Reign of Terror in
El Furte, Sinaloa, Mex., Oct. 21.
Revolting federal soldiers under Col-
onel Beltran, together with what ap-
pears to be a new rebellion on the
part of the "General" Banderas,
former revolutionary chief and erst-
while self-constituted governor of Si-
naloa, has caused a reign of terror
in this state. Col. Jose M. Oshoa,
chief of federal rurales with 250 men
has left here to occupy Sinaloa and
the arrival of more federals to sup-
press the growing disorders is eager-
ly awaited by the populace.
The revolt of the detachment com-

It is reported from all over the
state that fully 70 per cent of the
winter wheat crop of Oklahoma has
been planted and that the entire acre-
age will be in the ground by Novem-
ber 1. In the wheat district of north-
ern Oklahoma, where plenty of mois-
ture is in the ground, the wheat is
up and from three to six inches high.
It is estimated that a 25 per cent
acreage increase over last year is be-
ing made in the fall sowing.
The feature of especial interest,
which distinguishes the planting this
fall from previous planting is the In-
creased degree with which growers
are using the Turkey Red variety of
seed. This is a hard winter wheat
and brings a better price than the
soft or mixed varieties. The state
agricultural board estimates that if
farmers will grow hard wheat the
annual returns for Oklahoma will be
increased by a quarter of a million
dollars. As a consequence the board,
assisted by the railway companies
and the A. & M. college agencies, con-
ducted an extensive hard wheat seed
campaign last summer, which is hav-
ing a telling effect on the present

New York, Oct 21. -Bradstreet's
Though trade trends show little
definite change, it probably is true
that retail business in the larger
cities has expanded with cooler
weather and the advance of the sea-
son. Yet this improvement is by no
means uniform, too much rain in the
northwest and along the Atlantic
seaboard hampering shopping, while
low cotton prices have affected south-
ern trade collections. Incidentally J
the country districts as a whole show-
that retail business in this respect
is rather slow. Returns as to job-
bing and wholesale lines tell of a
reasonable degree of activity in dry
goods, furniture, shops and the lint, j
but it is claimed that interior distri-
butors continue to buy on a hand to
mouth basis, though most purchasers
call for immediate shipment. Cotton
goods are still being gradually re-
duced in keeping as it were, with the
declines in raw cotton and this situa-
tion tends to render buyers cautious
because lacking confidence in the
stability of prices.

OKLAHOMA CITY'S MAYOR
DEMURS TO PETITION.
Oklahoma City, Oct. 21,- A de-
murrer to the petition filed by Wil-

and others was docketed with the
clerk of the district court yesterday.
The action brought by Ribble was for
the removal of the present city com-
missioners from office, on the ground
that the charter under which they
were elected was never properly
adopted. The three grounds set up
by the defendants are that the facts
set out are not sufficient to consti-
tute a cause of action, that the plain-
I tiff has no legal capacity to sue, and
