1 am a candidate for Court Clerx,
subject to the action of the Demo-
cratic primary, August 1.
Six years ago I was appointed Clerk
of tbv Superior court by the County
Commissioners which resulted in a
law suit—the supreme court of Okla-
homa held that the Superior Court
was a state office and that the Com
inissiomrs did not have power to ap-
point a judge or clerk, and as a con-
sequence the court was abandoned.
Four years ago I filed for the same
office but it then appeared that 1
would have to undergo another law
suit if 1 was elected, and 1 did not
make the race. Having made an effort
on l wo occasions to get to be clerk
and at a loss of several hundred dol-
lars, I think as well as my friends,
that 1 am entitled to the place at the
| online primary.
I am a Missouri Democrat—have
been publishing newspapers and bat-
tling for democracy for 25 years.
Eleven years ago I came to Broken
Arrow and established the Democrat.
If you think I am qualified and worthy
of the office I aspire 1 will appreciate

James Buchanan is the only president ol the United States who
was never married.
Vermont is the only slate in the union that has gone republican
for nine consecutive presidential elections.

that there is a black heart behind that white llag.
If Villa is alive lie will soon join the Mexican soldiers, but if

In 1888 a change of U>7 votes from Cleveland to Harrison would
have given Harrison the electoral vole ol the state of Connecticut.
In 18% a change of 92 votes inun Bryan to McKinley would
have given McKinley the Electoral vote of the state of South Dakota.
In 18% a change of 141 votes from McKinley to Bryan would
have given Bryan the electoral vote of the State of Kentucky.
Better roads mean belter farms and better homes and a better

In 1904 a change of A> votes in the state of Maryland from
Parker to Roosevelt would have given Roosevelt the electoral vote
of the state.
Eight vice-presidents of the United States have become presi

more, Johnson, Arthur and Roosevelt by succession.
John Quincy Adams, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, R. B
Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wilson
are the presidents of the United Stales who have occupied the chair
without having received a majority of the popular vole.
R. B. Hayes was elected by the scant majority of one vote in
the electoral college and James Monroe received every elcctora1
vote except one. 1 liese are tli two marked extremes in our presi
If we have a serious war with Mexico it will be Germany’s time
to laugh, and England anti her allies are doing everything they can
to stop it. if the German countries can keep American supplies away
from England for three months the big war over the water will come
to an end with the Kaiser dictating terms.— Drumright Derrick.
As we go to press, there arc only eleven democrats and two
republicans out tor the office ol sheritt in Sequoyah County. From
wliat we know about that neck of the woods we think it would be
a precautionary measure, along the lines ol preparedness, to elect
the entire bunch.

When you begin to wonder whether or not your vote will
amount to anything in the coming election it is well for you to
remember that in i6t>4 a change or a/o votes in the state ot New

J ne lollowing speech was made by General Huerta, one-time
pit-.niciii ol .Mexico, on the day beiore lie was lorced to lice lroin
tiie national palace in order to save his lile:
i am nut an aid ol the gruigocs. Why should i be? No good
Mexican need be alraid ol the gnngues. it it had not been lor the
treachery ol i'resident bantu Anna who sold himself to the United
.Hales in 1847, wc should have beaten lire Yankees then, as we surely
shall heat them the next time. Let them cross the Rio Brava 1 We
will send them back with bluody heads.
"We Mexicans need not be alraid of any foreign nation. Did we
not beat the Spaniards? Did we not also beat the French, and the
Austrians, and the Belgians, and all the other foreign adventurers
who came with MuxmiJian? In the same way we would have beaten
the gringucs had we had a fair chance at them. The Texans, who
beat bama Anna at ban Jacinto, you must know, were not gringocs,
but brother Mexicans, ut whom we have reason to be proud.
" 1 o my mind, there are only two real nations in the world,
besides our old Aztec nation. 1 hose two nations are England and
"All the others cannot properly be called nations; least of all the
t Tiitcd States, which is a mere hodge-podge of other nations. One of
these days England and Japan and Mexico will get together, and
alter that there will be an end to the United States.”
There is the trite reason for Mexican anarchy. That is the rea-
son why Americans returning from that republic tell that people
there in general believe that were Texas excluded, Mexico could soon
include the rest of the United States,

mind he tackled the bottom

smiles of Dame Fortune.

