A frightened team that ran away
in Devole broke down a telephone
pole and pulled the head gear from
a central operator's rats, breaking
up her conversation with her "man"
on the other end and causing a
islation this year, but the Indian

from $300,(100 to $lo0,000. This

him. His absence and his vote for

| implements are going to leave him
at home. It was thought for a
, time that his divorced wife could
j save him, but the people of his dis-
trict say if lie is not tit to be Mrs,
McGuire's husband, he isn't tit to
be Congressman for 200.000 people.
This logic is not so bad.
It is now quite certain that the
bill prohibiting gambling in farm
products in all forms will cease.
New York gamblers who call them-
selves merchants are making a
bard fight, but if Uncle Joe will
keep his bony hands off, the bill is
absolutely sure to become a law
and seep from the face of this earth
this vicious practice of debauching
prices and heaping burdens on both
producer and consumer. Those hav-
ing bills on the subject are Burle-
son, of Texas; Scott, of Kansas;
Ferris, of Oklahoma, and Heflin, of
Alabama. It is not known whose
bill will be reported but that is im-
material as results is what is want-
It is not known at this time what
will be done about the great reduc-
tion in the amount to be appropri-
ated for schools. It is now thought
that when that item is reached that
Ferris or Carter will move an
amendment to put it back in the
bill. This becomes necessary by
reason of Old Bony-handed Cannon
taking Carter off of the committee
on Indian affairs so McGuire could
play politics and get all the credit

from which chickens escaped. They mittee in the minority room of Con-
ran about cackling in the yard of a gress, presided over by Hon. James
man whose conversation had been Loyd, of Missouri. Ferris is the

was the laugh of his sweetheart, has been carefully going over the

became reconciled. mak great gains in all of the Nor-
thern and Eastern states on account
of Taft's unpopularity and the ter-
rible effect of the late Aldrich-Payne
tariff law. The tariff is the undo-
ing of the Republican party. They
are so dominated by the New Eng-
lartd factories and trusts that they
have lost their hope on the people.
It was the sense of the meeting
that every Democrat must lay aside
any petty bickering in their own
state and uproot Cannonism, boss-
ism and high tariff taxes.
The Indi an appropriation bill
contains a section providing that
$40,000 be appropriated and expen-
ded for the checking of consump-
tion, small pox and trachema and
other contagious diseases among
the Indian tribes. Mann, of Chica-
go, fought this provision holding
that the states should take care of
their own poor if any there be.
Ferris, of Oklahoma, called his at-
tention very forcible to the fact
that it would be wrong in principle
and in fact to have the state pay
this, as they are not permitted by
reason of federal restrictions to tax
the Indian lands. II e furthur
showed to Congress that the enab-
ling act admitting Oklahoma into
the Union made every citizen a vot-
er. whether .he hi white, black or
red. Now to let them vote and not
be tamed is enough, rather than to
let the government shift its duty to
the trilii', to the stale prior to the
time their restrictions are removed.
Ferris said he welcomed the early
coming of the day when the Indians
would be their own lord and mas-
tor and that they could handle
their own affairs and be men among
