Mother and Daughter,
That Oklahoma City is the
largest, most progressive, modern
and metropolitan citv in the two
territories; that she has the largest
number of wholesale and retail
five-story buildings, manfactories,
and industries; teat she has more
miles of paved streets and the best
equipped street railway of any
city in the territory is too well
known to lie questioned, and that
she is destined to become the
chief city of the Great Southwest,
is conceded by all far-seeing men.
the daughter of Oklahoma City,
the heathiest and handsomest of
her offspring, is just south of her
present borders, situated on the
sightly table-lauds across the Ca-
nadian river. Blessed with pure
water, free from the smoke of
Greater Oklahoma City; with soil
unsurpassed for richness, above
the miasma of the low lands of the
river, possessing nil the attributes
that go to make a place desirable
for homes, the time is not far dis.
taut, when Capitol Hill will be-
come known throughout the land
as the handsomest portion of the
metropolis. Although she has
had the ceremony of incorporation
performer! and has tnken unto her-
self another name, she is still
proud of her stately mother and
rejoices at all times in her pros-
perity and growth, and in case of

hard on the citizens along the line
of the proposed road that they

the present traffic of the Santa
Fe fur the short distance it would
run parallel with that road, hence
their fight against it; but how
about the Irisco? Is it simply a
combine to keep out competition
south of the river, or the begin-
ning of a battle between steam and
electricty? If the railroads can
combine and keep an intururban
line from running south, cannot
the same combine keep them from
running in any direction?
Put Yourself In Her Place.
Louisville and New York have
just passed through a nunicipnl
election. In both places the result
is the same; the reform ticket de-
feated and thousands of voters
practically disfranchised by a dis-
honest count. In both cities the
election returns will be contested
by patriotic men who know that
they are people, and who know
that election returns should ex-
press the will of the people, not the
will of a political machine.
These franchised citizens of
Louiivisle and Now York are now
in a position to understand exact-
ly why a woman wants to vote.
It isn’t pleasant to be disfran-
chised, is it, gentleman? Every
drop of patriotic blood boils in
}o'ir veins, just as it does in, ours
at the thought that you have been
defrauded of the most sucred right
of citizenship, the right of self
government for which our fore-
fathers fought at Bunker Hill and
