Sound Indorsement. This Paper's Ideas of a Voluntary City Government Are Good. PROMINENT AND LEADING CITIZENS OF ARDMORE FREELY EXPRESS THEMSELVES. The following interviews were made today with leading citizens in regard to a government within a gov ernment as the Ardmoreite's position in regard to what is wisest and best for the present and future needs ol Ardmore. We will simply add to what has already been said upon tliit important matter, that as the sur rounding towns and counties become more and more puffed up, ArdiuoruV importance will begin to fade awa as time goes on. No matter what the local and natural advantages of a place may be, there will come a time when efforts will be made to cause the plan of interests and popularity to diverge. History everywhere demonstrates that all local and u it ural advantages of one town can be easily overcome by a less fortuuate rival, whose citizens are wideawake and enterprising. A great city must necessarily arise iu the Indian Terri tory. Ardmore is already conceded by its rivals tc be at this time the leading and most important city in the territory. Our natural ail vant ages stand out iu a conspicuous man ner and speak for themselves. But, citizens of Ardinore. these natural resources will need aid and assistance of every sort to become effective and operative. Remember, furthermore, that now is THE time to get up and more. Capt J. L. Gait: "I am thoroughly iu harmony with auy movement hav ing in view the organizatioa of a city goverument,aud I believe a voluntary municipal power is our only reme dy under existing circumstances. If a majority of the business men will enter into the execution of the Ard moreite's suyesiious, those who are now apathetic on the subject would fall into line when confronted by pub He sentiment. Ve must have some thing better than at present, and I am in favor of immediate organiza tion." T. II, Parker said: "I believe in it and will go so far as to say we must have it. The Ardmoreite is right in its suggestion, and the people should lose no time in taking them up and acting Upon them." Think of it. Ardmore is a town of about 4,000 inhabitants. Ard more does the business of a place five times its size. No city gov ernment. That a city government can be effectively established is agreed upon by several of our prominent jurist. Citizens of Ard more, it behooves every one of you to "lay dead" no longer. Judge Stuart st-'t aide the attach ment in the suit of Kahu vs. Hunger ford. The jury in the Rolf case rendered a verdict for $10,000 in favor of plaintiff. Mac White and wife of Wynne wood are in the city in attendance upon court. Miss Elsie Nelms met with a pain ful accident by scalding her hand with hot coffee. J. M, McCannon representing the Ames Iron works; of Dallas. Texas, is circulating among our citizens. Teas, coffees and imported goods a speciality at the McCoy brick, where J N. Worthy now holds forth. For fruits, oranges and nuts of all kinds, call ou J. N. Worthy at his new stand.

