VOTE "NO" IF YOU FAVOR OKLAHOMA CITY.
The Citizens' Capital Campaign Committed of Oklahoma City desire to ad
vise friends of Oklahoma City throughout the State that they must stamp
their ballot "NO" on the capital question If they would keep the capital at
Oklahoma City, and not surrender the 1100,000 in cash and the fi..n acres o
land now In the hands of the (iovernor. The persistent litigation kept up Dy
Guthrie has prevented both the State and City from proceeding with the
erection of the building. No state capital In America ever gave tn the people
of Its state what Oklahoma City offers to the people of Oklahoma,
question is: Will you refuse it?
The peerless leader of democracy spoke to 6500 people at the auditorium
in Oklahoma City Tuesday night. Evidently Ills popularity has not waned
The scrap between the state board of education, or rather that part of
it controlled by supt. K. H. Wilson, is still holding the boards with both fac
tions standing pat.
Train robberies continue to be a profitable vocation In the eastern part
of the state. The latest haul was made early Tuesday morning and netted
fifty thousand. When Is tills going to stop?
"TTarry C Adams is a competent surveyor, and a practical civil engineer
For two years he has tilled the office of county surveyor as well as an)
man could perform its duties. He Is an energetic, honest and efficient youti!-
nian. and entitled from every standpoint to a re-election to the otllce.
It would be next to criminal negligence for any mnn who seeks to obtain
fairness in assessment of property and see the books In the assessors office
placed on a strictly business basis to fail to east hi svote this15ear for Oeow
\V. Carrico. the most proficient man that has ever been a candidate for this
position A proper assessment of all the property will place the burden
of taxation on an equitable basis Mr. Carrico is the man to bring about
such a basis.
Kor the office of justice of the peuce six men are to be elected next
luisday There are good men on b >tti tickets. One man who la ably
iiualilli d for this position is T. !•'. Donuell, who is a nominee on the Dem-
iriitlc ticket. He has had live years experience and his reputation is
tore reproach and voters will do well to select him on election day.
One of the mos* important of county offlees Ib that of register of deeds,
it is an office whtri'ln the records are kept, and records, if not kept straight
tnd true, are useless, and the means of endless trouble. The Democrats
' wisely when they decided to give the nomination to M. Cornelius, the
leput}' register, for It means that the rwords will In- kept corrieth Mr
Cornelius I* capable, has been u painstaking deputy, and is best qualllied to
'111 the position.
Among all the popular nominations made by the Democrats in Oklahoma
county in the August primary, then- was not one which ga\e more general
satisfaction than the choice of Mr Thomas E Kirby, for clerk of the district
court. Mr Kirby, since his apointment as clerk, lias shown exceptional abil-
ity in the position, and. being a lawyer, h>. understands the handling of legal
documents, and, as this is the work the district clerk has to do it Is well that
•lie voters have the opportunity to place such a mail tn the office, as the
indications now point they will do.
The further the campaign advances the more certain is the fact that
Al J Jennings will be elected county attorney by an overwhelming majority.
I he best people of the county are lined up for his election because they ac
cept his word that he will guard their interests in every way. prosecute those
charged with crime without discrimination, and conduct the office as a sacred
trust placed In his hands No one attacks Mr. Jennings' ability as a lawyer,
questions his courage to do his whole duty In the face of any Bort of opposi
tlon, and be is going to be elected because the people believe at this particular
time It is mauifeHtly important that a man of his strength and courage should
he chosen for this important position.
The campaign of Mr S M Armor for county commissioner from the
Oklahoma City district, has been an open, clean assurance of a gentleman who
has lived in the city from Its conception, grew from boyhood to mature mnn
hood here In short, and whose every day life has been a guarantee to the
voters that If elected he will make an Ideal official, a commissioner who will
guard carefully every expenditure of the millions the countv must pay out
during his term of office. Mr. Armor is not a politician or schooled In schemes
of various kinds which may bring heavy toll upon the taxpayers, but he is
a clean minded business man. honest and sincere in all his transactions,
and as commissioner will know the right and always stand for it.
