Senator Frank Mathews served
bis constituents and the state con-
scientiously and well, if he did vote
for the "nine-foot sheet and
cracked boarding house dish" bill.
Senator Frank Mathews has a
food opinon of the republicans who
served in the legislature. They did
good service in the ranks of the
insurgent army of which he was
The town of Hollis is to get four
sessions of the county court of
Greer county a year. If that will
do them any good and tend to stop
their crying for another county of
which Hollis may be the county
seat, we are willing for them to
Beckham county, too, is having
a hot county seat fight with the
towns of Erick and Sayre as the
contestants. Their agony will soon
lie over however as their election
is set for June 16. Sayre has a
little the advantage of Erick in be-
ing a little nearer the geographical
center of the county and will prob-
ably win out.
of whom were democats. They
enacted some good laws and many
bad ones and the list of bad ones
would have been much greater had
not the little bunch of republicans
and the more reasonable and broad
minded democrats worked together
in putting a curb on the fanatic
element when it got too wild-eyed.
Boss Andy Stewart has tried on
the toga which State Senator Frank
Mathews wore with.becoming dig-
nity during Oklahoma's first state
legislature, and has found it quite
too small. On him so much of the
garment is taken up in girth
that a deficit in length is occasicned,
exposing too much of his lower
limbs and givingjhim the appear-
ance of a potato with two tooth-
picks stuck in one end. Mr. Stew-
art has written his friend Boss
Murray in regard to the matter
and it is quite likely that the offi-
cial tailor will be ordered to make
a new one of the proper proportions
for Mr. Stewart.
and Walter Feguson as "Chief of
Staff.'' On one side of the face of
the document appears a picture of
Cocklebur Bill"—vv ith his squir-
rel rifle and cockleburS in his
clothes and hair—by the State Cap-
tal artist, and the seal it a red
cocklebur. Andy says he prizes the
commission very highly, and indeed
he should as it is his reward for
turning against his home town and
county and throwing in with the
county .butchers and new county
town grafters last fall.
We were mistaken in our an
nouncement last week of the date
of Jackson county's county seat
election. The date is July 18^in
stead of June 18. The election for
additional territory to Jackson
county from the southwest corner
of Greer county is to be held on
June 23. But if that portion of Greer
county does vote to be connected
with Jackson county they can
not hope to vote in the county seat
election because Jackson county
will have to first vote on whether
or not to accept the propo'sition and,
let the new territory be joined to
Jacksonjcounty, and it will take at
least thirty days to call and hold
that ratifying election. It looks
as though Olustee will have to
fight it out with Altus on existing
Oklahoma's first state legislature
which adjourned last week after
a five month's aession, was com-
posed of 153men all but twenty-three
