THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
Job XIV, 34.—For the congregation of
hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire
shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.
And nee the mighty space of our large
For so much trash, as may be grasped
I'd rather be a dog, and bay the moon,
Than such a Roman.
—Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
Let me tell you, Cassius, you youreelf
Are much condemn'd to have an Itching
To sell and mart your office for go.'d
Silver, though white,
Yet it draws black lines; It shall not
rule my palm;
There to mark forth his base corruption.
—Middleton and Rowley's Fair Quarrel.

close rub for honors.

When a woman tells her husband to beat it she
is not necessarily using slang; she may be referring

The Italian airship inventor who plans to make a

Thank heaven a man can sue for a girl's hand

p<> Tho rest of the country cannot understand all this
bi* fuss in Chicago because of the hunt after six es-
E" eaped wolves. Considering the number of them at
large in that city it does seera queer.
It seems to he ha mistaken idea that there are any
nnin-eating lions in Africa.—Philadelphia Inquirer.
That's so. It is a wonder that the enthusiastic
correspondents don't make a man eat a lion.
Prof. Hugo Munsterbcrg1 says Americans are
growing cooler, less emotional and less sentimental.
They are too busy hustling to make a living to pay
much attention to the emotions or sentiment.
Speaking on total astinence General Fred D.
Grant savs: "The reason I urge that in young men is
because I have found it an invariable rule that where
n man drinks but sparingly, only getting drunk once
in a great while he always chooses for that periodical
jag the worst possible time." The general's extensive
army experience places him in a position to know
whereof he speaks.
According to Mr. Churchill the African lion
isn't looking for trouble, its chief object being to
save its own skin. "If, being unarmed," lie writes,
"you meet six or seven lions unexpectedly, all you
need do, according to my information, is to speak
to them sternly and they will slink away, while
you throw stones at them to hurry them up
the highest authorities recommend this "
Sounds easy enough.
In the State Capital of February G, there ap-
peared editorially the following1:
Tvery iman Is Innocent In tho eye of the law,
until proven guilty by a Jury of his Peers and It Is
well that the people, as & rulo, remember that this
Is true, when confronted bv such a condition as ex-
ists in Oklahoma today where, besides the governor,
a number of prominent residents of the state are un-
der fuderal Indictments charging them with having
conspired to defraud tho government.
It is Indeed a deplorable thought which confronts
the good people of the youngest state In the Union
and to say that they do not deeply feel the embar-
assment arising out of the Indictments cannot be
gainsaid. They will, however, wait, with patience
until the charges have been presented to and passed
upon by a trial Jury before rendering Judgment.
It is true that the charges brought agulnst C. N.
Haskell are based on acts alleged to have been com-
mitted long before he was elected to the highest of-
fice In the gift of the people of the state, but It is
equally true that Oklahoma will expect that unless
the governor Is able to prove his Innocence of any
alleged wrong, committed before he became the head
of the New State Government, that he retire from
active public life In the state.
This Is said In all fairness and without the slight-
est thought to the contrary because there is no pol-
itics In such charges.
It is not the first time a man. prominent In the
affairs of the nation or of a state, has been indicted
by a federal grand jury and those who have been
close students of federal protection of public af-
fairs know that the United States government can-
not and does not use the federal courts for the pur-
pose of working out political revenge, which it
seems that friends of the gentlemen who have been
Indicted have Indicated.
Few of us, none of us In all probability, know just
what evidence was presented against the men under
On one hand we have the men who have been in-
dicted making statements to the effloct that the
charges are groundless and that they have been
brought for political and revengeful purposes, while
on the other hand we have the representative of the
government, in a statement in which he says:
"In all my experience of fourteen years as
United States Attorney In North Carolina and
as state prosecutor, I never saw or knew of a
case In which the evidence was so clear. Tho evi-
dence consists of records and documents that
are as strong as holy writ."
The case calls for the utmost fairness and sane
consideration and the people of the statw cannot af-
ford to consider tho matter from a partisan stand-
The facts are that Governor C. N. Haskell has been
Indicted by a federal grand Jury and that he is
charged with having conspired to defraud the gov-
ernment in connection with Muskogee lot sales and
Tho Indictments against tfhe governor contain In
all forty-seven overt acts what are generally known
as counts, which means that in forty-seven different
cases there was presented to the men who composed
tile federal grand Jury evidence sufficient to neces-
sitate, in their estimation, the returning of the Indict-
ment. It is not simply one charge, but there are
forty-seven of them and the governor must answer
before a Jury of his peers on each and e-very one
All this Is what the Indicted men have to face
and any action on the part of Oklahoma, tending to
take sides for or against the Indicted men can have
but one possible conclusion, "a demonstration that
haste Is unfortunate."
The people of the nation will withhold judgment
and the people of Oklahoma will sanely wait the
conclusions reached by the trial of the case, which
for the good of the state and the men under indict-
ment should come without tho slightest delay.
Oklahoma Is Interested more than any individual
and Oklahoma has the right to insist that there be a
trial of the charges at the earliest possible moment.
Any endeavor on the part of the government or tho
Indicted men to postpone hearing will have a decided-
ly Injurious affect on Oklahoma. . ( There an.

FEWER RAILWAY FATALITIES.
The year 1908 was a good one In re-
spect to the safety of railway passen-
gers and employes. The number of fa-
talities in railway accidents was less by
1,932 last year than In 19(77. In 1908 fa-
talities to passengers In train accidents
decreased 70 per cent. The decrease in
the number of employed hurt in these ac-
cidents was 61 per cent. The bureau of
railway news and statistics which gleans
these figures from reports of the lntej-
state commerce commission, credits the
falling off in serious train wrecks to the
gr«at decline in freight traffic due to
buslnes depression. The decrease in the
number of freight trains took the strain
off every department of the train service.
If business had been better, more peo-
ple, both passengers and employes, would
have been killed on the railways. Com-
paring the returns of 1908 with those of
iho fiscal year 1906-07 the decrease in
fatalities to passengers and employes
was found to he 2,173, or 34.4 per cent.
The decrease in passengers killed was
from 570 to 292, or nearly 4S.S per cent,
and in employes from 4,430 to 2,535, or
13 per cent.
Even with this remarkable record of
decrease in railway fatalities In the
United Slates, Great Britain was a long
way ahaed of us. Not a single passen-
ger was killer in a train accident In
Great Britain In 1908.
