Senator Gore Returned
From Long Journey
Lawton, Okla., Sept. 14.—"The
new tariff law is worse than the old
one the republicans promised to re-
vise. People throughout the Mid-
dle West are dissatisfied with the
law and disgusted with the repub-
lican attitude, while they generally
commend the Democratic fight for
lower rates. As a result of the new
tariff legislation I predict that the
Democrats will control the next
house of representatives," said Sen-
ator T. I*. Gore, who returned home
v'on the afternoon Frisco for the first
time sincc the recent tariff session
of the special congress, since con-
great adjourned he having been
busily engaged touring the country
on Chautaqua lectures.
He was met at the station by his
family .and a large number of his
personal and political friends who
gave him a warm reception and
whom he greeted most cordially.
"1 am glad to get home," he said,
"and hope to rest up for a while
among home folks."
The Senator seemed to be in ex-
cellent health despite fatigue from
almost continual travel. He will
remain in Lawton for several days
and will probably spend some time
in the mountains where, at Medi-
cine park, his wife and family have
been spending the summer. Later
he will leave for a trip over the
state to "talk with the boys" and

The choir will have charge of the
music and we shall expect great
power in the song service.

• Called Down"
A prominent republican was loud-
ly berating the democratic admin-
istration recentely in a railroad pas-
enger coach, for loaning school land
money on city property contrary to i
the provisions of the constitution.
He was promptly "called down" by
a gentleman who happened to be
present and who personally knew
that not a dollar of school land
money had EVER been loaned on
city property. Money has only-
been loaned from the school land
fund on three kinds of securities:
First—State Bonds; second—Coun-
ty Bonds; third—First mortgages
on improved farm lands. These
are well known facts and the exact
amount loaned on each of these
securities was recently published in
full by the school land department
and the fabrication of the said well in attendance and at noon all en-
known republican suggests the hard splendid wedding dinner,
