Any account, however, of the

WHERE THE PRAISE BELONGS.
While the leading men of
Oklahoma and Indian Territory
have done most excellent and
strenuous work in securing the
great boon of Statehood, justice
demands that the greatest credit
and praise must be awarded to
our delegate, Hon. Bird S. Mc-
Guire. As our representative he
has fought every inch of the
road, working night and day,
using his persuasive powers and
his influence with congressmen
and senators, studying the
question in its every phase, and
doing his whole duty. The
Transcript congratulates him on
his great victory over seemingly
unsurmountable difficulties, and
congratulates the Territory upon
having such an earnest, vigorous
and able man as its represent-
SHFRLOCK HOLMES AGAIN.
A New Series of Detective Stories
In The Kansas City Star.
Conan Doyle's detective stories,
with the marvelous Sherlock
Holmes as their hero, have
achieved the greatest success of
recent years. Appreciating this
fact the publisher of Collier's
Weekly, New York, induced Mr.
Doyle to write a final series of
the great detective's adventures.
Repeated refusals were follow-
ed by increased inducements,
and finally Mr. Doyle agreed to
write thirteen stories for $45,
000, or about 60 cents a word.
The entire correspondence was
by cable. The amount paid by
Collier's is the largest ever paid
for such work and does not in-
clude the right to publish the
stories in book form. By special
arrangement with Collier's,
these famous stories are being
printed in The Kansas City Star,
one story each week, beginning,
in the daily addition, Saturday,
February 11, and in the Weekly,
Wednesday, February 15. None
of the present popular features
of The Star will be cut down or
omitted to make room for this
remarkable set of stories.
Practically the contents of a
$1.50 book will be added to the
contents of The Star, in three
months, without any increase of
the subscription price, 10 cents a
week for The Daily Star (morn-
ing, evening and Sunday, 13
complete papers a week), and
25 cents a year for The Weekly
