Asked if he would support the
Shawuee platform, to which Gov-

he declared that there were many-
planks in the Shawnee program
which he favored.
Before stating my approval of
the bank plank, however," he said,
I want to be sure just what the
legislative plan is. I don't believe
the league leaders themselves have
determined their exact stand on
this plank, and the banking situa-
tion is the most vital subject upon
which new legislation Is pending.
"I have in tho past favored the

WASHINGTON, Nov. 20—The ad-
ministration will first demonstrate
its chastened spirit by dropping the
ship subsidy bill, following a per-
functory diaeusslon of the measure
in the special ke:.slon vailed today.
The ship subsidy bill is not a
party bill. It has never been a
party bill, and when tho white
house passes It along to a party
conference the administration will
be washing its hands of all respon-
sibility for its fate.
But there is still a powerful
financial lobby determined to ennct
the measure. And this lobby con-
tinues to crack its whip over the
frightened politicians, who see In
(he election results a warning to
stand away from the big steal.
Who remains behind the subsidy
drive and how they will proceed
are facts furnished by the People's
Tillman county, located in tho
extreme southwestern part of Okla-
homa in what has been heralded as
the "drouth-stricken area," will be
better able to spend a merry
Christmas and happy New Year
than nearly any other county in
Strange as it may appear, this
county has ginned nearly 30,000
bales of cotton, valued at around
$3,760,000, or a higher return than
any wheat growing or corn grow-
ing county in the state.
Tillman county ginned only 24,-
500 bales last year, while a normal
crop is 28,000 bales. Frederick, the
county scat, has already ginned
11,561 bales while It Is estimated
that another 1,000 bales will be
ginned before the season closes.
In August it was declared that
the crop would be cut almost half.
Forrest L. Hughes, county at-
torney and Joe I^ayton. county evi-
dence man. went to Edmond Mon-
day, to hold an inquest to ascer-
tain if possible how William Slick-
er. found dead on the railroad
tracks near that place, November
10, came to his death.
At tho time of finding the dead
body, it waa believed that he had
either fallen from a train or been
struck by one and killed, but later
developments indicate the man was
killed and his dead body placed up-
on the tracks to make It appear a
train had killed him, the county at-
torney said. He was in Edmond
Saturday morning, and found suf-
ficient evidence to warrant a court
inquiry Monday, he said.

BEST SYSTEMS OF
STUDIED AT A. and M.
STILLWATER, Nov. 20.—An ex-
periment has been running on the
farm of the Oklahoma agricultural
experiment station for five years to
find the best method of cultivation
of kaflr. The results of this experi-
ment have been tabulated and put
in mimeograph form for distribu-
. These results show that with no
cultivation the average yield was
about one-half as much as in other
cases. The cultivation of one to
five inches deep after rains gave
the largest average yield which
was 27.24 bushels. The Interesting
point is that the plot from which
the weeds were kept off by scrap-
ing with the hoe yielded 25 bushels
per acre which was about the av-
erage yield by the other methods
of cultivation and was greater than
in some of the other plots.
The amount of moisture in the
soil of the different plots was de-
termined. The results arc in har-
mony with the yields of grain. The
moisture of the plot receiving no
cultivation was from 3 to 6 per cent
lower than that of tfce other plots.
The surprising result was that the
plot from which the weeds were
scraped contained as much mois-
ture as the cultivated plots. This
experiment shows the importance
of keeping weeds down.
The most economical methods of
cultivation are shallow three times
and shallow after rains.

CROP FAILURE DISTURBS
Owing to the failure of the potato
crop, probably the principal food staple
of the lower classes, and the rapidly
increasing price of bread, official cir-
cles of Saxony fear very bad economic
conditions during the coming wii.
Vice Consul C. T. Steger, Dresden, has
Just Informed the department of com
merce of these conditions. He says
that reassuring statements with regard
to the potato crop have been issued by
the ministry of agriculture of Saxony,
but the anxiety of the populace is not
entirely allayed. Any further in-
creases In the cost of living would no
doubt lead to serious troubles and un-

In this statement we read that
the subsidy hunters are reaching
out for alliances with the water
power combine and the friends of
so-called inland waterways. Riders
will be offered to the ship subsidy
aiming at federal support of the
waterway projects and to tighten
the hold of private interests upon
the water power sites.
"The two chief interests backing
this plan," Bays the statement, "are
the Aluminum Company of Amer-
ica, which is one of the 'Mellon
group' of corporations, in which
the family of the secretary of the
treasury is deeply interested; and
the General Electric company,
which has the backing of the Mor-
gan financial group. The water
power interests involved are said
to be of almost incalculable value,

Only Three Months Left.
All of these predatory groups, wo
are reminded, have only a little
more than three months left in
which to wring special privileges
from a hangover congress already
repudiated by the voters. They
must work fast and not scruple to
use the club.
These last drives of the financial
fasclsti may enjoy the sympathy of
the administration, but there are
good signs that President Harding
will not act as whip for the plun-
derers. And If he should seriously
attempt coercive measures there
will be a revolt In the republican
ranks even before next March.
The cruel facts confronting Mr.
Harding are these. His patronage
bag is nearly empty and the glory
of his big majority in 1920 is gone.
For him and his party leaders there
left only one desperate chance
of surviving in 1924. They must
remove the public impression that
they are tools of the trusts. That

Press.)—Wets lost no time in con-
gress, reconvened today, in launch-
ing their fight for enactment of a
soldiers' bonus bill to be paid for

John Phillip Hill, Maryland, repub-
lican, proposing re-enactment of
the adjusted compensation measure
killed by presidential vote last sum-
mer. He suggested a 20 cent per
gallon levy on 2.75 per cent beer
and cider to raise the necessary
Representative Britten, Illinois,
republican,^announced he would in-
troduce a similar bill.
In an atmosphere surcharged
with political electricity, congress,
summoned Into an extraordinary
session by President Harding, met
at noon today.
The senate adjourned at 12:13 as
a mark of respect to the late Sen-
ator Watson. No action was taken
on seating Watson's successor. This
matter went over until tomorrow
because the senate had never pre-
viously been officially notified of
Senator Watson's death.

democrats as members, with only
12 republicans. In the house, the
