The entire republican campaign in
the territory is misleading, and
treacherous, besides it is one mam-
moth blackmailing scheme. Their
orators and press dwell louaJv
and lengthily on the division of the
school money of Oklahoma with the
Indian Territory and the enormous
expense Oklahoma will be in provid-
ing roads for the I. T. people. Both
are lies, or wholly theoretical. The
republican party is in full "control of
the federal government and if they
should be guilty of allowing such an
inequality, as they picture, in case of
single statehood, they alone would
be responsible for it.
As far a- the public road theory
they advance as a sweet morsel is
concerned, it is not only a rough
edged campaign lie but supremely
rediculous and the Wavk can prove
Each county in each and every
state of the American Union must
bear its own public road expenses.
Is Grant county paying any of the
public road expense* of Garfield
county? Certainly not. The new
counties that will be formed out of
the I. T. would have to bear the ex-
expense of establishing and main
taiuing roads through said county.
It seems to the Wave that any school
boy of ordinary intelligence should
know these facts.
The republican press of this city
j assisted by Birdie's unimportant and
wholly uninfluential Echo has indulged
in many longscreeds charging Sheriff
Porter of boodling the county in the
way of collecting a salary in excess

THE ENID AND ANADARKO.
Some irresponsible person is cir-
cnlating the report through the
county that C. V. Porter only hunts
up the criminals where there is a re-
ward offered. This report is absolute-
ly false. Hardly a horse, wagon or
harness that ha been stolen in this
county but Mr. Porter, by his vigil-
ance, has captured the thief. People
in this county who have lost property
know this, and in almost every case
have offered rewards for the capture
of the thief.
We assert that in every instance
he has positively refused to take or
accept the reward, except iti one
single instance; that was where Mr.
Charles Sherer had lost some pro-
perty and offered a reward, which
was paid by Mr. Shrrer.
Now gentleman be fair. If Mr.
Porter has accepted any reward

for recovering stolen property, name

miles north of here. One of the rob-
bers stepped out from behind a bush
and gaabbed both horses by the

stepped up on either side of the

The Anthracite coal miners, of
Pennsylvania, to the numb,er of 350,-
000, who have been out on a strike for
the last four months, resumed work
today having accepted the proposi-
tion of President Roosevelt to place
the matter between the miners and
| the operators before a board of se-
ven commissioners whom the president
had already appointed. 'Ihe com-
mission has no legal power, but both
sides of the controversy have agreed
to abide by its decision. It is a fact,
now well known throughout the coun-
■ try that the anthracite coal miners,
j who labor deep down in the earth
have only been receiving $7.20 per
week for their labor, which is not
enough to keep the body and soul of a
big family together, therefore the
demand of the miners for more wages
is just, and no doubt the disinterested
humane boarcl of arbitration will do
justice to the miners. We all know
and God knows anthracite coal brings
an enormous price. The operators
have no right to make it all. The

their lives are entitled to enongh to

Last night about 8:00 o'clock Mr.
James Steen, a well known attorney,
pnrchased some groceries at Hodg-
den's grocery store on East Broad-
way and started for his home on the
East Hill. Just as te passed the east
corner of the llackett blacksmith
shop, or the corner of Broadway and
West Railroal Avenue, he was struck
a heavy blow on the right side of the
head and again in the stomach and
back. Tbe blows did not knock Mr.
Steen down, but the head lick dazed
him, and he staggereJ from the side-
walk to the middle of the street yell-
ing "murder" so loudly that his as-
sailants retreated. Mr. Steen did not
see the men before the attack, not a
word was spoken by him or his as-ail-
ants, but after the blows were struck
Mr. Steen noticed two men. One was
a middle aged man, who ran east and
who stumbled and fell i , crossing the
Rock Island track. The other one
: jerked away going south on Railroad
; avenue. The blow on the head so
dazed Steen that he could not identify
j the brutes.
Mr. Cook who clerks for Hodgdens
heard Mr. Steen's outcrys and he
! hurried to his assistance, but not in
time to catch a glimpse of the
assaients. From the evidence, in this
brutal assault of one our most peace-
I able citizens, the Wave is lead to be
I lieve that the work was done by sec-
ret enemies of Steen to either kill
him or do him great bodily harm.
1 hieves and hold ups never resort to
^ violence until their victim refuses to
| obey orders. Mr. Steen's wound on
the head was dressed by Dr. Kelso.
| It consists of a scalp wound about
, three inches long about two inches
above the ear. The skull was not
j cracked, and no serious complication
is liable to set in from concussion, as
the victim has been about all day
Mr. Steen says the whole trouble is a
mystery to him as he has no idea why
anybody should strike hiin thus. Of
course, the city and county officers
have been on the alert, but no arrests
have been made.
