TI TRUTH MADE PLAIN
Rendered Desperate By Altus' Tremendous
Gain, Olustee Spreads Reports of an A1
tus-Hollis Combination to Dismember
Jackson County, By "Donating" Town-
ships to Hollis in West Jackson to Create
a New County.
About the meanest aud moat
thoroughly contemptible false-
hood Olustee haa been guilty of
perpetrating in an effort to ae-
cure votes for for rapidly failing
cause, was shown in the newspa-
pers publiahed weat of Salt Fork
last week, bat it came to the sur-
face iu all its hi dec as.ness and
viudictiveneaa at the Duke picnio
Saturday. The purport of thia
colossal falsehood ia to convince
the votera that Hollis and Altus
have jotued hands iu a scheme to
diamember Jackaou county—that
is, if Altus ia choaen aa the coun-
ty seat of Jackson, she is to
"give" Hollis certaiu townships
iu the weet end of this county,
which, taken in connection with
the territory Hollis ezpecta to
chop trom Greer, will give her
aufficient territory to form a
couuty of bar own.
That sooh an agreement on the
part of Altus would be impossible
of accomplishment ia apparent
to every tbiuking, readbning, in-
telligent man, who will joat atop
and conaider the propoaition for
a moment; but Olustee has so
skillfully colored the falsehood
as to make it somewhat plausible.
She says that the electiou to se-
cede from Jackson county will be
called in connection with certaiu
townships iu Greer county, ad
joining, which Hollis als?) ex
pects to get; and if the Greer
county townships vote to secede
this vote will also carry the Jack-
son county townships with them.
This, theu, is equivalent to 6ay-
iug that 120 matter how the citi-
zens of these Jackson county
towusbips vote, the vote iu the
Greer county townships adjoin-
ing will defeat their will, aud
they will be forced to secede
whether they desire to do so or
A blacker, more mendacious,
outrageous falsehood was never
invented by a band of grafters so
lost to all sense of decency and
honor that they will resort to
anythiug, no matter ho v under-
handed and nefarious, to
up their dying cause. In the
first place, if au election to secede
from Jackson couuty were ever
beld by townships on the west
side, the citizens of those towu-
sbips are themieives
the arbiters of their own destiny
What they say goes, and nothing
on earth can defeat their will.
Under the Oklahoma constitution
it would be impossible to hold
such an election in connection
with Greer county townships.
The citizens of each county must,
decide, independent of the other,
aud thus is the most plausible
and deceptive part of Olustee's
lie refuted. Again, the citizens
living in these townships iu West
Jackson county have uaver given
the slightest intimation that they
desired to leave Jackson and go
into a new couuty with Hollis or
any other towu as cbunty seat,
so the whole matter resolves it-
self into a simple lie, invented by
Olustee with the assistance of
their tool and lackey, the editor
of the Eldorado Courier, to fur-
ther Olustee's county seat am-
bitions. The Courier waa full of
it laat week, and the thick-headed
numbakull who writea dope for
that aheet aeema to imagine that
the citizeus of these towusbips
are idiota or fools—and they cer
taiuly would be if they took auy
stock iu such au opeo-faeed, self-
evident lie aa the above scheme is.
Olustee partisaus were indus-
triously circulating this false*
Iiood at the Duke picnic Satur-
