Attested :
Fred M. AVanger, Clerk of Probate,
(Contlnuod trom rage One)
ccutlng attorney must play politics,
unless ho Is blind to his own Interests.
I rcallrc that much of tlio criticism
tlint lino resulted while I hnvo been
prosecuting nttorncy has been duo to
this cry fact. I refused at all times
to allow nny criminal prosecution to
be handled or nffectcd In nny manner
on account of political matters grow
ing out of tho circumstances. I am
proud that I did thin becauso I
think It Is raising tho standard
of tho prosecuting attorney of
this county to n place that It has not
heretofore lately held. Tho prosecut
ing attorney must, to secure n con
lctlon, depend upon the assistance of
the clerl! of the circuit court, the
sheriff of the county nnd the Judge
of the circuit court.
Elected bj Polltlenl Parties
At this time each of these officers
are elected by polltlcil parties. It Is
natural tjiat these officers should
piny polities to sustain thdnselves In
that office. If they do not, great
masses of the people do not under
stand their attitude In holding office.
Admitting that you hnve these offi
cers free from all Influence, that they
handle nil of their duties without nny
attempt to affect n piosecution, jet,
the prosecuting attorney may be af
fected by several things that the aver
age man has never considered.
The selection of a Jurj In our coun
ty Is tal.cn from the body of tho
county No man, on account of his
likes or dislikes nbout a particular
law. Is declared to be Ineligible to sit
on a Jury on account of that fact. He
may believe that a particular law la
contrary to right, and jet he Is quali
fied to be one of the Jurors to be se
lected In a case. Of course, the man
who has such opinions against a law
oft times conceals them.
When a Jurj' Is selected out of tho
Jurj wheel, as the. law requites, tho
sheilff Is required to serve the par
ticular men that have been selected
by chance out of the Jury wheel. It
la ea'-j for the sheriff to fall to serve
a certain number of men and In this
waj- the standard of the Jurj' is low
ered for that particular week. Then,
after that Is done, these Jurors that
are served present excuses to tho
Judge of the court, quallfjlng the
Jurors. As n rule, the busy men of
tho community are the best class of
Jurors. Thcj- nro men who believe In
tho enforcement of law. who would
be the lcadets on a Jurj', and jet.
times without number, these men
have been excused from Juries, some
excuses sometimes very trivial Indeed.
The result has been that tho leader on
that particular Jurj' .was lacking, nnd
n Jurj' without some man of standing
nnd Influence to guide nnd control It
Is liable to render an unexpected ver
dict In a case.
Defendant Has the Advantage
Hut when It comes to selecting n
Jut j' In a case, under our law we are
so careful that the prosecuting attor
ney won't have any advantage that wo
allow the defendant twice as many
challenges as the stato has. In an
offense vvhete it is punishable with
death or Imprisonment in tho pen!-tcntlarj-,
not loss than life, the defen
dant has twenty challenges while the
Etate has eight. If the offense is
punishable by lmpilsonmcnt not l-s
than n number of jenis and no limit
to the duration of mch Imprisonment,
tho defendant has twelve nnd the
stato six challenges and In nil other
cases tho defendant has eight chal
lenges and the state four If jou
would see the result of this law In
operation come and sit In tho Jury
room, hear the examination of Juiors
nnd see tho defendant strike off tho
ablet, the best, tho strongest minded
men who bollevo In law enforcement,
from the Jury, the state only having a
chanco to strike off a few men who
nro affected by somo outside Influ
ence, which alwajs appears In every
case, then jou will understand that
tho Jurj- selected la not the result of
twelvo fair minded men selected from
j tho bodj' of tho countj-, but consists
oi men onen prejudiced against ttio
state, and who would refuso to re
turn a verdict, or If they returned
one at all, would render a verdict of
tho least possible punishment.
