changed courtesies here last night. Mr.
Mr. Bryan arrived here about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon and immediately sent one
of the men traveling with him to the
West hotel with a message to Mr. Taft
that he would be glad to call on him at
the hotel at 5:30 in the afternoon. Mr.
Taft sent word back that he would be
glad to see Mr. Bryan at that time. Mr

opportunity to meet Mr. Taft and after

crowds here who cheered him and de-
manded that he make a speech. Mr.

the crowd at the depot here to get to him
and shake his hand a man's arm was
broken. Mr. Bryan left last night over the
Omaha branch of the Chicago & North-
western for Mitchell S. D.

Flynn Bird McGuire and John H. Bur-
ford is only a part of what the
state of Oklahoma should collect on ac-
count of money taken out of the ter-
ritorial treasury to pay excessive extra v-
gent and unwarranted bills.
"The people of this state will remember
that during the campaign a year ago I
told them in many speeches of the out
rageous practices on the tax payers of
Oklahoma territoryterough the printing
of bills. When the legislature first con-
vened last December I asked that I be
authorized to have an expert accounting
made of territorial accounts and after
months of careful examination of old ter-
ritorial counts the conditions are found
to have been worse than we knew
them to be a year ago. This suit for
$195062.18 cents is only one of several
that should be brought to compel those
who unjustly obtained money from the
public treasury of Oklahoma territory and
to return that money to the public treas
ury and the tax payers of Oklahoma can
rest assured that no stone will be left un
turned to compel the return of every dol
lar unjustly taken from the people."

Guthrie Ok. Sept. 28 That Governor
Charles N Haskell intends to make things
interesting for the men who have been
attacking him from President Roosevelt
down to W. R. Hearst is evidenced by
statements made by him upon his return
from Chicago yesterday.
"The Republicans are trying to get
President Roosevelt to come to Oklahoma"
he said " I will pay the president's ex-
penses here if he will come. He will re-
ceive the courteous treatment due his of-
fitial position but politically well I
won't say just what I will do. There
would be nothing left for you to write to-
morrow. Governor Haskell addressed a large
number of Guthrie citizens on the steps
of the Royal hotel at 6:30. Last night he
issued an official statement embodying
his address and other remarks whichi
would test the quality of asbestos.
The governor refused to state his fu-
ture plans other than as indicated in his
address except to produce a telegram
from Chairman W. R. Finley of the Demo-
cratic state committee of Ohio urging
him to fill a week of speaking dates in
that state. He also received a telegram
today from J. W. Reynolds a member of
the Ohio Btate committee urging him
to sH;ak in Ohio and promising him a
rousing reception. Mr. Haskell stated
that he would go to Ohio in a few days
in answer to the invitations.
It is understood that suit will soon be
instituted at 6klahoma City against
Sheets of Ohio who came to Oklahoma a
year ago and attacked Haskell's record in

spend Sunday with friends.

AS TO THE
"Not Just as Good But Better
Values for the Money"
THE SANDERS-WRIGHT STORE
adopted this motto about three and one half
years ago and we have kept it before us ever
since. It has always been in our buyer's
minds in their searches through the Eastern
Markets. It is with us .when the merchandise
is delivered and marked out at the
retail prices. We adopted an iron clad
"absolutely one price and your money back if
you want it" sale. The first year we were re-
warded by a gain in sales of over 40 per cent;
then we saw our business double and this
year we have every reason to expect our sales
to be nearly three times what they were in
When we open our doors 1 uesday morn-
ing we will begin business in a store room oc-
cupying 7500 square feet with 85 feet of show
windows the largest exclusive "wearing
apparel" store in any city the size of Vinita in
We intend to strengthen and enlarge every
department in the store. The new "Toggery"
room will be used exclusively by the Millinery
and Ladies' Ready-to-wear Departments and
will be a spacious well lighted and pleasant
place to shop in.
Purchases for all other departments have
been heavier than usual and the space occu-
pied by Millinery and "Ready-to-wear" will
hardly be sufficient to take care of this increase
