CHICKASHA IND. TER. APRIL 3. 1906.
Yesterday April 2 the birthday of Thomas
Jefferson was celebrated throughout the nation. It is
well to keep alive the memory and turn often to con-
template the lives of the founders of the nation.
- As the author of tne Declaration of Independence
and as the ''father of democracy" Thomas Jefferson
will always occupy a high place in the "hall of fame"
and the political principles wb ich he taught will al-
ways be an inspiration and guiding star to lovers of
Jefferson's democracy was the consummation of
all the aspirations of his age for individual freedom
and it was the protest of that age against the "divine
right" of a king or any other man to exercise author-
ity over another; it was the assertion of the sovereign-
ty of the individual and this doctrine so forcibly ex-
pressed in the Declaration was elaborated and given
concrete application in the constitution as interpreted
Monarchy was the great foe of freedom in Jeffer-
son's mind and it was against monarchy that he direct-
ed his blows but today the followers of Jefferson
find the foes of popular government in different guise
if the same in character. : Crowned heads no longer
cause any fear in our minds but enthroned wealth
the tyramny of greed and cunning the combinations
of capital represented by the lords of Wall Street do
excite alarm and furnish occasion for a fresh applica-
tion ot the principles of Jefferson which hold that so
far as the government is concerned no man shall be
taller than another or enjoy any privileges or favors
not enjoyed by every other man.
The door of opportunity is wide open to the
democratic party. All that we have to do is to apply
the doctrines of Jefferson to the issues before us the
tariff the control of corporations and every other
issue involving a conflict between the welfare of the
many and the interests of the few apply the true
principles of democracy and put men in power who
stand inflexibly committed to their enforcement and
the foes that menace our freedom will disappear.
Chairman Carmichael announced after a cartful
poll that it seemed reasouably certain that Albert
Thompson would pull through with a safe majority-

A city election is only a flash in the pan compar-
ed with the scenes that will be witnessed when the
real political pot begins to boil.

tic victory from' Ninnekah to the banks of the
Query by Frank Mischievous Bailey: "Did you
ever see a person try and try and couldn't even make
an effort?" '
The democrats did their part toward the success
of the meeting but where were the republicans?
Now get out and work just as hard for Chickasha
as you worked in the election.
Was it a mere feint to divert the democrats from
the real scene of action? 1 .'
