advantage " But they fail t
ceive that the Ragle and th
large number of good citizens rep-
resenting both parties are not fig-
uring this matter from a political
standpoint at all, but from the poiut
of view of the city's best interests.
Can it be possible that the men who
are objecting will insist on putting
H party above good city government?
Jt may be true that there are as
good men in the republican party as
the city can get to govern it by any
system of selection, but the fact re-
mains that these very men are dis-
gusted with partisan management of
the city affairs and will not become
active, as a rule, unless the party
lines are sundered. There is no
connection whatever between the
state and national issues and the is-
sues which should govern a city
campaign, hi the latter instance it
should b-1 a plain case of getting
able, clean, honest men to govern
the city. And unfortunately for the
objectors the dishonest and incapa-
ble men are not confined to the dem-
ocratic party nor the honest and
capable to the republican party.
As far as the Eagle is concerned
It believes that the Interests of any
party are harmed more by failure
to keep abreast of the times and to
meet and master new issues present-
ed as the interest of the people de-
mand that they be mastered, than
by taking such strenuous care to pre-
serve an "organization." The cities
of Bartlesville. Tulsa and McAlester,
two democratic and one republican,
have already decided on the elimin-
ation of political lines as far as pos-
sible in the selection of officers for
the ensuing two years to Bowru
those prosperous municipalities.
Scores of similar reports come from
other cities outside the state of Ok-
lahoma. In fact, there is hardly
a city in the I'nion of sufficient Im-
portance to attract public attention
wfcere the question of a business
form of government and the relega-
tion of partisanism in city afTairs is
not being agitated today It may
be that Enid is not ready for this
step at the present time, that Is yet
to be demonstrated, but that the
move is right and that the time is

The trouble with the Chamber of
Commerce, in the opinion of the
Eagle, is the same as that with th.
Commercial Club which preceded it.
No organization has ever been per-
fected. It is an indefinite mass or
conglomeration of miscellaneous
individuals. In strict sense that is
not true, but in practice it is. Any
man who is a citizen of Enid or who
even happens to be in the city as *\
transient, can attend a meeting of l
the Chamber of Commerce and take
part in It. Not only so. "but he is
invited to come. The meetings ar?
almost invariably advertised as

body's business." proves true and

was that of Miss Ida Purcell, daugh-
ter of Mrs Susan S. Purcell, and Mr.
Mbert Loewen. solemnized last even-
ing at eight o'clock at the home of
the bride's mother. 317 X. Grand.
The ceremon was performed in the
rront parlor before a gorgeous
ba kground of ferns and palms, by
Rev. Sutton. The bride descended
the stairs, which were entwined with
smilax and ferns, upon the arm of
her brother, F. Everett Purcell, and
met the gro.m at the improvise j al-
tar. Miss Purcell's gown was ai
quisite imported white satin,
train, with trimmings of dutchess
lace. l*pon her arm she carried i
shower boquet of brides roses. Fol
lowing the ceremony an elaborate
wedding breakfast was served to the
wedding party and the few friends
nd relatives present. Mr. and Mrs.
wen left immediately for Dallas
and Ft> Worth. Texas and other
southern points. They will be at
