the term of the corporation is to exist
for 25 years. The incorporators and

most successful bankers in Oklahoma
and a man whose word is accepted as
authority on all financial matters.

A KuypeatKm to ffie Guthrie Cluk
We thoroughly appreciate the good
work that has been done by the Quth-
rie club. It haa done much good in
the way of promoting charity, and
also has furnlahed a convenient re-
sort for the entertainment of some of
our citliens, and alao occasionally for
the entertainment of visitors to our
city. It haa spaam^dically worked to
secure additional railway facilitlea,
but Ita members are bualneaa men
with their own bualneaa to look after,
and they have never been able to
originate and carry out any well di-
rected or continuous effort in that di-
rection. It seems to ua that the club
haa never graaped the problem of
town building or made any well
directed effort to protect the trade
Interests of the city.
In every city that haa prospered
and grown into prominence commer-
cially aa a business center, the board
of trade, or commercial club or what-
ever organization haa bean used to
look after the city. Some ore has
been selected aa president or secretary
who could devote hia time to railway
problems, the rate problems, and the
securing of the location of new indus-
trlea. ft seems to us that the Guthrie
club should take hold of the matter
and provide some one who will devote
his time and energy to matters of this
kind or a new business men's club
shoulil be organized to look after the

The bosrd of directors of the Kau
sas, Oklahoma Central A Southwest-
ern Railway company met yesterday
in this city at the offices of Mr. Henry
E. Asp, the Santa Fe's representative
in Oklahoma, for the purpose of or-
ganizing the new board of directors
elected at Stillwater on the 13th and
at Cherryvale, Kansas, on the 10th,
The board was rearranged and is
now composed of the following named
gentlemen: Aldace F. Walker, New
York; Edward P. Ripley Edward D
Kenna, Chicago; Henry E. Asp, U* C.
Gush, W. H. Merten, Guthrie; Frank
T. Dolan, Wichita; John F. McNally,
Arkansas City; Samuel M. Porter,
An election of officers was held and
the following officers elected: Aldace
Walker, chairman of the board.
Edward P. Ripley, president; Edward
D. Kenna, first vice-president; Paul
Morton, second vice-president; Edward
Wilder, secretary and treasurer; Vic-
tor Morawetz, general counsel; E. D.
Kenna, general solicitor; H. C. White-
head, general auditor; Jno. P. White-
From the action taken yesterday it
will be seen that the officers of the
Oklahoma company are now practice
ally the same as the offlcers of the
Santa Fe. Mr. Walker as chairman of
the board, and Mr, Ripley, president
of the Santa Fe, president of the com-
pany. Some other important action
was taken at the meeting but the
Leader representative was unable to
learn the full scope, but enough was
learned to justify the statement that
in the development of its lines Guth-
rie will not be overlooked.
In this connection it will be remem-
bered that recently Mr. James Dun,
chief engineer of the Santa Fe, spent
over a week in the territory with Mr.
Asp and some of our prominent citi-
zens looking over the country in Lo-
gan, Lincoln, Payne and Pawnee
counties. From the care taken and
time spent by Mr. Dun It is evident
that he was making a careful recon-
naisance of the country looking
toward the location of the company's
There is no doubt but that the San-
ta Fe now realizes that there is a vast
country eaat of its main line that will
have to be taken care of by new lines.
No one can doubt that it is alive to the
situation and will protect its interests.
Railroads are not built in a day but
the Santa Fe is now building its Hun-
newell line down to Tonkawa, in Kay
county and has under construction
sixty mi4es of road south from Caney.
That Guthrie will be a point reached
by the Caney line, either directly or
by a connecting road, there can be no
doubt. Taking everytntng together,
we predict that Guthrie will Tn the
near future have dlreetrail connection
with all the towns east of us In the
territory, and a strong pull should be
made in that direction by our business
men, and also we should have our eye
out for lines west.

THE OLI> WAV
Of Treating I>y |]i.|> lH anil IikIIki-hiI
by Dieting L>>ii)K«rouH ami
We say the old way, but reully it is
avery common one at the present
time and many dyspentlcs and pliysi
c ans as well consider the first step to
take in attempting to cure Indigestion
is to diet, either by selecting certain
foods and rejecting others, or to
greatly diminish the quantity usually
taken, in other words, the starvation
plan is supposed by tuany to bt* first
The almost certain failure of the
starvation cure has been proven time
and again, but still the moment dys-
pepsia makes its appearance a course
of dieting is at. once advised.
All this is radically wrong It is
foolish and unscientific to recommend
dieting to a man suffering from dy
pepsia, because indigestion itself
starves every organ, every nerve and
every fibre in the body.
What the dyspeptic wants is abund
ant nutrition, which means plenty of
good, wholesome, well cooked food,
and something to assist the weak
stomach to digest it. This is exactly
tho purpose for which Stuart's Dys-
pepsia Tablets are adapted and this is
the method by which they curt' the
worst cases of dyspepsia, in other
words the patient eats plenty of good,
wholesome food, and Stuart's Dyspep-
sia Tablets digests it for him In this
way the system is nourished and the
overworked stomach rested, because
the tablets will digest the food
whether the stomach works or not.
One of these tablets will digest 3,000
grains of meat or eggs.
Your druggist will tell you Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets is the purest and
safest remedy for stomach trouble
and every trial makes ono more friend
for this excellent preparation. Sold
at 50 cents for full sized packages at
all drug stores.

Test of Roundlap Cotton Bale In New Eng
Mr. Wm. C. Loverlng, a prominent
New England cotton manufacturer,
The Roundlap bale of the American
cotton company continues to win fav-
or with the manufacturers of New
England as well as with the spinners
in Europe. You can readily under-
stand why this should be so in view of
the saving, and of the fact that after
making a very thorough investigation
in one of my mills last summer I found
that the average breaking strain of
yarn spun from this bale is about 25
per cent greater than the strength of
the yarn spun from the old bale.
Death o/ a Good Woman
Mr. Henry Derwln, foreman of the
job department of the Leader, receiv-
ed a telegram this morning conveying
to him the sad intelligence of the
death of hia mother at her home in
Caldwell, Kansas. Mrs. Derwin was
in her 56tb year of age. She was a
devout Christian lad v and a lifelong
member of the Catholic church. The
Leader deeply sympathises with Henry
in this sad affliction which deprives
him of a devoted mother. He left on
the afternoon train to be present at

within the pac*t four months' four of

their mothers in different distant

IT. S. Census Director,
Acting Governor Jenkins is in re-
eeipt of a letter from the Hon. Wm. R.
Merriam, th>j new census director,
asking for the total vote of the terri-
tory, by cotintins and precincts, and
the vote of cities of the first el ass, The
vote of cities of the tirst class follows
and is the vote cast in the fall of 18&8:
Guthrie, 1114; Oklshoma City, 1006;
Ferry, 045; Shawnee, 020; El Reno, 544;
Enid, 408; Kingfisher, 341; Pond Creek,

'lass but was not incorporated until
this year. Pond ("reek's vote does not
ntitle her to rank in this list, but at
the time of her incorporation the pop-
ulation entitled her to the position us
a city of the Urst class.
