A raging blizzard In Kansas and a

Up to the last report the Hill and

While we don't especially care about
it, yet, if Cleveland is to be the next

to see him go into the canvass with
his eyes, nose and ears left. If the
light goes on he will have neither, and
the next picture will be all neck.
We are unlik'e some of our friends

be better for Missouri to have it

Thr howling country editor who
has fed his constituency with bom
bastic expletives on tho dangers of
decay of the republic, owing to the
election of a few republican pluto
crats to tho senate, Is holding his
breath for a brief moment, whllci the
democrats of Ohio are electing that
mushroom millionaire and political
rainbow-chaser, Calvin stock Jobber
Brlce, to the senate of tho United
States. The wuolo democratic pro
cession stops when a democrat is
found who possesses a quarter In his
own right.
His Grace, tho archbishop of Phil
adelphia, the Most Rev. P. G. Ryan,
D. D.. delivered a lecture at tlio ex
position music hall in St. Louis on
Sunday evening last to an audience
of -1000 people. The lecture was one
of those eloquent cfi'orts which has
long since caused him to be rccog'
nlzed as one of the most brilliant men
of this ago. His touching words on
meeting his old friends in St. Louis
were beautiful and heartfelt. The

Benj. F. Butlek has lost none of
his accustomed tartness in the use of
the Knglish language. Bishop Potter

Jackson as a "ruffian" which old

Senator Geo. G. Vest will cer
tainly introduce a bill in the U. S.
senate for an appropriation of at
least five hundred thousand dollars
for the Improvement of the "Osage
River," a stream reported navigable
for boats by U. S. engineers tho most
of the year for over three hundred
miles, and iuto the State of Kansas,

The Torrey bankrupt bill was In

author of this bill is Mr. Jay L.
Torrcy, an attorney of St. Louis
whose large mercantile practice
peculiarly fitted him for the prepara

much importance to tho mercantile
interests of this country. A perusal of

The beginning of tho now year
finds Uncle Sam's cash account in
pretty good shape. His Indebted
ness has been cut down over 880,
000,000 In a year, and instead of
being $2,500,000,000 as it was 25
years ago, is now a round billion.
Better than this, the Interest bearing
debt, which, in 18G5, was 52,381,
630,294, Is now below $850,000,000.
Still better than that, the interest
charge which, in 1AC5, was $150,
000,000 a year, Is now only $30,000,
000 annually. The debt reduction
of the year has been a little over
$81,000,000. This amount has been
used in purchase of bonds, and, al
though a high figure has been paid
on these bonds by reason of the fact
that they have several years yet to
rup, n very largo amount of prospect
ive Interest have been saved by this
transaction. There now remain but
$124,000,000 of the 4J per cent,
bonds outstanding. These are not
redeemable at par until September 1,
1891. When these arc out of the
way the only interest oearmg tleut
worth mentioning will be one lot of 4
per cent, bonds, redeemable in 1907.
These amount to $640,000,000. Ex.
The Montana republicans
democrats have each elected United
States senators. We hope the senate
of the United States will send the
whole outfit back to Montana with
notice that they are expected to settle
their own difficulties, and not inflict
the whole government of the United
States, with their petty quarrel.
The New York Sun asks : "Who
is responsible for the gradual wasting
aww of Missouri's fair and reliable
democratic majority?" The Kansas
C-.ty News, an Independent paper re
plies: "As near as we can make it
out It is either mildew or dry rot that
caused the calamity, and what's more
tho process shows few signs of abate
ment." '
Tne democratic press claims that
Congressman Neidringhaus is in
training for the governorship In 1892.
We elsewhore print a sensational
article regarding his intentions as
given out by a democratic orgin, the
Republic. The republicans will carry

The fact that there aro three (lib
tinct divisions of the democratic
party on the tariff question, and the
fact that there arc free traders in th
republican party shows the necessity
of a readjustment of either of th
parties, arc the main principals that
each arc contending for. In tin
democratic party they have the Mill
and Waterson free trade faction ; the
Randall tariff faction and the "tariff
for revenue only" faction. It would
seem to be impossible to concilia!
and keep these factions in the old
parties, and it is beginning to look as
if the democrat that cannot swallow
the "free trade" plank will hayo t
seek congenial company In some
other party. As for the free trad
republican we will reduce the tariff
and make it as comfortablo for him
as possible under existing circum

It will probably interest Missour
iaus to know that the statesman and
patriot Neidringhaus is full of the
belief that he is ordained by Provi
dence and tho grace of his fellow
countrymen to succeed David R.
Francis as governor of Missouri.
Neidringhaus, according to the re
ports that have reached hero during
the past three or four da3's, is now
squarely in the field. It Is under
stood that Filley hat promised him
tj)e next republican nomiualion for
governor and that ho is going into
the fight with his purso open and his ,
sleeves rolled up. Neidiinghaus
believes that money can perform any
thing in politics. He boasts with a
goad deal of pride that for the mod
erate expenditure of $08,000 he car
ried the city of St. Louis and elected
three republican congressmen in the
fall of 1888. He is rich ami ambitious.
He has plenty of money to spend,
and ho believes that the honor of
being governor of Missouri is worth
$250,000. He is willing to invest that
amount in tho enterprise. No matter
whether Filley gets tho postmaster-
ship or not, it is his intention to keep
his giip on the republican machine.
With his grip on the machine he can
name the next republican candidate
for governor, and it is understood
that Neidringhaus and himself have
already made an arrangement to the
effect that Neidringhaus is to be the
It is argued that Neidringhaus is
enough of a prohibitionist to satisfy
the truly good brethren iii the coun
try, and that tho German brewers and
saloon-keepers in the cities as a
matter of national pride will support
him solidly. A member of his family
telegraphed here within a few days
past that h-3 was already dubbed the
Bismarck of Missouri, and that this
indicated much. Of course, if Mr.
Filley is made postmaster the ma
chine will be strengthened, but in any
contingency Neidringhaus expects
that ho can capture tho nomination.
Farmer Wade will he a candidate
on a truly pious platform, and it is
understood that Maj. Warner has en
tered Into an offensive and defensive
alliance with Noble, the basis of
which is that Warner is to bo the
candidate for governor and Noblo is
to make the race for senator against
Mr. Vest.
Hints have been received hero of
an alliance between tho Clan-uo-Gacl
and Der tyga Pcrsonlichcn Frcihcit.
This means, of .course, a aorabjno be
tween Neideringhaus and Kernes. The
star-route statesman may be expected
to swing the Cian-na-Gacl all right,
while Neidringhaus will take care of
the German Personal Liberty League.
The basis fot' t'lls arrangement has
not yet been announced hc-rc, aii;'.
the faithful are anxious as to Its de
tails, Kernes and Filley being now
engaged in tho apparently agrceahlo
pastime of throttling each other. Of
course, Neidringhaus Is completely
under Fllley's wing, and Is faithful
to Filley's interests ; consequently the
report that Der LIga and the CI an
na-Gael had pooled Issues created
surprise, and some people doubt" tlio
poBslolllly of Its consummation.

deals can be arranged and trades con