A v A OUR FUTURE GREATNESS Assured If We Are Alive to the Present Needs. There is coming a time,and that, too, in the near future, when the clouds of uncertainty and the mist of doubt will all be cleared away and the dawning light of a new era bright as the noon day sun will flood the beautiful hills and valleys of this the fairest spot of allot' Uncle Sam's domain. The questions of titles, sufferase and citizenship will be qickl74ndonnd4;,r definitely settled and out of the gloom of present complications, standing high above all would be rivals, 8me one city of destiny will rise to might and power and take its place among the cities of the union as the metropolis of the brightest star in Columbia's crown. As to what place it will be pres ent events .must determine, for chat in an embryo state that ity does now exist there can be no doubt. The Creator may make town sites but the people must make the town, and in that ham let, village or more pretentious city where unity of action, concen tration of efforts, preception of ad vantages and readiness to grasp the possibilities are utilized to the greatest extent, in that place will be found in a few years the hub and center of the south n est. That Ardinore, the Summit city, can attain that proud destinction, .all will admit, but. it can not, be I done without an effort on the part of those who should be most inter ested. Ihis plate has without an effort on the part of anyone reach ed its present greatness merely by force of circumstances and natural j advantages and will no doubt con tinue to grow as the surrounding Country settles up and develops, but it is in the power of our citi zens to make the future discount the past in progress, and establish our supremacy on a foundation so firm that no ambitious rival will appear to content the title when the coming events which ere now "have cast their shadows before" shall come to pass; if we show by united action that we are alive to the situation, that we are a unit in progression and have the proper idea of our possibilities to profit by the coming changs. If we demonstrate to the country that we have the energy, pluck, enter prise and public spirit essential to the upbuilding of a city, we will receive the recognition and finan cial aid necessary to our greatness. The general appearance of our streets, our manner of conducting what should be public business, our method of local government, our efforts to advance by cleanli ness aDd beauty the comfort of our citizens, our encouragement given to new enterprises and our busi ness methods generally will have a very great deal to do in deter mining whether or not Ardmore shall be the metropolis, A series of interviews published heretofore quote many of our prominent business men on the idea of local government advanced by the ardmoreite in a previous issue. It may be some better plan than that suggested can be formu lated, but it can only be done by a discussion of the subject and that discussion can be made general by a series of public meetings. There will be dissenters to any plan proposed, but the broadgauge individual with an opinion of his own and the courage of his convic tions in such a time as this is worth twenty who, for business rea sons, foolishly imagine their pock' eta will suffer by agitating a ques--tioxr of this nature. Th first grand stride for war & and onward is agitation, the next deliberatkmandthen coaeaaetioa, Will his Honor the President of the Board of Trade interest himself in this matter, and by get ting up a rousing meeting, have the subject which so much con cerns tls thoroughly agitated, delib erated and acted upon!

T, AT THE OPERA HOUSE. The play at the opera house last night by the Jennie Hoi man com pany was an aosoiute success in every sense. In spite of the incle ment weather and threatening clouds overhead the house Was filled with the elite of the city ''Inside Track" was the title of the play, and it possesses many pointa of merit, which were fully Sustain ed by the perfect acting of each part by the respective performers The large audience evinced its appreciation1 of the dramatic talent displayed by liberal and hearty applause. Miss HolmaH, as Jerry Twaddle, was, to excuse the term simply "out of eight whilw Mr J. Harvey Cook, as Harry Den beigh was as fine a piece of acting as one Would witness in many miles' travel. The support through-' out was fine and each performer carried his or her part in a most creditable manner.

Mm Battled With Bally mM fcn6oke4 Him Into Cooked Rat. . When Sir Richard Burton was trans-; forred from Fernando Po to the 'cob' striate of Santos and Sao Panic, tbertf was a seminary of Capuchins, French men and Italians, which contained one curious specimens of muscalay Christianity. For example: "One of the mtfuk't was a tall, magnificent, and Tory pow erful man, an ex-cavalry officer. Count Somebody, whose name I forget, thtJt! Fray G . Before be arrived ther I -was a bullv in town, rather at . frw tUlnkinar class, so he used to go and swagger tip and down before the aen Inary and call out: 'Come out yod miserable pctticoated monks! Come eat and have a free fight for God or the devfl." When Fray G arrived be heard of this, and it so happened be had had an English friend, when! he was With his regiment, who bad taught him the use of his fists. He found that bis brother monks were? dreadfully distressed at this un seemly challenge, so be said: Th I next time be comes, don't opett tha tTui A hilt. Int. ThA nnrts. noli ... i t0 the next time the bully ap peared, it was so arranged that th gate was opened by Fray G (the esual crowd had collected in the road to see the fnn), who looked at him laughingly and said, 'Surely brother we will fight for God or th devil. If you pleas-' So saving the frlaf turned up his sleeves and gown, and told his adversary to 'come on,' which be did, and he was immediately knooked into a cocked bat. 'Come, get up said the friar. 'No lyinjr there and whimpering; the devil Won't win that way.' The man stood thretf rounds, at the end of wbiob he whim pered and halloaed for mere and midst the Jeers and bravos of a larget crowd the "village oock' retired, a) mass oi jelly and pulp, and was never seen within more than half a mil of tke seminary." - OPERA :-: HOUSE.
