Guthrie Okla.—Undismayed by the
reproof in the report of the special
'board of inquiry whom Governor Has-
kell appointed to Investigate the find-
ings of the state examiner's report of
the condition of the dispensary finan-
ces, Slate Examiner C. A. Taylor has
continued in his investigations a|nd
Monday made a report of an examina-
tion of the records of State Auditor
Trapp's office which reiterates the
charge that state dispensary finances
were recklessly handled.
He further calls especial attention
to payments, aggregating several
thousand dollars made to C. A.
Lawler, a private detective, by Gov-
ernor C. N. Haskell out of the fund
set apart by the first legislature for
hiring accountants to audit the old
territorial accounts, and other pay-
ments to Lawler by the governor, ag-
gregating $1,300 and coming out of
the fund set aside by senate bill 78 for
defraying expenses of special dele-
gates, committees and other emer-
gency affairs of state.
The vouchers paying Lawler, hear
Governor Haskell's approving signa-
ture, except other claims paid for pro-
hibitory enforcement work by Attor-
ney General West. Sotme extraordi-
narily large items of expense are al-
lowed. For example, the records show
that he drew $1,388.90 for services and
expenses from December 21, 1908, un-
til January 31, 1909, for himself at
$10 per day salary and an operative at
$7 per day, and collected from the
state for that 40 days $212.15 for
imea!s, $209 for hotel bills, $137.95 for
railroad fare and $14.15 for laundry.
That gives him and his man $421 for
meals and hotel bills for 40 days.
The investigation of the records of
Auditor Tramp's office was made by
(Deputy State Examiner Colin Valen-
tine, who reported his investigation to
State Examiner C. A. Taylor as fol-
lows, after showing that of the $4,166,-
305 appropriations available from
statehood to July 1, 1909, to have a
balance remaining of $1,763,508.
"The books (for Auditor Trapp^s of- j
fice) have been well and carefully
kept. . . . claims are in good shape,
hut in many instances I find that war-
rants have been drawn for claims in I
which there is no detail or itcmied |
statement given of what, the money
was drawn for. And I find no detail .
furnished afterwards of how the i
money was spent. In the matter of j
state liquor agency accounts, this is I
especially so, and particularly in the I
case of warrants drawn to R. E. Lo-
zier, Charles West and Fred S. Cald-
well. I can see no way in which the
details can be got at except through
these parties personally.
"Quite a few of the claims filed on j
the attorney general's contingent fund
show a lack of detail."

Exchanging Solemn Thoughts.
"Ah, says the man with the parted
whiskers, "when one stands alone in
the night and contemplates the won-
ders of creation, how futile, how puny
man seems! How vain, how puerile
his hopes and longings, when he is
surrounded by the eternal silence of
the universe! Has this ever occurred

Spectacular Oil Fire.
The most spectacular fire ever wit-
nessed in the oil industry was at one
of the Des Bocas wells in Mexico.
About 60,000 barrels of oil were
burned up daily for nearly two
months. The flames rose to heights
of 800 to 1,400 feet.

A hand-made cigar fiesh from the
table, wrapped In foil, thuB keeping

made of good tobacco is the ideal
smoke. The old, well cured tobaccos
used are so rich in quality that many
who formerly smoked 10c cigars now
smoke Lewis' Single Binder Straight

dealer some more than other 5c cigars,
but the higher price enables this fac-
tory to use extra quality tobacco.

been so much stealing of public funds.
