GOOD MUSIC BY THE BAND
Saturday was a bad day for
Guthrie. The farmer, the busi-
ness man, the mechanic^ the peo-
ple everywhere said that Okla-
homa’s capital had stayed in
“Nigger Town” too long and that
it should be moved.
Gov. Haskell, in a letter to
Judge J. H. Burford Attorney
for Gutjirie, said that upon the
consideration of the public
health etc, that he deemed it
necessary to move the state
capital to Oklahoma City, By
state capital we don’t mean Frank
Greer's. No! No! Haskell will
leave Frank and his nigger fol-
lowers at Guthrie because their
coming to Oklahoma City would
endanger the public health of
that place also.
Those who have been sucking
the Guthrie teat for so long
will cuss Haskell for his action
in the matter, but what does
Haskell care. He ought to have
moved the capital long ago. We
have felt like cussing him because
he didn’t. i
When the people by a majority
of 50,000 say the capital should j
be moved we thiuk it should be |
moved. What can be gained I
by keeping the state offices at

The election Saturday wna one
olihe most quiet.affairs that has
come off in Snyder for aome time.
A light vote was polled all over
the county because the farmers
were all in their fields. Only 128
votes were cast in the city and
but 140 in the country box. On
the qusslion: Shall the capital be
locaied now, there were 112 votes
for and 7 against. Oklahomu
City received 115 votes; Shawnee
2; Guthrie 5.
There were 45 votes to amend
the constitution und GO not to
amend, in the city box.
In the Snyder country box there
were 110 votes for the location of
the capital now and 17 against.
Oklahuma City received 131 votes;
Shawnee 3; Guthrie 8. There
were 14 voles for the amendment
and 122 votes agaiust it.
The people Still Control

of this kind, with its pictorial