his chosen vocation and so well
did he apply his time and talents
that lie is now the owner of one
ol the largest stock ranches in
(Iklahoma. As he prospered in
business he also found time to
broaden in the civic, literary and
philanthropic duties' of the com-
munity. Mr. Gibson is not a
professional politician, but rath-
er a student of political con-
ditions and the requirements of
beneficial legislative measures.
It is not surprising that a man
with his temperament, force of
character and attainments should
aspire to the important position
of a seat in our legislative halls,
and neither is it surprising that
he is so justly popular among
those who know him best. If nominated at the August primaries he
will he one . the men who will lead the Democratic ticket to suc-
ctss in November anil when elected he will beyond question prove
an honor to his party and the section of the state that is respon-
sible fur Ins election.
KELLEY F. GlgSON
THE OKLAHOMA NATIONAL GUARD
lhe recent rainy season lias started every one to talking about
the necessity for good roads. Fvery candidate for office will do well
to consider this subject as an important issue irrespective of party,
and be prepared to work out the problem satisfactorily to his con-
stituents while m office, iliis is imperative duty devolving upon all
officials according to otiice he holds. It will be your duty directly
or indirectly, and a failure to "deliver the goods' will make you a
favorable candidate for the discard at a subsequent election.
Last week the country was thrilled from Maine to California
by the intelligence that I'resident M llson had ordered the mobiliza-
tion ot tiie National Guard in every State and Territory for service
on the troubled Mexican border, ur it circumstances warrant it, for
service m that revolution torn country.
Oklahomans arc interested in tiie knowledge that in this call
they too are represented. 1 his state lias never kept up a large mili-
tary organization but it lias had since Territorial days a regiment of
intantry and some auxiliary corps, ft now has a regiment of infantry
a i engineering corps, a hospital corps and two troops of cavalry,
it has had, until recently, a signal corps and steps are on foot to
re organize that important military unit.
In the Spanish American War, Oklahoma's quota of soldiers
consisted of one battalion from Oklahoma Territory and one com
puny from the Indian Territory, and they together formed a virile
part of tin first Tcrrtorial regiment. The other companies being
supplied by Arizona and New Mexico. Oklahoma and Indian Terri
ion- each contributed a troop ot Rough Riders to Roosevelt’s famous
and much advertised regiment. Now it is entitled to furnish one
complete unit, the regiment and the auxiliary corps and extra troops
that will he added to like units from other states to form regiments
and larger units.

the corps are VVm. Clapper, fife, and

Tulsa is so chemically pure that the crippled pencil peddlers,
and the blind organ grinders have orders to "move on." Most of
the stores and the pool rooms are closed on Sundays. The "Red-
light” has been shattered or scattered. The bootleggers have had to
quit. A poker joint was raided last week. The only relic of the old
days and ways seems to be the place at 110$ South Main Street
where a bet can be placed upon the ponies.
California, Kentucky Maryland, Machigan, North Dakota Ohio
and Oregon are the only states in the union that have ever divided
their vote in a presidential election, during the past 40 years, and
of this number Qilifornia and Maryland are the only two who
have ever committed the offense more than once. Maryland lias
divided twice and California four times. North Dakota is the only
state in the union that enjoys the unique distinction of having split
her vote three ways. In 1892 when Cleveland, Harrison and Weaver
were in the race North Dakota gave some of her electoral votes to
all three of the candidates.
I t i thirty-five years Porfirio Diaz ruled Mexico, nominally as
president, an emperor in fact. He was accounted one o’f the world's
greatest men. It was less than ten years ago that Theodore Roose-
\elt, authority on all tilings decreed Diaz the statesman of the age.
More recently than that Mr. Taft saluted Don Porfirio across the
border in a handclasp of presidential fellowship. But Diaz lived to
see Ins dynasty topple, his glory vanish, and from the gloom of exile
to observe a stern verdict becloud It is place in history.
Today the Mexican hates Uncle Sam and all things American.
He distrusts us. All our forbearance has been cowardice. All our
professions of good will are lies. So thinks the impoverished,
illiterate Mrxu.iii. And why not ? \\ hat has be known of government
except a merciless force that has kept him in bondage? What of law
except the rod . t power plied by the strong on the back of the weak?
\\ hat of justice except an empty cruel mockery?
He is w ithout ideals, without character. He uses the white flag
of truce to decoy \mericans into ambush, and a sacrilege which many
a savage tribe would scorn to resort to is to hint a piece of strategy
Such is Mexico after the “gun and saber” rule of Diaz.
