PRACTICALLY UNANIMOUS FOK WILLIAMS
The meeting of prominent demo rats from all over the state in-
cluding well known bu.il..- men, ministers of the gospel, educators
and farmers, with quite a good representation of the labor organisa-
tion., developed very strongly one fret namely, that Judge W illlamn
will have little serious opposition for the democratic nomination foi
governor.
One delegate after another repor c<l his section of the state as wr~
tually unanimous" for the distinguished jurist.
The organization at this time of the state-wide "It. L. Williams Good
Government club" is especially significant it recognizes the great
cry f Oklahoma today for "good government"- government that is efn-
clent and at the same time is conducted along business principles,
securing for the people of the state the greatest possible benefits for
the minimum amount expended.
During the next several years, while the state capitol building is
being constructed, there will be special need for a Strom head of th-
state administration a man of strong administrative ability and at the
game time superior business judgment. Judge Williams possesses these
qualifications to a marked degree, a fact that is so generally recognized
as to create the great popular demand that he give his services to th*
state In that capacity.
Williams for Governor" means "good government for Oklahoma
t SHAMEFUL CONDITION
The debauch of wild extravagance and corruption in the Cook county
board, coBtlng several million dollars a year, and against which a minor-
ity led by President A. A. McCormlok and Colonel Daniel Moriarty has
Btubbornly fought, has become Chicago's most dramatic play. The con-
stant attendance of committees of women only modified the fisticuffs, ob-
scenity and profanity of the majority members, but the final report of the
women shows that the boldest of brigandage has been part of the official
"management" of the county's affairs. The report of the Women's Com-
mission 011 Public Affairs stated: "For years the administration of county
affairs has been a source of shame and regret to all thoughtful minds,
and it has remained for 1914 to discover a condition so preposterous, so un-
believedly corrupt and o unspeakably low that the public finally has
arisen In Its wrath and with righteous indignation demands Justice and
seekB the remedy. It is a matter of common knowledge that county of-
fices have been considered for years perquisites of political parties. It
therefore has been considered advisable to increase the number of jobs and
the salaries paid each as much as possible.'
