N rw houses are going up all over
the country and a thrifty and law-
abiding class of people are con-
stantly coming iu to e-tublisli their
homes and enjoy with us the bless-
ings and prosperity of ti splendid
country mhI line climate.
statf.'.iood for Oklahoma is of
the greatest necessity for the rapid
improvement and certain niaiii-
tunencc of values The incoming
legislature can do much to assist
it, ami their action should betaken
early iu the session.—Oklahoma
Tut: grip is said to have made its
appearance in New York already.
It is a little ahead of time tills year,
but it appears to be iu good work-
in-order. It will probably claim
many a victim during the coming
winter and spring. Unfortunately
it is not possible to declare any
quarantine a^nlnst llie disease
TltK Glooo I'eiooerni says* The
next congress is likely to admit
Arizona and New Mexico to state-
hood. Oklahoma deserves I hi?
promotion better than either. She
litis more inhabitants than Arizona,
and better inhabitants than New
Mexico. Her resources aru great-
er than those of the other two
ami her future is greater.

is an applicant for the ottii" of
United States Marshal, Nowliev
in Oklahoma Territory could there
be found a better man for this
efilce. Capt. Leivy Is a "true bUie

SUfAYoM FKTHOKBW of South
Dakota, is one of the republican
senators who are not shedding
terrs over the defeat of llnrrisou,
for he is one of those who warned
the party that too much Mclvinley-
jsm would I10 its death. He says:
"The most comforting th'ng re-
sulting from this overthrow of the
party ii that it puts an end to Mr
William McKinlcy Jr'."
Tin: Kansas City limes says:
Among the propositions which the
senate committee on immigration
will submit to congress is one
which requires all alien immi-
grants lo renounce llieir allegiance
to every foreign power as soon ns
they land, Iftliey inteud to remain
here. While it is not altogather
clear how sveh a law could be sat-
isfactorily carried out, there is
enough that is sound in t lie propo-
sition to justify the most careful
consideration. The Immigration
law s must bp amended.
Dkmockats who advocate the
appointment of a non-resident
of the territory as fhe next gover-
nor thereof, cannot be considered
true adherent.i to principles adopt-
ed by the democratic convention
June22.18112. Look tip the plat-
form and rea I the 1-stli section and
you will find that the latter portion
of it reads thus; "and while
they remain territories wo hold
that the officers appointed to ad-
minister the government of any
territory, togather with the District
of Columbia and Alaska, shall he
bona fide residents of the territory
or districts in which tbeir duties
are to bo performed. The demo-
cratic party believes in home rule
anil the control of their own affair*
by the people of the vicinage —
the Congressional Campaign Com-
mittee' there were elected 218 dem-
ocrats, 12# republicans, and 8 pop-
ulists, with ltliode Island still to
elect. This would give the dem-
ocrats a majority over all of 82,
which will be slightly decreased by
Rhode Island's election.
j Senators and Representatives
nre begining to gather at tho eapi-
Very different Is the Mrs. Cleve-
land of to day. Measured by the
canons ot beauty, she is not a truly
beautiful woman, nor do her best
admirers insist that she is; hut she
is undoubtedly a strikingly hand-
some woman, with a radiant iniile
mid rare sweetness and charm of
expression. Of commanding
heigtli, tin- figure that four years
ago was Hat and angular has as-
sumed the full nail rounding out-
lines it needed to make it really
line, and her carriage which was
constrained, is now erect, graceful,
and easy. Iter face Is considerably
[tiller, and there is a serenity blen-
ded with the sweetness that gives
it a more perfect charm. Hut the
groate. t change, perhaps, Is in
the spirit. When she was in the
White House her steps were taken
with tho uncertainty of inexper-
ience, Slio has reached a fuller
womanhood now, and her exper-
ience in New York soile'y has
given her admirable equipoise.
She continues to bo, naturally, the
center of attraction wherever she
appears in public, and the people
crowd around her and stare al her.
She is to sensible a woman not to
know that tho attention she at-
tracts is respectful, and not to
know also that it is not all en qual-
ified admiration j not to know that
tome iu the crowds are criticising
her every feature, ns well as com-
mitting her face to memory. She
hears herself through it all, it is
said, with a modest dignity, neith-
er shrinking into tlio background
nor thrusting herself forward: and
there is where her equipoise helps
Iter and that is what she could not
do four years ago.
As to Mr. Cleveland, he is chang-
d also, but in a different way
and to a less degree. He has
till in anticipation of the closing
session of the flftv-second congress
now about te convene. Hut little
legislation aside from the passage
if appropriation hills, is elpected
this winter, and the question of an
extra session of the new congress
during tho coming spring or sum-
mer will probably remain undeci-
ded until after Mr. Cleveland's In-
O. Ukicnon, W. II. Llewellyn and
Price Beaton, executive commiss-
ioners respectively for Oklahoma,
New Mexico mid Arizona have let
the contract for the erection of the
territorial building which is to con-
tain the joint exhibits of thisc
three territories. Henry Bennett
of 1(17 Dearborn street was award-
ed the eoiit.act at $7,50U. Wtrk is
to lie commenced at once and the
building is to be completed l>v
April 20,18113. The build lug will
ho of staff finish, occupying a space
182x180 feet. This silo was for-
merly awarded to Virginia and it
lies just behind the Pennsylvania
building. Seymour Diivis"ofTope-
ka was tho architect, anil t hree bids
were received for its construction.
One of these was from Topeka and
the o'her two Were from Chlcago-

Jim l>>or write* m Letter.
The latest exhibition of gal(| we
have heard of was presented in a
letter to jailer Burns by Jim Dyer,
who broke jail a short time ago.
The letter was written at Musko-
gee and ttie writer thanks Mr.
Burns for Ids kind treatment of
himself and wife and says he bus
been to Paris, Tex. and fixed up his i
cases in good shape Dyer goes on :
to say that lie has been in Musko-
