It it a curious and significant fact
that thia government it Hill paying
pensions to widows of men who fought
In the war of the revolution.
Commissioner Evans, of the pension
bureau, expreeaes the opinion that the
United States will be paving penaiona
until, if not beyond, 1967, to widowa
of soldiers who took part in the war
between the north and south. Tbere

Messrs. C. R. Brooks and E. D. Nix
have submitted a proposition to the
council for supplying the city with

clear and liberal. The council has
been waiting for a chance to reward

been expressed in these columns here-

deeds during perilous times, but there
are many reasons why young widows

Several papers in Oklahoma appear
to take aeen delight in heaping base
calumny on the head of Judge Henry
W. Scott, late judge of the Third ju-
dicial diatrict The fact that Mr
Scott is far removed from the terri-
tory and is unable to defend himself,
Increases immeasurably this fiendish,
animal delight. The following is
sample of the rot served up:
A lawyer of Oklahoma City, failing
after repeated letters to him to receive
any satisfaction, recently 6ent to
lawyer in New York City a $50 account
against Judge Henry W. Scott for col
lection. He received a reply that it
was uncollestible, and that Scott had
nothing in sight that could be levied
upon. "Sic transit gloria mundi.
Pottawatomie county can go Okla-
homa City one better. A good, honest
farmer of this county, who lent Scott
*100, received the same reply from
New York. Next'.'—Shawnee Blade.
What good cin come of circulating
such vile slanders is |hard to divine.
Judge Scott is not now a resident of
the territory and has no ambitions
touching future territorial events.
While in the territory, Scott gained
notoriety on account of his idiosyn-
cracies, but at no time was he ever
charged with dishonesty. The Leader
dares to assert that the above charges
are base fabrications, inspired by low-
minded individuals at Oklahoma City,
who are still smarting from prompt
justice meted out to them by Scott.
Judge Scott is now permanently lo-
cated in New York, is enjoying a lucra-
tive practice, and is liquidating all his
UIVK UN MOKK LIGHT
The city council has before it for
consideration a proposition looking to
the establishment in this city of a new
electric light system which will do
away entirely with moonlight seances
and afford the city a chance to shim-
mer all night long under the refulgent
glare of lights that really burn and
give light. For Beveral years this
town has been stumbling and groping
around in the darkness, with the aid
of electric lights that possess no more
emotion or leeling than a parlor
match—used for Illuminating pur-
poses. The present plant is blind and
string-haltered and has been provoca-
tive of more stern, rasping ejacula-
tions than a time-worn Alaskan map
wanted for present purposes.
The projectors of the new light sys-
tem are Messrs. C. R. Brooks and E. D.
Nix, two well-known Guthrie citizens.
They have tendered a liberal and
broad-gauged offer to the council end
its immediate acceptance will result
In immeasurable benefit to the city.
Messrs. Brooks and Nix ask for a 20-
year electric light franchise which, if
accepted, will insure the building of a
$23,000 plant, with sufficient capacity
to supply light to a city of 45,000 popu-
lation. They desire a contract for
thirty-eight or more arc lights at $0.60
a month each, to burn from dusk until
1 o'clock, or all night for 89 a month.
The present service is far below the
contract candle power, yet
the city pays $5.50 for each
arc light every month. Where
the present company charges
$1.25 each per month for incandescents
from 7 to 1 o'clock, Messrs. Brooks
and Nix agree to furnish incandescents
of higher grade and stronger candle
power for 75 cents a mouth to business
houses, the lights to burn until 10
o'clock; $1.00 to 12 o'clock and $1.25 all

IN U00D CONDITION
Are Territorial Banks.—Increased De-
posits and 51 Per 3ent Reserve
Governor Barnes yesterday received
from Bank Examiner John l'ugh a
statement of the financial condition of
the state and private banks of Okla-
homa at the close of business July 23,
1897, which shows the Oklahoma
banks in a thriving condition. Of the
forty-nine banks twenty have been ex-
amined and in each case the reserve
has been found to be far in excess of
that required by law. The minimum
cash reserve allowed by law ia 15 per
cent—the actual cash reserve July 23
was 51 per cent. Practically, all these
deposits are owned by farmers ar.d
business men. Examiner Pugli says
the deposits have increased 25 per cent
in the last two months, which goes to
show that the farmers and business
men are getting on a cash basis and
are enjoying bank accounts. This is
a remurkable show.ag for so young a
territory, where everything has been
taken out of the earth in from four to
In addition to the state and private
banks there are live national banks
not included in this report with a cap-
ital stock of a quarter million dollars.
The deposits in these banks in May
last were nearly 8000,000; 843,800 un-

for the purpose of preventing her

defendant alleges thai his alleged wife
I potse*tet an outrageous temper, and is
addicted to gadding about; that she is
| extravsgant; that she has driven him-
I self and son from their home and that
for "five weeks she allowed his son's
bed and cloth ng to be uncar.'d for";
that she melted his earnings and
plunged him into debt. At the time
of the "pretended marriage" the "de-
fendant's business netted him 9150 a
month, but the plaintiff's high style
of living took all his earning and
caused him to mortgsge his home."
Various other allegations are made by
the defendant, who asks that the pre-
tended marriage between plaintiff and
defendant be by the court declared
null and void, and of no force snd
effect; that the prayers of the plaint-
iff's petition be denied and refused;
that the defendant recover of the
plaintiff the costs of this action and
that the defendant have such other re-
lief as to the court may seem just and
Should the defendant's allegations
concerning his wife's ''divorce" be sus-
tained, it is likely that proceedings
much more sensational than a divorce
suit will follow.

Ginners Violating Cotton Statutes
Attorney General Cunningham gave
it out cold yesterday that the new cot-
ton laws would be stringently en-
forced. The attorney general and
County Attorney Strang held a confer-
ence yesterday and discussed the mat-
ter.Qlt waa determined that in the
matter of registration the law did not
apply strictly to purchasers of cotton,
but more especially to ginners, and
the later are the people who must be
cautious and watchful. One bale of
cotton is sometimes sold five times an^
passes through many hands. It would
therefore cause untold annoyance and
serve no just ends to have the same
bale registered every time it wss sold.
The main objects of the registration
law are, namely: To ascertain the
amount of cotton raised; to prevent
fraud in stone-weighting cotton and to
trace in case of theft.

Attorney Thurston Wins an Important
Case—Case of Fuller.
In district court last evening the
jury in the case of the Territory vs.
R. E. Taylor, indicted on the charge of
selling 82,500 worth of mortgaged cat-
tle, returned a verdict of not guilty.
This was one of the most hotly con-
tested cases tried in the district tribu-
nal for a long time, and attracted
much attention owing to the promi-
nence of the parties involved. Attor-
ney Harry Thurston represented Tay-
lor and Judge Strang, assisted by
Harris Huston conducted the prosecu-

defense and his good work is seen in
the verdict rendered. Thurston is one
