Eleven Below Zero.
At f, o'clock yesterday morning the
government thermometer here reg-
istered 11 below zero, cacording
to Uri Worcester, the local weather
expert. This was our eoldo3t

had risen but one degree and ai

below the zero mark.
Hut today the fickle fluid waxed
congenial and at seven this morn-

the carrier pigeon service from tlie
kitchen of 7,000 households convey-

the water in the pans kettles, etc.,
which had been "left standing"

It makes the old tlmdrs and our
friends, the Court House Loafers,
brush the rust off their brains to
remember bark to its equal in this
country. Not since the winter of
181)9, say some, has Enid experi-
enced such a decided change in
temperature in so short a time.
One year ago today the maximum
temperature was 46, and the mini-
mum 3 8 above zero. In 1908 the
temperature flor January 3 ranged
from 51 to 18 above zero, with .JO
of an inch precipitation.
A Dry Year.
According to the United Stales
weather bureau here for the month
of December 1910, the mean max-
imum temperature was 52 and the
mean minimum 22. The warmest,
day was 64 and the coldest 15. A
precipitation of one-tenth of 0*13
inch was recorded. For the entire
year of 1910 there was less rain-
fall here than has been registered
for many years. The total was but
14.73 inches, distributed as fol-
lows: January .85, February .66,
April 1.61, May 4.12, June 1.12,
July .14, August 5.23, September

Condition^ in 1900.
More rain, evenly distributed,
fell in this city in 1909. For the
month of December the mean maxi-
mum temperature was 40 and the
mean minimum 19. The warmest
day was 58 and the coldest 1
above the zero mark. The precipi-
tation for the year was distribut-
ed as Hollows: January .12, Feb-

Enid'N Wet Year.
1908 will long be remembered as
Enid's wet year. It was then that
the June and July floods caused
the loss of thousands of dollars
here. The rain for those two
months alone for that year wen-
much greater than that for th"
entire year of 1910. For Decem-
ber the mean maximum tenipern-
ture was 50 and the mean minl-
•n mum 28. The warmest day was
68 and ill'- cold Alt 17. The h< n t

Cold, Sulri Huntn Fe.
Reports from the Sunta Fe gen-
eral offices received here show that
a wind storm, with the lowest tem-
perature of the winter, has been
raging since yesterday over the
entire territory from Chicago west
to the Rocky mountains. In To-
kepa the thermometer stood at six
below zero this morning. The San-
ta Fe reports show similar condi-
tions and temperature throughout
Missouri ami Illinois. At Emporia
and firoin there west to the Colo-
rado line, a temperature of eight
below zero is reported with slight
snow flurries. The Southern Kan-
sas and Oklahoma thermometer is
down to zero. The telegraph ser-
vice along the Santa Fe lines

the blizzard but the trains are all
running, though delaped.

Oklahoma City, Jan. 4.—Senato
Bill No. I introduced by Senator
Rcddie yesterday at the opening of
the regular session has attracted
more attention than all other bills
introduced. The bill refers to and
provides for tho regulation of tlie
State Bank Guaranty Fund, and
was prepared by Mr. Roddie who
was one of the committee which
diafted the original bill.
While the bill provides for sonic
changes on the banking board, it
dees not eonforn to the requests of
the state bankers in all particu-
lars. Under this bill the banking
board is to be composed of three

missioner Doley reports thirty nanks
robbed in Kansas during the last
three months; one every third day.
A hundred thousand dollars have
been taken, and not one of the rob-
bers has been captured. The robbers'
system of protection is so perfect as
to place bank robbing among the
less hazardous occupations. Atten-

while the robbers have their head-

state and the best method for cap-
turing the robbers. A closer affilia-
tion with the Anti-Horse Thief ass*

others, to be appointed by him an J |

sire of the bankers is that these
members shall be bankers and rec-
commended by the bankers of the
state, but Senator Roddie stated
yesterday just after the introduc-
tion of the bill that he would
flight vigorously against the im-
posing of any such restriction upon
The bill uontains one feature,
however, which will meet with the
hearty approval of the bankcvK.
That is the requirement that the
assessments for the guraanty fund
shall be left on deposit in the banks
from which they are collected unti'^
needed by the banking board.
Provision is made for a special
form of certificate of deposit to be
issued by <lie banks to the bank
commissioner for the amount of
the assessments levied by the board
The third feature is one for
which Roddie contended two years
ago, but which was cut out at that
time. It provides that state banks
shall not carry more than 10 per
cent, of their reserve with any bank
not protected by the guaranty law.

