the policy of the present administra-
tion ever Bine© coming into office to
turn d iwn the peop e who elected
them and that too, with a grim
look and deep frown which indicates
"it's none of your business what 1
do." Public office seems to be used
as a private snap in Oklahoma under
the democratic administration, in-
stead of a "public trust," as d< fined
by Grover Cleveland. It appears
more plainly every day that tho pres-
ent stato administration is not a dem-
iocratlc| ono *)U* upon the contrary
a personal matter bt tween the offi
cers elected and those appointed, re-
gardless of pledges and promises glv

FAST WORK BY FIREMEN WIND AND RAIN
GOVERNMENT BY COMMISSION.
l avonworth's city commission of
five men has mado i** good a start
that the Tlmon says opposition to the
commission system has practically
nx Ited away. The commissioners kre
even going after Leavenworth's Joints
and twenty-five were surprised and
pulled in one day, many of the old-
time joinfckeepers glivng up and leav-
ing town. Boxiomy is the watchword
with the I/avemworth commission,
but at the same time It is doing more

great if lean and hungry like our
southern ntlghbor and her devoted
friends, the newspapers published

The state administration Is evident
ly laboring under the convictions that
mon<y can be secreted from public
gaze easier and more successfully
disposed of than can the school
lands. 8onio excuse has been urged
why these lands should be turned
Into ready cash than retained for
the use of the schools as It was in-
tended when given to the state. Or
* course, the money will draw Interest
predecessors did. The Leavenworth
Times compliments the new commis-
sion government on its good start. It
"What was onco the opposition to
the commission form of government
tor Leavenworth has forsakeu that at-
titude and Is now seriously asking
itself the question Was not tho
change in type of administration a
sood thing after ail? The set of of-
ficials which the commission succerd
• d reduced the cost of government to
wha* it regarded as the least prac-
ticable figure, but the commission has
«lr<ady> Indicated the wiy In which it
is going further to reduce this ex-
pense. The commission has also en-
tered upon the task of cleaning up
tb4> town and making it a better place
in which to live, and whi e there is
a good deal of protest heard against
this course in many quarters, the great
majority of our people are ready to
stand behind the new government in
this activity. A year ago I^eaven-
worth was too tolerant, too indiffer-
ent to demand the best state of moral
conditions for i'self, and the town suf-
fered in consequence. It will be the
better off for the shaking up which
the commission is giving it."—Topeka

who will get it, the schools or the
state officials? Then upon the other
hand, will not the land leased to ten-
ants bring a better rate of interest
than would the monoy, to say nothing
of Its constant Increase in value,
which is taking place annually, but
this fact does not suit the administra-
tion, thoy prefer the money, some
thing that can be ikept in the pocket
and bo converted to use ns it may be
desired, whether for the benefit of
the schools or the Individual office
holder. The proposition has not the
least merit behind it from which to
enlist support from the safe and sane
bu inoss man, and It is only being
urged by the politician. This ques-
tion of soling the state's school land
looks bad from a business point of
view and never be tolerated.
The land is increasing more each
year in value than it would bring in