No Voice Was, Raised
The reco'd of our criminal court,
not only since I have,been prosecuting
nttornej-, but for a great number of
j cars, will show that all these things
that I have named have uf'ectcd the
prosecution of criminal case in Bu
chanan countj', nnd jet, no one has
raised a voice to correct or Improve
those conditions, though It was known
by everj fair minded man that crimi
nals were turned loose and tho law
brought Into disrespect on this ac
count. .
The press of this community owes
the prosecuting attorney the support
that no other officer ought to have.
He mutt deal with the most serious
problems of life, often handicapped
bj a knowledge of conditions that no
man can revallze until he has actually
sat In such a placo and heard tho
complaints presented to him. Yet.
ho Is criticized on every hand without
a voleo ever appearing anywhere giv
ing him support. Do jou know that
In tho two years that I have been
prosecuting attorney no paper In this
county has ever given a word of ap
preciation or no citizen, so far as I
know, has ever spoken ono kind word
of encouragement? What man, with
a continual dash of criticism against
him under such circumstances, would
keep his nerve and faithfully, honestly
and fairly enforce tho criminal law
against such conditions? So I hopo
your paper will glvo tho next prose
cuting attorney, Mr. Smith, all tho
assistance and approval possible.
Yours very truly,
rnnnY a. unuuAKEn.

mlttcd by tho democratic mnjorltj' in
cither tho senate or house during tho
session and for this reason It has been
ogt cod that onlj senators with past
experience and service in either the
houso or the sennto be made the pre
siding officers, floor lenders and com
mittee chairmen.
JemXTn(lc Speaker, llou-e
A spirited nnd therefore highly In
teresting contest is also on for the
speakership of the houso with Caper
M. Edwards of Dunklin countj-, Oak
Hunter of Randolph countj-, R. I
Haines of Saline countj-, G M Peters
of Clay countj, nnd Charles Sutton of
Rejnolds county In tho running, with
honors, nt the present moment, about
equally divided. Representatives Ed
wards and Hunter are probably cam
paigning harder for the gift than tho
other aspirants
The battle which is being waged bj'
Representative Edwards of Dunklin
county to land tho speakership Is
unique from the fact that It is featured
with new and original ideas, thereby
bestowing twang and snap to a enm
paig i which otheiwlse would be mo
notonous He has sent out fullj BOO
postal cards, especially printed to
make a hit, to cvlry democratic mem
ber of tho houso and to party leaders
of the state. On tho side reserved for
the communication is a portrait of the
contestant nnd the announcement, In
regular form, that he is a candidate
for the speakership, together with the
further Information, brlcflj- put to
make It more effective, that he was a
member of the house, Dunklin countj',
during both tho Fiftieth and Flftj
first session", and that this term will
bo his third. The two previous terms
give Edwards the parliamentary ex
perience on which ho bases his cam
paign Two lines in doggerel announce-
"Boost, My Brother, Boost with
zeal, to jour good Judgment I appeal."
Then comes tho declaration and
quoted maxim of: "The old-timers
had r pajlng- 'Preachln alnt never
over 'til they sing.' "
Hunter's Hnlc Hunt
Oak Hunter of Randolph Is as ac
tive In his campaign as Is Edwatds of
Dunklin His is an untiring subrosa
contest for the speakership Pince he Is
flooding the state with carefully type
written icqucstH fot support, each ap
peal going forth In full dignity In a
sealed envelope, carrjlng a two cent
stamp In this vvaj- It has become
known tp everj- democratic represen
tative, to nil partj- leaders and to all
democratic newspapers of Missouri
that Hunter is on a hale hunt for tho
big hcju'e glory of being spoaker. It
Is stated bj- his U lends that fifty-two

er In the house Out of 150 members
of tho house S3 aro democrats. 85
republican and two seats contested.
Other lioii't- Honors
From Maries county comes the In
formation that E. W Allison Is seek
ing tho honor of being speaker pro
tern of the next house. D. L. Bales, a
popular democratic printer-farmer of
Shannon countj who Is coming back
to serve a fourth term, Is being boost
ed for tho strenuous task of being tho
next party floor leader. Six jears of
active and hard service In the house
as representative from Shannon coun.
ty gives him tho necessary experience
and parliamentary nbilltj.
