Under tho new constitutional amendment St. Joseph can now bond Itself for as much as $15,000,000 and within that limit we can take over nil tho public utility companies, and what man will object to It? Wo are paying It over and over In tho extor tionate rales charged and the taxes will not near equal tho saving to tho citizen In his annual expense account.

But By Oum and .Tee Ciosh are acting rather uppish with Perry about the matter, and Perry seems all a trem ble and seems to be wondering 'where am I at.' Why those fellows actual ly think they own Perry and ore con fidently expecting to tell him what to do. By Gum, you know, comes from a very shrewd and smooth as sociation.

Of course e democrats remember how well ho served ns fliTt nsslstant prosecuting nttorney. and ho showed then his roady nnd keen mind to quickly meet any situation, for Instance; when the breaking up of the Ice trust was put up to the prosecuting attorney and he referred the matter to his first as sistant, Mr. Otis, how Otis Immedi ately without the slightest hesitation suid ho would be glad to talk with any citizen about tho suppression of tho lee trust nnd invited Ihem to call on him provided they would call pre pared to make an affidavit. Why, yes, we remember that, but that cer tainly will be a mark of qualification for the high office of United States distilct attorney, but alas for all us democrats who like Merrill and hi it publican friends, too, tho bunch In charge of things here got In bad. and 1 o Is doomed If he Bhould try for llio honor.

Private employment ogencics fare none too particular about ascer taining whether their patrons will get work. A call comes in lor a certain number of men, that num jber ia cent without taking Into con sideration the possibilitly that sev eral other agencies may be filling the same demand. Re&ult is disap pointment for the men, n glut of uabor at one point with, very likely, tesultant shortage at another. I Canada's solution was to abolish private agencies and to establkh a ministration for he Is the one man who at the critical moment could anil did throw the nomination to llanlins. Tho money sent Into this state by Lowden was to bo used for Icsltlmato purposes but Llv MorKO and some others stuck It down In their pockets and tho others hollered like stuck pigs becauso they were not getting In on tho graft and bo tho uproar caus es! Lowden to lost) this otate and spoiled his chances, and he Ls not very friendly towards Missouri and especially towards tho set who took hLs money and misused It. By Clum, Jee Gosh, Chuck Deal and company mado tho biggest holler of anybody and the Fourth congressional district republicans are specially responsible for tho downfall of Lowden, but now that Lowden Is In so strong with the administration he will suro como back at them good and strong, and so our friend Merrill or any other republican who aspires to anjthtnfr outsldo of this particular locality will go up against this situation. Even when Harding camo to St. JiwpH this bunch was so afraid John Albus would get a look-In they overlooked extending the u.ual courtesies to n. Mont iTellly and his frlend.s from Kansas City, and John Albus stepped In and attended to that matter. Mr. rtcilly Is tho 'Woslcvrt manager for Harding, and already tho slalo for district attorney has been made up In Kansas City. John Allan Ls the St. Joseph boy who will after all hold strongest place with this ndmln.stra tlon In my humble judgment" "In tho tumult and eagerness of the majwes to vote against Uie demo crats nt tho reeent election the land slide got such an Impetus that It con tinued right on its way, carrying proposition No. 13, the prohibition enforcement net, by an unprecedent ed majority. Now thero are some boozo lovers among republicans who aro not quite so Jubilant over their landslido since tho prospects ot 44 per cent went glimmering with It, and tho democrats nro gaining some re cruits on tills account from unexpect ed quarters, whether wo doeervo It or not. "Already tho republicans nro say ing they will hnvo to raise, the taxoa Instead of reducing Uicm. Oh ho! hey hum! say; you yelling, hollering wlld-eyod tax dodgers, who were cuss ing tho democrats so lustily Just bo fore tho election and clamoring for a change in order to get your taxes re duced; now ain't that Just awful? You jumped from tho frying pan Into tho fire, didn't you? You'll bo yoll Ing for another change right away, no doubt, but you can't get any chanco for one for four yoars, nnd I hopo they will Just stick you good and plenty, ' darn you, for you voted for it, and ought to like It, and maybe IS PUTTING THE JOBLESS The sunerintendcnt of anv Pro vincial bureau is fully conversant with the employment situation in every other province. These bureaus receive applica tions from employers and em ployees. The superintendent's first task is to squa.ro tho local situation to fill the nooda of local employ ers and to provtde Jobs for local workers in their own district. If ho has not enough applicants on his list to fill local needs, he looks over tie liets of the nearest bureaus. Should bureau No. 2 show nn avail able supply of the particular labor wanted, lie gets in touch wtb No. 2 neAt time you will have sense enough to vote for an honent party who makes an honest campaign and no false proniLsts. "By Gum, Chuck Deal nnd Jeo Gosh aro In earnest, serious confer ence every time they can catch a time when Doc Crossland is not around, for Jerusalem Itathcr Alhe ls a trouble-somo article Rnd especial ly to Chuck Deal since ho rolled that gentleman for dekgato-at-largo to Chicago. Tho great worry with Chuck Deal now ls that he may not get In his iy as to the conduct of tho prosecuting attorney's office, and ho and By Gum together ore making Perry's dreams at night not very restful. I Just feel sorry for I'erry; his looks those days sure get my sympathy for old I'erry Is bucli a good fellow and Just don't want to have Chuck Deal soro nor does ho want to have any of his other repub lican friends hurt, and Jee Gosh stands by Just In tho offing llko a black cloud of disaster and I'erry suro Is In a bad fix. Course Perry ought to Just tell them to go to or- ah well Just tell them where to head In and get off at, so to speak, but doar old Perry Just don't have tho heart to do It, and so he Is up In the air and In suspense and wo will all Just have to endure It until ho comes down and gets his nerve. In tho meantime if my sugges-tlon to send Chuck Deo to Liberia could bo accepted It would help relievo the situation: but don't bui'd up any hopes on that, Terry, for you have to take your offico two months be fore Harding will have a chance to dlsposo of him and wo will have to Just worry along with him until thon. There aro several Sundays between now and then on which we will have to road his droollngs entitled 'Notes by the way," but I find they aro pret ty good to go to sleep on and I think wo can manago to get by for a while longer, and Just wait for Harding to get him out of our way." SAM THT3 COOK According to the Joplln Globe. "Uncle" Georgo Leva!, MUuouri'a last known veteran of the Mexican war, cast hia ballot In tho recent election In tho same precinct In Mokane, In which he has voted for the past sev onty yoars. Mr. Leval enlisted In the Voltlguesa regiment, a Net York unit In the Mexican war, In 1S47, when he was 12 years old, at White Sulphur Springs, Va, Ho eerved under Gen eral Scott and was shot throush the head, losing on eye, near Vera Cruz. Ho was born November 9, 1SI5, Ac cording to tho records of the adjutant general's offico ho Is tho only veteran of tho Mexican war now living In Mis souri, except one other, C&pU Jamea Ewlng of HopUlnM, , .

