JOHN S. ALLAN Editor
NEARLY S VIMS
By spccal arrangement with the
publishers of the Farm Jdcr-
n'ai. we are enabled to offer that
paper to every subwrilier who
|ia\« tor The Peoples Voice one
year ahead, for only o.S'K dol-
lar,- both papers for the price
of ours only ; our paper one y'r
and the Farm Journal from
tiow until December, 1908 near-
ly Five Years The Farm Jour-
nal is an old established paper,
enjoying great popularity, one
of the best and most useful farm
JSTTlils offer should be ac-
cepted without delay; the soon-
er the more Farm Journals you
will get for nothing. Sample
copies at this office.
Democrats no longer abuse Popu-
lists, because of the reforms de-
manded in the Peoples party plat-
form; but now are vigorously en-
gaged in abusing them because they
don't join the Democratic party and
assist it to capture the offices from
th*j Republicans. We are aware of
the fact that as an excuse for mak-
ing this demand Democrats set up
the claim that their party is nearer
to the reforms demanded by the
Populists than the Republicans and
that for Populists to refuse to assist
the Democratic party they would be
indirectly assisting the Republican
party to win the offices. This is a
very weak argument but Democrats
and demopops use it in the absence
of a stronger one to put forth. The
only real difference between the two
old parties is the offices. Two Dem-
ocratic administrations in this coun-
try, within recent years, has so suc-
cessfully proven this fact, that no
argument is necessary. That the
Democratic party today is nearer
to the reforms demanded by the
Populists may be true, and we be-
lieve that the longer it is kept out
of power the nearer it will come to
a full realization of the need of the
reforms demanded by the Peoples
party, in fact we believe this method
of procedure would soundly convert
if and the rank and file of the party
would join the Populists and the re-
forms would be secured; but for
Populists to assist the Democrats
now to power again would be to en-
courage their backsliding. Demo-
crats are slow to progress and easy
to backslide. It is no uncommon
thing today to hear Democrats as-
serting, "I am a Jefferson, or Jack-
son Democrat." Since ^.-flerson's
and Jackson's times the world has
made a greater advance in civiliza-
tion than during any half dozen pre-
vious centuries and Jefferson's and
Jackson's ideas of government, good
in their day and time, would hardly
be modern enough to meet present
conditions, and this fact many
Democrats don't seem to realize.
To continuously keep one
of the old parties out of power
would in our opinion hasten the
cause of reform; but for the people
to continue to turn one of the old
parties out and the other in at each
succeeding election is the longest
road to secure reform, that in our
judgment could be taken. If the
men in this country that truly favor
the reforms set forth in the Populist
platform will get together and have
nothing to do with the old political
hacks, the day is not far distant
when those reforms will be secured.

last week's editorials as follows:
"When the American people get a
chance to throw off the Republican
yoke of despotism they will emerge
again into the glorious freedom of
a Democratic administration." A
copy of the paper containing the
above editorial would no doubt be
interesting to Grover, but to the
American people that have labored
under a Republican yoke of despot-
ism and a Democratic administra-
tion of freedom it will be dull and
uninteresting, and without hope for
a lightening of their burdens.
It is amusing to see how the Dem-
. ocratic papers of this territory are
harping for a Democratic candidate
to run for congress next year. It
has been less than one year since
a Democratic candidate for that
place was defeated by 10,000 votes
by a very insignificant Republican
candidate and a man who was beat-
en two years before by over 1,000
votes by a Populist candidate. Gen.
Coxey says, "What the Democratic
party needs is a new set of brains,"
and for this territory, at least, his
dignosis of the needs of that party
is certainly good, for after the de-
feat of last fall, its desire to run a
candidate again is certainly strong
evidence of a diseased mind.
The Farm Journal has nearly two
million readers each issue; it is put-
ting in a new press that will print
200 copies a minute; it is the best
farm paper in America, and it pleas-
es the women folks all to pieces.
We have made a special arrange-
ment by which we are enabled to
send the Farm Journal for the bal-
ance of 1899, and all of 1900, 1901,
1902 and 1903, nearly five years to
al! subscribers of the Peoples Voice
who pay a year in advance. Please

University ol Oklitliomii.
The fall term of the University will begin
Tuesday, September 12. in making this an.
nouncement the management wishes to call
the attention of the people of the territory
to the work being done by the University.
The irnst year has been auccessful In the lar-
gest degree ; for the coming pear we expect
a Mill larg.tr enrollment and greater develop*
mcnt. The University Is the bead of the ed-
ucational system of the Territory. While
frankly recognizing the work done by the
special schools, nevertheless the University
stand* for something broader and higher than
they can hope to do. Believing that this
1h to, this management has endeavored to
make the University not unworthy of the
| university ideal. In addition to giving spec-
ial training in various lines it Maud for the
I wider culture of the individual student.
I The work of the University is clearly or-
ganised and Is developed largely upon the
depart mental plan, it Includes at present
four ^schools, as follows: College of Arts,
school of Pharmacy, School of Music, and
I Preparatory school. In addition, a prc-med-
! leal course for those who expect to study
I medicine has been organized. The liberal re-
sources of the Institution are taxed to the ut*
! most to develop new work and to better the
' facilities. During the past year a new de-
| partment, of Biology, has been organized and
I equipped with $1200 worth of tipparnlus. The
| library is being added to rapidly, and in ev*
cry course tha ampler means of carrying 011
| research work are at band. It Is the policy
of the management to spnro neither care nor
expense In endeavoring to provide the student
, with every advantage possible. The men
charge of the work are all highly trained
1 sptclalists from the best universities In the
faculty are graduates of Harvard, Princeton,
University of Pennsylvania, Vanderbilt t'ill*
J versify, Leipzig (Germany), etc
To the young men and women who wish
to hccure a higher ecucation we say, Come
to the University. This is your school, made
• for you by the people of the Territory. Tu-
ition is tree. Here in the course of four
years you will meet a thousand young men
who will scatter to all parts of the Territory,
who will become the leaders in public affairs,
and who will he lifelong friends, such as on*
ly the associations of college days can make.
For a young mnn who expects to go into
business or a profession in this Territory, or
who hopes to take part In the shaping of af-
fairs of the future State, such friendships are
01 the very highest iui|>ortance. He is no
longer a stianger or alone, hut can summon
to Ids aid a boat of loyal comrades.
