It has been remarked since the gov-

have found out that he not only lias
backbone, but that it. "is constructed
of concrete and reinforced steel."
Stop Work on Rifle Range.
Oklahoma City, Okla. Following a
conference with the governor, the
state board of public affairs stopped
all work on the state rifle range at
Chandler and ordered contractors to
stop the delivery of materials for the

Sapulpa, Okla.—Fire, unchecked for
a time because of lack of water,
caused a loss of $.">0,000. Sapulpa vir-
tually has hcen waterless for months.
Many say it is lack of water that is
hurting the town. Water flows
through the hydrants only at inter-

McAlester, Okla.—Under a sentence
of fifteen years for grand larceny and

The Work They Expect to Accomplish
at the Extra Session
Washington, D. C.—In a party cau-
cus, noteworthy for its harmony and
the smoothness of its progress, the
Democratic members of the new
house of representatives udopted
without change the committee assign-
ments, the economy program and the
new rules prepared for the coming
session by the committees that have
been working in the last month.
A legislative program was adopted
which is expected to confine the ac-
tivities of the coming extra session of
congress to popular election of seua-
tors, Canadian reciprocity, tariff re-
vision, investigation of governmental
departments, congressional reappor-
tionment, statehood lor Arizona and
New Mexico general deficiency appro-
priations, District of Columbia legis-
lation and publicity of campaign con-
Important changes in procedure,
and a general reorganization of the
house will result from the action of
the Democrats. The power of naming
committees was definitely taken from
the speaker by the rules and lodged
in the house itself. Committee mem-
bers are to be elected by the house,
not only in the lirst instance, but also
in the filling of vacancies.
A saving ol $1S2,0U0 in the annual
cost of running the house is proni'
ised through the cutting out of super-
fluous employes and inactive commit-
tees; and through tho abolishinc-nt
of time honored "extra month's pay.
Appointive places are put into the
hands of one committee, a special
body to be known as the committee
on organization and the scramble for
congressional positions will center
about its door.
