PUTTIN' IN UIS "tItAl'S."
One of the forcible commentaries on
populist care to public duty is in the
leaving of the Rev. Jay Nancy Calla-
han for hoine to "put in his craps"
when he knew the free homes hill had
been made a special order in the sen-
ate and was likely to cotne up for con-
sideration any day. lie had hardly
got to his farm in Kingfisher county
before the senate debate on the bill

passed, with Callahan 2,000 miles
It may be lucky that Callahan was

could for this great measure V
The bill which passed the senate is
the Flynn bill word for word as it
pa*ited the house and was amended in
the senate of the last congress. Sena-
tor Pettigrew re-introduced the
bill in this congress. Mr. Callahan
has had absolutely nothing to do with
this bill so far. He introduced a copy
of it in the heuse, that is all.
Were Mr. Callahan in Washington
now, as he ought to be, he would no
doubt either get in a special rule, as
they did for the appropriation bills, so
that on a majority vote the bill would
be considered, or by unanimous con-
sjnt get the bill up in the house. It
Deter had any opposition in the
house, after Mr. Flynn had thoroughly
explained it to the members. Tho

did not have much opposition in the
aenate It will pass the house almost
naaaimously when it comes up- And
there is no question of its friendly
reception at the white house. The
free homes party is now in charge of
It ia a shameful neglectof duty that
Mr Callahan is not now in Washing-
ton to push thia bill in the houae,
while it ia warm in the pub.ic mind.
Were he there and had the energy and
influence of Dennis Flyun, the free
homed bill would be a law in less than

neglected. What are the homes of
the people compared to the welfare of

Ma ears aud aired his bray last even
ing by advising Governor Marries to
remove the county weighers. Any
tifteen-year-old boy could have in-
formed him that the goyernor has no
power to remove county officials."
Mr Harnes will need no advice on
removals, lie is the sort who will
elevate democrats on the toe of bin
official boot as fast as he can get at
them. He will afik ho present demo-
cratic interpretation of the law. The
interpretation of the democratic su-
preme court three and a half years
ago. made for the special benefit of
famishing democrats, to let them up
to the trough, will serve Uov. Harnes
The right of the governor to remove
county appointees has never been
questioned. Steele did it; Seay dia it;
and Renfrow removed the Noble coun-
ty commissioners and various county
appointees of his all over the Chero-
Thk State Capita','s advice to the
public weighers was given in the most
kindly spirit; to save them useless ex-
pense in fitting up scales and other
paraphenalia of the o31ce. If they do
not care to heed it; if they go on and
each gets about 1150 invested which,
when removed 30dayB hence, they find
dead property on their hands, they
will perhaps better appreciate the
generous advice of this newspaper.
They will go and go quickly. The
jobs now belong to republicans and
Gov. Barnes will aee that they early
come into their own. It was cruelty
to animals for Gov. Renfrow to allow
democratic appetites to whet on imag-
inary pie—pastry which, if the ap
potatoes taste at all, will be pulled
away from them almost before they
get one square meal.

It ia fally expected by the adminis-
tration /hat at soon as the new order
ia lasued a cry will be raised that it ia
in tha shape of a backward step,
but the president and his advisers have
become conviced that such action is
imperatively necessary. They expect,
therefore, to take out from the appli-
cation of the civil service rules quite a
number of important positions which
were put under the control of the com-
mission by the sweeping orders of
President Cleveland at the end of his
administration and apparently without
any study as to the results on the
President McKinley is fully in ac-
cord with all the foundation principles
of civil service reform, but reports
made by the difTercnt cabinet officers
have shown that it is unfair and
unjust to place confidential clerks
and heads of important bureaus under
the civil service law, because on them
the cabinet officers themselves are
absolutely dependent for confidential
information. An investigation is now
going on by executive authority to see
what modifications are necessary, and
when this is completed the necessary
orders will be issued.
The president is convinced that he
can improve the public service materi-
ally, and he will therefore feel justi-
fied in disregarding adverse criticism,
being confident that the results will be
entirely satisfactory even to the most
fanatical of the civil service reformers.
TliE El H I (tit AND THE 'WE.
In a leading editorial in the Oklaho-
ma City Times-Journal of April 27, we
find the following brilliant advice:
"To treat an ingrowing nail begin
the cure by application to the tender
part of a small quantity of perchoride
of iron, which can be essily procured
either in fluid or powder form at a
drugstore. '1 he tender flesh is dried
and tanned by this application and
ceases to be painful. When this har-
dened flesh has n-inained on two or
three weeks it can easily be removed
by soaking in warm water. Loose
shoes aud cutting the nails properly
will complete the cure."
It is pleasant to see the editorial
column, usually ponderous with phiol-
osophic statesmanship, get right down
close to the people, on a topic every-
body can appreciate. We congratu-
late Editor Ilrown on his novel editor-
Ttiik private secretary of his excel-
lency says: "I am surprised, indeed,
that it would attack the official acts of
a gentleman who has so high a stand-
ing aa Governor W. C. Renfrow, and
whoae character and integrity ia so far
above reproach." This sounds nice.
Dictated to the secretary by the gover-
nor himself, of course. Who can bet t
that for self-praise'.'
Til* governnt's private secretary
has "flew" to the defence of iris excel-
lency. It is too bad the governor can
find none but his secretary and hiB
luxurient, pap-fed newspaper shoat,
through whom to get defence.
Tiik Chandler News has arisen per-
manently from the cyclone and is as
clean, neat and breezy as of old. H
H. Gilstrap is undaunted and will sue

It is funny the democratic officials
do not like Tiiic Static Catitai.. We
have ouly told the truth about them.
Does the truth hurt?

ate and Callahan 2,000 miles away!

CIVIL SERVICE MODIFICATION.
There is good news coming for the
army of officcseekers. It has been
practically decided to make some radi-
cal changes in the application of the
civil service rules arid some sort of an
executive order may be expected befoie
The president has studied the situ-
ation thoroughly aud has come to the
conclusion that the civil service regu-
lations as applied by the executive
orders of PresidentCleveland have left
the governmental work in an exceed-
ingly ragged condition. lie proposes,
therefore, to make some modifications

Charles Hlatt Muit Now Stand Trial for
Killing HI. Wife.
Stillwater, Ok.. May 5.—[Special].
The grand jury has returned an indict-
ment against Charles F. Hiatt for the
murder of his wife. A few days ago
Hiatt was acquitted of the murder of
Allen Cook in the district court here.
Some months ago he shot his wife in
bed at Stillwater, and the coronet's
jury returned a verdict of accidental
shooting. It seems that he went out
to see about his horses about midnight
and carried his Winchester along.
When he returned, his wife, who was
ly ing on the bed, was shot through the
head and killed instantly. Hiatt says
the gun was accidentally discharged
and happened to hit bis wife in the
head. Mrs. Hiatt is well connected in
Missouri and at Stillwater. At one
time Hiatt claimed he shot his wife in
the yard, mistaking her for a robber
It is charged by some that Hiatt and
his wife had been quarreling during the
night, and that she threatened to tell
of some acts her husband had commit-
ted. At the time of the shooting Hiatt
wes undet sheriff of this county. Offi-
cers left today to arrest Hiatt, who
lives at Galena, Kas.
Ira Reynolds and Harry Linley were
indicted for rape, charged with being
to intimate with one Mable Taylor, a
girl under the age of 14, and of prev-
ious chaste character.
