th: American States. Little formality attended the ceremony
which meant so much to the people of the two territories. In

rooms at the Royal hotel at 0:20 this morning announcing that President
Roosevelt signed the statehood proclamation admitting Oklahoma to the Union
at 10:10 (eastern time) this morning. The word spread like wildfire, and it
was but a few moments before pandemonium reigned supreme. Every bell in
the city rang out the glad tidings, scores of factory whistles screamed piercing
blasts of overflowing joy, and the hotel lobbies were filled to overflowing by
cheering men. Guns were fired, gianferackers exploded and the air was rent
with the general gladness.

Leslie G. Niblack, qditor of the Guthrie Leader, then administered the oath

tention until the very close.
J. D. Burke, chairman of the board of county commissioners of Logan county

The Old and the New.
A change has taken place at the
Court House. Those who Lave bcrved
the county the past three yeairi have
stepped down and out and the officers-
elect have stepped in to direct the des.
tinies of this commonwealth for the
same length of time.
In the out-going officers Beaver coun
ty loses many pains taking officials and
those who have devoted their best en
ergies to the benefit of the county.
On the other hand, those who have
stepped into the harness are just as
anxious to serve the whole people with
out fear or favor.
The majority of the incoming officers
are of the Democratic persuasion but
politics is not the order of thedny now.
Election is passed, politics must take a
back seat and each ollicer takes his oatli
of office to serve tho people without
prejudice or partiulity. Wo have eve
ry reason to believe each officer will
fu'fill tiiat obligation and give us n
good clean administration With that
belief in mind und being personally ac
quainted witli the present regime of
ollicers wo extend greetings to them
and recommend them to our readers as
honorable and upright mid worthy of
your every confidence.

ure of a personal acquaintance. Wo

gentleman and one who, though even u
Democrat, will give Beaver county "a
squaro deal." Fact is, his polities is
all that Is wrong. He is fully uware of
the needs and possibilities of the coun
ty and there is no doubt but that his
administration will be a good one.
