Bert Greer and Col. Douglass have
a big fight on. Bert is giving Doug
hades down here and Doug is raising
Cain at the national capital. Each
of them seem to enjoy their way of
doing things and as it hurts nobody
down here all is well.
There are 100000 non-citizens or
state negroes in the Indian Territory.
Tills class of people will play an Im-
portant part in the future of the Territory.
The Prohibitionists are
heaven and earth and h
capture the new state and some say
they have a show for success.
v The president of the United States
is desirous of seeing the Oklahoma
and Indian Territories as one state.
Now that does settle the matter.
Poor old Arkansas can cuss and wait
or wait and cuss it is all the same.
There are some fellows who are
now candidates for members of the
constitutional convention and who
have goten on a turkey gobbler
strut and are swearing by the gods
that they will be "it" or no one shall.
We hope to see some bright intelli-
gent negro from this place a delegate
In that convention. We are not and
will not be a candidate. We are anx-
ious to assist the deserving candidate
but under no consideration will we
support a swell-headed conceited
b'roken-down political hack from
for the place.

Embryo candidates for state offi-
ces and congress are doing some
splendid side-stepping at this stage
of the game and the fellows who
fought the proposition of a negro be-
ing on the Territory executive com-
mittee will do some back-stepping
and double suffling in the near future.
If the Republicans piss the state-
hood bill now before congress (and
they will) there will he a warm time
down in this neck of the woods from
.Inn. 1 l!)0f to Dec. Ill of the same
The revenue politicians who work-
ed the dear postofilce applicants to a
finish are now looking around for
more victims. They scent the battle
afar and are even now getting in
trim to skin the (spring chickens)
those who are ambitious to run for
city offices. (The poor candidate has
our commiseration.)
The Muskogee Republican club rep-
resents the organizations of the Re-
publican party in this city and vi-
cinity and the sooner the crazy mi-
flts who ate parading themselves as
Republicans find th's out the better
It is a shame and a disgrace that
the people at Wybark do not come
forward and assist the officers in
bringing the lawbreakers to justice.
It is a bad state of affairs when men
and women will commit perjury rath-
er than that a confirmed scoundrel
should be. punished. That commun-
ity will always bear a hard name
until the change from protecting
criminals in their devilish crimes.'

'Port Arthur up to this writing
has not fallen. Those- gallant de-
fenders are heroes and will go down
in history as such. Our sympathy
is with the Russians hocause "They
were our friends when the world
was our foe."
The president stands pat on the
appointment of Dr. Crum as collect-
or and it is up to the senate to con-
firm him. Democrats of the Tillman
stripe are cussing and hoping that
ilie senate will not confirm the ap-
pointment. The time will come and is now at
hand when folWvs who are so anx-
ious and do run b fore a notary pub-
lic to make affidavits will wish they
had not done fo. We advised one
cuss to keep off but he blindly ran
into it.
Miss Alice Robortson has boon ap-
pointed postmistress at Muskogee.
This ends the fight for the post office
pud the parties concerned must bow
in submission to the power that is re-
sponsible for the appointment. Miss
Robertson will make 'a good official
and oven if she can't vote is a good
Republican. "All's well that onds
well." We congratulate Miss Rob-
ertson on. her success.
The colored people of Muskogee
vbo claim that there are several fac-
tions among our people and that we
cannot get together for that reason
are mistaken. There are no factions
among the real race men. There may
be a few sap-headed office seekers
who desire to have such conditions
to the front. Wo desire to say there
Is no Twine faction because we are
not a candidate for anything in sight.
We are with the boys in the tronches
and the position is satisfactory to us.
