schedule will be heavily cut. Only the
equitable protection will be allowed to re |
main. The most obnoxious features of the j
schedule will be treated with even more se-
verity than the duties applied to woolen goods.
This is important, especially to the poorer
classes. Men and women must be clothed and
the rates on the simplest dress materials have
been so excessive that clothes have become a
luxury. Tnis action of the Democrats will
mean a radical reduction in the cost of living
next winter, and this, above all things, is what
the people are most anxious for.—Commercial
THE MEXICAN CRISIS.
DEMOCRATIC harmony is discouraging
Republican hopes. There lins been a
time-honored belief that just at the mo-
ment of assured success Democrats niak" some
fatal blunder which turns the tide to the Re-
This year it is different. The Democratic
caucus has been lield. It was marked by per-
fect harmony. There was not even difference
of opinion sufficient to provoke a debate.
The Republican leaders, on the eve of the
extra session, are still holding out an alluring
future to the party members. For once, how-
ever, their golden ineptitudes and flatulent
platitudes are being accepted with a grain of
The Republicans have promised much and
have given but little. Besides, the smirch of
scandal is injuring the cause in the senate. The
people are beginning to ask themselves if they
nave not already trusted too long in these Re-
publican promises, which amount to so little.
It was a wise move of the Democratic cau-
cus not to promise reform and retrenchment,
but to actually put into execution the scheme
of reducing the expenses in the house of repre-
sentatives and to curtail the cost of govrrn-
The partisan feeling was not allowed to
show itself. Speaker-elect Clark knew that
there was an oportunity to cut down the cost
of legislation, and cut it. The people were not
told what would be done. The action has been
taken, and when congress convenes the Demo-
cratic majority will carry out the plans of the
caucus. The taxpayers of the country will be
given practical evidence of what the new mar
jority will do during the extra session.
Democrats promise more. All rates of duty
in the woolen schedule will be lowered more
than fifty per cent. No article in that schedule
will be permitted to retain half of the protec-
tion now afforded by the Payne-Aldricn law.
A complete modificatir > and lowering of the
entire list will be made.
All of the oppressive rates in the cotton
ituation. Within the last few days the
Diaz government has appeared to be weaken-
ing in its position at first so strongly uncon-
cifiatory and it is now commonly believed that
direct overtures for peace have been made to
the insurrectoS. in his recent semi-annual mes-
sage President Diaz recommended many re-
forms for which the insurrectionists are con-
tending. Whether these concessions are suf-
ficiently comprehensive and sincere to induce
Madero to lay down his arms remains to be
The most picturesque incident of the pres-
ent Mexican troubles, so far as the outside
world is aware, is the ride of Braulio Hernan-
dez to Madero's camp carrying the message
that may mean peace or American interven-
tion. The insurrecto provisional secretary of
state of Chihuahua is making a daring ride
through the lines and occupied territory of his
enemies, any one of whom would be only too
ready to shoot him down for the price that is on
his head. He is the messenger of peaee, pro-
vided Madero is willing to accept peace upon
the terms offered by Diaz.
There seems to be some authority for the
statement that President Taft has given notice
that unless peace is declared in Mexico by May
1st the American troops now on the border
will be ordered to enter and stop further car-
nage. For practically thirty days, therefore,
negotiations may be carried on between the
federal and the insurrecto authorities. Wheth-
er Madero would secure his ends best by forc-
ing American intervention or whether he will
take his chances under the new arrangement
cannot be known until word comes from

In any event the situation in Mexico is most
interesting from the American standpoint. One
thing is certain and that is that there seems to
be no disposition to relax training at the Amer-
ican mobilization centers. It is rather the
other way. New troops are being sent in an al-
most continuous stream and appearances on
the American side are more warlike than at any
time since the present situation developed. If
American intervention comes it will mean .i
quick restoration of peace and order in a wide
district that is now devastated by war.—K. C.
"Good, bad, indifferent."
Three words often used in refer-
ring to things or conditions. The
street carnival which opened here last
night on/ South Union street and the
streets contiguous thereto can l)e
placed in the good class, without fear
of successful contradiction. It is be-
ing staged here for the benefit of the
Moose lodge of this city. H. R. Moore,
a man of national reputation as a
press agent, is with the carnival com-
pany. He stated some time ago the
company was the best of its kind on
the road. He doesn't need to retract
because a visit to the carnival grounds
is the best evidence this statement is

