THE STATH REPUBLICAN.
s . i VOLUME XXIV. JEFFERSON OITY, COLElJNTY, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 1893. NUMBER 10. MISSOURI LEGISLATURE The house passed a measure In regard to aliens, and to restrict their rights to acquire and hold real estate. The bill was Introduced early In the session by Dr. Ohoate, of Bates county, and It encountered rough weather at every stage of progress, from tho time It left the Judiciary committee, with an unfav orable report down to tho last roll call that gave It the sanction of mnro than a constitutional majority of the members of the house. The bill provides that a non-resident alien, firm of aliens, or corporation Incor porated under the laws of any foreign country, shall not be capable of acquiring title to or holding any land or real estate In thls-state, by descent, devise, purchase or other wise, except that the heirs of aliens, who havo heretofore acquired lands In this state under the laws thereof, may take such lands by devise, or descent, and hold the samo for the space of three years and no longer, it such alien at the tlmo of so requiring such landa.ls of the age of 21 years; and if not 21 years of age, then for the term of five years from the tlmo of acquiring such land; and if, at the end of the time herein limited, such lands no acquired by such alien heirs, have not been sold to bona-fldo purcnasera for value, or such alien heirs havo not become actual residents of this State, this state, the samo shall revert and escheat to the State of Missouri. Tho board Is to be non-partisan, and consist of flvo members, to be ap pointed by the governor, for five years. Members of tho board must be praotlcal embalmers, and experi enced In the care and disposition of dead human bodies. It Is made the duty of tbo board to proscribe a standard of proficiency as to the qualifications and fitness of those engaging in the practice of embalm ing. After Septembor 1, 18D5, every person now engaged or desiring to engage in the profession of embalm ing, shall make written application to the hoard for a license, and If gran tod, must pay a fee of $0 there for. License must bo ronewod annually, and the renewal feo is fixed at $2. Any person practicing embalming without a llconse will incur a fine of from $50 to $100. The capital removal resolution prepared by the. St. Louis Real Estate Exchange and the citizens of St. Louis county, was called up by Mr. Wurdeman who mado a brief speech In Its favor. Mr. Morton also favored It. Messrs. Yeater, Qoodykoonts, Gray, Seaber, Tunnell and others argued that it would not be policy to submit two capital re moval rcsolntlons,astho people would become confused. The debate lasted on hour, and when the roll was called, only Messrs. Morton and Wurdeman voted for it; while twenty-six senators voted against It. The attitude of the senate on the capital removal question Is hard to fiithnm. With tliA nlnrrln nrrnntlnn Minor aliens actually residing In the iof Mf Wordem8n overy Benator who voted for the Sedalla resolution United States may acquire title to land in this state by purchase, and hold tho same of a term of bIx years after they might under the naturali zation laws of the United States, have declared their intentions to becomo citizens of the United States, and If, at the expiration of said term of six years, said aliens have not become citizens of the United States, the lands so acquired by them by purchase shall revert and CBcheat to the state. In the Bonate Senator KennUh's bill taxing property and stock of corporations on assessed valuation of two-thirds of the actual valuo was passed.

' The committee on InsnranCo re ported unfavorably Dr. Tubbs' house bill cutting the salary of the state Insurance commissioner from $3,000 to $2,600. It was indefinitely postponed. .1 life- If voted against the St. Louis county measure It Is not denied that the St. Louis proposition Is Infinitely better than that of Sedalla. It has been repeatedly charged by members of the legislature that a covered wagon can be driven through the Sedalla resolution, and under the most liberal interpretation the state could not recover over $200,000 In exchange for a loss of millions. St. Louis county offered fifty acres of land, superior buildings and security for $2,000,000. From a business standpoint, there Is no comparison between the two propositions. In tho house Mr. Blttinger's bill appropriating $12,000 for the pur chase of statues of Thomas II. lien ton and Francis P. Blair was read third time and passed. Senator Gray's bill empowering cities to Impose a license tax on dealers In cigarettes was taken up under suspension of tho rules and passed.

It also Con tained a provision requiring trolley wires to bo strung 20 feet above railroad grade at crossing, and em powered railroads to reraovo such wires when of less height than stated. This feature of tho bill Is what tho governor objected to, because it sought to confer.too much arbitrary power on the railroads. There is some talk of attempting to pass the bill over the veto..

In the opinion of Mr. Tubbs, the adjutant general's clerk is paid too much salary $1,500 a year. This view was not concurred In by the other two members of the committee, Messrs.

No person, by himself, or another, shall sell or offer for sale, any substance designed as a substitute for butter under the pretense that the same is butter. The penalties range frot) $50 to $100 for tho first offense to $500 or six months' Imprisonment for subse quent offenses.

