But Any American Girl Have Done the Same and There Would Have No Fuss and Feathers It. Might Thing Been About Honolulu, Sept. 12. The trans port Sheridan, which arrived here recently from Manila, brings n story of Miss Alice Roosevelt, the President's daughter, who is with the Taft party, that shows her iu an interesting and dariug role. She jumped into the swimming tank on the deckof the steamship Manchuria with her clothes on because of a dare she was flivt to propose. It was a burning hot morning the day after the Manchuria had left Nagasaki fur Manila. Miss Roosevelt stood uear the tank, hat off, but with a protect i 1 Mm of The Missouri Democracy. That the condition of affairs in the democratic party of this state at this time warrants, nay, de mands, candid, sober discussion and sane counsel from all who pro fess loyalty and lovo for the party, is not to be doubted by those who intelligently sum up the situation as it is. To assume there is no real danger confronting it would bn foolhnrdiucss, and if the leaders who are to care for its welfare .'take that attitude they will find out their mistake later. The facts speak for themselves. We can neither ignore nor afford to over look them, nor is it wise even to (U'tempt to minimize the difficulties that beset ns. The issues the party is committed to stand out clearly and will brook neither com promise nor temporizing. The fact that these issues are apt to cause dissension in certain quarters must not be allowed to influence the parly in its fidelity to the principles of rignt.it has espoused. The Missouri idea which means the enforcement of law, the elimin ation of graft, of boodle, of boss ism, which means cleaner politics, cleaner government, cleaner social conditions must continue to tri umph. It was the democracy of Missouri which first had the otirage aud foresight to come out boldly nud declare for these things; it is the fine conscience of the parly that revolted against the old order of things; the old order, with its intrigues and bai ter, its manipulations and corruption, its selfish, scheming professionalism; and it is that same inflexible con science that will keep the party in the right path, those who believe in the integrity of the party and its tenets to pnt n stop to this sinning; it lies with the best elements of democracy to see that the party is no longer prostituted by the base and de signing, who care for its welfare only as they are enabled to goin their selfish ends thru it. Men who would assume leader ship mu-t ireisuie up to the highest standards of integrity and ability. No other sort can win under the new conditions. It may not be generally believed, there are ' doubtless many who will scoff at the idea, Imt there luis ccrtaiiily been a polilicul revolution in Mis souri. We are s;ill iu the erup tive period. Forces are at work at the present time which a"e uot eas ily auolv.ed or understood because they nie in u chaotic, fornative condition, hut behind it all it seem stern will of the people demanding better condition, the correction of existing abuses and the regenera tion of polities. We hear much today that a few years ago would have been denounced us socialism of auarchy. Ideu4 once regarded as socialistic aud radical nre now fnely discussed and endorsed by the best and most conservative citizLMis. And why not? If an idea is good and can be made pro ductive of results that will benefit society what matters the source of its origin! Theories that get no results avail nothing, and dried up, outgrown issues arc worse than useless. The democratic party is essentially progressive. U;ie who has faith in its wisdou cannot but believe that it will continue to adopt new principles as changiug conditions warrant, and that it will The old order has passed nway, 1 s'eadfastly adhere to the principles an d the people want no more of inf right and justice that are still it.

The first thing I noticed iu last week's paper was an account of the visit of our governor and his party made to the coast and what ve hicle of transportation did they use most in looking at the differ ent places enroutef Auto. Yes, yet these are the men you are going to get to pass the law, men who use aud know the value of the machine yon descry, both for pleasure and business. Yon might get the support of a representative of your own county and a congressman from this dis trict, but you must realize that there are other counties in the State and they are not alarmed by having two autos in their midst, as we are. I have been in Southwest Missouri for the past six months, - especially Jasper county. The au tos are as thick there as New Jer sey mosquitoes, aud that is not all, they have the motor. Cycles by the score and the suburban electric car.. Yet we do not bear the citi zens crying for quarter, in fear of seeing an auto once per month. We hear of no Fhockiug accidents. The major part of auto accidents occur on race tracks and in cities of congested traffic of which we have neither. Why do j ou not cry out for an act of the legislature forbidding trains to move when passing scary teams, when you read of the shocking train acci dents! There is now, and will bo con tinue to be, more lives lost iu your own city by railway nccidents iu one year than b y autos iu five. It would seem to the out sider that we have a few self-con stituted guardians of public safe ty, who consider it their duty to dash cold water on every project or example of modernity and pro gression that comes before them. The auto is here to stay, and we need it and must have it, not only for pleasure but work as well. The very farmers who are to-day cry ing out against the auto will in ten years, or even less, from now, be tho auto's 8tauuchest friend. It will be their labor saver, their economizer, their pleasure craft, indispeusibte to city and conutry consiu alike. Now I want to explain to the antis how futile their attempts ap pear to a person from the stand point of my business. I am a'pro fessimal commercial advertising agent, aud my view of the ease is this: You may be successful a while in your measure, but ultimately it will never pass. "Wbyf" you ask. It will be oeteated by your own efforts. You are agitating this, and it is unique, thus causing a widetpread interest. Not only causing it to be copied by the other papers of the State, but even the big city dailies are copying aud commenting ou it. Do you not realize what this means! Wake ui, and see before jour boome rang rebounds and strikes you and finds you unprepared. You are causing the auto factories to be presented with thousands of dol lars worth ot unique and valuable advertising, thus popularizing the very machine you are attempting to down. Know ye not that the public buys all popular thiugsf All that is necessary is to stir them np by catchy advertising.getthem en thusiastic lo sell them any certain article. You are certainly doiug the preliminary part of stirring and creating interest, and trust the auto companies to do the rest. You may look now for an in crease iu autos by 20 aud 30's in stead of 2's and 3's, as would have beeu the case not ouly here but elsewhero. This is simply the hot bed, the centre, so by your efforts you are defeating yourselves. The auto factories "should pre sent the instigator of this, matter with the fiuest of machines iu ap preciation ot the concessions to owq their way, which are of nudoubted value. If your streets ana roads . are rammed and jsmnied with autos of every description in a year's lime, untis, blame yourselves only, as you will be instrumental in bringing this about. Trusting that the foregoing will be received iu the same spirit in which it is written. I predict that in year Mtxico papers will be delivered from an electrio "circulation .wag ou." Her merchants using the motor delivery car, aud they will be a familiar sight ou our streets. I beg to remain, "Ad. Agt." Reverend J. L. Rootn of .ytljS vllle Was elected moderator.

The dog und tho pigs took np with each other and the pigs have been sucking the dog ever 6ince and seem to be thriving. A panther has been seeu near Mt. Olivet cemetery. It spits fire and yells like n cat. No one wishes to try to catch it. The New London Record says: Two little boys were recently playing together in this burg.
