Voters of Kingfisher County
Clyde Smith asks for the re-
election to the office of Sheriff of
Kingfisher County. Fit; has con-
duced the affairs of his office in
a straight-forward, business-like
manner on a busineas basis with-
out the blowing of trumpets and
a lot of noise without seeking ap-
plause and playing to the galler-
ies. His administration has been
both able and efficient to his con-
stituents. The county was never
more free from crime than at the
present time and with the exper-
ience of one term he is well qual-
ified to enter upon the duties of
a second term, which any officer
ought to be entitled to who has
No one can run the office more
economical than he has. His op-
ponent, Mr. Chas. Love, even
with the assistance of his brother,
Pres. Love, who is helping Char-
lie's campaign, will not be able to
do it. During the Love adminis-
tration Chas. Love was jailor.
He drew a regular salary as jailor
and had his brother allowed al-
low extra jail guards to the
amount of $734-75- Not beinS
satisfied with this, his brother,
Pres. Love, drew $1.00 per day
from the county for visiting the
jail. So you see, the little of
running the jail alone was very
costly alone. What was all this
for? It is not necessary now.
Do not be misled on the deputy
proposition regarding salary, as
he will be forced to put a deputy
on a fee which the records show
to be far the more costly system,
he does not intend to pay a dep-
uty out of his own pocket because
if his salary was cut in two the
deputy would get as much or
more than he would get. You
will have it to pay one way or
another. Don't be fooled.
No one gives credence to his
^reat claims for his efficiency
when they remember the work
the Loves have given this county
in the past, of which much could
be said if necessary. 1 claim my

IS HAUNTING HIM
The growing strength of John J.
Davis in the First District for Con-
gress is causing Bird McGulre many
a sleepless night. The ghosts of hi*
record in Congress stand about hl
bed and poke him in the ribs. They
only foretell the time when the vot-
ers will poke votes into the ballot
boxes retiring Mr. McGuire for his
misrepresentation of this District.
Sent to Congress from a district
made to order for himself, Mr. M<v
Guire has had since 1907 to make a
record. If the voters return him this
fall their only excuse will be his rec-
Mr. McOulre's record has been con-
sistently against any revision of the
tariff downward and for the revision
of the tariff upward.
Supposedly favoring child labor
bills because there Is no child labor
employed In the First D'strict. Mc-
Guire voted acalnst the Child's Bu-
reau's Bill. This bill provided for
an Investigation of the working con-
ditions of laboring children and was
framed to enable labor legislation to
keep the children out of the shops
and in school.
As the First District IS a farming
community. McOulre will have to do
a lot of explaining on his vote against
the Free List Bill. McGuire voted
against this bill when he knew that
his constituents were mostly farmers
and that It was Introduced for their
benefit. This bill provided for fro#
farm implements and would have
saved the farmers millions of dollars.
It was aimed at the Harvesters' Trust
which Is now under Investigation.
Very careful to send out all raises,
in pensions to old soldiers, Mr. Mc-
Guire forgot their existence when he
was In Congress. McGuire answered
present but did not vote on the Omni-
bus Private Pension Bill. McGuire
was present but did not vote for the
Sherwood Pension Bill. McGuire was
present but did not vote for the Co*#
promise which was finally passed, al-
though he rushed to a printer soon
after and sent out application blank®
under It. McGuire was not present
In Congress, but out campaigning over
the District, while the old soldiers'
were suffering because they did not
get their pensions and he was not
even present to vote for the pension
appropriation which finally enablej
their checks to be paid.
Letters written to Mr. McGuire, ad-
dressed to Washington, for the past
two months have not reached him,
as he was chasing around the Dis-
trict trying to build up his fences,
while the most important legislation
of the last session was up for con-
sideration. Further Investigation ol
his record shows that McGuire has
not been able to establish free deliv-
ery in the larger towns of this dis-
trict, even though they have been en-
titled to it from six to ten years.
The tax payers of this District are
anxious to know why he voted against
the bill providing that corporations
be made citizens of the state and
therefore subject to Its control. Why
he did not vote for the money trust
Investigation and why he always rot^
