A Statement to Voters.
tlEAVF.lt COUNTY OVKH THR TOP
" Th campaign cloies Tuesday and you, Mr. Voter, have
Mm last aay.
Candidate Robertson has issued a statement, personally
mmJ, in which he says, '.'Stand by the President by giving
him a democratic state government." It will occur to you that
Dm Preaifcnt has troubles enough of his own without loading
Utaua with the political machine in this state. But that
tsjstnwrt was made for just one purpose: To keep your mind
A something besides state affairs and the manner in which
flfc sftaabine wing f the democratic party has mismanaged
Hmm 4wmJ the past eleven years. In other words it is an
immI U yeu Mindly vote an endorsement of the $27,000,
Ipt.M ike present state administration has cost you; an
uMtmt Slf.7M.410.33 MORE than the four years of Cruce
Ml $14,151,145.89 MORE than the Haskell administration,
mmi beyend the comprehension of the average mind. Yet
y had an idea, well founded, that both the Cruce and Haskell
tdmiiiistratiens were too extravagant. And they were.
"; The same politicians who have controlled the state's af
fairs macc statehood, and who have grown more and more
rtefrUea, are asking You to let them stay at the public treasury.
They have Made No Promises of State Reform.
They tcH vm in their Inform that the $27,000,000.00 admin.
itwaalM el Governor Williams was, "Able, Just, Economical and
riBslsnf diilrrlTTTT-r iS-)f T" '" beleive it. At the same time
they have printed in their official campaign book a statement, "that
$34411,121.74 covers all appropriations in the Eleven Years since
sttlshiii" The troth is, and the Session Laws show, that $53,767,
tn.24(olaS244.Mt.t0) is the correct sum. Difference, $15,605,
2L4t. That statement was made with the deliberate attempt to dc
The ropoUican ticket is headed by Horace G. NcKeever, of Enid

' soomMos, not one of whomever before sought state office, and who
wM make excellent officials. They are Pledged to Reform in State
Exponent exes. Unless they accomplish these reforms, they cannot
hope and their party need not expect, to remain, in office. In that
point yen are interested.
Again, yon are interested, if you are a democrat and not a mem
bor of she machine wing of it, in cleaning your own political house in
order to net a new deal next time. This can be done in only one
way (ai wae dearly demonstrated in the last primary) and that is to

8TEFFEN FOR HEPHE8ENTATIVK
J. W. Stefren, of LaKemp, Repub
lican nominee for Representative of
Beaver and Harper counties, is a
home man whom the voters of Beav
er county, regardless of political af Il
lation, would do well to support tor
the office ho seeks. No man In the
county perhaps. Is more extensively
known than J. w. Steffcn, particular
ly In the central section of the coun
ty for he is a live wire, a man who has
been Identified with the building up
of the county and one who has served
hundreds of farmers In the county ai
auctioneer, for he Is a "silver
tongued" auctioneer and ono who gets
tho high dollars always and no mis
take. In making the race for Repre
sentative, -he did so at the solicita
tion of many friends who knew that
he would make a strong pull for elec
tion and that, it elected, would be
fair and square and represent all the
people, all the time. He feels and
others feel, that he is capable and
qualified to take care of the best in
terests of Harper, and Beaver coun
ties and that If he Is elected to rep
resent thorn, they will have no
cause for regret.
A vote cast for J. W. Steffen, No
vember 5th, for Representative, will
be well cast. Beaver county should
give him a handsome majority and
will, we believe, vote for him regard
less of party lines. Democrats, as
well as Republicans, will support him
because thoy know that ho will look
after tho interests of Ueavcr county
and that when It comes to our needs
he will be on the Job to see that we
get. a square deal with tho other
counties of the state.
We Need a Change!
The Fifth and Sixth Legislatures come under the Williams
"cruel economy" administration. Candidate Robertson has en
dorsed this reckless waste of millions in these words: "Tho pres
ent state administration has mado a splendid record for honesty,
ability, justice, efficiency, of which all democrats should be proud."
Robertson endorses an expenditure of $27,000,000.00 by the Will
iams administration, the most profligate of them all. Before his
election four years ago, Williams promised the people a reduction
of state expenses, the Cruce administration being unnecessarily
extravagint. Yet he increases it $lfy000,000.00! Robertsoa EN
DORSES Williams. Williams and his machine nominated Robert
son and if the people elect Robertson governor he will be compell
ed to go the absolute limit and he will do It. Tho machine ex
pects to make a REAL cleaning while the state still has credit.
The last two years of the Williams administration cost two
and ono half times the cost of that of Kansas; twice that ol Miss
ouri, three times that of Nebraska! In addition to this It paid a
deficit of $214,000.00 for the first two years of the administration.
And Last Year the Payroll has been Increased $202,000.00
A Change is Needed for Your Own Protection from the Most
Ruthless Political Machine in the United States.
