Bmsiness office 8 rooms lbtf Sedalia don't want mayor. a doubtful It approaches sacrilege to mention city politics in a Sunday pape:-, but this is an extraordinary occasion and rmtnoet momentous time. The voters of tbe Second ward elected Gwen Harrison alderman a few years ago. They don't want to mke any more similar mistakes. Will the voters of the Second ward, for once lay aside party prejudices and vote for Bosserman for alderman for the short term ? The tax-payers of the ward cannot afford to defeat him. Under tbe Australian system, there is little Tor no chance for il- , legal voting, hence tbe vote in tbe 'First ward will not be "swelled5" tins year, as it was one and two years ago. Watch the figures. ; The statement of tbe condition of !Third National bank, of Sedalia, is published in tbe Bazoo this morning. It shows that popular institution to le as sound as a dollar and as solid as a rock, as it will always be under tbe management of the present efficient officers. Tbe convention of tbe Bepublican ? League of Clubs, which has just been . in aeasion in Nashville, was but a movement for a ttealtby invasion of the South for the avowed purpose of capturing a few southern states. It Iwon't work, however, it won't work. 'The Bazoo has consulted no one in regard to the city campaign or its ;course in the same or any of its utter- ances, is the organ ot no man or par 1 tv and is dictated to bv no one. It pursues the course it deems right and stall continue to do so, subject to no one hut its manager. Suppose Sedalia should experience mother strike like the '86 uprising mtb Bill Ugenrritz as mayor. What a sorry plight the people would be in. , 3edalia wants a mayor whose heart 'min the right place and with the kioral and physical courage to act promptly and in a manner that would give the people thegreat est confidence. That"a good man's memory is not always permitted to die is evidenced by the fact that the Letter Carriers' issociatiom of New York City has col lected $8,000 for the erection of a nonument to the late S. S. Cox. It is erpecied that the sum wl! saon be Joubled. Mr. Cox was an honor to 'filt k Mi- r "KTitw "WwVr Yt3 in ia -null- j-iUC VILjr UX lien xuifl auu. in jjuw iic tervice. No man ever more richly limed a monument. Twenty-one years ago, on the first jlay of this month, Mr. J. C. Thomp- . joh, then a beardless youth of twenty fene years, entered the employ of the I Etet National bank, of this city, as iissistant bookkeeper. Since that t lay, he has been continuously in the Employ of that well known institution. JHe gradually rose to the positions of ; Wpkkeeper, assistant cashier and 1 cashier, which latter position he now j;kolds and has held for ten years. During all that time, if Thompson has faithfully fulfilled the iJsri of a : Model business man. H's urbanit), courtesy, polite methods, pompiness, accuracy and suavity of treatment to ifjtft alike, added to a fine financial anind and thorough buunes qnai'fica .ons, account for bis successful career. He may well look back up-J on his record for the past twenty-one , years with pnde and all bis friends do - . . .1 1 for bim. A Christian gentleman and; i a successful business man, he is es teemed bv all who know bim. Whatever mistakes Mayor Crawford may have made during bis admiuis-tra-ion, it 13 to be hoped that whoever may succeed him will perpetuate his order is-ued to the po'ice concerning tbe early return of boys to their homes. Nothing is better calculated to injure a community than a class of boys who frequent after nightfall pool looms and other questionable peaces of resort. Certainly it is the first duty of fathers to see thit their boys are under their own roof at an ealy hour, but even the most careful father may sometimes be deceived and while he rests secure in the thought that his boys ai e safe in bed, tbe laLer have stealthily made their way out, and with conpanions have gone where they have no business tu be. Such boys are hard to control, but by police aid, ihis can be doae and their immature bodies as well as minds kept from contamina tion. It is indeed a poor promise for the fuuie, when boys ave granted the freedom of comng into their horres at any hour of the niht and many a prison cell has been filled, many a parent's bead been bwed in sorrow because of a laxness of control in ibis direction. By all means let ihe orde of Mayor C awfoid, wh'ch sends boys home not later than 9:30 be made a standing one and the police required 10 do tueir dutf in the matter in the fullest and most comp.