Man Rescues Children; May Die.
Tulsa, Okla I T. BrocK was injur

burned seriously in a fire that de-
stroyed the Brock home near Tulsa.
Hrock was the first to discover the

dren, who were asleep.
Oklahoma City, Okla.—A clash oc-
curred the other day between Gover-
nor Cruce and the Oklahoma supreme
court, when the governor sent a tele-
gram to Adjutant General Frank Can-
ton, ordering him to carry out his
proclamation, declaring the original
townsite of .lay to be the county seat
of Delaware county, in the face of a
temporary injunction issued by the
court restraining the adjutant general
from interfering with the county com-
missioners in any way and instructing
him. in the event that any of the rec-
ords were removed to the original
townsite, to return them at once.
The order of the court was tele-
graphed to General Canton by the su-
preme court clerk, but was not deliv-
ered until the mission ordered by the
governor had been completed.
When informed as to the court's ac-
tion, Governor Cruce said that he had
ordered Canton to see that the county
records were deposited upon the orig-
inal ten acres and that he would im-
mediately informed him that the order
is to be obeyed.
He sent the following telegram to
"Have just learned that supreme
court has issued restraining order di-
recting you not to enforce the procla-
mation and order that I delivered to
you. As commander-in-chief of the
Oklahoma militia and as governor of
the state, I direct you to proceed with
the enforcement and order as deliver-
ed to you. Whatever force is neces-
sary for you to employ to enforce this
".s'08** 1 OI"der you will call into requitition.
I The attempt to restrain your action
$ o .:«ji | through the supreme court of this
!. ! state has been done without any notice
either to you or to me, and is in line
with the whole policy that has been
pursued by those who have been dou-
ble dealing with the governor in the
matter of the removal of these records.
There should be no friction over this
matter, but if it must come 1 will see
that the will of the voters of Delaware
county is not sacrificed to the selfish,
greedy interests of a few* real estate
speculators who seem determined to
use the courts and everyone else in
an effort to thwart the expressed will
of the people."
Hardly had the telegram left the
governor's office than Canton called
the governor from Grove. He ex-
plained that he had deposited the
county records as ordered, and had
the commissioner's receipt for them
He added that he had an order from
the supreme court to leave the records
alone, or if they had been moved to
take them back. He asked the gov
ernor for instructions.
"Let them stay where you left them
Don't carry them back," was the gov-

"That's My Affair"—Cruce.
Oklahoma City, Okla Governor
Cruce has set no date for deciding the
board of education investigation which
was closed some weeks ago. The mail
brings many letters regarding the In-
quiry. and some do not hesitate to
tell the governor what he should do

was to the effect that he would decide
the controversy in his own way and at
his own time.

Twenty-four Carloads Purchased for
Lewis' Single Binder Cigar
What is probably the biggest lot of
all fancy grade tobacco held by any
factory in the United States has just
been purchased by Frank P. Lewis, of
Peoria, for the manufacture of Lewis'
Single Hinder Cigars. The lot will
make twenty-four carloads, and Is se-
lected from what is considered by ex-
perts to be the finest crop raised In
many years. The purchase of tobacco
is sufficient to last the factory more
than two years. An extra price was
paid for the selection. Smokers of
Lewis' Single Hinder Cigars w ill appre-
ciate this tobacco.
