the greatest element of chance in tlie matter.
That Oklahoma will remain a white man 'h
state is as certain as anything yet in the tu-
tu re can be.
This, however, is a critical election for the
republican party in Oklahoma. If they cannot
win in this election, it is extremely doubtful if
conditions will again arise in the next quarter
century which will offer the republicans any
real opportunity for victory in the state. Tn
deed, some of the most experienced and
shrewdest republican politicians of the state
freely express their opinion privately, to the
effect that if the republicans lose this election,
they will not again nominate a state ticket in
good faith for many years.
This being true, they cannot afford to lose
the strength of the negro vote, and we may ex-
pect to see one of the keenest legal battles in
the history of the state begin immediately I
after the primaries.
UNCLE JOE DID SPEAK
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE.)
THE NEGRO IN OKLAHOMA.
ONE phase of the "grandfather clause"
problem is well developed by the Oklaho-
man is the article which follows:
"It must be evident to all thoughtful
citizens that those persons who were m-
Btruniental in securing an injunction
against the submission of the proposed
"grandfather clause" amendment were
inspired neither by necrophilism nor zeal
in behalf of the general welfare but by tue
hope of continuing the black man as a po-
litical asset in Oklahoma.
"Back of the application for restraint
loomed the figure of Jim Harris political
boss and chairman of the republican slate
committee, who realized that il the propo-
sition is submitted thousands of white re
publicans will join with the democrats in
voting; for it find knew flint, ii adopted tlio
people-made law will stand every test as
to legality. Jim Harris knows that a ma-
jority of the voters of Oklahoma favor the
proposition because Caucasian supremacy
in Oklahoma is a vital necessity in Oklaho-
ma and in every other state where the
black man is becoming numerically strong.
"Residents in the western half of Ok
lahoma do not, many ol them, realize that
the negro question bus reached a critical
stage in Oklahoma, yet it is nevertheless a
fact. Every year thousands of negl'oes
settle in eastern Oklahoma, and in many
of the comities of that section they hold
the balance of power. Had the blacks not
slept on their lights they could have nomi-
nated a candidate for coagre^s in the
Third district of Oklahoma. There are to-
day thirty-eight negro officials in Musko-
gee county. They liave twenty three offi-
cials in agoner county, whevo the repub-
lican state chairman resides, and are ar-
ranging to put out a complete ticket in
that county. Okfuskee county lias eigh-
teen negro officials. There are Irom three
to thirty-eight, black men in office in twen-
ty counties of Oklahoma, 'including LMaine
and Logan counties on the west side. Lo-
gan county has a negro commissioner and
a negro member of the legislature.
"In a recent school election in Wag-
oner county five negroes were elected di-
rectors to take charge of five white schools.
"These are facts which should enable
thinking men to realize what negro Immi-
gration is doing in Oklahoma.
"While' there are many republicans
who will vote for the proposed amend-
ment, there are, on the other hand, some
democrats who are inclined to oppose the
restrictive clau.se which would <'ompel ed-
ucational qualification. One of these was
fomd in Kl Iteno the other day. He was.
asked what he would do in the event ne-
groes became predominant in El Reno.
" "I would leave the to\vn,' was his
" 'Is that what you would do if von
resided :n the Third congressional district,
where richest oil and gas wells in the
world are located and some of the finest
farming lands in Oklahoma?' was asked.
" 'Is that the situation there?' lie in-
" ' Yes.'
" 'I'm for the "grandfather clause",'
was his determined response.
"This Kl Reno citizen like many oth-
ers who are not in close contact with the
negro question, had not seen the matter fn
"There is another phase of the ques-
tion that many persons have not consid-
ered. It is the matter of taxes in the fu-
ture. There are 1,100,000 negroes and only
700,000 white persons in the state of Miss-
issippi, yet the whites pay 00 per cent of
the taxes, while the negroes get 60 per cent
of the tax funds for their schools.
"This is the 'white man's burden'
which the people of Oklahoma must expect
to assume unless they act promptly to era-
dicate the notion that Okahoma is "the
black man's heaven,' a notion which Book-
er T. Washington and others are cultivat-
ing among the negroes of the southern
states, telling them that the negroes have
more liberties in Oklahoma than in any
other southern state and that in Okahoma
the negro is permitted to hod public office.
"The subject is deserving of serious
"THK N'F/JRO Ql'KSTlON IN OK-
LAHOMA IS DRVKLOI'ING A CRISIS.
"It is no.longer presented in the form
of theory but as a grave condition.
"Unless the negro is restricted he will
soon become a menace."
As the election draws nearer, the import-
ance of the adoption of this bill becomes more
evident and at the same time the certainty of
its adoption becomes clearer, ti is generally
understood, however, that in the event of its
adoption a determined effort will be made by
the republican party managers to tie the law
up in the federal courts, in the hope that it
may not be placed in effect by the time of the
general election in November This is really
FACTS are funny things; they uttery refuse
to give place to the desires of individuals.