TOO MANY CARRY GUNS.
Some 400 deputy constables in
Muskogee county have been ordered
to surrender their commissions. The
deputies won't mind about the com-
missions but they will no longer be
privileged to carry guns, a depriva-
tion they will regret. It is stated
that many of them were employed
as collectors au«l that they used the
color of official authority in forcing
collections. The old habit of em
ploying Tom, Pick and Harry as
"possemen" was the source of many
an injustice in the ante« tatehood
days and 6ince statehood the numer
nii rt* n«ty constables have taken
their place as trouble makers. There
are entirely too many men carrying
guns in this state.—McAlester News-
Had Guthrie secured the railroad
out of Sapulpa when Jones built
tho Frisco westward, says the Sa-
pulpa Light, It would have been the
largest and most important city of
the en tier southwest. In lieu of rail-
ways from east to west, the leaders
at Guthrie took exercise knocking
each other and won the world's
championship in killing a city.
A NEWSPAPER TRAGEDY.
Under the above head Tom Lata
of, the Tulsa World, preaches the
funeral of the Guthrie State Capital,
which died Tuesday:
"The passing of the Guthrie State
Capital into the hands of Its "lothed
! contemporary" marks what might be
termed a tragedy in the newspaper
annals of this (tate. The State Cap-
ital was founded on the day Okla-
hoine was. That is to say, it was
issued from a tent on the day of
the Tun which opened to settlement
the lands of Oklahoma. And from
that day until the day of its sale
to the Guthrie Leader, it has been
under the personal direction of
"There was a time when the State j
Capital was a power in the state:
the unchallenged leador of them all.
This was largely so because it was
unchallenged. But other aspirants
for leadership entered the field, and
the old paper was unable to hold |
its own. For yeans its prestige and
influence had been slipping from it.
It was aggressive in its policy, but
its policy ily consorted with the
needs and ideals of the people of
Oklahoma. And its field failed to In.
crease with other fields in the state,
and It was forced to sit supinely
still and watch the procession go by.
"It is a fate that may befall any
publication—any editor. The only
thing that will -prevent it is for the
editor or the paper to interpret pub-
lic sentiment faithfully. 'This mould
ing public sentiment' is all a myth.
There may have been a time when
the American press moulded public
sentiment, but If so it was 'way
back. Now the most successful pa-

public sentiment, and interprets it
before the public has become con-
scious of its own desires and judg-
"A newspaper, like a political
party, or an individual, must keep
moving in this day. If it doesn't It
will find itself left in the ruck."
Every feature of the great carnival
has its spectacular side. Not alone
are the concessions interesting and
instructive, but they have many
laughable features. It is a fun mak-
er, and an educator combined. There
is nothing slushy or immoral about
any part of the carnival, but quite
the opposite, is a strictly high-class
and refined attraction. The company
carries twenty-two carloads of mate-
rial, a great troupe of performers, and
is the largest carnival company in the
country. To miss seeing the carni-
val would be depriving yourself of a
rare treat. And too, you would not
be assisting a worthy cause. Let's

Ison Webb, a smoived republican,
entered a plea of g'.ilty to the charge
of being drunk and disturbing the
peace in the police court this morn-
ing, and drew the usual fine. He was
arrested last night by Assistant Chief
Menokh, an aborigine r.odded an
assent when asked by the court as
to how he would plead to the charge
of being drunk. Not being familiar
with the Anglo-Saxon language, the
Indian made a few gestures with his
hands, which indicated he wanted to
see a friend who would pay his fine,
lie was told that his friend would be
TROUBLE OVER FRUIT TREES
It is not against the peace and dig-
nity of the state to call a man a mon-
umental prevaricator, and according-
ly William Eddington was discharged
in the police court this morning on
the charge of disturbing the peace.
The complaining witness was Joe
The trouble was the culmination
j over the payment of $19, Eddington
alleged Emerley owed nim for trees
he had ordered, the former being a
dispenser of tregs and shrubbery.
They met yesterday on the street and
when Emerley is alleged to have pos-
itively refused to take the trees after
he had ordered them and refused tc
pay for them, Eddington made several
references, according to his own tes-
timony, and his arrest followed. The

RID 5 THE SYSTEM
Read The Herald.
Catarrh usually begins with irritated, inflamed membranes of the head,
nose and throat, from which there is a constant and copious discharge of
watery matter. Nature intends that these membranes shall be nourished by
the Mood, but waste matters and impurities deposited into these delicate
parts, sets up inflammation and the discharge is a natural result. There is
only one way to cure Catarrh, and that is to remove the cause by purifying
t'.ie blood. Washes, sprays, inhalations, etc., do not reach the circulation,
and therefore can only afford temporary relief. S. S.S. cures Catarrh by
cleansing the blood of all impure catarrhal matter, and at the same time
building up the system by its unequalled tonic effects. In other words
S.S. S. cures Catarrh by purifying the blood so that the mucous surfaces
and liiiin:j;s of the body are supplied with healthy nourishment instead of
],eir.; continually irritated from the. : rrhal impurities. Then the inflamed
membranes heal, the discharge is ( heeked, h..11 jtoises cease, the stomach is
I toned up, and the throat is no Ion rclo 1 with mucus. Boole on Catarrh
