Calls Republican Executive Commit tee of Chicka&aw Nation Dad Names, "Rotten Ring Rule, You Pat Me and I'll Pat Yo." Tho Paul Valley Sentinel says: Wo nre not in the political deal, nnil If. the notion of the Republican cxecutlvo committee of the Chicka saw Nation Is n fnlr Sample of poli tics ns nilmlnlBterod down lwre, wo fool suro It Is a good thing wu tiro not.

Commissioner Pnyiu ot Chlckasha, l!ol Cummins of Ada, Hon Colboit of Tishomingo, .Oscnr Wells and John Hlnklo of Ardmoro, (by tho way nil of thorn Federal of ficeholders) mot In Ardmoro, tho homo of tho big machine, and pii dorsod tho candidacy of Colbert for marshal and Humphrey for United States nttorncy. each of them Federal omcoholdors. This was done, not withstanding tho fact some twenty Republican cluba In tho Chlcknsaw Nation had not as yet mado endorse ments upon tho claims of all tho can didates. Tho clalnffc of our townsman, H. M. Carr. woro wholly Ignored notwith standing tho fact that ho has tho ma jority of the peoplo favoring him for district nttornoy, and had been sol omnly promised by a prominent mem ber of tho committee that no endorse ment -would ho mado until all tho cluhi; had been heard from. Mr. Carr was In Oklahoma City when tho meeting was held. All can didates woro present savo himself. Tho action of tho committee Is un precedented and unheard of and Is a dirty political deal that will causo trouble In tho Republican ranks. It wns a snap judgment nnd should not stand, as wo boliovo It will not, bo foro tho president whoso motto Is "a bquaro deal." When five omco holdors meet as a commlttco nnd on. dorso no ono but officeholders, It bo glns to smack ti an outsider of rot ton ring rule, nnd tho policy of "you pat mo mnd I'll pat you." It may bo that politics like this will elovato and ennoble the general public, but wo can hardly sco now such can be hoped for from II.

SaH to bi I lgn,,ance That Hla Action Wf ' In O'.'i Defiance o Law Senators Declare Pres ident is not Congress. Washington. Doc. 23. J. R. Rlshop, formerly "$ 10.000 press agont" of tho Panama Canal Commission, quite un consciously lllui'tratod today the point which is being made against tho administration in its conduct ot tho affairs of tha Panama canal by sen ators and rcprosentntlvoe. It has been assorted by many sen ators, as well as by loaders of tho house of roprestntatlvos, Uint tho president nnd the canal commission havo acted as If they doomed them selves abovo tho power of congros3 nnd entirely outcldo of tho law which governs ordlnnry ofllceholdlng undor statutes o ftho United States. Mr. Bishop announced today that he had assumed tho duties of Pana ma canal comtnif-sloner nnd profess ed to 1k In blissful Ignoranco that his net was In cpon doflnnco of tho law and In open contempt of tho sen ate, which had declined to confirm his nomination. Sonators think It will not ho long before Mr. Rlshop understands that tho prosldont Is not congress; that tho sennto has n voice in tho filling ot the offlccs of tho government, and Uiat It takes something moro than tho moro presidential say-so to mako a canal commissioner. They seem al so to think that It may bo necessary to mako this understood In tho white Iioubo as well as In tho commission! headquarters. Spend Christmas nt tho opera I diouVe.

Merry REPUBLICANS APPALLED AT THE TREND OF AFFAIRS AT WASHINGTON TO SOPER. Many of the Faithful Are Slow to Be lieve the Story That the National Committeeman Has Lost Out With the Powers That De. TUo nnnouncomont In the Ard morello Friday to tho effect that Na tional Committeeman Sofier had boon piratically forcod to leave Washing ton, croaled nothing less than a son ant Ion In Republican ranks. Tho Wnshlngton story wns widely dlscuss ed Among represuitntive citizens nt Ardniore. Whllo It wns siiBpocted that Mr. Sopor's standing nt the Whllo House was somewhat nffoei od hv his Htronuous efforts In bohnlt of candidates, the public genornllv did not think that tho situation would reuch tho tingp where Mr. Soper would ho porgpim mm gratia with President Ilo&ovoll nnd tho depart ments. Tho exact trouble is not known. It In alleged that he hns been Insincere In his actions toward territorial candidates. Those who know Sopor host would bo unwilling to bellevo that ho would do anything that would discredit him In tho least with tho torrltorlal organization. It Is doubted that Sopor hns grafted in connection with his olllco, nnd until tho proof is nbsolute, said a loading Republican, wo will discredit the re port Continuing, the mnn said: "Sopor has had amplo opportunity to graft and I nm of tho honest opinion that ho Is not Hint kind of n man. It may bo that ho 1-ns fallen out with ih prosldont and quit Washington. Ho Is n great fighter, and when ho learn ed that ho could not land his men he probably would not ntand for outsldo appointments. Rut tho fact that he hnd no standing, If tho report Is trup, compels us to look out for our Inter ests. I would suggest that Uto ter ritorial organization meet nt nn early date nnd select somo ono to go to Washington In our bohalj, -JVc can't ."ffor;1 . iw without n hc.id in tho matter of appointments, as wo must protect our homo candidates. Tho situation looks grave for somo of tho homo rulo men, and It Is not nt nil Christmas ! Improbable (hat unless Immediate action Is taken outside candidates will fill tho olllccs. The question of hacking Mr. Soper up should not he considered. If it has reached the stage whore ho has no volco In af fairs then It Is host to elect omo rep resentative mnn to look out for us." In fact, mnny Hopuhllcnns woro deeply concerned over tho turn of affairs and thev discussed tho situa tion freely yesterday. News was awaited with great anxi ety yosterdav and development wero expected, but nothing enmo to c.v lighten tho ranks and tile. In fact tho sllenco was ominous. Probably In tho next day or so the tolltlrnl nt mosphero will be cleared. Kvorybodv Is nnxlous to hear what Mr. Soper will have to tay concerning tho mat ter. One Republican slntoil yesterdpy that Soper ought to be untlsllod; tnat he hnd landed evety inun mi far irl Mint his wIbIios had been followed. Ho Is no greater tliHii the entlro jw ty nnd If ho can't b" requostod to dr things without rett'ilinr it is boit tur him to resign or ol-jt ,i new ninii." Such was the epi'ii'i of tho romarkJ nitido by one o tin) U'iuiIhj; polltlclpni of this section nnd he w frlond'v to tho nnttonnl coininlttermnn. It Is learned that United Stntos Commissioner Itcbnett hns gone to Washington to press his candidacy for tho marshalshlp of the Southorn district. Hobnett is kcoplng tho fight hot nnd snys ho expects to lnnd. If reports tiro true llioro will be no more appointments until after tho holidays. This will glvo torrltory Ropubllcnts a good opportunity to got togother nnd straighten- out matters. Suicide at Davis. Dr. 0, J. Wilson of Davis was In tho city yostorday.
