The World can truthfully say-
that Guthrie contains no"wobly'
business men. Fvery one of
them is on a solid fuiancia
foundation and are doing a large
business. This is what makes
Guthrie the best city* in Okla
If Oklahoma and Indian Terri-
tories ever expect to rid them-
selves of distasteful legislation
and foreign officeholders they
will have to get a hustle on them-
selves. Statehood will solve the
problem in a satisfactory man-
ner and in quick time. Embrace
the opportunities that will be
offered at South McAlester.
It was a ridiculous sight to
watch our lire fighters last Satur-
day at the little fire that took
place at the Santa Fe water tank.
Water was not thrown over
twenty feet. In fact, there was
not enough power behind the
water to drown a good sized
mosquito. What would be the
result should a fire break out in
the business portion of Guthrie ?
Water could not be thrown on
top of any business house in the
The president's message is an
able document. He treats all
subjects in the proper spirit.
His foreign policy is to be com-
mended by the American people,
for every utterance made bv
President McKinley along this
line is thoroughly American, and
reminds us all that no mistake
was made at the late election.
His recommendations on the
"trust evil" are equally as able
as his other utterances on differ-
ent subjects. The document
should be read by the American
people with a great deal of satis-
Over in Blaine county, the
banner Republican county in
Oklahoma, James Thompson, a
colored man, was nominated on
the Republican ticket. Sequel:
"He was defeated." Gratitude!
gratitude! oh, gratitude, where
art thou?—Perry Sentinel. How
about Logan county, Lon?
Didn't the Republicans turn down
their colored brethren to a queen's
taste, and two years from now
these same Republicans will be
howling for unity among the
colored voters. Yes, gratitude is
all right if it goes one way.
The World is pleased that so
much interest is being taken in
the coming single statehood con-
vention that will assemble at
South McAlester, barring child-
like objections by the Capital of
that city. Much good can be ac-
complished at that meeting if
proper precaution is taken to
keep in the back-ground the
two-by-four political nincom-
poops that are certain to be there.
Business, not politics, should be
the watchword at tbat meeting. I
The World does not know what
the result of that meeting will
be, but it is to be hoped that the
convention will act so wisely that
congress will not dare to over-
look the action of that body.
Statehood is what we desire, and
the only practical statehood
would be that of the "single"
variety. What a magnlicent
state could be carved out of the
two territories. In point of pop-
ulation, size, diversity of soil,
climate and crops, and the in-
telligence and enterprise of their
people, no state in the west
would compare. The World is
for single statehood from start to
YES, A MISFIT.
The Southwest World is now
making a tight againt Greer's
getting his graft in a territorial
school book steal. But the South-
west World is rather inconsistant
inasmuch as it helped in the
election of a pair of commission-
ers who, it believed, were nomi-
nated at the instigation of the
machine manipulators, and men,
who it is said, will vote for any
and every measure that will help
Greer in his county printing
steals. If the World had wanted
to do a square thing by the tax-
payers of Logan county, it would
have opposed the election of
Cooper and Jackson. The World
is a misfit -politically speaking.
Yes, Mr. Coyle Clipper, we
plead guilty to fighting the school
book steal. That is a hobby of
the World—to tight anything
that has for its object the rob-
bing of Oklahoma taxpayers.
That the school book legislation
looked forward to by Mr. Greer
is a steal there can be no doubt,
and it should be the desire of
everybody to see that no more
jugglery be allowed with Okla-
homa's treasury. While the
World did use its influence tor
the election of the two county
commissioners that seems ob-
jectionable to our worthy but
misguided brother in the hamlet
of Coyle, it was no mistake but
one among the best things that
transpired at the late election.
Mr. Cooper has made a good of-
ficer and as such should be re-
tained on the board. As to the
other misfit, we again plead
guilty. The World neither
wears the garb of Republicism,
Democracy or Populistism. Life
is too short and too uncertain to
tie up the vagaries taught by
either of these parties. We go
free and unfettered, and how
much better it would be for
Coyle and her people if the Clip-
per could be induced to leave the
:amp of the great unwashed and
take a thorough cleansing.

Mr. Burbank, an artist in the
employ of the government, is at
Sac and Fox agency and is en-
gaged in painting the portraits
of some of the prominent mem-
bers of the Sac and Fox tribe.
He has also completed a portrait
ol Chief Keokuk aud will paint a
profile of him also. Keokuk is
said to be a fine subject for the
painter; his dignity and gravity
are impressive and his posing is
to be compared to a statute, sol
perfectly still is he whiih the
artist works. Mr. Burbank will |
probably do other portrait work
while in the territory. It is un-
derstood that the paintings are
for the Smithsonian Institute.
