Nevada, Mo., Jan. 6. The
Christian church, one o! the largest
and wealthiest church organizations
in this city, is now torn with inter
nal dissension. Quite recently over
one hundred new members were
added to the church membership
under the preaching of Evangelist
Boles of Indiana.
The board, at a late meeting,
adopted a series of resolutions
strongly condemning dancing,covet-
oueneBs and card parties, and de
ciding thf't members of the church
engaging in these pastimes were fit
subjects for church discipline. The
resolutions brought out a pro
test from a very large and respect
able contingent of the church. Both
resolutions and protest were pub
lished in the papers of this city.and
resulted in considerable feeling be
ing aroused. The end of the matter
in looked forward to with much in
terest, as forty-five members of the
church are listed for discipline urder

There were quite a number of

The members of the Democratic
party throughout the country should
line up and cordially support the
party leaders. This is no time for
bickering or fault finding. It strikes
rj, to say the least, as peculiar that
someDemocrats are continually hunt
ing for some cause to harass and an
noy the administration and embar
rass every movement made in the
direction of carrying out the princl
pies of the platform. Instead of cor
dially supporting the tariff bill and
assisting in making it a law you find
Democrats endeavoring to attract at
tention to stay laws and land loan
schemes and snide schemes of that
character. The party, in order to
accomplish anything, must have the
cordial support of the rank and file.
' Candidates and applicants for of
See are as thick as flies in the sum
mer time. In a crowd of men that
leathered at the post-office corner yes
terday afternoon there were candi
dates after the following offices, viz:
: Postmaster, State Legislature, Coun
ty Collector, Circuit Clerk, City Mar
shal, Prosecuting Attorney, City At
torney and Police Judge. The odd
man said he did not know for sure
. what he wanted, but would let them
i' know in 5ji lew days which ene he
would accept. They talked thechan
ces over a while, and although every
man they could think of was also a
candidate, they? were' all bum that
they would get there arid said that
when they did, they intended to stay
lows everything else that Populist
paternalism calls its own.
Democratic pspers fll over the
State are jumping on Samuel and
have not jumped hard enough yet.
The Secretary of the regular State
organization has some responsibili
ties, and when he becomes the ad
vocate of a proposition which defies
the most honored principles of the
party he should be held to account.
If the editor of the Intelligencer wish
es to ally himself with the old Peo
ple's party or the new People's-Sil-ver
party, the matter is one for such
fraternal remonstrance as the Demo
cratic press of the Siate may be dis
posed to express. When the Sec
retary of the regular organization
abandons his party doctrines lor
something new, the entire organiza
tion is interested in knowing how
far bis later affiliations are consist
ent with his official party position.
The trouble with Sam is that the
extra session got him started away
from the Democratic idea of silver
and toward the Populist idea of
money as a gift from the Govern
ment to the people. He just kept
on going while most of those who
started as he did pulled themselves
up in time to stay on the Democrat
Money of the Constitution.
From the St. Lotus Republic.
Governor Stone aptly said in bis
Jackson day speech that the framers
of the Constitution evidently intend
ed that gold and silver should be
the only money of final resort.
And the reason for that intention
was not a mere selection of gold and
silver instead of tin and copper, but
it was the cheating of the people
which bad money had performed be
fore the eyes of the founders. The
fathers of the Constitution intended
to say that the general Government
ought not to, and no other Power
could, ever force the American citi
zen to take as money anjtbingwhich
did not have behind it the definite
and known value of gold or silver
Governor Stone has spoken the
Democratic hard money creed. Ac
cording that creed the general Gov
ernment does injustice to the citizen
when it forces him to accept as pay
ment for his lalxr a single piece of
paper which is not redeemable in a
given weight of gold or silver.
Therefore it is that we must utilize
both gold and silver to mate our
money supply what it ought to be.
Therefore it is that we must address
our efforts at currency reform, not
toward piling up token money on a
gold reserve, but toward widening
the standard. Therefore it is that
making the redeemability of any
Treasury note doubtful is a sin
against the people. Therefore it is
that we must attend to the standard
before we let the Government
pay any more of Us debts in de

to the principles of such a measure,
and as these differences can not well
be recon. ;;ed the general desire in
the committee is to report a bill sim
ply repealing the tax and then let
the House decide all differences
The bill of Mr. Cox, of Tennessee,
which is, in brief, a repeal of the
Stale bank tax without any effort at
regulating future bank issu;a, was
under consideration at the last meet
ing of the committee. To some ex
tent it is bidding for favor against
the bill of Mr. Springer, chairman
of the committee, which removes the
tax on certain kinds of State bank
issues secured by Government,State
or municipal bonds. Mr. Springer
thinks the bills do not conflict, and
might both be reported. It is proba
ble, however, that the simple repeal
bill will first be reported, and that
the Springer bill will be taken up by
the committee later.
The Ways and Means Committee
have two important tasks before
them, one the final settlement of the
terms of the internal revenue branch
of the tariff bill and the other the
authorization of bonds to meet the
pressing Treasury deficit.

these items from the last census re

From it we learn that in Colum

families. As there are 4,500 people
in Columbia, that means we have
4.87 persons to a family and 4.99
almost five to a dwelling. In
Mexico there are 4.53 persons to a
family, in Fulton 6.03, in Boonville
5.25 and in Jefferson City the ex

W e have more dwellings, in pro
portion to population, in Columbia
than there are in Fulton, Louisiana

shelled out every dollar be had with

me, and I am a ruined man!"

While'the courts might have settled

WAS THERE BLOODSHED I
Bnmor at Washington That American
Marines Were Landed at Honolulu.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 8.!
rumor is current at the Capitol this
afternoon that the dispatches from
Minister Willis to Secretary Gres-
ham state that marines were landed
at Honolulu from American war
ships, and that fighting and blood
shed ensued. The rumor, although
apparently baseless, is gaining
credence in many quarters. So far
it cannot be verified.' In favor of
the correctness of the rumor it is
argued that the Provisional , Gov-
ship, may have become aggressive
and arrested the Queen, thus pre
cipitating a riot in the city, and
that minister Willis to protect life
and property of Americans, who
were compelled to use their arms
to carry out their orders.
To an inquiry made at the State
Department late this afternoon as
to the truth of the rumor the an
swer was made by one of the officials :
"Don't lose any time'on the re
port. It is baseless."
