Six candidates are seeking the nom-
ination for Governor at the Demo-
cratic primaries to be held August
4th, and at this time it is woli that
the voters should seriously consider
the character of these candidates and
what they stand for.
F F!. Herring is a practical and
successful business man and fa-mer,
who is asking the nomination on 0
platform: "Apply business method?
to tho conduct, of state affairs. Reduc
tlon of taxes will follow as an inevit
Pour of his opponents, Jennings
West, Robertson and Williams are
lawyers who have had no business
experience. West and Williams have
been on the state's payrolls for morf
than seven years, Robertson for four
or five years, and Dunlop has been on
the County or State payrolls evei
What has West, Robertson, Wil-
liams or Dunlop ever ac«omplished
during their incumbency in public of-
fice that entitles them to remain on
the state's payrolls during the bal-
ance of their natural lives?
For nearly eight years the State of
Oklahoma has been controlled by
lawyers and professional politicians
with the result that extravagance and
inefficiency has spread from one de-
partment to another, and conflicting
political aspirations among our State's
official family have resulted in fac-
tional quarrels with all its inevitable
An analysis of the campaign being
made by the respective candidates for
(1) That Herring Is the candidate
of the fanners and business men and
is running In the interest of good
(2) That Jennings is running to
boost and advertise his moving pie
(3) That Dunlop is running in the
interest of National Committeeman
Robert Galbraith's machine, the stone
quarry at Bromido. owned by Gal
braith, who wants to sell to the state
the gt no used In the construction of
the State Capitol.
(4) That West is running in the
interest ol' the Haskell-Standard Oil
miichiue, and claiming credit, for re-
sults 1/1 railroad litigation when it Is
generally known that attorneys from
outside the borders of Oklahoma
brought about these result i.
(ft) That Williams is running In
t'10 interest of tho National bank ma
chine and the state printing machine,
both of which means loss to tho tav
payers and a corresponding increase
in state and county taxes.
(6) That Robertson is running In
the Interest of a machlna constructed
out of tho appointive office-holders o)
the fcrilce administration, who expert
to retain their present positions in
the event of Robertson's election
The Marland school land leases I

the Interest of Robertson.
With these facts before you, Mr
Honest Voter, can you conscientiously
cast your vote for either of Mr. Her
ring's opponents? Herring Is opposed
to the spoils system. Ho stands for
economy, efficiency and an honest ad
ministration. If you waut taxes re-
duced. vote for Herring.
