OFFICIAL PAPER OF GHADY COUNTY'
Ilutered at the 1'o.stoffifie at Cbiekasha Oklahoma
as Second Class Mail Matter
CiTJCXASHA OKLAHOMA JANUARY 28 1003
PROHIBITION LEGISLATION AN EMERGENCY
By a large majority the people of Oklahoma de-
clared that they did not want the l;quor traffic car
ried on withhi the tate.
The voters have spoken and it will be a safe
proposition for the legislature to assume that thoy
meant what they said.
The democratic party has gone on record pledg
ing itself to the enforcement of prohibition as well
Ag all other laws. No party with any self respect
tould do less. A party that is lacking in willing-
ness or the ability to enforce law cannot long com-
mand the support of the people. It is up to democ-
racy to make good its promises.
There is little or no reason to doubt that the
legislature will pass a strong effective measure but
-?oubt is sometimes expressed as to whether it can
ire made an emi-rgency measure or not. It requires
a two-thirds vote to pass such an act..
An emergency act becomes effective immediately
'Upon its passage while an act passed in hc ordinary
manner does not take effect until ninety days after
the adjournment of the session that passed it
An emergency measure is defined as one that is
"'imm-iidiately necessary for the preservation of the
public peace health or safety."
It is admitted that the are no adequate laws at
the present time for the suppression of the liquor
traffic. Our officers while earnest and persistent
in their efforts find themselves thwarted at every
turn from the lack of law and confess their help-
li'sssin ss. The old Indian territory bootlegger even
"with the penitentiary staring him in the face dared
lo ply his trade and now with a much milder law
fficers have little terror for him. Every day the
xpres8fd will of the people as declared by their
s ll c i (ihibition bill in the ordi
lo I i s U m iiliiliitiuii bill in in o orUiimrv way is
to ive a six or seven months' lease of life to .the
booth "if Tin- "public peace health and safety"
demand immediate action. Every sound argument
demands that prohibition enforcement be made an
Kepublieaus have been howling themselves hoarse
over tho emergency laws enacted by the legislature
but now comes Judge Diekerson whose republican-
ism is above suspicion with the proposition that
every law whieli the constitution makes it mandatory
upon the legislature to pass should be made an
emergency measure because the people have already
expressly demanded it. 'Whether the point be well
taken or not certainly it is an interesting one and
there is sound sense in it. At any rate the enieriren
t. :i i . . ii. . i i i i
cy urns mai nave oeen passed were such as are
urgently demanded and afford no grounds for an
objection except from partisan critics who would
strain a point to make political capital.
In the water power of the Washita are the possi-
bilities of making Chickasha a manufacturing cen-
ter "What the city may become is measured only
by the enterprise and activity of her people in util
izing the advantages nature has givan us.
Not half of the riches of Grady county have been
revealed. A country with liner coil a more desir
able climate and a greater variety of products
goes not exist.
Not many towns are fortunate enough to have a
man who can devote all his time to directing the
town building machinery but that is what Mr.
Sayer is doing.
Just read the list of real estate tranfers in another
column of this paper if you don't believe there is
something doing in Grady county.
It will do you good to scan the "booster roll"
occasionally just to keep in mind the men who are
in the game for Greater Chickasha.
The parsing of Hie loio'.'ker is also one of the en-
couraging "signs of the times."
Chickasha has the liveliest bunch of town builders
This is the place we carry
everything a high. class Drug
Store should carry.

faction to choose from our im-
mense lines and a saving also.

You're alway3 talk-

country's going to the

say because of the un-
curbed trusts. Rich grow-
ing richer poor getting
poorer. Used to be that

Well now let's see: Are YOU a trust buster YOUR-
SELF? Didn't we see you stalk up to the postoiticc just now
arid mail a letter with the address of a city Mail Order Store
on the envelope? I Icy? Didn't we?
Don't you know that the Mail Order Store is a trust
one of the most dangerous in the crowd? Don't you know
that it is secretly and silently and sdyly closing the doors of
opportunity to the young men in country towns and small
cities like ours ? Don't you know that the Mail Order Trust
is collecting the patronage of town and country people by
the mail route thereby cutting down tho patronage of the
smaller merchant tho local ir.au who k trying to build up a
mode t independent antitrust business ?
Didn't that ever occur to you?

mild in its action builds up the sys-

Mrs. J. C. Smith Tampa Fla. writes:
"My baby was thin and sickly and
couuld not retain its food; c-ied all
night. I used one bottle of Whites
Cream Vermifuge and in a few days
baby was laughing happy and well."

"Many extensively advertised rem-
edies are failures when put to the
misplaced disappointment never fol-
lows its uso. It is surely the gransl-
tcst. Hunt's Lightning Oil is an ex-
ception. Confidence in it ia never
e?t emergency remedy now obtain-
able. For cuts burns sprains achei
and pains I know no equal."
