which might in any manner inter-
fere with the success of the great
penal institution at McAlester to
which I have given the best four
years of my life and which I have
hoped to make a model throughout
the civilized world the time has ar-

the public to be advised on condi-

events leading up to the merciless

of myself by you.

Yinced as have a number of my
lrii'iuis throughout the state that
your antagonism to nie would lead
you on even to the extent of utterly
destroying the efficiency of the Ok-
lahoma state penitentiary and hav-
ing arrived at this conclusion there
is no other course left for me but
to address to you an open letter in
order that your career of destruction
and deceit may be exposed and the
true animus of your attacks on me
made known to our fellow citlzesn.
"You know that it is an undisputed
fact that my office as warden of the
penitentiary has been investigated on
five separate and distinct occasions
during the past four years previous
to the last investigation.
"You know that some of these in-
vestigations have been made by non-
partisan and bi-partisan committees
composed of republicans and demo-
crats and that in each instance rry
management of the penitentiary has
been not only approved but that I
have been warmly congratulated on
the manner hi which the construction
work was being carried out and in
which the Institution was conducted.
You know that practically without
a division of sentiment in Pittsburgh
county and among those who have
had tile best opportunty to knov. tho
true conditions at McAlester my ad
ministration meets with iiiuiuurlfied
"You know that the ministers of
the gospel of McAlester and even
the republican press of that city
have publicly and repeatedly indors-
ed my course and that even after
the last alleged Investigation and
(after your venomous report they
have publicly come to my support and
announced their confidence in my
integrity and their approval of my of
ficial conduct and of mv administra
Once Approved Management.
"You know that for our years you
have been personally cognizant of
conditions at the penitentiary even
in detail and that for four years you
have repeatedly approved these con-
ditions and sent for me to come to
the state capital and assist you in
securing legislation and appropria-
tions for continuing the policies In
force at the penitentiary when you
were unable to secure legislative ac-
tion and that I have rendered you
very valuable assistance In this con-
nection and helped you to make what
little reputation you possess as a
legislator along this line.
"You know that our relations were
of the most friendly character up to
the time I made it possible for a firm
of attorneys other than yourself to
secure a fee for legal services In con-
demnation proceedings and that your
ernmity for me.your bitterness against
me and your attacks upon me dated
from that event.
"You know that in violation of your
oath of office and in violation of
the constitution of tho state of Ok-
lahoma you participated in and tr:k
an active part in the enactment of
a law appropriating state funds for
a given purpose and then became
the beneficiary of a portion of that
appropriation and on April Ki 1910
a warrant was issued t0 you in your
own name from the state treasurer
in the sum of $500 as attorney fee
in condemnation proceedings for the
state which was in direct violation
of the constitution of the state
" 'No member of tho legislature
shall during the form for which ha

Refused to Vote
"tl is true you attempted to hide be-
hind a subterfuge and that you asked
to be excused from voting on this
particular appropriation which
makes your conduct more reprehen-
sible the Incident showing as it docs
that even at that time you contem-
plated a raid on the state treasury
and had injiiind a fat fee under the
pending bill. N'ot satisfied with thai
fee and when later It became neces-
sary to secure the services of at-
torneys for a purpose similar to that
for which you received $500 illegal-
ly paid and after I had been ad-
vised of the provision of the con-
stitution making it illegal for you
t0 receive state money under such
circumstances I employed a firm otli ;
er than you I Incurred your enmit 1
and opposition and from this tine-
dates your attacks on me and voir i
efforts to destroy me. j
"You know that with premrdi'.ai' ; j
design and the cunning of a Rich
lieu you engineered the creation of
an investigation committee with the j
sole purpose In view of securing mv
condemnation regardless of the facts
and in creating this committee you
even resorted to the unparalled ex-
pediency of purposely going outside
the legislative committee on penal
institutions to avoid the possibili'V
of having some members of that
committee who were disposed to he
fair and friendly to me or wh0 would
not blindly follow your suggestion.
You know as an attorney that th's

You know that you have claimed
to be my friend when you we'e
quietly and secretly and to the ut-
most of your ability using every pos-
sible means to disgrace me. You know
that you have assured and reassured
many citizens interested In the stats

ment and w'n vere friendlv to trv
that your personal attitude toward me
not antagonistic and you kno-v

cf the publn.
"You have taken advantage of your
position in the senate chamber where
I could not be heard to inflame the
public mind and create sentiment
against me which could only mean
my political ruin. Your investigating
resolution was a plea for conviction
and drawn with that purpose in view.
It even rehearsed scandalous charg-
es t0 which the committee appointed
by you never gave further heed the
purpose be-in gto prejudice the public
mind against me In advance.
Was Mayor of Ardmore.
"You know that for many yeav
hefore going to McAlester I was
mayor of the city of Ardmore nil J
ihat practically all of the yiiv
improvements in that city were mide
liming my administration as mayor
of Ardmore and as warden at Mc-
Alester I have handled millions ot
dollars and I am a poorer iniu to-
day by several thousand dollars than
1 was before I became a public of-
ficer. You know niy public career
lias been a matter of financial sac-
rifice to me and not a matter cf
financial gain. You know I was
opposed to the Texas lluilding Co.
from which tho Pauly Jail Co. se-
(ii red its contract and that men do
not receive bribes from those they
oppose tlov. Haskell and oilier
members of the board also know ol
my opposition to these contractors.
"YJou are entirely miliar with
the conditions surrounding the Tal-
awandu Heights and their connection
with the penitentiary and have been
intimately associated with those
renditions for the past four years
and yet during that time until I di-
rected public money in some other
clianml than the one leading to your
pocket you remained silent not only
refrained from adverse criticism but
was lavish in your praise of mv
conduct and efforts.
"You know that my one though?
in connection with the stale pe-ii-.
Miliary has been to make it my
Me work and leave a monument of
which the state would be proud. You
Know that the rules adopted by me
in that Institution have been along
the lines of hunianitarianism and
Christianity and my every effort has
been to lift up and to build human-
ity and not to tear down and
crush the unfortunates tinder my
care. You know that to a phenome-
nal degree tills policy has been a sue.
cess and that the reformation of
unflortun.it e men and women lias
been something more than a shadow
.or a dream and that my policy has
set a new mark for tbe management
of penal institutions generally.
"Can't Wreak Vengeance.
"I do not propose to permit you
to wreak vengeance on me and In so
doing de6troy the hope and ambition
of the inmates of the state peniten-
tiary I do not propose to permit
you to cripple or prevent the devel-
opment of that institution. I do not
propose to permit you to continue
your hypocritical course before the
people of this state as a public of-
ficial. I do not propose to permit
you to retain even that position you
hold at this time in the estimation of
the public when your motives which
now govern your selfish career may
be exposed and given publicity.
"I had hoped after my duties as
warden of tne penitentiary ceased 1
could retire to private life where I
might rebuild my shattered fortunes
but your attitude towards me has
made this Impossible. I desire to
