CAN WE YOTK?
Have (he people of Oklahoma be-n
alr"rtdy dlsfranchised of the right to
cast a ballot? According lo our dem-
ocratic friends of the administration
type, they have been. In a remon-
strance against the submission to the
people of the referendum measure on
the Taylor election law, friends of
tie administration have taken the
bold ground that the people have not
left to them even the right to say
whether a law shall become effective
or not, after its passage by the legis-
lature, although the initiative and
referendum is guaranteed to us by
Will the people of this state ever
awaken to the character of the polit-
ical buccaneers wha are endeavoring
to fasten themselves and their in-
famous regime on this young com-
monwealth. and to the hollow insin-
cerity and hypocrisy of their claim to
govern with regard to justice and
equity? Under the let the people
rule" administration no opportunlt
has been lost at any step to prevent
the people from exercising the right
to govern themselves, and advantage
has been taken wherever possible to
deprive the people of any part In
the government of the state. The
present attempt to prohibit the Tay-
kr law, which is too Infamous to de-
scribe. from being submitted to :i
vote of the people, is but a bold cli-
max to a career of rule and ruin as
bad as has ever cursed any state In
The Eagle believes with Chairman
Norris that the courts of this state
will he fair and pass on the law as
they find it, but it may be that the
courts will find that the measure was
so trained, by premeditation and de-
sign, as to prevent the people from
having an opportunity to kill this
measure. Should such a case devel

The court dockets of New York.
New Port, Atlantic City, Boston,

and Washington, are crowded with
divorce cases wherein the "social
leaders" of America are accusing
each other of monstrous crimes and
depicting scenes of wickedness which
rivaj tales of Nero's time. So great
is this avalanche of revealed Iniquity
that today society and licentiousness
have become synonymous, when re-
ferring to the "400" of our great
cltfes. From Fifth avenue and like
districts in other cities arises a
stench to remind one that Babylon
was no more wicked than are many
of our metropolitan "Christian" cit-
ies of today.
But through all this nauseous odor
there comes a sweet stray perfume
that gives promise and hope that all
is not as It seems. While the pri-
vate affairs of her brothers and sis-
ters are regaling the sensuous and
gilding the vicious instincts of the
habitats of halls of crime the name
of Helen Gould shines out like a star
on a stormy night, or a beacon light
on a dreary coast, to tell us that
some still remain pure and good, un-
contaminated by the environment
which surrounds them. The name of
Mrs. Russell Sage, who lias devoted
all her time to charity work and

in one year, shines also clear and

to the "business men" as the ones
who ought to contribute toward the

the rent ten dollars per month and

With charming hospitality Miss

guests were served to rice with
cream and ice tea; in Germany,
cheese, crackers and dill pickles com-
posed the menu; hot tamalies and
ice water was enjoyed in Mexico and
best of all in America Ice cream
cones were dispensed. Much merri-
ment was found in the fortune tell-
ing booth, the futures being foretold

HER HUSBAND BECAME
"A HORRIBLE SPECTRE"
Remarkable Tale of Infelicity He-
lmed by Woman Whose Rich
Husband was Stingy.
Atlanta. June IT.—Miserliness
that seems impossible is charged
a„'r.''nst L". Lee Douglass an Atlanta
business man worth $&00,000, in a
suit for divorce filed today by his
wife. Mrs. Emma Neal Douglass.
Mrs. Douglass is a daughter of the
late T. B. Neal, one of Atlanta's
wealthiest men, and is worth J300,-
00 in her own rtght.
The couple were married in 1892
and Mrs. Douglass charges that her
husband's saving began even in the
honeymoon. He began at once charg-
ing her for every meal she ate and
forced hei to settle every month.
Mrs. Douglass says, for instance,
that Douglass never tipped waiters
or porters and that she had to do it
out of her own means; that he re-
quired her to pay the extra expense
of any guest she might have; tMN
his written consent had to be ob-
tained before such guests were In-
vited; that be complained if the ser-
vants got anything to eat but bread;
that he would have only one light
ii) the house at night; that he got
a profit of $6,000 a year from the
management of her estate and want-
ed a salary besides, and so on.
Atttached to the petition is a copy
of a remarkable document -which
Douglass wanted his wife to sign,
to regulate their lives.
One term of the agreement was
that if they should quarrel the party
who apologized should make a public
or private apology and submit to
being kissed one hundred times. Mrs.
Douglass says her huBband actually
enforced the penalty of 100 kisses
against her once and made her sick.
Ahother clause of the agreement
declares; "The enemies of the one
shall be treated as the enemies of
the other, and the friends likewise
as friends of both."
She was never strong, she says,
and her husband's conduct broke
down her health until "he became a
nightmare, a horrible spectre."
