part of the year. It was made plain as

responsible for its own high living prices."
Mr. Yoakum then referred to his re-
cent speech to the Farmers' Union in
St. Louis: "A bushel of beans for which
the producer In Florida receives 12.25,

"The average price of eggs to the cus-

Movement Started to Se-
cure 1912 Convention of
A movement In under way to bring the
1912 convention of the Texas Cattle
Raisers' association to Oklahoma City.
The next meeting will be held In March,
1911, at Pan Antonio, and it Is likely
that, a large delegation of Oklahoma
members of the association will attend
and present the claims of tho new live
stock center for the meeting.
Many pioneer members of the associa-
tion are now in Oklahoma, and the lo-
cation of the new packing Industries in
oklahoma c4ty Is bringing more. It
would be a compliment to these mem-
bers If the association should honor Ok-
lahoma <'ity with Its meeting.
The Texas Tattle Raisers' association
is one of the most influential and broad
commercial bodies In the west. Originally
organized to protect the stock raisers
against the cattle thief and the destroyer
of property, it has developed and today
it represents the cattle Industry in Its
commercial interests. Its membership la
limited to representative cattle growers
and handlers of live stock, but it is large,
and when such an organization meets In
convention, it means much to tho city
that is entertaining them. No more lib-
eral body of men could be found.
Milwaukee, Wis., Dec. 12.—Catholic
/parents in Milwaukee were yesterday
advised by three priests to keep their
girls away from Mayor Seidel's "Muni-

ment. Speaking In the same church in

subject anil declared that tho

]fv of the Arch-diocese of Chicago, thus
gave public expression to his views on the
divorce question at the dedication of the
new $60,000 church home of St. Mary's
Parish of Lake Forest yesterday.
Archbishop Quigley also criticised state-
ments of Thomas A. Edison, who denied
the immortality of the soul.
"Mr. Edison is a brilliant and a gifted
inventor," he said, "and yet with all his
wonderful knowledge he does not know

Divided on January 1, .
Because of Sine.
After several weeks of consideration. It
was decided at a meeting of the board of
trustees of St. Joseph's Cathello churr.li
Sunday night to divide the parish of Ok-
lahoma CMy Into two churches. The Cana-
dian river will mark the dividing line
between the churches. The new parish
will be known as tho Capitol Hill church.
The definite division will be made on Jan-
uary 1, and on that date the new church
will be opened and a Catholic school will
be started In Capitol Hill.
The new arrangements sre the result
of the great growth of Bt. Joseph's
church. The oongregatlon has become
too large to be properly handled, and Is
ahlo to support two churches. The
growth of the church has been due largely
to the untlrlug efforts of Bishop Theodore
Mecrscheart and Rev. Bernard Mutsaers.
Father Mutsaers will continue In charge
of St. Joseph's church. Father MoGulro
has been selected for the church In Cap-
