The Wanette Enterprise.
WANETTE, POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1912
HON. CHAMP CLARK.
By J. W. ESTES.
What is an anarchist?
I may not know but I will tell
you what I understand it to be.
It is a man who takes the law in
his own hands and does what he
pleases, law or no law. Then we
have two kinds of anarchists.
The midnight anarchist and the
daylight anarchist. The mid-
night anarchist sneaks around
the back way so as to keep his
work hid as much as possible.
This is the bootlegger. He takes
the prohibition law into his own
hands and sells booze, law or no
law, and there are classes that
take the law into their hands
and do as they release, law or no
law, and in broad daylight. This
is what I call daylight anarchy.
Now who is the bootlegger?
The editor of The Progress
says it is Corn pone Jackson. But
I have heard that disputed by
old man Sue! over on salt creek,
who says it is John Mottley and
that the courts have already con-
victed him and he is now under
guard in a camp upon salt creek
at the expense of the taxpayer.
There are two guards over John
»t a salary of $140. a month.
Now it is John’s business to work
on the public highway and put
all the county roads in good con-
dition, but owing to the bad
weather John has not bean able
to do any work on the roads for
the past month so it has been his
duty to cook himself three meals
a day, and the two guards feed,
water and attend to the mule
teams for the county. Now John
is very busy. He is trying to get
all his roads in good condition for
he is expecting the biggest cot-
ton crop this year that has ever
been raised in Pottawatomie
county for the prospect is better
than I have ever seen it since I
have been in the county for the
simple fact that rotten substance
is the best fertilizer that is known
and it is being spread in great
quantities'all over the country
and this means four bales to the
Now we are living between
two anarchists and it is not very
pleasant, but when we complain
someone will say if you don t
like the style » Oklahoma just
get out. Which, by the way, is
very good advice, but on the oth-
er hand there is that four bales
to the acre which is a big induce-
ment. So you see it is a hard
problem to solve. “Wope, says a
man; it is not. There stands C.
B. Kidd, the socialist. He is eager
and hungry. Just vote him in
power and let him do away with
This bulletin is sent to you for
the reason that there is at this
time an epidemic of Cerebro Spi-
nal Meningitis in our neighbor-
ing state, that of Texas, and the
public is very much alarmed, and
it behooves us to keep a very
watch for this disease, and when
a case is diagnosed it should be
promply and effectivly quaran-
tine until such a time as you are
thoroughly convinced that it
would be safe to raise the same.
Remember, immedite reports are
expected at this office.

State Commissioner of Health.

Progressive Democrats want the Re-
publican party to nominate Robert M.
LeKoliette for the presidency; so that

Aod Progressive Republicans want
the Democratic party to nominate
Vfoodrow Wilson; so that—If the Re-
publican party shall lose—still the
People will win.
You will observe that the Progres-
sive Dove has at last learned wisdom
from that wily old Serpent, the Sys-
tem; whose favorite plan has been,
to :.el*ct both candidates, subscribe to
both campaign funds and then let,
^he People, in deadly earnest, fight
t useless battle.
Personally, I fear that the Progres-
sive Republicans cannot control their
