' The Chieftain has discontinued ts evening edition and sold the circulation and good will to the Ard anoreite. Those o f the subscribers to the Chieftain who wish to continue She same to the Ardmoreite will please notify the carrier or make it Ttmuat ouromcCT Rcsoxctfully, Kesselbr, Cloyd & Co. TO THE CITIZENS OF ARDMORE. The Ardmoreite, having purchased the evening Chieftain, will hereafter be an evening paper and Sunday morning. We will come out every day In the week except Saturday even ' the Sundav morning paper filling tti place of Saturday evening. We 'respectfully request ihe patrons of the veuing Chieftain to continue their subscriptions to the evening Ard . naoreite. With the circulation of the two papers combined we, start off with a first class circulation for a city of this sixe. The Ardmoreite is purely, as its name Indicates, an Ard uaore paper, run tor the interest and entertainment of Ardmore. D. P. Cloyd i The members of the Pawnee Townsite Company have been as sessed $10 each to pay for lands. All members in good standing on the; 15th instant will fall heir to three lots. Some papers speak lightly of the ability of Chief Harris, of the Cherokee Nation- Harris has clearly demonstrated that he is i both able and capable, and is the equal of any of U. S. Senators and the superior of some of them. The Texap State Fair, at Dallas has closed for the season. The fair was well attended and aJl who were so fortunate to attend speak of it in the highest terms. Too much cannot be said in praise of Pallas and her enterprising people. Every patriotic Texan is on ager tiptoe to see Chairman Say era make for himself a national reputation. He can do it. Dallas News. That he can. Joe is the right boy in the right place. Gov. Wolfe has called aconven 'of his people to meet at Tisho mingo on next Monday, November 6, to counteract the statement made that the late convention eV4 at Purcell represented the the sentiment of the Chickasaws regarding statehood. O. S. Bally can be found at Hall & Ryan's drug store. South Main street. Mr. Baily is city sanitarian It may prove cheaper t employ Mr Baily than a doelor. n3 t Ed Crate, an Teed, man, was tried in McKiniey Texas, on a burglar charge, to which he plead guilty. He Btood before the court and in 'the most eloquent k terms pleaded ibr mercy. Among other things he said: I was raised a gentleman, have served as a school' tiacher and book keeper many years. At last strong drink captured my appetite and brought me down to a common ralroad hand, thence to the jail, and now I stand before a jury of my frllowmen pleading to be shieliled from a sentence to the penitentiary on a charge of bur- i?larv. the eanK? of which was to train monev to bur whiskey to I - " satisfy a craven appetite." He quote iruu. , ouaapuai aim Other authors on the subject of mercy. His Pspeech made an im- prossion on the judge, jury lawyers aiyd spectators. After his speech bis lawyers declined to address the jury. The jury, returned a verdict of two years in the peni tentiary, the lowest punishment provided for by the law. On the sixteenth of last month a wreck occurred on the Wahaeh road, just out of St Louis. On the train, among others, was a heroine in the person of a young lady; she played this part mure than one time on this occasion in rendering timely assist ance to the poor unfortunates who were unable to help themselves, and one which is mora !hsn worthy ToT mentfonris where this brav'W-.vul "- yonng woman saw a young man named Kaufman, of Memphis, Ten. nessee, lying beside the wreck, bleed. ins profusely from an ugly wound he had received in the bead. She re alized at a glance that , something must be quickly done else1 the young man would bleed to death;. Without a moment's hesitation she tore off a strip from her underskirt fctnd bound it about voung Kaufman's! head, thus checking the flow of bloodi and saved his life. The tender and womanly heart that guided these hands to such timely and herioc work was none other than Miss Lizzie Taylor of Jefferson, Texas. Miss Lizzie is a daughter of Dr. John M. Taylor, an eminent physician of that town and is highly esteemed by all who know her. She no doubt has many ac quaintances among the many old Jeffersonians who now reside in Ardmore. ' No oter president has ever been so closely guarded from dangerous cranks as is Mr. Cleveland now. This precautions taken for his pro tection are unprecidented. There seems to be an epidemic of lunacy at present, and demented persons generally mase tne w nite xiousn their Mecca. An average of two of them each day have called to see the chief magistrate during the last month. Most of them are harmless, but a few of them are disposed to be violent. Chief tain. It is noticed that these cranks or crazy people, so cilled, always select some victim of prominence and of much use to his country. They do this for the sole purpose of obtaining notoriety, as in the case of Garfield, Lincoln, or the late Carter Harrison. Not unfre. quently these skulking, sneaking assassins select some victim be cause of his wealth. In all cases they are actuated more from a de sire of notoriety than anything else and then turn crank and play the crazy dodge afterwards to escape the penalty of the law. If detected in their attempts it is easy, with a a good lawyer, for them to escape on th's crank dodge. If their plea is just they should be sent to asy lums or the penitentiary for life as a future protection to society. If it is not justjthey should promptly ARDMORE, CHICKASAW NATION, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 2 be . hung by the nap of the neck until they are dead, d and d , which means dead, da ed and delivered.

He offers no solution for any problem. He is n enemy to the whites from whom he derives his support. He sycophauts to the Indian. He hypo crites to the white. Could he have his way, as evidenced by bis own language in tne following extract of bis last paper, he would soon drive out all white peeple from the Chicka saw nation: "Let the Chickasaws not forget the convention to be held at Tishomingo, to pass resolutions; let those- resolutions speak so that the 'boomer" press and element cannot misunderstand their meaning." Alliance Courier. Not content with hurling this in suit into the face of every editor in the Chickasaw Nation 4 he would have the Indians drive out all papers except the Alliance Courier.

A General Summary of Condensed and Clipped Our Daily Exchange. News. From At Last. A speeial to the Dallas News says the bill repealing j the purchasing clause of the Snerman law hs passed both houses and been approved by the president. Thus after nearly three months the object of the extra ordinary session has been accom plished. It must be said to the credit to the lower house that as a whole it made no factional fight against the inevitable. The majority of the sil ver men content themselves with put ting in their protest against the pas sage of the bill by voting against it. There were a few, not more than twenty-four including populists, who thought it proper to go further and talk in the last ditch. The bill was pushed through the house before the silver men knew it. Mr. Joseph, delegate from New Mexico, has presented a favorable report to the house from the com. mittee on territories on the bill ad mitting New Mexico. A fire broke out in Dallas on last Tuesday morning in the five-story brick building, opposite the News office, on Commerce street. The fir licked up $120,000 worth of pro; erty.