- ehenive maa ner. Ex-President Cleveland's address at a mass meeting in the interest of the New York circulating lib ary was a thoughtful and scholarly effoit and containad some excellent advice. Especially is the following worthy of repioduction. "It is not only of great impor tance that our youth and our men and women should have tbe ability, the desire and the opportunity to read, but the kind of books they read is no less important. Without guidance and without the invitation and en couragement lo read publications which will improve as well as interest, the;e is danger that oar people will have in their bands books whose in fluence and tendency are of a nega tive sort, if not positively bad and mischievous. The boy who greedily devours the vicious tales of imagi nary daring and blood curd ling adventure, which in these days are far to accessible to the yonng, will have his brain filled with notions of life and stand irds of manliness which, if they do not make him a menace to peace and good order, will certainly not tend to make him a useful memb:-r of society. The man who de votes himself to the fla?h literature nw much too common will, instead of increasing his value as a citizen, almost surely degenerate in his ideas of public duty and grow dull in his appreciation of the ob'igatioa he owes to his country. In both these cases there wil be a lo?s to tbe state. There is danger also that a positive and aggressive injury to the corsmuuity will result; and such rearers will certainly su-ffer depriva tion of the happiness and contentment wh'cb are the fru;ts of improving study and well regulated thought. So, too, the young woman who seeks recreation aud entertainment in read ing s:lly and frivolous books, often of doubtful moal tendency, is herself H the way of becoming frivolous and s'lty, if not of weak morality. If she escapes this latter condition she is almost certain to bacome utterly un fitted to bear patiently tbe burden of s?lf-3upport or to assume tbe sacred duties of wife and mother. Con templating thes3 truths, no one can douot the importance of sscuriDg for those who read, as far a3 it is in our power, facilities for the s.udy and readiyg of such books ss wH 'nstruct and innocently enterJa'n, and which will at the same time improve and correct the tastes and desires.

Dun & Co's weekly review of Hade says: "The s a.e of tra ie has not matler a'ly altered during tbe past week, hojgh the change ot weather has produced much temporary improve ments in some lines, and in others, trade i rather les? satisfactory than a week ago. The mor. ary situation is much more salistaclori, no w thstand ing the fact that the cah actuallv held by the treasurer is S3.200,000". more than last week, for rales on call here have defined from 5 to 3i per cent, aod foreign exchange has risen from $4.Slg4 86. Tue intsrior money markets ae generp'ly steady, but on the whole rather more easy. At B )3ton there is still and is expect ed to be, seme pressure until April, but the feeling is belter aud commer cial paper commands about 6 per cent. At Philadelphia, the situation is substantially Hie same, but there appeats to be more stringency. Mon ey is unchanged at Umcago, lairJy active at 67, at St. Louis and at Pittsburg rather abundant, though the demand is large at Cleveland, easy at St. Faul and Omaha, in good demand at Detroit at 7, and steady at that rate at Milwaukee, the de mand at Kansas City beiug only mod erate. Tbe decrease in actual ciicu lation o .t side the treasuiy in the mouth of February was $10,276,963. and this, with the further absorption this mouth by tiie treasury, indicates a less active commercial demand. "The aspect of foreign trade does not change as exports at New York still exceed those of last yar, whi.e the imports have not of late shown an increase. 'J he volume of dmetic trade appears well sus ained. wth general eucouraement noted at Bus ton aod St. Paul, a satisfactory dis- triburon in all seasonable lines at St. Louis, a good jobbing liade at Omaha aod building operation more than do-jb'e those of last year, though storms check retail trade; quiet at Milwaukee and Kansas Ciry and at Chicago, improvement over last y?ar in grain and mea's, with dry go.:ds, trade about equal to last year's and clothing trade only fair in volume. . Boston also notes improvement in clothing on Western orders, liberal sales ot cotton and fair demand for leather, with improvement in boots and shoes aud good ttade m lumber. "The woolen manufacture does not appear t luve changed much in con dition or prospects, though better sales of