The Kind \ou Have Alwus Bought
leader Bureau, Washington, 1). C.,
March 24.—The news of the alleged
interview with Governor Barnes on
statehood fell upon the Guthrie dele-
gation here like a calamitous explosion.
At first the governor scorned to enter
a denial, saying that the people of
Guthrie in Washington know that he
entertained no such sentiments ascrib-
ed to him in the Interview published
in the Kansas City paper ,and that the
pejplo In Oklahoma knew him too well
that coins | made to make the dese palatable fori
Uncle Joseph, and that likewise there |
will be no serious objection to striking

which were shot through the Senate In
order to make the victory of Foraker
over Beveridge as crushing as pos-
sible. This, it is expected, will en-
danger some of the numerous courts
"flint were grafted into the biH on the
floor of the Senate, and will reopen
the fight over the temporary location
of the capital for a definite period.
On this proposition Guthrie apparent-
ly has the inside track, with its train-
ed workers here on the ground. The
Guthrie men are watching every point
of advantage and incidentally are send-
ing advice back home against rubbing
ihe fur the wrong way by undue agita-
tion of the subject. They want all

said, in so many words or in substance,
that the interests of the Republican
party were paramount to the admis-
sion of Oklahoma and Indian Terri-
tory. Governor Barnes replied:
"I said nothing of the kind. I said
distinctly that the admission of Okla-
homa and Indian Territory is para-
mount to every other issue. I believe
every man in Guthrie wants statehood
jlrst and then the capital."
James Cottingham, of Guthrie, who
was present when The Leader corre- \
spondent accosted Governor Barnes,
said that if Governor Barnes had en-.
tertaiued any such views as were as-

" Cherry-Blossom."
It is a proverb of Cherry Blossom
Land that a healthy stomach is the
basis of all strength. Good nature is
also recognized as of great importance.
The Japanese as a people are remark-
able fur their health, endurance, pa-
tience and skill.
The cherry tree is the most highly
prized of all in Japan. It n«'t only
gives forth a beautiful blossom but the
wild cherry tret furnishes a bark which
is most highly prized in medicine.

This ingredient is only one of several
verv important native, medicinal roots
in for. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov-
ery. This is a remedy which lias en-
joyed the public approval for nearly
forty years, nothing new or untried
about it, has cured thousands of people
of those chronic, weakening diseases
which are accompanied by a cyugli,
inch as bronchitis and incipient con-
sumption. More than that, by reason
of the other ingredients, Bloodroot,

ical Discovery, remarkable cures of
dyspepsia and stomach disorders have
been accomplished.
Nearly forty years ago, Dr. Pierce
discovered that" chemically pure glyc-
erine of proper strength is a better
solvent ami preservative of the active
medicinal principles residing in most of
our Indigenous <>r native medicinal
plants than is alcohol. As its use is
entirely unobjectionable, while alcohol
is well known when used even in
small portions, for a protracted period,
to do lasting injury to the human sys-
tem, especially in the case of delicate
women and children, he decided th
use chemically pure glycerine instead
of the usually employed alcohol in
the preparation of his medicines.
He found that the glycerine, besides
being entirely harmless, possesses in-
trinsic medicinal properties of great
value. Its nutritive properties, Dr.
"Pierce believes, far surpass those of
cod liver oil, entitling it to favorable
consideration in all cases of incipient
consumption and other wast ing diseases,

of the stomach as well as indigestion
and dyspepsia arising from weak
stomach. One reason why it restores
the health of run-down, pale and ema-

Following a prolonged conference
of politicians here with Acting United
States District Attorney John W.
Scothorn, the p sition of assistant at-
torney for thirty days was turned
down hy Byron D. Shear, of Oklahoma
City, recent court clerk under Judge
B. F. Burwell. While it is stated that
Shear turned <!own the place because
he leared he could rot get his clerk's
books checked up to ill9 successor,
Hough Rider" Charlie Hunter, in
time to take the attorneyship, yet It
is known that Shear refused the place
under Seoth'.:rn because the latter de-
mantled too much dictatorship over his
assistant. Mr. Shear made "no bones"
of the matter in talking with friends
hero about it.
After Shear had turned down the
offer, it was up to Scothorn to select
another in his stead. A telephone
message today from Tecumseh says
the place has been tendered to George
A. Outcelt, United States ourt com-
missioner there, and that Scothorn
has wired the department of justice
asking that Outcelt bo named in
Shear's place.
Berkey Gets Place.
Ben F. Berkey, ex-mayor of Guthrie,
and one of the best fellows personally j
In this city, began his duties today as
chief school land inspector, succeed-
ing Charles M. Crocker, of Crescent
City. Although Berkey's commission
was issued to him during the past
week, no announcement was made of
the fact and nothing was known of
Berkey's appointment until he went to
work. Berkey served as mayor of
Guthrie twice, being elected in 1897
and 1899.
Berkey Is indebted to the McGuire
organization for his position. There
was no fight on him excepting that
Governor Frantz thought the place
should go to some other county. The
organization demanded Berkey's ap-
pointment, however, and it was made.
Berkey fought the regular Republican
ticket in this county two years ago,
and this was also used against him by
political enemies, but as the McGuire
leaders here also bolted the regular
ticket, nothing was thought of
Berkey's having been an insurgent.
