The illiteral "Harrison Gazette"
takes the News-Republican to task
for failure to give recognition to
the people of Gotebo for the noble
work they did in relieving the un-
fortunates of Snyder. In conclud-
ing the article, after making other
unkind thrusts, the following in-
dictment is made:
"Gotebo did her share in an un-
ostentatious manner, and when the
News-Republican, who claims to
have been on the ground, ignores
the people of Gotebo for their part
in the work of .relief, it is a rank
Now, just why the News-Repub-
lican, of all the papers in the terri-
tory, should have been singled out,
as an object of special attack by
the "Gazette" is certainly past com-
prehension. However, if that pa-
per's indictment were just and were
guilty of discrimination, and had
done the people of Gotebo the
smallest injustice, we would be only
too glad to make sue amends as the
nature of the offense demands; but
such is not true. We have done
our sister city no injury—have not
discriminated against her, or with-
held any praise to which she is en-
titled. We know the generous
people of Gotebo did all within
their power to succor the distressed
at Snyder; that they were among
the first to offer aid and to supply
the wants and needs of the wounded.
Nobody denies it; everybody admits
it, and applauds them for their gen-
erosity and magnanimity. No one
I would withhold from them this re-
The News-Republican has not re-
fused to do so, nor has it discrimi-
nated against these good people.
Hundreds of towns in the country
have done noble work, and all are
entitled to credit, but we were un-
able to ascertain the names of all
who have contributed, nor have we
attempted to do so, because the ef-
fort would have only resulted in
making discriminations, as it would
have been impossible to secure a
complete list of those who gave aid.
We notice that the "Gazette"
made mention of no donations or
reference to services rendered other
than those coming from Gotebo.
Why? Was it in the disreputable
business of ignoring the people of
other town who are entitled to credit
for their generosity? It looks so—
that is from the -'Gazette's" view-
The fact is the "Gazette" could
not exist if it were deprived of its
assumed prerogative of jumping
on everybody and everything
I with both feet, whether right
01 wrong. We like to see papers
I stand up for their people, but it is
J a bad policy to assume that their
j rights have been trampled upon and
theu proceed te hold up a contem-
porary to scorn for something of
which it is not guilty.
Everett Purcell, of the Enid
"Events", has an idea that nothing
happens unless he is an eye-witness
to the occurrence. Everett is a very
young man, and the people over-
look a great deal he says in his
paper. In one issue he will un-
mercifully lambast the governor,
and even went to the extreme of
filing charges against him in Wash-
ington, but the people all laughed,
and say: "Oh, its only Everett",
and let the matter pass. The next
issue he will come out teeth and
toenail for the governor for re-ap-
When the News-Republican pub-
lished a little story about being at
Frederick at the time President
Roosevelt was there, Everett said
the wife of the editor of the News-
Republican was a wash-woman, and
that Roosevelt was never there.
He dosen't think now that there
was a cyclone at Snyder at all, be-
cause he didn't see it—and because
it wasn't in his paper, of course it
A little experience will bring
Everett out all right.
John Hoch, who, by his own con-
fession, is a multubigamist, and
who is charged by the police with
having married at least forty women
in the past fifteen years, has been
found guilty of murder, by a Chi-
cago jury, and the death sentence
rocommended. His crime was the
murder of his last-known wife. He
had been married to her but
few weeks, when she became sud-
denly ill and died. He formed an
alliance with the dead woman's
sister and securing her money*tied
from Chicago. In quest of re-
venge this woman notified the pol-
ice that Hoch had poisoned her
sister. He was found a week later
in New York and brought back to
Chicago for trial which resulted in
a sentence of death.
It seems that a man may marry
any number of times and even,
murder a surplus wife or two, but
he must not upon pain death
swindle a sister-in-law.

CLEAN YOUR PRE/IISES.
This is the time of year when the
town should be cleaned up. Every
street and alley needs more or less
attention. Refuse and garbage
should be removed and lime freely
used, so as to put the town in good
sanitary condition. Unless this
work is done there will be numer-
ous cases of sickness before the
summer is far advanced.
-Now is the proper time to act be-
fore hot weather sets in. The more
thoroughly the town can be cleaned
the better will be the health of the
people, for sanitation means health.
Every resident should make it
part of his business to see that his
own premises are as clean as it
