THE Gold Bugs have degraded silver
through demonetization and other dis
criminating enactments and now they
iii > the degraded condition of silver as
an argument against the unlimited
coinage of this precious nfetal Xo
wonder the people listen to visionary
schemes when such financial despotism
is enacted into law
Free coinage of silver means the
addition to our circulating medium of
not less than u0000000 a year It will
probably go beyond that figure for tho
increased demand for and value of
silver will stimulate activity in the sil
verproducing regions and cause the
opening of new mines and add to the
production This increase of circulating
medium will more than keep pace with
the growth of trade

Mr Gossstt excuses himself and tho
alien land law by pointing to the law in

which he says is like the Texas law
Does it prohibit foreign loan compa

people of an old community like Wash

concentrated have as great need of
cheap foreign money as a new country
like Texas These are two questions
we should like to have Mr Gossett
take up and discuss
At Boniiam whore he acquired an
adventitious prominence by discussing
political measures with Dave Culber
son Harry Tracy proclaimed himself a
Democrat The gentleman s definition
of a Democrat would be worth having
It is shown that while he was in

TIME YET TO IVOISK
Fort Worth has met and is meeting
the financial depression as well as any
town in the country and much better
than some have met it Fort Worth
has done well but Fort Worth could
have done better if all the
people of Fort Worth had con
tributed their share to the efforts in
behalf of the town Men with large
landed possessions stood aloof and
marked up the price of iots and acres
made more valuable by the works of
others Had all the people worked
when work was effective the Albuquer
que would have supplemented the pack
ery and a fine hotel would have supple
mented the brewery and cotton mill
To give permanent value to lands some
thing else is needed besides watching
other people work and marking up
prices Fort Worth can do much more
than it has done if its people will all
get together but the day has passed
when a few men will do it all

Star brightest of the dazzling con

fair country rich in the fulless of her

This circular of the Missouri Kansas

climate and production of Texas and
distributed as it will be by hundreds of
thousands cannot fail to do the state
great good Evidently the Missouri
Kansas and Texas railroad does not
regard the railroad commission of
Texas with any aversion and the peo

of the state
WHY THEY MOCK IIIU
PostmasterGeneral Wanamaker had
considerable dealings in one way and an
other with the broken Keystone bank
That is evident from his own testimony
Ho lived on terms of the closest and
most confidential intimacy with Presi
dent Lucas who died in 1SSS Ho bor
rowed from the bank sums of money
much larger than it was authorized by
law to lend to any individual or firm
Mr Wanamaker appeared before the
investigating committee at Phila
delphia early in June to tell all ho knew
of his relationship with the bank It
will bo remembered that ho expressed
pleasure at the opportunity offered
for giving the committee such infor
mation as he possessed He stated that
ho was a depositor only and never
owned a share of the stock
Recently Mr Ycrdley the receiver
of the bank testified before the commis
sion that the books showed where stock
in the bank to the amount of 1625 shares
had been issued to and signed by John
Wanamaker on two different occasions
in 1SSG and 18S7 It also appeared that
a previous issue of 200 shares had been
made to him in 18S3 Other discrepan
cies were revealed in his testimony
concerning the fraudulent stock loaned
him by Lucas as collateral It is hard
for the public to reconcile these dis
closures with the good man s previous
assurances and statements He may be
able to do it and the wonder is that the
committee has not given him a chance
to do so as he has expressed a desire to
that effect From this brief summary
it will be clearly understood why the
comic papers and others are indulging
in such heartless gibes at the good
mans religion
DEMOCRACY AND THE ALLIANCE
When The Gazette writes in oppo
sition to the subtreasury and other
wild schemes of political and financial
quackery tho reform press cries out
that The Gazette is trying to dis
rupt the Alliance When TheGazette
pleads for the farmer as the under
dog in this financial and tariff strug
gle the rabid Democratic organs cry
out that The Gazette has gono over
to the Alliance subtreasuryites De
mocracy is the party of the people
This republic can not live with the
farmer degraded to the condition of a
serf Radical financial and tariff legis
lation have gradually impoverished
and degraded the farmer The farmer
is in revolt against conditions that op
press and quack havo availed them
selves of this revolt to offer deadly nos
trums to the people that will grow in
favor unless Democracy is true to its
mission and to its principles The pro
ducts of the farmer are the basis of all
life and the American farmer must
bo protected by American Democracy
against Republican class legislation
and against political charlatanry The
Alliance is doing and has done a great
work in educating the farmer and
arousing him True Democracy has
nothing to suffer or to feat from the
Alliance or from the politicasters who
havo fastened themselves onto the Al
liance
The Alliance has been and is an edu
cator and it has taught the farmer of
Kansas and Wisconsin as well as the
farmer of South Carolina aud Ten
nessee to revolt against the conditions
resulting from Republican class legisla
tion Seeing the inevitable result of
Alliance education political frauds and
adventurers have attached themselves
to tho Alliance either to exalt them
selves or to sell out the Alliance to tho
Republicans
Alliance education is Democratic
education for the Democracy has al
ways oaDosed what tho farmers North

