The Negro who will sell hifc
vote ought to be disfranchised and there are several of that kind in Muskogee. Our reporter says that one of the candidates for P. M. did not vote at all. Thin cuss will see ghosts about two months hence. Look at the vote last spring in the 1st and 2nd wards, then look at the vote of Tucstdoy and you can sec where tiio "leek iss," the lilies did net vote and when they did well. Dp, R, M. Counterman of Eu faula, Dr. J. M. Lemons of Ok mulgee, and Dr. M. P. Williams of Muskogee, compose the Board of Medical examiners for the Western district. A minister wno is always dodging around trying to sell his vote and that yt his congrega tion is a servant of the devil and instead of reaching the peany gates will wind up in hell. whoweie cusning out the court house gang, forget that but for the fellows they cuss some of thm would no' be en the run finm here as thy ran from Tex- I a?, and but for the same gang t there would have been several lynchings in this nation. The Republicans have a ma jor ty in this town but a few d n fools keep them split in factions and hence they can't present a solid front to the enemy. Untill the time comes that (the factions of the party can get together there can he 1.0 success. There are now three distinct factions in the party where there should be but one solid phalanx.

Any man who will advise hi& people to vote a Democratic tick et is a democrat, no matter if he has been elected to a place in the party machinery. Hell is full of that kind of traitors, they are traitors to the race, io the party, and to the country. The Negro leader who took up the Democrat cry of "dam the court house gang was alright until he, for some reason, iost his job at the U. S. jail, The court house gang were alright then, but since the whi'e master of the Lincoln club say cuss, the little devils cuss. The masses of the Negroes voted for a republican but there were a number of buccuneers wno sold their votes like cattle, and these were sided and abetcd by a few preachers who should be taken down from the pulpit and placed in a cell for accepting and giving bribes. The dir y work was done oy the same g.'ng that called the meeting on the hill and thoir repentance was on ly a sham to have them do their work under cover. "How dear to my heart is the old silver dollar, w.aen somr kind subscriber presents it to view; the liberty head without necktie or collar, and all the strange that to us seem so new. The wide spreading eagle, the arrows below it, the stars and the words and the strange things they tell. The coin of my fathers, we're glad thai; we know it, for some or other 'twill come in right wall; the spread-eagle dollar, tne star spangled dollar, the old silver dollar we all love so well."
