South Coffeyville, Okla. Over a quarter of a million dollars of railroads and not one dollar of landed indebtedness. The
Missouri Pacific, Iron Mountain and M., K. & T. Railroads now in operation, the Santn Fe Railroad now in operation within
eight blocks of the new town, soon to be extended to the Union Depot site. The completion of fihe proposed Coffeyville &
Memphis Railroad will give the new town, South Coffeyville, Okla.. five big trunk lines, with Union Depot for railroads. With
such railroad facilities the new town will soon become the greatest railroad center in the South wes/., and lots m the very heart

The same is true of hundreds of cities and towns divided
by State lines, with separate government in each State; the
same will be true of South Coffeyville, Okla., the new town

and Tom Latta, editor of the Tulsa
Dally World, the only two newspaper
men In the state who take pride In
their red hair, are alike in their de-
nunciation of the Taylor "ribbon bal-
lot" election law and in their desire
to see the intelligent voters of the
state, whatever their political affilia-
. tions, swat it at the polls. Governor
I Ferguson says ,the law should be
passed up to the people by all means
before It gets on the statute books
and he has sufficient confidence li-

"The new election law makes llle-

It invites them for partisan purposes
by failing to prvoide a penalty there-
I for," says Tom Latta. "The law is
objectionable because in whole and In
detail it is the most unfair, despotic
election law ever placed vm the statute
books of any state."
"Despite all that is being said on
the subject by the state administra-
tion," continues Latta, "the ract re-
mains that there was no crying need
