talntngiy on the rolitlral Mltaa
The Bon. Samuel Sullivan Cox, who is
better known as "Sunset" Cox, is making
a lecture tour throughout the country.
He stopped at Indianapolis the other
night, and the Sentinel of that city says
of the distinguished gentleman:
No American is better known at home
and abroad than Mr. Cox. Although a
trained politician, be is a broad-gauged
statesman. He is an active member of
Tammany hall, and takes his place in the
front rank of literature. In the national
house of representatives no member has
ever been able to cope with m in witti
cism. No living man h- served so many
terms in congress as Mr. Cox. However,
tbey are not consecutive, and Pig-iron
Kelley is the "father of the house," on
account 4 Being the oldest "consecutive
rhirty years atro Sunset Cox was sent
to congress from Ohio, representing the
Columbus district for eight tears. The
republicans gerrymandered him out of
office and he moved out. He did not go
west and prow up with the country, but
went to New York and was sent to con
gress as soon as he had gained a residence
there. He has been in congress ever
since, with the exception of the first ses
sion of the Forty-ninth congress, during
which time he was serving Cleveland's
administration as minister to Turkey.
He has been elected to ten congresses
from the city of New York, but be has
never been allowed to vote for himself
be never lived in the district he repre
sents. "Yes, I am on a lecturing tour," said
he to a Sentinel reporter. "I am going
as far west as Montaua. Next Saturday
I will lecture in Kansas City. The sub
ject of my lecture is "The Poetry of
Mechanism or the Tenth Muse.'" Mr.
Cox was tired and retired early, but not
before chatting freely upon the topics of
"It is too early to speak of Harrison's
administration," said be. "So far be has
made Bome good political moves. He has
succeeded in disposing of rivals' for the
nomination in 1899 with one exception.
Allison, of Iowa, wouldn't eo in the cab
inet nor could he be induced to go
abroad. Harrison is undoubtedly work
ing for a second term. Like Cleveland,
He may receive the nomination by accla
raation and sustain a defeat at the polls.
I believe that no more presidents will be
reelected. The element in our voting

creacng as population increases. Par
ties will oon find out that to renominate
a president Is to court defeat, and the
'one-term rule will be adhered to

dents we have had. His was an honest
administration, without scandals. No

Some of these men sold the ir votes, some

"If Gen. Harrison rans in 1893 he will
find that cross road politicians will not
be so active as they were last year. Last
year they were working for office; next
time tbey will remain inactive because
tbey did not get them. Gen. Harrison
may secure a unanimous indorsement at
the next convention by taking care of
the big politicians, but if every leading
republican of Indiana was given a foreign
mission it would not satisfy the men who
ponea ine warns ana aia ine 'mission
ary' work in the last camgaign. The
most active men in the campaign are
those who are incited by the hope of re
ward." "Then you think there is hope for the
democratic party, even with the admis
sion of new states."
"Why, certainly. The new states will
not make such a big difference after all.
The two Dakotas and Washington will
fcwe the republicans ten more electoral
votes. Montana will be a democratic
state with three electoral votes. The
state of Rhode Island can be counted for
the democratic candidate with four votes.
The newly enfranchised voters gave the
democratic party last week 3.000 plu
rality. Of course the next enumeration
will increase the electoral vote of certain
western republican states, but it will also
decrease the eleetoral vote of eastern re
publican states. Indiana, New York
and New Jersey will surely hold their
own. Texas and other southern states
will gain. The democrats have nothing
to fear from the new states and the

A Carrier Boy's fate.
Drummond Wilson, a son of Rev. and
Mrs. W. G.Wilson, was instantly killed
Monday eve at Muscatine. The body
was found on a flat car near the depot
with the head completely crushed when
the father reached the scene . The par
ticulars of the sorrowful accident are as
follows: The victim was one of the
carrier boys for the Muscatine Journal.
He had made his delivery of papers and
was walking up the railroad track when
a twitch engine come along. Drummond
attempted to step on the front platform
of the locomotive, but he missed his foot
ing and fell upon the track. In a mo
ment the wheels had passed over his
head. The engine was quickly stopped,
and the body was placed on the flat car.
Drummond was about 18 years of age, a
member of the high school, and a manly
and conscientious youDg man, beloved
by all who knew him. He was an active
member of the Young Men's Christian
association, and was always ready to
assist in any church work possible for
him to accomplish.

