H. M. KNOX. Notary Public, City of St. Louis. Mo. ilT term expires July 1. 2S01. j BENEFIT IS I'KOMISBD. Some benefit seems likely to accrue to- the city and to its citizens from the agitation following the recent deaths by electricity. The application of a SL Louis telephone company for an injunction against the city authorities gives promise of clearing up some hazy provisions regarding electrical wort in the city. . St. Louis's municipal authorities, as iwel! as the wire-users of the city, teem to have awakened to the fact that electrical work needs regulating and super-.vlslng and that the laws adopted for its regulation are .in need of literal enforcement. A considerable extension of the conduit district and a thorough revision uud amplification of the ordinances for tiie protection of life and property from electricity should be the outcome of the agitation. , TRIBUNE OR TRUSTITE? Sir. Bryan's talk 011 trusts to the students of the University of Chicago contained certain clear statements of fact which should have their due weight In influencing all who are now htudyiug this great problem with a view to Its .wisest solution in the public interest. IT 13 "undoubtedly true that any monopoly in private hands Is indefensible anfl Intolerable. It is equally true that the tendency of monopoly is to amass great fortunes In the hands of the few and to distribute increasing distress among the many. And It is unutus-tionably true that the trusts embody exactly this principle of monopoly in private hands which is indefensible and intolerable, and tliat the- trusts are now amassing great fortunes in the hands of the few and distributing increasing distress among the many. Mr. Bryan's honest utterances against trustism are in marked contrast to the evasive platitudes of Mr. McKiniey. The McKiniey evasions are designed' only to blind the people to the fact that tha, present administration and the Republican party propose to staud by the trusts to the last. The Democratic leader is on the side of the people as against the trusts. The Republican, leader Is on the side of the trusts a.s against the people. It Is for the people themselves fo say which of the two shnli triumph at the polLs In November the Tribune or the Truslile. AROUSKD DEMOCRACY. Whatever may be the extent in Illinois of that "Republican apathy" of which Boss Ilanna complains, the news reports of the great enthusiasm aud interest attendant upon the Democratic campaign In that State indicate that the apathy In question is certainly confined to the Fauks of Mr. Ilanna's party. There are several good reasons. The State of Illinois has been sorely tried, at great sacrifice of its interests, by the Tanner-Cullom feud for spoils aud machine dominance. It has learned, through grievous experience, that a Republican administration means a machine maladministration. It has nothing to hope for In the event of , young Dick Yates's electiona candidate already committed to Tanner. There Is absolutely nothing in the appeal of Republicanism to the people of Illinois calculated to create enthusiasm tending to Republican victory. On the oilier hand, the Democratic candidate for Governor. Mr. Alschuler, is a clean and able German-American to whom Illinois may safely look for an admirable administration of the State's affnirs In the people's interests. Day by day he grows stronger among the voters of "the State, who know him for a capable and honest man desirous of the popular welfare. He is not dominated by a Boss nor tied to the wheels of a machine. The platform en which he stands Is a platform indorsed by the American people with especial emphasis In this crisis of American history a platform which declares for the Republic against Empire. There will be even greater apathy manifested by the Republicans of Illinois before the present campaign is ended. The stay-at-home vote of Republicans wearied to the bone by Tanner-ism and Cullomism uud Hanuaism and imperialism will be a potent factor for Democratic success at the polls. There are good grounds for the belief that Bryan and Stevenson and Alschuler, three Iiliuoisnus, will carry the Stale of Illinois for Democracy this year by a rousing majority. MARK TIIE DIFFERENCE. Ziegenhelnism is the controlling Influence in the Republican party of Missouri. The Globe-Democrat is its tireless champion; so devoted that no degree of municipal in:il.idmiuIstnitiou cjn lrlii'-':i word of reproof into the columns of thai paper, though uiiie-teutlis of ReptililV.m readers are Miylng openly thai i a disgrace to St. I.ouis. The ("Iolie-Deiiiocrat is so williug to give the State government of Missouri over to Ziegeuhelii thai it employs the means of false btatemeut to pnmu.te that unworthy purpose. It ciaiunil jes-terday thai Mr. Doekery appime.l the expenditures of the last legislative session as just and reasonable. Mr. Doekery did nothing or the kind. He proved that oue Joseph Plory had misstated these expenditures. In