THE MAN FOR THE PLACE.
In the making of a choice of
a Governor for Missouri, and the
time is not far' off, there are many
things to be considered, but of all
the most important qualifications
are honesty, intelligence, ability,
and a technical, first hand knowl
edge of the affairs of the State.
The intelligent voter, the- citif en
with the best interests of his State
at heart will not now, of all times,
allow the issue to be clouded with
fantastic schemes and promises.
Neither is it a time for experiment
merely to gratify the ambition of
any man, no matter how success
ful or wealthy whose fitness for
gubernatorial service is an un-,
known quantity.
All the Democratic "aspirants
for governor have the first two
qualifications of honesty and in
telligence; several of them are in
disputably able gentlemen ; but,
jn the matter of the fcitiowledge of
the State '8 affairs, one man, the
present Secretary of State, stands
out as one with probably a "more
intimate knowledge of the details
of the State government and the
needs of the State, than any man
in public life.
The service he has rendered the
State is a model of honesty, effi
ciency, economy and intelligence.
He has proved his qualifications
to make good as chief executive,
lie is known all over the State,
and his fitness is unquestioned
and Missouri needs his technical
knowledge and his services. He
has not had the experience that
would recommend him as ' presi
dent of a manufacturing business,
but he is notably and indisputably
equipped by training, nature, and
inclination' to make . the kind of
public .servant Missouri needs as
governor. Voters should . and
will be reluctant to reject the em
ployment of a man whose experi
enee'and training are what the
State) needs, rather than the elevar
tion of the wealthy .and inexperi
: eneed in public service. The kind
of statecraft he possesses should
be at the service of the State.' ilf
- any man is better fitted than Cor
nelras Roach to give to Missouri
a conservative, efficient busi
ness like administration then that
maa should be chosen. The State's
'welfare should outweigh all other
J consideration, r . . ;.

islation, tariff hesitancy and oth
er things, lacked the 'match' to
kindle or set things off. . Big bus
iness opportunities kept accumu
lating. Along came war orders in
ate 1914 and early 1915 (follow
ing better railroad sentiment and
the federal reserve banking act),
and served as the match for the
onflagration, which' was already
waiting. And having served its
purpose, the match is practically
consumed. Today it plays . no
more part in the great materials
consuming conflagration of indus
trial prosperity in this country
than does the starting match play
ii: a huge and growing fire that
has been burning over a year.
War business? We can forget

Col. Porter, Breeder of Fine Live
Stock.
Col. J. Harlan Porter of West
ern Bates, was a Butler visitor
Saturday and as is his custom
called at the Times" office. He
told the editor that on Tuesday he
received an extra well bred Ches
ter White gilt from the Thos. F.
Kent herd of Walnut, Iowa. She
is sired by "Iowa Progress" a ret
served son of "Combination" the
greatest living Chester White
boar. Her dam is "Iowa Lucile"
she by "Iowa Protection." She
is bred to "White Elephant" a
son of "Sweepstake" that fam
ous 1260 pound hog that won
champion at Des Moines, Iowa, in
1912.
With the breeding behind this
gilt and the hog she is bred to
Col. Porter certainly has the foun
dation for a herd of big time Ches
ter White hogs and with- the
surplus in ilk the big Holstein
Friesian cows, which he recently
purchased in Kansas, are furnish
ing at the Rambler farm there
should be some good show pigs for
the Butler fair this year.
When Col. Porter goes in for a
thing he goes for all he is worth,
He had the finest chickens in
Western Bates, then he went over
to Kansas and bought some fine
cows, and now he has embarked in
the hog business.

cently he equaled the world s rec
ord for the 120-yard high hurdle
race at the Penn Relay Games at
