What Tbey are aaylng- In Their Papers, Editor Southern.of tho Indepeiulence Sentinel, soands this note of warn ing: "Il is reported, and the report is be lieved by many, that the republicans ol Missouri propose to trade oil every other office in the coininar election in order to secure a majority In the next legislature. If Mr. Filley, chairman ol their state committee, can secure a majority iu the legislature, ho hopes to be elected United States senator. All good, true democrats should be alert to the above scheme, and see that good democrats are uomiualed throughout the state (or the legisla ture, and then refuse to trade. U. li. Vest is the choice of the people ol Missouri for the United States senate, and with the proper management the people will be able to retain their lion. 11 this is a iopleil Hie court will I hen be coiupORcd of nevcii members IiihIciuI ot live, ns lias been the rkho since about 1S72, siul the court will be divided ii.to wo diyixioiix ami both divisions will be at work, limn doubling tho working cupHcity ot this highest tribunal ol the stale in lioaiino and determining of causes. When the court was inureaaed from (luce members to live, it wax thought live men could at tend to the btiNincMS of (hi t stale, but as population and wealth have increased lo such an extent that live men can no longer attend to il ami it seems that another increase is now imperative. This court is now behind on the docket about three years. From this fact alone dixhoneet litigants are encouraged in faking appeals for the purpose ot delay only, and in such cascH as well as in many others this delay is equivalent to a denial of justice. In the event of the adoption of Ibis amendment the governor will appoint I ho two members addctl lo servo until the next general t: lection in 1892." Editor (iiiflitli Frost, of the Kdina Democrat, reiterates the warning to democrats alluded to above. To be lorewarned is to be loreai nied, and an ex pom re ot (he plan will almost cer tainly defeat it : "Democrats, he on your guard. The republicans of Missouri proposo to trado off every other oilice iu tho coining election, in order lo secure a majority in the next legislature. There are many rtasona for their action, but it is neces sary to name only one: If Mr. Filley, chairman ot their state committee, can sccuio a majority in the legislature he hopes lo be elected U. . senator, and tins would give linn absolute riowi r in t lie state. Therefore wo would advise all tmo democrats lo bo on their guard Ho not allow your partiality for a local cantlidale to induce you lo trado your vote so as to endanger the election ot democrats to the stale house ot repre sentatives and senate."' Prof, llicc, editor of tho Fulton Gazette, is cnthusiaatic. lie wants to see no lagging in the light but an ag grcssive, active, pushing canvass: "Press on with the tarill light. The bombardment is beginning to cll. The rank aud tile are beginning to clamour for a truce. Plumb has run up the white Hag on the Kansas entrench tnents. lilainc iu the center of the fort is Rounding his bugle for a truce. If the force bill fails, the people will capture them body, boots and breeches, in November.'1 Editor Wob Robert son shows wliero the responsibility rests, politically, for the Louisiana lottery: "Republican papers are loud of re ferring lo tho Louisiana lottery as a democratic institution. It was tlrst chartered iu 1KG8 by a republican car pet bag legislature. Iu IHi'J a demo cratic legislature repealed its charter, which repeal was nullilicd by an in j junction issued by Edward C. Hilling, U. S. district judge, aud ol course a re publican. Tho lottery was lounded by republicans aud has been fostered by them until this day." Editor Iiogie.ol the Richmond Demo crat, gets a little vigorous in his Ian iHiaeo in denouncing ignorant or vicious misrepresentation of the Win dom-Wall-Slreot silver bill: "There is a republican paper down in Bland's district, on the south side of the river, so ignorant or vicious, we don't know which, as to slate that the sil ver bill recently passed by congress pro vides for the coiuago of-t.oOO.OOO ounces of silver each mouth, lho tacts arc that (he bill provided that Hie coinage ot silver shall ctase alter the 1st nay ol July, 191, and that only $2,00,0IH) tier month shall be coined up to that lime. It also provides that tho secre tary of (lie treasury mav, if Hie price suits him, buy 4,.