Guthrie haB the commission form of

city clerk is given authority to review

In determining I he case*, Judge
Riddle holds that the powers con-
ferred on the city clerk by the char-
ter, are discretionary and not subject
to control by court orders. Only min-
isterial duties, he says, are subject
to mandamus. In case the city clerk
would arbitrarily refuse to perform

State Sustains a Heavy Fire Loss
Recent oil fires in the Cushing and
Healdton fields, caused by lightning,
resulted iu a monetary loss of $350,000
according to the monthly report of
State Fire Marshal C. C. Hammond,
which was made to State Insurance
Commissioner A. L." Welch.
.The'total loss by lire in August, ac- j
cording to the report, was $535,171.67,
which is the greatest sustained in any
single month since the creation of the
(ire marshal's department. The great
loss, however, is due to the oil fires
ur>d the burning of Morril hall, the
idministration building at the A. and
M. college at Stillwater, which result-
ed in a loss of $90,000. After these
losses have been deducted the re-
maining damage is about normal, ac-
cording to Mr. Hammond.
There were ninety-eight fires in the

That such action Is contemplated
by the commission is intimated by
Commissioner George A. Henshaw in
a statement, attached to an order is-
sued by the commission, which re-
vokes the so-called 75-cent price or-

authority to purchase etude oil at 65
