On this thoy pro pone erecting tho Onost rollroad shops In the Southwest. The geologists toll us that Oklahoma moy find something of value below tho red clay doposlt, and then thoy toll us Hint tho doposlt Is of unknown depth, tho deopost woll which was 1,300 feot deep having failed to punotrato It. In designating Mr. Ilrynn as "tho flawless Jowel in America's crown," a lady orator in New York demonstrated to what heights lady oratory can soar when It has half a chance. Mr. Ilryan Is all right', but, ladles, ho Is opposed to .crpwiiB and halos. The United Status sonato Is giving tho ' world a living Illustration of tho fact that morlt does not always win. Statehood Is being denied territories that are Justly entitled to It simply becauso certain alleged statesmen con alder that It would bo bad politics. Qood roads and good streets are necessary for tho complete prosperity of any city which nsplres to bo tho metropolis of a vast section of country. Of courso right now with ovorythlng In such u muddy lob lolly work Is Im possible, but tho time is certainly ripe for planning bettor conditions. At Witxaliaohlo, ToxnH, a numerous ly signed petition hits boon forwardod to reprosontatlvoH of tho legislature urg ing tho passage of a bill protecting "all birds In Toxos. from tho humming bird to tho buzzard, oxcopt tho English sparrow." That sounds rather tough on tho bloomln' foreigner, but ho should hnvos tayod at homo. The news ngonts aro to bo discon tinued on tho Choctaw railroad sys tom In tho near future, the result of a. decision rcachod by General Superin tendent Went. In ordor to supply the passengers with news material tho railroad company will cstnbllBh nows stands at all stations along Its lines. Tho opidcmlc of typhoid fever at Ithlcn, N. Y., lias claimed sovonteen victims so far, but it'Is now on tho do cllno. There havo been sixty casos at Cornell University nnd six of tho bov unteen deaths were of students. Tho prevalence of tin- fevor is attributed by tho health bonrd to tho impurity of tho wator supply. Tho concensus of official opinion Is that tho contami nation camo from a Kang of Italian la borers v,ho were omployed two months ago to build a new dam at tho water works. Wator Is supplied to llhlcu by a prlvato corporation, which has a contract with tho city. TRUSTS PAY NO DUTIES. A new treasury decision more clear ly defines the right of the Standard Oil romiMUiv to a rebate on the duties Mid on Imported tlnplato for Its cans for foreign shipments. When tae cans are exported W per cent of the diy Is refunded. It Is no new practice. It was pro vided for In the Dingier law, and manr other trusts besides the Stan dard Oil company enjoy the same priv ilege of rebato of duties when the Im ported materials are again exported. The croat trusts are protected by heavy duties on tholr own products, which shutout competition ana enable them to fix their own prices for the American public. Thev are protected attain by this drawback upon tho matorlals Uioy use for the export trade. By reason of this rebato thoy ore "cabled by the government Itself to sell cheaper abroad than at homo. It Is a direct discrimination against the American people. For tho American manufacturers who make tin goods for consumption hero at home thoro In no rebate. Tho con sumers In this country must pay the duty In tho Increased price of the pro- duots. Only the trusts and tholr for eign customers are favorod by this ro- batc. The duty on tlnplate Is sun nosed to bo for tho protoctlon of American tlnplato manufacturers. Ilut since trusts are permitted to got tho duty back again, thus paying no tax. it Is difficult to soo whoroln tho homo man ufacturer of tlnplato Is protected so far as tho trusts' forolgn trade Is con corned. There Is no protection what ever. Tho Amorlcan tlnplato Industry Is sacrificed for tho sako of tho trusts. Tho robato systom only emphasizes again tho fact that no trust every pays a cent of Import duty out of Its own pocket. If tho duty bo paid on an nr- tlclo consumed In this country tho con sumer pays It, If It bo paid on an article sont abroad the government re funds It. The trust Is out nothing in either case. Thoro Is a supposition to the effect that tho forolgn producer of tlnplato pnyB tho duty when the Standard Oil company Imports It, then It would scorn that tho robatu should go to the forolgn producor and not to tho trust. Tho now treasury declulon. llko all previous onos, overlooks this Import ant fact. Ilut tho ono thing that Is not overlooked, and never Is, Is tho In terest of tho trusts. While tho prosldont and confess contlnuo to talk r.bout tying a bell on tho trust cat's nock, tho tariff contin ues to feed and fatten tho cat. GERMANY'S CALL FOR GOLD. Germany still kocps up her domand for tho Immodlato paymont of tho (27,000 duo to bo paid to her ronre sontatlvus at Caracas on tho flftoonth of March. Twlco has Mlnlstor Ilowen beon compelled to rofuso tho requost for nn Immedlato payment. Tho last tlmo ho polltoly Informed,; the German messenger thnt by tho torms of tho protocol tho monoy was to be paid In Caracas, and nny demand for payment on dlfforont termB than mentioned In tho protocol should be mdo through tho Gorman minister In Cnrt.cas, as he had no further concern jn tho matter It was thought for a tlmo (hat dor many'a demand for payment outside or tno provisions of the protocol was for Uio purpose of compllcatlnn and preventing the roturn of tho captured onozuolan war vossols, but this sun position was put to rest by tho return of tho Rostaurador by tho Gorman olll- cors In command lato Monday after noon. Tho latost cuoss ns to tliA In. tout of Germany is thnt the Gorman subjects In Caracas nro nresslnc for tnoir monoy, nnd the Gorman govorn- mont in Its anxiety to nfford thorn re lief us soon nB iKWslblo has koiio to greater lengths than a strict protcol would warrant.

