AlLklndi uf excitement hai "been rile
tha past week and Dullness has picked
up conalderabla alone the grade of the
B. M.&E. Railway. The Hobby"
hat not only been belching "hot air"
but a little thot and lead hai come U
way. Begins to look like the real thluR
"sure null " Tho trouble Rrew out ot
an attempt of the railway Rradert to
throw up tho grade aorost the farm of
John Mills who tetioutly objected ami
innk a few ihots In their direction
tic na they havo employed up to date
we fear they will come up sadly min-
ing. Their methods are rotten to my
the least and such actions are bringing
only condemnation and righteous In-
dignation upon their town. Fair
minded people aro (jetting utterly dis-
gusted and the repeated insults which
Forgan through first one and then
another continue to thrust at tho en
tire citizenship south of tho river is
getting to bean old story and is fast
giving that town a black oye from
which they will sutler more financially
BEAVER SCHOOLS SHOULD
The following is a plan under which
tho educational Interests of the) stat'o
fin teachers and children aronillstlrlg
In the patriotic movement to have an
exhibition at the Panama-Faclflo Ex-
position next year. '
A State Historical building Is soon
to bo built at the Capital of Oklahoma
The Oklahoma Panama Exposition
V mmlssion has arranged with the
Cleveland Vitrified Brick Company Tdr
80000 brick to bo placed in this His
torical building. On these brick tt U
proposed to mould the name ot any
person or institution that pays $D0Q
per brick to the Oklahoma Panama
Commission. Tho name moulded In
these brick will therefore be a part of
the Historical building and records of
The profits derived from this arrange
ment will be used by tho Panama Ex-
position Commission in providing for
the building and exhibit for Oklahoma
at the Exposition in San Francisco.
Under this systom It is planned to'
have the schools of the state represent-
ed by brick panels in tho State Histor-
ical building. Tho panel contains live
brick. All schools of the state are
asked to adopt this plan for represen-
tation in the State Historical ltu'ldirig
also to begin preparation immediately
for an Educational Exhibit at Sau
Teachers and pupils are all very en-
thusiasts in this matter wherever it
has been presented and they take
much pride In the ralslDg ot funds by
small contributions In this manner.
Frequently this li done by school en'
The funds for a 525.00 panel for each
school may bo raited by any method
you may decide upon. Tho name of
the school is to bo moulded upon the
panel which -vlll remain a monument
to their patriotism for all time in the
walls of our Stato Historical Building.
hy not the sohools of Beaver and
Boaver county take this up?
when they entered his promises adjtImn they nntcIpat0. That town has
cummonceiLworfc. W- A.Thompson
contractor In "harge produced a gun
and ordered Mills to cease firing which
he did. The workmen withdrew from
A little later E H Marvel consta-
ble of Forgan arrived on the scene
and arretted Mills and Thompson tak-
lng them to Forgan for trial before
Justice Meador. A writ of habeas cor-
put Tas issued for Tho.npson but the
Forgan officials refused to give him up
whereupon they were arrested on a
bemth warrant from the County Judge
and brought beforo that tribunal on a
'olmrge of contempt of court 'They
were found guilty Bnd lined the costs
of tho ease which amounted to about
' 110.00 or $12 00. Thompson appeared
'Wore Justice Meesn and plead guilty
""to'oarrylng concealed weapons. He
was fined $25.00 and costs.
..Mills was arrested on two counts
onn fnr nnlnttnt? n nun. and opfl for
shooting with intent to kill. He gavo
bond for his appearance for trial.
Altogether thlajs a bad piece of buM-
nets but the blame can bo laid In no
way at the door of tha promoters of
Beaver's Shou Line. In the first place
thov attemnted to make an amicable
settlement but being unable to agree
could do nothing further than proceed
"with tho work and through regular
process of law condemn the land and
pay such damages as the appruinerH
might determine. They had no desire
to over-ride tho rights of anyone and
only took such slept as were necessary
tn take to keen the construction work
going on uninterruptedly. Beaver rms
no desire to stoop to low fioky dirty-
work and thoe who Iihvh ilea'iii!S
with us will And that we won't do it
' either but we do know enough in lm t
after our own interest and do it di .
- oently If those who are opposing ihe
- building of the new railroad expect to
block the game by suoh.desn.i:aui. tac-
not shown the Hrst principle" of fair-
ness from the very beginning and we
expect nothing from them In future
except under-handed and treacherous
dealings dcsplto their protestations ot
'friendly feeling" and "moral sup-
port." It has been alleged that all
this double-dealing and dirty work It
tho maneuvering of s few Smart AIts.
Maybe so though we doubt It but
if that be the case isn't It about time
for tho sonslblo piople to assert them-
selves? If they do not approve of all
this why do they consent to It? For
our part we thiol; it is about ' six one
and a half dozen the other" and if we
were at tho head ot the thing we'd
simply tell tnom 'o "crack their whip "
