K. II. Howe, an attorney of Oklahoma
City, has an article iu the March num-
ber of McM«ster's Majaiine over hit
own signature, which contains some
startling observations relative to Okla-
homa railroad laws and railroad de-
cision* during the pa l seven yearn.

to be no one with temerity enough to
deny it, not even the judges them-
selves, show- a condition that is :>l>-

has been a decision rendered by the
supreme court of tbi t«i utory since it

commenting u|K>n this (a ;t says: ''Some
of these cases appear to an ordinary

hatd for hin-. to understand why, dur-
ing more than seven years in this ter-
ritory where conditions and inclina-
tions have been so prolific of litigation
that ti railroad company has not boon
held liable in a single case.
"This is as difficult of comprehension
as why a general act of congress, sup-
posed to apply to all parts of every ter- '
ritory and repeatedly held to apply to
other parts of Oklahoma is inapplicable

a man with a grievance against the
j railroad will have as much to say in
' the election of our judges as tho rail-
exist, the people will infer that the
court has been unduly influenced and
assessed valuation.
And it is a little unusual that four
legislative assemblies have met aud
adjourned and none but tho first has
enacted any law for tho regulation of
railroads, when the railroad statutes
passed by the first assembly are incom-
plete, uncertain, and for practical pur-
poses a mere nullity.
While the present policy of absolute
control, of absolute defiance, of absolute
prevention, may redound to the imme- tures have convened v. i angled, and atl-
diato advantage of existing companies, jixirned without railroad legislation,
it is as a natural consequence damaging although it is admitted on every hand
to all interests. It moans eventually that such legislation is first in irnport-
a conflict, a fight to the finish, a de- ance. It will also be discovered that
plorable repetition of what has often the members have been very kindly
road owner or official.
There is grave danger that pop-
ular clamor may arise and say, "the
corporations have had their courts for
a number of years, now let us select
ours." This is but the natural outcome
of such a conflict.
It will he asserted that our legisla-
are stripped of their official ermine
launch themselves out upon the politi-
cal sea, some with vaulting ambitions
to further serve corporations in con-
gress, others satisfied with any old
place at the pie counters. But if the
democratic party have become so lost
to decency and patriotism as not to
promptly shelve everything connected
with the past officialism of tho terri-
tory, then we sincerely hope that a
"populistic scream will not only enter
the eyrie of tho American eagles," but
that it may also enter the lowest cav
erns of hell aud stir up tho natives
The Okeene I'lagle says: ".Judges
Burford aud Koaton have each oiven
their grand jurors to understand that
the habit of licensing houses of prosti-
tution by the monthly fine system is il
leual and the perpetrators of such line
should go to the penitentiary. Will
the jurors do tbeir duty?"
No, they will not. In fact in Okla
hotna City they have not, as the jury
thus instructed has already adjourned
without accomplishing anything.
There is another feature anent the
instructions of Ilurford and Kenton
which the Kagle seoius to have over
looked, viz: Judge Uurford took snuff
the first week after bis appointment to
the bench, and Kenton simply sneezed
the last week of his official career.
It is. or should be, the highest aim of
every mcrchitnt to please his customers;
and that the wide-nwake drug firm of
Meyers & Kshleman, Sterling, III., is
doing so, is proven by the following,
from Mr. Kshleman: "In my sixteen
