VINITA DAILY CHIEFTAIN.
VOL XIV. NO. 145. VINITA, OKLAHOMA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16. 1912. FIVE CENTS PER COPY DAVENPORT IS. WANTS DEBATE Congressman Davenport Insists on Re publican Nominee Making Declar ation on Real Issues. The following letter was addressed to Hon. R. T. Daniel, the republican nominee for congress fro mthe Third district by Hon. James S. Davenport, the democratic nominee for congress this week. Tulsa, Okla., Oct. 14, 1912. Hon. R. T. Daniel, Tulsu Okla. My Dear Mr. Daniel: You and 1 are candidates for the same office at the election to be held on November 5, 1912. As such candi dates, I believe it to be our duty to let the voters of the Third congressional district of Oklahoma know our posi tion upon the questions affecting them. Since the convening of the Sixty second congress I have worked for and supported bills which I believe to be hi the interest of the American con sumer. The following is a list of some of the most Important bills that I have supported : XL. Placing lumber on the free list. 2. Reducing the tariff on wool and products. :;. 'aeing of agricultural imple fcoSU on the free list. 4. The election of United States Senators by dfrect vote of the people. 5. Reducing the tariq on cotton manufactured products, chemicals, steel mid iron products, 6. Placing sugar on the free list. 7. Construction of good roads. 9. Prohibiting convict labor from competing with American labor. 10. An 8-hour day law for American labor on all public works and an anti injunction law. 11. (establishing a children's bu reau. 12. Excise tax on incomes which bill if it had become a law would have placed some the burden of taxation .ipon those having large incomes. 1U. For removal of restrictions up on the Indian lands in he Five Civiliz ed Tribes except a homesead of the full-bloods. 14. For winding up the affairs of the Five Civilized Tribes and dispos ing of he government control over the Indians in Oklahoma. 1 also introduced a bill for an ap propriation to improve the Arkansas river so as to make it navigable which bill is still pending before the com mittee on rivers and harbors. If I am returned to congress, 1 shall vote for the passage of the bills enum t rated above that were not passed by the house and for those that were passed by the house and vetoed by the president should the opportunity arise. You have been in the campaign seek ing the suffrage of he voters of the Third congressional district since, Aug ust fi, 1912, and I have not seen any statement from you as to your posi tion upon any national question. You have had prepared and publish ed a booklet entitled: 'Thoughts for Thinkers," "Something Worth While tor Men Worth While, About a Man Worth While," "A Tabloid Tale of a Manly Man." "Facts About One Who Has Made Good in the Past." Why you are withholding this booklet, you have had prepared and published, from he voters, no one but yourself can ex plain. Upon examination of the book let I find that ti is made up of epigrams tabloids, eulogies and extracts of com mendation from various newspapers in the district,' but you do not give views tr the voters upon any national ques tion. You fail to state whether or not you stand upon the platform of the republican party adopted at Chicago who selected as its standard bearer Honorable William Howard Tai't, our president, or whether you stand upon the platform adopted at Chicago who selected as its standard bearer Colonel Theodore Hoosevelt. have no hesi tancy In stating to you that I stand on and adopt as my platform the plat form adopted by the democratic na tional convention at Baltimore and if you want to be fair and honest with the voters of the Third congressional district, you should say to them open ly whether you are standing on and en dorsing the platform upon Which Mr. Tatt is running for president or the platform on which Colonel Roosevelt is running. In your epigrams you seem to have no hesitancy in giving the voters of the Third district your views as to how you stand with your feathered friends, stating, as you do, on page eleven of the booklet: "Among my feathered friends an angel stands first; the American eagle second." You also seem to have no hesitancy in stating your views with reference u what society does for criminals, on page eleven you state your views frankly and say: , "If it were not for society preparing a crime there would be no criminal to commit it." On page twelve of your booklet you are frank and stato your views with reference to cats as follows: "If you live with cats you will soon scratch like one. Why you are not as frank with the people about issues that interest them as you are about giving your views with reference to feathered friends, so ciety preparing criminals and living with cats, you alone are able to ex plain. 1, therefore, challenge yo uto a joint discussion of the following questions, all of which I stand for and will sup port if I am returned to congress as the representative of the people of tin Third congressional district: 1. I favor the removal of restric tions upon the lands of the Indians of the Five Civilized Tribes except a homestead for the full-boods. 2. I favor the immediate passage of laws vesting the jurisdiction with reference an handling the Indians' property in. Oklahoma in the courts of the state and winding up the affairs of the Indians of the Five Civilized Tribes, so far as government officers are concerned in Oklahoma. :l. I stand for the enforcement of the laws of the state or Oklahoma as they appear in the statutes until they have been set aside by the supreme court of the United States. 4. I will vote to place on the free list all goods hat are manufactured, or controlled by the trusts and will vote for reduction of the tariff on all manufactured articles to a revenue basis. As you have not expressed yourself on any of the subjects mentioned, 1 deem it necessary and believe it to be our duty that we jointly discuss these quest' ns so that the voters may know who are most competent to represent them in the halls of congress, as that is the place you cannot hire any one to make the argument, for you. We should discuss these questions iu at least six joint discussions. 1 leave it to you to fix the time and place of three of them and as soon as I hear from you I will select the other three places. I shall expect a reply from you by the morning of the 16th at my headquarters in your home city, Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is a district where the citizen ship is intelllgen and want to know what a man stands for. They are not in favor of placing dollars above abil ity, nor is there any of our citizens who can be bribed or bought to cast their vote. I'nder our present law there is a limitation upon the expenditures for campaign punposes and I take this method of suggesting to you that in the recent primary you far exceeded the amount allowed by law as you well know, and 1 also take this method of advising you that I am In possession of the facts of your contemplated ac tion on, election day in the respective precincts throughout the district and I also desire to suggest to you that $100.00 to the precinct, as oulined by you and agreed upon by your sugges t continued on last page) BOSTON WINS C AMPIONSHIP P A ft V Q tf Si PC WITH UGHT TURN S0LES SAMPLE LINES: Work Shoes Children's Shoes Cravenette Overcoats SRECIAL LOW PRICES M1LF0RD BERGER SHOE COMPANY IN TEN INNING STRUGGLE Mathewson Pitches Game of His Life in Final Struggle-Bedient Releived in Eighth By Wood-Hendrichson With Doable Drives in Bostons First Score in Seventh and Saves Game -For First Time Eight Games are Required to Settle Championship.

