Without disparaging the merits of any other candidate, we
desire to say that in our opinion, Judge R. L. Williams possesses
the qualifications necessary to make Oklahoma a good governor.
His training as a lawyer, his experience as a member of the con-
stitutional convention and his service as a member of the state
supreme court has given him an opportunity to see and study
the needs of the state not excelled by any individual in this great
commonwealth. He has made excellent use of those opportuni-
ties and is today one of the best informed men on state issues.
Bob Williams is not a faddist, he is not visionary, he is not stuck
up, he is not an alarmist. He is a plain, practical, common sense
man. He is a man from among the common people and has the
interests of the masses at heart. He is strong intellectually and
big enough in every way to make a model governor.—Quinton

A newspaper calls the Mexican situation a war on one man
Huerta. It is a protest against an assassin and a despot and so
long as one man is the government it is necessary to govern our
policies to fit the situation as it is, and not, as we want it.
IS WILLIAMS LOOSING GROUND?
R. L. Williams has been recognized as the leading candidate
for governor by all informed people regardless of their personal
Each and every opponent in the field against him realizes
that he or they must break “Bob” Williams down before they
have a ghost of a show.
Is it not reasonable then to believe that they will do all in
their power to make it appear that Williams is loosing ground?
Is not the wish father to the thought ?
We predict that from now till the closing of the campaign
you will find the partisans of the candidates opposed to “Bob”
Williams repeating in unison with rythmatic cadence the words
‘Williams is loosing ground, Williams is loosing ground.”
As an answer to the little chant we append the report of a
straw vote taken:
Editors Take Straw Vote on Candidates.
According to a straw vote taken among ninety-five news-
paper publishers on a train returning from the editorial as
sociation meeting at Ardmore. Judge R. L. Williams is first
choice among the democratic editors as candidate for gover-
nor on that ticket. Out of a total of seventy democratic
editors, forty expressed themselves in favor of Judge Wil-
liams: twelve for Judge J. B- A. Robertson, eleven for A1
Jennings, two for Attorney General West, and none for Dr.
A total of twenty-five votes were cast by editors who
were either republicans or progressives, the straw ballot
standing as follows: John Fields, 17; John Hickman3; Geo.
You can mix with farmers, laborers, doctors, lawyers or
"business men where every part of the state is represented and
you will find that the same ratio is maintained. Williams was.
is and will be far in the lead-
The campaign for the gubernatorial nomination on the demo-
cratic ticket has progressed to the extent that it is possible for
one to predict results. Many newspapers as well as individulas
throughout the state have, in an excess of zeal for a favorite can-
didate, blinded their eyes to the real conditions. While the
Chronicle has all along felt a strong preference in the matter, we
have tried not to allow that preference to warp our judgment. At
this time, taking into consideration all conditions, it seems prac-
tically certain that Judge R. L. Williams will be called upon by
his party to lead the ticket in this state, and the Chronicle believes
that no wiser selection could be made. Judge Williams has grac-
ed the supreme bench. He has demonstrated the fact that he is
possessed of those attributes that qualify a man for high and re-
sponsible position. He is not only a man of deep learning, but of
mature judgment and a wide grasp of public affairs, as well and
would be a governor of which the citizens of the state of Okla-
homa would be proud.—Clinton Chronicle.

, u Ihe Tecumseh Democrat editor made a trip recently to Ok-
lahoma City to get the political bearings of the several candi-
dates for governor—or rather, to see if he could find anybodv
in favor of Robertson and opposed to Williams. When he got
back home he reported that Williams was just about shoved off
the political board by Robertson and Jennings. It’s strange how
easy it is for some fellows to find what they are looking for For
instance, a thirsty fellow goes into Oklahoma City on the hunt
for booze to “cool his parching tongue” and finding a bootlegger’s
joint he comes home and reports that the whole town is covered
with bootleggers. He never saw a church, a business house a
decent citizen—He saw only bootleggers’ because the bootleggers’
firewater was what he wanted and he didn’t look for anything

to what he found The “tenderfoot” that hears a coyote for the
first time thinks the whole country is alive with the sneaking
little animals when in reality there’s only one lone prairie wolfe
ha\ mg a whole jollification by himself.—Tipton Weekly Times.

The race for governor of this state is practically decided ac-
cording to our way of seeing it. At the meeting of "the Press as-
sociation at Ardmore last week the editor of the News secured a
poll of the editors as to how they stood in the governor's race ancl
according to the ballots cast. Bob Williams received 47 per cent-
Those editors were from all sections of the state and know the
true conditions as they exist in their locality. We were greatly
surprised to learn that Williams was so strong in the western
part of the state We knew all the time that he would sweep the
eastern part of the state, but thought that a west-side man would
carry the west and northern part of the state. If you are hunt-
ing a winner you had ,ust as well get into the Williams band wag-1
on, for Bob has almost a cinch to succeed the weakling from Ard-1

Can a person be prosecuted un-
der the “white slave” act when the
“slave” in question is black ?
That is a question that has con-
fronted the local police force and
placed before Special Agent Dennis
The question was raised by Ora
Grigsby, a brown skinned negress i
who complained to the police that!
her “friend” had forced her to go I
on the streets to earn money and
then took the money away from her]
and gambled it off.
“I told him that I was going to
have him arrested for “white slav-
ery” she said, “and he said that l|
couldn’t do it as I ain’t no white
slave and couldn’t be unless my
color would fade. He said that he
did not bring me from no other
state nohow and that he can’t be
teched under this white slave law.
What 1 wants to know is there any
way to reach that man under the
white slave law” or any other law
and punish him for the way he has
She gave a good description of the
negro and the officers promised to
pick him up and sent her Dennis to
investigate the "white slave” end of

What do you wish to be. You can be a success at
lots of things or you can be a success at one of lots of
things, but you only need to be a financial failure and
you are a complete failure. “Money makds the mare
go.” If you have money in the bank you are not a
failure provided you put it there. Nothing succeeds
like success. Nothing fails.
