Under the above elegant caption

of the Republican county organiza

imputation of .sending a special cat

publican mass meeting to dominate
it, the Bonne Terre Democrat-Reg
ister says, "Mr. F'ishet knows it is
untrue." Now, Mr. Fisher doesn't
know anything of the sort. We
gathered out information and
formed our inference from the gen
eral talk, indignant and outspoken ,
of Republicans in this vicinity who
participated in that mass meeting
some of thsm life long Repnblicans
who were active party workers
long before the editor of the Dem
ocrat -Register renegaded to their

truth spoken about us once iu
awhile, even though couched in

that the corporation in politics,
leeking favors at the hands of both
State and National governments,
is not particular as to the party af

Tin: Times 1ms been combatting
this baneful and corrupting influ

had occasion to criticise members
of its own patty as well as Repub
licans for their subserviency. This
influence, the corporation in poli
tic, seeking special governmental
favors, is responsible for nearly all
tin corruption and boodling in our
municipal, State anil National gov
ernments. Hack of every piece of

SO intensely engaged in attempting
to create lalsc impressions concern
ing the official acts of Sheriff Mur
phy, whose personal character is
above reproach and who is opposed
by certain people because he hi
faithfully anil conscientiously done
bis duty as an officer, it may not
be amiss for the people to learn
something of the Republican nom
inee tot Sheriff, whom the New
claims is such an honest ami propt
man to succeed to that office.
His name is James Croke. U
is a locomotive engineer on the M
It. Mi B, T. railroad, anil his nom
illation was made by a convention
which many Republicans declan
was dominated and controlled I
tin- corporations of the county.
In ISSfi, according to the crim
inal records of this county, one
James Croke was the principal in :
little transaction that caused him
to take a sudden notion that i
would be healthier for him in an
nihi l State than in this. For this
little transaction an indictment
charging him with lelonv was
found by the grand jury, on tin
sworn testimony of J . A. Aber
nathy, that Croke had stolen $lNi
ami other valuables from him am
skipped out. air. t roke was
brought back to this State on a le
gai requisition, ana in some way
fixed up matters with the ptosecul
ing witness, .nr. Aoernainy, bo
that when the case came to trial.
February 19, 1887, the latter's tes
timoiiy was so 'modified" from
that given before the grand jury
that Mr. Croke was acquitted,
The question might be asked
why Mr. Croke skipped out and
had to be brought back by legal
process if he had done nothing
wrong He has lived in this coun
ty ever since.
Again, on the 20th day of Feb
ruary, 1887, James Uroke appeared
before the Circuit Court under an
indictment for carrying concealed
weapons, pleaded guilty to the
charge, submitted his cause to the
mercy of the Court and wan fined
5u and costs.
Again, in 1890 he was indicted
lor gambling, and at (he fall term
of the Circuit Court of that year,
on the 1 7th day of November,
pleaded guilty to this charge also,
submitted his cause to the mercy
of the Court, and was fined $5.00
ami costs.
But his hackers for the shrievalty-
say that he has reformed. We sin
cerely hope he has, for that is to
his credit; and while we like to cn-
ouragc people who turn from the
evil of their ways, still we do not
think that his is a record to point
him out to the good people of St.
Francois county as a man to be
preferred to Monda Murphy for
Mr. Croke is said to be a good
locomotive engineer, and we be
lieve the people of the county will
vote for him to continue in that
honorable occupation.

The Farmington News, in a
brief com men) on Senator Uokrell's
speech at this place, says: "His
statement as to the difference in
the assessed valuation end tnx levy
in Missouri and the surrounding
Republican states is pretO well an
swered in our supplement." The
apple men I referred to is a promis
cuous dish tip of characteristic Re
publican campaign literature sent
out by the Republican Slate Com
mittee to count r Republican pa
pers, We turned to it to see bow
the qneatiou whs met by its cam
paign ngnrt ntortioniats.
We will first state the issue:
Missouri, a Democratic state, has
been charged by the Republican it
with discriminating in favor of
railroads and other corporations in
assessing them for taxation. Ii
has been shown, ami the Republi
cans tlo not al tempt to deny this,
that the railroads arc assessed nt
from fl2,000 to $15,000 a mile in
Missouri, wlnlc in Republican Illi
nois they arc assessed at only
$6,000 to $7,000, mid iii Republi
can Iowa ami Kansas at even less.
The tax rale in Missouri for Stale
purpose! of all k i txls is 17 cents
on the $100 assessed valuation; iu
Illinois it is 'tl cents, iu Iowa 37
cents ami iu Kansas 62 cents.
In the "supplement" article re
ferred to by the News, an attempt
is made to show (hat the taxes in
Missouri are relatively higher I ban
in either Illinois or Iowa Kansas
is left out - by reason of the mole
favorably worded revenue laws of
those states. Wr qnote from the
"The laws of Missouri raqnin proper
ly nt all claMMM to hi- saaeasad at Us act
ual rash value.
"The revenue laws of Illinois require
pro parti of all kinda to in- oaaeaaw t
one-fifth f Us caati value.
"The revenue laws of owa require
property "( all kinda to i aaaaaaeo at
one-fourth of its cash value."
The article then gm- on to ar
gue that a piece of property, the
cash or selling value of which is
if l.ooo, is assessed at $1,000 in
Missouri, in oniv .tnu in Illinois
ami at 0240 in Iowa.
Now there isn't a farmer or prop
art)' holder in this state. Republi
can Or Democrat, who, if he has
thought of the matter, doean't
know that a farm worth $1,000 is
not assessed at that sum in Mis
souri. If he does not know this,
let him think to himself what lie
regards as a fair cash price for his
farm or property what he would
be willing to take for it if he want
ed to sell--anti compare this with
what his farm or property is as
sessed at lor taxable purposes,
He will discover that his land is
assessed at about one third of its
cash value; so that, Instead of bei-
ing aaseseed $1,000 on s farm the
cash valne of whioh is $1,000, he
is assessed al only about $340, and
his horses, cuttle and other stuck
are assessed in aboiil the same pro
portion to their cash value it nut
Now, with this clear and houeal
understanding, Id us figure a little.
farm worth $1,000 in Missouri is
assessed at about p34U, the State
taxes on which at 17 cents on the
$100 valuation amounts to 58
In Illinois, a farm of the same
ash value is assessed, according
to this Republican figure twister,
at $200. The State taxes on this
at the Illinois rate of 52 cents on
the $100 valuation would amount
to $1 .04, nearly twice as much as
in Missouri.
In Iowa, a farm of the same cash
value, according to this same Re
publican authority, is assessed al
$240. The State taxes on this al
the Iowa rate of cents on the
$100 valuation would be
Another boast of the Republicans
is that Illinois receives more in Ihc
way of taxes from railroads, not
withstanding the low assessment
placed on railroad property there,
than Missouri does. That may be
true, but so do all taxpayers in Il
linois pay more Stute taxes than
the taxpayers in Missouri on prop
erty of approximately the same
value, because the State tax rate
iu Republican Illinois is three times
as much as it is in Democratic Mis
