THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD, FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1913.
THE CAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND THE CAPE COUNTY HERALD: Etvery Friday by , THE CAPE GIRARDEAU PUBLISHING COMPANY. APPLICATION FOR ENTRY AS SECOND CLASS MATTER AT THE POST OFFICE AT CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO.. PENDING. - ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE SHALL CAPE GIRARDEAU HAVE A ZOO? The suggestion made by The Tribune a few days ago to establish a zoo in,the Fairgrounds park, should the city buy that site, has been taken up by the most influential men in this city. While the plan to purchase the P'airgrounds is only in the state of in cubation, it is nevertheless time to agitate a movement to create a city zoo. Tl-ifii-n iv; nri nntprtainmpnt that surnasses a zoological f-ar.ien. It is the animals, and not the acrobatic gyrations, that make a circus fascinating. Who would not rather feed peanuts to the monkeys or elephants ihan watch men clad in tights ride dray horses? The growl of the Bengal tiger or the roar of a man-eating lion arouses more curiosity than the most skilled jugglers. And what amuses the people of St. Louis will interest them here. The 200 in Forest Park in St. Louis is the feature that makes that great preserve the most popular outing place in the metropolis of Missouri. During the summer months thousands of children gather about, the animal cages daily, and the weather is never too cold to keep the people from visiting the St. Louis zoo during the winter months. The Lincoln Park zoo in Chicago attracts more attention from visitors than the skyscraping buildings, and the great collection of wild animals ir. the Bronx of Now York City- is viewed by more people than gay Broad way. A zoo in the Fairgrounds of Cap? Girardeau would bring people to this citv who never came here before. It would advertise this city from Mem- j his to St. Louis and from the swamps the fertile stretches of Southern Illinois. A better site for a collection of wild animals could be found nowhere than the natural beauty of the Fairgrounds. Its streams are fed by springs with water as cold as those that rush down from the mountain tops. The natural advantages of the Fairgrounds excel those in beautiful Forest Park in St. Luis. With an insigniiicant expense the lagoons in the Fairgrounds could be n ado the comfortable home of rainbow trout, crappie, bass and pike. Swans, pelicans and other wildfowl would thrive in these idea! surroundings. A 7.00 in Cav.o Girardeau redid be established for a minimum cost and i; would be an attraction that wc-uld never grow old. The Tribune would ! glad to hear from uj readers, whether they favor it or not. If you have a suggestion to make, send it to the editor of The Tribune. THE CITY CO I NCI IAS REPORT. The analysis of the city water as contained in the report which th" City Council sent to the Public Service Commission at Jefferson City, is about as bail as it could possible be. Ammonia, as the analysis shows, is not du; t chemicals injected into the water for the purpose of purhcatom, but v.-a 3 t eatcd by the natural condition of the water. According to the chemist who made the report, sewage in the water i. responsible for the high percentage of ammonia. j The .Missouri Public Utilities Company is responsible for this polluted j v -a 1 a a t . a a a . ; ' at a": .. i l 1 4. V t. ! eonoition. A'0!i!.:i to me statement i..y -Mr. rowier, me water company nas which is nothing iess than a sewer, all summer. The Tribune called the pub- j slic,V,0tiiiHiojit to this, fuctj.-iajjt .summer, and had tji.e , water company' con- ; sideicd the health of this city in the slightest degree, it would have at tempted to remedy the conditions then. But it did not, and the peopie can expect no improvement in the future, unless the company is forced to act. The. Public Service Commi.-sion should have been summoned to Cape Girardeau last summer, because it is empowered to ceiApel a pubiis service corporation to be honest with the people, if th company is unwilling to be 01 its own accord. The water condition in this city must not be permitted to continue. Th: public is entitled to protection, and it looks to the city officials for it. It is a crying shame that. a prosperous community, located on the mos . valuable stream in the western hemisphere, must buy poisoned water dipped from a cesspool resting beside an almost bottomless current of pure water. The people of this city must be boon asked to give some relief. This ago, but on theory that it is betWr late thanksgiving. THE VOICE OF local afternoon paper, which The attempted to carry water -sewer water at that- terday. In a labored article, intended to convince the people that the water i., ii t as had as it seems to bo, our contemporary flopped back on the side o the Missouri Public L'tilities Company ancPagainst the people. But we extend congratulations to that muzzled journal for snapping at one of its masters at least one time. One week ago it acted as if it had grow:; a new set of tooth and might bite, but it proved no more vicious than the pup which growls furiously while hiding under a porch. Our contemporary devoted the greater part of its story in an attempt t belittle Mayor Kaire and Councilman Black for taking a stand for the people. It attempted to convince its city is not sewer water, hut it failed When a newspaper helps a law-breaking corporation to throttle the peo ple, its virtue vanishes and it becomes a menace. There is not a successful newspaper in aiiy state in the Union that panders to ihe interests and -enjoys the confidence of the people. A newspaper is somewhat like the man who holds an office of public trust. If it deserts its constituents to defend a corporation which robs the people, it sacrifices its self-respect as well as its influence. The Tribune w il' not surrender to ?ny man or institution which attempts to take an advantage of the people. Our fight on the Missouri Public Util ities Company will not terminate until that corporation has kept its promises. In keeping .w ith its policy, w e expect our evening contemporary to sup port any city officials who may turn down the people in favor of the Mis souri Public Utilities Company. The Tribune expects to oppose every official who indorses the Utilities company's service, and we should like to go before the people with the bitter opposition of our contemporary, if it is possible to make a monopoly organ bitter. BOUQUETS AND MISSOURI HISTORY. The new history of Missouri, a part of which was compiled by Walter B. Stevens, the well-known writer, is valuable to the state only in a measure. 'Ihe historical facts, as presented by Mr. Stevens, possesses actual worth, but his pen produced only two of the four volumes. Two large books are made up of biographies of men in every section of the state, including almost a hundred from Cape Girardeau County. As these "write ups" were paid for, it is . unnecessary to say that' no one was critized. The compliments paid to some of the male residents of this, state : rc almost mushv. .

