This case promises to be an un*
usually interesting one in the an-
nals «>f Sapulpa court history as it
is understood a number of local
politicians are interested in its
outcome. A condensed history of
the case as we understand it is
about us follows:
Some time last fall or winter J.
J. Jones, chairman of Republican
Central Committee, was arrested
on a charge of perjury. His case
was called and no one appeared to
testify against him. It was learn-

plaint against Jones. Things went
along smoothly until a charge of
perjury was filed against Potter
which resulted in his arrest yester-
day. Potter claims that he never
signed sny complaint against Jones
and that be signed a oomplaint
against one Ferrell, and he inti-
mates that the oomplaint was shift-
ed without his knowledge. The
trial will probably determine
whether this is corrector not, if so

In the Dark Bad Policy
Lots of people do it, but there’s little,
if any, excuse. People who trade here are
not in the dark. We don’t have trade
tickets and secrets. We are always glad
to tell people all about our goods—where
we buy them, how they are made, why
they cost much or little, etc. The more
light the better.
