The delegates of the Farm-
ers and Voters League met
yesterday in annual state con-
vention in Shawnee at Con-
vention Hall. There were del-
egates from all over the state.
The convention was welcomed
to Shawnee by Mayor Stearns
of Shawnee, the most popular
mayor in Oklahoma.
. Among the speakers were
Hon. E. J. Ghidings, of Okla-
homa City; A1 J. Jennings, of
Oklahoma City, formerly an
outlaw; G. L. Hamrick, of
Tuttle, H. H.Smith,of .Shaw-
nee; and A. J. Carlton, of Te-
cuinseh. The purpose of the
organization is to bring about
a radical change in Oklahoma
politics, and there was a great
flow of oratory in Shawnee’s
magnificent convention hall
at last night’s meeting. The
crowd was somewhat small on
account of the terrific down-
pour of rain, thunder and
laid to rest today (Thursday.)
Many of the friends had to
travel long distances to get to
Shawnee. Mr. Koons was the
proprietor of the Last Side
Barber Shop and was an old
resident of Shawnee.

know and understand that there
Is a class of people who cannot
hire a bull to present their views
to the public, and there is no
reason why they should be kept
from telling their story to all
who want to bear. There is a
limit, however, to which mi eh
people should'go. and there Is a
limit which they will not be al-
lowed to exceed. This limit is
the bounds of decency When
a street speaker becomes inde-
cent, vile or unreasonably aba-
site of any person or class ii is

ers do more to hurt any cause
I han they do to heneiit it. and
they are Intruding on the rights
ol the majority. As to strikes.
I realize that the working class
has a rigid to make its demands,
but I object to tile use of vio-
lence or tors- in sell ling any
problem. I object also to per-
sons who have no interest, di-
rectly or indirectly, except to
disturb and abuse, interfering
in any strike or labor trouble.
It is enough for those directly
interested to tight the battle j
