For Public Weigher
W. R. PROOK
In launching his campaign lor
the Democratic nomination fpr
Governor, L. P. Ross made vari-
ous and sundry charges against
the Democratic press of the
State, stating that aoout seventy-
five per cent of the Democratic
papers in Oklahoma were subsi
dised and would not tell the
truth about Democratic rotten-
ness in Oklahoma. This state-
ment was picked up by an Okla-
homa City Socialist publication
of the bitter, howling, revolution-
ary sort, and given wide publici-
ty over the state. Seeing the
crowd his denunciatory utter
ances have put him in, Mr. Ross
is now busy denying his state
ment. The Industrial Demo-
crat, his organ of denunciation,
should be his organ of denial.

ARE WE READY>
If the work on the railmau
goes forward as rapidly as it is
going at the present time, it will
not be more that sixty days until
Hollis will be a railroad town.
The question that now confronts
us is, Are we ready lot- h'' The
cominer of the railroad will bring
many changes. Are we ready
for the m? The people of Hollis , otry of

be ready for it? These are ques
tions it wo'ild be well for all our
citizens to consider. Before

problems various and vexed—
Usually the most radical man
in the community is the man
who boasts most of his conser-
vatism. He suits before i.nposi

Adam's apple, and tai<es refuge
in ail sp-'ttUing silence. This he
interprets as fair-mindedness,
as opposed in the intolerant big
ithers. He thinks little,
Ue walks with re
verted eyes, "like those fabled
monsiSis," and in mournful
plaint hums the weird hymn of

keep people from taking up with

gram If they knew, they
would renounce the whole busi-
ness. The agitators who visit
the country present only the
specious features of the rotten
system. When it becomes known
that Socialism has been intimate-
ly associated with anarcnism,
atheism, communism and free
lovisin in all the nations of earth, |
the decent element of American I
citizenship will put it out and
down, so far as this country is
concerned. We venture the as-
sertion that there is not one of
their number in Harmon county
who can tell us when, where and
how International Socialism
originated, who are and have
been its staunch supporters, and
what it proposes to do. We have
too much faith in the American
fee, tea, beer and wine. The
brewers and saloon owners are
greatly pleased with the patron-
age so far given to this saioon
and propose still other institu-
tions of like character in the
great city. The bishop also is
highly pleased with his remark-
able success in finding a resting
p ace for London's working peo-
ple— a' place where they can rest
and gossip and spend their mon-
ey for evening lunches, beer aud
wine. How much better would
it have been for this bishop to
found a club where working peo- mvwWWWwwvwwvw*

pose of reading improving their |
mental and social condition, and
learning lessons of industry,
temperance and frugality. Wee

Mark Twain is dead. In many
respects he was a remarkable
character. He hated sham afid
hypocracyin all walks of life and
in his writings took sundry shots |
at the affected, unreal life of so
ciety. He began as a tramp

ranked probably as the world's

he was once asked who was the
greatest American, and his re-
