WILSON WIM. WIN
The News pieduts that on next
Tue-day. AliKUt 1 the Demoi'iats
of Oklahoma will nominate It. H. Wil
son as their candidate for (ioeinor
of Oklahoma, to repie-enl the party
in the Kineral election to come in
Our reasons for this belief aie
numerous, but we can summarize the
whole situation in a few words.
Fiist. Wibon is the one man of
those askinjr the nomination who is
conceded as stiont; enough to defeat
the finely organized Republican ma
chine at the Keneral elections. The
Republicans would trade their "birth
right" for the privclcge of elcctinc
the Governor, and, to be sure, will
center their whole forces upon that
raco. WiNon's personal popularity,
his stronu vigorous personality his
twelve years of clean and successful
public service make him the dominant
candidate for the nomination anil the
party's strong man. with whom to
win in the fall.
The campaign now ending has been
a peculiar one, with situations hard
to place, and candidate's strength dif
ficult to find. There has been "mud
slinging" from different angles but
from Mr. Wilson has come none of it.
His campaign speeches have been de
voted to the big public issues of the
day, and to his proposals for the cor
rection of some of the failings of our
State government as it now is. Stu
dents of government and of economics
have found these proposals bioad.
comprehensive and far reaching;
abounding in helpful possibilities for
the betterment of our State as a
whole antl its citizenship as individ
uals. The Democrats of Oklahoma, we
believe, appreciate the clean cut and
gentlemanly campaign made by .Mr.
Wilson, and by their votes on Aug
ust first, will 'o ret mil themselves.

vote for men who hc-muili the ihar.ic

THK WHIIM'INO POST.
William J. I'mkeiton. the famous
veteian deteitive, is quoted ns deilai
ing that "the whipping post is the
best remedy for eiime."
I'erhaps it is. Hut the best argu
ment against the whipping post as a
legal nroiess of punishment is not
based upon its effects upon criminals.
its influence was brutalizing upon tne
community in general.
The revival of thu whipping post
now would be u long step backward
towaid that state of society which
sanctioned toture and mutilation of
human bodies for the supposed deter
rent effect upon persons inclined to
break the laws.
Crime never was so common as in
the days when punishment was cruel.
The greatest sufferer in case of the
revival of the whipping post would
not be the offender who was lashed,
but the community ut large.
