There we ittand and tlmro wo alinll contiiitio to

current e.vcntn ot our Onto.
Thcro la no gulnHaylns the fact tlutt Downing

Washington about I la flnRc.ru for the past sev

atrcct'a clicstnuta out of tho fire, but wo liavo
walked Into baited Imps nnd been tho victims
ot tho cheapest nnd tnottt tiuostlonablo prac
tices at thn hand of tho KtiKllsh Imperialists.
Thcso fuels oro coming to light with great
rapidity thcso days. At least u. part ot our gov
ernment already realises that England, in thu
natno of a fine altruism, has steadily been tak
ing advantage of the material Interests of
America; and In tho cable hearings now bolng
conducted at Washington Amorlcan nationalists
are not hesitating to speak their sentiments nnd
prefer their charges.
If Germany committed crimes against our
nationhood in tho things nho practlcod, nnd sho
unquestionably did, what" In to bo said of Drltaln
controlling the cableti nnd opening tho com
munications of our nutlonnlH for tho purpose of
taking advantage of them In buslncs transac
tions with other nations?
And what ot tho arbitrary tiso she Is mnlUni;
of tho mandutory system under which despotic
control was glvon her of vast stretches of tho
earth's most productive stirfuce, largely, tut it
again be said In shame, by tho supremo repre
sentative of our own nation.
H Is not surprising, thorofote, that an open 1
break lias at last occurred between American
oil men and tho oil imperialists of thn llrltlsli
aaplre. Tho wonder Is that tho opei. breaK
liaa been so long delayed; a fact that U attrib
utable only to tho lamentablo additional fact
that our own foreign offlco has been the Im
perialist's greatest ndvocato and aid.
N mailer how pleasing It was to view thn
cordiality existing between thu two countries for
a time, It could never havo been oxpocted to
continue, because it was constructed on tho
menacing foundation of English hypocrisy and.
Imperialistic intentions, which, in their realiza
tion meant the subjugation of tho Unlled mates.
From tho first England has viewed tho rapid
rise of tho United States in commerco and fl
nanco and world-lnflu'enco with the greatest
Jealousy, and it has been tho novcr-lost-slght-of
aim of her stutcsmcn to at nil costs regain her
old-time hegemony of tho world.
It Is Inuvllublo that Amcrlcnn-Bngllsh rela

Just what has been done, mid what Is contem

Pur Instance, think or this stute expending
1S7.00H to gindiiiilo 10 pupils! That Is but
ono ease. Thn cause of education tins been al
most discredited by pork-barrel Icglslatum,
poil-l,nrrel politicians and pork-barrel towns.
A splendid Idea has been seized on to cloak
tho giafter mid tho corrupllonlst. Thu peoplo
havo not been benefited In their latld.lldfl de.
slio lo placo education within tho easy reach ot
their children. (Julio the contrary. Their sub
stantial Inleiests aro now threatened by a sys
tem of ntatc-luHtltutlon-i.ontrollcd legislators
who almost dominate tho legislature.
If a halt Is ever to be culled It must lie called
now, Tho statu hospital matter Is another caso
directly In point, A splendid theory and senti
ment lm been seized on to do scrvlco for thu
cm ruptlonlsts and pork-barrel statesmen. Wo
do not think It will succeed. Wo know that It
should not. I 'or tho plan fulls utterly lo do
what It Is being offered for thn speedy umel
lorntlon of tho sick and disabled ex-sorvlcn men.
Already physicians with experience in thn
Into war, and leaders who understand tho con
ditions to lie met, are cnijdmnnlng It unspar
ingly, and thcro Is a substantial movement on
among tho ex-servlcn men themselves to havo
tho efforts of their organization wisely directed
to where relief can bn expected .to como from.
T'ho theory of state constructed hospitals, to
bo leased and opnrntcd by tho federal govern
ment, has been completely exploded. It Man
Uttorly failed. As an ex-offlccr of tho medical
corps In I ho Into war wrote The World, congress
Is thu place to get Immcdluto relief for the sick
and suffering ex-servlco men.
Tho legislature which convenes in Junuury
could not do better than create a hoard com
posed of ablo men free from all partisan taint
for thn purpose ot making mi Impartial survey
of the so-called stuto Institutions with recom
mendation to tho next session regarding con-i-oll-Jallor.s,
abclir.hm'entri and general improve
ments. Such a board would need to bo abovo
reproach In personnel commanding tho pub
lic confldonco that It would bo guided only, by
tho Just Interests of thu public and In no In
Btunco Influenced by locul sentlmonl.
In tho meantime, 'thn legislature should re
frain from making a single building appropria
tion, contenting itsolt with appropriating only
funds sufficient for mulutetianco needs. And
In other Instances It should abolish with a ruth
less hand. Oklahoma has Just us much use 'for
ft flro marshal as It has for another housn In
tho legislature. It has Just as much use for
nn Insuranco board. And various other and
useless dcpnrfWntn and Institutions.
Thero Is not a successful business man in the

on a sound business basis, would not flrBt of

this legislature, fresh from tho peoplo and
chastened, regardless of imrtlsanlsm, to seek
diligently to crystollzn Into legislation those
things which every member knows tho peoplo
want anil deserve.

Think not that I would play thu Judge

Demand a cruel fen.

And plnd along on mine,
And let him have his little soy
And live to his dcsUu;
Hut I would set that man apart
And strew his way with stones
Who, shaking hands, believes It smart
Almost to crush my bones.

And as I meet them, now nnd then,
Hut very few I hale.

There's some excuso for freakish dress,
For boastful men and proud;
Though they dlctiirh nie, moro or less,

Nor would I hero condemn the man
Who stoops to foolish things,

By JANE PHELPS
Told at Oklahoma City

Whon I asked Mr. Frederick what
hu thought of Hlancho Orton my
heart seemed to almost stop beating
so anxiously did I await his reply.
Would ho think that she und Nell?
"Mrs. Orton Is hard up. Sho Is
tho kind of women wo sen occasion

thoughts. "Sho U hard ns nails, too
clover to be wicked, knowing sho is
not, caring nothing what people say
at leust I Judgu sho docs not."
"No, sho never did Even when
Mr. Orton was-ullve. Hut then peo
plo simply smiled at her actions;
imw they talk."
"I see; VI know very little ot so
ciety folks. I know a good woman
when I sco her, nnd nn honest man.
I know, too, a clover woman llko this
Mrs. )rton. How long have your
husbnnd and his friends been going
"A long time nearly six or eight
months. Ever since 1 refused to en

"That's n question I can't answer.
You certainly could not entertain

allowed a few llko Scott to como

ever. And It Is too late lo think of
that. 1 would rather losn every dol

making free with those peoplo 1 was

"You urn so good to me, X don't
seo why?" 1 murmured, ull tho time
knowing why that ho cared for me.
Then before ho could answer my
tactics question I usked another:
"How can Blanche Orton endure

"Republlcun meetings nowadays
rnrnind me of tho old times," said
Halley Springs, republican commit
teeman from Choctaw county and
who always officiated as thu Kiaml
tla county representative In the
Indlnn Territory days. "For several
years It required a warrant to S'J
enough republicans together to. at
tend to the official duty of keeflns
tho party together. Since the b
vembcr election republicans hae
been attending everything, and I n
sorry to say thero are thoso already
anxious to havo two or threo repub
lican parties. Wo have hard enoufn
time keeping ono to thn front and
havo to get a lot of help from dem
ocrats now to win." .
