R. K. Warren for County Attorney.
One of the most important offices within the
ipft of the citizenship of the state of Oklahoma
n that of County Attorney. This is true by rea-
son of the fact that under the constitution and
laws of he state the duty of prosecuting violators
of the state's laws of every form and charactei
is placed upon the shoulders of the county attor-
ney. Hence it is important that the man whe
fills that position should be efficient, capable
well versed in the law, and possessing sufficient
ability to cope with the ablest and best lawyer.'
at the bar. Such a man is Robert K. Warren oj
Fort Towson, who is asking the Democratic
nomination for the office of county attorney o
Choctaw county at the primary to be held nexl
Tuesday. Mr. Warren has been a practicing
attorney for many years, and in addition to hi;
excellent knowledge of the law, he is an oratoi
of marked ability and one of the most forcefu
speakers in Choctaw county. His splendic
knowledge of the criminal laws of the state is an
other meritorious qualification in Bob Warren':
favor. With a man like that in the office o.
county attoreny the prospect of useless and un
necessary prosecutions will be avoided, and a
the same time all guilty offenders may bt
brought to justice. Mr. Warren is a man of ex
cellent morals, and if elected can always bt
found at his post of duty, ready and willing t(
serve the people. He has made a thorough can
vas of the county and now on the eve of the
nominating primary he issues this appeal to his
friends and law abiding citizens to stand firm
and go to the polls and cast their vote for him
That his chances of election are assured is gen-
erally conceded, and his opponents , realizing
this, are resorting to every method known in
petty politics to secure his defeat. For that rea-
son it is important that the people disregard aL
unfavorable repors and ignore any effort tc
form a grame-up in favor of any other candi
date. All votes cast for Mr. Warren will be duly
appreciated by him, and if elected the most scru-
pulous citizen will never have cause to be asham-
ed of their county attorney.— (Political Adv.)

W. P. Huskey for Register of Deeds. H&
I take this method of announcing myself as a
candidate for register of deeds of Choctaw coun
ty, and ask the voters of the county to give me
their consideration at the polls in the primary
and in the general election in November.
I was born in Sevier county, Tennessee, Jul}
16, 1872, and moved with my parents to Mis-
souri when I was quite small, living there until
I was 18 years of age, when I came to Texas
locating at Paris; I worked in and around Paris
for about ten years. I decided that I needed a
better education, so I entered Mahan's Commer-
cial College, at Sherman, Texas, paving my way
by working mornings before school and even
ings after school. Later I attended the West-
ern Normal and Business College at Garland.
Texas, paying my way there as I did in the
I feel that my education will enable me to per-
form the duties of the office of register of deeds
as well as anyone in the county. I am not ask
ing for the office simply for the honor and glory
there is in it, but for the salary as well, and il
elected will devote ALL MY TIME TO THE
PERFORMANCE OF THE DUTIES OF THE
OFFICE. I WILL NOT ASK THE PEOPLE TC
PAY A CLERK'S SALARY IF IT BE POSSI-
BLE FOR ME TO DO THE WORK.
I respectfully ask the people to consider my
claim when they cast their ballot.
Yours for good and efficient sen-ice,

the fact that in the selection of the officials o
county, fitness and efficiency are the chief es
sentials to be considered, and with his long ex
perience in the office of county clerk. Mr. Milan
has a vast advantage over his opponents. Mr
Milam will appreciate the vote of every man whe

sheriff of this county, and appealing to the
democratic voters for their suffrage at the pri-
mary, August 6th.
I had intended to make a personal canvass of

to time have I faltered in doing it, and have
triven to work with as little expense to the
axpayers as I could and do efficient work.
I know there has been criticism. I know, al-
o, that such may be expected, but at the close
)f nineteen months service .1 can say that the
vork has been done faithfully and at all times
o the best of my ability.
It has been my purpose to work without os-
entation, my main effort being to serve the
people at the least possible cost. As a peace
jfficer I have striven to maintain order, doing
.vhat I could to oring about good government.
There has been.no bandstand effort to attract
ittention, but the record shows that we have

It will not be my good fortune to talk over
he affair with the majority, but my record is

I would not, to secure my election, make wild
jromises which could not be fulfilled.
I know the duties of a sheriff, and know also
