As financiers the ladies of the Wo-
mens Chamber of Commerce are hard
to beat. Within the past few weeks
they have raised nearly $2,000 to-
ward6 the capital fight and are con-
templating raising still more by
means of other enterprises. This
amount was raised at various times,
namely, at the big dinner given in
the city hail at the picture show ben-
efit where refreshments were served
at the three days Labor Day celebra-
tion, and by means of the big Carni-
val and Beauty Show on Friday and
The carnival was a big success,
and the results in a financial way
pleaed the ladies greatly. Almost
$400 was raised by this means. The
ladies wish to thank all who assisted
In making the affair such a success
and especially those who donated
prizes in the various contests. Spe-
cial thanks are also given to Mr.
Russell, who donated the Elite The-

DEATH OF LITTLE
William Gerald Helden, the little 3-
year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. William
Helden, died at 1501 East Harri-
son avenue, Guthrie, at one o'clock
Sunday morning, September 8, 1912.
On August 27, the little fellow acci-
dentally fell backward into a bucket
of hot water at the farm seven miles
southeast o fthe city.
Dr. Halin was immediately called
and he did what he could in dressing
the wounds. In order to be under
better medical treatment the little
boy was brought to the city. He re-
ceived all the care possible, but the
burns were too severe and baffled
the work of the physician.
The funeral services were held on
Monday afternoon, September 9, at
the M. E. Church, South, conducted
by the pastor, Rev. Abernathy. The
body had been beautifully dressed
and placed in a white casket. Friends
brought flowers and placed them on
the casket, among them a wreath
from the M. W. A.
The body was laid to rest in Sum-
mit View cemetery.

sity of the situation along the Mexi-
can border waB reflected today by the
eontiniuation of preparations for an
emergency, principally the possibility

ened by additional cavalry and other
troops practically upon their arms at
forts throughout the west ready to
move at an hour'8 notice to supple-
[ inent the forces upon the Arizona and

DISCISION LOOKED FOR
BY SUPREME COURT IN
TWO CENT EARE CASES
WASHINGTON, Sept 9.—The early
return to Washington by members of
the Supreme Court of the United
States is taken to indicate the dispo-
sition of important cases shortly af-
ter court convenes October 14. Jus-
tice McKenna 1^ now in New York
on his way back from a trip abroad,
while Chief Justice White and three
or four members of the court are ex-
pected to be in Washington at least
two weeks before the court convenes.
Over fifty cases were under advise-
ment by the oourt when it adjourned
in June. Many of these probably will
■be disposed of on the first decision
day. Others, which have been the
subject of review and study during
the vacation, may require further con-
sideration in the conference room af-
ter the court begins its regular ses-
Most of the cases under advisement
are state rate cases. On these decis-
ions reats in a laTge measure the
authority of states over local railroad
rates. For the first time the Supreme
Court will pass on the validity of two
cent passenger rate laws. Sin^-e about
1907, when two cent laWs became pop-
| ular with legisletors, the railroads
j have complained that the rates wene
I confiscatory and placed a burden cm
j interstate traffic which properly he-
longed on intrastate commerce. Ob-
jections of the same nature have been
made to maximum freight laws adopt-
ed in a number of states.
The decisions will affect direcQy
the rate laws in Missouri, West Vir-
ginia, Oregon, Minnesota, Keatncfcy
and Arkansas. Many other staieB lire
Further far-reaching inerpretaOnms
of the Sherman anti-trust law are an-
ticipated early in the term. Thirljig
the summer the court has had under
advisement a number of "trast cas-
es." Among these <he "hard coal
case," In which the railroads of Ae
Pennsylvania coal regions are rtiaig-
ed by the government with having ef-
fected an Illegal combination to Mo-
nopolize the transportation and sale
of anthracite coal. In the West, the
Union Pacific merger with the SYnrti-
ern Pacific has been attacked a
violation of the Sherman antl-tn*tt
law and this esse may be ready tor
decision in October.