prt-M'Utlug the proof he was too temperate to say. as he might have said, lhat Mr. 1'Iory either lied brazenly or was transparently ignorant of the simplest State affairs. Mr. Doekery has never approved the exiK-uditures of the last session. Every fair-minded Democrat has admitted that the expenses of that session were in some respects open to criticism. But the Democratic party has shown Its capacity for good government by milking this year evptiouail good nominations for the Legislature. It per ceived the danger or carelessues in this respect. It applied the remedy. Compare that vigorous action with the record of Ziegeiilieiuism In St. I.ouis. Bad has been made worse month by nioutii. There has been no effort at betterment. The streets, the lights, the hospital, the parks in fact, every department shows the effects of corrupt gov ernment. Thu salaries go on, though the pay roils are stuffed. A public service may fall into decay, but the salary list ever grows larger. It is practically impossible to get a measure through the Municipal Assembly until the combines have searched every line for opportunities of boodle aud spoils. The Legislature of Missouri may have laid Ilself open to criticism. The gang which governs St. Ixniis has become a lit subject for extensive criminal proceedings. That Is the difference. The Democratic party of Missouri lias shown itself quick to notice faults aud to correct them. The gang In St. Imls boasts of corruption, and its only repining is that franchises aud cou tracts are not as plentiful as they were. Its only aspiration is to remain In power long enough to loot all the rich opportunities associated with the World's Fair. And don't mistake. Ziegcnheluism is the Republican machine in the State as well as In St. Louis. If Flory is to be the World's Fair Governor aud one of the gang is to be the World's Fair Mayor, the people of the State will look back on the session of ISO'J as a speck-less paragon of political dignity and virtue. DISASTER FOUND HEROES. I'nlKiunded admiration for the energy, resolution and clear-headedness of the authorities of Galveston mingles with the sympathy aud sorrow which the nation feels for that city In the most fearful calamity that has ever visited the United States. Johnstown, with its loss of i.OUO, shrinks into insignificance beside Texas's estimated loss of 5,0:)t). There but one town suffered and the surrounding district was left whole and strong for the work of relief. In Galveston the survivors for miles around were worn with fear aud the labor of resisting the storm. Had aid been ready at hand the isolation of the city by the cashing away of bridges would have prevented its reaching the sufferers. In this situation thu action taken by Mayor Jones said his helpers to relievo the living, to bury the dead and to lc-store order out of awful chaos calls for admiration and applause. It required nerve, resolution and courage to declare martial law, to confiscate provisions for public use at stipulated price-, to regulate with au iron hand the transportation of passengers across tin; liay and to compel every able-bodied man to carry his share of the burden even to tiie use of forte ami bayonets where they were needed. Tills prompt establishment of a llrm government in the devastated city will do as niuih to ie-lieve the woe of the city from within as the work of Governor Sajers of Texas is doing to relieve it fiom without. St. Louisa ns aud Missourlans should show their appreciation of such manly, heroic qualities displayed in times of the sorest need. Such courage and efficiency should not go begging for relief. The relief should come spontaneously from all parts of the country. MAINE'S TEACHING. There is ample Justification for the elaiuinow made at Democratic national headquarters in Chicago that the same ratio of Republican loss and Democratic gain shown in the election returns from Maine, If maintained in certain doubtful States, will result in the election of Mr. Bryan to the presidency. There is also the best reason for believing that this ratio will be so maintained and, probably, surpassed. The Republicans exerted their utmost effort to score a victory in Maine which should convince the doubting that an overwhelming Republican victory In November was certain. Oue of the most sagacious and thoroughly trained campaign managers In the Union, National Committeeman Manley of Maine, directed the Republican fight in that State. The national machine was subject to his orders. Unlimited means were at his disposal. He has done the best that was possible to any Republican this year, and the result is ominous indeel for Republicanism. - That there should be great and unconcealed fiennbiican chagrin at this showing from Maine is entirely natural. It is no wonder that Senator Ilanna. tno Boss of the Republican national organization, declined to express an opinion on the Maine elections. It is not strange that Vice Chairman Payne of the Republican