The Election ei Bird McGuire
Means Much. 4
Guthrie, O. T., July 5.—J. If.
I) etwiler, editor ot the Enid Echo,-
the ruoogi.i/.vfd Populist organ of
Garfield county, in his last issue
deserted Populi'tie principals and
comes (lilt for McGuire, giving bis
reasons for ihe same. The "swal-
low" act of the Democrats at the
Enid Convention does not go well
with tli * rank and tiie Populists, and
hence the movement on the part ot
leaders to line up for the best inter-
ests of the territory. Editorially,
Detwiler, in his Echo says the fol-
"The statehood bill, by agree-
ment, stands '.'it the senate calendar
for consideration in December."
Evidently the political managers of
the senate desiro to ascertain the
political situation ot the territory, as
developed by the election in Novem-
ber. Tiio Republican party now
lias control of both branches of
( ongress, and no matter how the
elections go in November the mem
bera of the present Congress will be
there to act on the bill in December.
It may, therefore, be conceded that
if the territory give a big Republican
majority in November the lull will
pass; if not, it will go down to
d( feat. While this seems lik" taking
an unjust political advantage, ii must
be admitted that any other party in
power would do the same thing.
"Whether we like it or not, that
is the situation that confronts us
this campaign. A vote for Mo-
Guire is a vote for statehood, and a
vote for Croat) is Rgainst statehood.
If we elect Cross as delegate this
I all he could not cast any vote for
any political reform we advocate.
Ii we elect McGuire lie could not
vott; for any of the measures we
oppose, bill bis election would as-
sure the passage of the statehood
"•That would enable us to elect
two congressmen and two United
Slates senators who could vote on
all the measures that would give
Oklahoma the same power in the
senate that the state of New York
"Thin fall the Populists of Okla
homa will have no party emblem on
the ticket. We will be Iree to vote
for either of the other party candi-
dates, and, as neither of them can
vote i:i Congress on any partisan
question we <Jo not compromise our
political convictions by a vote for
either; The Populists who think
more of Bill Cross than statehood
will vote for the knight of the
gripsack. But he who wants to
see the star of Oklahoma shine in
ti e blue field of our country's 11aq;
will vote for McGuire."

To Heaven twines thy steadfast eye
With hope that ne'er shall yet depart
Thy burning dream it cannot diu

Kural Free Delivery.
Everyone does not know who is
entitled to the advantage of having
their mail delivered free by rural
carriers, and the following paragraph
taken from a circular issu d by Ihe
postoflice department fully explains
the question, ll reteres to persons
living in a vicinity where a route is
laid onl and established:
"Any person living on or nearthe
route and not within tiie corporate
liinite of any town or within 80 rods
of any post office, who desire hia
mail deposited at a given goint on
the line of the routh by the carrier
may provide and erect a suitable box
or crane on the roadside, located in
such manners as to be reached as
conveniently as practicable by the
carrier without dismounting from
the vehicle or horse, and such person
shall tile with the postmaster at the
post ofiice to which his mail is
addie:!;ied(which shall be one of the
postoflice 011 the route on either tide
of and next to the box or crane)
a request in writing for the delivery
ot his mail to the carrier for deposit
at the designated point, at tho risk
of the addressee. The •email bag or
satchel above described, as well as
the box or crane, must be provided

intended without cxpenee to the

The issue in which the Missouri
editor "told the truth" was the last
he eyer made. Now. in th" spring
time, when the dewlike diamonds
sparkle in the tender grass, when
sweet-throated birds makes melody

bers to this paper while it was

manly form of the Missouri editor
