GEORGE I. KM ON THE TWO-GENT EM QUESTION
HIGH SCHOOL TO JOINS NATIONAL
HOLD COMMENCEMENT DEEP WATERWAY
THURSDAY NEXT ASSOCIATION
George A. Henshaw la In Tulaa today
repreacnting the complaints In the caaea
Hied before the corporation commlaelon
In reference to subway crossing under
the Katy and Frisco railroads; alao the
eaae against the Pioneer Telephone
company for Inadequate service and the
Increase in telephone rates. Mr. Hen-
thaw has prosecuted over three hun-
dred caaea before the corporation com-
mission, Involving all phases of rate
regulation; also represented tho state
In the federal court In tho two-cent fare
and rate cases. On being asked by a
Democrat reporter what he thought of
tho two-cent faro and the rate cases, he
"We argued tho caaea before the
United States circuit court of api>euls
at St, Paul last week and have hopes
that we will secure at least a fair con-
sideration of the law and the evidence,
and If we do there Is not a shallow of a
doubt but what the state will win and
the two-cent fare will bo restored and
the commission's rates enforced. The
undisputed evidence shows that tho
railroads In Oklahoma Increased their
earnings on passenger fares for 1909
at two cents a mile twenty-five percent
over 1907 when they were charging
three cents. They make 1800.00 per mile
of road morn in Oklahoma at two cents
than they do In Texas at three cents.
The Katy Increased Its earnings upon
the commodities upon which the com-
mission had made rates ninety per
cent. The Santa Fe Increased Its earn.
Ings 172 per cent. Notwithstanding
these facts Judge Hook grated a tem-
porary Injunction. One position taken
by Judgn Hook Is hard to reconcile with
the position of the railroads and the
facts In the case. The railroads were
assessed by the state between $30,000.00
and $35,000.00 per mile We agreed to
stand upon this valuation. WhUc at St.
Louis It developed that we had the rail-
roads beaten upon their own proposi-
tion. They thon Insisted that the courts
should take the amount of their stocks
and bonds ns a valuation of the roads,
notwithstanding there was no evidence
In the record as to what the stocks and
bonds were worth. They enjoin the
collection of taxes because the railroads
In Oklahoma were assessed relatively
too high. The temporary Injunction
was sustained by the federal court.
Judge Hook found the value of the roads.
In order to Issue an Injunction, from
$50,000.00 to $64,000.00 a mile. He put
a valuation on roada higher than the
bond Issue of stocks and bonds. The
contradictory positions which the fed-
eral court has taken, enjoining the cot-
leetion of taxes on $30,000.00 a mile, and
at the same tltme say that wo shall pay
Interest on $64,000.00 a mile Is not a
consistent position, and the people of
this stale will stand ns a body and up-
hold the hands of the officers until such
unjust positions are abolished."
The Democrat reporter asked Mr.
llenshaw what about the report that
Judge Hook's son was In the office with
the railroad attorneys; nbout Judge
Hook's brother being general commer-
cial agent of the Santa Fe railroad at
$8,00(1 or $10,000 a year, and alao about
Judge Hook’s having represented the
Santa Fe before he was appointed on
the federal bench In reply to this Mr.
Henshaw said: "It is true that Judge
Hook's son Is In the office with Mr.
Hugerman, the railroad attorney con-
ducting the railroad suits. As to
whether or not If his brother Is com-
mercial agent of the Santa Fe, and that
tils firm was formerly employed as an
attorney for the Santa Fe, and his son
being In tho office of the railroad at-
torneys, had any Influence upon the
Judge In this case can only be known
by the judge himself."
Mr. Heshaw Is now a candidate for
Corporation commissioner, and the Im-
portance of electing him as a member
•f the eommlatlon pending the litiga-
tion should not be under-estimated.
