Mr. Fulton did while in congrens county $8,400, for what maa who
But now. here let the howl of
the repulican papers cease, the
salaries will be paid oniy on a
basis of the present census re-
port. The Herald with keen ( ?)
foresight, proclaims a steal of
110,800 because during the next
three years the difference
would be that much. It's tak-
ing considerable upon ones
self to proclaim to the world
that a force of officers are go-
ing to steal a certain amount
in the future. The Herald, al-
though it takes a whole page
to do it, makes gross misrepre-
sentations as to the laws con-
cerning salaries. It claims a
certain excess payment of sala-
ries because the census does
not quite come up to the basis
expected. It ignores the state-
ment made in its own columns
a short time ago that if the ba-
sis was found incorrect that &
settlement would be made
whereby the matter would be
adjusted without the county
losing a cent
Behold the above from the Guy
mon Democrat, which is equivalent
to the acknowledgement of the of-
ficials they all along knew they
were grafting. The Dext thing to

census to suit their own ends draw
salaries and brazenly call men
liars who expose the same would
not say for a second they would
not have kept up their little game
until some man with nerve enough
to call their bluff c%me along?
We would have saved the county
the whole $10,800, but fudga Davis,
who lays awake nights howling for
reform and yelling robber at every
land commissioner in the county
until no one in thehouBecan sleep,
says he is going fo hold onto his
little gob of graft of $800 a year,
or make the taxpayers of Texas
county dig up $2,400. In the opin
ion of Judge Burford on page eight
this mediocre specimen of legal
luminosity is entitled to nothing
more than $1,200 and his clerk
hire, but if he attended strictly to
business he could save Texas
county $<>00 a year right here. We
have never seen a political reform-
er that we didn't watch, and we are
not going to make any exception
in this lusty howler who is throw-
ing a lot of dust to detract attention
from his own rotten works. $2,400
for graft in three y.-ars and for
work that any intelligent laborer
or farmer can transact! And $000
a year for deputy hire so that the
incumbent of the otfice has nothing
to do but see that he gets his graft!
How do you like it? Pay it back,
Judge Davis! Pay it back.—
Freely Award* Contracts
The third big contract has been
let to outside concerns thus far
during Haskells' administration
notwithstanding the protests of
Typographical Unions and of Has-
kell's promises, early in his career
as executive, to have all such work
done at home. During the past
few days the Stephens Publishing
company, of Columbia, Mo., was
given the contract to print two
volumes of the state supreme court
reports, the contract price being
$2,300, and the Pipes-Reed com-
pany of Kansas City was given
a contract by the state library
board to furnish two thousand
volumes for the state libray at
$1.25 per volume. Several weeks
ago another contract was given to
the Pipes-Reed company of Kan-
sas City to print the revised edition
of the Oklahoma statutes, the con-
tract price being $24,000. This
makes a total of $28,000 of the
state's money expended for print-
ing outside the state by the demo-
cratic administration, all contracts
being let, too, when there are
Oklahoma concerns well fitted to
do the work —State Capitol.

through by local postmasters and
allowed by government inspectors.

Congressman Fulton's speech
was listene d to by a decent sized
audience, a large part of whom
were Republicans, women and
children, and of course he wai
given a respectful hearing. He
lambasted the trusts but gave
no remedy for their destruction, or
the curbing of their power.
He condemned the protective
tariff system of the government
but gave no remedy to protect the
American laborer, should the sys-
tem be abolished.
He forgot the amount of the bond

A number of other things that
the people want to know Mr. Ful-
ton forgot to discuss. So far as
the gra mmar goes, Mr. Fulton's
speech wa6 all right but it fell far
short of the address a Congress-
man should deliver. It was wholly
unconvincing and not a Republi-

who said he would scratch his tic-
ket in November. The speech
changed no votes here.
