Tbe thirty-fifth general assembly wlaely passed a law governing primary electious. lu a country like ours, where, des pite all that may be said against par tisan politica, the necessity for carrying out certain ideas or schools of though give fine to pari leu, it is neonHsui i keep their acta aa pure an ran well lie tlone In certain republican Male .'omilitts a nomination Is tantamount to an election; in certain democrat! stale and conutiea tbe same tact pre vaiU. Tbe result la tbat as between the primary election aud the general election tbe former la of more inoineu and brings nut the sharpest and the most active content . Under theao clr ouinttauc.es It iaaomewbat singular that there has not sooner beeu adequate legislation to protect tbe primary elec tlou trom fraud. The new law Is not a long one, it doea not attempt loo much ; indeed it may be found that it ia not lull enough at any rate it is a step in I hu righ ilireolioii. Section 4796 ot the revised statutes of 1889 provides that the lodges, clerks and tellers ot any primary election held lor the purpose of nominating caudl dates for election, or ot selecting dele gates to a nominating convention whereby candidates are selected for any publlo office, shall, before entering upon their duties, take and subscribe the oath prescribed by law for judges aud clerks of election. Thlt It a good provision, because heretofore if the judges and clerks were sworu at all It was simply by consent, with the knowledge that It was not required by law, and with a consequent laxity ol performance upon tbe part ot many Now there can be no question about It, Tbe law require it, aud any Infraction ot the oath Is an infraction of tbe law. Section 4796 provide that any pertoa votlug at any aucb primary election, who la not qualified to vote in tbe elec tlou precinct where be offers to vole at the next atate. connty or municipal election, or who shall vote more tbau ouce at the same or different precincts r polls on tbe same day in tbe same election, shall be deemed guilty ot a olsdemeaoor, and on conviction tball be puniabed by a fine not exceeding ne hundred dollars, or by Imprison oeut in tbe county Jail not exceeding blrty days, or by both such flue or Imprisonment. This provldea punish- nent where there bat heretolore been mine, and a Judicious publication of tie fact will prevent a great deal ol. repeat- ng and false voting lu primary elec ions, which l as htrotofore been done here, while not even thought ot for the general election where the law impose oevere penalties. Sectiou 4797 goes even further and i-ovidet that every person who shall Knowingly procure an illegal vote t tie rant at such primary eleciiou wliail l4 deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, tud upon conviction thereof punched provided in section 4796. Aud sectiou 4798, tbe concluding one, provides that any Judge, clerk or teller ot any primary election held by any pilitical party iu this stale, who shall makeorretnru a fraudulent statement f l'ie result of such election, shall be leemed guilty ot a misdemeanor, aud ipou conviction, shall be punished a lereinbefore provided.' The law, as will be seeu by u careful review ot It as here given, w terne, ompact, yet comprehensive, and hooid do much toward purifying our jritnary electious, which are as a rule he real fouutains from which apriim the impelling action of American politics. Senator lugallt In hit race speed, aid: "Tbe colored people are here. I'bey are nativet. Tbey are citizens. 4an for man they are our political qualt. Thev came here iuvoluularlly. ii prisoners of war, captured In fight t hey re oi ancient unesge genuiu V. F. Vs." Tbe senator it mlttaken in he concluding remark. He euoulit .ave said F. F. R Tt first families oi tthode Island. It was the commercial spirited people of that little common wealth who were principally the pur haters and Importers of tbe original frlcan slaves which were brought Into hit country. Anyone who hat read 'hooper, aud the early writers of tub country generally, will reuember that the headquarters of the slave trad waa in the city ol Providence, and thai In itt bay were prepared tho sharp- prowed fleets which plowed the raging ntin with black eargoet. Tbe