A VIGOROUS CAMPAIGN
Republicans Will Get Down
Special to the State Capital.
Oklahoma City, Ok., April 22.-Prepara-
tions for a vigorous campaign arc under
way at state republican headquarters and
the temporary plan of organization
throughout the newly created counties
in Indian Territory and Oklahoma his
been practically completed. In lifty-four
counties temporary organizations hiAv
been effected, through the temporary
chairman recently appointed, and reports
indicate that much enthusiasm is re-
sulting in republican ranks.
Chairman Hamon and Secretary "Wells
have been giving their personal atten-
tion to this work and the appointments,
so far as known, seem to be giving mucn
satisfaction. The organization will stand
until the first state convention, after
which permanent organizations will be
placed In the field.
That the forthcoming campaign from
a republican standpoint is to be vigorously
fought is evidenced by the fact that
many public men of national reputation
;ire to t ke the stump throughout the
Recently invitations were extended to
senators and congressmen and members
of the cabinet, and already a large num-
ber of the recipients have signified their
intentions to participate In the Okla-
homa campaign. Among the many prom-
inent speakers are Congressmen. Land's
of Indians; Townsend of ^fichigan; Tyn-
dall of Missouri; Ilale of Tennessee;
Rhodes of Missouri; Chaney of Indiana;
Samuels of Pennsylvania; Cole of Ohio;
McCarthy of Nebraska.
Secretary Taft of the war department
has already indicated big intentioins or
visiting Oklahoma during June and will
probably deliver an address In this city.
It is expected also to have Senator Knox
Senator Ueverldge and others in the state
during the campaign.

Oklahoma's Rich Domain
The following extracts are from th?
"Chicago Bonds and Mortgges," written
by W. M. Bronson, of this citv, on
"Kami Loan Field of Oklahoma:"
Oklahoma, the Itith atate. is exceeded i.?
area by only eighteen other states i the
1'nion, and exceeds the area o: twenty-
seven. having within its boundaries eO.jCO
square miles. It has a population of
1,800,000 progressive people; J0O.OOO farms

value of the new state in all kinds of
property will exceed $i,0.f ,00 )/t0". and
it has not one dollar of bonded indebted-
ness. On the border line of corn, wheat
and cotton production, pleasant sum-
mers and mild winters, and ;in average
rainfall of 33 Inches, it worthily wears
its honors as the "hand of the Pair
Rapid Settlement and Growth
Settled less than eighteen years
with an original area of less than 3,'.«00
square miles, the development < £ Okla-
homa has been the wonder of the civil-
ized world. From a wild country, without
an inhabitant .the new state has pro-
gressed with prodigious leaps until co-
day It stands in full view of sovereignity,
coming into the union with more wealth,
more population, more resources of ev-
ery description, than any predessor. Two
Cnlted States senators, and Ave congress-
men will be at the national capital to
protect Oklahoma's Interests when the
new state makes Its debut at Washington
a representation without parallel in
tile history of admitted states—and fed-
eral legislation and history will soon
bear the impress of another grand state
carved out of Jefferson's Immortal pur-
About The Resources
Investors who have had an eye turned
Oklahoma ward will be interested in the
following statistics, showing the resources
of the new state: In 1906 there was pro-
duced in Oklahoma and Indian Terri-
tory, 30.COO.OTiO bushels of wheat; 176,000
bushels of corn; 600,000 bales of cotton;
10,000 tons of broom corn; 40,000,000 bush-
els of oats; fruit products amounting to
$000,000, and poultry and eggs amount-
ing to $4,600,000 and in addition to the
above, all the vegetables and other pro-
ducts of the southwest.
There are five thousand miles of rail-
way within the border of the new state.
o.ftfO miles of telegraph lines, numerous
electric lines and all the cities and towns
are connected with telephone system*,
and all these Industries are improving
nd building at a rapid rate, yet they
scarce keep up with the demand,
rapid Is the advancement of the coun-
Very Little Illiteracy
The new state has* ten institutions of
learning under -^tute patronage and sup-
port, numerous private colleges and oth-
Instltutlons of higher education. But
Oklahoma's chief pride Is* in her public
schools, which while at this time are
almost entirely in the north half, still
present the stupendous total of 3,0UB
school houses and a scholastic popula-
tion of 1*20.000. This grand total will be
nearly doubled when the south half of
th* state is organized into school districts
congress having made a liberal appro-
priation for that purpose. Added to this
all the various church denominations an 1
fraternal societies, and it can readilv
he *een that Oklahoma Is In the fore-
front of educational and social progress
and very justly points with pride to the
fact that the per cent of illiteracy within
her borders is only being the same
that of the state of New York, the
lowest in the I'nion.
No Get-Rich-Quick Plans
All the foregoing statements will cairy
eight with tile careful investor. As a
lie, i find that men Willi capital who
re looking for legitimate investments
with a fair return prefer securities bear-
ing a rate of interest that will be p-ompt-
niet when due to get-rich-quick
schemes, no matter how alluring the
prospective of the latter. A first mort-
gage on a productive farm, bearing a
rate of interest that the known production
of the farm wan-ants, appeals to legiti-
mate Investors with live and let live in-
stln"ts. In a way that Itubber Tree" and
like shares of stock, guaranteed 'o net
the investor 'J) per cent per annum, can
never do. What the farm loan investor
wants is"fair security, fair Interest and
a certainty that he will get what is leg-
ally coming to him, and he does not want
This he is absolutely sure of i: Okla-
homa, If the past is any guide to the
future. What makes assurance doubl"
sure is the fact that lands In the new
state, capable of producing with lands In
eastern and northern states, are only ap-
praised at from one-half to one-third thf
value of the latter, thus giving a lower
rate of investment and a higher scope
of 'production to meet the interest and
principal. In this Important ingredient
Oklahoma is a golden field that has only
just been prospected.
Wild Cat Days Past
The wild and woolly days of wildcat
speculation and Investment in western
lands has departed forever. The itiner-
ant squatter with his sod bou- • and
bull, team ha - gone from the advance
of civilisation along with the "jtiffalo
ynd the cowboy. Modern methods and
machinery are the rule ui Oklahoma as
much so as in Illinois. Short courses
In agricultural colleges are more at-
tractive than shor^ terms in jail and
cattle Improvement bus taken the place
of cattle stealing.
I.f Is as safe. schools as plentiful,
farms as productive and conditions gen-
erally are as satisfactory in Oklahoma
as in any state in the I'uloti. Statehood
will be tho cornerstone of the new com-
monwealth. and with its coming, will
come thai security and permanency that
is so attractive and alluring to the in-
vestor Thes1 conditions ate now ob-
taining in Oklahoma.
Indian Territory Interests
While Oklahoma presents these valuable
assets, Indian Territory, when the re-
strictions ire removed from the larv,"
ureas of land that are now practically
under the dominion of the Interior def>a."t_

