NEWKIRK, O. T„ OCT. 18 —(Spec-

fusion candidate for congress, in the
city are greatly amused over a hap-
pening that shows Neff to be can-
did. if not discreet, he has a pretty
little daughter attending the public
school who Is som«: mes teased by
her republican schoolmate? about
her father's candidacy.
Several days ago they told little

"Well pa; a : a- s himself that he

we push him fur r. -nomination, und ui«o
to show you what he thinks of tho deni-
< rate and the democratic .party. Un-
der date of January 29th, Mr. Calla-
"I am In receipts of letters from
oral counties assuring me of their dele-
gations and assuring me that a great
fight is on against me. I am fully satis-
tied that fusion is a thing of tho past.
"J. Y. CALLAHAN."
Under date of March, 19th, 1«IR, Ml
Callahan writes me further:
"Yours of tho 16th Just at hand, and
though sick, I has11 n to unawer. I am
.-:ire you aro having the fight of your
lif \ and you have my sympa&hy. I often
wonder what will bac.ome of us us a par-
ty. Oh. I sometimes think it more than

everybody almost, Is a boodW r? I have
Just returned from a long Interview with
Senator .Ulan and Senator Harris. They
compliment me on having a man like
you at tho helm. I explained to them the
condition of things w hen you took charge
and how they are now.
I also explained what a trial you are
having. They auy we have a harder lot
«f newspaper men they knew of, but ad-
vised to pursue a straight forward
course. I saw that article in tho El Reno
Globe. O'Rourke's official paper. They
say tJie democrats don't dare demand the
county. They and Butler are going to
See Senator Jones, and have him shut
them off. They say If he can't do It, for
us to proceed to nominate a ticket and
the democrats will bo held responsible
for the defeat of fusion. Jones don't
want any contention from the democrats
If then- Is, our people from their dis-
tricts in tho states where we have help-
ed the democrats, will demand tho can-
didate, There Is Bland and Clark of
Mlssurl; Lentz, of Ohio, and King, of
Utah, all elected by populist yotes.
"J. Y. CALLAHAN."
Now farther is what Mr. Callahan has
to say as to what he thinks of democrats
and thn democratic party. Under date
of February 28, 1898, he writes me, say-
"I want to say that whllo 4t Is a fact,
that we have entered Into another agree-
ment with them, he democratic party,
leading to coalition In the* nation, as well
as state elections, we aro Joining hands
with a see ret enemy fhat willl knife us
at. any time, nnd especially so when they
feel that they can succeed.
"J. Y. CALLAHAN."
How is that for a man who Is already
rosing as a democrat and supporting tho
democratic nominee for congrwss In this
territory-? See what some others outside
of our territory tiling of Mr. Callahan's
defeat In the Oklahoma state convention
two years ago, and consequently the de-
feat of our parity in the Oklahoma ter-
ritory Under date of August 21st, 189S:
"Hon. L. F. laverty, Guthrie, O. T :
"My Dear Brother: I am very sorry to
learn that Callahan was turned down
In tho convention. It was ceTtainly a
"J. D. BOTKIN."
But now, after all that was done for
Mr. Callahan by his party In this terri-
tory. and after his shameful betrayal
of the came, to see him now taking the
field for the democratic nominee and cen-
suring and viUlfylng those who did not
se«- fit to support him. It is past all com-
prehension of true loyal populists, and I
apprehend that it will meet with Its se-
vere und deserved rebuke at the polls
of the 8th of next month.
But now, I must hasten to another
point. As I understand, Mr Callahan
Is not satisfied with his turning traitor
to his own party but Is trying to bolster
up the cause of dirty and rotten democ-
racy by saydng that Flynn and republi-
cans defeated the free homes bill in con-
gress in his administration.
In refutation of this, I wish to place
against that his statement In a letter to
under date of February 28th, 1S98, where
he writes me saying:
"Dear Brother Laverty: I had every
democrat in line, until recently some of
them have gone back on us. and I am
unable to learn why. hut I will give you
my candid opinion. The democrats of out
territory, as you know, have all along
said if 1 got the free homes bill through,
I would be returned, If 1 did not, they
would have the nomination. Hence, of
course the democrats would llko to be
able to organize the next congress with-
out the aid of populist, and in order
to be able to succeed, they want as mnny
democrats Instead of populists as they
can get. and I am fully satisfied that
tho democrats of the territory have been
writing to some parties here on that
line. Just how I know, would require
to much time and space to explain. Will
make that clear later. Hence, you se*
the selfishness of supposed friends Is
doing us irreparable injury.
"J Y CALLAHAN."
Take this In connec.t.lon with Senator
Jones' statement that democrats had
been writing to him from this territory.
There is farther light on the question
of their attempt to defeat Mr. Callahan
by fraud and deception. Before leaving
this last letter referred to, 1 wish to say
that in regard to break the force of this
through expose of democratic disloyalty
to the free homes bill, the opposition
members and speakers including Mr. Cal-
lahan. I am told have tried to make the
Impression that those are garbled reports
at-d extracts of letters, and that Mr.
Callahan said to me In one of his letters
that it was Mr. Flynn and the republican
who defeated tin- free homes bill, but I
want to say, her.* and now, that In this
letter Jnwt pass.-d. under darte of Febru-
ary 28, 1898, that Mr. Flynn's name was
not used In said letter by Mr Callahan
from beginning to end; and. farther, sup-
i., ;...r 1„. had said that Mr. Flynn as-
