A discrepancy has been discov-
ered in the vote on the national
ticket in Oklahoma Showing Bry-
an's plurality over Taft only 11,800

plan is on the part of the western

many members until an appropri-
ation is secured for a system of
government roads in the west.

With a raise in taxes of sixteen
to fifty per cent and in some in-
stances even of one hundred per
cent, the farmers as wfell as the
townspeople of Oklahoma will soon
learn what it means to pay taxes

tion. Tax-paying time hits the
pocket-book hard when' democrats
are in power.
What a magnificent additional
state machine was overlooked by
the democrats in the First State
Legislature in building their school

and today will hear argument on
the two sides of the question as
to whether or not the present town
of Looney shall have a school. A
railroad is supposed to be building
which will run three miles north
of the present townsite and as the
railroad refuses to go to the town
i perhaps the town may go to the
railroad, in which event a large

townsite would be an elephant on

It was not dover nor Haskell
Quite a little excitement was
occasioned in Mangum Saturday
evening by a report becoming cur-
rent on the street to the effect that
Governor Haskell was in town.
About 4:30 p. m. a man was driv-
ing into the business part of town
when oome one hollowed; "There
comes Governor Haskell. The
cry was taken up down the street,
people came rushing out of the
stores, merchants, customers and
small boys, all anxious to see
Governor Haskell. The supposed
governor pulled up in front of the
First National Bank and a crowd
quickly gathered around him and
demanded a speech. The gentleman
was considerably taken back. He
was not used to having so much
attention paid to him. He finally
managed to explain that he was not
Governor Haskell although he had
been told they were much alike in
size and features, but that he was a
farmer and lived six miles out of
town. He had come to town to
purchase some of Kinakde's candy.
He said his wife would not think
of doing without it over Sunday
and he liked it pretty well himself,
especially the fresh brittles and
taffies which Mr. Kinkade makes
fresh every day and has on sale at
the candy wagon on the corner.
