Ouh prohibition friends, who
are under the tutelage and con-
trol of that truly good republi-
can, the Rev. r.affayette Norris,
are inquiring into the record of
each candidate cn all the tickets
to ascertain whether any one of
thetn has ever signed a petition
for saloon license and thev swear
by the great ham spoon that
they will not vote for such men.
Well, they can vote safely for
Danely, for county clerk, for it
is said ''he never done it."
Editor Dkmocrat:—I beg
space again to noticc the last ef-
lusion of the extremely young
and easy man of the Events.
At last the coon took to a tree
and there he is out on a limb.
He says of the banking system,
"Tis the best system the world
«versaw;"and admits the $20,-
000,009 steal but as an extinuat-
ing condition that the American
people are prosperous. Ye
Gods, what gobs of wisdom.
The young and fiimsy man
thinks that all the prosperity in
the U. S. is owing to the exis-
tence of the National banks.
Why you poor, deluded little
cuss! Were it not for the ener-
gy and pluck and industry of the
American people there would be
Ho $20,000,000to steal.
There is not a nation of people
on earth that can stand the
amount of stealing that we do
The National bank trust is
•nly one link in the monstrous
chain, endless chain, if you
please, that is robbing (lie peo-
ple. And this modem "Nero"
fiddles while crimes go unnoticed
by him or is condoned by him
and his ilk. Say, funny man,
do you really thiuk that the men
who compose the 6,000
tional banks ill the U. S.
really responsible lor the
crops and other evidence
thrift and enterprise?
The young fellow is screech-
ing about socialist scaring him
until his little soul is in mortal
fear of total annihilation.
Say. Events, if you are so op-
posed to socialism, why do re-
ceive your mail matter through
the postal system?
Why do you allow your child-
ren, if you have any, to attend
our free schools?
Why do walk on the sidewalk
or drive on the streets or public
highways? Why not have an
express company carry your
mail, a private teacher for your
children, a private walk and a
private overland road where you
could pay toll.
Nov/, Events, it: all honesty
and candoi*, t,! v do y i not in-
vi ■ :;;ate soci;:ii 11 nni attack it
An effort was made t« induce
Sam Catnpbsll to become a can-
didate for the council from
this district, but while he
would be a splendid representa-
tive he declines to accept
the honor. He was a candidate
for an office which be wanted
and was turned down and he
cannot now see his way to be
made a catspaw for those respon-
sible for his defeat. He has ac-
cepted his fate with manly resig-
nation and is entitled to be allow-
ed to pursue his ordinary vo-
cation as a farmer without be-
inp dragged further into the po-
litical arena by those who de-
liberately slaughtered him.
The good things they say
about him now were true before
they cut his throat in the late
A communication, signed
"Allison Twp. Rep. Com.," was
received this week and the editor
of this paper was requested to
publish the following which we
do most cheerfully:
Great disappointment was ex-
pressed at Oklahoma City, be-
cause Judge Garber, this county,
could not be present. "Is Mr.
Garber here?" "When will
• ubci' apeak?" "I want to hear
that young man Garber,"
"Pshaw! I was in hopes
Garber would speak; I wanted to
hear him." These and like ex-
pressions could De heard on every
hand, and it somehow made the
Hornet man proud of Garfield
county's farmer orator.
Thk reason alleged by the
would be purchasers of the wa-
terworks and sewer bonds some
time since voted by the council,
is that under the Oklahoma
statutes a two-third vote of the
"taxpayers" is required. A
special election will soon be call-
ed and unless two-thirds of the
taxpayers, as the tax rolls dis-
close. vote for the proposition, it
will be lost. No vote, for or
against such measure, will be
counted unless the voter is a tax-
payer, hence every owner of a
house or lot who wishes to see a
sewer and waterworks system
should get ready to vote and do
not forget to turn out.
It is urg'cd that the third term
idea cuts no figure in county af
fairs and that when a man has
made a good officer he should be
perpetuated in office. This ar-
gument leads up to the thought
that if a man has made a good
president two times
occasion to change him, and so
long as he continues good, keep
him in. If he satisfies the peo-
ple keep him and his family in
lor life and learn to reverance
him as your king and ruler and
continue to increase his salaVy
and emoluments until lie is an
imperialistic person. When you
argue such a thing with the
lower officers you prepare the
mind to accept it in the higher,
and thus if you make the units
unsound, the whole will be un-
A secret has crept out of Re-
publican headquarters somewhere
We are rejoiced to know that
they are bound to acknowledge
that if the democrats and popu-
lists vote straight, Bill Cross will
have close to 10,000 majority.
The polls were sent in from the
various counties of the territory
to the republican territorial
committee and private word was
sent out that the dickens was to
pay. These polls showed Cross
10,000 ahead. Stand by your
•lors, boys, and we'll knock the
As a sincere Bryan democrat,
we must urge the impropriety
and danger of perpetuating men
in even the minor offices.
This paper believes that
should support a democrat

This paper is like Bryan's
Commoner—it is opposed to the
third term from coroner to presi-
djnt. Third termism leads to
"Dyspepsia," wrota Eugene Field,
"often incapacitates a man for endeavor
and sometimes extinguishes tho firo of
ambition." Though great dospite his
complaint Field suffered from indiges-
tion all his life. A woak, tired stomach
can't digost your food. It needs
rest. You can only rest it by the uso
of a preparation like Kodol, which ro-
liovos it of work by digesting jour food.
Host soon restores it to its normal tone.

The Rock Island has done >t. The
desire* of the traveling public hare
been anticipated. An Observation
Pullman has been added to the equip-
ment of the "Colorado Flyer." This
new equipment has just been turned
out of the Pullman shops an4 it is the
best that can be secured. Rich in
upholstering, elegant in appointments
and comfortable and having all mod-
ern conveniences, reading room,
smokiog room, ladies parlor, etc., it
makes the Rock Island Colorado
Flyer the ideal train going to Colora-
With an ODservation Pullman, the
"Colorado Flyer," becomes pre-emi-
nently the best train to take between
Kansas City an-1 Colorado points.
Leaving Kansas City in the cool of
the evening, at 6:30 p. m., the traveler
can secure supper "A la carte" in
the dining car, view the beautiful
valley of the Kaw trom the observa-
tion parlor, enjoy a refreshing night's
rest, breakfast in the diner and reach
Denver at 11:00 o'clock in the morning
This is the fastest train to Colorado
arriving at Denver four hours earlier
than any other line. Returning, the
Flyet leaves Denver at 5:00 p. m., and
reaches Kansas City at 9:30 o'clock
the next morning. The ride through
Colorado in both directions being
made in the daylight, and in connec-
tion with the Observation Pullman,
will give the best possible advantage
of viewiug Pikes Peak and the Rocky
Mountains as well as providing i
most delightful ride.
BOARD OF TRADE.
This popular resort is now frcqnent.
ed more than ever. There is an
attraction about the wheat pit and the
option of all kinds of products that
men cannot resist. They sit for
hours as the ticker tells them every
fifteen mintues whether they lose or
win. Then there are refreshments of
all kinds to solace them for waiting.
The air fans are now in full running
order and it is the coolest place in
Enid. The breeze there takes all the
heat out of the hot man. Go there and
try it. Just east of the court house.
