page twenty-one is a resume of the
principle acts of legislation during
the fifty years the republicans have
had control of the national govern-
There are now approximately four
hundred members of the House,
and ninety-two Senators, and there
are thirty-seven subjects listed,
covering a period of fifty years.
Yet, in the list are two measures
fathered and put through Congress
under the leadership of McGuire;
the Statehood Bill, and the hill for
the removal of restrictions.
Very lew members of Congress
are fortunate enough to secure the
enactment of measures that attract
national attention, and MeGuire's
friends are proud of his record.
The Statehood Bill, is, of course,
listed, because it marked the end of
a historic struggle, and because the
Enabling Act for the five million
dollars granted the state for schools,
ihe additional endowment of one
million fifty thousand acres, and
others features, was the most liberal
ever passed by Congress.
The Restriction Bill marked a
new and important change in the
Indian policy of the federal govern-
ment, and saved the state from
bankruptcy. But one million acres
of eighteen million acres in old
Indian Territory was subject to tax-
ation. The Restriction Bill subject-
ed more than twelve million acres
more to taxation, and to sale. It
meant the development of that
side of the state; saved the counties
from bankruptcy, and greatly re-
lieved the tax payers of old Okla-
ner county, Kansas, February 8.

how to Vote Under Election Law
Now in Force
There seems to be considerable misun-
derstanding over the state as to the man-
ner of voting under the election law now
in force and Chairman Harris of the Re-
publican Stute Committee is daily re
ceivin# inquiries as to the manner of
voting a straight ticket and also the
procedure when a person desires to vote
for persons on two or more tickets.
The state ballot will contain the tickets
of four political parties—Democratic, Re-
publican. Socialist and Prohibition in the
order mentioned running in separate col
uinns from the left to right.
Any person desiring to vote a straight
party tscket will stamp in the circle un-
der the device which heads the ticket of
the party with which he desires to vote,
the Democratic ticket having a rooster at
the top, the Republican an eagle, the So-
cialist an open hand and the Prohibi-
tion a rising sun.
When a voter desires to vote a mixed
ticket he can use one of two methods.
He can stamp in the circle under the
device of one party, then stamp in the
squares before the names of any candi-
dates on any of the other tickets he de-
sires to vote for. The law says a ballot
so stamped shall be counted for all of the
candidates upon the ticket headed by the
device under which the voter has stamp-
ed except the candidates for the offices
where the elector has stamped before the
names of candidates fur the same office
upon the ticket of some other party, the
vote to be counted for candidates so
stamped. Voters should be careful to,
never stamp in the circle under the de
vice of more than one party as this will
invalidate the whole ballot and cause it
to be thrown out as mutilated.
Another way of voting a mixed ticket
is not to stamp under any of the devices
but to stamp in the square before the I
name of each candidate for whom oik ,
desires to vote. A ballot so stamped will tntion that would paralyze our effort..
be counted for each candidate so stamped j dealing with the modern problems of
but in case the voter stamps before two; commerce, industry and transportation
or more candidates for the sameofflce the nlul w'nch holds a view of the tariff that
ballot shall not .be counted as to these l,ut '"to execution would bring upon us
these candidates. universal disaster."
