OKLAHOMA DEMOCRACY VINDI
CATED. Tho attitudo of the domocratio
senators in congress seems to
have been nothing unreaponnhlo
in tho matter of a statohood com
promise. In fact, with so small a
difference between tho two par
ties, it is strango that a compro
mise could not bo offeoted.
As has boon reported, and' ap
peared in tho news columns of the
Oklahoman yestorday, tho demo
cratic proposition yv.s exactly
like that of tho repuh'n'uins, ex
cept in one particular. That was
tho demooats asked that Arizona
bo permitted to voto for soparato
statehood, agregating itsolf from
Now Mexico, after tho area now
comprising it should havo attain
eda population of 200,000. Tho
republicans proposed that tho
population should bo 300,000
when that event might tako
place. Both parties agreed that
in tho meantime and for the
present the two territories of Ari
zona and New Mexico should bo
united. The solo and only dif
ference was what might bo tho
population when they should
And this was the only point of
difference all along the line of
statehood in tho later efforts to
As to Oklahoma and Indian
Territory both parties were agreed
that they should be United in
statehood in 1000, threo years
hence, and that no .public build
ings or constitutional convention
should bo had until such union
should tako placo. That was ex
actly the position of the demo
cratio" party "in Oklahoma during
and 3ince, as well as preceeding
tho last campaign. Tho demo
crats of Oklahoma can well con
gratulate themselves at this time
that they have been endorsed not
only by tho solid membership of
the democratic party in tho son
ate, but by tho solid republican
membership of that body aa well
in their position for single, im
mediate and equal statohood for
Oklahoma and Indian Territory.
Tho old proverb is thus verified
that "ho laughs beat who laughs
It was derisively said during the
campaign that the democrats of
Oklahoma wero opposed to tho
position of the democrats in tho
senate, because the latter wore
supporting the omnibus bill at
that timo. It was explained by
the Oklahoman that this claim of
difforenco was not true that tho
democrats in tho senate wero in
tho minority and not responsible
for the bill of the majority party
that had passed tho house, and
that when it camo to an issue of
Oklahoma considered separately,
aa if should have been instead of
being hitohed up with tho two
other territories, the democrats
senators wero in favor of single
statehood for our people, But
that was not to suit tho republi
cans in Oklahoma, who were op
posed to their own party, and
they continued to misrepresent
tho position of democrats in this
territory on the theory, perhaps,
that misery loves company.
Tho result of it all has been
that the democrat party in Okla
homa has como out exactly with
the democratic party in tho sen-
ato, in demanding single state
hood for Oklahoma and Indian
Territory. On tho contrary,
please locate the republican party
in Oklahoma with roference' to
tho republican party in the Ben
ate. Oklahoman .
Court House and Jail.
Tho board of County Commis
sioners! has had under consider
ation thu proposition of Messrs.
Holland and Squiros, of Topekn,
Kas., for the erection of a county
court liouso and jail at this placo.
Tho plans and specifications
wero similar to thoso of tho court
houso at Boloit, Kas., tho build
ings to be of brick or stono, as
tho board may hereaftor deter
mine. They wero also to havo goneral
supervision of tho work, inspect
ing materials, making of esti
mates, and all other work of ar
chitects in tho supervision of
buildings. Tho board agreed to
pay tlio sum of 5 per cent of tho
cost of said buildings, and in case
said plans and specifications nro
not accoptod by tho Sooretary of
tho Interior, no charges aro to bo
mado for such services.
A Ludlclous Mistake.
In yesterday's Oklahoman the
big headlines of tho two leading
front page articles were exchan
ged, tho political article, rolativo
fco tho candidacy for tho mayoralty
of two prominent Oklahoma City
mon being headed by a statement
of tho arrest of "Big Ann", tho
keeper of a brothel, and a scath
ing denunciation of tho woman
and her resort, with a detailed
account of her iniquities, was
headed by tho names of tho
aforesaid prominent politicians.
Wo wonder if tho editor hadn't a
pleasant half hour when ho found
it out, and wo also wonder how
many ten conters it took to square
things with tho candidates? Veri
