know that he could do much lo right
himself with the people by cutting
the appropriations in half. He
would Incur the enmity of individual
committees perhaps but the taxpay-

an act. However, the governor
should hit at some of the big sums,

Within the last week the state of
Texas has been somewhat aroused
by charges of corruption and bribery
made against its elected representa-
tives in the state legislature. Ac-
ording to stories from Austin the
Texas solons in order to insure not
being caught at accepting bribes, re-
sorted to a means of deception well
known to men of their class in Ok-
lahoma and probably in every other
state in the Union. This means is
the fake poker game. UluHtration of
the operation of this method is said
to have been supplied often during
the early days of Oklahoma when
the railroads were seeking to get leg-
islation enacted by the body of state
lawmakers and were willing to pay
a small per cent of the benefits to
be derived to the men who favored
them by enacting the desired laws
A representative of the railroads
would Invite a few members of the
legislature to a room in a hotel to en-
gage in a game of poker. The cor-
poration agent with marked court-
esy would deal the cards and would
very frequently be so unlucky as
to lose a big stake to his friends- Of
course the winners congratulated
themselves that they were so fortu-
nate and took the money. The next
day there would be more invitations be
to other solons and more winnings.
The corporation agent seldom drew
a good hand and the lucky solons
were well pleased with their exper-
iences at the "gentleman's game."
Many of them accumulated quite a
roll before the session closed.
One of the Texas solons who got
on the inside and observed the win-
nings of these poker games "peach-
ed." To his dull wits the transac-
tion had the appearance of bribery
and he said so His fellow members
of the state's law making body were
terribly shocked at his Insinuations
and called him to account. Then he
learned that he could prove nothing,
the others held all the evidence and
he was In bad The poker players
denounced him as the traducer of
W. .1 Bryan and other democratic
leaders of national reputation have
been endeavoring of late to have es-
tablished in some manner in such
cities as Chicago, Kansas City and
smaller Industrial centers democratic
dallies which would set forth the
claims of that party upon the masses
for votes, it has been asserted that
the greatest reason for a falling off
in the vote of the democracy in the
national election has been the lack
of such party organs. There is much
truth in this statement. The people
look to the news agencies for their
Information and when the news
agencies express opinions the voters
listen and are influenced according-
ly. All public men know and re-
But does there not appear to bo
something very superficial in the
remedy suggested by Mr. Bryan and
his followers? A review of the
past few years, taking the mere rec-
ord of history, will show that the
greater number of financial failures
in the newspaper world in the very
section Mr. Bryan would have sup
plied with democratic journals, have
been among papers of this faith, and
also that the reason that this section |the state house
is not supplied with journals
staunchly advocating policies are so
policies is that these polisles are so
unpopular with the masses and with
the buisness Interests that news-
papers find it fatal to stay by them.
Democratic dailies in the north and
middle west have become independ-
ent in their tone and many of them
have given up the party alliance en-

the fundamental laws of finance Mr.
Bryan now proposes to re-establish

It will be a state event and the re-
ception immediately following the
ceremony promises to be elaborate, j
the arrangements being in charge of
the officials of the state administra-!
There will be no invitations is-
sued for the wedding, but an exten-
sive invitation list has been prepared
for the reception which will be given
by the slate officials.
The wedding ceremony will he
performed at S o'clock, and the re-
ception will take place a half hour
later. Chief Justice Mathew J.
Kane, of the state supreme court,
will officiate and the state house will
be the scene of the event. All of the
rooms of the upper and lower floors
will be thrown together and profuse-
ly decorated with the season's floral
offerings. The employes of tho state
house will be given a holiday, while
the decorations nre being made. The
after the legislature's adjournment.
In the meantime the school laud de-
partment is required by the act to
advertise the sale for three issues In
at least three agricultural journals
of national circulation, in one news-
paper of the state of general circu-
lation ami in one newspaper publish-

If the democracy wants to have Its
share of great journals upholding its
principles it must cast aside the
fallacies advocated during the period
Mr Bryan has been leading It and
get on solid ground. When a paper
can espouse the democratic side and
support its position with sound ar-
gument and strong reason there will
plenty of democratic dallies In
all parts of the country. Today the
big democratic papers exist almost
solely In those sections where the
people vote the ticket because of the
anti-negro feeling and think of little
else in elections. Where there is
not a field in which a paper can play
to race prejudice and cater to the
memories of the Confederacy, the
organs of democracy are few.
This country needs two strong po-
litical parties and doubtless will
have them. It needs them for mutu-
al check on each other. But these
parties to exist and maintain their
hold on the public must advocate
something which appeals to the vot-
er as sane and just. The demo-
cracy must either come to that
standard or democratic dailies will
continue to die out until Mr. Bryan
will have the party's field of journ-1

as state warrants and, if anything,
more readily negotiable than bonds.
The first idea of tb. i «H<inture in-
volved an issue of debenture bonds,
the payment of which was to be
pledged by notes and mortgages of
the land purchasers, but was aband
