~ Appreciation for Bind [sic] Chaplain of U. S. House ~
Rev. Henry N. COUDEN, the blind chaplain of the House of
Representatives, has lately had to endure a further affliction. His
devoted wife, who for many years has guided his steps every morning to
the Capitol for the opening exercises of the House has suffered a
paralytic stroke, and his daughter has now taken her place. In
appreciation of his many years of service the House, on motion of one
of the Republican leaders has adopted a special resolution granting a
substantial increase to Mr. COUDEN’S salary.
A Democratic member from Indiana interposed a characteristic objection
to such “extravagance”, but he was promptly overruled.
~ Robbers Caught ~
Stanley C. DAVIS, alias KING and Joseph HAWKINS, the youngsters who
were arrested by Carrol BYRD for the robbery of Funk’s Drug Store at
Festus, were taken to St. Louis Thursday by Sheriff CLARK and United
States Post Office Inspector, B. F. CAIN. the boys were wanted by the
Post Office apthorities[sic] for robbery of the post office at Maupin,
Missouri. It is understood that they have the postal stuff cached in
St. Louis and they were taken there to locate it as well as the
remainder of the stuff stolen from the drug store.
Davis, altho only about 21 years old is said to have a police record
from coast to coast and to have Bertillion measurements in most of the
principal cities of the country. It is not known whether they will be
prosecuted here for the robbery of the drug store or turned over to
Uncle Sam, but in any event the young men face a long term of penal
servitude as they have admitted their guilt to both cases or so we are

~ Cost of the War ~
Fourteen nations made up of fifty different races are involved in the
war which has made Europe a slaughterhouse for two years and a half,
and according to the latest estimates, a toll of more than six million
lives has been taken at the war fronts, to say nothing of the thousands
of non combatants who have died.
The contending nations are: Russia, Italy, Ronmania[sic], Serbia,
Japan, Montenegro, Portugal,
Central Powers - Germany, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Bulgaria.
In addition to the dead, placed at six million, it I estimated by the
War Study Society of Copenhagen that the wounded on Dec. 1st, totaled
13,119,516 and that the invalids numbered 3, 935,938.
And the missing, thos whose fates? will never be known, it is estimated
will reach nearly five million.
The heaviest losses of the war, as estimated by the War Study Cociety
up to the first of the month are distributed as follows:
And daily estimated cost to each of the leading beligerants is:
Great Britain $30,000,000
New engines of death that had never before been utilized in warfare
made their appearance in the great European struggle, among them being
submarines, aeroplanes, Zeppelins, tanks or ?????? ????? ????, liquid
fire, and asphyxiating gases.
~ Changes in Railway Lawyer ~
Norman A. MOZLEY of Bloomfield, who for many years has represented the
Iron Mountain Railroad in this and other southeast Missouri counties
has resigned his position to succeed to the position held by Judge
Moses WHYBARK as General Attorney for the Frisco. Judge WHYBARK gave up
the place which he has held since the Frisco came into this territory
and has made a splendid official for that railroad. MOZLEY has made a
splendid reputation as a successful lawyer, and has endeared himself to
the people of the county with whom he associated during this trips
here. He is an orator of the convincing sort and is a man of large
information, of broad gauge, of liberal ideas and of high ideals as to
social and civic life. He will no doubt make Cape Girardeau his
headquarters and is sure to be a force in that city. Mr. H. H.
LARRIMOR, who has been assistant to Judge James F. GREEN at the general
law office of the Missouri Pacific Ry. in St. Louis will have charge of
Jefferson, Iron and Washington Counties. J. C. SHEPPARD at Poplar Bluff
will have charge of BUTLER, STODDARD, RIPLEY and WAYNE and W. C.
RUSSSELL at Charleston will have charge of the remaining couties[sic]
of Southeast Missouri.
~ Pierre L. CLERC Convicted ~
Pierre L. CLERC, charged with assault with intent to kill Felix
LEUTZINGER was convicted and fined $100.00 by a jury in the circuit
court this week. It is said that the jury originally stood 8 for
acquittal and 4 for conviction and on the next ballot 9 for acquittal.
CLERC’s defense was that he was temporarily insane, due to the fact
that he claimed that LEUTZINGER had invaded and despoiled his home.
LEUTZINGER denied all or any improper action and the trial resulted as
stated. CLERC will not appeal from the decision and it is hoped that
this will be the end of the matter, altho there is some talk that CLERC
will sue LEUTZINGER for damages.

~ News Comment And Editorial ~
The United States Supreme Court has upheld what is known as the
Web-Kenyon Act, and every state will have complete control of the sale
of intoxicating liquors. Hereafter prohibition states may forbid the
conveyance into the state of liquors, and consequently interstate
carriers would not be protected for violation of such a law. It looks
very much as though the prohibition idea is gaining ground constantly
and it is propheted by many well informed men that the Republican and
Democratic parties in their next national platform utteranaces will
declare for prohibition. What we think, more likely, is that William
Jennings BRYAP will again seek the Presidency as the nominee of a
National Prohibition Pary.
Col. W. F. CODY is reported dying at this home near Denver, Colorado.
He is better known to the youth and to most of the citizens of the
country as “Buffalo Bill”. He is about the last of the picturesque
figures of the country famous as a mighty hunter and scout and[sic] did
some real service for his country, without ever having gained the
reputation of being a gun man, the, there were perhaps few men in the
country more expert than he in the use of rifle and revolver
“The Leak” at Washington is still agitating Congress.When men make
fortunes on the stock market, on advance information of Presidential
action likely to affect the market, it is time to make a thorough
investigation and ascertain and make public the names of the guilty
parties. On another occasion it will be remembered that fortunes were
made on the market by the giving of such advance information and no one
ever brought to account. If a leak exists it certainly ought to be
The Children’s Code legislation to come before the Legislature at this
session is very important and should be adopted. The code in brief
provides for the establishment of juvenile courts in the counties; for
the payment of pensions by the counties to poor mothers with little
children whose fathers are dead or in institutions, so that they may
raise their own children at home; for the protection of children born
out of wedlock, compelling the fathers to support them whent he fathers
can be reached; for the guardianship of child workers for the revision
of laws pertaining to marriage, and for many other measures of a
related nature, all designed to carry out the principle of child
protection and nurture. Some of these details we will discuss later.
The code calls for no appropriations of money by the state, and the
expenditure of money by the counties rests with the counties
themselves. There can be no objection to the code, therefore, on
financial grounds. It can be considered solely on its merits as an
advanced and enlightened system of laws for the welfare of the children
of Missouri. There is no party question involved in it. Whatever may be
the differences of opinion as to detail, every member of the
Legislature ought to be for it and work for it.
