TMEnAN AND THE DOLLAR.
In the days of Washington, Jefferson and JacKson, even un
to Lincoln, Greely and Sumner, was the honor age of the sil-
ver republic. Then man was held above the dollar. Then it
was a patriot said to England: "As poor as I am, England
has not money enough to buy me." Another said: "America
has thousands for defense, but not one cent for tribute. And
English gold failed to purchase liberty for Andre, but it is
different now. The dollar is placed above the man in this gol-
den monarchy. It is always so when a people become
prosperous. It was so when the Roman E a g I e s
were carried into Jerusalem it was so; whtn Christ drove the
gamblers from his His Father's house of prayer it was so;
when Iscariot betrayed the Sop of Man for thirty pieces of
silver it was so; when I'ilate biased his judgement in the trial
of the Son of God it was so; when the Roman Magistracy en-
slaved the people it was so; in the days of the Grachii it
vvas so; when Prance was plunged into a bloody revolution
it was so in the nineties when the supreme court of the United
States ruled the income-tax unconstitutional And it was
the same spirit that fathered the late Humphrey rulings and
good democrats and honest republicans condemned the U. S.
supreme court in the nineties and Roosevelt criticises the
Humprey decision lately on trusts, and the demjcratie plat-
form of 1896 is being vindicated.

KENTUCK!ANS CONVENT ION.
Last Saturday we, according to previous arrangements and
published call through county press, attended the convention
of Kentueiiians in Chandler and the meeting
of the railroad officials to arrange for rates to visit Louisville
during the "home coming" week of Kentuckians, June llth to
17th inclusive, and the understanding reached Was: that the
Lincoln county Kentuckians combine with other Kentuckians
and to send delegates to the convention to meet on the 16th of
May, to maKe final arrangements for a departure of visitors
to Louisville on the 11th of June from Oklahoma City.
We were more than pleased with our Chandler visit. We
| were made a welcome guest by the railroad officials (mostly
| the Frisco) at their table at the dining halls in the St.
; Cloud Hotel, and a seat in the official car and was com-
I pelled to turn down a warm entertainment at Oklahoma City

a satisfactory business, has a very good stock and a good

□ Tore him to pieces. In Frisco, a poor, hysterical woman,
not knowing what she was doing or saying nor anything about
military rules, crossed the dead line and a brutal soldier
stabbed her with his bayonet and she fell dead, whereupon a
half hundred men surrounded him, tooK his gun from him
and literally tore him to pieces, notwithstanding his pleadings
and piteous begging.
