cording to the daily Midget,
Kingfisher would be a good
place to stare.—Oklahoman. We
wonder whether by that is
meant that all the grown peo-

LOBBY LAW BEING VIOLATED
Measure Will be Forgotten by An-
other Session, Tis Said.
Guthrie, Okla., Feb. 5—A general
discusion of lobbying and the alleg-
ed violations of the anti-lobby law
was indulged in by the senate at the
morning session, but without any ac-
tion being taken.
The matter was brought on by the
application of William B. Hale of
Weatherford, who stated that he was
receiving $5 per day and expenses, to
register as the legislative agent for
the Oklahoma State Optical Society.
His opplication was granted without
opposition, but its receipt brought
on a general discussion of the lobby
The ball was started by Senator
Billups, who declared that the law
was being violated freely and fla-
grantly, and inquired as to whether
the right granted to an accredited
agent to appear before committees
also entitled him to work among the
members on the floor of the senate.
He was supported by Hatchett, who
asserted that he had "been button-
holed here in the senate chamber,
where lobbyists have no business,
and asked to support special bills."
