Which Way is it Traveling.
The people of Oklahoma have
seen the spectacle of a great
political party, a party that
aspires, as we are told, to guide
the destinies of a million and a
half of people, and the party
that for lo, these many years has
been preaching to us the benefits
of statehood, mount its steed to
ride, with the cantle of the sad-
dle forward, and the rider’s face
toward the crupper, and as the
procession moves asks the people
to follow it Before we join its
rwych, let us see which way it
intends to travel.
In its convention at Tulsa last
week it resolved against the con-
stitution in bitter terms, then
tells us through that party lies
the road to stateoood. Do they
hope to defeat the
know that the corporations that
have waxed fat off the people of
Oklahoma do not want statehood,
and they know these same cor-
porations control the politicians
who control the Republican party
Hence we are treated to the
spectacle of a party trying to
ride backward on a steed trying
to go forward, but in truth
which is tied fast by the corpo-
rate interests in such a way that
its only movement is a continu-
ing circle, and the starting of
each succeeding campaign finds
it at the same point from which
it started in the campaign gone
“YOU CANNOT TELL BY
THAT SNAKE’S TRACK
WHETHER IT IS GOING
SOUTH OR COMING BACK.”
And we don’t think its attitude
is going to fool any considerable
number of people, either.
The people of Oklahoma want
statehood; they also want to see
the corporate influence curbed,
and they know that to vote for

to.penalize their corporate crea-
tures. That course does not cure
anything. History is filled with
attempts to make certain eco-
mic views prevail by imprisoning
men who would not act in accor-
dance with such views. They
have all been failures. The
only way to regulate economic
affairs is by economic regulations
not by criminal ones.
