Jekfersov City, May 23, 1800.
Editor Enterprise: Did it ever
o:cur to your mind how wondrously
kind the average democratic politi
cian, from congressman down to the
editor of a country paper becomes
towards the dear people and particu
larly the farmers at the eve of every
election? Did you ever notice the
remarkable zeal and the great solici
tude of these patriotic ( ?) dema--gogncs
for the welfare aud interests
of the laborer and agriculturist? How
sweet they are on the farmer?. How
they espouse the cause of the op
pressed and downtrodden igricultural
and laboring class when an election
is but a few months distant. But the
dear people and especially the farm
ers must be told and warned by these
disinterested and unselfish (?) poli
ticians and editors of the fearful
condition they arc in and the utter
ruin that stares them in the face.
Prejudices must ho stirred up and
appealed to by the fellows who arc
candidates for re-election, promises
must be made by these democratic
patriots to the farmer and the labor
er just before the election to be for
gotten as soon as the polls have
closed. Year after year the good
people will listen to the political ser
mons of those great democratic re
formers and when their conventions
meet they will instruct their delegates
for the same man who but two years
before has made the people some
solemn pledges and has shamelessly
broken tbcra. And is It not so?
What in the name of common sense
has the Hon. Richard P. Bland, con
gressman from this, the Eleventh
district of Missouri, ever done for
the interest of the laborer and agrl
eultuiistof this district? What bill
or measure has their champion of the
great silver kings of the west ever in
tioduccd in congress for the uirect
relief and betterment of the farmer
and laborer of this district? Nothing,
positively nothing, and yet the demo
cratic laborer and farmer in the
Eleventh congressional district will
go as a delegate to his county con
vcntlon and instruct the delegates to
the congressional convention to vote
for Dick Bland first, last and all
the time, to give this great patriot
and statesman another chance to leg'
lslate for the silver kings and stand
up in congress along side of Dockcry
to misrepresent his own state and
district before the representatives of
the American people. Such were the
scenes enacted in the house of rcpic
scntalives hut two weeks rgo. But
die honor, prosperity and greatness
of the State of Missouri which Blund
and Dockcry sought vainly to de
tract, was valiantly vindicated by the
Hon. Nathan Frank, a republican
congressman from Missouri. It will
not do for Dick Wand or any other
man to stand up in congress and tell
us that a teriible mortgage debt
is over a number of counties in this
district. I am in a position to know
Mr. Editor, and have it from an em
ployc of the office of the secretary of
state that, for instance, according to
the report of the recorder of deeds
of your county the nver.ige mortgage
indebtedness of Osage county during
the last seven or eight years docs not
exceed in any one year the sura of
$G0,000, I am also informed by the
same official that other counties
Capt. Jacob Stciuingcr, book-keeper
for the Dullo Milling company,
made up his cash Monday morning
for depositing in the bank. Ho had
checks to the amount of 3,800 and
a $100 hill, and after making out a
deposit ticket ho pinned them to
gether and placed them Inside of a
large-sized bank book, around which
ho put a rubber, and placing the
book and its contents in his right
hand outside coat pocket, started for
the First National bank. When ho
arrived there the bundle of checks
and thc"$100 were gone,.but the book
was still in the pocket. Captain
Stcinlngcr stopped only at one place,
the postofllcc, between the mill office
and the bank, and says that ho
walked only a short distance with but
ono person, and that was a well
known attorney of St. Louis to whom
suspicion would not for a moment
attach. Up to date nothing what
ever has offered itself as a solution to
the theft except the self-evident fact
that it was the work of an exceedingly
clever and light-Angered thief. The
banks were all notified to look out
for the stolen cheeks, a description
of which is found below :

Holt's Summit, $70.10, payable at

holding up the state which he, as one
of the democratic members of its con

made the assertion in congress thai