There can be no doubt of the election of L. I,y 11 cti as county commis-
sioner from the second district next Tuesday, if the people of that district
consult their own interests as taxpayers. For six years he has served the
county In tills same position, and so thorough was he with all his work
and so absolutely honest with the taxpayers, that his candidacy this fall
Is hailed with confidence and pride by the best people in every part of
the county. Mr I.ynch has been a resident of the county since 1889, has
owned and lived on the same farm near Kdmond that he settled on in August
of that year, in addition to serving the county faithfully for Bix years, being
a mechanic of skill, as well as good farmer. Mr. Lynch has built for the
county one hundred and twenty-five fridges, and every one is standing and
in good condition today. Another very important argument in favor of Mr.
Lynch's election this fall is the fact as the records will show, that for five
years prior to his first entry upon the duties as commissioner, the state
board of equalization raised the assessment of the county, and the same
has occurred since his retirement. As a member of the county board of
equalization Mr. Lynch's work was so satisfactory during his six years in
office that there were 110 changes made by the state board As a matter of
fact there is not a man In the county better posted as to the duties of a
county commissioner than Mr. Lynch. And since he Ib known to always
stand for the right and a square deal to everybody, the people of his dis-
trict will not only bring credit to themselves but an honor to the entire county
by again electing him to this position next Tuesday.
No one can question for a moment the qualifications or worthiness 01
Mr T H McConnell for the office of register of deeds His experience as
an abstractor in this county for years, as well as his former experience as
register of deeds in a former home, all recommend him for the duties of
tlie office to which he aspires. McConnell Is a clean man alwaya Sttends to
any business entrusted to him, and he would make a good register ot
,rir:ris."s:. s. tsss r
years Mr i'arman is one of the most capable and worths young men in the
county, worthy of any man's support at the polls.

Jndge John W. Hayson's campaign for re-election after being nominated
bv his partv for ti second term without opposition, has been eminently sat
isfactorv to his friends and partisan supporters The Judge is one of Ok
lahoma's clean young men. a lawyer of good ability, clean
honest impulses. His record as Judge of the county court has been man!
festlv one of credit to him and to all who supported him In his first election
hence there is every assurance to his former supporters that It would be bul
fair and equitable to give him a second term
That George \V. Hevron should be the choice of the first district for
county commissioner, no well informed man of that district or the county >\ill
question. His career as a business man, always in legitimate undertakings,
careful attention to everything coming under his supervision, and the sue
cessful manner in which he has handled his personal affairs point to him
as the logical choice in this falls election A vote for Mr Hevron means
the selection of a capable, honorable, thoroughly well balanced man who
stands for straight business and a square deal to everybody
Cassius E. Tool, of Kdmond. the Republican candidate for county treas-
urer. has been making a host of friends and adding to his supporters in tin*
city as well as throughout the county by a clean, vigorous campaign. Mr.
Tool is a type of man who appeals to the voter as a tit occupant of this
big position of trust, because he is in every way qualified for the duties,
and his experience as a successful banker and business man especially tits
him for the place. He is one of the solid men of the county and worthy of
the office he seeks to fill.

No matter what may be a man's political belief, when voting next Tues-
day on a candidate for a member of the state senate from this district, ho
will be mistaking his own interests as a taxpayer and citisen if he fails to
put a cross in front of the name of Dr. John Tbreadgill. who has been a
constant worker for the upbuilding of the state and all its institutions.
