FREE 6IUVER TICKET.
JAMES R. KEATON.
TUESDAY OCTOH13II 85 1803.
Hob MpIIkysomW poctls typewriter
has lost its voice.
That election bonrtl was about the
worst thltiR that over happened.
Thk campaign is livening up. Hu-
cbanan has acquired a fresh shave.
Hon McKrvxol.s' hobo ttokot Is
catlly lacking in sidetrack facilities.
Fi nn is a big Btiff blutr. No argu-
ment put up in his defensa will hold.
We haven't reached lllrdie Laverty's
name in the protocol but if it Is thcro
Spain may keep him.
C11A111.KV llKitum won't need a clerk
to make up his records at the expense
of tht. taxpayers. He'll do that himself.
The Leadku is compiling some coun-
ty records which when printed will be
of some interest to Republican candi-
dates now holding ofllcc.
It Is very evident that the Republi-
can machine never read between the
lines of that pink circular. Its
awful slop to refer to at this time.
Joitv Nklbon may as well replace
his silk hosiery and patent leathers.
Ills barefoot bluff will work no longer
with the farmors and besides this Is
Edoau Jonks may not have handled
at many briefs as Strang but he
knows how to get a case lute the su-
premo court something that Strang
finds difllculty In doing.
Thk Capital p-actlcally admits that
Harris Huston Is crooked but pleads
for him on the ground that ho pays
taxes !n Guthrie Tho fact Is Huston
has never paid any taxes.
Votehb should inform themselves in
the most thorough manner with all
names of the candidates In tho fusion
ticket so that whon thoy go to the polls
to rote they shall make no mistake.
A. IIahkib Huston romains In thr
trenches and vefuscs to get on the fir-
ing line. So long as a Harris can be In
the shado of the administration block
house he will never be overcome by
A. II. Huston Is respectfully asked
to explain tho reason the grand jury
lulled to find a truo bill agatnBt Fred
lionflls In tho Cohen affair. Ho was
tho county attorney In the case.
Speak out Mr. Huston Cohen s not
here now but there aro others here
who know all the details
It is almost certain that tho Free
Bllver forces will bo successful but
this fact should not lead to overconfl-
dence. It is dangerous. Overconfl-
dence leads to apathy and apathy
leads to defeat. "Up and at them"
should bo tho war cry. Untiring la-
bor constant diligence increasing
watchfulness nro tho elements of success
The villlonous attempt of the cloo
tlon board of Gov liarnos and Judge
Cunningham to cheat the peoplo out
of their votes and elect a legislature
that will do their bidding and white-
wash everything from top to boUom
ouifht to arouse every voter in the ter-
ritory and set htm to work to defeat
Ir you want to onjoy this campaign
you must read tho Lkahkk Tho cam-
paign has been altogether too " pok-
ey " and solemn. Right now we pro-
sent a keen refreshing bill by tho ver-
satile knock-about artists McXcal and
Hornor. lloth aro hide-peelers. They
cau havo all tho space in the Ikaikii
Thk Capital says : " Wo admit that
Huston's work looked orooked and
that ho beat the board of commission-
ers and also with his brother Captain
Huston he ran the county attorney's
ofllce without regard to Republican
interests but is thla record any worse
than Soulo's gall ? " Perhaps not but
the peoplo are not supporting crooked
candidates this year.
Akk the peoplo of I.ogau county
ready by their votes to say that Gov.
Harnes administration is entitled to
their support' lfo they will vote
for his man A- II. Huston. With Hus-
ton In tho council and Merten Jn the
house Gav. Barne"i and Harper S. Cud
"Bingham wlP continue their raid upon
the acfeoal land funds. Fathers who
hare ebildreu to educate should vote
to .irotoul this Important fund. Tlioro
is no politics in this but lots of good
GitRBR of the Capital once more tc-
sorts to studied falsehood in defending
'the mtshapen cause of A. II. Huston.
He attacks Soule with exceptional vir-
ulence anl very unwitely seeks to fan
to a blae a fight betweon Guthrie and
Oklahoma City declaring that Soule
is not a resident of Guthrie but is
trying to represent Oklahoma City's
interests in tho legislature. Soulo has
resided In Guthrie four years: his fam-
ily rcn'des horo and ho pays taxes in
this city. These facts surely ought to
ontttlo him to residence

Harris Huston barrister and ex-
prosecuting attorney will now take

Cohen and one Fred lionflls had a
Administration. We object.
Chorus of voters. You must answor
the question. It is relevant.
Huston. (Timidly) Yes sir.
Qucs. Did the matter get before
the grand jury?
Ans. If my recollection servo me
right I believe It did.
Qucs. What was done in the mat-
ter? Ans. Noth Well eventually Don-
ills was "done."