(M),(H)() ounces of sil ver each month and store it away out of sight. stand with him. That declaration includes it all, aud that he will be do lea! ed on the showing Is deemed mod erately certain. Hut the biale is large, aud the averago voter not ho well post ed as he should be, and while this is the case, there is always a possibility of de'eat, not lo say purchase of the llnalor as is usual. To a goodly extent republicanism in one state is republi canism in die others, though perhaps Massachusetts and Maine may be a little meaner than some others. They have tint phase uow. But even these may grow better as Blaine indoctri nates litem in his new departure. Ity the way, out here, republicans who used to swear right and lelt by .1. (1. U., many of them now say he is a foofoo, a tomtit, a popinjay. How people do change! But democrats think and believo that whether Blaine is either of the bad thiugs described by the ex pletives used above, he at least has Hlriickthelai iff and the forcejliill between wind and water, aud struck them so hard that neither will pasa in their present form, and now Blame has time to make a speech or two either to sscure nomination iu 18'J2, or lorce Grandmother Harrison lo make a tor- ward aggresalve movement by which its miserable failure of an adminialra- ion may be Infused with a little life with That the Intel ligencer has laid at greater length, aud with a uumber of similar articles iu other newspaper evidences the tact that It will bo well lor democrats to be alert and on their guard.

AoaSTrOATHB rOI.LOWINd VIHHT ( LASS Editor Stratton, of the Marshall News-Democrat, sixes up the situation iu the tills district tersely in the fol lowing: "The republicans oi the eleventh dis trict have put np a Mr. Erwiu, of Cal laway, to ruu agaiust Dick Bland for congress, but there is no danger of the district disgracing itaeli by retiring a representative who has served his con stituents so faithfully aud eOicieutly as I Las 'Silver Dick.' " Editor Cochrane, of the St. Joseph Gazette, speaks of the force bill in this way: "Boiled down, divested of all con cealments, the lederal election law is a measure intended to hand over the southern states lo tbe negro. To do this the followers of Mr. Iteed propose to place the ballot box in the hands o; partisan election supervisors. The mI1b are to be surrounded by cordons ot salaried mercenaries, empowered to sit iu judgment upon all questions aris ing, armed with authority unknown to State election officers, and not responsi ble to the communities or voters upon whom they are to be obtruded for the abuge of these extraordinary powers.

Brandon, of tho Fulton 8un, Mr. Er win's own county, looks at the situation this way: "The republicans ol this congression al district met in Jcffersou City, last Wednesday, and after denouncing the democratic parly in general and K. P. Bland in particular, nominated our fol low ci'izen, John L. lrvin, to lead the republicans ot lho district iu the race for congress. The resolutions are good and strong; In tact strong enough to draw every democrat in the district lo the polls on election day and enow (he republicans worso than ever. When a lot of men come together and indorse congress for raising the already high tariff snow is loo warm for them; Ihey should bo put on ice." . This is Editor While's view of the proposed constitutional amendment: "A constitutional amendment to in crease the number ol tho judges ol tho Blilirnmn nmirt liv ail.i;.,.. u,. ........ i. ...... , i .... l . , . iiii.iii n ' to it will be submitted lo lho voters n j tbib state at the next November eluc- Edilor W. T. Wright, of tho Pulaski County Democrat, points out Mr Blaine's Inconsistencies as to his pre vious and more recent views upon the home market: "Mr. Blame notes lho fact that 'our foreign market for bread stuffs grows narrower. It becomes us therefore to use every opportunity for the extension of our market on both of tho American continents.' Mr. Blaine 1ms hitherto been the chief of those who 'do not care for abroad.' lie has suddenly dis covered that tbe home markot is con gested and a foreign market is needed to carry off the surplus product. 