the Situation—Expects i5ig
Kingfisher, Sept. 20. 1904.
To The Publicist:
I wish to say a few words through
The Publicist to Mr. Straughen s
friends. Bv«y place we have gone we
have met encouragement and good
will. Reformers are glad that Mr.
Straughen is running, as it gives them
the opportunity to vote their senti-
ments by votinc for the man who rep-
resents the reform work done during
the past eight years.
Mr. Straughen made a troort and
forceful speech and the people are
pleased with the man. It does not
take them long to discover that he is
a true, genuine reformer and that he
stands for the best interests of Okla-
Mr. Straughen was splendidly re-
ceived in Greer, Mathews', home
county. The people of Greer will give
him a big vote. The funny campaign
being made by Mathews and his man-
agers is doing us good. They are
filling the county with private letters
begging the populists to support
Mathews. Such men as Dunn, Neff
and Mathews, of Payne county, are
not populists. People laugh at their
silly talk about beine such.
Straughen represents the people's
party voters. Democrats know it.
Those who do not support Straughen j
are uot populists. Look out for them i
If we had had a weak man instead !
of Straughen the enemy would have
had us. People's party supporters
are proud of him. He more nearly
represents the Bryan democrats than
does Mathews. He stands for reform.
Mathews stands for that which we
have fought for years.
We are making a clean, honest cam-
paign and the results will last. The
Straughen canvass is in good shape.
We will poll a large vote. His Lin-
coln county friends should give him a
hearty support. We look for it. He
will carry several counties. Lincoln
should be one of them.
Rest assured of one thing: When
we are done with thi3 campaign ther
will have been nothing done of which
any of us need be ashamed. The ad-
vocates of principle do not throw mud.
F. W. Jacobs.

Naples, Sept. 26. — The eruption of
Mt. Vesuvius continues to increase in
force and is now more violent than at
any time since 1872. Red hot stones
are hurled to a height of 1600 feet,
falling down the flanks of the moun-
tain with deafening sound.
The director of the observatory
says that between 5 oclock this morn-
ing and G this afternoon his instru-
ments registered 1,844 explosions and
that the stones thrown out weighed
about two tons.
Lava flowing from the crater has
melted the metal of the Funicular
railway, destroyed the upper station
and burned the wooden huN in which
guides live. Vegetation within a
radius of two miles of the crater has
Earthquake shocks were felt today.
Many people have left their homes
and are camped in open air. The
curiosity of tourists to approach the
volcano is such that a large number
of carbineer guards have been detail-
ed to prevent them from pressing be-
yond the prescribtd limits.
CONVICTS AND GOOD
The people of Oklahoma are soon to
be up against a proposition. It was
with extreme difficulty that we were
able a year ago to prevail upon Gov. 1
Bailey to renew the contract for the
keeping of Oklahoma convicts, and
the probabilities are now that when
that contract expires next January we
will be compelled to find other quar-
teis for our criminals. Kansas 8
finding it hard enough to care for her
own. Just what is best is a problem
for the next legislature to solve. Over
$225,000.00 has baen paid Kansas for
Keeping our felons. This is a clear;
expense without profits. Would it
not be wise to begin to think of a plan
for keeping them at home and getting
someting out of their labor? Crimi-
nals are as a rule strong, healthy, ro-
bust men, able to do a good deal of
work, and as a matter of justice the
state is entitled to have the benefit of
their labor in return for its expense in
A move is on foot by the good roads
association to introduce a bill in next
legislature providing for using short
term prisoners for road building in
the territory and to work long term
convicts within some kind of stockade
structure made for the purpose. The
plan is grow ng in favor.

Guthrie, Sept. 24.—As the result of
a spirited quarrel through their re-
spective newspapers here, Frank Greer,
editor of the Oklahoma State Capital,
and John Golobie, editor of the State
Register, participated in a gun play
about noon today, In the club room
adjoining the Royal saloon and hotel,
Golobie was unarmed when Greer
pulled his six-shooter, but immedi-
ately begged for a gun from the bar-
tender and hotel men. Gretr finally
put up his gun and left the place
Greer invited Golobie into the club
room ostensibly to take a drink.
When once inside Greer pulled a six-
shooter and a statement at the same
time, which he had prepared, and was
a retraction of the thing which Golobie
had said about him in State Register, j
and at the end of the gun barrel forced |
Golobie to sign the retraction. Golo-
bie got hold of the statement and put
into his pocket and immediately went
to the office of the State Register and
got out an extra giving the whole oc-
currence, contents of the statement
and all, and sent the papers broad-
cast over the city.
The affair caused the wildest kind
of excitement, and there is fear of fur-
ther serious trouble between the two
men. For some time past the two ed-
itors have been insinuating anything
but nice in their papers, and the occur-
rence today was the natural outcome
of the bitter feeling that has been
stirred up between them.
The School Land Lessees Union
met at the court house yesterday af-
ternoon in regular session. President
H. C. Notson was present and intro- ,
duced Richard Hanson, president of
of the Noble county union, who made
an interesting talk concerning the mu-
tual advantages of the co-operation
of the lessees at this time. Mr. Han-
son is thoroughly in sympathy with
the movement to have the school lands
disposed of, aud says it is only jus-
tice that the lessee be given the first
option to purchase.
This organization of the lessees is
not a matter to be discouraged by any
means. They have a common cause
of complaint, and if the stick to it and
do no' lose sight of purposes and ends
to be reached, they will have a chance
to win. "CJood enough" with the
farmer is too often spoiled by adding
too much. Just now a move is on foot
to introduce secrecy into the organi-
zation Just what the purpose in do-
ing so could be is about as hard to
figure out as the effect it would have
on the organization. If their cause is
worthy, we see nothing to be gained
by keeping it a secret: out upon the
other hand, since legislation is de-
sired, the more publicity the better
Secrecy would be interpreted to mean
sinister with a large portion of the
people they are asking to help tight
their battles. This school land is a
donation to the people of Oklahoma
as a whole and if the lessee would
aain their favor he should make his
wants known open and above board.
The secret part of it has been de-
nounced by some of the organizations.
