And What is Your Opinion About
the Position Shawnee
THE SHAWNEE NEWS WISHES TO KNOW WHAT THE
PEOPLE'S WANTS AND DESIRES ARE IN THE MATTER
Vote the Ballot Below and Bring or Send
Your Vote to The News Office—Give Rea-
sons Whv You Aiefor Statehood or
Why You Are Against It—Will Be
The question of statehood Is a paramount one in new state politics at
present; every man, woman and child is interested in the future of Oklaho-
ma. There are under present conditions countless different sentiment*
swaying the people either for or against statehood, all because of the differ-
ent views held on the unfair constitution. To the people of Shawnee the
case has a direct bearing more than in any other part of the new state.
By the terms of the enabling act Shawnee is the center of the new state.
The question now is whether the rank and file of Shawnee are willing to
accept the unfair and partisan constitution as the price of statehood.
Below you will find a ballot which you should vote according to your
position in the matter and bring or send to The News office. With each
vote five reasons are requested to be sent stating why you are for state-
hood or why you are not. The results of the contest will appear daily in
the News and as many reasons as possible. Never in the history of Okla-
homa have the people been forced to decide such an Important question.
There being a division of opinion, we desire to ascertain if possible the sen-
timent of the people. This contest is open for all who desire to vote and
will continue until further notice. It will be a strong indicator of the way
the elections will go. Place an X in the square opposite either FOR or
AGAIN8T and leave the other blank. t
I Washington. May L'U.—Trust inves-
tigations and prosecutions are making
Uncle Sam pull his jeans.
The cost of special counsel makes
the biggest hole. Within the last four j
years the department of justice has I
paid out over $270,000 for this pur-1
pose. Some of the items are as fol-
Beef trust, $4N,00o
Standard Oil (in court), $5,000. |
Tobacco trust (under investlga- J
Paper trust (concluded), $20,000.
Harvester trust (under investlga- 3
Coal and Oil (under investigation),
Powder trust (under investigation), I
Turpentine trust. $25,000.
There are almost a dozen investi-1
gations which have cost a pretty pen-1
ny, but taey are of less importance.
Big money has to be paid fry special
counsel to get proper results. Kel- '
logg and Morrison, who are being
paid about $12,000 a year each, are ,
devoting part of their time to the work ;
Judge McKeynolds, former assistant'
attorney general, who has charge of,
the tobacco trust investigation, is de-
voting his entire time to it. He is
paid $16,000 a year.
This is not as high proportionately
as was paid under the Knox adminis-
tration. 1). W. Watson of Ohio got
$10,000 for oue argument in the
Northern Securities case. Hudson
and Harmon of Ohio got $5,000 each
for their work on the Santa Fe re-
bating cases. When they found they
could not indict Paul Morton they
withdrew from the case.
Frank B. Kellogg of St. Paul Is
getting the biggest hunk of Uncle
Sam's money. He lias had charge of
the Harriman investigation and it is
understood draws $12,000 a year from
