KLAHOMA CITY TIMES,

Look Out For it.
IAHOMA CITY TIMES, PUB. CO,
H, W. Sawyer. Msnislne Editor
Mort. L- Btxler, Associate Bdltor.
Of Oklahoma City.
Uclow we publish an eilrnct from
the editorial columns of the Gazette
of May. To <juito a number of
our people who came here a long time
after ihe opening, tlieser eminesences
of Pioneer Journalism, will be very
interesting, they show what editorial
experience can do in a new country.
They will be doubly interesting to
those who came here on the 22nd and
have watched the antic$ of the Jour-
nalist of 25 years editorial exper-
ience. We have more of them -look
out for them:
Is'nt it rather queer that the men
whom the millitary couldn't keep
out of Oklahoma, in accordance with
the president's proclamation, are the
very men whom they are now sup-
porting so zealously?
The official organ for Oklahoma
offered to do the same work for South
Oklahoma at ten per cent less than
one-half the price charged Oklahoma.
In common with all chippies, if it
makes its board and clothes at home
it counts all it makes on the outside
The antics of the "two headed
lady" otherwise known as the "Scott
Bros., to avoid in the Journal any
mention of other local papers is
amusing. It is as if the dwarfs in
a show imagined, that the public
would prefer the dwarf* to the giants,
unless the giants first recicved recog-
nition from the dwarfs! It is to be
hoped that the "two headed lady"
"Kkking Bird" and the other Kan-
sas dwarfs will keep up their niutal
admiration show, even if the public
buy no tickets.
An Expose of ths Thieving C'ty
To-morrow we will publish an ar-
ticle on the financial showing made
by the city, and we will show that all
our charges are truo, we will give
them a complete expose and will show
the report of Captain Stiles in its
trua color. Look out for it.
We are happy to note the arrival of
Mr Cbas \V Meacbam and wife from
Kentucky, They came in last night
and will make their home with us. Mr.
Meacham is a young man of excellent
business qualifications, and lias capital
to cariy on the furniture business in a
very satisfactory manner He will do
business at the old stand of Mr Reed
whom he has bought out and will fully
maintain the inviable reputation that
Mr. Heed's furniture establishment has
earned. Mrs. Meacbam is an accomp-
lished young lady from Kentucky and
will be a will be a valuable addition to
our society circle. Mr. and Mrs.
Meacham has a hearty welcome to our
city and all its pleasures and joys will
be theirs in the future.
RESIST THE ROBBERS
PAY NO OCCUPATION TAX,
Wo understand that the city au-
thorities, so-called, will again intro-
duce their highway robbery methods,
and attempt to collect the occupation
tax. This should be resisted. No
one should pay any tax to these
thieves and thugs, who have already
robbed the people of two or three
thousand dollars. If they attempt to
oollect, refuse to pay. An attorney
will attend to your case without any
fee. Resist the Robbers bv all means.
The turn of affairs la the ditch project
has pleased some and is making others
mad. Nobody wants an open ditch back
of their lota, and some of those who were
ill favor of a ditch between Main and First,
are now strong anti-ditch men. It makes
a little difference whose ox is being gored.
If the ditch must rnn through the city und
be an open ditch, we dont know of a better
place to run It than the route last selected
There is a large strip between the Semi-
nole* and citizens survey, that was laid off
in lots, such of these lots as are needed,
can be purchased and used for that purpose,
this would allow 'Judge Rlossom to realix.e
his dream, and would furnish excellent
fishing facilities for some of the lovers of
sport in that block. It seems especially
fitting that the ditch should run down this
block. At the meeting last night a com-
mittee was appointed to raise |4000, the
amount necessary to purchase ,'hcse lots.
The money to be paid upon the completion
of the citch, this is business like talk;
now let all those who are in favor of the
public enterprise work to bring the ditch
through between Main and Grand. We
will see how much is wind and how much
or it school inters sr.
The people of our city are laboring
under a serious disadvantage in re-
gard to their public shools. The cit-
izens as soon as other pressing mat-
ters are adjusted, will take this mat-
ter fully in hand and a thorough sys-
tem of public schools will be organ-
ized and maintained by a voluntary
tax of a small amount on each lot.
The people arc fully aware of the im-
portance of this move and nothing
short of military interference will
prevent its culmination in what is
most desired, that is free schools for
every body. Poor children must be
ducated and none deprived of its
benefits on account of ; cuniary eui-
Couch, Stiles and their abettors
are responsible for the present state
of affairs, and they must be responsi-
ble if the present unfortunate state
of school interests arc compelled to
remain as tliey are.
STILL ANO TllKR ALL 0 TMENT.
From what we can learn of late.
Capt. Stiles is acquiring more power
and using it as a matter of course, in
behalf of his favorites, who openly
violated the law on the 22nd of
April. The latest allotment, is in
the lumber line. Some days ago a
colered man who is contesting one of
the Couches on a claim south of town,
cut a couple of saw logs off of a dead
tree, and hired a ulan to haul them to
Estes, and Ourtridges saw mill, in
South Oklahoma. The Couches went
to the man who was hired to haul the
logs and frightened him out of haul-
ing one of them, sd the colored man
took the team and hauled the other
one himself. The Couches then re-
ported the matter to Stiles as we are
informed, and Bill and Abe Chuch
went to the saw mill with an orderly,
told the proprietors of the mill to saw
the lumber, and givo it to Couch say-
ing, that such were the orders of the
Provost Marshall. Just where Stiles
got so much authority is hard to tel',
such things would do all right in des-
potic Russia, but here in America it
is going just a little to far, it is a
disgrace to our country that such
things can happen, and the govern-
ment officials high and low wink at
our entire stock of

American editors are not the only
ones who run the risk of having their
brains addled by nonsensical ques-
tions. Some brilliant Englishman
writes to the editor of a local paper to
say that he wants to ride one hundred
uiileB in eleven hours, snd he wishes
to know how many stopages he is to
make, and what to eat and drink.
The editor in question could not an-
swer this earnest inquirer, but re-
ferred the query to his readers, so-
liciting their assistance.—Locomo-
