LEADING THE VAN.
Better evidence that the Democrat.;
of Oklahoma are leading the great
movement for b'ofh the nomination
and election of United States seniors
by popular vote an not be had than
is contained In tin following editorial
from the Kansas Weekly Capital, « f
"Gov. Stokes of Now Jersey, who
has just sent Ills message to the leg-
islature called by him in extra session,
is not a member of the tfevv Idea ele-
ment headed by Sonhtor Colby pud
Mayor Mark Fagan in New Jersey.
Me holds a sort of middle position,
like that of Gov. I lodi in Kansas.
But the governor In this special mes-
sage calls the legislature down for
Its Indifference lo public demands. He
vetoed 51 bills of th" regular session,
and then called the Assembly back.
"Among other reforms outlined in
his special message, one is that of
Kansas interest, is his proposal Wiat
the legislature pass 'an dct for an
expression at the primaries of the
people's preference for United States
"Ths is of Kansas interest, because
of the favorable response that has
been heard to Grant Hornaday's sug-
gestion tihut candidates next year be
nominated by dire i popular vole of
the party, and the universal sentiment
in behalf of having the vote taken at
that time also on United States sen-
ator. If the governor of New Jersey,
no very aggressive reformer, thinks
it a good tilling, demanded in the pub-
lie interest, iu ills state, why is it not
good in Kansas?
Thetntfli is that of all public offi-
cials, the United States senators are
named in a way furthest from the di-
rect popular choice. Nobody has any
vote, direct, or indirect, on the sen-
ator, except the members of the legis-
lature. Nobody knows just how a good
many of them ever got to the legis-
lature. They were brought out as
candidates, without any public refer*
en e to the senatorshlp. but the first
thing anyone knew, their choice of a
senator had been settled long before
tihe constituency had decided who It
wanted the candidate to vote for.
"At this time the senior Kansas
senator has been busy traveling over
the state, getting in touch at every
place with from a dozen to a score of
influential men, the very mon who
know ihow to pick the'"members of
the legislature, making hj* plans and
laying the ground work for the selec-
tion of candidates who will be for him
for re-election. This Is the way tihe
United States senators are often
made. Only a few have any hand or
voice in if, or know anything about
it until the tilling Is practically done.
"A better way is to have a direct
primary and let Kansas Republiqans
as a whole, express their choice. In
Senator Long's ease it would strength-
en him greatly if be could be chosen
by the rati'k and file of tihe party as
their nominee. But if they are not
for his re-election they are entitled
to vote for a candidate of their choice.
"How does Senator Long stand as
to the direct primary? He is a public
official and a candidate for office.
All tho candidates and men talked of
as possible candidates for governor,
trie only high offices to be contested
next year for nomination, among them
Grant Hornaday. -Lieut. Governor Fitz-
gerald. C. L Davidson. W. R. Stubbs.

how they feel on the primary question,
which i < a bi~ question. Where does
Senator Long stand? Will he take

What has become of the old-time
Republican office seekers? I hey used
to be as plentiful as Missouri colonels
In time of peace. Now the very
black jacks must be bombarded to
drive them out. Hear what the Perry
Republican Is doing to them up iu
"What has become with the can-
didates who want to run for office on
the Republican ticket? Fill up the
floor with a hundred Republican ma-
jority as a starter. Get. in. you fel-
lows who want these nice places.
They are snaps. With Bills and
Hurley scrapping down in the Third
district for commissioner there are
still two more commissioner's jobs
open for good men and a nice Republi-
can majority to go on. Wake up,
the convention will be held within
the next two or three weeks, and if
tin' Democrats are going to make us
get to the front we should get the
start with a full,# strong ticket. Now
Is the time' to line up."

First Fine Paid For Jail.
When the little town of Bristow, I.
T . was first started, one of the first
buildings established was a jail.
Owing to the limited amount of tax-
able property ruder the law in tho
Indian Territory the jail was built on
credit, at a cost of $17, and the
structure had been barely finished
when a fight occurred, one man bit
another man's thumb off. Ho was
arrested and fined $17 and the city
was free from debt.
Sapulpa Plans Negro Town.
Forty acres of land has been plat
ted a mile east of Sapulpa and will
be put on sale for negroes only The
vast amount of negroes in tihe terri-
tory has a tendency to keep a feeling
of strife afloat and tho citizens of Sa-
pulpa thought best to establish a
negro town to avoid future trouble.
The most of the negroes of that town
are iu favor of the movement.
