era and laborers at Shawnee, you
must repudiate him no matter what
kind of a platform Is adopted by the
democrat* at their state. convention.
Let us consider the platform as it
appears on the front pase of the
Daily Oklahoman of August 9, which
you object to, the same page your
picture appears announcing you aie
quitting the ticket. Let us first take
the preamble to the platform, which
is as follows:
"To relieve the distressed con-
dition of the farmers and all
other laboring people of Oklaho-
ma. on whose welfare the pros-
perity of our entire state de-
pends. and to make the state gov-
ernment more responsive to the
wishes and well being of the peo-
ple, the Farmer-Labor Recon-
struction League appeals to all
voters, irrespective of party, to
support the candidates indorsed
by this convention pledged to the
carrying out of the following
program."
Nothing I "democratic.
What is undemocratic about the
preamble? To rae, it sounds like
democracy.
Let us consider the first paragraph
which is as follows:
"We believe the disclosures
show that the bank guarantee
fund and assets have been looted
and that there has been graft in
other departments of state, and
we demand prosecution to the
limit of the bandits, whether
public officials or private citi-
zens."
What is undemocratic about this?
Certainly a man who has held the
exalted positiou of attorney general
of this state does not believe it un-
democratic to prosecute if any tflere
he either public or private citlsens
who have misappropriated public
lunds. You may not know of any
that are guilty but it no funds have
been ^unappropriated there is no one
lo prosecute. But as an honest citi-
zen you cannot object to the guilty
being prosecuted.
Let us lake the second paragraph:
"2. We favor laws: To squeeze
iho water from stock of all public
corporations and reduce the rates
• linruftl foi light and other
utility plants, and for the slate
to take over such as the Oklaho-
ma Natural Gas company to the
t nd that extortionate rates may
be prohibited which have hereto-
fore grown out of or been made
possible by fraudulent valuation
of such companies."
Squeeze Out "Water.**
Is it undemocratic to squeeze the
watered stock from all public cor-
porations, in order to reduce the
costs of gas, lights and other public
necessities? I have read democratic
platforms for over twenty years and
they all advocate the squeezing of
watered stock from public corpora-
tions. 1 am not saying that these
corporations have their stock water-
ed. but I say to you. and any other
democrat or good citizen the prin-
ciple enunciated, has been advocated
in every democratic platform for
years. Let us see the next portion
of the paragraph: "To take over
such as the Oklahoma Natural Gas
company TO THE END THAT EX-
TORTIONATE RATES MAY BE
PROHIBITED WHICH HAVE
HERETOFORE BEEN CHARGED OR
MADE POSSIBLE BY FRAUDU-
LENT VALUATIONS OF THE COM-
PANY." What do you find undemo-
cratic in that paragraph? This para-
graph does not mean the property
should be confiscated, but only means
the state shall do whatever is neces-
sary to prevent extortionate rates. I
must not be understood to say that
the rates are extortionate, or that
they are unfair, but if they are un-
fair and excessive, it provides the
state shall regulate the same to the
extent that the public be protected.
Is that not in accordance with the
democratic principle adopted and
promulgated by giving the corpora-
tion commission power to regulate
and fix rates. The principle an-
nounced is not undemocratic.
Let us take the third paragraph:
"3. Covering the grading and
marketing of farming products
for the protection of the farmer
and consumer, including an anti-
discrimination law in both buy-
ing and selling; and the estab-
lishment of warehouses, ele-
vators. mills and the like where
necessary, to protect the people
• against oppressive monopolies,
and an amendment to the co-op-
erative law, including "banking."
larm Products Grading.
It is not undemocratic to advocate
the grading and marketing of farm
products, for the protection of the
farmer. Is it undemocratic to ad-
vocate a law against discrimination?
Is it undemocratic to advocate the
establishment of a ware house. ele-
vntor and mills "WHERE NECES-
SARY TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE
AGAINST OPPRESSIVE MONOP-
OLIES. The last democratic sen-
ate passed a warehouse bill and as
I understand It was killed in the
house. So whether you agree with
qll trie piankn, it cannot be sail to l o
t.ndcinocrat:.c. It aiso provides for
an amendment to the co-operitlve
law t > include banking. If then is
any objection to this paragraph by
any one, It must bt Hie amendment
to the co-operative law to include
banking. n hat is only a minor de-
tail but the to operative law is net
undemocratic. Whether It should
Include banking, I om not fully ad-
vised. but the gee era 1 principle
corrccl. If it is necessary to pro-
tect the people against oppressive
monopolies, you would not contend
that it would be undemocratic to es-
tablish a warehouse, elevator or
mills for that purpose. What Is in
this paragraph that is so repulsive
to a man who has received $45,000
for seven years' salary to cause him
to repudiate an organization that
made it possible for him to receive
Ihe money'"
The fourth paragraph is as fol-
lows :
"L To relieve tenantry on
the farm and in the city by plac-
