The Hennessey Clipper
Oklahoma Temperance Workers
Are Against Haskell's Plan.
Guthrie, Oklahoma , March 14
—There are many citizens
throughout Oklahoma who be
lieve that inasmuch as the peo
pie hive voted for constitutional
prohibition, there should be no
compromise of any kind wiih
the liquor traffic and that pro-
hibition should be as genuine as
possible. They feel that the
best way to bring this about is
to restrict the legitimate sale of
intoxicants to' the compounding
of prescriptions for medical pur-
poses by apothecaries and to
scientific purposes in laborator-
ies. This would forbid the sale
of intoxicants, except in medi-
cines, on physicians' prescrip-
tions, and compel every person
seeking to get liquor for bever-
age purposes to make his pur
chases in outside states and have
it consigned as an interstate
commerce shipment.
Such persons are asking for
the defeat of a dispensary system
as proposed in the state legisla
ture and as indorsed by Govern
or C. N. Haskell and the Rev. E.
C. Dinwiddie, superintendent of
the Oklahoma Anti Saloon league.
Governor Haskell asserts that
means fur the purchase of in-
toxicants for legitimate purpos
es are as essential as a law for
the enforcement of prohibition,
and that a dispen sary system or
something like it is imperative.
Under the constitution all laws,
except emergency laws, do not
become operative until ninety
days after the final adjou rnment
of the legislature. Should the
legislature declare a law to be an
emergency law, it is effective im
mediately upon its passage in the
legislature and its approval by
the governor. The referendum
is withheld, however, from emw
gency laws. There is no opposi
tion to making prohibitory en-
forcement an emergency, but a
dispensary system has so many
experimental features that many
citizens are unwilling to consent
to its enactment aa an emergency
law. Governor Haskell contends
that the referendum may be ap-
plied to emergency measures,
and has promised that if the
fight on the adoption of the dis
pensary system under the
emergency clause is stopped, he
will join in submitting the dis-
pensary law to the people at the
election next fall under the re
In both the democratic and re
publican parties are men who as
sert that in the appointment of
dispensers the governor would
build up a dangerous and vicious
personal political machine, and
that in every county in time
would be an organization repre-
senting the liquor dealers that
would be as powerful as the
saloon element in city wards.
Furthermore, by paying a com
mission to dispensers 011 liquors
sold in lieu of spe:ilic salaries,
as is proposed, and giving the
state a percentage of the profits,
the radical prohibitionists feel
the sting of the accusation that
they would be puticipants as
citizens of the state in the saloon
business. To provide a stock of
liquors is contemplated. This is
galling to the radical prohibi
tionists, who realize that they
would be taxed to start the dis
pensaries, or state saloons, in
business. It is practically a
certainty, however, that the
legislature will create a dispens
ary system.
Teddy's Job.
(By Harry Alexander Moore, in
Kansas City Star.)
One day he
Dined with Booker T.
And that is all
They can recall,
Or use against,
Or hold ferninst
The President.
Or what he meant;
And should he strike
Some fraud they liue,
On this event
They will comment,
For that is all
They can recall
To use against,
Or hold ferninst
The President,
Or what he Meant.
He'll dig a ditch
For ev'ry nation,
And open it
To navigation;
He mends a hitch
With just equation
'Twixt fighting kings,
By arbitration;
He'll bust a trust
Or spike a strike,
Or spot a graft
That always laughed
At those who tried '
To get its hide.
And lighting quick
The great "Big Stick"
Comes down a whack
. On guilty back;
And when railroads
Make such inroads
On equal Rights
He ups and fight,?;
He put his bill
Right through the mill,
And now of late
That old rebate
Is certainly
High up a tree;
And so with Oil
His hands he'll soil;
The Octopus
Now makes a fuss
Where once its plan
Was that no man,
Much bigger than
The President,
And that it meant
A finish ti^ht
To win the Right;
So Teddy, true,
Took up the cue,
And how he flew
Last year or two.
I haven't time
From making rhyme
To make the race
To land the place;
But Taft can smile
And all the while
Hold on the lid
As Teddy did
On those who tried
The shells to hide
When they were caught
With egfjs not bought.
No! not for me!
This job that he
Holds down so well
My head would swell
And run me daft;
But maybe Taft
Is big enough
Of fiber tough,
To hold it down
Without a frown;
No! not for me!
I'd rather be
A stander-by
And see fur My
The way it Hew
Last year or two.

