JOHN GOUdBIE, Editor.:
Rev. McArthur's defense of John D. Rocke-
feller, or rather condemnation of Governor La
Follette's attack upon him is unfortunate from
the standpoint of church philosophy, as all at-
tempts at condoning a life exclusively devoted
to the attainment of money must be.
When a man has attained the wealth of Rocke-
feller,he ceases to be an individual, he is in a sense
a part of the state, so great is his power at the
very basis of government. For a man, after he
has absorbed such a large preportion of the so-
cial and commercial blood of the country, to go
on manipulating natural resources of the country,
public utilities and civil conditions, is a spicie of
treason against the people—treason against the
Viewed from this standpoint, we have as much
right to take cognizance of his method as though
in olden times he .had been a powerful prince
scheming to dethrone his king and capture his
Things by other names are the same, and John
D. Rockefeller under a democracy is just as dang-
erous an oppressor as those princes of old who
used to put their subjects in prison and extract
their teeth one by one until they "willingly", part-
ed with their wealth. Like John U. Rockefeller
these princes also attended church and observed
its state ordinances, but they, as he, only gave
a per cent of their stolen money as alms.
Who knows but Rockefeller and his syndicate
could now sell coal oil five cents a gallon instead
of fifteen and so give thousands physical and
mental light that now live in darkness.
The trouble with Rev. McArthur, as with
many others of his profession, is that tney think
it their Christian duty to eternally waste time
trying to pull that camel thiough the eye
of a needle.

We differ with those who think that John W.
Gates' losing a million and a half gambling on
horse races is a bad example to the young men
of the country. It's a good example. It will
teach them that if a multi-millionaire cannot win
on horses, they cannot.

They say, after all, champagne was used in
christening the battleship Kansas. That means
that there was double deception used—decept-
ion by Governor Hoch in making believe until
the last moment that champagne would be used
and counter-deception by those who pretended
to fill one of the champagne bottles with water,
while leaving it gaily decorated with all its ex-
hilirating insignia. G. C. Sterl, a citizen of Abi-
lene, who has the courage to confess he knows
champagne when he hears it pop, says it fizzed
when the bottle broke against the side of
the ship. By an unnatural desire to choke off
some of the effervascencies of life Kansas has
acquired the habit of indirection, indiscretion,
and dissimulation that bears a strong semblence
of hypocracy, until the question presents itself,
whether an honest drink of spirits is not prefer-
able to a dishonest drink of water.

Sturm's Statehood Magazine, published at
Tulsea, is the latest venture of the kind in the
two territories. It seems magazines cannot be
published west ot the Atlantic cities of Boston
and New York or cast otSan Francisco, but this
is as good a one as any ever issued out of Chicago,
where so many have died. Good many maga-
zines h ive been started in Oklahoma in the past,
but this is the only one that looks like one, and
typographically, cover and inside, it is satisfac-
tory to the eye. Its matter—that which is origi-
nal—neither the article on Indian Territory entitl-
ed "The Land of Opportunity" nor "The
Oklahoma City Statehood Convention," is
of the quality ot magazine writing; it is not
even good newspaper stuff. Articles of mature,
mo.ithly review should be of more solid value,
should have more discriminating sutnnary of
tacts and deeper insight than newspaper re-
ports. The article on the Oklahoma City state-
hood convention has no value whatever and the
one on tne Indian Territory resourcess could be
written by any Oklahoma newspaper man in his
oitice without ever being on the ground. Con-
sidering the great resources of that great half of
what will be a part of the future state of Okla-
homa, it does not do the subject justice. The
proprietor will find it hard to find magazine
writers to supply him with matter in the two
territories. Still, a full knowledge of the two
territories in the face of the present interest in
statehood should' supply him with interesteng
matter and interested readers.
That was an act of genuine Christian and mari-
tal love of Byron Ellison, of Kansas City, in go-
ing to the rescue of his unfaithful but repentant
wife in the ho.irof her retribution and taking her
back to his heart and home afterhelping to clear
her of everything but her fault against him.
She was visiting a daughter in Detroit, Michi-
gan, when the husband read in the papers of her
capture along with Tim Sherman and Frank
Weakly, charged with the robbery and murder of
Pawnbroker Moyer. He would not believe his
wife was guilty and hastened to her. When he
reached her side he found she had been deeply
involved for two years with Sherman, l?ut did
not know he was a robber and knew nothing of
the murder though, she had some of the jewelry,
until she read of it in the papers. He advised
her to confess all on the witness stand against
the men and he would stand by her.
No novelist has dared to atone for so serious
a fault in his heroine and make love clasp its
arms around the form of the sinner again, if not
with the ancient at least with a mutually suffer-
ing joy, yet this elevator engineer in a depart-
ment building has transcended all accepted ethi-
cal and esthetical ideas and fulfilled the decla-
ration, "Yea, if thy brother sin against thee seven
hundred and seventy seven times thou shall for-
give him."
The insistatce of husbands that their wives or
daughters be vertuoushas grown beyond a vertue.
It is like riie code duelo in which mere puncti-
liousness makes the sin unforgivable on the
part of the husband or father though he poach
at that very instance on the wives and daughters
of other men. Anyone else—all the world—ca n
forgive the erring and take her to its hearth, but
not the home of all the world that nestled her.
There is no condition under which a repentant
wife or daughter should not be taken back to the
home she left, and especially when all the
world be shut against her, or else there is noth-
ing in our claims of parental and conjugal love
and all the high sentimental eulogiums of family
ties are but sophistry to deceive ourselves with
and our pretentions ef religion and sentiment
are a fraud. Because he has taken a stand that
is noble and honest all Kansas City has reached
out its hand to this humble man who has made
up his mind to not allow a strange world to be a
better friend to his w:fe than he who had spent
over twenty happy years with her and raised
children that are the pride of both. And he
will be happy with her for this act of bravery,
with an extra feeling of tenderness on both sides,
though memory will soon oblitirate the fault. A
man loves a woman for what she is and not for
some one act she does, and many a man has for-
given the woman he loves in his heart, though
pride keeps him away.
But for his high courage in his love, this man's
wife would now be a wanderer upon the face of
the earth, dispised of the dispised, instead shelt-
ered by the lover of her youth from the hurt of
that cruel world bent on distinction from which
she shrinks and cowers in humiliation.

