In the Stress and storm of bat-

ment by winning for Democracy a
victory in the national congressional
and county elections it should not be
forgotten that six state offices the
administration of which are of su-
prcme importance to the people of
Oklahoma are to bo filled.
When the voter goes to the polls
on Nov. 2 he will be asked to bal-
lot for four judges of the state
supreme court one judge of the crim-
ianl court of appeals and one mem-
ber of the state corporation commis-
sion. It is of vital importance that
high caliber men be selected for thee
positions. The men who are to oc-
cupy them will have the last word in
deciding upon the life liberty and
disposition of property of the citizens
The Democratic party at the recent
primary nominated for these positions
six men of statewide reputation
known alike for their ability and their
unswering support of popular govern-
ment. The Democratic candidates for the
supreme court are:
Second district Judge W. H. Brown

Chaplain C. H. Barnes 142nd Inf. 36th: Divi-
sion makes statement regarding candidacy of
COLUMBUS E. VEACH
for Sheriff of Bryan County
I was Chaplain of the 142nd Infantry 36th Division and many of
the boys of Bryan County Oklahoma served in this organization during
the late war and as their Chaplain I was very close to them personally.
I had charge of the burial detail of the regiment and buried many of the
Bryan County boys who gave their lives during those awful days.
I was ever a friend of those who survived and especially of Co-
lumbus E. Veach Candidate for Sheriff of Bryan County.
Mr. Veach served on the border and overseas. I was connected as
Chaplain with his company and can testify to his qualities as a sol-
dier from personal knowledge. Columbus Veach served on the border
as 1st Sergt. Co. H. 1st Oklahoma Infantry and was later promoted to
2nd Lieutenant in the 142 Infantry 36th Division at Camp Bowie Texaa.
Upon leaving Camp Merritt N. J. for oversea service he was
placed in command of a detachment of sixty-five men who were charged
with various military offences and were to be tried by-General Court
Martial overseas. He single-handed without an officer or enlisted man
to assist him landed this detachment at an interior replacement camp in
France with the loss of only four men who escaped. This act demon-
strated that he possessed judgment and tact and ability to handle men
and was a marvelous achievement.
He rejoined his regiment on Sept. 29 as they were on thoir way to
the front line and was assigned to Co. "C" and was engaged in all the
terrible operations of his organization on the front line. I was present
and know. He proved to be courageous and a man of cool judgment
in action at times that tested men and in my opinion he possesses the
qualifications vitally necessary for the office of Sheriff.
When his country needed he went. He did not hesitate. He gave
valiant service. He endured he sacrificed. I do not believe the people
of Bryan County will ignore his appeal to thern for Sheriff. I know
he made good as a soldier and am satisfied he will make good as a Sher-
iff. Personally my politics are Democratic but at a time like this
the man should be considered. Hence my endorsement of C. E. Veach.

Shoe Market in Chaotic Condition
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PUBLIC:
The writer being President of and operating the largest chain
of retail shoe stores in the Southwest a large factory in New York City
and a wholesale house in St. Louis is in a position to inform the pub-
lic of the real condition of tho Shoe Market at the present time.
All materials going into the construction of shoes (including
leather) have been declining for some time. Factories have not suf-
ficient oid';rs with which to operate at anywhere near their capacity.
Many being closed entirely. A good many retailers are cancelling orders
and returning shoes. Conditions like these will exist for some time and
have caused complete demoralization of the Shoe Industry.
With these conditions existing there is absolutely no reuson why
shots should be retailed at the prices being asked in many stores today.
The reason you are being forced to pay these high prices are that a good
many people do not understand that good shoes can be had at a reason-
M.-mj merchants will not look these facts in the face and are at-
tempting to unload shoes at high prices with the statement that good
shoes cjituiot be sold at a leasonable price.
When prices were advancing many merchants felt justified in tak-
ing advantage of the market condition in demanding more than their
normal profit. Now shoes are declining. Force them to give you the
benefit of tho declining market.
Many people are under the false impression that good shoes cannot
be bought at a reasonable price
It has been the policy of this firm to build up our business on
values. We have been felling good shoes in our stores for the past sixty
days as low as $:$00 p'.-r pair. Many people took advantage of these
savings but others feared that a price so low meant inferior quality.
I take this opportunity of informing YOU and our fellow shoe mer-
chants who question our ability to ;;ell good shoes at the low prices
being asked in our stores that every sale shows us a satisfactory profit at
the present market replacement value.
I want to also advise you that our stores guarantee every sale
made to give satisfaction in quality style and service or money cheer-
