Charges and counter charges
are being made and the belief is
that there is not a federal office-
holder who will not be under fire
before or at the time of the ex-
piration of his term of office.
Political gossip has it that an at-
tempt will first be made to oust
W. D. Fossett from the United
States marshal’s office before his
term of office expires in January.
This is said to have something to
do with Cade’s visit in Indian-
apolis and something to do with
Fossett’s trip to Washington.
Cade has been spoken of as the
logical successor from the oppos-
ing faction to the United States
marshal’s office in case the pres-
ent incumbent stepped out. Fos-
sett’s management of his office
has been faultless so far as the
public has been able to learn, but
his opponents claim he has taken
no part in political organization
and has been of too little service
to his party.
If the official acts of Governor
Ferguson are to be attacked such
a method of procedure has been
kept in the dark. The refusal
to enter into certain agreements
through which the party could
be benefited has caused luke-
warm republicans to loose inter-
est. While he has made many
personal friend during his tenure
he is charged with being a poor
politician. The most important
territorial positions are filled by
the governor and even those who
helped to make him governor say
he has been unwise in several
appointments. When Ferguson
asks reappointment from Presi-
dent Roosevelt his failure to get
support from his appointees may
be one of the matters about
which he will be questioned. It
is said of Ferguson that “he has
been the governor and seldom
takes dictation from anyone, no
matter to whom is the benefit.’’
The contention that he will lay
before President Roosevelt will
be that he has tried to conduct
his office without preference to
any political faction and has tried
to do what waa boat for the party
in general That he has tried to

Why Editors Get Rich.
After a good deal of study and
worry we have at last “figured
out” why so many editors get
rich. Here is the secret of suc-
A child is bom in the neighbor-
hood; the attending physician
gets $10; the editor gives the
loud-lunged youngster and thef
“happy parents” a send off and
and gets $00. It grows up and
marries; the editor publishes an-
other long winded, flowery article
and tells a dozen lies about the
beautiful and accomplished”
bride; the minister gets $10 and
a piece of cake and the editor
$00. In course of time one of
them dies; the undertaker gets
from $25 to $100; the editor pub-
lishes a notice of the death, an
obituary two columns long, lodge
and society resolutions, a lot of
poetry and a card of thanks, and
gets $000. No wonder so many
editors get rich.
From the Mirror:
Deputy Sheriff Hoyt was up
from Stillwater Monday on legal
business. Mr. Hoyt says county
business is slow, which is evident
that Payne county is rather
peacable. District court will
convene Monday, September 11.
The Stock Breeders’ associa-
tion of Oklahoma appointed C. C.
Walker to represent them at the
National reciprocity convention,
now in progress at Chicago. Mr.
Walker could not attend the con
vention on account of a meeting
of the association members in Ok-
lahoma City, for the purpose of
devising plans for the regular fall
sale and show.
A young man near Glencoe

when he saw a real stone, he
