Among the important business trans-
acted at the meeting of the Eagles' aerie
last night was the appointment of dele-
gates to attend the territorial meeting to

The Chandler convention, as has before
been stated iu Thk News, is for the pur-
pose of sending a delegation from the
Oklahoma aeries to the national conven-
tion, which meets in Denver Aug. 9 for
the purpose of selecting a location for
the proposed new National Eagles'
The amount set apart for the establish-
ment and equipment of this great benev-
olent institution, which 011 completion
will become a home indeed for the un-
fortunate and infirm members of the Fra-
ternal Order of Eagles is f 400,000—a sum
never betore expended for a similar pur-
pose in the United States.
The first and all subsequent agitation
looking to tile establishment of the Home
has revealed the fact that its location
will be sought for in the west, and the
contest is very likely to narrow down to
one between Colorado and Oklahoma.
'1 aken altogether no state or territorial
division of the great south and middle
west offers so great inducements for the
location of the Home, and especially its
desirable mild climate and general
healthfulness as Oklahoma, and these
are things that will very largely be taken
That these conventions are of very
great importance can very readily be
seen, for, if the Home location is given
Oklahoma, then Shawnee, which non
has an aerie membership of over 400,
will become a candidate for the definite
location of its site, and, therefore, the ac-
tion of the local aerie last night was most
timely, to the end that a good start in the
important matter be made at once.

THE EDITORS ARE
HAVING FINE TIME
(.uthrie, Ok., June 9.—Because of the
delay in the arrival of the special Katy
trains bringing the eastern and northern
delegate^, much of the program as sched-
uled for Wednesday afternoon was post-
poned. During Thursday morning's ses-
sion at the Brookes opera house the ad-
dresses of Miss Virginia Clay, of Alaba-
ma, Hon. John Dymond, of Louisiana,
and the annual address of President VV.
W. Screws, of Alabama, were delivered
to a big crowd. The entire program, as
nearly as possible will be parried out.
Both Inpianapolis, Ind., and Ashville,
N. C.,*are candidates for the convention
in 1906, and the delegates from both
these states are putting in hard and fre
quent licks. Asbury Park, N. J , and I
Pasadena, Cal., are also in the race and |
making an active canvass.
In all probability Col. John Dymond,
of Louisiana, will be elected president.
Kansas and other northern delegations
have arrayed tliemsalves under the Dy-
mond standard and to defeat him now
The ladies of the city gave an elabo-
rate reception Thursday afternoon at the
residence of William A. Eraser, for the
wives and daughters of visiting editors.
There are several hundred visiting ladies
here. The reception was informal, but
highly enjoyable. Another social event
was thefreception and entertainment ac-
corded all visitors at night at the Mason-
ic Temple, the Scottish Rite of the two
territories as hosts. This morning the
visitorsjwere taken 011 a street car ride of
the entire city. All the railroad mag
nates are here and accompanied the ed
itors over the city.
Today's sessions, while largely devoted
to business, have been also filled with
pleasure, as several receptions and rides
have been given the visitors. The elec.
tion of officers is on this afternoon anil
also the next place of meeting. The ed-
itors will leave Guthrie at 6:30 for a two
days' trip through the territories, return
ing here Sunday morning and going to

lUrsday the statehood situation with re-1
gaid to Oklahoma and the Indian Terri- '
tory. The president has become deeply
interested in the subject and will co-
operate with the congressional influences
which seek to make one state out of the
twin territories. The only complications
which now seem probable are those
which may arise through the possible ef-
fort of the house organization to force
the Hamilton bill through early in the
session. The first contest will come
when the attempt is made to consider
statehood for New Mexico and Arizona
at .the same time with Oklahoma aud In-
dian Territory. Speaker Cannon wants
the whole subject of statehood disposed
of at the same time and the majority of
the senate committee is similarly

A man who is recognized as eminently
successful in business has hanging over
his desk a little motto which says:
'"Do the hard thing first."
"I came across that motto years ago," he saye,
"at a pivotal time in my life. I suddenly realized
that I had been in the habit of putting off the dis-
agreeable duties, of evading the unpleasant tasks,
•and they had formed a ghost which haunted me and
held me back. I tacked up that motto and settled
down to work on the disagreeable duties I had pushed
aside; soon I had them out of the way, and ever
afterward I attempted the hardest thing[firet. I gave
my freshest efforts to the wcik I dreaded most, and

is not unfavorable to peace. In his re-
cent audience with Mr. Meyer the Atner.

willingness to take under advisement th«
subject of peace an,l expressed a warn,
appreciation of the friendly words of
Mr. Meyer, speaking as the personal en
voy of the president. The reception of
Mr. Meyer was characterized by the
most cordiality and friendliness, and the
ambassador's cablegram to the president
giving a general account of the audien

Meyer did not bring to the St. l'eter-

but a "friendly offer of good will," „s it
was described by Count Cassini, which
apparently was gratifying to the czar
Further than this it is impossible to

Mr Takahira, the Japanese minister,
called by appointment at the White
House thuafternoon and spent half an
hour with the president. He was still
unable to give the slightest indication re-
garding Japan's peace terms, but it is be-
lieved he was acquainted in a general
way with the hopeful tone of Mr. Meyer's
dispatch and with this it is expected will
meet the president half way in the earn
est efforts he is making to assist in bring-
ing about an early peace.
Early in the afternoon Baron Kaneko
the Japanese financial advisor, was re-
ceived by the president and discussed
the whole situation for some time.
Baron Kaneko tonight said that Japan
had not received, directly or indirectlv
any request from Russia for a statement
Of peace terms. It wa< intimated that
Japan would be loath to give any such
statement until convinced that Russia
was prepared to take up the question

The finest building stone in the whole
country has just been brought to view
and fully tested, from a ledge found 4,,
Miles southeast of Shawnee. It is the
famous oolite limestone, the government
standard and the stone from which the
great churches, capitals ami other im-
mense buildings of the world are builded.
This stone has just been fully tested by
skilled workmen, by the U. S, Geologi-
cal Survey, the Norman, Okla., Univer-
sity and by various other tests aud uni-
versally pronounced to excell the famed
Medford, Indiana, oolite.
The- value of this find can the better be
understood when it is known that the
Bedford stone is worth |t per cubic foot
on the Oklahoma market and that there
are billions of cubic feet in this newly
I nderlying the ledge of limestone and
adjacent thereto, is an immense bed of
clay from which the finest of vitrified
brick have just been made.
From this atone, lime (the stone car-
rying99 per cent of lime), can be burned
which mixed with clay in the proportion
of 60 per cent of lime to 40 per cent of
clay the best of hydraulic cement can be
The development of this great find
means much, uot only to t is immediate
vicinity, but to the whole southwest.
As we record one after another of the
great resources of this great field, Indian
and Oklahoma Territories, we wonder
what will next dome to view. Easy will
it be to outstrip the eastern states in the
statehood days yet to come. No better
field for investment can anywhere be
found than here.
Thi* find has been pronounced by Prof.
Gould, of the Oklahoma University, at
