VINITA DAILY CHIEFTAIN.
VOL XIV. NO. 144. VINITA, OKLAHOMA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15. 1912. FIVE CENTS PER COPY SENATOR WORKS F Washington, D. C, Oct. 15. United j SUteB Senator John D. Works of Cali-, fornia today issued a signed statement J charging the progressive third party movement in California with gross fraud and asking all progressive re publicans to vote for Governor Wilson fo.r president. He also pointed out the impossibility of the republican carry ing California for Taft because of the manner in which the Bull Moose lead ers of that state fraudulently entered and captured the republican primaries, and he advised all republicans in Cal ifornia and In other states -where Taft electors are not on the republican bal lot, to vote for Wilson. Senator Works outlined the manner in which the Roosevelt men, not en titled to a place on the 'ballot at the primary election, caused their candi dates and voters to swear that they were republicans in order to enter the republican primary to nominate for office on the republican ticket men who were not republicans, but mem bers of the Third party. The statement pointed out that these persons, by means of false affidavits, obtained control of the republican state central committee of California and permitted Third party men to act in a republican convention under the laws of California to place Roosevelt electors on the republica nticket. "The new party," said Senator Works' statement, "is completely or ganized with all the necessary political machinery, and some of the men who are acting as members of the republi can committees in California are also members of working committees, of the new party. "No kind of sophistry, or evasion can conceal the fact that this whole proceeding is fraudulent. "The right and honorable thing for them to have done was to place their candidates on tht ticket as progres sives, by petition, so that every voter could vote intelligently for whom he pleased, knowing whether he was vot ing for a republican or a progressive. "They were not willing to come out fairly and boldly, as progressives. To do that they would lose the votes of progressive republicans who did not. believe in the new party and would have to surrender the power and pres tige of the republican party, which, as nroeressive reDublicans, was within their control. "The whole thing has been a con temptible deception and fraud. Much of it has been more than that. It has been a series of crimes. The candi dates who ran on the republican ticket, but who were progressives, were fraud ulently nominated and are entitled to no consideration at the hands of people who believe in honest politics. "it results that the progressives, whfl are crying out, 'Thou shalt not steal,' have by a systematic course of fraud, corruption and perjury, stolen the right of the republican party to a place on ilie ballot and deprived thou sands of voters of the right to vott for the candidate of their choice within their own party. "Then what are real progressive re publicans to do? They cannot con sistently support Taft for two reasons. He was not fairly and honestly nom inated and he does not represent pro gressive principles, or the sentiments of the masses of tht people of the country. He is reactionary himself, honestly, I believe, and with good in tentions, but worse than that he is advised and largely governed and con trolled by the worst class of trust mag nates, reactionaries of the privilege seeking class, and corrupt political manipulators and bosses in the coun try. "Roosevelt is equally impossible. He is too new a convert to progressive principles to trust' with the leadership of a new party if its object is to ad vance and maintain those principles. He has never until now stood openly CHARGES RAD RAINCOATS CRAVENETTES And all Wet Weather Clothing and Hats for Men, Women and Children $14 Wen's Shop Made Boots MILFORD - BERGER SHOE COMPANY for progressive principles. "He is all things to all men to get votes. He has suddenly become an advocate of woman suffrage because so many of them are now voters and nave become so without his help. He never was before. "His par' - is not founded on prin ciple but upon malice, revenge and disappointed ambition. If he had been nominated by the republican conven tion, the republican party would have been good enough for him and he would have accepted and welcomed the sup port of the men in the party that he now denounces so viciously. "His new party is being managed in part and supported by as bad trust promoters and corrupt political bosses as those he accuses, and if elected it will not be by progresses' votes, but by the help of those who care nothing tor progressive principles. "The means by which he has se cured the votes of progressive iepubli cans in some of the states, notably in California and Kansas, has been fraud ulent and dihshonest. "Any progressive republican in Cali- j fornia who gives him his support with knowledge to the facts, and alt intelli gent voters must know the facts by now, makes himself a willing party to their fraudulent proceedings. No man or woman who is conscientious, and believes in honesty in politics, can sup port any candidate who secures his nomination by the means I have point ed out above. "Wilson is a real and sincere pro gressive. He has proved it by his course and conduct as a public officer and as a candidate. He is running on a sane progressive platform. "Nothing of benefit to progressive principles or honest politics can be gained by voting for either Taft or Roosevelt. The best service progres sive republicans can render to their party, and to their country, under these unfortunate circumstances, is to vote for Wilson. It will help to teach dishonest manipulators of politics a wholesome lesson. "The regular republicans, so called, will take the same course if they are wise. Taft cannot carYy California. Therefore a vote for liim is a vote for Roosevelt and the destruction of the republican party in the state. ""With the new party schemt defeat ed the republican party caa be reunited as a progressive party, as it was be fore some of Its members were led away from it into a sham progressive party, by men who assumed to be Its leaders, and who care more for politi cal success than for the honor of any party. "All good people in California should unite in the effort to rebuke the men who have resorted to this scheme of dishonest polities and to defeat every candidate who has received his nomi nation by such means, be the office for which he is a candidate high or low. This is a time to test the sincerity of people who profess to believe in hon esty in politics." Exclusive Order of American Indians. Tahlequah, Okla., Oct. 15.

