cor District Judge
tVo present the name of Hon. H. E.
at. Clair, of Noble county, as a can-
didate for the nomination for District
Judge, subject to the republican vote
at the primary, Aug. 2, 1910.
We are authorized to announce the
name of L. J. Burkhalter of Black-
well township, as a candidate for
county commissioner for the third
commissioner district, subject to the
"111 of the republican voters of the
district at the primary. Aug 2, 1910.
The republican party of Oklahoma
realizes its opportunities and also its
responsibilities. The party knows
that the democratic administration
lias been tried and found wanting,
and that In retiring from office it will
leave ruin in some departments and
chaos in others. To accomplish any
good for the state out of such condi-
tions the republicans must select only
men of unquestioned capacity for
work, men of training, and men of
probity. It will be no child's play
to put Oklahoma on a business basis,
and we must choose full grown men
for each position. If we will do that,
and can convince the voters of the
singleness of purpose of such can-
didates. they will be elected, for the
people are ripe for revolt against ma-
chine politics, nnd are In favor of a
The Oklahoma Retailers As-
sociation, headquarters Okla-
homa-City, announces that
there will be a strong delega-
tion from Oklahoma in attend,
anceatthe National Retailers
convention, which meets in
Springfield, HI., this week.
The Oklahoma retailers have
the most perfect organization
of any state and are in the
movement to help make it what
in should be, that is a protec-
tion not only for the retailer
but for his honest customer as
well. They have many impor-
tant measures up for discussion
and settlement in the National
convention and Oklahoma will
propose some of the most pro-
gressive of those measures.
John Golobie has ;tn article iu his
issue in the Guthrie Register of May
5 that is intended to he harmful to
Bird McGuiie, but it is so extrava-
gantly unfair, that it will undoubt-
edly fab of its purpose. After a
• wing around thp circle In interest
of his own candidacy, he makes a re-
sume of conditions a, he found them
as to Mr. McGuire's strength. He
says that there are two strong men
for him. at Ponca City; that there
are hut two real strong men at
Blackwell for McGuire, We honest
iy believe that Mr. McGuire will
carry Blackwell at the primaries,
and if he does Mr. Golobie's estimate
is putting a lot of us in the weak
class, If there are but two strong
men for him in this city We have it
on reasonably good authority, that
Mr. McGuire will get an even break
In Ponca City. What do you think
of a candidate who will thus misrep-
resent the strength of another can-

The Hon. Lee Cruce, a candidate
for the democratic nomination for
govrnor, was in the city, Tuesday of
this week, and proved to be an attrac-
tion in spite of the Wichita Booster
crowd occupying the center of the
stage. Mr. Cruce made the cam-
paign for the nomination three years
ago, and at that time made the ac-
quaintance of a number of our citi-
zens, and Tuesday he renewed the
acquaintance and met many new
friends. Mr. Cruce is one of the ca-
pable men of the democratic party
and would make them a strong can-
date, but we do not believe that he
can come any nearer being nominated
than lie did three years ago. He ad-
dressed a nice crowd at the city hall
in the afternoon and spent the most
of the time apologizing for the Has-
kell administration and denying the
statements made here by Mr. McNeal
regarding the extravagance of the
Haskell administration. Mr. Cruce
thinks that the credit of the state is
being injured by such statements as
those made by Mr. McNeal, but we
rather think that lie knows that the
credit of the state, or at least the ref-
utation of some of its officials, was
not above suspicion. long before Mr.
McNeal commenced his campaign.
Mr. Cruce is an afTable gentleman,
and will, we believe, be stronger with
his party than he was three years
Republican Committee Meeting
There will be a meeting of the re-

Loyal Sons Bible Class
The Loyal Sons Bible class of the
Christian church is a potent force in
this community and includes in its
membership some ot' our best known
business men. They are at present
about 80 strong, and Wednesday af-
ternoon of this w’eek they had an
outing at the fair grounds. A match
game of base ball between the Boom-
ers under Captain Geo. P. Seabock.
and the Boosters with F. H. Robert-
son as captain, furnished the bulk
of the fun and we believe the Boom-
ers won the game, although there are
several versions, one of which is that
neither side really knows the exact
status of the game when they wore
out. On Sunday, May 15, at 3 o’clock,
Judge M. ('. Garber will be here under
the auspices of the Loyal Sons, and
will deliver at the Christian church
his well known and popular lecture,
"Am 1 My Brother's Keeper.” Judge
Garber is too well known to need any
special commendation at our hands,
and we are quite sure that he will be
greeted by a large audience, and just
as sure he will interest them and in

Our old friend E. Duckworth has
a copy of an old Whig fticket over 60
years of age. It was formerly car-
ried by a brother of Mrs. Duckworth
and was found among his property af-
ter his death. It is both valuable be-
cause of its age and character, and
because it is a family keepsake.

He is visiting the minor kingdoms
this week, and may deviate from his
original plans and go to England to
attend the funeral of his friend, King
Edward. Mr. Roosevelt is having a
real good time, and those people seem
to be enjoying him, but we will all
be real glad when he successfully

excitable Europe and gets back home,
