Some of tho MIssouriaus who aro seek
ing (itllco have prepared a little tabular
statement which they aro submitting
whenever the query Is raised, "What
has Missouri done for Republicanism?"
Their repy Ejimniarljid is in short as
1. At the election In 18S3 only tlvo
states In tho union cast inoro republican
votes than Missouri.
2. Missouri cast more republican votes
In 18SS than auy southern state cast
democratic votes (by southern stute is
meant 0110 that seceded) .
3. Missouri cast mare than half as
many republlcau voles In 1SSS ns all tho
New England stites combined (i)oo
number .of votos for Ilnntson cast lu
Missouri, 230,000; whole number of
votos cast for Harrison lu New EnglnuJ,

votes from 18S4 tolSSS, a larger per cent,
of gain tlian any other statu can show-
The cundensod argument In behalf of
Missouri's claim to considerable more
patrouago than sho has received up to
date Is being widely circulated by the
Mlssotulans, aud they hope It may provo
effective. They feel that tho adminis
