Despite tfio love of war which still

But when notions nt war are so
tender to one anothor war as a seri-
ous undertaking can not long hold its
place in the minds of serious people.
It 1b loo much like a test of endurance
between two angry citizens who bat-

shudder nt the thought of killing.
When bullets are made with humane
reference the foolishness of fighting
becomes apparent. A court of arbi-

The endorsement of the Democracy
of Washita county of tho candidacy of
Judge Richard A. Blllups for national
committeeman places him actively in
the race for that honor. It Is a well
known fact that the western part of
Oklahoma has never hM either the
honor of national committeeman or
the nominee for delegate to congress
and judging by returns of the last elec-
tion it is evident that tho west side
is entltlod to somo recognition from
the Doniocracy of the territory.
Judge Billups Is a young man of
unquestioned Integrity nn exemplar
citizen and a zealous advocate of the
principles of Democracy. During his
residence of nearly six years In the
territory ho has never been absent
from a territorial convention or a
meeting of the territorial central com-
mittee. As a party organizer he has
few equalR and unhesitatingly re-
sponds to nil party calls with his time
and means. Ho Is well known through
out the territory having so. ved as
socrotary of the territorial central
committee for tho post two yoars and
so far as we have learned his services
have been entirely satisfactory. In
aspiring to tho hlghost honor within
tho gift of the partj we believe ho
irdfcsesfitls every oss'etidal qualification
that tho high position requires. He
entered this race at the earnest solic-
itation of Democrats from evory por-
tion of the territory and ho will go to
tho Anadarko convention with suffi-
cient strength tb elect him as we bo-
Hevo. on tho first ballot.
Wo again say to tho Democracy of
Oklahoma that If In their wisdom
they tee tit to bestow this high honor
upon our fellow cltisen. Hint tlieir
trust will never bo betrayed but will
ever bo guarded ns a sacred trust.

SPIRIT OF THE O
OKLAHOMA PRESS. O
Reno Globe: Canadian Dotnoc-
is for Hearst and they said it
no uncertain voice. The Kan
sas City and Chicago platforms are
irood enough for the Oklahoma Democ-
racy. Jefferson Review (Rep.): It looks
like Hon. Hdgar Jones of Guthrie was
in the lead for tho Democratic nom-
ination for delegate to congress. Ho
has been elected twice to tho legisla-
ture from a district when over half of
the voters are negroes.
Delegate McGulro is bofore the peo-

strength of jutting sent out twice as
much garden seed as any other con-
gressman. If the people of tho ter-
ritory wanted nothing more than a
seed agent at Washington Mr. Mc-
Gulro would probably All the bill but
if they want a real live representative I
of their interests they will have to
look elsewhere. The people of the
territory are entitled to more than a
bunch of garden seed from their rep-
resentative. Watonga Herald: It seems quite
certain now that an attempt will be
made by tho old Cleveland appointees
in Oklahoma to send a Parker dele-
gation to St. Louis. Tho rank and lile
of tho Democrats of Oklahoma are for
.Hearst and a Parkor delegation would
by no moans represent Okluhoma
Democracy. If the voters of tho Dem-
ocratic party do their duty in select-
ing delegates to Anadarko there will
be no doubt about the complectlon of
the delegation to St. Louis. Hearst
should have tho Oklahoma delegation
because the people are for him.
Grant County News: It is clearly a
demonstrated fact that Edgar W
Jones is the only candidate seeking
the congressional nomination who has
the united support of his own county.
In Noblo county Doyle and Bowles are
fighting: in Oklnhoma county Cross
and Taylor; in Comanche Ross and
Gore; in Greor Mathews and Cross;
in Kingfisher Kano and Jones; In
Pottawatomlo Jacobs Is fighting Max
oy. At this distance It looks like
Jones will get tho nomination before
the 10th ballot. Tho Nows doos not
approve of the fight being made for a
west sldo man solely on tho grounds
that he Is a west sldo man. Nominate
the strongest man and there is no
question but that Jones Is the strong-
est. GLOBE SIGHTS.
An Atchison man rcaontly asked
a girl to marry him. She promised
but woman like refused to bo satis-
fied and asked him it ho had over lov-
ed any one else. To which he replied:
Yes dozens of them. Indeed to be
honest I would havo been married
years ago and not at liberty to love
you If something had not Interfered.
I beliove that you are tho third girl
to whom I havo been engaged and
you are the fourth I havo asked to
marry ma 1 shall neer love any of
the girls the way I loved tho first. You
are not as pretty as some I havo lov-
ed; neither are you as amiable but

are sensible of good family a good

you are not original: a woman of any
originality would have shown It by re-

help your father than pull him back
