Every line of type will be set in the
office and every dollar for composi-

and Canadian county printers. We
do not believe in the practice of print-
ing six pages of patent insides in
Oklahoma City and two pages in El
Reno and then calling it an El Reno
paper. Such an alledged newspaper
may suit a portion of the board of
county commissioners and a few
county officers with stock in such
concerns; but the people of Canadian
county want a better county paper

The republicans are worse disgust-
ed with Lincolnism than the demo-
crats. They say, that through the as-
saninlty of the mayor and two or
three republican councilmen, they
have lost more than they gained by
being successful in the city election.
We do nift believe that Mayor Lin-
coln is a lineal decendan: of old
honest Abe. Old Abe held the high-
est office in the gift of the people and
[lives today enshrined in the hearts
of every American, and no salary
grab was ever traced to his door.

A few more accidents in the navy

Stant Jackson is an awful nice fel-
low, but what has he ever done for
the taxpayers of El Reno, that an of

Is it a fact, or is it a dream, that
the president, only five months ago,
recommended a tariff revision com-
mission to congress as a practical
remedy for trust evils?
Nothing better was expected of
Jackson and Sackett than to become
a party to an executive hold up of
the treasury; but the people are
shocked at Benuett and Mr. Hum-
A traveler who has just returned

We presume the reason Mayor Lin-
coln wanted a star chamber session
to grab a raise of salary, was to give
the wireless phonograph of the Amer-
ican, a chance to lie about the demo-
cratic members of the council.

No such difficulty was experienced
in classifying the whispering hybrid
of the American. It was discovered
in pants but was promptly put in pet-
tycoats and turned over to the mat-
ron of the show.
There has got to be an examination
of th books, before the democrats of
this county will ever elect another
democratic county ticket. The tax-
payers know that there has been rot-
tenness in connection with the col-
lection of the cattle tax in the new
country, they have reasons to believe
that there was monkey business in
connection with the sale of the court
house bonds and the preparation of
the court house plans; they are sus-
picious of other departments of the
county and nothing short of an ex-
amination of the books from top to
bottom will satisfy them. If the dem-
ocrats do not do it themselves, the
republicans will do it for them at
the next election. With the city in
their controle it will be an easy mat-
ter for them to elect every county of-
ficer, especially with the general feel-
ing that prevails in the country that
the present court house gang is rot-
ten to the core.
Our reform mayor when he voted
to give the city printing to his friend
and cografter Greer, pledged his of-
f t'-sa that Greer would not
charge but half the legal rate. Now
we shall watch and see if our Wash-
ington, D. C„ friend keeps his eye
on wireless Charleys graft and his
word with the city council.

I There is nothing strange about the
defense the American is putting up
for the salary grabbers and carpet-
baggers. The American brought
nothing to this town, and has noth-
ing except what it has grabbed from
the people of El Reno In bonuses and
unreasonable charges for alleged
services. The Guthrie appendix is
not here for its health, in fact its
real owner is not here at all.
As there^ were no newspaper men
with the president in the Yellowstone
Park there is no reason why the stor-
ies of his adventures may not be
veritable "shilling shockers."
President Baer deflesthe Interstate
Commerce Commission to prove that
his companies, they are legion, are
breaking the law by owning coal
mines and operating railroads at one
and the same time. If, however, the
commission proves that the compan-
ies are within the law it will be a
step in the right direction. It will
demonstrate the necessity of rev's-
ing the law.

by a vote of six for and two against-
two democrats voting for, and one re-
publican against its passage.-Ameri-