S Struble exchairman of the house com
mittee on territories is in the city He
rioted with evident interest the vast
strides of improvement made by
the Territory during the last
two years in relation to the all im
portant question which is upon everybodys
tongue concerning tho ojieniug of the Sac
and Fox Pottowattamie and Iowa Indian
lands east of here Mr Struble said
to a Gazette reporter The lands
will probably be opened at any time
from the middle to the latter part of frop
teniber provided your people take such an
interest in the matter as to mako it improb
able that the department will pursue a
leisurely course 1 regard it of the utmost
importance on this and all other subjects
affecting the interests of your territory
that your people shall give active and
prompt attention to matters requiring
executive or departmental action You
cannot expect that your affairs will receive
that prompt and satisfactory attention
they should receive simply becauso you
feel and know that such ousrht to
be tho case because of the justUe
involved in the cause It should
be remembered that this is a vast
country with innumerablo interests The
press for consideration on the mind of the
president and his heads of departincutsand
with persistent actiuity of many sections to
secure tiieir richts your people will be
found at the middle or tail end of the pro
cession unless they pass vigorously
determidedly to the trout The ad
ministration is undoubtedly desirous of
doing right by this territory but
the pressure upon it by people interested in
their particular sections may result unin
tentional on the part of the president and
the secretary of the interior in delays
prejudicially to your people when bj vigor
ous and persistent policy jn your
part these prejudicial dclrys
may bo avoided I think that on the re
port being made by the allotiug agents on
the county east of yon a delegation should
be sent to Washingtos and there to remain
until the president issues his proclamation
ojiening these lands to settlement
In relation to the head of tie system of
speculating in soldiers declaratory state
mentsMr Strubie thought it would be wiso
to bring this matter to the ttention
of tho secretary of the interior or
the commissioner of the general land de
partment with a view to such an order to
the local laud ofllcers as will prevent sucli
schemes from being carried into offect Mr
Strublo did not think that without autlio
ity from the department the land ofilces
could bo closed
Mr Struble will leave tomorrow for the
Cluckisan country where he will spend a
few days looking over this fertile field It
is his desire to visit eery portion of the

Main street next door to the postoffice
Last Wednesday his little daughter and
Henrietta McElroy the child of a neigh

his little girl to inquire in regard to the
purchase of some chickens when he in
duced the little McElroy girl who is but
eleven years old to enter a small room in

rum to drink which she refused horribly
outraged her Her cries and sobs attracted
the attention of some passersby who ef
fectedan entrance to the shop but not un
til the brute had accomplished his fiendish
purpose He was at once arrested and
lodged in jail Could the colored populace
have secured hint it is safe to say a trial by
jury would never have been reached and
the courts would have been saved the
trouble and expense of a trial by Judge
Lynch Jordan came here from Henrietta
Tex and was out on a J1000 bond for an
adulterous charge with a woman at tnat
place which was the reason for his coming
to Ardmore After a careful hearing of
the testimony in tho case the accused was

Youthful Bride and Groom
Correspondence of the Gazette
ARrMOPE I T July 3 A quiet wedding
at Oklahoma City yesterday uniting for
lifp Royel and Miss Leyton of
Montague Tex is the ending of quite a ro
mantic love affair that is not uninteresting
and illustrates tho old adags that truelove
never runs smooth Last Tuesday there
came to Ardmore a youthfullooking couple
with wason and team and put up at one of
our wagon yards They were accompanied
by two older male friends It was soon
learned that tho party were matrimonially
inclined as the youthful couple at once ap
plied to Commissioner Mathews for a
license to wed when it was learned that
meeting with opposition at home they had
run away and driven overland from Mon
tague Tex to Ardmore to be made one
flesh Royel is the son of Parson Uoyel
a well known Christian minister of Mon
tague The girls people arc very strict
Methodists and for the difference in reltg
ious views young Royel says the old folks
opposed his suit and even refused him the
house Nothing daunted young Royel stole
the girl and accompanied by his brother
with Blake Odell a firm friend of the girl
as chaperon of the party left that night for
the Territory When questioned by the
commissioner it was learned the girl was
not eighteen years old and the prospective
groom soventecn and having no consent of
their parents the license was refused them
This was a new and unexpected difficulty
They soucht legal advice and were advised
to go to the Oklahoma country where mar
riage licenses me more easily obtained
There they were more fortunate and se
cured the necessary license aud had the
ceremony performed returning today hap

he chuckled and I heard him whisper to
his companion There ho is Hes im

of a finely adjusted hair trigger laugh For
the moment the comedian approached a
jest the very upproack fired my neighbors
gun of cachinnation The completion of
the jest with Its accompaniment of facia
aud bodily contortions incited loud squeals
of joy and other manifestations of delir
ious delight But when by accident a
witty line occurred the person seemed
bored and glum
On examining the audience I found thatsr
he was only one of many although he was
a most remarkable specimen of his kind
But what one word in our noble language
describss the kind I cudgeled my brains
in vain but after I had sent my boy to bed
I dropped into the club and my accom
plished young friend the publisher came
to my aid You must coin a word ha
said after tho manner of Louis Carroll
