Senator Piatt spoke on the Indian
q uestion in the senate Wednesday
and supported the Berry bill, with
an amendment that a commissioner
set in the place of a governor. He
favored the breaking up of the tribal
governments, and to show the injus-
tice of the present system cited the
The senator addressed himself to
the Berry bill to some e::tent, and
declared that the conditions in that
country demand immediate action
on the part of congress. The lime
had come for congress to protect the
rea* Indian. The white Indians had
been in the habit of coming here in
the last few years, and through their
lobby had been able to delay action.
All the lands and valuable mineral
interests in that country have been
appropriated by the white Indians.
As an instance, some years ago a
while woman married an Indian and
lived near the present town of Dun-
can. Later the Indian died, and a
little later the woman married a
white man, and the two, now claim-
ing to be Indians, have under fence
over 17,000 acres of land and own the
town of Duncan.
Senator Piatt is ranking member
on the committees on Indian affairs
and territories and it is conceeded
that he is better posted on the sub-
ject than anyone else in the senate.
It is also known that he can come
nearer having his way about filings
in Indian matters than anyone. His
suggestions about the commission
appear to meet the approval of
other senators and it Is believed his
speech makes clear certain matters
pending of great interest to ihat

The Wave has the smallest bona-
llde circulation of any paper that
was ever published in Enid, and to-
day has the smallest circulation of
any daily paper between Wichita and
Ft. Worth. This statement is not
made through a spirit of vanity but
is given out as a pointer to tiie busi-
ness men of Enid that they may know
where to plant their advertisements
in order to get their wares before the
Ever since Adam published the
Daily Garden of Eden Bugle, every
paper that has ever been published
in the world has claimed the largest
circulation until the readers thereof
have sighed for something new.
The largest circulation chestnut bell
has been rung harder than any other
bell in the world and the public, as a
general thing, look npon all such
statements as "horn tooting" or
right down prevarication. Even if
the Wave had the largest circula-
tion of anv paper on earth we would
not claim it through the columns of
the paper, simply because people pay
no attention to such statements.
Anyone having any business to know
what the Wave's circulation is can
get the information at the office.
Therefore, just for a change, and for
the purpose of being odd, in the pub-
lication of a newspaper, which is the
ambition of the spirit abiding here,
we use the word "smallest'" instead
of "largest." One thing is certain
the Wave can stand a'l the paid-up
circulation it can get.
The two republican editors of this

NOT AN EMPTY VICTORY.
I'Vom the St. Louis Republic.
Republican indignation has sub-
sided. No republican tariff measure
to restore wages is yet proposed.
Nothing is said of a new law to
guard the liberties of the colored
Jjrethern in the south.
Whether this lameness is an admis-
sion that the country is with the
democratic repeals of the two typical
republican laws- the McICinley tariff
and the federal elections statute—or
only a wllv refusal to show the re-
publican hand, It is sufficient to prove
that the g. o. p. is not possessed with
the impatience of moral convictions.
Our democratic congress has a
session longer to live and yet has
accomplished reforms of which re-
publicans do not care to make issues
for a calm discussions.