Yankee s a thrifty fellow, and he reaps the profltt of planting tbe thing. He ! -tlso a cautious fellow, aod be dropped it at toon at an awakened public sen Iment threatened to make It extra hazardous, since which time be has been singing psalm through bis nose it the wickednosa ol the southern people. Mr. Ingalls 1 mistaken-the negroes came to ns-from the F. F. It. I. Of Mr. Grover Cleveland the San Antonio Time sayt: "He it tbe expo nent of a great idea, the principle ol tariff reform. On the line of that idea the battle mutt be fought In 1892. He Is to-day the most onlversally popular man of bis party. Even in defeat he has lost no friends. He is ttronger to day than ever before, aud the mention f bit name creates enthusiasm every where. Calm, telf-rossessed aud do tertnlued, be U tbe leader of the de mocracy." There can hardly be t doubt in tbe mind of any well-informed pertou that tbe Times speaks truly Whatever may be Mr. Cleveland's pref erence as between tbe ease and com fort of a private life and tbe worry aud vexations of another term in tbe pres idential office It it qnlte evident that the democracy of the whole country looks upon him a the great exponent of Its aim aod purposes atid the man of all other who must be relied upon to assure tbe victory of its principle. Senator Ingalls began bit speech ou the race question the other day with these words: "The race to which we belong is the most arrogant and rapa cious, the most exclusive and indom itable In history. It it the conquering and tbe onconqnertble race." The senator made an Interesting speech, but, with the exception ol Ms eulogies of Jefferson Davis aod Henry W. Grady, it would bare been a belter one If it had conclnded with this flnt . sentence. Good luck continues to follow tiro- ver Cleveland His guaranteed income from the law firm to which he belongs it f3ft;000 a yeai. Dr. Morrison M unfoul, editor of tho KiiiihHH City TiuiuH, interviewed Mr. Cltvi-lund, in New York, lust week. Mr. Cleveland reiterated his view upon tho tariff, naving anions oilier tilings: "I was genuinely pleaded to ti tul in Boston, among men who am constitutionally conservative, a degn o ol i'arneutneH-4 and fervor bevimd that ol nieii eiijeiyril in iinliiii-c. 1'ioiu uiv iibm'i vittiiui thf-re and in New Ymk, and linn, my 'oiT-hn.iiilriiri-, I con clude lli.it tin- lliinl.iiif. nun n tin nut inn him unixM-d almont olidlv n the side il (arirt relorm. Whatever may i our lips a' d ilowm there ii no danger a to the defliny ol a parly which absorb the ht.-hl toaint, tnii-lli-gflnce and honexlv ol thought, and the cause which draws then- elemeni-t to its support i-i sure ot ultimate hiicresx." In aiiHwer to I r Muuford's niigen liou that ho Mould be the natural lead er ol the democrats iu the nel i-auvats Mr. Cleveland said : "Men who have elements of leadership dovelop rapidly and it is n long liino till 1 .'. It 2k not a matter of men but ot principlew It would he a pity uot to carry forward the work which the party lias ho grand ly inaugurated, aud there ought to be no hall uulil the ends aimed ai aie compassed aud tbe people are iu lull possession of the benefits aud blessings which an accumulation of inequalities called into existence by apathy on one tide aud self interest on the other have diverted from them. I rejoice to leel that the democratic parly is the reprc tentative of the best principles aud purposes; that its ranks teem with the intelligent young manhood ot the country; that It enjoys a complete mouopoly of every American policy not merely seotioual or time serving.' Tbe Kaylto says: "The Simmons Hardware Co., the Quick Meal Stove Co.and the Neidriughaus stamping Co., all of St. Louis, think they are bigger tbau the laws of the state ot Missou rl, cousequently are proceeding to do business lu detiauceof the anti-trust law passed by the last leglslalure.They will Hud out where they alaud by the time tbe state gets through piling up fines agaiust thein." This la a mistake as to tbe St. Louis statnpiug company. That oompany after tbe passage of the aoli trust law voluutarlly got out of all its contracts to inaiutain price, but oho. This one tbey thought did not come onder the scope of state legislation, bo ng a contract