A Democrat ic member of the Missouri

A straight party ticket for the city

city nominating a party ticket for the

opposed to all tile Republicans who
wero nominated for county ottices in

The destination of the third Japan
ese army has been revealed by the
landing of a force estimated at i".G(tO
on tho Shantung promontory. :!" miles
from the stronghold of Wei-lIai-Wci.
This indicates a determination to
move on the chief military post at
present iu the hands of the ( 'hiuc.se.
Wei-Hai-Wei is fortified strongly by
nature, and the Chinese have added
to its strength considerably of late,
but Port Arthur was likewise well pro
tected by nature and military art. and
yet it fell without any very effective
resistance into the hands of the Japan
ese. If the latter gets possession of
this valuable fortress on the southern
shore of the Gulf of i'e-Chi-Li. they
will be in practically complete control
of the Chinese coast from the extrem
ity of the Shan-Tung promontory
The Chicago Herald, which recently
did so much to advertise tin- I'otton
States and International Kxposition.
in its issue of Jan.llth contained an
editorial urging the Illinois legislatuiv
to appropriate ft).(KH for a state ex
hibit at Atlanta. The Herald States
that there is a fund which can Ik- used
without levying a dollar ol tax. and
argues that the manufactinvd goods
now bought by the South from Xcw
England could be furnished by the
manufacturers of the West just as
easily: With equal mail facilities and
an equal showing in freight rates, the I
West and South ought to have as
large an intercourse as the South and
the Kast. Following the same line.
Business leagues in several Illinois
and Indiana towns are taking steps to
have their manufacturing industries
represented at the Exposition.
Senator Sherman has introduced a
bill which may be descrilied as an
emergency currency measure, for the
i-elief of the Treasury. It authorizes
the issue of .1 per -cent, short-term
bonds, or, in lieu of bonds, certificates
of indebtedness, payable in coin after
live years, and in denominations of
5 to $100. bearing 3 ier cent interest.
If another loan is a necessity and
the Treasury situation each day grows
worse the Sherman plan is a sound
one. If bonds or certificates of in
debtedness must lie issued let them be
of small denomination, and be offered
to the American people, instead to
banking syndicates or foreign' inves
tors. There is a vast volume of money
horded by people who distrust banks.
The absolute security of government
bonds, and the fact that these hoards
could be made productive of interest
by being invested in them, would draw
out many millions of money.
The new Sheriff and the new Coroner
of New Madrid county failed to quali

Court has been called to appoint men
to fill the vacancies and to order a
special election to fill the two offices.
Ben Deering, the wicked temperance
agitator and general leader in cranky
movements, is at Jefferson City lobby
ing for a high license bill that would,
if passed, exterminate the saloons.
Ben Deering is well known all over
the State. Ho is a traveling preacher
whose motto is to raise hell wherever
he goes, and in that particular busi
ness he is a success. It would be hard
for the deil to scare up a man who
could better do his bidding.
Senator Hill secured the adoption
by the Senatj of an amendment to the
item of the appropriation bill making
provision for the collection of tho in
come tax, limiting the interrogatories
of the officers seeking to collect the
tax. The amendment will have the re
sult of compelling tho Treasury depart
ment to change its regulations as to
collecting tho income tax vhieh have
been already distributed tothe internal
revenue collectois throughout the
country. The probability is that Mr.
Hill thus helps a good many people to
evade the tax. while protecting them
from inquisitorial methods on the part
of federal officials.
JAI'A X OVKIIEVTIM ATKIl.
A correspondent- writing from Pekiu j
to a London newspaper comments upon
the prevailing disposition to overes
timate the military power and prowess
of the Japanese. lie writes: "Much
has lieon said recently as to the excel
lence of the Japanese troops and to
the effect that Japan must now lx
reckoned as a powerful military factor.
Such, however, can scarcely yet lx?
taken for granted--to rank her army
higher than that of any third-class
European power would assuredly be
to exaggerate the importance of her
recent successes. On no occasion have
her land forces met with serious resist-
ince: her army has drawn its brand-
:ew sword, and shown itself skilled in
all modern tactics, but there has lieen
no meeting with any adversary worthy
of the name. Nor. in the present state
of Chinese officialdom, is there likely
to lv: for the same story comes from
everv nine? v. here ( hmese troops are
gathered an litter breakdown in the
supply of rice, followed by a refusal
:f t lie troops to advance without it. "
As to the Chinese soldiers. lie remarks:
"China's humiliation and the utter
ollapse of her nrmv are direct lv due
to the absence of commissariat and
transport organization, and. indireet
!y. of course, t o the ignorance and dis
honesty of her officials. The material
of her levies is in many cases excel
lent. Any on. who saw I as did the
writer) some 12.0(H) men of the Shensi
troops march through the Chinese city
here could not but notice their orderly
conduct and soldierly learing. Their
Remingtons were clean and service
able, their discipline good, and their
physique fur superior to that of the
Japanese. Given capable leaders and
regular pay these men are splendid
fighting-material. But whim, on leav
ing the neighborhood of the capital,
they find themselves defrauded of their
pittance and dependent on their forag
ing for the day's food, is it any great
wonder that they refuse to fight, or
that their line of march is marked by
pillage and rapine?"
CORN AND COTTON.
Two staples In Which the I'nited
States Leads the Worlil.
Cotton and corn an; the two great
American staples, and the two in which
the United States stands easily at the
head, not only of all countries but of
all countries combined. The total
cotton supply of the world, figured on
the basis of bales of 400 pounds each,
is about l.ihHl.(KMl bales, and of this
amount the I'nited Stales produces
about !.mHl.oik bales, or two-thirds of
the whole ;i mount. The crop here at
ained the highest iigures before the
war in lsilO.whcn it was -UMHUKHI bales,
of 170 pounds: lS'.t was the Ih-sI year
for cotton since, the crop being '.UK'-O.-MK
bales of 470 pounds.
The i-orn acreage of the I'nited States
for 14 is f.:,.o;lO.(Ki(! acres, and the
total product 1.2(H.UK.(NMI bushels of
the value of alHiut li(K.HN.MHI. The
great corn year was iKxil. with a crop
or 2.1iK.(i0;UMK bushels: 1S'.I2 followed
with 2.(HK.(HK).(KH bushels. In 1S!2 and
IS'.t.l the ligtiivs were, about the same--l.litHl.tHHt.UHl
bushels. Compared with
the value of the corn and cotton crop,
the other agricultural productions of
the I'nitftd States occupy a subordi
nate position, the value of the wheat
crop being $2i"i.Kil.0IHt. oats :M4.000.

