CANDIDATES MUST REPORT.
Oklahoma City, April 18 —Sen
ator L. K. Taylor hat given nut
the following statemeni which
will, if given publicity by the
press, prevent much confusion
and irregularity amongst the
candidates in following the re
quiremenis of the law.
"Candidates seeking political
party nominations should bear
in mind that they must no longer
have voters sign petitions to
have their names, printed upon
the ballots. The act of 1910,
amendatory of our primary elec
tiontaw, requires that only tin
candidates shall sign their ap-
plication to have their names
printed upon official bal'ots.
Section 3278 of Snyder, 190G,
compilation of our statutes pre-
scribes what is essential in this
application and since the old pe-
tition law of 1907 08 was again
repealed by a special act of the
special session of 1910, there
should be -no confusion as to
what is essential. Names can
not be legally printed upon bal
lots except in compliance with
said section 3278.
Candidates should also re
member that they are required,
under penalty, to file with the
county election board at the time
they make their announcement,
a statement as to who is author-
ized to expend money for them,
if anvone, and if no one, then
they should so state, fhey
must also UeeD, during their
campaign, end file at the close of
same, a detailed statement as to
their expenaitures, a severe pen
alty being prescribed for failffre
to comply with this provisi m."

this maybe-, it is nevertheless
true that all must, depend upon
the energy, the intelligence and
the humane regard for mankind,
of property, and of law and or-

political writers, notably social-

Engels and Kodburtis, divide
mankind as to th&ir interests,
into "capitalist," "bnrgesse,'

The Great Middle Class.
The tfreat middle class— of
which type the average man is
most representative—in aH ages
of the world, in every form of
government whatsoever, have
b^en the stalwart preservers of
civilizati'>r, liberty, and pro
gress of mankind. It might re-
quire a d^fiiition of the term
"middle c'ass." Oft-time* dis-

The democratic party in 1S84
enunciated the doctrine that
ther° were two elements equally
hurtful to a republic, the very
rich and the very poor. Used
expressive of extremes of socie-
ty, to my thinking it is more
nearly correct to say that there
are two elements equally dan-
bet ween those two extremes--
one believing a few men shall
own everything, the other that
no man shall own anything—the
skilled laborers, the average pro-
fessional man not in the employ
of trusts, the farmer and the
tradesman or merchant who
seeks to do a legitimate business
under equitable laws, constitute
the bulk of the burgesse. I give
you these various definitions
that out of the lot you may come
to what I mean by the average
man, which i distinguish as that
class set away and lying between
the privilege seeking and idle
rich and the hopeless, indolent.