COL ROOSEVELT SHOT 8Y ASSASSIN! Milwaukee, Oct. 14. Col. Theodore Roosevelt was shot and wounded to night as he was leaving the Gilpatrlck Hotel for th speech. Auditorium to make a. The wound did not prevent the ex president from making his speech. He insisted - the wound was super ficial and went on to the hall after he had seen the assassin arrested. One of Roosevelt's campulgn aids j seized the assassin and held him uutil policemen came up. A mob surged around the man, who apparently is a radical on the subject of Roosevelt's running for another term as president. The X-ray of Colonel Roosevelt's wound shows that the bullet lodged in the chest wall did not penetrate the Inhgs. The wound is not considered dan gerous. Colonel Rorlsevelt left the hospital at 11:26 p. m. He was able to walk unassisted. '1 am feeling line," he said. He will leave for Chicago before iqtdailght on a special train. The assassin, who is small of stat ure, admitted firing the shot, and said that "any man looking for a third term ought to be shot." In notes found in the man's pockets at the police station where statements that the man had been visited in a dream by the spirit of William McKin ley, who had said, indicating Colonel Roosevelt: "This is my murderer, avenge my death." "I'll-Make This Speech or Die." The colonel felt no pain at the time the shot was fired. He was not aware that the shot had taken effect until he was on the way to the Auditorium. His attention was then called to a hole in his overcoat, and he found that his shirt was soaked with blood. He insisted that he was not hurt badly. A superficial examination of the wound was made when he reached the Auditorium and three physicians agreed that he was in no immediate grae uaugci. In spite of the entreaties of physi cians, Colonel Roosevelt Insisted upon delivering his address. I'll make this speech or die, on? or the other," he said. Henry F. Cochems told the gre&t crowd which had assembled in the au ditorium that Colonel Roosevelt had been shot. He asked the people to be calm. Chicago. III., Oct. 15. A bulletin is sued by physicians this afternoon states that Col. Roosevelt's wound Is not merely a flesh wound but a '-rious not merely a flesh wound but a serious Splendid Show at Grand.

Oklahoma City, Oct. 15. For the next three weeks the democracy of Ok lahoma will conduct an aggressive campaign. For the greater part of this time all of the candidates for con gress In this state will be on the stump and Senator Oweni will speak almost constantly. Besides this there will be several speakers from the out sidt, including Senator Vardiman, of Mississippi, and Mr. Bryan, Ollie James and perhaps others. The or ganization is getting into good shape and a number of local speakers are on the stump, so that within the next three weeks every hamlet and cross road in the state will be reached by soae democratic orator. Large quan tities of literature are going out daily from state headquarters to the various county campaign committees, where in turn it is being distributed to the voters. Tho Wilson-Marshall Clubs are also playing an important part in assisting the state committee in the work of organization and the distribu tion of literature. Thus far there is little evidence of any activity on the part of the regular republican organization. There is very little straight republican speaking and if any Taft literature Is in circulation in Oklahoma, nobody at democratic state headquarters or anybody else where in the state has been informed of this fact. It is known that the Taft campaign management has abandoned Oklahoma, While the Taft managers have been informed of the sort of dou-hle-eross they have received at the hands of Hird McGutre, .ilm Harris, and Dick Morgan, they know now that there is no remedy for this condition and they are not going to waste any money or effort when whatever they might do might, be to the advantage of the Third Term candidate. They have abandoned Oklahoma as hopeless and they are leaving the stand-pat candi dates who have double-crossed the na tional ticket to sink or swim, without assistance, therefore It is not likely that Morgan and McGuire will have any national campaign money to spend in their cause this year and their faithful henchmen, who have hereto fore looked with hope and expectancy to campaign years will go empty handed this year unless McGuire and (continued on last page) Drummers' Samples from the Columbia Knitting Mills New York for Hen, Women, Boys and Girls
