Now how many kinds of a fool
would the State Capital make of
President Roosevelt? An officer In

would not dare to charge htm with

Mr. Taft clearly recognizes the duty
of the President as a "judicial tune

narrow partisanship in connection

THE CENSUS AND THE CAMPAIGN
Of course, if the census return* yet

the majority or It publican newspa-
per* will jump onto the late constitu-
tional convention in a perfect fury.

out with great gusto. Double, s

The injustice, however, of char' i
the convention with the responsibility
of acting upon figures not available
at the time when they were compelled
to act. Is becoming so generally recog-
nized that campaign talks, based on
the census, will have little effect, on
the people. They will recall the
common and accepted population of
many towns prior to the census and
then look at the cen> > figures. They
will then be prepared to *be liberal
with the constitutional cony nt ion.
Th ' census will be a good thing. It
may pinch a little in spots and may,
and doubtless will, make some show-
ings short of the fact . owing to the
dull vacation season when it was
taken, but it will do credit to Oklaho-
ma and the facts will show wonderful
advancement. This is a land of
growth and progress.
While President Roosevelt ordered
the census in response to a desire to
ascertain the facts, and at the insti-
gation of partisan state-breakers yet
he is not the man who will charge tho
convention with knowledge whi: h it*
members did not possess.

therefore, be said to have fallen dead.

SAIL: WHY DELAY?
Democratic party is tihe party
of progress hi Oklahoma. It is the
party thai does things, as opposed lo
those who simply behold other men s
works and s,,f' them only to find fault.
It was the good fortune of the Demo-
cratic party that the people of ibis
great new state chose it to formulate
M" fundamental law of tint new state.
This was the people's business. They
had th© tight to choose whichever
party they desired and exer. ised that
right as American citizens. Was It
not right and in accordance with the
boslc principle of free government
that that party of the people's oholco
assume and discharge the trust re
posed in it bv the people?
Does it mccord with the principle
of free-government for the minoritv,
not only to endeavor to discredit tihe
work of the majority, but to oppose
and obstruct the people of Oklahoma
In their attempt to secure self-govern-
ment ruder the const it hj ion ?
'••The Republican party of Oklahoma
by its present position displays more
Jealo. ay than grace.
There Is no reason to believe that a
Republican convention could have pre-
pared n better constitution than the
one now submitted. It might suit
ecrtsiin Interests better, but would it
s it the whole people better? There
is absolutely no reason to think so.

MURRAY AT PONCA CITY
Ponca City, Sept. J>—The Hon. W.
Murray spoke to « large and en-
th isiastic crowd here on the night
or Aug. 30. Mr. McOuire also spoke
lit re. It had been previously arrang-
d by the local committees that Mr.
Murray and Mr. McGwire should speak
from the same platform but the Re-
p Oilcans took fright and would not
•stand hitched. They stampeded tak-
ing tho Hand and Drum Corps which
had been hired jointly. They also
Insisted on holding the seats which
Democrats had put up In the first
place. To nil of which the Demo-
rats quietly const nted knowing that
they would have the crowd any way.
Mr. McOuire and sc. i.l of the local
Republican ca ididates spoke to the
few men ami women who had stopped
to hear what tie Itep blicans had to
say before going on to the Murray
•ting. The speakers, however,
seon tired of speaking to empty seats
ie crowd kept diminishing until
few women were left. Mr. Murray
spoke lo fully 1500 people most of
whom were voters who listened very
attentively and cheered to the echo.
It is very plain, if the size of the
two crowds hot'- is an indication, that,
the constitution will carry by at least
7' .' no votes and the whole Democra-
tic ti ket will be elected by almost
as large a majority, including \V. L.

ADVICE WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE.
Commentate! Taft is a wonderfully
accurate reader of the constitution.
He will strike a fair average with the
ordinary roaster of the ptople's chart
of s i:-government Here is the way
he delivered nis ignorance of what the
constitution contains in this recent
speech at Oklahoma City:
"Third: They exhibited partisan-
ship in tho allotment of tho judi 1:1
districts; and what is more important
than any otihei*. th . have reduced the

Oklahoma you have to spend 2'^ mills
to run your schools—and in Indian
Territo y. where they ilu ve not the
system of schools that, you have and
where much of the land is exempt
from taxation, five mills will not pro-
vide two months a year for the educa-
tion of tihese people over there, who
