MUSKOGEE, May 18.—"I not only
am not trying to destroy the Mine
Workers' organization but am trying
to keep any one else from destroy-
ing it," said President Frank Far-
rington, of the Illinois district, who
arrived here Wednesday and ad-
dressed the miners convention at the
"1 came here to defend the Kansas
miners whom I believe to be the vic-
tims of the most treacherous betrayal
in the history of not only the Mine
Workers but the entire American la-
bor movement," he said.
Before presenting Farrington to
the convention President Wilkinson
stated that the charge made at a
previous session that Farrington and
the Oklahoma Leader were in a con-
spiracy to over-throw the interna-
tional organization and that he would
so prove from the records.
"I have every respect for Farring-
ton's integrity as a man, for his re-
spect for contracts and his ability.
We only differ as to policy," he said.
Farrington, replying to these re-
marks, said "I do not understand
your position. In one breath you
accuse me of trying to destroy the
organization and in the next breath
you say you have respect for me.
Permit me to say. President Wilkin-
son. that I have no respect for any
man who Is trying to destroy the
Mine Workers' organization. If I
am guilty of that I deserve, not the
respect, but the contempt of every
union man. Now, you'll have
chance to prove that charge if I have
to stay here all summer. Because I
expect to stay until this convention
is over or until you say there is no
more to be said on the subject. There
will be no one coming along after
me and saying I said such and such
a thing after I'm gone as was the
case in the Missouri convention.''

Attorney Claims School Pat-
rons Are Insulted By 'Best j
and Worst' Sallies.
The bitter fight between the South-
west Bell Telephone company and
the druggists and other merchants
of Oklahoma City over the pay tel-
ephone stations opened for the sec-
ond round Thursday morning before
the corporation commission.
The commission room at the Cap-
itol, while not evidencing such a
large crowd as was present Wednes-
day when the first session opened,
was nevertheless well filled.
At noon the commission's secre-
tary declared that it would probably
require most of the day to get in all
of the evidence in the case.
Heated sallies between attornys for
the company and attorneys repre-
senting tho patrons marked Wednes-
day and Thursday morning sessions.
R. J. Benzall. state manager of the
telephone company declared that the j
opposition to the pay stations was
due to the fact that all of the mer-
chants had not as yet established the
pay stations, which resulted in dis-
crimination against those who had.
Attorneys for the subscribers vigor-
ously denied this, contending that it
had hurt their business to deny pat-
rons the use of phones.
Best and Worst.
When S. H. Harris, attorney for
the company, followed the statement
of druggists that "some of the sons
and daughters of the best people in
town used their phones," by asking
if some of the "worst ones as well"
used the phones, it brought a bitter
attack upon HarriB by S. A. Rourke,
who declared Harris had insulted
every patron of the Oklahoma City
Benzall declared that the average
cost of each phone call was about
1.9 cents, when attorneys for the pat-
rons declared thdt 5 cents was too
much for a few words conversation.

Preliminary Court Hearing Set
Phelan Continues War on the
County Bond Issue.
Amended petition charging that the
issue of county hospital bonds was
illegal, was filed in district court
Thursday by J. R. Phelan. The
county commissioners, Ed Butter-
field, B. W. Black, and George Brown.
Martie S. Ryan, county treasurer.
Tom Bodine, county clerk, and
George F. Short, attorney general and
George D. Key. bond buyer, were
named as defendants.
This marked the latest develop-
ment In the war which has waged
over the hospital bonds since they
were first voted.
The amended petition, like the
original, asks that the court declare
the bonds to be illegally issued, and
that the defendants be restrained
from taking further action.
The necessary plurality of three-
fifths of the voters did not declare
in favor of the bonds at the election,
it was said. Of the 9,018 unmutil-1
ated ballots, the petition alleges,
5,330 voted for the bonds, and 3,698
voted against them. If this was the
correct number of unmutilated bal-
lots cast, there must have been at
least 5,409 votes for the issue of the

This was the declaration of Mau-
rice Jayne, architect of this city,
Thursday, following his demand that
contractors constructing the Sol-
diers' Memorial hospital at Muskogee
stop all work on the building until
the soldiers' relief committee in
harge of the building meet and
check up the work of the contractors.
The contractors are not building
the building according to specifica-

While I found that they were not

committee, they were not following
the one upon which they agreed to

suing a policy of constructing the
building on lines between the two

cheaper materials and other things
that would lessen the cost of the

soldiers' relief committee composed
of H. B. Fell of Ardmore, Horace
Hagan of Tulsa, and Grant Victor of
Alton, and that they would meet
within the next few days to go into
the "whole matter."

drawn up by the architect but that

Jayne declared that a building
built upon these plans would cost
thousands of dollars less than those
