WEST GOODWDT, SEDALIA, HO. WEEKLY BAZOO. r FDA 1.1 A MC TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25 1884. It looks as if King Cotton would have to divide his possessions with King Cattle m future. Now that the Fords have all been washed awav, it will prove poor trav eling for hermaphrodites who cannot swim. Let the world va as it may, the Bazoo will contiuiue to be an independent newspaper published for the people now on earth. Most the Journals of commenting upon or couotry in Blaine's late tirade at Augusta him Blaine the blatherskite. the Mr. write Cleveland's plurality in New York wa3 1147. He carried Boston by 11.476. or with exactly the same fig ures with a six added in the unit place. Blaine's Delmohico dinner seems to have proven a Belshazzar feast for him. It also bear3 a striking resem blance to the feast described in the Book of Daniel. The spectacle of the republican Journals trying to screw up the fighting qualities of their supposed, small, majority in the senate by quoting the Andrew Jackson dynasty is amusing if not ludicrous. The Globe-Democrat demands that if the Illinois democratic legislature presumes to supplant John. A. Logan with a democratic senator that the republican national senate refuse to permit him to be seated this is "Ljvil for what they say. This paper feels Derfectlv satisfied with the result of ml Lamm's election to the office of Pros cu ting attorney of Pettis county, and the credit belongs to the voters. They did it with their little ballots. The Bepublican Journals do not propose to take any more chances on bluff They urge the playing of a trump card this time for the New York senators hip, in no less a per son than Ex-president Arthur with them it i3 anything to be at Conkling whom they view as the coming fusion candidate and hope to over come him with his old antagonist the president. One of the funniest of the funny contretemps indulged in by the Cin cinnati Inquirer and other incendiary sheets,is their assertions that the fright of colored people of the south over the election of Cleveland and a democratic administration, will cause a general exodus from the southern states to Arkansas and Missouri. They seem to forget Arkansas and Missouri are and always have been banner demo cratic states. It is a painful subject to dwell upon that whisky was the main cause which brought Marsh Wright, of Henry county, so near his grave the other day. And still, it is claimed, that to prohibit its manufacture and sale is trampling upon the rights of the people. Shame on such twaddle. Prom the manner in which the Globe-Democrat asserts a thing in one paragraph of its editorial column and contradicts it in the next With a sing song Katty-did Katty didn't air one would think it was throwing up its crow diet m a promis ceously mixed condition. Our ministers should not forget that next Thursday is Thanksgiving day they cannot too strongly im press upon their hearers the many and great blessings have been vouchsafed the people of this nation the past year in striking contrast with the misfortunes and disasters throughout the older civilized countries, and it becomes every christain to inquire as to how little more we are deserving of them than our neighbors. The republican pres3 asserted during the late canvass of the New York vote that the "bankrupt demo cratic committe had sent out begging letters for funds to carry it through." They now report that "owing to the small deficiency in the republican campaign fund of about 8190,000, it will be necessary to "request asufficient contribution to enable the committee to settle its accounts." Why not make another civil service assessment ? The Cincinnati Commercial Ga zette is very bitter over the election of Cleveland. Among other things it says "At no other point will the political revolution incident to the election of Cleveland appear so strik ing s at Washington." It is to be hoped this is true. At no other place is "Striking" and hard striding at cor ruption so much needed. If the newspapers of the laud will devote as much editorial space during the coming week to telling what are the true needs of the country as they have employed in asserting and deny ing what the new administration is and is not like to do, they will not only confer a favor upon the country, i - . .... out help the politicians to see their way clear. If the drift of the editorials of the republican sheets indicate anything they indicate that there is to be an organized effort to import all "loyal" v. colored people from the cotton states to Missouri and Arkansas, in order, four years hence to make these states republican, in hopes of overcoming what they are pleased to call the "Solid Democratic South." The wit of the Boonville Advertiser " is excruciating. Long experience has taught the Bazoo that with new beginners they are hardly reipomlble Thus far the republican press has only pronounced its interdiction to Mr. Cleveland's appointmeut of five classes of political factions northern democrats, southern democrats, in dependents, prohibitionists and those republicans who are charged with having