hsavier weights are noted at Boston, while lighter goods are quiet. Sales of wol are larger 2,585.600 for the week with prices unchanged, and it is thought the bottom has been touched, but prices are depressed at Philadelphia and the early expecta tion of new and large supplies leads holders to make concessions. "In the iron trade also, tbe situa tion has not materially improved, and At Pittsburg prices are again lower. The window glass trade is active, and a fourth advance in prices within three mouths has been ordered, but flint glass works at Pittsburg are cur tailing production. The coal trade is entirely in the buyers favor, while copper and tin have been rather weaker, aud lead in scanty supply aod stronger. "Little can be said of the markets for bread stufis. for notwithstanding a spasmodic activity oee day in wheat, the price is but c lower than a week ago. Corn is unchanged, but oats 1-hc higher. The general course in prices for commodities has been up ward, and the average advance for the week has been nearly J per cent, but the range is so low that a further movement in the same direction be fore tbe coming of spring would not be surprising. "The slock market ha3 not changed during the past week in any material respect, the average be'ng subatantia'y the same, though there was a etionger lone on Friday. The removal of fears concerning possible expoits of gold the rapid rise of for eign exchanges the indications that purchases on foreign accounts now exceed sales of securities, all tend to make the absorption of money by the treasury less observed. It may be added that a dtcrease in activity in trade throughout the country tends to release larger amounts of money t!ian have been expected to return to this center at ptesent. But with bank reserves remarkably narrow for ihe season, specu'tion for an advance in slocks is eh ked by the fear of arti ficial stringency "u money, as it is naturally also by the apprnach of the season ot opeo'ug navigation without satisfactory letllemenls among the transposing lines.

WHERE HE LOST IT. Noland Did Most of His Playing in Kansas City. St. Louis, Mo. , March 8. It was current yesterday among those who wVre trying to figure out how Nobmd could have lost $32s000 at poker in fourteen moath3, or $2,300 a ,moath, that he has carried over a deficit from the pre vious administrat on, but this is hardly credible, and is emphatically and absolutely denied by ex-Treasurer (now Auditor) Siebert. When asked as to Noland's poker haunts, one gentleman sta ed that Kansas City was h's favorite city, but that New Yo.k undoubtedly caught some of the money. The same au thoity gave it out that during the rial of the Missouri Pacific coal cae at Kansas City lust summer Noland played poker every Dight for a week and lost heavily. He would drink f eely aod his losses would be propor tionate to the aniouat of the liquor he had in him. W. H.

Twice Engaged and Twice Es trangedA Church frjeisa iion. Clinton, Mo. , March 8. Miss Ella Houston of this city was once a resident of Ohio, where she was en gaged to a yonng man. She came here some yearj ago before the wed ding day had been fixed. For a time the two corresponded but soon the man grew cold and finally all corres pondence between the two ceased. Not many months since a Mrs Ham mett came fr.m Ohio to this city and, being an acquaintance of Misa Hous- ton ana ner unio ex-iover, sne inter ested heelf in ihe matter and soon the correspondence was renewed, the vows were again exchanged and a wedding was anticipated. An estrangement, however, arose between the women, and llters ceated coming from the fickle Ohioan and the betrothed began to investi gate the reason. An anonymous let ter altogether uncomplimeotary was found to be at the bottom of it. The suspicion of the wronged young lady poioted to Mrs.Hammett. Both ladies belonged to the Methodist church and Miss Houslon demanded a trial It was grauttd and Mrs. Hammett was acquitted. A new trial wTas asked for and last night tbe hearing oa this plea wa3 heard. When G. F. Mitchell, who had in terested himself for Miss Houston was leaving the church, he was assaulted by a son of Mrs. Hammett. The R2v. IVir. Armstrong interfered and hos tilties ceased. Soon, however, a sec ond attack was made by Hammett and Mitchell was kaocked down. He then downed Hammett. Mrs. Ham mett wh'de hurrying t: the sceoe fell and broke her to'sro. The case may be appealed om am ecclesiastical court to a civil court of competent juri-diction. FJf It Yearsi a Cleryji Cumberland, Md., March 8. The Rsv. W. T. D.
