If you vote the republican ticket
straight this year you can’t make any
ing of the Republican ticket as it will
appear on the official ballot. The
other two tickets will be on the same
sheet to the right. The whole ticket
is voted by stamping with the rubber
stamp in the square surrounding the
eagle. Stamp right on the eagle and
you will vote the whole ticket and
take no chance of mutilating your
ballot and losing your vote.
T. J. Baliew is qualified to till the
position of representative, and the vo-
ters of this county regardless of polit-
ical belief realise the fact.
J. R. Smith, republican candidate
for commissioner from this district is
a man worthy ef the contidence of the
voters and should be elected by a large
majority. “Bob” is one of Blaine
county’s sturdy farmers and believes
in rigid honesty in all things, and he
will All the office with honor. He is
well qualified for the duties. Vote
for J. R. Smith and you will never
haye cause to regret it.
The demo-pops of this county have
went on the theory this year in their
campaign that a farmer has no ideas
of his own, but must accept of the ones
they give out. In this we are happy
to say they are badly mistaken. The
farmers of this county are all well read
and when you try to misrepresent
things to them you will find that they
know a bit themselves. The demo-
pops started Into the campaign to win
by villif ying the republican candidates.
They have manufactured all kinds of
lies, some that would make decency
hide out. Intelligent people realize
that the storiee they have circulated
about all the republican candidates
beiug thieves and hoodlers are nothing
A vote for T. J. Baliew will help I more than campaign lies to catch
along toward getting free text books votes with. They can’t win and they
for Oklahoma. | realize the fact.
Next Tuesday 1b election day, and
before you cast your ballot we would
like to converse a little with you
through the columns of the Bulletin
We wish to make an appeal to our
readers to think well before they cast
their ballots. This election means
something to every citizen of Oklaho-
ma. As you are well aware statehood
is the paramount question before the
people this year, and the question
sifted down to a fine point is; He we
want statehoodi1 You all know what
statehood means to us, therefore it is
unnecessary for us to take up the
question at length and dwell upon the
wonderful amount of good It wonld do
There are two candidates before the
voters of this territory. One Wm.
Cross, the democratic nominee who Is
in favor of single statehood, in other
words, saddling Indian territory onto
the voters of Oklahoma and dividing
up all our public funds in order to suc-
cessfully put that territory upon an
equal footing with Oklahoma. As
you all can see this proposition is un
fair to the taxpayers of Oklahoma in
every respect. It is voting to divide
our school and public building funds
with the people of Indian territory
who have never done one solitary
thing toward helping the taxpayers of
Oklahoma accumulate this fund. Can
any body advance a logical reason why
we should do this. The democratic
politicians have told you we should do
this; they have grossly misrepresented
the facts in the case, in fact they
have concocted any kind of lie that
would sound good and help them into
office.' It will be several years before
we could get any kind of statehood in-
cluding Indian territory. There is a
treaty with certain tribes of Indians
which absolutely forbids the govern-
ment from* changing their present
mode of government for a certain
number of years, consequently itisab-
sulutely impossible for us to get state-
hood with Indian territory attached.
On the other hand, the republican
party has nominated B. S. McGuire
who stands, as his party does, for im
mediate statehood for Oklahoma
alone, and taking in such portions of
the Indian territory as may be ready
for statehood at future dates. We
have every assurance that if McGuire
is elected to represent us in congress
that we will get statehood before 1908.
There is no guess work about the mat-
ter for we will be a state as soon as
congress meets in December.
We earnestly ask our readers to
look at this matter from a non-parti-
san standpoint, Don’t let politics in-
terfere with your future welfare.
If you think we need immediate
statehood with all the many advant-
ages t o us VOTE FOR B. S. MC-
If you honestly think we don’t need
statehood, vote for Wm. Cross.

WEBSTER DAVIS II.
The editor of the Geary Gazette, so
he says, has been slung at with a brick
bat by a negro of Watonga. This
sounds like a pipe dream, and no one
doubts but what is it another Web
Davis case. Our readers will all re-
member. how about election time in
K. C. a few years ago, when Davis,
for political reasons took bis bat from
his head and shot a few holes through
the crown. This. likeCarley’s story,
was done to gain sympathy. The edi-
tor of t he Gazette, so report says, he
parted company with Frank Peek and
J. O. Morehead, at Martz’s store in
Watonga, and had started to the depot
by his lonesome, when near the depot
some one tossed a brickbat at him.
Now remember that Bro. Carley made
it a point to make this dark and gloomy
voyage all alone, so people would have
a good opportunity to hurl missiles at
his cranium. To be honest with the
Gazette man, we think it was some of
his demo-pop friends that waylaid him,
if such a thing really happened.

pretty close for Silver.
