paramount issue in the coining
campaign. Being wards of the
government, we have a right to
ask independence and self-govern-
ment, and no man in our county
or Oklahoma, has the Aglo-Saxon
blood more seated in his veins for
this purpose than Thomas H.
Doyle. Like that old Irish pa-
triot, Gladstoue, who lived and
died as an idol in the hearts of
the people, Tom Doyle stands to-
day for Oklahoma and should he he
nominated at the Enid convention
as the Democratic candidate, he
will he elected world without end

DKMOt: It AT 1C CON G It ESS-
ION A I. CANDIDATES.
The lists for the Democratic
Congressional tournament at Enid
oil the 22ad of April arc rapidly
filling and although two or three
very popular gentlemen have
withdrawn their names from con-
sideration it is hut fair to say that
never before has the Democratic
party had such splendid material
from which to select its candidate
and never before have the pros-
pects been so bright tor the el-
ection of the Democratic nominee.
Many good men have gone down
to defeat under the Democratic
banner in past campaigns, but in
each case their failure was the re-
sult of other considerations than
politics and the comparative abil-
ity and integrity of the opposing
candidates. In this year of grace
for the first time in the territory’s
history political conditions are
nearly normal. The republicans
have not only the prestige, hut
also the misfortune to ho in power.
The opposition to republicanism
is to all present appearances more
closely united than ever before.
They are in effect one pnrty.
Factional differences have been
eliminated and a growing enthusi
asm pervades the party ranks.
The Democratic platform will
reiterate the devotion of the party
to the cause of single statehood.
It will arraign the present and
past republican administrations
for the corruption of its appointed
officials and the scandals in schools
and asylums that have made the
name of the Territory a byword
and a reproach. It will throw
the searchlight of investigation
upon the record of the little “Na-
poleon of finance,” Flynn, and
point out some of 4 he avenues he
has trod in accumulating hank
It will declare a whole lot of
other things equally interesting
and the nominee of the conven-
tion will get all the campaign ma-
terial needed from the file of re-
publican papers and the notebook
of republican leaders.
The bright prospects for demo-
cratic success has caused nearly
every county to bring forward a
favorite son and some counties
have it whole delegation of favor-
ites. With the voluntary retire-
ment and declination of Colonel
Roy Hoffman, of Chandler, and
Judge Robert Ray, of Lawton,
the fiel d of available candidate^
either receptive or active, who
can hope to cut much figure in the
convention will consist of Judge
C. B. Ames, Col. R. B. Forrest,
Col. “Bill” Cross, Hon. Freeman
Miller Capt. Edgar Jones and
ThomaB H. Doyle. There may
tie complimentary votes for
others, hut the next congressman
from Oklahoma will be selected
from among that bunch.
They are all good men, sound
on single statehood and Demo-
cratic principles, and the Herald
believes in giving them a fair field
and no especial favor, for those of
them who do not win this time
will be in it when we set single
statehood. Here’s for the nomi
