Tho question of what hbould be done for tho Indian Territory at the com ing roMou of congress Is bolng dlH cussed more now than probably at nny other tlmo In tho territory's history. Members of congress havo repeatedly assorted that when our people havo agreed upon what thoy wnnt that they wero willing to act for ub. This tho territory has never done, and until we do our part wo need not oxpocl u:iy kind of legislation. Tho South MeAl cfctor convention to bo hold November 5 offera tho territory Its opportunity to decide those questions and declare itself In ii Htralght-forward mannor. Tho Indian, tho white man, tho stock limn, tho farmer, the business man ntul everybody In the territory should feel enough Interest In this matter to at loast bo present on this occasion. Wo nro ono common people, with ono ccipjnon Interest and why should wo not pull together? Tho cattlemen rcnllmi that the day or big pastures and free grass In this country bolongn only to tho past. Tho Indian, even tho Jnost unprogreslvo element, knowlf that tho hunting grounds aro all gxjne. Tho farmer cannot keep his chlld&n out of school nny longer, so II solri'othlng Ib not done and that prettx quick, ho will move elsewhere whory he am glvo nls family tho ad vantages of education. The mer chant) cannot build lirldges and keep tho riwida In repair when tho farmer la gone. It Is not our purpose to explain how wo happened, to be here or why these conditions exist. We simply know that those aro facts. And as to tho remedy wo have learned, as ab2vo stnted, that unless wo Van tell cjngress what wo want we need not expect to got It. Memorials to the law-makers havo all failed for the reason that thoy have boon sent up from different parts or the country where different conditions prevail and hnvofnot boon uniform In their do ninnds. Delegates heretofore sent lo congress havo ontortalned as widely different views as those expressed In tho memorials. Now the opportunity la given for us to come together as one man, full or patriotism and with the lovo or country u heart and de mand representation as American citi zens. Sufficient encouragement has been given us by leading congressmen to lead us In the belief that tho terri tory will bo granted a delegate at this session. Whether ono of live repre sentatives bo sent to look alter the legislation, let them bo united on the m (i single issue of securing legisla tion providing for a delogate. Mass meetings should be called and dele gates chosou to the convention called to conveno at 10 o'clock n. in. Novem ber 5, at South McAlestor. WEEKLY DEMOCRATIC LETTER FALL ELECTIONS.

Oct. 2C The coming mil election aro Important us showing the drift of public opinion im political iMiien, and o-ix.-clully how the voters ef the states In which elec tions are held view the erratic couno oi th Republican administration. It tho Hojmbllcuns hold their own, It n ust be takon for granted that tno nmjorlty of the voter of the United Stntoa are satisfied to continue tho ex tortion of the trusts through the pro tective tariff and the continued high prices of the flat of llvmg. lly on doming the ltepubllcnna, the voters will sanction tho program that the lenders of Uiolr party havo agreed up on, or allowing congress to take no action other than to puss tho appro priation mil and adjourn at the earli est day practicable. That would menu tho transcontinen tal railroads havo Mtlllclent Influence with tho Kopubllean leaders to provent the building of the Panama or Nicara gua canal; that no action will be ta ken upon treaties which President Mc Klnley ardently wish to see rati fied, to ward on" tho Inevitable reronn ol the tariff, which ho foresaw must come unless noma relief from motion- oly was granted; that (ho much ngl- tilted labor legislation In again to bo postponed, and that tho promises mado in th Republican plntform are again to be broken; that no Investiga tion of tho frauds In the ilfpartmenin U to be nnd 'rtakon, that the llnanclal leglslotlru that has b en d -dared so J.ec(Hary i prevent a panic will not bo attempted, and that the secretary be attempted, and that Secretary Shaw can continue to loan tho sur plus, without Interest, to favored banks and continue to disobey tho law for the protection or tho United States by receiving doubtful security In place or United States bonds, which tho law plainly i-ominnnds. Why U this Republican administration nfrald to leglslato on thoso and oili er matters? llolng in league with tho trusts and combines, thoy dnro not legislate ngnlnst them. Thoy rear the people. ir the Democrats show gains In the elections this rail It will indicate that tho voters are determined to turn out tho Republicans, with their numer ous scandals, and Inaugurato tho re ronn that Is necessary for tho public weirare. "ICqual rights to all and npo clal privileges to none' is tho Demo cratic slogan, and as tho voters are be ginning to seo thnt trust prosperity means the piling up or millions In tho pockets or the favored few and no fair share to tho man)". It Is only rea-' sonablp to expect that voters will de mand a change In politico conditions. That tho Republican leadwtcan fright osperatl rnVrtofti would not ltavenutliorlzed the speak ing members ol his cabinet to take tin- Btump for tho Iodge machine In Massachusetts, and to aid tho dlsro utable 'crew In Kentucky that call themselves the Republican party In that state. The disagreement between Russia and Japan and the utter breakdown of tho inuch-hernldod "open door" in Manchuria has alarmed the export merchants of the United States, and thoy havo sounded a note of warning to President Roosevelt anil the Re publican loaders that instead of aiding the enlargement of our business In ,sln. thoy have virtually closed tho door that was at least partly open. That Russia will ever withdraw from Manchuria Ik not within tho realm of probability; she owns tho railroads and the hanks there; tho Chinese au thorities nro subservient to tho RuS' slim representatives; In a word, Mini churl 1h Russtanlxed. The boast of tho administration that the treaty Just concluded with China kIvos us two open ports In that country Is. there- fore, worthless, unless Russia opens their floors, for she has tho keys to both of them. Kven ir thoHo two ports were open, are thoy of value? Mook den, one of tho two, is on n small river KM) miles trom the son, access ablo by a scow, anil Nlu t'hwang. at the mouth of the stream. Is occiplcd by the Russians. The other village Is on the coast, but there Is no harbor and so shoal is tho oiling that no man ot-war could approach within twenty miles. Tho merchant who tries to got any trade through those open doors will not bloHH John Hay and the Ro publican party Thu sugar trust, having bought n controlling Interest in its competitor the beet sugar trust, tho light so long wag J between tho iU-iuIil..an tloTm ovi-. Cui an nuprouty will prb nbly d-av. The rt''iuiion In the 'Hi t;- m sugar ror which Cuban tfci t roclty provides, will glvo the com b.ned trust an enormous bonus, amounting to a million of dollars on all tho raw sugar Imported from Cu ba, ami, under the ordinary laws of trade, the price of refined fttgnr should decline at tho eatne ratio. Hut the trust Is so fully protected by about one and one-quarter cents a pound on refined sugar that tho forolgn ar ticle can hardly be Imported here to compote with the trust. Froight, tar iri duty and other charges make the cost or Importing foreign refined suar about equal to the trnct price. If raw and refined miRnr paid tho same duty, the trot would have to reduce lt prlco accordingly and the consumers of the United States would buy their sugar at retail for at least .one cent a iound less than they jmy for it now. That i the reason the Democrats in the lat con uress proiosed and pass ed through the house of representa tive the amendment to the Cuban rcc iproclty bill abolishing the oxtra tar iff duty on romied sugar, which Is technically called discriminating du ty. WhQii the Cuban reciprocity meas ure comes tip at the coming session of congre tho Democrats will offer the same amendments. How many Republicans will be found voting with tl-.em? The Issue will be a plain one the trust or tho people. ASK CONGRESS TO PROVIDE FOR SYSTEM OF SCHOOLS. oiiotl to tho point of desperation is plain enough cr President Roosevelt A.
