AL. J. JENNINGS, FORMER TRAIN ROBBER,
IS A CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR
Ifc - y I r' TfaMwSEP^y
A 1 J. Jennings, former train robber, now practicing attorney in Okla
homa, is determined the public shall indorse his reformation, and to prove
that they will do so lie is now a candidate for the nomination for Governor.
He believes if he is elected he will give Oklahoma the best, at least the
most honest, administration it lias known. If he fails of nomination or elec
tion he will have achieved sufficient prominence to make his law practice
even more profitable than now.
The difference between Jennings and some others in politics is that he
admits he was a highwayman and a thief, and tliey don't till indicted. Jen
nings is making a perfectly plain appeal to the people of his State. He was
a bandit, he served time in a prison, but lie reformed. Now lie is going out to
hunt crooks and gangs and rings in politics.
Already he has had the experience ot running for county attorney in his
home. He came within 500 votes of election. Considering the fact that the
firofessional politicians of both parties worked against him, lie says, he be
ieves he was really elected. He gives the professionals, whom he had attack
ed bitterly, credit for ability sufficient to rake up 800 illegal ballots.
New Studebaker Landau
and Its Desirable Points
By combining in one car nil the ad
vantages of the popular roadster and
coupe types, the Studebaker this year
have placed on the market on a stand
ard four chassis, a two-passenger
body type unique in scope and price.
The style is known as the Landau-
Koadster. The body is a copy from a
cabriolet design by one of the most
famous body builders of Europe.
As a roadster the car presents a
distinguished appearance, differing
but little from the conventional type.
When desired, however, it is only a
few minutes' work to change it into a
car closed tightly and cozlly—impene
trable to wind, cold and rain. The top
is of special design and fits snugly to
the wind shield. The windows slide
into the hollow doors when not in use.
But one curtain is necessary on either
side. The windows swing with the
doors, making entrance and egress
as easy as in a coupe.
In his desire to meet all weather
conditions, many a motorist has found
it necessary to maintain two cars—a
roadster, open to the sunshine and
the summer breeze, and a coupe in
which to defy the chilling blasts of
winter. The Landau-Roadster com
bines the advantages of both in one
car and at a saving in first cost which
will appeal strongly to any buyer.
This Landau-Roadster appeals es
pecially to physicians, and Robert L.
Morton .has been demonstrating for
a week with the model received at the
Keystone Motor Car Company, which
is the first one of this type to reach
the city. This car sells at $1,200,
f. o. b. Detroit.
Metz Little Roadster
Has Many Admirers
The Metz Roadster, winner of last
season's Glidden Tour, covering a dis
tance of 1,300 miles In competition with
cars costing from five to ten times as
much, is built only in the roadster
type. This little car attracted unusual
attention at the New York Show with
an exhibit that was elaborate. This
car Is said to travel twenty-eight to
thirty-two miles on one gallon or gaso
line, 100 miles on one pint of lubricating
oil and from 10,000 to 12,000 miles on a
single set of tires. The car has what is
known as "gearless transmission."
The makers thus claim that it entirely
eliminates gear trouble, and has no
clutch to slip and no gears to strip.
The Metz "22" sells for $-175 and S6OO
complete with electric equipment. Some
of these features include electric
starter, electric searchlights, electric
side lights, electric dash lights, electric
tall lights, electric horn; four-cylindei
22%-horse-power water-cooled motor,
Bosch magneta. artillery wheels, best
quality Goodrich clincher tires, etc. All
equipment throughout, as fully listed,
Without electric starter, electric
lights and electric horn, but equipped
with gas searchlights and gas genera
tor, oil dash lights and tail lights, and
bulb horn, price is $475, all other equip
ment being identically the same.
