Cimarron Water Natatoriuui Guthrie s
Opportunity As a Health Resort-
Guthrie has an opportunity of being a great
summer health resort. It has let the chance pass
by too long. The Cimarron river fllows through
the great salt plains of tne West and its waters
are as salty as the Atlantic. If a great natato-
rium were built in this city, it would draw the
whole of Oklahoma, and especially the people of
the western half, as a pleasure resort as would
no other amusement feature.
It has long been known that the Cimarron
river water, besides being as salty as the sea, has
medicinal properties that cures all kinds of skin
diseases. In the early days, men afflicted with
serious blood diseases, who could not afford to
go to Hot Springs, have been known to take pre-
scriptions from the doctors for internal treat-
ment and taken daily baths in the Cimmrron for
external treatment, and been cured. If properly
advertised, this tact would bring people from
all the surrounding country for pleasure and for
It would be an easy and not a costly mat-
ter to build sueh a natatorium. The basin should
be large and the pavillion handsome. It should
be built so that fresh water could be pumped in-
to it every night and the old discharged throug-h
a flume into the Cottonwood. It should be
placed in charge of a man that would keep it so-
cially above repute, so that even the mothers
could take their babes there to bathe, while so-
cial parties and the public could use it as a holi-
Guthrie will make a mistake if before anoth-
er summer it does not build such a pleasure and
health resort and reap the benefit of a crying
need for amusement of the great, inland South-
west, Excursions would be run here from all
over Olkahoma if such were established, and an
entirely new pleasure given the people who can-
not go to the summer seashore resorts. It would
prove a Coney Island to the West.i
Party Harmony anil Party Honesty.
There is much talk about Republican party
harmony after the nominations for congress have
been made in the First and Second districts, and
the closing up of the ranks for common partv
success. But can the party affori to compro-
mise with its objectionable elements? If it con-
dones corruption can it succeed? Will it not
have better chance of success by condmening
graft and public conversion in its own partv as
well as others? This was the method President
Roosevelt pursued and pursues in his campaigns
and afterward in the presidential chair, and this
is the way he is demanding the present national
congressional committee carry on its campaign
— a refusal of all trust or tainted mon^v.
If the Republican organization of the new
state is wise it will absolutely eliminate the rich-
grown crowd now fighting to regain supremacy
or ru;n the party. It can easier do that than
stand (or their past record and vouch for their
future acts. There are not many of them and
the people have them labeled. Th^y are not
great men, and can be easily dispensed with.
They are the left-overs who have been so im-
mersed mulcting the territory for their personal
profit that they have failed to grow with growing
demands of the two territories, and are unfitted
for leaders of the coming state.
According to President Roosevelt, a cor-
ruptiomst is neither a Democrat or a Republi-
can, he is a thu f. What the Republican party of
thecomin|gstateJshould do with the few'of its past
leaders who are now trying to win the party for
corporations, with corporation money, is to
place the stamp of public condemnation upon
them for all men to read and so make them un-
able to longer cheat the public under the guise
of party loyalty and public patriotism, It will
be more apt to succeed without than with their

Persia a Constitutional Monarchy.
While we are creating a new state out of a
wilderness Persia is waking out centuries of
a seatrapv and forming a Constitutional Monarchy
Think of it, Persia that land of legend and
Eastern romance of swooring Moons and sighing
Zulikas, where the bulbul sings in the palmeto
groves beside the perfumed streams and the pyre
burns on the monntain, where the pleasure of
life is its sacrifice and reality is a dream—Persia,
veiled in the myst of centuries as is veiled the
beauty of its women; Persia that has given bright-
er colors to art, softer tints to human passion,
greater glamour to civilization, is to become a
democracy where the common many shall rule
the chosen few instead of the divinely annointed
few the common many!
The Sbah, through his ministir Mizro
Nazsrollah Khan Mochiredolet, has
ordered a national assembly to form a consti-
tution, which will turn the East into a West. It
is electricity that did it. Electricity is leveling
the woid. Elecrticitv is intelligence. It ma ces
inroads everywhere and embroils 'hi igs. It
deadens the quic'-c and quickens the dead. It
moves the inert and nol:!s fast the flying.
But then what Persia lo.ses in its sleeping
dreams it will gain in its waking ones. Its camel
caravans will be changed to Pullman flyers, iti
fire worshipers will become worshipers of ou'!
the seclusion of its harems the political arena 't
womans tights, and the iife and death powr>r
transferred from an hei e litary Shah to a poli ic4
Persia a Constitutional government! Wnat
a sacrilige is that on the vari-colored silken
eshes of history into the very infancy of the race!

Interior Departments Claim of Defeat-
ins the Warren Amendment
The Interior Department has sent out an As- !
sociated Press report claiming credit for defeat-
ing the Warien amendment to the statehood '
bill that made provision for leasing school lands !
for mineral purposes.
When the Interior Department gees to that I
distance to claim cred.t tnere must be some 1110- :
tive in it, either to de.Liid.its I for not hav 11 ■
taken action against the Warren amendment • '
to take credit away from others. The edit >r t
the Register has b fore him the report of t
statehood committee confer ;ice on the Warr a
amendment and finds t ir:y-0ne p tges o tne r
port devoted to the testimony of Gov ernor I-'ran z
before the committee. It is a remarkly able
statement of the conditions under \>. hich ti e
lands are held by the territory and e ,sed to ih
present renters and the effect the Warren amend-
ment would have upon the rights of the terri-
tory and the lessees.
To our mind it clearly pro es that whoever
else may have appeared before the statehood
committee protesting against the scheme to rob
the territory of its school lands, it was this argu-
ment of Governor l*rantz that prevented the
Warren amendment from being adopted by the
committee. To convince others of this fact the
State Register proposes to print this testimony
of the Governor, even if, because of its length, it
has to do it in serial form.
There is a nigger in the wood pile about
that Warren amendment somewhere, or there
woul .n't be such a desire upon the part of the
Interior Department to claim credit where credit
is not due it. Nothing appears anywhere that
th ■ Interior Department protested against the
Warren amendment. The only thing it did was
after protect was made against it, to send the
data in its possession to the committee showing
the applications made to lease the lands for
