OFFICAL PAPER OF GRADY COUNTY
Eutered at the the Postoffiee at Chickasha Oklahoma as
Second Class Mall Matter
CHICK ASHA OKLAHOMA MONDAY MAY 25TH 1908
THE TRIUMPH OF BRYAN
With the conquest of Ohio and Massachusetts Bryan
eems to have won the nomination. No good citizen of
5ther party should be sorry. Bryan ia the Incarnation of
the progressive democracy of this country says the Okla-
homa News as Roosevelt Is the incarnation of progressive
The campaign In his own party against Bryan has not
been either candid or deserving of success. The voters
cf any party should control it and the democratic voters
are for Bryan. If the progressives In the party are to have
that control that their mjaorlty entitles them to Bryan
Is entitled to the nomination. If the democratic stanpatters
thould gain control they ought to nominate not a man
like Johnson of Minnesota admirable man that he Is but
a real reactionist like Gray of Delaware Harmon of Ohio
or best of all Orover Cleveland. We should then have
clean cut Issues and no lying. It is of much good when
we get rid of lying In party platforms and by party can
A man may be for or against Bryan but he can't be
undecided on recount of any lack of knowledge of what
Bryan stands for. If (he voter whiffles the whiffling will
be his own not Bryan's. Like Roosevelt he la a real
man. Like Roosevelt too he has long since ceased to
be a citizen of any one state or section. He knows his
United States well and la personally known to more peo-
ple than any other man In It. With Bryan In the field
Whether he wins or loses the atmosphere is cleared of
evasions or dodges and If the republicans nominate a
man as essentially republican as Bryan Is democratic we
shall have the best most educative and most enlightening
presidential campaign this country has seen.
That foreign news of real Importance is scarce Is in-
dicated by the activity of the war correspondent on the

low it s!:e slope is n crank who tried to show how close
:o a mining train he could stand while it passed. In
iirolling about you will see the monument of the hired
vM who tried tc start the fire wilh kerosene and the
grass-covered mound of the boy who put the cob under
the mule's tail. That tall shaft over the man who blew out
the gas throws a shadow across the grave of the boy who
tried to get on a moving train. Side by side the ethereal
creature who always laced her corset to the last hole and
the lntelliment idiot who rode a bicycle nine miles in ten
minutes sleep unmolested. At repose is a doctor who
took a dose of his own medicine. There with the top of
a shoe box driven over his head is the rich old man who
married a young wife. Away over there reposes the boy
who went fishing on Sunday and the woman who kept
strychnine powders in the cupboard. The man who stood
In front of a moving machine to oil the cycle is quiet now
and restg beside the careless brakeman who fed himself
to the seventy-ton engine and over In the potter's field
yiay be seen the bleached bones of the man who tried t'
whip the editor.
If that truly great disseminator of moral and religious
truth the Dally Oklahoman would take as much pride in
getting correct news reports as it does in flaring red
headlines it would boost Itself several notches in public
esteem. Its besetting sin is the fat .l gift of exaggeration
which prizes a big storp above a true one the Chickasha
'lood story being a flagrant case in point.
The "Home Improvement Association" launched by citi-
zens of the south part of town is a capital idea and is
may well be taken up by residents in other portions of the

checked the sunshine valves opened and it is safe to
predict a spell of fair and warmer cooler with showers
or variable weather. For further particulars see Hicks.
Accoridng to a statement made by ?. spesi'ter at the
Baptist convention in Oklahoma City It cosu nine dollars
per head to make converts in Oklahoma which is a very
reasonable amount to pay in exchange for a soul.
MMUH CLUB CORNER
Property owner laborer merchant professional: are you a
member of tbe Commercial Club?
If not why not?
Have you any idea what the Commercial Club is doing in
way of adding to your interests?
True the Commercial Club has done much that has not yet
asstmed such proportions as to justify publicity
The Commercial Club has also had in hand yome good pro-
positions which but for the lack of interest on the part of those
to be most benefited would have been consumated.
The Commercial Club in conjunction with other like organ-
izations of the state did cinch to mould sentiment ia congress
for the McGnire removal of restrictions bill. Over sixty letters
went to congressmen and senators from personal friends living
here and almost to a man their reply was au expression of sur-
prise at conditions with invariably a promise to study the situa-
tion and aid in securing to us our rights.
The Commercial Club furnished the data which enabled
Hon. Scott Ferris and Senator Gor? to secure for Chickasha an
appropriation for a $15000 site for a government building.
The Commercial Club took up the boulevard proposition
and in less than six weeks time a grand boulevard of four miles
and three quarters liaed with trees was a reality.
The Commercial Club took up the much needed street pav-
ing proposition at the east end of Chickasha avenue and the
Rock Island is paving.
The Commercial Club located the Cigar Vender Manufac-
tory which is putting up a brick building 60x140 and will start
out with twenty-five laborers.
The Commercial Club furnished the sinues of war for the
contest in Guthrie for the Girls' Industrial School and had the
legislature done aoything for the East side in way of locating
schools Chickasha would have secured the prize and her work
this session will count in the contest next winter.
The Commercial Club has secured an option on tbe 180 acre
college site southwest of the city and will locate-some great in-
stitutions of learning before the option expires.
Tbe Commercial Club has secured more advertising for
Chickasha for the little money expanded than ny other club in
Oklahoma and is keeping up the lick.
The Commercial Club has been under the management of
tbe present officials the past five months and it congratulates
itself that besides what it has accomplished in a way to mention
it has in hand several great propositions any one of which con.
sumated would itself be worth to tbe citizens in addition to
what they may have to "dig up" tu push it through tenfold
the entire year's cost of keeping up the organization.
If you do not belong to the Commercial Club you ought to.
You owe it to yourself and your neighbors to help boost.
Get the Chickasha move!
Is the motto at our store.

scriptions. Your health and

tant to be trifled with.