A sonsation In court. Two men
faint and are carried out on Republi-
can planks. Court adjourns for the
term and Huston runs for the legisla-
ture. Hopes to wake laws which he
hitherto has twisted to suit his own

We aro informed but do not lenow
whether It is true that the election
board has decided to print tho name
of Judge ICcaton on the oftlcial bal-
lot but once but will print oppo-
site his name to tho right tho three
designations Voters should bo care-
ful about this as well as other names
and sco that should any name on the
ballot appear oftcner than once then
U90 tho stamp but once in tho square
opposite each ono of tho candidate's
namo whom thoy dcslro to vote for.
bhould tho board print tho namo of
any candidate oftcner than onco on
the ballot then a stamp should bo
used but once in ono of tho squares
opposite and to tho left of tho namo
voted for. Every voter should bear
these facts In mind while preparing
Whllo we do not believe that should
thoy print the namo tSrcn times on
tho ba'lots and the voter through
error Btamp in each square opposite
such name it could be treated as a mu-
Hated ballot still It is best in that
case to uso the stamp but once sz ns
to bo absolutely certain that your vote
will be counted.
IT Ml'.ST UK A PHYSICAL UISA1III.ITY
Section 13 of the election laws Is
very strict. It prohibits any person
whomsoever oven tho clerks judges
and Inspectors from imparting any in
structions to tho volqr unless he is
" blind or otherwise physically uuablc
to properly mark his ballot." It will
bo seen from tho words in quotation
marks that the voter cannot receive
instructions on the ploa that ho is In-
tellectually unable to read tho names
of the candidates on the ballot lie
must bo blind or physically unable to
properly mark his ballot. It is plain
then that tho words "properly mark"
mean a physical disability and not an
Intellectual disability. Severe punish-
ment Is provided for any violation of
A liUMUOUHTW CUSHHHSS ASSUIIH1).
Wu don't care to add to tho discour-
agement of the Flynn Republicans
but figures prepared by a Republics
of high standing and of unexception-
able facilities for obtaining corroet
and roltablo Information and who
came within three of forecasting tho
Republican majority in the Fifty-fifth
congress says that the Democrats aro
reasonably sure of a majority in the
next congress of at least seven These-
figures aro regarded in high Demo-
cratic circles at Washington as ex-
tremely conservative while at tho
Democratic headquarters in Washing-
ton a much groater majority is confi-
iivstTo.s will UK run DO IT.
We arc told that A. II. Huston is
telling tho people that if elootnd the
first thing ho will do is to introduco a
bill to limit tho powers of the equali-
zation board. To kocp ftith with his
promises ho will doubtless do this but
is any ono credulous enough to behove
he will push such a bill through and
mako it a law ? If thero be suoh a
man he ought to be tapped for the
simples. Huston as everybody knows
Is Gov. liarnes and Attorney Genoral
Cunningham's candidate. That fact
of itsulf ought to bo enough for auy
roan whether he be a Democrat Re-
publican or 1'opullst.

frionds have not the hardihood to

taxpayers want to continue that sort
of thing they havo the unquestioned
right to do so and keep right on pay-
ing the fiddler. If they havo had
enough of it and it appears thej have

Morton and Huston aro railroad can-
didates and if elected to tho next
assembly will do tho bidding of Gov.
Barnes and Regent Asp.
How aro they controlled?
Here is tho obligatory pedigree
Asp got low freight rates for Morton
ovor tho Santa Fe. Asp buys school
warrants colored by Morton
Tho governor appointed Huston's
brother a captain. Hinton standing in
with the Flynn faction won tho coun-
cil nomination and in turn tossed him-
self off to tho governor.
It is all vory prettily arranged
Hut it won't wrk.
Just as Captalu Joseph Stiles who
is an honest man and made an honest
treasurer for Logan county was about
to surrender his ofllce to Ritterbusch
a warrant 'su:oi by the Republican
county commissioners for over S500
was presented to him for payment and
Captain Stiles said: "No Sir I will
not pay it for I know all about it and
it ought not to be paid and ns I am
about to go out of ofilco with straight
records they Bhall bo kept straight."
Ritterbu'ch came into oflljo a few days
afterward aud when this fraudulent
warrant was prosonted to him he paid
it. If anyouo doubts tho truth of
this lot him look at tho records.
Jamkh Lovki.l tho Free Silver can-
didate for county comml'slonor In tho
third district will be olected haudR
down. Whon ho takes his scat along
with Commissioners Allen and Styles
thero will bo no more robberies of the
tuxpayors of Logan county as long as
they hold tho reins. Mr. Lovcll is a
farmer of high standing and absolute
honor and personal integrity. When
he takos the oath of ofllce he will re-
quiro an accounting and a showing of
books by tho prcsont boodlcr board
that will be an eye opener to the tax-
payers of Logan county aud for that
reason hundreds of Republican tax-
payers want him elected.
TiiKAsuitKit ItUTKitiiUBOii does not
know a column of figures from the tlv
marks on his office window and ho
can figure up tho columns of figures
from ono end just as easily and as
quic' ns ho can from the other
Either end is all the same to him. Is
that tho kind of a man tho peoplo of
a great and glorious county like Lo-
gan want '' Rub him out and put in a
man like David T. Kyscr who can at
least udd up a column of figures and
toll tho people something of the coun-
ty's financial condition.
UxmitiT "H"on tho records of the
county commissioners is Judgeistrang's
letter ot Indorsement of that 81000
steal fram the county. Exhibit "A"
on the same records Is A. II. Huston's
rocommondation that the steal was
all right lloth ot these men are ask-
ing tho taxpayers to put them In of-
fice again Straug to recommend other
steals and Huston to protect the gov-
ernor and incidentally to help Harper
Cunningham to utlllxo thu school
