Enid. Auc. 29. Charles West has
made public his answer to the attack
on him by Governor Frantz and Attor
nev General Cromwell through a
Guthrie paper in which it was charged
that Mr. West had asked an outrarf
eous fee for the work lie did while
assisting Mr. Cromwell in prosecuting
the cases against the railroads or
rather while prosecuting these cases
in the name of the territory with the
consent of the attorney general.
Mr. West's answer gives the lie di
rect to the statements made in the
article referred to and in support of
this position he has made public the
correspondence that passed between
him and Mr. Cromwell prior to tho
time when he was dismissed from the
service of the territory
It will be remembered that it was
is said threatened to burn the house.
Three negroes Jim Tatum John Jen-
kins and Judge Peters porter at the
house are under arrest.
Peters admits that considerable
drinking 'had been done during the
evening and it is the opinion of the
police that the inmates were drunk
when the fire started.

that the governor and attorney general
had a severe attack of "cold feet"
and were insincere in their desire to
have the big corporations brought to
time. Mr. West's correspondence with
Mr. Cromwell shows that West was in
full charge of the suits rather than
assisting that the attorney general
did not even know what the actions
were based on and makes it appear
that it was the blundering methods
of the latter together with his over
weening desire to reap all the glory
for the work which Mr. West was do-
ing that caused the latter to break
with him and invite dismissal.

HUBBARD TO DEBATE.
Tuka I. T. Aug. 29. Hon. James
S. Davenport Democratic nominee
for congress from the third district has
issued a challenge for a series of de
bates to Hon. Frank C. Hubbard the
Republican nominee. Mr. Davenport
addressed a challenge last week but
so far has had no reply from the Mus
Mr. Davenport's letter to Mr. Hub-
bard was very plain as to his position
on various questions before the people
of the new state at this time and at
the same time it asked Mr. Hubbard
several questions on political subjects
that the Vinita candidate believed the
people had a right to know before they
cast their vote.
Mr. Hubbard however has adopted
the usual political course for his party
in Oklahoma and is making a cam
paign sub rosa. He did not find it
convenient even to give Mr. Daven
port an answer to his letter but hid
himself underneath a life-sized silence
and refuses to tell the voters what
they may expect should lie be elected
to congress. "
