PENDING. ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK. The financial statement of the First National Bank, which appears else where in this issue, shos that institution has done remarkably well since it emerged from the cloud that engulfed it less than one year ago. In crossing a stream on a bridge, few pause to consider the carpenter who built it, and people are apt to think slightingly of the men who pilot a great business insti tution over a crisis, but they are nevertheless entitled to credit. The First National Bank survived calamity that few similar institu tions would have weathered. Honest, capable and hard-working men did it. By generous contributions they literally saved the bank. In eight months they have won back a blighted reputation, and made the institution a pillar in the world of finance. In just a few days there is to be an election of officers in this bank. Wc have no idea what the plans of the stockholders are, of course, but we believe the President of that bank has well earned at least another term. William B. Schaefer is surrounded by men who have faith in him and upon whom he can at all times rely. Abraham Lincoln spoke with characteristic wis dom when he said: "Never change horses while crossing a stream," and the truth of that adage holds good today. The First National Bank could do no better than to re-elect every man who was its friend when friends were few and needed most. SAVE THE COMMON PLEAS COURT. Senator Hawkins, in his letter to The Tribune, takes the proper at titude when he says he will oppose the plan to abolish the Common Pleas Court. The judges of that tribunal and the Circuit Court have as much as they can do to dispose of the cases that come before them under present con ditions. To abolish one and load its work on the other would be to compel the judge to undertake a task that he could not handle. Courts are one of the most important parts of the state and government. To thrust obstacles in their way would mean to retard justice, and that would be nothing more or less than to tear down one of the fundamental principles of our government. If the judge of the Common Pleas Court of ihis city had nothing to do, the question of abolishing that institution would be in order. But he has work, plenty of it, and the Circuit Court has as much as one judge can do. The men who would obliterate the Court over which Judire lianney pre sides are penn wise and pound foolish. It may save the state money in the beginning, but at a tremendous sacrifice to the people. And in the end 'here would be nothing gained for the state. It is absurd to contend that the Circuit Court in this district could, handle all of the cases that now come before both judges. What would be the result? We would be confronted with the same condition that we now are in the Supreme Court. Thoe jurists were called upon to do more than they were able to accomplish, and the inevitable happened. The court fell so fa" behind with its docket that a special commission had to be appointed to relieve the congested condition. Why should Cape Girardeau and this important section of Missouri be handicapped? There is no excuse for it. The recommendation is not in keeping with the spirit that prevails in this part of the state. It is a step backward, and if taken, the people must be inconvc nienced while they wail for a decadent set of lawmakers to recognize their blunder and repent. The peopie of this city and county should register a protest before i is too late. Senator Hawkins will do ail he can, but he should be backed UJfei those who are 'intimutcsyacquainted with the work of the Commor Pleas Court. CAPE GIRARDEAU TO THE FRONT. By M. A. Dempsey. All over the United States today there is a strtng and an enlightened fentiment in reference to improving conditions. Beauty and surroundings, y.initary environment ami everything that goes to make existence healthful and uplifting is being sought for by those who are responsible for the well being of the people. Kansas City has appropriated many thousands of dollars in boulevards, parkways and public institutions; St. Louis is in line with its new scheme of spending millions of dollars in beautifying the business districts of the city: Chicago has been working for years to make Grant park and its lake front a place of beauty. 'M e Frisco Railroad is investing a substantial amount of money on the river front in preparing to build a modern and adequate depot. Is the city deing its part in preparing for new conditions? Everybody knows how Main street is cut off from access to the South. Formerly the need of a broad thoroughfare was not very necessary. Looking into the future, the situation is absolutely different. If one looked at the plans and specifications for improvements he would immediately seie the absolute necessity of widening and extending Main street. The City Council has hael the matter under consideration in variou. forms for three years. No results are apparent. Something should be done by the Council to elisposc of this very important matter. If the Council is of the opinion that the improvements should not be made, it should so state, and give its reasons to the people. If it thinks the improvements should be made, it should immediately vitiate the procecdure required to carry out its ideas by the methods providoei by law. This method and the only practicable one under the existing circum stances, is to prepare under direction of the Mayor and Council a petition for condemnation of the property sought to be taken for street imp ro ve neris. The damages to be assessed by the jury and to be assessed anci paid by a distric t as outlined by the ordinance of the --City Council. The city interests and the people at large demand that this be don The city tuTicia's will be recreant to their dut- if they do not make an honost effort to curry out the wishes of their constituents. LET US HAVE The youthful inspector, who was sent here yesterday as the agent. of the Fublic Service Commission to look after the wants of the people, soon dis covered that he was among friends when at the office of the Missouri Fublic Utilities Company. He was virtually the guest of the officials of that or ganization, and from every appearance he had a real nice time. He was anxious last night to explain to The "Tribune that the people of Cape Girardeau should be lenient with the local Public Utilities Company. He shuddered at the suggestion of building an