Uxdek the new tioanciat lav any town of less than "..000 may have a national bank, with a capital of 823.IKM. Hereto fore it required $30,000. The i.ew law also provides that notes fir circulation may be issued to the full amount of the. par value ot the bonds. He-e'ofnro it was only IX) per cent. Secretary Gage estimates that the new law may increase the circulation of national bank notes $303,000,000. This ought to be accepta ble to those who waul a greiilir volume of money. Gov. Stmmien ia denouncing trusts in connection with a desue to r-ecurethe renomination of one of his confidential friends to u state ollice. The Governor's resounding sentences may mean some thing to persons not acquainted with bin record. When, after weeks of dehbera tijti. be put bis Mguature to the bill consolidating the strict railroads of St Louis he identified himself with the biggest combine ever known in the stale. After an inspuction of the Gover nor's deeds in relation to trusts his words will rind a resting place in the waste basket. 1HE House judiciary committee ex pects to frame a bill dialing with trusts This is a wise determination. The He- publicans have acted on tins question with far more courage and intelligence, of course, than have the Democrats. Tea years ago the Republicans passed an anti-trust bill which was signed by President Harrison. That was the Iat est Congress until the one which came in with President McKinley in which the Republicans had control of all branches of the government. The Demc crats, when in power, did nothing against the trusts, and would do nothing now if they were in control. Belter things, however, ure expected of the Republi cans, and it would be wise to meet this expectation. A wisely drawn anti-trust law ought to be passed by Congress be fore the Philadelphia convention luteU three and a half months hence. An Arkansas congressman is of the opinion that the Gold Standard bill will drive the Republican party from power. His party thought the same thing when the public credit act was passed in 1S0!, anil tne resumption act was passed in lUio. His party thought the putting the Gold Standard in the Republican platform of 1S9G would have that elTect. But the opposite proved true. The Gold Standard means honesty and the major ity of the people nre honest. The Re publican party has always had the cour age of its convictions and has not hesi tated to legislate in the interest of sound finances. That is all the Gold Standard bill is. It settles the question of the measures of value so that there can be do misunderstanding, and provides for the floating of 2 per cent bonds to take up 1 per cent bond?, and makes a saving to the government in interest if the new bonds are exchanged for the old enes, of 823,000,000 atnually. This of itself is quite an item in fayor of the bill. Xo government on earth is tloating its pub lie debt at so low a rate of interest. It pays to do right. Orcanization brings about success A Republican club should be organized in every school district in the Slate of Missouri. The Republicans of Missouri are commencing to bestir themselyee. There are large and lively signs of awakening. It is a wholesome indica tion. Political events are moving rapid ly and the Republicans must be prepar ed and active. Xo single feature of cam paign work is moro productive of good results than the organization of clubs. A Republican club, well officered, hold ing frequent meetings, aggressive, earn est and industrious, is of unmeasurable service. Speaking by local orators or visitors, general discussion, canvasses of the precincts or districts come us a re sult of the club organization. New life is thus infused into the party, enthusi asm is given the workers and interest in the success of the party is created where before there was lukewarrunese or in difference. The Republicans throughout Missouri should take active and iruinsd iate steps looking toward the organiza tion, reorganization and enlivening of Republican clubs. Industrial Progress.

Under the lust Democratic admini- j tration our bcuds bearing not less than four per rent, interest were being sold through indicates to foreign investors. Today these bonds bearing from four to the per cent, are being refunded at two per cent, under the operation of the new nold staudi.nl law.

More than that. In the past few months, for the tirst time in our history, foreign governments hae become borrowers in this country. Recently Ruesia made u large loan on her bonds in Xew York and in the putt few weeks a large part of the new war loau jusl made by Eng land was taken by United States inves tors of capital. Under a Republican ad ministration a wonderful change ha? taken place. From being borrowers ot vast turns from abroad we have become independent and are today loaning of our surplus wealth to Europe. How this can be is explained tn part by such figures as those jusl published, showing that for the month of February our ex ports averaged $3,00i.000 a day, an in crease of 25 per cent, over any previous February in the country's history.

