LP VOLUME at nONROE CITY, MISSOURI, APRIL 9. 1908 NUMBER a Cowherd's Platform Declaration of Principles From the Leading Candidate for Governor. Hon. Win. 8. Cowherd of Kan. sas City, candidate for the Dem ocratic nomination for governor has outlined the platform on which be will Beek official pre ferment, as follows: I believe in the fundamental 4jdnciplesoLJ;be Democratic party and expect to stand upon them in the campaign. The largest liberty to the in dividual, exercisine over him only such restraint as is neces sary for the Interest of the com munity, and to prevent him from interfering with the rights of others A recognition in every com munity of its right to regulate its own local affairs, wise econ omy in the expenditure of pub lic funds, and the taking no more in taxes from the pockets of the citizens than is necessary for the economical administra tion of the affairs of the state. Economy, however, does not mean parsimony. Missouri is one of the great states ot the Union, and as such must main tain her proper place in the march of progress. A liberal policy toward the cause of education from the pub lic school at the bottom to the university at the top, for on an intelligent constituency only can free government rest. The building and maintenance 'of gooft ioads, t bus 'keeping the farm always in touch' with the market, linking communities with each other, increasing the prosperity of all, and widening the horizon alike of inhabitants of country, and of city. Such supervision of corpora tions created by the state, as will prevent the issuance of watered and worthless stock, under the apparent sanction ot the law A regulation of the charges of public service corporations, along lines fair alike to the public and to those who have ' invested their money in such enterprises. The proper protection of la bor by just laws, based upon a recognition of the fact that the world is bettered as wages in crease and hours of labor are shortened and the conditions un der which men must work im proved. An equitable adjustment of the burden of taxation, to the end that the small property owner whose home is always visible to the tax gatherer, bears no more than bis fair share of such burdens. The promotion of manufactur ing throughout the state, in or der that a wider diversification of industries may bring greater assurances of prosperity. A thorough revision of the laws by a competent commision. A strict regulation of the liq uor traffic and enforcement of the laws in regard to the same, including the closing of the sa loon on Sunday. 1 believe the present laws uruviuius v his- strict regulation of the liquor traffic with local option where a majority of the community so desires, is the best solution of the liquor question, and the one under which the evils of intem perance are reduced to the min imum. It is ot Democratic ori gin, and follows Democratic principles. I believe in the strict enforce ment ot all laws without regard to any special fads or isms. I believe no man should be ap pointed to office unless bis hon esty and competency are un questioned, but in the making of appointments; I believe in a I fair recognition of all elements in the party, irforaer that har: mony may be restored and main tained. Believing in the principles of my party, I believe the success and maintainance of those prin ciples should be paramount to the ambitions of any individula. City Election. The vote in Monroe City Tuesday was the heaviest in years at a city election. Good order and good humor prevail ed, but both sides worked and the Democratic ticket won all offices. The vote by wards was as follows the first named being Democrat candidates, the sec ond being the Citizens candidates. ITF.WS FROM FARMERS Of Farmeri, For Farmers And Pertaining Ta Farmers. Oats..
