ALWAYS BEEN BEST
The personnel of the lx>gan county
republican ticket is such men as a
j/rudent business man would select
for positions of trust. This is all there
Is to It. Take the list as they come.
Each uian has had special training
and experience in the line of work
that will be called for in his office.
Each one of them is abort reproach,
clean and honest. The traditions and
racord of the republican party for eco-
nomical and efficient, discharge of du-
tlea are behind them.
The good faith of the party Is
pledged to tiie faithful discharge of
their duties If they are placed in
the offices to which they aspire.
And the record and good faith of the
republican party In Oklahoma is worth
while. The savings that have been
made to the county in the years that
have been occupied by republican of-
ficials are the best argument for the
efficiency of republican officials.
The low rntu of taxation, road and
bridge improvements, public school fa-
cilities, efficient conservation of the
people's Interests in keeping the peace
sideration at all. The history of Mr.
Mathews Indicates that his time as a
legislator would continue to be devoted
to the Interests of oppressive monop-
olies and aggressive encroachments
upon the rights of the people.
THE MONEY SUPPLY
*ND GOLD PRODUCTION
Among the great economic changes
of the closing years of the nineteenth
century, the increase in the world's
production of gold must be ranked
among the most important in its In-
dustrial, commercial, political and so-
cial effects, and nowhere more so than
In the United States.
How much further discoveries and
inventions, or the two combined, will
go to Increase the world's gold output
must remain a matter of. conjecture.
Apparently the South African fields
will come to an end. Alaska, for the
long future, doubtless promises the
best of any region on earth. In fact,
its physical and climatic conditions
help to make Its exploitation "a pleas-
ure long drawn out." Whether a cur-
tailment of gold production a genera-
tion or two bence would revive the bi-

pcopln s money .11 point to the way In I m"U"lc theor)' ra"sl remaln eonJe°-

sues of the county CE^npalgn, Mr. Chap-
pell lias recently coverod the whole
ground. He has made clear that the
interests of the people of the county
are safe with tne republican party.
He haH also shown thul democrats in
office In this county have always cost
the taxpayers more than the republi-
cans. and the quality of administra-
tive effort was always legs.
The line of action for i-e voter of
this county Is plain. If he has lnter-
eats to be conserved, either in the way
of property or hon^es—if he wants
mouey saved and Improvements made
and peace continued—he will vote the
republean ticket this fall.
MR. MATHEWS AN
ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE
But Mr. Mathews, whose weakness
has been admitted by the democrat*
supporting him to be his strong point,
has a record that will condemn him in
the eyes of the voter who has at heatt
the interests of the common people.
The assertion that Mr. Mathews ha*
done nothing that would entitle him
to the serious consideration of the peo-
ple of Oklahoma Is not the whole truth.
Mathews is even more dangerous
than that. His public career has been
extensive enough to brand him as un-
fit to represent the people of a great
commonwealth. For his record shows
that he Is opposed to the interests of
the people and would exert an Influence
destructive to the welfare of the wage
earner, and farmer and promoters of
legitimate commercial enterprises.
I These developments have an interest
J In connection with the ceaseless dis
cuss ion among economists regarding
J the quantitative theory of money. The
advocates of the free coinage of sllvor
appealed constantly to such authorities
as Mill, Rlcurdo and Walker, to sup-
port their contention that the price
level of commodities depended in the
main upon the money supply. They
used these authorities to an unwar-
ranted degree, but on the other hand,
many monometnllists seem disposed
to go further than Is Justified by hu-
man experience in minimizing the In-
fluence of changes in the money vol-
ume upon general prices.
The debate goes on, with a refine-
ment of distinctions and qualifications
which carries It entirely outside the
region of practical Interest. Meanwhile
the essential fact accepted In the world
of afTairs is that such a change in the
money volume as has occurred In the
last twenty years docs have an Im-
portant Influence upon prices. It la
by no means the only influence and
perhaps not a greater one than changes
In the instruments of credit which
may. in whole or part, counteract or
conceal the effect of the change in
money supply, but still potent, never-
theless. It is apparent that such an
addition to the banking reserves of
the world enlarges their power to sup-
port industrial enterprise and promotes
commercial activity and sustains
prices. The increase In banknote cir-
culation In the United States since
1899 doubtless served to tide over the
period of suspended gold production
In the Transvaal. That the large in-
crease In money stocks tends to modify
the natural rebound from boom times
and to shorten the period of depres-
sion is not seriously questioned.
it Is interesting to note, in connec-
tion with these theories of money, that
but for such an addition to the world's
stock of money it would not have been
possible for the nutlonal banks to have
in caah today 1661,000,000 against |362,-
000,000 In 1896. and to show a total

says that If the duty wore taken off the
raw material the finished product could
be sold more cheaply; maicers of it
would flnd a world market; exports
would Increase tenfold and more Amer-
ican workmen would flnd employment.
The Times sees but one side of the
question, and that a comparatively
small side; and Its reasoning is large-
ly based on theory. In the free trade
times of 1892, when flrover Cleve-
land was elected and when tho demo-
cratic party Just as it is doing today,
declared a protective tariff to bo rob-
bery, democrats demanded that the
duty be taken off wool.| They pictured
glowing results—more exports, moro
revenue, cheaper clothing and more
work for the laboring class. Whnt ac-
tually hoppened after wool was put on
the free list is a matter of history.
The wool raising industry of the west
and middle west was crlppied to such
an extent that It has not even recov-
ered to this day; exports did not In-
crease; ...e government revenue great-
ly decreased; confidence in the abil-
ity of the government to fulfill Its ob-
ligations and pay its notes on demand
took wings and hard times came, with
its soup houses and idleness.
One thing only of all the things the
democrats predicted as the result of
free trade came true—clothing was
cheaper. But the benefit was lost.

For a herd Law.
Last Monday Hon. IV S Mcfiulre spoke
to a large audience at Gage and after-
wards we drove him u few miles on his
way to Haekberry where he was to de-
ddress at 3 p.
listress of the r , ...
county, where men and women and chil-
dren. who tolled hard all day often laid
all night out on the prairies to watch
their crops from being destroyed by range
cattle. Mr MeGuIre declared emphatically
that he would use every effort In his
power to have a herd law passed for Rea-
ver county this winter, through the legls
lature of Oklahoma. He told me to as-
sure the people of Heaver that he was
with them heart and soul. He spoke of
the brave, energetic homemakers who
deserved protection und encouragement ai
th" hands of the nation, and he pledged
not only himself hut also Governor Fergu-
son to ask and urge the legislature to
>d herd law to project the plo-
front the records. The figure.-
proved that the taxpayers were benefited,
by republican management. Attorney
Hepburn reviewed the work of President
Roosevelt and Delegate McGulre. Frank
Prouty, the republican nominee for the
lower house ot the legislature for the
Fifth district explained the many needed
laws for the district, especially the road
