Last Tuesday the United States
attorney dismissed the cases pend-
ing against E. V. Debs. Debs is out
of court now and the men who were
instrumental in having him in court
see what fools they were.
M. I.. Bixler is now editor of local
page of State Democrat (locals
mostly patent medicine) and " Tax-
payer" has monopolized the editor-
ial page (chiefly devoted to further-
ing his county attorney boom).
"Taxpayer" thinke he hears
swarm of bumble bees buzzing
around liis head calling upon him to
arise and shake himself and run for
county attorney on the democratic
ticket. He will discover next fall
that they were only gnats.
Reed's republican congress refus
ed to pass the Senate Cuban Reso-
lution for the reason Reed feared
that it would be bad republican pol-
itics. The republicans feared that
Cleveland would sign the resolution
and reap the credit. Making repub-
lican politics seems to be the chief
avocation of the present republican
congress. Will the people of this
before next No-
give these tin horn pol-
iticians an opportunity to earn a
livelihood as private citizens?
f\t a recent meeting of the Popu-
list County Central Committee it
was decided that the Populist would
open their campaign in this county
in Norman and if you will come to
the Opera House, Saturday after-
noon, March, 21st at 2:30 o'clock
you will hear the first speech of the
campaign. We have written to
Texas for a speaker; but find them
all so busily engaged in that state
that we have no positive assurance
of securing one for the above date;
but we have made arrangements with
DR. DEI.OS WALKER,
of Oklahoma City, and he will be
here without fail and perhaps, a
Speaker from Texas also. Dr. Wal-
ker is one of the public speakers of
Oklahoma and we assure you that
you will be well pleased with his
speech. We want to see the Opera
House full so don't fail to turn out

In last week's issue of the State-
Democrat "Taxpayer" attempts, in
a two column article, to inflate his
county attorney boom, by endeavor-
ing to force some foul gas into it,
and as the article is to be continued
we would infer the attempt will be a
continuous one until after the elec-
tion. He reminds us of the boy who
attempted to inflate a bladder by
blowing through a goose quill when
there was a two inch rent in the
other end of the bladder. The only
difference was the boy soon discov-
erend the rent and threw away the
bladder; but "Taxpayer" is so busy

Alva Lodge, No, A. O. U. W gave a lunch in
Mead's hull on la*t Monday evening. The ob-
ject of It wa* to bring together the full mem-
bership residing in this part of the territory,
ulso tUone who contemplate Joining some Ira-
iernal insurance order. The night was gloomy
and cold and a drizzling rain and sleet was tail-
ing, consequent ly the attemlance was not hall
what was promised or expected. However,
there were about 40 present, and onr fellow
isuian, S. L. Johnson, tirand Recorder for
the older in Oklahoma, auk several others gave
fhort talks on the history and essential benevo-
lent and fraternal features of the A. <J. I. W .•
and all pre en had a very enjoyablo time and
e believe a profitable one to a great degree.
In this connection we will slate that Alva
lodge So. 16, A. O. I . W., was the first lo«l««- of
any kind oiganlKed in the strip and still re-
laiiislhe largest membership of any A. O. I. W.
Ige hi the Ktrip, and we w 111 also state that it
hasalaiger membership than any A. O. U. W
lodge in Oklahoma, considering the population
t Alva a* compared to other tow ns.
It is useless in tins article tor us to repeal
what Is already generally known of the age ami
bstantial features of this noble order, hut the
man looking joi cheap and absolutely side bi-
anco always investigates the workmen, and
thli consequence Is the membership is increas-
ing taster than that of any other.
The strength of the A. O. U. W. lies in the
fact that it is the only fraternal lusuiance order
in this territory whose Urand Lodge officers re-
side and whose grand linlge meets in this tern-
;ory; all oilier insurance orders are from the
jutside and controlled by people who are
at rangers to us. 1 he a. O. u. w. hold* a char-
ier from the Secretary of the Territory to do
busluess la this territory and Is the only insur-
ance order that Is so authorised. These quali-
ties make It the prime favorite in Oklahoma
Mild It counts among its members some of the
ery best people in the territory,— such men as
sudge Lowe, sec'y of the Territory; Hon. Joe j
Wisby, Hon. A. C. Scott; Capt. itlchardsou;
lion. Dennis flynn ami in its bulges in every
town in the territory is found the very best
material for membership. Oklalioino people
arc very zealous f< r "home rule ' in all matters,
and the Masons, Oihl Fellows and Knights of

lished their graud lodge* here so tnal Oklaho-

lias been done in this territory time and time
again until it is safe to say that lliepespleof
this territory lutxe paid out more for "organiz
log lodges" wtth foreign connections than the
so called "Societies" ever paid out tor death
losses here; and the one always benefited has
been the "organizer;" he gets his money di-
rectly from the members he "takes in," and
then goes his way. Bui with the A. o. u. W.
the record of the past shows what it hasdone
in this territory and every eent that Is Invested
in it is paid out in Oklahoma, ami every lodge
in the territory sends a delegate to its Urand

cord is something to be proud of. Asa fruter-
