THE MONTGOMERY TRIBUNE: VOL IX. How The People Voted In Montgom- cry county In 1896 and 1898 Tho election Tuesdoy passed off quietly at Montgomery City. Both parties had their workers on the grounds early and nearly every voter went to tho polls. It appears that tho democrats havo elected their whole .county ticket but their majorities havo been greatly cut down. For tho convenience of our raiders wo havo arranged a summary of tho vote for 1800-1808 and 1800. On Bryan in 1806 tho democrats had a.plurallty of 352; In 1803 on Judgo Marshall, 201. Bryan's majority In 1806 was 201, and Marshall's 180. In 1000, based on estimates received, Dry an's plurality Is 81. Dockcry'a plurality In 1P00 based on estimates received Is about 100. For Itoprc cntatlvo In 1800 Davoult's plural I ty was 140. In 1808 Seo's plurality was 273 and majority 172. In 1000 Mnbry leads Stewart by a plurali ty of 152. In 1800, Graham, for Collector, lead Baker with a plu rality of 215 and a majority of 110. In 1808 Graham lead Blades by a plurality of 337 and a majority of 218; In 1000 Garner leads Rodgcrs by a 'plurality of 110. In 1800 McCall's majority was 171 and plurality 88. In 1808 McCall's plurality was 353 and majority 272. This year Wilson's plurality Is 01 over Johnson. In 1890 Ball's plurality was 300 and In 1808 Ball's plurality over Lafferty was 232. This year Cook appears to lead Lafferty by 3 votes. Sovcral votes at Mlddletown were thrown out by tho judges that had LafTcrtys name on, that perhaps should have been counted for him. Other places in tho county the samo thing occured. It may bo1 that tho onlclal count will chango tho result on Cook and Lafforty. It-lsi certainly a . condition iithiit Mr. Cook Is entitled to the 3 votes as n majority no one should call his election In question. But being so close, tho voto should be ,gono over with great care, and It Lafferty 1b justly cntltclcd to any more votes when tho Intent of tho voter Is clear, ho should havo them. Wo bcllovo that neither tho friends of Cook nor of Lafferty deslro that cither should receive ono moro voto than each Is Justly entitled to. On tho other offices thlB year tho democratic pluralities appear to bo nearly wiped out. This is a lino showing for tho Republican organization of tho county this year. It shows what can bo dono when wo havo a good ticket, a good organization, audall pull together. Though wo elect not ono on tho ticket, still tho ro suit Is a victory for tho republican party In tho county, as wo havo gained, since 1890, about 230 votes on an nvcrngc, In tho county. Let every valiant Republican tako courago and buckle, on tho armour for tho noxt contest In 1002 and it wo stand together as wo did this year, wo certainly will win. To Dtf. G. E. Muns, Chairman of tho Central Committee and R. S. Paul Secretary, much credit Is duo for our gains. Our precinct com mitteemen did flno scrvlco and tho party Is to bo congratulated on their good work. All did thplr work woll. MONTGOMERY CITY, FRIDAY, NOVEMBERS, lfcpO.

There are very few voters who reolly and truly aro opposed to allowing St. Louis tho right to vote $5,000,000 worth of bonds on her own tax payers. Then, no Mlssourian, bo he ever so backward, could hardly willingly voto against a state ap propriation of $1,000,000 for' a state exhibit. lngton, tho most popular speaker who appeared at tho meeting of tho National Educatlonnl Associa tion nt Charleston last summer, has been secured tor a lecture. Fifty or moro of the leading educators of Missouri are on tho program, in suring Its practical Value to tho teachers of tho state. Special at tention will bo given to rural schools and their problems, and it Is hoped that teachers of rural schools will attend In great num bers.

Henry Splnsby, 80 years old, a resident of this city slnco 1812, at tempted suicide yesterday ovenlng at his homo No. 2737 Olive street, by cutting his throat. His motive lay In a petty quarrel with hi wile, ana no acciaea that when a man's better halt refuses to stand by hiln ho were better dead. No. 2737 Olive Street Is a board Ing house conducted by Mrs. Laura Splnsby, wife of tho old man. Early yesterday Splnsby, so ho says, discovered a boarder of tho house washing his socks and un derwear in tho basin in which he was accustomed to wash his face. This disgusted him and ho fortwlth went to his wlfo, told of tho cir cumstance, nnd requested that the objectlonablo boarder bo requested to depart, Mrs. Splnsby did not see the matter In tho same light, according to the old man, and told htm that he was getting foolish. This In jured his feelings and shortly after 6 o'clock he retired to his room, got out his razor, and standing be fore the looking-glass, drew Its harp blade across his neck from ear to ear. He did not cut either of the larg er arteries, but made a frightful gash In his neck. It caused him Kreat pain aud .forned htm to cry out. This attracted the others of the family' and Harry. av son. ran out upon the street to secure policeman, When a blue-coat reached the place, Splnsby was WV M l"l ill' , " ... .. Biuuiug up aaat aown me room with the raror still In his hand Tho old man did not want to. sub mit to the officer; but finally did, and was removed to tho City Hospital. Spluaby appears between CO nnd 60 years of age, and when ho told tho hospital attendants that ho was 80, they would not believe It. They wcro convinced however, when tho old man glibly told them the day of tho month of his birth, and of lacta connected with tho early his tory of St. Louis, which he re membered. Mrs. Splnsbyand Harry Snlns- by assert that the old man is not responsible for his actions. Tues day's St. Louis Republic teFeird7r The voto In 12 precincts, exclu sive of Montgomery, Wcllsvlllo, Mlddletown and New Florence, fell off considerably. According to tho Blue Book the Democratic loss in the 12 precincts from 1898 Is 87, and the Republican loss 35. Tho net democratic loss Is 52. As compared with the voto of 1898, the democratic loss Is 172, and republican loss 78. Total net dem ocratic loss from the 1898 vote Is 01. movod from the flowers boforo thoy wero given her." Many courtesies were offered tha convention from the business men. tho clubs of tho city, tho school, tho oratorio, etc., which shows tho appreciation of one of the grandest societies of any age; an apprccla Hon well deserved. Culnoa Grouse. Last Saturday nearly everybody who was on our streets stopped In front of Algermlufcen & Shaefer's feed and flour store to take a free look at what was placarded as Guinea Orouno from South .Ameri ca," Some caught on, so to speak, nnd some said: "what horrid things." One Is n rooster and the other a hep. But Guinea Grouse, never. Tho chief storo keeper, Sir. P. P. Paxton (Press) answered all Inquiries as to how the firm came Into possession of tho Grouse from South America by saying "tut, tut, how do I know I Wo never advertise anything unless wo havo It to sell. They are worth $10. each." Latcrln tho day some ono made tho discovery that the Guinea Grouso was nothing mora nor less than an old broken-back roojtcr nnd broken-bock hen.

Thursday evening was given up to "Y" work and dem onstration of departments. Mrs Nellie G. Burger is Secretary of the "Y" branch and presided over this deportment. Mrs. E.
