A Reply to the Article
In The Midget
In regard to the charge my
FRIEND HILL had in Monday's
issue of the Daily "Midget," 1
will say the whole thing is un-
founded. However, I will say
while at the sale of Mr. Hixons
on last Monday week, I did hear
a man of no little responsibility
say "I understand that Mr. Hill
said that if he were elected repre-
sentative of Kingfisher county,
he (Hill) would put a law on the
statute books of this state pro-
hibiting anyone shipping any-
thing into this state outside of
the merchants of our state in car
load lots, I am not responsible
for what others may say in re-
gard to this matter, but at the
time I said to this man, "I do
not think Mr. Hill would do
thing like that," and for him to
jump me for refuting such a re-
port against him, I cannot clearly
understand his motives. But
enough of that what I most de-
sire for those vigilant democratic
thinkers to meditate upon is the
Keynote Speech of the campaign
that was delivered by our Gov-
ernor at Lawton on Saturday,
October 19, 1912. I ask all think
ing democrats to heed that ad
vice well, and when you cast yotii
vote on Nov. 5th, cast yours ac
cordingly, and see to it that you
cast your vote for members of
the Legislature that will stand
for those things that are benefic-
ial to every citizen of this great
State. Now if you have not read
the speech to which I refer above
call at my home and I will be
pleased to furnish same to you,
and you will say "Hurrah for the
Banjo Statesman?" and further,
it would have been a great bless-
ing for the taxpayers of the state
for KING to have had the cour-
age and ability to have played
the Banjo the full term of sixty
days and then adjourned without
passing a single law. W hy? Why?
Answer: It is one general pro-
test from one end of the state to
the other against the actions of
the Legislature and of most of
the laws that were enacted, and
if space and time permitted I am
sure you would raise your hands
in horror to have seen some of
the high-handed methods to put
some of the measures thru the
house. I have stated a number
of times how I stand on some of
the most important questions that
come up for our consideration
and some will come up again in
the 4th Legislature. I opposed
with no little courage the county
assessor law and will continue to
oppose same, and will introduce
a bill repealing same as soon as I
get back to the Legislature and
will contend for its passage; also,
1 stand for the elimination of a
number of our state institutions
as well as at least one-half of the
appointive and elective offices of
the state; also, eliminating a
number of our deputies, not only
in state but county as well.
Again, I am opposed to abolish-
ing the township officers and will
fight any measure that points in
that direction; also, I am in favor
of abolishing a number of the
courts in the state, and one in
particular is the Superior Courts.
When one begins to look into the
matter of elimination and consol
idation, it might be well to clean
the whole thing off since state-
hood and begin over again. With
the experience I have had in
statehood affairs in the last two
years, if the voters of Kingfisher
county feel as tho I could repre-
sent them for them for the next
two years, I will thank you in ad-
vance for the confideuce you im-
pose in me and it shall be my
duty as well as privilege to do all
in my power to represent our
county in an honorable and gent-
lemanly manner, and 1 remain
your obedient servant,
GEO. L. KING.
