W. J. ROUSE, Editor. It. P. BtXSON, City Editor. m m us $I.OO PER VfcAK RatlNd Mtlm pot office at Monroe City, Mo. hh KCTonit i'laKS matter. THURSDAY. OCT. 81. 1901. Missouri has been damaged millions of dollars by Globe Democrat lies. The Pillppinoei are as mucli entitled to their liberty as is any citizen of the United State-, entitled to his liberty. In America the men who are elected to offlice are the ser vants of the people and not the rulers over the people. It is a Republican principle to protect the poor down trod den millionaires and let the people lookout for themselves. Equal rights to all and speci al privileges to none is what Democracy stands for. Can there be any objection to such doctrine. There is no more reason why ship owners should be paid a subsidy than why farmers, mer chants or any other class of citizens sliou'd be paid a sub sidy. The Paris Appeal lias entered its 84th year. For more than 28 years it has been under the present management and they have made it one of the lead ing papers of Northeast Mis souri. The DEMOCRAT wishes that the present management may continue to make the Ap peal a first class newspaper for 2K years more. In addition to this statement, Mr. Schwab called the atten tion of Mr. Lawrence to the fact that his steel workers got double the wages paid the Brit ish workmen in the same line. The steel trust charges Amer icans from $2.00 to 27.00 a ton According to Mr. Law rence the steel trust could, and the inference is that it would, sell steel in England for 50 pel ton which is about 10.00 les than the trust charges the American consumer and which is also $2.50 per ton less than the P2nglish manufacturers charge the English consumer Such figures as these speak for themselves. They are. however not a new variety of figures to tile American people. It is strange that the people have not long ago awak ened to the Imposition that has been put upon them. The Commoner.

Our Republican friends talk about tiie United States having become a World Power as though it was a recent occur rence For over a hundred years the United States has been a world power. It was made so by such men as Wash ington, Jefferson and their fel low patriots when they de clared certain principles -to be ight and made the people the rulers of the country. Secretary of State Sam B. Cook has issued his first num ber of the "Official Manual of the State of Missouri, T.iOl-l-02,'! and it compares favora bly with all previous editions issued by his predecessors This is the most valuable pub lication issued by the State. The most reliable information is given in the book. Sam B. Cook may well be proud of this ed.ition. but then he has a way of doiug things as they should be done in all the various de partments of his office. Joseph Lawrence, a member of parliament, recently visited j the United States and on his re turn to Engl. Mid made an inter esting report to the Newport Chamber ot Commerce The I Springtield (Mass.) Republican 6ays Mr. Lawrence told. his an dience that Charles M. Schwab assured him that the steel trust could deliver steel billets in England for 10.50 per ton, whereas the lowest price for which Britisli manufacturers could make them was $19 00. Mr. Schwab also informed him, Mr. Lawrence said, that, when the trust bad completed certain ocean transportation arrange ments now pending, the Ameri can price would be still lower. The Independent.

The rapid increase in the ne; gro vote in Indiana is signifi cant The fact that during the last five years the increase in the negro vote -has exceeded that ot the white by almost 5 per cent can only be accounted tor by the supposition that the negroes are coming to this state from the South. It is very sug gestive that the southern ne groes never migrate to Indiana in such numbers as just prev ious to an election. Is there any natural reason for this? In this city we have negroes who have proven themselves worthy citizens of the community but are the average southern negro emigrants especially desirable? Indianapolis (Ind ) Sentinel.

