Candidate for Altorncy.Gencral
Will Address the People
With Reference to the
The voters of tl.o city and in
tho neighborhood will bo greatly
interested in the address of Chas.
West tonight. In many speeches
of tho various candidates wo havo
heard what Mr. West has said
and done with roforonce to tho
railroads but wo havo never
hoard Mr. West colt it.
Mr. West is undoubtedly tho
best versed man in Oklahoma
concerning tho railroads the
ooal trust and the lumber trust
and what ho will say is not to bo
regarded in a partisan light but
is for the advantage of us all.
Caddo county gave Mr. West a
yery heavy majority In the pri-
mary and will do the samo thing
in the coming general oleotion
aa all men both Democrats and
Republicans are very much in-
terested personally in having a
man of Mr. West's fine qualifica-
tions and abilities in an offioe
where he oan do tho most effoot-
ivo work for tho people.
The chiefs of tho railway ser-
vice both Democratic and Re-
publican are against Mr. West;
but the people irrospeotivo of
how thoy may divide on political
issues are for a man who will
got them fair treatment and good
servico from tho railways. There
is not a merchant or. farmer in
this town and county who ia not
in Mr. West and his oandidaoy.

Affidavit for certificate of error
of M. E. Schultz for erroneous
taxes for the year 1000 on lot 8
oity of Bridgeport
When Tyro Maker was nomi-
nated or nheriff one of the things
he promised tha voters if ho was
elected whb that after the tax
warrant wore insued for person-
al taxes ho would writo each
man against whom he hid a tax
warrant and give him u chanou
to come in and settle with-
out itiourrinir oxpenBea for mile-
ago. Sheriff riiomprton has nt
djnothid. TnompHjii'd deputi7o
said it O'juld not bd done. Well
it can bo. Ed Ruy sheriff of
Kiowa oounty a democrat does
this. Snm Campbell sheriff of
Garfield county does this and
any sheriff oan. G od peoplo
sometimes overlook to pay their
taxes and tax warrants issue
Judging the future from the
past what will Blankenahip do?
We only have to refer you to the
people who live in Walnut town-
ship. In that township Blank-
enship nerved eleven tax war-
rante in one dav. He started
from Binger in the morning and
returned to uinger tnat samo
night making a drive of less
than 30 miled in all. lie charg-
ed each taxpayer from S3 00 to
$350 aa mileage. Ho was allow-
ed under the law 10c per milo for
each mile of travel- and tho
statute makes a provision that
tho mileage ahull bo porportion-
ed aa between tho taxpayers
and no constructive mileage
ehall bo charged. Blankenship'B
mileage against the taxpayer for
this one day amounted to more
than S30 00 and in order to havo
earned this ho would havo had to
traveled more than 300 miles.
He oertainly wa8 "going some"
or else ho made a false certifioute
Wo believe hie oertifioate waa
false what do you think Mr.
Voter? A man that will make a
false certificate and charge more
fees than tho law allows him
should not be entrusted with the
affairs of a offioe. The poople
have trusted tjo far already.
