THK PHOLIPIC8 OK THE TWO PHILLIPS.
That i a little as the Republicans would have it,
they could not have ordered it better—this epistolary
exchange of courtesies between the two Knight Er-
rands of the Democratic party, Governor Haskell and
Attorney General West. Each hands the other hit
card, Baying: There, 'Caitiff! thou are no gentleman!
But, as in modern allairs of honor, they but cratch
the skin with their rapiers, and do not send to the heart
the fatal steel.
The correspondence of the last few days over the
Investigation of the Columbia Bank failure, of Oklahoma
City, is too voluminous for a weekly paper and the
State Register cannot print it all—it would Oil some
ten or fifteen pages that the dally papers have printed
from day to day. It is doubtful if the reader has been
able to winnow an opinion from the chaff. But as the
governor says the Attorney General is wrong and the
Attorney General says the Governor is wrong—the
Public is willing to agree that both are wrong.
As far as the Public Is concerned. It condemns the
methods of the bank officials that produced the failure
and it hopes for the punishment of those guilty of il-
legal interest In the bank. But as to the wisdom of
when the prosecution shall be begun, so as to conserve
justice and yet not entail further financial disasters
whose burdens shall fall upon the citizens of the state
at large, the Public cannot judge, as it is not in a posi-
tion to know the true insides of the condition of the
securities that shall finally pay out the loss of the
However, if the Governor and the Attorney General
desire to make the Public a court of last resort and
submit their respective sides to it, the Republican
party is willing to act as special counsel for either
or both of them, and see that they get justice. Still,
in view of the fact of two more bank failures, seeming-
ly in sympathy with the Columbia's gigantic dissaster,
it Is doubtful If even this would be wisdom.
thusiaszn among voters.
That: "The old county convention was a sort of a
family reunion cf the Republicans of a county. It fos-
tered a stronger fellowship."
It brought together delegates of the organization
faction and anti-organization faction, the latter unor-
ganized. And exposed them, in their small number to
easy control of any clique of men who had special in-
terests to work for.
( aucuses would be held in the different precincts,
ar.i little friendly rivalries would spring up that would
enthuse the boys."
A few men in each township would make it worth
their while to come out. and the rank and file, discour-
aged by former experiences and knowing it made lit-
tle difference who were sent as delegates to the countv

In the primaries every man that goes to the polls
and casts his ballot for a nominee of the party, knows
that his rote counts.
The caucus and convention idea is an assumption
that the common voter is smart enough to vote for a
smart man who is smart enough to know who is
smart enough to serve the people, but he is not smart
enough himself to know whom he wants nominated and
elected to public office.
It is an assumption that the political fixer reads
CIVIL SERVICE KOR TEACHERS
In its ultimate results it is doubtful if civil service
in Federal departments will prove more beneficial
than injurious. In the end it will breed an official
class that will succeed each other by a sort of inheri-
tance. But it seems to be a settled policy.
What is thet wise thing to do in the proposed plan
to apply civil service to the teachers of Oklahoma? The
State Register is inclined await the decision of the
teachers themselves at their coming state convention.
The State Register is for greater recognition of the
• teachers profession by whatever method that can be
brought about, but doesoiot desire to produce a condi-
tion that \Vould mitigate against its freedom, in a mis-
taken attempt to better it.
Under a popular government flexibility of oppor-
tunity for employment and promotion on individual
merit is a greater safety than a tight bureau system
under control of a few men. But, lets hear from the
teachers what they think is best for them and forl^r '
cation, for in the end the welfare of both tg the same"
THE TALE OK TWO ( ITIES
When you think how little disturbance and law vio-
lation of any character is going on in Guthrie compar-
ed to Oklahoma City, It is no wonder that the recent
trouble incident to an Oklahoma City dispensary en-
forcement officer Eticking his nose into Guthrie's af-
fairs should be so fearfully exagerated. Knowing thai
Guthrie people think it a little impertinent, to say the
least, that Oklahoma City spies should leave their own
awful crime-infested town and come to disturb a few
fly fspects upon a city that has less crime thaif>iiy city
of its size in the states, it is a wonder that men from else-
where than Oklahoma City are not sent here, if out-
siders must interfere.
It is as much a piece of wisdom that law be en-
forced with as little friction as it is that law be obeyed

Which Is not true.

