President Roosevelt at 10:16 o'clock this morning signed the Proclamation admitting the territories cf Oklahoma and Indian Territory jointly as one of th: American States.

The pen will be deposited with the Oklahoma His torical Society. Guthrie, Okla., Nov. 16 A message was reoeived by Governor Haskell at his rooms at the Royal hotel at 0:20 this morning announcing that President Roosevelt signed the statehood proclamation admitting Oklahoma to the Union at 10:10 (eastern time) this morning. The word spread like wildfire, and it was but a few moments before pandemonium reigned supreme. Every bell in the city rang out the glad tidings, scores of factory whistles screamed piercing blasts of overflowing joy, and the hotel lobbies were filled to overflowing by cheering men. Guns were fired, gianferackers exploded and the air was rent with the general gladness.

Niblack, qditor of the Guthrie Leader, then administered the oath of office to Governor Haskell and the crowd rent the air with cheers for Okla homa's first governor. Governor Haskell then delivered his inaugural address which occupied about t)iirty minutes and held the immense throng's close at. tention until the very close. J. D. Burke, chairman of the board of county commissioners of Logan county then administered the oath of office to the other state officials.

Hatfield, commissioner from the 3d district, brought somo fine spec imens of white Bermuda onions in from the farm Saturday. This offiec has a sample. Mr. Hatfield says ho produced about fifteen bushels of that variety all fine largo onions from u'unit n half pound af seed. If Mr. Hatfield serves the county as successfully as he tills that fine farm of his, there'll bo no room for complaint from his constitu ents, and we say lie will. B. C. Lewis made his usual trip to Beaver tho past Saturday but some way he was togged up just a bit more and was mot by tho glad hand of his many friends. B.

McFarland are the parents of a fine son born to them Mouday the I8j.li Inst. , . which was held Saturday. Mr. Lewis is among the few, very few, Republi- . cans who will hang out at tho court house this term nnd the only Republi can member of the Honorable Board of County Commissioners, but he is big enough and broad-minded enough to hold his Democratic 'jolleaguea level and, by-the-way, they are all pretty gpod fellows anyway. Wo predict ono of the fuirest administrations that Beaver County has ever enjoyed. Subscribe for THE HEkALD. The Old and the New. A change has taken place at the Court House. Those who Lave bcrved the county the past three yeairi have stepped down and out and the officers- elect have stepped in to direct the des. tinies of this commonwealth for the same length of time. In the out-going officers Beaver coun ty loses many pains taking officials and those who have devoted their best en ergies to the benefit of the county. On the other hand, those who have stepped into the harness are just as anxious to serve the whole people with out fear or favor. The majority of the incoming officers are of the Democratic persuasion but politics is not the order of thedny now. Election is passed, politics must take a back seat and each ollicer takes his oatli of office to serve tho people without prejudice or partiulity. Wo have eve ry reason to believe each officer will fu'fill tiiat obligation and give us n good clean administration With that belief in mind und being personally ac quainted witli the present regime of ollicers wo extend greetings to them and recommend them to our readers as honorable and upright mid worthy of your every confidence. G. C Maphet, commissioner from tho 1st district, was up to bo initiated into his new office Saturday. He took all the degrees and is now fully qualified to look uftor Beaver county's interests for some time to come. We have known of Mr. Maphet for yearn but un til this time had never hud the pleas ure of a personal acquaintance. Wo find him a very pleasant and agreeable gentleman and one who, though even u Democrat, will give Beaver county "a squaro deal." Fact is, his polities is all that Is wrong. He is fully uware of the needs and possibilities of the coun ty and there is no doubt but that his administration will be a good one. Those who have known him for years speak of him as aconbclentlous, w11 Program .
