0A8E OF ATTORNEY CELERITY-
"Time, with all It Sjm'wI. move slowly

watch Its flight." JohttMHi.
The Leadek, as a purveyor of good
and sound Democratic doctrine In Ok
lahoma Territory, has no personal
grievences against United Slates Dis
trict Attorney Horaco Speed. Hut
it cries out iu behalf of justice nnd
As a servant of the Republican party
and its villainous schemes, he deserves
tho censure of every fulr-mindcd man,
woman and child who believes in hon
esty or correct moral principles. Mr.
Speed was appointed to bis high office
to serve the people and Justly repre
sent the territory. In this he has sig
nally failed. Hud he made an attempt
at fairness and honesty in his capacity
of attorney, his sins could, in a degree,
be condoned. Hut from tho start he
proved himself a cowardly wire-puller,
and has repeatedly tried to cast odium
on the present administration. He has
prostituted Ins high office for political
ends, and like a snake in the grass,
tieachcrously attacked men who have
befriended him Following the opon
log of the Cherokee outlet, "Tho Fast
Man" imagined he saw a fine chance
for political glory, and with the help
of Flynn, Hurford, Stone and other de
graded politicnl boosters, hutched
charges against tho Perry land olllce
oflicinls. A fake grand jury was used
to follow up tho charges but after
weeks of "investigation" and the
expenditure of thousands of dollars of
good money, the grand jury was dis
charg d with no returns. Only in
ono instanco wore tho charges sus
tained and thoy were In tho caso of
Clerk llnndluu a Republican. Upon
learning Hatullan's politics tho Inves
tigation was dropped like tho prover
oial hot potato and the grand jury dis
charged. Nothing wus proven against
the Democratic otllclaU In tho Perry
land olllee, every Democrat under lire
of Speed's disreputable guns ciine out
of the "b.ittlc" unscathed. Speed
failed In Ills misbegotten purpose, and
tho attorney's remark, "When I get
through with this investigation tluro
wl 1 bo no Democratic 1 arty in Oklu-
homa" was thrust down his throat,
oven after he had eaten his own words.
Speed is now nt Perry endeavoring to
work up another Investigation, but
like the former attempt, it will prove
a fiasco. Speed is a renegade of the

Ills craven spirit permeates his ov
oiy net. For parly's sake he would
sacrifice his God. Months ago "The
Fast Muu" knelt before high olllcials
of this administration and begged and
whined to be retained in ofijeu. Now
his placid face wears a grin, but it Is a
sardonic affair. Speed well knows ho
Is not long for this administration, and
by villainous nod trumped up charges
endeavors to bring into disrepute
Democratic olllcials. Hut like a full
vampire, he has dropped from his
would-be victim his every charge has
failed to stick, and he is now ready to
retire with a stain on his soul, dis
graced in the eyes of his friends and

A POLITICAL VAMPIRE.
A medioorc sheet calleil the Sentinel,

Wharton, who, under the guise of bo
ing a Democrat, managed to be elected
elork of I'erry, lifts its weak voice and
attempt to attack Register Malooe, of
tiie I'erry laud otllce and the adminis
tration. Wharton is a political pol
troon of the ilrst water, and has been
a canillnatc for every oflice under the
administration from secretary of the
territory to dog-killer at Chandler, lly
unergetle whining he managed to be
nominated clerk of I'orry, and, being
on the Democratic ticket, was naiui

Many of the old soldiers of the

lowing compliment to Kugene Fluid of

fatal Illness of the latter. Mr. Iield

KEEP UP THE DEPARTMENT.
A first-class, fire department Is a
necessary adjunct to a first-class city,
and tho council should aim to keep the
local department up to the standard.
Not only will the necessary protection
be afforded against serious coutlugr.i
tlons but tho rate of lire insurance
must of uci'cssity drop. Let the lire
horses stay by all means.
WHAT IT MEANS.
Ad Vulorcm is a Latin term
means "accordinif to tltc value,"
that'b how tariff should bo imposed on
imported (foods "according to the
value." That's the Democratic lden.
It would hardly be fulr to indiscrimin
ately tax iron and diamonds by the
pound, would It? Well hardly.
