The two society roosters of the Daily
Herald, have a fjreat deal of trouble
with their polities. Park* never
claimed to be anything else but a K;m-
republican until about eix weeks
ago and Merritt always voted the re-
publican ticket straight until he came
to the territory, and would never have
voted anything else had it nol been fm a
well known democrat of thi> town. Tie
always voted and worked with the rc
publicans until he came to the te ri-
tory. and since lit* came to Kl Eieno the
r« cord shows that he has voted for
more republicans tluyt democrats. It U

You can always tell a man by the
company he keeps. Merritt has r,.n-
sorted with republicans only, worked I
only on republican newspapers, and |
| abu-od only democrat* since his ad-
| vent into the territory .

It is understood that the strained
relations between Ham and Merritt,
concerning the politics of the Herald,
is due to till' fact that Merritt, like ail
new converts, wanted to get right up
in "'meetin" and shout "glory hallelu
jah" the next day after they agreed to
change the politics of the concern, but
Ilatn, who has had more experience
of this kind than Merritt, wanted to
work up to the "sticking point" by de-
grees. leaving the way to |;t!l back

come down with the boodle when re-
quested. The danger Hum foresav

Ignore Political Ambitions
Let the people of Oklahoma territo-
ry have a word in regard to their own
busine-s. The territorial democratic
committee has met and resolved that
it will not l>e wise or expedient to ad-
mit Oklahoma territory proper with-
out including the live tribes. Doubt lost
in a short time the territorial republi-
can committee will meet and resolv
that it is not wise or expedient to in-
clude the five tribes in the territory-
applying for admission. Then igno-
ramuses will claim that party lines are
drawn and that a fierce partisan con-
flict has been precipitated on the line
of these two diverse proposition:
The Republic is willing to guarantee
that there is but little more difference
among the people of Oklahoma on the
question of admission than there is on
any other question the main object
of which the people are practically
united. It is free to assert that they
are opposed to any consideration uf un
ion with the five tribes if consideration
ti.i^: -us to delay the consideration of
their own claims to statehood. They
do not, it is safe to say. believe that
their claim can be involved with a set
tlement of Indian tribal relations to-
ward the government without
pi Spoiling its final determination for
many \< ars. They are accordingly in
favor of pressing at once and with uni-
; action for the admission of Okla-
homa as it stands.
The sentiment of the people is the
true arbitrator in a situation which the
politicians and self-seekers threaten
to complicate to their own advantage
and to the defeat of the best
of the territory. Republic-.

The "Afro-Americans" of Cincinnati
have just held a convention in which
they diseu-sed the status of their race
in this country. The most striking
feature of the proceedings was a report
from the committee on emmigration.
It was urged that a demand be made
011 the government to appropriate $2,-
000,000.000 to establish a line of free
steamers to promote emmigration. In
case of refusal stops would be taken to
import 30,000,000 Africans, so that the
colored imputation might be increased
to formidable proportions so they could
enforce their rights. The report com-
mented on the many drawbacks to the
negro and urged him to perpetuate his
identity. The colored people are nd-
rised to turn attention to the civiliza-
tion «>f Africa as the only hope of the
race and where they can carve out a
grand destiny. Great excitement fol-
lowed this report.and finally became
so grent that it was referred back to
the committee.—Kx.
