Thk Cleveland county fair closed
with a low temperature Saturday, but
no one was able to say that it was not
a success. The cold rain Friday night
is generally conceded as harmonizing
Willi the preceding event, viz, the
free homes speech of Dennis. We
have noticed that they are for the
most part accompanied with certain
coldness of feeling. People of this
comity are awake to the issues of the
dav and they are not apt to be deceiv-
ed as to the free homes Question.
Certain Denuisonian advocators would
fain have us believe that Mr. Flynn is
the only man who could have any in-
fluence for free homes, but in fact he
is the only man whose influence would
be zero as compared with that of J. Y.
Callahan. Dennis will receive few
votes in this county.
The El Reno Globe says that, the
Democrats and pops have fused on
Legislative candidates The state-
ment is untrue. The Democrats don't
fuse with the pops on anything, in
Cleveland county.—Slate Democrat.
The above taken from that "hybrid
sheet," the State Deiaocrat, confirms
the rumors so extant iu the county,
that Bixler arid his political backers
are going to vote for Flynn, and other
republicans that they make a coalition
on. We have always said that Bixler
and his political backers were not
democrats, and the above article con-
firms us in that assertion. He did
not need to make the statement that
"democrats don't fuse with the pops
on ail) thing," as it ft known all over
the county, that hi and his political
backers will hot have anything to do
J with those that advocate good demo-1
c'ratfc principles. They want to luse
with republicans. We have no ob-
jections to them being republicans if
they choose to, but we do object to
I that gang deliveVi'n'r the democratic
I party to the republicans.

ler, Untrue to Callahan.

Judge Kjsaton opened court in
Oklahoma City Tuesday of this week.
There are on his court docket 173
United States cases; 102 territorial
cases and 228 civil suits. Clerk Dunn
reappoints Torn Neal assistant deputy,
John Fianing deputy at Norman and
Jatnes II. Neal at Tecumseh.
The republicans are howling lustily
because Callahan says "Free Homes"
is not at iu-'no m this campaign. With
the -'Free llomes'^uestion eliminated
the rolien on gold standard republi
can party has nothing left to stand oti,
and only keep no the agitation on this
point because they are afraid to say
to people of Oklahoma and Cleveland
county, especially, that they favor a
robber's tariff, a gold standard money
system and double statehood foV Ok-
lahoma. To prove that Mr. Callahan
is right, we cite the fact to our read-
ers that all three political parties have
oeclared in favor of "free homes."
When the same plank, on the same
question, iu the same campaign is
contained in the platforms of three
political paaties, how can it be an
issue, Its all republican clap trap.
Let Flynn or some of his represent':!,
tives come down here and tolk double
statehood, protective tariff and the
i;old standard, and they will go off
The New ork World says McKin
lev will have to change his tactics and
from now devote hismself to abusing
the trusts if he expects to he elected
iu November. The only trust McKin
lev is likely to abuse is that reposed
in him by the people of the United
States—if they should prove silly
enough to elect him president.

A KAIit audience greeted the Hon.
II. II "Hagan of Guthrie, on last Sat-
urday'evening to listen to that bril-
liant young orator discuss the political
issues of the day from a democratic
standpoint, but it seems that those
who heard Mr. Hagan were much dis-
apdoiuteu from the fiiet, that Mr.
Hagan did not discuss anything but
silver, whereas there are other vital
issues confronting the people of the
territory. We hope that Mr. Hagan is
not responsible tor his failure to dis
cuss all the issues and to also advo-
cate the election of candidates who

near to every demt ciat, and lo the
