GIVE HASTINGS A BIG MAJORITY.
The president of the United States
has refused to abandon his work and
take part In the congressional cam-
paign throughout the country this
" *'' ""*■ faU- of the acute situation
and he ha* not only economica. brought on by the European war.
Thus once more the nation is made 1
to realize that Woodrow Wilson is
a rnan to whom the good of the
nation, over which he has been call-'
ed to preside, is the first and over-
whelming consideration. A man
who, as chief executive of this great
nation wrote his message to the
varring powers in which be ten-
dered his good offices to them for
the settlement of their difficulty, at
the side of his dying wife, is* the
kind of man from v.-hom such a
course is t0 be expected. From ever}
sec ion of the country and from
widely different sources there comes
a strong, emphatic and continually
greater expression of satisfaction
that our country has a man like
him for president now. The confi-
I deace reposed in hinr. by the nation
when it elected him chief magis-
trate. has grown since he has been
in office. The public has found that
he has Justified its fullest confidence,
and he is today stronger with the
public than ever before not with-
standing the fact that he has been
through some difficult and trying
experiences as president. The suc-
cess of his Mexican policy alone, a
policy followed in spite of criticism
and ridicule, ha.s given him the sup-
port of hundreds of thousands of
The country has a president of
whom it is proud and in whom it
trusts. The country ha3 Just cause
to praise and be proud of him, but
all honor for the great volume of
progressive legislation in the interest
of all the people enacted in the
past two years does not belong en-
tirely to the president. It must
not be forgotten that he has had
the faithful support and constant
co-operation of the Democratic con-
gress wh« re 290 representatives have
patiently, diligently and courageous-
ly stood at his back and fought for
such measures as the reduction of
the tariff, the income tax, the fed-
eral reserve act, the farmers' ex-
tension bill and innumerable other
acts which have meant more to the
people of this nation than any leg-
and will make Cherokee County an uetlve, fearless and creditable of-
ficer. Vote for "Bill" Davidson on November 3, and rest assured the
afairij of the office will be properly and well attended to.

'o the voters of the county as he Is the same "Cindy" who filled th.-
office two terms following statehood. Mr. Moore will be elected by
one of the biggest majorities on tli«> Democritic ticket, so if you like
to \ote for a winner, vote for J. It. Moore for county surveyor.
The most noticeable evidence of a Democratic victory November 2
the size of the meetings the Democratic speakers are receiving The
-ante report comes from all over the stale and hIiowh that the De-
mocrat} of Oklahoma in awake to the importance of electing Democrats
to office The Democratic meetings throughout Cherokee ( ounty have
been exceedingly well attended. While, on tho other hand, it "is re-
ported that the Republicans are paying but little attention, which shows
a lack of interest, presaging a rousing Democratic victory in November.
ihe Republican campaign committee has said that at statehood it
turned over a million five hundred thousand dollars for general pur-
poses to the Democratic administration. The campaign bureau under
command of General Barde only missed the sum a matter of a million
four hundred and forty-six thousand dollars. But when one remem-
Ders the past campaign documents issued by Barde, it will have to be
jammed that he came as close to a fact this time as at any other,
i e territorial government turned in exactly fifty-four thousand dol-
lars for revenue purposes, and the balance of the million and a half
was in special funds which are still intact or invested in buildings
<vhich are worth the more.

REV. J. A. PARKS VOUCHES FOR WILLIAMS.
The article appearing in the Republican paper of this county last
week concerning the religious life of Judge Williams is unjust mislead-
ing and erroneous. ' "uu
A careful inquiry has been made and the facts and truth of the
career ot Judge \V illlams as a Christian gentleman are as follows
Judge R. L. Williams, the Democratic candidate for governor was re
ceived into the Methodist Church at Durant by Rev .1 A Parks whilo
pastor at that place several years ago. He still maintains his memhi
ship there. By his acts, his words, his speech, Judge WilUams as a
lay member of that church observes its ordinances and supports Its In
st tutlons, just the same as all loyal members of any church should
His Christian character and personal worth will be attested to bv Rev
Parks, now at Wewoka, Okla., who is well known by the people of his
city and county as having served the Methodist Church here for three
years, as Its pastor. Certainly, leading a Christian life and being loyal
to his church is no obstacle to any man making a good public official.
The Sun last week, in its continued editorial: "Let us look it the
records," if it is anything, is honest when the editor tells you that all
the use he and' his politicians have for you is to secure your vote From
the tone of the editorial it would seem that he and vou were the oniv
persons materially interested in the selection of county officials and
hat his interests and yours are identical, which is truef In a measure
In the p aclng of money, by way of taxes, into the treasury your per
cent of taxation is perhaps identical, but the hope of his editorials U
to gain ..our confidence and your vote, that his per cent of gettlna that
money out of the treasury will be considerably more "identical" than
yours. He has been the county printer during the incumbencv of tho
present Republican board of commissioners and the way has worked
It has been a sinecure which he hopes to prolong and ho
