Ever since the early days of ama-
teur civilization a peculiar and wond-
erful make up of mankind bobs up in
: legislative halls introducinglbills that
are not only ridiculous hut actually
I as humorous as anything ever writ-
ten by Mark Twain, Bill Nye at\d
others. Representative Lydick has
j introduced a remarkable bill making
it a misdemeanor for any citizen, kid,
girl or woman to talk to a member of
the Oklahoma legislature until after
the legislature has adjourned "sine
die," under a penalty of both fine and
imprisonment. Here is the first sec-
tion of this laughable measure.
"Section 1. That hereafter it shall
be uulawful for any person not a
member of the legislature or gover-
nor of the territory of Oklahoma to
talk or converse with any member of
the legislature, and in su:h convers a -
tlon to directly or indirectly attempt
in any manner fay word of mouth or
otherwise ta influence the vote or
act.o.i of any member of the legisla-
ture upon any act, bill, law, resolu-
tion, memorial, motion or other mat-
ter which has been, is at that time or
whichsuch person may desire to have
brought, prevent from being brought
or have reasonable ground for be-
lieving will be brought before either
house of said legislature, or in any
talk or conversation to express wh u
action he desires to have taken, or
would advise any member of the leg-
islature to take, or which he himself
would take, upon any such matters,
until beth houses of said legislature
have adjourned sine die."
Did anybody ever hear ot such a
laughable measure introduced in any
legislative body; except perhaps a
East of Court House.

War Over Gambling
Citizens Of Walter Refuse To Stand
Lawton, Okla., Jan. --After •
lull of a few weeks the wai between
the officials at Walter and the gamb-
ling element again began raging
Saturday, and reached tnat stage
where an aggregation of the element
something like twenty in number
conceived a lynching bee with the
city marshal as the unfortunate sub-
ject. The conception resulted in a
furor of a few hours and died away.
W. It. Butts, a farmer who lives
nine miles south ot Walter, was in
that town Saturday and Imbibed to a
large extent of the spirits of liquor.
On his high horse he proceeded to
take In the town. City Marshal W.
E. Knight apprehended him and at-
tempted to take him In charge, but
Butts resisted arrest and showed
tight. The inarshel carried his point
by striking Butts over the head twice
with his revolver and putting him
out of business for the time being.
Butts soon recovered and gave band
for bis appearance before the justlc e

ANENT THE WEATHER.
ft reminds one of the story of the
young wife whose husband insisted on
playing poker, and was steadily los-
iug. He kept saying that "Luck
would change," and she. remembering
an old retired gambler as a friend of
her lamented father, went to him
with her pathetic little sto-y, and
asked him, "Is it true? Will his
And the old gentleman sMid, "Yes,

change. It will run along this way
for awhile, and then it will get

saying. It runs along from day to
day, with the promise of a changt—

North Enid dog ordinance which
makes it a misdemeanor for dogs to
bark out loud in the night time. A
member of the legislature who is not
an egotistical fool would desire to
consult his constituents as to the
merits of any bill und r considera-
tion, and, it is perfectly right that
he should do so and the rights of the
people in tbese premises should not
be abridged. The ridiculousness of
such a bill should be apparent to any
one of ordinary intelligence, besides,
it is an insult to the intelligence of
evury member of the general assem-
bly. Of course, it may be true that
Representative Lydick cannot trust
himself to talk to his fellow citizens
or be talked to, but in order to make
himself safe on his apparent weak
nesshe could muffle his ears and muz-
zle his mouth, but to deprive his col-
leagues of the privilege of Indulging
in conversation over the relative val-
ue of any measure is not only cruel
To bring this matter closer to the
minds of the Wavk readers let us
suppose that congress had passed such
an act the day before the excellent
Enid lobby reached Washington lo
work for a public building and feder-
al court for Enid, and that our good
citizens,the HonoraWeSam Marshall,
Edmund Frantz and JoUn Murphy had
been arrested, fined, and jailed for
being caught talking to various con-
gressmen. just tblnk of it,/ 3uch
actions on the part of congress would
have created a worse indignant up-
rising in Enid than occurred In St.
Petersburg the other day
Then again supposing the Lydick
bill does passjand the 810 debitors of
the late Citizens Bank holdup would
gn to Guthrie and join the Bufferirs of
the Capitol National Bank in lobbying
for the passage of the Inguilre bill
requiring banks to give security for
their depositors' money, and the
whole crowd w2 arrested, lined or
jailed, or both: wouldn't It be adding
