For Delegate to the Constitution-
A. G. W Sango of Muskogee.
We arc authorized to an-
nounce W. h. Everts as a can-
didate for Mayor subject to the
action of the Republican party.
Tho Cinietcr stands pat on
being against immorality vice
licentiousness and it does not
matter who the persons are or
the position they may occupy.
Our friend the Searchlight for-
gets that a safety valve should
never be over loaded for if it is
something may happen. It
would be well is our worthy
contemporary would let the pot
alone while the cooks are away.
Old Allidavit Taylor is still
cussing the Cimeter and mak-
ing dire promise for our hurried
departure from the journalistic
arena but we are still doing
ing business at the old stand and
if Hayman (Old Allidavit Tay-
lor) has finished the gallows we
are willing that he be hanged on
The fellows that want Judge
Kaymond removed are the worst
element of democrats (The bet-
ter element are honest enough
to be fair) and lilywhite repub-
licans who hate Judge Kaymond
because he like our President
Koosevelt believes in giving ev-
ery man "a square deal."
The committeo appointed by
Mr. Fuller the inspector from
the department of Justice was
composed of democrats and lily
white republicans. The colored
members of the bar were not
considered. It was the social
bar association and not the Mus-
kogee bar who were considered
by Mr. Fuller.
Davis the Lincoln club dicta-
tor in a speech recently at a pow
wow said all tho old leaders are
traitors and will sell out. This
was a broad statement and in
defense of the old gang wo ask
who ho referred to as some of
them refered to
are still alive and then wo won-
der if Davis had sold out when
lie advised tho Negro to vote
against Ross Shackleford the
regular Republican nominee for
Recorder. Davis did this in a
public meeting on tho bill and
we wonder if the Negroes who
were present-have forgotten the
advice given by this new leader
who poses as a paragon of hon-
IIoll is full of his class of misfits
The representative of tho At-
torney General joined in with
the democrats ( it may have
been unintentionally) in draw-
ing the color line. There are
ten members of the bar (colorod
men) who were denied permis-
sion of being present when the
fellows who filed charges against
Judge Raymond were attempt-
ing to prove their rharges. The
excuse for denying us admis-
sion was that we were not mem-
bers of the (social) bar associa-
tion an organization that no
Negro can join. These demo-
crats are smooth ducks and
they fooled the Ass't Attorney
general or else ho willingly
joined them in their color line
Hon. J 0. Johnson a promi-
nent colored lawyer and a mem-
ber of tho Wewoka bar was
present with the other lawers of
that place and took part in the
proceedings that endorsed Judge
Raymond. At Muskogee the
Arkansas product of bourbon-
ism and democracy (the Ft.
Smith brand) was in the ascen-
dancy wlr.n the bar met and
they hid behindthe social bar to
prevent a Negro from being
present. There were some fel-
lows in the deal who are not
from Ark. but are under that
influence which means the same
thing to us as a race. Every
Negro will remember the action
of the race haters and when the
time comes as it surely will
there will boa settlement.
