THE COFFEE HABIT.
In an editorial, of which it will not
soon hear the last The Outlook ai
tempts to explain away the inconsis-
tency between ex-President Roosc
velt's declarations against a third
term and his present willingness to ae
cept a third term. It will be renieni
bered that in 1904, after being assui
ed of his election, Mr. Roosevelt is
sued the following statement:
"On the 4th of March next I shall
have served three and a half year.;,
and this three and a half years con-
stitute my first term. The wise cu>
tom which limits the president to
two terms regards the substance and
not the form and under no circuni
stances will I be a candidate for or
accept another nomination."
Three days later Mr. Roo^ vcl'
said: "I have not changed, and shall
not change, that decision thus an
The renunciation of the third term
is now embarrassing and Mr. Roos •
velt's spokesman, the Outlook, ha
undertaken to dissolve the inconsis
tency in coffee. It says:
"4ln Mr. Roosevelt's specific caa<
it is sometimes said that his state
nicut in 1904 and 1907 that he woul
not accept another nomination would
make his acceptance of a nomination
this year inconsistent. What Mr
Roosevelt .said in 1904 and 1907 re
ferred, of course, to a consecutive
third term. Mr. Roosevelt believes, al
though we do not share his belief,
that the settled policy of this coun
try makes a third consecutive presi-
dential term for any man impolitic,
it not improper, but the Outlook ha:
a better appreciation of his intelli
gence than to suppose that he had in
1904 or has now the slightest idea of
defining a third term except in tli
way in which we have here defined it
The situation may perhaps ue made
clear by a homely illustration When
a man says at breakfast in the mor
ing, 'No, thank you. 1 will not tak<
any more coffee/ it does not mean
that lie will not tak< any more cdi
fee tomorrow morning, or next week
or next month, or ne\ year.'
To all thi- piece "f pettifogging
ingenious would dignify it. It is al>ou
as absurd an excuse as was ever ad
vanced in defense of an inexcusable
proposition, but tin coffee illustration
is the most exquisite part of this i i
Would it not be well tor the Out
look to go a step further and tell us
how many cups of coffee Mr. Roose
velt needs for his second meal. If a
cup and seven-eights (one term and
three and one-half years) satisfi d
him for breakfast how many cups will
he regard as sufficient for dinner?
And is there a supper -till ahead > i
him? If Mr. Roosevelt takes two more
terms now he is not so old but that
he might take another recess and then
demand two more cups for supper
Possibly the Outlook may be able to
reason out (to its own satisfaction)
that the two terms precedent only ap
plies to the first meal and that one
i> free to drink coffee without limit—
« veil to the extent of consuming the
entire pot—at a subsequent meal
Since this great government question
has been reduced to level of coffe.
drinking the Outlook ought to tell
its readers to what extent the coffee
habit lias taken hold upon the ex
president. 1 it possible that it h.v
affected his nerves? —Bryan's Con.

Whereas, it is the will of Oklaho-

consistent with economical and lion

W. P. SHELTON FOR COUNTY
The announcement of W. P. (Billy i
Shelton of Norman appears in this
issue for the office of county clerk,
subject to the action of the demo
crats at the primary to be held on
Mr. Shelton authorizes us to sav
"that if he is elected to the office
of county clerk that he will pay all
of the clerk hire out of the salat v
which is $1,700 a year." In other
words Mr Shelton will take care of
the office for the salary.
We are not fully enough conver
sant with the duties to know whether
one man can take care of this office
but we presume that if he is elected
that n he has not the time that he
will go pay the extra clerk hire fron
his own funds.
Perhaps no man is better known in
Cleveland county than Billy Shelton
and lias always proved to be a good
vote getter in former campaigns.
