VINITA DAILY CHIEFTAIN.
VOL XIV. NO. 155. VINITA, OKLAHOMA, MONDAY, OCTOBER 28. 1912. FIVE CENTS PER COP'V GOL BRYAN WILL HAVE TWO STRENUOUS DAYS The state campaign committee lias completed plans for a warm finish for the campaign in this state. The first big event of the week will be the tour of Mr. Bryan, beginning at Vlnita to morrow, and concluding at Medford on Wednesday evening. Reports l.'oni the places at which Mr. Bryan's spe clnl will stop indicate the greatest en thusiasm over his coming. At every place there will be big crowds. At many places special trains will be run to bring in crowds from a large sur rounding territory. Mr. Bryan is to be given two very trenuous days, and he will speak to a large proportion of the people of Oklahoma. The grand rally in Oklahoma City Tuesday night will be probably the biggest single meeting of the campaign and it is expected that great crowds will come from all over the state, particularly from those portions not touched by the Bryan special. Senator Newell of the speaker's bureau will take advantage of the crowd that will be gathered at all of the points along the way, to have speakers on hand to speak while tht-y are 'waiting for Mr. Bryan and a'.te.r he has gone, so that the greatest ad vantage may be gained from tin Bryan trip. Senator Gore will enter the cam paign in Oklahoma Monday speaking in the morning at Okfuskee, in the afternoon at Sapulpa, and at night at Tulsa, leaving Tulsa to meet ihe Bryan special at Vinita and accom panying Mr. Bryan throughout the tour of the state. The senator will put in all the' remainder of the time on the stump in Oklahoma until elec tion day. The Wilson rally on Saturday un der the auspices of the Women's Na tional Wilson-Marshall organization will be almost as big a thing as the Bryan tour. Mrs, Frank B. Luca3 who is in charge of the organisation for this rally throughout the state has received' information from all over the state indicating that the day is going to be generally observed. The men as well as the women are taking great interest in the affair. There is a demand for speakers throughout the state for Saturday and the best talent the democratic patty in Oklahoma affords will be on the stump that day. Hundreds of speeches will be made in the cause of democ racy and it is expected that great enthusiasm will be aroused for the final wind-up of the campaign. The light will not cease until the polls have closed. In all of the larger towns on Monday night prior to the election there will be democratic rallies with all of the best speakers In the state preaching democratic doctrine. The campaign committee feels confident that the result will be entirely satisfactory, if the full demo cratic vote is gotten out and after availing itself of every possible means for arousing the interest of the voteis before the polls open every possible provision will be made for getting Ihe vote out on election day. BASIL GAUNTLETT. The Power to Understand. It is with rather a feeling of selfish ness that one views a small but repre sentative audience, who have assembl ed to hear an initial performance by real genius. It is as one who is chosen to comprehend hidden beauties of meaning that are beyond the ken of the ordinary mortal whose soul has tailed to respond and expand sufficient ly to value at its true worth the mes sage brought by him, who although not one of us, has sought to give a taste of the unattainable to the laymen and Medium Priced Men, Women, Children SOLID BUT WITHIN MILFORD - BERGER laborers in the vineyard of classic love. Basil Oauiitlett has played in Vinita, and to those whose good fortune it was to hear him, his name will never be forgotten. He is young, and in the springtime of a career which is to be marvelous. Musical critics of high standing havf pronounced in bis interpretations and technical renditions of the works of the great masters from which his se lections are taken to form programs rivaling in excellence those of our very greatest recognized pianists. One must indeed wonder at his extensive knowledge of these works to arrange a program of selections seldom played by other artists and each one so dif ferent in style that varied emotions is the result; joy and sorrow chasing each other to and fro in our hearts as our ears listen and minds respond to the music made by his flying fingers. ilis memory is also wonderful, and there seems to be no limit to the rep ertoire he is able to have ready at a moments notice. To understand! Is It so difficult after all? Even one untutored, it seems could keep in mind the delicate yet forceful theme by Handel with one variation after another from the pen of Brahms. They follow each other with 1 lightning like rapidity, and were so beautifully played that each was in itself a finished gem of excellence. The Sonata in B minor by Chopin gave the artist a splendid opportunity to display his wonderful versatility in technique and clearness of melody; the playing of octaves, and the delicate scale work which occurred in the finale. In "Harmonies of Night" who could not hear at first the sweet evening song before good nights had been said; afterwards, there seemed to be a still ness, broken only by the twitter of a night bird or rustle of leaves from the blowing of gentle breezes. Then, the , wind changed, and suddenly became (tiff and fierce; the patter of the rain I drops is heard on the roof, grows ' louder, and at last the storm breaks furiously. You can hear the loud peals 1 of thunder and