It was well said centuries ago that no man
by taking thought add a cubit to his stat-
. And today, in the state of Oklahoma, it is
possible to change the political situation
by wishing it were otherwise, or by closing the
eyes to obvious facts.
There are in Shawnee a great many Ross
supporters, many of whom are among the best
citizens of the city. They are enthusiastic in
their support of their candidate, and are un-
willing to accept as true any statement which
is not favorable to his candidacy.
Consequently the latest summing up of the
political situation, as recently published iu the
Herald, has to many of them seemed sufficient
cause for serious umbrage. The fact that such
summing up did not promise success to the
Ross candidacy lias seemed to them a direct
affront to such candidacy.
Your attitude on the question is not well
taken, gentlemen. Your objections should be
directed against the facts you do not like; not
against the newspaper which merely called at-
tention to them.
No man who is fully acquainted with the
general situation over the state and is uncon-
nected (lirei'tlv with anv of the campaigns be-
ing conducted, will claim that the statements
made bv The Herald Thursday morning are
not true. You may wish tliev were otherwise,
you may refuse to believe them, but they are
Kor those gentlemen who are attached to
the Ross candidacy, and who are determined to
follow him to the end of the chapter, whether
it be to victory or defeat, there can he nothing
but praise from any reasonable man. It is such
spirit as that which makes it worth while to
lead a forlorn hope. But such action can be
reasonably taken only with open eyes.
The man who closes his eyes to facts which
are perfectly obvious to any observer of poli-
tics. who refuses to believe anything which
conflicts with his own desires, who insists that
all the rest of the state is just like Shawnee and
that Ross is sure to win, and who is supporting
Ross not merely from principle, but because lie
thinks he is a winner, is not acting reasonably.
No mail is so blind as he who will nor see.
It may be good sport and some profit to
deceive one's opponents. But it is difficult to
see where there is either pleasure or profit in
deceiving one's self.
And the man who believes that (lie Ross
candidacy has developed generally fo an ex-
tent sufficient to make it possible for him to
win is deceiving himself.
The strongest Ross point in Oklahoma is
Shawnee. There is Ross strength at Muskogee,
Lawton, Oklahoma City, Chickasha, Kl Reno;
in the country in Garvin, McLain. Grady, Co-
manche and Muskogee counties; whatever
other strength he has is scattering.
He ought to have more than this. The is-
sues on which he is running justify more than
this. The character of personal campaign he
has made deserves more than this. Rut never-
theless, this is what he has—and it is not suf-
ficient to justify any reasonable man in the be-
lief that he can win.
One thing he possibly can do. By staying
in the game to the end. and holding fast all the
sunport he has won he may be able to secure
the nomination of Murray. And it is to the
interest of those who desire to see Cruee de-
feated at any cost, to sustain the Ross strength.
From now on out it is a fight between Cruee
and Murray, and the Ross candidacy is in the
interest of Murray—not purposely, certainly,
but nevertheless a fact.
There are a great many people in Shawnee
who will not like these facts. Rut facts they
are, and as remarked before, facts are funny
things, and will not be changed to suit individ-
As an immediate step toward greater pros-
perity, the farmers of Pottawatomie county
should to a far greater extent embark in the
stock raising industry. All over this county
there are farms whicli should be used only as
stocks farms, being farmed to corn and cotton
year after year the soil meanwhile washing
awav and the ability to produce decreasing
every year. And in any event, the successful
raiser of stock has the most profitable branch
of farming. Conditions are not so very dif-
ferent from those which prevailed when that
great old Roman authority on agriculture was
asked what is the most profitable business.
Promptly he answered, "Successful cattle rais-
ing." "What is next profitable business?" lie
was asked, .lust us promptly he repied, "Mod-
erately successful cattle raising," "And what
business ranks next to that in profit?" aslu?d
the inquirer. "Unsuccessful cattle raising"
was the answer. And with the prices of meats
going skyward, and the limited number of
farmers engaged in the business, it certainly
looks as though Pottawatomie county fanners
are overlooking something. As it is, there Is
almost no breeding stock, either cattle, hogs or
sheep, in this county, which years ago was one
of the most liberal producers of these animals
iu the territory. Tliose who wish the county
well will hope that the coming of the Big Four
Packing Company may cause a change in the
mittee to do something for conser-
vation. "I sent Powell to Senator*
Hale and Allison and tbe aenate
as a result started the legislation
to withdraw all public lands that
could be irrigated as well as all res-
ervoir sites," said Cannon. The house
was in favor of the legislation, but
the senate fought it, but in 1890

tained a provision withdrawing all

"GLORIOUS FOURTEENTH" TO
THE FRENCHMAN AS OUR °
Paris, July 14.- Again the whirligig
of time has brought to Paris that day
of days. the "glorious fourteenth."
when all loyal Frenchmen with repub-
lican blood in their veins and patriot-
ic sentiments in their minds turn
.themselves loose to celebrate the an-
niversary of that other grim and ter-
rible fourteenth of July, when tha
Bastile, a symbol of kingly tyranny,
fell before the onslaught of a mob
shouting "Liberte, Fraternite et Egal-
True, firecrackers arc taboo, and
there is no heavyweight championship
to add eclat to the French national
holiday. eYt today all is merry as
a marriage bell In this city of light
and laughter, and the victory of
black Johnson over a white Jeffries
could, add nothing to the joyousness
of the occasion.
