BE THANKFUL TO CREAGER
Of course Cannon, Aldrich and that
crowd of statesmen had the best in
terests of the poor at heart when they
framed the tariff bill which Bird Mc-
Guire pronounced the best ever. Mor-
gan and Creager were also among its
boosters and are proud of their haul-
work or heidwork.
The t- was a mighty wail from tic
people against the prohibitive tarifi
on pleasure yachts. There are a s;reiit
many farmers in Oklahoma who do
not own a yacht and in order that
this pleasure might not be derived
them Bird and his philanthropic as-
sociates reduced the tariff on yachts
35 per cent. No doubt this will great-
ly stimulate the yacht industry
Oklahoma and the fanners' wives will
seize the opportunity to "sail" to
town with their butter and eggs.
Every rose has its thorn and after
enjoying the "voyage" to town the
farmer's wife will be disappointed for
Bird and his associates were com-
pelled to have money enough to run
the government and as yachts are
necessity the duty was lowered
them and raised on luxuries.
Now everybody knows that stock-
ings are luxuries. Fanners who rev-
el in yachts can only dream of own-
ing stockings, hence the duty was
placed at 87.95 per cent. Now if the
farmer's wife had indulged extrav-
agant fancies and had, after tying up
her yacht at the wharf of some Okla-
homa seaport, attempted to buy
stockings with the proceeds of her
egsrs and butter, she would quickly
discover the "stocking thorn," which
had been obscured by the "yacht
rose. Bird and his Oklahoma stand
pat confederates can not be expected
to fix everything at one session.
Diamonds next to yachts are much
in demand among the farmers of Ok-
/fthoma and to assist them in the pur-
chase of this necessity a duty of only
10 per cent was placed on diamonds.
Blankets are luxuries to be enjoyed
only by extremely rich hence a duty
of 165.42 per cent was placed on
blankets. Oklahoma people will be
profoundly thankful for the privilege
of purchasing cheap diamonds and will
lonsr for the day when they are
wealthy enough to enjoy blankets.
Dress goods was a luxury, so the
duty was placed at 105.92 per cent.
The wearing of dresses should really
be discouraged except amonp the fab-
ulously wealthy. To compensate for
the high duty placed upon the luxury
of dress goods the necessary "furs"
with which Oklahoma farmers' wives
are in the habit of arraying them-
selves and children, the duty was fixed
at 35 per cent, which we must ac-
knowledge is reasonable. The moral
of the lesson taught by McGuire,
Creager and Morgan is one of thrift
and economy. Oklahoma people must
cease wearing such extravagant things
as woolen dresses, and be content with
seal skin, beaver, or bear (bare) skins.
In the meantime the common people
must rise up and defend this trio,
for they are being sorely beset by
the rich and powerful among whom
they have heaj>ed taxation. It be-
hooves the common people who are
wearing diamonds while sailing in
yachts to rush to the defense of Mc-
Guire, Creager and Morgan.

JAMES F. CURTIS ASSISTANT
SECRETARY OF TREASURY.
Because of His Record on links, He
is a Man After Taft's Own
Washington, Nov. 24.—James F.
Curtis of Boston, Mass., now United
States district attorney, and once
inter-collegiate golf champion of the
United 'States, has been chosen assis-
tant secretary of the treasury.
Announcement to this effect was
made by Secretary MacVeagh today.
Mr. Curtis succeeds James B. Rey-
nolds, who resigned to become a mem
ber of the tariff board, and he will
have special charge of customs mat-
ters. Ae he plays golf, he is a man
after Taft's own heart.
Mr. Curtis is a graduate of Har-
vard, class of 99. His appointment
in some respects akin to that of
Lee McClung, United States treasu-
rer. Mr. McClung gained fame in
college as a halfback on the Yale
gridiron. Mr. Curtis won prowess
as a champion in the intercollegiate
•olf links. Mr. Curtis is an old
friend of Secretary MacYeasrh, has
often visited Dublin, N. H., the
summer home of Secretary MacVeagh
and has friends among Mr. Mac-
Veagh 's neighbors.
He has practiced law since getting
his degree from Harvard. He was
assistant attorney general of Massa-
chusetts, under Attorney General Ma-
lone and resigned to become assist-
ant under United States District At-
Mr. Curtis' appointment was de-
cided upon some time ago, but an-
nouncement was deferred because of
his engagement with what are known
as the steel combination cases in
Boston, to which Mr. Curtis has de-
voted the past ten weeks.
Mr. Curtis is unmarried and is
about 33 years of age, which as Sec-
retary MacVeagh expressed it, "is
a little older than Alexander Hamil-
ton was when he became secretary
of the treasury. He will take charge
of his new duties next week.

An unknown man apparently in-

among the residents in the vicinity
of Third and Delaware avenues about
9 o'clock last night by appearing on
the street armed with a huge re-

use on all who approached. He kept
the citizens at bay for several min-

unable to trace him. He was a well
