GOOD THING FOR DEMOCRATS.
If Secretary William Grimes desired to make
it impossible for the republicans to elect any
man to congress, and very few to any county of-
fices, the recent syndicate newspaper attack upon
various members of the party, put in motion by
him, is a most wise and adroit thing to do. The
democrats are enjoying his game hugely. They
give it out as a piece of party confidence that it
is no longer denied to be Mr. Grimes scheme to
so break up the republican unity, since he can-
not wrest the party leadership out of the hands
of those who have it, so that no republican con-
gressional nominee can be elected. This heroic
work is said to be necessary in order that he and
Flynn may come in somewhere when statehood
comes. The democrats in his confidence give it
out cold that he and Flynn are doing and will do
everything they can to prevent McGuire getting
statehood in order to discredit the republican
party under hii leadership. They had rather do
this and afterwards attempt to bring it in them-
selves than to let him ride on the crest of state-
hood into further party leadership that they fear
would carry him and his friends in control of the
new state and let them out.
To do this it is necessary not only to discredit
McGuire, but knock Governor Ferguson out of
the box. Ever since he has been governor they
have been trying to get him into some such trap
as they got Governor Jenkins, disgrace and kick
him out. Here and there they have taken ad-
vantage of his administration financially, so that
whatever mistakes and shortcomings the people
attribute to it are due to them, and yet they are
not satisfied but are attempting to drive him
For weeks the democratic press of the terri-
tory has been loaded with purported republican
secret troubles. This was all due to the fact that
Governor Ferguson has never countenanced fac-
tionalism to the distance of going over to them
soul and body. Probably the Governor has
ringing in his ear the President's command: 'Go
back to Oklahoma and if you find Grimes has
asylum stock, I shall not appoint him secretary."
The democrats ought to be very happy these
days. They have never known how to make po-
litical medicine Hnd have always failed. Mr.
Grimes, after burdening the republican party
with whatever the people object in its adminis-
tration of affairs, now shows them how to pre-
vent the p irty being successful under other lead-
ership. The democrats snould help Mr. Grimes
all they can in his laudible undertaking.

General Miles has suggested that the Massa*

and cocked hats. This personal adornment
would naturaliv suggest in the case of firearms
clean breeches and cocked hammers.

now dragged to war, as an ox is lead to slaugh-

HOW MANY UNKNOWN SOONERS
One would like to know how many "sooner"
s ttlers are stiI■ holding down farms in Oklahoma
who have never been found out, and how they
f el. Do thev ever feel a guiitv conscience when
they think that by sneaking into the territory the
n g'ht before the day the legal proclamation to
m ike a "run." or tr im within territory forbidden
b/ the proclamation, thev no>v live on a fine
ho nestead worth from $3,000 10 Sio.ooo, while
t ie honest man. who respec.ed the laws of his
CJitntry, failed to get one because a thief in the
nijiht had got ahead and settled upon it lias
tie years of op ■ 11 or ta.it ! v ing, while in al!
o'.tier respects passing amowg their neighbors for
h morable men, taken the pleasure from thes •
' toners'* in sufficient quantity to have made
t , ,r dishonest belongings bilrn in their hearts
l ,Ke the sto.en lime 111 the bosom of the boy as it
slicked when swim ning the river?
Oil.: would like to know bv what process of
reasoning a man coming into possession of a
f.inn against the law convinces himself it is not
as much stealing ts ti< 1 horse in the nigh t
out ot his neighrjor s Darn. 1 here is, after all, no
permanent standard of conscience, if these men
uo not teel its prickings; some of them have un-
doubtedly sat on juries since then and tried th.ir
fellowmen fjr lesser wrongs—wrongs that h*ve
entailed less misery on those who have suffered
loss by them.
Rt cently the Interior Department, after thir-
teen years of litigation, has decided several farms
west from Ponca City to several "sooners" who
ran into the Cherokee Strip from the Chilocco
Reservation, while their contestants, observing
the proclamation, ran from the Kansas line.
This decision on its face looks like an injustice.
But all over Oklahoma, along the choicest val-
leys are "sooners" who came in the night before
their neighbors, and who now raise their voices
in church and school, and lift their eyes for the
blessings of heaven, and one wonders if the}-
ever get a stitch in their side while doing it.
The last supper is proverbially fatal. May not
the last dinner be? There is many a Judas' slip
'twixt the political cup and the lip.

