Thr.t Hughes und Fairbanks have a
good chance to carry tho state Is nd-
mlttod even in Iie-nocratic circles.
After the legislature-.
At least four Republican congress-
men will be eleeteii this fall. The
Republicans confidently expect to se-
cure control of tho state legislature
and thereby break up the political
muchino that has cursed Oklahoma
for many moons. "Iiok at your lax
receipt" Is the slogan of the b gisla-
tlve candidates and If they are elected
tboy are pledged to th-3 enactment of
fair laws that will reduce taxes and
bring about a rnoro efficient adminis-
tration of government than has ever
before been known
Party leaders believe that the fair
election law- will be adopted at the No-
vember election bv a vote as large as
was recorded against the late lament-
ed literacy tent amendment. This
measure Is so eminently fair and so
sure to wlp out the last vestige of a
"machine" that honest voters of all
political faiths will rally to Its sup-
port. It provides for representation
tij-on the state election board by Die
threo dominant parties. j

consideration by the county commis-
sioners for some time and they xxlll
meet this morning lo perfect arran:;e-
metit.s for bringing the convicts lu-t n.
The rock crusher of the idd Port-
land Cement company three m.i.-s
west of the city will be leased by the
county and the convict worked there
undor tho direction of an experlenc.nl
foreman. About twenty-flic coiua-'s
xvtll be used at first.
A stato law allows counties to use
prisoners from the penitentiary for
road work upon application to the
state highway department. The only
cost to the county Is the board und
transportation of the oonvlctH.
Tulsa county has been buying
crushed rock from the two prlvatolx
owned rock crushers located In this
city. With the county operating !ts
oxvn crusher the cost of tills class of
road material will be greatly reduced.
Method More Rapid.
A more rapid method of transport-
ing all kinds of road matellal Is nbio
under consideration of the county
commissioners. Teams und xxagons
are proving Inadequate In hauling
rock sand and cement to the high-
Ways being constructed In various
parts of the county. To take th-lr
place tho commlsslonei s propose to
install ii system of tractors and
trailers. H Is estimated that such a
svstem could move the road material
ten times as fast as the present
method of horse-drawn vehicles. Also
the cost would he much less.
Tho most perfect system of roads
In the intliH stale Is that of Tulsa
coiintv. Improvements planned for
many of the highways have not yet
been put Into effect but If the work
ol' the present board of commisslon-
i is Is kept up this county will have
a road system not even surpassed by
counties In California the banner
road slate of tho nation. A feature
of Tulsa county roads Is the absence
of long grades and high points serl-
ius Impediments of travel.
Tuloii road boosters are taking an
active Interest In promoting better
highways At Ihelr Invitation Oov-
ernor Wllbums will come to this city
next Monday and will deliver an ad-
dress on good roads that night In
the Chamber of Commerco rooms.
Ho will ulso bo tho guest of tho
Chamber of Commerce at a dinner to

While her tho state's chief ex-
ecutive will be told of tho plans of
Ihe county commissioners to apply
for federal aid In building go. id
loads. The national government has
provided a fund by which money Is
impropriated for roads In every
county where road building Is In
Tho distribution of the fund Is
under the direction of the state high-
way department In the slate In which
Ihe county applying for aid Is sit-
uated Counties which are willing
to spend a similar amount to that
asked from tin- government and who
can give guarantees that tho roads
will be ki pt In good condition after
they are built will receive first con-
sideration from the state highway
department. Tulsa county Is willing
and ready to meet both of tbesn re-
quirements and before long will lake
advantage of the government's offer.
