"Yes, prospects for Democratic j

Geo. Hutto, while searching |'!
an old coat owned by his father,
who died last February, found
a pass book containing twenty
$10 bills. This occurred at Still-
water, Oklahoma., last week.
"The Transcript is correct in
stating I will preach an obituary
sermon after the election, but 1
hope and trust it will be that of

says the Rev. Geo. W. Taft.
Now, isn't that too bad.
The Democrats of Oklahoma
are arranging for a big slush
fund in 1912. Every office hold-
er has been assessed three per
cent of his annual salary, and as
few of them get less than $1000
and many of them from $3000 to
$5000, a fund of $150,000 will be
raised. Let the People Rule!

THE LOCAL OPTION MATTER.
The liquor men of the state
are getting ready to spring an-
other election in Oklahoma on
the Prohibition Question; schem-
ing along "local option" lines.
In the opinion of the Tran-
script it is the duty of the con-
servative voters of the state to
refuse to sign petitions for this
election, for such election would
be not only expensive, but use-
There is not a sintilla of doubt
that the sentiment in Oklahoma
is for Prohibition, and that that
sentiment is constantly growing.
Take Norman, for instance.
The manner in which anti-liquor
laws have been enforced in this
city has proven that they can be
enforced and, when enforced,
are of incalculable benefit to the
community. On a straight vote
in Norman, four-fifths of the
voters would now declare in
favor of prohibition.
And the sentiment in favor of
it is growing in the larger cities,
too. Old-timers tell us they nov;
have to hustle like the very Old
Harry to get a drink even in Ok-
east are declaring that Harmon
President Taft at Chicago i stock is booming, and that he
last week: "They tell us there is will be nominated by the Demo-
•i mm co i r crats on a conservative plat-
aposibility ot Republican dt form. They declare that this
next year. All right. If the | j,ag been brought about by the
"Big Business" interests, who
have fallen out with President
Taft because he proposes to en-
force the law against them. The
same papers predict the Repub
licans will adopt a "progressive'
platform at Chicago, upon which
Mr. Taft will stand with both
feet, with a progressive running
Mr. J. B. Koons, who was
postoffice inspector in this dis-
trict some years ago, has been
appointed superintendent of sal-
aries and allowances at Wash-
ington at a salary of $4,000.
The Norman postoffice was the
first one he inspected by him-
self. He had frequently assist-
ed other inspectors in inspections
of large postoffices, but the Nor-
man office was his first individ-
ual experience. We remember
him as a kindly gentleman, and
very efficient, and are glad to
note his deserved promotion.
After all, Maine went Prohibi-
tion at the election last Sep-
tember. The returns as com-
piled by the state election board
seemed to show a majority of 26
for liquor, but a revision of the
figures gave a reversal of these
figures and the final' result is
declared to be 769 for prohibition;
against the repeal of the prohi-
bition law now in force in that
state. The liquor interests de-
clare another election will be
held on the question next Sep-
people of the United States
desire to take the reins of govern-
ment from the only party that
has ever been able to do things,
the real Progressive Party, the
upbuilding party of progress and
plenty, it is their privilege to
Certainly it is their "privilege."
But such talks as this from Pres-
ident Taft will make the people
sit up and take notice, It will
make them think; and when
they begin to think there can be
no doubt of the resuit. They will
not go back to the soup-houses
Commenting o n Tuesday's
elections the Oklahoman says:
"Nothing in the results con be
interpreted as diminishing the
democratic victory in th national
campaign next year." Emient-
ly correct. "Prospects" that
are almost to the vanishing point
at best can hardly be ''di t inish-
