OOOli RECORD OF TIIE COVSTY at-
torsey. The Leader is pleased Id once more
call the attention of tbo Democrats
and Populists of Logan county to the
splendid record made by County At-
torney E W. Jones. Mr. Jones is the
only candidate thus far announced to
come baforo the primaries and his
renomination raeu'B his re-election.
The court expense for Logan county
for the past twelvemonths ending the
last fiscal year under Mr. Jones ad
mislstration has reached but 88000.
Never has this one item been lower
than 19800 in previous years and
from this figure it has run up into the
pictures under previous administra-
tions. Not a suit is pending against
the county and not a judgment ren-
dered. Under the present attorney
administration three times more crimi-
nals have been sentenced to the peni-
tentiary than during the same period
of any other county attorney in Logar
and this cointy has alwtys had able
attorneys Ailing this place. The pres-
ent county attorney's office has stood
bravely for right regardless of indi-
viduals and wrongdoers in places high
and low have been found to be on
equal footing. The present attorney
has stopped the practice of the terri-
torial treasurer taking interest on the
people's money and directly through
his efforts the present treasurer has
restored to the public fund S5.700 so
earned. Mr. Jones is courageous and
affable and his signal victory in 1898
showed the estimation in which he is
held by the people. He has lived in
Logan county since April 22. 1889 and
knows every man woman and child in
the county. His nomination will be
followed by another rallying of the
voters who will return him to office
this fall unanimously.
VAVT. TAYLOR'S WORK.
In the election of James Jacobs for
national committeeman by the Okla
homa City convention the factional
differences engendered at El Reno
were finally buried.
In the interest of harmony Capt.
John T. Taylor of Logan county en-
tered the race. It was not Capt. Tay-
lor's intention to make an aggressive
campaign and be endeared himself to
Democracy by keeping aloof from the
contending factions. The Jacobs com-
bination waB impregnable and refused
to give in; the Sipes forces were
equally aggressive and not until h's
candidacy became embroiled in the con
gressional question did he withdraw
from the contest. Capt. Taylor in re-
maining in the race merely did so in
order to allow those who opposed both
factions to unite on a harmonious
candidate. Rut it is difficult to break
combinations. The Logan county
delegation did its duty well although
unjustly censuied by other counties.
Capt. Taylor has no censure for any-
one and abides by Democracy's action
with a loyal and praiseworthy spirit.
Capt. Taylor has proven his devotion
to a coalition of all forces by his earn-
est work as chairman of the county
committee. To him was due in a great
measure the getting together of Demo-
crats and Populists and his work was
performed in such a manner that no
bitterness or rancor exist on either
MR. FRAY FOR SHERIFF.
Mr. P. J. Frey candidate for the
nomination of sheriff on the Demo-
cratic ticket subject to the action of
the primaries has had a varied and in-
teresting career. He has been in this
country since 1872. At 19 years of age
he was sheriff of Bar.on county Mo.
In the early day he killed buffdlo
where Guthrie is now lo ated and
was wounded by Indiai-s For two
days ho lay on the banks of the Cimar-
ron river suffering from his wounds
Mr. Fray served as deputy bheriff
under Frank Pierce of Kay county
the chief lieutenant; of Robert Neif
and also served as deputy in Texas.
He is a bravecourteous and able man.
As a contractor he is honest and
square. The construction of the best
buildings in Guthrie is due to him. He
is well known in Logan county. If
nominated he will make the hottest
race for sheriff Logan county h&s ever
CASDIDATU KEFS JJE31UCICAT.
The Lkadeu never kicks on the ma-
jority. Its will is absolute and ilnal.
While this paper would have pre-
ferred a .Democrat for the congres-
sional nominee it with huudreds of
Democrats bows to the will of the ma-
jority. The Leadkh will give to Mr.
Neif the Eame loyal bupport it would
have given had a Democrat been
named. All Democrats are in duty
bouud to support Mr. Neff. He repre
sents what they advocate. HcBtands
squarely on the Kansas C ty platform
and espouses 'tho cause of tho'Demo-
cratic leaders Bryan and Stevenson.
He will make the issues on Democratic
doctrines. He is as much a Democrat
as a Populist and no Democrat who
is loyal to the principles of-Democracy
and reform can oppose his candidacy.

crat in Oklahoma lined up solidly for

ple's primaries on August 23rd. Mr.

