NO PARTIZAN POLITICS IN
REMOVAL OF THOBURN
Judging from results in Oklahoma and throughout
the nation in the past, the real trouble with the demo-
cratic party is too much medicine. The democratic
press spends the time that it. should employ in doing
things, in making medicine, and the overdose is too
much for the party. With the exception of the time
when the free silver wave swept over the country and
munaged to carry Oklahoma along on its crest, the
republicans have lieen victorious in every territorial
The republicans have been materially aided in these
contests by the fact that the opposition devotes its best
efforts to attempts to make political capital out of the
ni ts of the administration. The latest attempt to make
capital has been in the Thoburn case, certain opposi-
tion papers maliciously stating that he was dismissed
because he had incurred the displeasure of the adminis-
tration. This is not the caw but a premeditated mis-
representation. 'I he administration did its utmost to
save Thoburn, but bad not the power. In the fight
there was no partisan politics.
In the first place the Hoard of,Agriculture is a non-
partisan board over which the governor lias no control,

delegates elect two memlicrs of the board of agriculture

all. This board olot-ts its secretary, and the governor
unless lie exerts his ex-olJicio membership right has
nothing to do with the selection. His approval is not
Democrats are more largely responsible for Thoburn'a
removal than are the republicans. At the meeting in
April when the fight really began in earnest. Kwers
White and independent republican, Horace Mavberry
a republican, and li. Kleiner of Oklahoma t'itv, a pop-
ulist, opposed Troburn. A ikons, I'ullerton and- Han-
kins stood by him. The governor announced that he
was for Thoburn's retention. Had Mr. Thoburn held
his supporters in line there would have been no change,
for besides the four votes which'wore all that were
needed. Mayberrv, republican came over to his side.
Then the unexpected happened. Fullerton a democrat
and Ajkens, whose |>olitios could not be learned yester-
day flopped, making four votes against Thoburn or
enough to remove liiin. What actuated Fullerton and
Aikens is still unknown, yet their flop made it so that
oil the final line up the majority of the republicans
were for Thoburn. and the majority of the democrats
were lined up against him. Of the four opposition
votes. Kleiner, and Fullerton are democrats, while White
was the only known republican.
The general impression on is that there was no par-
tisan politics in the tight, yet if there were, the demo-
crats arc the ones who scalped Thoburn.

NEW FIELDS FOR INDUSTRIAL
TRAINING IN AMERICA
™rough the encouragement of the government,
manual training, industrial and agricultural schools in
this country have enjoyed rapid growth, and wide pop-
ularity. In Oklahoma, the Stillwater Agricultural and
Mechanical School is the one which the people ot tho
territory take (he greatest pride in as a general rule.
I hat there are still other lines of this practical train-
ing that might well he developed' in America is the
opinion of Charles F. Warner, of Springfield. Man.,
principal of the Technical High School, and the Even-
ing School of Trades, who addressed the National Edu-
cational Association convention at Asbury I'ark, on
"Industrial Training in the Public Evening Schools.''
"Probably no country in the world has done mor*
to advance the cause of manual training us a feature
of general education, he said. "Both the elementary
and the secondary schools have felt the influence of
the manual training movement and its value is uni-
versally conceded. The more strictly educational
phase of the manual, training movement Is naturally
found in the elementary schools. In the secondary
schools, while the educational side is by 110 means lost
sight of, .the distinctly practical element is properly
emphasized to a certain extent. Broadly speaking,
both the educational and the vocational element in
manual training may be considered as forming a part
of industrial education. Hut the program of all man-
ual training schools, even those in which the practical
element is most emphasized, is too general to admit of
training along industrial lines sufficiently effective to
be liatcly utilized for the benefit of the indus-
tries and for the profit of individual wage earners.
What we need is trades schools similar to those of
France and Germany, but suited, of course, to our
conditions and needs. Our manual training high
schools can never become trades schools, nor can they
enter very far into the field, because the American
people, as a rule, though intensely practical and con-
scious of the demands of an industrial and scientific
age, wish their children of high school age to have a
broajl training, with as much of culture as possible,
at the same time that they acquire a knowledge of
fundamental scientific principles and some apprcciu-
tk*j of industrial methods. Tn this end. thev have
built and cqulflped a considerable number of manual
training and technical high schools and they will go
on multiplying such schools. But these schooli aro
costly and they will be required to give the greatest
possible return on the investment. It is a fair ques-
tion tn ask whether these expensive equipments in
buildings, apparatus and teaching force cannot be
madw to yield good returns along the line of training
for the trades as well as in the field of general edu-

