OKLAHOMA CITY, OJila., Jan. 13 —
The first explosion in connection with
the failure of Oklahoma City to carry
out its promises to pay the expense of
removing the state offices came this af-
ternoon when the house adopted a res-
olution introduced by RepresentatiAo
Charles F Barrett of Shawnee, calling
upon tiie executive department to furnish
to the legislature all contracts made be-
tween Governor Haskell and citizens of
oklahoma City In regard to the matter
Te resolution recites that the state
board of public affairs is being impor-
tuned b.v draymen, railroad agents, la-
borers and others who assisted in the
removal, all wanting their money; that
• lie hoard has no money in its posse.*-
sion to pay such claims and that tho
legislature desires information as to
where it may be obtained.
The resolution was adopted without
opposition, the only discussion being in
connection with an amendment by Cor-
nell. eliminating all references by Cor-
pledges made bv Haskell to the Demo-
cratic caucus •which was adopted.
If this resolution does not Jiave the de-
sired result even more sensational devel-
opments ere promised.
The house passed finally the appro-
priation bills for '.is own salary and a
bill by Searcy amending the criminal
procedure so as to make the petit jury
panel thirty-six instead of twenty-four.
A house hill introduced by Pelbly of

It Is said that an Investigation of tlie
contracts ma.le for the so called "Free
Capital'*' the $71,200 and all other agree-
ments. will demonstrate that they are
not worth the paper written on and that
the people here who. engineered the deal
are doing all the smiling.
Members of the legislature are ex-
pected to "side «tep" an investigation as
they do not wish to be called "suckers"
and will let time and silence obtain and
hope ti o people of the state will forget
tho promises and so called contracts.
Representative Barretts action caused
much surprise and an effort will be madi
to suptess him in the future against
such public action.
COUNTY DIVISION CASE
MUSH HEN MILS DUTY
EGG FAMINE IS fcURE
Prices Expected to Reach Point
Above All Past Records—
Feared All Europe Must Look
LONDON. Jan. 13.—Notwithstanding;
the expectations of England, her hens
have failed to do their duty. and. there-
fore she is face to face with an egg fam-
ine. Prices are expected very soon to
reach a figure hitherto unparallelled.
The Englsh hen, nowever, Is not en-
entlrely to blame for this state of af-
fairs, for it appears, according to a re-
port by Edward Brown, secretary of the
National Poultry Society, who has just
returned from a trip through Germany,
that the product of the allen ben is be-
ing consumed more largely at home end
this has led to a tremendous decrease in
the number of eggs exported from coun-
tries to this.
"I found." said Mr. Brown, "that the
egg is entering more large'y into the
every-day food of the German owing to
the increase in meat prices. Last year
we received 200.000,000 fewer eggs than
In 1908, at the same time paying $200,000
more for them.
"Since 1907 the Italian egg supply to
England has diminished by one-half, as
have also the egg Imports to this coun-
try from Austria and Hungary.
"France is In the same boat, the sum
of 000,000. our average annual epg
tribute to her, having declined last year,
to $.'5,000,000. it is only a question of
time when Germany will absorb th egg
supplies from counries touching her bor-
der which have hitherto sent their prod-
uct to us, Unless there is a great egg
development in the United Kingdom an
alarming shortage Is inevitable."
So it will be seen that If the English
remains unpatriotic the price of
which has Increased 20 per cent
since 1900. will approach the figure paid
by Americans where It Is understood
here, the output of eggs Is controlled
by the meat trust.

OKLAHOMA CITY. Jn. 13. —What is
believed to be the largest appropriation
bill ever introduced in the Oklahoma leg-
islature was presented in the lower house
Friday afternoon by Representative R.
L. Peebly of Oklahoma county.
It rails for the expenditure of $'2,500,000
of the public building funds of the state
for the construction of district school
The measure provides that whenever
a district contains the required 2f square
miles of territory shall he formed and a
School house constructed in It, the state
auditor shall draw a warrant in favor
of the treasurer of the district for half
tho cost f the building, not, however
an amount exceeding: $L',.r 00. This amount
appropriated would be sufficient to give
$2,500 each to 1,000 school districts.
Thl sbill in Its nature Is a response
to the clause of the message of Governor
Cruce calling for general state mainte-
nance of public schools.

I have been busy
Ing straw and sprer
he past week haul-
lin* the Fame over
my strawberry beds. This is a job that
I have always advocated should be done
as early as possible In November. This
season I barely made a beginning before
the month was gone There have been
good reasons, however, for this delay—
chief of which is the delay of cold weath-
er su clent to form a crust of frozen
earth. In commercial work with the
strawberry the grower finds to his ad-
vantage to wait until the ground freer.es
hard enough to hear up a loaded wagon,
so that be may drive over his beds with-
out injuring the crowns of the plants.
It Is true that where the rows of plants
aro properly spaced ancl restricted to
narrow wldtiia the team and wagou may
be made to straddle u row without special
injury .o tho plants. It may be best in
fact to allow for some Injury to the plants
on the part of the team and wagon rath-
er than delay the covering much beyond
the usual time. We have had a nice apeli
of fall weather for strawberry plants this
season, so that they have been making
time until very late In perfecting their
root growth and ripening up their crowns
which contain the fruit buds for next
season's crop. With this favorable weath-
er for perfecting the growth the next
thing is to consider the protection of
these well matured plants through the
winter. Tests made by a large straw-
berry grower in Michigan for several
years i>ast show i at ;ie early covering
of the beds produces the best results. Tiie
time will have to be determined by trie
latitude and season, but in general we
may fix the time by the coming of tho
frosty nights, as soon as the growing
season is closed then the plants may be
considered as ready for their winter cov-
ering. The owncrr of small beds can us-
ually find both time ami material where-
with to perform this work in good sea-
son. The larger growers with other lines
of work to carry, are quite apt to defer
the strawberry covering until the sea-
son is closed for other garden work.
There Is a difference of opinion among
strawberry grower* as to the best ma-
terial for use in covering the plants. One
need not be particularly choice, however,
ii the selection of the material since the
important thing Is the fact performed
rather than tho manner. One must us*
adoptlo.i to his particular location and
environments aiso In determining the
kind. The growers living within