under a pateut, with one other company, iu New York, to main tain and fix the price ot granite ware. The arrangement was held by Mr. Neidriughaus to be in the uature of a partnership, but the secretary of state declined to accept an affidavit with the above mentioned contract excepted, and Mr. Neidriughaus proceeded to abro gate it, after which be filed an affidavit bat bis company was iu uo trust, com bine, agreement to maintain prices or to limit supply whatsoever. Hence the aaserliou that tbe St. Louh stamping company is doing business in defiance of the anti-trust law is erroneous. We know our contemporary would not misrepresent eveu a political enemy, aud that it believed its remarks to he truo. Among the mauy tutile efforts to beat Vest" was an attempt to flatter Senator Sam Major into becoming a caudidate for the place. Sam would make a good United States at he does a most excellent state senator, but he is u t so young a bird as to be caught with chaff. Iu an iwcr to a question from Charlie Walden.of tho Advertiser, tbe senator said a few days ago : " Yes, they have got me down at a caudidate lor tbe United States senate, tor con gress, for goveuor, and no telllug what It will be next. But 1 am not a caudi date for anything. I expect to serve out my time iu the atate senate, 11 1 ive, and I am for Georgo Vest against tne wor d. The stale of Missouri is a sately democratic as Texas or Georgia, though uot by to large a majority, aud think tbe new ceuaua will give the ate three aud perhaps four new con gressmen, tbe largest increase of any ate, and you will see ns roll up our old-fashioned democratic majority at our next election." Kx-Unlted State teuator Harrison II. Riddleberger. of Woodstock, Va.. lied at bis home a few days ago. Hi served as lieutenant of Infantry aud aptaiu of cavalry lu the confederate army, though quite a young uiau, being out iu the war lor some three years. He was a Uwyur by proletfion, was prosecuting attorney ot his county to two terms, aud became prominent In state politics as a readjtistor ci-adjntor ot Senator Mahoue, aud became his colleague. He had the grace to fall out with .Mahone before he died, and bis last political work ws to stump the atate against the arch-demagogue. Sen ator Riddleberger was an eloquent man, but an erratic one, aud some what given to drink. Gov.Abbett.of New Jersey, has shown that be does uot think that thorough electoral reform strikes at the rights ol voteis, or endangers the success ol the democratic parly. He not ouly wants the ballot box aud the voter at the ballot box protected from rascally politicians, but he strikes at the bean f the evil by advocating a law to pre vent bribery and (ho expenditure of huge corruption hinds in elections. He sends a homo thrust into the hypocrite? in high placet who advocate putting money into elections, as well as the ward bosses, who work the polls for themselves aud otherr Dr. W. C. Hallcr, ol Cole county, a prominent and highly respected ciliieu, was arrested a few days ago on a charge of murder, lu having killed au Indian named Sloan, on Cowskin prairie, In the nation, in 1670. Dr. Hatler admits the killing, but says it was done in self defence, that it wos so regarded At the time, and hencotheie wai no prosecution. Dr Hatler is a mason, stands high in the community. and it may be that tho IT. S. Judge when he loams tho facts will uot re quire him to be liken to Fort Smltl . The department c li-iksat Washington speak of Mr. Harrison as "Milk and Pie." That Is not so bad as callinu Mm "Pies and Things," but it is hardh respectful to the dignified, it sawed-nfl. gentleman who prei-ides over ihedes- tlniea oronrgjorhHwoiiiir. v. The United States government last Wednesday foruuilly iecigui.el the new republic of Hrazil, when the pies- idem received the credeutial-i of its ft presentstive in Washington.; Capt. Albert O. Allen, in a recent letter to the New M-idrid Ueenrd, na s: "The readers of the Record who huvo paid tbeir filato taxes lor will have noticed that tho amount waa ono fourth lesa than usual, owing to the tact that the lust legislature reduced ihn rate from 40 ceuts to 30 cents on too $100 valuation. Hon. dames M. Setbert, slate auditor (J ho then slate ireanirei ), lecoiiiiueiided tint reduction in 17, but li'oin some cause the thii t v - fourth general assembly refused to rhangf) the ta tale. Hy the way , it may not be generally known to niisnouriana, but it is true, that the tat levy lor support ol the stale government is less lu our stale than In any other In the union. We pay 30 ceuts on the $100 as assessed valua lion for state purposes. (If this one tenth ot 1 per rent., or leu cents per hundred dollars, goes to pay tho priu cipal and interest ou the state debt bt queathed to us by the republican parly as a result ot their sale of the state's lieu on the railroads. The remaining 20 ceuts on tho $100 valuation one- tilth of 1 per cent. is state revenue tax of which one-third ia returned to (hi people aa atate school moneys, leaving ouly thirteen and two-tbirJs cents ou tbe $100 valuation with which to pay all the expenses of the state govern ment, including support of state uni versify and normal acboola, lunatic, deaf and dumb and bliud asylums, costa in criminal cases and assessing aud collecting revenue, pay of general assembly, priuting law and ournal, salaries ot etate officers, supreme and circuit judges, etc. That thia can be doue ia owing to the economical ad ministration of the state government by tbe democratic party." Mr. Spooner up and speaking: "Tbe hauging in efflgy of Secretary Proctor had not ouly bi ought out the leeliug of bitterness that had existed in the south, and which had no counter part In any village of the north." Hold on there, Mr. Spooner, what are you talking about? How about the rebel lious hanging of Benjamin Harriaou in effigy, by a repnblicau club iu Indian apolia? Is Indiana malice love In your wolverine vocabulary? Seuator George's speech iu reply to the bloody shirt resolution of Mr. Chandler was the speech ot a scholar and a ttateamau. It was not answered by the rant ot Bill Chandler or tLe abuse of little Mr. Hpoouer. The Missouri Pacific railway is mak ing lower rates to Texas poiuts, to meet those fixed by the Cotton Belt.

Please urge upon your readers lu your next lsnue the importance of petitioning (he county court at its February term to submit to the voters the question ol O'iouty supervision of schools, so that an eleciiou can be held at the April n hool meeting in accordance with proviiom of section 708G and amendment The present commissioner will fulfill tbe duties until a successor is elected, when bis time expires, lu the language, ol our school commissioner, "nothing U more needed at the pieent time man someone who will devote his whole time to looking alter tne schools in person, that be may know just what ia being done by each teacher; that he Khali Vi-lt the schools iu peivon, shall examine the classification, discipline, order maintained aud lesnlth seen red, also the teacher's register and district cieik'a book, and instruct in regard to same when necessary.

It U believed that it will bo iui.i net i cahlo lor the snag boat to go lo work until the lli'st or middle of March, as I tie river up lo that time Is likely lo be lull ol Moating Ice I Im snag boat is a ponderous affair Vith two hulls and a space between 1 11 this space the work is tlone. When a snag is discovered, huge chains, the links of which weigh about tlfiy pounds, are attached and an effort made to pull tho anag up. It this fails the big crons cut saw ia run out into the water near the bottom ol the snag and it ia sawed off by macbiu ery. Manv suaga are so large that de spile tbe ureal power ol the machinery breaks are frequent. No snagging has been done on the Missouri river re cently exceut iu special places and it is thought 1 Ii hi there uiiihi be many snags net ween tins poini anu me inotiln ol the river, many stubborn oues, but all removable. When asked for an opinion aa to tho navigability of the Missouri, one of the men connected with tbe commission said : "There is 110 doubt about the practi cal navigation of tho Missouri lar be yond Kansas City. The policy of all improvements made by the government lias b'jen to narrow the chauuel, which of courpo, deepens it. It baa been tbe talk among the men at work 011 the river that it seemed like throwing money away to work 011 lbe channel, as there was no