PUSH GOOD C'TY GOVERNMENT.
Every Indication lc that tin Citizens

but safetv from the old rule of ex-
travagance and loot lies only In vigi-
lance and work for the Citizens'
ticket. The new men on the old
t'rket liae behind them the same old
push that built the lateral sewers and
engineered th.ngs In the past and
there t nothing to hope for In contin-
uing their grip.
They have the same old monkey'
face on the cocoanut turned to the pub-
lic with the meat and the milk behind
them on the Inside of the shell. Time
and aagaln the people at election time
have listened to the siren sounds of
the chief organ grinder and as often
received Cottonwood sand for granu-
A good capable business adminis-
tration by competent and able city of-
ficers Is what is needed now and what
the city must have to rise to Its legiti-
mate position as the capital city of the
territory With Dr. Duke as mayor
supported by such an able and effici-
ent lot of offlceis as those on tlio

"SCOOPS" OF EVENING PAPERS.
The great bulk of fresh news Is serv-
ed by the evening papers all over the
world. Thla is especially true in this
part of the country. The reason Is
not that the morning papers are less
enterprising but that they work at a
disadvantage in regard to much the
larger portion ol the news.
In this part of the country the major
portion of the news comes from the
Bast and the difference la time is on
the side of the evening papors thus
enabling them to get tho day's news
from the Best at tho close of tho busi-
ness day and servo it at tho supper
table of the Middle Wost
Happenings at Now York Boston
and Washington at the closo of the of-
ficial day aro in the evening papors
ready for the. "businue man in tho
West vhart his office Is closed. The
Ontiro happenings of the day in all
KuWpean events aro ready for tho
evening papors of the United States
owing to the dlfforenco in timo. i
The superiority of the evening pa-
pers was never so clearly demonstrat-
ed as during the war in Manchuria
where the entire happenings of each
day arrived here in time to go into the
evening papers leavins merely a re-
hash and some belated details for use
in the morning papers. The evening
papers have simply reveled in a suc-
cession of "scoops."
While this is true In the matter of
t legraph service it is equally true in
the matter of local service. A perusal
of tho Leader will give a dally demon-
stration of the fact. The local and per-
il jnal items of the day are very nearly
all available for the evening service
and the Leader spares no pains or ex-
pense in obtaining them. This is not
necessarily due to lack of enterprise
on the part of morning papers but a
natural advantage in time of iseuo
which the Loader by Its enterprise has
turned tp its advantage.
(New York World )
Twenty one divorces tn three hours
and forty seven minutes should equal
the Dakota record. Although only one
cause exists for divorce in New York
the local divorce courts have no lack
of occupation It is clear that almost
all these cases are by consent. There
14 no opposition or consent no alimony
asked and both parties are taking the
easiest and cheapest way to throw off
the boncU of matrimony The hus-
bands regard it as no disgrace but I
rather as a proper matrimonial cour-
tesy fur them to furulsh the evidence

It is frequently contended that
j exigencies arise wh'ch were not fore-
! teen by the legislature snd that ad-
minlstratlve officers chould have the
right to determine when such exigen
1 cies arise. To concede the point ia to
open wide the purse strings of the
territory and invite the administrative
officers to help themselves.
If th's is the desirable policy the
law ought to say so Instead of declar-
ing as does the Organic Act that all
monies expended from the territorial
treasury must be in pursuance of an
appropriation made by the legislature
In practical effect there is a very
narrow and worthless distinction be-
tween creating the lndebtednefs and
spending the mon In each case the
taxpayers foot :h till.
It ustd to be contended that the
count le would go to ru.n if warrants
could not be issued or Indebtedness
crested in excess of the levy but ex-
perience has shown that the law limit-
ing the power of county officers was
the miration of county finances. Prior
to Its passage every county in the ter-
ritory was piling up Indebtedness In
reckless disregard of the levy. The
limiting act proved the salvation of
the counties. Why is not tha doc-
trine a good one for the territory? It
is and should bo.
COLD NERVOUS TREMORS.
The fate or the boodlers in St.
Louis will by no means be reassuring
to the Standard OH officials who now
seem to bo engaging tho attention of
the attorney general of Missouri. This
officer has spoken some very ominous
words as shown by the following dis
patch. ( t
J Herbert S. Hadley attorney gen-
i cral for Missouri eald today that he
J has evidence that will show thut the
I Standard Oil company has flpgrantly
violated the Mlssouil anti-trust law.
Three companies said Mr. Hadle
control 95 per cent of the oil trade in
I Missouri The Standard controls the
other companies named. In violation of
tne ant: trust law of the state. The
three companies ore no more Inde-
pendent of each other than would be
three grocery stores owned by the
same man "
When it is recalled that the St.
Louts -Mtturney responsible; for the
present manual labor being performed
by the St. Louis boodlers is now gov-
ernor of Missouri and the power be-
hind the attorney general it Is enough
to make that cold creeping sensation
traverse the spinal columns of the
Standard's officers and promoters.
If Kansas and Missouri can demon-
strate that the law Is superior to the
bold and elusive trusts and that trust
j magnates are not in a class by them-
j selves able to violate the law with im-
I punlty they will have performed a
wonderful service for the people of the
tntire United States.
The indications are that the defiant
lobbists and managers of the Stand- I

they flaunted the red flag in faces of
the Jayhawker legislators They for

Is some double statehood sentiment
part of which is based on the Texans
ant 'pa thy to the Kansan and part on
a desire for a state assumed to be
safely Democratic. Among the citi-
zens of the Five Tribes a number or the
leading men are for double ttatehood
for the reason that they have ever
looked v 'e amalgamation of the
Five Trlb. ' one government.
However some of the most progres-

ASCENDANCY OF SOUTHWEST.
(New York Financier.)
With onr diminishing exports of
grain which are caused by increased
domestic consumption and n pYactlcnl
limitation of the area of production
the matter of the rafes of distribution
Is one which naturally excites the live-
liest Interest not only among the
transportation lines but the dealers
end speculators in the markets. Until
within n very fow years the centers
for trading in grain have been in the
crder of thtfr Impcrtance. New York
Chlcsgc lan3s City St. Log and
Omaha. The fUst named city absorb-
ed supplies from the great Northwest
Chicago those from the large areas of
production In the Middle West and the
remaining centers partly contributed
ta the movement concentrating at
Chicago and New York and partly to
that at the Gulf ports. Latterly how
ever the great bulk of the movement
from the southwestern primary points
has been shifted to the Gulf for the
reasons above noted and with the area
of production spreading morje to the
south and the newer fields westward
't aeems qu'te natural that corn at
least will hereafter seek an outlet
through the Gulf rather than through
the Atlantic port8 particularly when
climatic conditions and freight rates
are favorable. In addition to the lose
of the traffic in corn the seebosrd
markets appear likely to lose much
of that in wheat because of the increas-
ing tendency to convert this grain into
Hour at the nearest sources of prodtic-
t'on prior to its distribution to domes-
tic or foreign markets. Thus con-
verted it is more advantageous to ship-
pers to seek the shortest routes be-
cause of the cheaper rates of trans-
portation and the lines having Gulf
ter ninals are naturally preferred Thus

hanced though at the expense of the
