imaginary politicians have to say re
gaidiug the matter. The element
that has always attacked the idea of
several wards, wherein only a few
might choose city legislators, ol'
course, join hands for the new way.
Commission form of government is
modern. It enables the people of a:
city to have sufficient officers whom
they may recall if they become dere
lict in duty. It makes the man in,
chaige of the streets responsible;
there is no ward line shifting. It
gives to each commissioner certain
duties and holds him directly respon
sible. He must answer for the errors
ami is entitled to the credit, when
such is merited. He works for the
fit y only. He is paid for it and can
noi haw- other jobs. He must ac

CAMPAIGN AFFAIRS
Th" next state campaign will be
much different than is expected by
professional officeseekers and office
malcrs. There will be a plain issue
involving handling of stale affairs,
cost ami value of the work done and
w-itii no little attention to the per
sonnel of candidaus. It is uor
boasting to affirm that unless there
i- a wide change of policy upon the
part of the organization of the Re
publilan pauy the contest will eini
with the primary which will select
Democratic candidates. No oiie of
reasoning power will believe the sy
tem of campaign as outlined by the
bushwhacking tacticians at Shawnee
can possibly gather around i! suffi
cient following to even maktt a re
spectable showing among the voters
of this state. To imagine the people
o Oklahoma are going to follow any
organization that seems to have for
its highest purpose the securing of
as many Federal appointments as pos

Third floor where the Bargain Carnival is being
held had more than its share-- -There every rem

chandise is congregated and is selling at half price
and less---among todays shoppers were two ladies
who thought so well of our remnants that they
each bought over $15.00 worth.
In this ad we quote no new prices, but we have
hundreds of dollars worth of Genuine Clearance
Bargains that were not on sale the first day---Every

be sold and sold in this sale---One customer made
the remark, "Well, you surely don't intend to car

them?" And that expresses it.
