AS TO "SACKKH" OBIJCiATIONS BE-
TWEEN McGUIHE AND FERGI SON.
To make hay out of a worn out stubble field
the "sacred trinity" is vigorously pushing the
story of the "dastardly crime" of McGuire s
■•treachery" to Ferguson.
The story is that McGuire owes his hist nomi-
nation to Ferguson and that Ferguson owes
nothing to McGuire.
The story is abs<#ute fiction.
The reverse is tru?. McGuire owes nothing to
Ferguson and Ferguson owes everything to Mc-
GFeVguson was not for McGuire's nomination at
Enid. He hung fire in the hopes that I-lynn
would back in again. He did not believe that
McGuire could be nominated. When asked by
McGuire to support him he refused, saying that
Woods county was necessary to his Domination,
and he believed Dick Morgan would get Woods
countv He was behind J. C. Roberts with Wil.
liam Grimes, although Grimes was only using
Robberts as a straw man and when the conven-
tion convened attempted to raise a stampede for
Flynn. Symore Foose, Ferguson's right-hand
bower, placed Robberts in nomination.
Not until the convention assembled and it was
shown him that the thirty-six votes of Woods
county were for McGuire was Ferguson for Mc-
Guire. ,, n . , ,
He felt sure then that McGuire could not be
defeated lor nomination
Now then, the other side of the„story. Fergu-
raon does owe his governorship to McGuire.
When the charges were filed against Jenkins
- Washington, McGuire, then assistant United
Sates attorney, went to District Attorney flor-
ae Speed and told him he believed Jenkins
^ ould be dismissed and suggested Ferguson to
TOcceed him. Speed at that time had not lost
his influence with the department of justice and
interior, and acting on the suggestion of Mc-
£. ire ^ent to Washington and laid the availa-
bility ot Ferguson b-fore the president. William
Allen White, having known Ferguson in Kansas,
added his recommendation.
The thing was all done before Ferguson knew
nvthing about it, and when McGuire apprised
h- that he had been selected as governor, Per-
son was so astonished he would not believe it.
^After he became governor, one ot the schemes
t ike him away from McGuire was the retailing
f the story that Dennis Flynn "slipped" to VVash-
inet®n "unbektiowns" to anybody and
hispered Ferguson's name in President Roose-
VCAs to the harmony with which McGuire and
F rauson worked together in appointments—
M Guire never recommended but two men under
Ferguson, Treasurer Rambo and Private Secre-
tary Carr. It was not long after Ferguson was
irovernor before he began a systematic destruc-
tion of McGuire interfering in federal appoint-
ents. While McGuire helped Ferguson's stand-
rhp department of justice Pereusnn
jn ^before the department of justice Ferguson
did nothing to strengthen McGuire before the
department of interior.
When Ferguson joined Flynn and Speed in
recommending D.Ck Morgan for the Woodward
1 nd office, he promised McGuire in his private
a, fhat he would not again interfere ir
prerogative that clearly belonged to acong
' the appointment of federal officers, and
, d McGuire to add his recommendation for
forgan, which he did. Hut he still continued
his recommendations for federal appointments.
a, to Governor Ferguson standing for Mc.
, „re-s second nomination and his subsequent
election,those wno were nearest in the campaign
1 '-nt and the audiences who heard him
speak know best, and they say he did not tear his
• , rork his voice working for him.
unce themse'ves ^or' thinking that Fergu son
was impregnable in Washington they feared to
reveal Governor Ferguson's actual attitude to-
wards McGuire, and acjuiesced in the fiction that
Ferguson and McGuire were together head and
t c nail no matter how bad things looked, an d so
helped to deceit'/: the peopll. . o
So McGuire ;s not indebted to Ferguson for
l> ing congressman, but Ferguson is indebted to
McGuire for being governor.
And the beautiful fiction of school boy friend-
ship is another "iridescent" dream.
I t I
The "sliver" crowd that at first claimed the
appointment of Frantz was a personal one with
the president, now abuses the McGuire organiza-
tion for the "crime" of turning Ferguson out.
Why don't they jump onto Roosevelt?
NATUKE AND HISTORY AS MAN'S
SOURCES OE PLEASURE.
We are in receipt of a circular from the com-
mercial club of Salt Lake Cuy asking us to assist
in diverting the annual migrations of tourists to
Furope in search of pleasure to our own Rocky
Mountains and the great Northwest country.
We gladly do so.
The intention of the board seems to be to save
the si 50,ooo,coo supposed to be ar.nually spent
by the'Americans abroad, and a ri flection is cast
upon their good sense in seeking pleature and
spending money in foreign lands when they are
ignorant of their own and the idea is hinted that
thev would get more for their money in the scen-
ic granduers of the Rockies and the Columbia
river than the Alps or the Rhine. We have
heard such ideas expressed before, and their
patriotism is to be commended; but the fact still
remains that nature with the greatest association
of human life is the most enjoyable. It is ihe
fundamental trait of our lives that our hopes
reach out in the future but . ur affectum lirger
in the past. It is so historically; it is so person-
ally. So long as we are heirs of the past for all
the romance of the heart and soul—the temples,
palaces,'pyramids, epics, songs, symphonies in
sounds and colors-so long will the mountains,
valley,fplains, streams on which they were enact-
ed be more interesting than scenes of equal
granduer of whose past the affections know not
Solitary scenes are good places for a fellow
to whom "a daisy by the river's brim only a daisy
is to him and it is nothing more;" it is a place
for a great poet-scholar to retire to dream in; but
for the average person that has read a little and
felt a little, but seen none of the things of his
knowledge and affections, the countries of the old
worlds, are of greater pleasure than unknown,

