Governor Frnntz's Annual Report Shown. The annual report of Governor Frank Frantz of Oklahoma Is the best advertisement of this part of the new btato that over appeared. It contains no recommendations and asks no favors. Everything is booming, and wonderful progress is shown in all linos of indus try. . No jarring note is found in the on tiro 1G0 pages of tho printed report. Tho question of education, which is etillu burning issuo in IndianTcrritory, is giving Oklahoma no concern save that tlm 3,100,876 acres set aside for school and other purposes may be hard to dispose of most proiltably. Its ap proximate valud now is given as $29, 000,000 by Governor Frantz, and as sures the coming generation of the new state ample educational facilities. In addition to the land thus reserved, eongrcsB made a cash donation of $0, 000,000 in tho statehood bill, in lieu of the commou school lands in Indian Territory. Tho report contains sub reports from the heads of the various schools in Oklahoma, frOm the State Agricultural and Mechanical college down. An abundance of common schools, both In tho towns and in rural com munities, is shown by the report,while much space is given to the progress of education In the various higher schools and colleges. The following extract is taken from a chapter in Oklahoma agriculture: "From a very meager beginning in 1881), we have increased in population u until wo liuvo almost 1,000,000 people In Oklahoma happy, prosperous, con tented, peaccablo, wide-awake, the most progressive element from all tho states. Those who caino here in tho early days, an those who have come here sineo, came to establish homes. "Oklahoma is pre-eminently a land of homes and families. True to the Oklahoma spirit, we aro now ready to put our onergles to tho work to eclipse all previous record-breaking. "So rapidly do conditions chango here that agricultural statistics be come old in a few weeks. The produc tive wealth of Oklahoma soil has in ureased' by leaps and bounds from prarie hay in 1880, to inoludo all of the groat farm productions of both the north and tho south, tho aggregate value of which in tho year 11)05 was over $1,000,000. It is conservatively estimated that this high record will bo exceeded in 1900 by not less than $2&,000,000 'No class of settlers In Oklahoma have prospered to a greater degree than the farmers, a majority of whom o-.uno hore with little or no means be yond that of a willingnoss to work Hiid endure hardship for the timo necessary to subdue tho sod and grow a crop. Comfortable and, in some instances, palitial homes havo supplanted the dugout and temporary improvements." This is a fair samnlo of tho encour aging und attractive eharactorof the report, which, by tho way, is a com pilation of tho reports of many oxperts in their particular lines of work. Of the livestock industry of Okla homa the report says : "Some very effective argumonts can be found in comparing our wealth of livestock with that of some of the old er commonwealths, which havo for years boon recognized as livestock pro ducers of no mean caliber. Infant Oklahoma exceeds in valuo of livestock that of Washington by $01,000,000, that of Oregon by $50,000,000, Colorado by $42,000,000, Arkansas by $80,000,000, Tennessee by $21,000,000, South Dakota by $10,000,000. It exceeds by $20,000, 000 the combined value of tho livestock embraced in Utah, Nevada and Idaho." On January 1, 1000, tho department of agriculture issued a statement giv ing the number and value of livestock t by states tho valuo of Oklahoma's an imals being placod at $91,010,723, which has increased very considerably since. An account of the healthfulncss of Oklahoma's climate covers several pages, tho superintendents of publio health for various counties reporting a lets amount of sickness than last year, and no epidemics. A brief history of the territory is giv en in the report, with a detailed ac count of the arduous fight for state hood. The public and private credit of tho that Fit More t rF. P. S. During my absence Mr. C H. Tyler an experienced Registered Pharmacist have charge of the drug department, territory Is declared to bo the best no public bond or security of any kind is sued by tho torritory or any .municipal ity having ever boar, repudiated, nor tho interest defaulted. In fact, school warrants are said to sell at a premium in tha east. To cap tho climax, tho report an nounces that Oklahoma will be ade quately represented at tho Jamestown exposition, which will open about May 1, 1007. This in spite of tho fact that the new state legislature will not have been organized, and thoreforo In the absoneo of a legislature appropriation. This bit of enterprise will do more for Oklahoma than its best friends over hopo. Stato Capital. ' Notice to Foreigners . Proceeduro required of applicants for admission to citizonship.

I I The Roosevelt Third Term National League . Tho Roosevelt third term league, re cently organized at Chicago, claims tho people should chooso their chief exec utive regardless of his personal prero gatives. The people know Roosevelt and can trust lum, ho is tho peoples' choice and tho only one at tho present time. Following from tho Chicago Tribuno gives us an idea of tho league's plans. "It is not our purpose to appeal to politicians. In fact, wo don't want any of them. It is to bo a matter which is to como directly from tho people., and for myself I don't care whothor President Uoosovolt likes it or not. To nw mind he has nothing to say about it. He is the only man in whom tho people havo absolute and implicit confidiMoo. Wo know ho is honest; his actions have demonstrated it beyond cavil." The following from tho league plutform may be of interest: "Wo havo como upon days in our social and political lifo, fermenting with distrust and requiring firm con trol." "To tho people irrespective of party lines is duo credit that their President, today, is Thiodoro Rooaovolt. A new era of real freedom and vitality in our institutions of government and politics was demanded, and thoy wisely saw in him a mean3 to attain it- "So valiantly and wholeheartedly, has this man reflected tho wishes of tho people, that his personality has entered into and beoomo n part or every department or our national lire. So closoly woven is this bor.d between tho President and tho peoph Jf that ho has become to them a nuhli- 0 necessity, an essential part of thi ngS in the social ami political fabric. Therefore, Style Cuts hats wil Theodore Roosevelt is not only the " logical candidate for nomination, but manifestly is the only logical presi dent for tho people." "We are not unmindful of the fact that Theodoro Roosevelt himself de clared in 1004, that "under no circum stances would ho be a candidate for, or, would he accept another nomina tion." "We challenge, however, his right to refuse to accopt the Presidency of tho United States for a third term, in the face of the people's demand, es pecially at a time when so many under takings of tho highest importance have been brought about and set in motion by him and so subject them to the danger of an untried and unproved successor. "Wo further hold, that in point of fact his re-election in 1008 would not constitute a third term. He has been elected to tho Presidency but once. Inasmuch, however, aB tho issuo has boon so generally spoken of as a Third Term, the Leaguo has adopted the titlo. Pointers to Delegates .
