It looks like Texas has nominated
a "wet" governor. The contest was a
hot one, with a great amount of
publicly, and tbu people certainly had
n opportunity to decide wbo they
wanted to vote for. Politics are like
everything In Texas—on a big scale.
Too much legislation will kill ti
best state in the world. Whoever It
was who first said "let's- get th
railroads tlrst, and then regulate
them" had more sense than all th
long-haired fanatics who wrote the
monstrous constitution, put together
The reaction has set In, and it will
not be long before Oklahoma will
step out of the Texas-Kansas-Mlssou-

Hunt up your precinct inspector

The best inforamtion The News can
obtain indicates that Bill Murray is
at this time the leading candidate for
governor, with Ross a close second.
One reason for the slump of the
Cruce stock is that the people are
beginning to find out the unscrupu-
lous methods used to force certain
people and newspapers to support the
One paper that we all know of was
froced by threatB of a receivership to

tactics have been employed elBewhere.
Cruce Ib the only democratic candi-
date not fighting the administration.
The administration knows, therefore,
that if Cruce is nominated and elect-
ed, there need be no fear of an in-
vestigation Into the doings of the
present administration, whereas, if
Ross or Murray Ib nominated and
elected, there will be something do-
The tactics of the Haskell adminis-

For instance: the father of a teach-
in the Shawnee public schools is
prominent member of the Ross
club. The teacher, according to the
patrons of the school where she has
been teaching, is the most successful
who has ever had charge of that
grade. She had to go, because her
fath°er was a Ross supporter.
Every man who holds a Btate job
Is a Cruce supporter. Why? Simply
because the tip has been passed to
them "work for Cruce or get out."

Oklahoma City with the Injunction:

Cruce, or you lose out,' or words to
Besides employing these methods,
Cruce's supporters are flooding the
state with money. A thousand dollars
of supposedly Cruce money came Into
Shawnee in the early part of last
week. No one seems to know just
where It went, or what for, but It Ib
said to be a fact that It was received
The last great effort of the Haskell
administration will be, It seems, to

reet, in New York. A class of forty was graduated, thirty-six boys and fo

York, as everything was spoken, recited and sung in Chinese, the address
of Principal Chu was in Chinese andeven the music was Chinese.
LAST CHANCE TO GET ON THE
VOTING LIST FOR TWO YEARS
It is imperative that all who desire
to vote within the next two years re-
gister now. Registration books close
Saturday. They will open again only
for those who were out of the city
or tailed to register for some other
good reason. "Too busy" or "forgot
it' will not be a valid excuse.
At the coming primaries the nomi-
nation of candidates for state and
county offices will not be by any
means the most important thing to
vote upon. The grandfather clause
will be on the ballot, and the words
for the^ amendment"—there will be
no place to vote "no" on the clause,
and the only way to vote against it
is to put a heavy pepcil mark through
the words "for the amendment."
FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY.
Weed-cutting notices have been sent
out, and they should be observed.
The city has the power to hire the
weeds cut and tax the costs to the
property as a special tax.
Go to your inspector and register
as a republican. You will want to
vote in the republican primaries next
spring, if not this spring, and you
will have to register to do so.

sister of MIbb Tronnem, and then
ended his own life. The affair is
shrouded in mystery. Miss Tronnem
was present at the time of the
shooting, but refused to make any
statement. She gave her name as
Miss Mary Wilson, while the victim's
name was given as Mrs. Defeux. Lat-
er their identity was revealed by
Mrs. Young tn the hospital. Rigdon
was a distant relative of the Tren-
nem family and in that way became
acquainted with Mrs. Young. For
years he had been infatuated with
her. It is believed that the deed waB
prompted by jealousy. Mrs. Young
was the former wife of Alexander C.