1 his is common sense, but it is not goon republicanism. Does Mr. Blaine in tend to bring about a revision ot the party coiilession of faith t CALIFORNIA AFFAIRS-. San DiMio, Augmt 30, 190. Editor Intkm.iuknoer: Here in California we think it is the year lor democrats to carry tbe state from top lo bottom to win. and flax out tbe despoilers, root aud branch. Yon will understand that by a money shuttle aud blockS'Ot-tlve, California, with several other states, was counted for tbe old pretender, Harrison. It is not believed that lho approaching election will result just that way In November. Tbe people of California have learned a little something since Mr. Harrison smiled himself iu through the money of other men, not belter or worse than himself. The parties have out their tickets, except lor congressmen, a few districts not having as yet named their candidates, but will do so even before von can punt mis letter. These are more easily namcu man eiecie(i,tiiougn we hope to elect most ot them. Tho democrats navo formulated a most excellent platlorm, including and covering ail roniiigcncies, a leading feature ot which is a proposed reduc tion of state tax to iorty-hve cents on the hundrod dollars, which the conven tion declared ample to meet tho wants of tho stale. The republicans declare for fifty cents, while the siato board ot enualizaiion lavors tifty-cioht cents taxation lo keep lho machinery lubri cated. either ol winmi amounts is an improvement on our previous rats Under republican rule, neither will be resnectcd or obeyed, for you know thai parly is not celebrated for such savings, and usually prefers a higher than a lower rate ol taxation. Tho tickets will go before the people on this show iug, and wo shall see after a while what we shall see For troveruor, the democrats have a good ticket, headed by beaded by Hon. E. B Pond, present mayor ol San Iwaucisco, who has made a very Clcvolaudiau record, and will go up a step as did Cleveland, if no farther. That is the hhief uow. Pond is a lino, clean man vtilh no blurs or blots on his escutcheon no rascalities to explain or excuse and as lie stands with and for lho dem ocratic parly. Your readers, bo well posted by you on the politics of the time, will understand fully what that means, lie will be hard to bent. His opponent, Mr. Markham, is a republi can anyhow, anyway, everyway, to day and yesterday, and thai is quite bi d enough to suy of him or those who and "go Somo of his late admirers evou say that Blaine has turnod demo crat. So mote it be. That party drove away its oldest and ablost foun ders and supporters. Why not Blaine? He is a inau ot sense and should not forever ignore existing facts, or as Paul had it once, continue to "kick against tho pricks. " Here in California, we are willing that Blame should "flop," aud think it is time all men ehoulil,and for that reason the gospel of tarill and right is preached to them. e are not only willing be should "flop, ' but would be glad to know that ho was powerful enough out of congress to kill tbe iniquities both ol IWclViuley anil Lodge, and kill them bad. Wo say let htm go ou with his killing by anv pro cess ho mav choose the rope, tho ax. or electricity and God help him. His coarse is relied on here for lots of votes on the side of right, as, no doubt, it will help grand old Missouri to add to her democratic majority. Let us hope for it in both instances. Like Missouri, California has a seua torial fltfht for tbe place held by Gov. Stanford, the great railroad gourmand, whose craw is equal to everything in Bight, including the earth, and whose wealth is amplo to buy him place, if there be truth in election rascalities which most people believe. Missouri Caliloruia democrats all hope for tho doleat ot the $60,1)00,000 uounnand.aiid the success ot Senator Vest, and for one of them the writer is convinced in his own mind that Mr. Vest will very easilv be ro-el ected. So mote it be It is less certaiu here, for we have some awfully wooden headed people from all soclious ready to sell out their inherit ance for tbe traditional mess oi pottage, or a litlle less. But we want at least your prayers I bat we may detest the great railroad monopolist, Mr. Stan- lord, so he may naye more lime to iook alter his railroads and race horses, his European travels and his new college. We hope to gel on witu tno situation, but fear the money power lho blocks. of-Ave. and all tbe Ouayisms of the degenerate and rascally republicans, j.
