M, H. GUNSENHOUSER,
one may not be over sanguine to believe that, once the full
_________________meaning of that report is exposed, a majority of the Senators :
One Dollar • Six months Fifty Cents wi 11 laek thebardihood to vote for it no matter hpw agreeable
* ' ’ ' it may be to their own pi-ivate code of morality. The inter-
ests behind Senator Lorimer and the interests whiqh uti-
| doubted.ty bought his seat for him, evidently fancied that
if they could avert anything like a party issue they would
encounter no opposition.—Dallas News.

Should Billy Sheehan go to the United State senate
from New York it would be in keeping with the policy of
.ihat party to keep its corrupt men to the front.
It is reported that Editor Billups will not return home
nntil the Sentinel court town proposition is knocked out
lest he lose some of his political feathers in the scrap.
If our representative, Mr. Harris proposes to divide
his time between the legislature and a newly wedded wife
he will, perhaps, go on record as not favoring night sess-
ion of the law making body.
The Hon. B. S. McGuire has married again, He was
divorced from his first wife about a year ago, who in turn
married an Indian, evidently preferring him>o the white
man. Her association with MbGuire must have educated
her up to that point.
It is about time the question of the spring election was
being agitated. We are not positive as to which election
law we will operate under, whether the grandfather clause
•or the ribbon ballot, but one thing is true, it must not go
by default as it did last year.
The principal object of the managers of the Republican
party in Okluhoroa is to conduct a campaign then make ap-
lication for a federal job. The management is then turned
over to some other favorite and he gets in line for a job at
the pie counter. The scheme is a good one fur the pie hun-
ter but disasterous to the party.
The science of flying comes pretty high, measured by
human life. During 1910 thirty-five aviators gave up their
lives attempting to perfect the flying machine. It is useless
to ask “is it worth it,” as the thirty-five who have “gone be-
fore” were pretty sure they would be sacrificed sooner or
later in the interest of progress along this line.
The legislature is again in session, the best brain of de-
mocrcy assembled to enact laws for the people, and what
will the harvest be. Can anyone tell. If it is to be judged by
the past not much good can be expected to come from this
session. Democracy in Oklahoma m its efforts to retain con-
trol of the state has lost sight of the interests of the peo-
ple. Parties should be defeated at the polls when they be-
gin to wear life preservers at the expense of the people.
It is quite refreshing to note the stand taken by the
President in the job of whitewashing the standpat Re-
publicans and democrats attempted on Senator Lorimer of
Illinois. There seems to be no question but that Lorimer
bought enough democrats to insure his election, but the
Senate committee which investigated the [case reported he
could have been elected without the purchased votes, there-
fore his election was untainted and entitled to his seat, and
had it not been for the progressive republicans aided by the
President the chances are that Lorimer’s coat of whitewash
would have saved him.
We fully concur in the following from the Dallas News
of recent date: “The resolution of Attorney General Wick-
ersham to demand the imprisonment of those convicted of
violating the anti-trust law is the culmination of a long se-
ries of events., A corporation that can fix prices as is wills
can easily reooup Itself for any fine it may be compelled to
pay the Governmeet. It has been the practice to recoup
themselves from the purees of their patrons, but the window
glass trust varied the proceedure somewhat by forcing its
employees to reimburse it for the fine they were compelled
to pay. If ihe folly and futillitv of fining corporations for
offense had not already been demonstrated, the action of
the window glass trust would have compelled recourse to
the more drastic penalty prescribed by the Sherman act,
unless the Government was to suffer the law to be mocked
by those who violated it. Except, perhaps, in the case of
the Landis fine of the Stondard Oil Company, which, how-
ever, was not countenanced by the supreme court, none of
the fines inflicted has equalled the profit derived from the
violation of the law, so that even if the trusts did forbear
to recoup themselves the practice of merely fining them is
equivalent to a license. It makes the government a partner
in the profits of extortion.

Mrs. Lois Orcott, 131 N. Lin-

am glad to recommend Doan,s
Kidney Pills. For many years I
suffered .from Kidney disease
and often the pains through my
loins were so severe that I did
not think I could bear them.
My back became weak and I had
to lie down to ease the pain.
Doctors failed to help me and I
was steadily growing worse,
when someone advised me to.try
Doan’s Kidney Pills. I procured
a supply and improved from the
beginning of their use. Judg-
ing from my experience with
Doan’s Kidney Pills, I consider
them the best remedy to be had
for kidney and bladder trouble.”