intake tower at Cape Rock, because it would. work a hardship upon the company. A p,-ess agent for the Missouri Public Utilities Company could not have ;riven a more favorable interview for the utilities company than this youth ful expert furnished The Tribune, after the close of his investigation. Presielent Wurelatk of the Light and Development Company, which owns the Missouri Public Utilities Company, wrote a letter to the Missouri Public Service Commission, asking those state officials to send a representative hefre either the li or 12th of this month. Councilman Black requested the Public Service Commission to send a roan here two weeks a 550. The man came on the day named by the Missouri Public Utilities Company, which is on trial. It is not necessary for the neoDle of this city to drink polluted water or burn gas that is six parts wind just because a representative of the Public Service Commission ordered them to. The Missouri Public Utilities Company most reoort to the people of this city. They awarded the franchise and they can revoke it if the corporation repudiates ils agreements. . j -ThcCitv Council can inforce e&ry clause in that contract, and the people ; nust look to the City Council for relief. If the city official accept the recom- ; rMcndations of the vouth who came here from Jefferson City and found that i the officials of the Missouri Puhlic Utilities Company were oV, time acquaint- '; RKri, then contend that the ynurg man ourbt to make ene mrc trip and ! prescribe' a few wet nurses and some rattles. SOME ACTION. ORL CLAP IN . t MAN'S CLOTHING HELD AT ILLMO DeputySheriff Wilson Catch " es East St. Louis Lassie Dressed as HolTo. HAD BUMMED WAY TO ARKANSAS AND BACK Young Woman Made to Bathe by Official, Dons Dress and Returns Home. Miss Bessie Hardin, 23 years old, a pretty blonde, was arrested in Illmo early yesterday morning, disguiseel as a man. She was found in the Cotton Belt railroad yard by J. H. WiLson, a eleputy sheriff, upon her arrival from Newport, Ark., in a box car. She left her home at 917 Market street, East St. Louis, two weeks ago, after'- deciding that a man's lot was more pleasant than the emiet exist ence of a woman. "I read so much of the hobos," she told the deputy sheriff, "and I imagin ed that it was an ideal life to travel over the country,stopping everywhere. I knew a real hobo that rode in box cars and slept in sheds and stables must be a man, so 1 decided to play that I was one. "I got two suits from my brother's trunk. After putting on one, I bundled up the other and carried it under my arm. I wore a handkerchief abfiut n;y nock and an old slouch hat, which h:d my long hair. "I left my hom- in East St. Louis just one week before Christmas. It was early in the evening when I crept into theTreight yards, looking for a box car to enter. I wandered, up and down the long strings o" passenger and freight cars, and finally found ar freight that was open. I climbed in and waited for it to start. I didn't know where the train was destined or when it would leave. "I had fallen asleep, but was awak ened suddenly by a lurch of the car. Then I realized that the train was : ieaving. I was'a iu:ie airam ior v. ! few minutes, but as I had $5 in my pocket, I knew that I could get back to East St. Louis, if I didn't like my experience after the first.night. ! "The coach was very cold and after I it left the city it. grew colder. To make myself comfortable, I put on thex?xtra suit of clothing, and then fell asleep. When I awakened the next morning, the train was standing in some town. I didn't know where we were, but 1 : suppose it was Arkansas. "During the afternoon I. became very hungry and decided I would climb off and get something to eat. I suc ceeded in alighting at the next station without being detected. I found a restaurant and while eating I was told ; that the t.von was Newport, Ark. "That day I met Harris E. Turner, whom I knew in East St. Louis. Hc I said he had been working in a town below Newport, but had lost his posi tion. He came to Newport, looking for some work. He asked me why I was masquerading as a man and I told him the story of my trip. So we decided to stay together. He was anxious to ge: back home, and I had been convinced that a hobo's life in the winter time was not as pleasant as I had believed it to be. He loi-ned me an extra coat that night because the night was very cold. "He had no money and he said the small amount that I possessed would not last both of us very long, so he suggested that we beg. He kept on one street and I remained on another, but we diet not wander far away from each other. But we just got enough to buy our meals and pay for our lodg ing night after night. "The people of Newport held a great celebration New Year's Eve and it made me want to be at home. And I tried hard to collect enough money to pay for our trip, but failed. "We continued begging day after day, but could not get anything ahead, so wc decideel to bum back in a freight car. Sunday night late we went to the railroad yards and climbed into a freight that Turner said was going tc St. Louis. We onlv had two sand niches when we entered the car. We ate th;.se a short time after the train pulled away. "Wc were very hungry when wc reached Illmo, and I suggested we get off and beg something to eat. We had hardly gotten out of the coach when Mr. Wilson came up and said to me: 'you look like a woman to me.' Then he asked Turner what he was doing with me, and he said we were going back to East St.. Louis. Then Mr. Wil son searched Turner, and when he j found a revolver in his pocket, Turner j was arrested. "After locking him up in jail he took, jra .to .his home and .made his wife tell .me to take a bath and clean . .. up and she would give me a supply of her clothing. I complied with her re quest -and then they gave me a nice warm-breakfast. It was the first real meal that I had since I left East St. Louis, and it certainly made me want to get home." . Mr. Wilson, who is a special agent for the Cotton Belt as well as being deputy sheriff of Scott County, placed Miss Hardin on a Cotton Belt train, which was elue in St. Louis shortly af ter 8 o'clock last night. She told the official that she was going direct to her home in St. Louis and would never play hobo again. "After she was cleaned up and dressed in my wife's clothing, she looked very pretty," said Mr.'Wilson. "She di dnot seem a vicious girl and I don't believe she is. ORDER OF PUBLICATION.

