LAWSON GIVES OUT FIGURES
On His Campaign Against the Frenz-
ied Insurance Grafters
Boston, Mass., Nov. 3.—Thomas W.
dawson in an interview today gave
some figures on the campaign he is
conducting against the big insurance
companies. He says he has sent out
three million pieces of mail matter
asking for policy holders' proxies.
These cost $42,000 for postage and
$13,000 for printing. He established a
private printing plant for the pur-
pose, employing seventy-nine persons.
He has twelve clerks opening mail
and sixty-seven tabulating proxiioa,
addressing documents and folding
bulletins. He claims to have had 16,-
000 proxy coupons returned and to
have sent proxy blanks to 29,000 ap-
plications throughout the country.

A DOUBLE HEADER TRAIN
Load too Heavy for Even
ex-boss of the Canadian county democ
racy, stole the cane and sent It to the
Territorial Historical society.—State
Bill Riley was the thief. He stole
the cane, and in no doubt intended to
keep it, not as an historic relic how-
ever; but his conscience smote him
and before the above item was put in
type he returned the cane, with prom-
ises profuse, to try to lead a better
life in the future. It is noticeable
fact that Bill Riley, Jim Duffy and
Mark Libbey, are better men since
the Oliver revival, than they ever
were before. Mark Libby has caught
less fish and killed fewer quail than
ever before in his life Jim Duffy has
quit lying and people who used to
miss little things when Bill Riley had
been around are now recovering them.
HALLOW EEN PARTY
The cotton editor of the Oklahoma
Post, published at Oklahoma City tells
of an enormous load of cotton brought
El Reno on one train, which probably
arrived in the night as no one here
remembers having seen it. The Post
The cotton movement has been un-!
usimlly brisk for the past week in
central and southwestern Oklahoma, event yesterday
where the frost generally reaches
first. Fifteen thousand bales of cot-'
ton were received on one train from
Mangum at El Reno last Friday and I
6.000 more arrived Saturday. A spec- j
ial train of twenty cars of cotton came
in this city last Friday from the west-
ern part of the territory and 2,550
bales Sunday. All this cotton is be-
ing delivered to the compresses at
these two places. It is estimated that
Tackey" Surprise at the Riley Home,
A "tackey" party drifted into W. H.
Riley's home Wednesday night, as a
surprise, and the Riley family and the
guests enjoyed the evening to perfec-
tion. In fact, Riley celebrated the
to such an extent
that he failed to give the printshop
men a tip until too late for publication
The visitors were: Mr. and Mrs. Will
Redder, Mrs. John Ozmun. Mr. and
Mrs. Tom Abbott, Miss Goldle Rock-
well, Mrs. Courtney, Mr. and Mrs. H.
E. Beck. Mr. and Mrs. V. B. Allee, Mr
and Mrs. Gene Hoadley, Mrs. Prentice,
Mrs. Carpenter, Mr. and Mrs. L. G.
A S. Perry, general manager of the
Canadian Valley Farmers' Telephone
company, was in the city today, clos-
ing up arrangements for constructing
a ti lephone line through the country
Bor li .1 ml east of El Reno. He has
coi " 'i i> d with twenty of the most
proninent farmers of Reno township
to ! stall telephones «t their homes
and connect a line w ith the Bell com-
pat > s office in El Rem*. The line will
be ennrtnicted and the connection
made in less than three weeks. The
farmers now contracted with are: L.
n. Clife. A. W. Shaw. J. B. Pool, Smith
Taylor. .1. C. Carter. George Merkel,
Henry C Carter. John W. Cobb. N. J.
Myers. W. F. Lamb, W. F. Combs, J.
H. Bolton, George D. McGinness, R. I..
Jennings, A. Fickle, J S. Palmer, J, S.
Gregory, Wilson Sharpe. Henry Wolf
and Oscar Potts.
Several more farmers In that neigh-
borhood will soon have their names
added to the list, and it will not be
long until every farmer in that region
will have telephone connections with
the county seat.
The cost to the farmer Is one dollar
per month, and there Is no fee charg-
ed for talking. The rural 'phones be-
come a part of the El Reno exchange.
Tomorrow Mr. Perry will go to Pied-
mont to confer in regard to the con-
struct but of another line, which will
connect over one-hundred more farm-
ers with El Reno. The next two
years will see every portion of the
county connected with the towns of
the county by telephone, and the dis-
tance between the towns and farms
will have been eliminated, so far as
conversing Is concerned. A dozen
new lines are now under construction.

A fire broke out in the cotton on the
