tutional and upon this Judge Hill
takes an appeal to the higher court.
It is his contention that the agree-

TSe Weather MANY MINERS
New Orleans La. April 7.
The weacher forecast for
Oklahoma for tonight and
Saturday is unsettled.
GET A JOB
HOLD II DOWN
POLICE IS AFTER ALL THE VAG3.
MILLIONAIRES AND PAUPERS
Kvery police officer left the station
thus morning with a long list of names
of persons charged with vagrancy.
Here in Oklahoma nearly any old
body can be a vag. You may be
worth a million and be a vag. If you
are a drunkard you are a vag if you
are a poker player you are a vag if
you fail to support your family you
are a vag and now how are are all
of us to escape being a vag at some
time and under some circumstances?
After the police had made the first
round there was a fine looking bunch
before his honor the Judge of the
municipal court. Some were fined
the most of them were fined but one
fellow proved that he had a Job. that
he had been working for ten days
really he had put in ten days at hard
labor and his toss testified that he
was so well pleased with the result
of the ten days' work that the defend-
ant had a job just as long as he want-
ed it. And Judge Gait was touched
with pity because the Oklahoma law
wouldn't allow him to fine the fellow
anyway and had to turn him loose.
One able-bodied man fought his case
and he fought hard He didn't have
the price to pay an attorney but he
pleaded his own case. He talked with
tears in his eyes. His defense was
that he had really worked. The man
he worked for was put on the stand.
"Yes" the witness said "your honor
the defendant worked for me. He did
three hours' work three years ago
and since tli: t time I have not known
of his ever doing anything." "You
may stand aside" said the court and
there was a fine entered against the
name of the vag on the docket.
Another made a fight to Bave his
fine money. He stood ready to prove
he was no vag he could show that he
owned property valued at $15000 and
might prove the same property was
worth $20000 if the court would al-
low him to get certain witnesses.
"Owning property is no defense"
said the court. "Have you been lying
around pool halls?" "Yes" was the
answer. "Are you engaged In any
kind of labor?". A negative answer
came from the poor fellow and that
was enough. "Found guilty" said the
Now if some fellow comes to you
with a red nose and soft muscles
some fellow that does not have the
appearance of having earned an hon-
est dollars in a decade and asks you
for work don't turn him down he
will work at any price you name If
you will just agree to ge before
Judge Gait and testify in police court.
HE TALKED SOCIALISM.
His Wife Sued Him for Divorce and
Asks for Her Former Name.
In these piping days of peace all
there Is to make a fuss about Is poll-
tics but one fellow made too much
noise about politics and bifl wife has
entered suit against him for divorce.
Howard & Sigler are the attorneys
for Mrs. E. V. Knight who sues her
husband J. J. Knight for divorce. In
her petition she alleges they were
married in Carter county In March
1908 and lived together until Decem-
ber 1909 a little more than a year.
She says her husband made her saw
wood and do manual labor and
after she was tired from the day's
work he would talk socialism and
abuse the democrats and republicans;
because she did not keep posted on
socialism he called her a fool with
and adjective and would worry her
with political discussions and break
her rest. She asks for her former
name Ellett and for costs of the
suit and for divorce.
A friend can get mighty fond of
you when he wants you to do some-
thing for him.
BETWEEN FIFTY AND SEVENTY-
FIVE MEN ENTOMBED IN MINE
LITTLE CHANCE FOR ESCAPE
Fire Is Raging Along the Entire Vein
Although With Two Openings to
the Mine Entombed Men Are Cut
Off From Both.
Scranton Penn. April ".Fifty to
seventy-live men employed in the Ban-
croft mine of the Scranton Cola com
pany at Tlioop are entomlx-d In the
inner workings with nil change of
escape it Is believed cut off.
Fire is raging along the entire vein
owing to the engine house having
been et ablaze.
The mine is equipped with two
openings but tho location of the
burning engine room Is such as to
have cut of escape by these routes.
Two thousand extra copies of Sun-
day morning's Ardmoreite will be
sent out over Carter county. If you
have a message you want to reach
every home get it to the office as
early as possible.
REAL ESTATE IS
VERY ACTIVE NOW
R. S. HAYDEN SAYS THAT MANY
CHANGES MUST BE MADE IN
"What is the matter with Ardmor
people?" said the tax assessor today.
"You se my men have been work-
ing since the first of March in the
field and there have been more real
estate changes than ever In-'fore and
there are a lot of new people here
and they are buying right and left."
And that Is really wnat Is happen
ing. Ardmore proxrty Is In demand.
The Ardmoreite Is carrying a half
dozen ads for people who want to
buy homes and wihlle some answers
are coming there is not so much
eagerness to sell. When the property
owner realizes that he can turn his
house nnd lot for cash any day of
the week he is not so anxious to sell
as when he has to hunt a month for
a buyer. .
The tlx valuations will be about
the same as they were la.st year and
the people will le pleased to know
they have not been raised. The books
of the assessor will ibe ready for
the equalization boarn about the sec-
ond Monday in May.
OWEN IN STATEHOOD FIGHT.
Washington April 6. A flood of
bills poured in upon the senate today.
Senator Owen of Oklahoma offered
one bill to establish a national depart
ment of health and a resolution ap-
proving the constitution of Arizona
and New Mexico and providing for the
admission of these territories to state
Senator Bourne of Oregon Introduc-
ed a resolution submitting to the sev-
eral states an amendment to the con-
stitution providing for the direct elec-
tion of senators. The amendment con-
tains the clause advocated by the
southern democrats providing that
the electors shall have the qualifica
tions of the electors of the most num-
erous branch of the state legislature."
This would prevent federal Interfer-
ence with the ' state constitutions
which fix limitations upon suffrage.
Senator Cullon introduced a bill to
prohibit importation of opium except
for medical .purposes.
Senator Gore of Oklahoma introduc-
ed absolution which was adopted
calling on the secretary of the treas-
ury for information regarding con-

