The voters of this county are not particularly interested in
electing a wind-jammer to take care of the county records. Jce
Pringey is past master in wind jamming but Brady Brown, quiet
and unostentatious, possesses the necessary qualifications foi
making a good Register of Deeds. This does not appear to be in
secret, we bear from voters everywhere that Brown s majority
will be measured by hundreds.
of quail that they would probably not have enough meat for dinner.
Now, just why the chief liar did not include pee-wees in the
list of birds to be hunted is :.ot known unless he was afraid it
would be a reflection on some of the republican candidates. Of all
stories that have ever been concocted in Lincoln county, this quail
story is the thinnest. These negroes have been incited to acts of
lawlessness and by the Chandler Tribune exposing it, it will in all
probability prevent the consumption of acts of violence and per-
haps avert blood shed
The Grandfather Clause is now a part of the constitution, and
it is just as incumbent upon election officers to enforce it as any
other part of the constitution. We know it is the will of the peo-
ple because it was submitted to them as a separate question last
August,land republican politicians and republican papers who for
personal reasons are trying to defeat it are violating the law as
much as are the bootleggers and horse thieves.

One of the most amusing things in the present campaign is
the'attempt of John Gayrnan to prejudice the voters against his
opponent, J. A. McLaughlin. He charges that McLaughlin is a
National banker. Now, John has the appearance of being a sleek,
well fed, well groomed banker or some similar occupation while
Mack has big horny hands that can only be acquired by a life of
toil. John has every appearance of being a farmer. If John should
undertake to do the work, the actual work on a farm that Mack
done he would be in a better position to prejudice voters of this
County against McLaughlin.
The republicans entered the present campaign clamoring vo-
ciferously for tax reduction. They charged the democratic ad-
ministration with having levied taxes outrageously high. From
border to border of the commonwealth they introduced the poli-
tical slogan, “Look at your tax receipt and then vote.” But
such a slogan proved a boomerang, returning into their own
ranks with most disastrous effect. Such a cry caused the people
to study present tax conditions, and to review the tax history of
territorial days. The people began to investigate, and have
begun to ascertain the truth. They have learned that the terri-
torial lax rate for five years prior to statehood averaged 6 4-10
mills. They have learned that the state tax rate for four years
succeeding statehood has averaged only 1 5-10 mills. They have
learned that the highest county levy, is in the republican county
of Logan, and that the highest city levy is in the republican city
of Guthrie. They have also learned that in the recent special
session of the legislature the republican membership voted solidly
against the bill reducing state taxes. The slogan caused investi-
gation; investigation developed the truth, the truth has exposed
the slogan, and has destroyed every thought of republican victory,
and of republican sincerity.
Chas. B. Wilson, Jr., Democratic nominee for District Judge,
is a candidate for a district office and not for a county office and
his name will be found on the state ballot and not on the county
John ,T. Gayrnan is handicapped in his campaign against Mc-
Laughlin. lie cannot talk upon competency because he knows
that every man, woman and child in Lincoln county knows that Mc-
Laughlin is competent to perform every act required of County
All the republican papers over the county copied the article in
the News-Publicict attacking J. H. Brown, Since the article has
proven false it remains to be seen if the same papers have the man-
hood to correct the error they accused Mr. Brown of sanctioning
by permitting it to go incorrect.
Lee Hill, the popular candidate on the democratic ticket for
County Clerk, has been granted permission by the school board
at Tryon to place a substitute teacher in his school for two weeks
while Lee does as much campaigning as can be done in that time.
The contract for the Tryon school was made before Lee became a
candidate and he has shown his devotion to his duty by fulfilling
his contract. Papers all over the state have commented upon the
fact that lie is the youngest candidate in the state and they migl t
also have added with truth that ho is one of the brightest and best
nullified candidates in the state.
We desire to call attention of the voters of the Second Com
missioners District to the splendid qualifications of Jake Collar
for that office. We feel sure that if Jake is elected to this office
we will have a commissiimr who will weigh every question re-
garding the expenditure of money carefully and would see that the
interest of the tax payers is subserved. The County Commission-
err, above every other office, should be a business man. Mr. Collar
is a good business man. He has demonstrated that fact by build-
ing up a large private business in Chandler, he has demonstrated
the fact as a member of the school board and mayor of his home
After a County C nnmissioner is elected, politics has cut but
very little ice and th s second District is entitled to the best talent
that the district affords in conducting its financial affairs. A vote
for Jake Collar is a vote for econemy and for a business adminis-
W. Jones, otherwise known as “wind jammer" Jones, has re-
presented himself to be a preacher, so it is told, in the Northern
part of the county where he is not known. Now we want to say
that a boot logger would just as soon use a preacher, or a pretend-
ed preacher, as anyone else and Jones has been caught in the act
of passing to boot-leggers and furnishing to them pictures and
literature to hurt his opponent, H. L. Melton.
We leave it to the individual voter whether this is the act of a
prohibitionist and a preacher. And in conclusion would quote to
Mr. Jones a short passage from the good Book. “By their fruits
ye shall know them,”
J. M. Gardner is only an honest old farmer with a wholesome
respect for the law and desire to enforce it. His election, along
with that of H. L. Melton, for Countv Attorney, means enforce-
ment of the law. That is just the reason why thy Chandler boot-
leggers and the Prague boot-leggers and the Stroud boot-leggers
are working overtime to defeat them. Will the good republicans
in this County who believe in law enforcement allow this to be
done at the polls? Will they march in and accept the choice of
boot-leggers? Will they even go further and cast their ballots
witli boot-loggers and help to defeat the man whom the boot-leg-
ger fears? This may not be in accordance with their political be
lief but there are times when the duties of citizenship are above
the duties of partisanship and this is one of the times.
W. S. Baker, an old gentleman who lives at Bellmont, and who
was put on the republican ticket, merely to “till up” is certainly a
funny old chap. Although the district is about 1200 Democratic
and Bill Tilghman, one of the most popular Democrats in the dis-
trict, is a candidate, the old fellow in the enthusiasm of his dotage
said in substance that there are no good patriotic educated Demo-
crats, that the republican heros were sent by God and that if he
was not elected that anarchy and chaos would result. We have
seen many freak campaign letters but for abuse and wild state-
ments this one takes the cake.
A QUESTION OF CHOICE

