Thero Is trouble In the wost half of

Republican mooting did not end as ex-
pected. Republicans outsldo the ward
got up the mooting for the purpose.
It Is claimed of tocahlng the 'stnl-
warts" of that wawl tholr duty and

Ho began by thanking the outside
gentlemon for coming Into tho ward to
teach tho Republicans tholr duty but
wanted to know In return what they
Intended to do. Ho was tired of this
deception of lining other fellows up
nnd demanded to know If those samo
gentlemen were going to vote for Bur-
ton for street commissioner. It was
useless to dony thnt herotoforo the
Second ward hud votod against overy
colored candidate and the fact might
as well bo acknowledged. These same
men who demand tha( the negroes
vote against Al DoWItt. the Independ-
ent Republican candidate for city
tlcrk will scratch Burton on the Re
publn an ticket They ask the" negro
to vote 'or straight" while they will
iotc for at least one Democrat. He
believed In honesty In these things
He did not believe in deceiving tho

long Republican nnd tho colored men
had more right to vote for him thnn

At times during tho Judgo'a scathing
remarks to tho ljly whites and those
outsiders who insist on ruiinlng Sec-
ond ward politics the oxcltomont rose
to fever heut. Altogether It was a
lively scene and the frequent yelling
"Give Jt to 'em Judge" showed that
tho negro auditors realized the truth

cil Bill No. 50 as a law duly enacted
by the legislature the A. nnd M. col-
lege at Stillwater sow ?64000 appro-
priation Instead of $10000. The explan-
ation of this Increased appropriation
occurred from tho fact that when the

Barnes without hie approval the con-
ference committee of both houses on
appropriation inserted In tho bill nn
Item of $8000 for a barn for the col-

out any appropriation nnd now thnt

WISE AND TIMELY ADVICE.
Sunday's Capital contained a well
wrltton and tlmoly odltorlnl on tho
duty and responsibility of the citizens
in city elections and especially tho
citizens of Guthrlo In tomorrow's elec-
tion from which The Lender extracts
this sensible paragraph:
"This Is why city governments aro
so inefficient and scandalous. They
ure carelessly Impatlontly foolishly
given over to persons who aro neither
efficient nor honorable and who seek
city offices for what can be got for
themselves out of the opportunities
There is not the slightest Coubt that
our contemporary knows exactly what
it is talking about. It has for years
ben Inside the closed doors with the
city macljjne while the city govern-
ment was run In the exclusive inter-
est of the men whom It Inferentlnlly
refers to as seeking office for what
the can get out of it. The Capital's