NATIONAL BANKERS MEET.
Recently Converted Financiers May
Oklahoma City Okla. April 6.
Representatives of national banks
which have recently converted from
state banks met here today to perfect
organization with the view of resist
ing collection ot the 1 per cent em-
ergency assessment made for the ben
efit of the state guaranty fund by the
state banking board.
Little Information was allowed to
leak to the public but it is said the
movement represents about fifty na-
tionals which the story is have de-
serted their state charters In the last
thirty days and representing a total
assessment of about $150000.
Complaint against the assessment
Is two-fold the bankers claiming
there was no necessity for It at least
such necessity had not been known
to them and second they object to
the use of guaranty money to keep
weak Institutions going.
This complaint it was made plain
by one of the bankers Is not against
the present state administration or
present banking -board but it is point-
ed out that In the last fourteen
months the state has rushed to the
rescue of banks in a bad condition
and loaned the guarantee fund to
keep their doors open.
State bankers here today said that
a? soon as the report of the exami-
nation of the guaranty fund made Ty
the state bankers' association was re-
ceived by the individual bankers a
meeting would be held to consider It.
Just what the report shows has not
been made public.
The banking board will probably
make a test case with some of the re-
cently converted state banks for the
purpose of collecting the 1 per cent
guaranty fund assessment.

many days of hard wonk during
which the a'ways good aippetltea of
the men were sharpened to the
point whereby they could no longer
endure the pangs they entered a
compact whereby they were sure of
getting enough to eat at least for

panion in misery slept encouraged
Pat with the assurance that he would
soon return. He started for the cel-

over a milk pan which had been
placed on the step to cool the milk.
The noise roused the farmer who
jumped up In .bed and shouted
"Who's there?" Mike merely answer-

that it was only ia cat and settled
down to sleep again. Mike found the
well-stored cupboards and filled him-

returned to the bedroom. He said to
Pat "Now Pat be alsey for on the
cellar sthalrs they have a lot of
milk pans. lie alsey taut you don't

the stairs he thought only of hi8
gnawing hunger and kicked every
pan on the stairs. This -angered the
farmer and out of bed he Jumped

"Who's there!" Pat answered " 'Tl
