stallions and analyze them fo • him-
Mr. kirk tells you tnat last season
was Council Chimes' first season in
thestud. I will ask Mr. Kirk what
Council Chimes was doing the sevtn
years that he was in Michigan? 1
wish to say to the readers of this ar
tide that I saw a colt sired by Ooun-
eilJChimes that was four or five years
old, that they were working in hob-
Jiles last summer at the Detroit track
I was informed by
horsemen that there were several
oolts sired by Council Chimes in and
about Alpena, Michigan.
1 don't know why Mr. Kirk should
dip Into Ash Rose in nis advertise-
ments of his horses unless he expect-
ed that it would be un-noticed by me.
This article is already too lengthy
forme to take up his mis-statements
and mis-representations about the
Air Ship, alias Silver Leaf, I will pay
Vny respects to him in another arti-
1 witih to serve notice upon Mr.
Kirk at this time, that he must sti ck
to the truth in all of his advertise-
ments as relates to the Standard ilred
Horse business or I shall expose bim
I cannot close this article without
drawing some comparison as to the
relative valnea of Ash Rose and
Council Chimes as stock horses.
First, I do not ask the public to
patronize Ash Rose |on account of
the number «f standard performers
Of his sire, Ashland Wilkes, who is
the sire of one hundred in the 2:30
list, and this is a greater number
than Chimes has sired.
Second, nor do I ask you to patron-
ize Ash Rose because ht- belongs to
the tgreatest family of trotUnjj
horses In the world, the Wilkes fam
Third., Neither do I promise tha't
if you breed to Ath Rose you will jet
a fa6t cold, but in the language of
\]r. Kirk, we think as he does.
"That like begets like." A big
horse will sire a big colt.
We otfer you the services of Ash
Rose because of his size, his color,
his individuality, bis breeding, his
disposition and his speed.
What has Mr. Kirk toofferyou in
Council Chimes thai is better than
Ash Rose. Is he larger, better c olor,
better individual, better bred, more
speed? The answer is, No.
What does he claim as his great
drawing card. It mast be the num-
iier of races that he has won
more than Ash Rose. We
admit he has won a greater number
of races, but will you stop to think
that Council Ohdraes has raced as
many years as Ath Rose Isold.
But when it comes to admitting as
Mr. Kirk says I do in his challenge,
thai he is better, more consistent,
gainer and faster tban Ash Bose 1
deny the claim, and am willing to
back my belief.
1 believe Ash Rose the faster horse
^rom the fact, that the second! day
after he entered tfce 2:08 class, that
he drove the Bronco out of the 2:08
class into the 2:07. The first week of
the Lexington meeting he forced
Fantine to take a record of 2:06j. The
Bronco's record of 2:07 and Fanzine's
of 2:lXii are two faster records than
Council Chimes ever made a horse
KutK's Challenge Aoceptvbd
On the 22nd. day of November JM04,
Mr, Kirk issued the following chal-
lenge: The Garfield County Fair As-
sociation offers a purse for a rir.e,
Thanksgiving Day, November the
Twentyfourth. It seems impossible
to get any horse to start against
Council Chimes on even terms. In
order to get a race I will race Council
l^himes against any stallion in
■Oklahoma for the purse offered as
(tefore stated and handicap Council
^Chimes as follows; In the first heat
we will give the other horse the pole
and agree to beat him open day-
light; In the second heat we will give
him twentyfive feet: In the -U'-J
heat fifty feet; in the fourth
aevcntylive feet; In
out of the nine to act as judges. I
claim that Council Chimes is tht
fastest, tamest and best rare horse
If any one questions It, let hiin
bring on his horse and show me.
Signed, F. S. Kirk, Mer
Ash Hose arrived from his Eastern
campaign on or about the first of
November after having been shipped
thousands of miles and racing in thir-
teen hard races, ten of which there
was a beat paced in 2:10 or better,
which is ten faster races than Coun-
cil Chimes ever started in in one
After Ash Rose came home I had
made up my mind not to race him
any more until 190« and so stated
this to many people in this city.
Consequently Ash Ro«e was let up as
rapidly as pr?sible In fact Ash
Tlose was given but two slow miles
one in 2:33, another in 2:23 and these
to road cart is all the track work he
hai had since returning. These are
facts that Mr. J. P. Liston and Mr.
Kirk and others know to be so.
Mr, Kirk's challenge being to any
stallion in ©kiahoma and coming just
two days before he expected a race I
did not know that he wished to race
Ash Rose especially but thought
there may have been some arrange-
ments made with some su.llion that
was in training that is owned in Ok-
lahoma, for I believe there are two
other stallions in Oklahoma that can
beat Council Chimes without handi-
capping the Council. Namely: Oak
Grove of Guthrie and J. C. of Okla-
homa City. Nor would I have believed
that Mr. Kirk would wish to have
taken the advantage of a horse that
had been out of training for a month
that is in the same class that his
herse is in, the 2:08 class. However
after receiving his little pink sheet
which he has sent broad cast all over
this country I see the challenge was
made especially for Ash Rose. These
beiog the facts and the challenge
being indefinite as to the amount of
the purse, 1 now accept the challenge
with the understanding that each of
us deposit a certified check for Five
Hundred Dollars with Frank Letson
°f tfee bank of Enid and thav the
winner take the One Thousand Dol-
lars. And that the American trot-
ting Association rules to govern.