Such a victory is no credit u a town or school but it takes all kinds of people to make up a world and VI nita seems to have her full share of roughnecks. There was indeed quite a contrast between Vlnita's treatment by the local boys and spectators last year in this city and the treatment that our boys received at Vinita Fri day Our boys and spectators treated i the Vinita team like gentlemen, while VIi ita treated our boyB like dogs and I we will play again at Vinita when the j "elephants roost in the trees." I .lohu Hall officiated for Claremore !and Dr. Jackson, whom we wish to state was square and against whom I we hold no hard feeling. Also Master son whom we cast a few remark against two years ago was on the square this year. At tile end of the name llatise protested the name grounds that the plavi rs of the E. U. P. S. were interfered with by the spec tators, cursing of the E. 11. P. S. team by the Vinita players, Vinita coach appearing on the held during play and various other good and valid reasons.

Again last night the Todd Players made a decided hit with the local theatre goers, when they presented n splendid comedy drama, "New Eng land Folks." The play last night was entirely different from that of Monday night and gave the members of the company a great opportunity to show their ability in character work. The seating capacity of the house was test ed last night and it is probable each night will see a house full to see this company. 1 Wilson-Marshall Club of Mayes County Holds Big Democratic Rally at Chouteau.

Williams Stock Company Coming to the Grand. The Williams Stock company, the first stock company that played the Grand, will open a week's engagement starting next Sunday.

CLAREMORE PREPS 81 VINITA HIGH The management of the high school athletic association wish to take this means of denying the charges made by the Claremore football players that they were given a dirty deal here last Friday. The following, which was taken from' the Claremore Progress, gives out an impression that is a great injustice to the Vinita boys. Among the other untruths reported by last Friday's visitors, thfey said that they were given poor treatment by the off'l cials and were hindered in their play ing by the spectators. In reality, dur ing the first half of the game, the Vi nita players were forced to submit to all kinds of decisions from Claremore's referee, and had a number of plays blocked by him. Claremore mr.de the majority of their gains by crawling and by the aid of their referee, Mr. Tom Hall. The report circulated by the so-called school team from Claremore, will have absolutely iu effect upon the reputation of the Vinita high school because the other schools of the state have been here and are always glad to return and know that it is not our custom to treat a visiting team as the "Preps" claim they were treated. They have also played Claremore ,nd know that they nevPr lose a game without letting "P their same old whine of a dirty deal. 7 The following is what Claremore says: Protest Game. The E. U. P. S. footbn!! team went to Vinita Friday and played the Vinita high school at that place, and as usual, the spectators handed out a dirty deal to our hoys when they saw that their team could not win. Hause, Claremore's crack right half, was the first to cross the lint iu the game for a score, lie made the first touchdown for the E. U. P. S. in the first quarter of play, after a brilliant run of 40 yards. Vinita also scored one touchdown in the first quarter, and as long as Vinita had an even show of winning, the spectators behaved real nively, that is, as far as any Vinita spectator is able to do. In the second quarter of the game after a series of line plunges, Hause again crossed the goal line for Claremore's second and last, touchdown in the game. Clift at this juncture booted the hall over the cross bar for a goal, making the score II! to 6, having failed to kick the first goal, in favor of the E. U, P. S. Then the run started. The rough neck element and loughs of Vinita. seeing their team in the rear, thought this was the signal for them to take their part in the game, and much to the shame of Vinita and es pecially their officers, proceeded to do so. K After having penalized the E. U. P. S. 50 yards to Vlnita's 0 in the first half in an endeavor to be square, as they said, they continued to play square In the last half in the same pro portionate manner. Some of Claremore's players, having been raised a pet an dnot being used to such rough treatment, became petu lant and were inclined to raise a few objections as to the treatment which they were receiving but were Imme diately silenced by such remarks as, "Aw, shut up, you slew-footed, mutt heal, or I'll cave your slats in," which at various intervals they tried to do. We will pass quietly over the numer ous fracases which took place and stale only that Clareniorc's players did not flourish on such treatment, not being dogs; but gentlemen and consequently Vinita piled up two more touchdowns with the assistance of the REMOVAL SALE Ladies' $8.50 Serge Dresses $5.98 Perfect fitting dresses of all wool French and Storm Sertre in black, brown, tan, navy cop. and wine.
