I like to see a niiiti proud of th" plaee in which lie lives. 1 like to see a man who lives i:i u so that his place will be proud of him. Bo honest, but hate no one; overturn a man's wrong doing but do not iverturn him unless it must be do:v in overturning the wrong. Stand with a man that stands right; stand with him while he is right and part with him when he goes wrong. Abraham Lincoln. STARTING DOWN THE PROrER ROAD. The report of Secretary Hinchey to tho Commercial club last night was Idled with good suggestions. His recommendations and the favorable ac tion taken upon them by the club is the answer to the question: Why does Cape Girardeau grow? A commercial organization like the Cape Girardeau club must neces sarily depend upon its secretary to steer the body right and map out the road down which the club must travel. Mr. Hinchey's report shows that he first decides what should be done and then goes ahead. It is quite evident that the Commercial club's secre tary studied the subjects before he discussed them last night. He knew what he was talking about and the members of the organization who heard him, know that what he asked for should be granted. His argument in favor of establishing a market in this city was convinc ing, and the fact that a committee was appointed to investigate the propo sition and report back to the club, is evidence enough that Mr. Hinchey con vinced the Commercial club that this city ought to have a market. The Tribune holds the same view that Mr. Hinchey does. If the farmer knew that he would have a sale for his produce by bringing it to this city, wg are satisfied that it would be delivered here. But at present he does not have this assurance. To haul a load of edibles from the farm to the Cape and then be compelled to peddle them to the consumers is a task that loes not encourage the farmer. And that is why Cape Girardeau does not jret as many fresh eggs, hickory-cured ham, and good butter as it should. If the business men will help the farmer they may rest assured that he will help them, and by each helping the other, they will automatically aid Cape Girardeau to grow. And that is the aim of the Commercial club. STEADY. NOW. STEADY! The following appeal to the business man, which was received yesterday by .Mr. Philip A. Hoch from a large manufacturing house, preaches a splend'd truth. It illuminates the opportunity that has come to this coun try .i t of the struggle which is shattering all Europe. The Tribune take pleasure in reproducing the message: We are one hundred million people occupying prolific and wonder fully endowed territory on earth. In this great crisis we are destined to he the balance wheel of civilization, the reciprocating parts in the machinery of reorganization which must follow after the clash of arms !h milled. Never was a great nation better prepared to take full advantage of the opportunity thuH offered. In our vast confines are contained all the p4f ntial.4 of life in greater abundance than ever before. While the armies of Europe are tramping the grain fields and destroying the avenues of distribution our husbandmen are gathering vast crops and the machinery for their conservation is intact. While the old world is burning million of treasure daily, we are ac cumulating and adding to our store. While the finances of the Euro pean powers are crumbling into charts, ours were never belter or on a more sure foundation. From the four points of the compass u HI come a cry for our food and our manufactured products of ev ery kind. Of all the nations we will have in the greatest abundance ' h" necessities for rehabilitation. I.il us have no fear of impending diattr or fee! uncertain as to our future hut attend to our hii-ine. linn in t h- knowledge that of all tin- nii.ole on earth we are the inot fuwit iMv situated, and that it is our destiny ! be lb" leuilinu lorcc of the world in commerce and till; in -s.

It would make this , ;i; C f ading post for all the people in the wh .! o.itheiist.

At present it is just as o vn '. i t for a fanner living in one of the lower counties to go to St. Louis s ii is to come to Cape Girardeau. If they liiust drive to a railroad point, then board a train and later change to another line, many believe they ay as well shop in Chicago or St. Louis. And those who do not care to make these long journeys, read some mail order catalogue and do their buying from pictures. The merchants of Cape Girar d i ought to get all of the business from this section that is going elsow: jo. Vit'.i ai i-.terurhan line, this city would be to Southeast Mi-soari what Chicago is to Illinois. Briefly, it would put the Cape in long pant;. THE WHITE WAY. was granted its franchise and which must be done without any more de lays. The company is entitled to u fair chance with the peopfe. It has received this and more. !f it continues the work it hus begun, tho people will bo willing to furtive it for its past dereliction, but if it falls back in its old rut of maki'ig promises nnd then breaking them, it will not be able to sneak by as it has for two years. The Missouri Public Utilities Company's light and power are good enough, its "White Way" is excellent, but its water and gas are abominable. When the company brings the water and gas up to the standard of its elec tricity and "White Way" and then takes over the street car line, as it agreed to do, it will have kept its contract with the people. And until it carries out the promises it made to Cape Girardeau in return for a valuable franchise, the Missouri Public Utilities Company will remain under suspicion. THE PEOPLE'S WISHES IGNORED. Aim st three months have elapsed since Mayor Kage asked the City Council take up the question of removing the city garbage, and appointed a committee to ascertain the cost, etc., and then report back to the Council. That was the last of it. There has been no report and if there has been an investigation made, the results have been suppressed. The Mayor has recommended a scheme to remove the garbage, the Coun cilmen have expressed themselves favorably regarding it and the people have spoken through the Civic Improvement Association, which has urged the city to act. Why has this important matter been ignored? There is no answer save neglect, and there is rio excuse for a public official to neglect the people. There is no city the size of Cape Girardeau anywhere that permits its re fuse to decay in back yards, in alleys and on the street corners. Anyone with common sense knows it breeds disease and is a constant menace to the city's health. The story told by the Arkansas Traveler is peculiarly applicable to the attitude of the City officials just now. The Arkansan, who lived in an unroofed hut, said he couldn't cover it when the rain was falling and when the sun shone, he didn't need it. The City Councilmen, who are holding up action on the garbage question, apparently were too busy during the summer to take up a progressive measure, and now that autumn will soon be here, they are patiently waiting for our swill to freeze. That may be one way of disposing of a problem of immense interest to the people, but it will never do for a platform upon which they may stand and be re-elected. . Cape Girardeau needs lawmakers as progressive as the business men who are advertising this city all over the union. Men who kill measures that would advance the city's general welfare are a handicap to the men who do things in Cape Girardeau. The bill to inspect the dairies should have been passed and there can be no legitimate excuse for its failure. A city of Capo Girardeau's propor tions should be willing to do more than improve streets. The people of this town are in favor of progressive legislation and they will demonstrate that fact at the spring election. evening was pleasantly ( spent with music, games nnd two contests, both of which were won by Glenn HenU, Judge Hays today purchased the II.
