HARMONY IN NEW YORK.
The New York Democratic conven
tion is called to meet on June 5th to
elect 72 delegates to the national
convention at Kansas City, They
will go uninstructed, but will cast
their votes for Bryan as soon as they
discover the trend of the public sen-
timent in the convention. A large
majority of the delegates will be for
him from the start. Ex.Senator
David B. Bill declared at the meet-
ing of the state committee on the
20th that "it is our year this year,
and you can," said Mr. Hill, "say
that there is harmony with a big H

POOR OLD CONSTITUTION.
Prom the way the Democrats seem
to be worrying over the Constitution,
it would appear that they have for-
gotten that there is a supreme court,
whose chief duty it is to safeguard
that sacred document.—Pond Creek
No, the Democratic party has not
forgotten that there is a supreme
court, but we remember that it de-
clared the income tax law unconsti-
tutional, which indicated beyond
doubt that the supreme court is con-
trolled by the same gang of American
millionaire looters who control the
republican congress and president.
A republican official, high or iow,
don't allow the Constitution to inter-
fere with anything he wants io do.
The republican party treats the Con-
stitution as the devil does the laws of
IT IS TO LAUGH.
"What is the reason," indignantly
exclaims Senator Davis, taking his
ear from the ground, "that this tariff
rate, anomalous, unheard of, unpre-
cedented, and temporary, should be
applied to Puerto Rico, while the
other day a bill was passed in the
other house appropriating $2,000,000
for Puerto Rico from the treasury?"
The answer is not far to fetch.
One reason is, it enaDles the trusts to
absorb the tariff money and also the
donation; a double profit, see? An-
other reason is to give Senator Davis
and other Hannaites an opportunity
to hoodwink the dear people with
their pretended humanity.

date: "He kissed the babe an

ful and wished he had two. But that

recipe—of course that tickled ma,
But that don't count. But just be-
fore he left he stopped and winked

The Oklahoma hen is doing good
work this year. During the month of
March, 74,020 dozen or 895,440 eggs,
were shipped out of Enid. The aver-
age price during that month was 10
cents per dozen, making an egg busi
nes6 amounting to $7,462.00, or an
average of $248.75 per day during the
month. Most of the eggs shipped
from here go to New York. The
shipment of poultry during March
was fully as large.
BIG INSURANCE BUSINESS,
Secretary Jenkins has compiled

Few realize what a deep-seated, obstinate disease Catarrh is, regarding it as a simple inflammation of
the nose and throat, little or no attention is given it. But, however insignificant it may seem at first, it
is serious and far-reaching in its results. .
The foul secretions entering the circulation poison the entire system. The stomach, kidneys in
fact all the organs —feel the effect of this catarrhal poison, and when the lungs are reached its progress
is rapid and destructive, and finally ends in consumption.
It frequently happens that the senses of hearing and smell are in part or entirely lost, the soft bones of
the nose eaten into and destroyed, causing intense suffering and greatly disfiguring the face. \\ lnle sprays,
washes and salves may give temporary relief, no permanent benefit can be expected from such treatment
CATARRH 18 A CONSTITUTIONAL OR BLOOD DISEASE,
and far beyond the reach of mere local remedies. Those who rely upon them for a cure lose valuable time, meet with disap-
pointment and allow the disease to take firmer hold. Only a real blood remedy can reach this troublesome and dangerous disease^
S. S. S cures Catarrh because it first cleanses and builds up the blood, purifies it, makes it rich and healthy, stimulates and
puts new life into the sluggish worn-out organs, and thus relieves the system of all poisonous accumulations.
Mrs. Josephine Polhlll, of Due West, S. C., writes: " I had Catarrh, whicli tiecame so deep-
seated that I was entirely deaf in one ear. and all inside of my nose, including part of the Done,
sloughed off. When the disease had gone this far the physfcian gave me up as incurable. I
determined to try S. S. S as a last resort, and began to improve at once. It seemed to get at the
seat of the disease, and after a few weeks' treatment I was entirely cured, and for more than
•even years have had no sign of the disease."
S. S. S. is made of roots, herbs and barks of wonderful tonical and purifying
properties. It is the only vegetable blood purifier known, and a certain and safe
cure for all blood troubles. Send for our book on Blood and Skin Diseases, and at
the same time write our physicians about your case. They will cheerfully give you

SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, GA.
The republican county convention
yesterday ended in considerable dis-
satisfaction among many of the dele-
gates. It was a cut and dried affair
managed by three or four men.
John Buckles was made permanent
chairman of the convention and the
temporary secretaries were tn .de
permanent. Buckles claims that it
was "me al.d Hanna" that turned the
National convention of '96 to McKin.
ley, which Bill remembered by mak-
ing Buckles postmaster at Enid
The convention leaders were whipped
into line for Harry Thompson easily.
The committee on resolutions re-
ported in favor of a delegation to the
territorial convention that would
stand by Farmer (?) Harry Thompson
to the tail end of Bitter creek.
Later a motion was made and carried
to the effect that Harry Tnompson
should receive the unanimous sup.
port of the Garfield county Delega-
tion in the republican convention for
a delegate to Philadelphia and that
he be allowed to select the delegation.
This nas on the old fashioned favor-
ite son line, and, here is where the
dissatisfaction came in. Thompson
named the following gentlemen to do
his bidding in the coming struggle:
John Jenson, Martin Garber,
0. A. Wood, Andrew Morrison,
Jesse Scritchfield, Val Johnson,
Herman Frantz, E. Haight,
John Ingmire, Ret Millard,
W. I. Drummond, W, D. Jenkins,
W. S. Williams, G. W. Chapman,
A. J. Yoeman, Prank Rogers,
J. K. Julian, P. E. Hills,
J. C. Dilllon, G M. Disney,
1. G. Conkling, N. Hoffman,
J. B. Campbell, J. M. McCoy.
Harry Thompson is a very nice gen-
tleman socially, out as a politician
he is au expert actor. He has the
local leadership of the republican
party of this county under his thumb
completely. When Harry touches a
button the whole derned monkey show
commences to dance. Bill McKinley
has said that he was opposed to being
nominated by his appointees in feder-
al positions, yet the republican ma-
chine of this county dumped the
wishes of McKinley like the republi-
can congress does the Constitution.
Our citizen, Mr. O. J. Fleming, se-
cured a five minute interview with
Bryan at Wichita. Mr. Bryan re-
membered Mr. Fleming, having been
entertained at the Fleming home
while in this city in June '95.
A Detroit clergyman advances the

The loss of the diamond made the

from the way the Eagle treated

A SAD STORY.
From the Kingfisher Free Press:
A very remarkable incident occur-
red here this week. The story is of a
young hoy who ran away from his
home, telling his sister he would not
return until he was in better circum-
stances. He was 22 years old at
death. Fifteen years passed and the
boy was a man. Fickle fortune h; d
refused to smile upon him. He was,
intact, very unfortunate. Drifting
into Kingfisher with the railroad
gang, penniless, the scenes of hi"
childhood left far behind him, and no
future, except a repetition of the
present, before him, he sickened and
died. His railroad friends buried
him with ail honors, but without noti-
fying his family, of whom they knew
He died on March 27 and was buried
the next day.
This week his brother, B. Lawton,
Jr., came for the body. In the mys-
terious workings of providence, the
folks at home learned of his death.
Monday the body was shipped to
Lenoxville, Mass., to the old father
and mother; to the home he left
when so young; perhaps, who knows,
in better circumstances.
Our young friend, Vernon Whiting,
was promoted in politics, the other
dav, through his election as eight-
eenth vice president of the young
men's repul lican club. On hearing
this good t ews we immediately dis-

THE VERY LATEST
HOT LAW SUIT.
The suit brought before Justice J.
B. Morgan last week, in which R. E.
Duncan sued George Poor for dam-
ages for killing or injuring stock,
while trespassing, was decided in
favor of the defendant, no positive
evidence haying been established to
prove his guilt. We are informed
that the attorneys in the case were
subjected to numerous insults—vile
language being hurled at them with-
out the slightest provocation. It is
a wonder to us that attorneys will
stand such abuse. M. A. Duff and M.
C. Garber appeared for the plaintiff
and J. W. Steen of Enid, for the de-
fendant. -Garber Trumpet.
Boss Quay, of Pennsylvania, was
refused a seat in the United States
senate the other day by a vote of 32
to 33. Quay is one of the toughest
politicians on the American conti-
nent. He has had complete control
of the republican political machine
of Pennsylvania for years and runs
politics as the devil would run it. A
hot fight against him in Pennsylvania
resulted in the failure of the legisla-
ture to elect a United States senator,
hut the Quay men stuck to their boss
to the bitter end, however, they
lacked a majority. The governor
appointed Quayrto fill the vacancy,
but the senate has said nit,

from Oklahoma City, where he had
met with the committee that has in
charge the Rough Rider reunion
there on July 1, 2, 3 and 4. Charley
is sure that the reunion will be the
biggest thing that ever happened in
Oklahoma. Oklahoma City is fixing
to entertain a great crowd at that
time.—El Reno Globe.
