STATE OFFICE NOTES
Comrades who are or become
sens of one state to represent another
stato, it would be no time until ma-
chines or combines would be built
and that would be detrimental to
the best Interests of the Socialist
party. As we all know. It Is usually

tee for his services, but merely that I speaker or writer that is “

as any others, but they consider that
by casting their ballot they have done
their full duty. In this they are mis-
taken. TfifJ sintily dont real Ire the
necessity M, organization and taking
pan in the management of party ar-
fairs. There are stronger features to
be considered than the mere casting of
a vote viz: “Education and Organiza-
tion ” ’ A ballot cast which is not
backed by an intelligent understand-
ing of the Socialists alms and pur-
poses is dangerous Indeed. A party
that teaches co-operation and prac*
tlces individuality is bound to be a
failure. A house divided against itself
will surely fall. The Socialist party,
being a working class party, must be
financed by the workers, and it must
be done systematically and as eco-
nomically as possible. The Democrat,
Republican and Bull Moose parties are
representatives of the Capitalist Class
and get their revenues from that
source. The capitalists therefore dic-
tate the policy they are to pursue.
The Capitalist class politicians are
ever hungry for power and "pie and
do not care how it is achieved. They
would just as soon be in office on a
Socialist ticket as any other, and as a
rule, being sleek-tongued and well
versed in political trickery, would soon
forge to the front ranks in our move-
ment. The movement has reached
that point where it is being considered
a strong factor in this State and needs
protection from annihilation h\ these
political parasites and in order to
guard against such occurrence!, the
Socialist party constitution provides
as follows: . _
National Constitution, Art. in. Sec.
9._No person shall be nominated or
indorsed by any sub-division of the
party for candidates for public offices,
unless he is a member of the party or
has been such for at least two years.
But this provision shall not apply to
organizations which havs been in ex-
istence for less than two years.
State Constitution, Sec. 62—No mem-
ber of the party shall announce him-
self a candidate for a political of-
fice. Any member who advocates
hi* own nomination shall be deemed
ineligible and liable to expulsion.
Sec. 63—Before any member can be
declared a candidates for public office
he shall sign and file w-ith the proper
committee an undated resignation as
a candidate and also a resignation of
the office for which he Is a candidate.
Sec 64—All public officers elected
upon a Socialist ticket shall be subject
to the imperative mandate and recall
through the referendum. Any officer
refusing to submit to such imperative
mandate or recall shall have his re-
signation filed with the proper author-
ity and be expelled from the party. He
shall not again be eligible for nomina-
tion for any public office till he shall
have been a member in good standing
in the party for a period of five con-
Sec 65—Any member accepting any
nomination for any political office in
violation of any of the provisions of
this constitution shall stand expelled
by this act, and the secretary shall
notify all locals of such fact
Sec gg—Candidates of the Socialist
party for political offices shall refrain
from campiagning for individual pref
ernment or election. A11 efforts of the
partv candidates and the party organ-
ization shall be in behalf of the party
principles and the election of the party
ticket as a whole.
Sec. 67—Any Socialist candidate for
public office, or other party member,
who makes, or offers to make, any
trade or fusion or alliance of a politi-
cal nature with any candidate or other
person or of any other political party,
shall be expelled in accordance with
the provisions of this constitution.
Now. Comrades, without the above
protection, our party is bound to get
corrupted, infested with a bunch of po-
litical office seekers, and when put in
power will prove a dismal failure. In
order to carry out our principles it is
necessary to have a strong organiza-
tion, working co-operatively for the
benefit of all.
If you are not a dttes-paying member
of the party you must not expect to
have a voice or vote in its management
and policy. The line has to be drawn
The proper thing to do is to join
the local, help finance the organiza-
tion and make it what it should be in
the minds of all honest people.
From reliable sources we learn that
the proposed poll tax and new primary
election laws are going to die a natural
death, thanks to activities of the So-
cialist organization in sending in the
strongest protest ever presented to the
legislature in this state. Merely proves
what effective results can be accom-
plished through a good working or-

Having been elected Woman s State

Oklahoma lined up In the social revo-
lution and in the front.
In past bloody revolutions, women
were left at home to endure ail the
hardships of attending to and adminis-
tering to the needs of the family but in
our voting revolution we women can
do as much as our brothers (when we
are allowed to vote! and it Is our duty
to aid in organizing ourselves Into
working committees and aiding the So
cialist locals in each community. w e
can educate ourselves so we can use
the ballot intelligently. I want to get
in touch with women comrades lrt each
local I want to know how many lo-
cals in the state that women are pay

