and get their mail in town just be-
cause the new routes as established
do not accommodate them as the old
ones did. We have heard of petitions
to abolish the long route service, and
we have heard of some who accredit
the establishment of the long routes
to the postmaster, and are going to
make it disagreeable for him. We
wish to counsel the use of good horse
sense and some patience in this matter.
You do not know yet that your service
is hurt. The new carrier may be ac-
commodating, as efficient, and in all
respects as good as your present car-
rier. Your mail, in all probability
will be delivered almost as punctually.
After the new service; is instituted,
then properly petition the department
for such changes that .you can show

The only difference that can be
made, is whether the republicans of
this state stand for the present day
standard of politics and clean govern-
ment, or whether the regime of Mark
Hanna and the dollar mark has return
ed. The fellows who represent the
big interests are striving with all the
means that money can command. The
other fellows are making the detour

ity. On the issue depends whether

The closing of the (republican nat.
ional committeeman fight recalls olden
times when the "interests" were busy
managing affairs themselves and
those who paid tribute to whomsoever
might be in control.
From a democratic standpoint the
fight is of interest only in the confes-
sion made by those of the old regime,
who affirm that with present condi-
tions there is "no chance for a pros-
pect" and that a change is a necessity.
National Committeeman, Jim Har-
ris, whose slogan is and has been
since the time of the late lamented
1912 national campaign, "get togeth-
er", has found that the old regime does
Further hearing of the Oklahoma
rate cases, set for March 6, has been
deferred until April 17; because Judge
Youmans could spare only a few days
now and the state needs further time
in preparing the freight side of the
cases the matter was continued with-
out formal application ntid ruling.
Attention is called to the compara-
tively light cost of this fight to any-
one, regard being had to the tremend-
ous importance of the subject matter in
controversy. The state declares the
issues vital; that if the railroads win
ultimately the most effective blow
ever dealt to the regulation will have
been struck; that not only a two-cent
but a three-cent or even higher rate
can then be proved non-compensatory,
and existing freight schedules any-
where can be successfully attacked.
