DRUMRIGHT, OKLAHOMA, SATURDAY, MARCH 17. 1917,
CARVER TAKEN SERIOUSLY'
Editorial comments on the trial ^
conviction and punishment of Willard |
Carver, chiropractor, by the state j
senate for contempt indicate that the |
majority of editors of the state in-1
cline to the belief that the senate !
treated the matter more seriously
than it deserved says Harlow's Week-
ly. The fact that Carver's statement
was published in a newspaper may
have inclined the editor* toward len-
iency in behalf of Carver, each editor
subconsciously considerinK himself a
possible co-defendant in a similar
prosecution for libel. Editors thru-
out the state were fjiven a glimpse in-
to the extremity to which a prosecu-
tion for libel may be pushed attains'
a newspaper that unintentionally pub
lishes a libelous political advertise-
ment when Howard Tucker, editor of
the Oklahoma City Daily Pointer in
which the Carver charge of bribery
appeared, felt that the senate mipht
imprison him with Carver, and pos-
sibly to escape possible trial he left
Other than Carver and some of his
immediate associates in the chiro-
practic profession, it is doubtful that
a single individual believed that the
oil line physicians and osteopaths had
assembled $674,300 to be used in
brifing the legislature to enact a law
virtually prohibiting the chiroprac-
tors from practicing in Oklahoma.
Physicians are active men, both men-
tally and physically, and there is no
doubt that as a body they favored
and worked for the passage of the
bill tending to remove the chiroprac-
tors as competitors. In doing so
they were prompted by motives sim-
ilar to those which prompts all other
business men to do everything pos-
sible to lessen competition, besides
the definite conviction that their ac-
tion was in the interest of the peo-
ple who might suffer from a false
and ignorant method of treatment.
But the raising of such a sum, or even
its expenditure when raised, was gen-
erally considered too absurd even for
Norman Democrat-Topic in the
language of the democratic press l>u
reau, treats the subject with a mild
degree of levity, and thinks that de-
scribes the prosecution and convic-
tion by the senate as a species of
"laying on of hands" kindred in a
way to the basic principles of the chi-
ropractors methods of treating pa-
It is presumed that by this time,
Dr. Carver, the belligerent expounder
of the Chiropractic dogma, has dis-
covered that the State Senate has a
system of "laying on of hands" that
answers all practical purposes when
iT, comes to renewing the patient s in-
terest in "life, liberty and the pursuit
of happiness." The Senate rarely
gives a public demonstration of its
power, but when it does it enters into
the matter with an enthusiasm that
fills the galleries and gives the "sub-
ject" the time of its life.
There is a bitter feeling between
even old time friends in Howard,
Kan., over an anti-spooning order.
Citizens complain that the spooners
lean against the fences and break
them down, while the friends of the
lcvelorn vigorously assert that a
fence in a town is useless, anyway.

The apparent, estimated produc-

was as follows: Caddo, 23,140 bar-

•ana light and Thrall, 1,000 barrels;
Kansas, 09,000 barrels; Oklahoma,
outside of Cushing and Shamrock,
120,000 barrels; Cushing and Sham-
rock, 82,500 barrels; Healdton, 58,-
300 barrels; total, 377,640 barrels

The Federal Refining company is
the name of the new refinery at Jen-
nings, the second for that town. It
has been organized by B. L. Brookins,
who has made a success of the bro-
kerage business and who will be its
first president R. G. Fitzpatrick is
vice-president and J. P. Harper treas-
urer. About half the material is on
the ground and arrangements have
been made for 100 tank cars. There
is plenty of good water for refining
purposes and the new concern ought
to be a success from the start.
That the price of Oklahoma-Kansas
crude oil will advance in the next few
days is the general opinion of oper-
ators based upon the actual produc-
tion of all fields. Nothing big is com-
ing in, and the new production is not,
according to the best information ob-
tainable, filling the gap made by the
natural decrease in the older and for
that matter, many of the newer
fields, some of which are showing a
rapid decline. The average opera-
tor can see nothing but a substanti-
al advance in the market in the near
There is a stronger disposition
among the refiners who do not own
production to cut out entirely or as
near as possible the paying of prem-
iums for oil. They have led the way
to the tune of from 50 to 75 cents per
barrel in making the price, and of
course received no credit.
The market for refined products is
still a trifle weak with no changes in
tank wagon prices of the Standard
Oil company anywhere in the west to
help strengthen it
Refiners are still having to nail
close to shore and figure closely to
make a profit at prevailing market
prices for refined stuff.

HERALDS 0F LIBERTY
There'll be nothing doing for Mr.
Daly in Drumright. The fact that
he "has relatives around Drumright"
isn't any special recommendation for
putting him in the ring with Curley.
Promotor Fisher wired this morn-
ing to "Sport" Sullivan, manager of
Young Denny. He will try and se-
cure Young Denny for the bout with
Curley on the thirtieth. He will cov-
er the $1,000 side-bet Sullivan says
he will post.
Anybody wanting any part in that
$1,000 side-bet, notify Fisher. Even
before the match is cinched there has
been something over $400 offered to-
ward making up the money.
Maybe Sullivan thinks we're tin
horns and can't show a thousand ron
men. There's that much drips from
one of our oil tanks of a morning
that is, some mornings.
Who is this Daly, anyway?
Somebody said he once Toug'it ir.
Wichita, Kansas. That's bunk be-
cause they don't fight in Kansas, es-
pecially in Wichita.
Maybe Motto broke his hand and
maybe his manager is stalling. He
may have gotten cold feet and figures
that Curley is too dangerous a prop-
osition for him to tangle with.
Everybody is keen to see the ne-
gotiations for Young Denny to be
fonsumated. t)enny's a keen boy.
He cold-turkeyed Jim Danforth in
the third in New Orleans and Dan-
forth is a light heavyweight.
"Peg" received some posters from
Frank Kirk yesterday. The sailor is
going strong in Denver and meeting
the best of them. His next battle is
March 21, as we remember it, when
he meets Wop Flynn.
Sailor Kirk must have the society
bug. He's changed the spelling of
hjs name and if you write him now-
adays remember that it's spelt with
a "y"; thusly—Saylor Kirke.
It's a little early for swimming but
Scottie announces that there'll be a
big Baptism at the Baptist church to-
morrow afternoon at 3:30. Better
get in and take a spiritual bath.
Bring on your thousand beAns,
Sport. We'll bet a sack of potatoes
against it and damn the difference.
The railroadmen will probably
know by 6:15 whether they went on
strike at 6:00 o'clock or not.
Blessed be the tie that binds tho
candidates to the office.
Spring is sure enough here. The
youngsters in Drumright are out on
roller skates and are keeping many
pedestrians busy showing their agil-
ity in an effort to avoid a collision.
Just as Russia got ready to sue for
a separate peace, a resolution breaks
out in her midst and the situation is
all gummed up again.
Now you guys who have been wait-
ing for a real fighter to meet Curley
Smith put your money in the place
where your mouth has been working.
Denny's the goods.
There's a helluva lot of things we
would rather be doing this morning
than pounding out copy for a new.?
sheet. Probably a lot of things we
ought to be doing other than that,
like sifting ashes or playing under-
study to the chief lieutendant of a
bunch of section hands. Oh, well!
"Negotiations are underway" says
a headline referring to the railroad
strike. So will the strike be by the
time this gets into type.
That deputy sheriff who played
Cupid in Sapulpa this week ought to
move over to Drumright. He would
have a large clientele.