A woman seeks to become chaplain
of the house. Sho Is Mrs. Edward
James of Holdcn. Another announced
candidate for that place Is Rev. G A.
Hoffman of Bloomfleld.
It Is believed that Frank Armstrong,
a well known and Influential Cass
countj' newspaperman who was at the
head of the Democratic state publlelty
bureau during tho campaign of 1020,
will be made official reporter of the
W. Rufus Holllster. editor, publisher
and chief ownei of tho Jefferson City
Capital News and tho Missouri State
Journal, two of the loading demo
cratic newspnpor of tho state. Is be
ing suggested for secretary of the ii
ate. For jeara he was ptomlncrtt In
national democrat')' as wcre'nr for
the late United Statu tonitor JV '1' hi
J. Stone. In 1920 u seciaaVj bf '.no
executive committee of tho Democratic
National committee he acquired fur
ther prominence, That position put
him in close touch with former Presi
dent Woodrow Wilson, and James A.
Cox, tho 1920 democratlo presidential
nominee. Early in 1922 Holllster was
campaign manager for Breckinridge
Long of St. Louts in his race for the
democratlo nomination djorj Unltod
States senator. Holllster, being a
staunch and sterling democrat, as soon
as It became known that Sonator Reed
had been renominated unhesitatingly
declared for the party ticket from top
to bottom and from then on his two
papers as heartily supported Senator
Reed for re-election as It had favored
Long for tho democratic nomination
before tho primarj',
Man's Also a Candidate
R. E. L. Marrs, former chief clerk
of tho houso nnd secretary of the sen
nto In 1919, Is again a candidate for
secretary of tho senate. Ho is a
prominent and Influential democrat In
southwest Missouri In 1020 he made
tho race for tho democratic nomina
tion for stato auditor, only to be de
feated by Georgo A. Mlddlckamp, for
merly state treasurer, who Is now a
Kansas City banker.
Several other Important nnd many
minor positions In both the house and
tho senate' will be carefully doled out
bj- tho democratic majority One de
sliablo buttr; Ing place Is the official
icporter of the house with n salary of
J7 attached to make It worth while
A chief clerk Is olo to be elected. The
other berths paj from $3 50 to $5 a
d.ij Tho high cost of living has
grcatlj t educed the number of.ippll
cants for the places which pay the
smaller sums An army of i-teno-graphern
and elerks will be needed
and both branches of the general n
temblj will have many pages to ap
point. Secretaries of committees are
also to be chosen
Tim Birmingham of St James, who
was Missouri's fish nnd game com
missioner under Governor Fred D.
Gardner, Is candidate for sergcant-at-
atms of the senate. "William HIck,
a. Kansas City real estate man, who
served six terms of two jears each In
the house as a representative from
Jackson countj-, seeks the same
berth. Jackson L. Bcnsftn and Robert
A. Volker of Jefferson Cltj aro among
thoso slated for clerical appointments
In cither tho house or the senate.
Miss Victoria Walker of California,
and Miss Etta Lou Carter of Jeffei

positions. Volker Is a well known
Western Union telegraph operator
Contest for Offldal Printing
A warm contest Is on between the
two democratic dallies of Jeffeison
City, tho Demoeiat-Trlbu-ie and the
Capital News, to print tho dally pro
ceedings of the houso and senate The
successful paper does the printing
gratis but furnishes 350 copies of
each dally Iesuo for the use of the
members and offliialx of tho general
assembly at a cost of $33 per diem
During tho iccint primary campaign
tho Democrat-Tribune, owned and
edited bj- Joseph A. Goldman, was for
James A. Reed for United States sen
ator, carrjlng Jefferson City and
Cole county for that candidate by COO
Tho Capital News espoused the came
of Long After the prlmaty tho two
papers united on the. democratic tick,
et The tesult vvns that Senator Reed
carried Colo countv by ovci 1500, and
the remainder of the state ticket ran
close behind
It is stated that the contest for tho
official printing will be compromised
by giving tho senate portion to tho
Demoerat-Trlbuno and the house end
to tho Capital News. Editor Gold
man'.s friends have suggested this di
vision of tho patronage .and that the
pay be dllded If the sponsors of
tho Capital-News accept the com
promise the two Colo county fotces'

Business men
mltteo of American
gave out todaj- a letter written by
Otto It. Kahn to Senator Reed Smoot,
member of tho Debt Refunding Com
mission, In which tho banker offers
u plan vvherebj-. In his opinion. Amor.