Truthful nml Graphic Narration of tho
Joint Convention Contest.
At the Ringside Okla. City Aug. 1.
The hall was crowded. Police were in
easy distance. The Bports Btood on
chairs and yelled. The betting was
spirited. A yell went up bb Neff in
the pink of condition rushed across
the ring to his dressing room. His
skin glistened and his hair threw off
moistened cadences of tippling color.
Another yell went up as Cross entered.
The Traveler held his head high on his
shoulders and his teeth in his mouth
and betting changed to odds. Referee
Houston said the fight waB to be to the
finish according to the articles of
agreement and he was ''there to Bee a
Bquare go." Betting again changed.
Forrest had already stated that he
couLi not swallow the bug and was
hustled out by the police. After a few
preliminary bouts ia which Bports Ray
Ross Dunn Cromwell and Callahan
figured tne champions Neff and Cross
dashed into the ring followed by Par-
son Davies Hall of Oklahoma county
and Pop Aoton Pierce of Kay county.
For more than two hours Neff
and Cross glared at each other and
then shook hands. Crcsi wore a
mauve smie and a caddy of Battleaxc
in his mouth. Champion Neff was
stripped down to the vocabulary and
appeared well poised ai.d confident
Betting again changed. The sports
were wild with delirious delirium and
several had to be taken out and bed-
ded among them Denton Gill Card-
well Barrett and Diggs.
At tho call of time Cross let fly at
Neff's applause department with his
order book and received a bill of
goods in the slats from Neff's left ana
a stuffed expecsi account from the
Kay county giant's right. At this
tne betting changed again and a hun-
dred spcts rushed for room 55 Grand
The mill was dull and prosy until
the 27th round which caused betting
to change. In this round Neff made
Jeffries rushes breaking down Cross's
mileage books. Cross walked to his
Twenty-eighth round Neff in-
creased in strength and reached for
Cress' heart but fell short. They
clinched; CrosB led for wind with his
right and got a bowery hook on the
jaw. Cross was plainly getting grog-
gy. Neff Emiled blandly and was
landing right and left with Cross coun-
ters on Cross' expression when the
Twenty-ninth roiindIn this round
both Neff and Cross were winded.
Cross led with a left to neck and re-
ceived an upper cut from the Newkirk
giant for his pains. Both mixed it
and Cross broke ground. Neff was
hammering the U C. T. advocate
when the gong sounded.
Thirtieth round Neff bounded to
the center with alacrity. Ho rushed
and played with his lefton CroSb' slats
as he handed his right over to the in-
come aorta. The slugging was furious.
Cross made two ineffectual attempts
to land his right on Neff's stampede
arrangement. Neff saw his advantage
and followed it up making furious
referendum rushes They mixed it.
Cross new but weak led for the shirt
front Neff feinted and landed right
and left on Cross' word factory. Cross
broke ground and Neff followed up
his opening with a joint convention
swing handing the Traveler a couple
of veal cutlets in the special order
compartment. C oss wont down.
Neff stood rady and as Cress attempt-
ed to rise Neff probated him again
landing a couple of noncupative wills
on his heirloom. The sports were
wild with frenzy. Hagan was so ex-
cited he declaimed to himself all of
his '90 silver cow story speeches and
Whittinghill of Enid squandered a
fortune which he had in his mind.
Leslie Ross added a "C" to his name
and stood for Cross; Sidney Clark tried
to eat his white gaiters and suddenly
thinking himself the Barnes adminis-
tration viciously poked into his own
throat six vellum 18 octavo sets of anti
resolutions. The air was locooed with
freak Caldwell's voice and Col. John-
son's congealed H2 O gurgles. Mean-
while Neff was punctuating Cross'
fealings landing right and left and
north and south. Finally Neff pound-
ed Cross about tho ring with a Cleve-
land county swing and Cross west
down and out. A cry of foul went up
and Neff shouted "I'll do it again."
As Cross rose to his feet sick in tho
gills and bleating in tho diaphragm
Neff bowled him over again with a
Democratic punch in the excess bag-
gage region. Rpfereo Houston award-
ed the prize to Neff who accepted in
a few well-preserved words. Then
came Cross who said: "But one man
could do it; Neff said." After
the speeches all tho Bports
fell on each others' g necks
and laughed cried and love-
feasted. And then champion Neff is-
sued a defi to that boastful word pain-
ter Flynn for a 25-round go any kind
of rules to govern. The hull was then
cleared of everyone Bavo Jim Diggs.
and Jim bouyant intrepid and free
chained himself to the stage and there
standing alone preguant with thought
und filled with confidence lifted
his voice saying: "Vox popull; vox
Dei! Vive le Diggs. Abaa Flynn."
