A FORGIVING PARENT AND A
Years ago, before the foundation of
English language, the wise men of
the- day the prophets and the chos
en of God wrote the story of the
foundation of the world of the crea
tion of L'nlverse and of the ruling
Spirit who held the lives of all His
creatures in the hollow of His hand
Outside a chronicling of the histori
cal events the wars and rumors of
wars, the stories of the rise of na
lions and the fail of empires, the his
tory of the wanderings of the chosen
children of God through tile wilds of
the wilderness, the tales of the
grandeurs of conquests and recitals
of the passing of thousands to death
in numberless defeats. We are told
on page succeeding page that the
God who created the world and the
contents thereof, who created man
and the children of men, who made'
the sun to shine by day and the moon
and the stars to shed their radianco
- by night, was a just God a kind and
forgiving Father who would rather
see the ninety and nine guilty ones
go uuwhipped of justice than to suf
fer one innocent being to be punish
ed. iWe are tedd, beyond the historic
lironicles, that the Lord God who
created the world and tho children
who people! the world, so loved the
children whom lie had created In Ills
own image that he gave His only be
gotten Son that they might be saved.
We are told in this "Good Hook' that
the Lord God tempers the wind to
the shorn lamb and that only the
"lilty shall In; the ones to whom tlio
eternity of hell shall be meted. We
are told that even at the last hour
forgiveness shall be given the erring
members of the human family and
that though our "sins be as scarlet'
they will be washed whiter than snow
We are told in these "Inspired Wri
tings" that the dying thief gazed up
on the face of the dying Master and
believed and believing was saved. Wo
are also told that the meek and Gen
tle Savior loved the little ones and
n,id : "Suffer I hem to come unto
me, for of such Is the Kingdom ot
lleacn." We are told that when tho
I,rtd God punished He punished only
those who had disobeyed His man
dates while the innocent ones were
hoverc.l under His parental and pro
tecting care. IWe arc told that over
il.e turbulent waters of tho rushing
rher of death there will be found
the Eternal City, with houses whose
walls are of alabaster. We are told
Hiat in this beautiful City of Life the
countless millions who have gone be.
fore await tho coming of the "loved
ones left behind," and that when our
own time comes to pay the debt
which all owe to mortality we will
meet beneath the trees on that ever
green shore and rejoice In the light
of the love of those whom we loved
This is whnt the Hible has told the
sainted mothers of men and this )
w hat those mothers taught their child
ren. Thii is the kind of a God whom
the Christian mothers of the world
worshipped In life, whom they died
avj-.ng the loving, forglvi:!;,' Par- nt
the gentle and kind Father, the Just
and upright Judge who noted even
the sparrow's fall the God who Bits
on the throne of everlasting Life and
whispers Into the deafening car of
the dying mortal: "I will lead jour
feet In green pastures."
This Is the God whom the loved
ones already members of the celes
tial band believed In the God who
naH: "Faith, Hope and Charity, but
the greatest of these Is Charity'" and
who, in saying these words, said to
each of the millions of the children
of men. "Befriend the friendless and
uplift the fallen."
This is the God whom the Christ
Inn loves and whom every man, ac
cording to the 1'ght given him, wor
ships, believes in and will see when
the curtains of death part to admit
the soul of the life-weary mortal Into
the joys of his reward.

Thj wspapers of the country are
having a great deal to say about a

Will Geers, in the Tishomingo Cap-Ital-Demoerat
says: "There are a

town ain't as good as it was five
years ago.' Well, why In the name
of good government don't he hike?
God knows we don't want him here,
and the chances are he would not do
half so well elsewhere. But he will
stick. Such people always do. They
are blood suckers of the very worst
type and the Capital-Democrat would
be glad to chronicle their death
but no such luck. If you can't 'pull'
for God's" sake don't 'knock.' Crawl
in your shell and shut up."

MOTIONS TO QUASH SAME AS
AGAINST LESLIE G. NIBLACK
AND HENRY DERWIN.
Motions to set aside unS quash the
indictments returned by the Oklaho
ma county grand jury against I-es-lie
G. Niblack, president and editor
of the Guthrie Leader, and Henry E.
Derwin, superintendent of the Guth
rie Leader, were filed in district
court in the presence of Judge G. W.
Clark Saturday afternoon. Twenty
two reasons for attacking the valid
ity of the grand jury are named in
the motions. Accompanied witn
each motion is an application for an
order to examine an application for
an order to examine witness
es to prove the contentions set fortn
by the defendants. Attorneys Me
Adams and Haskell, who represent
Niblack and Derwin are arranging t
institute similar action in connection
with .. the grand jury indictment
against State Insurance Commission
er Perry A. Ballard, in which he is
charged with bribery.
It is alleged that the grand jury
was not summoned according to law,
one reason being that the board of
jury commissioners did not act nt
the proper time. The motion sets
forth that the jury commissioners
were appointed more than fifteen
days after the first Monday in Jan
uary 191::, the actual date having
been January 27.
it is alleged that District Judge W.
R. Taylor selected the jury commis
sioners, and that the order to call
a grand jury was authorized by Dis
trict Judges Taylor, Clark nnd Car
ney, but that the county judge was
not consulted. It is contended that
tln jury commission was selected in
tho office of T. M. Vpshaw in the
State National bank building, where
as the jury commissioners are re
quired by law to meet for this pur
pose in the office of the county clerk.
The law also sets forth that the
jury list must be selected from the
names of 400 taxpayers of the county
representing each township and vot
ins precinct in the county. It is al
leged that instead of doing this, the
jury commissioners drew their
names for the list from the city di
rectory, m part, while one man is
said to have lived in Logan county,
Various other reasons of a more or
less similar nature, all technical in
their meaning, are named in the mo
The motions were delivered in
open court before Judge Clark, in
the presence of the defendants nnd

feat the motions to quash on the
ground that while the precise letter
of the law was not carried out in
drawing the jury, that its substantial
provisions were followed out. The
office of the county attorney enter

dissolved by virtue of these motions,

City of Mexico, Marc 30. The
Mexican government has made a for
mal protest to the American govern
ment against tho shipping of arms
nnd ammunition from tho United
States to the rebels and Jias request
ed that greater vigilance be exercised
in guarding the frontier. Mexican of
ficials understand that numerous as
signments of war material, including
many machine guns, have been sent
across the border, in some cases even
at the regular price of entry, and are
now in the hands ot the rebels.
It is pointed out by the same of
ficials that since the rebels control
a large part of the frontier, this, coun
try is dependent absolutely, for the
time being, on the United States to
prevent the rebels from obtaining
supplies. That the rebels are secur
ing quantities of ammunition appears
to be a fact.
No notable improvement in the
revolutionary situation is apparent.
The greater successes in recent days
are credited to the rebels, although
severe punishment in minor engage
ments has been inflicted on the ad
herents of Veaustiano Carranza near
Residents of the capitol are ner
vous because of continued rumors of
friction between Huerta and Gen. Fe
lix Diaz and of plots and intrigues,
even to the fixing of dates when a
new battle may be expected on the
streets or the assassination of one
or the other of the principals.
On Saturday so keen was the ex
citement that the president summon
ed newspaper men to the palace af
ter midnight to issue a formal state
ment, saying he and Felix Diaz were
still friends and working in harmony,
and that there was no truth in the
street gossip. Huerta's statement
was reiterated by Diaz.