' ing the credit of the state bank
of an effective home ownership
law."
We have already a home owner-
ship law enacted, passed by a demo-
cratic legislature, and signed by a
democratic governor, and it has
never been declared to bo undemo-
cratic, nor did you refuse to draw
your salary as a democrat, because
the democrats enacted said law.
Fetor* State Itank.
The fifth paragraph is as follows:
'5. To establish a state bank
which shall be a depository of
the funds of the state and its
subdivisions."
1 am not sure that I am in
favor of this provision, establish-
ing a state bank. If a bank
could be established without be-
ing looted, it would be a good
thing for the people. The prin-
ciple Is correct, whether it could
he properly executed, might be
a question that is not free from
doubt. It might be that a board
could be established to regulate
the deposit of state money in
banks, and the amount of inter-
est the bank should receive in
re-loaning the same, and the
same result reached. But no
man should leave the party even
should he disagree with this one
plank, especially, when we think
of how the republican party
adopted a plank two years ago,
that satisfied the people that
was for the league of uations
any also those against it.
The sixth paragraph is as fol-
lows:
"6. To exempt from taxation
heads of families on improve-
ments to the amount of $1,000
on farms and in city homes,
from equipment, implements and
tools."
The democratic party has al-
ways been in favor of liberal ex-
emptions. We now have an ex-
emption of $100 so the principle
is right. If the people of the
state desire such, the exemption
increased to that amount no^one
should quit the state or party
for that reason. Whether ray
taxes would be higher or lower,
I do nut know, and I am sure
what it would mean to you
would be infinltismal. I under-
stand ypur native state of Ten-
nessee has such a law. 1 am not
sure whether the law could be
enacted under our constitution,
but there is no undemocratic
principle involved.
Ohio System Advocated.
The seventh paragraph is as fol-
lows :
"To amend the workmen's
compensation law, providing In-
surance hnd other features in
line with the Ohio law; and de-
manding labor laws for women
and children and providing a
special attorney to enforce the
same; limiting the issuance of
injunctions; providing for the
union label on state printing; a
W limit law; effective factory
and railroad inspection for the
promotion of Bafety of workers
and patrons."
Certainly no great objection can
be made to this paragraph. The
democrats of this state have already
provided for a workmen's compensa-
tion law, whether It should be
amended. I do not know, but the
principle involved is correct.
The eighth paragraph is as fol-
lows:
"8. Amending the Constitution
so as to tax the gross earnings
of public service corporations,
the proceeds to go to the com-
mon schools and to apply on
soldier bonus."
This provides for an amendment
of the Constitution which must be
by vote of the people. If the people
see fit to amend the Constitution
which they must do by their vote I
will not leave the state, nor desert a
party who advocated such an amend-
ment. It does not bind the members
of the party to vote for the amend-
ment. it cannot become a law unless
the people of the state by their vote
adopt it.
The ninth paragraph is as follows:
"To eliminate profiteering be-
tween coal, gas. light and other
similar public necessities."
Certainly it is not undemocratic
to advocate the elimination of profi-
teering on public necessities. Did
you ever hear of the democrats ad-
vocating profiteering, so why should
any one quit the party because it
advocated the elimination of profi-
teering?
The tenth paragraph is as follows:
"10. Supporlng all state insti-
tutions in the interest of popular
education, and at least seven
months' term for all common
schools."
There Is nothing undemocratic in
this paragraph and I know of nothing
that any honest citizen can object to.
The eleventh paragraph is as fol-
lows :
"11. Listing of all personal
property, extra expenses, to be
paid by property owner."
This is not undemocratic. The
democrats enacted a tax ferret law,
and instead of the people paying the
tax ferret, it would place the burden
upon the man whose property was
escaping: the taxation. The force and
effect of the same cannot be Injuri-
ous. and it might be beneficial. There
is no great vital issue involved that
is undemocratic.
The twelfth paragraph is as fol-
lows :
"12. Preventing tax dodgers
from buying in their lands, per-
sonally or through dummies for
any amount less than total taxes
| plus expense of sale to county."
J This section is not undemocratic.
I The democratic party never advocates
any law to protect tax dodgers.
The thirteenth paragraph is as fol-
low g :
"13. We demand that the state
j publish text books and sell them
to the school districts at cost and
that the school districts furnish
them to the pupils free.''
Would Abolish Book Trust*
This principle is not undemocratic,
and I doubt if you can find any per-
son running either upon the demo-
cratic or republican ticket that
would tell you that they were against
this plank. It would certainly do
away with the book trust and prevent
the changing of books every few
years.
The fourteenth paragraph is as
follows:
"14. We favor a definite
policy fixed by law for the con-

