Delegate Callahan arrived from the

and returned to his home near Hennes-
sey today. Tomorrow, he stated, he
will leave for Washington to resume
watching the trend of congressional
In a casual conversation with a
State Capital reporter today, Mr.
Callahan presented a rather new Idea
of Oklahoma In the east. He said that
our good reputation predominates—
overshadows the bad—a condition that
is not generally believed to be true by
the people of Oklahoma. "Why, said
Mr. Callahan, "Oklahoma Is consid-
ered the garden spot of the world by
the east. There is uo talk of any
droughth or failure of crops. This is
strange, in view of much damaging
new* that is sent out. but It is true.
It may be accounted for by the fact
that in urging the opening of the
several tracts for settlement the beauty
and fertility of the country was
greatly dwelt upon, and this lias made
the dominent impression."
Mr. Callahan does not know when
the free home bill will come up for

pretty things about Oklahoma in an
interview at Kansas City yesterday.
Kef rring to crop prospects, lie said:
"Down in Oklahoma the wheat crop is
practically made and harvesting will
shortly begin. The acreage is report-
ed ns large and the showing of t'.ie
crop is something that delights the
cvc. The people there have also a
large acreage of cotton that promises
well. They a e all happy and hard at
work, and have strong reason to ex
pect a bountiful harvest The effects
of these conditions are felt by us in
our business relations We are down
into the country where the crops are
ripening Evidently the producers
are at this time heavy purchasers It
is indicative of a healthy condition
when the farmers are heavy purchas-
ers of improved machinery, and from
our freight shipments that is and has
been the case."

No Had Storm* lint. I'lniity of Itain Pre-
The storm conditions passing from
west to east during the last days of
May will be subsiding to the eastern
parts of the country the 1st day of
June. Pleasant weather generally
will prevail during the first week of
the month, the greatest tendency to
storm conditions failing about the 4th
to (ith. On these dates the tempera-
ture will rise, the barometer fall, and
showers will occur in various parts of
the country. Cool nights and pleas-
ant days will continue up to about the
8th in most parts of the continent.
A Vulcan storm period is central on
the loth, extending from 8th to 13th.
During this period the moon passes
from the first quarter on the equator
on the 8th, to the extreme south de-
1 ination, and full on the 14th, passing
her pingree, or nearest approach to the
earth, on nth. This period is also co
incident with the regular magnetic
disturbance, central always about
June 11th. It. will be natural, there-
fore, to expect much electrical display,
many showers anil sudden gusts,break-
ing into violent thunder and wind
storms in many sections, from about
the loth to after the 14 th.
It is well to repeat here what we
have often said concerning these June
solstice storms. The electrical dis-
plavs arc generally very vivid and
continuous, often Hashing in all parts •
of the heavens the whole nig:it long. I
Hut nervous people should know that
there is little danger in this lightning
During the rapid, vicious thunder
storms at this time it U highly imprud-
ent to take refuge under trees, or to
s't in open doors or windows. It must
•e remebered also that the storm
louds move erratically throughout the
month of June. Their general course
is from west to east, as usual, hut there
is continual local tendency to wnirl
suddenly back after they have gone
east of you, pouring down unlooked
for gusts of rain and wind.

I'lTTsm uoii, Fa., June 1. An an-
archist picnic at a grove near Glen-
wood was raided yesterday by the po-
lice and 47 men taken prisoners. The
charge preferred against the prisoners
is disorderly conduct and breaking tho
city ordinance, which prohibits the sale
of beer on a picnic ground. It is
said lotteries were also in operation,
and several rillcs and a large amount
of bullets were captured. The picnic
was being held in celebration of the
release of a few days ago of Henry
lluucr and Carl Nold from the peniten-
tiary, where they had served four years
for inciting riot at Homestead at the
time of the big strike at that place.
