Mr. J. D. Moore, of Eldorado,
Oklahoma, has accepted a
position with Mr. W. R. Veale
as prescription clerk and will
take charge in a few days.
THE Eldorado Courier has a bunch of good ones this week
from which we clip the following:
"It is more fun to see a man read a puff of himself in a
newspaper than to see a fat man slip on a banana peel. The nar-
row minded man reads it over seven or eight times and then goes
around to appropriate what copies he can. The kind hearted man
goes around to the office and pays what he owes. The successful
business man, who advertises regularly and makes money by it.
immediately starts out to find the editor and the two walk silentlj
down the street, and the business man takes sugar in his and they
both eat a clove or two and life is sweeter and peace settles dowr
on their hearts for the moment. Such is the experience of a mu5-
tard seed that falls on different ground."
"If a newspaper says something which steps on some man s
foot a little, that man will perhaps go around to the office and give
the editor . Now the proper thing to do would be to give
thanks just alK)ut three times a day for what the editor knew but
More Worlds Fairs
THE Boston Herald certainly believes in "taking time by the
forelock." They are announcing the holding of a World's
Tercentennial Exposition in Boston in 1920, or just eleven
vears from today, in commemoration of the three hundredth anni-
versary of the landing of the Pilgrims and the founding of New-
England. It is said that the proposed exposition will be on a scale
of magnificence commensurate with such an important event as
the landing of a bunch of seasick, sourfaced and sorrowful pilgrim
Puritans on the slippery and sea-slapped Plymouth Rock on the
cod fish coast and the founding of the American republic Well it
ought to be a hummer to properly commemorate an event of such
world-wide interest and importance and every American should
lend a hand to make the event a success and properly celebrate
the fact that our fore-fathers had nerve enough to "buck" when
the yoke got too heavy and the Enterprise begs to assure the bean
eating bunch that if we manage to escape the penitentiary and
the grave for ten years more, we will be there with both feet but
we cannot help contrasting the pokey deliberateness of the slow-
going East with the snap and hustle of the West and the spirit
that is shown by the people of Seattle who jump up an affair of
this kind in about three months. Well Boston may be slow but it's
dollars to doughnuts that she will be plum good and ready on the
day set and th« show will be a "humdinger" too.

Law or Lawlessness
THAT William Jennings Bryan has ideas of his own anent the
United States going into partnership with crime and aid-
ing, abetting and encouraging local law violations is evi-
d ncec by the following from the Commoner:
"Tne republican party has long boasted of being the party of
"God and morality;" it has had the support of a large majority of
the ministers and religious pa^rs, and it has constantly charged
the democratic party with being an ally of the saloon and in league
with lawlessness. The time has come to put it to the test.
The republican party is in absolute control of the federal
g .vernment. It has the president, the senate and the house. It
c n pass any laws that it wants to pass and repeal any laws that
it wants to repeal. The federal government is today issuing
licenses for the sale of liquor in territory where the local authori-
ties have prohibited the sale. In several states the sale of liquor
is prohibited by statute, in a number of states its sale is prohibited
in a majority of the counties, and in all of the states it is prohibit-
ed in many villagts, towns, cities and precincts. But in spite oi
the attempt of local authorities in these districts to prohibit the
sal - of liquor as a beverage, the federal government continues to
issue licenses in contemptuous disregard of local sentiment and
local law. The government receives $25 for each license, and in
receiving the money it must either intend to collect that sum with-
out giving anything valuable in return (in case the one receiving
the license does not sell liquor) or to encourage the one receiving
the license to violate the local law, for he can not use his license
without violatieg the law. Can the federal government afford to
continue a partner with the law! reakers? Can any party afford
to longer legalize this partnership?
A democrat, believing in local self-government and in the right
cf each community to attend to its own affairs, can consistently
oppose the action of the federal government in thus overriding the
laws of slates, counties and communities.
It matters rot whether a person favors prohibition or opposes
v he ought to be in favor of the enforcement of law whether that
law suits him or not. Popular government rests upon respect for
law, and nothing is more calculated to cultivate disrespect for law
than this action cf the federal government in not only ignoring the
wishes of the people in various localities, but in actually reaping a
profit from the is-rne of licenses which stimulate law breaking.
Now, while the tariff bill is before congress, it will be an op-
portune time for the democrats to propose an amendment to the
internal revenue part of the Payne bill prohibiting the issuing of
federal licenses for the sale of liquor in states, counties or com-
munities where the sale is locally prohibited."
