M Ardmore, Thursday, July 28, 1904. OUR APOLOGY. An unavoidable accident such as will occur at odd times in every printing of fice has not only delayed the issue of to-day's paper but is responsible for the omission of mnch local matter,. So far as recalled. Henry O Davis Is tho oldest (amltdulc ever put on a narlonnl ticket by a gnat party. He Is SI. Sane-tlmoH the mont direct and practical way to net a thing Is to steal It. This seems to be the best defense of Mr. Roosevelt's l'auama policy. What has become of the old fash ioned woman who ran out and caught u chicken, wrung Its neck and had It In the pan before her guests got through protesting that they really couldn't stay? Appeal has been made to tne Unit ed Stntes by Hawnll, to assist In car ing for the colony of nearly a thous and lepers on the Island of MoIokoI. Another unsavory problem brought out by expansion. , , A Parisian chemist recent mends a dash of Iodine In Ice water to kill the germs. The remedy Is said to he very effective exceedingly effectlvo, one mtgfit say. but It will probably not become popular. The Federal Inquiry tfjto tne Slo . um'dtsaster at New York shows con ditions to have been Just at bad as It was possible to have them without going; to extra pains and expense for making them worse. One editor ays: "The more expo rlem e we have in tho business of ed iting a newspaper the more we be nmo convinced that It take more brain to keep things rut of ihe pHper than It does to put thins into the paper." The republican party has no state hood plank in either its territorial ir national platforms. And yet it Is running a c-aMdidate for congress as a statehood champion. Kvldently It is bidding for tno non-rending voto. Oklahoman. Tho ponslon roll of Kansas has been practically at a standstill during tho past year. There has been n de crease of juat nine In the total. The number of pensioners cn the list Is now 1 15.020. as against 116.420 last year During the year i,282 have died and that number of new ones less nii;e have been enrolled. The amount pnfu out during the year at 'II tho T'lpeka a'P'i in y :y $11, 204 J21 12 T - .. ' HON. THOMAS TAGGART. The Democratic iiatltnal commit tee has made no mistake In wlertlns; for Its chairman the Hon Thomas Tagiaxt of Indiana. Mr. Taggart Is a man born to success. In politics as In business he km ws Just what to do, how to organise and how to got I be "est results from the force and resources at his command. The Bust em demand for an Bastern man to head the commtftee wa Insistent and strong, but the more the mat ter has been considered by Judge Parker and his Eastern advisers, the more It became apparent that the chairman should come from the mid dle west. There Is nothing In the se lection of Mr. Tnfrpirt that will pre clude the management of the cam paign In the Kftstern states by East ern men, ' but we oellere It would have been unfortunate for the party's welfare In the West to hare confided the management of the Western sit uation to Ilastern band. Mr. Taggart knows the Western people and understands how to reach them. He knows the Influences) to which tliey are susceptible, and Is a past master In getting such Influences active. The midiHe west Is no less a battleground than the Bast. liven If we get all In the Kant we hope to get. we must yet capture some of the Western stntes In order to Insure victory, and Indiana Is the state which gives greot promise of coming to the Democratic standard. Already tho central committee of Indiana Is receiving thousands of lot ters from the gold Democrats an nouncing thnt they havo returned to the pnrty, and when these arc back It requires only n falfportlon of the Independent vote to land the state squarely In the Democratic column. Tho Republican estimate that 25,- Indiana gold Democrats voted for McKlnlcy In 1M)C. and 20,000 In 1900. The" Democrats have heretofore con tended thnt not more than 15,000 Democrats supported McKlriloy In ilther yenr As the Republican ma jority in 1S9B was 1S.000 and In 1900 20om'. it will be seen thnt on either bnhls the state would have been Dem ocratic in bcth years had the full par ty vote been polled for the candidate. Contrasted with the hnppy condi tions prevailing among the Indiana Democrats" HT tho strife among the Republicans. Mr. Fairbanks ndnilt tedly Ik not strong among the people if ludlnnit. He hns never been elect ed to oillce by the popular vote of the state. Before his election to the senate he was a corporation lawyer nnd In won the legislature by moth o.Ib for which corporation managers are famous. With Taggart directing the cam palgn In general, the promises for victory are radiant. The great movement of gold Damocrata and in dependents to Parker In the Knst will be nccompanled by a similar movement In tho West. Admitting the technical advantages which the Republicans have because of their entrenchment In power, they nre not proof against a g'feat tidal wave, and thnt Ik what Is Indicated at this stage of the campaign. Fo-t Worth Hccord. A young clerk was shut six hours In a refrigerator the other day by ac cident. When at last released, he said lie felt as though he had been at tending a K-clable at a fashionable church. A newspaper publisher always ad mires the gall of a business ninn who asks hlnrto roast farmers for sending fir goods to mail order houses, nnd the same merchant will print his sta tionery with a rubber tarap and nev er advertise. Don't get sore became It stands by those who do not patron ize ft. Why should not the whites govern the South? Besides possessing near ly all t'ue property and Intelligence, they constitute more than two-thirds ot the population, and arc Increasing at a much greater rate than the ne groes. As this Is a government by majority, the whites are going to gov ern the South for all time. Appeal. An editorial In the Port Worth Re cord of Wednesday. July 27. Is as fol lows: Ksopus, X Y..
