AHENT THE STATE CAPITAL
The people of Altus and Jack-
son county will very largely vote
for Oklahoma City for the perma-
nent. location of the state capital,
jnat as they did when the question
<iame up the last time. It is large-
ly a matter of convenience, any-
how, and the voters will look at it
from that standpoint; although
the best interests of the state
«honld be the guiding influence in
--.anting the ballot for or against
.either town. With the capital lo-
eat.ed at Oklahoma City, it simply
tnettris one day saved to the peo-
ple of this end of the state in go-
ing and coming—a matter not to-
be overlooked in this age of hustle,
bnntle and high cost of living.
Hut aside from the question of
-convenience, what are the best in-
of the state? Oklahoma
City i* the logical point for it. It
i« more easy of access than Guth-
rie, or most any other place. It is
the wholesale (renter, to which the
ipeoplc of the state must go for
»,heir stocks of merchandise. It it»
an np to date, enterprising, ener-
getic city, in all that thp name im-
<ph**, with good hotels, theatres,

which go to make up a metropolis.

Jtnt it is tot the ptare for the state
<a^iUl. and many of the peopl* of
etathne term to look at this
Utr of iucaUoa ta aa enUrelv wroag
ight. The capital never did be-
long to Guthrie; it belongs to the
people, to locate where they will.
And, unless the Times is badly de-
ceived in all the signs, the people
will permanently locate it at Okla-
homa City, where it will in time
adorn the beautiful site just two
miles from the center of the city
which has been selected for it.
And it will be built without cost
to the people, too.
If there is a better, more effi-
cient, more accommodating and
agreeable railroad man in the
state of Oklahoma than C. O.
Jackson, division passenger agent
of the Frisco, a majority of the
people who travel on railroads in the
Southwest have never met him.
It has been the good fortune of
the Times man to have been
several trips with Mr. Jackson,
the most recent being the special
train which whisked Mr. Roose-
velt and his party of Bull Moosers
from Tulsa to Oklahoma City.
Mr. Jackson is always on the job
from the time the train leaves un-
til the destination is reached. He
looks after everything with an
eagle eye—not the smallest detail
is neglected. The care and com-
fort of his passengers is his first
consideration, and any reasonable
request, no matter what, is smil-
ingly granted. And withal, Mr.
Jackson is as watchful of his em

The newspaper fraternity in
Jackson county will cordially wel-
come back to the fold the firm of
Johnson & Hatch, who have pur-
chased the Eldorado Democrat
, from Thaeker Walker, who ha*
gone to Gould, where he will op-
erate a farm in connection with
the Gould News, which he hus re-
cently acquired. Messrs. Johnson
& Hatch formerly edited the Eldo-
rado Courier, selling the same to
_ i John Riley Thaeker, the present
owner, about two years ago. Both
arc bright, enterprising, popular
young men, and for their limited
experience good newspaper men;
and while their field is too small
1 for two newspapers, they will
I doubtless secure their share of the
j business. Eldorado will reason-
ably support one g(»od newspaper,
but not two. It is presumed that
Mr. Johnson will give his personal
attention to the paper, while Mr.
Hatch, who recently entered the
practice of law, will continue his
activities in that direction.

A Nervoua Woman Finda
Relief After Many Yeara
Women who suffer from extreme
nervousness, often endure much
suffering before finding any relief.
Mrs. Daniel Kintner, of Dcfiance,
O., had such an experience, regard-
ing which she nays:
"I had stomach
trouble wlion 1 w.is
eighteen years old
that broke down
my health, and for
years I suffered
tion and nervous

Many remedies are recommended
for diseases of the nervous system
that fail to produce results because
they do not reach the seat of the
trouble. Dr. Miles* Nervine ha»
proven its value in such cases »•
■uny time* that it is unnecesMry
to make claims for it. \ ou can

courtesies shown them, and the
Times knows of no one who has
more loyal, enthusiastic friends
among the press gang than he.
If appearances are to be be-
lieved, in many portions of Okla-
homa the standpat Republicans
and Progressive Bull Moosers have
"buried the hatchet" on state is-
sues, and are battling unitedly
against the common enemy. There
is no coalition as to national poli-
tics, however, and the respective
partisans of Taft and Roosevelt
will fight at the drop of a hat.
"Redeem Oklahoma from the
grafters" is the slogan, inspired
by an earnest, honest desire for a
new deal and a square deal all
around. And if the state is ever
redeemed from the gang of un-
scrupulous grafters who have
looted her treasury, ruined her
credit, increased taxation to an
unbearable, intolerable extent, and
scuttled the old ship of state until
she is waterlogged, the only hope
is in the Republican party. No
one ever heard of a political party
cleaning its own house, and Okla-
homa will not be the first to try
such an experiment. "Turn the
rascals out" should be the battle
cry all along the line, and wher-
ever a Progressive and a Republi-
can can work together peaceably,
side by side, to accomplish this
great end, Heaven knows there is
reason for harmony!
It is to be greatly regretted that
the resumption of through Bull-
man service from Elk City to Dal-
las over the Northwestern will pull
to the Texas metropolis a large
amount of wholesale business
which belongs to Oklahoma City,
and has heretofore gone there. It
is unfortunate that it requires at
least three days to do one day's
business in Oklahoma City, two
days of which must tie spent on
the train going and coming. I'n
der the new Northwestern »-h*dnle

A new commercial organization
for Altus, a young man's business
association, is proposed by one of
our enterprising spirits. His idea
is to limit the active membership
to men under .">0 years of age, but
to let the elders in as honorary-
members if they desire to join
The idea has some commendable
features. While we would not
deny the credit due to one of any
period of life, this is nevertheless a
young man's era, and it is the
young men of the nation who are
setting the pace. Take St. Louis
as an example. Not so long ago
St. Louis was a dead one—a "ha>
been" in the march of civic ac
complishment. Look at her today
—and she is in the very forefront
of progress. The young business
men of St. Louis did it, by organ-
ization. a willingness to dig up
and bear the burdens, and the de-
termination to put St. Ixiuis on
the map. Why can't Altus do
the same thing?
The men behind it
make it so.
Its large capital and
surplus makes it so.
The Oklahoma Bank-
ing Laws make it so.