Threadgill's experience as a member of the territorial legislature and senate,
together with the clean record he made in the interest for the public good,
commends him to every patriotic citizen
M. C Binion appeals to the taxpaving voters of The conn^ as a suitn
ble man for sheriff because of high character as a gentleman his general
knowledge of the important office, and his well known purposes as an official
to obey the law and show no partiality in his conduct of any position he
holds. As sherifT. the people know he will attend strictlv 10 the duties that
come to him. by courteous treatment of all with whom he conies in contact
In other words by making the county a model sheriff, without a thought of
favoritism or unfair treatment. It is universally conceded that Mr Hinton
will receive the largest vote this fall ever given a candidate for this office,
and he deserves it.
Harold Lee. the Republican nominee for clerk of the superior court. Is
receiving the assurances of substantial people all over the county because his
record is clear as a die for honesty and his qualifications are unquestioned
At every place he has spoken in the county he has had assurances from
people without regard to their political beliefs of support on election da
Mr Lee has been a resident of Oklahoma for 23 years and his record is an
open book exemplifying honesty and capability. He is a bright young law-
yer, and bis legal training especially qualifies him for the office be a*p:r. t-
to fill. His oponent was clerk of the county court two years ago during
the time Mr. Hooker was on the bench. During that administration there was
a shortage in the office of the clerk of $7,648 68. It is noticed that in the
Democratic hand book Offett does not refer to his record at all as such
official. This year Offett got the nomination by accident, but the people are
going to see to It that he Is not elected by accident.

A COLLECTION OF SANDWICHES.
An unusual way of serving olives at
•ens and receptions is to cut the olives
'rora the stones, chop fine and mix
with salad dressing Spread this on
thin slioes of buttered bread, form the
sandwiches and cut In squares.
Stuffed olives are very good prepared
In this way.
There is something about a sardine
sandwich which is especially appetis-
ing. Bone the flsh and mix with a lit-
tle lemon Juice and salad dressing or
with chopped hard cooked eggs. A
sour pickle chopped fine instead of ths
lemon Is a pleasant change.
Veal Sandwiches.—These are al-
most as good as chicken and if the
veal can be cooked with some chick-
en bones or a little chicken stock,
they can hardly be told from chicken.
When the meat Is tender, put It
through the meat chopper, season with
salt, pepper, and add a little salad
dressing to make It sufficiently moist.
Spread on buttered bread.
Egg and Curry Sandwiches.—Put
through the fine knife of the meat
chopper three yolks of hard cooked
eggs and a teaspoonful of bread
Crumbs. Season with a tablespoonful
of curry powder, one-half teaspoonful
of salt, one teaspoonful of Worcester-
shire sauce and moisten with a little
lemon juice. Spread on buttered
slices of bread. Garnish with nastur-
tium leaves and blossoms.
Ham Sandwiches.—Put a pound and
a half of ham. cold boiled, and a small
sour pickle through a food chopper,
add a tablespoonful of made mustard,
a dash of pepper and two tablespoon-
fnls of butter. Mix thoroughly and
spread on buttered bread.
Charging that Evelyn Allen of Okla-
homa City, one of the eight heirs to
the estate of Annie Allen, deceased,
preyed upon his mother's love of mor-
phine to induce her to turn over to
him her entire fortune of nearly $30,-
000 while the rest were left to mako
their own way, one of them dependent,
and forced to call upon charitable or-
ganizations in Lawton for assistance,
John Allen. Mrs. George Wilson. Ed-
win Allen and Fred W. Smith, as guar-
dian for Vivian Allen, incompetent,
have filed suit in the district court at
Lawton asking a division of the estate
and requesting the court to appoint a
receiver to see that the property is
properly looked after.
Okmulgee has passed an ordinance

"I make no promises except such as I can and will perform.
"I will make a thorough investigation of every charge of 'theft '
'graft' or 'misappropriation' of public or private funds, and all other
violations of law and vigorously prosecute every case in which it
appears that crime has been committed. Motives of revenge, prom-
ises of reward, or ambition for political preferment will have no place
n the conduct of the office, but law enforcement and the preservation
of the rights and interests of the whole people and of the individual
citizen will be the objects aimed at."
