Old Bob was granted a new trial
on account of inexcusable blunders
of sherrff C.V. Porter.
These mors grew out of the zeal
of the sheriff to secure a reward
of which he thought had been
offered, for the conviction of Bob
for which he applied soon after
the virdict was rendered and then
learned to his ohagrin that the re-
ward was For another man.
Tbe cost of the Sheirffi blunder amounts
to a round sarj for tbe comfy tw pay
Costs of tbe first trial was at follows
Olerks costs fW 03 Witness fees $218.15
Jury expense $100 T«tal $418 15 this d *

The second trial conies off in another couu

OUR CLOSING MESSAGE.
So long as wo are under territo-
rial government, tho delegate we
elect has no vote Sn congress and
oannot strengthen one party or
weaken the other. We are not
privileged to vote for the president
who appoints the officers who rule
over us. Having bo political pow-
er it is futile for us to divide on
partisan lines. When we enter
the voting booths we should for-
get that we are populist, democrats
or republicans, and order our
action as our local interest directs
In this sjjirit we formulato our
closing message of the campaign.
Wm.Cross the democratic nomi-
nee, is a business man of high
standing and pleasing address.
Partisan papers aro engaged in
a hot discussion; as to whether
hu reside* in Oklahoma or Kansas
In sober truth the facts are that
he is a tavling salesman and has
no fixed abode in either place.
In this contest ho stands
for the admission of Oklahoma
and Indian territory as ono state.
That means a long continuance
of tho evils of tarritorial govern-
ment to be succeeded by still great
er evils. It means the election of
a majority of the members of the
constitutional convention, and
state legislature by the people of
the Indian territory.
The oensus of 1000 shows that the
Indian territory had 11460
more children of school age than
Oklahoma/That there are three and
a third times as many illiterates.
The department of jastico esti-
mates the criminality ten times
greater in tho Indian territory than
in Oklahoma. We would be ab-
solutely under the power of
the Indian territory speculators
who oontroll its illiterate vote.
We would have to give them over
half of our school fund and all of
our public building fund. Con-
gress has thus far refused to bur-
den us with the Indian territory.
Why should we endorse the pro-
gram for which Cross stands.
B S McGuire is a man of fine
attainments, who worked himself
up to a front rank in the legal pro-
fession. Ho stands for the passage
of tho Flynn statehood bill now
pending in the Senate.
This means full citizenship for
us at an early date. It means for
us two U S Senators, and throe
congressman who ean vote.
Under its proviseions tho people
of Oklahoma elect overy member
of the constitutional eonvuntion
and state legislature. We will re.
tain every dollar of our publio
school fund, and spend all our pub-
lio building fund within the limits
of Oklahoma. We will have full
power to proteot the rights of our
neighbors who have leased sohool
lands. Wo will have a splendid
oppertunity to vote the state capi-
tal to Enid. Joinod with tho
Indian territory all osr interest
would be at their mercy. For the
land sake vote for MoGuiro and
statehood for Oklahoma with its

third term. lie represents official
extravagance inordinate greed and
higher taxes, Weeks ago the
Eoho published an expofe taken
from the reoords in tho County
Up to this time ho has not
attempted to offer any defense.
Mo honest defense can be made
Any pretended denial, or garbled
statement that he may oircu1 to on

the records should be entirely
ignored. Our publication was
made in ample timo for tho fulest
investigation and we stand ready
to verify by the records every item
in our statement.
The Wave says our expose if true
refleots on the EplEy board of com
missioners. That is a mistake.
Porter made quarterly reports to
the board which on their face
doubtless show his accounts all
straight. Ho would be a dull
grafter if they did not. The
board may havo plaoed to much
oonfidonce in theso reports, but
Porter has deceived many others.
Wo east no reflection on the com-
missioners. If Porter is elected
political grafters of all parties will
see a plain easy road to wealth,
blazed out, and we may expoct a
carnival of official extravagance.
Those who desiro tbe rebuke of
this kind of work should in justice
to themselves and the county vote

devices at the head of the tickets

Can you tall mo which of the
candidates for congress is for mix-
ed schools'? If MeGuire is for
mixed schools I will have to turn
him down. Yours Truly
Tho legislature of Oklahoma
passed a bill providing forsoperate
schools, it was passed by the unan
imous vote of all republicans demo
erats and populist and approved by
a republican govenor. Whites and
blacks are alike satisfied with it
and I know of no one in this ter-
ritory who wants mixed school.
Congress has nothing to do with
school matters in this territory or
in any state. MoGuiro favors tho
admission of Oklahoma with pros-
ent boundries. In that case our
own people choosi all the mem
bers of the constitutional ■ .inven-
tion, and legislature to niuka all
future laws concerning our schools
Cross favors tho admission of
Oklahoma and Indian territories
as one state, in that case the peo-
ple of tho Indian territory wil
elect a majority of the members of
the constitutional convention and
legislature, they might vote mixed
schools upon us, as many very
many of tho inhabitants of Indian
territory arc-negroes and Indians
He who wants a state dominated
by white people should vote for
Porters friends are claiming
that he has the colored vote solid
How on earth did a Texas demo-
orat get the eolored vote solid.

mands an investigation of the sher-
iff's office. The condition of
things was not known to the oditor
of this paper until tho oxpogo made
by the Echo. In view of tho in-
vestigation of tho books hastily
made by the Eoho man, it is the
right of every taxpayor to ask what
