The W. C. T. V. Territorial Conven-
tion held at El Reno the 12th to loth,
inclusive, was one of marked success.
Pvery session, of which there were
three each day, was full of good
things. Papers were read on various
subjects that bespoke careful study in
the interest of the homes of our Okla-
homans. Reports of the committees
showed much good work done in many
of the forty departments of work tak-
en up by the W. C. T. U. Those of
Medal Contest, Petition, Flower Mis-
sion, Jail and Prison, Evangelistic,
Union Signal and Press, Children’s
Savings Bank, Anti-Narcotics and
Opiates.Non-Alcoholic Medication and
Systematic Giving, were especially
helpful. Woods county carried off all
the banners given by the territory for
most work done. One for greatest
gain in membership in the county,and
also one for local, Fairview with 98
members receiving this one. The
Medal Contest, Superintendent Miss
Gertrude Motter, with grace, received extended to all.
the banner for greatest number of con-
Woods count)-has 31 Unions with a
membership of over 7<hi. Over
has been raised for the various depart-
ments, lectures, literature, etc. Mrs
Annie L. Wright gave an apprecia-
tive talk on the L. T. L. department
j and said there are 52 bands now in op-
J On Thursday evening, Mrs. L. EUa
! Hartley who made the trip to Jerusa-
lem, charmed the audience with her
graphic description of the tour, hair-
; breadth escapes from death and the
Backsheesh beggar, and surprised all
1 by introducing a number of costumes
j of the Orient, gracefully draped on
some of the youth of our land.
* On Friday evening the Diamond
Medal Contest was held, live of the
speakers being from Woods county.
Each one did well and were highly
commended, but as we had one dia-
mond medal in Woods county, the
speaker from Stillwater took the one
We must not forget the excellent
banquet on Friday, given by the local
W. C. T. U. In all it was an occasion
to be long remembered. Each delegate
went home feeling that it was good
to have been there. We hope many
will attend the convention to be held
I next year for each is better than the
j last. \V od.-, county W. C. T. U. ofti-

Lyons, 0. T., Sept. 7, ^04.
Pursuant to a call made by the
socialists of Woods county, con-
vening in mass convention at
Ringwood, 0. T., September 3rd,
in the third commissioner district
for the purpose of selecting a
candidate for commissioner in
said district, accordingly Hon.
Wm. Stone was unanimously-
chosen The convention passed
the following resolutions:
In as much as Henry Bassman
claims we made a mistake innom-
nating him at the convention at
Alva, we therefore drop him from
the socialist ticket.
Furthermore, we do not indorse
or fuse with any party or person
who does not believe in the prin-
ciples of the socialist party.
Done by order of convention.

Carriage Factory and Marble Works
Why can’t Alva induce men of
means to come here and establish
the above industries. We have
been informed that there is no
place nearer than Anthony or
Harper where a man can get a
carriage painted. Nearly every
farmer has a carriage and we
have the best roads on earth. A
carriage factory would certainly
be a good investment.
There are no marble works
worthy of the name within a hun-
dred miles of Alva. We believe
that if the matter was properly
presented a profitable marble
works plant might be established
A Campaign Bargain.
Everyone need-* a dally paper with the
full Associated Press dispatches during the
present political campaign and during the
exciting events of the Japanese war. It is
now very easy to get one of the very best
dailies in the southwest, as the Daily Okla-
homan has just announced that for only one
dollar it will send the Oklahoman trom now
until January 1, is*>5, to any one sending In
their cash subscription on or before Sep-
tember! The regular subscription rate is
four dollars for a year. The Oklahoman
ghes by far the largest and best market re-
l».rts of any paper in Oklahoma aud it pub-
lishes full accounts of all the war news and
everything in politics just as soon as it hap-
pens. No one can afford to be without it
when it can be had so cheaply right now
Subscriptions should be sent at once before
this offer expires.
