This Territory needs a press association witn neau-quarters ni Ardraore. Another attempt with dyna mite has recently been made to Mow up parliament. If they keep laboring in this direction they may finally succeed. We desire to return thanks un funded t two or three friends who remembered us with a smile when the express package came in. Yours to comnvind. . sT?i thought but lew if any ap pointments by the president will he made before the convening of the regular session of Congress in December, Elections were held today in a number of states. Press dis patches do not indicate a Demo cratic victury outside of New Y'ork and Virginia. 'ihc sitaation ia very much mixed in the west. McKinly will r jbably be elected governor of Ohio. j Congress made no appropria tion with which to carry out the provisons of the Gt-ary act de porting Chinese from the bounds .f the United States. This act, like Geary, should be declared unconstitutional and a fraud. Hon. W. B. Houston of Wichi ta Falls, Texas, who was Sent to Wasington to urge the opening of the Sill country, states that it is the opinion of congressmen that the country may be opened next spring, but if not then at least next fall. The Osage Indians, who re fused to treat with the govern ment commissioners for the sale of their land to the government, are circulating' an agreement to take their allotments if the gov ernment will allow them to sell the surplus land to settler in their own way. The settlers of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe country are out in call for a convention asking con gress to repeal that portion of the Act opening that country pnnMd ing for the payment of 1.50 cents an acre for their lands. They want free lands, the same as Ok lahoma proper settlers had and settlers on government lands. Have yu seen Russell's line of overcoats they are daisies and very cheap. If. SMART ALEX ! VThey Take the Law in Their Own Hands Self Constituted Mor al Guardians of Ardmore RAISE AN UNNECESSARY DISTURBANCE. A din equal to the coming in of the new year in Galveston or a Kansas cy clone was heard upon the streets last night. Toot-horns tooted and yells rivaling those of Chicago hoodlums were heard. These disgraceful pro ceedings were the result of some smart Alex, who had took it upon themselves to enforce the laws. If the parly, who this over righteous mob sought to puuish, was a 6trcet fakir of the worst kind it would not have been their place to enforce the laws of the U. S. Government, and City ol Ardmore. As an American citizen he had a perfect right in the pursuit of business and happiness undisturbed by any one except the officers ot the law. His greatest crime seemed to be selling electric belts, something that any man of medical information knows to be no fake. On the contrary they are ot great benefit to the alllicted in mauy in stances. The ugly feature of this per formance was that the righteous mob also threw eggs. The man's wife sud two little children were with him. He was dead game and went "on with hia work. A truo mau will never iufultor wound the feelings of even a fallen woman. One of the miscre ants, if the affair has been reported to us correctly, was arrested. We hope the authorities wilt iiuish him sev erely, and that other parties to this hauieful procedure will bo arrested and punished. They certaiuly had a great deal of presumption to raise this rabble during the sittiug of court. We also understand that tho electric belt mau had cousulted with the lead ing citizens aud Doa-d ot Trade, and paid a license and secured permission Iob;11 his goods on the streets, as thev did uot regard it as a fake, or a gam bling scheme, or anything of that or der. Even if it had been, this would not justify a rabble to take the law in their owu hands and make night hideous in a city whose honor and dignity will and shall be main tained so far as the Akdmokeite is concerned. If the press of this city fails to do its duty in such cases as this and the officials are not properly sustained, greater and stronger street rabbles or mobs will occur, ami from small beginings greater results will grow. Hoosicrs, aud wild men with big spurs, will always be found ready to raise caiu aud join in and paint the town red you know. From what we can understand this element predom inated last night. This office has secured the letter Jist publication for Ard more and it will hereafter appear in thpse columns. The bar of Ardmore have almost unanimous ly promised this office all legal advertising.

He has built up a good reputation for the house and is making good money from a first diss trade. Hon. Cliffcd L. Jackson prosecu ting attorney for the Indiau Territo ry, came in on the 10.30 train. From him it is learned that the prisoners confined in the Muskogee jail attempt ed to liberate themselves last night by burning the jail. The bastile was reduced to ruins but none of its in mates escaped. Last Friday a man appeared at the counter of the Central hotel and reg istered as J. M.- Wilson, ot Nebraska. He was well appearing and was not slow to display a large roll of money Which he tendered landlord Ladd for safe keeping. Mr. Ladd refused to accept same as he had no safe in Which to place it. The next move ment of the mau was to volunteer the information that he had bought out Jerry Washington at Marietta, aud that he owned an extensive cattle rancL in the far north-west in fact that he was a regular creosus of mod ern proportions. He offered to pay Mr, Ladd a princely salary to go with bim giving him choice betyveen taking charge of the Washington place or any one ot his numerous wes tern possessions. Mr. Ladd was favorably impressed and was se riously considering his propositions when all at once bis anticipations were suddenly and cruelly blasted Jerry Washington appeared in Ard more and Mr. Ladd in order to more thoroughly satisfy himself asked him relative to the transaction. Mr. Washington was surprised to learn that such a rumor could have gained credence as he had never been even approached on the subject of selling. Ladd hurried to see his man Wilj son and demanded au explanation, but no explanation could be given. Wilson become very much excited and excused himself for a few mo ment?, rince which time he has not been seen around the centra!. He did not even f ace time to pay his bill.
