Sworn to and subscribed before me this 14th day of
July, 1913. H. C. Dorney, Notary.
My commission expires,
It is intimated that the Bullmoose.rs a redoing to. nni
George Priestly for governor. He is' alright we suppose
but we much prefer an honest democrat.
There seems to be a disposition on the part of some
Republicans to continue the split in the republican party
and we suppose its the right thing to do. This action, if
persisted in is a guarantee of a continuation of democratic
misrule and coruntion*
Just after the new"redisricting bill became a law The
Herald-Sentinel suggested that Judge Tolbert might change
his gubernatorial bee that was buzzing in his garret for a
congressional bee, and it looks now as if we had sized the i by the legislature to investigate the McCnrtain disaster in
same purpose and they ;could keep their money and evade |
the law. Are you going to help the trust do this by voting
"no" on the 5th day August or are you going to staud by]
the miuer who goes uuder the ground at the risk of his life ;
every day for an average daily wage of $1.98.
When the assessor comes around what plans he doeth
We take our money out of bank in safe New York Ex-
The horse we paid two hundred dollars for and bragg-
ed upon elate,
Assumes a lessened value and is just a plug^-a skate.
You ought to see our worthless cows. They once were
fine as silk,
But just about assessment time give separated milk.
And bur gold watch we flashed with pride—its glory
is all gone
Wev've loaned it to some neighbor's kid to cut its teeth
Oh, twisted vision we had! Oh life filled with mistakes.
Our p^int of view is strange and new, such changes
j this time makes;
j We felt sojricb, assessor man, before you butted in,
And now, doggone you, we are broke--we're just as
poor assin.—Dallas News Poet.
In speaking with Senator Austin recently about sec-
tion 18 of the mining law passed by the legislature recently
adjourned we called his attention to the claims made by the
miners that the pitch or slant of the coal vein in,some of
mines prevented undercatting. In reply be said he had
not fonnd any of those mines in his investigations and inti-
mated that it was merely bunconab on the part of miners.
In a circular sent out by him and others who are opposing
the repeal of this section, entittled: "Vote no! 'Let the peo.
ple.Krow,"' is a report of a "special committee appointed

situation up entirely. The Judge is one of the smoothest
politicians in the country and you can almost bet that he
will pick che softest job that he can get.
We have received a copy a of little booklet published by
Ben W. Riley, secretary of the state election board which
contains considerable statistical information. It contains
a complete roster of the state, county judicial and congres-
sional officers, the election returns for 1910 and 1912 elec-
tions, suid the vote of all parties in each county. Tts quite
an interesting booklet and should secureimmunity for Ben
TWO "Weeks ago the Beacon suggest the names of three
prominent Cordell democrats as Congressional possibilities
since the district had oeen so arranged that Scott Ferris
was out of it. Last week, however it strongly suggested
Tolbert for the congressional job. Wonder what produced
such a sudden change. Either one of the three Cordell men
named would be a better man in congress, then why not
stand by your home men.
There seems to be considerable boilerplate argument
against the defeat of ^section 18 of the bill controlling the
mining of coal. This dope is sent out and paid for by the
coal trust for the sole purpose of getting a closer and firm-
er grip on the coal business of the state. You know and so
does every man who has sense enough to vote on this ques-
tion know, that no trust or combination ever favored any-
thing that did not benefit tliem^aind'there is no reason to
conclude that their motive in this instance is unselfish. If
you will look up the question thoroughly you will ensilv dis-
cover wiiy this coal trust is in favor of the law as it stands.
There are a number of the smaller mine's where the vein of
coal tends downward and it would make the mining in these
mines so costly t'uey would have to shut down and in this
condition would not enter competition with the trust owned
mines, and the output of coal would be curtailed just that
much and the price ^aised in accordance. The trust might
buy those mines and shut them down but that would require
considerable money, besides the trust might grow, under
that policy to^ such proportions jthat it qiight attract at-
tention of the Sherman antitrust law, and that would 6e bad,
while this law, if it could be put over, would answer the
which we find: "A very small proportion of tho coal pro-
duced in Oklahoma is mined by machines. This is largely
due to the fact that mining conditions in this state are not
adapted to machine mining, as in most eases the veins
PITCH to such an extent that machines cannot be used
successful!." That report backs up the miners' contintion
that under cutting is out of the question, and leads us to
conclude that the Senator's investigation of Oklahoma coal
mines was not very extensive.
