PUBLIC CU:iD!NG BILL LOST
Governor Barnes Eefusea to Sign
The Public Buildings Bill.—
El Reno And Enid Mad.
The fiimous public buildings bill,
which found fts way through troth
houses of the legislature, failed to
become a law. Though besieged bv
Enid and El Reno, in the interest of
this measure, Governor Barnes re-
fuscd to affix his signature thereto.
In a rather lengthy statement the
governor says, among other things,
that many of the members who voted
for the bill did so only in fulfillment
of their pledges made to secure the
support of its champions to get their
own bills passed.
It was only natural for those towns
which were to get the new buildings
to ccme to the front and do ail in
their power to secure the governor's
signature to the measute. This they
did, but to no avail.
The enacting of ihis bill into a law
would have fastend upou the territo
ry a heavy debt, aud the chances are
that tlie governor took the wiser
course, and acted the part of a real
friend to the people of Oklahoma.
At all events lucst; institutions will
only have air. castle space for the
next two years.
The Balky l-lcrse.
This story tol 1 by a farmer of
his experienced with a balky horse
is going the rounds of the exchanges:
"One day I was driving him along
the railroad and j.ist as we got on
the crossing he balked. At first I
was afraid the train would come along
Then after awhile I didn't care
whether a train came along or not,
aud in about'an hour I was afraid
one wouldn't come. 1 just asked to
have a train come along. I prayed
for one. Pretty soon 1 saw one com-
ing. It made me smile. When the en-
gineer whistled for me to get off the

Then it was found that the Ter-
ritory was really a land of fulfillment
as well as promise. So great was the
fulfillment that last year, "the fouth
of the series of good crop years, Okla-
homa produced 25,000,000 bushels
of wheat, 15,000,000 bushels of oats,
7(1 000,000 bushels of corn and 100,
000 bales of cotton." This besides
the small fruits and stock inter- j
ests. The valuation for taxation
purposes is $40,000,00q-- a neat sum
for ten \ears, work. Last year's
cotton crop yielded over So,000,000
while the wheat brought SI3,000,000.

Guthrie, March 19: J.C.Strang,
attorney general, has reached a un-
derstanding with John C. Pugh's ex-
territorial bank exminer, that Pugh's
obligations of $740 to the territorial
treasurer shall he paid inside of teu
days. Pugh was allowed $1,000 by
the legislature for alleged deficieu

would pay at once what he owed the
territory. He made a tender of $000
