The first rails on the Military ad-
dition extension were laid Saturday
forenoon on Main street between I
Broadway and the Santa Fe railroad '
The track being laid is the standard |

TALK ABOUT DIVIDING TEXAS.
The sectional line has be* n brought
into the prohibition contest in Texas
and there are some threats of a di-
vision of the state on that account.
In the recent vote prohibition was
d*f*-ated by about 5.000. Tbe pro-
hibitionists carried the northern por-
tion of the stat > by a large major-
ity, but the local optiou and license
people won a longer lead in the
southern section. A cry of fraud has
been raised by the drys" and an-
other contest is likely to come soon,
especially as the "drys" are in a
large majority in the legislature.
Just at present there is a revulsion
of ffeling against prohibition in the
south which is of some consequence,
in view of tbe triumphs which that
sentiment won in that section in re-
In the meantime one of the Houston
papers, which is opposed to prohibi-
tion. says that if that policy had won
th«* other day a feeling would be
aroused among the people of south-
ern T^xas that they "had been politi-
cally subjugated and held iu political
bondage by distant power," the "dis-
tant power" In this case *meaning the
northern end of the state, and that
would have incited "among south
Texas people a sentiment for au-
tonomy." Probably this threat wiil
not alarm the north Texans. yet it
needs to betaken into calculation
by the people of the whole state.
Threats of division have been mad.-
several times, on many issues and
with many lines of demarcation.
This Is due to the clrcumstance
that the state is so large that the
the interests of some of the locali-
ties in it vary from those of the
In the joint resolution passed by
congress in 184" under which the
republic of Texas was annexed and
admitted to statehood, provision was
made that the region could divide
itself into four additional states, if
the people of Texas and the con-
gress of the United States permitted.
In th - days Just previous to the re-
bellion there was some talk of tak-
ing advantage of this permission, so
as to increase the slavery vote in
the senate, but the matter was never
beyond the talking stage. In area
Texas is much larger than the Ger-
man empire or the French republic.
It has more than five times the di
society wakes up and says it is an
Dishonored at 13, a mother at 17.
this girl sums it all up when she
says "I never had a chance, that's
A chance for a child means a
real home. Go through the hovels
and tenements of a city and see the
chances of a home that hundreds
and thousands of irresponsible girls
of 13 years and less have not, nor
•an hope of ever having.
This girl at Richmond had no
hance. Was she vile at 13? Isn't
if awful to see her sitting in jail
■hatting pleasantly about It's being
no use trying to be good, or trying
get work, or hoping for anyone
to relive h«*r of her disgrace, when
know that what she says is to a
very great extent true?
And. while we are getting much
tlrred up about this case, why not
look around and see if there are not
other girls right near us, who are
getting no chance?
THE BOND HABIT.
Municipal bonds are a necessity for
any growing, ambitious community.
Necessity aws tbe mother of the
bond idea, which is another phase
of the installment purchase plan.
•ommunlty desire* certain im-
provements. It nasn't the cash to
pay outright. As the improvements
will be enduring, the work is done
and the cit yobligates itaelf to pay
over a long term of years, a portion
of the burden falling on those as
yet unborn, for the very excellent
reason that they will reap where we
havi> sowed, and should pay at least
portion of the cost.
We say the bond habit is a neces-
sity. But. it is also, a most danger-
ous habit. There are several rea-
sons why this is o. Because bonds
an be voted, it does not follow that
they should be that it is good bus-
iness judgment to do so. We can
buy anything from an automobile
down to a dining chair on the in-
stallment purchase plan. But if one
makes any purchases iu this manner
other than are aboslutely necessary,
and that can be made in no other
manner, then one is no? using good