lea can consistently aid toward re
lieving the European situation and at
tho same time meet tho sentiment of
the country which appears opposed to
tho cancellation of tho Allied Indebt
edness to tho U. S government. He
suggests practical means for effecting
a compromise between tho European
and American point of view and shows
how, without taking upon Itself the
obligations and "involvements" of the
League of Nations and without en
tangling Itself In the political affairs
of Eurppe, America can take her part
In helping In the solution of European
Ilie l!noril Plan
Of the 2 billion dollars, or there-
abouts which our government loaned
to the Allied nations after the Armi
stice, that portion, at least, as was not
applied to the settlement of war con
tracts here, or Is offset bj valid coun
ter claim is Intrinsically distinguish
ablo from tho balance of tho Allied
debt to u. It should bo promptly
put In the vv-nj- of repaj-ment with a
leasonable rato of Interest. Foi ln
stance, America might stipulate Inter.
est nt the rate of 3 per cent or 3 k
per cent, nnd nil annual sinking fund
of one per cent, beginning after, snj-,
five jears Tho Refunding Commis
sion ought to bo empowered, accord
ing to Its Judgment to postpono tho
beginning of interest pajment llkcvvl.se
for five yenis.
As to tho icmnlnlng 7 'I billion
dollars, or thcteabouts, there should
be no attempt to npplj tho same
formula to everj- countrj-. The Re
funding Commission should go thor
oughly Into tho economic and finan
cial and general situation of all coun
tries concerned nnd make a fair and
final settlement, subject to tho ap
proval of Congress.
Not Even On Et-fjlaiul
Even upon America's financially
most potent debtor. Great Britain,
she should not Impose the exceedingly
heavy burden of pajlng m per cent
Interest from tho start and redeeming
the principal within twenty-five years.
I would suggest In tho caae of that
country, as an Illustration, that there
bo paid an annual sinking fund- of
three-quarters of one per cent Such
a sinking fund, if Invested at the rate
of four pr cent, would extinguish
the debt in fort) -seven years In ad
dition to the sinking fund of three
quarters of one per cent, interest
should bo charged on the debt at the
rato of. say, 2 per cent for the first
period of eight years, 2 H per cent for
tho second. 3 per cent for the third.
3 St per eent for the fourth, 4 per cent
for tho fifth and 4i per cent for the
final seven jears' period.
Slmll ij- I'ormul.i fr Inuic
A similar formula might be appllell
tn the ease of France, making the
sinking fund one-half of one per cont
onlj', which, If Invested at tho rate of
4 per cent, would extinguish the debt
In fifty-six jears, and charge, a purelj
nominal rate of Interest, or perhaps
no Interebt at all, for the first eight
j oars' purlod. Tho ratos of Interest
for further periods might be made
even moro moderate than thoto sug
gested In the caso of England.
The question of tho feaslbllltj-, ac
ceptability nnd extent of "pajment In
kind" In lieu of cash, should also be
within the purview- of the commis
sion's Investigation sand recommenda
tions. All these, of course, are tho merest
tentative suggestions. Tho Refund
ing Commission would be able, after
Investigation of the pertinent facts,
nnd conference with tho representa
tives of the- nations concerned, to
evolve carefully elaborated formulae
to fit each particular oase.
Thero are no resolutions for the St.
Joseph mnn to mako this jear since
Votetead has made It unlawful.
