Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
Convention:—NVe. your committee on
resolutions, beg leave to report the fol-
NVe, the republicans of Logan county,
:u delegate convention assembled, here
and now endorse the declaration of
principles as set forth in the platform
«>f the republican party adopted at tin-
last national ••(invention held at
Minneapolis, and the last congressional
convention held at Guthrie, in the
year 1 vl, ami reatUrm our allegiance
to the republican party and its policies
and principles as illustrated by its
achievements in the past, and express
our full confidence in the wisdom of
its policies in the future.
NVe condemn the policies and prin
ciples of tli" Democratic party as be
ing opposed to the best interests « f our
people, and especially as being op
p >sed to the best interests • f the great
army of laboring men throughout the
country. NVe eomdemn the Democratic
party for its vascilating course and for
its incineerity on every question of
pablic interest. NVe condemn its poli
c. on the question of protection to
Ninei ican industries and the wages of
NVe especialy endorse the American
8 .'steiu of protection as enacted in the
atute known as the McKinley law.
W ticli provide a harmonious system of
pr iteetion to the vast and varied inter-
stsof manufacturer, laborer, agr'cu
turist and miner throughout this broad
land, ami congratulate the author°of
that great measure that time has dem-
onstrated the wisdom of its provis
ions, and we favor tin* establishment
of a non-partisan tariff commission in
order that an intelligent rcvi ion of
the tariff schedule may be made from
time to time as the necessity therefor
may be demonstrated.
NVe condemn the legislation of the
democratic party upon the question of
the coinage of silver us tending
establish in this country a single gold
NVe favor such legislation as will se
cure to the business and labor intei
ests of the country all the gold and all
the silver possible, and as much paper
money as can be be kept in circulation
and maintaining the value of ever dol-
NVe denounce the policy of the demo
eratie party toward the Union soldier
the national defender of this gov
eminent at the time of its peril, as tin
patriotic, as mean and niggardly, and
as tending to keep up between the
north and south the sectional issue
and showing that the great body of
the democratic party coining from the
south can not and does not a^reeiate
what these men have done for thii
country and for the cause of humanity.
We denounce Grover Cleveland and
the National administration for fail
ing to recognize the principle of home
rule for the teriitories announced in
the platform of the Democratic party
at its last national administration
and for its senseless and idiotic meth-
ods of opening the uew land to settle
NVe unanimously endorse the record
of the Hon. Dennis T. Flynn, delegate
in congress from this territory, and
here and now tender to him a grateful
a'knowledgement for his services on
behalf of the people of Oklahoma
without regard to section and without
regard to party: and unanimously
place his name before the Republicans
of the territory for re-nomination aud
re-election to the high oflice which he
so honorably fills, believing that his
pa^t s.m vices give promise and assur
anco of greater usefulness in the fn
ture; and the delegates elected at this
convention to the territorial conven
tion at Oklahoma City are hereby in
structed to use all honorable means to
secure his nomination.

SAM SMALL TAKES A HAND
i* Cailn Speaker Crlnp llis Aid and
Tackl«*rt ItUxell on (lie l\iiiKti«her
Washinotox, April 10.— | Special.)
There was an unusual scene before the
postmaster general today. It involved
Speaker Crisp, Sam Small and Iiissell
and the work of getting Wallis ap-
pointed postmaster at King6sher.
Small lias been in the tight since he
arrived aud has concluded that he
would get th man appointed who had
received the vote at the primary held
some time si nee. '1 his being his de-
termination. he enlisted Crisp in the
matter and when they reached the
postmaster general this morning it
very soon appeared that there was go
ing to be some trouble. Hissell stated
that he had discovered that many peo-
ple were interested in the Kingfisher
light who did not live in Kingfisher.
I his touched Small, of Oklahoma City,
aud Speaker Crisp, of the state of
Then Small, who is not to be downed
by a temporary government clerk, ob-
served that he had a right to be inter-
ested in the case, for he had friends
who were there ami asked his help. A
similar reason was assigned by Crisp.
About this time Small gave the post-
master general a touch of high life
about tlie do-nothing plan of his de-
partment in Oklahoma. He also gave
a whack at the sawbuck gang that had
been allowed, in the few cases decided
upon, to dictate appointments. Hissell
very soon was executing a bear dance
around the room, that being about the
limit of his speed, while Sam was just
a little more lively. Crisp got just a
little red in the face as he was once
again reminded of the silver vote in
the house and his attitude at the pie
counter. In due time Crisp and Small
walked out with very little ceremony
and not even wishing Hissell a pleas-
A NEW ONE ON llEEU.
The '•spirituous" Indian anil the an-
imal dubbed "'ntroducer" have a new
field opened to them now. The su-
preme court of the United States, in an
opm ■ n just rendered by Justice
Shiras, has decided that beer is not
spirituous liquor, and does not come
under the statute prohibiting the in-
troduction of spirituous liquors or
wines into the Indian Territory. The
"As far as ponular usage goes, lager
beer as a malt liquor, made by fer-
mentation, is not included in the term
spirituous liquors, the result of distil-
lation," and that the terms of statutes
aud decisions previously referred to
"plainly distinguish malt liquors, the
result of fermentation, from spiritu-
ous liquors, the result of distillation."
Hut this is not all that's given us in
the opinion. Justice Shiras goes into
the classics and gives us some history
as to the origin of beer and its bear-
ing o' the question under review. We
quote the following curious facts from
this K,tave judicial paper:
"li, then, lager beer is not reasona
bly within the terms of the statute, as
a spirituous liquor, can it be said to be
included in the term wines? Tacit.: s
does, indeed, in his account of the < t: -
toms of the ancient Germans, speak of
their using a liquor made from barley.
4corruptus, in quendam simili tudem-m
vini,' 'fermented into a kind of re
semblance to wine,' This is one of the
earlie.-t references we have to malt
liquor. That it was potent we learn
from the same author, who tells us
that the German warriors would de-
liberate upon and form their designs
when sober, and then get drunk, pre-
sumably on this barley wine, and carry
their projects into effect. But if beer
is like wine in its appearance and ef-
fects. it is plainly not wine, either in
its popular or technical meaning."
Now the learned justice does not say
that in this practice of our Teutonic
h* i's we may find the origin of
the adage, "Dutch courage," as well
as the nature of beer itself, yet the ex-
ample ef deciding when sober could be
followed even yet with great advan-
tage. The law is said to be a dry
study, but there are oases in it some-
times—and liberty to get around ob-
stacles to a good time—even for In-
fetal* National Bank, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The taking of depositions in the fa-
mous suit of the United States vs.
the state of Texas, involving the own-
ership aud title to the land between
the north and south forks of the river,
known as Greer county, was concluded
with the deposition of Judge Stilwell
at HI Reno last Friday. The suit in-
volves V 00,000 acres of land, and
about $.">,000,000 worth of taxable
property. When the supreme court
decides it, the 20,oo<) inhabitants of
tireer county will heave a sigh of re-
lief. They will then know whether
they belong to the "Lone Star" stale
or to the "Land of the Fair (iod." Ci
