Hobart citizens will think twice here-
after before asking questions of law-

at a recent meeting of lawyers In that

Oklahoma City—Oklahoma has won
another Interstate rute case before
ihe Interstate commerce commission,
tccording to a certified copy of a de-
sision by the commission in the recent
cement rate case, received by the
itate corporation commission.
The decision opens the Texas mar- ;

1912, the charging of higher rates
than a scale of from 10 to 13 cents

to apply, while a different Bcale was
proposed from Cement, Marlow, Cham- j

the proposed advances, which would
have been prohibitive as to the move-

If a state fair is any Indication of
development, the fifth annual Okla-
homa State Fair at Oklahoma City was
certainly a glowing tribute to Okla-
homa's commercial, Industrial and ag-
ricultural enterprise. In rapid growth,
substantial Improvement and general
attractiveness, It was a surprise. The
fact that It has taken Its place among
the great fairB of the country without
a cent of financial aid from the state,
speaks well for the management and
the fair-going Bplrlt of Oklahomans.
The people of the state as well as
the exhibitors have learned the bene-
fits of this great educational Insti-
tution and It Is now recognized as the
annual meeting lace of thep people of
the atate for education and amuse-
ISach year this institution has shown
a profit although no dividends have
been paid to Its stockholders. The
surplus each year has been spent In
the erection of new buildings and the
geperal Improvement isf the grounds.
Many new Improvements have beeu
planned for 1912 which will add great-
ly to the convenience of visitors and
The annual report of the secretary,
I. S. Malian, read at the annual stock-
holders meeting shows the amount in
vested In buildings and Improvements
to be $320,337.93. Total receipts for
1911, $99,615.50, operating expenses for
1911, $77,224.82, and the net profit $22,-
390.68. The total attendance for 1911
was 130,000 and the premiums amount-
ing to $10,097.74 were paid In the fol-
lowing departments: Live stock $11,-

work on the state house, was made
November 25 by the Capitol Develop-

state the bond of $100,000 which It
made for the completion of the cap-
itol building, and also to deed to the

Dragged By Foot and Mangled
Muskogee, Okla.—Charlie Plerson,
10 years old, was thrown from a horse
at Coweta and received Injuries from
which he will probably die. When the
horse threw him the boy's foot hung
in the stirrup. He was dragged three
hundred yards. As the horse turned
the boy's body swung wide and struck
a telephone pole with such force that
the saddle girth was broken, releas-
ing the boy, but breaking his leg In
three places and fracturing his skull.

Contract for Annual Report Let
Oklahoma City—8tate Printer Giles
Farris let the contract for the print-
ing of the annual report of the labor
department to the Leader Printing
company at Guthrie. The contract
price is $2,245. The work Is to be
completed In sixty days.
Although by the last seslson acts,
•U taxes levied upon an ad valorem
basis for the fiscal year ending June
SO, 1912, were due and payable No-
vember 1, with a penalty of 18 per
cent attaching on all delinquents aft-
er December 1, the letter of the law
will not be met In Oklahoma county.
This is caused by the fact that tha
■tate equalization board was delayed
in returning the valuation of Okla-
homa county which naturally resulted
in a delay of the county clerk to cer-
tify the rolls to the county treasurer.

