east their votes with the miners.
When the labor-haters found that
their campaign was in danger, at
the last minute on the night before
election they issued circulars print-
ed in dark green and distributed in
ai\ the towns denying that the dem-
ocratic ticket was being supported
by funds from the chamber of com-
merce. The circular stated that all
of the money raised by the cham-
ber's solicitors was being used by
Attorney General Brundage for the
prosecution of the miners.
But the denials tame too late.
The dark green changed to dark
brown for the chamber represen-
tatives when they woke up on the
morning after election to find that
the miners had stood shoulder to

political beliefs and administered

unionism in the history of William-
Of the election and its signifi

of the Illinois Mine Workers has
this to say:
while the new method might be a
success in Florida, I doubt if, for
Oklahoma, it would be any im-
provement over methods now in
"His plan, as I understand it, is
to remove the first squares from
the plants, sometimes in June, and
thereby kill or starve out the first
crop of weevils.
I'm afraid Oklahoma planters
wouldnt' raise much cotton If they
picked off the early squares, for
Oklahoma has to depend on early
maturing cotton to get a crop. Fur-
thermore, many weevils in Okla-
homa continue to remain active,
feeding upon cotton plants, for pe-
riods of from 30 to 90 days before
retiring to the square to deposit
their eggs. So, the only way to kill
off anything like all the over-win-
tering weevils would be to accom-
pany the removal of squares with
poisoning. The two processes to-
gether would be too expensive for
"I think Oklahoma farmers ought
to be warned not to accept too
readily the new Florida idea and,
so, postpone until spring the fight
