , a perfect right to do. The St Louis Republicans have had s sorry experience with Republican poKHcians outside of the city. When Cm last , 'Republican convention to " Bflminate a presidential candidate was keU there Ohio politicians left bills it tie St James hotel of some tS,000 '1 Cat were never paid, while another tacJi from the same state left at scH T rt3 at &e old LjndeU hotel and jlJtSl was never paid. When li:t2ttfct asJart ci of the riaa cfct ftrJe far iticians pleaded that the club was not incorporated, and the hotel people lost. Mr. Stifel must be pretty, weary by- this time of playing the role of angel to the Republican country politicians of Missouri. Thos. J. Niedringhaus waa former victim of the party in this way and when he wanted to be in the United States Senate, he was handed a cold potato and the prize went to Major William Warner of Kansas City who was always conven iently out of town when a committee came around his way soliciting cam paign funds. Mr. Niedringhaus fin anced the party to the extent of many thousands of dollars out of his own pocket and got nothing in return. Mr. Stifel has been doing the same and will get the same reward. Jefferson City Democrat-Tribune. It is a peculiar retribution that the negro, who was enfranchised solely to keep the Republican party in pow er, should in the end be the cause of its ruin and defeat Negro domina tion was the issue in the last Repub lican convention upon which the split occurred. And the old time Repub cans are now willing to concede the Progressive demands and eliminate the negro as the price of party union. Here we have both wings of the Re publican party coming to the position occupied by the Democratic party of the South for half a century. Henry County Democrat ' Notice. " Some time ago we asked through the columns of - this paper , for all whose accounts were due to call and settle. ; We were- surprised at .the number who respoodeiLrThe : are still some who have, art , paid so to tstm we ask them t do so t once and save the.exps ttf maZing no- ene," -U;W:KackWkrncL WE'LL NOT FORGET THIS 'TIME. While we are hustling around these days selecting presents for the wife and the kids and granddad and grand ma and Aunt Molly and Uncle Bill, let us not overlook the little kiddies just across the way for whom no one is doing any Christmas hustling. Of course money is tight and business is dull, and the crops were bad this year and it is going to push us all to have any Christmas for our own im mediate folks, but what little we have we are going to enjoy, and we can't really enjoy that greatest of all days if we know some poor little tot just about the age of our Johnny or Mary is going to wake up on Christmas morning to find that Old Kris Kringle j has 'overlooked the forlorn little stocking. We're pretty good kind of folks down here in Bates county. We like our neighbors and when they get sick or are unfortunate and fall behind in their work we jump in and help 'em out and are glad to do it We take care of what few paupers we have android up our end in pretty good shape, but say, didn't we for get that little tow-headed son-of-a-gun down the road last year? Believe we did, and I'll bet the poor little ras cal has been wondering ever since just what he had done to get Old Santa sore on him. But we ain't go ing to forget him this year. . 'Course we're pretty hard run, but we're go ing to see that he gets a visit from the old chap this time even if we do have to cut the pie out of our Christmas dinner and pass up mat ten cent cigar we've been blowing ourselves to once a year. fi" The Abilene Plan. , Abilene, Kas., has had a commis sion form of government for the last three or four years. While the nov elty lasted the Commissioners attend ed to their duties assiduously, but af ter a while they perceived that if they attended strictly -to their duties as Commissioners they would have to neglect their own business, and the salaries would not warrant that They decided that it would not be neces sary to poke into everything and stand over everything relating to the management of the town if they could find one good man who would give all his time to the business of managing. They therefore pooled their salaries, hired a comoetent en gineer to take care of the municipal plant and let him run it The plan has worked well and the people like it. Abilene is only a little -town and the extreme simplicity of the form of government which it has attained may not be desirable or even possi ble in larger places, but there is an idea or two behind its government "which apply everywhere! One -of these Abilene ideas is the centraliza tion of administrative power so that no department of the government wc-rks at cross purposes with anoth er. Abilene 's Street Commissioner will not lay pavements for the Water Commissioner to rip up. Abilene has also come to the sensible conclu sion that public work is largely work for an expert rather than for a poli tician. There are many America it com munities which have not caught the idea yet But they will. Republic. May Popularize Auctions of Real Estate Here Col. C. E.
