WAITS OVER FALL
.Mrs. Ida Boyer, secretary of the
Woman's Suffrage association, has re-
turne from Outhrie, where she went
the first, of the week to confer wit -
the suffragists there and inaugurate
a campaign in the capital city Mrs.
Boyer says suffragists are paying no
attention to the statement of Senator
H. M. Roddie that there would be no
special election to vote on woman suf-
frage this year.
"Maybe Senator Roddie knows what
he is talking about and perhaps he
does not," said Mrs. Boyer. "Of
course, he may be speaking author!-
lively for Governor Haskell, although
lie does not make that claim. We will
go on with our campaign regardless
of what a state senator says.
"We have completed our work at
Guthrie and go next to Shawnee to
organize the suffrage movement. Tn
turn all the larger cities of the state
will be visited and these will look after
the smaller places.
"We are going to conduct our cam-
paign for female suffrage this year on
political lines. At present few women
know the ropes in politics and they
must be taught the game in order that
our movement may become success-
ful. A thorough organization of the
entire state from precincts up to
congressional districts is our aim."
The women evidently intend to form
j a regular political machine and beat

house and the signature of the gov

what compensation they shall receive,
what their tenure of office shall be

OLD TIME SLEEPERS
PASS THROUGH CITY
Oklahoma City railroad men were
j treated to a reminisence of old times
j when three so-called tourist sleepers
I passed through here carrying a west-
I Texas colonist excursion over the
: Santa Fe and Tex .s & Pacific. The
alleged Pullman sleepers were really
old Wagner sleeping cars, worn out
from years of hard service.
Years ago Wagner made sleeping
cars iu Buffalo. His cars were con-
sidered the finest type of rolling stock
a score of years back. Wagner sleep-
j ing cars were used by the New York
Central, Michigan Central and other
i big eastern lines. The cars were
! smaller than the present standard
! Pullman sleepers. But they were
.thought to be wonderful in their day.
They were known as palace cars and
! their gaudy upholstery, highly col-
; ored woorwork and beveled glass win-
l <ioys were in the nineties held to be
the acme of the car makers' art.
Since the Pullman palace ear cotn-
! pany absorbed the Buffalo concern.
Wagner cars are known no more. The
Pullman company painted its name on
the cars and discarded them as soon
as they were worn out. A few. are
i left in the Kansas City railroad ards
j hut never go out on the road except.
! on a rare occasion. Colonist travel
I is heavy just now so the transporta-
' tion companies had to put the old
time sleepers in service once more
