Big State Convention Adopts His Scheme of
Eight Instead of Four Delegates at
Large. Murrv goes down in
LINCOLN COUNTY SUCCESSFUL
J. B. A. Robertson Easily Lands as one of the
First District Delegates. Judge Maben
a Winner. Hoffman Sacrifice.
As every one predicted the big
state convention was strictly a
Bryan convention. No other
name was considered in connec-
tion with the presidency. The
resolutions instruct for hirn and
were unanimously and entbusi
It was also a Haskell Conven
tion and the Governor had the
same control over the vast assem-
bly as Bryan had over the
National Convention in 1904.
It was seen long before the
convention was called to order
that a clash between Governor
Haskell and Speaker Murry was
It had been concluded that
Haskell and Murry would be
two of the delegates at large and
Haskell was very anxious that
Lee Cruce and Joe Thompson
should also go which would make
four on the eastern side. The
Governor was also determined
that his other oppentent for the
nomination, Tom Doyle of Perry,
should also go and above and be-
yond all these reasons the Gov-
ernor wanted to see as large a
delegation as possible that the
influence of Oklahoma in the
National Convention be augment-
Murry argued tnat four dele-
gates was all that the convention
would be allowed and that if
eight was sent they would get
but a half vote each. He said he
had received the endorsement
from more than half the counties
and that the Governor’s plan
would give him a half vote when
the people had demanded that he
should have a whole vote.
The contest came when the
committee on order of business,
reported the order for electing
eight instead of four delegates.
Murry appeared on the statge to
oppose the adoption of the report
and the convention went wild.
The Temporary Chairman Mr.
Tellotson pounded for order in
vain. Murry refused to be
driven or howled down and with
white face and firm set jaws
declared he would stay three
weeks if necessary. Governor
Haskell came to the front of the
stage and stretched out his hand
for silence and immediately the
noise ceased. The Governor
asked the convention to give
Murry considerate attention as-
suring them that Murry was as
honest in his opinions as was he
himself. Murry in an im-
passioned speech, defended his
position and declared his inten
tion of not accepting the nomina-
tion if eight were sent.
He was followed by the Gov-
ernor who lauded the virtues of
Murry and minimized his short
comings. He said when "Bill”
hears the voice of democracy
demanding him to go to Denver
he will show up there on the 7th
of July if you send a thousand
with him. The Governors
speech was a speech of concillia
tion a plea for reward of workers
a demonstration of unselfishness
and patriotism and against his
calm, logical, unanswerable
sentences the flry shafts of
Murrys selfish ambitions were
sent, into oblivion. The Governor
was sustained by a vote of about
ti ve to one.
The following is a list of dele-
gates elected to the National
Convention at Denver on July

One of the pleasing things was
that the counties of the First j

The construction of the cnpitol was begun in 170.3, and the cornerstone of
the central portion of the building was laid by PresUleat Washington in
September of that year. On Aug. 24, 1814, the capitol was partly destroyed j
by British troops, who set fire to all the public buildings. The cornerstone of \
file wings was laid on .July 4. 1851, by President Fillmore, and Daniel Webster
officiated as orator. These wings, or extensions, were completed in 1859.
Tne total cost of the capitol was about 814,000,000.

Roy Hoffman was a great
favorite with the members of the
convention and was tendered a

could have easily been elected.

Lincoln county had been suffici-
