Thursday, September 24 1908 -- Governor Haskell of Oklahoma has been accused by William Randolph Hearst of aiding Standard Oil in it's monopolistic price fixing and anti-competition schemes. Though Herriman here indicates that Haskell is in big trouble, the whole affair seems to have blown over rather quickly, as the incident doesn't seem to have stuck to his reputation. Perhaps that's because Haskell has such an assortment of dislikeable qualities that this one doesn't stand out.
