The withdrawal of Mr Eendncklef a clear track for Gov Beckhara so the interest in the primary now centers in the minor offices It Is true that this paper favored the candidacy of Mr Hendricks but in so doing without prejudice to Mr Beckbam It was a case where the great bulk of Demo cpats so pronounced In their choice for Mr Beckbam to lead the fight and to become the Governor for a full term that induced his opponent to yield We accept the situation and will cheer fully support the nominees ON MY RETURN EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE In a letter written from Boston Tex I stated that others would follow but a change in our trip which brought us home fully two weeks earlier than I had anticipa ted ia the oqly reason why I fail ed to fulfil said promise We spent a few days in Dallas shaking hands with the boys from old Kentucky who gave us a hear ty welcome and made our stay there one of much pleasure So far as I could learn the Kentuok ians in Dallas are well pleased with that beautiful city and are making efforts in business that would yield good returns even in a less progressive community Sev eral of our town boys there are identified with the city govern ment and have impressed their worth and fitness to fill impor tant stations They go the Texas gait as it were but they are distinctly true Kentuokians with boundless hospitality and love for allwho still reside in the old com monwealth We took transportation to Ft Worth over the Interurban line connecting the two cities and made the trip in one anda half hours passing through one of the most beautiful And fertile sections of the State Ourstyoof one day in Fort Worth was pleasantly speut meeting several friends from Kentucky aud Virginia Mr Jo Wheat of this county fs one of the leading citizens of that thrifty Prairie City and is one of its most progressive prosperous businessmen His efforts in the business world have placed him in posses sion of the finest and most profit able office building in the Lone Star State where annual rental is a snug little fortune It was our pleasure to dine with his estima ble family in their beautiful home and receive the true old Kentucky hospitality that olingc to every true Kentuckian wheresoever diapered over the globe From that city we took passage over the bante Fe for Oklahoma City One day was pleasantly and we trust profitably spent in that the most remarkable city of the middle west It was there that we met people fromevery where People doing business backing up the most rapid devel mont of any town or country in which American capital and en terprise have sought to develop That town was fourteen years old the day we were there It has 30000 inhabitants with a rapid in crease in population and in enter prise that distinguishes it from any other western town in the race for power and prestige as the commer cial center of that great country From there we went to Guthrie theCapital of the Territory and the same age as Oklahoma City It is a beautiful town of eighteen or twenty thousand and making rapid strides for commercial supremacy in Guthrie aim n all other towns in which we stopped we shook hands with the boys from Kentucky We met Marvin Young from Cumberland county who holds a good position behind a counter and enjoys the good will of a large circle of western friends It is Guthrie that holds two of Adair counties young men Bob and John Grissom They are in the livery business up and abreast of the limos and no other firm or nJoysIbetter standing or m xes with s larger circle of friends They are p roBperbrifiind truly they aeServ it From Gtlt rerweheaded north snfl gut passing fhxtiiigh Ttfpek Wichita Kansas City and intoIMi inuriwhArA three days etlt with rclntivrs and rrt Mr GariiHtt stopped in Marshall to visit his wifes mother and fam ily while my father and myself visited his brother and son at Ful ton It was a stop over and enjoyed by all and gave us an oppor tunity to tee some of the fine lands of Central Missouri Meeting at Mexico Mo we went to St Louis overthe Warbash where a tremendous crowd had gathered to witness the dedication of the Worlds Fair buildings and to meet Teddy and Grover We did not arrive there in time to see the parade and not having any de sire totake tea with the distinguished visitors to that city we board ed a Louisville and Henderson train which bronght us back to the Old Commonwealth feeling glad that we were safe in a land where the meadow grasses grow and pure fresh sparkling waters flow A recapitulation In my judg ment Dallaas is one of the neatest and most attractive cities for a home in the West Oklahoma City the most metropolitan and Lionlike aggressive and progressive municipality in all that fertile region and Fort Worth pulling a strong second The broad fertile prairie of Texas hemmed in by the horizon only in every direction are beautiful inviting and attract ive The rich bottoms and lowlands of the Indian Territory skirt ed by strips of stubby timber mark it as a country of great pos sibilities The fertile and varied lands of Oklahoma hold within them productive powers unsurpassed by any other region Kansas to the north defies all other States in the universe to produce more wheat or to out measure it in other agricultural products but in my judgment Central Missouri has more of the goodand less of the disagreeable in climate resources and product ive powers than any other State west of the Mississippi Its streams are clear and sparkling its praries broad and fertile and climate a twinn brother to the healthgiving breezes of our own beloved Kentucky It is there the earth is wrapped in a luxurant coat of bluegrass where fine stockof every description has crowded out the scrub It is second only toone spot on earth

State Superintendent of Insurance under Governor Black has been indulging in politis cal prophecy which coming from a politician of long experience and intimate knowledge of inside mat ters of the republican party is ofI considerable significance at thisI other things Mr Payn predicts that Mayor LQW of New York will be renominated and de feated by at leEst 100090 and that President Roosevelt will be renominated and will also lose New York state by over 100000 votes The Telegram adds that Payn is a shrewd and farseeing politician and does not rashly form political judgment The Platt Odell feud has effect ually disrupted the republican party in New York state and there is no possible common ground upon which the waring factions can bo brought together in the fall of 1904 with Roosevelt as the presidential nominee The Platt machine regards the occu pant of the white house as its enemy and its secret enmity toward him is becoming more outspoken as the fight for supremacy between the governor and senator prog resses It is impossible for Presi dent Roosevelt to hold his politi cal fortunes aloof from the New York quarrel and it is difficult to see how he can eiiay the folepf peacemaker in the interest of his political fortunes In addition the glamour of San Juan hill has pretty well worn off in Now York state and republican politics there has readjusted itself to the old machine basis It is unlikely that the populace will be stirred by any brass band enthusi asm from whioh Roosevelt as a candidate can profit next year and with a dual machine he will surely have an uphill pull to get out of the state with a majority Other republican politicians than Mr Payn are coolly figuring out defeat for him Mr Roosevelt as- a civilian and sometime mugwump is far from a popular idol of the republicans of the Empire State Indeed Mr Roosevelt is far from secure in his strength east of Alleghenies and it is going to tak more than cowpunching states to save his baconAtlanta Cousti tution The State candidates are now approaching tho part of the track known as the home stretch All of them excepting Hon R J Brockinridge and Hon John K Hndricks for Governor have founded into it and are coming down to the wire whith whip and spur in full action Owing to the fact that a primary is somewhat different from a convention new tactics must be employed and i takes a little guessing to tell just what to do under the circum eta ces Under the convention system the candidate came to the county seat and picked out a few of the knowing politicians with whom he did his conferring and upiii whose efforts he based hie hopes ot election knowing that it requires only a man or two in the right place to carry the day But now he must see tiie voter and he mu t depend upon the decision of ouch individual member of the party There is no ono Who mom fuliy realizes than sides the Candi dsu that a primary gets nearer to the people and brings outan ex pre sion of preference from the people and not from tho leaders In other words he must be the choice of the many and ifot of the fewLarue Herald Battleships are expensive toys The bursting ofI big gun onJi e Iowa involveda