Today's celebration is distinctly
burgeols. of course. *or the nobles
and the clergy, nnd such as dream of
a restoration of royalty, frown upon
the Fourteenth's festivities as an op-
ening of old wounds and festered
sores. The "glorious fourteenth" is
exclusively the holiday of the people,
and fashionable Paris has been away
at the baths and cures and watering
places these many weeks. But the
fun, though generally unconfined, Is,
for rhp most part, wholesome enough.
It is likewise inexpensive, which Is
an item to be considered in the hoi-
I(ky of this thrifty people.
For a week or more the streets
have been undergoing a transforma-
tion. and avenues, boulevards and
equates have suddenly blossomed
with all sorts and conditions of
boths and tents. Vans and wagons
have poured Into the city from all
quarters, oach bringing its special at.
traction for the fete. Once here the
vans are quickly unloaded, the horses
driven to shelter, and the work of
seting up the booths begun and flu
lulled. No-quarter of the city is free
from these newcomers. In the great
open places and in the crooked mean-
er streets, from the Champs Elysees
to Mont mart e and in the Quartier
Latin, the fakirs and showmen are
safe for the time being from any sort
of municipal molestation.
Bourgeois Paris is evidently prou<*.
of its markmanship or else welcomes
the opportunity to improve it, for the
rifle galleries outnumber every other
form of amusement six to one. All
over Paris one hears the zip-zip of
the little bullets as men—&nd women,
too,—try to pile up the score on the
little bullseyes. Everywhere, too, one
finds the carousels.
It is. relative speaking, a noiseless
fourteenth. To be •''ire. there *va3
plenty of noise and tumult on the or-
iginal fourteenth, the one in 1789.
There was no end of sound and fury
then; the echoes of that terrific oc-
currence are still heard in Hstory.
But France, in her annual celeL>ra
tions of the fall of the Bastile and
the rise*- of liberte, fratemite et egn.l-
ite, has never had recourse to the
Chinese firecracker and all the 31a-
bolical and dangerous explosives that
follow iu its train. Rather France,
eats, drinks and makes merry; she
?oes in for romping aud dancing; she
erects greased poles and turns loose
greaseih pigs. There is an atmos-
phere of rollicking good humor, of
jokes and joshes and jollity.
Khedive of Egypt.
Cairo. Egypt, July 14.—Abbas U.
Hilml Pasha. Khedive of Egypt and
weak and decadent descent of tiie
all-powerful Pharaohs, is today cele-
brating his 34th birthday. Although
the khedive has been shorn of nearly
all his power, and is now but a
pawn of Great Britain, to be moved
willy-nilly where John Bull pleases,
the Egyptians generally revere him
as if he were a real ruler, and not
a make believe monarch. His birth-
day Is always celebrated widely and
today was no exception.
Abbas II has recently come into
prominence by taking unto himself a
new wife, the Countess Marianne Toe-
rok de Szendro of Budapest. Until
this matrimonial venture he . had
lived—outwardly at least—as a mono-
gamist. The Moslem law allows
four wives, however, so the khedive
Is afi liberty to add two more wom-
en to his harem, if he desires. Sev-
eral Egyptian dignitaries who have
been content with one wife each have
lately followed their cihef's example,
and added to their households.
The khedive's new wife certainly
has an Oriental type of beauty, but
the surprising fact in connection with
her having won his heart is hor age,
for she completed her 36th year last
•January. According to the customs
of the harem her reign should be at
an end at this time instead of being
about to begin.
But it is explained that Countess
Toeroek made her big conquest seven
yean? ago and has* been living in a
splendid palace in -Cairo since. Her
numerous acquaintances in Budapest,
Vienna, on the Riviera and in Swit-
zerland had heard that she had re-
tired to a convent and meant to de-
vote her future life to prayer md
charity. Great was the surprise felt
when it was learned that under the
name of Sobeide Hanem she had be-
come the khedive's wife. Will she
appear in nbxt year's Almanach de
Gotha side by side with the Khediv-
lah Ikbal Hanem. the khedive's recog-
nized wife? was asked. Will her
children be. considered princes and
princesses of the blood?
She is well born enough. In her
