delegates who will seek admission to
the county convention tomorrow for
the 18th precinct. The first delegates,
undoubtedly irregularly selected, are
J. Fleming, John C. Moore, Chas:
Moore, Smith Grubb, Jack Everets,
Kid Hogan and J. W. Robinson. The
second and legitimate delegation
under the call consists of O. J. Flem-
ing, John Dollar, Chas. Moore, W. B.
Wright, Neeley Hidgen, Fred Mc-
Clane, Smith Grubb and A. F. Hol-
comb. Under the rules governing
primaries the latter named delegates
ire undoubtedly entitled to seats in
the county convention, because the
other delegates were selected by
those present before the polls were
closed according to the call.
The 19th and 20 precinct elected the
following distinguished delegates.

The date has been fixed for the con-
sideration of omnibus statehood • bill
of Oklahoma, Ar izona and New Mex-
ico. The speaker of the house and
the committee on rules have agreed
that the bill shall be taken up on
Tuesday, April 24th.
The friends of statehood for Okla-
homa in Washington desired to have
the matter come up on the 22nd of
April, it being the anniversary of the
opening of the territory to settlement
but on account of the fact that the
democratic congresssional convention
at Enid was set for that day, congress
thought it wise to postpone the con-
sideration of the Omnibus bill for
fear it might become necessary to in-
corporate the action of this conven-
tion in the bill. Congress is grooping
for light on the statehood question
and unless Tom Doyle, Bob Forrest
or Bill Cross is given an opportunity
to enlighten them upon the subject,
they will probably act in darkness

"For this reason," the gentleman
said, "it is not possible that Ivan Con-
klin of Enid, will land the plum.
While such a thing might happen, of
course, yet it is not likely. In the
first place Mr. Flynn would not be
favorable to such a plan; and again
the president would not appoint a
man in direct opposition to the wishes
of Mr. Flynn or of Mr. Low either.

John Embry has strong territorial
support and may yet win the judge-
ship. His support is said to be equal
to that of Gillette. Judge Strang has
strong backing and is known to have
made great inroads recently toward

Attorney of Alva, Judge Green of
this city, and Judge Cullison of Enid,
are being supported loyally by their
friends fur the position.
We are in favor of men for our leg-
slature who will introduce and force
through the house a bill for the "Com-

Judge Scott In Town.
Judge Henry W. Scott, late Associ-
ate Judge of the Supreme Court,
stationed at Oklahoma City, under
the administration of that illustrious
duck hunter, Grover Cleveland, ar-
rived in Enid last night.
Judge Scott is a man who naturally
draws the attention of a listener to
his conversation as he is a thorough
scholar and one of the best posted
men in America on the passing polit-
ical events of his day and generation.
While the Wave roasted Judge
S:ott to a brown finish on some of his
arbitrary and revengeful rulings while
on the bench, yet it has an admiration
for him in his relations to the world,
on account of his being a thorough,
ell posted and intelligent student of
the political situation of our beloved
republic. The true democracy of
Judge Scott appears in every sen
tence of his conversation on political
issues. The leading democrats of
Enid gave the Judge a hearty wel-
come, on his first visit to our expand-

character of Judge Conklin. The
house was his residence for six years
during the early days. This is pub-
lished for the reason that the article
was misinterpreted by some.
A bloody battle ocCured in the
Osage nation Sunday between tw
cowmen. The particulars are meage
and the true story of the affair is
lacking. It was said to be the result
however, of the heavy shipments in-
to that country recently of so many
southern cattle to pasture. The re-
port started that one man had been
arrested and was being guarded until
the arrival of deputy marshals. The
fight is supposed to have taken place
on the John Ferrall ranch, north of
Pawkuska, and knives were alleged
to have been the favorite weapons.
Senator Spooner was discussing
oleomargarine. He engaged in
colloquy with Mr. Money of Missis-
sippi, insisting that while some men
might digest the imitation butter he
was unable to do so. "The senator
will address the chair," interrupted
Mr. Blackburn, who was temporarily
'Certainly;" replied Mr. Spooner
turning around and addressing Mr
Blackburn. "And I repeat to you
Mr. President, that, while a man of
your active habits might digest oleo-
margaine, I could not do it."
And Mr. Blackburn did not know
whether to laugh or be angry. Wash

Mr. and Mrs. John T. Hatten, living
near Pond Creek, quarreled, and
the wife asked the court for an order,

order asked for was granted, but
when the sheriff went out to the Hat-
ten farm to serve papers on the man
in the case he was not to be found.
Mrs. Hatten says that her husband
threatened suicide by cutting his
throat. He changed his mind and
gave her the knife asking her to do
the job. Failing to accommodate
him, the woman says he became an-
gry and said he would lay in the creek
until he was dead—but he came back
home in about two hours having given
up that plan also. Mr. Hatter then
got on a horse and rode away. His
wife told the officer that she did not
know where he was but thought he
would eventualy retrace his steps
homeward. The Hatten's have only

CLIMATE AND CROPS.
Oklahoma City, Okla., April 14, 1902
The cool, damp weather during the
week produced favorable conditions
for the growth of crope, and placed
the grounds in tine condition for cul-
tivation and seeding.
Temperatures were below .and pre-
cipitation much above the weekly
average. Copious and heavy rains
occured generally o®. the 10th, 11th,
12th and 13th. Hail caused some
slight damages on the 10th, over a

have been replanted to corn.

Corn planting is nearing completion
the early planted is coming up to a
good stand. In some counties the
work was hindered by heavy rains.
Early potatoes are coming up and
making a good growth.
Grass has made a slow growth but
some stock is being turned out.
Cotton ground was prepared and
planting is in progress.
Vegetables are in fine condition and
making fair growth.
Fruit prospect are fine, and all
kinds are doing well: apple, cherry
and pear trees are blooming out.
We believe that an equitable por-
tion of the net income from each
tract of public land should be re-
turned for locaJ purposes to the
school district of the township in
which such tract lies.
We hereby instruct our delegation
to the Enid convention to use all
honorable means to secure the adop
tion of this plank as a part of the
democratic territorial platform.