The East will take notice that is is no longer
drouth but floods that threaten Oklahoma. This
is no longer an arid but a flood-srricken region.
Let the calamity howler no longer cry "Oh, the
parched plains," but "Oh, the flood-swept val-
leys." Oh, the rain, rain, rain! Will the Lord
temper the rain to the soaked land!

The great success of the Inter-Territorial
Bankers annual convention at Muskogee was
largely due to H, W. Painter, secretary of the as-
sociation, who has worked on it ever since before
the holidays last winter. No details were over-
looked to join in friendship the bankers of the
two territories. The result for joint statehood
and the business relations that banks more than
other institutions create, is very great from the
meeting of such leading men as gathered in an-
nual session at Muskogee.

WHICH IS HAPPIER?
The question is being asked the noted authors
of the country—both men and women—"Who
has the better time, a manor a woman?" And
the authors—neither men nor women—are able
to answer the question.
What do Oklahoma women think about it?
The Register thinks they know just as much
about the matter as anybody, and would like to
hear from them. Indeed the equation of the
sex is such that they are eternally shifting posi-
tions, each to accommodate itself to the other,
to keep in balance, and if either has the worst of
it at any time, it is more apparent than real. In
fact one condition appears to have been better
or worse in contrast to another condition, but
must have been just what the sex wanted at the
time, or it could have had it different. If this
is not true, what becomes of the uncontroverted
opinion that all a man is or has is for the appro-
bation of some woman, and the woman's whole
existance is an endeavor to be a delight to man.
Social conditions change eternally and sex re-
lations change with them. A glimpse at our own
history, beginning with the civilization of our
b trbaric forefathers in Europe, snows women have
held three distinct atitudes towards men. When, in
tribal wars, he was mostly warrior for the pro-
tection of his kind, woman did most of the labor.
This brute period was followed by the Romance
period in which, having specialized woman for
individual instead of tribal ownership, the tend-
ency was to the other extreme of locking her up
in his castle and revering her as a possession for
aUhetic pleasure alone. This artificial concep-
tion has been gradually giving way, and now the
distinctive tendency is for an equilibrium of the
sexes—a rational companionship and participa-
t on in all the activities of life. The present
struggle is for an intullectual equality. Woman
desires no longer to be merely a beast of burden,
a raiser of children only, a sentimental ornament
f >r man to keep in luxury in accordance with his
o.vn ideas, but an intelligent companion in all of
the phvsical and intellectual pursuits. Slie does
not want man to regulate his own sex affairs and
hers also, leaving her in ignorance whv he wishes
her to uo certain things; she des res to know
why she wishes certain things herself, and also
why he wishes them In other words, she no
longer desires man to do all the thinking for
both, but desires to share the thinking frr e t er
But as to which has the b< s: time—that is the
same character of question as "Is it more blessed
t> give than to receive? '
Fisher and Fisher, editors of the Carnegie
Herald, say: "Tuesday evening at the school
hsuse, Miss Laura Gregg of Omaha, nation.*] or--
ganizer for the women suffragists, lectured- to?
tin people of this vicinitv. Miss Gregg is a
p disiud talker, and has a fine pronunciation and
a ticulation, and in fact she is a trained elocu-
tionist and interested her audience by her elocu-
tionary efforts, but did not give one solitary rea-
son to an unprejudiced mind why the right to
vote and hold office should be extended to
women." We venture to say both these gentle-
men would not dare to make that statement on
a platform and give that excellent lady a chance
tosho,v them the folly of their way.
