HI Reno people are well acquainted
with Mr. Cope and Mr Phelps They
know Mrs Grigsby and are familiar

Phelps and they voted against them

An old farmer came in yesterday
to buy some groceries and when told
t y a merchant, that Cope and
Phelps had lost E1 Reno bv nearly 100
rotes, he was dumfounded. He in-
quired the r<>aaon. and was told by

Say Maud, don't you really think
that R N. Whittlesey, the hired man
on the Blobell is just a little bit fresh
in this county to aspire to run the
democratic party? He is almost too
fresh to run for office let alone to
run the party.
Major E. I Simpson was nominated
by the democrats as their candidate
for councilman from Canadian and
Kingfisher counties. This selection
does credit to the democrats of this
council district aail when elected.
Major Simpson will do honor to the
entire district — Mustang Mail
Now that the primary election is
by the eternal, the Sentinel will over and the conventions all pulled
alarm in all classes. Minister Powell
at the request of the merchants, saw
the president and asked as to the
truth of the report. He replied that
no statement of that character had
ever been made.
Minister Powell gives in detail an
account of the anti-Syrian movement.
He says the trouble originated in the
market, where a soldier having made
some purchases for which he tender-
ed a dollar, was refused change. The
market people stood together and at-
tacked the soldiers, one of whom was
killed. For a time the situation look
ed dangerous as the soldier's com-
rades came from the barracks fully
armed, only to be met by a full arm-
ed police force. Minister Powell hast-
ened to General Ferere. the minister
for foreign affairs and demanded pro-
tection for the Syrians who were
principally naturalized Americans.
He was told that the disorders were
owing to enemies of the government
and especially to the friends of the
Haytien hank prisoners. President
Nord said that before he would re-
lease these prisoners without trial he
would cut his own throat, but he
promised full protection to the for
eigners in Hayli.

era simply go from ward to ward vot-
ing as they go and in the country all
around the border of the county men
from outside counties are voted like

oate of the system up to this time, but
from this time on, we shall advocate
a return to the convention plan, until
a law is passed that will send the
members of a corrupt ring to the peni-
tentiary, for buying voters like sheep

Take the man named for county attor-
ney the returns show that for every
democratic vote he received, there
were three and a half votes cast
against him, yet he is declared the
choice of the party and hi* name will
be printed on the official ballot. In
other words 70 per cent of the demo-
crats of this county voted against Mr
C^ope, and 30 per cent for him Under
this system, manipulated as it was
by a gang of treasury looters and bal
lot box stuffers 70 democrats out of