Constantinople, Oct., 2H, Spencer Eddy, secretary of the United States Legation here, and W. W. Peet. treasurer of the American mission at Con stantinople, had a long confer ence on the subject of Miss Stone to day. The information from tiie missionaries who are near the brigand' retreat is far from satisfactory. They Wnilt .Monopoly. (From The Philadelphia Times. J Many of the protectionists now do not want protection. They want monopoly. But a sense of justice still animates the American nation, and this monopoly which they now hold under legal guarantee cannot be enjoyed forever with the consent of the iovers of honesty and fair play who are polled every two years for their judg ment in regard to great public questions. Playing fast and loose with the tariff issue means what Mr. Kasson says it means "the fatal overthrow of the principle of protection" at the next election. His Speech to the Negro Raleigh, N. C , Oct. 28. Gov ernor Aycock opened the negro state fair to day in an address .11 which he urged the negroes to build up society among them selves, founded on culture, in telligence and virtues. In the course of the address he refer red to President Roosevelt din ing Booker T. Washington and said to the negroes that their best friends lived in the South. He told them ttiey did not need leconition by the President, as it would avail nothing in the South. He said: The law which separates you from the white people in the state socially has been and al was will be inexorable, and it need not concern you 01 me whether the law is violated elsewhere. It never will be violated in the South. Its vio lation would be to your destruc tion as well as to the injury of the whites." He pledged the best offorts of the whites to aid the negro, but told them that social equality was an idle dream. In reply Dr. C. H. King, a negro minister of the Metho dist church, said thai thu lie groes did not want social eqval ity, that neither he nor his peo pie wanted to sit down at the dinner table of the whites, and that they were not in spmpa tey with any such idea. CzolgoMz Kxecuted. Auburn. Oct. 29. At 7:12::iO this morning Leon F. Czolgosz. the niurdurer of McKinley, paid the life penalty for his crime in the electric chair at Auburn j prison. He was given three contacts of electricity before he was li 1 nally pronounced dead. Czolgosz made a brief speech j in the chair and said he was not I sorry for what he had done. He j expressed regret that he ha i I not seen his father. Half an ; hour before the execution of the prisoner he sent lor the super intendent and warden and said: "I want to make a statement before you kill ine. I want to make it before a lot of people present. " 'You cannot," said the super intendent. Then I won't talk at all." said the prisoner sullenly. He changed his resolution, however, when in the chamber of deatli. The murderer did not break down. He showed no particular sign of fear. As the guards were strapping him into the chair lie said: "I killed the president because he was an enemy of good people, of good working people. I am not sorry for my crime, but I am awfully sorry I could not see my father. Naturally, almost the entire attention of the physicians as signed to hold the autopsy was directed toward discovering, if possible, whether the assassin was in any way mentally ir responsible. The autopsy was conducted by Doctor Carlos F. MacDonald, E. A. Spitzka and Prison Physican Gerin. The top of the head was sawed off through the thickest part of the skull, which was found in be of normal thickness, and it was the unanimous opinion al ter a microscopical examination that the brain was slightly above normal. This demon strated to the entire satisfac tion of the physicians that in no way was Czolgosz's mental condition, except as it migh. have been perverted, respo 1 sible for the crime. The autopsy was completed shortly before noon, when the surgeons issued a statement in part as ltd lows: The autopsy occupied over three hours and embraced the Careful examination of al I tie lily org. ins. including 1 n . n .1 in.

A fairly gi.od audience was present to appre ciate the excellent program. Certainly the Brooklyn was in the Santiago fight. Admir al Schley says (and it has not been contradicted) "A record of hits received by the enemy showed that H6 per cent of the hits scored by the American fleet came from guns on the Brooklyn. The Brooklyn re ceived 30 out of the 42 bits from the Spanish -fleet." Power Found Guilty. Georgetown, Ivy., Oct. 28. The second trial of Caleb Pow ers for t he murder ol Governor Goebel resulted in a verdict of guilty. The jury returned its verdict after a deliberation lasting less than an hour. The penalty was fixed at imprison ment for life. The arguments Saturday were concluded shortly befoie 2 o' clock. After brief instructions from the court the jury filed out at 2:21, returning a few min utes after I! o'clock. The court room was packed with people trom this and ad joining counties. Powers was hopeful of acquittal and said he would not be convicted on the evidence presented. He was greatly affected upon hear ing the verdict. The shooting of Win. Goebel in January, 1899. was the cul mination of on of the most mysterious pl;ts in the history ot Kentucky. At that time William S. Tay lor, who had been the Republi can nominee at a previous elec tion, htld the governor's office at Frankfort. Goebel. the Democratic aspirant, asserted that Taylor hadi been seated by fraud. The state capital wits throng ed with partisans of both fac tions. Fight was in the air. Men walked the streets with their hands at their pistol pock ets. The contested election case was being heard by the legis lature, and as Goebel. accom panied by Colonel Jack Chinn, was on his way to the state htU-e, a rifle shot rang out. Goebel fell to the walk mortal ly wounded. It was proven that the assassin was conceled in tiie offices of the secretary of state. After lingering a few days, Goebel died, but in the meantime he had been sworn in as governor. Many arrests were made and a number of convictions fol lowed. Taylor fled to Indiana and has not dared to return to Kentucky. The present trial is the final one resulting from the assassin ation. At its close women arose and kissed Powers, who was convicted lor the second time and yiven a life sentence.
