icm of constitutional liber- K';"""' UHHembly or tin. legislature
lf . .... of tlio Territory of OkhthoinH; that
self-government will have t(l(ly illipBrtiufiy presided as such
Henkw your Inith in democracy
by voting tlm straight ticket.
The Purcell Topic has passed to
the management of a republics
club, who evidently have more cash
than brains.
Travf.us represents Oklahoma
interests. Flynn favors the inter
ests of the sliylocks. Which will
you support ?
If you don't want a negro deputy
ninrsbal to Job you in the ribs with
a bayonet on election days, vote for
Travers for congress.
Remember Blackwell for com
missioner. If there aro any honest
men in Cleveland county, \v. II
Blackwell is one of them.
Webster defines the word "mal
content" as one who is dissatisfied
with a just government and a trait
or to self. What is Aker?
Let every democrat stand by the
regular nominees at tho polls. No
good democrat can conscientiously
vote lor a bolter and traitor. Aker
la both.
If you wish white men and pure
fy a white man's government to
preside over this territory in future,
then voie for Travers, Ross and
Htovall.
Vote for Travers for congress
unless you want to send your chll
dren to school with negroes. Flynn
favors mixed schools. Travers fa
vors separate schools.
A vote for Bolter Aker is a vote
for the calamityites. A vote for
him is a vote for anarchy, Incom
potency and indolence. Support
the regular nominee.
lTi.s incompetency, indolence and
anarchy vs. capability, intelligence
and integrity. Aker is the embodi
ment of the former, Stovall tho lat-
ter. Which do you prefer?
Col. ti to v a ll—tried, t rue, honest
and the regular nominee. Aker
untried, decrepit, incompetent, in-
dolent and a bolter. Note this cor-
rect comparison and vote accord-
ingly. ________
Let us perpetuate good demo,
cracy and the untarnished name of
Cleveland county for intelligence,
refinement and integrity by return-
ing Col. Stovall to the legislature.
He has been tried and found not
wanting.
Ake you in favor of placing your
children in school with negroes?
If not, vote for Travers, Ross and
Stovall. Each is tho white man's
friend. Will you vote for your own
interests and for the elevation of
your off-spring?
OClt UKTIIIIIT.
Before another issue of this paper,
the general election of 18!)2 will
have passed into history—the great
and absorbing questions that agi-
tate and iifTect the people of the
country will have been settled be-
fore we greet you again. It is for
the people to decide whether they
[shall rule the destinies of the coun-
try, or whether they shall be hand-
ed over to the plutocracy which de-
nies to American citizens tho right
to govern their own affairs. If
the republican party is successful,
tho requiem
ty and
been chanted in American honn
as the deathkni II Is sounded when
somo loved one is borne amid the
hahilments of mourning from (he
embrace of love and hope. From
the beginning the democratic party
has stood like a wall of heated iron
against the encroachments of all
parties width sought, under what-
ever name or standard, to enslave
tho onerglos and manhood of tho
American people; it has, in and out
of congress, on the hustings and in
the boudoir, fougln every species
of oppression and monopoly; it has,
in short, been the steadfast friend
ofthe oppressed,no matter by whom
or how, or when, or In what form
it came. This country is today con-
fronted by issues led by one party,
at the bead of which stands a man
sworn to a policy which has for its
purpose and aims the destruction
of the autonomy of tho states, the
perpetuation of a species of legis-
lation which levies tribute upon
the toiling millions for Ibe protec-
tion of the favored few. On tile
other hand tho democratic party
demands tho full and complete lib-
erty of the slates, and all the rights
and guarantees vouchsafed to the
people under tho constitution, to-
gether with its lifelong history and
work in favor of equal laws for all,
whether rich or poor, laborer or
nabob. Apostrophic to this in our
last shot before election, The Lead-
er would admonish and impress
upon the democrats of Oklahoma
to vote for their purtv nominees,
from congressman down to tiie
humblest township ofttce. It is es-
pecially important to their inter-
ests to vote for Travers, Rosa and
Col. J. M. Stovall, and to scratch
no regular nominee. Let it be said
of every democrat after election:
Well done, thou gooj and faithful
servant."
STAND up r H DEMOCRACY,
Tuesday next takes place the
great battle of ballots. This is the
initiatory contest for political as-
cendency in this territory and coun-
ty. This is the opportune time to
establish the abiding principles of
our party in the hearts of the peo-
ple. We are passing through a
creative period in the politics of
this hopeful territory that offers us
measurable advantages, and it
would be imbecility to fritter it
away. Ir he has not already done
so, let every democrat in this coun-
tyshake off his lethcrgy and burnish
his political armor for tho contest
next Tuesday. This fair southern
land is the natural heritage of tho
democratic party, and when we
shall have finished our territorial
probation, we will march through
tho opening gates of statehood to
tho patriotic strains of democratic
victory. Tile Leader urges every
elector to cast his vote for that pro-
gressive, sagacious and honorable
democrat, the Hon. O. II. Travers.
Ho will fearlessly, honestly and
successfully present our rights and
needs to the congress of tho United
States. Stand up for democracy!
Flynn's evasive policy on the
mixed school question is character-
stic of his meutal and moral infer-
iority. lie knows when he touches
upon that point that he is treading
upon the quicksands of oblivion.
This question will lose more votes
to the republican party in this ter-
ritory than all other defects com-
bined. Vory few men are so de-
railed in social principle as to rel-
ish the idea of their children being
ssociated in school with negroes,
'"iynn favors this. Draw tho social
line by voting for Travers.
Be M Deceived!
N. BLAKE,:
A vote for Flynn is a vote for
high tixes; a vote for Travers
means lower taxes; a vote for Flynn
is a vote for a force bill and elec-
tions held by U. S. marshals in tho
interest of the republican party; a
vote for Travers is a vote in favor
of freo elections, separate schools
and that tho people control their
own affairs. For whom will you
vote ?
The Purcell Topic puts it very
correctly when it says the offlce of
county attorney is one of the most
important in Cleveland county.
Tne duties that devolve upon that
office are not ouly intricate, but con-
cern largely tho welfare Oi the peo-
ple of the county. It is reasonable
to assume that one who is familiar
with the duties of the office will
dischargG tliein more acceptably
than a total stranger to the position.

