Will De Any Amount of Federal
Patronage for New Appllc.i-.ts.
The People Interested.
Wlllo ho pcoplo ot Indian Terri-
tory arc not entitled to a vote In Uie
.approaching presidential election
there Is not a stato In tho Union
where tho pcoplo nro more vitally at-
fected or where a chango of admtnls-
trallon means the distribution of so
much patronage. This Is doubly In-
teresting from the fact that tlio Dem-
ocratic platform specifically ptovldes
for tho apiwlntment of horn? men In
all territories something which has
never been Itnown .In Indian Territory.
There aro moro good jobs nt tho
disposal of the ndmlnlstratlon In In-
dian Territory than In the combined
offices of tho state and Federal ap-
pointments in any one of a majority
of tho Western states.
There are fifteen Federal appoint-
.monts In Indian Territory that pay an
annual enlary of $5000 each; twenty
that pay $1000 and twonty that pay
$2500 to $3000. In addition to these
are tho smaller appointments. The
distribution Is (is follows:
Jn tho $5000 class nro tho throe
members of the Dawes commission
eight Federal judges threo members
cf the citizenship court and John D.
Benedict school superintendent. In
the $1000 class aro four United States
marshals four clerks of courts four
United States nttorneys and four
United States jailers. In tho Indian
division aro the agent and inspector
each nt $I0U0 and two mining trus-
tees at tho samo llguro. This hriugs
tho llguros down to tho $3000 and
$LG0O class. There Is a revenuo In-
spof'or who gels $3000 per year.
Each of the four marshals clerks an.l
district attorneys havo a chief clerk
;vho draws $2500 per year. Tho sec-
xetary to tho Dawes commission gets
52500 anO tho illsbur&Iug officer
gets the sami. There are beven town
alto commissioners wno draw $2500
and tho supervising engineer gets
The head of the different depart-
ments averago about $1800 per year
nlld tllOfo aro forty appolntmonU that
pay from $1500 to $1800 por year.
This Includes the twenty-five United

salaries ot $123$ to $1500. There Is
not n single o'no of these ofllcos that
aro filled by a vote of the people.
Thero are only six wlto nro under civil
service. A chango of administration
when the president so disposed would
mean a clean sweep of the slate from
top to bottom. A great many ot
theso appointees perhaps one-third
aro Democrats. A great many of the
appointments aro for four years and
would probably carry tho Incumbent
up to statehood but a Democratic
president anil a Democratic cabinet
could reap a harvest ot resignations
In order that they might shake their
own plum trees.
These officials do not Include the
pcstofflces of Indian Territory which
would also havo new postmasters.
There nre sovcnty-flvo presidential
postofflccs In tho territory. The best
of these pay salaries of $2000 to tho
postmasters and $1300 to his first as-
slstant. In addition to tho president-

GIVES FOUR REASONS WHY HE
WILL NOT DOLT.
Announces That He Has Not Sit-cld-ed
But Will Take Up the Fight
for Economic and Political
Reform After Election.
Lincoln Neb. July V j. Dry-
an today gave out tho following state-
ment: "I shall vote for Iark-r unl Davis
tho nominees ot tho Domorattc na-
tional convention and shall do so for
Iho following reasons:
"First Because the Democratic
ticket stands for opposition to Imper-
ialism while tho Republican ticket
stands for an Imperialistic policy. On
this Question which was tho para-
mount Issuo In 1900 and which must
remain an Important issue so long
nc an attempt Is made to held colon-
ics under tho Amorlcan flag on this
Issue the convention was unanimous
the platform emphatic and I have no
doubt' that tho candidate will carry
out fiio plntform.
Objects to the Rice Issue.
"Socond Mr. Rcosevelt Is luject-
lngthe race Issuo Into American poll-
tics nnd tills issue if it becomes na-
tional will make it Impossible to
consider economic questions that de-
mand solution. Tho election if the
Democratic ticket will put a nlotus
upon this attempt nnd pi-rmit the
race question U work Itself out with-
out the bitterness which Mr. Roose-
velt's conduct has engendered.
"Third Mr. Roosevelt stands for
the spirit of war. His friends presont
him as a man of blood and Iron. Ho
belloves In strenuousness nnd incul-
cates a low for warlike things. Tho
Democratic ticket stands for peace
for 'reason ami for arbitration rnthor
than fcr force conquest and bluster.
"Fourth Tho Democratic platform
declares In favor of tho reduction of
the standing nrmy and as this plank
was unanimously adopted there Is no
reason to bellove that a Democratic
success on this subject would bring
somo advantngu to tho people.
As to Finance and Trusts.
"For theso four reasons I foci Justi-
fied In supporting tho ticker but I'
shall not misrepresent tho stvtmtlon
or appeal for votes for the ticket
tipon fnlso grounds. A Democratic
victory will mean very little i'f any.
progress on economic questions; wi
long ns tho party Is under control' of
tho Wall street element. On the
money question Mr. Parker Is as tlmr
oughly committed to the sldo cf the'
financiers as Mr. Roosevelt. If he
does not go as far an tho Republicans
would In retiring sliver dollars. In es
tablishing branch bunks. In enlarging

Parker and Labor.
"So far as the labor questions arc
concerned we must nwalt Judge Par
kor's letter before wo shall l-now
whether tho laboring man has any-
thing to expect from his election. Tho
labor plank ns prepared by Judge
Parker's friends on the siib-contiriUco

adopted In favor ot nrbltrntion the

ker is silent or ambiguous on those
subjects it will mean that th finan-
cial Inllucnco back of lii-i will not
permit him to tako the labor t.dc on
these disputed questions.
