Judge Green Speaks of the Nation -
izing of Kansas.
Judge George S. Green ha-, returned
to < ivitlirip after n week spent in Kan-
sas, visiting Winlield, Topeka, Iieloit,
Junction t.'ity and several other points.
The trip was taken in the interest of
clients hut he tnok occasion to notice
the '"Nationizing" development now
in progress in the Sunflower state.
"Ef thr matter of resubmission wore
today placed before Kansas, prohib-
ition, move than ever before would
triumph. It is surprising," said Judge
Green, "to see the turn in the tide in
favor of the enforcement of the law.
The state at present is undergoing the
greatest excitement since the days of
"En Winfleld. all one could hear was
regarding the appointment of one
hundred Bpecial police by the mayor in
his efforts und determination to keep
"En Topeka, Mrs. Carrie Nation is
the only theme. You can hear nothing
else wherever you go. E spent some
time there and one leading attorney
asserted that with hut the slightest
encouragement the people would have
attempted, at least, to mob Judge
ilazen. Not for what he did, but for
what he said in regard to Mrs. Nation.
E'ublic sentiment is almost unanimous
on her side. We read the newspapers'
accounts, but when one mingles with
the people and hears their expressions
of sympathy for this woman, it sur-
prises one completely.
"On the train E traveled with a Iie-
loit editor. He admitted that he had
always been considered in favor of the
joints, but in tbe future his paper will
stand for tbe stringent enforcement
of the law. Beloit.be said, has be-
come so overrun with thugs and drunk
enness that it is not safe to be alone
on the streets after night. The editor's
wife with her baby, only recently, was
knocked from the walk by a drunken
"In Junction City the hottest fight
ever known ia in progress. Notice was
served on the joiutists to quit business
They agreed to quit on March I. But
the liquor revenue has almost sup-
ported the town and many people hate
to lose it. Both sides have agreed to
fettle the matter at the coming eleo
tion and the battle is on in earnest."
REFUSES TO EAT.
PRESIDENT SEES OKLAHOMANS.
Many of Them Call On The Chief
A Washington dispatch of yesterday
says:—Yesterday was "Oklahoma" day
at the White House. More people
from the territory passed through the
executive mansion and shook hands
with the president than ever before.
Major Pentecost and Captain Maine
called on the president iu the morning
in their ofliciul capacity, as members
of Governor Barnes' staff. / hater
rangements were made by Delegate
Flynn for the reception of all Oklaho-
mans in tbe city. Shortly after 12
o'clock the president appeared in the
•aat room and there received the visi-
tors from the territory, extending each
a hearty hand shake and best wishes.
It was after one o'clock this morn-
ing before the special car carrying the
territorial band and ladies from Guth-
rie, pulled out of the station. At the
last moment Col. Mulhall and datigh-
ter decided to remain over until today
and take regular train.
John Jenaon. agent of the Otoe and
1'onoa Indiana left tonight for home.
Jos. McNeal has commeneed his can-
didacy for governor of Oklahoma and
will remain here for several days in
anticipation that tome decision may
be reached in the near future.
Guthrie Man's yueer Remedy
J. M. Iiiitiards. who resides with his
family at 715 East Warner avenue,
Guthrie hus been fasting since January
0. and maintains his determination to
do so during the remainder of his life.
Occasionally he will suck the juice
from an orange, possibly from three to
four times per week, but otherwise he
has taken no nourishment during a pe
rind of over forty days.
Mr. Richards is probably 5(1 years of
age. lie has been afflicted with stom-
ach troubles for several years, and iu
looking about for n remedy lie became
interested in the writings of a Colora-
doan, who advocates fasting and de-
rides the idea of so much eating.
Richards immediately entered into
correspondence with the man from
Colorado and has been following his
advice during the fast. He claims that
a prominent physician, who did live in
Guthrie, also advised him to try a fast
for his stomach's sake,
Richards began his last 'mi January
0, and ate nothing whatever until Jan-
uary 16, when in the evening he ate a
ittle meal gruel with some milk.
Near the close of the month he sum-
moned a prominent local physician and
asked him to prescribe in his case.
Richards was very weak from taking
no nourishment, but he claimed that
the gruel which he had eaten on Jan.
10, was still in his stomach. He also
told the doctor that he was Buffering
as the result of a big lump in his throat
and asked that he be given something
to make him vomit, believeing that
tbis would dislodge tbe lump
The physician, sore to relieve the
man's mind than for any other reason,
administered an emetic, and the sick
man vomited for fully an hour. After
which he declared himself as feeling
greatly relieved, both from the gruel
in his stomach and the lump in his
throat. The physician has not l>een
called since. although it is stated that
tbe fast is still in progress.
Et is also stated that Richards, not
content with bis own fasting, has pre-
scribed short rations for his children,
several of whom attend school. The
children, it ia said, are allowed to eat
no breakfast and only a light supper,
while the noon meal must be a particu-
lar menu of easily digested foodstuffs.
When the physician called on Rich-
ards he informed his patient that he
was suffering from a nervous trouble.
The next day he wrote a letter to the
physician, requesting a long response
in writing, stating the relation be-
tween a nervous trouble and a lump in
The case is excitin&a great amount
of interest among physicians, who be-
lieve generally that an investigation
should be made.
Kentucky's Governor is Charged j
With Abuse of Pardon-
An attempt will ho made at the next
session of the legislature in Kentucky i
to impeach Governor Beckham, pro-!
vided the senate is anti-machine. The j
charge will be using the pardoning
power for gain.
A telegram from New Orleans last j
night states that Senator llarrcil dis-j
(iussed the recent pardoning of Ed '
Alvey. the king of Louisville gamblers,
by Governor Beckham. The senator
said the governor's criticism of Judge
Barker was unwarranted, and that the j
governor's action was simply a part of
an agreement made before the election |
between Beckham's managers and the
gamblers of Louisville. He said that
the terms of the agreement were that
the gamblers should throw their in-
fluence and votes for his election and
that he would, in case any of them
were convicted, pardon them. This
agreement, the senator said, he was
able to prove.
As one proof of the governor's guilt,
the senator instanced a case in his
own observation where a prominent
representative from Louisville, whose
name he refused to disclose, had told
him (the senator) that he had come to
Frankfort to demand the pardon of a
convict, and lie gave the governor till
4 o'clock on the same evening to grant
the pardon. The pardon was granted.

