Friday Night Doins
Promoter Edwards Promises It Will
Be the Best Entertainment Yet
Pulled Off—Everybody
Invited. ,
Mr. L. J. Edwards promises that the |
concert and entertainment Friday
night in Citizens' Park, just west ol j
the Transcript office, will be one of!
the best ever given; "worth going j
miles to hear and see." In addition to I
the splendid cornet solos by Lloyd i
Curtis, and music by Prof Holmberg, I
Judge J. B. Dudley and Hon. Ben ]
Williams have been prevailed upon to
make talks, and there'!! be other
features worth while. Additional
lights will be furnished, seats pre-
pared for all the '89-ers, Japanese
lanterns, etc.—everything to make it
pleasant and comfortable.
Lay your plans to be down town
Friday night, and bring the kids with
you. Everything is free, and you can
have a pleasant outing.
Miss Martha Lee Griffin will give
a dainty little dance at the entertain-
ment, and Miss Rutli Newell has con-
sented to give a musical selection.
These will be two features thoroughly
worth while.
RAILROADS PREPARING
All hope of a peaceable solution
of the strike has gone glimmering
and it now seems certain the strike
will begin next Monday morning at
7 a. m. The railroads think so, for an
embargo has been placed on all per-
ishable freight and live stock, agents
being instructed to refuse shipments
unless it can be delivered at destina-
tion by 7 a. m., September 4th.
And, still, railroad stocks on Wall
street are stiff, and considerable deal-
ing in them is reported. Seemsstrange,
if a strike is certain, that prices would
not go off. Maybe it is all a bluff on
both sides.
Make Alorman Hard to Forget

be given in "The Citizens' Park" next Friday evening, Septem-
ber 1st.

There will be other attractions worth coming miles to hear.

pany to solicit subscription for stock I
report continued progress, and eager-
I ness on the part of the people to
participate in this enterprise, as they
realize that this is the first practical
1 method proposed to secure a test well;

j distribute the profits among the many j
| instead of a few men, and they know !
| that the money will be legitimately J
| spent and each stockholder get his or!
J her honest share. Work will com-1
j mence as soon as the first 1000 shares !
j are subscribed and these subscribers
will be given the first chance to get
the second 1000 in proportion to their
subscription to the first, and this
alone is a valuable asset; so that all
who wish to assist in this development
should do so before the first series is
absorbed. The committee expects to
close the list early next week and is
doing its best to distribute the stock
as widely as possible, and thoroughly
appreciates the help of subscribers,
and the many voluntary subscriptions.

"OKLAHOMA STATE CAPITAL."
Will Be the Name of the New Re-
publican Weekly Paper in Okla-
homa City, John Appleby,
Editor and Publisher.
John Appleby, an experienced news-
paper man and Secretary of the Okla-
homa Republican State committee,
writes the Transcript that he will pub-
lish the first number oi; the "Okla-
homa State Capital" on Thursday of
this week, with the intention of mak-
ing it the official organ of the party
in Oklahoma. At present it will be a
weekly, but undoubtedly will soon be
made a daily, for there is an opening
in the capital of the state for a strong
Republican paper.
Mr. Appleby was formerly editor of j
the Hobart Republican, and is a vig- [
orous writer. In addition to his own
work on the paper, he has secured the
services of some of the best political
writers in the state, and everything
possible will be done to make it a
true exponent of Republicanism,
state and nation.
The "Oklahoma State Capital"
ought to be taken by every Republi-
can in Oklahoma. By that means
only can a real paper be built up.
Persons who desire to subscribe can
leave their names and money at the
Transcript office, whose editor is act-
ing as agent for it in this locality. The
price is $1.00 per year.
Bring in your subscriptions and
start out with the first number.