Attacking Cotton Reports.
One of the state organizers of the
Southern cotton ason.-latloii denounces
the government report on cotton acre-
age recently Issued from Washington.
According t< that pmonaie the govern-
ment's report, which show* .1 re-'
ductlon of about 11 per cent from
1104, In Intended to discredit the,re-
port of the Southern cotton .msoclatlon,
whose report figure* an acreage reduc-
tion of over 18 per cent. He declares
that "the class reporting to the Wash-
ington authority comprise the noncotton-
growlng public, Including professional
business men, tbhr clerk* and other
salaried help." while the Southern cotton
association gets Its data from "that par-
ticular clans of cotton grower* who have
no other controlling Interest, and whose
mainstay for support is cotton grow-
The department at Washington Is not
likely to be Impressed much with this
attack. It Is attacked nearly every year
by Interests on one or tho other side
of the market whose gamee chances to
be blocked by the government report*.
The government bureau's fole Interest
Is to get at tho truth, regardless of its
effect on tihe market. To the federal
statisticians at Washington the bull and
the bear look alike. They get the best
local agents whom they can find, and
they base their calculation* upon the re-
port* of these agents, Irrespective alto-
gether of the effect which these may
have on ths scheme* of the gambler*.
On the other hand, the private agen-
cies all have an Interest In prices. The
cotton growers, who. according to the
man who criticises the government bu-
reau. furnish the points for the South-
ern cotton association, have a direct in-
terest In keeping prices up. If, as they
say. there hft been a reduction of 18
per. cent In the acreage of cotton In
1906. as compared with lfM>4, the tend-
ency will be to advance price*. The
government's bureau puts the reduction
of acreage wt only 11 per cent, which
would mean a much larger crop this year
than the Southern cotton association fig-
ures on. The country will be apt to ac-
cept the government experts' estimate
rather than that of the private, Inter-
ested association. The attack on the
federal bureau will count for nothing
unle.'e supported by tangible evidence.
Bob Neff on Dead Beats.
Lawton State Democrat.
It takes all kinds of people to make up
this world, but sometime* you think
one kind could be cut out without any
j Injury to the rest of the world. Did
you ever stand any length of time at the
gate at the fair grounds, when a ball
game Is on. and watch the work of some
Of couife the grounds are located In a
public park, and when it comes down to
a of law. those grounds are open
free to the publii . But a* a rule the
public realises that an admission fee
must be chtarfed to defray the expenses
of the visiting ball team, otherwise there
would be.110 b.'.M games here, and the
public gladly pays an admission -fee.
Naturally a small boy climbs over the
fence and got.* in without paying. He
Wouldn't be a genuine boy if he didn't.
But there arc preat big overgrown
deadheads that devise various -schemes
for getting In without paying. Some of
the«e wneuk In with the nm.tll boys, by
climbing over the fence. But the one
with thp thinnest cxcuse Is the, fellow
who drives up to the gate and demands
admission so that he can "work-out"
his horse on the track. He puts up a I
talk tliat he doesn't care a snap of his
linger about teeing a ball game, but It
Is very Important 'hat right at that
time he be permitted to work out his
horse on the track. He'generally driven

tlnv tat which to work out a horse, h'-

drives around track once or twice,

.Muskogee: —No particular day In the
year Is required to prove the patriotism
of the people of the Indian Territory.
They are not of a class who forgetting
their loyalty to the government and tho
flag they love, muat be reminded of the
fact that they are American citizens by
some proclamation or specific month or
day. Every day that they have ' en-
dured the present mlsactmlnlstratlon of
affairs In this Territory proves their loy-
alty tf> their country. Every day they
submitted to political orphanage, govern-
ment by clerkships, taxation without rep-
resentation. autocratic rule by Incompe-
tent appointee*, and the disadmlniatra-
tlon of their affairs by officials In whose
selection they have no voice proves their
title to the highest type of citizenship.
The brain that conceived, the hand that
wrote, and the immortal band of patriots
that signed the deathless Declaration of
Independence suffered no more unjust
un-American Indignities when the revolt
came than have been Inflicted on the pol-
itical orphans of this territory and still
ne expression disloyal to our guvemaaecit
h heard. Mill no ileclarstluo of Independ-
ence Is written. stIU no violent outburst
of .anger, but only sugpiteaUon for a
"square deal'' as Americana, for Ameri-
cans living In the heart of the American
government. The loya*ty of the people
in 'this territory is not measured by the
amount of eelary per annum drawn from
the government. It is not bolstered up
with place end petitions of power It
Is not fed on promises of political pie and
perquisite* It is kept alive by patrio-
tism strong enough to go .under a new
made mound at San Juan, in the Philip-
pines or whatever the flag may beckon
or the bugle call. It is kept alive by the
rich red blood of the sons and daughters
of the heroes from an hundred battle fields.
It Is kept alive by loyalty that can not
be measured by lucre, by patriotism not
builded on poaitions of power, by love of
country not purchased by place, but by a
citizenship hoping and belleville in that
Justice which, while perhaps delayed,
must song be meted out of them. Since
first the restless Spaniard set foot on
American soil and the Indian race bejgan
to move toward the setting sun no great-
er lesson in loyalty has been taught on
this continent than that being written
and given 'to the country day after day
by the people of the Territory.