John H. Regan resigned from the
United States senate and was appointed
on the railroad commission by Governor
Hogg at a time when the services of
men possessing technical knowledge of
the railroad situation was demanded In
me slate of Texas. Mr. Henshaw Is
devoting most of his time before the
commission and the various courts and
will not have time to make a thorough
canvass, and It devolves upon those
throughout the state that realize the
importance of having a man on the
commission that Is equal to the railroad
lawyers and understands all the fallacies
that they present to win their cases, to
take an Interest In his behalf and see
that the people know of the necessity
of electing him as a member of the
commission. During the past year ha
has filed suit before the Interstate com-
merce commission and before the com-
mission of Oklnhomn, and returned back
to shippers $18,000.00 In overcharges,
securing for one shipper In the town of
Duncan $2,800.00,, which was paid over
on the llrst of last March. Work and
energy of this kind should not be over-
looked by the voters of Oklahoma, and
a man that Is devoting himself so ex-
clusively to the work and has shown his
ability to cope with the railroad law-
yer deserves the hearty support of the
Democratic party for the nomination of
President S. L. Gordon of Kendall
College will deliver the address ul the
high school graduates and 8. W. Marr
on behalf of the school hoard will di -
liver to each graduate the diploma at
tho annual high aehool commencement
which will be held on Thursday even-
ing, May 26. al eight o'clock. The
class numbers twenty-one graduates,
of which aggregation but three are

Sunday morning previous when, at 11
o'clock at the First M. 16. church, south
Rev. A, K. Smith will deliver the bac-
calaureate address to the graduating
students. On Tuesday evening at the
Grand Opera house the seniors will
give their play, "The Professor," which
promises to be an unusual treat. On
Wednesday evening will occur the Sen-
ior-Junior aliquot and on Friday ev-
ening the Alumni baquet will be given.
This will complete a week of the most
uusual Interest to the twenty-one gra-
duates who will hold the center of In-
terest on the stage of events
THESE TO SEE E
The Tulaa Commercial club In now
u member of the National Deep Water-
Ways association, membership in that
organization being taken out by the
board of directors In the name of the
club last evening. U J. F. Rooney, the
state representative Is also chairman,
of the deep waterways committee of
the club and It wag he who presented
the matter to the directors. Tin cltl-
Kens of Tulsa have always felt that
one of their greatest asset * Is the to*
cation on the bunks of the, Arkansas.
From It the city receives the best city
water supply in Oklahoma. That It can
be made navigable as far north as
Tulsa has been proven beyond a rea-
sonable doubt und Tulsa situated as
It will be some day at the head of
the river navigation is destined to be-
come one of the nation's great cities.
.Membership In the association means
considerable to Tulsa in tha^ It will
bring experts here to investigate con-
ditions and lend national support to
what has heretofore been purely a lo-
cal state movement.

a ho criticise hi. course and show signs [ Z
of political sanity.
He made a talk at the federal court |
room last night In which he said that |
he hnd asked $416,060 for a government
building for Muskogee and would not
accept less; and that If Muskogee cotila
not get more than $300,000 he would
agree that Tulsa was to have what It
could get, presumably $225 000. He
cited the fact that but one place in a
WHY THEY MOB THE BRIDE.
Only an Over-Vigorous Expression of
the “American Peasant's" Curiosity.
IV'hat a distinguished Engllshwvunai
refers to as the “American peasantry"
suffers a peculiar dislocation and mal-
adjustment on Manhattan Island. Else-
where on the continent, generally
district could get favors this term »f I speaking, the peasant has a free and
congress; that the postal receipts of i unobstructed range. He may know of,
Oklahoma City were about $216,000; j or h„ acquainted with, other peasants
those of Muskogee $90,000 and those of, who have more money than himself;
Tulsa $44,000. That about $20,000 was
being paid In rentals for federal pur-
poses at Muskogee and but a little ovei
3,000 In Tulsa. This. Indirectly, put
Tulsa out of the running.
