KUROPATKIN IN DISGRACE.
Defeat at the bands of tjie Japanese at
Liao Yang and Mukden has shelved Kuro-
patkin and branded him with the badge of
disgrace by the Russian government. Rivals
in the army and defeat in the field have
brought dishonor to his whole life if you
view it thiotgh the eyes of the Russian des-
potism. He has been made the scapegoat
for the whole anny. The world at large
will be slow in taking this view of the mat-
ter. The task given to bim, shows in the
light of recent events, to have been one that
might well be termed superhuman. No
army, at any age in the world's history, has
ever had a toe that fought with such reck-
less daring and disregard for lite as the
Japanese have shown since the very be-
ginning of the war. Armed with a righ-
teous cause and goaded by a touch of
tyranny they have rushed into the fight
with a heroism and valor that has seldom
been equalled in warfare. Then too, there
is an old adage which says that "any cock
will fight better on his own dung-hill,, and
if the Japs were not on their own "dung-
hill" they were closer to it than the Rus-
sians were to theirs, and this was another
powerful incentive to heroic cCtion. It is
very doubtful if any general in the world,
with the same army at his command, could
have withstood the Japanese more success-
fully than Kuropatkin did. The wonder is
that he ever escaped from Liao Yang. No
word of praise is given the old veteran for
that marvelous retreat, but branded with
the word disgrace, he is a subject for oblo
quy by his military rivals and an object of
ignominy to the government he has served
No one is surprised at any act of per-
fidy being committed by the Russian govern-
mena these days but in its brutal ingrati-
tude to Kuropatkin it has surpassed itself.
Linevitch is the hero now, but if he retains
the title he will have before him the hard-
est task to perform that mortal man has yet
assumed. To save the "grand army" from
the vengeance of its pursurers will require
a sagacity hitherto uadispiayed by any
Russian leader during her history as a peo-
ple. He may succeed in the effort, and
reach Harbin or some other fortified town
with a fighting remnant, but if he doos he
will have performed a feat that will make
him as great in retreat as Oyama is in the
appears in full? Is there «ny ambigity
about it, tny f.int s at *r.y individual who
is a candidate or a prospective one? Is
there any hidden subtile something therein,
capable of meaning this or that, just depend-
ing on the process of reasoning applied?
It so, we fail to discern it. Had our friend
wanted to be fair he would have given the
article in full, and not selected a sentence
which standing alone, might be construed
as a base slander against some one. By
such a system a man- can prove most any
kind of doctrine by the word of God. A
letter of commendation might be turned in-
to one of abuse, shold certain clauses here
and there be picked out, and the connection |
thereby lost. We alwayi aim tobeoutspok-1
en; language is by some used to cover their
thoughts and true meaning, but we are sure
the Enterprise will never have any trouble
in understanding us provided it reads the
article through. The metaphor and hyper-
bole may be a favorite with some, we pre-:
fer, however, plain straightforward English.
At the eleventh hour—and 45 minutes
later—the Missouri legislature elected a suc-
cessor to Francis M. Cockrell. The man
chosen for this distinguished honor is
Major William Warner, of Kansas City.
He will be the first republican U. S.
Senator elected to represent that state. He
is a man of great capacity and his record
in public and private life is clean. No
better man could have been united on—or
chosen from the beginning—to fiill the high
position. His state has honored him great-
ly, and that honor will be reciprocated if
the future can be judged by the past.
Emigration Westward still continues.
Men, women and children go continually
and when Indian Territory opens up to actu-
j al settlers, the throng will be immenser to
| go to a land that is "fairer than day." It
is better than Oklahoma on account of their
being more rain and more fertile soil.
Horse Cave correspondent to the Glasgow,
Right you are brother. No country can
surpass ours when it comes to good sea ons
and a prolific yield. Also, the tide of emi-
gration is contnually swelling in numbers.
With statehood no doubt this would be in- ,
creased an hundred per cent. Another
noticeable feature is in the class of emi- j
grants coming west nowadays. Twenty-five
and thirty years ago a majority of those
who came west were either fugitives from j
justice or men who thirsted for an exciting
life on the frontier. But now this is chang-
ed. The supremacy of the law is asserted
here the same as it is elsewhere.- Our
people are|prosperous and law-abiding and
they encourage churches and schools as
well as enterprises of every kind. With
these inducements the exodus from Eastern
states is easily understood.
The farmers have succeeded in stopping
the decline in cotton and caused an advance
of orte cent a pound from the lowest price
reached, by carrying out the plan of not
rushing their cotton to market. This is a
victory gained and serves to show that the
farmers are in control yet and if they will
follow up their advantage now, by planting
a less amount this year, they will control
the situation when the next crop is gather-
ed. There is no reason why they should
The list of candidates on the municipal
ticket at Wynnewood is so long it reminds
one of a delinquent tax list. Renumeration

