The opening of the congics with
the usual piesidential adminishments
only makes it moie definite and cer
tain that the people ran expect very
little in a legislate e way from Wash
ington. Perhaps it will be as well if the
Republican administration just sits
still and awaits the coining Demo-'
erotic administration- !
Those stickers at the packing
plants did not understand that Re-j
publican "normalcy" meant a con-,
tlnual sliding downward of wages-
The farmers who produced the beef i
found it out earlier in the season-
In a year all classes of society will '
have practical illustration of Re
publican "normalcy."
The Republican state chairman is
advising his followers to stand stiff
and "redeem" Oklahoma from Democracy-
The Democrats have several
millions in cash' in the strong box
and that may be what Mr. Alexan
der calls "redeem." When his party
left authority in Oklahoma it be
queathed the new state a debt of
$1,400,000 and a sorry credit. In
other words the Republicans conduct
ed government 18 years and got a
million and a half dollars in debt
In 14 years the Democrits got n sur
plus. Republican newspapers assert that
that the tax bill of the last session
reduced governmental expenses $600,
000,000 annually. But the taxpaying
capacity of the general public was
reduced far beyond that total-

When the fat mei- gives a bushel l
of corn for a cheap pair of cotton
socks he simply has to admit that
it wasn't this kind of a change he
thought he was voting for last fall.
There is one thing that is in favor
of the present national administra
tion, and that is that the eastern
capitalist can come west and buy a
farm from $10 to $25 per acre which
would have cost him $100 per acre
under Democratic good times.
