True dem- cracy does not consist in being a democrat because you were born in t'.ie south or any titer spot, nor because of the poli tics of your parents. The ideal of the independent fair minded Jef fersonian democracy if: "The greatest goxi to the greatest num ber." There is very little differ ence in the ideal or cardinal planks or platforms and principles of the Republican and Dem tcratic party. Politicians at ti;nes have a hxrd tim;tostir up m ilice ami hatred between the independent and con servative voters, who are the safe guards of this and every other country. This independent ele ment, which the democracy pre- t mds to despise and dubs as mug wumps, etc has ever been the bulwarks of the party. It grew from democracy. It is this ele ment, the independent, conserva tive element, that is courted bv all parties and creeds. They will not sell themselves into bandage t any church or party. They will not bind themselves to serve contrary to their best conscien tious convictions of duty to their country, A German - recently arrived in Ardmore. He desired to learn tome thing of the politics of this country. He went to London & Moore's and purchased a Globe Democrat. He soon became con versance thought, with American Democracy. Desiring to familiar ixe himself with Republican poli tic he g?es back and buys the St Louis Republican. "Mine Got," exclaimed he, vat kind uv language is .de6e United States language.' I buys von Demi k rat paper it vas all Republi can, I buys von Republican paper, it vas all democratic" He informed the editor of the Ardmoreite that he was so mixed up in his politics that when he ran for Alderman of the First Ward of Ardmore, that it would be either on the Ardmore Alliance Courier or Ad more Chieftain ticket. ' The old Democratic ideal, when followed in a temperate zone and conservative channel, is the cor rect ideal to set before you to shape your course of political and religions action in life. The church or party that ia engaged in administering the word of God, the laws of the land, and their "ther powers and influence, with the expressed and acknowledged motive of banting down one part or party of society and building af another part or party upon its overthrow and ruin, is unconstitu tional and contrary to the revealed will of our God and Savior. It is enough for a democratic editor to announce hi paper as being dem ocratic. It is erroneous in him to not have proper respect for the political feelings ot those who differ with him. He should pub lish what he finds against true A mericah Democracy in place of what is for' it, and if h has any editorial ability he will find little trouble in explaning away the prejudiced and erroneous asser- I tions made gaint the true spirit of Democracy, without offending and repulsing the independent conservative tleraent or wounding the feelings of Populist and lie publicans There is talk of a Democratic paper in Arc! more. Widely handled it will be a benefit and a blearing. Like every other good thing it can be abu.-ed and made a detriment to Ardmore and the cau-e it seeks to benefit. Jim Edward's, Caney (Kansas) Chronicle reaches our table. Mr. Edwards is improving the Chnni c.'e and putting it to the front. It is new one of the best papers pub lished in Kansas. Jim deserves success if any one man ever did. He is a brilliant young writer and with fiur or five years experience will becomo one of the leading newspaper men of Kansas.

The reporter has at last bad an op portunity to notice some of the methods, of conducting an examining trial before a Paris commissioner. Yesterday, during the proceedings in the Watsou case, several witnesses were introduced to testify as to the good character of the accused. On cross examination, the court asked if he was such a man as would likely fiAfitr r(f rpfifi whpn m wrnnor rl hean don htm. Th wifP rnU.A tW he thought so. in a legal way. The commissioner would not permit the manner of redress to appear in the record, aud when the defendant's at torney asked the question, "Do you think he is the kind of a man that would seek redress by murder or by i.fi . iiiiriiiK auy uao eme 10 commit in 11 r- the commissioner stopped him with the startling information that the question was irrelevant, and n.ust not be answered, as it would only be the opinion of the witness. It appeared to the reporter that in this action there were no quarters to be shown, but tbat the court had its decision stored away before any evi dence had been taken. THE WATSON CASE. Below is given the outline of the testimony in the Watson case, as given yesterday before Commissioner Gibbous : Herman Seybolt, of Paul's Valley, testified in substance as follows : "I lived in Ardmore in September, 1892; knew Watsou when I saw him; knew Sam Smith; remember the cir cumstance of the killing of George Adler; saw Watson at that time at Smith's butcher shop; tbat was the dav before the killing, or it may have beeu the same day; Watsou was talk ing with Smith; 1 went in the shop; saw Smith and Watsou standing in the rear room; heard Watsou any. 'I reckon 50 cents will do'- saw Smith run his hand in his pocket, but did not see him pay anything; I heard Watson say, 'I have caps and powder, shot is all I want'; heard him say be had a gun; did not hear him say whost gun he had; saw Watson come out ot Spragius' hardware store: be had a sma'l package." Howard Bess, the next witness, tes tified as follows : -nave uvea nere lour years; was here in September, 1892; know the defendant; I remember baving heard ot the killing of Adler; I owned a shotgun at that time; think Bose Walker had my gun at the time Ad ler was killed; if Walker did not have it I don't remember who did; deiend ant told me two or three weeks ago that my gun was reported to be the one with which Adler was killed; conveyed the idea that Smith or Lebo had used it; have never loaned de fendant a gun; he has a shotgun." Nathan Hughes testified as follows: "Watson said to me that if this cat tle stealing did not stop, a Dutchman would come up dead; we were talking about Adler at the time, which was only a few days before the killing." William Miles testified that he was the man holding the light for Aaler when he was killed; that Watson came to him and told him that if he was arrested he had $100 to give him to swear like he wanted him to in case he was arrested. William Jackson, for the defense, testified that at the time of the kill ing he had Bess' gun; the character of defendant is good. A number of witnesses wre called fcr the defense, but their testimony was not permitted to go in record further than it related to the good character of the defendant. HOTEL FOR RENT.
