More revenues will be required by the city to keep the public improve-
ment movement going. To keep pace with the pavemnt and sidewalk build-
ing operations the city must have money for crossings grading and other
urgent improvements.. In addition to this more school room will be a
necessity next year. The city is now far behind in its finances crpmped on
nearly every fund. There is only one way to raie the additional revenues
and that is to increase the assessment. The assessor seems to be powerless
to do and therefore it remains to choose a board of equalization that will
put the valuations at a fair figure for all the people taxing all property on
a basis that will give us adequate revenues and do no injustice. This is a
matter to which the neonle will do well to give some serious thought. High
taxes may not be a f!?asing prospect but a city held back by the "shorts" is
ORGANIZING FOR THE NEXT BATTLE
It is conceded Ui-t one of the important factors that won the unpre-
cedented victory for t!;e democrats in the delegate election last fall was the
organization perfected by Jesso Dunn and his co-workres on the campaign
The result showed an overwhelming victory for the democracy but this
should not cause the party to attend to organizaztion with less zeal and
care in the coming campaign.; nor should easy victory in the past beget
too much confidence in the future.
It is clear that the combined territories are democratic by a good com-
fortable majority but compact organization is always necessary to get out
the vote and generate the enthusiasm out of which victory is born.
The next campaign will be a harder one than the last. The republicans
know our strength and will bring all possible influence to bear to turn the
tide in their direction. Already we have it reported on reliable authority
that negro colonization has been going on quietly and it is evident that the
democrats will have the liquor forces as well as the corporation contingent
''jned up against them with all the resources at their command.
It behooves the democracy therefore to begin now to drill their forces in
order to be prepared to meet the enemy when the call to arms is sounded.
Mr. Frear who is organizing the state under the direction of the state
committee is giving valuable suggestions and if his plans are followed
there is no question as to the ability of the democrats to meet the foe and
coine off conquerors. Every democrat should be enlisted in this work and
every man in whom resposibility is vested should realize the importance of
the work entrusted to him.
"In peace prepare for war." The next campaign will soon be upon us.
Organization is the work that should engage the attention of every loyal
THE EXPRESS AND THE CONVENTION.
The Journal is puzzled to know why the Express defends the consti-
tional convention and finally comes to the v3nclusion that "it is just nat-
ural with Bro. Evans; he cant take a shot at a democrat no matter how
wrong he does." The Journal also finds that there are only about two
ether papers in the state who are supporting the convention which is a
fair sample of it? accuracy of statement.
It is true that the Ardmorite Muskogee Times-Democrat and other pap-
em have from time to time disagreed with the delegates on divers propo-
sitions! but they have not joined the crowd of defamers who seek to mag-
nify every little disagreement among the delegates into a grave delinquency.
On the contra "y they have loyally supported the convention in its great
objects and work. The Express itself has from time to time werod suggest-
ions; it does not hold that the delegates even though they be democrats
pre infallible but it does recognize that the delegates are honest capable
men and has no fears that their labors when completed will not meet with
the hearty approval of the people.
The fact is that the convention is composed of men who will average
well with any legislative body in the land. And the republican press in its
partisan frenzy its unjust attacks and misrepresentation of the delegates in
trying to parade them before the country as a wild set of hayseeds has done
Oklahoma great injury. These papers have made themselves allies of the
liquor and corporation influences that seek to discredit the convention and
defeat the adoption of the constitution.
The Express is pretty well pleased with the convention thank you. It
was pleased wi';h the outcome of the county line matter. Weren't you Bro.
Journal? It was pleased with the disposition made of the liquor question
and all the other great matters that have been acted upon. It may differ
with the delegates in many details but it recognizes the right of honest
difference of opinion and it refuses to join in the hue and cry of the disgruntled.
Stale Capital: The jar that Chiekasha received by the removal of
Rock Island division headquarters to El Reno will douhtless prove a benefit
in the long run. The citizens while not asleep by any means have begun
to realize that advantageously located as is Chiekasha they have got to do
their part in miking it the great business center they have good reasons
to hope it .tnay be and t'.ie way they are now humping themselves is a
caution to knockers.
The cigarette is one of the most deadly foes of boys. It dwarfs a
lad's physical and intellectual growth and is equally detrimental to his morals.
All good people can afford to co-operate with any movement looking to the
control of this evil.
The way the list of Commercial club boosters is mounting up is as-
tonishing to the slow-goer. Mr. Stephens is thinking about raising the
limit from 250 to 400 members. We can do it. Let's have 'em.
Are you a democrat? Are you a republican? See to it that good men
are nominated for city offices. Attend the primary or convention of your
Chiekasha is getting bigger and better all the time. And larger things
rre coming. This is a straight tip. Get wise pin your faith to Chiekasha.