strike breakers, scabs, detectives,
pimps and politicians. 1.100,000; pros

Please bear in mind that out of the
wealth that labor creates « great
proportion of it is produced by out
of date machinery, that is necessarily
wasteful and is an inefficient method
of producing wealth Add to this the
wealth destroyed needlessly by bat
tleships. forts and ru-uiitions of war
that would be unnecessary under a co-
operative system. Add $1,500,000,000
that is spent for the prevention, de-
tection and prosecution of crime.
Think of the 3.000.000 people that are
unnecessarily sick because of tene-
ment hodses. child labor, poisoned
rood, adulterated drugs, unemploy-
ment, resulting in malutrictlon, etc.
Then think of the waste labor in du-
plicating delivery wagons, bookkkeep-
lug, police courts, fake advertising,
federal office holders, land held out
of cultivation for speculative pur-
poses which amounts in the state of
Texas alone to 4-5 of the arable land
in the state. To,all this add the un-
necessary competing railroads which
costs a billion dollars extra and then
we commence to have some idea of
the gigantic waste that occurs be-
cause of competition. It is estimated
that this waste amounts to a sum
equivalent to $40,000,000,000 or $2,500
loss to each one of the 20.000,000 fam-
ilies in the United States annually.
Fred Warren was hooted at by the
Saturday Evening l’ost and Other
capitalist journals when he said that
ttnder a cooperative order of society
each worker would receive $2,000 a
year and a six hour werk day. To
The Rebel it‘would appear that our
comrade considerably under-estimated
the amount that would accrue to each
worker did we but have universal co
oiteration instead of anarchistic com

to have it abolished and struggles

meant an opening for many incompe
tent landless farms, who are not ad-
apted to farming, and who could not
get a lease on any terms In other
states. „, .
Business is suffering in Oklahoma
oil account of inefficient farming. In
this state agriculture Is the single
great recourse for tonnage for the
railroads. Interest for the money lend
ers. profits for the merchants. There
must, for the success of commercial-
ism, be goods to ship out of the coun-
and there must be buyers to
bring goods into the country.
When this moving of commodities
slackens it Is the same thing as a
panic; but, in this case, due to the
wrong system of farm exploitation.
An inefficient system of farming. In a
country dependent upon agriculture,
i leans a decline in hanking and rail-
road stocks, and it means bankruptcy
for the merchants.—And the commer-
cial class of Oklahoma have already
woke up to this fact.
Scientific agriculture has become
necessarv. But a tenant, first, cannot,
and second, will not build up another
man’s farm. As a result there is a
movement among the business class,
that reached the gossip stage, to re-
fuse the tenants any encouragement
and assistance, and aimed to drive
the tenants out of the state-—and it
will work—when the money lenders
and the merchants cut off the tenants'
credit, then the tenant is doomed The
Intention of the commercial class Is
to boom Oklahoma in other states and
attracts farmers with enough money to
buy and own their own farms.
But the commercial class, while they
will bring about an adequate system,
It will fail to bring it about by a sys-
tem of small farm owners—It will,
first of all, take a whole generation or
time to educate enough individual
farmers In scientific agriculture to do
anv practical good; besides le,ss than
one i>er cent of the farmers were
horn with the ability to superintend
in the required executive work >nd at
ht same time perform the labor that
requires just bull strength of muscle.
Among these farmers voluntary co-op-
leratlon is a failure, hence they a-'
jincapabh of defending themselv
ing expenses, will be advanced. The
tenant who Is inefficient will be fired
off the Job.
It will be perfectly safe, with an ex-
pert watching every day s dcvclop-
inenta and methods, for tbe-yMO ora
to advance necessary money, nBMhts
Industrial farm will employ an ex-
pert salesman to take the products to
market, and It will be the landlord,
and not the tenant that will se l tne
products, and after keeping out, with
interest, what has been charged up to
the tenant, the tenant will *e t;!ven
the rest—After tt few experiments,
what the tenant will get will be just
a poor living on a share plan, and
perhaps later by a wage system. This
same scheme Is now being worked suc-
cessfully in the state of Texas on the
farm of Mr. PreBton Austin, consist-
ing of 35,000 acres.
However, all roads lead to Social-
ism. By such a system nothing re-
mains for the Socialists to do except
to eliminate the private owners of thl*
Invested farm trust and for the state
to own and the actual farmers to
choose their own officials and turn the
benefits of the scheme back to the

legally by ballot.
E. Edwards, a Socialist, was elected
last November to the office of trustee
of Doyle township by a majority of 43
votes." Edwards proceeded to make a
bond, according to law, equal to twice
the amount of the money to be han-
dled, the necessary bond being one
thousand dollars. At this point Ed-
wards was compelled by the county
commissioners, contrary to usual prac-
tice, to provide a two thousand dollar
However, the Socialist-elect procured
the Inflated document, duly signed by
financially responsible men, and
turned the same over to the county
clerk, who in turn presented the bond
to the county commissioners.
And here is where the g*ng went on
record openly for incompetency lu
having the custody of Important pa-
pers, for, they reported later that tne
bond had been stolen. But that ln-
competency In the end turns out to be
malpractice, In Uh broadest sense,

ers not to recognize nor seat the So-
