COYLE. OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, AUG 1, 1918
As To Congressman
Before the next issue of the
Clipper the Democratic voters
of this district will have been
called upon to choose their can-
didate for Congress While
there is little doubt but what
Thompson will be re nominated,
the circumstances are such that
might be well to any a word
iu regard to the matter. Mr.
Thompsod has served his dis-
trict well and is one of the best
iuformed men in congress today.
He has been a staunch support-
er of the President and has been
a great help to the administra-
tion during the strenuous times
we are now passing through.
Iu our opinion it would be very
bad policy to make a change to
man of inexperience and un
known qualities just because he
bappeus to be in the army, and
this seems to be the main quali-
fications of Mr, Thompson’s op
tor the Democratic nomination.
While we think it unnecessary
to call our readers attention to
the congressional matter as we
believe Mr. Thompson will be
nominated almost unanimously,
but should there be any who
contemplate casting a vote for
the othei man, we ask that you
give this matter due consider-
ation before doing so.

The Constitutional requirements providing that members of Congress shall
be nominated and elected every two years, is my apoiogy for this announcement.
I have been your Congressman since 1912, therefore, am not asking you to
vote for me—sight-unseen.
I have a record. That record is my platform. If you approve it, I will ap- j

This is particularly true of Congressmen who have to do with the prosecution Fair Oak News
of the war The election of a Congressman not in sympathy with the president,
is fraught with so much of danger to our country that I shrink from the contem-
plation of such a possibility.
We have but but one occupation now—“WINNING THE WAR. Private
business and personal comfort, as well as politics, are adjourned for the duration
of the war. The President, as you know, has requested the Congress to provide
revenue to prosecute the war, before final adjournment.
My congressional duties will, in all liklihood, render it impossible for me t#
get into the District before the primary. Of necessity, therefore, I shall have to
depend on the generosity of my friends to look after my campaign. I rest con-
tent in the knowledge that they can perform the task much better than I, even if
I were permitted to visit the District.

Dear Mother and Father
I am writing to let you know |
we have got to Canada Sun-|
day morning I attended church |
aloug with a big bunch of Ca
uadians. Then this evening 1
gathered buckle berries and
wild roses in the vines and ma-
ples. Ob! it is tine These hills
have sand right on top and the
ground is nothing but sand cov-
ered with moss about eight in
ches deep. You feel like you
are walking on a leather bed all
the time. Mountain tea is also
abundant. Yes, 1 took another
swim this eveuing iu water up
to my neck that was so clear 1
could see my feet plain
1 imagine 1 can see those old
French men in tiie dark depths
of these woods.
We came here by eea. Sea
sickness is bad. You can not
understand how a ship can roll
It is my earnest request that every voter in the District go tortile poles on
August 6th and register his preference for the Democratic Nominee for Congress
frqm the Fifth District.
This, perhaps, will be the only appeal 1 shall make to my friends, as it is my
intention, at an early date, to visit our boys on the battlefields of Europe, and
I will most likely be there on the day of the primary.
When I return I shall come among you and tell you what I saw . Until
then believe me, Faithfullly your friend,
You can help do this with
one oi our home camiers
and plenty of Nos. i and 2
cans for same.
We also have qt. tin cans
at 60c doz.* and plenty of
sealing wax and parafine.

Dry weather we are having.

That talk about the deep blue
sea is all punk. It looks more
like fountain pen ink, except
when it rolls and breaks, then
it is white. It does not look at
all like water—more like a
wheat field about two miles
away. But the bays are fine

I thot the dumps were near and
accordingly made a clean sweep
oi all my past, emptied out my
stomach, threw up my socks
and called for “Melancholy to
come alter her own.” Oh! the
joy's of sea sickness is grand.
Well, the people here are so
nice, they are so good—cannot
help but 'ove them. They too,
think as we do, talk as we do,
love their friends and entertain
strangers in grand style. The
girls here are the same girls we
have at home; the boys the
same; the fathers and mothers
just like borne folks, in fact,
you know, we are all brothers.
