OPPOSITE CITY HALL
TO pi OFFICE
Oklahoma City, Aug. 15.—That be
will not resign, even at the request
of Gov. Cruce, was the statement
made to friends Monday evening by
W. E. McLamore, state enforcement
officer, whose reeignation was re-
quested by the governor following a
bearing of charges preferred against
nini by members of the Civic league
of' Oklahoma City. McLamore de-
clared that he will force Gov. Cruce
to eject him from office.
Following a public hearing of the
B charges brought against McLamore,
■ *tk>v. Cruce expressed his confidence
■ in McLamore's integrity and exon-
I erated him from any charge of in-
m tentional wrongdoing, but expressed
■ the belief that he had been exceed-
■ ingly indiscreet, and asked for his
R resignation on the ground that he
■ had lost the confidence of the pro-
M hibition people of the state and had
' destroyed his usefulness as an en-
Jhtforcement officer by reason of that
f The hearing was of an informal
"character, Gov. Cruce having decided
that in a hearing of this sort no one
was authorized to administer oaths.
He announced that he had looked (in-
to the matter, when a request was,
made by Momau Pruiett, attorney for
McLamore. that the witnesses be
placed under oath, and that the same
condition would apply to the hearing
to be commenced on Thursday of this
week in regard to the charges
against members of the state board
Ail of the statements made were
with regard to the raid made on the
so-called Clopton roadhouse on the
night of Aug. 3, when McLamore was
found In the house. C. A. Tappan, J.
W. Mann, J. C. Gilmore and one
Quartos, who were members of the
raiding party, told their stories, and
McLamore told his, the statements of
the two sides being in harmony ex-
cept in minor details. Tappan told
of seeing McLamore through the win-
dow, apparently sitting at a table
with two women, and Gilmore stated
that he had seen him standing be-
side the table, while ^>ne of the
women helped him put on his coat
and the other handed him his gun
Tappan and Mann both told of ask-
iife Mrs. Clopton for the keys to a
locked room, where they believed
liquor was stored, and of her state-
ments that McLamore had the keys;
that he said he had already searched
the place and found only a few bot-
tles of beer, and that when they in-
sisted on seeing the room he got the
keys from the Clopton woman and
ttujy entered the room, where some
15 or 16 bottles of beer were found
McLamore claimed there were only
eight or nine.
- Mann also told of another raid
Sunday night, when beer was pur-
chased and a large number of men
and women found in the place, and
stated that when the raiding party
entered the Clopton woman was talk-
ing over the telephone to someone,
whom he supposed to be McLamore,
telling him that he was being jobbed
and that she had talked to Gov.
Cruce over the telephone about the
matter and told him McLamore was
Attorney Pruiett stated that he was
the one to whom she was talking at
the time, and Gov. Cruce added that
the woman had called him up and
talked to him at length about the
matter, stating that tbfo members of
the raiding party had come back
again between 2 and 3 o'clock on the
night of the raid, all drunk, and es-
"She invited me to come out and
inspect the place," added the gov-
ernor, "but 1 declined the Invitation
He further 6tated that he had re-
quested her to attend the hearing if
she had anything to tell.

Sim GALLONS OF WET
Enid, Ok., Aug. 15.—Through a
clever bit of scheming and shrewd-
ness, Constable J. E. Setchell and
Special Deputy Sheriff J. H. Wilkes
of Waukomis confiscated 60 gallons
of whisky en route to Enid from
Waukomis, and thereby exposed a
well engineered plan to bring con-
traband liquor into Enid without
having it shipped direct to the city.
The seizure is probably the largest
on record for whisky in Garfield
county and the disclosure of the
manner in which it was received
will be of material value to officials
in enforcing the law. "Peg Leg" Mc-
Millian and a man named Hinkle,
who refused to tell his given name,
were in charge of the whisky. They
were placed under arrest but denied
having any connection with the
transaction other than being sent
The consignment, which consisted
of 20 boxes each containing three
gallons, arrived at Waukomis on a
northbound freight train late Friday
afternoon of last week. The liquor
was unloaded and placed on the
platform. It was addressed to "L. T.
Powell." As soon as it arrived Con-
stable Setchell became suspicious and
guarded the goods very closely. When
the northbound passenger train
passed through there late Saturday
a man was seen to hurriedly get of!
the train and sign up for the ship-
ment and return to the train, whlcn
was headed for Enid.
jater on in the evening Hinkle
and McMillian appeared in the city
in a spring wagon. They drove to
the depot, hitched their horses and
walked around the town until 11
o'clock at night. At that time they
proceeded to the station, where the
work of loading the "booze" began.
Mr. Setchell and Mr. Wilkes, who
had concealed themselves nearby,
watched the transaction until the
whisky had all been loaded, when
they appeared on the scene and in-
formed Hinkle and McMillian *.bat
they would take charge of the wagon.
The men started off, leaving the wag-
on and us contents In charge of the
officers, but thoy were immediately
informed that they would have to
remain. Sheriff Hume was at once
communicated with and ordered the
men and svhisky brought to Enid im-

A surprise party was given Master

day evening, from 3 to 5 o'clock, in

REDUCTION OF 15 PER
CENT IN EXPRESS RATES
Oklahoma City, Aug. 15.—A propo-
sition for a compromise which will
reduce express rates in Oklahoma at
least 15 per cent was offered to the
corporation commission Monday by
all the express companies except
Wells-Fargo &. Co., and the prospects
are good for au agreemeut between
the companies and the commission
on a general reduction of rates.
The companies agree to the com-
mission's rates on all special classes,
such as repairs aud machinery, fruits,
vegetables, etc., the old difference be-
ing on merchandise and cream rates.
On merchandise the companies sub-
mit a schedule of rates that will be
satisfactory to them, which make a
reduction of 12 1-2 to 15 per cent on
the rates now in force, as against a
reduction of 25 per cent proposed by
the commission. They also agree to
put in what is kuown .as the Rock
Island cream rate, which was the
rate originally asked for by the
Taking all of the* rates together,
the reduction agreed to by the ex-
press companies will be somewhere
between 15 and 10 per cent below
present rates, as the acceptance of
the commission's rate on special
classifications makes the total reduc-
tion greater than the percentage
agreed to on merchandise rates.

THE BOSTON GROCERY
Coalgate, Ok., Aug. lt>.—John Mas-
sey killed a man at Stringtown,
Atoka county, but four months ago,
and on account of the feeling against
him in that county was brought here
for safekeeping. Because of his prev-
ious good charter he was given con-
siderable liberty, and Sunday night
he left the jail to feed the hogs,
failing to return.
An investigation was made and it
was discovered that a pistol was
missing from the jail office. Sheriff
Murphy at once started in pursuit of
him and Monday telephoned in that
Massey had committed suicide. He
had returned to his home at String-
town, bid his family good-bye and
shot himself through the head.