S .ME time ago the Secretary of the Commercial Club
received a communication form Wm. R. Hurst that he had
•offered a prize of fifty thousand dollars to the first man who
would cross the continent in a flying machine, and enquired
what Cordell would give to secure the birds over this route.
The Club being a bit reluctant aboqt undertaking to pledge
anv amount, The Herald-Sentinel offered $1150 to have the
bird men light here and take dinner. In this connection we
would state that we need a little money to carry out this
proposition and that back subscription handed in during
the next week or two would earn our blessing and an invita-
tion to take dinner with the; birds. New and advance sub-
scriptions entitled to the same courtesies.
Is could hardly conceivable, even to its utmost inteler-
ant critic, that the United States Senate as a whole would
sanction the committee report in the Lorimer case. The
ethical implication of that report is too low and sinister too
repugnant to even au ordinary sense of morality, to permit
one to imagine that among ninety odd senators there would
not be a considerable number to ptotest against it, to disa-
vow, at least, the principal it inyolves. The utmost ao be
apprehended that such of these being in the woeful minori-
ty, would content themselves merely with registering their
votes against its adoption. Happily these men, whatever
theia number, have resolved on a more active kind of oppo-
sition. They will not only vote, but declaim against it, and

Qii&m excuses are not infrequontlj
offered to account for the lateness of
the trains on a certain railroad run-
ning into this city, out the limit was
. cached the other clay
The train was a local from Yonkers
stopping at every station on the licr
and at nearly as many points where
no station was to be seen. Finally,
after having lost 32 minutes en route
the train rolled with much delibera
tion into New York—the station thai
is. As the passengers filed out ir
>nditlons of mind varying from those,
of hopeless despair and resignation
to those of ftnpatience and even, wi
regret to say, of profanity, a mild
looking little man ventured to ask thc-
conductor what had caused the delay
The conductor spat judiciously and
vouchsafed an explanation that to his
mind was apparently eminently con
elusive and satisfactory:
“We were running behind an ex-
press train," he aald.—New York

“I want to thank you from the
bottom of my heart,” wrote C
B. Rader, of Lewisburg, W. Va.,
“for the wonderful double bene-
fit I got from Electric Bitters,

case of stomach trouble and of
rheumatism, from which I had
been an almost helpless sufferer
for years. It suited my case as
though made just for me.” For

Must Be Worried
The Sentinel leader in its last
issue lam basts The Herald-Sen-
tinel for publishing the fact that
the Commerial Club of ‘Cordell
was taking steps to prevent the
establishing of a court town at
Sentinel, Just as i f vVe were the
whole thing, Cordell Commdrical
Club, Cordell and about four-
tifths of the county. We had
nothing to do with the position
taken by the opposition of the
Sentinel Court town, only gave
the news as we found it. It ac-
cuses us of giving away the se-
crets of the club then lambasts
for furnishing them the news.
But we will publish the Article
and permit our readers to read
what that hired man says:
A noise-maker, disturbing
editor over at Cordell has given
the Cordeil Commercial Club
away, in regard io Sentinel’s
wanting to be a county court
town. The club ought to have
him trained better than that.
That editor says the commercial
club is going to point out to the
voters wherein an additional tax
will be levied on the people,
should the court be established
here. Of course, there is more
bugaooo than anything else to
that, and not many voters will
be caught on such bait. Does it
ever occur to the voter in the re-
mote west ends of the county,
that he pays a tax, a very high
one, when he travels twenty to
thirty miles to settle some little
old pig suit, or any small suit,
when he could drive to Sentinel,
one to ten miles, and get back
home for dinner and take up the
afternoon for farm work losing
only half a day? A railroad fare,
a long drive, two days and one
night out is quite a difference to
the farmers, or the man in the
towns, and as the man in the
towns, and as the law allows us
a court,(it is but justic to us, too,)
the people are going to try to get
it No one wants to “equally di-
vide the court business,” though
this part of the county has some
business and some folks. No
one wants to antagonise the
county seat. No one wants to
bully the Cordeil Commercial
Club and no one is going to hate
the Cordell Commercial Club or
that windy editor (who is not a
democrat, by the way, and who
seeks by all means to tear .up the
democratic party witfaunis little
pegging awl) to bully them, ei-
ther. The voters of this end of
the county worked like beavers
for the new court house at Cor-
dell. Thep stood up and voted
fqr that $75,000 bond issue like
men. and if you, Mr. Windy Ed-
itor, or any of your would-be
friends think they are soft-shell-
ed on standing up for their own
rights, just drop down and take
a look at the situation.
The above establishes our guilt
as the man behind the movement
to kill the Sentinel oourt town
proposition. It also establishes
the hired man at Sentinel as an
exp* rt diagnocian or whatever
you please to call him.
He imtimate that the farmers
in the west end of the county are
greot scrappers and are contin-
uously in law suits Little old
Pigs Suits he calls them. A
glance at the records of the
County court discloses that the
great majority of suits brought
here from Sentinel are prosecu-
tions under the Billups Booze
bill, that but very few other
suits are brought faom the ter-
ritory proposed to betaken into
that oourt town district, hence
we cannot qelieve that the lawa-
biding farmers os that commun-
ity care very much about the lo-
cation of a court town]at Sentinel
However if this is a party fight
we will turn the scrap over to
our estimal contempory the
Beacon to finish.
