Spread at the Norwood Preceded the
Business Session and Toasts
During Wednesday afternoon and
evening about thirty of the hardware
dealers of this county gathered in
Shawnee for a session to discuss vari-
ous matters. The washouts to the
south and east prevented several of
the retail hardware men in that sec-
tion from being present.
The object of the meeting was
to interest all the dealers of the coun-
ty in the Oklahoma Retail Hard
Dealers' association which wa;
cently formed at Oklahoma Citj by
a merging of the association of the
D. C. Patterson, secretary of the
state organization, was present at the
meeting last night and lent valuable
aid in the work of organization. Har-
ry Mead of this city is vice president
of the state organization.
The state organization is very anx-
ious to secure the membership and

The neighbors say that the light of
day is considered profane and that it
is after night that the chief part of the j ——
disturbances proceeds from the camp New york) Aug 9_Samuel Bierley
of Sharp. The complaint also states * meggengeri who_ wlthollt
that the moral side of the encamp
co-operation of every dealer in the
new state as proper organization is
necessary to safeguard the interests
of the dealers. Principal among these
is the matter of adequate legislaton
necessary to protect the legitimate
dealers who pay taxes and help sup-
port our public institutions from the
encroachments of the itinerant range
peddler and buggy trailer, and people
of their ilk who travel about the
country hawking their wares. Anoth-
er feature which is being strongly
urged now is the organization of a
mutual insurance company within the
association. In the states where the
dealers have been organized for a
longer period of time, successful in-
s" ;3nce departments are maintained,
and at the recent territorial meeting
at Oklahoma City a special committee
of which Mr. Mead of this city and S.
P. Larsh. of Tecumseh, are members,
was appointed to attend to the details
of instituting an insurance depart-
ment in the Oklahoma association.
Before the business session, the
visitors were entertained at a sump-
tuous banquet at the Norwood, as
guests of the local hardware men.
Henry Aronstein acted as toastmaster
in a very aceptable manner, and some
excellent toasts were responded to.

Oklahoma City, Aug. 9.—A peace-
able lawabiding citizen by the name
of Thomas Owens came to the office
of Sherriff Garrison yesterday and en-
tered a complaint against the en-
campment of "Holy Rollers," sitnated
about seven miles southeast of Okla-
homa City, charging them with a gross
disturbance of the peace and of tres-
passing heavily on the dignity of Okla-
The complaint names John Sharp,
Jack Pratt, Lewis Pratt and Homer
Comer as the principal offenders with
the entire colony included as assis-
tants in the enterprise of causing pan
demonium to reign supreme in the
community thereby robbing Morpheus
of his sacred duties of imposing slum-
ber. They state that they would not
object to the presence of the religious
vineyard if they would confine their
orgies to the day time but they think
that the laws of Christianity do not
require a service all night long es-
pecially when accompanied by such
hideous noises as those that proceed
from this place.
The complaint also' states that they
do not confine their practices to the
confines of the camp but that they go
out ot the public highways and inform
passers by that the aforesaid Sharp is
in reality God Almighty and that if
they do not do obeisi-nce to him as an
omnipotent being that they will im-
mediately be consigned to the realms
Several citizens who have been ac-
costed by the faithful followers of
Sharp's band have made replies equiv-
alent to directing the "Holy Rollers"
to the place mentioned and they have
beem. threatened, with all the wrath that
the supreme being John Sharp can
visit on their inl'idel heads.
It is said that no one can pass the
region held by the band of Sharp et
al without having to undergo the cer-
emony of being told that he is an
unbeliever and a sinner.
The complainant states that instead
of getting better the conditions are
getting worse and each day experi-

New York, Aug. 9.—A startling dec-
laration was made today that a girl's
Joke caused the passion which led
Harry Thaw to murder Stanford
White. The district attorney is in
possession of evidence that White
sent basket of flowers to Mrs. Thaw,
with a note on the afternoon of the
shooting and that the tradegy grew
out of this.
A chorus girl Is responsible for the
sending of the flowers. This fact
was communicated to the district at-
torney today by Florez Seigfeld, hus-
band of Ana Held, who is now in
Paris. This girl is now in New York
and will testify. She says that she
and two or three others went to
White's studio to pay him a farewell
visit. White was not there and an
attendant asked them to leave their
names. "Oh," said one of them,"
"you need only say that Mrs. Thaw
called." The girl says that the next
day White sent the flowers and a note
to Mrs. Thaw and expressed regret
at his absence. The girl believes
that Thaw saw the flowers and note,
and that the tradegy was the result.

CASE NOT TRIED
At Oklahoma City yesterday when
Judge Burwell called the matter of
the request of Mrs. Evelyn Blakeney
that the court modify its order and
appoint some other guardian than J.
O. Blakeney, imediately presented
a petition, drawn by himself, Judge
Pitman and Judge Pendleton, asking
for a change of judge. After argu-
ment on both sides, Judge Burwell
granted the request. The opposite
side presented a motion asking that
J. O. Blakney be permitted to take
the child to Colorado with his family
for the summer, but the court de-
cided that, as a new judge had been
asked, he could not pas on the mo-
tion. Judge Garber will hear the
case, probably tomorrow.

Copenhagen, Aug. 9.—A legalized '
slaughter of Finnish women is prom-'
ised if the troops on guard there car-
ry out their orders given to them by
the Russian governor general yester-
day. Ho issued a proclamation ad-
dressed to commanding officers of the
troops, Instructing them that all per-
sons engaged in advocating and
spreading the revolutionary propa-
ganda must be shot without regard
for age or sex.
Inasmuch as for the past week the
loyal Finnish women have dressed
themselves in garments of flaming
red and paraded the streets, stopping
passers-by and forcing their way into
factories and shops, it Is manifestly
evident that the order of the gover-
nor general is directed against them.
The order followed the stabbing of
the captain of a Cossack troop, who
attempted to arrest three women who
were addressing a crowd of working
men in the market square of a Fin-
nish town. As the trooper placed his
hand upon the arm of one them she
turned and dr?a dagger that she

rences have been received during the

All Finland Is seething with re-
volt and practically the entire popu-
lace are ready to sacrifice lives and
property to deal blows at their mili-
tary oppressors. The Russian au-
thorities realize this and are strength-
ening the garrisons of all Finnish
towns. Half a dozen attempts on the
lives of Russians have occurred re-
cently, but none succeeded.

Traffic on the railroads is in bet-
ter condition than It has been for
several days past. Trains on the
Rock Island are enabled to pass clear
through to the east!, the washouts
having been temporarily repaired.
The Katy, however, Is not yet able
to pass farther east than Maud, but
as a large force of men are at work
repairing the road, it is thought that
it will not be many hours until trains
will be running east over that road.
All trains are running late on account
of the bad condition of the road beds.
The Santa Fe is now running trains
clear through and several trains off
the main line were run to the south
over this division last night and to-
day. Indication point to a complete
resumption of traffic on all three roads
within 24 hours.
