The non-partlfean conference, held
at Noble last Friday, was indeed a
heart breaking «cene as pictured by
the Democrat-Topic It was intend,
ed to be such, to the political bosses,
and served its purpose.
The Farmers Union, at Okemah,
I. T. hold a convention to nominate
a candidate for constitutional dele-
gate on September 28th. The repu-
blicans, democrats will also have a
candidate in the same district.
Senator Bailey, of Texas, floor
leader of the democratic party in the
United States Senate, holds $13000,-
000 of Standard Oil Company sec
ureties, as testified to on witness
stand by H. Clay Pierce of Waters
Pierce oil company. Mr. Bailey's
Trusts connections have been called
to Bryan's attention by Roger
"How did facts leak out regarding
mysterious trip to St. Louis when
promise of $100,000 from one trust
was secured by democrat campaign
committee and also facts relating to
$10,000 contribution from Jim
McAlester of South McAlester, is
worrying campaign managers." It
is alleged that some old time dem
ocrats that don't like campaign
managers because they are all old
time Populists, are under suspicion

Non partisan Candidate Nomiuated
The non-partisan forces have
placed in the field H. W. Fielding, of
Davis I. T., a non-partinan candidate
for the constitutional convention,
and the only candidate up to the
present time nominated in the Davis
District. The democrat bouses in
this district will please sit up and
take notice, that "non partisan" can-
' didate- :ire being nominated at other
>f rheum j points than in cleveland County.
Democrat politicians in Okla
homa and Indian Territory would
feign make believe that Bryan is
their idol, but the truth of it is that
democrat politicians in Oklahoma
and Indian Territory have never
been Bryanites. In 1895 they de
nounced him as a populist, and re-
fused to attend addresses delivered
by Mr. Bryan in the two territories,
and delegations to the Chicago con
vention were not for Bryan. Nor
did they shout very vociferously for
him at the Kansas City convention
in 1900, and in 1904, they even re
fused to accept Mr. Bryan's advice.
They are simply using Bryan now
for the effect they think the
same will have on the pending
election. He is the only democrat
leader of national reputation thai
they can use to advantage in the
twin territories at the present time.
Bryan's Madison Square Garden
s| eech in New York has wrecked
his boom for 1908 as far as the
democratic party is concerned, and
he will be dropped like a hot brick
by democratic politicians in Okla
homa as soon as the state election is
over. In South Carolinia, the home
of Tillman of pitchfork fame, with
special trains to bring in the
crowd, the associated press reports
an audience of only 3,000 out to
hear Mr. Bryan. In Oklahoma and
Indian Territory the crowds that
meet Mr. Bryan on his trip will no
doubt be large but it will be owing to
the fact of the pending elections.
With no elections pending, we have
no doubt but that the democratic
politicians in the two territories, as
in 1895, could be heard on the street
corners denouncing Bryan, and
keeping everybody they could from
going out to hear him.
It has only been a few years
since Bryan was in Norman, and
his presenne here did not so much
as create a ripple of excitement
among the democrats of this place.
They did not rush to the depot to
welcome him or so much as tender
him a reception of any kind to show
how m ich they appreciated him.
He ha^l been defeated as a presi
dential candidate and the likelihood
of bein? permanently shelved by t'<e
deniociatic party, hj<1 made his
arquaintenre by democratic leader*
in this city of little concern to Hem
at that time. Mr Bryan must be
selected now as a Moses,' >r tiori
purposes in Oklahoma and ti ere
will no doubt be a i 'g lot of f :d-

Dear Sir:—Enclosed find One Dollar
($1) in currency for which please send
the Voice to my address for one year,
as I understand you are advocating
the cause of the common people, and
as they are not represented by powers
that be, it does my soul good to see
and to know of men who will take up
the cause for justice, and fight for it
against all opposition of graft and
Corporate rule. I would like to see
Oklahoma come to the front and
take the lead in the reform, and I
make a motion that we who have been
fighting so long for the party tball be
recognized in the state convention
that meets soon to adopt our Consti-
tution, for in that Constitution de-
pends the principles for which the
People's party have contended since
their first organization.
Wishing you success, I remain,

