Business office. 48 Job rooms 169 A "Chestnut" par:y was given in Boonville lsst week. It is safe to tay that EJitor Plant was "not in it." Nobody is surprised that there was a woman in the baccarat case. H. R. H. has never been knonrn as a Joseph to any great exteut. "Deane" is a good name, but when Mr. Plant of Boonville, hears it in future, he will remember one occasion when it did not shield a disgraceful episode in his history. It is strange that the director of the mint Bhould decide to remove the face of the lady which adorns our silver dollar. She has always been very popular and her scciety is much sought after. The Republic contained an article yesterday headed "How to shake hands." The best information in this respect may be procured from the sleek candidate for political honors, Prince Albert Edward, England's future king, is said to be fond of tiger hunting in India. His experiences with the domestic tiger may have been lees exciting, but they are just now causing him endless trouble. St Louis in her preparations for her fall festivities cannot efford to forego her illuminations. No other feature has in the past met with such popular ity. Indeed it is doubtful whether, without the attendant illuminations, the fair and exposition, meritorious as they certainly are, would receive the one-tenth part of the attention they now do. The Columbia Herald comes with twenty-four pages of matter this week and certainly its claim to being the largest, neatest newspaper ever issued in Central Missouri is well founded. In make-up, it is finished in subject matter, it is excellent and editorially it is able and interesting. It reflects credit upon all connected with it and Columbia in her pride, should not .neglect one of its chief auxiliaries to .her advancement the Herald. James Gibson, one of the brightest and mo3t progressive of the younger members of the western democracy, is being mentioned es the prospective 'candidate tor gubernatorial honors in ihe next election. Mr. Gibson was the city attorney of Kansas City two terms, also occupied the responsible position of mayor of that city and is now judge of the circuit court of Jack son county. He is capable of filling any office and doubtless wju'd make a good chief executive. New York doubtless read the ac counts of the unveiling of the Grant monument at Glena, 111., with feel ings of envy. But then it is New York's turn to be envious. While a1 ring of real-estate speculators has been trying to make money out of the proposed Grant monument at Riverside park a Chicago citizen has accomplished what the entire public spirit of New York has been unable to do. It 13 a little curious that about the time a big lawsuit is to be tried in which any of Edison's patents are in volved, he manages to get himself in terviewed and reported at length in the newspapers as to some wouderful new discovery he is said to have made. No one supposes that this ef fort to attract attention to hi3 marvel ous genious is put forth with the view of creating favorable public sentiment or influencing courts, but the cornel dence has been remarked. Just now one of the most important, perhaps the most important, of all the cases that have ever been tried in the courts in which Edison is interested, is being heard, and the "Wizard' is out in lengthy talks about the new toy of clever mechanism. Probably no man has ever lived who, in popular esteem, was more versatile in inventions and attracted greater notoriety than Mr. Edison. And yet, among scientists and experts, it issaid, there is not an over-amount of confidence in his scien tific attainments or knowledge of eound mechanical principles. Some one dubbed him "the man of five bun dred patents and not a' single inven tion." It is to be hoped that the lecture in the interest of the ex-confederate home at Higginsville, which is to be given in this city on the night of the 13th, will be largely attended. The home is not charity, it is justice which has been too long delayed. The con federate soldier who, with no hope of reward save the victory of the cause he represented, went forth to battle and cid battle through many years of pain and starvation, and deprivation, and sickness, and wounds, which to day leave him helpless is a sacred charge and be should be cared for, just as the federal soldier has been cared for, save that the one belongs to the government, the other to the people, whom they represented so nob'y. That these latter understand this there is co doubt and they are nobly responding to the call made upon them, aided and abetted by those "ho long ago were their foes, but who now remember onlv that they were soldiers and by their bravery won a right to a haven of rest in their old age which is lighted by God's lamp of kindliness and justice and which else, would be indeed desolate. FLOWERS AT COMMENCEMENTS. At