The burning of the court house

out her little hammer and commence
The bulls in the wheat-pit have

per bushel in the Chicago market.
Hon. R. J. Ray of Lawton, takes
the Oklahoman newspaper to task
for coming out in favor of Heart's
candidacy for the Democratic Presi
dential nomination. Ray thinks
Hearst only a Bryan shadow and if
the man who casts the shadow c^n't
win how can the shadow stand a
ghost of a show of winning. Grover
Cleveland gave Ray a land office
job and it is but natural that Ray
should view the political situation
much like Grover hence Ray thinks
Olney (Grover's Shadow) the man
the democtats should nominate (of
course he would not be unfavor-
able to Grover) and gives as his
reasons that New York, Indiana,
and Illinois must be carried by the
democrats, to win and that no demo-
crat of the Bryan school would
stand a ghost of show to carry those
states. Ray figures that the southern
states will vote for the nominee no
matter who he may be. Ray also
figures that the platform should be
made to fit the doubtful, states. In
other words Mr. Ray seems to yiew
democratic principles much like a
stock of goods in a merchant shelves
carried there for the purpose of
meeting thl wants of the patrons of
the store. The truth in the whole
matter is that democratic principles
have been so distorted and wrapped
by democratic politicians to meet
every conceivable contingency that
a follower of the teachings of Jeffer
son and Jackson should he meet a
democratic principle in the road
would not be able to recognize it
from a lobster.

The farmers are a little more
prosperous than they were, but we
do not hear of many owning private
yachts or buying diamond collars
for their dogs or even giving their
dead dogs costly funerals. Nor are
they yet sufficiently prosperous to
invest in the luxury of good roads.
When they get what they are en-
titled to, they may not become bil-
lionaires, but they will be several
times more prosperous than they are
now. Do they realize that their
improved condition has come
through the reform movement?
Can't they remember when the
powers that be were detei mined to
destroy the greenbacks and that not
a silver dollar should be coined?
Did not the threatened success of
a new party of the people save the
greenbacks and cause the coinage
of over five hundred million silver
dollars? Did not the new discov-
eries of gold add to the money vol-
ume, and thus prove the Greenbacks
and Populist claim that more mon-
ey would bring better times? Do
they not also remember that the
great statesmen of the old parties
denied that more money was need-
ed and hooted at the idea that the
volume of money had anything to
do with prices. Do the people real-
ize that there is even now not
enough money to pay a years taxes
and a years interest on public and
private debts? The easing up of
the times should not put reformers
to sleep. It should encourage them
to renewed efforts to get control of
the government. Events have
proven that they have been right all
along while the so called great
statasman have been wrong. Bil-
lions of dollars.^ worth of peoples
products are still going annually to
monopoly as a rake off and this will
continue as long as there is private
monopoly of finance and transpor-
tation.— Mo. World.
