A COSTLY LEGISLATURE.
The Last Oklahoma Assembly
Guthrie, Ok., April 13.—The ex-
penses of the last legislatieve assem-
bly amounted to $36,888.88, more
than *7,000 in excess of the assem-
bly of 1901. It was extravagant in
the employment of clerks, especially
in the house, where the pay-roll was
more than #180 a day.
The difference between the last
two assemblies was due mostly to
the clerk hire, that of 1903 being
about ?6,ooo greater than 1901.
The amount paid out for printing
laws and journals was about #1,200
greater than in 1901- The expense
of the last five assemblies was:
Third assembly, 1895, $i7.S4°S2J
fourth, 1897, $29.'°9>35i i899>
$25,978.98; sixth, 1901, ^29,713;
seventh, 1903, #36,888.88.
Codifying laws cost #1,500; print-
ing laws and journals in session,
#16,200; investigating Fort Supply
reservation, #250, and the investiga
ting committee, #295.
The third* Legislative assembly
was controlled by the republicans
by a very small majority in both
houses. 1 here was only one demo-
crat in the council and three in the
house. The populists had five mem-
bers in the council aud seven in the
house and so close was the race in the
districts that enough populists to
have controlled .both houses were de-
feated by pluralities which amount-
ed to only 49 votes. 1 he 4th legis-
lative body was fusion and control-
led by the democrats. The 5th
council was in control of lepubli-
cans and House by democrats. 1 he
sixth the democrats were in control
in the council and the republicans
in the house.
In the 7th the democrats were in
full control in both houses anil as a
consequence the taxpayers of the
territory are called upon to put up
for expense more than double the
amount of money they were called
upon to put up for the 3rd legisla-
tive assembly. It is also a recog-
nized fact by everyone conversant
-with legislative assemblies in Okla-
homa that more good laws and few-
er bad ones were enacted by the 3rd
legislative assembly than by any
other legislative assembly in Okla-
homa and also that the 7^' legisla-
tive assembly was the completes!
failure of any legislative assembly
Its speakers will, perhaps, refer you
to the glorious record made by
Jefferson and Jackson and no demo
crat will certainly be so rude as to
want to know anything about the
record made by the late democratic
"legislative assembly. It has been
almost a century since the demo-
cratic party made a record it cares
to refer too.

But truth shall conquer at the last.
For round and round we run,
And ever the right comes uppermost,
And ever is justice done.
Pace through thy cell pld Socrates,
Cheerily to and fro,
Trust to the impulse of thy soul,
And let the poison flow
They may shatte to earth the lamp
That holds the light divine,
But they cannot quench the fire of
By any such deadly wine.
Plod on thy care, gray anchorite,

They may call thee wizard and monk
And load thee with dispraise,
Thou wert born five hundred years
For the comfort of thy days.
But not too soon for human kind,
Time hath reward in store,
And the demons of our sires become
The saints that we adore.

delighted to denounce on the stump
the extravagance and incompetency
of other political parties; but just
what it will do for a campaign issue
in the next campaign in Oklahoma
is not quite clear at this writing.
Many have died in their misery,
And left their thoughts untold.
And many live and are ranked as

For sending their bright, far-seeing
