The Stroud Democrat says
that the correct way for any
one to ascertain the identity
of the editor of that sheet,
is to go the Democrat office
and start something.
The Chandler Review is
now boasting a circulation
of 792 copies. Since the
Review camel has succeeded
in getting its head into the
Chandler newspaper situa-
tion, there seems to be some
ground for fear that it will
intrude to the extent of
making rather tight quarters
for earlier occupants.

^ ou are all familiar with the history and results of the lit-
igation which immediately began, and did not end until
November 13, 1911, when the Supreme Court of the United
States denied Guthrie'# last appeal.
February 12, 1912, Oklahoma City voted certain bonds

witli conditions agreed upon with the Governor preparatory
to starting work on the capitol building. Immediately there-
after Guthrie prepared to initiate her petitions for a new

THIS IS WHAT THE GOVERNOR SAYS:
If this proposition is handled in a businesslike way and the
land is reserved fiom sale until th« completion of the capitol is
assured, I am thoroughly convinced that it will realize to the
state a sum sufficient, when added to the (100,000 in cash, to
go far towards erecting tie building, and that if handled in this
way, it will tealize to the state many thousands of dollars more
than it would have been possible to do under the original
the Fort Smith

Vet with such a record citizens of Guthrie have dared to defame and villify Oklahoma City.
WHY VOTE ADDITIONAL BURDENS UPON OURSELVES?
Closely connected with this project for the relocation of th« permanent capital in another city
is the question of taxes. We all know that in a new state like ours taxes are necessarily
and unavoidably high. The State has now a total bonded
and warrant indebtedness of ah^iut $4,500,000; and a
determined effort has been made by our citizenship all over
the State to reduce taxes and relieve the overburdened
farmer and business man. Of course this condition has
been augmented by hard times. Before accepting the
Guthrie idea, returning to inconvenient and inflammable
temporary quarters for an indefinite time, and throwing
away the million and a half tendered by Oklahoma City
we ask the people to think twice. Guthrie papers have
admitted that they expect the State to bear the full cost
of any building ever erected there. Oklahoma City has
fulfilled every pledge up to this minute, and stands ready
to go forward whenever permitted to do so.
Guthrie's only claim lo the capital
i« that in territorial days her fine
manipulations at Washington held the
capital for her against the wishes of
the people; and that the return of
the capital regardless of, the interests
of the state and pernio is now nec-
essary for her future existence. A
state capital is not a tUci that will
by itself make a city. It can do
little for a small toiwn, and f small
town can furnish little accommo-
dation for it.