CALLS WHILE WIVES ARE ALONE IN HOME Once Represented Self as Phy sician and Inquired Way to Policeman's Home. Considerable excitement has pre vailed for the past few days in the neighborhood of South Benton street between Jefferson avenue and Bloom tield street op' account of the strange fictions of a mysterious party who ap pears every evening at about 6 o'clock, and calls at the houses in that par ticular vicinity. a Three evenings in succession last week this same individual apeared at the home of Henry Ulrich, on South Benton street, and on enc occasion represented himseif to be Dr. Wil liams in order to persuade Mrs. Ul rich to come to the door. When she opened the door, the stranger mum bled incoherently in an undertone, and was still standing on the porch when Mrs. Ulrich closed and locked the door. ; On the other two occasions, he was seen passing around the house to the rear door, and when he knocked, no attention was pr.id to him and after waiting for several minutes he left. On on.? of these .occasions, however. Mr.;. Ulrich called and asked him what ho wanted, and he inouired the way to - Policeman Jeff Hutson's. This same stranger has visited on numerous occasions, the homes of Mr. Smooty, and II. P. Lund, who live in the same community. He never gives any intelligent account of him self, but never displays any tenden cies toward violence. He always makes his appearance sijCrv -ftcr dark and iust before the , , f tV-ir work He is described as being tall and slender, wears a dark overcoat, a gray cap, a while collar and red tie. While his actions have never indi cated a disposition to do harm, he is believed to be insane, and a careful watch is being maintained for him m the . hopes of effecting his capture. MRS. MARY MASTERSON, OLD RESIDENT, DIKS Mrs. Mary Masterr-on, an old resi dent of Cape County, died at St. Francis Hospital, ir. t!; city yester- Ia-v "E at 4 o'clock, after an ill- i ness of about three week?. Her death was due to typhoid fever. Mrs. Masterson was born Feb. 2'J, ioC, on a farm a few miles north of this city, and most of her life has been spent there ami in the Cape. Sometime ago she rented her prop erty in this city, and moved to Com merce, where she could be with her daughter, Miss Lucy Masterson, who is teaching Vchool in Commerce. Mrs. Masterson was the widow of William E. Masterson who died sev eral years ago. Of her immediate relatives, she ir survived by one child, Miss Lucy Masterson, and four sisters: Mrs. Em- CFt Hobbs, Mrs. W. h. Minton, an ! j Mrs. T. C.

