$14,840,000 was distributed or added

tend our hearty congratulations to the
six members of congress who were
brave enough, in the face of a thor-

Be it further resolved. That the So-

Did 1 hear some one say "The So-
cialist party Is dead?" Well, If this
is true, then the Oklahoma end of the
late departed surely is some corpse.
Feb. 1, about 200 delegates to the
Socialist state convention assembled
in the composing room of The Okla*
homa Leader Bldg. There was a
spread, as is customary at all wakes.
The assembled mourners had an
hilarious time while the red cheeked
corpse wandered smilingly from table
to table, dispensing Joy and good
cheer among the faithful.
Comrade Dan Hogan, being Irish,
had come all the way from Arkansas
to be at the wake. He said so many
complimentary things about the
corpse, how healthy aiwl vigorous he
looked and what a great future he
had before him as to make him (the
corpsc) blush almost continuously.
GERMEIt DROPPED IN.
Adolph Germer, the former national
secretary, dropped in on his return
from the coast, and was struck al-
most dumb when he beheld fhe do-

PLATFORM DEMANDS CHANGES.
The platform also demands consti-

of representatives for the state, county

of occupational representation, in-
stead of on basis of county, district
and precinct lines. This Is the first
time that such a demand has been

party in the United States.
The constitution adopted by the
state council also recognizes the
changed condition. Locals have ceased
to function. The new constitution
provides that every member becomes
