Some of the democratic papers are trying
to read Hensley, of the El Reno Democrat,
out of the party, because he kicks on the
statehood plank in the Enid platform, but
Hensley's home people agree with him.
El Reno Democrat: The Washita dele-
gation at the Enid convention wore badges,
the motto of which read: "One thousand
majority for the democratic nominee." Last
Monday at the city election at Cordell the
democratic ticket was skinned alive by the
republicans, but one lone, solitary democrat
pulled through. There is an old saying
which is very true—that the horns of a
Texas steer are always longer away from
home than at home.

cratic newspapers are asserting in a loud
and somewhat angry tone of voice that Bill

Bill Cross, the demo-pop candidate for
congress, is a good fellow, and the mere
fact that he-was a confederate soldier ought
not to injure him as a candidate as all sec-
tional questions ought to be dead if they are
not. But there is one thing that Bill did
before he ever thought of running for con-
gress that is a telltale good and strong, and
that is this: As a traveling man of Kan-
sas City for a foreign wholesale house he
was always honest enough when traveling
to register at the various hotels as Bill Cross
of Kansas City. Now if he had at that time
ever thought of being a candidate in Okla-
homa he could just as well have given his
address at some point in Oklahoma. But
these hotel records are clear and plain and
all show that his residence is in Kansas
City, Mo. Of course the house he repre-
sents will make a mint of money out of his
candidacy even if he is beaten, because of
the immense amount of advertising he will
give it.—Alva Courier.
