Mr. Bryan is going to Mexico to
spend the Christmas holidays and
witness the workings of his pet fin-
ancial theory. The world has moved
on and the free silver craze is almost
forgotten by all but Mr. Bryan and
sleepy old Mexico.
Mayor Harrison went home from
Oklahoma with big stories of the
territory's prosperity. He prophe-
cies that the Goulds and Rockefel-
lers of tomorrow will be of Okla-
homa. The mayor must have feasted
some on Oklahoma quail.
I the wonder only grows when it is
learned that many more new roads
\ will begin construction work before
Perhaps Mr. Bryan's audience
Friday evening was more impressed
by his fluent discussion of service,
brotherhood, and equality than it
' would have been had it been announ-
ced that he was to receive one hun-
dred and fifty dollars for the talk.
How many of us could be unselfish,
paid at that rate.
Speaking of the great commoner,
1 you know, we have seen commoner
I and more popular prices of admit-
tance those in vogue for Mr.Bryan's
recent lecture. The local commit-
tee, of course had to raise the sum
required to secure Mr. Bryan. But
one dollar a seat is a little out of
accord with so-called democratic
and issued to him. The allegations
set out in his bill are faultly to say
the least and show a weakness in
the contest that one would not expect!
to find. The republicans of Oklaho-
ma court the closest inspection of
the election returns and feel confi-
dent that McGuire's majority will be
Holiday trade is assuming enor-
mous proportions and the express
companies and mail is congested with
packages going to distant friends.
The railroads are doing a big busi-
ness in hauling passengers. The
200-mile limit is very easily dodged
by those who understand it, and
when they purchase a ticket they
keep within the limit, and at each
200-mile stage of the journey they
purchase another round trip ticket.
By that system they can visit friends
and relatives in other states and get
a round trip for one fare.
Geo. Castellar, of Pawnee town-
ship, was in town Monday and Tues-
day. The new town of Avery, south
of Cushing, on the Santa Fe, is on
Mr. Castlelar's farm, and the town-
site is said to be a very desirable
location. The railroad company
has constructed a fine artificial pond
[ on land purchased of Mr. Castellar
i and there is an abundant supply of
i pure, soft water for railroad and
| town purposes. Avery is but two
miles from the center of a division
| and has prospects of becoming a
freight division when the new rail-
' road is completed. Mr. Castellar,
| proprietor of the townsite, is an en-
terprising man and Avery is in a
fine country and should make a good

Editor Smith of the Chandler Trib-

The average easterner when trav-
eling through Oklahoma for the first
time is greatly astonished at the
marks of thrift and prosperity visi-

forth remarks of astonishment, and
The funeral of Mrs. U. S. Grant
was held in Washington Friday, and
was attended by the president, cabi-
i net find many statesmen and officials.
I The body was taken to New York
! and laid beside that of Gen. Grant
in the great tomb overlooking the
i Hudson. Mrs. Grant had her part
in the making of her husband's fame
and was justly loved and honored.