Gcthrtk, I. Tf April 24. The boomers
are ia possession of Oklahoma, but their joy
is niaJT'by suffering and hardship which
are already upon them. Starvation actually.
stares the people in the face. Suffering be
gan here in dead earnest yesterday. Fifteen
thousand people asked for tbe commonest
necessaries of life and wore unable to obtain
them, even by offering fabulous prices for
them. The absence of water baa caused tbe
most hardships. It was an Intensely hot
day, and this added to the demands of some
thing to quench their thirst The water of
the river has an alkali taste, and rather aug
ments the thirst than satisfies it The
same can be said of the water obtained from
the two wells here. Good drinking water
bas been brought here by a pipe line from the
railroad tank, and so great was the drain oa
this that the railroad company called on the
authorities to keep everybody away from
the tank. Whon tbe trains arrived the tanks
of the engines were tapped until means were
taken to stop it
Water Ten Cent a Cap.
Those wbo had obtained water from tbe
big tank early in the day had filled large bar
rels, and thoy reaped a rich harvest by sell
ing It by the cupful for 10 cents. A little ice
was on hand and it rapidly sold for 10 and 18
cents a pound. This painful scarcity of water
nearly drove the people wild. Food also
brought large prices and many were willing
to pay for it, but could not obtain it A
meal of bacon or ham and eggs, and with
stale bread and a eup of horrible coffee, was
worth $1. Such meals engendered a burn
ing thirst which it was impossible to gratify.
During the night which followed the first
day of Guthrie's existence sleeping accom
modations amounted to niL Thore were only
a few huudred tents and 15,000 people, in
cluding 1(10 women. Most of these had not
encumbered themselves with any superfluous
baggage in the shape of blankets, and tbey
had no other recourse than to lie on the bare
prairie with nothing for protection but the
clothes tbey wore.
Men Who Have Ilaxt Enough.
Discontent and misery are stamped on
every countenance. The whole matter is a
terrible disappointment, and just where it
will all end la not very clear. Yesterday's
trains, while tbey brought iu several thou
sands of people, also took out about 1,000,
wbo have bad enough.
Polities Are Booming, Too.
Candidates for city offices are canvassing
the town for votes. About twenty -five men
are anxious to serve the youug city as its
first mayor. Prominent among these is an
Illinois man, who is well known throughout
that state, Gen. Jasper N. Reece.
The cliok of tbe hammer could be

As early as 2 o'clock yesterday morn
ing homes teadwrs began to assemble at tha
land office, and at S o'clock 400 people were
waiting in line to make filings for claims.
The Brash Was Full of Boomer.
Tbe appointment of tbe noon hour for
opening the territory was a faroe. Tbe
brash and ravines were full of mem when the
time came to settle on the land.
A Tragedy on Cottonwood.
About 6 o'clock Monday evening a pistol
report across the Cottonwood creek west of
the depot, outside of the town site reserve,
attracted attention. In a moment a man on
horseback went west over the hill at break
neck speed. Two deputy United States mar
shals went over, but were told that nothing
bad occurred. A press representative got a
boat and crossed the stream, however, to in
vestigate. In the bushes were collected half
a dozun men. On the ground, and beside a
half-made grave, was stretched all that was
left of a T. Compis.
Tbe Revolver's Work.
A ball from a revolver bad passed entirely
through his breast, coming out of tbe back.
He lived half an hour after being shot,
and was dead when the reporter reached
him. Efforts were made to conceal tbe
body, and only an assurance of tbe strictest
confidence gained the reporter permission to
stay there, and then be did not dare to reveal
bis business. The face was at once recog
nised as a man who bad eaten dinner with
The Murdered Man's Story.
There Compis said be and his partner bad
entered Guthrie on ponies. All the lots were
gone, and tuey swam the Cottonwood and
staked a claim. As they were driving the
last stakes, a follow was discovered in tha
bushes on the bank of the creek. This man
said be had already staked the claim. Compis
and his partner offered to divide. To this
the fallow objected, and warned him he
would shoot before be would di
vide. Compis did not believe this
threat, and as he left the meal tent
he said he should sleep on that claim.
The Perpetrator Gets Away.
Half an hour afterward Compis was shot
by the first claimant as be stood by his pony,
bridls in hand. His murderer got away be
fore Compis' partner could realize what had
been dona He would not give his name,
and the peculiarity of the situation prevented
searching inquiry. The dead man was
about 80 years old, and bad black hair and
eyes. When he left the eating tent he wore
a gray flannel shirt, boots and pants and bad
his ooat strapped to the pony. Compis com
panion took ohorge of the murderer's outfit
of a wagon and two horses. The man will
never return, as beJcnew his shot was fatal.
Be Wouldn't Surrender.
Latib. It is now reported that the man
who killed Compis was overtaken later by a
party in search of him, and, refusing to sur
render, was shot dead. His name is said to
have been C. Y. Land.
Another Fight Beported.
A report from Furcell says that a fight be
tween a lot of boomers and a party of Texan
near the South Canadian ford resulted in the
death of two men and wounding of five.
The Winchester Asserting It Title.
Mr. J. O. Varnum, deputy marshal, who
arrived here yesterday, .says that Martin
Colbert, a wealthy citicen of the Chickasaw
nation, was killed in a quarrel over a claim
by a man named Noland., About fourteen
miles west of Oklahoma City a man was
found dead on a claim. Near the body was a
man of the nam of Martin, who coolly in
formed the deputy that he had killed the man
in self-defease. About three miles west of
Quthrie an invader shot a settler in a dispute
over a claim and seriously wounded him.
How a Mew Town Was Located.
On locating tbe new town of Noble. Mr.
Varnum says, the scenes were the most ex