as follows

Certainly no one would condemn
such a plank as this.
Section sixteen is as follow h:
"16. We favor the principles
of the recall."
This is not a new question, and
has been advocated time and again j
and no man has ever left the party j

PECAN CROP
IS BETTER
tkat every candidate on the. demo-
cratic ticket has given you their
loyal support in the past. They nre
now asking that you reciprocate. My
faith in you is either strengthened or
shattered upon your answer. You
cannot say there is any great prin-
ciple in the platform that is wrong.
There is nothing in the platform that
is undemocratic. There may he a
few planks that you disagree with,
still if the majority of the democrats
of this state believe that they are
proper, then you should be the last
one to shirk your duty. The fact that
you have been a state official does
not mean that you are burdened with
the responsibility of writing the
democratic platform, or that It must
be made to satisfy every desire that
you entertain. The planks request-
ed by the farmers and laborers will
not be the only planks In the plat-
form, hut in principle they are not
undemocratic, no matter who wrote
them.
Had we not been associated togeth-
er as the official family of the Demo-
cratic party, I would not take the lib-
erty of writing you.
Yours very truly,

The condition of the pecan crop in
Oklahoma Is 2<j per cent better than
lor the same time a year ago, ac-
cording to a report made Mouday by
the slate board of agriculture.
The condition for Oklahoma was 76
per cent as compared to 5U per cent
a year ago and 55 per cent two years
ago. A bumper crop Is In prospect,
according to the report. The condi-
tion for the United States on August
1 was 63.4 per cent of normal as
compared with 56.3 last year.
"The number of trees of hearing
age in the United States shows an
increase of 1.7 per cent over the
number a year ago. Of these trees
45.2 per cent are not hearing this
year, as contrasted with 37.1 per cent
not bearing last year. In Texas the
excessive rains during pollenation
interfered seriously with fertiliza-
tion, with a resulting small set of
nuts. Considerable damage has also
been done by the weevil and' case cn>~
hearer. There has been an unusual No l ulftuia bay, ion
premature dropping of fruit. The No. • atiatia i«a>, ion
trade anticipates a crop under 100 No. I praina na>, u,w

New Record Is Made
in Night Flying
the first of September.
"I am extending the time limit on
account of the flnanical straights
that the county is in. I would rath-
er extend the time limit than listen
to the personal appeals of each in-
dividual." Ryan declared. "The peo-
ple, farmers and business men are In
a bad shape financially and I think
It would be a bad thing to add the
penalty at this time. Many elements
enter into the situation, first two
hanks failures have hurt many peo-
ple. The failure of the First State
Rank at Edmond hit many farmers so
hard that the state banking board
wrote me asking that I extend the
time limit on taxes."
The total taxes due in Oklahoma
county for the year of 1921*is $4,353.-
040.74; of this amount $2,790,923.68
has been collected. Ten per cent of
the total Is always figured as uncol-
lectable by state and county officials.
according to Ryan, und this will
amount to $435,304.07. This leaves
$1,127,713.06 to he collected, which is
a very good showing, taking into con-
sideration the Reneral financial
standing of business and farmers,
Ryan declared.
