reason And one very Important reason rest
with the pfBal pf the country that permits Itself
lo practice fraud upon the public The press,
let i be said In humility, must shoulder a Ire
niendmis responsibility for not only Ihe corrupt
praetlera of politics, but for many other ob
Jecilonsble features of American life.
What we have In mind at the moment, how
ever. Is the manner In which the l-'errls meetitiR
at convention hall Monday evenliiR was handled
hy the piesa. The World w-as represented by a
competent and reliable member of Its staff who
was Inalrurted lo write a story of facta, Ita
eoni em betnR to publish the news an It larfnade
not at 'he personal opinion of ItH editor miithl
wish It to be made.
This writer said that there were "eeveral
hundred people present," An Indefinite lerm
to be sure The Ferris press, however. Ihe es
teemed Itkbihoman helnR Ihe most lonsplcoua
member ami Ihe chief offi-mb r, carried a MOl"J
Bajrlnfl that there wi re "ll,lftfl people present "
Manifestly a typographical error. Hut assuming-
the error to be unintentional and that It
should have trad .1,500. what then?
The World's representative reports, and his
statement Is borne out by the candid testimony
of othcrn present and even partisan to the Krrrle
cause, that there were present less than alio
pei pie all told. It waa not considered a court
eous thing for this paper to rdtow Ihe meeting
as a complete failure by atlemptlnR to Rive the
precise number, so the term "several hundred"
was used. Mr. Kerrls was a Ruest of ihe cltv.
enRagrd In a laudable enterprise and ailing
well within hla right.
Hut the popularity of the two contenders for
the senatorial bonoi In measured by thounamlh
of people by Ihe number of voters that attend
their respective meetlnRS And Ihousanda read
ing Ihe oklahoman story of Ihe affair, made a
lead on Its front paae. must Inevitably arrive
at the conclusion that Mr Ferris was accorded
n ovation at Tulsa. If politics are to be puri
fied the press should make a reasonublr effort
o Inform the people of whi.t happentt and not
BBlnl the lllly.
The World Is moved to say this much con
cerning this matter because of an outraged
feeling, and not because of any partlaanlsm for
Hetuitnr Oore. The charRc It frequently brln
made that The Wm Id la for flore That Is not
true. It holds no partisan brief for either
gentlemen. It hopes for the election of a re
publican candidate and It believe that such
candidate will be elected.
Put It la UaejUOatlOnabty for Oore to the extent
that ho shall have a fair opportunity to he
heard for the cause he represents, lust as It
la for Mr. Kerrle for precisely the same reason.
Senator time la a l ulled Htates ii'nr lie
la a news source by reason of the position he
holds. V'or the preaa of Oklahoma to refuse

ny state, but a positive crime In a state that

It was late afternoon when 1 ar
rived in Chicago. 1 took a cab and
went directly to the hotel from
which Bob had written.
"Mr. Ciarrctt left h"re yenterdsy."
I the derk informed me when I asked
for Bob, and told him who I waa.
