cover the right way to do things.

1000 REPUBLICANS FOR THE
That one thousand white republi-
cans voted with the democrats of
Muskogee county for the amendment
to disfranchise the Ignorant negroes
is cajiable of mathematical conclusion
in the light of the official figures of
last Tuesday's primary and special
election. The total vote cast for all
the democratic candidates for gover-
nor was 3272. A total of 4280 votes
were cast for the Amendment or 1008
surplusage of votes cast over the dem-
ocratic vote for the amendment can
only be accounted for in one way.
They were cast by white republicans
who desire to rid their party in this
county and state of negro domination.
That this conclusion is based on fact
is further proven by the vote on re-
publican state central committeemen
Archie Jones the negro who has been
committeeman frbne this county for
two years was a candidate for re-
election. He was opposed by W. F.

JUSTICE OF THE
Editor Express: On page 455 ses-
sion laws of 1907 and 1908 will be
found an . act repealing- the existing
law requiring two justices of the peace
in each township to be elected and
requiring the county commissioners
at their regular session in July 1910
to divide the county into six justice
of the peace districts and a yiat of
said districts to be kept in the office
of the county clerk. At the general
election for the year 1910 and every
biennial election thereafter there shall
be elected one justice of the peace
and one constable for each district.
The election law required each can-
didate to file their .petition 30 days
before the primary election in order
to get on the ticket. (See compiled
tatutes of Oklahoma page 791 sec
tion 3279.) The primary election was
held August 2 so there was not time
for candidates to file their petitions
"0 days before the .primary for jus-
tice of th peace and constable in
these justice of the peace districts.
Now the name of & candidate for
justice of the wace was on the demo-
cratic ticket voted at the primary at
Tuttle. For the reasons given above
we contend that no candidates for
justice of the peace or constable un-
der the above law could be legally
printed on the ticket. Nona was on
the republican or socialist ticket it
being generally understood (as we
are informed) by the republican and
socialist parties that none could legal
ly be placed on the ticket no candi-
dates filing to be placed on for that
reason. And others would have ap-
peared oh the democratic ticket if it
bad not been so generally understood
Now many of us will object to said
candidates' name being placed upon
the general election ticket for Novem-
ber not for personal reasons but that
if we have a justice of the peace he
be legally elected so that he can le
gally hold his office and as a matter
of right and justice. The county elec-
tion board will certainly consult the
county attorney or get the opinion of
the attorney general before placing
the names of these jusMces of the
peace who slipped their uS'es on the
primary ticket under the oil law upon
the -general ticket to be voted in No-
vember and thereby avoid litigation.

A RACE WITH FIRE
A Story of the Gv3 War
By' EDU1NC TRASK
Copyright 1910 by American Presi
When one morning- just before sun-
rise we swept down on Turncrville
taking the place by surprise we found
three loco-Qotlves audi twenty freight
cars standing ia the railroad yard.
A train was made up loaded with
troops and I havls been a locomotive
engineer was put in the cat Before
starting the general said to me:
"Sergeant the success of this expe-
dition dependa upon you. Colonel Par-
ker is in command but has nothing to
do with running the train. That's in
your hands. As soon as the Confed-
erates know we're hero they'll send a
force to cut us oft But they'll need
the bridge at B. and I want you to
get these men there before daylight in
the morning to burn it. But you must
keep a sharp lookout for snags. The
citizens on the line you will pass over
are all hostile and they'll strain every
nerve to wreck your train. Remem-
ber not only tho lives of the men in
these cars but the safety of the whole
command depends upon you."
The first tea mllas we did by day-
light Then it grew dark and 1 had
nothing to see by but the lantern
which lit the track dimly. My "uead
was thrust far out the cab window
and my hand was on the throttle.
Twice I stopped her within a few feet
of a tie wedged in between a rail and
the ties and once I bumped a tree
that had been felled across the track
having not quite stopped before reach-
ing it. On au elevation 1 struck a
junction . and a lot of people standing
about staring a us as we passed. 1
didn't like their )ooks. But the tele-
graph wires bad been cut and I didn't
see how they could send word ahead.
There were half a dozen ; freight cars
on a sidetrack but no locomotive.
Soon after leaving the junction I shut
off steam and let bor roll down the
long declivity. .1 was nearly at the
foot on a short upward grade when 1
had a break the engine was only fit
for a Junk heap and spent half an
hour at a standstill while I patched it.
As 1 remounted the cab Corporal Bob
Jenkins who was acting as fireman
pointed up the hill with a look of hor-
ror. I saw a .bright light and a mo-
ment later a hort string of freight
cars shot from out a cut. 1 knew at
once what it meant The citizens at
the junction had started the cars I harii
seen on the sidetrack first having set
them afire with" the hope that they
would smash us cn catching us and
If there was anything left of our train
burn it. 1 juutwd into tho cab and
pulled the throttkv : -
The grade behind us wasn't less than
30 degrees and the fire train was com-
ing like lightnin. 1 had a few train
lengths to go on nearly a level then
a straightaway traqk on a Blight de-
cline. The fire rain was coming at a
rate of a mile in forty-five seconds and
the best my ol(Lwheezer could do was
a mile in two inlflutes. If 1 couldn't
haul away far enough before the cars
behind reached a place where they
would lose momentum they would ruin
Then began the race of my life. 1
could have stopped let the men out of
the cars and permitted the smashup
bnt the bridge wouldn't be burned and
our force at Turnerville would be cut
off. I remembered the pressure of the
hand the general had given me and 1
tightly grasped the throttle resolved
to get away from those fire cars or
I held my eyes front while Bob Jen-
kins kept me posted on the fire cars.
"They're gaining on us mighty fast!"
"Only a mile away!" "They'll catch
us sure!" "They're coming like a
streak of lightning!" These were the
unassuring words Bob gave me while
my locomotive puffed and sputtered
and dragged along at what se?med to
us a snail's pace.
Then suddenly turning a curve I
saw a light ahead. Great heavens!
Were we to have fire both in front
and behind us? KuDuing on a straight
track 1 saw men kindling a small
bridge. They had got the fire well
going but 1 didn't beeve they had
burned the stringers suflicieutly to let
us down. At any rate 1 determined
to risk it Leaving on full speed-I
couldn't put on any more I dashed
Into the flames -i My locomotive cross-
ed safely and I was congratulating
myself that the. train was all over
when I felt a shock. We went a short
distance and stopped
The bridge had gone down under the
last two cars. Several men were bad-
ly Injured but no one killed. All were
got out before the fire cars plunged iu
on the wreck and stopped there to
mingle their burning with that of the
other material 'v
The men of the last two cars got
into those cars that bad crossed carry-
ing the wounded 1 mounted my en-
gine and we steamed on for the rest
of the night reaching the bridge at
B. just before dawn. My work was
done. I leaned out of the cab window
wstchlng the men carry the wood and
petroleum and distribute them along
the structure. Then suddenly there was
a flash and from one end to the other
all wts aflame. I never looked at de-
struction before with such comfort
and delight ' '
When I got back to camp I got a
warm pressure of the hand from the
general and It was not long bffore.
through his influence I was given a
commission. But the best work I did