Ap plicants for work are placed ni near home as possible, unless they desire to go further afield. J That tho Bcrvicu is appreciated and successful is shown by results In tho four week period. Sept. 11th, to Oct. 2nd of this year, 89.205 np plkarrts usked for work, 53,701 em. ployeTs asked for workers and 33,995 appliciints were placed iij permanent employment besides many placed in casual jobs. A reat part of Canada's nriny has Len ro-estoblishcd in civil lifa throogh tho aid of this servico which has been a potent factor in tho economic readjustment cf tha Domirricn. from war conditions.

"Don't quote me as voting the dem ocratic ticket," Mr. Bryan Ls reported to have said to newspaper men at Kansas City. The Inference, of course, Is that Mr. Bryan will vote another ticket, though ho lacks the candor and moral courage to state what tick et ho will support. But It ls hardly supposable that Mr. Bryan's desertion will bo permanent. That is too much luck for the demo cratic party to hopo for. The man who led tho democratic party to three crushing defeats will bo hack again, becking tho honor a fourth time, and reading overybojy out of the party who presumes to question the divine right ot his leadership; not only read ing them out ot the party but brand ing them ns heretic, traitors, rone gadis and the corrupt tools ot Wall fctreet. How successful Mr. Bryan may be in his future selfish, personal designs cannot bo forecast. But many will remember his treachery to tile party to which ho owes Ills distinction and wealth, and his darker treachery to the noble cause that party lias cham pioned In the present campaign. That cause has been world peace, tho security ot human happiness, the brotherhood of man translated into fact. To that cause Mr. Bryan lias professionally beon devoted. Ho has advocated It for years, on a strict guarantee, to be sure, with an option al percentage of the receipts, but, still, with fervor, eloquence end pre sumable sincerity. Yet In the great hour for really serving that cause Mr. Bryan has never spoken a word. Adroit, determined and insatiably avaricious politician that ho Is, Mr. Bryan may again appear as the demo cratic standard bearer. If he does, now millions will take pleasure in carrying out tho Bryan formula "Don't quote us as voting the demo cratic ticket." St. LouU Port-Dispatch.
