cites sec. 020 of the code, and city

asserting that the lead pipe connec-

W T. Walker seems to be a mark-
ed exception to the rule that "a
prophet is not without honor save in

speak in highest terms of him. It

Guthrie, June 2.'l, 1910.
To Voters of Fifth District:
Hon. William T. Walker of this city
is a candidate on the Republican
ticket at the primaries for congress-
man from this, the 5th, congressional
district of Oklahoma, and we most
earnestly solicit the support of your-
self and friends in assisting him in
his laudable ambition.
Mr. Walker is a Republican who has
always been for the best interest of
the Republican party and the people
of the state without thought or de-
mand of reward.
He is an energetic, capable business
man who not only knows how to do
things, but does them; and if selected,
all the people, every municipality, the
district and state will have a business
agent at Washington who will utilize
to the fullest his energy and ability
to secure for the people of the district
and the state the legislation and bene-
fits that they are entitled to.
Believing that it would be for the
best interests of the people, not only
of the diqgrict but of the state, that
Mr. Walker be nominated and elected
to congress we solicit your support in

Dollar Day Saturday
All aboard for Dollar Day. Saturday is the big day that mer-
chants and customers alike have been looking forward to for
some time. The merchants are now busy arranging their stocks
and decorating their windows for the big event and the showing
is the kind that makes a fellow sit up and take notice. Bargains
and more bargains of every description and kind are ready for
the fellow with the dollar. And it is very surprising the amount
of goods, seasonable goods, that will be sold Saturday for that
dollar. Since the plan has started the merchants themselves
are trying to out-do one another to see who can give th
biggest load for the hundred cents and in nearly every case a
wheel barrow will be necessary to haul away the load.
Some people seem to have the idea that the object of this Dol-
lar Day is to give the merchants a chance to unload their old
stock and clean up a little, but a look at the show windows and
the counter knocks that idea clear out and the customer can be
assured that no effort is being made to unload stale or shelf-
worn stock. A number of grocers all having to make special
orders in order to be ready for the day and the same is true in
the dry goods lines. The Transcript modestly suggests that the
morning hours should be used as much as possible by the shop-
pers as the best bargains will go early.
