jxicnu ana a Bon wmie mere they
told a miserable story about Oklr.no-
ma farmers and atato affiirial W
ruined and handled hv tho Wn.i
wire trust u story that has not the.
semblance of truth in it but it Rav
them notoriety in tho rsew Yor
Journal of January 28. Tho Intcrvio
was cut out and Bent hero to a lcadin
money loaner by a New York man
who haa nearly 85000 in Oklahoma
farm loans. It is in part as follows:
" 'Wo have just como from Okla-
homa' they said. 'Only a few dollars
aro lest of the little fortuno wo had
when wo started out to l'nrm. Wo
worked a good sized farm and for a
time did well. Last year was a year
of prosperity but our expensed becamo
vory largo. Raising the crop coat us a
lot of money. We wore compelled by
law to build a fence around our prop-
erty but this was bcrned down
Whether It was dono by tho wire trust
gouts or not we cannot Bay
" 'After our fence was built wo wero
told by tho county authorities that wo
must put a wire fonce around tho
furm. r a long timo tho price of
the wltc o'r coil was P'25 but when
tho truBt commenced to sell tho wire it
went up to $fi.75 a toll. It was impos-
sible for ua to exist on tho farm and
psy Buoh a high prloo for wire. The
BtaU and aounty ofllclala notified us
that if wo didn't put up a wire fonco
we would havo to soil tho farm Wo
askod if wo couldn't get wire from
some oth&r concern than the wiro trust
and woro told that wo could not.
"Now wo aan sweat to it and wo
havo po&tlve proof that tho State and
aounty ofllelals aro in tho pay of the
Cainuoglo Stoel Company or In other
words tho wire TruBt. That Trust Is
cutting tho throats of tho farmers all
through Oklahoma. It is making
paupers of thousands who cannot af-
ford to pay tho outrageous pneca
ehargod by the trust for wire.
"In the hand of tho wiro trust means
wo woro as helpless as babies. There
was nothing left for us but to Bell for
a sang and got out.
"Stay away from Oklahoma' that la
This Ib absolutely Improbab'e. One
spool of barbed wire will measure 100
rods or one rod to tho pound 1Q0
pouuds to a spool. A farm in Okla-
homa is 100 rods square and Is seldom
fonaed with more than four wire? ex-
cept a small portion with perhaps
or tan wires for a hoj Jot. Ii lastB
from six to ton years. One can figure
on tho above mentioned prices and
learn bow much of this fortune was in
tho fence oven if thoy had more than
ono farm. It is true that tho price
has gone up from 82.25 to 81.76 per 100
pounds. Prairie fires fcomo times burn
over a district and burn up eevorul
posts in a milo of fence but pos.t are
ehcap and cost but AH cents oaah.
No spot In tho nation is raoro pros
porous condition than Oklahoma and
it stands a proven lio that no j incident
Is on record as abovo mentioned. 1

An Enid special says tho political
bickerings between T. J. Palmor ed-
itor of the Medford Patriot postmas-
ter of Medford andUnitcd States com
missioner and John P. Rcn6hawclcrk
of tho court of tho Fifth judicial clr
cuit.seem to have taken an unexpected
turn for Palmer Both Palmer and
Ranshaw are Republicans. Palmer
has been scoring Renshaw lately in
the Patriot alleging that his appoint-
mentlunder Judge McAtec Democrat
was a deal against thedntercstsof tho
Republican party and that Renshaw
should bo deposed as a member of the
Republican central committee of Grant
county because of alleged non-rcsl.
dence Now comes &cothcr chapter.
In tho Fifty-third congress Dennis
T. Flynn caused to bo passed a bill
creating the office of United Stn-tns
court commissioner boforo whom fin-
al proof should bo made in homestead
entries and giving the chief justice
tho power to appoint. Palmer suc-
ceeded In getting an appointment
from Judge John H. Burford. His no
sltion proved to bo luoratlve. It ex-
cited the desire ot a citizen of Man-
chester to havo the place. Upon In-
vestigation It was discovered that in
March 1800 congress repealed tho
law under which Palmer was appoint-
ed but enacted another which differ-
ed from the old law only in the fact
that tho appointive power was lvcn
to district judges. Judge McAtee ap-
pointed the Manchester man and it is
now held that Palmer is without office
as Judge Burford could not make an
appointment outside of his district.
