permanent chairman who spoke this
.loplin. Mo. Feb. 2ii.- "Coiiceruln-;
national politics I wisli to say that
tills is our year" declared Joseph
K. Shannon of Kansas City the
state chairman in calling the demo-
cratic delegate convention to order
"All one has to do to he convinced
of it" said Mr. Shannon "is to talk
to those v 'omprise either wing of
th.- republ. l'urty today. The
Hoosevelt pet tell you that Tatt
can't be elect 'n fact we demo-
crats in Missoti. tf ve 11 great deal
to the Hoosevelt of the repub
lican party in tbU V te for they
were the originators 'lie idea of
adopting resoluttous h say in
substance that 'we he endorse
the many and splendid at nievements
of the administration of William
Howard Taft. However we favor
as our candidate for the second term
of that splendid administration. The-
"We democrats should lose no
sleep over whom our republican
friends shall nominate for J assure
you we can lick Hoosevelt as easily
as the Hoosevelt people say we can
lick Taft. It is a mere flip of a coin
so far as we are concerned wheth-
er it shall be Hoosevelt or Taft."
Shannon's remarks on the recent
election in St. Ixiuis brought interrup-
tion. "St. Louis." he said "had some
rotten elections " and before Shan-
non could complete his sentence I.
J. O'Donnal of St. Louis shouted "1
demand fair treatment for St. Louis."
Chairman Shannon ordered him to
sit dwit. "You are disgracing St.
I-ouis before the democrats of Mis-
souri" said O'Donnal. "There never
was fraud in the St. Louis ele--tion."

ClarVt Boom Launched.
.lopliu. Mo.. Feb. I'd. Champ
('lark's boom for the democratic nom-
ination for president "was formally
and vociferously launched here to-
day at the democratic state conven-
tion. The retirement of former (!ov-
rnor Joseph AW Folk from the race
leaves Missouri and the middle west
a clear field tor the speaker of the
house and now that the Clark-Foi
controversy ban been settled and
Clark has the definite Indorsement
of his native state it is believed
that sentiment In his favor will sweep
over the entire west from the Mis-
sipni to the Pacific.
While the speaker was confident
that he would be indorsed by today'.-'
state convention the voluntary
withdrawal of Folk from the race ten
days before the gathering has assur-
ed harmony in the party. Mr. Folk
has declared that he will rive his
best efforts to the cause of the dem-
ocracy and will do all in his power
to quier disaffection.
"It is necessary to the party wel-
fare that there be an end to dis-
cord" Mr. Folk is quoted as say-
ing "and I am willing to do .ill I
can to bring about thai internal
peace so necessary to the success
of the party."
While there is little doubt that 1"
Folk had stayed in the race he
would have been defeated in today'j
convention Missouri democrats have
a great admiration for their former

An Embarrassing Experience.
From all accounts the police were
busy all yesterday afternoon invest-
limiting different places where rumor
said that liquor was being sold. One
prominent business man had a rather
embarrassing experience in tills con-
nection. It seems the officers who
were looking into things in his neigh-
borhood dropped Into Ms place of
business and asked him if lie had any
objection to their searching his prem-
ises for joy water saying at the
same time they had no warrant to
make the search. ITeing chuck full
of righteous innocence the gentleman
in question told them they needed no
warrant to 'investigate-' his premises
but to have at it. Xow it so happen-
ed that only a short time before the
blue-coated minions of the law
struck this place a stranger had
dropped into the store accompanied
by a large and healthy appearing suit
case and gotten permission to leave
the said case with this merchant for
a short while. The officers saw the
suit case asked whose it was hefted
it and "investigated" it. Imagine the
said business man's surprise and cha-
grin when the opening of the case
brought to light a number of "oriainal
packages" which even in a wet coun-
try would sell for something like a
dollar a shot. The officers took the
case to headquarters and the stranger
who left it for a few minutes has not
shown up so far to claim his prop-
