Consideration in convention of tlio
salaries of the judge* of the proposed
courts brought ont the old sophistries
of argument about the adequate salar-
ies of officials; arguments that tend to
the final conclusion that a judge should
receive a salary larger than the loot of
any critnnal that may be brought be-
The false criterion by which human
abilities are judged was illustrated by
argument gravtlv ottered, that where-
as, manv lawveis realize or SlO.t'uO
yearly, a $3001) judge m'ght he met hy
a st ro nger mi nil i 11 the high priccd law-
yer before him ; thus estimating all hu-
itian abiTlity by the sularv secured.
The fact is, learning, ability, honesty
und integrity—the qualities that go to
make a good judge, can not be reduced
To a quotable figure and be priced on
I he market at so much per.
The best services humanity has ever
received has been rendered witout ,i
thought of salary.
Estimate a man bv his salary will
you? Admiral 1 ogo gets ,> thousand a
year and Chauncey Depew a hundred.
How much a year did John Drown get>
Washington got his -'xpenses paid.
What was the yearly income of Robert
Durns or John Milton . \\ hat was the
commercial rating of Martin Luther."
What was there in it for Saints I'eter
ntid Daul, the winings of Socrates or
the salary of Jesus Christ?
The chances are more than even that
the public will get better judges nt a
thousand dollars than it will at a salary
live times as larg- Dod bellied incum-
bents of the bench will hoot at the idea
of a thousand dollar judge, but the con-
vention could do no better job for the
people of Oklahoma than to fix a max-
imum salarv of a thousand dollars tor
■all judicial and state officers. Let the
judicial robes be juniper and overalls
and the official diet be corn bread and
bacon and the administration of justice
will be more in sympathy and accord ,
with the common people.
.The income of the average family of
Oklahoma is less than a thousand a
\ ear and the people should not be com-
pelled to pay their servants more than
they get themselves.
11 is argued that high salaries reduc-
es the probability of graft, but experi-
ence has proven otherwise. It is the
diamond liilted ami purple robed high
rollers that run to graft, while men who
have ordered their daily walk and con-
versation to a blue jeans and corn bread
basis are generally free from stain.
This continual measuring with mon-
ey has lowered American statesman-
ship to the lowest level attained by any
nation. Det us here in Oklahoma set
set up a different standard. Let us
proclaim to the world that our best cit-
izens cheerfully travel the hard ror.d of
poveitv for the honor of public service.
Put the salaries at a thousand dollars
and the oftices will not attract men
whose only thought is how to get licli,
men who worship wealth more than
the commonwealth, money more than
humanity tV coin more than conscience.
Money grabers have occupied our pub-
lic offices and used them to grab more
money until public service has become
a synonym for corruption and we have
almost forgotton that there are patriot-
ic and honest men who live their pov
i erty proudly and hold honor above e-
Put the salaries at a thousand dollars
and when the nation wakens from the
nightmare of money worship sUe will
turn to Spartan Oklahoma for trained
and purified poverty with which to a-
ilorn -ier courts, and for statesmen un-
controlled by wealth to fill her cabinets
- and presidential chairs.
This is a practical day and genera-
tion Public patronasa rests upon posi-
tive merit The foundation of valuo is
QUALITY. For this reason
Has no superior and people v;ho cirju
buy there buy again.

And they ought to know because they