at the next election, it must go direct to the voter and
lay its candidates and its policies before him and
!£m" !PP.r°Val- In this way the Individual respon-
sibility of the voter will be aroused and he will re-
spond with enthusiasm.
Party organization is all right to carry the mess-
age to the voters, but not to chose candidates for them
and then ask them to come up to the trough and cast
their ballots for them.
A POINTER TO EDITORS
On another page is reprinted an address by Chas.
Sessions, for years connected with the Kansas City
papers, and now the Topeka correspondent of the
Journal, made before the Southwest Kansas Press As-
sociation, which especially fits the newspapers of Ok-
lahoma in the coming campaign. Mr. Sessions was on
the ground and wrote up the birth of Oklahoma in
1889, and many of the great conventions for statehood,
and can be said to be of Oklahoma as well as of any-
where else. He says in that article, "It is admitted by
all political leaders that under existing laws and condi-
tions the country papers are in a position to 'rule the
political roost,' but the leaders say there is no danger
of that because the editors can never get together.
They love to fight each other too well. Politically, I
mean. Well, why not exert the power they say you
have? Properly organized the Republican country edi-
tors could run the Republican politics and the Demo-
cratic editors the Democratic politics of the state. They
could play the leading violin all the time. I have just
enough curiosity in my make-up to want to see you try
It some time."
In the present state campaign there is a difference
of opinion between the Federal patronage class of poli-
ticians and the newspapers. These politicians, who
were not for Taft for President are now attempting to
make this state line-up with the men in Congress who
are trying to defeat the President in carrying out the
promises of the Republican national platform and his
own supplementary promises to the people, while the
Republican newspapers of Oklahoma are with Presi-
dent Taft in his fight to carry out the Roosevelt policies.
Now, are the Republican newspapers of Oklahoma
going to stick to their own honest opinions and sup-
port the President with the same spirit they stood up
# for his nomination as against Fairbanks or Cannon, or
are they going to do the bidding of those who were
for Fairbanks and Cannon for President but who now
claim to be the friends of the President, while still
supporting the Interests through Aldrlch and Cannon?
If Oklahoma Republican papers turn down the stand-
patters and stick to their own progressive ideas they
can carry this state Republican; if they allow the stand-
patters—whom all the people repudiate—to dominate
the policy of the party; it is doubtful, in spite of the
rotten rule of the Democratic party.
This opportunity of the newspapers is a great one.
Selfishness on their part alone should make them stick
to the principles the people believe in then to follow
the politicians In schemes beneficial but to them
There are more offices in one single department under
the governor than all the Federal patronage in the
state. And then think of the benefit to the country
newspaper in his locality as well as the state go Re-
publican? It will be the Egyptian story of the seven
lean kine and seven fat klne of the Bible making the fat
years follow the lean ones.
Fellow newspaper men, let's step into "our own,"
that has been awaiting us so long, and be of them who
give out 'larges' to vassals than the poor beggars fight-
ing with the dogs for the crumbs that fall from the
ostentatious, patronizing, political pie prestidigitators
who bask In affiuence, and strut In rich raiment, and
will not even so bemien themselves as to let us kiss
the hem of their garments.
COOK ANO HISTORY.
There are the Judas Iscariots and Benedict Arnolds
of history—the traitors to personal faith ar.l patriot-
ism to country, but not among the heroes of world-
discoverers, from Jason to Columbus. Is there one who
stands as a positive fraud, though wrong credits have
been given by history.
^ hat will Cook do the balance of his years In order
to be contented if he Is positively proven to have com-
mitted a deliberate imposition upon the faith of his fel-
low men? It would seem for a man to do such a thing,
he must have calculated upon an immediate and his-
toric future. It is too momentous an act to do for just
the ordinary greed or notoriety. He must have thought
of these things those long Artie nights, in the eternal
solitudes. He must have known that the thing that
had never been done before would produce tremen-
dous consequences in the world's sentiment.
It looks like not even suicide can save Dr. Cook from
ignominy of history. Will he go down in future stor-
ies of the world as the conspicuous traitor to the /aith
of humanity? It seems so. Everytime a further'dis-
covery of the North Pole is mentioned-as the human
family gets nearer the apex of the earth in habitation-
his name will be on the lips of the children of each
rising generation as the man who lied to the whole
Faith is so strong, and such an act of suicidal itfe-
ception seems so out of reason, that it is hoped some
halucination will still intervene to save Dr. Cook from
such dire fate as awaits him and his.
our citizenship, and that it may reach
you through some of our representa-
tives at Washington, who will be
pleased to act in the premises.
| I see, Mr. President, by your recent
message to Congress, that you advise
charging higher rates on second class
mail matter, to meet the deficiency
in the postal department, that now ex-
ists. Now, while the Express Com-
pares are earning immense dividends
on watered stock and are hauling
mailable matter for one cent per
pound and paying the railroad com-
pares only one-half a cent per pound,
I suggest that this rate, fixed by the
railroad companies to the express
companies, be Insisted upon by the
government for second class matter
instead of upholding this unjust dis-
crimination. if the government's
as.ents will pay the railroad compan-
ies nine cents per poun.1 for hauling
mail matter that the same companies
charge only one-half cent to the ex-
press companies, 1 want to say such
gross discriminations manifest a total
A TRIAL FOR BALLIN'GER
Mr. Taft ban Yielded to Demands for
Washington, Dec. 20.—There is to be
a public investigation of the Interior
Department and the administration of
Secretar Ballinger. This afternoon
Mr. Ballinger served on the President
virtually an ultimatum to the effect
that such an investigation was the
price of his remaining in the Cabinet
He made it clear to the President
•hat he was no longer willing to sit
silent in his office and wait for the
thing to "blow ~ver."
Mr. Taft, it i ssaid, reluctantly ad-
mitted the disappointment of his hope
that the country at large would ac-
cept as final his own vindication of
Mr. Ballinger in his dismissal of the
charges brought before him against
the Secretary of the Interior by L P
Glavis, formerly special agent of the
Republican Leaders want an Inquiry.
Mr. Ballinger's attitude in this mat-
ter has the support of leading republi-,<
cans in both branches of Congress.
They feel that, entirely apart from tbs
merits of the controversy Itself a
controversy of this character must
poison the whole system of the party
in power. These leaders, determine* ■
that an inquiry is necessary, have not
hesitated to go to the White House
and impress their views upon Mr.
Taft. Conferences of a confidential
character has been had at various
times In the last few days. They cul-
disr'gard of fa r dealing toward the!any re'.ief' where it appears that the ni'nated today when Secretary Bal-

