BRYAN LOCKS HORNS
VVm. J. Bryan, the "Peerless Prince j
of the Prairies," continues to set out ■
prairie fires in the Democratic party
and to throw monkcywrenches into
the machinery. It has been but a few
days ago that lie took issue with I
President Wilson on important is-
sues, and is now in a controversy
with Homer S. Cumtnings, Chairman 1
of the national democratic committee 1
It seems that Mr. Cummings recent-
ly attended the inaugural hall and
banquet of Gov. Kdwards of Npw (
Jersey, at which a boom was Haunch- j
ed looking towards Edwards' nomi-
nation for president. Mr Edwards
is regarded as the king-bee of the ^
anti-prohibition forces of the nation,
and Mr. Hryan, in a speech in South
Carolina declared that even the |
thought of nominating a man like
Edwards for president was "the
greatest slander the democratic par-
ty has ever known; the democratic j
party leads in ideals and standards j
and shall not go down into the grave
with John Barleycorn."
Mr. Bryan also criticized Mr. Cum-1
tilings for being at the ball and
banquet, intimating that he was
thereby giving his assent to Gov.
Edwards' candidacy. Mr. Cummings
in a personal statement denies that
his presence could be so construed,
stating that he attended inaugural
just as he would that of any other
prominent democratic governor.
However, Mr.'1 Bryan is continuing
his criticism, regardless of Mr. Cum-
' mings' denial, and **it Spartensburg,
S. C., on Thursday night, said in the
course of his speech:
"Chairman Cummings' statement is
immaterial . His presence at the
Edwards dinner is inexcusable. He
knows Edwards promised to make
New Jersey as wet as the Atlantic
.ocean and after the election an-
nounced he would, if possible, pre-
vent the enforcment of the national
amendment in New Jersey.
"The reports of the banquet in-
dicate that the inaugural was inci-
dental and that the starting of the
presidential boom was the important
"If Mr. Cummings has any sym-
pathy with the Edwards boom he
is not fit to be head of the demo-
cratic organization and if he is not
intelligent enough to. recognize the
injury he is doing the party by pro-
fessing impartiality between the Ed-
wards boom and legitimate candi-
dates, he ought to relieve the or-
ganization from embarassment by
Evidences multiply that Mr. Bry-
an is going to make an earnest effort
to dominate the democratic party
and to suggest the platform that will
be adopted at San Francisco as well
as dictate the nominal ion.
Profiteering Landladies Will Be
Force to Make Revenue Returns
Some of Norman's rooming house
keepers are charging forty dollars a
month for their rooms, according to
information received by the Chamber
of Commerce this week from Uni-
versity authorities, in which j.he
authorities stated that a number of
complaints pointing out the condi-
tions had been received from parents
of University students in various
cities in Oklahoma. These parents
declar that boarding house keep-
ers are profiteering off their student
roomers this winter.
University authorities admitted,
according to C. W. Kuwitzky. C. of