They Feel the Betrayal
Washington, D. C.—It is reported
that Attorney General Wickersham has
ordered one of the most sweeping in-
vestigations ever inaugurated by the
department of Justice as a result of
revelations made in the confessions of
tho McNamara brothers in Los An-
geles. Charges have been made to the
department that a huge conspiracy,
dangerous to life and property, exists,
with Indianapolis as Its headquarters.
Scores of arrests may follow.
Los Angeles—A hint at further de-
velopments in the bribery scandal that
has grown to overshadow the case
of John J. and James B. McNamara,
confessed dynamiters, was made by
John D. Fredericks, district attorney.
Asked if he had in his possession as
has been rumored, besides the $4,000
taken when the arrest In the Franklin
case was tnade, enough money used as
bribes of witnesses and talesmen sum-
moned in the famouB case to pay all
the rewards that had been offered—
"It is more or less true that we have
taken money to that amount from the
witnesses and from other prospective
urymen which had been offered for
purposes of bribery.
"That will make a complete Btory
some day, but It is not ready today.
When It comes I will let you know."
A movement has been started t®
have all labor organizations la the
country to ask for maximum penalty
for the McNamaras. The unions feel
the betrayal of organized labor.
LARGE INCREASE SHOWN
IN OIL PRODCTION
United States Leads the World in Out-
put of Crude Product—Okla-
homa in Second Place
Washington—More than 200,000,000
barrels of oil, with a value of nearly
$128,000,000, were produced In the
United States last year, according to
David T. Day of the United States
geological survey. In an -advance chap-
ter on petroleum from "Mineral Re-
sources of the United States" for
The petroleum industry in the
United States, says Dr. Day, has been
characterized by a phenomenal ln«
crease each year for the last four
years, ftach year's gain over that
of the year before has been so re-
markable as to lead to the belief that
the limit of production has been
reached, but the Increase has con-
tinued rapidly. After varying between
50,000,000 ^nd 60,000,000 barrels annu-
ally In the decade between 1890 and
1900, the oil output was over 63,000,000
barrels in 1900 and Increased to 88,.
000,000 barrels In 1902. In 1903 It
passed the 100,000,000-barrel mark, In
1904 It was over 170,000,000 barrels,
and In 1905 nearly 135,000,000 barrels.
After a slight decline in 1906 the out-
put rose again, In 1907 reaching 166,-
000,000 barrels. It was 178,000,000
barrels In 1908, 183,000,000 barrels In
1909, and 209,566,048 barrels In 1910,
a gain of 14 per cent over the record
output of 1909. This brought the total
output since the beginning of the pe-
troleum Industry to more than two bil-
lion barrels. Oklahoma is second in
production, according to the report.
Forster Is Promoted
Washington—Rudolph Forster, who
has been connected with the White
House in an executive capacity for
more than 10 years, was appointed
executive clerk to the president at
a salary of $5,000 a year and Sherman
P. Allen, of the Washington bureau
of the New York Herald, was sworn
in as bis successor as chief clerk.

New York—Fifty persons were
knocked down and seven more seri-
ously Injured when a runaway auto-

W. L DOUGLAS' TRUST PUN
Manufacturer Thinks Government
8hould Obtain Publicity by a
Large business organizations have
come to stay. We cannot go back to
old conditions. We must meet world
competition. Large concerns can pro-
duce £iods at lower cost than small
ones. Germany favors large corpora-
tions. The method of the present na-
tional administration Is to dissolve
the great organizations and make
them smaller, which Is a backward
step. There should be no limit to a
corporation doing a large and legiti-
mate business, such as would be pos-
sible under the licensing plan which
I favor, writes W. L. Douglas, former
governor of Massachusetts, in the
Prejudices against corporations
merely because they are big, perhaps,
must be done away with. They give
labor better returns. They cheapen
product and thus benefit the consum-
er. They give opportunities to small
Investors who get returns otherwise
unattainable. They employ able
young men who have no capital at
all, but who receive handsome sal-
aries for their ability and service.
In place of tho Sherman law It is
my opinion there should be a depart-
ment at Washington to grant licenses
to all manufacturers and corporations
In this country who do an Interstate
The law should be made so clear,
plain and definite that it could not be
misunderstood. It should require >11
capital to be paid In full. Semi-yearly
statements should be given to the
public and certified by a public ac-
countant. There should be a board
of examiners In each state to look aft-
er those corporations Just as our na-
tional banks are watched by the na-
tional government. They should have
the right to enter the offices and ex-
amine the records of all the direc-
torates of these companies.
