W. C. T. U.
The local W. C, T. U. had a
most interesting meeting last
week.Dslegates were elected to
the convention at Afton as fol-
lows: Mrs. Thompson, Mrs.
Adair, Mrs. Fisher and Mrs Bar-
ton. The five general officers
also have a vote and Chelsea has
4 Territorial Superintendents of
departments, so this union will
have a good delegation.
Mrs. Nellie Elliott sent in her
resignation as president and it
was accepted with deep regret
and a vote ef thanks was tender-
ed to her for her earnest work
during the time she was presi-
dent. The election of a Presi-
dent to serve next year resulted
in a unamious vote for Mrs. Lila
J. Ross, who made a most pleas-
ing speech and thanked the
ladies for the honor of being
ing president of Chelsea Union
and requested every member to
help on the work in every way.
Twenty-six new unions have
been organized in the Territory
since last September and three
new Y's including the Nellie
Elliott Y of Chelsea, which now
has thirty-four on roll. At the
imeeting of the Third Congress-
ional District Republican Press
Association they had a question
box, and among the questions
was, "shall we favor prohibition
in Oklahome Territory a is pro-
vided in the Statehood bill for In-
dian Territory?" Every editor
present promised to do his best
to stamp out the liquor traffic
and make the new state a clean
and temperate one.
The appointment of William
E. Johuson by the department
of Indian officers as a special
agent for the suppression of the
liquor traffic in Indian Territory
is already bearing fruit. Tulsa
was made and five barrels of
whiskey and two of beer were
destroyed. Federal Marshal
Bennett of Muskogee accom-
panied by Mr. Johnson and Bud
Ledbetter led the deputies.
Fifteen of the $25,000 appropria-
ted by Congress for the sup-
pression of the liquor traffic is to
be used in Indian Territory and
Judge Lawrence has also made
a most interesting decision re-
garding shipping of liquor. He
holds that to bring in one drop
is as much an infringment of
the law as a barrel. The only
way liquor can be legally brought
in is to secure a special permit
from Secretary of the Interior.
Only one exists.
The Superintendent ofL. T.
L.. Mrs. Laura Parks thanks Mr.
Hester for the generous gift to
the L. T. L. children of the
prettily arranged booklet tied
with white ribbon, he so gracious-
ly gave them. Thanks again
