Oklahoma City, March 3.—For the
second time during the session, the
house of representatives Thursday
refused to enact into law Gov.
Grace's chief idea of prohibition en-
forcement. Hy a vote of 54 to 43
the house rejected the conference re-
port on the Thompson. Webb and An
thony prohibition enforcement bill,
and asked for another conference.
The bill in question is the proposed
prohibition enforcement law that or-
iginated in the house. It was passed
there after the provision giving the
governor power to suspend county
officers falling to enforce the pro
hibltory law had been stricken out.
The senate reinserted the "governor's
section," after reversing itself once
or twice on the matter. The bill
then wont to conference; the con-
ference committee reported to the
house Thursday, recommending that
the house agree to the senate's re-
insertion of the governor's section,
and this the house refused to do.
The bill, of course, contains much
more matter than this section rela-
tive to suspension of county officers,
but that is the most important thing
in the bill and is what Gov. Cruce
is tightiug for.
The debate was short. Speaker Pro
Tem Williams of Comanche endorsed
the work of the conference commit-
and recommended that the bill
pass as reported out by it. Maxey
attacked the conference committee
report, which he had refused to sign,
in another powerful speech, and when
he had concluded, the previous ques-
tion was sustained and the roll
Williams said that the bill now is
not what a rank prohibitionist would
pass, nor what a Son of Washing-
ton would altogether like. It is, how-
ever, he said, a good compromise be-
tween these two extremes and about
the best prohibition enforcement law
that could be passed He called the
attention of the house to the fact
that the end of the session is near
and that In ail probability no pro-
hibition enforcement legislation would
be enacted if the house did not ac-
pt the report.
Attack on Bill.
Maxey, attacking the bill, said that
he had refused to gign the confer-
ence committee report chiefly on ac-
count of the much debated provision
relative to power of the governor to
suspend county officers. As re-
enacted by the senate, he said it was
worse than when killed by the house
on first passage. The idea of giving
the governor such power he con-
demned as foreign to the spirit of
American people. The courts were
to exercise the judicial powers, he
"Can't we trust our district
judges?" he asked. "Who would think
of giving the governor power to try
murder cases? No one. Our dis-
trict courts are to do that, and we
would not think of disturbing such
an arrangement. Is a man's life of
less importance than a bottle of beer,
that we should give the governor
power to intervene in the case of the
latter, but not the former. Are we
going to say that we cannot repose
confidence in our attorney-general?"
Maxey continued, telling of the
Pottawatomie scandals, when even as
high an official as District Judge Ma-
ben was suspended Dy the courts,
also a county attorney and a county
commisisoner, to prove his points
that the judiciary was well able to
handle the prohibitory laws.
Speaker Pro Tem' Williams inter-
rupted Maxey to say that Gov. Cruce
was insisting on such a provision in
Maxey retorted that that was why
the senate had put the section back
in, "because it was scared by Just
such a suggestion as this by Mr.
"We ought not to stand here and
vote for what we kuow to be wrong
just because the governor happens
to have made a hobby of prohibitory
enforcement and is iusisting. if he is
Insisting, that we put his ideas into
law," said Maxey. "That would be
wrong. We were sent here, I be-
lieve, to ute our own Judgment."
The previous question was then
moved and sustained, despite the ob-
jection of Mr. Webb, one of the au-
thors of the bill, who wanted to
speak on the matter.

For You to Pay Over a Cent an Ounce
for ANY Baking Powder!
Any baking powder can be sold with profit at 1 cent an ounce. If you
are paying more you are feeding a Trust. If you pay less you run the risk
of inferior quality. No baking powder can be made in any particular better
than Health Club. More could be charged, but we are content with a fair
profit. "Health Club" sells for 1 cent an ounce, about one-third what the
Trust powders cost. Don't pay 25, 40 or 50 cents a pound for baking
powders when they are no better than Health Club at 1 cent an ounce. Madam, you can get
better results at half the price with Health Club than any other powder you have been using.
9 Twenty thousand women in Oklahoma—your own neighbors—will tell you these facts.
OUR OVEN TESTS
II you could see the Hght fluffy biscuits with their golden brown crust that we make in testing every
lot of Health Club Baking Powder mixed—you would be jealous
of our baking. The secret is in the powder—and every ounce is
the same. To be sure of this we use the famous Layton oven
test. Each ingredient is tested by an expert before and after
being mixed. These two tests guarantee to you the uniformly
perfect quality of Health Club Baking Powder. Try Health
Club today and you will have the finest biscuits you ever
baked and the powder costs you less. Won't you please
try Health Club in your next baking? . (i8>

Oklahoma City, March 3. Corpora-
tion Commissioners A. P. Watson, J.
K. Love and G. A. Henshaw are busy
preparing a list of witnesses to be
summoned for the hearing to deter-
mine the original cost of all railroads
in Oklahoma. The hearings prob-
ably will be held about the middle
of March, although no definite date
has been set by the commission.

city are asserting that an erroneous
impression has l^een spread broadcast

the commission. These attorneys and
clerical experts declare that such is
not the case, but insist in the state-
ments that the railroads will do all
within their power to aid the com-
"I cannot speak for all of the
roads," said R. A. Kleinschmidt, gen-
eral counsel for the Frisco, Thurs-
day, "but I know that the Frisco
Railroad has always furnished the
commission with information when-
ever desired, and that we have done
all within our power to furnish the
commission with data in this case.
One thing is certain, the railroads
cannot furnish what they have not
in their possession."
Mr. Kleinschmidt is substantiated
in his statements by practically ev-
ery railroad attorney in the city.
They believe the proposed under-
taking of the commission is unrea-
sonable in that it does not seem to
(be a possibility. Several prominent
railroad officials will be cited for the
hearing to come.
Commissioner Watson stated Thurs-
day that the proceedings will be
along a little different line than be-
fore, and that an attempt will be
made to secure the cost units at the
time the road was built. In this
manner a general Idea of the track
cost can be obtained, if not the actual
cost at the time. In attempting to
ascertain the original cost of all rail-
roads in the state, the commission is
proceeding under a provision of the
constitution, which insists that such
must be done.

Arnansas City, Kan., March 3.—J.
W. Howell, B. Smith and D. T. Allen
came in from Texas, and are holding
a conference here with G. G. Hen-
derson, resident engineer of the Mid-

tracts with that company for the
first 10 miles of road out of this

date. They will have charge of the
construction of the roadbed and will

da Springs, and a little later on con-
tractors will begin work all along
the line, as far as Wichita.