Negro Gets Damages. Trenton, N. J.. Feb. 25. In ih United Statos court horo today a Jury awarded (COO damages to Rov. Honry Johnson of Camden, a colored man who sued tho Iullmnn Car company for (10,000.

Thoroni 'canlxaila'i is ron l It atmeara that the AMlcks' with drnwal was meant In Utt Pickwickian fenM. There Is no lack of harwony among those who sing in the Democratic key The organisation of Democratic itre- cinct clubs Is a dot- the Democrats should perform. It take something moro than a thumbmark on a ballot to proro a man's Democracy. It appears that the Republican anti trust groundhog saw bis shadow and promptly retired. Democrats who have remained true to Democratic principles have never been out of harmony. As a collection agency Emneror Wil liam Is experiencing some difficulty In making bis bluffs stick. The time to organize for the cam paign of 1004 Is now right now. Put none but loyal Democrats on guard. Germany seems bent on a little "be nevolent assimilation" made familiar by recent experiences of our own. Mr. Rockofollcr should hereafter bear In mind tho old ndago: "if you want a thing dono. go; If not, send." If tho "foreigners pay tho tax," as wood protectionists all declare, why was tho coal tariff removed Instead of doubled. Roports from Washington Indicate that Mr. Oxnard Is having crcat diffi culty In getting his several senatorial minds mado up. It appears that the Smootlflcatlon of tho sonato was In the bond. This will account for tho suddon subsidence of Republican Indignation. J. S. Clarkson of Now York is an- othor gentleman who slyly winks at hlmsolf whonevor the subject of civil sorvlco reform comes up. Just as long as Mr. Smoot can keon his Republicanism on straight his ad mittance to tho Republican sonato will not be sorlously obstructed. Loss than two weoks of the present congress remains, and tho hopes or anti-trust legislation or tariff roform ntion havo gono Nelson A. Aldrlchlnc. havo gono Nelson A. Aldrlchlng. Mr. J. Plorpont Morgan Insists that ho Is. not liable for personal taxes In Nov York. Rut Mr. Morgan 'insists that a merger Is a good thing for tho consumors who aro compelled to pay hlghor prices. A younc nobleman vlsltlnir N'nw York City asserts that ho has devised a system for separating gamblers from their monoy. Thoro Is but ono sys- torn of separating gamblors from tholr monoy let tholr gamos alono. CHEAPNESS AND CHEAPNESS. "Wo cannot wear anything In roallty that Is choap," said Bishop Pottor in a 'recent address. "You can't buy a rocent nddress. "You can't buy any thing on a bargain countor without finding on It, If your oyos aro sharp enough, a stain of blood somewhere." That Is a striking observation, well meant, but, llko many clerical utter ances, 6omewhat exaggerated. There are various kinds of cheapness. There Is a cheapness that degrades and a Cheapness that elevates. There Is 1 cheapness thnt drips from souls crushed In the press-of tho sweatshon nnd a cheapness that comes from tho progress of science and ortranlzatlon This latter cheapness measures tho progress of civilization. A hundred years ago a calico gown was a luxury boyond tho reach of tho majority of women. Now working mens wives wear silk. Cheap and good carpots covor floors that once would hnvo beon bnro. Cheap car faro onablos shop girls to rldo to tholr work when In tho old tlmos tholr cm ployors would hnvo walked. Choan postage binds the world together In continuous communication. It Is woll to fight tho sweatshon. but it Is also woll to romember that low price and low wages aro two dif ferent things. Tho Amorlcan watch. made by mnchlnory under tho super vision of the most highly paid labor In the world, undersells In Switzer land Itself tho Swiss watch turned out by hand workers earning a fraction of tho wages paid In tho American factor ies. Vhen wo nro nskod to buy a cheap thing let ustask what mokes It cheap. If the bargain that Ih offered us has been wrung by greed from ne cessity, lot us refuse to touch it but If It bo the product of Increased social efficiency, lot us wolcomo It. For that way lies progress. Now York World. Wapanueka and TIsliomliiKO aro both complaining vory bitterly of the mall aorvlce they aro recolvlng. For some reason mall sorvlco has never been Inaugurated on the Hallovvlllo- Ardmoro lino of tho Choctaw. Tho complaint Is not from theso two towns alone, but Is general from Ardmoro to Halloyvtllo. Efforts to secure mall service aloug this lino has been mado probably from every point, but Just why tho United States ttovoniniont should thus deprlvo tho peoplo of this boon Is one of tho common thiugs In cident to Indian Territory alone ; NEWS OVER 'PHONE.
