Ki. Hkxo, 0. T., May 23.—'Two men
up posed to be members of the Dalton
ang of train robbers passed through
Kl Keno yesterday traveling eastward.
The sheriff telegraphed to the little
town of Yukon to intercept and ar-
rest them. A posse was quickly or-
ani/.ed, and when the train robbers
in ad e their appearance they were at-
tacked. The defense was quite as hot
as the attack ami a running fight en-
sued. Deputy Sheriff Farris, a member
of the last legislature, was shot in
the groin. The bullet passed entire
through him. lie is not expected to
live. An old man named Nelson was
shot in the forehead, but not danger-
ously. A number of other persons
were wounded more or less severely
during the skirmish, among them an
officer named Snyder, who was shot in
the face aud will die.
one of the robbers was snot off his
horse and captured, but resisted to
the last, and several of his captors
bears cuts and bruises on the head
where he welted them with his six
shooter. The other robber escaped,
ut is supposed to have been hit two
>r three times, one bullet taking away
a portion of his hat. It is not known
ho he is. The one captured is not
known here. The robber who escaped
is at this time being followed by a
party of armed men and another battle
likely to occur a* any time. The
sheriff aud a posse of deputy marshals
left this ciiy t« join the pursuers.
The chase after the escaped bandit
was most exciting, bi t the outlaw's
horse becoming fagged, one of the
posse made a circle, getting in ahead
f the fleeing man, who opened tire on
him. lie dismounted and ran into the
brush. None of the posse dared to
nture after the man, who remains
in hiding in the timber. Pursuit will
be continued tomorrow.

drunk and the petition was coarsely i
refused. The subject said he wanted
to take an appeal. 11 What!" said
tho l.i ig, ''a p. al from the great
king of Muc *don; and to whom?" *'l
desire to appeal," suit! the subject,
•'from Phillip drunk to Phillip sober!"
This is the kind of an appeal the
people will take this fall. The people,
two years ago. had been overfed, their
livers were out of whack from long
republican prosperity, their minds
were beclouded and they went wrong.
They heard the democratic orators
tell how the country was going lick-
ety-brindle to hades: how business
was stagnant: how honest labor was
ragged and hungry: how Dives had
his cruel heel on the prostrate neck of
Lazarus; how the farmer was strug
gling under the robber tariff and giv-
ing away his products: how the
bloated manufacturer was frying the
fat out of the under-paid, over-worked
laborer—and as all these terrible con-
ditions were depicted old men dreamed
dreams and young men saw visions
They didn't know the orators were
speaking in a future tense. The de-
lirium of indigestion has gone off with
the erstwhile full larder, and the peo
pie realize that "coming events" were
only "casting their shadows before;
that it was the democratic future the
orators described. The people, as the
boys say, "are onto the racket," and
again want a change.
A petition with its boots on will go
to the polls in November and kick
from power every democrat it can
get a chance at. Half the democrats
in the country will help the republi-
ans tnakc a good job of it. As a detn-
•crat remarked the other day:
"We have been waiting to gel con-
rol of this government for thirty
ears, ami now that we have had it for
a year and a half, we'll give it up to
you republicans without money and
without price, for it's too big a con-
tract for th - democratic party!"
The country needs republican vic-
tory. The people, as they view dem-
ocracy gorged anil helpless, cowaadly
and supine, on the field of its recent
triumph, reflect fondly over the his-
tory of the magnificent deeds of repub
licanism. They know the republican
party alone can restore the country
from the dismal blight cast by the
upas tree of democratic supremacy.
The republican party is as necessary
to national safety in defeat as in vic-
tory. It is today the bulwark of the
nation, the embodiment of the most
xalted patriotism, the best manhood
in this splendid nation.
successful until it shows an inclina-
tion to do better by its newspapers
than it has been doing. We have '
heard men who claim to be leaders in
the democratic party state on the
streets of this city that the party
would be better off without any news-
papers. The republicans never fail to
recognize and ..protect their newspa-
pers, and consequently the best and
strongest newspapers in the territory
are advocating republican doctrine
This is one reason why the republican
party is united in the territory and in
shape to make a hard and bitter fight
for supremacy in the coming election.
The democratic party, especially in
this county, is not in shape to meet
the enemy with any hope of success.

A dispatch from Oklahoma tells of
the welcome giveu Hon. Dennis Flyun
by his constituents of Guthrie, on
which occasion processions, brass
bands, and speeches by the mayor and
others of note filled the occasion with
success. A dozen years ago the Okla-
homa congressman made hisentry into
Kansas. It was no triumphal proces-
sion, with music and bauuers, such as
met him on Saturday. No gorgeously
dressed drum major cast his gilded
staff on high, nor did the man with
the slide trombone swiftly pump notes
of melody into the ambient air. The
procession then was au ox team, a
farm wagon loaded with a Washington
hand press and three fonts
of type, and the future congress-
man from Oklahoma The pro-
cession stuck in the quicksands
of the Medicine river. On that occa-
sion, also, speeches were made by the
present statesman from Oklahoma, but
they didn't begin with any words
about "Friends and fellow citizens."
They were directed in particular to
the ox team, with a large number of
extra remarks thrown off into space.
They were orthodox in character, and
not according to the revised versior.
A slight odor of sulphur hung over
the rippling waters of the Medicine
and. as the wagon slowly sank in tte
sand, a purple haze seemed to ere y
over the face of the moon. Auufl
when Dennis finally got out of the
river, he set up his press in a frame
shanty, whb'h was so open that a
Tex is steer strolled in through a crack
in the door, and looked over Dennis'
shoulder while he set up an article on
how the magic hand of progress had
replaced the rude wigwam of the sav-
age with the palatial edifices of a
proud civilization. Truly times have
changed with Denn's, and the foot of
the jack rabbit is emblazoned upon
