Tin: republicans might hold their
state convention in Jefferson City
this year for .a change.

makes a wondeilul change in the ap

aggravating typographical errors ap

The people have had twenty years
of democratic misrule in Missouri,
and have decided to try a change.
A good candidate could be elected
to the legislature by the republicans
this year and that will help knock

credit to the Minnesota climate.
M. K. McGitATit is quite a joker,
in fact, lie gets so funny occasionally
that he finds himself kicked -into the
street. As Mack is the only man that
enjoys his jokes it is a little dilllcult
to see where tho pleasure comes in.
Tm: republicans arc very well sat
isfied over the result of the city elec
tion. The democrats managed to di
vido the honors by calling and run
ning "Independent" candidates. Im
mediately after the election tho "in
dependent" is transformed into n
moss back democrat, and the result
Is agicat democratic victory. Ha, ha.
li' Mr. Schultc was running against
Gilliam for the short term was he not
elected? It would seem that the race
between Tanner and Urandenbcrgcr,
being for the long term, it will have
to be settled between them or by a
new election, as to who was elected.
Tanner wa3 the nominee for the long
term, and Schultc for the short term,
and were voted for accordingly.
Tin: cyclone that swept over Louis
ville, Ky., was one of the most dis
tructivc in years. It seemed that
nothing had the strength to withstand
its fury. Tho loss to property will
i tin into the millions and the I033 of
life reaches into the hundreds. The
damages done in oilier parts of the
couritrv were also very great, and
much suffering has been caused to
the unfortunate people who were liv
ing on the line of its course.

The democratic party will prob

The farmers have decided to have
(something to say in politics in Mis

be a bad year for democrats.

laical "worker" and ward "hummer"

Ox the first day of April Judge
Stampfli took charge of the postollicc
and it is to be hoped that the Judge
will remain at the helm at least eight
years. Indeed, the probabilities are
that for at le'ist the next eight years
the national government will be in
republican bauds. The four years of
democratic rule demonstrated the
utter incapacity of that parly to con
duct national affairs, and the pcop'c
iill not forget it mi quickly as to re
turn them to power within oigli
years, and possibby not fur twenty
live ycais. Judge S'amptli has al
ways been t'rong with the p: rly, and
we belli ve that his clllcient manage
ment of the postodice will make him
still stronger with the people. His
appointments are good and will meet
with the general approval of the
patrons of tho cilice and the party.
The Rr.rcni.iCAX has been doing all
in its power to pull Mr. Fred Ilulule
into a good place, but tho evil effects
of the support given inm by the
Tribune seems to have neutralized
all efforts in his behalf. Fred says
he is unaware of any sin committed
that should have cursed his declining
days with tho support of the Tribune
and tho rest of bis life will be de
voted to purging himself of the night
mare of its support. He lias fought
ai.d bled on the battlefield ; he
wa3 for three days unaware that he
was in Ibis mundane sphere, and he
lias suffered the torments of a thou
sand deaths, but all of that was as
nothing compared with this serpents
sting. Why it should sule'tt him, an
honest, inoffensive, soldier, for its
target, lie does not know.
whenever thoy think they can get
along without tlicm. Not one can bo
found holding even a, clerkship at the
Capital. Not one can be found among
Gov. Francis' appointees. Perhaps
the German democrat may conclude
about election lime that ho has no
use for the democratic party.
The treasurer of Maryland has
been added to the noble army of
democratic defaulting stato treasur
ers. The pyramid grows larger-and
larger. It now stands as follows :
What stronger argument could bo
made against the continuation of
democratic supremacy in Missouri?
What stronger proof do you want of
lemocratic incapacity? It Bhould
bo sulllcicnl to satisfy every voter in
Missouri that a change is absolutely
necessary for the good of tho people
who pay taxes to support the stato
The arrest of Noland puts one of
ficial delinquent in the hands of the
law to be punished for a" high crime.
Nobody dares to ask that anything
less than the full penalty of the law
shall be meted out to liim according
to the degree of his guilt.
Rut it must be set down to his
credit that he voluntarily paused in
bis criminal career, aud that ho vol
untarily made known the amount of
his embezzlement to a governor and
auditor who had been criminally neg
ligent of their duties, and who, but
for the warning lie gave them, might
have continued to disregard their
sworn duly until he had completely
gutted" the treasury.
On the 18th day of April, 1880,
Gov. Francis carefully considered
and approved a statute with an emer
gency clause pulling it in force from
the moment he approved it, and
which made it las-duty to carefully
compare monthly reports from the
auditor, the treasurer and the various
depositories of stato money, showing
the amounts received, the amounts
paid out, the warrants issued by the
auditor, etc. Heavy, penalties were
imposed on the depositories, the
treasurer and the auditor for failing
to transmit the3e reports in writing,
Verified by oatli to the governor, and
the law commanded him to compaic
them and ascertain without delay
whether the treasurer had deposited
the money coming into his keeping
at the proper dates, and whether lie
had drawn or paid out only such
sums is were equivolent to warrants
signed by the auditor. The law
further made it tho duty of the gov
ernor to suspend either the auditor,
or treasurer and take possession of his
oillce on bis failing to make these re
ports on or before the S'.h day of
Vet from April to March the gov
ernor ignored this new law bearing
his own signature, and the auditor
and treasurer aud depositories all
disobeyed it with lii3 consent, while
rumors were curicnt that Noland was
canyiug as treasurer a shortage of
Sl',()(j0 in ilia accounts as first clerk
Is it fair under these circumstan
ces to make Noland the scapegoat of
two other delinquent olllcials and to
punish him alone for the delinquen
cies for all three? Should a just
public opinion give the governor the
whole credit of timely discovery and
prompt action in the matter of this
defalcation, when ho should have dis
covered a deficit ten months earlier
if he had only done his sworn duty?
The fact is that month after month he
had wilfully failed to perform nn
ollkial duty which no faithful gov
ernor and good business nun would
have neglected. When Noland got
tired of trying to get even at poker
lie had to send ids attorney to hunt
up the governor in New York and to
tell him there about a deficit which
tho governor would have discoveicd
last May if he had not wilfully made
n dead letter of a law he had just
signed. Fost-Dispateh, (Dem.)