National Executive Committee refrained from hazarding a statement as to the cause or the Republican losses In Maine. It is a. crisis when, for a few days at least, the wisest Republican policy Is to say nothing. Some Republican lightning calculator on the Grosvenor order may. after a breathing spell, be enabled to figure out something besides crushing defeat in the facts as they now stand. As a matter of fact, the watchful lead ers of the Republican party know as well as any one else just what the trou hie is. They see now, to their dismay, that they have misjudged the American people. Not for the sake of plunder and booty are Americans willing to dishonor their Goveruiu -nt by revelsiug its si len-dld teachings and lepti Hating its noM, and beneficent polWs of a century i ast. It N natural that such Stales as Maine aud Vermont should in shell a crisis stand tinn for ihe old Republic against Empire. I heir example will be followtd l.v other Slates In Nowiiib.r win r Mitli results are possible as to sweep tit" parij of Empire from cmitiol of th-Government and to so firmly re establish the Republic uu its original fouadi-lions that no impeiial traitor shall dare again to assail t'lrni:' foundations or seek to betray the Republic-. RICHARD CARVELS" HIT. St. Loiii-ntis should welcome with (special interest and au exceptional gratification the detail of the pronounced Slleiess scored in New York City by the dramatized ersion of Mr. Winston Churchill: uovel of Colonial days, Richard Carvel." It was due to this fact of the lucal significance or what promises lo be the biggest dramatic hit of the theatrical season or Ran i-m ihat The Republic- oh tallied by wire the story or "Richard CarvelV first-night production at the Empire Theater. 'Ihe author or that powerful novel Is a young St. LouNau. the work was written here, it Is dedicated to Mr. James 1.'. leuliuau, a venerable and beloved St. Louis philanthropist. Not even New York Is so intimately concerned In tills new stage venture as is Jir. Winston Churchill's, own city. Naturally enough, It will be some time beiore St. Louisans may hope to witness .Mr. John Drew's eminently satisfactory production or .Mr. Chnrchiir.s story at one or the local playhouses. "I'lchiird Carvel" Is evidently in for a long run at the Empire. This fact or a pleasure defened will not, however, lessen the local interest manifested in the progress of the play in popular favor, aud a very notable engagement should be certain when "Richard Carvel" shall finally come to St. Louis. Up to the present Bryan. Stevenson and a few other Democrats hae not been named in the lists of "Democrats who will vote for McKiuIey." Nothing Is impossible, however, to the perseveriug Industry of the latter-day at the disposal of the Republican campaign leaders. John G. Woolley, the Prohibition candidate for President, appears to size up the McKiniey administration very justly when he says that It has given the United States "a government without the people. In spite of the people, against the people and for the syndicates." New pollbooks will be used in the election next November, and no man's name will be on them, no matter how often he has voted from Ids present place of abode, unless he has registered anew. If you can register to-day don't put It off until to-morrow. Perhaps Vermont aud Maine did not have time lo digest the imperialistic literature with which tiie Republican campaigners plastered them and for that reason the decrease in Republican majorities was not as great as it might have been. Chauncey Ives Filley attracts attention to the fact that on September 10 next he will have lived fifty years in St. Louis. "And Mayor Ziegeniiein's administration Is the most corrupt I have observed in that time," ho adds. When the President of the national organization of the German Catholic Central Verein opens its convention with a speech against Republican imperialism German sentiment is pretty forcibly indicated. Along about Novemuer 7 poor Teddy Rocseveit will realize that he lias been defeated for the Vite Presidency in Rioo aud the Presidential uomiaation in RHM at oue fell swoop. A Republican municipal administration which makes St. Louis dependent upon the moon for street lighting helps to darken the prospect for Republican victory in the State. President McKinley's warmed-over letter ot acceptance is too much like boarding-house hash lo go down with the American people. An overwhelming Democratic victory In Missouri in November. 1W0, should be the forerunner or the icdeniptlon or St. Louis In April, IDOL In cases o( "sudden disaster like that overtaking Galveston the motto or American cities seems to lie: "One for all; all for oue." President McKinley's studied defense of imperialism is the strongest Democratic campaign argument yet issued. That Republican apathy of which Mark Ilanna complains will In November intensify into paralysis. A Plnln American Talk. Jut puttlr.i: lolltln arid.

