WELCOME SHAWNEE'S VISITORS
Shawnee is most fortunate in hav-
ing so many prominent visitors as she
i. now receiving. Hardly have the
M. W. A. left for their homes before
the Knights of Pythias wlH be the
city's guests, several thousands
strong. The K. P. will be here from
Monday until Friday and every citi-
zen is ready with the glad hand of
hospitality to extend a warm wel-
come to the distinguished visitors
from all parts of the new state as
well as from other states. It behooves
every booster to decorate his place of
business and his home in honor of
our guests. Shawnee Is out for tho
capital of the new state and every
visitor to the Forest City Is bound to
go home a missionary to the cause of
Shawnee. The Shawnee News ex-
tends to all visitors a most hearty wel-
come to this city of homes and great
From now on, Shawnee will be the
meeting place of many large state
gatherings and her citizens will lend
themselves heartily to the entertain-
ment of the city's guests. It is the
proud boast of Shawnee that no one
can have our corporation without
first partaking of our hospitality and
chivalry. We are proud to entertain
visitors and glad of the opportunity.
Shawnee in her march to greatness
has the whole state behind her; for
she has ever had a word of welcome
ami good cheer to all.
WOULD THEY DO IT?
A question that any one in Shawnee
can answer is: Would the Big 8 try
to pass an ordinance vesting in thorn-
s' Ives the right to appoint the com
mittees if a democrat were mayor.
Of course they wouldn't, for it Is
without a precedent in the life of tho
city. The only plausible excuse they
can offer Is that they figured they
could bluff Steams and run over him
rough shod. However, an Indignant
citizenship has called their bluff and
lined up with the mayor, Frank
Stearns, in his fight for a square
We wonder how many people know
what the Egyptian priests told Solon
about the Deluge?
We wonder if Roosevelt couldn't
find some member of his own party

\V« wonder why there is only one
profession that is still using the
same old methods and utilities?
W« wonder what has become of
that depot that was to commence
building the 1st of March, 19ft7?
We wonder how so many people

there is only on« way to secure It?
We wonder why W. J. Bryan back-

railroads? Must have had a dream.

The Shawnee News has set the
week from May C to 11 as a time In
which It asks every man, woman and
child In Shawnee to assist it in clean-
ing up the city of all things that are
detrimental to civic beauty. If every
one will do one's share it will be sur-
prising the great amount of work that
can be accomplished along this line.
Fix up your lawns, gardens, walks,
porches, alleys and paint all unsightly
places. It will require practically no
expense on your part and not much
energy. In most cities one big day
is set aside for this purpose, and why
can't Shawnee with a week do a great
cleaning up? The News feels that
every citizen is interested enough In
the beauty and home life of Shawnee
to make a special effort during this

SPLENDID PROGRESS OF SHAW
No city In the new state has a
record for growth and progress that
can equal that of Shawnee. And
with this growth the beauty of home
life has not been neglected, but has
kept apace with the growth in poula-
tion and area of the city. Shawnee
is the fastest growing city in the
new state; it is growing in all direc-
tions and no part of interest Ik being
forgotten in the mad rush for su-
premacy. The present is the fore
