Lesueur, who has lieen sec retary of state for twelve y eats, and is now editor of the Kansas Citv Times, had a two column article in his paper of last Sunday in favor of a constitutional convention, nc noius mere is an im perative need for a new.onstitution for Missouri, and especially that the need exists in St. Louis and Kansas Citv. His article is a strong one and coming from a man of such wide experience it is entitled to much weight. The great est objection to holding a constitutional convention is the expense, and yet, con sidering that the present constitution of the state was adopted a quarter of a century ago, or more, it might be the most practical way of getting some needed changes in the organic" law of the state. At any rate the discussion ot the subject, pro and con, is in order. A characteristic of Missouri people is that they like to be showed, you know. Nodaway Democrat.