From the I'o id t'.-eek Voice.
For the past few weeks our City
has been in the throes of a dirty
scandal. It has not been mentioned |
only in whispers for it is said that
the husband it a bold bad uian aud |
was out gunning for someone; a clash j
was expected every hour. Time past,
and the excitement commenced to j
wane: when all at once the bad man
found his victim and a row was im-
minent, when the marshal inter-
fered and placed the parties under j
arrest. Then again Thursday night j
the husband, who considered himself
a much abused man, was engaged
in a conversation with a party, he
suddenly ventured the assertion
that he knew a man not thirty
miles from here who could whip the
"stufin" out of his companion. This
his companion acknowledged and
said that be did not doubt it a bit.
He then reiterated his remark and
added that he thought he could do
it in less than a minute. This the
other man objected to and remarked
that lie was not man enough. This
enraged the wronged husband who
pulled his si::-shooler and blowed a
hole right through the curta:n of
light. His companion not liking his
action hurridly left. After the ex-
citement had abated the cuckood
husband then sought his virtuous
bale of hay in the feed yard and
awaited the coming of the police.
The stars winked their tired eyes
and the modest moon drew a veil
across her features.
The husband still has his grievance
and the other man has recovered
EDITING A NEWSPAPEG.
From the Edtno id News.
Editing a newspaper is fun—if you
can stand it. If it contains many
advertisements there are subscribers
who will complain that the ads take
loo much space; if there is a scarcity
of advertising they will say that the
paper is unpopular and won't have
it. If we attend church regularly it
is for effect; if we stay away we are
branded as a heathen. If there is a
wedding in town and the editor at-
tends they say he was invited just to
write it up. If he consigns a long
winded communication that has
neither head or tail, to the waste
basket its author gets hot and stops
his paper; when we publish such
things, they say the editor lacks dis-
cretion and puts in anything to "fill
up." If seen on the streets they will
say the editor neglects his business;
if he avoids going on the streets they
say he doesn't hustle enough for
news. If we show a man who has
brought disgrace upon his family, the
friends of that family never for-
give us; if out of goodheartedness we
let him peacefully alone the man's
enemies call the editor a white-
livered coward. All these and many
more are the adversities of the man
who sails out into the sea of journal-
ism, no matter on what pretentions.
The editor of the News is young and
anxious to learn and can stand all
these raps and many more, and is
always ready to receive visitors,
whether accompanied by a dog or
not. We do not claim there is any
work in running a newsoaper; every-
one knows it's a snap.
WEBSTER DID NOT APPRECIATE
How little our fathers appreciated
the resources of their country and of
their people, it is almost impossible
to realize. Mr. Webster expressed
the general mind when lie opposed
the establishment of a mail route in
the great west, in the time of Van
Buren. "What do we want," he ex-
claimed, "with this vast,, worthless
area this region of savages and
wild beasts, of deserts of shifting
sands and whirlwinds of dust, of
cactus and prairie dogs? To what
use could we ever hope to put these
great deserts, or . Iiese endless moun-
tain ranges, Impenetrable and cov-
ered to their very base with ete ual
unow? What can we ever hope to do
i the western coast of .1,000 miles,
i L lound, cheerless, uninviting,
inil ti it a harbor on it? What use
have e for this country?"
LOVE AND BULLETS.
Mrs. Josephine Regan, of Hutchin-
son, Kansas, has shown a certain
gallant of that town, Herbert by
name, that she Is not a' woman to be
tritied with. There had been tender
passages between the two. Berben
had lifted the drooping spirits o"
the stricken Josephine. He smiled
at her as the passed the butcher's
shop. He wore aprons of a beauty
aud a whiteness that spoke his love.
He Bighed as he cut off fillets for his
j customers and he sent her little
| messages of ljver and brisket that
could not be mistaken. And then,
when he had brought the light back
to her eyes with chops' and perma-
nently entangled her affections in
strings of choicest sausage, the faith-
less Herbert sheered off. He balked
at the only logical culmination of
such addresses and left the trusting
Josephine to mourn the treachery of
man, who, according to li'.ll Nye, is
small potatoes and few in a b'U. Bjt
I Herbert knows better now. In that
world beyond our mortal ga e, where
i all the riddles of this life are solved,
j the recreant Herbert precelves that
! lie blundered when he won a woman's
heart with tripe only to break it
afterward with mildewed treachery.
For Josephine got out her little gun
and went around to Herbert's shop
and did a job of butchering he-self,
and the traitor sleeps beneath I he