stitute from June 15th to July

Republican Platform Adapted at
Oklahoma City.
Be it resolved that we, the re
publicans of Oklahoma, in state-
convention assembled, re-atlirm
our devotion to the cardinal
principles of our party which
have unanswerably proven to be
conducive to good government,
national prosperity, peace and
We most heartily endorse the
splendid and patriotic adminis-
tration of President R >>sevelt.
The rights of the common people
during his administration have
been recognized and sustained
is never before in the history of
our nation.
Logically, we believe the Hon-
orable William H. Taft to follow
in line of the great Roosevelt as
the candidate of the reou'ohcan
party for the presidency of the
United States. We have in him
the ideal American citizen, broad
guaged and fully equipped with
the knowledge of the great pro
jects_ of reform1 in government
now under way. In executive
experience second to none in the
nation; witha practical knowledge
of our government arid all 'gov-
ernments, of judicial tempera
ment and experience, we cordial
ly endorse his candidacy, riot at
the behest of particular individ-
uals, thinking to reap personal
benefit, or that this endorse
ment is the elfcsct of their work,
but because we, representing the
wishes of the rank and file of
our party, in Oklahoma.' would
inform the nation at large of
our preference far this great
It is our firm conviction that
there could ba no safer or more
sxperienced statesm m to guide
>urnational destinies. And in
furtherance of these sentiments,
vehereby instruct our delegates,
"heir alternates or proxies, to
the national republican conven-
tion to cist their votes for every
proposition favorable to the
nomination of William H. Taft
fir president.
We endorse the splendid
record of Honorable Bird S Mc
iuire, the republican representa-
tive from Oklahoma in congress
We stand in favor of the strict
enforcement of all the provisions
if our constitution and our
statutory laws so long as such
.jrovisions rem lin a pirt, of the
law ol our state and we oppose
my evasion of such constitution

legislation open to abuse or con
struetion permitting the violation

Woile the ponstitutien permits

Decerning a party to any such
traffic, thereby milking ou rselves,
our wives and children, j lint
jartners in the sale of liquor,
Mid our property responsible in
my way for the maintenance of
such system.
In view of the fact that the
lemocratic party- in this state
openly threatens to disfranchise
t ie colored voters of this state
by the passage of a "Grandfath-
er law," we | iin with the repjb
icarts of the state of Ohio in their

representation in congress am''!

f this Union where white and
olored citizens are disfranchised
to the end that the fourteenth
intendment to the constitution
if the United States may be en
forsed according to its letter
and spirit.
We denounce the unpatriotic
iction of Governor C. N Haskell
n refusing the national flag pre
sented by the ladies of the Grand
Army of the republic to float
over the state house. Such re
fusal was an insult to those
noble women and a misrepre
sentation of the people of Okla
honia who stand for the flag and
its brave defenders and for all it
represents as the symbol of the
greatest power on earth.
We condemn the democratic
state administration and the
present democratic legislature
for the creation of useless officers
iVnd for these evtravaganeies in
.-'tate government burdening the
people of the state with extor
tionate and unbearable taxation.

Missing—Foul Play Suspected.
Waukomis Hornet: Mrs. J.
H. Croft was, in Tuesday and re
ports that her son, Tlios. Turk,
has been missing since the 30th
day of January. 0 i tint d*y he
went to sell his team and some
implements to a man by the
name of Leggett who lives near
Lacey, ten iniles west of Hennes
Say. Legget says that he paid
Turk the money for the team
and that he started to walk home
Mr. Kennett, who keeps the
store at Lacey, says that he saw
Turk at the store just before

a few minutes started north
followed by his faithful dog.
This is the last trace of him
Turk is an old bachelor and lived
alone, except the companionship
of his dog, four miles northwest
of Lacey, where he owns a tSO acre
farm. Not having heard from
him his folks became uneasy
and a search of his home reveal
ed his absence. Leggett told
his folks that he said he was
going out to Beaver county to
stay with a neighbor that had
recently moved there, but a
letter from the neighbor says he
has not seen him. The neighbors
have taken the matter in hand
and searching parties are look
ing for the missing man. He is
48 years old, black h iir and
beard, rather slim, having been
in poor health. Everything was
found at his home just as though
he had left for a short visit. M rs.
Croft fears that he has been
murdered. Parties near Lacey

is not found soon arrests will be
