Some of the Rep. pn-e-rs have dis-
covered a plot by the Democrats to
‘•gerrymander’’ Oklahoma. There is
no cause for alarm: if the Democrats
can heat the efforts of the Rpublicans
in gerrymandering the state to elect
delegates to the constitutional conven-
tion. and the congressional districts,
they will have to get up early, and will
be entitled to the worm.

Is It not worth while to make four
bushels of com, wheat, potatoes and
apples grow where but one bushel
grew- before* Is it not worth getting
anxious about and asking why the
money available for irrigation purposes
is not applied at once as was intended?
The Irrigation or reclamation fund
that can be drawn on for Irrigation
purposes in the new state is said to
total 6 million dollars. Oklahoma con-
tributed this sum to the reclamation
fund It may he Oklahoma's fault or
the fault tnay lie elsewhere but it is
a fault nevertheless that It is not ap-
plied Immediately to the work for
which it was voted
Oklahoma is abundantly prosperous
now but Its possibilities have not been
exhausted. Its already great crops
can be made better by scientific irri-
gation. The meaning of irrigation to
the eight northwest counties of the
state cannot be estimated. Irrigation
is the last thing needed. Now that it
has been provided there remains only
the need to apply it.
The prosperity of Oklahoma means
greater prosperity for the adjoining
states and nearby cities. Prosperity
cannot be kept at home. The surplus
grain, fruit and vegetables which Okla-
homa produces now and the Increased
surplus It will produce under irriga-
tion will overflow Into Kansas and to

gets so emphatic, It Is time to look to

withstanding the very emphatic and
altogether ungentlemanly assertion of
the NB the Democrat stated only the
facts. That one or two others were
present does not do away with the fact
that it was a Republican conspiracy
formed to throw discredit upon Demo-
cratic officials, even if Democrats did
help the matter along. The thing was
sprung on them so suddenly that It
looked plausible, and had they voted
