and Union Labor
his an unpleaeurit duty but
the Tribune feels tuut organized
labor throughout Okluhoma
should know something of the
attitude of tho Republican can-
didate for Governor Frank
Frantz toward Union Labor
while no was United Stated In-
dian Agent at thin place.
In the spriny: of 1005 workmen
employed in the building trudea
here teamoster laboreia and
other persons interested to tho
number of about 100 met and
organized a Labor Union. The
editor of this paper was ono of
the bunch. A charter was se-
cured from he American Fed-
eration of Labor. Samuel Pal-
mer was eleoted president and
S. B. MoCready waa eleoted seo-
rotary. The local grow in num-
bers and embraced with but few
exceptions the entire laboring
element of the town.
Mr. Frantz was then Indian
Agent at this place and had as-
signed a lot to a very near friend
possibly a relative who forth-
with employed a non-union scab
stone mason to lay a foundation
for a residence. When ho ap-
posed for work the teamesters
refused to haul moro atone and
tho quarrymon refused to furn-
ish more itotio.
The friend laid the matter before
Frantz and immediately U. S.
Marshals gathered in the officers
and prominent members of the
Union and took them to the Ag-
cent's offioo. By regular bull
dozing methods and threats of
deporting the whole member-
ship of the Union from the Res-
ervation Frantz tried to induco
them to furnish the soab stone
masocs with material to work
Finding that throat3 availed
him but little Frantz began a
aeriea of petty persecutions' of
tho Union on a line with the Cit-
izens Allianoe taction. An old
long forgotten ruling of the De-
partment was reaurreated and
thereafter quarry men were com-
pelled to pay for every cord of
atono though its uae onhunoed
the value of every acre of land
on tho reservation. He denied
them the use of the Counoil Hall
to meet in though previous and
subsequent to this time its U9e
was denied to no one and it was
froely used for dances political
speeches preaohing secret so-
cieties Sunday Schools etc
The whole attitude of Mr.
Frantz toward tne Union was
that of a tyrant and tho Twin
Territory Federation of Labor
owes to the membership of the
State an investigation of
record of Mr. Frantz so that
intelligent vote may be oast
The Pawhuska Federation has
disbanded. Mr. Palmer ia now
president of the Pawhuska Team
stera Union. Mr. MoCready
moved to Muskogee where he
held the position of engineer for
the Midland Valley but we un
derstand he i6 now with the Santa
Fe. Pawhuska Tribune
A Business Change.
C. C. MoKnight of the real
eBtate firm Wood & MoKnight
has sold his interest of tho bus
iness to F. N. Wood tho senior
member of the firm. Mr. Mo-
Knight has not yot decided what
business be will enter but we
hope he will remain in the city.
Mr. Wood will have entire oharge
of the businoss now and will
continue to have his offices In

Farmers Stand in Rain to Await
the Coming of Haskell
Claremore. I. T. Aug. 22.
Nearly 1000 people mostly
farmers who had gathered here
ton'ght to hear C. N. Haskell's
address on the constitution
braved the heavy rain and await-
ed until tho belated train bearing
the deraooratio ohampion arrived
at 10 o'olook.
In a brief spoeoh Mr. Haskell
took the national administration
severely to task for mixing in
Ottlahoma politics. The first to
come under fire was Secretary
Garfield. Mr. Haskell comment-
ed upon his trip in Indian Terri
tory in company with Governor
Frantz and in a special car furn-
ished them by tho Frisco and
Katy railroads. Ho then took up
the secretary's stand wherein he
declared himself opposed to the
initiative and referendum in the
new constitution and that Okla-
homa should have followed the
precedent of a hundred years in-
stead of inserting something en
tirely new. Mr. Haskell said
that he had understood that Gar-
field had oomo to investigate In
dian affairs and inquired what
relation if any this had to Gar
field and the interior department.
Next be criticised Governor
Frantz for the low assessment of
the Santa Fe railroad last year
and implied that it waB fixed by
Henry A&p ot uuinrie tne cor-
poration's attorney and that fol-
lowing this oourtesy the Santa
Fe people reoiprooated by furn-
ishing tho governor a private car
in whioh he took u trip to the
mountains of Colorado.
. Frequent applause greeted Mr.
Haskell's remarks and the gen
eral impression is that he won a

Enid Aug 23 -Charles Wost
today made publio his answer to
tho attack on him by Governor
Frantz and Attorney General
Cromwoll through a Guthrio pa-
per in whioh it was ohargod that
Mr. Wost had askod an outrag-
eous feo for tho work ho did
whilo assisting Mr. Cromwell in
proseouting tho oa9oa against the
railroads or rather whilo proBo-
cutlon those casoa in the namo
of tho territory with tho oonaent
of tho attornev cronoral.
Mr. West's answer gives the
lie diroot to tho statomontB mado
in tho artiolo rofbrrod to. and in
support of this position ho has
mado publio tho currospondonoo
that pnssed botwoon Mm and Mr.
Cromwell prior to the timo when
he was dismissed from the Bor-
vioo of the territory.
It will be remombored that it
was freoly stated at tho timo of
his dismissal that the real reason
therefor was that tho govornor
and attorney genoral had a se-
vere attack of "oold foot" and
were inBinoere in their desire to
havo the big corporations brought
to timo. Mr. Weat'Bj correspon-
dence with Mr. Cromwoll shovs
that Wost was in full oharge of
of tho suits rither than assist-
ing that the attorney general
did not oven know what tho ac-
tions were based on and makes
it appear that it was tho blun-
dering methods of tho latter to-
gether with his overweening de-
sire to reap all tho glory for the
work wliioh Mr. West was doinfc
that cauBod the latter to break
with him and invite dismissal.
