TO ABOLISH "C. O. D'S.'
New Bill in Congress Proposes to
Restrict Shipments of Intoxicat-
in Liquors Into Prohibition
States.—It Carries a Heavy
Penalty. w •
Washington, Feb. 9.—Another bill
aiming to restrict the shipments of
intoxicating liquors into prohibition
states was introduced today by Rep-
resentative Sheppard. The measure
would prohibit express companies or
other common carriers from handling
"collect 011 delivery" shipments con-
signed to any state or community in
which the use or sale of liquors is
forbiden by the laws of police regula-
tions. Any company found guilty of
violating the provisions of the bill
would be subject to a line of $500.
The bill also provides a penalty of a
fine from $50 to $500 or of imprison-
ment for from thirty days to six
months or both for any agent of an
express company or otlier common
carrier who makes such a delivery.
PAY UP DOCTOR
OR NO TREATMENT.
Waurika, Okla., Feb. 9.—The phy-
sicians of this city and county at a
meeting here Saturday passed resolu-
tions in which they will keep tab 011
each other's patients. Each doctor
will prepare a list of his patients in
arrears, which will be submitted to
the secretary who will then make
copies of them all- and distribute
among the members of the associa-
tion. The agreement agreed upon is
that any patient in arrears must make
satisfactory settlement of it before
he can get the services of another
The bill *that has already passed
the legislature and will likely be-
come. ti law provides for the sale
of1 the indemnity lands, public build-
ing lands, and the new 'college lands
granted by the enabling act. These
new college, lands, a.rg not included
in the above table. They consist of
two hundred and fifty thousand acres
to the University, one hundred and
fifty thousand acres to the Univer-
sity Preparatory school, two hundred
and fifty thousand acres to the A. &
M. college, one hundred thousand
acres to the colored A. & fl. college,
and three hundred thousand acres to
the normal schools. No provision is
made in the enabling act regarding
the sale of these new college lands
nor what may be done with the pro-
ceeds thereof. It will probably be
turned over to the schools for build-
ing purposes. Much of the land is
of an inferior quality and will not
be sold for some time, as there is
no one who would care to purchase
it at what the state could afford to
sell it for. This makes it necessary
for the University regents to ask the
mill tax they are working for so as
to go ahead with the needs of the
school immediately. Additional needs
will arise soon enough to take
care of the money derived from these
lands by the time they are sold.
The proceeds derived from the sale
of the public building lands will be
used to build public buildings, ar-
rangements for which the legislature
is now making.
The indemnity lands are very valu-
able, most of them being located
along river bottoms. The proceeds
from them can never be used except
to invest them in bonds and other
safe securities and the interest used
for the support of the common

WANTS $5,000 FOR
Bartlesville, Okla., Feb. 9.—Asking
damages in the sum of $5,000 for the
death of her husband, Mrs. Pauline
Neer, wife of John Neer, has filed
suit in the district court here against
Deputy Sheriffs Bob Duke and John
Vann, now under bond waiting the
action of the next grand jury. Neer
was shot and killed a few weeks ago
while riding along the street in a
wagon. It is claimed the officers
thought they were chasing-a bootleg-
ger and called to the driver to stop.
They were mistaken in the man. The
officers claim they shot only after 2
shots had been fired at them, while
bystanders say the officers shot first.
Here’s what’s next.
