The following statement is going
the rounds of the republican press:
The comptroller of the currency

based on the assumption that N bank

Gill For rooullst Territorial Convention
To Nominate a Candidate For Delegate
To Congress To be Held at Okla-
homa City Julu 31.
To Thk Populist Committke.mkn asd
Voters ok Oklahoma :—
Ily authority of the Populist Terri-
torial Committee, I hereby cull
delegate convention of the populists
of Oklahoma to meet at Oklahoma
City, Tuesday, July 81, at 2 o,clock
p in., for the purpose of nominating
a candidate for delegate to congress,
and for the transaction of such other
business as may properly come be-
fore the convention.
The basis of representation decided
upon for such convention is one dele-
gate for each 100 votes or major frac-
tion thereof cast for Hon. J. R. Kea-
ton for delegate to congress in 1898.
This entitles each county in the
territory to the following number of
Kxpeme. 62 10
Sinking fund to liquidate pre-
mium 101 XI
Total iltriuction* $*>; 83
Net receipts 17
Intere-t on capital inverted 4 per cent 4.240 ou
PROFIT ON t lBCDI-ATIOX.
Amount .9MM 17
Per cent . 1.011
Thig statement ia baaed on the es-
timate that money ia worth 4 per
cent annum. If a higher rate per
cent is assumed the profit on circu-
lation will be a trifle smaller than
that indicated above."
Now that is the strangest rase of the
"queers" that ever came to the no-
tice of this paper. The comptroller
has em and has 'em bad. All men
in business pay more or less taxes and
the banker pays less than most men.
The banker has according to this
statement 1100,000. The govern-
ment gives to him fl00,000. On
$100,000 he gets 2 per cent interest.
The other he loana out at compound
intereat, compounded every thirty
•nd sixty days at from 5 to 10 per
cent—the intereat always taken out
in advance. If you don't believe
that that is the way the thing ia
done instead of the way the comp-
troller says, just go to one of these
national bankers and try to borrow
tone money. On a business of
hundreds of thousands, the banker
<f>ays $500 tax and the comptroller
tsys he has $112 50 expenses. Yet he
only makes one and tbirty-one hun-
dredths of one per cent.
Just look at it another way. The
banker gets from the government
$100,000. The comptroller says that
it costs him in taxes $f>00, expenses
$62.50, sinking fund $104.83. Total
$6tt«.83. That is all $100,000 costs
blm. Then he loans It out at 4 per
eent and after deducting these ex
psoses which all foot up $t>t>(>.83,
be only gets from the $100,000, 1.081
percent. If ho loaned $100,UOo for
4 per eent, according to interest ta
bles used in this office lie would get
$4,000. Deduct $0I>0 83 from that
isd be would have $3,11311.87. Ho
the profit on circulation with money
•t 4 per cent instead of being 1.081
par cent would be u little less than
8} percent. Yes, the the comptroller
hai tho "quoers" and has them bad
The harmonious manner in which
the populists and democrats of the
coanty are working is very gratifying
to all eoncerned. Let the good work
go on. The consolidated ticket can
b« elected from top to bottom.

The chairman of the county cen-
tral committees of each and every
county will proceed to call county
conventions in their respective coun-
ties to select the apportioned num-
ber of delegates and an equal num-
ber of alternates at such times and
places as they may deem convenient
allowing sufficient time for the dele-
gates elected to arrange for attend-
ing the territorial convention. A
meeting of the territorial committee
is also hereby called to meet at Ok-
lahoma City, Tuesday, July 81, at M
o'clock a. m. W. H. French,

CHAGRINED ABOUT CHINA.
Despite the tragic quality of the
Chinese upheaval, with the proba-
bilities for massacre and slaughter
whicn it portends, there is an ele-
ment of comedy growing out of it
hich is supplied by John Bull.
To the voracious landgrabber of
the world and chief International
bully, China has been for years an
object of growing covetousness.
England, through years of success-
ful intriguing and persistent com-
mercial enterprise, has succeeded in
capturing three-fourths of the foreign
trade of the Mongolian empire, which
contains one-third of the entire
population of the earth.
At a time when the opportunity
arrives for which she has been look-
ing—the opportunity to throw a
powerful army into the flowery king-
dom, and under guise of restoring
order, to seize and hold a fat slice of
its fairest provinces—Kngland finds
herself tied hand and foot in South
Africa by the stubborn resistance of
a few mountain freemen, whom she
has for nearly a year been trying to
crush, and her immense army, which
the wants to let loose upon the Chi-
nese situation, practically penned up
by the Boers.
The most she can do is to send a
few hundred marines to act in con-
cert with the forces of other nations
in advancing on Pekin to save, if
possible, the property and lives of
her subjects, while Russia has an
army at hand to do those things
which Kngland has been planning
for years to do in just such an em
ergency as has arisen.
No wonder John Bull is biting him
self with chagrin and anger at the
unfortunate predicament he has got
himself into through following the
advice of Cecil Rhodes and Joey
Chainbvrlain. No wonder he is so
carried away by spleen that ho is
shaking his fist at brave little Hobs,
who has saved British military pres-
tigo after a fashion, and is telling the
grizzled old warrior that he hasn't
come up to expectations by a large
majority.—K. C. Times.
The regular populist committee
meeting is the lust Suturday in euch
month. Committeemen from each
township should be present at the
naxt meeting, June 80, as Important
business Is to he transacted.
For the benefit of those who do
not know the division of the offices
made by the committees of the pop-
ulists ar.d democrats of the county,
we republish the following:
Populists—Sheriff, Treasurer, Sur-
veyor, County Attorney, County
Superintendent, Commissioners of
the First and 8econd districts.
Democrats—Register of Deeds, As-
sessor, County Clerk, Weigher, Pro-
hate Judge, Coroner, Commissioner
of Second district.
A few things that will go to de-
feat the republicans in November
are the absolute ownership of the
republican party by the trusts, which
furnish an enormous corruption
fund, the enormous expenditure of
the people's treasure in a worse
than useless war, the had faith oftlie
administration with Cuba, Porto
Rico and the Philippines, the Cuban
scandals and the Hay• Paunceforte
surrender of American manhoed.
Of the numerous reports that
reach this office daily from all parts'
of the county, not one is opposed to |
the adopted plan of consolidation.
Continue the work of harmony, then
go to the polls and vote and the vic-
tory will be easy.
The next regular meeting of the
populist county central committee
will be held Saturday, June 30. The
attendance should be good as the
date for the county convention will
doubtless be fixed at this meeting.

8WII.ER BROS.—This will teitify that 1 bought a l'lano binder from you during the season uf
189!i. The machine was set up in my litld and turned over to iny two boys, the oldest being || „,H|
the youngest 12 years of age. They harvested tny entire crop of l'.K) acres of grain in the most
feet manner and without any help from any other person whatever and without a break or accident
of any kind. The machine is ready to begin the coming harvest without n single piece .of repair, ,l(
any kind or any adjusting whatever. During my lifetime experience as farmer I have used all i|„.
leading makes of binders and can safely say that tho l'lano is at least one horse lighter draft than nv
machine on the market today.—W. A. WATSON.

known men as W. P. Lyon, Stillwater, Jno. McLain and J. L. Jerome and many