The development ot the Iliecs Idea Is of Incalculable value to Macon and the surrounding country. Visitors over tho State this year aro finding frequent surprises In the matter of hotels. The towna of Sedalia. Springfield. Macon. Mexico and yet others have accommodations that are not surpassed In tho large cities. Thl Is In gratifying contrast to conditions that prevailed Ave or ten years ago. NOTES FROM THE LOCAL THEATERS. The Imserlal Stock Company Is now rehearsing for Its Initial performance. Miss Maude Odell, who Is lo be the leading lady, closed a leng engagement with the Castl Square Company In I'oston to come lo St. I .mi Is. and although but three days' notice was given of her lertirttirc. she te-celved the enormous number of 1.3S7 letters of request for her photograph. Tills notwithstanding that she had already sub-t-crlbed "Yours very tlncerely" to something over I.OUii during her eighty-three weeks" rtay In the modern Athens. Miss Odell says she Is by this time ashamed to look a photograph In the fuce. Miss Ixiulse Douglas, who will be Juvenile lady. Is the daughter of a Cincinnati furniture man. Manager Glffen thinks there Is nothing "wooden" about her acting, however. Donald Bowles has been christened "1'en-fant terrible" by the members of the company. He is the lire of the organization. His friends say that If he were cast for the Imp in Nat Goodwin's success, "When We Were Twenty-one," he would only need to be natural to make the famous comedian look to his laurels. Grayce Scott, who has previously appeared here. Is nursing an aggravated case of ulcerated sore throat and Is fretting over her enforced absence from the preliminary rehearsals of "The Great Ruby." Her physicians promise a speedy recover', however, and she will soon be merging her Identity In that of Louisa Jupp. Rusco and Holland's minstrels at the Grand Opera-house this week have been Tleasing to the patrons of that pretty theater. The Oriental terrace scene In the first part of the performance i especially pretty, and the drill of the black watch is one of the best marches. "For Her Sake" will be the attraction next week. The play Is said to be melodramatic In character. Russia Is the scene which has engaged the dramatist's attention. Manager Garen's patrons at Havlln's have found comfort this week, and "Midnight In Chinatown" Is sensational enough for the most critical. The scenic effects are pleasing, and the dancing of Mile, de Zare Is novel. From an attractive view of the mountains the spectator Is taken to an opium den in Chinatown. Next Sunday the management at Havlln's will present another melodrama, "The Convict's Daughter." Lovers of Xcw England farm-life dratoa, MAPLEW00D FAMILY CAUGHT IN GALVESTON HURRICANE.

There was not room on the sidewalks, which became corgesttd In the morclng, and wliui the noon trains got in. bringing the. orators of tho day, the multitude surged ixorn tho sidewalks to the roadway. The Fourth Kegiment Band of Mount Ver non furnibhed the music, and a quartet of ladies from Mowtaqua, Shelby County, gav vocal selections. The band was stationed ott the portico of the old Slatchousa, the pres ent Courthouse, and, despite desperate efr fo-ts. the Indies' Giee Club failed to rcacii the speakers." stund until after Jir. SUven-miii was half through hb oration. This was on account of tne dense crowd of people. Escorts were provided for the ladles, but they could not make headway in the crowd. The farmers and merchants and laboring men stood on melr rights and refused to hudge lor fear they would lose advantageous position they came to listen, and they proposed to remain until the end. it w:ls in tnls throng lhat the Jloweaqua, lames were prisoners lor ten or fifteen minutes. Finally Judge Farmer rescued them and triumphantly landed them on the stand. '1 ho glee ciub is composed of Daisy D. Arin-BlriiDK. .Bessie E. Klioorn and Luna M. and Irtne Snyder.

