The senior class of the Haskell
Stale school gave a play at the opera
house last Wednesday evening for
the benefit of the cluss fund.
The house was well filled aud an
evening of entertainment was enjoyed
by those present. This class of seven
will graduate on tho 24ih of May
Haskell school is reported as in a
very leur'shing condition. The work
of J. H. •‘•sslinger as superintendent
deserves a great amount of praise for
the successful wav in which he has
handled this institution. With an en-
rollment of over two hundred pupils,
and with the work in all departments
working up to the highest standard,
the school is us the best condition it
has bet n in its history.
The creamtry department which has
been added since the lirst of the year

Hon. Pat Malloy, Tulsa County’s
county attorney, makes his announce-
ment as a candidate for re-election In
this issue of the Journal and submits
his candidacy to the Democratic pri-
mary, which will be held on August
6th. of this year.
Mr. Malloy is now serving his first
term as County Attorney and his re-
cord stands out his arguments for
making good. The duties of County
Attorney involve a great deal of work
in Tulsa County. And it has been
with untiring zeal and energy that
Mr. Malloy has made his first admin-
istration one of success. Besides at-
tending t othe duties of prosecuting
the offenders, some very important
opinions on taxes, and the business
administration of the county have
been successfully handled by Tulsa
county’s young attorney. That Mr.
Malloy has made a good official seems
to be the opinion of all.