He said he was proud of his standpat
record and predicted that his party
would be returned to power In the low.
er house of congress this fall. Also he
said there was no real dissension in the
ranks of the Republicans, again Indi-
rectly Indicating that the results of all
the late special elections were Just
playful Pickwickian methods of show-
ing love for and confidence In the dear
old grafting party. He said he almost
wished he did not live at Muskogee, as
It embarrassed him In his congressional
duties and made It hard to appear fair
to other places
One of the carpetbag governors of (he
territory, a Mf. Ferguson, made a
speech of an hour and a half abusing
the conduct of the state legislators for
appropriating more money for state
purposes than the territorial legislature
did for territorial purposes. He seemed
wholly unable to understand that the
state has many large and needed
schools and eleemosynary Institutions
and a new and large penitentiary-
each requiring money to build and
equip, and yet, In his total Inability to
reason on anything, be sailed Into the
elate administration and was actually
applauded at times by a few misguided
standpatters In the audience.
There Is n rumor out that the afore-
said Mr. Ferguson Is to bo a candidate
for governor on the standpat ticket, hut
It mas such a Joke that he was not
taken seriously. In fact ho socmed lo
feel that he had no more show of fool-
ing the people—the Republican people
—Into nominating him than has Oresgei
to be nominated and elected by any-
liody. The meeting reminded one of
the late non-partisan meetings held In
the same place over a month ago and
the crowd Just went through curiosity
to see the men and hear what kind of
excuse any man couud give for run-
ning for a Republican nomination In
1910. And the result will be like It
was here In Tulsa last month, a total
annihilation of whatever opposed the
militant und righteous Democracy.
TRIED AND ACQUITTED.
Merchant Who Killed Burglar insists
On Regular Hearing.’
McAlister, Ok., May 13.—J. M. laiih-
Im, merchant nnd tx-aldeifinun who
shot and killed a burglar In his store
Sunday night demanded today that lie
he arrested and tried. This was done.
He waived preliminary hearing In trie
justice court. Information was filed
In the superior court a special venire
Issued for a Jury and he was tried this
afternoon and acquitted. ID- desired
that the record be made to allow Ills
but practically all the persons and In-
stitutions within his visual Held are of
Ills own sort. He Is never put to a loss
by having to deal even remotely with
those of a different social order. Henee
his traditional sociability nnd easy di-
rectness of manner.
But on Manhattan he—or. to be more
strictly accurate, she—constantly hears
of strange beings, In close physical
proximity, between whom and herself
n wide social gulf extends. Considering
the long, almost unbroken traditions of
American peasantry, the effect of this
Is about what would be produced by
the advent of a menagerie In a com-
munity ivhero only domestic animals
had ever been seen. When such an
opportunity as the Gould-Drexel wed-
ding occurs, natural curiosity combined
with tho traditional desire to be so-
slable leads to demonstrations which
mnny critics regard ns unseemly.
Prohahly, however, the enthusiastic
mobbing of the bridal party which hap-
pens whenever two large fortunes are
linked by a Fifth avenue wedding Is
only an over- vigorous expression of
the American peasants wish to see, foi
once In a life time, a handful of per-
sons who, the newspapers say, belong
to a llfferent social order.

THE FAMOUS ENGLISH
After twenty-live years work, the
landscape gardeners have succeeded In
reproducing at Hotel Del Monte, one
of the seaside resorts of California, the
best example of English landscape art.
Among the features la the Maze, a
curious growth of box hedges In an
exact reproduction of the famous maze
In Hampton court, England. The ter-
races, lakes, lawns and flower beds and
rose gardens all follow the lines of the
most celebrated English estates where
landscape gardening has been followed
as tine art for a hundred years.
More than a million dollars has been
spent to produce these effects and
nearly flfteon hundred varieties of
plant life urc used In the scheme which
Is the most ambitious In America.
Andrew Carnegie, who spent part of
the winter there Is authority for the
statement that this place Is more like
a long established private English es-
tate, than any place he has ever visited
outside of England.
A ROOSEVELT REPORT DENIED
No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach
A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering from weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, which im-
pairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition
feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond-
ent, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such a man should use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. It cures diseases of the stomach and other
orians of digestion and nutrition. It enriches the blood,
Invliorates the liver, strenithens the kidneys, nourishes
the nerves, nnd so GIVES HEALTH 71XD STHENGTH TO
