THE BIG CELEBRATION.

Celebration July 4.
OKLAHOMA CITY THE CAPITAL
SEAT OF GOVERNMENT OF
STATE MOVED MONDAY.
Governor Haskell Takes Radical
Step as Result of Capital
Removal Election.
The slate capital of Oklahoma
is now located in Oklahoma City.
Governor Haskell is responsible
for tin- removal, leaving Guthrie
early Sunday morning with the
seal of his office and going to
Oklahoma City and proclaiming
that city the capital, giving as a
reason l'or so doing that the peo-
ple, by an overwhelming majority
in the capital removal election,
Saturday, said by their ballots,
that the capital shall he located in
Oklahoma City. The radical
action of Governor Haskell came
like a thunderbolt out of ti clear
sky, as no one expected any such
move by the chief executive of this
state. It is well known through
out Oklahoma that Governor Has-1
kell'luis no love for Guthrie or
Guthrie people and claiming that
referendum bills become effective
immediately upon ratification by
the people, issued a proclamation,
proclaiming Oklahoma City the
capital and ordering all state of-
ficials to immediately remove to
Oklahoma City. All complied
with the order. However, the rec-
ords an- still at Guthrie, at least
the great hulk of them, and Guth-
rie has begun action in the federal
courts to prevent further removal.
However, it looks as though Guth-
rie lias been outdone in this mai-
ler, as the governor is conducting
his official business in Oklahoma
City anil it will lie a difficult op
eration to force him to return to
Guthrie. Be is a man of firm
determination and says if serious-
ly interfered with, he will call
out the state militia to enforce
his wishes.
The < 'hamber of Commerce of
Oklahoma City is providing tem-
porary quarters for the state of-
ficial*. In the meantime, the gov-
ernor has offices in the Lee Huck-
ins hotel.
From all reports the capital re-
moval proposition carried by from
20,000 to 40,000 majority. Only
a few counties voted against the
proposition, and these were coun-
ties north of Guthrie. The vote
on piacc of location was three to
one for Oklahoma City. Potta-
watomie was the only county car-
ried by Shawnee. The' total vote
of that city in the entire state
was less than 3,000.
The vote in Edmond on the
proposition was as follows:
For removal now:
