GREATEST VOTE IN STATE'S HISTORY.
(From Harlow'8 Weekly.)
The most notable feature of the election of
November 7th is the size of vote cast, the great-
est in the history of the state. The following
comparison of the vote for presidential electors
in 1912 with that of the election just held shows
an increase in the total vote of all parties for
the four-year period of 38,015, using the vote
cast for the first elector on the list as a basis:
2,185 Prohib. ....
McNeal, R ... 99,527
Cumbie, S ... 24,707
Rouch, Proh . 3,214
The vote in the gubernatorial elections of
1910 and 1914 may also be compared with the
recent vote with equal interest as showing the
trend of party spirit in the state:
Williams, D .100,597
Fields, R____ 95,904
llolt, S_____ 52,703
Hickman, P’g. 4,189
Independent . 294
Reasons for this unprecedented vote may be
ascribed chiefly to the exceptional activity of
the management of the three political parties
participating, though the natural increase in
population had a very considerable effect.
Never in the history of the state have either
of the parties made so thorough a campaign,
yet it was noticeable throughout that there was
a lack of the old-time partisan enthusiasm that
usually characterizes a national campaign. This
phase of the subject indicates that the people
as u whole were doing more thinking than
shouting, especially when the tremendous en-
thusiasm which prevailed after election is con-
The republican management was spurred to
supreme efforts by the hope that their national
ticket would be successful and that their or-
ganization would be the dispenser of federal
patronage for the state. It can hardly be said
that they ever entertained a real hope for carry-
ing the state for Hughes. For a time there
may "have l«en some hope among them for the
election of 1‘nrkinson for corporation commis-
sioner but at best it was but a feeble one. The
committee received a liberal contribution from
the national committee and made excellent use
of it in conducting a strong educational cam-
The socialists were inspired by a confident
belief that their party would show a very ma-
terial gain. They believed there, was oppor-
tunity for carrying the congressional districts
and for the election of a nutnlier of state leg-
islators and county officers. They expected to
show the greatest gain made by any of the
parties and to strengthen themselves in every
way to such un extent as to become the*chief
oppositon to the democratic party in the next
campaign. They conducted the most thorough
campaign of any of the contestants, put out
more advertising material and received the
most consistent support from socialists through-
out the nation. They have the closest and most
effective organization und their work undoubt-
edly brought out the maximum strength of the
party at this time.
The democratic organization was unquestion-
ably the most popular, from the standpoint of
maintaining party harmony and of creating a
favorable impression on the voter, that the
party has had in any state campaign. Bitter
personal animosities and inter party conten-
tions had developed and these were accentu-
ated in the primary campaign. An organiza-
tion with a leadership that could harmonize
and subjugate these disquieting elements and
secure cordial co-operation in the work in hand
from all of them was effected at the outset of
the campaign. Popular contributions support-
ed the work, which was intense and thorough
in detail. Instead of receiving aid from the
rational committee it was a part of the cam-
paign work to assist in securing popular sub-
scriptions to the national campaign. Success
unprecedented in previous campaign must be
attributed to team work throughout under an
HOW THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTORS
(From Harlow’s Weekly.)
The state elects a presidential elector for
each congressman, the electors nominated from
the several districts and elected by the vote of
the entire state, also two electors from the state
at large as representative of the two senators
to which each state is entitled. The'eiectors
chosen in Oklahoma this year are as follows:
3rd—C. A. Coakley____Madill_____Marshall
4th—D. A. McDougal__Sapulpa______Creek
5th—J. W. Reece_______Stillwater____Payne
6th—Mose Mitchel_____Hennessey . Kingfisher
7th—Harry Smith______Taloga _____Dewey
8th—Frank P. Davis___Enid________Garfield
Dr. Howard Weber. ..Bartlesville.Wash’gt’n
C. K. Rose--------- Hooker ____Texas
These electors receive their election certi-
ficates from the state election board, under a
decision by the supreme court of the United
States they are state officers, and no person
holding a state office is eligible to election.
Under a federal statute no elective or appoint-
ive federal officer is eligible, not even a director
in a national bank. In the application of the
Oklahoma statute a peculiar situation is de-
veloped. In accordance with federal statutes,
the Oklahoma statute of 1910 requires the coun-
ty clerk of each county to transmit to the gov-
ernor and secretary of state an abstract of the
vote for presidential electors in his county and
to retain one copy of such abstract as a per-
manent record in his office. The election law
of 1JHS requires the precinct counters to make
an alwtract of the vote of their precincts and
transmit a copy to the county clerk where it
becomes a permanent record.
The secretary of state, state auditor and state
treasurer canvass the vote in the presence of
the governor and announce the result. The
governor then transmits certificates of election
to the electors. Another statute enacted at the
same time as that referred to above requires
the state election hoard to issue certificates of
election to all state officers. Governor Wil-
liams requested the attorney general to render
an opinion covering procedure in this matter
and was advised that while the issuance of cer-
tificates by the governor would doubtless be
sufficient yet, as a precautionary measure, it
could not possibly be harmful to have both the
governor and election hoard to issue certificates.
This procedure will be followed and each elector
will receive two certificates. .
By requirement of federal statute these elec-
tors meet at the state capital on the second
Monday in January and organize by the elec-
tion of a chairman and secretary. They vote
by ballot for president and vice-president and
then choose one of their number to act as mes-
senger to carry the vote to the national capital.
For this service he is allowed $300 by the fed-
eral government. The other electors receive
only mileage, paid by the state, for their trip
to the state capital. The electoral returns from
the states are canvassed by congress.
The following table shows the returns by
counties on the presidential vote, the figures
given being the vote received by the first elector
appearing on the list. The variation in the
vote between the high and low votes for the
electors will range from ten to twenty in most
of the counties.

Its nature. Ornithologists have not

the bird to find its wav back an*

After they mate and build their

When you spend your money don’t
take a chance but buy what you
know will be satisfactory. A VWs-
trola, for instance, cost about the
same as other talking machines and
when you get one you know you have
the best that is made, and your mon
ey’s worth. Other machine agents
may cut the price but why take a
chance of being dissatisfied the baf
ance of your life just for a dollar or
two? Save the disappointment— buy
