The Yukon Suu published the
treasurer's balance sheet hist week
and mistaking it for his quarterly re-
port, proceeded to criticise the treas-
urer because bis report did not give
a full detailed account of the receipts
and expenditures.
Ordinarily our young friend who
engineers the destiny of the Suu is
fair and impartial of his criticism of
public ollicials, but in this matter he
did the treasurer either intentionally
or unintentionally an injustice.
We have a copy of the typewritten
report before us, and must say that
it is not only the neatest, but the
most elaborate report of the kind
ever brought to our attention.
We give below the report in full:

Ralph Hobbs, the 10-year-old sou
of R. E. Hobbs, the real estate man,
met with a painful and serious ac-
cident yesterday afternoon about A
o'clock, in which he will lose the
sight of one of his eyes and prob-
ably both of them.
Ralph, in company with a play-
mate, found two loaded shot gun
shells, and wishing to test the pow-
der to see if it was any good they
cut the shells open and placed the
powder in a can and touched a
match to it. The powder exploded
in the faces of the uoys, seriously
burning young Hobbs. His play-
mate escaped injury.
The Passing of Carrie.
Two months ago the name of
Carrie Nation was upon every lip.
Thousands of curious people would
assemble at the very announcement
of her name. The whole popula-
tion of a city would turn out en
masse to hear her rant hysterically,
No Premiums I
It's all in
the quality.
No Premiums!
It sells on
its merit,
and the daily press vied with each
other to see which one could print
the greater number of columns con-
cerning her movements. Yesterday
she went to jail in Wichita without
excitiug as much commotion as usu-
ally attends the landing of a com-
mon drunk in a village bastile. No-
body paid any attention to her com-
ing and nobody seemed %to care
whether she went to jail or stayed
out of jail. The craze has subsided
and the cause she represents, or
thinks she represents, has been sel
back a decade. Spectacular cru-
sades and pulpit pyrotechnics leaves
behind them uo lasting good.

A Compliment,
The grand jury which adjourned
this week at Norman where Judge C.
F. Irwin has been holding court, paid
the judge the following compliment:
We thank his honor, C. F. Irwin, judge
of the second judicial district, for the
uniform courtesy with which we have
been treated by the court, and con-
gratulate the district upon the careful,
expeditious and unbiased manner in
which court matters are managed un-
der his administration.
Signed By The Grand Jurors.
The ast express tiain on the Choc-
taw, Oklahoma & Gulf railroad whuh
left Memphis at 11:40 last night was
held up by three mashed men just this
side of the bridge across the Mississippi
river. It is not known how much booty
the robbers secured, but a dispatch
states that the express messenger and
the porter of the train were injured by
resisting the bandits.
The scene of the hold-up is in the
river bottom .n the midst of a dense
forest. It is a lonely crossing about
four miles from the river. A rumor is
out to the effect that the express mes-
senger and the porter were shot and
dangerously wounded.