almost see the flashes of lightning as the Earl King rages in the dead of night. But soon it passes; the thunder ceases its roaring , the wind dies away with a mournful sigh, and the rain growing less is heard fainter and fainter ceases entirely, and all is still. It Is only a great artist who can speak so to the soul. Only one with the power to take the works of an other and thus interpret, who can bring out the meaning and make It clear. It is In the Liszt Ballade (No. t), that we hear the sweet song like mel- lody above the rush and roar and dash of harmony that comprises the com plex working of the theme, which only a finished pianist could handle even al all Mr. Gauntlett played other selections equally as beautiful as these, ending with "The Waves" by Moskowski; an exquisite composition played in so masterly a style that the waves of ocean seemed around about us, and our little boat was dancing to their song. We complain of our limitations and I this must ever be; but in the hearts of many there is a spirit of combative ness, ever paramount which causes .them to cleave ever to the things they I think they love, rather than branch out at times and give new pleasures a 'trial. When the curtain raises on the tfred j painted faces of a third rate opera j chorus, or the stage setting for an ordinary drama with poor actors and scant scenery, the lover of the "show" is thrilled with a delight all his own as the audience were thrilled last night at the dainty setting for the evening's entertainment, and yet, these too have in days gone by felt the same emotion at the raising of the curtain on the chorus of the cheap show; only they have grown out of It, and are more or less blaze; enduring rather than en joying many a performance they at tend. Just as a reader of much stale fiction finds a day that the human mind craves something new, and seeks SHOES THE REACH OF ALL SHOE COMPANY JUDGE SAM PARKS Popular candidate for reelection to the office of county judge. Mr. Parks has made good and will be elected by a large majority. DR. BULGIN'S GREAT REVIVAL IS NOW IN Ik Gunter Building Crowded To The Doors Sunday Night. The revival meetings of the union of churches in Vinita, conducted by Reverends Bulgiu and Rose opened last night. The religious spirit of the people of Vinita was not found want ing from the Immense audience which gathered to hear the first address of this really great man. No other at traction could bring so many people together in one place, at one time, and this seems conclusive evidence that religious fervor is increasing In our midst. One might wish, from witnessing a scene like last night, that all church services might be revivals, Or that revivals were a thing of the past, and that Christ's love be ever so demon strated and our hearts thrilled by such a service. Churches in union; what a thought! Can one help wishing that a day may come when creed will be done away with as it was last night, and the hope of eternal life be open to all no matter by what road each might travel to gain it? A choir of more than two hundred voices resrwnded willingly to the able leadership of Rev. Rose, who almost danced in his joy of directing, and as each successive attempt brought forth greater effort and more beautiful tone production his pleasure was unbounded and his own voice joined often in the song of praise to a great and loving God. For one-half hour he labored just with the choir, then with the congre gation, until even the little children sang alone, their sweet childish voices carrying perfectly to the back of the house, and then all dapped their hands and smiled, for it is sweet to hear a little child sing songs of praise. And oh, so many little children there ', were who had come out to listen and ! enjoy; throughout the service there the store-houses of knowledge for 'other themes. The fiction has palled. It is only in the constant newness of something with which we are perfectly .satisfied, that the brain fails to ex ' pand and grow. To understand the best in music, literature and art and the problem plays that are today be ing presented for our inspection and contemplation, is to allow a greater outlet to emotion and not be ashamed 'of a tear perhaps, or outward show"1 of feeling which might be remarked by one more narrow. The things we con sider often-Umes "beyond us" can be bet'r understood if we will only try, and a higher, better knowlc' e of the works of men and women i"i an age j beyond us may be acqu!"d, and a part at least of the ple-sure such knowledge brings may be ours to realize. ISOBEL McCARMIPK. FULL SWING was not one tired little head, and not one eye closed in slumber. They were interested all the way through and received much instruction from Rev. Bulgin's address. There is something wonderful about a truly great man greeting a great audience who have come to hear some thing unusual something different, and do not wish to bo disappointed. They have heard of him, read of him, but now the time has come when they may judge of his ability and his power. These people were not disappointed; no, not from the very opening to tne close. The reading of the nineteenth Pslam and its explanation was simple and comprehensive: "All nature sings of the creation of God," and yet nature is not God. The very reading of the Pslam by Dr. Bulgin made the words clear, and the musical rythm more rythmical and sweeter still. The chosen subject for this address was "Why I believe the bible to be the inspired word of God" and his