A Test of Sincerity. The insincerity of Democratic preten sions is illustrated by their performan ces in the house of representatives on the Porto Uican matter. On the day of the pa.sngeof the bill temporarily regu lating the tarilT relations between tha island and the United States they were rending the air with their shrieks in favor of the Porto Ricans and demand ing freedom of trade between that islan and the United States. The nest day the President sent to the house a niess nge proposing to return to the Porto Kicans every dollar that had been paid in duties collected on their products since the United States took possession or the island, and all that shall be eo collected in future, thus giving them practically what the Democrats had clamored for and a handsome lump sum of over 52,000.000 for immediate relief of their sufferings. Yet. behold those same Democrats who were demand ing this very Hung in principle, bending every energy to defeat it by speeches, by filibustering, by trickery of all sorts, by fair means or foul. Xo wonder the public refuses longer to accept the utterances of lead ers of such a party as einccre or worthy of serious consideration. Try Grain-O!

Wyatt, cashier of The Bank of Atchison county as fol lows: "You are advised that county treasur ers checks for tlie pavmcnt or ohliga tion- due from tho county are exempt from stamp lax, nut tne snoulU be en dorsed utKin the face of t'leni, 'drawn against public funds.' County warrants are exempt from taxation. This oilier understands that jury warrants, grand jurv warrants and witness warrants are in the form of cortilieates signed bv the clerk to the effect that the party named tnerein lias coming to mm lees lor a jpecilicd number of days attendance on court and mileage in an aggregate sum of dollars. In theso eases, if such certificates are presented fur payment lv the party to wliom tliev are given they are not subject to taxation. If, however, thev are assigned to a third person and bv such assignee are pn sented for payment, they become orders for the payment of money and require to he stamped at tlie rate or J cents each This office is not clear as to what vou mean bv school warrants. If such war rants are paid by the county treasurer ami are, in fart, warrants, they would be exempt from taxation, if, however, they are orders for warrants, tuey are taxa ble at the rate of 2 cents each, if assign ed to third persons. "To your inquiry," 'Is a party con siuereti a oroker who occasionally iiuys county warrants' you are advised that the Honorable Commissioner of Internal Revenue has ruled that the occasional purchase of such securities, would not constitute the party in question a brok er. However, if a person is known in the community in which he resides as 1 readv and willing at all limes to buv these securities or if he holds himself out by advertisement, he is liable for special tax as a broker at tho rate of 8-"0 per annum reckoning irom mo iirst uav of the month in which business is begun to June .iOth following.

Gl'ntos's Magazine: It is urged against the treaty tl at the Monroe doc trine will be eudangeieil unless the United Slates has hbsjlute control of tha canal both in war aud peace. The argument is weak. It sustained it would turn the Monroe doctrine into an ex treme imperialistic dogma rather than a principle of free American develop ment. That principle is eimply that no foreign power ehall interfere with the growth of free Democratic institutions in the western hemisphere. Just how the neutrality of the Nicaragua canal endangers that principle is hard to see. It will be located entirely on foreign territory, where we have no right to erect fortilications. Even if such right should be obtained it would be nearly impossible to prevent an enemy, by secret land operations, from ruining the canal at some vital point. On the other hand, should it ever become important for us to prevent an enemy's Heel from entering the canal we can do it by a squadron operating from a naval station say in Porto Rico, or, on the Pacific side, Hawaii. Xo important practical point could ba gained by insisting that we must have the right to open or shut this canal as we may choose. We will have the same opportunity of protecting the approaches to a neutral canal that we would have if the cao'il were exclus ively our own, while the rani! itself would remain safe. : Missouri.

Judge Craig rendered an important decision last week in the Maryville cir cuit court, in the case of the bondsmen of the late Henry Graves, Public Ad numstrator of Nodaway couuty, against the Xational Masonic Accident Associa tion, of DesMoiues, Iowa. Mr. Graves carried a policy for 3.000 in the com pany mentioned. The jmlicy provided. however, that the company's bv laws Ehould be regarded as part of the policy. and in them it was provided that in case the holder of the jlicy came to his death as a resultof the careless handling of firearms it should be worth but $1,000. Mr. Graves, having met death this way, ins wiuow accepted si.uw and gave a receipt in full It was decided bv the Public Administrator's bondsruen, how ever, that the company was liable for the policy's face, and to indemnify them for losses oc :asionel by her husband's oflicial acts, Mrs. ( Iraves made over her remaining rights to them, and they sued for tho remaining 1,000. Judge Craig decided that under the laws ot Missouri, a life insurance com pany is liable for the full face of a policy. whatever other provisions its by-laws may contain, and that its by-laws can not legally be accepted as a part of the policy, even though specifically defined as such in the Inxly of the policy itself, and the bondsmen were given a judg ment for $1,000. The case was immed iately appealed to the state supreme court. It is said that this is the first case ever tried in which the validity of the Missouri statute, which provides that a policy must state on its face the exact imount it is good for, was tested.
