Mil rn Ardmore, Thursday, May 28, 1903. Like Orover, Roosovolt Is In tbo hands of his friend. the In A list fight hag grown out of Doatofllco department scandal Washington. Got somo moro of them mad at each other nnd thoy will toll tho wholo business. Jctt, tho Kentucky assassin, hav ing been Indicted for murder, now threatens to tell all ho knows. If ho does his hldo will bo full of holos be ioro any court can convict him. A Michigan legislator has Intro duced a bill for tho killing of feeble minded children by electricity. It fce-blo-mlndcd children had been killed in days gono by, where would bo bo? ho be? President stated in ono of his speeches on tho Pacific coast that ho wants to seo Alaska admitted to stato hood. What's tho mattor with Ok lahoma, Arlrona, New Moxlco and In dian Territory? Reports from nil points reached by telcphono g,lve assuranco that no ilnmnro to nmount to anything was done by" tho storm Jasjnlght, Hall fell nt various points but not In damaging quantities. Tho war department tied received details of tho raising of tho flagship of tho Spanish Admiral Montojo, which ahow that an Slnch . shell from an American gun, entering at tho bow, completely disabled tho vessel. A SERIOUS QUESTION. Thero I that lu a brutal negro which can not bo restrained by any fear of mobs or tho gallows or fire. Many or tho Ignorant, brutal negroes at tho South nro natural bnito beasts, made so by tho llfo thoy lead draw ing out tho vicious naturo which thoy possess. It Is racial. It comos from the blood which was brought over from African savagery, and It has not been obliterated, and will not bo for gen erations yet to come. It has been re strained by servitude and association, and In many Southern negroes has been supppressed by tho gentle Influ ences Of civilization; and It has been subdued In all of the puro blood Af rlcans who havo lived soberly and de cently. Subjected to any form of debauch ery and dissipation, this blood asserts Itself, and Is as irresistible as any thing In human life. It demands any kind of sacrifice or sacrilege. It Is as vicious as hell and as violent as human passion over gets to bo. The lecherous negro who feels the hot burning of this savage nature is a fiend Incarnate, as conscienceless as r. devil and as diabolical as a demon. Ho Is a demon then. No fear, no or dinary omotlon, would movo him any moro than tho chirping of a bird. He Is worso than a madman. Ho is fiend ish In his lust and determined In his purpose. II no commits a crime wor thy ot tho severest torture It Is bc causo he Is too Insano to antlclpato or dread that torture. Whatever pun ishment may bo motcd out to him will not deter somo other negro Uko htm when seized with tho samo In ano passion. This is tho sober truth which under lies every ono of tho awful crimes which negroes havo committed In tho Southern states against whlto women. Tho opportunity, tho tomptatlon to commit such a crime, Is tho match which sots flro to tho nogro blood, and then the crlmo Inovltably follows. What Is to be dono with such boasts? It Is a serious question. It must bo sorlously considered. Register. IT DANGER FROM RISE IN ABOUT OVER. RIVER Rail roads Suffer Immense Lots.

The dan ger In tho rise from the Washltn and South Canadian rivers is about over at Chlckasbw and nearby points. The river Is receding rapidly and the houses along tho line of the creek, which were from ono to four feet In water yesterday, are today on dry land again. Both the Rock Island and Frisco railroads have large forces of men at work repairing tho damages to bridges track and embankments. But thero Is no telling when traffic will bo resumed. The flood was by far tho greatest In the history of the country, tzi the damage Is bo great It will take weeks to gets things In shapo again. Almost every brldgo on the Rock Island road in thU sec tion Is gone, while tho Enid and Ana darko lino above Anadarko Is washed out for miles. Tho Frisco fared almost as badly and tho damago to its brldgo across tho South Canadian river alone will lmpcdo traffic for weeks. Chlckasha has had but ono train a day from the south for four days. Big construction gangs are being sent out In every direction on tbo Rock Island and every able-bodied man who will work Is being pressed Into service Telephone and telegraph wires are also badly damaged and they aro al most as badly crippled as the railroads.

Tho report comes from San Fran Cisco that President Roosevelt hns beon convinced by tho business men of that city that tho time has como for making n chnnge In the commer cial features of our Philippine policy, by treating the trade of tho Islands In something tho samo wny that wo have been disposed to treat our trade relations with Cuba, only In n more comprehensive mannor,' or, as Pros! dent Roosevelt Is quoted as saying, "So far as tho tariff Is concerned, let It be such as will make n market for American goods to tho exclusion of European or Japanese competition." Thrit Is to say, another step is to bo taken to convlnco "these people whom Providence has brought within our Jurisdiction that It Is their wclfaro and not our gain that wo aro Booking o enhance."
