advertise booze tn the Chie'taln as the state law did not
permit It. We dropped the ad. And now comes the news
that the state of Oklahoma has bought a car load of "Sun-
ny Brook" Whiskey—the best booze—theChleftaln was
advertising. We d like to see somebody rise up and say
advertising does not pay.—Vinita Chieftain.
THE OPPOSITION HOWL
Edmond Is advancing. Let no stone be put In the
way of any reasonable proposition.
Some dispensary agents are refusing to qualify as they
probably cannot sel1 enough booze to pay rent.
The Kansas City Star and Wall street wants Bryan
defeated for the Democratic nomination for President, but
they can't cut the mustard.
The bootlegger has the dispensary agent skinned a
elty blcck when It comes to expenses. He must keep on
the move and therefore has no rent to pay. And besides,
reut in a back alley would be much cheaper.
The proposition for voting $5000 bonds for a West
Side school house will be up to the people before many
days. Here Is a proposition that demands the earnest
consideration of the voters. The actual needs of such a
building should be the only reason for voting for it, and if
It Is needed we can see no reasonable excuse for voting
Soon after the legislature met the opposition press
howled like coyotes because the democrats were Introduc-
ing so many bills. They stated that our statute books
would be loaded with freak laws; that capital would be
driven from the state; that public money's would be squan-
dered; that the school funds wouuld be speculated In, and
finally wound up by saying that a few good laws would be
far better thai^overcrowdlng the statutes. Now, the howl
Is coming out the other corner of their mouths and they
are complaining because the legislature is going to consume
all the time allowed them; because they are not passing
enough bills and because safeguards are placed about the
public money. But it Is the same cry that the same op-
position put up against the constitutional convention and
the delegates, and the people of Oklahoma will place the
stamp of their approval upon the work of the legislature
just as they did the constitutional convention and the howl
ers will be allowed to continue their howling and get as
much pleasure out of it as possible. The people of Okla-
homa wanted the democrats to write the constitution for
they tooK a positive stand for the people. Next they want-
ed the democrats to make the laws and administer them,
and now they want the democrats to stay in power. This
of course is very distasteful to the opposition for they
have ruled so long by federal appointment that they can-
not see how a people can live and prosper without govern
ment at long range and thro' henchmen.

Senator W. H. Johnson of Canadian county will be a
candidate for re-nomlnation before the democratic prima
rles Canadian and Oklahoma counties comprise the 14th
senatorial district and Senator Johnson has made good.
He Is one o! the quiet, hardworking, substantial men of the
senate and when it comes to demanding honesty in all
legislation, Johnson is always heard. Grafters shy from
him like a slum alley kid from a bath tub.
Wtien the writer came to Vinita In February the
Chlefaln had a contract to carry an advertisement for the
Sunuy Brook distilling company The advertisement an-
nounced "Sunny Brook" as the veiy best booze on the
market and recommended it for both medical and social
purposes. About the middle of February an officer of the
law called at this office and informed us that we could not
An enterprising contemporary has thus traced the life
of a bushel of corn:
From a bushel of corn the distiller gets four gallons
of whiskey which retails at $16.80.
The farmer gets 45 cents.
The United States government gets $4 40.
The drayman gets 15 cents.
The railroad gets 80 cents.
The manufacturer gets $4.00.
The retailer gets $7.00.
The consumer gets drunk.
His wife gets hungry.
The children get ragged.
The politician gets office.
The police get business.
The jail gets occupants.
The man that votes lic.nses gets what?
And the gutter gets the balance.
