Tbe town of Vinita has never in
its history had an abler or more
active set of municipal officers
than the present one. The com

quite safe in tbe bands of these

there has been constant criticism.

Tbe number of substantial citi-
zens in proportion to tbe whole
population is greater in Vinita
han perhaps in any other city in
the territory and tbe secret is
4heir absolute independence in tbe
matter of politics. There are more
men in Vinita who don't care a
hooter what a man's politics is so
long as he is a reliable man than
in nearly any other place of tbe
fizoofit. - '
Last year Ibe rump faction of
the democratic party in Vinita de-
clared the enly way to get candi.
dates in the field in an election
was the primary election. The
disaster that overtook them last
jpring-was of some use it seems
inasmuch aatbe primsry has been
abandoned and the convention in.
ptaiied in Hb place. The number
of good citizens who will iollow
thette partisans to defeat ia dimin-
iLtd even from IbM year.
The necessity for paved streets
Is manifest to every observant
citizen in Vinita. r Tbe con-
slant heavy traffic on the streeisis
too much for dirt roads. It is a
great item of expense but the
city would as well get ready to
meet it. It will prove to be a
matter of economy to do It right
at thestart. Sewerage will also have
to be provided and it should not
be neglected as the health ot the
community is largely dependent
TURN ON THE LIGHT.
Tbe power and authority vested
in a grand jury is very imperfect
ly known or appreciated in the
Indian territory and perhaps
throughout the country. It is
really a body above the court it
self and is not subject to tbe dicta-
tion of the prosecuting attorney or
even the judge on tbe bench. In
Minneapolis not loeg ago in tbe
investigation of the boodlers of
of that city when the prosecuting
attorney attempted to shut off the
investigation the foreman of the
grand jury ordered him from the
room and proceeded with the in
vestigation which resulted in the
conviction of a number of tbe of-
fenders and the exile ot the mayor
who is even now a fugitive from
justicd. The scope and purposes
of the grand jury are imperfectly
understood by our citizens as a
whole but the wisdom and efficacy
of the grand jury system is com-
ing more and more to be appre-
ciated. There are a certain class
of crimes committed in which it
seems well nigh impossible to
reach tbe offenders and tbey go
tmwhipped of justice and the body
politic stands helpless. Not long
ago some deputy marshals went
out from Vinita and in seeking tbe
arrest of an alleged borse thief
shot to death an innocent and un-
armed citizen who happened to be
Htonninc at the same place. So
rr 4 o
far as any one seems to know tbe
boy that was killed never commit
ted a crime io all his life and bad
never been even accused of crime.
The friends ana relatives of tbe
slain are tbusfar unable to get tbe
matter before a grand jury. If
these officers were justifiable in
what they did and that ia not im
probable that matter should have
the calcium light of the grand
jury thrown on it.

an expensive luxury to the nation

liable to cause pneumonia which is so

It should be remembered in cooking
fresh vegetables that a high degree of
neat continued witiiout intermission
until the vegetable is cooked produces
tne best result. If vegetables are to be
boiled see that the water in which they
are placed is actually boiling' and is
kept at that temperature until the veg
etable is tender. If the water needs
replenishing use boiling water add-'
ing no more than is absolutely neces-
sary. X. y. Sun.