navigation and the work baa not gone forward with that vigor ami thoroughness that would have characterized it had there been a regular lineol boats plying between Ht. Louis and Kansas City. The men in the service have watched with much inter est the organization ot the packet line 111 Kaunas Ulty. It is the general be del that with ibis line iu operation the Uie government will be more liberal iu its appropriations, that all work will be directed lo keeping the riyer in as nar row cbaunel as possible, aud thia will make it navigable at all times. A sys tematic line of work trom tbe mouth to Kansas City would make the river iu lar belter shape tbau it ever waa before. "lo us it seems (hat the packet hue cannot tail to be a paying undertaking. "1 oeneve mat ll the appropriation for the auag boat is made Colouel Suler will put two auag boats 011 the river as soon as the ice permits. Two anag boats well maimed will do a great deal of work." It was stated that Major Warner's estimate ot tbe cost of operating a anag boat, f 900 a day, was double wbat it costs; $3,600 is a liberal estimate for a snag boal barriug accidents. It this is true $75,000 will keep a snag boal iu operation twenty mouths, or two ol theui teu months. 1 be river ouce well cleared of snags, one boal in constant opeitttiott will keep it iu fair navigable nhapo. When a boat is snagging regu larly, lumber men usually follow It up and lake the logs as they are extricated ir sawed off. When thia ia not dont- tbe logs are sawed np aud floated down tie river or put on the banks. It is Irequeiilly the case that a gang of Lieu with axes go with a Miag boal aud fell trees ou tbe bauks which are likely to tall into the streaiu.lt ia no uncommon cae 10 have a crew ol forty men ou a suaguer aud then it costa more than f3,6uo a inoiiili.

You. n and the two other men then started home with urn-col beer, leaving Ferguson lu lbe saloon. On tbelr way Young and bis Irlenda met a iinni wboae Dame la supposed tj bi.ve been H ue carrying a lantern and called lo bun to lili them home. Home ugly words pas-. il be tween tbeae men aod Hare struck You.ig Willi tbe lantern and ran away, lelliug the lauiern fall. Tbe lantern waa picked up hy llujtb Biuitb, who banded It to Ferguson, wtiu, it seems, bad come up to a hedge fence near where this difficulty took place. You ig men camp up lo-fergusoo and asked him who the man was tbat struck bliu with Die lantern rergusoo replied that he did not know. Young then laid lo him, ".Sieve, you are pmlly good lellow and do know, an. I now I want you 10 tell me." Ferguson insisie.1 li,t be did not know and some ugly words j.a-scii between them. A suulUa ensued and lbe light went out. Tbeu two men were seen perhaps Indistinctly, to move off In a westerly direction from tne bedgu. Nothing more waa known of tbe matter uulil lbe next morulog, when the dead holy ol Keru.oi, waa found. Tbe weapon used was laige white. baudltj pocket kulfe, with a Inch blade.

In concluding lbe opinion Judge Sherwood a .y: ".Some of lbs language of tbo couusvl for Ihi slate In llie closing argumeul cauuol he sauc Honed. It wasaa follows: 1. l be prnsump llou of law In Ibis alale la that when a charge Is made afainst a party lo bla presence, ami be does not deny It, be is presumed to be guilty.' 2. 'Tba defendant is a mean, low dowu, wlckad, dlrtv devil ; that la tbe kiud of a man he la ' 8. -Wben we Droved tbat defendant bad admitcd tbe killing, the pre sumption of his Innocence was ovei thrown and the pre.i.mi.llou of guilt look lis nlace; the two could uot stand together. ' Tho llrsl sentence copied above bas been sutll. lenily commented on in tbe second paragraph of tbla opinion. Tbe second ktau-mc.nl above copied w rrur4 ptrional ubuifoi the prisoner. and oot to be tolerated In any tribunal calling luelf a court ol Juat'ca. Tbe third sentence above quoted was not law, and was at r with tne presumption of innocence, which continues with tbe prisoner till tbe verdlci of guilty ovei throws thai presumption. Suck utterances as these bays been so frequently, pointedly aod recently condemned by ibis court tbat it would seem hlgb time tbat the prosecuting attomeya ol tbls state sbould bave beard ol our rulings In tbn regard.
