To Fund Indebtedness and
Build Schoolliouse — Tax-
payers Are Asked
The school hoard held an ad-
journed meeting Monday night at
President Rummons' office, and
decided to ask the taxpayers to
vote 011 a $21,000 issue of twenty-
year 0 per cent bonds for the pur-
pose of funding the outstanding
indebtedness of running the
schools for the past year and for
erecting one good permanent
school building. Owing to the
large increase in the number of
pupils attending the schools the
board has found it necessary to in
crease the force of teachers as
well as the room for handling the
Ice Cream Supper.
The people of the Mount Zion
schoolliouse, on Elk avenue, will
give an ice cream social Friday
night, at t> o'clock, the proceeds to
be used for the purpose of paying
for an organ to be used by the
Sunday school at that place.
Won by Anadarko.
The game of ball played last Sun
day between the Hobart arid Ana-
darko nines attracted a large and
enthusiastic crowd i f fans to the
fairgrounds. The game was close
from start to finish. The score was
6 to 5. Batteries—Hobart—Mur-
pliy and Rlcker; Anadarko—El
kins and Hewitt.
The Ladies' Aid Society of the
First Presbyterian church will give

Its Now "Dog Eat Dog"—
Gov. Ferguson's Private
The last republican sensation is
the bring of Governor Ferguson's
private secretary, Mr. McHrian, of
Blaine county. It has developed
that McBrian once upon a time pre-
ferred charges against a brother re.
publican probate judge of Blaine
county, and, as might l>e expected,
easily succeeded in having him
boosted from office, McBuan then,
with the gratt characteristic jf a re-
publican politician, proceeded to
have himnelf appointed, and now it
has developed that McBrian himself
is guilty of the same conduct that
brought his republican predecessor
to grief. It seems that the air of
Oklahoma politics is laden with the
•tench and corruption of republican
official Doodling. Hardly a day
passes but that that some of the
brethren are called upon the carpet
to account tor their misdeeds and
short comings, aud these charges
invariably emanate from brethren
of the same political stripe. Will
this state of affairs ever cease to
exist in Oklahoma politics?
How long? Oh, Lord, how long
will the good people oi this politi-
cal bedridden territory be com-
pelled to endure the vile and con-
temptible graft of repnblican politi
cal buccaneers? Are there no hon-
est men in the republican party in
Oklahoma? If there is, then in the
name of deccncy and for the welfare
of this fair territory let them be
turned into the political pastures
and entrusted with the public af-

In Kentucky — particularly in
Frankfort—where the democratic
anu republican voters almost tally
and where city elections are always
won in a drive—it is the earnest
desire of every right-thinking par-
ent-prospective to increase the
number of voters. It is therefore
with dire misgivings that people in
Frankfort note the alarming num-
ber of firl babies and the remark,

The large proportion of girl ba-
bies exists among the republioani as
well as the democrats, and if there
is an interposition of providence i$
seems to be politically impartial.
"Nothing less than a dscree of
providence in Kentucky affairs
could be absolutely free from poit-
ical bias," said an eminent lawyer
in discussing the baby question on
the steps ot the senate building a
short time ago.
The fact remains that in Frank-
