Just over the line in Kansas the
railroads are assessed fifty per cent
higher than in Oklahoma. Over on
the Kansas side other property is as-
sessed at one-third its cash value
On the Oklahoma side all property
other than railroad is assessed at its
full cash value. On the Kansas side
of the line every family has exempt
from taxation $200 worth of proper-
ty. On the Oklohoma side of that
imaginary line, nothing is exempt
These facts present powerful argu-
ments for statehood.—Times-Journal.
Oh yes, but statehood wouldn't
stop the looting of the peoples
money. Men in Oklahoma are as
prone to loot as the hogs are to
root and it makes very little differ-
ence in what way you try to trap
them they will loot anyhow. State-
hood would check the present system
of stealing but would inaugurate a
new system more tiresome than the
present one. Of course, the people
would get a lick at the thieves at
the ballot box but it would be just
like t> e people to elect the biggest
thief in the puddle just because he
was a thief which many people call
a bright smart good fellow.

Four daily newspapers have with-
in the last few days raised their sub-
scription rates, viz: The Mansfield,
O., Daily News, the Johnstown, Pa.,
Daily Democrat and the two daily
papers at Benton Harbor, Mich.
The reason offered in each case is
the increased cost in the price of
print paper, since the formation of
the paper trust, and the largely in-
creased expenses incident to the
The Fair Association
The Fair Association held an in-
teresting meeting last night. The
committee on bylaws reported and
after considerable doctoring here
and there the laws were adopted.
Owing to the late hour after the
association adopted the laws the
meeting adjourned until Thursday
night when the officers will oe elect-
ed. Under the law enacted last
night at least one fourth of the
stock must be represented in a meet-
ing to do business.
It was thought that lot jumping
was a misdemeanor of the past in
Jonesville, but it seems that sorrel
mule McMillen thinks it a good
scheme yet as he refused to pay his
landlord rent, next refused to move
out of the house, next jumped it and
put a llitte shack addition to it in
the night time. The people of Jones-
ville should sit down on McMillen's
dishonest work or there will be more
lots jumped in Josey.

A CALF YAP.
The Enid Wave accused a man of
selling liquor, but after a more
serious thought it apologized.—
Seriously speaking and seriously
thinking the Wav«o is quite certain
it didn't do any such a thing and it
is also quite certain that the above
item is the most foolish, most unin-