All the bills then pending relating to g.imo and Ilsh wero taken inder consider ation, and aftor much work and numerous conferences, a general bill was formulated. It passed tho house and passed tho senato and will bo the law of the land for the next tivo yoars, if not longer. The bill Is too lengtt. for publication, but the following synopsis gives all the Im portant features: It Is unlawful to kill a deer under one year of age and' for five, years it will be unlawful ill i mi 1 i otwcen'Octrtber 1 and Janu ary 1. The killing of wild song and Insectivorous blrdu or the destruction of their nests at any time Is prohib ited. Wild turkey, prairie chicken, pheasants and quail can be klllod between November 1 and Jnnuarj 1, and wood c(ck, turtle dove, meadow lark and plover between August 1 and January 1. Tho trapping or netting of such game at any Bsnron is unlawful. The killing of wild duck between April 1 and October 1 is forLidden, as is also tho killing of ducks and geese between Bunset and sunrise, or by means of cxplonlvcs. In this latter provision an exception Is made In favor of a person killing on his own premises. Tho fish law pro. titbits the placing of nets at the mouths of streams, and in fact the use ot any fish net or trap except a minnow seine not exceeding fifteen feet in length, con monly used by fisherman for procuring small fish (or bait. This law does not apply to private ponds or roservolrs. Tho law does not, howevor, repeal a formor law making It a felony to kill Ilsh with dynamite and similar high explosives or poisons. An infraction of either tho game or tho llih law Incurs a fine of from $10 to $50. The ofTko of game and ilsh warden Is created, who shall be appointed by the govtrnor to serve for two years. It is his duty to see that the game and tlih laws aie btrictly enforced and offenders prosecuted, and that unlawful devices for tho destruction of fish and game are summarily destrojod. Tho warden is empowered to appoint deputies, and the Idea Is that he will deputize numerous township constables in vicinities whore the law is most likely to be violated. The warden Is to serve without compensation. IN OUR OWN STATE. In the senate tho house bill allow ing coal miners a check weigher at their own expense was passed.

People generally read advertise ments inoro than they did a few years ago. Tho reason is to be found In the advertisements themselves. Advertisers are more careful than they U8ed to bo. They make the advertisements more reliable. Some of them even become in a way a department of the paper and people look for them overy day with as much zest and pleasure an they turn to any other feature of it. This ia Hue ot many department ttores all over tho country. In many cities, there in just one man who appreciates tho value of s-uch interest. He breaks away from tho old style. Ho tells something interest ing In his spaco overy day. There are lots of interesting tilings in business. Look over the miscel lany of the paper look at ita local newe columns and its telegraph news for that matter, and you'll see that the majority of tho items are more or less closely related to boiuo business fact. Drees those facts up in a becoming garb of wordi and they will find readers even though they be in a "more advertisement." Let the merchant come down off ot his pedestal and talk in his ads. Ho needn't be lllppant far from it, but let him not write as If he were addressing somebody afar off and tolling him about something at even a greater distance Tho newspaper goes right into its reader's house goes in and Bits down with him. It is on tho table when he eats and In his hands while be is smoking after the meal. It reaches him when ho Is in an ap proachable condition. That's the time to tell htm about your business eloarly, plainly, con vlnclngly as one men talks to another. SMOKEWS CHAMP. From tho Philadelphia Record A new disease his appeared In Europe which has been styled smoker's cramp. It is very similar in its effect to writer's cramp, or scrivener's palsy. The disease is caused by rolling cigarettes with one hand. For many years It has been common in ttpain, although some smokers are so expert as to make cigarette with a single twist of the fingers. 81nce a law was recently passed In France permitting the manufacture of hand-mado cigar ettes, large numbers ot girls have been employed In rolling cigarettes by hand. It is among' tbem that the disease has appeared. In Spain, however, it ia not confined to the cigarette girls, but is a common all- .Mercer; Ortsp,lment. Cameron will organize a commer cial club.

As a result of tho negotiations between Minister Dun in Japan and Mr. Denby In China, the terms of tho peaco about to coiioludad betK-srui ( hll.a utiri Jnt,nn flW, Anw knojjttle Wiott;bf ixi.l As uudorti tfdTlg1i?6lBda'P! at-1.. they; are aa follows 1. The treaty botween Japan and China hac ceased to exlt by reason Of tho war, but on the renewal of peace tbo now treaty will grant Japan extra territorial jurisdiction over China, but the latter country will surrender the extra tcrrit' llal jurisdiction she formerly hold. 2. There will be no extension ci Japanese territory on the malt land of Asia, but tho Island of Formo a. lying off tho coast, will bo perma nently ceded to Japan. 3. The Japanese will by treaty be granted tho right to continue tho occupation of Port Arthur and Woi- llal-Wel, tho two great naval sia- Hons leading to the Gulf of l'e-Chi-Ll, for n term of years. 4. The claims of China that Coica is a dependency of hers shall he for ever relinquished and Corea Hhnll henceforth be independent. 5. The cash indemnity to lie paid by China will not exceed 250,01)0.- 000 In gold. The foregoing terms glvo n num. her of now features which the cable information from l'ekin and Toktu had not thus far disclosed. Tho purpose not to extend Japanese territory on tho mainland, but to confine it to tho outlying Island of Formosa, assures the conclusion of a peace without European inteiven tion. The maintenance of Japanese extra territorial jurisdiction leaves China as tho only oriental countr submitting to this Jurisdiction. Until recently all civilized nations havo insisted that the courts were so primitive, and punishments so bar oarous, in botli China and Japan, that consular courtB should protect foreigners residing In these countries. Japan has recently negotiated a new set of treaties with the United States, Great Britain and other:oountiies in which her modern court pioceduro is recognized and consular courts abandoned. In conformity with t his new system, Japan now terminates.' China's consu'ar courts in Japan, although Japanese consular courts in China are to be coiitlimi d.
