THE FARCE ENDED.
Viider the above heading the Musko-
&ee Phoenix one of the oldest reub-
ican papers In the state discusses the
suit of the town lot cases as fob
-'The government by its own motion
; Inked to have all the no-caned town
" ot conspiracy cases against Governor
. X. Haskell. W. T. Htitchinga V. It.
liiton. W. Turner K. B. Severs and
f I Z. Kngjaml disnilssed.
"It. was charged that the parties
Inspired m defraud the government
by entering into a deal whereby cer-1
tain town lots in the town
ee wen- secured at
less than their t
actual value by the substitution of j
names of purchasers etc. not resi-lning between $2750000000 and $:!-
dents of Muskogee. I'nder the act j 000000000. the South will have by far
j segregating the townsites from the In. the largest Income ever received by It
dfan lands in the old Indian Terri- from agriculture assuring greater pros-
I tory each resident entitled to but I perity to the farmers of this section
f three lots and there were sold at a;
' ; low valuation. The result naturally
' win that scores of residents put the
- names of their friends down as appli-
cants and while the practice may or
P Smay not have been to the govern-
? merit's loss in the main it resulted in
the settling up of the cities and th?
; consequent Increase of values. j
"The practice too was 'generally j
known at the time by citizens and g iv
i ernment official and no objection v.as
entered although nearly everybodj
knew it was technically Illegal. j
"But. the affair got Into politics and I
? has been made much to the detri-1
ment of Oklahoma and of Muskoge
a subject of wide continent through-
mil the press of the country.
"Governor Haskell bitterly assailed 1
President Roosevelt during the laUer's
. administration and the prcslU-tit as
bltteily 'came back.' making the
Iowa lot cases an issue and 'putting
all the machinery of the government
to work to secure the governor's con-
viction. "The action was generally regarded
as spite work and for that reason was
not approved by citizens who knew
the Inside facts. They argued that if
Oov. Haskell was guilty he was guilty
before he assailed the Roosevelt ad-
ministration and should have been
charged with the crime at the time
and not be made the victi'. of the
'big stick' when such actio. '.!JM only
damaged the state but worked an In-
jury to the republican party of the
Kiate which was obliged to endorse
the president's action.
"The dismissal of the cases there
fore is no surprise to the people
here. Nobody 'on the ground"
thought there was anything to them
but polities and a kind of politics
that always does a party endorsing it
much more harm than good.
"In Muskogee where th" i'tir.ns I
charged are among the oldest and best
H-sldents the dismissal of these cases
will be received with genuine pleasure.
None of the men named is a crim-
inal; every man would be regarded as
n desirable citizen lit any city and It
Is highly g.atif'ylng to know that this
nnjust and Ill-timed persecution is at
"Muskogee welcomes I hem home
glad to know that the 1. S. court has
exonerated them but not. without the
assurance that her best citizens had
already adjudged them Innocent of any
wrong against the government."

With a grain crop this year aggre-
gating 10(3.000000 bushels or more

$loco.000000 with a total value of ag. i
ricultural products for this year run-
than they have had In the past and
thus to all business Interests depend-j
ent upon agriculture.
As late as 1900 the total value of the
Souths agricultural products vis
27 f 000000. The output this year will
be largely more than double that. Con.
trast the figures of 1910 with the total
of 1890. of $7.3000000. and we get a i
fair conception or the wonderful ad-j
vauee made by the ;grieultural Inter- j
ests of this section In the last wpny I
This year's cotton crop will exceed
by $I50.IiOO. 000 to $200000000 the total j
value of ail agricultural products .of j
the Sout.i In WMi.
This year's grain crop will exceed
the total value of all lis agricultural
products In 1S!0
Omitting the value of the cotton
crop this year the total value of other
agric ultural products will approximate
I $1750000000 or some $5oOfoOf)oo
more for diversified crops than the
total agricultural output of l!o(t. cot-
Possibly the magnitude of this year's
farm product values in the South will
be the better grasped from the simple
statement that they will exceed by ft
least $200000000 the total value of all
farm crops of the I'nlied Sttaes In
Surely these are wonderful Jnres.
They are only Indicative ho.ery of
the general advance of the South. They
give jhe reason for much of Its progress-
In city building and Industrial ac-
tivity. With such a foundation on which to
build with such Increasing prosperity
among the farmers. It Is difficult to set
any limit to the possibilities of the
growth of the South dining th- next
icn years. It has now solved the trou.
bleome problems that confronted 1t
agricultural interests ten years ago. it
la.- secured the world's recognition of
a profitable price for cotton. It has
found a way to diversify its agricul-
ture to such an extent that it Is no
longer compelled to make cotton Its
only money crop but it can turn its at-
tention from cotton to other interests
fif equal profit. It Is entering upon a
period of increasing ugrieultural pros-
perity of expansion in all business In-
terests of rapidity of growth of cities
and of a trend of population southward
such as as It has neved known in the
past. Manufacturers' Record.
PROGRESS OR REACTION.
"The one Issue in Oklahoma Is
whether the democratic party with Its
progressive policies shall be continued
in power or the stale turned over to the
reactionaries." Chickasha Express.
There is no question whatever that
Oklahoma Is progressive though the
republicans are attempting to raise
enough dust to cloud the Issue and lead
the people's attention to some other
matters of minor Importance.
The democratic party is not on the
fence; 1t stands for positive definite
things which are in accord with the
spirit of Oklahoma today. The ques-
tion plainly .stated is. do the people of
Oklahoma want to lo'ave the collection
of corporation taxes the operation of
state banking laws the enforcement of
the anti-trust laws "Jim t'ro'w' law and
the "grandfather clause" the prosecu-
tion of the two-cent rate case in the
hands of Leo Cnice who has fully en-
dorwT' lEFtu'i' aai haa heretofore j
bf'tff followed; and Charles W'ph! will j
has by three yeurs of service )ioved '.lis j
honesty efficiency tiingle mlmledncss
and ability or do they want to turn j
these thlnga over to the tender mercies
of Joe .McNeaJ who says that the
course followed has been all wronR
and who tuns a life of experience to
show that he Is utterly out of sympathy
with them and Joe DoiIhoii whom no-
body knows and who u keeping scru-
pulously concealed whatever record he
may have had. Shawnee Herald.
Over three hundred bales of cotton
were marketed in Shawnee last Sat-
urday. It doesn't take a very able
mathematician to figure out what that
means to Shawnee merchants
time for Chickasha to be making a
i mote strenuous effort to get her share
of the fleecy staple.
