The republican national commit-
tee met in Washington last week
and confuted its sias. lhe> con-
fess that their act on in the t bica«>
convention of last year was wrong
luc) «it> ai a loss to know what
to do when in session and every
thing mentioned postponed for ac
t)r-„ , ,, ;uture time for tht
aaks of harmony. The only gre:.
euori tte committee made was t<
get the progressive element bacl-
into the party. They dared no
call a neetint- of the party for fear
of another spllt.

Joining Cherokee county on th.
east and the people of this county
buying only from 20 to 100 copse:
* erk of a Tahlequah publication
Is no mystery whee one knows tha:
that many of said Tahlequah pub!
cauon couid be picked up wh r
they are lying on the street tt
Utter part of any week. Whether
thrown away by those receiving
them or by the office force. When
they want the Arrow they come tc
the office end cet it as they are no
found loose on the streets.
We venture the suggestion that
the communications published In a
certain Tahlequah paper, not the
Sur.. under the title, "Voices in the
Air." are conceived and wr.tten in
i lower room of Ue I^nd Office
buiding and on lie desk of that
publication. They bear the ear-
marks of the article in which a
Tahlequah physician offered to fur-
nish hia automobile to head a
booster trip. when there was not a
physician here who had an automo-
bile Speaking about mudtolea in
our streets, when there are none
such, is wrong. The character of
the soil here ia such that mud is
ab*«:t. there only being a little
slush such as can be found upon
:he brick pavements of streets of
muddy towns. It is all wrong for
a paper, pretending to be the boost-
er sheet of a town, to make state-
ments of disorders that do not ex-
ist merely to make it appear that
they are turning the universe OTer
n the Interest of the town when
n fact, they are will ng to throw
-ut false Impressions for the sake
rf making It appear that they are
:ve wires booming the town. Our
natural read-beds are the remark of
strargers who visit our city n the
wet season of the year and for a
ocal paper, for the sake of bocst-
ng itself to make the assertion that
his is a muddy town Is an imposi-
tion upon the town and should
bring upon such publication the
condemnation It deserves. Action
and not wind Is what builds a
town. Cyclones are destructive.

At tha time It looks as If we
might have a "white Christmas,
the first In a number of years. Bt
fore the climate changed so muci.
we used to have a good deal o:
snow at the Christmas season, bu
during recent years the weather h-*'
often b<*eti similar to that pre
«£.lent in the fail.
The Farmers Stat* Bank opened
for business Saturday ac.l it is sa.u
that deposit* amounting to some
thing like 17,000 were made b.
fore the hour of noon. Someone
was beard to say that he did not
know that tbore was that much
money ia Park Hill, all of which
proves that "things are not alwa)*
what they seem."
Quarterly conference of the M. E.
church. South, was held in the
brick public school house one night
last week. About ten ministers
were present at the conference
wh ch was presided over bv Pre-
siding Elder Brooks of Muskogee.
The sermon delivered by Mr. Brooke
was one of the best heard in the
Methodist puiplt in some time
There was * Christmas . te:-

Spring Misson at Welling Monday
night. Several from ibis commuaity
who had Intended go e_£. to set ana
be seen—and to see s. aietXH!y else,
perhaps—were prevented by reason
of the inclemency of the weather,
as the walking tn too bad to say
the least and no extra trains were
running, and the river was too
deep, the roads too muddy, and the
night too dark, anyway.
