No. 220. Eight pages i under Laws of Oklahoma one can not Register and vote in primary As a member of one party and change his political Faith in the general election Oklahoma City june 23.�?the demo \ cratic a state committee of Oklahoma in the interests of pure poll la and honesty in voting has appealed to the state election Board which in turn appealed to the attorney general of Tho state relative to the enforcement of the existing election Laws. The attorney general a office hands Down the opinion to the effect that no one can Register As of one party and after having voted As a member of that party in the primary re Register As a member of another party and cast his vote As member of that second party. If a Man registers As a Democrat and votes As a. Democrat in the primary he cannot change his registration declaring himself either a re pub Lipan or a socialist until 90 Days next before the following primary election. The opinion from the attorney a general a office follows have received a great Many inquiries from Over the state As to whether or not a voter had a right to change his Quot registration certificate so that he Wili be Able to vote or affiliate with another political party other than it which he has been voting and registering. A a we have taken this matter up with the state election Board who has obtained an opinion from the attorney general of the state of Oklahoma which we quote As follows. A Section 8, of the general registration Law provides a a a that no change in registration shall be granted on the ground of change of politics unless application therefor be made at least 90 Days before the next succeeding general primary a Quot the provision of Section 8, Supra to the effect that no change of registration shall be granted on the ground of change of politics unless applied for at least 90 Days before the next elation is mandatory and has exception. A a Section 13 of said act is As follows a a a a no elector shall at any primary election held in this state vote the ballot of any political party of which lie is not n member or with which he does not affiliate and at any such primary election any elector May be challenged on that ground and whens challenged no such elector shall be permitted to vote at any such primary election unless and until he shall first subscribe and swear to an oath that he is a member of. And does affiliate with the political party in whose primary election he seeks to vote. All such affidavits shall be returned by the precinct election officers to the county election Board along with the election returns. A a a manifestly no provision is therein made for the purpose of enabling anyone to vote otherwise than As a member and an affiliate of Tho party in which registered. Such proposed voter cannot by making the affidavit therein mentioned vote otherwise than registered. The Challenge contemplated in sold Section goes t0 the question of Tho voter having fraudulently registered As member of one party when in fact such voter is openly and notoriously a member and affiliate of another party the Challenge goes to the Good Faith of Tho registration and when such Good Faith is questioned on the ground that the Holder of the certificate is not a member of or does not affiliate with the political party with which identified by the registration certificate then the proposed voter is required to make the oath mentioned before he receives a ballot in accordance with his registration. In other words without the affidavit so exacted such voter cannot Votry in the party in which registered should the voter fall or refuse to make that affidavit after challenged he would not be entitled to vote in the party of his registration nor could he vote in any other party. Said affidavit is therefore made to enable an elector to vote As registered and not in any manner to change his registration certificate his politics nor his the above is signed by r. E. Wood assistant attorney general of the state of Oklahoma on behalf of Tho attorney general.

Judge Gerard a candidacy has South Dakota a support and he has Many personal friends among the other delegates or. Bryan says. San Francisco june 23.�?rumblings of democratic discord Over the prohibition Issue became hourly More ominous today As delegates and party chiefs arrived in increasing numbers for the National convention. Hope that the gathering storm might speak itself behind the closed doors of iffy platform committee virtually was abandoned by the leaders and they prepared a to face an outbreak of tempestuous debate on the floor of the convention itself. Such a development it was agreed everywhere would hold Many dramatic possibilities including a further complication of the Uncertain Outlook As to the presidential nomination. Already the overshadowing Issue in pro convention conferences the question of a platform declaration against the present Quot Bone dry Law almost took the whole stage for itself today As the gathering delegates heard of postmaster general Burleson a an., nou Cement for a modification of the volstead net. I a Many accustomed to regard the postmaster general As a spokesman for the White House the development was accepted As a warning of which was the wind of administration influence would blow. Others among the party leaders refused to take that View but none Here assumed to know with certainty How far the schemes of president Wilson might be in Accord with those of or. Burleson.

Outlines possible platform Lincoln neb., june 23.�?prediction that the democratic National convention at san Francisco will witness fights Over the peace treaty the profiteer and the liquor Issue is made in an article by William j. Bryan in his newspaper the commoner. A the chances Are in favor of ratification of the treaty without reservations and against the profiteer Ana the Saloon a or. Bryan declared. A the overwhelming opposition to Tho policy of ratification without reservations is shown by the vote at Tho primaries Quot he asserted a will probably defeat any Effort to make Tho treaty an Issue in a the Campaign the article also says the democratic platform is certain to declare against Universal compulsory military training that the convention will have to Deal with the subject of private monopoly a hat Tho democratic party will insist upon the toilers right to equal representation and that from an suffrage will to endorsed. Mention flour for a settlement regard less of what decision was Oriade in the platform committee. Closely intertwined with the prohibition question is the problem of selecting a nominee in Accord with the platform As finally agreed on and among Many of the practical politicians there is a feeling that the two decisions must be settled virtually atone stroke. So the pleas of manager Aro falling on deaf. Ears for the present while the Leader get their bearings on the More imme. Diate question of a Bone dry or Abeer platform. The league of nations disagreement along with several other disputed platform issues has followed the question of candidates into temporary eclipse. Among most of the leaders it is agreed that whatever trouble developed Over the treaty will be Only ?. Drop in the bucket compared to the prohibition fight. Leaders of the Bone dry forces were confident today that they would command a Good majority in the platform committee where each state has Only one member and could keep out of the committee report any declaration for a change in the present liquor tie ii. With this View most of the of. Posing managers. Privately agreed but they declared that when an Appeal was taken to the convention itself the vote would Tell a much different Story. The Large states it was pointed out while having Only one apiece in the committee will have a much greater voice in. The whole body of delegates who make up the final court of appeals. And most of the largest delegations Aro. Counted on for support by the advocates of a Beer Plank. A complicating feature of a convention floor fight would be the unit Rule under which Many state delegations Are instructed to vote As a body. It was suggested today however that there might be a general agreement to let each Delegate be counted according to his own convictions when the prohibition Issue came to it final showdown. On that basis both sides were predicting Victory and Many of those in a position to know were declaring the outcome worm be close. Some of the oldest leaders declared in fact that the divisions might be close enough to make argument and oratory on Tho convention floor the deciding Factor. In any Case such an open fight would be Likely it is predicted to furnish Many thrill ing urns. A William Jennings Bryan would be expected to head the Bone Drys and to probably would find pitted against him strategists and orators of the first rank. W.
