the frau on it. to he removed. With

Guthrie.- The action <>f the Oklaho-
ma supreme court in issuing a per-
emptory writ of mandamus directing
Secretary of State Hill Cross to file
the petitions Initiating a local amend- J
rnent to 'he constitution of the state,
.vhich were'recently presented to him,!
means that Oklahoma must undergo
a repetition of the fUvht which was
waged for and against piohibition in
connection with the adoption of the j
constitution of the state
No sooner will the hitter fight in
connection with the location of the
state capital, which is now on. be sot-
tied. than the state v. ill be plunged
into an even more hitter contest over.j
the prohibijion question.
The situation in Oklahoma on the
question of prohibition is consider-
ably different from that in Kansas,
where the same fight has been going
on for twenty-five years. The great
effort of anti-prohibitionists in Kan-
sas lias always been to secure a re-
i submission of the liquor question to
the people, and they have tried again
' and again to elect a legislature, a ma-
i jot ity of the members of which would
' stand pat on a resubmission platform,
but have never succeeded. The pro-
hibition advocates have always pre-
vented the matter from being put to
the direct test of r. popular vote.
The proposed ar endment which is
now subject to vote amends section
! 7,. article I of the constitution, by pro-1
viding that upon th petition of L'." per
I cent of the qualified electors of any in-
corporated city, town or village the
governor shall call a special election
to Note on whether or not the sale of
liquor shall be licensed. Two differ-1
' cut plans are proposed, one allowing
I the licensing of the sale of liquor to
. be drunk on the p-en ises at an an-
' nual license fee of $*J • in> and the other j
j licensing the sale in original packages
not to be drunk on the premises, at
an annual fee of $."00. Cities may
vote on either plan.
All devices that vou'd obstruct a
view of patrons from the street are
made illegal except as to hotels, res-
taurants. parks or gardens, and no
chairs, tables, music, billiards or pool
tal lcs are permitted in a place where
liquor is sc.Id. Wine rooms and gamb-
ling are prohibited in saloons and
they can not be connected by a door
with such resorts.
Drinks cannot be sold to habitual
drunkards 01 minors and treating is
made unlawful unless the drinks are
purchased by a parent or \ nardiaii for
members of his family or his ward.

Cf Railroad Values.
Guthrie.- -The state board of equali-
zation assessed all railroad property
in the state making a ten per cent In-
erase in the assessed valuation of all
main track property over the assess-
ment of last year and assessing side-
tracks. buildings and station property
t at the same figures as last year. This
1 makes an inerase in the assessment
I of main tracks of $17,100,346 over last
1 year and brings the total assessed
valuation of railroad property tn the
state up to a little over $200,000,000.
The valuation of sidetracks, station
I property and other buildings is $11,-
U).NI,469, the same as last year.
The big problem in connection with
such an'amendment is whet c
could legallv be made etfec tiv« on the
c.i.-t side of the s"tt<- f« rim rlv ln.ii la
territorx. where the sale of liquor for
twenty-one >ears was prohibited b>

Then Go After National Champion-
ship— Law Consolidation Is Defi-
cient, Says Authorities—
Spanking Is Upheld.
Guthrie.—State Superintendent ot
Education E. D. Cameron has address- j
ed *a letter to all county superintend- j
ents of schools in Oklahoma to enlist i
them in a movement to create new >
interests in spelling and bring about I
greater proficiency. The state super- j
intendent of North Dakota and other
teachers are responsible for the move- i
ment, which has been endorsed by all
states communicated with.
It is suggested that each countv su- j
perlntende.nt, by means of a series (if
contests or otherwise, select the best \
speller to represent his or her county i
in a championship contest for state |
honors, to he held in ihe capital. I.a-
ter the successful contestants are to
appear at a meciinir of the National
Kducational association to determine
who Is entitled to Hie championship
speller of the United States.
Superintendent Cameron and his as-
I sistant, J. W. Wilkerson, are prepar-
ing a pamphlet in which the advant-
ages of consolidated schools in all sec-
tions of the state is urged.
There is now about forty consoli-
i dated school districts in Oklahoma.
1 The counties where the idea has
j proven popular are Carter, Comanche,
j Delaware, Grant, Johnson, Kiowa,
l.ove, McClain, Payne, Pawnee, Sem-
1 inole, Texas, Washita, Rogers and Ro-
| ger Mills.
j The slogan of the present state su-
^ perintendent is a rural high school
within the reach of every county pu-
pil in the state.
Three Cases Appealed.
Three cases were appealed to the
state supreme court. Henry Bour-
land brought up a case in which the
Madill State bank secured a judg-
ment for $r.O0 on a chattel mortgage
in the county court of Marshall coun-
ty. John T. Reynolds and John II.
Bhellenberger filed appeals from 'lie
district court of Tulsa county, in cases
in which William M. Kewel secured
favorable decision on his petition to
quiet title to certain property.
