The Wide Awake Hustler i as Fastid-
ious About Good Printing As He Is
About His Shirt Collar. We Want to
Convince You of What Constitutes Good
ROOSEVELT THE MAN.
Andrew Jackson excepted, and no presi-
dent of the United States has so impressed
his personality upon his administration as
has Theodore Roosevelt. But it will be re-
callen, Old Hickory was not entirely super-
ior to the influences and decrees of his
"kitchen cabinet," first organized by him.
Lincoln, though masterly impressive, hold-
ing steadily and ever to the one great aim,
the preservation of the Union, was, never-
theless, quickly responsive to public senti-
ment. The indomitable and self-contained
Grant was swayed by trusted friends, even
to the verge of a public scandal. Roose-
velt, younger in years, has so steadfastly
stood for his personal convictions of what
was right as not only to have become the
leader of his party, but the individual issue
of the national campaign, the first pertur-
bations of which are now in evidence. The
Democratic party platform agrees to a Re-
publican protective tariff, in a modified way,
and concedes that the gold standard of the
Republican party is the only possible mone-
tary measure, which agreement and conces-
sion leaves that party but the sole issue, but
the single contention, Roosevelt the man.
The platform does not propose to overturn
Cuban reciprocity, or to abandon the Isth-
mian canal, or to forsake the Philippine pos-
sessions, or to repudiate a single treaty or
other obligation entered into by this country
under the Republican administration. This
being true, there is left for that party to
oppose only the individual, Roosevelt the
man, and upon the one issue, his person-
ality. There is no other issue possible for
the Democratic party. As for the Repub-
lican platform, there is little to it, Roose-
velt, his acts and policies left out. The
Republican platform makes no demand for
"turning the rascals out,'' because that is
just what Roosevelt has been doing. It
does not call for a maintenance of McKin-
ley's Cuban reciprocity, because Roosevelt
forced that very measure upon congress
It does not condemn Roosevelt's prompt
recognition of the independence of Panama,
nor his purchase of the canal right-of-way,
for the simple reason that the one was uni-
versally endorsed and the other unanimous-
ly demanded. Wall street entertains little
or no objection to the Republican platform,
but is against he who stands for it, Roose-
velt the man. Tammany has no use for
Parker, caring little for what his platform^
promises or demands, but it has had to do
with, and fears, Roosevelt the man. The
combines in restraint of trade, the trusts
that swindle and monopolies that rob, will
not be found contributing their millions for
any love they have for Parker, or because
of a preference for the Democratic party or
its platform, but to defeat Roosevelt the
man. And so as to both the Democratic
party as with the Republican party, the sole
single issue for the presidential campaign of
1904 is, and will be, Roosevelt the man.—

WILL WE RAISE IT?
The people of Pauls Valley know that
railroads make a city prosperous, and that
money spent in bonuses will return three
and four fold. Property will increase in
value and the property owner will be
More railroads, reaching out in every di-
rection and bringing in products and trade
to Pauls Valley, and carrying out the wares,
will make the city metropolitan with a cer-
tain and fixed supremacy.
The proposed electric line from Oklaho-
ma City to Sulphur will place this town in
hourly communication with a country that,
you might say, is now cut off, and the man
who refuses to do his part towards securiug
it is, if he be a property owner, injuring
This road can be secured for the town by
a contribution of $5,000, and property own-
ers should fall over themselves in the eager-
ness to contribute and thus speedily close
This road is not being built for passenger
traffic alone, but also for general freight
traffic, and Pa«ls Valley must wake up on
the proposition and stay waked up or the
road may be lost.
Another survey is even now being talked
of and prompt action may be all that will
save the day.
Pauls Valley either does or does not want
this line. She either wants to be a metro-
politan town or a village. What will we do
The action of the people during the next
few weeks will show.
Clarence Douglass of the Muskogee PLoe-
nix has been accused of overdrawing the
picture of greatness of this country in a re-
cent editorial. He' promptly answers the
accusations and successfully proves the as-
sertions made by taking towns and districts
and noting their individual productiveness.
Yet in all of his expressions, which are
known to be the essence of truth, he tumb-
les from his high pedestal by not making
mention of Pauls Valley, the Queen of the
Washita, a town surrounded by the richest,
most fertile and productive region in the en-
tire Territory. Right yourself Dug, and
do it at once.

IMMIGRATION TO TERRITORY.
INDIAN AGENT WRIGHT SAYS IT
WILL BE HEAVY.
South McAlester, I. T., Aug. 7.—
J. George Wright, Indian inspector,
says this fall will witness the greatest
immigration to Indian Territory of any
year in the history of the Territory.
He says that conditions making for a
permanent and populous settlement of
white farmers are better than they have
ever been before. The conditions
surrouding the transfer of the title of
lands been greatly simplified and
now the white man can obtain title to
good farms in Indian Territory as
readily as he can in Missouri, and get
better land at a low figure. The
question of title has been the bugaboo
that has kept bona fide farmers from
coming to Indian Territory for years.
This is now removed.
