It cannot be done, but the effort Indicates one of the peculiarities of the human mind also ono of the tricks of politics. oo TWO FUSIONS. Vermont democrats and Indepen dent republicans have fused. They hope to carry the state. There Is a re bellion, In the Republican party nRalnst the Proctor machine. For several years Senator Proctor has had full control of the state nnd this year had his son nnmlnnted by th i.ipchlno for (lovernor. Tho revolt Is finite strong mid tho' Independent Republicans have named a mail for Governor and tho Democrats have on dorsed him. Tho total vote of Ver mont In l'02 waH C9.700. Of that, tho Democrats got 7,304. in 100 1 tho Dum ocrnts got Hi.CCG, or about one-third of the totnl vote. In 1002 tho Itepub- l'cans won, but on ii plurality the Dem ocrniit vote of 7.3CI nnd tho Proh'bl tlon vote of 28,201 was n majority had It been coniiolldalfd. So wo 'should see what u fusion ticket can do this your In Vermont. In Pennsylvania there Is n fuslna hotwoon the bettor class of Kopubll cnus and tho Democrats. Twice since the war Pennsylvania has shaken off he !' p.il.lican mnchluo nud choxon u Democratic governor. In PJOt Penu sylvaula cast 1 ,'.'30,000 votes nnd of this the Democrats got 430,100 and tho Republican machine MC.S00. Ill both these States the Democrats are In a hopeless minority, 'except when the Republican nmchlne gets so had that the people rebel. That Is the case In both those States now. Things have gone to tho limit and the Republican voters have rebelled. The Democrats have Joined the reformers and success Is hoped for In both states. If tho elections go for the fusion ticket It will mean a decided differ ence In tho congressional deleg.itlons. oo CORPORATIONS AND CONSTITU TION. When our colstltutlonnl convention meets to frnmoMho fun- amenta law of our state-, they have boforo them an undertaking which Is worthy of oniy mo noniest' rimrncfersf1 wno knows what wrong may bo done by this liody. It rhny rest assured that tho oil corporations, tho railroads nnd tho trusUi will have their men there an they have had them In the lobbies nt Washington during this entire ses sion of emigre. It Is plain to bo seen that a great effort was mado to shape tho enabling act to suit the wishes of the coriKirnttons and fall ing to some extent at Washington, they will take up tbvtr next work at tho constitutional rnnventloniln each district they will put forth n man, and It will hi only by careful voting that men, prejudiced only for Okla homa, will bo elected. It Is sometimes hard to know the man who favors cor t'orntloiiB Ho comes In all disguises. He may oven denounce his very meas. ure, and then push It through, when elected. Tho honor to sit In a conven tion which shnpos tho constitution Is an honor which comes to few men and wjll be eagerly sought after. Candi dates will be plentiful. From nniong thoMj mon, who placo themselves bo foro tho people as worthy of this honor, a careful choice must bo made. We do not want it said that Oklahoma has n railroad constitution, Thero is oily ono way to prevent this, and that by thu votes of Oklahoma at tho polls. Vote for tho caudldato, with a look toward his honesty, Integrity and mor ality. . . . , A statu constitution Is a guarantee to tho people from the state of the m herent liberties and frdom.to whii h they hare become accuskimol and t check upon the future legislators ft that state. Thn bill of rights con tained In every state constitution alves the people protection and friat anteea their liberty from the fa-e In other words, the bill of rights d x-s the same for state taw. Ma the first thirteen amendments do for the people under national law. The other para of the constitution are taken tip wh article restricting, limiting or grant Ing powers which are necestar for government In that section of 'nt country. The ranting of this part l? the moat vulnerable for the railway lobbyists. Hare la where they will attempt to start the new state off with a serious handicap. She has aid ho Is capable of self-government an' the time ban come for them to show tho people of the world Oklatt--t- I lor not oo CONFEDERATE REUNION. Indian Territory Division U. C.
