Rotten St. Louis
Editor Independent: That the dem
ocrats will carry the spring elections
here by an overwhelming majority is
& foregone conclusion. The reasons
for this are not the much-abused Nes
bit law and police interference at the
polls, as has been alleged, but re
publican rascality which has been
disclosed in both city and natfonal
administrations is causing decent re
publicans to blush and stay at home
or go to the polls and vote the demo
The Zeigenhein city administration
was one which so reeked with boodl
lng, bribery, misuse of money and
padded pay rolls that the convictions
and sentences to the penitentiary of
members of the council and house of
delegates made the unsuspecting stand
aghast at the startling revelations.
Many republicans declared then that
they would remain with their party in
national elections,' but in city politics
would not vote their ticket.
Now, things in national affairs are
so unsatisfactory that many declare
they will never vote the republican
ticket again. That the unseating of
J. J. Butler by congress was all right
no one denies, but the seating of Wag
ner was wrong. This wrong was in
tensified by paying him for five
months' time before the election in
which he claimed to have been elected
It develops also that the postoffice
department at Washington helped the
"get-rich-quick" concerns in St Louis
to swindle thousands of people out of
their money and was bribed to with
hold a fraud order forbidding these
concerns the use of the mails.
Besides, the whitewashing and re
tention in office of Postmaster Baum-
hoff, after the inspectors for the de
partment had found him guilty of
making immoral propositions to
young women employes of the post
office and offering them advancement
if iiiey would accede to his wishes, is
calling forth much comment and cen
It seems that President- Roosevelt
and Postmaster General Payne havs
connived to condone this crime, and
suppress, as far as possible, the pub
lication of the facts concerning it
People say that while President Roose
velt has the reputation of being a
brave man he is a moral coward and
hypocrite, or he would not allow Mr.
Baumhoff to retain this position after
such charges had been proven by the
affidavits of reputable young ladles.
It seems that the republican admin
istration of national affairs is as rot
ten as was that of this city under
Zeigenhein and his republican outfit.
So who can expect other than a dem
A CONVERTED REPUBLICAN.
St Louis, Mo.
A workingman has a right to eat
and the federal courts will never in
terfere with that right. Some dav,
however, they may issue an injunc
tion forbidding a workingman from
touching bread or meat, or traveling
along a road where he may come in
contact with it. The St. Louis court
does not deny the right of a working
man to quit work, but it issues an in
junction prevepting him from taking
the necessary steps to do so. That is
the order that a gold standard-Cleveland-appointed
federal judge issued to
the employes of the Wabash system,
and he Intends -to send every one of
them to jail, without trial by jury, it
they fail to obey it
