The Convention at Enid Although Harmonious Has an All-Night Session Cross Chosen on the Fortieth Ballot Enid, Ok.. April 22. Tho lariat and most harmonious delegate con vontion of tho Democratic party of Oklahoma In now In session In thin city nnd the nominee of the conven tion will hnve tho honor of represent ing Oklahoma In congress for the en suing two years. Delegates In full from every county In Oklahoma arc here, and the only desire manifested Is to nominate the man who can make a winning fight. Harmonious action Is the slogan be tween all opponents to Republican ism, and tho united front presented augurs ill for the candidate of mill tarism and excessive taxation. At a caucus of the Logan county delegates, I. H. Levy of Guthrie was chosen on resolutions; Jos. Wisby for credentials and Eugene Gill on pormu nent organization. L. G. Nlblaclc was selected ns a member of the terri torial central committee. At 1 p. m. the fight for the nomina tion lay between Maxoy of Pottawato mie and Jones of Logan. Inquiry would seem to place Cross of Okla homa City, Forrest of Canadian and Doylo of Noble outside the breast works. It looks as If dark horses were not In demand, and receptive candl dates are not mentioned. The. central committee has decided upon Hob Ncff of Hlackwcll as pcrmu nent chairman, which is a compliment to tho Bryan wing of the Democratic party, and tho Populists. The convention, which Is absolutely harmonious between Democrats and all element? opposed to the present policy of the general government, will assemble this evening to perfect or ganization. Cross Is Nominated. Special to tho Ardmorclte. Enid, Ok., April 23. Tho Demo cratlc congressional convention, after an all-night session, at 6:20 o"clock this morning nominated W. M. Cross, a traveling man of Oklahoma City, as nominee for dclcgato to congress. Tho ballot was the fortieth, and marked tho end of a hard fight that was led by Cross from tho begin nlng. Tho nomination Is a very strong one, nnd Mr. Cross' election seems certain. Tho platform declares for single statehood, uniting Oklahoma and the Indian Territory as ono state.

These two points are only five miles apart, and the on glnn whistles of the two crows can bo plainly heard by each gang. The creek, which runs through old Mahnsvllle. it was thought would hold them down perhaps n day, but news received from the front this morn- ng stated that they would make no top there at all. It Is safely estimated now that con nection will be made some time Sat- rday, and tho track will bo complete from Ardmore to Hartshorn. The weather Is fine and work of nil kind Is progressing without friction. Jack Clarlssy has laid nbout one ml a half miles of trade In the yards ere, and has nbout four miles more to lay. which he will do as soon as he gets through at the front. Excavation for tho new frolght de pot was begun this morning, and work on tho building will progress as fast as possible from now on. C. if.

Established 9 Yeart, ED PROMISE OF "PORK FROM THE BARREL" DID THE WORK. His Conversion to the New Judicial District Was Brought About In Twenty-four Hours After He Reached Washington. Sperlnl to the Ardmorelte. Wnshlugton. D. C. April 21. Re publican National Committeeman W. M. Mellette, of Vlnlta, I. T has re turned home after several days' visit to the national capital. His visit to Washington was originally for the purpose of endeavoring to defeat the prospective legislation contained lu the Indian appropriation 1)111 creating a new Judicial district in the northern part of Indian Territory. The nation al committeeman, however, had not been in Washington moro than twenty-four hours when his opposition to the proposed legislation cased nnd he became reconciled to It. The rec onciliation was brought about through the promise of Representative Can non nnd other prominent party lead ers that If the Indian Territory peo pie would consent to tho proposed legislation nnd ceaso their opposition to It thnt Mr. Mellette would bo ap pointed United States attorney for the new Western Judicial district. A regular salary of $5,000 per annum affords a much surer living than an Indlvlduay practice, whero tho clients are comparatively poor and the fees aro usually small. Although tho nntlonal committee man reports that last year his Income from tho practice of law was over fo',000, he says frankly that It re quired a great deal of energy to col lect this amount, and that It would bo easier and save a great deal of worry to be on Uncle Sam's pay rolls at a similar salary, payablo monthly. As there Is considerable "pork In the barrel,-4', the probabilities are very strong that the now Judicial district will be created.
