Governor Ferguson said In his
speech at tho Pawneo reunion last'
week that he was aching for an op-
portunity to havo his Job as governor
fnkon away from him; that ho want-
ed statehood for Oklahoma. Tho gov-
ernor was perhaps a little enthusias-
tic whon ho said that and It Is.cnilto
probablo that his Bontlmont will ; not
bo shared by the) majority oC the
.federal office holders In tho territory.
Nobody doubts that tho typo o' elf
sacrificing statesman who asked lib-
erty or doath is woorully absent in
tho ranks of federal grafters who
fill the toirltorlal offices in Oklahoma.
It is ridiculous to assort that tho
fodoral office holders of Oklahoma
want statohood. Thoy do not want it
because- thoy know that If thoy got It
tholr jobs will disappear as Boon ns
Oklahoma becomos a state and from
their reputations In tho past It Is not
to bo presumed that they aro willing
to give up anything. Their picking'
has been fat and thoy aro not going
to bo pulled loose without a struggle.

their wishes will bo consulted by a
Republican delegate to congress. If
Oklahoma wants statehood tho peo-
pie win enu a man to waBiungton
who will work for statehood and not
raorojyj dodge nbout and introduce
(fake bills to decolve the people while
at tho samo timo ho is doing every-
thing in his power to defeat the end
ho pretondfi to be" working for. If
you want statehood send BJ11 Cross
to congress; ho will work for the poo-
plo of Oklahoma and not In Iho Inter-
ests of the federal office holders.
Tho man who allows partisan poll
tics to Influence his voto on county
commissioners falls in his duty for

prosperity of both county and city.
