i Some disparity in public opinion
: exists relative to the manner of elect-
ing' county commissioner- in the Strip
( counties this fall, growing out of the
phraseology of the statute 011 that
subject. Sec. 1769, R. S. of Ok. It re-
quires some thought and investigation

S We have endeavored b the aid of
; good counsel to run the subject down
to its fairest and most wholesome in-
terpretation. The statute. Art. 9. Ch.
22, in relation to the election and du-
ties of county commissioners seems
somewhat ambiguous, if looked at
alone in the light of present con-
j ditions in the Strip counties in Ok!a-
| honia, but viewed in the light of the
word thrown into the statutes for the
purpose euphony, which makes the
statute read, "elected officers," would
be extremely narrow and unreason-
able; it would be subversive to every
legislative intent in our statutes
for relief authorizing and directing
organization 111 our rapidly developing
new countries. The statue provides
the time for general elections and for
the election of county officers at that
time and in case of each officer the
statute defines generally his duty, the
statutes in terms refers solely to
"elected" , officers, the statutes no
where in terms refers to tne duty of
appointed officers. 'Would it not be

Ralph Beaumont was nominated at
El Reno yesterday by the populists
for congress. Beaumont is one of the
"originals," is a pronounced socialist,
and received considerable notoriety
for his inflamatory speeches in Kan-
sas two years ago. It is such men as
Beaumont that keep this country in a
turmoil and conies of a dangerous
element. It will be fun for the repub-
The Tribune would like for each
committeeman to send us a list of the

the names of all the delegates. Please

Ono of the greatest virtues of repub-
lican statesmanship has been that it
has not followed strange gods. It lias
not committed itself to new and un-
tried theories. It has studied the ever-
changing material and indusrial con-
ditions. Understanding the needs of
the times it has favored and devised
legislation looking to the betterment
of the condition of the whole people.

one-half of the tin, two-flfths of the

A large number of Knights of La-

Faithful and capable management atld po-
lite, honest service from employes are impor-
tant items. They are a double duty—to the
company and to travelers—and it is sometimes
a task difficult of accomplishment. Passen-
gers on this line will find little cause for com-
plaint 011 that ground.
The Great Rock Island Route runs all regular
trains to Englewood suburban station, close to
the World's Fair Grounds, and you can save
time and trouble by getting off at that point
and avoid the crowd in the city.