Board of Associated Charities
to be used by them for
the needy poor, and that

p ut the track in condition the first of
July and keep it in condition until
the race comes off which shall be any
good day and good track agreed upon
after the first day of September, 1905.
Provided the Garfield County Fair
Association refuses to do this, I will
race your horse Council Chimes with
Ash Rose at Oklahoma City or Wich-

at 2 o'clock p m, Wilton H. Ryan and
Miss Marie Smith were united in
wedlock at the Metfcedist Episcopal
parsonage, Rev. G, W. Martin officia-
It is a short story, but is the cul-
mination of years of friendship. Miss
Smith was an Illinois lady, Mr. Ryan
having met her at Jacksonville, that
state a number of years ago. She
has been a lesident of Denver, Colo,
for the past few years, and came to
Enid a week ago, because Mr. Ryan's
business cares would not permit him
to make the trip. The bride is a
lady of culture and will be welcomed
in Enid as such,
Mr. Ryan is the manager of the
Sbaeffer Furniture company and
needs no further comment to those
who know him. Mr. and Mrs. Ryan
have taken rooms in the First Na-
tional bank building for a time.
The Wave desires to offer, with
hosts of other friends, s ucere con-
gratulations and to wish for them
every joy and pleasure in their new
relation, and that the adv erse winds
of life may pass them by.

The writer spent several weeks of
this month in Denver, Colorado,
watching the horrible political chic
anery. fraud and outrage against all
law and the direct and positive voice
of an outraged people who are on the
verge of a revolution. The returns
of the November election In Colorado
showed beyond a reasonable doubt
that a great majority of the people
desired the election of Hon. Alva
Adams as governor; he having 11,000
plurality on the face of the return;
having carried every county but two,
and all the large cities. Tbe election
of Adams was not as much a demo-
cratic victory as it was a victory
over the arbitrary ?nd military ad-
ministration of Gov. Peabody and his
main supporters, the corporations,
smelter operators, trine owners and
manufacturers who were using Pea-
body as a willing tool to crush Union
labor organizations at tbe expense of
the tax payers of the state and con-
trary to thec.nstitution of the United
States and the state of Colorado.
Peabody inaugurated a continued
warfare against the striking miners
of Cripple Creek and other points
with the aid of state troops, which
lasted eighteen mohths and cost the
state hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars, to the injury of the commercial
interests of the state and causing a
burdensome tax levy to pay the
enormous cost. Peabody went so far
as to deport hundreds of striking
miners wholly without authority of
either civil or military law. Besides,
the above troubles the state became
a subject of ridicule throughout the
republic and almost stopped immi-
gration to the state entirely. There-
fore the people were determined up-
on the defeat of Peabody and had it
not been for the barefaced frauds and
ballot box stuffing in Denver and
Pueblo, Gov. Adam's majority would
have probablv reached 2.">.000,
In Pueblo over 1,000 fraudulent
naturalization papers were issued to
aliens, who could not speak English
and who had not been In the county
for more than two months to two
years, by republican machine men
and Lired corporation tools. It was
also discovered by a grand jury that
more than one thousand mythical or
fraudulent names had been added to
the registration lists of Pueblo by the
republican county officers under the
management of one Wallpool who has
recently been rewarded with the post
mastership of the city by Roosevelt
against tbe direct wish of eight
tenths of the people. The Pueblo
grand jury found several hundered
indictments against various county
officers and thirty-tw« against Wall-
pool who was arrested by the sheriff
a few hours after he was confirmed
as poet master by the U. S. Senate.

