'Those Wanting Free Seed Write
lo Senator Owens.
What they are Doing at thfj
Mr. Cope introduced a bill pro-
viding for the removal of ti e
state capital to the Ft. Reno mil-
Passage 6ft the Williams house
bill amending the depositors'
guaranty law, characterized the
principal feature of Tuesday's
senate session. The bill provides
that banks shall not pay more
than 3 per cent interest on de-
posits and shall not loan more
thac 20 per cent of their deposits
on real estate. It also eliminates
any reference to the currency in
stipulating the terms by which a
national bank can secure protec-
tion of the guaranty law.
The first partial report of the
general appropriations committee
of the house, which was submit-
ed by Chairman Whitehurst,
recorrifcnds a total appropriation
for salaries of part of the state
officers an 1 their assistance cler-
ical help .iid contingent expenses
of $358,037.50 running from Nov.
16, 1907, to June 30, 1909. Of
this amount the corporation com-
mission gets the largest share, a
total of $84,325 being recomend-
■ed. Twenty-one district judges
are provided for at a salary of
Representative Putman pro-
duced a storm of applause in tne
h >use when he introduced a res-
olution asking that the legislat-
ure and administration offices of
the capital be moved to Oklaho-
ma City. It is based upon the
fact that the quarters for the
legislature and state officers are
in many respects inadequate and
inconveniently located, that the
health of many members of the
legislature has been endangered
b.\ poor ventilation and unsani-
tary conditions and that Oklaho-
ma City will furnish sufficient,
superior and more convenient
quarters without cost until a per-
manent capital is selected.
Owing to neither party being
prepared, the hearing of ihe
€i mplaints of the proposed order

John Le Cr inge has lately in-
stalled an ensilage cutter for
•utting all ,,inds nf fodder and
hay. Since wheat has been a
failure he c ■uld not get straw
for mulching purposes and he
deci e ; 1 a iie must have some-
thing tase the place of it and
concluded that corn stocks would
fill the bill, if cut up fine enough.
Since installing the cutter, he
has decided that even weids
-uclt as sunflowers and horse
weed wo J<l be excellent for the
purpose, and has been cutting
them and spreading them with a
manure snreader. Eveything
connected with the outfit works
line and he feels that as long as
1 he farmers around lnm continue
to grow weeds, he has Ihe
mulching problem solved. The
machine is of large capacity
cutting as higl'i as five to six ions
per hour. Now it may be that
weeds will get in demand after
all if some of our energetic peo-
ple will get to making use of
them. Truly '"Nothing was
made in vain."