Sometime ago when Congressman
Hearst said something about Senator
Bailey and his connections with the
Standard Oil Trust, the Texas Senator
took occasion to denounce Hearst
in unmeasured terms. The Hearst
papers are now publishing and show
ing up Bailey's connections, and with-
out much doubt will remove Bailey
from list of eligible Presidential
Candidates. Mr. Bryan, when he
learns all about Bailey's Trust con-
nections, will perhaps drop the Sulli-
van matter and go gunning for Bai-
ley. Gum-Shoe "Bill," of Baking
Powder tame and a whole host of
other democratic leaders can't well
afford to countenance Bryan's fight
WHEN YOU WANT
A Good Farm Loan

Democrats, especially the Joe
Bailey brand, have taken great de- j
light in pointing to Senator Mitchel, j
of Orepon, and Senator Burion, of
Kansas, as horrible examples of j
public grafters; but since the shroud j
was torn off of Senator Bailey by the
Missouri auster proceedings against!
the Waters-Pierce Oil Company, the'
Bailey democrats will go away back
and sit down. Bailey's strongest!
champions are now calling upon!
President Roosevelt to investigate |
Bailey's career and to use his infiu-\
ence, if the charges of Bailey's con- j
nected with the oil trust are sus j
tained, to drive the Texan from the j
Senate. They assert that if he is
guilty he should meet the same fate j
as Mitchel and Burton. In a speech
over at Comanche, I T., a short j
time ago we had the occasion to re- 1
fer to Sen itor Bailey and his con-
nection with the oil octopus and Bob
Williams, democr.it candidate for'
governor of this new state Hew to
Bailey's defense. Bob ! your ser-
vices are needed down in Texas now,
where they are circulating petitions
and calling county conventions to in-
struct state legislators to vote against
Bailey's reelection to the United
States senatnr. because of bis alleged !
connections with the oil ectopes. It
is to hoped that Senator Bailey will

A prominent democrat in Norman
was overheard to say the first of this
week "1 am going up to Oklahoma
City to see Bryan. He was in Nor-
man a few years ago and delivered a
lecture in the University chapel but
I did not go out to him because I did
not believe he would ever amount to
much more after suffering two de-
feats for the Presidency " It has
been less than five years since the
democrat leaders in Norman shied
away from meeting Mr. Bryan who
yesterday rushed to Oklahoma City
just to see him at a distance and to
be able to say; should Bryan ever be
in a position to deal out pie "I met
you in Oklahoma City and heard you
"The Jeffersonian" is the name of
a new weekly paper to be started in
Augusta, Georgia, October 3rd with
Hon. rhomas E. Watson as editor.
The subscription price of this paper
will be $1.00 per year Many of the
Peoples Voice readers will want to
secure "The Jeffersonian" and we
have arranged a clubbing rate at
which we can furnish both paper for
ti.50 per year.
The Non-Partisan movemet in this
district is causing the democrat bos-
ses to have night-mires now and be-
fore Novembe-i tith they will be hav-
ing night horses They have been
doing all in their power to disrupt the
non-partisan movement but it is
gaining in strength every day not
only in this district but in many dis-
tricts through out the twin territori-
es. When the people see who old
parties have nominated people want
a non-partisan candidate to vote for
and are hustling to get such a can-
didate in the field, in some districts
having already nominated such can-
didates. The people are begining to
see clt-arly that the trusts and cor-
porations are natneing the old party
candidates and for people to have
any show, whatever in constitutional
convention they must defeat such old
party candidates by nominating and
electing non-partisan, or indepen-
dent candidates. In the 30th, 85th
and 34th districts non partisan can-
didates will be placed in the field by