yes: Herbert is wiser now.—E\\

TRIMMING UP THE BRANCHES. I 'Oh I'm broke you know, but I can
The receivers of the Santa Fe road ^ Stand the grocer and them other fel-
have filed their petition asking to be
permitted to discontinue certain
Kansas branches. In the old boom
days it was a mighty small hamle
in Kansas that couldn't get a branch.
Of course every hamlet was going to
be a city and every one voted bonds
as long as the people could hold their
breaths. Equity would sworn to say
If the railroad is now to be permitted
to lop off the branch, the various
lawns ought to be permitted to lop
off the bonds, but no matter whether
the road stops or goes on we suppose
the interest account will run right
along; at least until the various
towns become so completely broke
that Ihey can pay no longer.—Kansas
The above item should be a warn-
ing to the people of Oklahoma terri-
tory. Kansas is honey-combed with
railroads that are a burden to the
corporations who own t hem and the
people who bonded themselves to get
them. There are more first class
towns with only one railroad than
there are that have a half do-.en.
Fortunately for Oklahoma the stat-
utes forbid the voting of bonds to
railroads, as there are thousands of
people in this country who would vo^e
for bonds every day in the week.
The Wave feels that its mission is
to make men wiser and better—at
$5 per year for the daily and $1.25 for
the weekly with cheap, hard time
figures for plain and fancy job work.

TWO KINDS OF AMERICAN'S.
The great American people in
their actions very frequently imi-
tate the illustrious American hog.
In this day and age when a man
gets what is vulgarly called "a snap"
he goes to work on it just like a hog
would on a bushel of corn, us to
much for'him and the first tiling he
does is to root it all around the pen
taking a bite out of this ear and then
another until the whole mess is
spoiled and trampled under foot,
then when he gets hungry again goes
rooting around to find what he lost,
but it is too late. So it is with a
man who has a snap and loses It he
goes around trying to recover it.

FUN FOR THE NEWSPAPARS.
Hard on the Delinquent Subscribers
s ie ;'t to ilie Wave,
Guthrie, O. T., December 17—A
decision of interest to newspaper
men was rendered here today. A
year ago thirty leading populists of
Payne entered into an agreement
with George II. Doud to publish a
paper in thelr interests and guaran-
teeing liim 10,000 subscribers at $1 a
year. The paper was started but
the subscribers failed to materialize
and Doud sued for damages. He has
just secured a verdict for $477.
Several other newspaper men in the
territory who had made like agree-
ments, it is said, will bring similar
two feet, and was instantly 1.''led,
every bone in his body being broken.
That yound man's cross was as hard
to bear as the one scripture speaks
GOLD IN THE MOUNTAINS.
There is very little doubt concerning
the finding o " gold in the Wichita
mountains: 't is cortainly there, it is
only a question whether it is there in
quantity enough to pcy for the labor
of" mining it. The Wichita liagle in-
timates that the gold was found fn
the teeth of the skeleton lately dis-
covered in the mountains. Well,
don't pay any attention to the Eagle,
It never could see anything in boom
for any place on earth except its own
windy wonder Wichita. Let the
other Wichita have a boom once.
There is considerable agitation
over a report that the postoffice is
to be moved to the government acre.
L:ke the depot the location of the
postoffice is another bug-a-boo. The
postoffice gathers a crowd but sells
very few goods; a man going to the
office is after his mail and don't buy
much goods enroute. The Wave
don't care whether the office is
moved or stays where it is.
A speculator from the east, who
thought the strength of the Rock Is-
land railroad stronger than the jus-
tice qualifications of the United
States government bought a lot on Ok
lahoma avenue in the north precinct
or tank addition directly opposite
of the late fire, or burnt d'stWcf. He
was offered $350 for it once, today lie
writes a friend in this city to try to
get $100 out of it. Oh! how the an-
gels of earth are sometimes deceived
Some of the houses in Enid must be
decidedly tender. The Wave says
that a young gentleman there who
was calling on his girl, leaned up
against the wall and the house fell
Ah there, Victor. He fell through
the partition anil the eight day clock
fell on his moist brow.
The expression on a fellow citi-
zen's face when he hears the click of
the postoffice door lock just as he was
about to grasp the knob to get in, is
pitiful to behold and the cussi ig
classical. If it happens to be a
professed christian the cussing is in
audible, the moving lips can be
observed however, and the cuss words
ascend to the throne In a whisper.
But If it happens to be an unre-
deemed homesteader living twenty
miles in the country the profanity Is
strong enough to cut a hole in the
blue canopy and cause the man In
the moon to turn over and watch the
Chinese war awhile.
Here’s what’s next.
