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

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.

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.
