H. way, went to Ford Tuesday morning in an automobile to inspect some lumber that is to be used in a connty bridge. They were accompanied by H. Juneau. Ex-Congressman Botkin Talks to the Voters The Democratic meeting held at the court house last Tuesday evening was well attended.

Ex-Congressman J. D. Botkin made the ablest speech delivered in this city since the opening of the campaign. He showed that the Republican party is sible for two panics. The first lasting from 1873 to 1878, and the present one which began last year, is still in some degree with us and likely to continue during this fall and winter.

The tariff question was handled with great ability and the republican teaching of good times having been brought about by a high protective tariff, was smashed to smithereens. The farmer, by the help of almighty God, was given the credit of raising good crops, and by the sale of wheat, corn, cattle, mules, and horses, with the discovery of much gold in Klondike, to have made money plenty, and naturally times were good until the late panic was thrust upon us by republican misrule when all of a sudden banks were closed and factories shut down and hundreds of thousands thrown out of employment, with siarvation stalking abroad in all the large cities of our land. The principles of the Republican and Democratic parties were fully discussed. And it was well shown that republican teaching leads for the benefit of the capitalist. and that of the democratic giving the fair deal and opportunity to all.

If elected Governor Botkin states he will reccomend to the legislature all the advanced ideas of reform stated in the Democratic platform and the initiative and referendum as to new laws, as now incorporated in the laws of Oklahoma and a number of the newer states. It will be a big undertaking for any of the ablest republican speakers to refute any of the arguments presented at this meeting by the speaker. Mr. Hale, candidate for congressman on the democratic ticket was present and made a few remarks, but was excused from going into the larger questions of the campaign on condition that he will address the people on Thursday evening in the Court house. On last Tuesday evening while candidate-for-Governor Botkin was delivering one of the greatest speeches of the campaign, at the Court house, the Republican Smokers were holding a meeting in their hall over Stubbs Grocery store.

The principal speaker of this motly crew we have learned was the talented and witty H. L. Carey of the Novelty Works. From what we heard he waded after the Ex-Congressman and brother churchman with all tne wit and sarcasm of a true knight of the Green isle. We do not think such doings altogether fair to Botkin, since if they had come up to the Court house he could have been met face to face.

to become the pastor of the church. Time to Call a Halt Supreme Justice David J. Brewer recently asked the chairman of the appropriation committee in the house of congress why it was that this nation had not paid off any of its billion dollar debt in the last ten years. He received this I reply: "In the last ten years the total appropriations for the army were eight hundred, ninteen million dollars. Of course.

I omit giving anything but round figures. Tnis is exclusive of pensions. For the prior ten years the appropriations were ouly two hundred forty five million During the last ten years the appropriations for the navy were eight hundred and ninty-seven million dollars, the ten years prior two hundred and sixty-two million dollars. or an excess in the appropriations for the army and navy during last ten years over the prior ten years of one billion, one hundred and ninteen million dollars. That is why we have not pail the national debt." The bugbear of war, and the war spirit and the army and navy aristocracy are yearly plunging this nation.