Judge Webb and a host ot the old-fashioned Jack-sotilan Democrats of a third and a half century ago. among them John Walker, aged '?. wno had a seat of honor between Stevenson and Todd. A magnificent audience of nearly &..".) persona greeted Judge U. W. Henry when he announced the programme for the afternoon. v "The moon risen at & o'clock," said Judge Henry, "and we have a treat In store for jou to-night. II. C. Bell of Marshall will address jou. Remember, the moon rises at & o'clock, and this day Is dedicated to Democracy In Fajette County, and we want you ail to enjoy It to the full extent." Steeniion Cheered. Then ho presented Jir. Stevenson and a great roar went up from the people, who were packed so close that they couldn't give their arms play to applaud, but they could yell, and tney did yell. Postmaster John Bingham was in the audienca taking notes for use "when Yates Is elected," for Bingham expects to dispense the plums In this district, a claim that Is disputed by John Brown, eminent friend of Governor Tanner. "Yates knows who nominated him. I guess," said a Brown captain to me. "Yates knows that it was Brown's crowd that voted for him at Peoria, aad he knows that Bingham and bis mafia were for Reeves clear through the piece. Brown will have something to sny, and Bingham will be a dead one as soon as his term as- Postmaster is out." "if John Brown had been the boss of Fayette County." sneered a friend of Bingham, "the Fayette delegation would have been for Hanecy at Peoria, and a few mora like It would have salted Yates's goose forever. I guess Yates knows a hawk from a handsaw, and he. won't forget his friends. Another thing: Bingham was on the side of Hamlin, and Hamlin will side with hint whenever jobs are dispensed. Brown la shrouded with the balance of Tanner's political family. Just watch the smoke from Bingham's pipe after election day." It makes little odds which ids receives the smiles of Y'ates now. for after November the candidate wUl have no further use for votes or friends be will bo a political cadaver himself, and Brown and Bingham can maul each other as much as they please. I didn't see the Republican candidate for the Senate. "Hash" Hunt, But 1 am told that he Is wearing the old hickory shirt be wore six years ago when he made such a persistent search for votes and ran behind his ticket In fact, was the lowest man on the ticket. "Hash" Is trying to hook the farmers this year, but the bait is stale It ls the same crop of flshworms he used in 1S91, and by that 1 mean his make-up as & farmer In hard luck is not a dazzling success In the campaign. Another eminent statesman present was Tommy Edwards of Coffecn. a Populist of the Jtlddle-of-the-Road variety, who seeks not so much the succe-s of principles as he docs the defeat of Democrats who stand practically on the same plalform as himself. Blwards and hl3 Ilk made a play for points two years ago and pledged themselves to tako enough votes from Tom Jett to lnsuro his defeat. They sing a lower tune this year, but the refrain is the same and Jett will have 1.000 more majority than he had In ISM. Appeal to Reason. Jtr. Stevenson's address here this nftcr-noon was a splendid effort. The day was pleasant and the Immense crowd furnished an Inspiration for him. He addressed himself not to the prejudices and passions, but to the Judgment and reason, of the people. He talked for a short time about the Boers and pointed out that they were fighting for what the heroes of the Revolution fought tor I tho right to govern tnemseives and air. Stevenson could not understand why th greatest free Government on the world's) footstool could not express a word of sympathy for them. He read from Lincoln's utterances In 15l. when he expressed his fear of the rower of the wealth of country, and In comment said: "That sounds like a Democratic speech, don't It? But vre are not accused this year of making Republican speeches If we quota from Abraham Uncoln. The Republicans dare not quote blm, for they have been drifting awav from the Reaubllcan party of Uncoln and Seward for many years, and now have reached a point where there la no resemblance between the party of Lincoln and the party as it now Is. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution are two Instruments that bclons exclusively to the Democracy this year. No Republican has use for either In his) speeches. What would Lincoln say to-day In the presence of the gigantic trusts and corporations that have absorbed the Republican party? "The Democratic party In Congress and your Congressman. Jir. Jett, was one of tho number placed Itself en record attalnst the trust evil. You must recognize It as an evil nnd a menacing one. ami one that can be dealt with only by legislation. You know Its history, how recent It has grown to such gigantic proportions, and you know tho party in power has not lifted a finger to it out. Now. into whose hands mill yoj give the power to strangle It? Into tho hands of the party In power? Will you give this sacred duty to the friends or the victim;! of the trusts? I want to ask if any of you have heard that tho trusts have contributed to the Democratic party7 "Choose ye which road ye will take. It you believe trusts are a good thing don't vote the Democratic ticket. Democrats are enemies of trusts." Very effective was Jir. Stevenson on Imperialism, nnd his closing words, quoted from Jir. Lincoln and adopted by the Democracy, will linger In the minds of his hearers for weeks: "We plant ourselves on the rock of the Declaration of Independence, nnd all the gates of hell shall not prevail against us." Todd IVell Received. He was followed by the glee club and Jfr. Todd, who pleased the audience with his magnificent voice and vigorous. logical treatment of the pending questions. Jir. Todd never has trouble in holding an audience, and It makes no difference how lata the hour when he is called upon. Congressman Jett closed the afternoon programme with n short, crisp address. Jett Is more a favorite here than ever, and his reception was almost affectionate. Predictions of 1.000 majority for him 'n Fayetto County were made to-day. To-night Henry C Bell of JIarshall delivered his famous address on tho vital issues to a large and enthusiastic crowd. J. 1, PICKSBIKO. i iVx-.-i, "U--" "r --fa-'' . rzzz?- ri'ajiKSr.-.Jy.vs.fcTWr.-
