the election it shall be the duty of
the board to appoint four official
counters who shall be electors of
the precinct and who shall be good
penmen and rapid In figures. Such
counters shall be equitably distributed
from the various political parties
but in no event shall more than three
of them be from any one party un-
less it be impossible to find a capa-
ble man to represent the minority
"The supreme court of this state
in interpretating that law in cause
No. CS39 in an unanimous opinion
rendered by Chief Justice Kane uses
the following language:
" 'The court below was of the
opinion that the statute contemplat-
es an equitable distribution of the of
ficial counters anion;" all the organ-
ized political parlies participating
in the election and rendered judg-
ment In favor of the defendants in
error. This we think is a correct
const ruction of the statute. It means
we take it. just what it says that
'such counters shall be equitably dis-
tributed from the various political
parties.' The language quoted speaks
for Itself and needs no interpreta
tion. In our judgment there is ab-
solutely no warrant either from a
consideration of its language 0r its
context for construing it to mean
that such counters shall be equitably
distributed from the two dominant
The Dominant Partiei.
"Heretofore in the 'appointment
of election counters it has been the
rule to appoint counters only from
the democratic and republican par-
ties. Clearly the law intends that
these counters shall be distributed
among all the political parties in an
equitable way and it is the duty of
the state election board to see that
the attention of precinct election
boards is called to this provision of
the law and the interpretation of it
made by the supreme court of the
state. I urge you at once to take
steps to see that this provision of
the law is strictly complied with in
the approaching election. The so-
cialist and progressive parties are
entitled to representation among the
official counters who tabulate the
voles In the various precincts of
"It may occur in some precincts
that some party is not organized
anil has no representatives and in
cases of that kind the board is jus-
tilled in appointing some oth-
er party such representatives.
"Another provision of the law that
has been too frequently disregarded
will be found in section 2" chapter
of the session laws of l'.tl.'i. A
portion of that section reads as fol
Portion of Section.
" 'And within one hour after the
count is completed the election in
spector shall cause one copy of such
certificate to be posted in a public
place immediately outside the polls
for public inspection and the other
two copies shall constitute the re-
turns. Any person who Rhall deface
or remove the certificate posted as
provided in this section within twen
ty-four hours thereafter or any of
ficer who knowingly fails neglects or
refuses to comply with the provisions
of this section shall upon conviction
thereof be punished by imprison-
ment in the penitentiary not less
than one year nor more than five
years or imprisonment in the county
jail for not less than three months
nor more than one year.'
"The object of this provision of
the law is to acquaint the public
with the result of the election imme-
diately after the count Is concluded
so that there can be no change of
tally sheets or doctoring of returns
after the ballots have been counted.
The penalty Is Inflicted to insure
fair elections if the law is rigidly en-
forced. The dominant party in this
state has nothing to fear from
an honest election and a fair count
and good men of all parties will up-
hold your hands and aid you in
every possible way in bringing to
pass purity in elections in Okla-
homa. "Yours truly
