A SHAM FIGHT.
All the papers are full of talk about
the • apathy of this campaign. The
reason Is because aB between the two
old parties it is a sham fight. There
were some military maneuvers on the
old Bull Run battlefield the other day.
There were very large bodies of troops
there, but no one got excited over it
and no one grew enthusiastic. It was
a sham fight. When the real battle
took place the whole world was inter-
ested and every man watched anxious-
ly for the latest scrap of informatiou
concerning it. There was no "sham"
about old Bull Run light. It was the
The campaign that was carried on
during the last two presidential con-
tests between the populists and demo-
crats on one side, and Wall street on
the other, excited the interest of every-
body. It was a real fight. Now the
'blues" and the "browns" of Wall
street have gone out into the field and
divided themselves up into two camps.
They have put up a sham fight and of
course there is no interest in it. The
speakers have no life in them. The
literature spread broadcast over the
land, including Roosevelt's recent
letter of acceptance, nobody reads. It
is all a sham. The nonsense about a
standing army that only numbers about
one soldier to a thousand people can
not chase away much apathy. The
personal assaults on the Bronco Bus-
ter who has been misnamed Trust
Buster, can only excite a lanquid
smile. It is all a sham. Everyone
knows it is a sham.
If the democratic national commit-
tee would publish some extracts from
tha reports of the interstate commerce
commission showing how the railroads
organize to violate the law; if they
would print something about the in-
junctions of the courts against work-

AU hopes of carrying New Jersey
for Parker were lost when prominent
democrats from all parts of the state
met in convention on the 10th instant
and organized the people's democratic
party and put a full ticket in the field
headed by George A. Honacker. Wat
bod and Tibbies were endorsed.
The convention was a s*ormy one
Several Parker democrats gained ad
mission to the hall, but their efforts
were unavailing. The platform adopt
ed denounced the action of the recent
democratic national convention in a
robust manner. The names ofWatson
Hearst and Bryan were cheered. That
part of the platform denouncing Judge
Parker is as follows:
We decline to follow the lead of
commercial politicians into the camp
of vV all street, and refuse to recognize
the Hills, the Sheehans and the Bel-
monts as proper exponents of popular
rights. That it was the deliberate in-
tent of the managers of the St. Louis
convention to deceive the people,is
proved by the fact that in no essential
particular does the platform of the
dominat party differ.
"Wherefore, We, the people's dem-
ocratic party,in convention assmbled,
indorse the candidacy of Thomas E.
Watson for the office of president of
the United States, and of Thomas H.
Tibbies for the'ollice of vice president.
We demand a strict and impartial en-
forcement of the laws now on the stat-
ute books for the regulation of crimi-
nal trusts and the enactment of such
legislation as will make impossible in
the futuie through the watering of
corporation stock and the issuing of
false statements of values, the im-
poverishment of the investing public."
This convention marks the advance
of the people's party into the strong-
holds of the enemy of the east and
there will be plenty doing in that sec-

