The Republicans are conceding
the election of Jim Spurlock.
Good! Everybody knows he is a
Frank K. Tucker is one of the
strong men on the Democratic
ticket See that you mark your
ballot for him.
T. L. O’Bryan will receive
every Democratic vote in the
county and a good many Repub-
licans. Vote for him and secure
a county judge competent to at-
tend to the business of the office.
A campaign of mud and mis-
representation don’t cut any fig-
ure with intelligent people.
However, the Republican press
being without arguments must
bolster their cause with such vile
The Republicans are willing to
trade anything on their ticket
for votes for their candidate for
representative, but it’s no use.
1. W. Hart is the Democratic
choice and will be the represen-
tative to the first Oklahoma State
Talk abost incompetency! If
Judge O'Bryan is any more in-
competent than the present in
curr.Oent of the County Judge's
‘orfice he is indeed in a bad way.
Judge O’Bryan is every way
competent, and will be the next
Mr. Covey was found last
wee* and that bundle of consti-
tutions proved to be a bundle of
campaign thunder from Repub-
lican headquarters. We are
sorry that it was not constitu-
tionn, but perhaps the stuff Re-
publican headquarters are send-
ing out against that document
will serve the purjiose better.
The editor of the DEMOCRAT
has furnished the chairman of
the Republican county committee
a copy of the new constitution
and respectfully requests that
he read the Bame. and we are
confident that when he has done
so there will be another convert
to that document We believe
Mr. Smith ia-an honest man and
will advise hla people to read the
constitution and vote their sent!-

She is an estimable lady and her
qualifications cannot he questioned,
as her ability has been proven w
more thau one school room iu the
county in the past. The office of
county superintendent to which ehe
aspires is a most important one in
the development aud growth of a
country, as the work of that offioe
touches the very foundatiou stones
of the government in whieh we live
and the hope of future generations
is the efficient work of the teachers
iu the common schools, which come
directly under the supervision of
this office. 1 he educational insti-
tutions of the territory will be the
pride of the state, and their admin-
istratiou in this county should be in
competent aud careful hands, which
they will be should Mrs. Zimmer-
man be chosen to preside over
J. H. Spurlock.
The Democratic uomiuee for
District Clerk is one of the most
popular men iu the race for any
office within the gift of the people
of Woodward county, aud is making
ii canvass that is every day addiug
to his popularity. Mr. Spurlock is
a native of Missouri, having been
j born iu that state iu 1857 aud there
resided until 1872, when with hie
parents be removed to the state of
Colorado, there residing uutil 1894,
coming to this couuty iu that year
and locating on a claim on Persim-
mon creek where he experienced
ihe trials of those who helped blaze
tlie way to the agricultural |Kissibil-
ities that are now developing. A
tew years ago he removed to Wood-
ward aud engaged iu the livery
hueiuess, iu which he is still
engaged. Mr. Spurlock was edu-
cated in aud holds a deploma from
the school fo hard experiences, the
kind that tit men for the affairs of
liie, and is iu every way competent
and 11 null lied for the place for w hich
he is aski"g the suffrage of the
people. He has served Woodward
couuty as deputy sheriff on a num-
ber of occasions. Every acquain-
tance of Jim Spurlock’s is a friegd,
aud every frieud is a worker for his
electiou, firm in the faith that he
w ill make an official of whom the
county will always feel proud.

Mr*. Sadie Zimmerman.
I lie nominee of the DemiM'rstic
party for the office, ol Supenntea-
B. F. W llett.
The present county attorney
comes before the people of the
! county squarely upon the record he
has made while iu office. Mr.
W illett is a native of Kentucky, aud
came to this couuty several years
ago. locating on a claim where he
lived iu a dugout aud tended his
crop with his own hands Three
years ago he was nominated for the
office of county attorney, and went
into the tight, made the canvass aud
came out nearly PHI votes to the
gissl, being the only Democrat
elected at that time to a county
office He has administered the
iT lira of the u H -j to the eutire
satisfaction of a great majority of
the people of the county regardless
of party. Mr. Willett has talked
economy from the time of his nomi-
nation three years ago aud is still
talking it, aud not oulv talking it,
but has practiced it at all times iu
the administration of his office. It
had always been the practice to
bring witueshes iu to appear before
thegrand jury a week or more
ahead of the time they could be
used, but Mr Willett put a stop to
this practice, and arranged hi* court
work so' that a witness was never
brought in until he was ready for
him, and the longest grand jury
sitting under his administration was
three days. Thus thousands of
dollars have l*eeu saved to tha
people of the county. When Mr
Willett was elected there' were no
funds iu the court fund, and the
levy was thiee mills Now there is
"bout $10,(HR) available for the
court fund and the levy i* only one
mill 1 nder his administration the
county has paid witness fees, an
item never paid before, aud yet by
his dose economy and careful prep-
aration for the court terms he has
laid up 910,(KNI for the taxpayers
and reduced the levy two-thirds
He has always beeu' attentive to
Imisiuchm, aud is courteous and at-
tentive to all those who have had
business iu his office, and has saved
ag.Kidm.nj lawsuits by urging
the litigants to get together aud
settle their differences, and keep
out of court If you think thia rec-
ord entitels him to a second term
be sure that you vote for him.
