I hereby announce myself as a
candidatu for nomination for the
office of County Clerk, subject to
the action of the Republican
county convention. J.W.Riley.

Charles Gokey as a candidate

District of Oklahoma county,
subject to the action of the Re-
publican county convention.
whfljn they represent a common-
wealth far superior to many
which are given such privileges.
But there is one thing certain,
Oklahoma's future prosperity
does not depend wholly upon the
adoption of the constitution, and
if it don't suit you, don't feel
under any obligations to vote for
it unless it would be to gratify
the desire for statehood from a
standpoint of being on an equal
footing with the majority of the
Owing to the fact that he failed

Governor Hagerman has re-
signed. Captain George Curry,
a former "Rough Rider," now
governor of a province in the
Philippines has been appointed
to fill the vacancy.
We believe that the great de
sire of the people of Oklahoma
,for full-fledged statehood is more
of sentiment than anything else
Ask many people if they are or
are not in favor of adopting the
constitution as propounded by
.the constitutional convention and
they will say, "My goodness,
yes, if we turn down this consti-
tution we never will have another
chance to get statehood."
Now, we are just as enthusias-
tic over the future of Oklahoma
as anyone. We believe that Ok-
lahoma has the earmarks of the
most prosperous municipality in
the United States. But why all
this great cry for statehood?
Some people seem to think that
fhe entire future of the territory
depends upon whether or not we
are privileged to call ourselves a
state' Just stop and think a
moment. In what material way
will statehood benefit us? Will
we be enabled to raise bigger
crops? Can we sell them for
more? Won't we be compelled
to work just as steadily and at
just the same wages as hereto-
fore? Then tell us how, under
statehood, we will be any better
off from a material standpoint.
Some may argue that we will
then be better enabled to regu-
late railroad rates, as such legis-
lation now must be approved by
congress, but we are certain that
congress will not oppose any
measure bearing upon frieght
rates that is within reason. We
believe it easier, too, for corpor-
ations to gain control of a state
legislature than of the national
As before said, we believe the
subject of statehood for Oklaho-
ma is mostly sentiment. How-
ever, it is a good sentiment, and
is a desire that the people of Ok-
lahoma deserve to be gratified in.
That Oklahoma has been kept
out of the Union so long is a pos-
itive injustice and is the direct
result of scheming politicians.
It is extremely aggravating that
Oklahoma citixens are not
Allowed a full voioe in the nation
Farewell to the Broom
"The problems of the house-
keeper are receiving from the ar-
chitects of houses something of
the attention they have long
olaimed in vain," writes John
L. Anderton in the May Woman's
"The solution of the sweeping
problem is a case in point. In
one of the newest apartment
houses there is not a broom to be
found from cellar to garret, or
rather from the third subcellar to
the aircleaning chamber on the
roof. Every suite throughout
the building is equipped with i
vacuum cleaning apparatus
There is a pipe connected with
the vacuum chamber in the base-
ment in every suite, while a flex-
able hose long enough to reach
to the furthest corner of every
room is supplied, which may be
readily attached to a nozzle in
this piping just as you would
connect a garden hose. The
vacuum is controlled by a spig-
got. It is only necessary to pass
the nozzle of this vacuum hose
over the carpet, rug or drapery,
and every parttcle of dust is in-
stantly drawn up into the hose.
The dirt collected in this way
passes quickly through tne hose
into the pipe, and thence, per-
haps a matter of a dozen stories,
to a chamber in the subcellar,
where an attendant shovels it up
and oarries it away.
"The nozzle which picks up
this dust allows no particle to es
cape, so that in all this sweep-
ing there is literally no dust.
Incidentally it removes more dust
than the most persistent and vig-
orous broom. The entire opera-
tion of sweeping might be carried
on with the sweeper in evening
dress, so far, at least, as cleanli-
ness is concerned. The work of
hours is reduced to minutes."

Stimulus to Railroads
The prospect o? immediate ad-
mission of oklahoma to the union
and the consequent development
of new commonwealth is stimu-
lating railroad building. A
large number of new railroads
have been chartered and pro-
jected during the past few weeks.
At present actual work on the
Colorado, Texas and Mexico
railroad south from Mangum, O.
T., toward the Red River is now
in progress and President Locke,
of Abilene, Texas, states that if
he can get the rails he will put
the track in between Mangum
and Chillicothe, Texas before
autumn and have that much of
the road in operation.
Agents of the Colorado, Texas
and Mexico are now in London
placing the remaining bonds of
the first series between Mangum
and Abiline, Texas, amounting
to $9,000,000, including the
branches. It is expected that
work will begin on the line to
Abiline by May 15 and also from
the main line to Hollis, O. T.
A conference was held at Mus-
kogee during the week for the
purpose of securing an extension
of the Midland valley road from
Muskogee to Jenks, now under
construction, to be continued
from Jenks through Sapulpa, I.
T. to Cushing O. T., where direct
connection will be made with the
Eastern Oklahoma division of
the Santa Fe at Guthrie. In the
conference were Joseph W. Mc-
Neal of Guthrie, Jacob Puckett
of Cushing, J. H. N. Cobb, I.
K. Berry and E. C. Reynolds of
Sapulpa, H. M. Chestnutt, A. C.
Trumbo, W. R. Eaton and Thos.
Smith of Muskogee. The pur-
pose is to secure a direct line from
Guthrie to Muskogee, thus giv-
ing the state capital a better con-
nection with the Indian Territory
side of the state. The length of
the proposed extension would be
fifty-two miles.—State Register.

The Ellett-Kendall Shoe is recognized as the best and
most serviceable shoe on the market. Call and see
the split shoe. It is all leather. Many makers would
not dare to send out a split shoe as it would show the
cheap construction. Not so with Ellett-Kendall shoes;
there is nothing cheap about them but the price.