E.ery voter west of Deep Fork who has business in Chandler,
regardless of whether lie owns land in the bottoms of that creek,
should be interested in the digging of the canal. It will mean that
they can cross Deep Fork any time of the year, whether it is be-
fore or after a big rain. A vote for George Clark is a vote for a
good road across the bottoms of Deep Fork.!

According to the News-Publicist Congressman Bird McGuire
should be returned to congress because he gets more appropria-
tions for this district than could a democrat. According to this
same News-Publicist commissioners George Clark and Bob Mor-
row should be defeated because they vote for appropriations for
improvements. Seems to be a matter of who handles the business
only, according to the News Publicist.
Buzzi lias really wanted to stop
Now J M Gardner and II. L. Melton and H. N . Jarrett be-
lieve they can stop this law breaking, they certainly could do no
worse than has been done. Is it not an act of wisdom to give them
a trial, and m this connection it might be said that if local option
carries there will be just as many attempts to break the law as
there has been, because under the law, there are only three p aces
in the county where liquor can be sold, and bootlegging wi it)
just as rampant as it is now. A vote for Gardner, Melton and Jar
rett is a vote against the boot-leggers choice.
In the Second Legislative district of this county, L. A. Blood
worth is the Democratic candidate and R. C. Blackburn is the re-
publican candidate. The issues in the campaign have largely been
whether or not a law be passed authorizing county high schools,
and whether not separate schools be continued, our Jim Crow law
continued and whether or not the Grandfather Clause of the con-
stitution be enforced. L. A. Bloodworth stands for township high
schools, he stands for separate schools, for the Jim Crow law and
for the Grandfather Clause. Who can say what Blackburn stands
for? Of course, we understand that he is between the devil and
the deep blue sea. He has a large negro constituency which he is
afraid of offending who openly declare against the Grandfather
Clause and the Jim Crow law. Is this the kind of a man we want
in the Legislature? Do we want a man in the Legislature who is
afraid of offending a few ignorant negroes or do we want a man
EXPOSED THE ATTEMPT
The Chandler Tribune recently exposed the fact that the ne-
groes all over the county were purchasing six shooters and that
the act had been incited by the speeches of Joe McNeal, Bud Mc-
Guire and editorials in the Chandler News-Publicist and other re-

in the republican politician ranks. The republican politician.
rushed around to all the hardware stores in order to return the
time worn ephitet, Liar.”
After thorough investigation it was found that every word ut-
tered by the Tribune was true and that the negroes had pulsed
every six shooter for sale in Chandler and other towns. What
was to be done in the premises? Six thousand white voters of
this county are not to be inf mated by one thousand armed negroes.
Negroes arming themselves will cause a thousand conservative
republicans to vote the Democratic ticket.
The republican committee put it up to the chief liar of the re
publican committee to frame up a story to meet the emergency.
After soaking his head in a wet towel all night the chief liar of the
republican committee published that the negroes were purchasing
the six shooters for the purpose of killing quail. He failed to ex-

Every day the town business men and the practical business
farmers are becoming more and more convinced that the election
of Geo. Clark and Bob Morrow is necessary to the growth, devel-
opment, ana prosperity of the county. Every day thoughtful men
are more and more convinced that the hue and cry recently rais-
ed against them was purely political. We cannot afford to risk a
million dollar ditch by putting on men whose strength lies in the
fact that they are opposing what Clark and Morrow have done.
