In tho early days of tho county the business men. tax collectors nnd others. often made their collections in coon skins, beeswax and other productions.

Republican meetings in 18G0 and 1S90. The first Republican meeting held in Holt county, Missouri, was held in tho court house in 1800, and was ad dressed by Col. Gardenhire. Tho aud ience was small, composed then of more Democrats than Republicans, and a Tew days after a man that then was a Demo afat and slave owner, was asked how he liked Mr. Gardenhiro's speech, and his scply was, "I liked it well and ono reason was that 1 nave had some personal iciiuamtanco with Mr. Gardenhire and know him to be a tine man, nnd for that reason 1 liked it,and if Mr. Gardenhire set forth the true principles of the Republi can party, those principles will govern this nation lor tuty years to come; in fact for all timo to come," and knowing tho fe.v Republicans that were present then, nnd contrasting them with the number present Saturday, Aug. :!1, 1S'.K5, in tho court house, it would seem that the man's prophecy in 1S0 would be fulfilled and tho Republicans would govern this nation for years to come. and so may is. lie. in mo meeting, oai urday, Aug. 31, lS9ti, but one man was noticed that was in the meeting thirty six years ago. 1 Here may navo uoen more than one, but a now generation nas como upon the stage of nction since thon, and it is hopeful men of wisdom that will guide us safely through this stormy political sea to pence and prosperity.

Moore & Seeraan, Oregon, Mo. Tho absolutely sure way to vanquish tho free silverites is by supporting the Republican ticket and thus administer to the currency dobasers and repudia tionists a defeat so decisive and over whelming that no such financial heresy will appear in American politics again for ut least a generation. Brooklyn Eagle (Den). Tho Republican party proposes to make no change in the money system. The platform adopted at St. Louis in sists that tho present standard bo main tained until bimetallism can bo haduy a sensible course by international agreement, which tho party pledges itself to bring about. Tho only change proposed is made by tho free silverites which will have the effect of placing the country upon a silver basis instead of n gold basis. The ladies aid society of the Forbes M. E. church are workers indeed. The society is composed of twenty members' and they have labored earnestly to se cure funds to equip their new church, which was dedicated on Sunday last, August 0th, 189G. They succeeded in various ways to raise sufficient means to furnish the church with lamps, carpet and chairs, nnd they are seemingly as proud of this tact, as u youngster would be on getting his first pair of boots red topped ones at that. The presentation of the credit, the good faith, the honor, and prosperity of the United States transcends all party interests. The hope of the friends of honesty rests with the Republican can didate. Either he or tho Anarchist can didate will bo tho next president. Whether there is to be a genuine Demo cratic candidate in the field or not, the good wishes and hopos of most Demo crats will go with Major McKmley. He is not fighting Democrats and tariff for revenue only men now; he is fighting Populists and Anarcmst8,silver maniacs, men seeking, consciously or uncon sciously, n financial and social revolu tion.

If gold has appreciated in value, as the free silverites claim, it is equally true that interest rates havo fallen, nnd so tho borrowers of money have been more benefited than tho lenders of it. G.

They have given them selves the titlo of "Tho National Demo cratic Party;" the Chicago end, they call 1'opuiist-Democratic. All gnod Republicans are in favor of a protective tariff, of course; but just now they nro moro in favor of tho kind of money without which no kind of a tnritt would bring prosperity. Tho Re publican ticket is composed of just that Kind ot Kcputiiicans. The Holt county Republicans havo placed in tho field a splendid ticket. It is headed by Judge S. F. O'Fallon for representative, an ablo lawyer and n fear less, conscientious man. That he will bo elected there is no question. The Republicans everywhere should put up such men for the legislature as Judge O rahon. bt. Joseph Herald. -If a man molts down a gold dollar, he can sell the inotal for 100 cents, nnd no government is required to be behind t; but if he melts down n silver dollnr, ho can sell the metal for only about 53 And yet the free coiners insist that tho country should be Hooded with the 3T cent dollars to pay 100 cent debts nnd wages. We hear a good deal from the free silver orators about "the poor man's dollar," but as a matter of fact tho poor man is entitled to a dollar that is ns good as the dollar of the rich, and that is just what tho Republican party and tho candidates upon tho Republican ticket, national, s'.ate, congressional and county aro contending for.