i President Roosevelt being the chief of the Mc- I
Guire machine, it suggests itself that some of tne
"sliver" crowd should not let him go unvilified.

Governor Ferguson, in his Watonga Republi-
can, says he did not play politics. He did, but
played the game badly.
t X I
"The people are against machine politics for
selfish purposes," says Governor Ferguson in his
"defi" to open ball-rolling as soon as he returns
to Watonga. "This fight has just commenced
and will continue until the republican party of
Oklahoma passes into the control of those wHo
will serve it for the good of the j^arty, and not
merely manipulate it to promote selfish interests
and personal ambitions." What "disinterested"
hands are you going to place it in, governor; into
those of Dennis Flynn, William Grimes and their
confederates, who still hold the Norman asylum,
territorial funds in the Capital National and Enid
banks, and who have been sucking the territory
dry for fifteen years until they are rich enough
to have defied the courts and captured as honest
a man as yourself? Do you desire to perpetuate
this Flynn-Grimes machine, that in many re-
spects has been like the Quay machine that
"shook" the "plumb tree ' of the state of Penn-
sylvania, and of which you have been a mistak-

Wlen two young and fair'adies appeared at
the opera the other n ght in London in Greek
dress the audience gasped, but admired, and it is
even suggested now that the costume may come
into general favor. It is to be hoped that this
new crusade against the conventionality of mod-
ern attire will meet with greater success than that
which had for its object the revival of knee
breeches and buckled shoes for men. Those
Sapho garments would adorn with exquisite
grace some of the statuesque beauties of Guthrie

DOMESTICATION SALVATION OF
Mail's love or hate is the thing that will de-
stroy or exterminate the few wild animals still
remaining. _ *
President Roosevelt's desire in spite of the fact
that he is a great hunter, to preserve certain ani-
mals in the National Park, is an unconscious ex-
pression of the fact that transfering wild ani mals
from their use as game to their use as domestic
servants is all that will save them froni final ex
tinction under the continually increased domi-
aticy 4 man of the remotest portions of the
Mr. Roosevelt himself exhibited the psycho-
logical fact that man's affection saves or destroys.
I-n his recent hunt in Colorado, a bcarkilled a big
hound that was especially dear to the hunter's
heart by his intelligence, courage and faithfulness
in the chase. Mr. Roosevelt tells in his boo k
how he avenged the dog s life by killing the bear J
Hut why kill the bear for sport any more tha n
the dog. Loving the dog made it right to kill
the bear. The dog is a part of the Christian so-
ciety, the.bear is an unethical savage.

''Death was fast appr aching."
writes Ralph F. Fernandez, of Tampa,
Fla., describing his fearful race with
death, ' as a result of liver trouble and
heart disease, which had robbbed me of
sleep and all interest in life. I had
tried many different doctors and several
medicines, but got no benefit, until I
began to use Electric Bitters. So won-
derful was their effect, that in thn e
days I felt like a new man; today I am
cured of all my troubles." All drug-

Herb W. Edwards Injured.
Herb VV. Edwards of Des Moines,
Iowa, got a fall on an icy walk last
winter, spraining his wrist and bruis-
ing his knees. "The next day," he
says, "they were so sore and stiff I
was afraid I would have to stay in bed
but I rubbed them well with Chamber-
lain's Pain Balm and after a few ap-
plications all soreness had disappeared.
