The first mayor of the best city
in the Indian Territory says Ard-
more's people can make their city
a hummer by united action by
simply pulling together.
The trial of John Collins at To-
peka Kan. who is charged with
the murder of his father has been
in progress a mouth and will last
about two weeks more.
The Abdmoreite's Christmas
edition will be a hummer the man

Let all your new resolves be for
good resolve to say all the good
things you can do all the good
you an encourage all the good
you can and bring all the good
things you can for your town.
Ardmore' s prospects for great-
ness brighten every hour. Great
evedts in the history of our city
are now smoldering and will burst
forth in full power and the man
who said "I told you so" will be
We believe the majority of
Southern people would prefer to
look after their relatives and
friends in the old honest wav they
have been doing without burden-
ing the government with any more
pension claims and in this prefer-
ment the government should not
deprive them of their privilege.
A bill has been introduced by
Senator Marion Butler as an
amendment to the pension appro-
priation bill to have the pension
law apply to every invalid soldier
widow minor child dependent
relative and all other pensioners
without . regard to whether said
soldier was in the Federal or Con
federate service. It won't pass.
The Washington Post says
The attitude of the Demosratic
party indicates that it will have
two tickets in the field in 1900.
Olney and Wheeler would make a
fine team for the expansionists
and as the Princeton man is the
pioneer anti-expansionist Cleve-
land and Bryan ought to make a

What's the matter with Ard-
more's lumber dealers? Our Oak-
land correspondent says three-
fourths of the lumber used at that
place is hauled from Denison and
adds the Ardmore lumber men
may know why. Without con-
sulting any of our lumber men in
the matter the Ardmoreite suspi
cions the close proximity to Christ-
mas has a great deal to do with
parties making trips to Texas now. j
ilNQLE STATEHOOD SCHEME.
Interest. a Gossip From Waahlnfttoa
Cafrccraiag the Twin Territories.
From Washington there comes
the announcement that ihe Repub
lican party is in favor of single
statehood for the two territories.
A prominent Republican of this
citj was interviewed on this sub
ject. He stated that he did not
know how to account for the posi-
tion which Dennis Flynn is alleged
to occupy. Mr. Flynn has always
been considered a double statehood
man in fact he has avowed it on
many occasions public and private;
under the contemplated assimila
tion however Mr. Flynn is to be
given carte blanche in appoint-
ments for both territories this it
is thought will win him to the sin
gle statehood idea. Then John I
Dille is a Republican with aspira-
tions. He it is who is looking for
ward to the senatorial toga and in
his ambition he has it is stated
intimated that as a colleague no
one would be more preferable than
Hon. W. II. H. Clayton of this
city the present judge of the cen
tral district. While Judge Clay
ton is not avowedly a single state
hood man yet it is known that he
has not favored the double state
hood idea. When the bar assoeia
tion passed resolutions here a year
ago opposing the movement for a
double territory association he did
not sign the call and he' has ap
proved of the bill adopted by the
bar association of Ardmore con
templating the establishment of a
supreme court for the two territo
Christmas carols will soon be
sung over Ihe land and the heart.-
of all will be gladdened by Christ
mas festivities. Santa Claus is in
our city and ready to greet you in
every business house you enter.
He is a rich old man and has
clerks everywhere. The Ard
moreite advertisers tell vou where
he can be found.

The Aden Case.
It was thought the examination

would be completed this morning.
This trial it is said has brouerht
out the fact that there are places
in effete Gainesville where they

"banks" and "tables" etc. in
fact it shows that gambling houses
are run wide open in that Chris-
tian city under the nos of the city
government and others who until
now were not aware of such a
Joe Maytubbi superintendent of
the Chickasaw schools is in the
city today. Mr. Maytubbi is re-
calling all the scholarships au-
thorized by the Chickasaw Nation
paying tuition of such pupils in
schools in the states. The bill
passed by the legislature the other
day cancelling these tuitions in
schools outside of the Nation is
the reason for his action Denison