out acquainting himself with the distinctive taste
of SCHNAPPS Tobacco, which has the cheering
qualities that gratify his desire to chew, and at
less expense than cheap tobacco.
SCHNAPPS has been advertised in this
paper so that every chewer has had an
opportunity to get acquainted with the.
facts and know that drugs are not used
to produce the cheering quality found in
the famous Piedmont country flue-cured
tobaccos, and that SCHNAPPS is what he
ought to chew. Still there are chewers
who accept other and cheaper tobaccos
that do not give the same pleasure.
Some day they'll get a taste of the real
Schnapps—they'll realize what enjoyment
they've missed by not getting SCHNAPPS
long ago—then they'll feel like kicking
SCHNAPPS is sold everywhere in 5

pensation on his investment.
Farm Loan Conditions
Like the scriptural wedding feast. I
hav, reserved the "best . wine" for the
closing. Oklahoma presents a condition
in farpi loan Investments that is unequal-
ed in the United States. It Is this: Fore-
closures are practically unknown. Search
the columns of the newspapers and one
will rarely find that familiar legal no-
tice, so conspicuous in most of the other
western states, headed. "Mortgage Sale."'
The few exceptions prove the rule, and
Investigation of the lonely cases dis-
closes that they are generally the result
of mortgages that have been taken to
secure the payment of land, and where
the sum paid down has been practically
an Insignificant amount.
Loans made by eastern capitalists un-
der the direction and supervision of rep-
utable local agents, are as promptly paid,
both interest and principal, .as Interest on
approved municial securities.
Borrowers Pay Promptly
In fact, thousands of cases are of rec-
ord where borrowers have taken advan-
tage of the clause permitting them tv>
pay the principal at any interest payment
time after one year, and have cancellc I
their indebtedness long before the lull
time stated in the obligation.
In conversation with one of the oldest
and most reliable loan agents in eastern
oklahoma he assured me that In the six-
teen years he had been loaning money
in the territory he had never,had t< fore-
close a single mortgage. The old joKa
of the east that more farmers were
struck by lightning than ever paid « fT the
mortgage on their farm, la not true of
Chance For Investment
Briefly I have attempted to outline
some of the many features that the fif-
ty-sixth state presents to intelligent in-
vestors. l have attempted no exaggera-
tion-that Is unnecessary. The statisti-
cal facts presented are matters of record,
and the roseate view | take of the future
is fully justified by past results.
There can be no better or safer in-
vestment for capital than In Oklahoma
first farm mortgages. Land values are
constantly enhancing, and will continue
on the upward scale for years to come.

The Value and importance ol Ethical Remedies.
Remedies which physicians sanction for family use, as they act most beneficially ind
are gentle yet prompt in effect, and, called othical, because they are of
Known Excellence and Quality and ol Known Component Parts.
Io gain the full donfidence of tho \\ cll-.lnformed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known to and
approved by them, anil, therefore, the California Fig Syrup Company has published for many
years past in its advertisements and upon every package a full statement thereof. The per-
fect purity and uniformity of product which they demand in a laxative remedy of an ethical
character are assured by the California Fig Syrup Company's original method of manufacture,
known to the Company only.
I here are other ethical remedies approved by physicians, but the product of
the California Fig Syrup Company possesses the advantage over all other family laxatives
that ii cleanses, sweetens and. relieves the internal organs on" which it acts, without
disturbing the natural functions or any debilitating after effects and without having ,to
increase the quantity from time- to time.
this valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of l'igs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-informed of the world to be the be-t of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Svrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna, as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtlessly it will always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs; and to get its beneficial effects,
always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company—California Fig Syrup Co.—
plainly printed on the- front of every package, whether you simply call for Svrup
of Figs, or by the full name, Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, as Syrup- of Figs
and Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig
Syrup Company, and the same heretofore known by the name, Syrup of Figs, which
has given satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists
throughout the United States in original packages of one siic only, the regular price
of which is fifty cents per bottle- . •
^livery bottle is sold under the general guafantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, I). the remedy is not adulterated or mis-
branded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June ■50th, 1906.
