THOMPSON STANDS FOR
Favors Change of Postmasters
District.—His Position is
Just and Right.
Every democrat in Oklahoma and
especially in the fifth congressional
district will applaud Congressman .it
large Joe H. Thompson for wanting
to remove republican appointive . < v
eminent officials and put democrats
m their place.
There is no reason why the rule as
always practiced by the republicans
should l>e changed by the deino« iat -
Coming right down here at home
we have a postmaster who fights,
bleeds and would die if necessary for
the republican party. He has been
in office for more than eleven years
and still hangs on with a death '. tip
His predecessor, an old soldier. wa>
kicked out after serving four years
John B. Williams was deserving of at
least a second term and every patron
of the! office with the possible exeep
tion of three, endorsed him for re
appointment. Mr Williams' own po-
litical party bosses kicked him out to
make a place for Mr Burke.
At the election in 1912 the party for
which Mr. Burke fought for went
down in an awful defeat The voters
were almost a unit in not wanting
the standpat republicans kept in ol
Congressman J. B Thompson takes
the same position that the voters did
in 1^12 and wants these standpat re
publicans removed and their places
filled by democrats.
There is not a good and sufficient
reason why Mr. Burke should hold
the office here for another week, and
if Congressmen Ferris and Weave!
would act in accord with Congress
man Thompson he would not draw
pay for another 24 hpurs.
The office is a political one and the
democratic party does not owe Mr
Burke anything for his services either
past, present or future. Editor Burke
dirty little fling some time ago at
Attorney General McReynolds should
have been sufficient reason for hi*
being kicked out bodily.
Congressman Thompson is abso-
lutely right in his contention and
when the August, 1914. primaries arc
held the democrats will remember
that congressman who favors demo-
crats over republicans for political
The following article is from Oliv
O. Kuhn, Washington correspondent
for the Daily Oklahotnan:
Washington, Aug. 4. Defending
his action in asking the removal
Postmaster Eastman of Oklahoma
City on purely partisan grounds. Rep
resentative Joe B. Thompson Mon-
day disclosed the fact that he is ask
ing for the removal of similar office
holders at Norman, Guthrie, Paul
Valley, Wynnewood and Sulphur.
Mr. Thompson points out that hi
action in asking for the removal o
republicans is not without precedent
in politics, citing the removal of se\
eral Oklahoma democrats from office
following President Cleveland's ad-
\fr. Thompson in his statement,
just made public, says
"My attention has been tailed to
the statement of Hon. Claude W caver
relating to my effort to have II (■
Eastman relieved from further dut>
as postmaster at Oklahoma City
"I have no apology to offer for the
action) 1 have taken My only regret
in connection with it is that a man
nominated and elected

democrats have no claim on him.

issued his challenge and declared war

d In most instances they are
my personal friends and have been

inent of me.
This is not a personal fight It is
purely a matter of political expedi-
ncy I think when the people en
trust the republicans with power that
republicans should be appointed to
fill the offices, and that no democrat
should «sk or accept a position under
thi administration I feel tht same
way about the matter when th ■ tleni
mats are entrusted with power Men
hould be put in office who are in
sympathy with the administration
and who will carry out its policit :> and
promote its ideals

"I expect to request the removal
from office of every republican in the
fifth congressional district who is
subject to removal, and will do all 1
can to supplant such republican by
a competent democratic official. In
doing this I am but following the prt
cedent of every party that has ever
assumed power in the United States,
"For instance, at Oklahoma City
John V Flattery was appointed post-
master by President t loveland and
confirmed by the United States sen-
ate on \pril 25. 1894, and he was re
moved from office before the expira-
tion of four years, his successor hav-
ing been appointed and confirmed by
the United States senate on July 27.
"At Wynnewood, in Garvin county.
\\ C 1 eo was appointed postmaster
by President Cleveland and confirm
ed by the senate on February 12,
1897. He was removed and his suc-
cessor, a republican, appointed on
October 5. 1897. or within six months
after he had been commissioned and
confirmed by the senate
"At my home town. Pauls Valley.
Janu s Rennie was appointed on 0«
tober 1, 1896 His successor was ap
pointed on February 25. 1898. Less
than one and one-halt years of the
democratic term had expired when
his republican successor was appoint
ed. I was a democrat at that time
and did not believe it any great out
rage for the republicans to appoint
men in harmony with their adminis-
tration to conduct the affairs of these
offices 1 am still a democrat and
do not believe it a crime for the
| democrats to remove a republican and
appoint men in harmony with their

Eastman, for 1 can and do now as-
sure him that I have the information
and am rapidly accumulating the evi-
dence which will open his eyes to the
truth of the charges 1 have preferred.
You < an say to the people of Okla-
homa ( ity that Mr. Eastman will go
or Mr. Weaver will be the cause of (
his not going Mr. Weaver cannot
light me in the dark or by innuendo
ami insinuation He must come out
in the open.

by high sounding denunciation of
barges about which, according to
his own statement, he is entirely ig-
norant, escape tin responsibility of
keeping Mr I astinan in office, for
I am in possession of. and the peo-
ple shall know the truth.
"Mr. Weaver cannot hide behind
the administration and escape the
responsibility for his effort to con
tiiim Mr I .istman in the Oklahoma
( ity postoffice It is not the policy
of the administration to continue a
republican in this office ()n the con-
trary it is tht policy of the adminis-
tration to remove them where charges
can be preferred and sustained against
"I am sure, however, that the demo-
crats of Oklahoma do not need an
intcrpretei to convey to tljem the
policy of the democratic administra-
tion. and that it is not necessary to
remind them that I have been to the
white house and drank water up at
the office of the secretary of state in
order that they may understand that
I know what I am talking about."
Pale-faced, weak, and
shaky women—who suffer
every day with womanly
weakness—need the help
of a gentle tonic, with
a building action on the
womanly system. Ifyouare
weak—you need Cardul,
the woman's tonic, because
Cardul will act directly on
the cause of your trouble.
Cardui has a record of
more than 50 years of
success. It must be good.
The Woman's Tonic_
Mrs. Effie Graham, of
Willard, Ky., says: "I
was so weak I could
hardly go. I suffered,
nearly every month, for 3
years. When I began to
take Cardui, my back hurt
awfully. 1 only weighed
99 pounds. Not long after.
1 weighed 115. Now, I
do all my work, and am
in good health." Begin
taking Cardui, today.

There the cool snow-
tempered breezes and dry
air mean comfort impos-
sible here. In Colorado
you'll have cool nights
and refreshing sleep, to
say nothing of the day's
You can get away from
the hot weather very easi-
ly, comfortably, and eco-
nomically by taking one
of the Santa Fe's conveni-
ent Colorado trains. Only
$25.15 for a round trip
ticket from here.
Call for Colorado litera-
ture and let me tell you
about our Colorado ex-
cursions and service.
