Ill* YUKON, OKLAHOMA, SUN
To the Voters of Canadian County:
; It has been caller) to my attention
i that a letter purporting to come from
an £1 Reno Citizens' Committee has
been sent out over the state recently,
. and wile it may not have been inten-
tional on the part of the authors of
the same, it mighty be construed as a
' reflection on my candidacy for state
During ihe war, the Commissioners
of the Land Office purchased more
than a million dollars worth of Lib-
erty uonds as a patriotic act. The
tarly part of last year, the Commis-
sion decided to trade these bonds for
5 per cent school bonds. Several ex-|
changes of this character were made
j On October 12, 1921, a proposition
I was maae to exchange Liberty bonds
for El Reno sch<*>! bonds. The board
agreed to do so and the exchange for
$97,000.00 of these bonds was made,
j In this exchange there was no discus-
sion of any irregularity with regard to
j the El Reno school bonds. The issue
! had been approved by the attorney
general, and also by Wood & Oakley,
i bond attorneys of Chicago. No inti-
mation of a controversy over the
bonus weV ever made until about
May 1st, 1922, nearly a year after the
bonds hod been issued, and more than
six months after the Commissioners
had come into possession of the same..
The controversy which came about
later has no concern with nor bear
ing on, the transaction with ih.
school land department. The Com
m! si.rflers ht.ve felt that it was wise
to exohang- Liberty bonds tha were
beaering 4 14 per cent interest for
chuol bonds that were beaering o per
cent interest, -i.d this doc::<ion has
been verified since as all of these
school bonds that were in the farm
loan fund have been sold at par and
accrued interest. The El Reno bonds,
above referred to, are the property
of the public building fund, which is
not loaned. There are no bonds at
this time in the farm loan fund.
With this explanation, I know my
friends and the reasonable public j^ll
not approve of the seemingly mislead-
ing statement made in the letter re-
ferred to above, in rega-d to my con
nettion with the transaction.

The FARMERS are for him.
Mart B.Louthan first advocated depositing
State funds where they would help market
the farmers' c.ops.
He has proposed iht only constructive leg-
islation that will benefit them, namely,
amending the law to allow him to acc pt
Federal Farm Loan Ponds as security for

cause he :s well qualified and will properly safeguard

'Bankers in the northern part of
the state have appealed to Mr.
Loutan to exert, his influence in
amenduij* this law at the next ses-
sion of the legislature as tht' present
law not only destroys the market for

tho'e persons who have already in-

Miles Lasater, president of the Fed-
eral land bank at Wichita, Kin. stated
in a recent letter to Louthan that an
amendment should be made to allow
the acceptance of farm loan bonus
as securitiy for state, countv mnei-
clpal and all trust funds. Such bonds
are a lawful investment for'all fidu-

The pre. 'nt law which defines the
classes of securities that can be ic-