I hereby announce myself as applicant
for superintendent ot water works for the
ensuing year at $40 per month payable in
cash at the end of each month, with pe -

It material comes down so will I, if it
goes up I will have to do the same but only
the exact amount of rise or fall, a reduct-
tion of 3cts per foot on above prices if you
dig and fiil up your own ditch, Some may
ask how it is that I can lay pipe so much
cheaper than it has been for the last two
years, I will tell you: first I will not have
$20 to $30 per month house rent and $30
to $50 clerk hire.
Now what the city wants is a greater
revenue from its Water Works System and
the only way to get it is to get more
consumers. The ice plant wants water and
and that at once, the compress, oil mill,
cotton gin on east side of railroad track and
light plant will all want water, so let us get a
move on and get it there. The water works
if properly managed will make enough to
pay the running expenses of both fire de-
partment and water works and leave a
handsome surplus each moi>th to go into
the city treasury.
Dont -run down your Water works and
say they are a failure, for they are not.
And just as soon as the pipes are laidto the
river, see what a reduction there will be on
your insurance. The pipe is on the ground
and connection will be made to the river
just as soon as a *ee that is ordered comes
from Kansas City. Yours Respectfully
P. W. BURK.
I would announce myself as a can-
didate for Town Marshal at the elec-
tion to be holden on April 4th 1905.
I am the candidate of no party or fac-
tion but am standing on a platform of
enforcement of the law and treating
all, rich or poor, alike.

Our esteened contemporary in an editorial
last week makes use of the following "We
do not want a hair brained spendthrift in
office one who would sow the city's money
as though it were leaves and he owned the
forest of the earth." Now we do not know
whether this has reference to some official
now in offce or whether the good brother is
takihg a whack at one of the candidates on
the only ticket now before the people. In
either case such a scalawag should have his
name called out in the meetin'. Who is he?
Here is what we said: "We do not want
a hair-brained spend thrift in offce, one
who would sow tne city's money as though
it were leaves and he owned the forests of
the earth, a man who would buy everything
and anything so long a« the city had a dol-
lar's credit, but at the same time if we
w.iuld be successful we must equally steer
clear of the norrow minded case hardened
skin-flint who conceives it to be the first
duty of a mayor or alderman to keep from
spending any money at all save to pay his
• own salary (if there happened to be one

The victory of Gov. Peabody in Colorado
is of striking importance. By a vote of 55
to 41 the legislature ousted "Gov." Alva
Adams; and of this number, ten members,
who voted for Adams, were independent
.republicans. Immediately after being sworn ;
in Gov. Peabody resigned the office and was
succeeded by Jessie F. McDonald, Lieut.
Gov. elect. It was thought by some that j
Adams would endeavor to hold the office by
force and he was asked by several rash
persons to do so but he wisely ignored such
advice. The struggle over this guberna-
torial chair recalls a similar struggle in
Kentucky four years agoj With assassina-
tion eliminated they are very much alike.
Peabody lives and by his voluntary surren-
der of the office which he won by a will of
the majority he has restored harmony in
the Republican ranks in Colorado. To
Goebel victory and death came band in
hand and the bitter hatred and strife en-
gendered by the triumph of his policies in
the state of Kentucky will remain for gen-
erations to come.
The Chickasaw Furniture Co., will
give away to the person who holds the
winning tickets a China closet worth
$28.75, and Columbia zither worth
$10 and Axminster rug worth $6.
Every $1 purchase entitles you to
a ticket and three chances.
The Confederate Veterans will make
another raid in Kentucky in June of this
year. The raid this time will differ materi-
ally from Bragg's raid forty odd years ago.
The object of their conquest this time is
Kentucky hospitality and, to this, no resis-
tance will be made. Louisville will be
their objective point and they will pitch
their camp there June 14th and remain for
three days. The Bluegrass section of
Kentucky in June is the next thing to •
vision of Paradise, and the hospitality of
her people is commensurate with the beauty
of her landscape. So to these veterans in
gray, a great welcome is in store and al-
ready the heart of Louisville is throbbing
with anticipation of the happy event.

prescription drugs as there is in groceries? Ii your

tions v/ith an inferior grade of drugs You Don't Know

them. We have in charge of our prescription depart-
ment U. S. Allender who has had twenty years ex-
perience in the business besides the time spent in
schools. About the prices: You would expect to pay
more for a first class high patent flour than you would
for an inferior kind, wouldn't you? We guarantee to
charge for our prescriptions just the same as you
would be charged by any Reputable druggist, but if
you are hunting the Cheapest place don't come to us.
We are going to give you good drugs and the very