that no man's name was presented

nomination was neither seconded
nor voted upon ; that one J. B. Aker
appeared before said convention
and pledged himself to the support
of the nominee: that lie (Aker) wil-
fully and maliciously falsifies in a j

that we, as its officers, bolted said
convention, and that he also know-

verbal or otherwise, regarding said
convention contrary to those con-

Ed. Leader:—As J. 13. Akersnys
in his handbill, "it becomes my du-
ty to unfurl the banner of true
democracy," it becomes my duty as
a solid democrat to unfurl some
facts in regard to the nomination of
Col. J. M. Stovall Oct. 10. I. J.
Vandever, a delegate, claims that
J. M. Stovall was nominated ac-
cording to the announcemant of the
chairman of tho convention, the
vote being eight in favor of Stovall
and seven against. Aker is mis-
taken in his every statement as to
the procedure of the convention;
neither did the chairman or secre-
tary bolt the convention. As a le-
gal delegate, I claim that J. M. Sto-
vall is the regular nominee of both
the primary and convention.

As we stated with contradiction
last week, the calamity howlers
and malcontents are circulating the
wilful lie that they had challenged
Col. Stovall and Mr. Blackwell to
meet them in joint debate. This is
merely campaign buncombe and a
bare face lie. Neither Col. Stovall
nor Mr. Blackwell has received any
such challenge. The lie is too hare
to go down with knowing people.
A malcontent and traitor is a
dangerous individual—a menace to
our social, financial and general
well-being. The mistakes of idiots
in office often retard and impede
the onward march of states and
counties forever. Don't let Aker
have a chance to disgrace this fair j
young territory or retard its pro- I
gress. Ho would do both and more
if by any means he is elected to the
legislature. Perish the tkought!
havu too much faith in the
Intelligence ofthe people of this dis-
i.f.t him stand nr.
Men, as well as political parties,
should be honorable, upright and
above suspicion, for men compose,
constitute and make up political or-
ganizations; and when these men
are impure or dishonest themselves
we may expect vory little of any
party, whether democratic, repub-
lican or people's party whose lead-
ers aro so tainted, and we shall not
accuse any party of corruption as
a whole, but will say there are cer-
tain matters and tilings that it be-
hoves Tom Perry, the calamity can-
didate for county attorney, to rise
up and explain; and one among the
many is the case of Camp vs. Cur-
ran, now pending in the district
court. This is an action brought in
the name of Camp as trustee for
use and benefit of Mrs. Lyda Pat-
ton against Bob and Joe Curran, in
which Berry was employed as at-
torney with the express agreement
and understanding that in ;ase a
judgment should ho recovered for
the amount of $850 he should, in that
event, retain as his fee the sum of
$lo0. A judgment was therein re-
covered for only $262 and costs of
the action, as now appears on the
records in sail case. Berry has
filed an attorney's lien on the judg-
ment under the statute, claiming
as his fee the $150; and another at-
torney has also filed a lien for $75,
leaving a pitiful balance of $:S7, all
of which, and more, too, is claimed
by a mortgage company, leaving
the poor widow, Mrs. Patton, sick,
helpless and alone to care for hei
half-dozen little children and with
out one cent, coming out in debt to
tho attorneys and the nominal
plaintiff, Camp. Do the people
want such a man for county attor-
ney " Will they vote for a truitor
and a rogue like Tom Berry?
The mere fact that the opposition
failed iO nominate a candidate for
sheriff against George Smith is suf-
ficient evidence of that gentleman's
strength and popularity as an offi-
cial with all factious, and also sul-
ficent gugranteo of his election.
George Smith is, without exception
the most popular officer in the coun-
ty and all want him re-elected.
[ Conservative, frugal and faithful,
he is n must excellent officer.
