A DEMOCRATIC OPPOR-
, (By Chas. F. BaricU,)
In the forthcoming election
there are but two propositions
to amend the Constitution of
fair Election Law,"etaoin etaet
the State. These are the So-
cialist "Unfair Election Law,"
and the Socialist-Republican
scheme to repeal the registra-
tion Act and usurp certain pow-
ers that were given to the Leg-
islature by the Constitution.

McClintic Thanks Voters
i '']■ Washington, D. C.
.• The splendid vote given me at the primary, which was 3298
more votes than the total received by both of my opponents, was
the highest compliment I have ever received in my life. This action
on the part of my people abundantly compensates me for my ef-
forts in working for good legislation, and, while I have put in ov-
er one year of the hardest work I ever performed in my life, I
have the satisfaction of feeling thaf every person who is inter-
ested in Oklahoma and good government will be satisfied with my
record in Congress.
I have assisted in passing and have voted for every bill that
will better the conditions of the Laboring class. I have voted for
every bill that will improve conditions on the farm. I have intro-
duced bills providing for a system of rural credits; federal aid
for the construction of roads; protection for innocent purchasers
against infllated bonds or watered stock; eauitable division of
the Oklahoma reclamation fund, and many other measures some
of which have passed both houses and are now law.
I believe that my bill giving to Oklahoma over 40,000 acres
of public land and approximately $200,000 will be enacted into
law at the short session, as every committee has made a unani-
mous report in favor of same, and it. is now on th^ TTnan'"r«n"s
Concent Ca'endar of the House. This matter nas been pending
for nine years and has alwavs terminated adversely to the state,
yet, T Kn-p been cHp to resurrect it, and the entire OV^ahoma del-
egation feel that this relief will soon come to the sta^e.

The proposition to repeal the
Registration Act has'nothing of
Argument in its favor. The
leaders of the minority parties
have boasted of their success in
getting all their party members
registered. They hate the law
because it exposes their weak-
ness, and because it holds downj
the votirg privilege to the legal
and legitimate citizenship of
the state, but they have not
one sound argument to offer
why this law should be repeal-
ed. The law of registration
within the cities has been an
accepted and popular fact for
years in Oklahoma, and the un-
iversal registration law now in
effect, by which the legal voters!
of the country are registered I
will be equally popular as the
years go by. ,
