: : TO THE DEMOCRATS OF OKLAHOMA : :
At the recent meeting In Chicago of the democratic national com-
mittee it was decided to appeal to the democratic press of the country
to o;icn their columns to popular subscript inns to the fund necessary to
defray the legitimate expenses of the campaign of Gov. Wood row Wilson
und his running mate Gov. Thomas K. .Murshall.
I!y the action of the convention at llaltlmoro and by the position
Hiicc taken ly its nominee the party has voluntarily cut itself off from
I ho financial support of the Money power and the Predatory Interests.
Gov. Wilson has declared his Intention to scrutinize the mipsf riptions
to the end of rejeiting those which bear the taint of Belflsh coiporate
The democratic party stands resolutely against the corrupt use of
money In the campaign. Irut a vast sum will be required to meet the
legitimate needs of the militant democracy In the pivotal statet wheih
will decide the complexion of the net national administration.
To raise that sum by a popular subscription In every state In the
union will not be a difficult task. The democratic party po s into the
licttle with all the odds In its favor. It has a compact united and enthu-
siastic organization It has nominated n candidate who litis all the quali-
fications to make one of the greatest presidents the country has had. It
bus the swnpathy for the first time since :c' of the hundreds of thous-
inuls of independent vo'ers who hold the balance rf power in the tre-
mendous struggle now opining and It faces a divided and dispirited
In that situation democrats ought to give gkidly to a fund that will
insure the party's triumph In November then by taking the govern-
ment out fif the hands of the privileged classes and again restoring its
control to the masses.
Oklahoma has a vital Interrst In the restoral of democratic suprem-
acy at Washington. There Is a great racial Industrial and comercl.i
Make for her in national victory at the polls in November.
I earnestly request every democratic newspapi r in Oklahoma to
reproduce this address and similarly to open its columns for subscrip-
tions each of which If transmitted to me. I shall be glad to acknow-
ledge. I npiieal to every democrat in Oklahoma whatever his station for
his co-operation in this movement. There will be no limit on the
amount of individual subscriptions. Whatever any democrat feels he Is
able to give be it large or imall will bo gratefully accepted duly
acknowledged In the columns of The Ardmoreite and promptly transmit-
ted to the National Committee.

Platforms declare that the present
taritf rates are too high and ought
to be reduced but if the taxpayers
really want the tariff reduced they
had better remember what hap
pened In very recent times. In

rviso the tariff downward. On that
promise they won. But having won
instead of reducing the tariff rates
as they had promised to do they
proceeded to increase them and

The democrats declare in favor
of reducing the tariff gradually
to as not to disturb the legitimate
business of the country for it is a
thing incredii le that any fane man
should desire to injure even In the
estimation of a hair any legitimate
business cf the country. The
charge so often made by the Stand-

"Democratic prospects have not
been so bright sonce 18112. A3 a
mat'er of fact they are brighter
now that they were at this time
in the year lSi'2. The reason they
are brighter that the democrats
have almost a certainty of winning
in November is on account of the
magnificent record made by the
democrats of the house in the 61st
congress plus the magnificent record
of the democrats in the house and
senate of the 62nd congress.
"The house was elected on six
princiial promises: To pass a bill
compelling the publication of cam-
paign expenses both before and
after the election; to submit a con-
stitutional amendment for the elec-
tion of United States senators by
the people; to economize; to Ubreal-
ize the rules of the house; to ad-
mit New Mexico and Arizona as
two states; to reduce the tariff.
"The democrats have kept every-
one of these promises a9 far as
was in their power. It is true that
I' esident Taft vetoed our tariff
bills as under th econstltutlon he
has a right to do. but that does not
change the fact that we kept the
faith with the people and having
kept faith with the people Is the
reason we will carry the elections
this fall and elect a democratic
house senate and president."