text from second Samuel, twenty-third chapter and 10th verse. "And his, hand clave unto the sword." Then, after two solos, one by Mrs Rose with a sweet soprano voice and a sweeter face who carries in her very bearing the love of humanity in her heart, and one by Mr. Rose, our "Man of the Hour," began to speak. He tfild us of the wonderful battle where the Phillistines were driven back again and again by the army of Israel and finally routed; but the leader wounded ami dying clave to the swoid. Ilis ability at distription is dramatic and one could almost set 'the plc.ture so vividly was it pointed. lie likened the sword to the good book, and gave many incidences where It had been the prop of those in high authority. Can we rid the world of the bible we could not if we tried but to believe in Its truth, men and women of today are asking for proof reasonable proof and Dr. Bulgin can give it to them. It is. he Bays, "the key to all human mystery. Why am I here? What am 1 doing? Where am I going? Can science answer theBe questions?" Then he gave amusingly the Darwin theory, and said, "If any of you are willing to believe your great grand daddy was a monkey, I'm not! even if I do look like one." Then he spoke of tt'- spirit of life dwelling in the human frame and how one might look upon him or his bones long after death and say, "Was there ever any life in Bulgin's old bones?" Just then the squeal of a mule was heard, faintly, but it did not .escape him and he said funnily "Biioiieh to make a mule squeal." HIh humor is llniitable and it is not real wit real humor and conies In quite naturally, making his arguments more forceful and conclusive. His knowledge of all scientific and poetic literature shows the great amount of reading and study he has done to make firm his convictions and his unfaltering faith. He showed how almost every scientific discovery in all ages past, were first made men tion of in the bible and then he de manded of science to prove the origin of human life without going back to the idea of protaplasm which he con sidered no tneory of life, as science Is unable to do this, he lifted the book high above his head and said, "Here Is the key. Here is the mystery solv ed and made clear to the man or woman who believes in it. Not that we may understand it all, for as it Is beyond human invention it is neces sarily beyond comprehension as every great man of bis time has ideas be yond the comprehension of others and the invention is first formed In his ; brain before it Is give i to the world. Without the bible where would be the laws which have ruled and gov erned since Moses gave them to the people from Mount Sinai thousands of years ago. Where would be the beau tiful morals given In all literature Shakespeare, Milton, Ilante and a long line of successors, authors, musicians, statesmen, have everything beautiful and good upon the teachings set forth in this book of books. And yet, the reading of the bibls is forbidden in the schools and this fact is deplored, I as some pans 01 11 couiu sureiy no nu harm to Jew or Gentile. His knowledge or history was o united In their support. This is as it less than that of science and litera-1 Bholl!d be for tne cnlef work ln hand ture, and he believes that the training ls to regcue tne government from re of the mind and the reading of good ;puDl)can maladministration.

It wouU' impossible to describe his manner, his quiet dignity and yet. his great enthusiasm the humor and pathos of his remarks following so rapidly In succession that laughter and tears were mingled and the heart made glad as well as sorry. And in the closing, if the too recent loss of some might cause too great emotion to remain longer, It meant no disrespect, as the closing was a beautiful picture or sadness which must have tried all hearts and brought the tears too fast. Mr. Rose sang then something about the beautiful brook, and his voice took on a tender tone half mixed with tears. Mr. Rose does not mind the sacrifice of tone to temperament and although his voice Is a fine, forceful baritone, he sings for the sentiment alone. It was indeed a service long to be remembered, and as the human mind We Move f PHOENIX SILK HOSE 4 pair three months OMEN'S S5 p is making Americans p a "silk hose nation" 0 it has made possible the luxury of silk hose 0 for constant wear P and the economy that p guaranteed durability p ensures.

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 28. I need not say that Governor Woodrow Wilson was not my first choice for the presi dential nomination at Baltimore; but the moment he was nominated he be came as much my candidate as he was the candidate of any other democrat ebtwixt the two Beas. Every human being, friend or foe, that knows me, knew from the beginning that that is true. I hope and believe that he will be elected. I will use whatever of powr and influnce I possess for the success of "Wilson and Marshall. That i the sort of democrat I am, always was and ever will be. I believe that this Is a democratic year, and that the democrats will win a signal triumph all along the line. I am glad to have had a part in the great work of the democrats in the G2nd congress, which has made a sweeping democratic victory not only possible, but so highly probable as to approximate a certainty as closely as unv event in nnlltlru rnn nnnmximitte certftjnty, Wilson and Marshall are men of high character, and democrats are under the constitution is to have house, senate and president all of the same faith.