New Building Bills.
Two public building bills made
their appearance on the first day
of the session. Representative J
1 Gillespie of Tulsa introduced a
bill locating the school for the
blind, now temporarily located at
Fort Gibson, at Tulsa, and makln
an appropriation of $200,000 fo
buildings. The city of Tulsa is re-
quired to furnish a five-acre tract
free to the state.
Senator George W. BareOoot of
Chickasha introduced a bill in the
senate appropriating $100,000 for a
dormitory for the Girls' Industrial
school at Chickasha, and another
appropriating $00,000 for its main-
tenance during the next bienniun:,
$30,000 for each year.

a bill establishing the Muskogee

taken care of later.
Fee anil Salary Hill.
In addition to the bill recom-
mended by the sheriffs' associa-
tion, which made its apearance in
both houses, two bills amending the
fee and salary law were Introduced
in the house. Ono by McDuffle
and Milburn regulates sheriff's
flees, and restricts the deputies to
$1,200 per year. The other, by
Campbell, provides for the qualifi-
cations of justices of the peace In
cities and fixes their salaries. In
cities of 2,500* or more population
they are to receive a salary of $ I ,-

Decision Deals Entirely Willi Act of
Congress Under Which Suit
Washington, Jan. 4.—By unani-
mous decision the supreme court of
the United States today decided the
federal government could not main-
tain the so-called "Panama Canal Li
bel Suit" against the Press Publish-
ing company of New York in the
federal courts of New York.
'n so doing the court affirmed the
decision of the circuit court of the
United States for the southern dis-
trict of New York, which hail quash-
ed the indictments.
In effect, the decision is that the
federal court had no jurisdiction
over the alleged defendar^r, because
the cause might have been brought
in the state court.
The court today dealt entirely
with the act of congress in 1808, un
der which the indictment was
brought. The effect of this act was
to incorporate a criminal law in sev-
eral states In force after July 1.

The court, through Chief Justice
White, said that while the statute

ly prohibited and punished as crimes
by law of the United States and that
the law was dominant and controll-
ing, yet, on the other hand, where
no law of the United States had ex-
pressly provided for the punishment

tions which were made criminal by
laws of several states should be left
to be punished under applicable

Immediately upon the district
court convening this afternpon Dis-
trict Judge Steen called these cases
for hearing in accordance with the
assignment. The attorneys appearing
for tlie parties involved are Garber
& Kruse and Robberts & Curran,
representing the board of education,
and Sturgis, Moore & Manatt, ap-
pearing for the petitioner.
It was evident that the attorneys
for the school board wished first to
thresh out the mandamus question
and the counsel for the opposing side
were just as anxious to try the in-
junction suit brought by Hoyt. Af-
ter considerable legal skirmishing
Judge Steen stated that he would
rather hear the injunction case first.
Mr. Kruse then dictated to the
court stenographer a general demur-
rer with several special grounds
which was considered filed and the
argument upon this demurrer is now
The demurrer interposed by Mr.
Kruse to the application of the peti-
tioner is directed to the following
grounds, principally: First, that the
application does not state grounds
sufficient to constitute a cause of
action; second, a defect In the party

has no legal capacity to* sue, or that
he Is not affected. Other incidental
grounds are also stated in the de-

Before the evidence In fhe case was
adduced Judge Steen hinted that '«e
did not believe the allegations of the
petitioner concerning the qt| stion of

One of the allegations in the peti-
tion of Mr. Hoyt is that Mrs. Dou-
thltt cannot give clear title to tho
land donated to the board for the
reason that the property belongs to
the minor children and cannot he
deeded by her under the conditions
offered to the board of education.
