The press of the territory is
as far as we have noticed a unit
on the proposition of electing
or appointing a delegate to con-

feature seems-to be as to which
paper originated the idea. That
should be a matter of indiffer-
ence so long as the idea is a

Bryan's speeches don't amount
Mr. Bryan is now speeding
his way from New York where
on next Tuesday he will be
officially notified of his nomina-
tion as the democratic standard
bearer in the present campaign.
Those who are disposed to ridi-
cule his ability as a speaker and
a leader are respectfully invited
to keep their eyes on (the gun
for the next few days.
The Ardmoreite does not
question the proisition that
the cotton crop to find market
in Ardmore will fall short of
the estimate of a few weeks
since but that it will come
within the limit of a failure we
.are not ready to admit. From
actual observers who have
given the matter close attention
by making a tour of the coun-
try we are prepared to say the
yield will be above the average.
They have brought in stalks of
cotton from fields good bad
and indifferent and on striking
a general average the situation
is by no means alarming. After
a careful study of the situation
in its every phase we feel justi-
fied in the statement that all
things considered the outlook is
far from any occasion for
despondency. Farmers as well
as merchants have used caution
in seeking and giving credit and
even if present expectations
are realized the outcome will
place this country in a condition
of safety and independence.
We do not believe in crossing
the slough of despondency until
it has been reached.

containing Mr. and Mrs. Bryan

up fnm over a thousand throats.
From that time on until the train
pulled out anxious jieople jostled
