This office acknowledges the
receipt of a copy of the Okmul-

at that town. It is printed and
published by J. Sidney Moore
and J. Thos. Melton. The lat-l

and has many friends here who j
will wish him all kinds of suc-j
cpss in his venture. Those who
best know J. Thos. do not nee'd
to. lie told that his paper is;
right up to now, typographical-
ly and that the reading matter,
is snappy and to the point.
A number of the county

ty Atty. Davis has been too
severely criticised, on account
of his Sunday closing order, by
at least two of the Chandler
Adopted at the state convention
Be it resolved that we, the republicans of Oklahoma,
in state convention assembled, re-affirm our devotion t<
t.he cordial principles of our party which have unanswer-
ably proven to be conducive to good government, na-
tional prosperity, peace and happiness.
We most heartily endorse the spleudid and patriotic
administration of President Roosevelt. The right of
the common people during his administration have been
recognized and sustained as never before in the history
of our nation.
TAFT FOB- PRESIDENT. .
Logically, we believe the Honorable William H. Taft
to follow in line of the great Roosevelt as the candidate
of the republican party for the presidency of tbe United
States. We have in him the ideal American citizen,
broad gauged and fully equipped with the knowledge of
the great projects of reform government now under way.
In executive experience second to none in the nation;
with a practical knowledge of pur government and all
governments, of judicial temperament and experience
we cordially endorse his candidacy, not at the behest of
particular individuals, thinking to reap personal benefit,
or that this endorsement is the effect of their work, but
because we, representing the wishes of the rank and file
of our party, in < Oklahoma, would inform the nation at
large of our preference for this great office.
It is our firm conviction that there could be no safer
nor more experienced statesman to guide our national
destinies. And in furthetance of these sentiments, we
hereby instruct our delegates, their alternates orproxies
to the national republican convention to cast their
votes for every proposition favorable to the nomination
of William H. Taft for president.
We endorse the splendid record of Honorable Bird S.
McGuire, the republican representative from Oklahoma
. CONSTITUTION ENFORCEMENT.
We stand in favor of the strict enforcement of all the
provisions of our constitution and our statutory laws so
long as such provisions remain a part of the law of our
state, and we oppose any evasion of such constitutional
provisions or statutory laws through loose or unguarde*!
legislation open to abuse or construction permitting the
violation of any such law or constitutional provision.
THE LIQt'OK TRAFFIC.
W hile the constitution permits the legislature to pro-
vide for the sale of intoxicating liquors through a dis-
pensary system, we are opposed to'the state itself be-
coming a party to any such traffic, thereby making our-
selves, our wives and children, joint partpers in the sale
of liquor, and our property responsible in any way for
the maintenance of such system.
THE COLORED VOTER.
In view of the fact that the democratic party in this
state openly threatens to disfranchise the colored voters
of this state by the passage of a "grandfather law," we
join with the republicans of the state of Ohio in their
demand for the reduction of the representation in con-
gress and the electoral college, in all states of this
I nion where white and colored citizens are disfranchised
to that end that the fourteenth amendment to the con-
stitution of the I nited States may be endorsed accord-
ing to its letter and spirit.
DENOUNCE THE GOVERNOR.
We denounce the unpatriotic action of Governor C. X.
Haskell in refusing the national flag presented by the
ladies of the Grand Army of the republic to float over
the state house. Such refusal was an insult to those
noble women and a misrepresentation of the people of
Oklahoma who stand for the flag and its brave defenders
and for all it represents as the symbol of the
power on earth.
CONDEMN THE ADMINISTRATION.
We condemn the democratic state administration awl
the present democratic legislature for the creation ef
useless officers and for these extravagancies in state
government burdening the people of the state with ex-
tortionate and unbearable taxation.

"The Holy City."
A targe audience, embracing
nunv o( the most devout Christians
and members of the local clergy
witnessed the portrayal of the bibli-
cal story of "The Holy City" last
night at the Fraternal.
This was undoubtedly the strong-!
est theatrical company that has j
visited the local opera house this ;
season, aud the play lovers in gen-1
eral appreciate the efforts of man-
a.i?sr Hays, that enabled him to give
them such a theatrical treat.
This production wasclearly voted
a success by all present last night
who enjoyed to the uttermost the
excellent work of the artist. It is a
difficult matter to tell which char-
acter was most appreciated. One
moment they were held spell bound
tey the deep feeling of the char-
acter of "John the Baptist," in the
. leit by the clever work in the dif-
ficult role of the loving but venge-
ful • Salome." the bold and noble
declaration of "Marius," the realis-
tic portrayal of a mother's love by
"Elizabeth," or the child like iu-
oixience and penitence of the out-
cist. "Mary Magdalen."
The costumes and scenery were
spectacular and attractive, and the
cranKfor.ma.tion scene, the resurrec-
tion and the gates of New Jerusalem
irere beautiful in the extreme.—

The Passion Play.
Oleson & Groves, proprietors of
the electric theater, have just about
concluded arrangements to put on
the "Passion Play" in the near
future. This is acknowledged to
be the acme of moving picture
films, the tilm being over 3000 feet
in length and taking over an hour
and a half to run it through the ma-
chine. A lecturer and a musician
will be on hand to explain the
scenes to the audience. This, no
j doubt, will be the only opportunity
1 the people of Chandler will ever
have to witness this superb play
and not one should miss the oppor-

BUILD A PENITENTIARY.
One of the thoughtful c
papers, meaning, of course, the tractors and leaders in organ-
Publicist and the News. Speak- jze(j iabor circles suggested to
ing for ourselves we can truth- J the Times-Journal that the leg-
fnlly say that when we are islature ShOUld Select a site for
shown that John is sincere the penitentiary, build barracks
and really intends to enforce an(j begin work on penitentiary
the law, as it now is, then we j buildings. This gentleman gave
will endorse his action. But,
from all appearances his edict
was of a "grandstand" order,
and not intended to be enforced.
Here in Chandler the lid is reg-
ularly tilted. True, one com-
plaint was sworn out, the party
pleading guilty and paying a
fine of one doll.au. Other
places have run wide open and,
so far, no action taken by the
county attorney. If this be the
state of affairs why shouldn't
the county attorney be criti-
cised. If he intends putting
on th ; "lid" why doesn't he see
to it that it is kept on. Then
and not until then is there any
credit due him. "Grandstand-
ing" d>>n't count.
many reasons why this should
be done without delay.
The state is paying Kansas
for the board of the convicts
and Kansas gets the profit on
their labor. This arrangement
was unavoidable as long as it
was not possible to locate a
penitentiary, but now the case
The state is losing the profits
on the price of boarding the
prisoners, is losing profit on
material used in feeding them
and the salaries paid attendants.
A penitentiary must be con-
structed some time and if be-
gun withiu a year would give
employment to a number of
mechanics for work which
could not be done by convicts
and this addition of work at
state and these would. baiM
houses and thus increase the
number of wage earners.
The site for the penitentiary
should be where the men ootid,
be most easily worked and
where they could be empleycd
on work which would not come
into competition with free labor
if possible. To put the convict®
at work on the roads world
take them out of competitiaBi
with free labor, but the idea of
chain gangs is repugnant t© tbe
people of the state and it is!
doubtful if the people ' wauid
stand for such arrangements*.
A factory for tbe raaaufacTtire
of bridges and culvert material
to be furnished to counties at
cost has been suggested s.nd
looks as though it would w®rk
sati factori ly. The arrAager
intent would greatly stimulate
