begin tomorrow morning.

Over confidence is not good pol-
itics. Go to the polls and stay
there until the sun goes down.

ficient recorder and the thing to
do is to elect him for his own suc-
cessor. If two men are running for of.

best one. You owe this to the
There can be no democratic
party in Vinita until Davis Hill is
eliminated. A true democrat
wants no bosses.
The citizen's ticket has indorsed
the beBt part of the so-called dem
ocratic ticket. Ratcliff Ni-
differ Hendricks for the council.
The telephone company has de-
cided after being advised by its
attorney W. P. Thompson to com-
ply with the law and pay its taxes
long past due.
Fifteen years ago it was always
pretty safe to find out which side
Hoolie Bell was on and then get
on the other side. Time has not
changed that excellent maxim.
" The man who dips hia bill into
city politics may as well decide in
advance to stand tip and take bis
medicine. Wild and extravagant
assertions on the street are a weak
sort of electioneering at best.
1 Say! Don't go to the farm to-
i morrow but stay in town and vote.
l)on't be a moral coward. You
know how to vote and your duty
is to give your neighbor the bene-
fit of the beet vote you can cast.
4 The election tomorrow is not
different from other elections held
in other years. The line up is the
same. There has always been a
ponfiict between the two elements
ef the community and always will
J be. Those who believe in law and
"' -ordet And those who do not. Half
way between these extreme fac-
titious are many good people who
i are swayed by prejudice or senti
1 jnent or indifference.
j How the scramble for the next
ChleiUincy will begin in etrnest
i but just why any one would peek
tbn nlace is Dot altogether appar
ent. The next Chief will no doubt
have tbe privilege or rather the
..ir f oijrniuz the deeds to tne
allotted lands of the Cherokee po
pie. But it ia no1 quie clffr now
an executive could grow rich or
great 6tx.ply J f'ging bi-i uame.
Thf-re wiil be upward of a million
gcres cf Iir.d to a'l -t by a pupple-
mental agreement or ia some other
way but really there will hardly
be much honor or emolument in
the ofiioe of principal chief.
The law regulating voting in Vi.
niu this year provides that a re-
iJence ot twv"inonths in the In-
dian Territory and thirty days in
the ward ie required. As there
has not been wards in Vinita for
that length of time the law will
have to have some equitable con-

The real danger that confronts
honest city government in not the
conscienceless rascal who stealth-
ily eels his plans to plunder the
town and fatten off its revenues
but it is the careless citizan who
refuses to take an interest in poli-
tics. It is the moral cowird who
leaves town on election day for
fear of offending some one whom
his conscience wont let him vote
for. The man who "doo't want
to get mixd up in it" and
"has no time to waste on politics"
and the fellow who wants to "see
which way the cat jumps because
he don't want to lose his vote."
These are the men who make
Tammany rings possible They
are the people the political boss
loves. The part of a good cit'Z"n
is to vote right regardless of party.