fraud Adams' majority in his home
town would have been at least 3,500
instead of 1,«00.
The legislature of Colorado has
been bought, body and soul, by the
corporations to seat Peabody in his
contest against Adams for tbe gov-
ernorship, but it is now hoped that
there are enough honest republicans,
in conjunction with the democrats,
to prevent the high banded fraud.
The contest is being heard by a pack-
ed committee strictly contrary to
the provisions of the state law in con
test cases, but with the Colorado re-
publican corporation tools, law is not
allowed to interfere with the power
they hold in the fight,
There is much evidence of fraud in
many Denver precincts and the Su
preme court has jailed many demo-
cratic election officers for what it
calls contempt of court after farcical
trials. The evidence goes to show
that the ballot boxes were stuffed
with fraudulent ballots, but whether
the work was done by the democratic
election boards, or the republican
campaign committe in the court house
where the boxes were stored two or
three days without being under guard,
or by the hand writing experts em
ployed by the court to examine the
ballots. However, the republican
Supreme ci urt, of course, declared
the elective judges guilty of the
fraud. The scheme of the corpora-
tion gang is to throwout enough pre-
cincts in Denver and several counties
to allow Peabody to overcome Adams'
majority a few votes.
The people of Colorado are oil the
verg e of State revolution over the
apparent intentions of the legisla-
ture to seat Peabody and If the job
is consummated it will be crushed by
public sentiment, or a resort to arms.

Every two years the territory has
trouble with the Kansas authorities
in regard to the maintenance of the
Oklahoma convicts in tbe Kansas
pen. The last contract expired the
other day and owing to the crowded
conditions of tbe Kansas penal insti-
tutions, the state authorities are not
inclined to renew the contract, not-
withstanding the fact that Kansas
makes meney out of the job and the
tax payer? of the territory pay board-
ing house rates for the keeping of our
convicts. The last quarterly state-
ment presented amounted to $14,329.
The governor of Kansas has agreed
with Gov. Ferguson to use his in-
fluence to have the contract renewed.
If the contract is not renewed the
prisoners will have to be brought
back to the territory and be confined
in the jails of the counties from which
they were sentenced, and, said jails
are mostly make shifts and are al
There is no sensible reason why Ok.

had a penitentiary as there is $400,000
in the public building fund, now being
used by tbe Guthrie oanks at a great
profit to said institutions, when it
should be in use for the benefit of the
tax payers. Four years ago the leg-
islature provided for the building of
a penitentiary, but jealousy, politics,
selllshness and general all around
maneuvers prompted the raising of
enough money in Oklahoma City,
Shawnee and other eastern towns to
persuade the late speculating Gov
Barnes to veto the public building
bill, and, as usual, the people have
suffered the loss of thousands of dol-
lars. Since said public building bill
was murdered by Gov. Barnes, the
territorial treasurer has paid the
State of Kansas 1224,000 for boarding
convicts; enough to build a gcod sized
penitentiary, yet the money is gone
and the territory has nothing, in fee
simple, to show for it.
Oklahoma Is cursed with entirely too
much frenzied politics; entirely too
much town and sectional jealousy;
too many boodllng or grafting states-
men; too much detrimental struggles
for the maintenance of the Capital at
Guthrie, and too much overlooking
of business principles for the sake of
town or personal gain. Through the
excellent hidden work of the Guthrie
congressional lobby the various legis-
latures of the territory have bten
prohibited from providing for a pen-
itentiary, Xor the sake of maintaining
the Capital at Guthrie. They feared
the power of the legislature indeslg-
natlnp n territorial capital. The
present legislature Is tied up n tbe
same manner and the very expensive
penitentiary arrangement o ust he
penal institution. Perhaps, if the
convicts were turned loose and the
present and past managers and ma-
nipulators of territorial affairs were
penned up this trouble would cease
and the tax payers' money saved. It
is a well known fcctthat convicts are
almost self sustaining as they are all