THK GIRI. WITH NO CHANCE.
A Klrl of 17 years of a(e Kit* on
a table In the Richmond Jail, swing-
ing her crosed feet, smiling and phl-
losophliing on life. She is held as a
witness iu the case of tbe State vs
Beattle, Heattie being suspected ol
killing his wife in order to engag*
in freer relations with this girl, who
is Ueulah Hinton!. Heulah was
mother but not a wife at 15. She
sums it up thus:
"I began to be bad when I was
only 13. Nobody pushed me down.
I never had a chance, that's all. My
mother couldn't give me the train-
ing I ought to have had. Oh. what's
the uae trying to be good. I've tried
but it's no go. I get a place some-
where but soon up go the eye brows
and I'm turned out on the street
again I didn't expert Heuttle to
disgrace himself by marrying me.
I'm not blaming anybody."
Heulah's case Is remarkable only
in that it has come to light. There
are hundreds of similar cases In
every city but they get public atten-
tion only when the tragedy that is
always In them spells murder. Then
approval of even a necessary bond
The World believes that with ev-
ery proposal to vote bonds, there
should be given to the public a de-
tailed statement of the financial con-
dition of the city, In a simple, under-
standable form. Such a statement
could best be had from the hanjls
of an auditing company, after t
careful examination of all city ac-
counts and funds.
It Isn't the law, to be sure. Hut
It sould be. Voting bonds In the

able hamblt. Tulsa World.

ban Railway company, with the ob-
ject of building an interurban liTTfr
from Oklahoma City to Shawnee and
Tecumseh with a branch line to
Chandler. The company is capital-
iied at *3,000,000. The lines it will
build will approximate 100 miles in
length. Construction work will be
started within the next few months.
U E. Patterson is president of
the company. The line will be af-
filiated with the Oklahoma City
Traction company, of which be is
also president, and which lines are
commonly known as the Patterson
Hues. His associates in both lines
are eastern capitalists. The work
of condemning right of way will be
started as soon as the new company
Is fully organized and in working or-
The route for the line has not
been surveyed, but it will parallel
the Hock Island, the Katy or the
new line of the Missobri. Oklahoma
and Oulf line from hereto Shawnee.
Then tbe Chandler extension will be
made from one of the towns be-
tween. the two terminals of the
line, but this point has not been se-
lected. According to Mr. Patterson,
these routes depend a great deal on
what the different rowns along the
possible routes will do In tbe way
of concessions in providing a right
of way and the like.
The operation of the line will be
by electricity, but the company in
Its articles of incorporation reserves
the right to operate by steam if nec-
essary. It also reserves the right
to operate a steam railway and to
maintain telegraph and telephone
sysetms. also electric power planus
In the different towns through which
it may operate. Tbe business of a
street railway in ail the cities and
towns through which it passeB or
with which it connects is one of the
powers of the company. The head-
quarters of the company will be
maintained In Oklahoma City, but
branch offices may be located In St.
Louis or New York city if the com-
pany so desires.
The estimated cost of the con-
struction ot the line is the same as
the capital slock, $3,000,tK(U, and Che
company will have live directors,
who under the linal organization
will be composed mostly of eastern
men whose names Mr. Patterson
not yet reutly to give out. The capi-

I De condemnation proceedings
In connection with the securing of ii
right of way will be started within
a short time,'' said Mr. Patterson
Saturday evening. "Then construc-
tion work will be started within the
next few mouths, but I am not cer-

will be made, nor whe.i the line will

"The route of the line will paral
lei one of the two railroads now 1tj
operation between Oklahoma City
and Shawnee, or the new route of
the Missouri, Oklahoma and Oulf
railroad, but the chulce depends on
what the citizens of the towns along
the way will do In assisting in fhe
(instruction of the interurban."
In Qklahoma City the Hue will
connect with the new Military addi-
tion extension of the Patterson lines
now under construction. This will
give it a terminal iu the heart of
Oklahoma City, as that line will op-
erate cars on Broadway between
Main street and Grand avenue, and
will own its own tracks as far west
as Broadway on both Main street
and Grand avenue. It also will hav
suitable connections with all rail-
road terminals now in Oklahoma
