There is no disguising the fact

The republican party of the In-
dian Territory placed itself on rec-
ord yestesdav in iV or of piecemeal

know definitely how the G. O. P.

I1 looks now as if s' itehood for
Indian Territory betore 1906 is
quite out of the question, for which
the people are indebted to the
Dawes Commission and other fed-
eral pie-eaters. -Oketnah Journal,
Take th*- federal officers out of
re,publican politics in the Indian
Territoiy and the party would look
like a punctured balloon. The
private citizen has little to gain ot-

mining the business to those who

average elective official in munici-

with personal politics and very lit-
he with official duties. He is t o
busy keeping the machine in repair
to waste time in doing his work,
and it is time that a - wholesome
lesson was taught to this class of
public servants. If a few careless
