THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH, 1914.
Agitator Stallard continues to chal-
lenge the earth tor a debate. His bump
of egotism is so enormously intlated that
-ie thinks if any prominent man whom
• challenges for a debate dose not
meet him it' is because he is afraid of
the socialist champion.
A Fort Worth woman took a Shot ai
District Judge Swain in his court this
week, but was prevented from killing him
her gun being caught by her attor-
ney. Heretofore Fort Worth women
have been contented with shooting
their own husbands but if they are going
to make the matter general and are to
cake pot shots at all who come within
range, no man's life is safe.
We have been informed that one of 0..1
republican friends was very much' of-
fended at our answer to the speech of his
hand picked candidate for Attorney (|eu# v
eral, W. C. Stevens, and that he has
stated publicly that we haven't enough
sense to back a jackass up the 'street.
Now we think we have, so there is a
difference of opinidn and if our good re-
ublican friend will come around and
submit to the experiment we will show
to him and to the whole own, that we
can successfully back a jackass up the
REPUBLICANS, THE PARTY OF EX-
And now the circus has cut out the
street parade! One by one the small
boy's privileges and liberties are taken
from him. Already he has to dress
almost like a girl, is compelled to wear
shoes in warm weather, is forced to comb
his hair and is given a bath once a week,
but to forego the pleasures of watching
the street parade! The next thing
we know they will try to keep him from
going swimming and then he had just as
well be a girl, with dresses and curls.
One of the stock arguments the re-
publicans are using in the present cam-
paign is to cry out against extraviganee
in public office and to declare that the
number of employees ought t> be re-
duced. This is possibly true; at least
'udge Williams :i d it was before the
primary and has repeated the statement
since his nomination coupled with his
promise to see that the number ot em-
ployees are reduced and that every
one earns his salary.
Now to whom shall we entrust the
work of bringing about these reforms''
Did nnv one over hear of a republican
reducing the number of men in office'
NATION IS SAFE WITH WILSON AT THE
HELM AND THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY IN CONTROL
Like the people on a ship passing
through aangerous rocks in a storm are
the people of these United
btates. As the people on the ship
trust to the ability ana knowledge of the
pilot, so the people on this ship of state
oeiieve in the aoiiity, the patriotism, the
sagacity and the diplomacy ot that great
pilot. Woodrow Wilson. 'Two years ot
experience has convinced the
people that he is the nglit man in the
right Place. First ,hey were surprised
and delighted with his leadership and
the dispatch with which he causcd to be
chrystalized into law the promises of
ihe platform upon whwich he was elected.
Next' they were more than pleas-
ed when he brought this country through
the most trying diplomatic complications
with Mexico and caused the elimination
of the despot, Huerta and has aided our
sister republic to a peaceful settlement of
.what appeared to be an unsolved problem.
4 And now that the war clouds are hover-
ing over nearly the entire civilized world
and cannons are belching forth death and
destruction, more than ever are the
people putting their faith in the calm,
determined man at the wheel of
the ship of state. Within a couple ot
months the people of this state will have
the opportunity of StTowing their appre-
ciation of his efforts and of upholding,
his policy of peace._ A vote for K. L-
Williams ami the democratic state t*
will be a vote of conffdence in his policy
and an expression of gratitude for his
Work A vote for any other ticket will
be an expression of disapproval and a de-
sire of a change of policy. Wilson, 11
successful, must have the assistance ot
Congress. He must have the moral as-
sistance of the State Government. By
their votes in November tha voters will
express their approval or disapproval of
National as well as State policies.
WHOLE PEOPLE APPROVE PRESENT AD-
MINISTRATION AND WILL ELECT
DEMOCRATS THIS FALL
Many of the people of this country
are just beginning to realize what a truly
great man the present occupant of the
White House really is. America has pro-
duced many great men. Some of them
have been elected to the
presidency, some of, them have failed to
be so honored; but no man has ever lived
in any nation in any age of the world,
who is worthy of a higher position as a
statesman than Woodrow Wilson. The
most trying times in the history of our
country have been those which have pass-
ed since his inauguration. More per-
plexing questions/ have confronted him
in the few months he has been presi-
dent than arose during the previous quar-
ter century. Yet not once has he falter-
ed or failed in his duty. By his wise
counsil and his firm leadership he has
safely piloted the ship of state through
the troubled waters. During his eigh-
teen months in office he has accomplished
much more in his quiet way than did
Roosevelt during his two terms with his
big stick and all his bluster.
We will probably never lully realize
what an awful calamity our country as-
caped at the last presidential election, nor
can we ever be sufficiently thankful for
it. Had Taft been re-elected he would
have been as clay in the hands of schem-
ing politicians and dishonest financiers.
Even if the jingoes had been unable to
force a war upon us, we would today have
been in the midst of one of the worst
panics the world has ever known. Their
schemes were already laid; their plans
were fully made; even the day and
the hour was set for this panic to begin.
But these schemers found their master
at the nations capitol, a man who is the
president of the whole people.
He gave them to understand that no such
thing could be done and if it was attempt-
ed, the men responsible for it would be
placed behind prison bars; and the pro-
posed panic was a thing of the past.
Had Theodore Roosevelt been
elected, he not only would have per-
mitted these theives and robbers >
repeat their crime of' 1907, but lo>
fore this would have plunged this coun-1
try into war. We would have \)een j
meddtfng ^with Mexican affairs ^months (
ago and before now would have been in- j
volved in complications with Japan. Al-
readv at war, it would have been im-
possible for us to have escaped being
drawn into the European conflict, and to-
day the best blood ot America would be
spilled upon European soil and our coun-
try would be called upon to defend her-
self from invasions irom every quarter,
•t is therefore not strange that hundreds
of thousands of people who have always
heretofore voted the republican
ticket should enlist themselves
under the banner of Woodrow Wilson and
the democratic party and should from thir>
time forward be found with the advocate:
of peace and prosperity instead of wit.
he republican party of war and ruin.
Our country has escaped many
awful calamity, but never one so great
as Taft and Roosevelt at th last election.
It has received many blessings but never
a greater than Woodrow Wilson. For
both of which -devout christians should
return return thanks daily.
Oklahoma owes it to herself, to her
m&tchleste citizenship, to the nation at
large and to the national administration
to elect to our putyic offices democrats
who are in sympathy with this great and
good man and who will assist him in the
continuation of his good work. No re-
. ctionary republican should be put in a
place where he has the
least power to hinder or to interrupt. /
demcoratic vote is a vote of confluence
in Wilson and his administration. A
republican vote is a protest against it.
