Thk calamity howlers are still
CiiaWges are expected to bo made
in the land offices at an early date.
As the wheel rolls round new
men step in. There has been a
number of postmasters appointed
over the territory.
Lizzie Bobdon, who was im-
prisoned for ten months, on suspicion
of being connected with the famous
murder case was acquitted.

Hasn't McKinley had enough bad

booming him for the presidential
nomination ia '90 must have more
than an ordinary grudge against
Resigning an office in favor of a
certain party don't stand for any-
thing. If it did it would cost a man
something for the favor, and there
■would be plenty of favorites in
every town and community.
The north bound passenger on
the Rock Island, due at Hennessey,
5:45 was late Wednesday evening
and did not arrive until 1 o'clocK
Thursday morning. A land slide
blocnading tlio track was the cause
of the delay.
A train on the Long Island rail-
road, upon which were about 1,000
persons returning from Shcepshcad
Bay races, in Now York, Tuesday,
was derailed in a tunnel. Two
persons were killed and about one-
would be unable to find a purchaser
for the securities, owing to the dis-
turbed condition of the money
market. New York has been refus-
ing country securities for some time,
and it seemed doubtful whether any
acceptable offer would be found
when the bids were opened. The
result is highly satisfactory ami too
much credit cannot be given Gov-
ernor Renfrow and Treasurer
Murphy in making so good a sale in
a time of extreme financial de-
pression. It also speaks well for
Guthrie that one of our local financial
institutions was able to purchase
the bonds of the territory at a price
above par, thus showing to the
country that we are independent of
outside help m a financial matter.

Guy R. Gii.lktt, Esij.,
Drab Gut.—Col. Cone starts for
the territory in a few days for the
purpose of collecting samples of this
year's crop for exhibition here.
The citizens in different partsof the
territory are making diligent efforts
to secure fine samples for the Col.,
and 1 trust that your people are alive
to the urgency of the subject. I !
am not posted as to what my
predecessor (Mr. Scott) has done in
the way of advising you of Col.
Cone's visit for samples, but presume
your people are fully advised. Col.
Cone will be on the west side the
latter part of the week. Perhaps
you had better write him in care of
Judge Scay, when you have made
collections. Oklahoma has the
tallest corn, sorghum and grasses at
the exposition, and we must main-
tain our record.
If this matter is not under con-
sideration by your people, please at-
tend to it at once.
C. II. corswei.i.,
who stood by and encouraged the
riot. Mr. Gilbert is an old man of
05 summers. But the strangest
thing of all is they refuse to tell him
what wrong he has committed against
them to justify such outrages. We
are told though that the alleged
offence committed against them is
the fact of him reprimanding one of
them for illegally voting at the
school election a short time ago.
It is rumored on the streets that the
matter was brought before the
Grand Jury on Monday and. an
indictment found against Geo.
Rainey, Mrs. Rainey and Nora
Gilbert on Tuesday. Rumor has it
that on Tuesday night just before
the Grand Jury adjourned one of
the Grand Jurymen insisted on
changing his vote against the in-
dictment after an interval of two
days and that as there were only 12
men on the Jury and taking 12 men
to find a bill, and that his vote
killed the indictment. On this
rumor there is a great deal of
speculation on the streets and
among the people of the county as
to the kind of arguments used to
have him change his vote—At least
it strikes us as a most extraordinary
occurance if there is any truth in
tlio matter.—Watonga Rustler.

A good joKe is told on a prominent
citizen, and by the way a republican
office holder of this city, who was
anxious to secure a pass over the
Santa Fe and be wrote to the
company about it and in due course
of time he received a reply enclosing
a trip pass. This did not satisfy
the gentleman so he returned the
pass with a long letter in which he
expiated on his importance and in
answer to this he received an animal
pass but across the face was written
in red ink "good only on through
freight trains." The irate official
immediately wrote the company
what they meant by sending him
transportation good only on through
freight trains. To this the compa-
ny replied that they were of the
opinion that it would take a freight
train to transport his immense check
and superabundance of gall and as
they wanted to cause him no trouble
this pass was sent. — Press-Gazette.