Winfield Woman's Divorce Suit.
A remarkable divorce suit is re-
ported by the Winfield Courier, the
plaintiff being Mrs. Clara V. Moore,
wife of the Are chief at Arkansas City,
who alleges that her husband has driv-
en her from home because she would
not stop going to church. "He told
her once," said the Courier, '"Ant to go
to church because only immoral
women went there, and that be did
not want her to associate with such
characters. She went, however, and
when she returned he locked her out
of the house and refused to let Iter in."
The Courier adds that he drove his
stepdaughter from home because she
wouldn't quit working in the store of

Anothe/Road For Enid.
"Railroad building now seems to be
tbe order in Oklahoma," says the Knid
Coming Events. "For years the two
great systems, the Rock Island and
Santa Fe, have monopolized the field
in this territory and have reaped tbe
gelden harvest. Seeing the two cor-
porations growing rich from the busi-
ness of Oklahoma, other lines have
entered the field. The Choctaw was
tbe first to enter as a competitor, then
the Frisco exteaded its line from
Sapulpa to Oklahoma City.
"The Rock Esland and Santa Fe have
built spurs along their lines running
out from some of the principle towns,
but it is not spurs the people want; it
is through lines. 80 far Oklahoma
City was the only town to get com-
peting lines and it has made a great
wholesale city, But with the building
of the Frisco, Knid will enter this field
and while she has not a rivsl in the
territory as a retail center, nothing
short of eclipsing auything in okla-
homa as a wholesale center will satisfy
"By the middle of April the Frisco
will have given us an outlet to the
northeast and a through line to St
Louis. It will thenbuildon southwest
opening that new country to Enid as a
wholesale district. Then from the
southeast the line will be pushed to
Guthrie and on to the rich coal fields
of the Indian Territory. With such
system of roads there is no doubt but
that in ten years Enid will be the first
city in sue as she is now in business."

Country Is Great.
Robert Wilcox, the delegate to Con-
gress from Hawaii, is quoted as saying
of the inaugural ceremonies; "The
inaugural of President McKinley was
one of the grandest pageants E have

vastness of the United States until I
saw the inaugural parade to-day.
Everywhere there was evidences of

ment. I am exceedingly glad to have
seen such a sight and shall remember
itaslongasl live, I was told that

rangements. It wsh splendid eaough
