There is a non-partisan move on
foot in the county, the principles of
which are alleged to be based on
the court house proposition, a meet-
ing for which purpose is called to
meet in Mangum 011 April 19. f°r
the purpose of nominating a ticket
to oppose the legular nominees of
the democratic party for the several
county offices. We have seen a
petition on which were written the
names of 91 citizens, of the various
political faiths. This is purported
to be in the interest of
Washington dc»|>atchc» *ay
that Judge George Green is likely
to succeed Judge McAtce. We
hope not, Judge Strong is the man
for that place.

That was a grand speech of
President Roosevelt's at Charlston
last week; so full of genuine pat-
rotism and broad guage views.
The sentiments he expressed are
endorsed by every broad minded
and liberal citizeu of this great and
It Is gratifying to note that Presi-
dent Roosevelt did attend the
Charleston exposition, and that he
did present the handsome sword
donated by South Carolina to the
hero, Majar Micah Jenkins, and that
opinion to remain in the back
ground during the ceremonies.
The friends of w. B. Groves
have induced him to become a can
didate for the office of city council
man from the second ward. Mr
Groves is cashier of the Farmers
State Bank. He is a young man
of good business qualifications and
progressive ideas, and possessed of
pleasant and genial manners. He
will, 110 doubt, poll a large vote.
The report published last week
to the effect that the Chicago,
Rock Island & Pacific company has
bought the Choctaw, Oklahoma &
Gulf railroad and will add it to the
Rock Island system, has been con-
firmed, and the towns in south-
western Oklahoma are now wonder
ing whether the change will be ben
eficial to them, or not.

The president has made an
excellent selection for commissioner
of pensions in Eugene F. Ware, of
Topeka, Kansas. Mr. WTare is a
veteran of the civil war, an able
lawyer, and a man of high charac-
ter. His acceptance of the place
would insure its faithful and intel-
ligent administration. I11 some re-
spects there is no more difficult po-
sition connected with any depart-
ment in Washington,- but those
acquainted with Mr. Wrare's abili-
ties and record believe him- to be
rarely well qualified to assume the
arduous duties for which President
Roosevelt, 011 the strength of per-
sonal knowledge, has chosen him.
