THE OKLAHOMA STATE CAPIIAL g0vern0r frantz soundsthe
• keynote republican splech.
(Jovernor Frantz, at the banquet tendered by the
Bartlesville Republican club, to the visiting republftane
la.-t Monday ftight, delivered the keynote speech <rf the
republican campaign* in Oklahoma. His answer to the
<|uefltion, "Can Rcpub^cans carry Oklahoma?" \va#"W
call and we will' and with this slogan for tlieir battle-
cry, the republicans of the new state will go on to
sweeping Victories. •
The add rem was given in response to the toast "The
forty-sixth Star" and appears elsewhere in this issue
the Slate Capital. As^t is destined to be one of the
principal campaign documents in the coming political
rontcsts, it was held until Sunday so that it would be
more earefully^and more widely read.
3 • fl(^'rpHa G°vernor Frantz has admirably set
forth the republican^position in concise form. The ad-
dress is brief, T>ut comprehensive and complete, while in
the selection and arrangement of the words and the
thoughts, it is a literary treat.
I he hearty reception given this keynote speech at-
tested its merits. It brought forth many enthusiastic
cheers frotn those who had the good fortune to hear it
delivered at Bartlesville, and Governor Kraut/, was com-
plimented 011 all sides.
I he new stato is republican. - It is republican be-
cause the republican principles are right. It is repub-
lican because republican administration of government
has never failed to bring prosperity to this country.
It .is republican Jbecause the republican party is the
party of 'achievement and stands sauarelv before the
country ppon its record, what it has done for the coun-
try, anil what it can do. Democracy, on the other hand,
is constantly changing. One year it stands for thy? and
the next year for that. Its vacillating policies always
bring industrial ruin. It offers nothing to Oklahoma,
-even the democratic campaign committee thought it
unwise to declare to* the people of the new state the at-
titude of the democratic party to the issues of the day
in advance of the constitutional convention election".
I here are thousands of persons in the two territories
who will cast thpir first votes' in the coming elections.
I hey will not vote the ticket of their fathers unless
they consider that, the party of their father? is 4tut party
fhat offers most to Oklahoma. Thev would have Ok-
lahoma rank as one of the broad, progressive, well-gov-
er.ned, powerful states in Ihe union, and foi;that reason
the^' will affiliate with the republican party, the party
which is the most liberal in its views, the most pro-
gressive, and, as Governor Frantz said"the paitv of
the farm and the forge." which is always found fighting
the battles of all the people. It protects American in-
dustrfes and insures employment to American labor at
pod wages. It holds out everything to the younger
voter whq is seeking to affiliate with the partv of tb?
present and the future and not the party of the* dead
Oklahoma is republican, and every republican should
go forth to battle shouting the slogan sounded by Gov-
rnor Frantz, "We can and we will."
Russia should start the revolution without
much fooling if it wishes to retain the interest*of
the reading public.
During the^e hot days people are getting a higher

departed for the North Pole.
Bryan is a poor forgetter, as Is evidenced by his
reviving the Bulivan fight which resulted iu his
deoisive defeat at St. Louis in 1904.
• The democratic nominees in Michigan are already
piilling off the ticket. Though these are prosperous
times they do not feel like throwing money away.

The talk about the democratic party being the

in Michigan. The democrats in that state voted

Vinita Chieftain: "The •Oklahoman is engaged

is a democratic policy. The Oklahoman is confron-

Senator Bailey of Toxa\who has been secured by
the democrats to stump the new state. iseitil] preach

A cotton, corn and fruit carnival, one fhat would

If such an entertainment is to.be pulled off. -work
on .it should begin at oru'e. Furthermore it
should have the backing and endorsement of the
Business Men's Leagpc and the 50,000 club. They
should stand as a guarantee to the farmers of the
county and the people of the territory that all who
attend will get their money'a "worth of fun.
Too many Guthrie street fairs and entertainment.,
have been pulled off by individuals, who had in
mind tly?ir own gain, rather than the welfare of*the
city. In fact people have made money off of
Guthrie's good name as an entertainer, and have
disappointed many people. *•
In the future it would be well for the merchants
of the city to refuse backing to all street fairs and
other public entertainments that have not the en-
dorsement (ff the commercial bodies of the city so
that it will be certain that the thousands o& outsid-
ers who visit Guthrie will go away pleased. •
The State Capital would like an expression frrtm