this season of the year com mencement exercises are taking place all over the land and while the Usual amount of really excellent work by the graduates, his not been wan t ing, vet there is one feature which should be checked before it becomes a public nuisance and that is, the be stowal of flowers. There h nothing more beautiful on earth than flowers ''God's smiles of tenderness" but even these may be made to lose their beauty when they are merely used for purposes of dis play as now carried to extremes at the school commencements. Not only is the simple tribute of love given but the very evident de sire to surpass all others is made man ifest in the immense floral pieces and baskets which are so profusely laid at the feet of the graduates. There baskets sometimes contain banana and other fruit beneath their fljral covering and then indeed, the offering becomes grotesque and to the imaginative mind, the graduate pre sents much the appearance, as she sits surrounded by her trophies, of a market woman surrounded by her wares. Indeed to a person of taste there is something absolutely disgusting iu the manner which is too often used to bring into prom inence the daughter or son of wealthy parents and the great con trast of the fljral offerings which are laid at the shrine of these and the son or daughter of those in the humbler walks of lite. Then too, thi3 con trast works an injustice, which is hard to remedy since the parents can ill afford the expense of an education for their children much less the showy commencement trappings, and feel it, too often, in cumbent upon them to buy floral offerings, lest their children be belittled in the eyes of the public. Certainly there should bo some thing done by the school authorities to put a stop to the floral displays, which have no element of good sense, taste or feeling, in them, but are merely arranged as an adulation which is calculated to reflect credit neither on the bestower of such adul ation or the recipient of it.

Stamford, Conn., June C Tbe J wife ot" William H. JSe-.bitt. a nromi- neut iew i ork contractor, her two sou3, aged two aud lour years, and her mother. Mrs. B:zier, have been staying at the Stamford House, two wet-ks pan. The Nesbitts formerly resided here. Yesterday evening, while Mrs. Nesbitt and her mother were in New York, Mr. Nesbiit ap peared and was shown to his children's room. A few mmures later Land lord Barlow saw a heck driving ofl. In it were the children, with the father and two men accompanying him, one a detective. They drove out of the State. The ladies on their return were greatly excited, and deuoucc-.d Nes bitt as a kidnapper. It has trans pited that the wife and children left Nesbitt because he turned his mother-in-law out of his New York house. The two women are in New York lo- king for Nesbitt and the children. He has sent hb wife a dispatch say ing they are safe. Tuesday morning Inspector Barnes received a telegram from Mrs. Ntsbitt requesting that the police watch the 8:30 evening twin on the New Haven road. The inspector referred the matter to the Twenty-third sub-station at the Grand Central depot. Iu the evening Mrs. Nesbitt, accompanied by Detective McMinn, watched the train, but the husband with the chil dren did not arrive. LIKELY TO GO THROUGH. Atchisok, June 6. Governor Humphrey and his family were at the Union depot a short time this morning on their way to Osborn, where they will spend Sunday the guests of State Superintendent of In surance McBride. Speaking of the probability of Chief Justice Horton's . 1 r . , . " acceptance oi me xeaerai position that has been tendered him, Governor Humphrey said that while it had not been definitely settled yet, he had no doubt that Judge Horton would tccept. The governor said he was cow in correspondence with Sen ator Plumb, who is in Washington, on the subject, and that there seemed to be nothing in the way of Presi dent Harrison delaying the appoint ment until some time in October, when it will be too late for the gov ernor to issue a proclamation for the eleciton to fill the vacancy that will be causea by tbe resignation ot Judge Hr.rton, thus throwing the election over until November, 1892. The new court will have to organ ize and give ninety days notice to the public before it can do any business. Four of the judges can do this, and Judge Horton, the fifth judge, can take his seat in time tor tne real work of the court. This, the governor in timated, is the programme, and there seems to be no doubt that the presi dent will adopt it. COMPETING WITH LABOR. St. Locis, June 6. Owen Miller, president of the Musicians Mutual Benefit Association, ha3 written a let ter to Redfield Prcctor, Secretary of War, A? king that tbe permission giv en the Jefferson barracks cavalry de pot band to furnish the musical Ercgramme during the racing season ere, be withdrawn.