Two surprises because of the differ
ence in value compared with ordiaary
public expectations are hay and to
bacco. The hay crop of the United
States amounted last year to ?4"i8.(XKl.
000 in value: the tobacco crop, on the
other hand, amounted to only 927.000.

the tobacco crop was M jier cent
greater, and considerably more than
half of it came from two States, Ken
tucky and Tennessee. Kentucky stands
at the head of tobacco States. Penn

Some Interesting Figures from the
State Auditor's Annual Report.
Jefferson City. Mo., January 21.
The biennial report of State Audi
tor James M. Seibert is out of the
hands of the Public Printer and is
ready for distribution to the members
of the Thirty-eight General Assembly
and to the public. This is the most
important of all State papers, as it is
a complete financial exhibit of the
workings of the State Government.
The suhject of criminal costs is dis
cussed and attention is called to the
fact that the unpaid bills of 18D1, now
on file in his office, amount to
$117,426,50, which, with tho 3525.000
estimated for payment of bills in 1895
!), make a total of $642,420,50 to be
provided for by this Legislature. This
item of public expenditure, he says,
has been about equal to 10c per capita
of the population during the past fifty
years, and suggest, very pointedly,
that if the laws were so amended as to
bring about tho more speedy trial of
persons charged with crime, limiting
continuances and changes of venue,
the effect would be a very material re
duction of this expenditure. He does
not belive that the fees of the officers
charged with the enforcement of the
criminal code can be safely reduced,
since they are already lower than are
allowed for similar services in civil

Nebraska Legislators Otiposod
I.ynrliinir of ISlncksas Weil as
LINCOLN'. Nkb.. Jan. 2". The most
exciting scene in this legislative ses
sion occurred last night. The Barrett
Scott matter was under discussion and
reference was made to the resolution
denouncing the lynching of Scott.
when Kdgar Howard ( Dem. f arose to
offer a resolution. Howard is editor
of the Papillon Times. His resolution
was that the llonsedenonniv the lynch
ing of Charles Smith, a negro, which
oreurred (let. 1 1!I. in Omaha, and
in which several hundred of the alleged
best citizens of Omaha took part. The
whole house was at once in an uproar,
several members standing on their
desks and shoi'ling vainly for recog
nition. Howard -;ravely said that he
thought it only right to make no dis
crimination i t'.vei :i while and colored

number of Kepublieans voting to lay
the resolution on ihe tabl - Dr. Uiek-

nounced his Kepuhlican colleagues for
deserting the colored man iu this way.
fusion again ivigned. and in a few j
minutes l" was greatly increased when
several of them ask .'d leave to change
their vof'-s. The changes v.ere agreed
to and Hie motion to denounce the
Smith lynching was carried by a vote
of 7ii to 12.

the Kxcise Commissioner, shall not be
less than STiOO for each six months,

Mr. Love says that the object he had
in view in introducing the measure
was the entire annihilation of the
traffic, and that he has the support
not only of scores of small dealers,
who declare that their cigarette trade
is a source of )Msitive loss to them,
but from confessed "fiends" as well,
the latter saying that they would like
to have cigarettes placed beyond their
own reach. Mr. Love says that the
American Tobacco Co. "s St. Louis
airent was here during the (irst few
days of the session to get the temper
of the Senate upon the subject, but on
being assured by a numlier of Sena
tors that there was no chance for him
to secure any support in opposition
to the bill lie deserted the Held and no
further resistance is expected. The
bill will unquestionably receive hearty
support in the House. In fact, it is
one of few measures upon which it is
entirely safe to assume that entire
harmony of sentiment will be shown
between the two branches.

WILLIE'S BAD LANGUAGE.
His Papa Declined to Explain to Ills
On one of the cold and stormy nights
last week Willie Brown and h 8 papa
were down town, says tho Cincianati
Tribune. The wind was blowing ter
ribly and Mr. Brown telephoned home
that he and his son would wait until
the storm had partly subsided before
they would venture out Then Mr.
Brown dropped into his favorite club
and soon became interested in the na
tional game while Willie pretended to
go to sleep on the sofa.
The next day when Willie went to
school his teacher, who is a charming
young lady, was instructing him in
arithmetic, and was using a number
of cubic blocks for tho purpose. Willie
had put a number of them together in
certain form when his teacher asked
him if he wanted some blocks.
"No, I think I'll stand pat," said
"What?" exclaimed the teacher. The
boy repeated the assertion and there
was a bewildered look upon the young
lady's face. j
"Where have I heard those words
before?" she soliloquized.
Vexed that she could not remember,
sho said: "That language is Greek to
me. If you use any more of it I will

"Why. Willie, said his teacher in
