berltf looks for the bettering of morals generally in Carter county.

he doea before the men with a o ear-cut request for their favorable consider-

The letter of Mr. OarreU to the women of Ardmore and Carter county
The most wholesome Influence that has ever entered the affairs of state
In this country is the suffrage privilege which the good men of Oklahoma
hvr conferred upon women.
Tho women know as wull as the men tiat thtre will be better law en-
forcement. Judges Juries prosecuting attorneys and all tho officers of the
city as well will be mure zealous in law enforcement because your good influ-
ence and help will ever b back of them.
Tour presence in the voting booth and your encouragement and your
help will bo a mighty factor In the office of sheriff of your county. Thero
will be a silent yet an effectivo influence that will lead men to magnify tho
good and to root out the evil until we shall have largely uprooted the senti-
ment of tho west arid we will be more content with the order of things that
prevails In the states east of the Mississippi.
To stand before you asKing for your suffrage Inspires a desire to do
those things best calculated to build a strong moral fabric for our county
and city. What you are seeking for your home I am also seeking for mine.
Our 'nterests are Identical our wishes are the same.
Under our Democracy bequeathed to us by our fathers and sustained by
the blood of our sons every citizen has a right to pass criticism upon the
administration of the law. You have probably heard me and my offce criti-
cised during this campaign. We would net be democrats if wo did not bare
to the winds the faults of those who serve us and may It never come in this
country when the people do not have the right to critlciso their officers.
Eut until you are sheriff of a county almost as large as some of the
European empires until you have nn array of humanly to contond with
that is attracted by the greatest producing oil fields In the world you will
not know the sleepless nights and the vigilance that must be munlfestod by
I would like 4o bo counted worthy ot your suffrage next Tuesday I
would sincerely appreciate the encouragement such a vote as yours would
give me. Being reared without the Influence of a mother It would Instill into
me a pride I never knew before to be trusted with the votes of a few good
women like yourself.
Tou know as well as I that It Is easy to ask for office but It is quite
a different thing to enforce the law.
I believe I know how to serve you. I believe that you will never have
cause to regret having trusted me with your vote.
With sincercst wishes for h growing healthy moral sentiment and with
no ill will for those who have laid at my door charges that I should not be
made to bear I am Your friend
