Opinion Desired On Lana Patents.
Attorney General Charles West has
boon asked by the commissioners of
the school lan’ department for an
opinion as to wnether a patent can he
issued legally to sell in the Panhandle
country in the event the land should
prove to b** valuable for oil and gas.
The question has arisen since the re-
turn of the commissioners from an
extended trip through the Panhandle
country and further plan3 for placing
the land on sale are withheld pending
an opinion from the attorney general.
Several, it is said, are inclined to
the belief that a patent cannot be le-
gally issued since the state owns the
mineral resources of its public lands.
In the event the attorney general
holds that a patent in fee cannot be
granted, then the land will have to be
sold with the understanding that in
the event the land does prove valuable
for minerals the title shall not pass to
The attorney general also Is request-
ed to give his opinion on this and
other lands which previously have
been sold by the board.

Counties Slow In Reporting.
Only twenty-six of the seventy-seven
counties of the state have filed with
the state auditor the assessed valua-
tion of their counties as returned by
the county assessor, which under the
law should Jiave been filed not later
than the third Monday In June. The
board of equalization is now delayed
in its work of equalizing as a result
of the failure of many of the counties
to make their returns within the time
prescribed by law.

Refer Mining Bill,
With 1? 10 signatures .attached
thereto, the petitions for a vote upon
Section 18 of House Bill No. 228, rel-
i alive to mining were filed with the
secretary of state. Section 18 is the
only part of tho bill proper which met
with objection from the miners’ union
and labor unions over the state. The
section, when effective, would change
the method of blasting coal and to the i
disadvantage of the miners. If the pro-
posed amendment is carried at tho
election August 5. the entire section
will be stricken from the bill, and as
to the method of mining, no change
will be made under the now law from
the one now in force. The official
count by the secretary of state showed
a total of 19,800 signatures to the peti-
tions, or 7,382 more than required by
law. The petitions were filen by Pete
Stewart, president of the district min-
ers union at McAlester, and John Brit-
ton, member of the union, also from
Two Towns File R. R. Complaints.
The citizens of Miami filed with the
corporation commission a complaint
requesting the commission to issue an
order compelling the M., O. & G. rail-
road and the Frisco railroad to make
connections at Miami for the benefit
of the shippers of that city. Another
complaint was filed by the people of
Walter, asking for an order directing
the Rock Island to enlarge its cotton
platform at that place and to equip the
platform with electric lights.
Kate Turned Down
Tn its report to the state board of
education the special committee of
the board appointed to investigate
conditions at the Pauls Valley Train-
ing school for boys and the manage-
ment of the institution, declines to
recommend the removal of Superin-
tendent Nelson, requested by Miss
Kate Barnard, commissioner o' char-
ities and corrections, in her recent
report. To the contrary, the report
states that the committee does not
know of any one else who could ac-
complish more than is being done by
Superintendent Nelson under the
Less To Guaranty Fund Not Known.
The loss the state guaranty fund
will suffer as a result of the failure
of the Anadarko State bank has not
been determined yet, according to a
statement by State Bank Commis-
sioner J. D. Lankford. This, it is safd,
cannot be determined until after the
banking department has had an oppor-
tunity to realize on the assets of the
bank. The depositors lost more than
! $100,000 and the assets of the bank, it
is said, are valued at more than $200,-
000. In any event, it is stated, the loss
to the guaranty fund will be small.
Ben Riley Married.
Ben \Y. Riley, secretary of the state
election board, and Miss Roy Camp-
bell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. M.
Campbell, were married at Chickasba.
Washington.—Probably the most
radical and far-reaching extension of
the food and drugs act since its enact-
ment was made when Secretaries
Houston, McAdoo and Redfleld,
charged with enforcing this slatute,
ruled that meat and meat products
in interstate or foreign commerce
which hitherto have been exempted
from the provisions of the pure food
law, may be seized if misbranded nr
adulterated. Beginning at once manu-
facturers of meat foods will be re- |
quired to comply strictly with the food
and drugs act as well as with the meat
The action was taken on the
strength of an opinion by Attorney
General McRe-nolds. The three secre-
taries revoked a regulation adopted in
October, 1906, only tour months after |
the passage of the pure food law,
which had prevented the department
of agriculture, according to a state-
ment by Secretary Houston, "from
prosecution against manufacturers of
meet food under the pure food law, or
ordering seizures or prosecution for
misbranding or adulteration of do-
Secretary Houston said he could not
understand why meat and meat prod-
ucts were not food in the sense of the
food and drugs act, or why his de-
partment could not seize bad, adulter-
ated or misbranded meats once it had
entered interstate commerce.
Therefore he had sought the advice
of the attorney general.
SUFFRAGETS ARE UNSUBDUED
Another Big Batch, Including One
“He-One,” Sentenced In England
London.—Sentences ranging from
six months to a year and a half at
hard labor were imposed on five
women, officials of the Women's So-
cial and Political Union, convicted of
conspiring to commit malicious dam-
age to property. Edward Y. Clayton,
an analytical chemist, also was sen-
tenced to twenty-one months' Impris-
Miss Anna Kenny was sentenced to
eighteen months in prison; Mrs. Beat-
rice Saunders, fifteen months; Miss
Rachel Barrett, nine months, and Miss
Agnes Lake and Miss Laura Lenox,
six months each.
After passing sentence, Judge Phill-
more announced that he would urge
retrial should the prisoners be per-
mitted to leave prison. In reply the
women avowed they would hunger
strike and die in jail, if necessary.
Hot Springs, Ark.—In less than a
week after the Anadarko. Okla. lynch-
ing, sacrificing her young life rather
than submit to the bestial passions
of a black brute, little Garland HuIT,
the 14-year-old daughter of Judge and
Mrs. (’. Floyd Huff, was murdered,
her skill! being crushed in five places
as she battled off the advanees of
Will Norman, a 21-year-old negro
servant who had been In the employ
of the household for about two years.

