Tun political degeneracy of the Re
publican party was never more fully
illustrated than in the case of the ap
pointment by the Republican govern
or of Pennsylvania of ex-Scnutor Quay
to a seat in the United States senate.
Hardly had the verdict of tho jury
been read when the appointment was
telegraphed over the country. When
the fact is considered that Quay's ac
iiulttal was largely duo to technicali-
ties of the law and that more than one
halt of the people of his own state
liellevo him to bo guilty the act of the
Republican governor looms up as a
feature of Republican polities with a
sting in It.
Tho Indian Territory papers sav
thero Is lllcoly to bo a great dual of
trouble and coinplloationi gronlng
out of tho Dawos allotments In the
Creek nation Sometimes two or
more allottees hold certificates to the
same piece of ground and again an
allottee with his cortiQuate In his
pockot goes to his designated allot
ment only to find some other man on
It with he improvements which ho has
been making for years and of eourse
ho refuses to vacate. Then tho In-
dian Is fust learning tho white man's
ways In locating his homostead and
when ho finds a One location well im-
proved ho slips off to tho source of tl
ties and often gota tho certificate and
the first notice tho rancher has ho Is
told to move. Then trouble begins.

If tho teb graph can bo rolled upon
for giving tho faots fow crimes of a
more fiendish charaoter wore ovur per-

occurred in tho lynehlng of Sam Hose

Hose deserved doath. He was unfit
to cumber the earth and his doath

of his crime. While all this is doubt
