OHOslSIZATIUX BSSESTrAL TO sue-
OHSS. On the eve of another national ter-
ritorial and county campaign singul-
arly fraught with issues on the right
solution of which depends the wel-
fare appiness and prosperity of the
nation the Leader would earnestly
appeal to every lover of llbrrty to put
on tb? armor of battle and make ready
to respond to the call of duty.
The perfect harmony characterizing
the national Democratic convention at
Kansas City more strongly presages
victory in November than any other
omen could. This should encourage
and give stimulus to yet greater effort
and tireless endeavor. What is now
wanting to Insure victory is organiza-
tion thorough and intelligent organ-
ization from precinct and ward up to
township county and district organi-
zations This and only this can make
assurances doubly sure and take defeat
from the list of possibilities.
Victory is not to be achieved without
a struggle a struggle against a cun-
ning powerful and unscrupulous ad-
versary in league with corporate
wealth trusts and imperialists banded
together in an unholy alliance ta place
under contribution the industries of
the country and make slaves of Amer-
ican freemen. Mighty are the forces
against us unlimited their means and
flushed now are they with their na-
tional success in 'OG. But vhia is no
cause for dismay ; American manhood
is stronger than all these when frater-
nally arrayed in the cause of liberty.
As fusionists we should be alert. In
organization there is union ; in union
there is strength and through strength
cometh victory. Through organization
alone can we attain that union and
harmony that makes success poisible
in politics. Without organization there
is weakness confusion perhaps dis-
cord and 6trife and poEslbly dtfeat.
Without organization a majority even
may be defeated.
Through the lack of thorough or.
ganization the Democratic party was
defeated in 1895 for it is firm in the
convictioa of those best able to judge
that a majority of the voters believed
in the principles of the Chicago plat-
form and favor the election of the
While the national committee did all
that was poEsib'e during the campaign
our party wa6 an untrained host and
therefore unable to register their will
at the ballot box or after it was reg-
istered to Bee that it was counted. The
frauds that were committed could not
have in most instances been perpetra-
ted had there been an active and alert
organization t) guard against them.
The strength of the Republican party
lies in itB wonderful organization held
together it is true by the cohes'.ve
power of public plunder and kept re
cruited by the employment of a small
army of shrewd men whose special
duty it is to attsnd to the details that
are necessary to win political fights.
FusioniBts have no fund for such a pur-
pose and therefore we should give the
more earnest need to organization that
volunteers may be tecurad to perform
the necessary wcrk.
To consummate organizition and
with it unity of purpose and action is
the great desideratum that all Demo-
drats should labor to attain.
Clubs should be formed to promote
the study of fundamental principles
and disseminate )iterature;the country
shonld be strewn wl:h documents; tal-
ented men should ba encouraged to
write and speak upon the true princi-
ples of our government and hi made
fully to ; know and appreciate their
rights and duties.
It is the desire and duty and purpose
ot the Leader to aid any and all ef-
forts in this work in the firm convic-
tion that the battle of the century is
upon us. Volunteers in this work
will find their reward in the conscious-
ness of duty done; that they never fal-
tered in the struggle to hand down to
po 'T.ty the b'essiugs of a free gov
li niiu-nt. While we of Oklahoma are
l-barred from casting a vote for the
next Democratic president we at least
. an a- ' moral support and show
the stuff that Is in us by redeeming
the territory from Republican mis-
rule. It is to bs noted that the gentleman
who gets up stories of "horrible plots"
to burn Manila and massacre all the
Americans therein including some
15000 soldiers never has any difficul-
ty In getting his matter passed by the
military censor. Thorcfs reason to be-
lieve however that the 'horrible
plot" industry is somewhat overdone.

Sheriff Collecting Taxes.
Deputy Sheriff Foust is back from a
two weeks' trip iu the Kicva and Co-
manche country where he has been
collecting delinquent taxes from the
cattlemen. There ure a number of the
big stockmen in the nouth country at-
tached to this county for judicial pur-
poses who are inclined to play horse
with the Canadian county tax collec-
tors. The conditions are such there
that the ranchmen are able to ship out
train load after train load of cattle
upon which taxes are unpaid and in
consequence of which shipments the
sheriff's deputu s are frequently unable
to find any cattle upon which they can
levy. Mr. Foust has been at work
upon a way of heading off these ship-
ments and it is believed that his plan
will save tho county quite a consider-
able sum in taxes that-would ordina-
rily remain unpaid. On his last trip
Mr. Foust levied on two droves of
cattle for tuxes amounting to over
312000. The stock was replevined and
oatisfactory bonds given. This puts
the matter into the district court
which of course maus the payment of

Planter Does Receive a Premium.
In an article printed in southern pa-
pers and paid for by tho compress in-
terest the statement is made that the
American Cotton Company "has paid
both the planter and the Bplnner bon-
uses" to extend tho use of tho round-
lap bale Th.6 reluctant admission by
the coropressmeu that the use of the
roundlap bale Is profitable to planter
and spinners is not an exact statement
of fact The planter does receive
a premium for his cotton in
round ap bales not aB a bonus but be-
cause his cotton in these bales is worth
more to any buyer than In any other
package. In like manner the spinner's
profit from the use of roundlap bales
comes from the economies they enable
him to make. The farmer cares little
who pajs the premium which his
roundlap bales command. What In-
terests him ia that they bring him
more money and with his profit iu hib
pocket he is not deceived by tho mis-
representations of men who while
affecting tender solicitude for bis wel-
fare have'only their own saltish pur-
poses to serve.

Let County Records be Shown.
Whereas There was intro-
duced in the late Republican
county convention which met
in Guthrie and nominated a
ticket to be voted for this fall
by the people of this county
a resolution demanding an in-
vestigation of the records of
this county and pledging the
county commiBBiorjers to order
Euch investigation; and
Whereas Such resolution was
by such convention DENIED
both by the resolutions com-
mittee and by the convention
Whereas We believe the
people of this county have the
right ' to be shown " the con-
dition of the county records
and that such demand was
just. Now therefore be it
Resolved in the very lan-
guage of the Republican Reso-
lution itielf "That the county
commissioners nominated by
this convention by the ac-
ceptance of said nominations
pledge themselves individually
and collectively If elec ed to
cause a thorough investigation
by competent persons to bs
made of the books and records
of Logan county to the end
that the taxpayers may know
what has become of the public
moneys and tne manner in
which the records have been
kept and that if any defalca-
tions have occurred and ex-
cessive and fraudulent charges
have been made and allowed
the same may be recovered to
the county froi" the office-
holder and his bondsmen."

tral committee. T. S. Pulliam.
