THE COUNTY CONVENTION.
The Democratic county convention
heM Pat unlay afternoon wan perhaps
the nioBt representative gathering of
Democrats held In Gulhrlo for many
years The convention was -white
throughout entirely harmonious and
the delogntes buckled to their work

' adopted was Bonslblo and pertinent
and left no doubt as to the attitude of
Logan county Democraoy.
The statehood plank places the en-
emy where It bolongs. That the He-
publican party at Joss for solid
ground has deserted Its former stand
1 on the question of statehood Is a fact
patent to nil. Tho switch to the Ham-
ilton measure la a reversal of the Re-
publican position of two years ago and
a usurping of tho Issue mado by tho
Democratic party. There are some
features of the Hamilton bill that are
objectionable and do pot meet with
favor from the runk and file of Dem-
ocracy over tho territory. Thtso feat
ures however contemplate bitterly
partisan phases alono such as tho
suffrage clause and tho school land
exemption clause. However when the
chief tenets of the Hamilton bill are
thoroughly understood by Democrats
of tho territory there will be no lack
of warii-th In Its advocacy since as a
whole it merely roflects tho Enid plat-
form. The platform touchoB ably and
consistently all those questions which

The convention was entirely har-

wet settled and when the meeting ad-
journed every phase of strife and
factionalism had been Bwept away.
Edgar Jones may well feel proud ot
tho confidence reposed ln him by the
Democracy of Logan county. At the

expression of the rations of en-
dorscment for him could not havelwm.
