AN ADMINISTRATION ENIGMA
Mutiy astounding political freaks
and whims havo been witnessed in
Oklahoma hut tho action of tlio na-
tional administration in tho appoint
inent of Mr. J R Keaton as associate
justice to succeed 11 W. Scott is un-
doubtedly tho cllmactcrlo of nil that
Is queer ami Incomprehensible. Not
that Mr. ICeaton Is not an able lawyer
and fully capable ol discharging the
duties of the high oflloo but hit politi-
cal attitude towards the powers at
Washington has left no doubt as to
his Intenso antagonism to tho man to
whom he owes his appointment. For
three yoara Mr. Ke&ton hos not in any
sense boon in n coord with tbo adminis-
tration and mado no bonos about bis
anti position. In convention and olse-
whore be has been vigorous in his
denunciation of the administration
and the Oklahoma supremo court of
which body ho noon hopob to be-
come a mombor. In tho distribu-
tion of political spoils political
worth and party sorvleo play a more
vital part in the majority of cases
than moral stability business sngnoity
and genera fitness. Ills unfortunate
that such should be tho case but It is
true nevertheless ard it is this faot
that causes comment ovor tho action
of Attorney-General Harmon and Pres-
ident Cleveland. Mr. Koaton was
doubtless as much surprised over the
honor conferred on him as anyono
since it is unnatural for ono man to
grant elaborate favors to another who
wiolds a cutlass to the disadvantage of
the donor. Tub Lkadeu h&s nothing
against Mr. Kcaton personally and
bollcvos he will give goneral satisfac-
tion. It is tho funny way they havo
at Washington that puzz.los The Lka-
dbr and territorial Democrats.

No platform ever issued by a na-
tional party in tho United States ever

Gold in its last analysis is the sweat
of tho poor and tho blood of the brave.
If you are farmers I beg you will ro-
membor that under this appreciation
of gold your products have fallen In
value while your dobtsand taxes have
remained as high as they used to be.
Wo nro opposed to the gold Rtandard
because it has nevor conferred ono
benefit upon those who produco tho
woalth of the world.
Gold has been the prize of the man
who hoardB money; silver has been the
medium of c.xchango among thoso
upon whom tho greatness of every
nation has rested.
People can got along without gold
but oven gold standard countries can
not got along without silver.
What wo want Is a dollar that will

which that dollar is to buy.

silvor just as muoh as sliver has do-
pioclated in valuo as measured Infjold.
The gold camblers have nurnosolv
produced this apparent depreciation of
silvor which is only u depreciation
when measured in gold. Silvor when
moasurcd in other kinds of property is
just as valuable as it ever was. They
now urRo tho results of their crime as

mitted to continue tho crime.

According to the scheme all Swiss in-

dividual initiative In each calling will
be allowed to exist by the side of the

What next! The latest is the bridga across the Cottonwood
Creek ou the street that leads to our store has been closed up.
Was the bridge unsafe or was too much trade going to tne west
Side? We think it was a little of both and the two together
v ere too heavy a strain on the council or on the bridge we
should have said. But our customers will have no trouble in
liuding our store if they will just follow the Hue of cotton wagons