City Qa Is Almost As Bad AsWater was Health Decided It Was Bad "How is your gas?" That is the question askeel in every quarter of the city. The Tribune has received many, complaints about weak gas pressure, and especially during the past ten days. In every part of the city is gas by no means normal, but in some sec tions it is a great tleal better than in ! others. Many people living south of Good Hope street have been unable to use the ovens of their stoves for more than a week. The gas used for cooking at the St. Francis Hospital has been too low to bake with recently. Mrs. M. J. Kocck, living on South Middle street, ha.; been compelled to send the greater part of her food to the neighbors who have coal ranges. "I have been un- able to cook a roast or bake a pie or cake in my stove for more than a week," she said. "I am able to use the burners on top of the stove, but the air in the gas is so strong that ' i " i T 1 " ' ' A 1 . 1 ? but get no satisfaction. 1 have de cided that my only salvation is in sending the greater part of our1 food to the neighbors to be cooked on coa: stoves.

Folk and now State Beer In spector, has presented each member of the Legislature with a copy of hi:; annual report on the beer industry i:i Missouri. Mr. Mosby shows that this depart- ment, bv turning aimost 500,000 inte the state treasury, has reduced tin taxes in the state. He expresses gratitude for the co-operation the Missouri brewers have extended to his office,. and says that his office has es tablished a record for the number o" analysis made of the proeluct Torewcd in this state. Mr. Mosby 's report shows that the collections of his office have made enormous gains during the past four teen years. The Inspector's statement follows: His Excellency, Hon. Elliott W. Ma jor, Governor ef Missouri: Sir In obedience to the provisions of Section C762, II. S. 1909, I beg to submit the following report of the re- ceipts and expenditures of this office for the year 1914: Fees collected from the sale of cer- tificates and labels $487,824.26, whieh amount has been paid to the State Treasurer as provided by law. Expenditures incurred: For salary of Inspector, $3,000.00; for salaries of deputy inspectors, ?6,000.00; for rent, stationery, office equipment, fuel, printing, traveling expenses of the in pector and his deputies, pay for cler ical help, postage and ether necessary expenses pertaining to the work of in spection, 515,345.64; total expendi- j tures for the year 1914, $21,345.64. Recapitulation for biennial period closing Dec. 31, 1914: ' Rorpints Certificates and' labels $9S7.6S9".63 Salaries and expenses $47,374.46 In addition to the beer inspection fees aggregating $987,869.63 for the past two years, as collected by this office, the brewing industry of the State necessarily bore its part, direct ly or indirectly, of the $6,133,347.98 which paid into the State and County treasuries of Missouri for saloon li censes during the same 'period of two years. Since the year 1901, including the collections of that year, the Depart- I ment of Beer Inspection has paid into ! the Treasury of the State of Missouri the sum of $6.6062o.yw, anei me 01- : !enn?al period just closed has beer, as : . ., 1 - I whenBoard of ! to the company, but the service con tinues to get worse We were told that the stoves are to blame, but when they were examined, they were found to be in gooel condition. When we fi nally get the gas to burn, it is im possible to remain in the houcc. The odor would, I believe, asphyxiate any- j one who was compelled to remain in a I closed room with it." H. D. Lance, living at .'52-3 North Middle street, say the gas furnished his home burns about one-half the time. It seldom ignites, he says, when a match is applied, unless the light is permitted to remain sometime on the burner. Louis Hullwho lives at 304 Belle vue street, had to quit using gas, he said last night, or freeze. He attempt ed to heat his home with it; but wa.i compelled to go to bed to keep warm. "W.e were seldom able to light the grate," he said, "and when it did burn sufficiently to throw out heat, the odor, which resembled sewer gas, al most drove my family from the house. " The pressure at my house w a: not strong enough to heat water. I was compelled to cut out gas alto gether.' I tlon't krov of a sir.g'e fam ily that isn't complaining about the gas service."

The brewing industry in addition to meeting the ordinary tax and license burdens which prevail gen- eraliy. is required, under our beer in- spection statute, to pay an inspccucn fee of 193 cents per barrel of 3i gal- ions upon all beer sold in M.ssoun. Other states have attempted similar legislation, but the Missouri statute is the only one whtch has, before the courts, stood the test of constitution ality. The Missouri statute is constitution al only because it is primarily an in spection and not a revenue measure. (State v. Bixman, 162 Mo. 1). For this reason, although deeply gratified by the increase in our collections, it is nevertheless the policy of the present aeiministratoin to press the inspection features of the statute; We have ac cordingly maele, in our chemical labor atory, 274 analysis of beer samples during the past two years.
