system of prompt payment from his customers. That's as plair
as the nose on a man's face. Seeing the necessity for doing this
the retail merchants of Hartshorne, make their announcement
in this week's issue of The Sun that beginning with Februar>
first, all accounts are due and payable on the first of eacl
month, and that failure to make settlement by the 16th o
the month will cause a suspension of credit. As explained
in their announcement, this is not intended as a reflectior
upon any man's credit, but because they are obliged to have
the funds with which to meet their own obligations, which of
course is but just to themselves and fair to their customers. <
A. B. Thomas, of Hartshorne, announces in this week's is
sue of The Sun as a candidate for the office of county surveyoi
of Pittsburg county. Mr. Thomas is an employe of the Rock
Island Coal & Mining Co., on the engineering corps, where ht
has been engaged for the past four years. This in the engin
eering corps of which H. A. Schmieding is chief, that made tht
connection between 38 slope and No. 9 shaft at Alderson soim
months ago, a distance of 8,000 feet. This survey could nol
have been more accurate than if it had been made on the sur
face. Mr. Thomas is a young man of steady habits annd clear
character. His candidacy is subject to the action of the demo-
cratic primary in August. Your consideration of his claims if
McAlester has just closed one of the most successful re-
vivals in the history of the city. This soul-winning campaigr
was waged on a different plan to that of the old-time union re-
vival. The difference consisted in each church conducting its
own meeting in its own way. The results show that the simul-
taneous revival has been successful in a very large measure, a?
a total of something over 400 conversions are reported. The
Methodist and Christian denominations sent away for evange-
lists, while the Presbyterians and Baptists conducted their owr
meetings. No matter what the system if the means employed
will produce the desired results—promote a better fellowship
elevate the moral tone and make people quit their meanness, it
is worthy of all commendation. We have a few old sinners
over here who need working over, and since we haven't had a
real trash-moving revival in some moons, what's the matter
with launching a religious campaign along the same line as
that tried out by our sister city.

THE BOARD OF AFFAIRS NEED NO VINDICATION.
In a debate last week in the Senate at Oklahoma City, over
the State Highway Law the-discussion had a wide rangv and in
the course of the debate tome of the speakers, admitting they
were partially inforjned as to the facts, made some strictures
of the alleged failure of the Board of Public Affairs to pro-
vide for working the convict? nn the public highways of the
State. Senator Thomas and others speaking from definite
knowledge shows conclusively that the Board was in no way to
blame, since the Legislature when it passed the Highway Law,
had made no appropriation of funds to enable the State Board
of Public Affairs to comply with the provisions of the bill for
distributing this convict labor to the various counties where
uch labor was desired.
The laws of the State make it a felony for any such officer
>r Board to create a deficiency and the Board of Public Affairs
:hus far has had its hands tied in trying to carry out the provis-
ory of the Highway Law. In a later debate it was admitted
hat the present Board of Public Affairs is made up of most
.areful, conscientious and capable business men who have al-
ready saved thousands of dollars to the people of this State,
ind proven that they possess efficiency of a high order and
:heir reports to the Legislature on the financial conditions ol
he institutions under their charge and all the work done by
:hem have received high commendation from every source. Be-
fore the end of the session it may be confidently expected that
ooth branches of the Legislature will feel called upon to pay
ligh tribute to the manner in which this Board has conducted
he important affairs entrusted to it.
TAKE IT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.
All kinds of reports are being sent out by correspondent-
>f daily newspapers at the State Capital to the effect that firs'
his house of the Legislature and then that, are seething with re
olt against the administration; ready to leave the reservation
ipposing Governor Williams, etc., etc., but it will be just a?
vvell for the average voter to take these readable bui alarming
itories with the proverbial grain of salt. No one can say jus'
jvhat will be accomplished in the present special session of th<
legislature, but it is a fair presumption from the past record o
;hat body that they will do the work which they were called t<
do, and do it in workman-like manner within a period of thirty
lays or thereabout. The majority in both houses is strong foi
doing the things that ought to be done, and the things that tht
Governor and the people of this State have asked, should b<
done when he Extraordinary Session was called, and the wist
man will not attempt to judge in advance nor will he believt
that men who have heretofore deserved the credit and confi
dence of the people of this State are going to throw away theii
own reputations by quarreling among themselves and fail to dc
the duty they were called upon to perform.
As a matter of fact, there is no conflict between the Gov
ernor and either house of the Legislature and there is no cor.
flict between the two houses. There are differences of opin
ion, honest and sincere, but these differences will be thresher
out as they usually are in leislative bodies, subjects will bt
earnestly debated and the final vote will show well digested anc
It is only necessary to point out that thus far every ar
>assed by this legislature in the regular session has been held b.
he courts to be constitutional, and good law, and with all du-
espect to the correspondents of certain daily papers, who mus
lave news even if they have to make it, the chances are all i;
.'avor of a short but most successful session of the legislature
PAY UP WEEK.
Some ingenious ^people have conceived the idea of a Na
tional Pay-Up Week, to be observed February 21-26, whei
everyone should be exhorted to pay his debts. The Americai
oeople need a little prodding on this point. They have a jo\
•us habit of throwing bills into the waste basket "that does no
>romote general business prosperity.
Not every one who lets his bills go unpaid is indifferer
About it. Many people would gladly pay all they owe, coul<
they collect the debts due them. But with many other persons
the more easily they could pay, the less ready they are to do it
It would make them very tired to sit down monthly and writ'
rff a dozen checks. By letting the bills run, they can do it a1
n one job. This saves them much liard work.' Yet they ma
lave idle money in banks.
Some business men allow bills to run to save a trifle c
interest, losing which would offend their thrifty souls. O
course the creditor is meanwhile losing interest. But creditor,
are considered grasping creatures who have all the monev the>

When you pay that long standing bill due the grocer, he is iir

So it goes.

If a general debt paying custom could be started during a Pay
Up Week, a great many people would feel a new courage abou
their business future. They would buy more freely. A wav
of new business would spread over the countrv. Let everyon
do what he can toward it.
PRESIDENT WILSON ON PREPAREDNESS.
New circumstances have arisen, President Wilson declared
Saturday in his Cleveland speech, which make it absolutely ne-
cessary that this country should prepare for adequate national
"We are in the midst of a world that we did not make and
c«pnot alter," the president said. "Its whole atmospheric and
physical conditions are the conditions of our own life also, and
therefore as your responsible servant I must tell you that the
dangers are infinite and constant.

sion if I did not go out and tell my fellow countrvmen that new
circumstances have arisen which make it adequately necessary
that this country prepare herself for war, not for anything that
smacks in the least of aggression, but for adequate national
America's improvident neglect to build merchant ships, the
president said in explanation, had left the country dependent
upon other nations to handle its commerce.
