The above is the likeness of the
man who Monday morning took the
oath of office to serve the people of
this county as county judge, H. Tom
Right. Mr. Right is personally
known to many of you, is a bright
energetic lawyer, thoroughly compe-
tent to fulfill the (lutie! of the office
and he promises to the people who
elected him to this office a square deal
and we think that he ia going to give
it. He will he assisted by W. P.
Payne and Miss Addie Blair, who will
perform the duties of stenographer.
In the sheriff's office John W.
Leach was sworn into office as our
next sheriff. It would be needless
for us to endeavor to introduce Mr.
Leach to you as many of you are
personally acquainted with him. He
served the people of this city tor
a great many years in the capacity of
chief of police and by the way thnt
he has been returned to office year
aftor year, it is plainly evident that
the people have recognized in him an
officer at no little ability and we
think that his election to the office ot
sheriff is hut a just recognition of
his abilities and a determination
upon the part of the voters of
Rogers county to give Mr. Leach hia
just.. d^rte. W , pradkt that
John will make' a Rood sheriff and
wish him all the success in the world
in his new duties. He will be assist-
ed by Wm. Brimm, as office deputy;
Arthur Bobbins, as field deputy, and
Lewis Allen deputy at Collinsville and
A1 Dyke deputy at Chelsea. All of
these appointments seem to us to be
good ones and with this capable force
the criminals of the county should
make themselves scarce.
Mo change was made in the county
clerk's office and the destinies of this
part of the county's business will still
be guided by A. D. Lane, who has
proven himself to be a friend to all
in the past. In addition to his duties
as county clerk he will also have the
duties of the register of deeds to look
after as these two Offices have been
consolidated. He will be assisted by
Roddie Cook, Arthur Settle and Miss

AN OPEN LETTER FROM
GORE EXTENDS GREETINGS AND
Washington, Jun. 1,1915.
My Dear Sir:
I have deferred 'til the death of the
old year and the birth of the new to
tender my thanks to the citizenship
and to the electorate of Oklahoma for
the magnificent majority which I re-
ceived in the recent election. I have
done this in order to unite an expres
sion of my thanks for this generous
confidence with an expression of my
hearty good wishes for the continu
ing progress and increasing prosperi-
ty of our matchless State and its
N'i/?nbljc servant, waa ey^r honored
with a more signal proof of public
faith and favor. No such servant
was ever impressed with a deeper
sense of obligation for such repeated
proofs of favor and fidelity on the part
of his constituency.
My sense ot obligation and my sen-
timents of appreciation are deepened
by the fact that this unprecedented
majority was not due to the members
of my own political party alone, but
that patriotic citizens affiliating with
other political parties contributed to
this splendid triumph. I may say
that I carried every county in the
State save three alone, and lost two
of those by less than 100 each. This,
of course, makes assurance doubly
sure that I am indebted to every class
of my constituency for this marked
manifestation of loyalty and good will
and it reinforces my duty as well as
my purpose to serve the entire people
in an official way without partiality or
discrimination. Indeed, I shall ten-
der the people of Oklahoma the assur-
ance given by Queen Dido to the
wandering Aenias that both Tyrians
and Trojans shall be treated by me
I may be allowed to say once more
what I have said so often in the past,
that everybody knows more than any-
body. I do not assume, as some pub-
lic officials seem to assume, that I am
the master of all wisdom. I own my-
self capable of learning and willing to
learn from my humblest as well as
from my highest constituent. Coun-
cil and co-operation will always be
welcome, as will criticism whenever it
Is fired by patriotism and character-
ized by good faith.
With the new year we should all
dedicate ourselves anew to the desti-
ny of Oklahoma and to the service of
Oklahomans. I trust that the horn of
plenty may be. in the hands of every
Oklahoman during the new year and
The above likeness is no doubt fa- j that all manner of good fortune may
miliar to many of you as it is the re- >attend them. With the further wish
semblance of Tom McClellan, who has ! that each and all may enjoy many re-
served the people who elected him so. turns of the season, I remain, my fel-
faithfully as district clerk that he i low-citizens.

Claremore, Okla., Jan. 4,1015.
Editor Claremore Progress, City:
Dear Sir.—I desire to express to you
and the citizenship of this county,
through the medium of your paper, my
sincere appreciation of the support
accorded me at the last primary and
also in electing me to office two years
ugo and to say that I have endeavor-
ed at all times to perform my duty
honestly and conscientiously to the
best of my ability. I invite an in-
spection of my official acts and of my
records and I go oat of oftico with
nothing but the best of feeling for the
mun that defeated me and with the
same good feeling for the entire citi-

NEWS OF THE STOLEN GOODS
JUis. M. li. Ciiirth roc^ivui word
Tuesday night from the authorities at
Cushing that they had arrested 'Tex-
as Red," a negro at that place, with
two ladies' suits and some furs, tally-
ing with those stolen from the M. 13.
Church Ladies' Store in this ' city
some time back.
Wednesday morning Frank Church
and Deputy Sheriff, Wm. Erimm, left
for Cushing with a warrant for the
man who was brought to this city
Wednesday to the county jail, to be
held pending further investigations,
which it is thought will lead to the
arrest of "Texas Red's" pals.
Two bandits held up the batik at
Owasso Tuesday and relieved the

As they were going out at the door
they dropped $500 of the money. As
