To Ratify and Indorse The
League of Nations.
as the Father of World Peace, for the services to his country, anti
to all men everywhere, we pledge our confidence and our faith.
Presented by your committee on resolutions.
R. W. POOL, Chairman of Committee.
Passed by unanimous vote of the date first above written.
ATTEST: STREETER SPEAKMAN,
Secretary of the Meeting.
G. W. MOSS,
Chairman of Committee.
One of the most enthusiastic and most largely attended
^meetings that has ever taken place in the county w^s held last
•night at the court house when a mass meeting was called for the
purpose of indorsing the League of Nations and the Peace Treaty
as givn to the senate by President Wilson. It was indeed one of
the most successful meetings ever held in the state, and the rep-
resentation present marked the solid, substantial, thinking men
■of the county. Men from all walks of life, from every part of the
county, men who were pleased to have an opportunity of standing
forth as in favor of the League and the Treaty and indorsed the
President in his efforts to give to the world a peace that could not
be broken by any nation, a peace that would do away with the
horrors and the sorrows of war, a peace that would give to the
weaker nations the assurance that the stronger would not in-
yade and leave them destitute and homeless after the bloody dogs
of war had passed over, a peace that would not permit of the re-
currence of another war as the one from which the world emerged
so short a time ago. A peace that would permit the young men
of the nation to turn to other things than the destruction of man-
kind, permitting each to follow in a civil pursuit that would re-
sult in the upbuilding of greater industires and institutions, un-
impeded by the drain of war. A peace that would make a fitting
memorial to those brave lads who gave their lives in the cause of
Humanity, and would give to those that returned the assurance
that their sacrifice had not been in vain.
The call for the indorsement came from Oklahoma City in
the first part of the week, and Lincoln county, true to itself and
its better judgment, laid aside business and party -feelings long
enough to say, we are 100 percent loyal, we are back of the Presi-
dent and we unreservedly indorse the League of Nations and the
Treaty of Peace.
Every town in the county sent letters, some of them bringing
them with the petition of others that their names be added to
the indorsement, because of their inability to attend.
Senator Lum Edmondson made the opening address and
pointed out the purpose of the meeting. Followed by the election
of officers. ' G. W. Moss of Stroud, was elected president; Streeter
Speakman of Chandler was elected secretary. The chair then
appointed the following committee to draw up resolutions: Bob
Poole, of Agra, chairman; A. L. McLaughlin of Chandler; L. E.
Griffin of Stroud; B. F. Vaughare of Meeker and Hugh Dean of
The following resolutions were presented by the committee:
Your committee on resolutions beg to make the following re-
BE IT RESOLVED by the citizens and voters of Lincoln
county, Oklahoma, in mass meeting assembled at the county court
house in the city of Chandler, on this 23d day of September, 1919,
After the reading of the resolutions, motion that they be
adopted was made and carried, not one voice being raised in the
negative. . —w. . jv..
The meeting then elected George Morand of Kendrick, as the
messenger to carry the resolutions to Oklahoma City and present
them to the President.
Following this several talks were made, among the speakers
being Lum Edmondson, Streeter Speakman, President Moss and
George Morand. During their talks very reference to the noble
work of the President brought hearty applause from the as-
It was then moved that the body adjourn and prepare to go
to Oklahoma City to see the President. Motion carried.
Next Sunday and Monday are two
great days for the Sunday schools of
Lincoln county. A few more schools
have sent in their reports, making
about >u dozen in all, but there are
still a large number still out. We
would have been glad to have had
them all in but they are not. Be sure
to bring them with you to the con-
vention. We are extremely anxious
to have acomplete report this year, so
that we can. make our county com-
pare favorably with the others.
Please be very sure to have your re-
port in as early in the covention as
Mr. C. H. Nichols tells us he has
secured Mr. L. F. Sensabaugh for
the Sunday morning session of the
work he has in connection with
the weekly appearance of this

their entire work wouldn’t do
half justice to the number of
people that were in the Boost-
ers party. Then someone had a
good thought and Mrs. Roscoe
Cox was asked to help the com-
mittee out and she responded.
Well, she didn’t help the com-
mittee; she did it all herself and
was the entire committee. And
when the Boosters arrived here
in the city she had places re
served for three times the num-
ber that actually arrived, and
she also had the Boy Scouts or-
ganization ready to conduct our
guests to the homes wh&re they
will be entertained for the night.
The Commercial club has Mrs.
Cox to thank for her part in

Col. Harvey then addressed the
