Battle of New Orleans in 1815 and his
father was an American soldier and
took part in that victory that made
'Old Hickory" Jackson famous and
Dresldent of the United States. Mr.
Fortner bad been a consistent mem'
ber of the Sooth Methodist church
from his early manhood and was also
a member of the Masonic fraternity
but on account of old uge had nob af
filiated with the order for many years.
The Interment will take place at

While the Register is not mak
ing any positive predictions in
statehood matters it does look as
tboaib the chances are decidedly
against the passage of the Omnibus
bill. Those wise old owls posing
as democratic senators seem will
ing to follow Quay to almost soy
length balking only at bis modest
request that they out their own
throats by the adoption of a clot
ure rule. Not so very long ago
. those same senators were striving
to keep Quay out of the senr'.e
charging him with all manner of
disreputable methods in obtaining
his seat yet today they submit
themselves blindly to his lead and
aid unquestioningly in his moet
daring schemes to make state?
solely for the personal aggrandize-
ment of himself and friends and
to give Dennis Flynn a show to
get into the United States Senate.
The democratic senators are not
strengthening the party ic this
territorv by their present attitude
toward us. The people of the In-
dian Territory regard themselves
as human beings of at least average
intelligence and tbey do not look
kindly npon those who treat them
as mere political chattels to be
kicked about at the will of schem-
ing tricksters and allowed no voice
in the disposal of questions materi-
ally affecting their future. Pur-
cell Register. 1