If it should be found out that the money loan-
ers of the world said to Japan: "No more
money for war,'" and to Russia: "No money for
war nor indemnity"—If it should be found out
that dollars not diplomacy brcught about peace
between Russia and Japan, it would take away
much gush about the high-mindedness and noble
desire to stop the butchery ot human beings, and
humanitarianism that the world has seen fit to
Hatter itself with. But if the two nations were
solvent and there were plenty of money to loan?
—we'll Russia and Japan might shoot each
others heads off and be dar—mned.

J. M. Tadlock has sold the El Reno Globe to
Major Simpson who ussd to run the Evening
Supper Bell. The Major sold the Supper Bell
before it quit ringing at meal time, and he may
be able to extract sufficient nutriment out of the
Globe before it goes up in smoke. Tadlock has
also upset the grocer clerk opinion that only
business ability succeeds in newspaper business
not newspaper ability. He takes the position
of professor of mathematics in an Oklahoma
City University, and surely should have been able
to count all the money the newspaper "goods"
would bring in. But the trouble is that news-
paper stock in trade that the patrons demand is
some writin' stuff and if the fellow who runs the
paper has got none on hand to sell or can't hire
a cheap man to write it for him, the patrons have
no reason for taking the paper.
We have heard it dinned in our ear ever since
we have been in Oklahoma that any damn fool
could write, but that what is needed around a
newspaper office is a business man, and we have
seen these concerns get so cheap in the writing
wares the business manager was supposed to sell
as merchandise that the public was disgusted and
wouldn't have the paper thrown in the front
yard for fear it would rot the grass.
The time has come in Oklahoma when writing
ability as well as business ability is needed, and
when any dub who can tell that his neighbor's
cow had a calf won't be called a newspaperman,

The game of ball between the bank-

won by the latter, it is declared, on a
c lance in the last inning. The bankeis
have the most money, but when they
get in trouble have to have the law-

The coming announcement of
the season will be the advent of
Chas. Lamb's Murray Comedy
Co , with Miss Clara Hazel, at
the Brooks, numbering eighteen
of the best people known to rep-
ertoire with a number of first
class specialty artists. They will
appear here four nights commenc-
ing Sunday. Chas. Lamb, well-
known to the theatre-going people
throughout the country, has cer-
tainly placed himself and com-
pany high up in the niche of
tame, and a better popular priced
organization does not travel. The
opening play, "Possum Ridge," is
comedy drama of sterling worth,
full of strong situations and fun-
ny comedy. The specialties alone
are worth more than the price of
admission. The mystery is how
can a company of such merit be
presented at popular prices. Se-
cure your seats now. Upon Mon-
day night one lady will be admit-
ted free with each paid thirty-five
cent ticket. Seats now on sale at
usual place.