The Tribune is in favor of the city establishing a zoo in the Fair grounds, should the Fairgrounds be purchased by thex city. We should like to have our readers ex press themselves, whether they .are in favor of a zoo or opposed to it. Write the Editor of The Tribune a letter, giving your opinion, and if you want a zoo, state what kind of animals you prefer to have in it. The suggestion made by The Tribune to establish a zoo in the Fairgrounds, should that tract of ground become thc property of the city, has met with enthusisas tic approval by the substantial business men of this city. Charles W. Stehr, the well known God Hope street mer chant, informed The. Tribune yes terday that he would personally furnish some wild animals for the zoo. "I am mighty glad the suggestion has been made," he said." It ia an excellent one, and I believe the city will get behind it. I will gladly contribute some thing to it in the way of animals. "If a zoo were to be created by this city, the town would not have to buy a single animal. They w ould all be contributed. It would be just a matter of accommodat ing ail that would be donated." William H. Bohnsack, Jr., presi dent of Bohnsack's Store, said he considered it the best . idea that had been brought forth in a long time. "I have heard a great many people discuss the plan for a zoo since The Tribune suggested it," said Mr.- Bohnsack, "and every one seems to. be enthusiastic over it. It cortainly.would be a splen did thing for the city, and would afford enjoyment to the men and women as, well a 3 the chiltiren. "A customer who was in rny store today was particularly en thused over the suggestion. He said he would contribute a bear, if the city established the ar.ima! park. The onlv cost of such a project would be the erection of suitable houses for the animals. These would be inexpensive, and the good that would result is easily worth the money. I have heard nothing but favorable com ment, and personally I should be delighted to r-ee ihe idea develop into something tangible." Prof. H. L. Roberts, instructor of Zoology in the Normal school, yesterday expressed himself as being heartily in favor, of a city zoo. "I was glad to see The Tribune take up the matter," he :;aid ycsleiilay. "It is something that we have needed badly for a long, long time. "it io 'invaluable as an educa tional feature, and I sincerely hope it will be approved by the city otTicials who are empowered to act upon it. "The Tribune's suggestion that we install every animal that lives in this section of the state, is good, but I favor a more general plan. I want the Missouri ani mals first, but we should not stop there. To make the zoo complete, we should have as many animals as we could possibly get. We should not be limited to the ani mals of any state.. "If the zoo is established, I be lieve it should contain an aquari SEN. STONE TELLS HOW HE -FREED TRUTHFUL IIORSETIIIEF He Felt it Wouldn't' Do to Keen Man Admitting Guilt Among "Innocent" Convicts. Washington, Jan 4 Senator Stone of Missouri, in commenting today on the use of thc pardoning power by Gov. Cole Blease of South Carolina, made good nse of a well-liked, if ven erably anecdote in : the following fashion: "When' I was Governor of Missouri f used to receive hundreds of letters from criminals in the state enitcn tiary, every one protesting he was in nocent, ! decided to visit the institu tion. "The first man to whom I talked was serving a two-year sentence for j horse stealing. I asked him if he stole ft - hc horse. He replied that he did. I asked him if he was guilty and his" sentence had been just. He replied in the affirmative. Then I said to him: 'It won't do. for you to remain in ; s Suggestion For w - - T 1 'F TTP Ail. A -- um, and a lagoon for swans and other waterfowl. Snakes, too, should be included. The cost of acquiring beasts, reptiles and birds would be insignificant. The zoo idea is a great proposition and nothing eould be more easily done." Dr. Paul R. Williams expressed himself similar to Prof. Roberts. "There is no attraction that ap peals more to the people than a zoo. Wherever you find a zoolog ical garden, you will always fiud a crowd of interested peopje. In cities of this size, amusements are naturally limited, and if Cape Girardeau establishes a zoo in the Fairgrounds, the city will soon find that it will not only appeal . to those who live here, but it will attract people from the surround ing neighborhoods." "If Cape Girardeau will build the houses, they will be filled without expense to the city," said John L. Miller. "If such an insti tution is established, there ought to be fish ponds. The lagoons should be re-arranged so that rain water could not flow into them. If they were fed exclusively by the springs which abound in the IV.;:-r;-;Is, gar.-.e fish could thrive in these lagoons." Judge William B. Schaefer, President of thc First National Bank, is an enthusiastic advocate of a city zoo. "It is a capital idea," he said. "The animals, which are ninety per cent of a zoo, can be obtained without any expense. There could not be a more suitable site for a zoological garden than the Fairgrounds. I hope the suggestion is adopted by the city. It would be an attrac tion that wouid bring genuine joy to .everyone, and especially the children. "I don't- suppose fhrre is any one, whether little or big, old or young, who docs not find delight i.t watching animals. Almost every large city ia the United States maintains a zoo, and 1 have never he rd of one of thm being disbanded because of lack of in terest." J. M. Allison, President of the Allison Toggery, last night lv.irdo the following statement: "Ihe Tribune's zoo suggestion interest ed me immensely. Wc h?.e bm in need of such a project for many years, and T hop" t'ie ciiy will take advantage of its oppor tunity. It is certainly a live idea and The Tribune is to b? con gratulated. "A zoo would bring people to this city that are now going else where. A zoo, as l as been stated, is a stationary circus, and nothing gets thc crowds like a circus. Capq. Girardeau is growing rapidly and is destined to become a city, a id we ought to do everything possi ble to please out" own people and to attract others here. A '00 is an advertisement and a splendid one at that." Walter D. Black, a member of the City Council, stated yesterday that he would be heartily in favor of the city establishing a zoo. "O course v,e can't take this matter up until v. e learn whether the city is going to buy the Fairgrounds. But if the city buys thc site, 1 will do all I can to help pet a zoo. A zoological garden is al ways popular and appeals to the people of all classes and all ages." this place and contaminate so many innocent souls. I will notify the War den that you are pardoned.'
