BEFORE GOOD ROADS BILL WILL
PASS. IT MUST BE MODIFIED
TO RETAIN HIM OR THERE'LL
BE "NOTHING DOING."
"The good roads bill In its present
form is never going to pass the sen-
ate until an amendment Is made re-
taining Col. Sidney Suggs the present
state highway commissioner in of-
fice" said county commissioner Jas.
It. Taliaferro this morning who has
been in Oklahoma City for a few days
and was a frequent visitor to the
house and senate while there.
"I. as a citizen of this county de-
sire to go on record as being in fa-
vor of the sentiment that would re-
tain Col. Suggs in his present posi-
tion .lust why some of the legisla-
tors have it in for the Colonel is more
than I am able to figure out. He has
done more in the interest of good
roads in Oklahoma and Indian terri
tory without pay and without praise
than nny man in the southwest and
just what they want to eliminate the
only practical man the state has for
this position and put in a theorist is
beyond me but I want to tell you that
tiie senate is not going to do it and
Col. Suggs is going to be the state
highway commissioner of Oklahoma."
Mr. Taliaferro stated that Kelly
Brown our representative from this
county was a staunch advocate of Col.
Suggs and was doing all he could pos-
sibly do to see that he was given a
square deal by the legislature.
DISAPPEARING PEACH TREES
OF COLORADO ORCHARD
Some of the Colorado fruit grow-
ers on the eastern slope of the Rocky
mountains have adopted an ingen-
ious method for protecting their peacli
orchards during the winter season.
The plan which has been found to be
a meritorius one consists of bending
the trees down to the grontid cover-
ing their branches with hay or straw
and then burying them under about
two inches of soil in much the same
way as blackberry and raspberry
bushes are cared for in cold climates.
Although In the past the peach trees
in this section suffered much damage
and frequently were killed outright
during the winters by this method
of culture they are surviving sever-'
weather without difficulty and ber-
ing good yields of fruit. The method
is fully explained in the March Pop
ular Mechanics Magazine.
Mines Are Sanitary.
McAlester Okla.. March 1. Con-
sidering the fact that practically all
of the coal mines in the McAlester
field are located upon leased lands
where improvements must revert to
the Indian owners after the mines
are abandoned sanitary conditions
in the home life of Oklahoma miners
is comparatively satisfactory accord-
ing to Joseph If. White sanitary
engineer with the bureau of mines
who has. just concluded a general
survey of the McAlester field. Mr.
White is collecting data from all
mines in tne United States.

MORE INTEREST PAST TWO DAYS
THAN EVER BEFORE. MANY
WHO HAVE BEEN IDLE NOW AT
Yesterday was the first day or the
diamond ring period in the Ardmore-
ite's Golden Gate-Automobile Contest
and marked the beginning of what ap-
pears will be the most actively con-
tested period in the great premium-
getting campaign. Several of the
young ladies have been to the Ard-
nioreite and examined the beautiful
gem and have pronounced it all that
it has been advertised. Tills added in-
ducement is proving a great Incentive
to work and together with the beauti-
ful weather which prevails it is a
safe prediction that during these next
fifteen days in which the ring will be
awarded to the contestant who shows
the highest count on subscriptions
the most efficient work of the contest
will have been done. The contestants
who are organizing their friends to as-
sist them realize the tremendous ad-
vantage to be gained by concerted ef-
fort. In fourteen days from now the win-
ner of tills valuable preniTum will be
not only the recipient of a most valu-
able reward for her work but will by
reason of the votes secured during this
period be more than elhjlble to win-
ning the grand prize of automobile
at least one of the distict trips to the
Great Panama-Pacific exposition. On-
ly a few weeks more remain in which
to work in the contest and every con-
testant is urged to make the best
of the psychological moment In which
to turn the tide of the campaign to
their side of success as winners. In
the last analysis the winners will be
those who have devoted the most
time the most intelligent enthusi-
astic and persistent effort. No fac-
tor in a contest is quite as import-
ant in placing your standing at the
top of the list as the application of
every precious moment Your success
in a very large measure will be de-
pendent upon the value you plice up-
on the next fourteen days.

NEY GUTTED AND STOCK DE-
STROYED BY FIRE LAST NIGHT.
ORIGIN OF FIRE UNKNOWN.

ly $211.1)111) on stock and building was
the result or last night's blaze in the
hardware establishment of T. K. Kear-

the rooms occupied by the Fagles
lodge and before the fire was under
control the vacant east half of the
building which was unoccupied down
stairs and the west half which was
occupied by Kearney's hardware store
and automobile establlshcnient was
completely gutted and the stock of
hardware practically destroyed as
well as a warehouse that extended
from the main building to the. alley In
the rear. There was some delay in
getting the alarm to the fire station
and this delay had a great deal to
do with the final result of the fire. Sev-
en lines of hose were laid and the
pressure was anything but satisfacto-
ry. An elevator In the store fell and
came near catching one of the fire-
men who was at work under it at the
The upper rooms over the
hardware store were occupied by Den-
nis Fitzgerald as a cotton office and
his effects were a total loss.
Insurance was carried on the build-
ing but the stock was uninsured ac-
cording to a statement of Mr. Kear-
ney. Fortunately there was very lit-
tle breeze stirring last night or the
lire might have been far more serious
situated as it was in the heart of the
business district. The patients in the
Rose Croix hospital which Is next
door to where the fire occurred were
moved to Johnson's drug store until
alter the fire was under control and
the slight damage done to the plaster
in some of the rooms of that institu-
tion caused by an explosion of gas
could lie repaired.
The Kagles lodge was also without
insurance and their loss is estimated
to be about seven hundred dollars.
J. G. Lynch night engineer at the
flour mill while assisting to remove
patients from the Rose Croix hospital
fell down the stairs and severely in-
jured his knee. John Varnell and Ben
Scott two operators at local picture
shows were first on the scene of the
fire and rendered valuable assistance
In removing the patients.
C. T. Sikes and C. P. Smith whose
office for the Western Rig and Lum-
ber company was located In this
building succeeded in saving their
typewriter and some other property
but the majority of it was consumed.
P. P. Kearney lost about two thou-
sand dollars' worth of tools and auto
accessories which were in the shop
on the second floor of the building.
He carried no insurance on thi3 prop-
erty. Only one auto was In the
building at the time and this was

ING COLORADO STRIKE ALSO
Committee Charges Colorado State Mi-
litia with Acts of Lawlessness and
Moral Acts Unfit to be Published in

scathing urralgnnient of the Colorado
militia fur its treatment of the strik-
ing miners and their families is con-
tained In the report toduf of tho
house committee which investigated
the Colorado strike.
Referring to John 1). Rockefeller
for disclaiming responsibility in the
Colorado field the report says:
"The absentee owners and direc-
tors cannot escape moral responsibili-
ty for the conditions In the proper-
ties where they are Interested.
"The percentage of futilities in
Colorado is larger than in any other
state" the committee says. "This
shows that something was wrong with
the mine management."
The report also criticizes Rockefel-
ler sharply as follows:
"He may win the strike by starva-
tion under a false banner of liberty
for the worklngmen but we do not
believe he can maintain peace under
such conditions as ex hit in Colorado."
The report charges the Colorado
militia with lawlessness also immoral
acts unlit to print in the report. The
report declares that men were thrown
into jail on slight provocation and
not given a chance to prove their in-
nocence. BERNHARDT IS DOING WELL.
