Last night, about «:2n o'clock, the
old lire bell pealed forth another
warning that there was another fire
in the city. The lire laddies under
Chief Jake Roach, were soon in line
flying to the rescue. The fire was in
the sample room of the Hubbard
House, which is in the northwest
rear corner of the large frame struc-
ture. The fire had gained consider
able headway before it was discover-
ed and as the house is a frame struc-
ture built entirely of inflamable yel-
low pine, it is a miracle that the boys
reached it in time to subdue the
The origin of the fire is much of a
mystery to Col. Hubbard, the proprie-
tor, because no commerciil men had
used the room during the day and so
far as the manager of the hotel
knows, no one had entered the sam-
ple room during yesterday. A drum-
mer's trunks had been placed in the
room the day before, but as he was
out making neighborhood tours hence
the contents of his trunks had not
been opened up.
It is quite evident that the tire
started under a table setting in the
east end of the room under which was
a mattress and a feather bed which
were destroyed. This fact might lead
to the belief that it was a spontan-
eous combustion, but such never oc-
curs in the absence of inflamable
The firemen arrived not a moment
too soon. Five minutes more an]
the Hubbard House would have been
covered by the cruel flames.
The loss to the building and furni.
ture of the hotel is estimated at $328.
Mrs. Hubbard and her daughter
had considerable personal household
goods stored in the room in boxes,
which were considerably damaged by
the fire and water. Mr. and Mrs.
Hunsecker had considerable clothing
and other household effects in the
tire which is almost a total loss. It is
safe to say that the damage will
amouut to over $800.
No insurance on anything but the
hotel and hotel furniture.
Col. Hubbard is very thankful for
the prompt action of the firemen, but
he cannot figure the origin of t he fire,
it js a mystery to him.
The Celebration Should Bj Free.—No
Exorbitant Charges Should
Be Tolerated for Any

NO STATEHOOD IN MctillRE.
Just think of it a minute! Must we
wait for statehood until Bird McGuire
reaches a seat in congress? If he
should accidently be elected, a year
would elapse before he could take his
seat; then six months would elapse
before Bird could get the statehood
bill in, then it would be under con-
sideration for a time; then the con-
gressional election would be around
again; then Bird would tell congress:
"Guess we had better not pass the
statehood bill just now, 1 want to be
re-elected, and like Dennis Flynn, I
desire to go back home and tell the
people that if they want statehood
they must vote for McGuire.—See?"
Bill Cross will be elected to con-
gress and the statehood bill will pass
next winter sure.

The Wave has been informed that
the celebration management have
concluded to charge an admission of
50 cents to witness the bull fight
which we deem au exhorbitant price
and a policy that will revert against
the best interest of the city. It in
understood that about $.1,000 has been
subscribed to the celebration for the
purpose of amusing and pleasing
those who will visit Enid next week.
The committee has something like
$2,200 to their credit at the Bank of
Enid and the sum will be increased
by at least $300 subscription yet un-
collected which is absolutely good.
The expenses, so far as they can be
figured, do not figure up to this
amount, hence, unless it is absolutely
necessary every farmer in Garfield
county and his family should be al-
lowed to see the bull pit performance
clear of cost or nearly so.
To say the least the charges for ad-
mission to the bull fight should be
gauged on the probable attendance
and the probable cost of said exhibi-
tion and no more; at the most it
should not be over 25 cents and if the
performance is interesting thousand.,
of peop'e will wish to see it and ten
cents admission would afford the man
agement a vast amount for expenses
The Wave dislikes the idea of
knocking the arrangements of the
committee, but it desires to call the
attention of the management to the
fact that the city business men can
not afford the displeasure of the at-
tendants of the celebration, more
especially the farmers tributary to
the city. The idea and intention of
a city celebration of any kind is to
show guests that it is inhabited by a
progressive and generous set of peo'
pie who delight in amusing the peo-
ple who support it at the lowest pos'
sible cost to those invited. Of course
the bull fight entertainment
costly affair. One dozen valuable
bulls that have a pugilistic record
must be purchased, besides the
large salaries to be paid the bull
fighters, not to say anything about
the cost of the large bull ring and
amphitheater erectedon Henry Ave.,
but the exact cost of the same in all
that should be exacted from the peo-
ple: it should not be- aye, it must
not be a money making scheme.
The Wave believes that the ad
mission fee should not be over ten
cents. The farmers concluded that
the fair association was a grafting
scheme,in which they were wrong,and
now, for goodness sake don't allow
them to fall into the belief that our
ninth anniversay celebration a graft
ing scheme also.
Every city works for the friend-
ship of the surrounding country, and
the Enid business men desire to give
the people who visit Enid next week
a free celebration as far as the city
program goes. Any extortion is sure
to work against the best commercial
interest of the city.

Base Ball News.
The Enid Maroons, a local indepen
dent team were in Carrier Thursday
afternoon to play the Northwestern
Academy team. The Modern Wood-
man of America were having a cele-
bration and invited our boys out to
play ball. Osburn pitched a fine
game for Enid allowing only one
two scattered hits.
Ramcy caught in great style,
Whiteley on third and Weisinger or
second, played their positions nicely.
Roach, Courtney, Osburn and Weis
inger ran in one score apiece. The Car-
rier boys are still wondering why the)
secured no scores. The umpire was
surely raised in the jacks, for one oi
the Carrier boys said he was founo
chained to a tree eating the branches.
He knew a baseball and a bat, but
nothing else. The Carrier boys think
tbey can defeat our boys at Enid.

TRAVELING MEN ARE FOR CSOSS.
Bill Cross will be the next delegate
to congress from Oklahoma. The
Enterprise reporter heard three
prominent traveling men talking of
he campaign this morning.
While all three of them were re-
rablicans, yet every one declared he
vas for Bill Cross, first, last and all
ime. One of them remarked that
Prank Greer, of the State Capital
was doing more good work for Cross
than any democratic paper in Okla-
homa, by unjustly attacking him and
iccusing him of living in Kansas
' 'ty. "It is an unwritten law among
traveling men" continued the gentle-
men, to register from the city where
the firm they represented is located.
Now I live in Enid, pay taxes there
vote there, yet I always register
from Kansas City, because the house
( represent is located there, they de-
«re that I should do so. Bill c;r0ss is
a bona fide citizen of Oklahoma, and
while I am a republican, I am going
to support him. All the traveling
men are for Cross and he will be
elected. On being asked if he would
object to the reporter using his name
he said: "Well, my house pays me
to sell goods and not to talk politics;

you can do so, but I prefer that you

the Hunter Enterprise says;
From September 15 to the 20th Enid
will celebrate the Strip opening in a
whirlwind of glory. Among the not-
able attractions will be a grand free
street fair, sky-scraping baloon as-
censions and parachute leaps, a con-
gress of Lilliputians in electric won-
derland, a revolving ladder, a high
dive each day, acrobatic and tumbl-
mg feats and a thousand other exclt-
features to please and interest
the people, among which will be a
big political meeting to be addressed
by Hon. Bird McfJuire and Hon. Bill
< 103s and other prominent speakers.
There will be a grand street parade
every day, led by famous bands from
Kansas, Guthrie, Edmond, Enid and
other cities. A grand gun club
shoot will take place on the 17th, to
be followed each day with kindred
sports of an exciting nature. Vou

\al. It will fairly eclipse any former
