Woodward has been my home since
the lttth day of Sept., 18 3. The prop
erty I own is the result of hard work
and strict attention to business.
I have been a life long Democrat and
heartily believe m the principles laid
down in the Denver 1908 Platform
along with ths Muskogee and Tulsa
Platforms of the same year. I heartily
endorse the provisions of the Oklahoma
Constitution. The Initiative and Re-
ferendum makes a Government by the
people a reality.
I am in favor of the enforcement of
all laws that will make the people of
my country better men and women
and conduce to the upbuilding of our
utlienahip. Hhe'separate school and
coach laws are necessary to our civi-

erned by intelligence instead of ignor-
ance and to obtain and carry out the
highest form of government, the super-
ior race must control.
I believe the American Indian cai be
developed by education to equal an}'
race, and favor the upbuilding instead
of the degradation of the original own-
ers of this country.
The war is over, one country ons
people, one Hag. Ths ltfws shoald be
made for the whoVpeople.

The lights of labor and capital
should be so recognised that each

water power and minerals, for the use

In conclusion. I am for Oklahoma,
.last and all the tiire'and if I arii
elected as your Congressman. I shall be
opposed to "Cannonism" which takes
away the power of the representative
and makes him a dummy in the hands
of a tyrant. To preserve our liberty, \
the National Congress must be repre- ■
sentatives of all parts of our. great j
Country, and not as now under the
thumb of a few dictators living en the
Atlantic Coftst. ^
The instructions of my party and the i
people of this District and state shall
be my delight and guiding star.
