A single month has hardly elapsed
since the Republicans of Oklahoma by
excluding negroes from county and
atate conventiona declared to the
world that the negro is incapable of
self government and unworthy of par-
ticipating in government. The pBea
of the negro for representation on the
state delegation to the national con-
vention was brusquely denied, and
sable sons of the Soutih were Informed
that the white Rippubllcafts of Okla-
homa do net need the negro in politi-
cal conventions. But within two
weeks a change has come over the
spirit of republican dreams and the
negro becomes once -more the object
of keenest republican solicitude. A

front page, in glaring r«*d headlines,
this anarchistic sheet vociferously de-
nied the report that it was about to

AND HARD TIMES
"Hard times" is certainly an ex-
pression out ranking every 'othpr one
known to the English language, in its
broad use and application to cover a
multitude of sins. Individuals have
hard times; companies and associa-
tions also are similarly afflicted.
Municipalities are npt exempt, for in
last week's Sayre's papers public mass
meetings were spoken of which had
met and resolved concerning
some of the perplexing questions aris-
ing in the capital of our nortibern
neighbor. In short, their light and
water plant was not operating sat-
isfactory from a financial point of
view; their city authorities had eith-
er reached their rows' end, or had
called in the public for consultation.
A citizen's committee reported to
either lease the light and water plant
or else- adopt a commission form of
.government for the city's future con-
Municipal ownership of public util
ities is being put to a serious test in
many of the Wlestern towns and cities
at the present time. Altus is trying to
let go her light plant, and after hav
ing spent large sums of money try-
ing to get water, is as far from the
goal as ever. Sayre now comes and
frankly admits that her light and
water plant is a white elephant on
her hands. Hobart has sounded wa-
ter troubles time after time and Man-
gum's water plant, possibly the best
in all Oklahoma, is being conducted
at a financial loss.
"Public ownership of public utili-
ties," ia a high-sounding, well wor-
ded, ear-pleasing phrase, but as to
practical operation, you will find just
about nine failures where you will
find one successful case. It is easy
however, to find men wtho contend
that public ownership Is the broad
road to certain success and the only
way to solve many of the larger 'econ-
omic problems of the present day.

Mr. Shipley is no stranger to the
people of Greer county, nor is he a
new comer or tenderfoot in this sec-

with tihe pioneers of Southwest Okla-

his adopted country; nor has he ever

many excellent advantages peculiar
to this section.
For years he tilled the soil in what

"UNCLE" JOE FRAZIER FOR CO.
COMMISSIONER PRECINCT 3.
In November, 1890, Mr. J. P. Frazier
left his old Parker County, Texas,
home to find newer and greener fields
in the boundless and promising west.
He landed in Greer county and drove
his stake on Station Creek twenty-
odd miles nortihwest of Mangum.
Since that time he has been one of the
county's best and most honorable citi-
zens, a friend to all and a supporter
of every worthy cause. ,
Uncle Joe is now sixty three years
of age and was never before guilty of
the crime of running for offlce—if a
crime it is. Hie has in the past been
content to pay his taxes, support the
government and let the other fellow
hold the office, and would really be
content to do so yet but his old neigh-
bors and friends who have known ihim
so long and honor him so highly, have
so urgently importuned him to enter
the race for Commissioner of district
three that he cannot longer withstand
their solicitations. He believes in
economy; is a close student of public
affairs; and fully qualified to conduct
the duties of this office.
He fully realized that the business
affairs of Greer county are more intri-
cate and important and will require
a greater amount cf thought and earn-
est calculation tlhan those of any
single individual in the county and
to conduct them properly one must
be willing to give freely his time and
Uncle Joe is a democrat and will
be subject to the action of the party
at the coming democratic primary at
which time he asks that you give his
candidacy your earnest consideration.

Oklahoma, Sunday afternoon, where
he has been teaching bookkeeping in
