TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION Ou Year $1.60 Eix Months .75 THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION When the Democratic National Convention ii called to order June 28, in San Francisco, there will be a political assemblage more remescn tative of the whole people than any that hai hitherto come together to select a candidate for the highest office in the United Stutcs Govern ment In view of the cordialty of the Democratic party in welcjuinc the new voters and in sharing party honors with them it has been long predicted that beneath most of the State banners women delegates, and women alternates would have seats. Lists compiled by the Women's' Bu reau, Democratic National Commit tee, prove that this forecast is sub stantially correct. Compared with the personnel of the Repuublican National Conven vention, the Democratic National Convention bears out the claim thai the party of Jefferson and Jackson if the one through which the women of the country will find it possible to work toward the highest ideals of citixenship, the party that will admit them to fullest cooperation. Up to June 1, with seven conventions still to meet, thirty women have been elected to serve aa dclcgats-at-large in San Francisco. Sixteen states have accorded the highest privilege to the new voters. Twenty-three nlternates-at-large have been sent from nine states. Half the states have been prompt to give women a voice in making the nominations, and in this important matter the public, has found reason for surprise, for in some cases unexpected generosity ha been manifested. For instance, Massachusetts, where women will not have the Presidential vote until the thirty-sixth state ratifies, selected four women as alternates-at-large and fifteen as alternates. New York, which has ninety delegates, hus jriven women substantial recognition! and sends two women as dehgates-at-largc and ten aa delegates andfarty as alternates. Missouri also hus been generous. This state hus elected four women dclegates-at-largc, five dis trict delegates and twenty alternates. The record of the present admin istration has proved that Democrats live up to the lofty principles on which their orgnlzation is built. Through the last seven years of world crises, new opportunities for the advancement of 'vomcn have been opened whenever possible, and many have attained high places in the Government service. For the first time in history women have been appointed to high offices that require confirmation by the United States Senate; for the first time they have places on the U. S. Civil Service Commission, the District of Columbia Rent Commission and as executives in the land offices under the Department of the Interior. It is no longer a mutter of surprise that women ure qualified for salaries of $5,000 or more, and no one questions their ability to earn a man's pr.y for doing a man's work. ' With the facts that mark the achievement of the administration in mind, women who have votes in the Democratic National Convention of 1!)20 will feel their peculiar respon sibility. To them has been given the tusk of helping to choose the can didate who, if elected, will curry on what has hren so splendidly achieved, and after the nomination It Is tne duty of every woman with a concep tion of the real meaning of Democ racy to do all in her power to assure the election of the man who is the choice of the convention of 1920. A WIDE-OPEN CONVENTION (Daily Oklahomun) The G. O. P. convention was un- bossed, unbridled and unled. It was t.ie most wide-open convention held by the republican party in a fenera tion. Mr. Will Hays admita it and all party press agents echo the popular shout. It was a wide-open convention. Senator Lodge, the old guard leader. the party spokesman in the long fight on the league of nations in the -senate, the man who led in ore-conven tion milling and fixing, the selection of the nationul committee for tem porary chairman, was made perma nent chairman by a vote of three fourths of the committee on organi zation on the first ballot. It was a wide-open convention. Senator Watson of Indiana, who framed the straddle plank on the league which passed the Indiana con vention, who demanded that the In diana state convention instruct for Wood after the close primary, who was the conservative choice for presi dent until it was decided that Hard ing wus a better bet, was made chair man of the committee on resolutions on the first ballot with only a half dozen votes against him. It. was. a wido-open convention. Murray Crane, John T. King, Reed Smoot and A. T. Hert only spent twenty hours a day in parlor E-l at the Congress hotel, from which point direct telephone and tcleirranh wires ran to the bedside of the sick boss, Penrose of Pennsylvania. It was . a wide-open convention The delegates did a lot of stalling in the Coliseum an hour or so daily and asked other what was trolnir on. while the chairman of the delegations the Iiamnns, the Burnsei, . ami the llitchcocks went out at night. It was a wide-open convention. Let the i ople rule ! Clovis invites the people of all the surrounding country to celebrate here at the big picnic to be held July 3rd. Kansas bankets are advocating stacking grain and threshing it at intervals to avoid loss from cur shortage that Is sure to prevail over the west. The Republicans have finished the nomination and there will be two weeks of quiet now until the Demo crats name their standard bearer and then the fireworks will start. We feel a little sorry for those feilows who put up all that good cam paign money and. then failed to put their candidates across nt the Chicago convention, It isn't a speculation any more as to how big a crop Curry County Is going to raise this fall, but the prob lem will likely be for the farmers to take cure of what they raise. While it took some time to find out who would be nominated at Chicago, it didn't take the committee long to determine who had paid for the nomination. We can say at least one good thing for the Republican nominee he is a newspaper man. Even a Re publican newspaper man ought to be a good scout. I The Bartlesvillc (Oklahoma) Ex aminer is 'in favor of the plan of having the government resume the coinage of two-cent pieces, if the government can suggest something besides a postage stamp that can be bought with it. Labor is peeved because the Re publicans gave them no consideration at the recent convention. The old line Republicans were in the saddle this time and that crowd does not cater to the working man.
