where on His Dakota Tour Attacks
the Candidate and Platform
Guthrie Okb. Sept. 29 Suits will
be filed probably today by Governor
Haskell against W. R. Hearst fur the
purposo of securing redress for al
leged libelous statements published In
the New Yorker' papers. It is likely
that there will be one probably more
defendants to similar suits but the
governor was not willing to discuss
the subject today.
It Is not at .all Improbable that For-
mer Attorney Central Sheets of Ohio
will be made a defendant In one of
the suits proposed by tho governor.
It Is known that Mr. Haskell has been
urged by Ohio friends to bring suit
against Sheets for his attacks. Sheets
it will be remembered is the Ohloan
who was brought to Oklahoma last
year ty the Republicans to assail Mr.
Haskell then oandldate for governor.

walling for an uptown train at the
Fourteenth street station of the Sixth
Avenue railroad a well dressed wom
an of 26 threw herself In front of a
moving train and was so terribly in
jured that she died a few momets
later The tragic act created almost a
panic on the crowded platform.
Women ran shrieking toward the ex

dozen of them fell In a faint

Guthrie Okla. Sept. 29. "If the
president will come to Oklahoma I will
gladly pay his expenses. Of course i
shall treat him with due respect but
that 13 all 1 can promise." Governor
Haskell in .a conversation yesterday.
The guns of the ex-Democratic na-
tional treasurer are aimed In one di-
rectionthe White House. The gov-
ernor is frank. He admits the appli-
cation of the adage about revenge and
sweetness. He has made public wir-
ing to prominent Eastern newspapers
an excerpt from the address he gave
to the Associated Press at Kansas City
Saturday night and which was not
transmitted over the wires of the news
gathering organization according to
the governor. It relates to Mr. Has-
kell's charge against the president and
the Harriman $200000 campaign fund.
Gutbrle Okla. Sept. 29. Sixty-
eight cities and towns as widely sepa
rated as east can run from west and
north from south representing as va-
ried communities as provincialism can
create located in states whose poli-
tics Is as respectively different as
black from white nave telegraphed
Governor Haskell to tnake speaking
Seven separate Invitations came
from Ohio where Republican news
papers say Mr. Haskell dare not go.
The sixty-eight telegrams differ ma
terially only In tho wording. Thic
sample selected at random from the
mass of slips tells the whole story:
"We are sorry you resigned. Believe
lmpllclty In your honesty. You are the
only Democrat who has had the cour
age to slap the president."
Mr. Haskell viewed the pile of paper
with pardonable pride. He allowed
the seven Ohio Invitations to crinkle
through his fingers then he smiled.
"Does that look so awfully bad?"
California Colorado Kansas Iowa
and Texas want the governor and want
him badly. Fifteen "leading Demo-
crats" of Magazine Ark. were insist-
ent for an engagement. Conservative
Springfield Mass. expressed an en
thusiastic desire to hear the man who
talked back to the president. New
York contributed telegrams from Syra-
cuse Brooklyn and Geneva all anx
ious to get a date or two. Among the
others were the two Carollnas whose
Invitations were of true Southern hos-
pitality. There are In the neighborhood of
400 letters and telegrams from Indi-
viduals received since Mr. Haskell's
resignation as national treasurer.
SURPRISED BY FRIENDS
About fifty members of the Congre
gational church surprised their pastor
Rev. H. A. Hodges last evening with
a donation party. At ts o ciock mey
gathered at the parsonage with their
bundles and packages and many good
things to eat and after bestowing the
gifts upon Rev. Hodges proceeded to
spend a happy evening with him. The
surprise was complete but none the
I Elk Park S D Sept. 29. Conduct
ing one day's campaign In South Da-
kota yesterday Mr. Bryan poured vol-
leys of criticism Into the Republican
platform Mr. Tat and President
Roosevelt He c 'vered a good deal
of ground in the Btate and last night
stopped In Sloux City Iowa whence
he left this morning for Rock Island.
The expectation was to catch a.
night train for the Illinois city but
speeches along the line so tired the
Democratic candidate out that he could
not make connections at Sloux City
until morning. Mr. Bryan spoke a
dozen times his principal remarks
being at Mitchell Yanfcton Vermillion
snd here. Ills favorite arguments
were on the trusts guaran'y of bank
deposits and publicity of campaign con
tributions before election. He In-
veighed against President Roosevelt
because he said of the president's
failure to land any trust magnates In
the penitentiary and attacked Mr. Taft
dodging his platform. The fact that
South Dakota was carried for the
Democratic national ticket In 1896 was
referred to by Mr. Bryan and he ap
pealed for that support again on the
ground that the Democratic party
promised real reforms while the Re-
publican party could not be expected
to do anything In that direction.
At every place visited by the Demo-
cratic candidate he was met by cheer-
ing crowds. A strong wintry wind from
the north did not seem to affect either
the candidate or hts audience. Ob-
serving at Mitchell that the windows
of the stores and houses were plarard-
ed with lithographs of himself Mr.
Bryan In the course of his remarks "
there urged the people to remove them
and hang up In their stead pictures
of Mr. Taft and thus show him tho
"same courtesy that you have shown
nie." He said he took It for granted
that the compliment paid him was not
personal but that it was due to the
fact that he was a candidate for the
highest office in the gift of the people.
