WE ARE AUTHORIZED to an

City of Monroe.
The Two Methods.
There is a difference between
the methods of Reed and Polk
in ridding Missouri of boodlers.
Mr. Reed has the right plan and
be has the backbone and integ
rity to carry bis plan to suc
cessful consutnation, His plan
is to attack the professional
lobbyists and drive them out of
business and then the people
should do their part by seeing
to it that only honest men are
electe.l to the legislature. The
senators and representatives
are elected bv the people and
should they prove false, the
people have it in their power to
keep them from the legislature.
It is not so with the profession
al lobbyist. He is not elected
by the people, bis tenure of
Office only depends upon bow
much he can accomplish in cor
rupting legislation. The peo
pie do not elect him but be is
the agent of the big corpora
tions which have him employed
for the purpose of buying leg
islation in their interest. The
professional lobbyist is the
man that Jim Reed proposes to
drive out of the state when be
is governor and be will do it.
How about Mr. Polk? What
of bis plans? It is this. He
turns bis attention to the sena
tors and representatives which
is all right as far as it goes
and then be lets the profession
al lobbyists alone. The people
can within two years remove
any representative, and within
four years any senator but
the professions! rCoyist goes
on and on forever under Mr.
Folk's plan.
Every citizen should be, and
we believe is, willing to do his
pari of the real work for the
citv's development aud growth.
individually we are not so
strong and cannot do as effect
ive work as we could if we were
united. Por this reason the
citizens ot Monroe City aud the
surrounding country should or
ganize and thus be able to se
cure more labor employing in
stitutions. They are being lo
cated every day. Monroe City
is a goon location and we
should get them and we can if
we will organize aud go after
them. More labor employing
institutions here means work
for more men, more citizens in
our town, more money to spend
with our merchants and farmers
an increased valuation ot al
city property and of farm lands
in the vicinity and all will re
ceive a financial benefit. The
only way that we can secure
these labor employing institu
tions is to make an organized
effort. It is worth the effort
and time to organize it now
What say you feilow citizen?
Speak up Do n&t wait tor your
neighbor
Col. Bill Phelps, the king of
Kb jyist, is for Polk there is
no denying the fact and
against Reed because he has no
tears of Polk and does fear
Rt-ed. He knows that in the
past Reed has driven out lobby
ists and be k".ows that as Gov
ernor, Reed would drive the
lobbyists from the state capital.
War Newt as Condensed Day by Day.
New Chang Feb. 26. The
Japs have landed quite a torce
at Posiet Bay, 75 miles south of
Nlartivostock and have advanc
ed 25 miles to Munchen. The
Russian garrison has abandon-
doned the place, though heavi
ly entrenched, and retreated to
Viadivostock by the Japs
London. Feb. 26 Four old
vessels loaded with stone and
escorted by torpedo boats were
taken into the mouth of Port
Arthur harbor and sunk, almost
blocking channel to port like a
cork to a bottle. The Japanese
have thrown several more shells
into Port Arthur, doing little
damage.
Paris, Feb. 27. The French
Foreign Office has issued a
statement to the effect that
Corea not being recognised as a
nation of power and dignity, it
will not be necessary for France
to go to Russia's assistance
under the terms of the treaty.
Seoul, Feb. 27 Corea today
announced that she has joined
forces with Japan in making
war on Russia. She has placed
her army, 17,000 soldiers at the
disposal of the Mikado. Corea
has taken ibis step because
Japan guarantees ber freedom,
while it is believed Russia
would annex ber.

Why Should
Monroe Merchants Talk Dull Trade
When They Are Largely to
Blame
The old-line Democrats of
Missouri are the "machine"
which is going to nominate the
next Governor and our Republi
can friends will not be asked to
assist in making the nomination.
If there is a candidate for the
Democratic nomination for Gov
ernor who has not come out
squarely against boodling we
would be pleased to have bis
name.
Folk's speeches and the ac
tions of bis managers has been
such that bis gubernatoiial
prospects have gone glimmer-

liry tjrooas ana JNotion mer
chants should open their eyes
to a condition. "Home trade
and trade at home' is O. K.,
the home merchant will make it
that way.
In what the so-called country
merchant calls the Dull Season
is the time that Mail Order
houses in St. Louis and Chicago
get in their work by getting out
attractive advertising andplac
ing it in the hands of the ladies
in the smaller towns.
It would be folly for ls to
criticise the ladies or even ask
tbem not to want or buy the
pretty spring goods, trimmings
etc., when they are offered them
by outside nouses at tair prices
and they have a bunch of samp
les to select from. Especially
so when the home merchant is
lying low, keeping quiet letting
the city house get a large share
of the cream of the trade, while
they are waiting for wtat they
think or call "The Trade to
Open Up."
The foregoing statements are
caused by what we have seen at
the postoffice and express office
during the past week.
We know that trade lost that
way is gone forever, just like
water that passes the millwbeel,
it can never be used again.
Non advertising costs the
merchant $$ where it costs the
borne paper which tries to keep
the town to the front cents.
Of course, Chicago embalmed
beef enroute to Port Arthur is
contraband of war. It's as
deadly as ammunition, but the
Japs should be given the bunch
to let it proceed unmolested