Mr. President, while this complaint
brings to light the gross discrimina-

not be considered wandering too far
from the subject to say the people of
Oklahoma are now confronted with a
condition where the railway compan-
ies are proceeding in the Federal
Court to enjoin the officers of this
utate from enforcing our laws on lo-
cal traffic because unrenumerative to
them while on the interstate traffic
they are charging excessive rates.
it is a familiar rule of courts: "He
who seeks equity, must do equity."
He who invokes the law's aid must
observe the law's requirements."
Now, Mr. President, we want the
Federal Judiciary to apply the law in
rate cases where the railway com-
panies seek to enjoin the state officers
in enforcing the law by denying them
tion by enforcing reasonable rates and
prescribing penalties for any viola-
, tion thereof.

PRIMARIES AND CONVENTION'S
How strong Is habit. That Is the reason "I>eave
well enough alone," so often prevails when greater
justice could just as easily prevail.
The Oklahoma City Times is "inclined", to favor
"that the Republicans of the state should hold a state
convention, nominate a full state ticket, and go out In
the primaries and see that the same are selected
there," It gives as Its reason for this conclusion that:
"Primaries kill enthusiasm in parties."

WILLIAM WATSON'S MADNESS.
Twixt madness and reason( in a poet) a thin parti-
tion lies, said Dryden; or something like it. The dizzy
height of intellectual vision Is dangerous. How near
the Charnel House is the Palace of Pleasure. In how
close proximity are Heaven and Hell. In the loftiest
souls is reason easiest dethroned.
William Watson, now that the old order of English
singers is gone, easily the foremost poet of England,
has recently fallen upon evil times. In an instant, be-
cause of the poem, "Woman With A Serpent's Tongue "
he has descended from his high estate from praise to
execration. His act too seems Inexplicable except upon
the excuse of madness. How could a poet of beauty
else pick two women and single them out for his
shafts of malice.
It seems that Watson was In want for many years
in his struggle with his genius, and when Tennyson
died, a supreme effort to pay him adequate tribute in
a poem brought so sudden fame and financial recog-
nition from the government that it unbalanced him,
and he was sent for a time to a sanitarium. His broth-
er believes he is Irrational now.
But his present cannot dim his past as it will be
remembered In the future.
The poem "Lacrimae Musarum" that he wrote on
Tennyson's death, follows:
T.ow, like another's, lies the laureled head;
The life that seemed a perfect song is o'er;
Carry the last great hard to his last bed.
Land that he loved, thy noblest voice is mute.
Land that he loved, that loved him! nevermore
Meadow of thine, smooth lawn, or wild sea-shore.
Gardens of odorous bloom and tremulous fruit,
Or woodlands old, like Druid couches spread.
The master's feet shall tread.
Death's little rift hath rent the faultless lute:
The singer of undying songs is dead.
No more, O never now,
Lord of the lofty and the tranquil brow.
Shall men behold those wizard locks where time
Let fall no wintry rime.
Once, in his youth obscure,
The weaver of this verse, that shall endure
By splendor of Its theme which cannot die,
Beheld thee eye to eye.
And touched through thee the hand
Of every hero of thy race divine,
Ev'n to the sire of all the laureled line,
The sightless wanderer on the Ionian strand.
Tea, 1 beheld thee, and behold thee yet;
Thou hast forgotten, but can I forget?
Are not thy words all goldenly impressed
On memory's palimpset?
I hear the utterance of thy sovereign tongue,
I tread the flopr thy hallowing feet have trod;
I sf-e the hands of a nation's lyre that strung,
The eyes that looked through life and gazed on God.
