A GOOD EXAMPLE.
Whatever may be said of the pre-
sent city administration* ifche evi-
dence indicates that it is economical.
Because a majorty of the members
believe^ last night that the Exam-
the city printing vras awarded to the
the bids were made the Enterprise
the city printin was awarded to the
Democratic paper, even though the
majority of the members are Repub-
licans. From the manner in which
the bids were made the enterprise
believes that it was as low as the
Democratic paper, but it wants to
add that it also believes that the
members of the council were inspire,}
by honest motives in their award.
This action shows the proper spirit
although carried to the extreme in
the present case.—Enterprise.
The sentiments above expressed
are entitled to commendation. With-
out going into a discussion of the
two bids, we are willing to take the
word <|f the Enterprise that the
members of the council who voted to
awar^ the printing eontract to the
lowest bidder were actuated by bus-
iness motives without regard to par-
tisan political feeling. The council
advertised for bids for the cty print-
ing and received bids from the two
city newspapers. Then they awarded
the contract to the lowest bidder,
thereby saving the city the difference
between 75 and 50 cents per square !
and the Examiner's bid, 25 and 15 j
cents per square. Now that this!
is admitted to be good business judg-
ment for the city officials, why is |
the same not good advice for the i
county officials 1 The Enterprise be-!
lieves the council was actuated by!
honest motives in so letting its j
printing contract. Why should the ■
eountv commissioners not earn the
same approbation foir the exercise
of honest motives Y

Since Monday the cowboy has been
very much in evidence in this city
and wherever he has been he has
made friends. This roping contest
has proved to many that the writers
who gave us the "Virginian" and
kindred stories knew what they were
writing about when they painted their
subjects in 'the colors they used.
There were many "Virginians" here
this week and what we have read as
fiction has been proved to have been
true to life. The cowboy of the
"Virginian" is not a character in a
novel, but a living actual every-day
man, who does every day the things
we wonder at in a novel. He is
just as chivalrous and just as manly.
In fact, leading the life he does, ^
he can not help being so. The cow- |
boy is an allright man and the world j
is better for his having lived in it. J
Messrs. Ward, Gottlieb anj Mor-
ledge have proved conclusively that
they are "as game as they make
them." A few words of banter led
to the splendid exhibition we have
just enjoyed. The few words were
a discussion of the relative abilities
of the cowboys of the Osage against
those of the Cherokee country. Each
was found willing to back hi? judg-
ment with his monev ana from this
was built up the oig sporting event
just so successfully held. The orig-
inal stake was a small one compared
to the amount of money spent in
financing an undertaking as large as
this was. The advertising bill alone
was a bi? one, and from this source
Bartlesville derived a large amount
of good. That the principals were
'able to come out of the project with-
out having to face a large deficit
is a matter of congratulation. They
furnished the city with two days of
the cleanest kind of sport, which has
been thoroughly enjoyed.
MIKE D0NLIN TO MANAGE
THE PHILADELPHIA TEAM
Former Giant Traded for Magee and
Moore and Will Succeed
Mike Donlin will play at the Poi.i
grounds in New York city again this
year after all. But It will not be in
an effort to help the Giants In their
stern chase for the National league
pennant, for he will wear a Philadel-
phia uniform, having been secured as
playing manager of the National
league team there, according to the
latest report. The story says that
Felix Isman, the real-estate operator
and theatrical man, has bought an in-
terest In the club, having acquired
his stock from the estate of the late
Israel W. Durham, and that he had
dismissed Hilly Murray, who went to
Philadelphia from Jersey City to man-
age the team two years ago.
Some sort of trade has been made
with the New York club, and It is un-
lerstood, although no official con-
irmation of this tan be obtained, that
Sherwood Magee, the hard-hitting left
fielder of the Quakers, one of the best
outfielders in the game, and Earl
Moore, the old Cleveland and Yankee
pitcher, who has shown signs of re-
crudescence this year under Murray

the minor leagues, are to finish the
f season In New York uniforms,
i • Murray was asked to accept Donlin
! as a member of the team and as man-
I ager. On his refusal he was asked
to resign, according to Mr. Isman, and,
as he would not do so he was dis-
missed. Murray is a stockholder in
the club, but his stock constitutes a
minority holding There have been
many rumors as to the prospective
change in ownership of the club, some
reports having It that Murray was to
be full owner, while others said that
Lew Moren, the pitcher, was to ac-
Murray said that he had a three-
years' contract with the club to serve
as manager, and Mr. Isman, admit
ting this to be true, said that a con-

were met. It is thought likely that
Murray will take his case to the na-
tional commission, and possibly to the

To the older citizens of Bartlc-

during the last two days was not a
novelty, but to many of those who j
have coime to this locality in recent
years it has been a revelation. Things
happen so quick in Oklahoma and
«hang<>s come so fast that it is hard
to realize that the life we saw ex-'
amplified this week is so nearly a
tiling of the past in this state. Of i
course it. will be a good many years
before Oklahoma goes entirely out

All three testified that he was
insane and when Thaw took .the
stand briefly after some disconcert-
ing testimony, he was plainly ruf-
fled and nervous, but Prosecutor Jer-
ome dismissed him after a few com-
paratively unimportant questions.
Of the alienists who testified—Dr.
Austin Flint, Dr. William Hirsch and
Dr. Amos T. Baker—the last named
gave testimony of the most impor-
tance. He is acting superintendent
of Matteawan and appears as a

The district attorney put some rath-
