FROM WALL 8TRKP.T -Ph... _______
MANCHESTER GRANT COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, AUG. 21, IW8.
FROM WALL STREET.
Tune-Star Spangled Banner.
Beware of the trusts, that our burdens would bear;
Are they generous and true, can their motives be fair?
We have known ihun for years grown hoary with time;
Corrupting our set vants regardless of crime.
Oh! let Sheldon come forth with Wall Street Support :
But honest men all be deaf to his *-ouri;
When the millions of Wall Street win honor his draft,
There is no use deying,they’ve a promise from Taft.
Shall elections be held with the ptople supreme,
Or the almighty dollar make honors dream.
The people have tolled, producing the crop,
While Wall street has robbed them from bottom to top.
America prospers most naturally true,—
But shall labor divide where nothing is due?
The system of Wall Street In frenzied finance,
With millionaires made, not by labor but chance.
With Bliss, Cortelyou, and Geo. Perkins too,
Prying fat from the leeches, who stole it from you,
With millions corrupt, wrought our Bryan’s defeat,
Watch them close now, I say, they will try to repeat.
Corruption ne’er aided the patriots way,-
If Its fighting we’ll fight,-If Its paying we’ll pay.
Take back Mr. Sheldon, your ill gotten fryin,
The people will pay for electing our Bryan.

There was Quite an enteresting race
on Thursday of last week between a
Santa Fe excursion train and a Reo
touring car auto from Harper to
Kingman, a distance of about 36 miles.
It was the Journal’s car that made

would like to get by and get a little
start of him, he got on his engine and
cleared the track and the auto went
on and was a mile out of town when
the train left the station. He had
but four loaded coaches, and as the
auto encountered two or three miles
or bad roads on the way to Rago the
train was first into the station and was
again standing across the public high-

will tell you: Palmer has been an ad-

since the Democratic party fathered

it-that is until now. But things have
changed now, and Palmer must shut
up. He holds a government position

become necessary that he keep mum

on the Santa Fe. The people were
quite well educated, the man being
an expert photographer who con-
ducted a studio in his home city in
Russia (the name of the town was too
much of a jawbreaker for us to re-
member) and was amply provided
with means to make the long journey
from his native land to this country.
They were nine weeks on the road
and their recital of the inhuman
treatment they received in Castle
Garden and the unwarranted deten-
tion at that place for over four weaks,
and final release of the family, and
ordering the others, a brother and
his wife and the aged mother of the
men, to be returned to Europe on
account of the old lady’s advanced
age, was a pathetic and almost In-
creditable story. The family had
evidence of controlling property to
the value of about $13,000, and it
appeared to us, after hearing the
story of the man that a big hold-up
was contemplated by unscrupulous
immigration officers. There is some-
thing very rotten in the management
of the immigration bureau at New
York, and if only part of the story of
these immigrants is true the place is
a disgrace for the American nation.
The case will be reported to the
Russian authorities and we may hear
about it later on. The people are

The officers of the Citizens State
Bank were more than pleased Monday
last when they received checks in full
from the Northwestern Fire and

of loss sustained by farmers in this
vicinity as a result of the big hail
storm last May and who had their

The adjuster who came after the
storm to adjust the losses was very
liberal in his adjustments, and every
man who insured In this company
through the Citizens State Bank as
their agent, is well pleased.