defeated Mr. Blaine bv over zealousness in his cause. This makes tbe-ifiiatter pretty clear and as they have kindly not forbidden the ap pointment of Butler men and repub licans whose record is clear with Blaine, Dorsey, et al no doubt Mr. Cleveland will take care to make his appointments from those classes. There may be those who honestly believe the chauge of political ad ministration will not prove advanta geous to the country. If so and they be christians Jet them next Thursday ue tnanKrui tor past tavors ana pray God in earnest faith to avert the ill . n 1 . tney tear, ennstam patriotism can demand no less, There may be those who honestly believe the change of political administration will" prove advantageous to the country if so let them thank God, next Thursdcy things have been no worse and pvay for iranrovement and worthiness to deserve and enjoy it, christain duty can do no less. Talking of civil service reform, the following from the Cincinnati Times Star respecting the condition of that beautiful citv in the emnire state of loyalty is suggestive of the need of a considerable reform, more consider able even than in the metropolis of poor old Missouri: "The police have not received their pay since the beginning of last June. Many of these faithful guar dians of the. city are suffering, winter coming on and fuel and clothing to buy. Money lenders are taking cruel advantage of their increasing distress, and supplying them with money at a ruinous rate of interest. As soon as there is enough in the city treasury the police should be paid." While the newspapers are enjoy ing the pleasant pastime of making cabinets for Celveland, and discussing cifil cervice, it is to be hoped our, congrnssmen are considering the real needs of the people, among which may be mentioned: A readjustment of the tariff, the regulation of the mo nopolies and pool swindlers, adjust ment of tariffs and railway traffic, provisions for a postal telegraph, formation of a national bureau of ed ucation, readjustment of territorial laws, regulation and remodeling of the Indian policy surpression of poly gamy regulation of labor imigration reduction of the internal revenue system and a number of other ques tions well known to democratic states men as the hidden shoals that em. baress the harmony and prosperity of the national government. "Carl Schurzsays he believes Cleve land will faithfully carry out the civ il service law, because a similar law in New York has been "strictly ob served" bv him. If Mr. Schurz can point to a single instance where Mr. Cleveland has ever appointed a re publican to office, or kept one in office where it was possible to turn him out, he should hasten to do so, as no case of that kind has yet been brought to the public notice." Globe Democrat. If the G-D. can point to a single instance in which a republican presi dent from Grant down to the present time hae appointed or kept in a demo crat when it was possible to turn him out. Then, and not till then, will it BOONVILLE BREEZES. An Interesting Letter From Our Special Correspondent. Cooper County Circuit Court The Applicants for the Po 8 tta as ters hip, Etc.

Cleveland's Interview. Boston, Nov. 22. In the course of an interview with a representative of a Boston paper.to day, President Elect Cleveland in gpeaking of business and manufacturing interests of the country and the efiect of the change in the administration on these interests, said, "it goes without saying that the democratic party is made up of mer chants, business and working men, and everbody certainly dsires good times and realizes that all people must be prosperous to secure that result. We have 55,000,000 people, almost boundless resources, hun dreds of the strongest financial institu tions of enterprising merchants, the most skillful manufacturers and most intelligent farmers and workingmen on the face of the earth. Now, surely a country with these characWs, has every qualifica tion for solid and permanent prosperity. It will be my aim and the aim of all as sociated with me in the conduct of affairs at Washington to give the people of the United States a site and eco nomical and conservative government. In fact so many business men, manufac turers and workingmen voted with the democratic party that this election shows thpy were not afraid of a change in the ad ministration. The democratic party, in its Chicago platform, meant what it ssid and said what it meant, and will carry the pro visions of that platform, which relate to the business interests of the country, into effect. The most important thing io restore confidence and determination to forget pirtisahihip and excitement and devote our Jives to things which tend to the substantial welfare of the country and all of i!s people.

At 5 o'clock this morning Stewart kicked the door in at Miss Hobason's residence, and rushing up to her room, knocked her down and beat her in an unmerciful manner. When found she was in a semi conscious condition with two ribs brok- n. Her face was pounded to a jelly and with other injuries which it is feared will result in her depth, Stewart was arrested.