WHO MADE THE OIL PRICEST
Interesting Facts Brought Out In the
Hearing at Dallas.
Balias, Tex.—The making of oil
prices was probed by the state In the
hearing her of its $99,000,000 oil pen-
The state sought to show that so
far as the Magnolia Oil company of
Texas, a defendant, is concerned,
these prices to the Texas trade de-
pended on what the Magnolia can get
from marketing its products outside
of Texas with Standard Oi! concerns.
A. C. Ebie, head of the Magnolia’s
sales department,, was on the stand
all day. The defense’s first oppor-
tunity came on Ills cross-examination,
when Ebie testified he had purchased
some barrels for the Magnolia from
the Standard Oi! company of New
Jersey because he considered thpm
the best in the market and some tank
wagons from the Standard Oil of In-
diana, because they were cheapest j
and most suitable. He said when he
organized the Magnolia’s selling de- j
partment two years ago he sought to
get Standard Oil products to market
in Texas, because he knew there was
a demand for them.

STATE RATES WIN AGAIN
Justice Hughes Holds Maximum Are
Reasonable, Not Confiscatory
and Hence Can Be Enforced
by the States.
Washington.—Validity of two-cent
passenger laws and maximum freight
rates in Arkansas. Missouri and West
Virginia were upheld by the supreme
court In another series of decisions
in the noted state rate cases. No de-
cision was announced in the Ken-
tucky case. In the Missouri case the
great majority rf rates contested by
the railroads as confiscatory were
held valid. State freight rates abol-
ished in Oregon also were approved.
All claims that state laws attacked
interfered with Interstate commerce
were swept aside, following the pre-
cedent set in the Minnesota rate de-
cision a week ago.
In the majority of the Missouri
cases and in the Arkansas case the
court held the railroads had presented
too general data on which to base a
claim that their property was being
taken without compensation through
the operation of the new rates.
In the Missouri rate case the su-
preme court held the rates coufisa
tory on the St. I-ouls and Hannibal,
Kansas City, Clinton and Springfield
and Chicago, Great Western railroads
The decision was based upon the
two-cent passenger law and the max
Imum freight law.
Justice Hughes, who announced the
decision, held that the point sought
to be made by the railroads to the
effect that the Missouri rates were a
interference with interstate com
merce must be decided against them
for the same reasons given by the
court in the Minnesota rate cases.
In each of these cases the decrees
of the lower court in favor of the
railroads were reversed.

Missouri as the lower court had held
the rateB confiscatory on all the roads
In the cases in which the rates
were held conflsatory the supreme
court modified the lower court's de-
cree so that the railroad commis-
sioners and the attorney general of

further action whenever it shall ap-
pear that by reason of a change in
circumstances the rates fixed by the

Jutsice Hughes said the question
of Interference with interstate com-
merce was decided in favor of the
state for the reasons assigned in the
Minnesota rate decision. No question
of confiscation was presented In the
West Virginia case.
The Arkansas maximum freight
rate law and the two-cent passenger
fare were also upheld as valid by the
The supreme court upheld as valid
rates imposed by the Oregon railroad
commission, thus affirming the fed-
eral court of that state.
Because of a provision tn the law
arbitrarily fixing $500 damages for
each violation, the court annulled as
unconstitutional the Kansas statute
of 1905 which fixed maximum rates
for transporting oil by rail. The ob-
jectionable clause was held to prevent
railroads from testing whether the
rates were confiscatory.
The supreme court adjourned un-
til next October without announcing
a decision in the Inter mountain rate
cases or passing upon the application
for a review of the Gompers-Mitchell-
Morriso'n contempt case.

to ordinary petit larceny, forgery and

to make his lectures from now on just
as libelous as possible, in order to give
Peary every opportunity to air the

Niagara Claims Two More.
Niagara Falls, N. Y.—Donald Rosce.
10 years and his brother 9 years old
of Buffalo, went to their deaths in a
small boat in the whirlpool rapids
while hundreds of men watched help-
less from the shore. The boys were
playing In a flat bottom scow half
a mile above the rapids when the
rope holding the boat broke and they
were carried out into the stream and
down the rtvor. Never at any time
was there a chance to save the boys.
The bodies are in the whirlpool and
probably never will be recoverd.
