State Capital. There are other democrats who
would like to see that tiling done.
It is always safe to hold councils of war behind
closed doors in order that the enemy may be kept in
ignorance of intended movements. The constitu-
tional convention leaders evidently regard the peo-
ple of Oklahoma as the enemy. Wichita Kagle.
They are calling him the ''radical president" now.
Well, he generally does go to the root of the matter;
and now lie wants to reserve the remaining coal, oil

forests for the people. We can stand even that ex-
hibition of radicalism without having to call in the

George Evans, of the Chickasha Express, is a sly
cuss, lie gives just enough exagerated political re-
minders and republican teasers to keep the "consti-
tution republicans" of that section in line, and there
is more of them in Chickasha than iu any other part
of Greater Oklahoma.
For instance he says tauntingly for the true blue

Every time a republican convention meets it

He has of course forgotten the, "I don't know
you! you go to li—1" convention episode, the con-
gressional contest which Grady county participated
in where theft, snap-judgment, gaglaw, bulldozing
and such were charged, and the end is not yet

The mayor of Mason City, Iowa, judge of the city
court, is an unique temperance reformer, and dis-
til.nges every drunk arrested and brought before
him who will sign a pledge to abstain from drink for
two years. Whether a judge of any court lias a right
to do that or not does not make any difference, for
lie just does it every day in the week. If even a
majority keep the pledge it will prove a great
scheme, and the judge ought to rank with Billy Sun-
day as a reformer.

full well that was the political gerrymander reversed
he would, in face of all the advantages to be gained
in the present constitution—the court town and six
mile strip added to Grady,—he found fighting man-
fully against the highway robber.
"Federal office holders playing to block the state-
hood program" etc.
The Express knows how to hold the fellows in line
and it is working overtime on the job.
And the "constitutional republicans" stay hitched.
LIBERTY, HONOR, MANHOOD,
1 he democratic press is nothing in the present con-
test if it is not unfair.
They belch forth the charge that because a re-
publican can not swallow the bitter dose prepared
by a closed door partisan convention, "You are op-
posed to statehood."

The democratic party drunk with its overwhelm-
ing. brutal majority, yet proposes to make the re-
publicans 111 voting for the constitution sign away
their right to equal suffrage at the ballot box. This
is their ultimatum, and yet they have the hardihood
lo say of him who protests at such an outrage—he is
opposed to statehood. A more cowardly, unjust
method of whipping American citizens into line was
never attempted. And it will not win out. Might
does not make right, and right will prevail iu the
The kingdom of Belgium is greatly alarmed,
'"'"l'old is about to announce that he has
married a common woman. And, if he does so*, the
people of Belgium fear that the son of this'common
woman may in time be their king. Inasmuch as
Leopold himself is the worst old roue in Europe, as
well as the greatest rascal that ever went unghange'd
it doesn't appear that the son of a common woman
would make any worse ruler that old Leopold him-
self. In the language „f Pope, "his ignoble blood
has crept through geroundrels sinee the llood."
They have the gall to make this charge in the face
of the fact that it was a republican congress
that passed the enabling act, making it possible to
They have the gall to make this statement in the
tace of the fact that it was was republicans who
made the long light for statehood.
1 he fact is they have the gall of the devil himself
when they insinuate for one moment that any re-
publican is opposed to statehood.
All republicans are anxious for statehood but not
to that extent that they will sacrific manhood, honor
and principle to gain it.
Subjugation and disfranchisement used upon
the man of honor and independence receives the
"eserved response of contempt and hatred.
Thus it is that the answer to the charge of "oppo,
sition to statehood" must be.framed.
Liberty, honor, manhood, principle—statehood.
