No more Haskell buttons are to be

committee The sentiment against

over the atat ethat the votera refuae to
accept the buttons with the picture of
the boss and the aupply has l>een wasted

"Haskell and the conatitution," Is not
taking well, and the campaign commit
tee has designed a button with the atars
and st ripen for campaign purposes.
Haskell haa scattered thousands upon
thousands of buttons over the state, yet
not many can be seen on the coats of
Oklahoma voters, and the chilly atrno*
phero is being felt by the other candl
dates on the state ticket and a great
cry haa gone up to discard "Haskell and
the constitution" and make individual
fights for election.
The refusal of Haskell to appear upon
the stump with other candidates does
not make the running mates of the
"Boss Dictator" very enthusiastic for
the head of the ticket, and there have
been some stormy scona about the head
quartern In Oklahoma City. There are
a great many stories going the rounds
about the manner in which HiwkeU haa
dictated the actions of the state com
mlttee, absoutely ignoring the interests
of the other candidates for state office.

Judge Henry W. Scott, who served up.
on the bench in Oklahoma during the id
ministration of President c^velund, is in
the city as legal representative of the
promoters of the Kansas City, Lawton
and l'a,clfic railroad, a line of road pro-
posed to be built from the Pacific coast,
at a point near San Diego, to Kansas
City. Mo., through Oklahoma in a south.,
westerly direction, entering at the north-
east corner and running entirely through
Judge Scott is well known to the earl-
ier settlers of the state, as he was one
of the foremoat Jurlata of the etorrny days
following the opening and the settling of
the many questions which were brought
before the courts for hearing. Since leav„
ing the territory Judge Scott has traveled
extensively, and for the past year haa
been handling the preliminary details,
as well as serving as attorney for the
railroad which he ia now Interested in.
He haa Just returned from a trip through
the western states traversd by the road,
and says all the detalla are complete so
far na they can be until after the okla
homa political situation ia cleared up.
Judge Scott is vitally interested in >he
proposed conatitution for the new atate,
and is very anxious to see the muddle
in which the atate Is Involved settled.
After giving the constitution close study
Judge Scott is fearful lest the specula-
tive legislation which has found its way
into the proposed fundamental law of
the atate, will retard the investment of
oapltal to auch an extent that tht devel-
opment of the country will not be as
fast aa conditions ahould warrant.
"I have alwaya Jealously studied the
the interests of Oklahoma with some
thing akin to the feeling of a parent to
a child. Oklahoma has seemed to be the
greatest and most proaperoua child ia
the whole American family, and its fu-
ture holds unlimited poasibllltlea. There,
fore the adopton of the constitution
should be a matter wholly apart from
politics. Rvery person in the state la In-
ntereated in the fundamental law which
will govern the state, and ahould jealous-
ly guard the future intereata of the whole
people without regard to preaent condi-
tiona and Immediate advantages, but
with an eye entirely guided by the fu
ture. A conatitution is noteasily amend-
ed, and therefore should be adopted on.
ly after mature deliberation.
Constitutor Is Speculative
"The conatitution of Oklahoma contains
many provialons which are speculative
and the result of their operation may os
of great injury In the development of
the country by keeping capital out. Tho
whole world of Investors hav© their eyos
on the great southwest, and are water-
ing and studying every political and com-
mercial question which will have a bea.-.
ing upon investments both for the im-
mediate future and for years to com*.
' The conatitution, lu my Judgment, woj J
have been far more acceptable had
many of its provisions been left for tne
legislatures of the years to come t.<
handle in the diacretion of the events
of the hour, rather than far in advance
in a speculative way. What the constitu.
tion does not prohibit can be handled
by the legislatures with better wisdom
than by a body of law makers of today.
"In a country which has developed
Oklahoma has, the least Constitutional
limitations placed upon the legslaturcs
the better the conditions can be tnel
as they present themslvs for solution. If
the conatitution is prohibitive along ev.
ery imaginable line of legislation, then
the legislature cannot meet condltiona
aa they exist without the great difficulty
of submitting amendments to the people,
and consuming many years in adjusting
the laws to meet the needs of the hour.
The Legislatures Left Powerless
"Ihe constitution framera of Oklahoma
have taken loo much from the legisla
turea of the future. They acted, doubt
l*ss. upon the theory that toe law.uiaK
ing bodies of the years to follow will be
Incompetent «nd corrupt, and unless
bridled will saddle upon the people laws
which will not bo framed honestly.
"The leg'alative bodies of the future
will doubtless be as honest and conacen-
tlous as those of the past, meeting ev-
ery need of the people. Therfore, would
It not better to use the utmost care in
adoptng the proposed constitution. Would
i not be better to wait and frame a
duRklagnentaJ y which |-rovi(to |tm_
ply for the present needs of the state,
and allow the leglslauton of the future
to be solved by the development and
commercial interests of the atate as th*
yeara roll around
"While I am a democrat, the question
of adopting a constitution is too serious
a question to be considered along party
lines, but if I was a voter In the new
s ate I would register my vote agaln-jt
the propoaed instrument, believing that
the delay of a few months will be le*s
dangerous than to attempt to amend the
conatitution after its adopion.
Had Chance to Fix Blunders
"The convention had an opportunity \o
amend it at the las fitting to satisfy
the most critical mind, but they failed
to do this and thertfore are not entitled
to the bene-llt of the doubt. If the peo-
ple of the new state adopt the constitu.
tlon, It is my belief as a lawyer that
they will realize the obstructions too late
to remedy the avils which must neces-

Oklahoma City. Aug. 23.—Reports here
from various portions of the proposed
new state indicates that N. O. Turk of
Checotah, is making rapid gains in his
race for lieutenant governor of the
proposed new state. The standing and
character of his democratic oppoent,
George Bellamy of El Reno, is thoroughly
known In most parts of the state.
M-r. Turk was born In Missouri and
although of democratic parentage, he
espoused the principles of republican-
ism In early youth and has always been
a staunch advocate of his party. The
principal part of his life hn« been spent
on the ranges of the west, where he
has been engnegd In stock raining. He
was amonc the first to come to the In-
dian Territory and fenced off one of
the first pastures on the Creek border
near Checotah, where he has lived since
March 6. 18f>0.
He has always been prominently