ROBERTSON AT EDMOND.
Hon. J. B. A. Robertson, candidate
for council in the Fourth district, ad-
dressed a large crowd at Edmond last 'or an.v °ne: secondly, that inasmuch
as the typewritten page is only about
this county to the efficiency of our fu-
sion nominees, of the excellent service
done the county through ti eir sys-
tematic work and good judgment we
would have you remember our present
register of deeds.
First, what kind of service do we ex-
pect from our officers?
Let ub see, should he be qualified?
Should he be courteous and kind'*'
Should he be an officer for the entire
people, and not for any political par-
ty or favorites? Should he endeavor
to save the county as much in the way
of expenses as possible? Should he
place under his control, as assistants,
the strongest and most efficient, re
gardless of favoritism or political
We are sure every thinki ig man will
answer these questions affirmatively.
Then let us see if our present regis-
ter of deeds is up to the standard
To be acquainted with Vic Crouch is
to know that he is qualified; to be
about the office and have business with
him is to know him as a courteous
gentleman; to see him serving his con-
stituency and obliging the people
would at once convince you of his big
hearted nature; to know how much he
has saved the county in expenses here-
tofore lost in the way of unnecessary
records would be an item worthy the
consideration of every taxpayer; to
Bee records made and systems inaug-
urated since he became register of
deeds, by h.mself and assistants will
at once convince any one that system,
neatness and accuracy are requisites,
especially when the title to our homes
are being handled.
That Vic Crouch will succeed him-
self as register of deeds and that by
an overwhelming majority, no one
That you may understand just how
Mr. Crouch has saved the county un-
necessary expense in the way of rec-
ords, we would have you know these
The taxpayers must pay for all rec-
ords used in the county offices, and
when you remember that each one of
these records costs from $15 00 to $50.00
you will at once see why this item of
expense is so large.
When Mr. Crouch became register
of deeds, instead of filling his office
with persons who cannot make a leg-
ible record, he purchased at his own
expense a book typewriter for the
This was done for two reasons, first
tiat the records might be made legible
We do not know whether ht was
born in a "log house" or not, but we
do know that all of his life lias been
spent on a farm. He is a mode!
farmer, a leader in experimenting with
different crops and stock. He is no
only a leading farmer but ranks lore,
most in pushing any enterprise that is
for the good of the community.
Unlike many, he came here to make
this his home, and in doing so has in
fluenced others to come. His educa
tlon, like that of the founders and
upbuilders of our government, is
practical, more attention being given
to the moral welfare of sturdy man-
hood than to scientific information.
He possesses an abundance of rare
common sense and ready wit, which
mal'ea him conspicuous in enterprises
He has always taken an active part
in politics, supporting the fusion
ticket with influence as well as with his
ballot. Yet with all of these rare and
highly-prized qualities he might have
rested in state and national obscurity
had it not been for the nature of a
policy pursued by a few political
gi afters in the republican party—a
policy if unhampered will bleed our
nation in such a nature as to make us
forget the civil war.
The detection of this scheme by the
fusion forces brought about a double
determination to nominate a man who
is clean and honest; one who is able
to determine right from wrong in the
enactment of laws, and one who has
the backbone to resist the temptations
of bribery. The basis of this selec-
tion was past record. The man who
has demonstrated his ability to build
up a home and a community is the
man we want to help build up our
ihe selection of Mr. Carpenter con-
forms in thtf' highest measure to the
foregoing basis. He is a man who
will work to build up our territory
and not serve political institution or
corporation, He deserves the sup-
port of every voter who valurs his
territory higher than his party, his
home higher than some corporation
and his posterity higher than import-
ed carpetbaggers —Carney Enterprise.

to the continual increasing power of
the money kings, there would be no

it is a sham light. Everyone knows
it and the consequence is that no one

they would in any other sham light.
ihere is plenty of enthusiasm among
the populists. They are lighting in

millions would read them. Every

is in their eyes. With trembling hands

President Roosevelt says in his let-
ter of acceptance:
"As conclusively shown by the bul-
letin ef the bureau of labor, the pur-
chasing power of the average wage re-
ceived by the wage worker has grown
faster than the cost of living."
Both Dunn's and Bradstreet's re-
ports show that the cost of living has
advanced 37 per cent since 1895. There
is no authority in the land except this
report by Carroll D. Wright, which
the independent denounced when it was
irst published, to sustain the presi-
dent's assertion. Every wage earner
knows from his own experience that
it is not true, yet it is inserted in this
formal document. The only advant-
age that the wage earner has received
from the rise in prices, is that while
in the hard times, only one or two in a
family, and sometimes none, could get
employment, they have in the last two
or three years nearly all been able to
lind places. The girls and the boys
have all been put to work and the fam-
ily has been in a more comfortable
j position. But during the last six
I months that has not been the case.
Hundreds of thousands have been
thrown out of work and wages have
been reduced. Every strike for better
wages has failed.—Independent.