sisted in defeating the free homes bill,
iwhle hhe did not say in his letter, what
tearing would that have on the case?
Mr Callahan is hertf* talking about the
treachery and disloyalty <>f the demo-
crats .to said mci.-'ire and suc.h a childish
and s'll.v subterfuge to break the force
of the ex, . s.., reminds mo of the man
who would att-.-mpt to prove that he A.d
not steal the horse, because ho did not
atoal tw«. horse*.
Then, supposing for the sago of argu-
ment, -that Mr, Flynn and the republi-
cans were Indifferent as to whether Mr.
Callahan succeeded or not In getting free
■homes there mlgnt be some excuse and
palliating clrcumstanccs for such neglect.
Mr. Callahan and the whole of Oklahoma
territory had a right to expect of them
above all others, that populists ami dem-
ocrats would Im> true to the measure un-
der Mr. Callahan's administration. You
will observe later In writing to me. un-
der date of March 11th, 1VJ8, Mr. Calla-
han writing me, saydng:
"' Dear Brother Laverty: Of course
vou have see the fa to of the free
homes bill, long ere this reaches you.
Twenty-live democrats and one i opullst,
Howard, of Alabama, voted against it
Had they all stayed by us. we could have
carried tho measure by a big majority.
"J. Y. CALLAHAN
I think It Is perhaps true, a.-, irdlng to
tho best of my recollection, that Mi Cal-
lahan did. In some other letter or let-
ters Insinuate to mo that he was appre-
hensive that Mr. Flynn and other repub
llcans were not lovuj to free homes bill
under his administration. At least, at one
time he wrote me that Mr. Flynn had
telegraphed to Mr. Grimes to c me on at
once. Said he thought they were ap-
prehensive that he was going to suiv%- d
In getting the free homes and that Flynn
wanted them to be cn the ground t
share the credit of securing free homes.
But why does he desire to prove by li t-
ters to me thst Flynn helped to def•••it
free homes? Is that all ho can do for
proof that Flynn lielptd to defeat fret-
homes? Is that all he can do for proof
of Flynn's dlslojulty, If he thinks ho
was disloyal? It seems to me If he de-
sired to Implicate Mr. Flynn as Indicated
by such a serious charge, that ho surely
would depend upon better evidence than
to prove It simply by old letters ho had
written two years or more hkv
If it was true that Mr. Flynn did op-
pose the passage of the free homes bill,
then what was Mr. Callahan doing all
that time, there on the ground that h
did not secure evidence sufficient to con-
vict him under such a charge? The very
•weakness of the argument would make
the charge fall of its own weight.
I don't care to say more now. and
thereby tax your patience touching this
matter. I think In the minds ef ail can-
did and reasonable people In this audi-
ence and all such in the territory, wbn
know the facts, they are s itisfied that
the people's party In this territory has
been basely betrayed by Mr. Callahan,
ono of the greatest beneficiaries of that
party 4n the territory, ami now he Is
affiliating with the very party that he
himself has condemned for Is treachery
In the very strongest terms, and that
is why we, who are true populists anil
have, from start to finish, been loyal
to the party, and Its principles, desire
yet to rebuke the treachery of the demo-
cratic party and of our betrayers in the
populist party, by this year casting their
votes whero they will render them, re-
buke tho most lasting and positive, and
consequently beneficial in Its results.
The idea of Mr. Callahan talking about
my being disloyal to the populist party.
I have never f*>ld the populist party out
to the democratic party, and further. Mr.
Callahan Is the very man. wh.Cnt Ok-
lahoma City on the eve of his 1 ivlng
the convention above referred to nnd
leaving me alone there In that terrible
battle, he. said to me:
"Mr. Laverty, if l w-re in your place,
if Keaton should secure the nomination,
of this Joint convention. 1 would decline
the re-election as chairman of the ter-
ritorial populist committee. It Mr. K.-a-
ton Is nominated, be is sure to be de-
feated, and you will be largely held re-
sponsible for his defeat If you remain
chairman of the territorial commit!-•
So that now, after the f.vilure of the
democrats to keep their pledge by which
they decoyed anil and dr w ..-ir
convention into that Joint convention,
resulting In the nomination of Mr. Ken-
ton, why does he persist in calling me
a traitor to Mr. Keaton. when ho himself
declared that Mr. Keaton could not be
With this I leave this question, let lng
sad and sorry that Mr. Callahan, under
his own misrepresentations and disloy-
alty to our party In the territory he, h;ni-
self has brought upon himself tin dis-
honor of being traitor to * I• pi-pulbts

still doubting nnd ques-
tioning people In oklahoma, although
they have dally read of the accomp-
lishments of Flynn in congress for

the time worn query: "What has
Flynn really done?"
This same class of pessimists may
also be found asking the same In-
formation about the Illustrious Wash-

who really imagine that accomplish-
ments amount to nothing; that con-
ditions are the workings of destinl-
and that energy and ability are mere
insignificant fat-tors in events. Their
own indolence and density are atteh-
ed to everything within their vision
and tus it Is that In the face of one
of the most eventful oareers of con-
congressmen struggling ignoramus, s
ask this question about Flynn.

resented the territory In the national
house of representatives and during
that time has introduced and pass-
ed sixty-nine measures and there ars

gress thirteen Measure?, a portion of
which have been favorably recom-
mended niul passed one branch of
congress and which are now on the
calander to be brought up for con-
sideration during the next session.
