CHANDLER, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 1898.

The following is a gem which deserves to be
memorized by every pupil in Lincoln county
schools, and we reprint it, hoping it may tind a
place in the exercises our schools will hold on
THH LAW OF VICARIOUS SACRIFICE.
BV HENRY B. HIBBEN, CHAPLAIN U. S. NAVY.
Twas in a beating, blinding rain,
The chilly wintry air,
As o'er the steel clad track our train
Swept o'er the Deleware.
With mind entranced as if in'a dream
I looked out on the night,
And on the stream, mid lightning's gleam,
I saw a wondrous sight.
Twas but a glimpse, and the train rolled on
O'er plain and rolling hill,
Hut thro' the night till morning dawn
The vision lingered still.
The river, as hi days of yore,
Seemed militant again-
All covered o'er from shore to shore
With regiments of men.
Here some their lines essayed to form,
Here some were crossing o'er,
And some stood facing wind and storm
Upon the farther shore.
When all had crossed my heart beat warm,
As, tiling one bjrone,
I saw them each salute a form
1 knew was Washington.
O brave and gallant men of old,
Who trod the thorny way,
Endured the heat and winter's cold
To bring a brighter day!
Mid blinding snow and stinging sleet,
That shut out moon and star,
Ye crossed the river with frozen feet,
We crossed in palace car!
How strange that ye should grasp the sword
At Bunker's bloody steep,
And freeze at Trenton's icy ford,
While we the fruit should reap!
That ye should sow in blood and tears,
Yet by decree of fate,
For us in long after years
The seed should germinate.
Tis Nature's law; wehave no joy
But comes from other's pain;
In death of self, the soul's alloy.
In mortal life we gain.
Mid blinding show and stinging sleet,
That shut out moon and star.
Ye crossed the river with frozen feet,
We crossed in palace car.
The party of isms has an-
nounced that Bryanism and bi-
metallism will be the issues in
the coming campaign.
No, gentle readers, the Okla-
homa judges were not appointed
this week. But they will be,
sure, next'week—we don't think.
It is amusing to hear the same
democrats who yelled them solves
hoarse over Croker's victory last
fall now roasting "Boss" Hanna.
Strange faces on the street
and roads bear witness to the
fact that many newcomers are
seeking homes in the best coun-
ty in Oklahoma. Our crops are
such as have been heard of afar.
The notorious murderer, Du-
rant, is again sentenced, to die to-
day. If he is not hanged most
of his countrymen will always
think he ought to have been.
Has the Mexican • populace
ceased to shout for Bryan or is
this silence due to the fact that
the boy ox*ator is trying to make
the conditions in Mexico agree
with his theories?
If you believe that Callahan
can do anything toward accomp-
lishing free homes write to your
old congressmen and senators.
Perhaps they can be convinced
that Oklahoma is on the repen-
tant seat and wouldn't vote
against herself if she had it to do
Plagiarism in high places uses
peace as its propeller.
Mr. Croker is now
in Greater New York.
Wanted—an unbroken, un-
breakable New Year's resolution.
Congress has had its holiday
recess and is again worrying
Lincoln county should speak
out plainly at the county conven-
Ahout tomorrow the campaign
for '98 will begin to simmer.
By June it will be boiling over.

It begins to seem as if Beid-
ler, of Oklahoma City is not to
be confirmed as postmaster.
We know who ought to be con-
firmed for that position—and so
do the patrons of that office and
so does the republican party of
Oklahoma and so do the referees,
if they are onto their job. The
man's name is E. E. Brown. He
has done work that entitles him
to this recognition and it will be
a mistake if he does not receive

Soon it will be the season

Everyone with an hour's time
daily on his hands should see the

the Cosmopolitian University.
A liberal education, in any
course you may choose, may be
had with free tuition. Every age

tage of this oifer and bo improv-

The promoters of the Sapulpa

Things are in a great mess in
the Ohio legislature, both houses
being controlled by the anti-
j Hanna factions, composed of
democrats and bolting republi-
cans. The joint balloting for
senator begins next Wednesday.
Gov. Bushnell is understood to
be the candidate of the Hanna
opposition. While an able anm

circumstances be satisfactory to
his party, Gov. Bushnell makes
a grave political mistake in al-

The editor of the Ponca City
Courier, E. W. Hoyt, is the man

business interests and if it will

he is receiving.

The Chandler News last
week under the head "Statehood
Studies" in an able manner ur-
ges moderation at the hand of
the statehood convention. The
impracticability of securing
double statehood is clearly point-
ed out. It is claimed that no
congress will ever concede to the
country included in the bounds
of Oklahoma and Indian terri-
tory twice as many senators as
Kansas or Texas. It is further
contended that an attempt to get
statehood for Oklahoma upon
conditions permitting the Indian
territory to become a part of
such state on such terms as con-
sliall provide would effectually
shut out the Indian territory as
that territory would never con-
sent to become a part of the state
of Oklahoma after the capitoland
state institutions had all been
permanently located in Oklaho-
ma. The argument produced is
certainly deserving of careful
consideration.—El Reno News.
