HASKELL VS WEST
Governor as Usual Brands Man a
"Liar" if he is Displeased
MAY BE A SERIOUS RUPTURE
In a Series of Letters the Quarrel
and the Breach Opened
Up May Never Be
Miss Maggie Winter entertained
the "42" Club Saturday afternoon
in honor of her charming guest,
Guthrie Okla. Dec ^.-Interest-
ing revelations are made and the
lie is virtually passed in a number
of points in the corresondence be-
tween Governor Haskell and Attor-
ney General West relating to the
Columbia probe made nublic by
Governor Haskell today. The
governor gave the letters following
the publication of one of Attorney
General West's to him. The let-
ters bring out the information
that Attorney General West had,
before Governor Haskell dismissed
the Oklahoma Grand jury, not
only asking that Bank Commission-
er Young and Assistant Bank Com-
missioner Pyle be dismissed for
their connection with the failed
Oklahoma City bank but, that
anothert state official had offered
to give his resignation to Governor
Haskell and that Attorney General
West had recommended that the
resignation be accepted. The
third official was State treasurer
Menefee, according to reliable
Under date of December 12 Gov-
ernor Haskell wrote Mr. West as
You will recall that about four
weeks ago yesterday, in a con-
ference between you and myseli,

you were making concerning one

authority, has put a seal upon my
lips as to what happened before
the grand jury unless some new
duty is cast upon me."
In his answer to this letter Gov-
ernor Haskell under date of De-
cember 17, says:
The event of the last few days at
Tulsa and Kiefer, which are the
direct out growth of your unwar-,
ranted agitation, I trust will be
as sad expeience as will be re(Juir*
ed to make you more thoughtful
in the future. .
"You refuse to give me intor -
mation. You do not hesitate to
give it to the newspapers in the
way of insinuations at least, an<I
this gives your attitude an air of
insincerity. On the 16th instant
vou wrote and delivered an answer
to my letter of the 12th, although
you date your letter the 13th.
Regardless of this misdating, the
substance of your letter is very
unsatisfactory, and I desire with
out further delay that you furnish
me with any information you
have reflecting upon any officer.
You state in your letter to me
that I said you had requested
the removal of two officers and
the acceptance of the resignation
of the third. This statement,
you will observe is not true.
You seek to make it appear that
by virtue of my request that you
investigate giaft at Oklahoma
City, 1 included the right to take
un the Columbia Bank and Trust
matter. You seem to forget that
on four different occasions I told
you that I was busily engaged
taking care of the business of the
Columbia, paying depositors, and
reimbursing the guaranty fund,
and that I wanted no agitation
until I had finished. Un each oc
casion you promised to keep your
hands off the Columbia Bank and
Trust matter. 1 regret that-on
every occasion you ignored your
promise and gave no just ground
for believing that you were not in
sympathy with our efforts to bring
the state out whole and make the
banking law a success. This led
me to observe that your associates,
conferees and advisers were th<
; very cror.-d that strained every
nerve to defeat our banking law.
"In such a tremendous fight as
we have had to sustain the banking
law of Oklahoma, I regret that
you denied me your support.

Last Week In Greer County and
VERY HELPFUL TO WHEAT
Since Snow Fell Very Hopeful
Prospects For Bumper
Wheat Crops Are Be-
A hsavy snow fell last week and
has not entirely melted yet. This
unusual in this section of the
coutry so early in the year and a
had winter is being expected.
It started snowing early hriday
morning and continued all day.
Saturday a stiff wind blew from
the north and kept it from melt-
ing some and Sunday it melHe
quite a little under the bright
sun, but continued this way up
to publication time, cloudy and
gloomy part of the days keeping it
from melting. Crops were bene-
fited greatly by it and the farmers
who have in wheat are congratu-
lating themselves on the prospects.
Another good is, it will damp-
en the ground so deep that when
Spring comes not so much chance
of a dry year is expected. Wheat
will be sold in this county at a
time when very little money is in
the hands of the farmers and will
help to run through those months
until another crop is made. it
the same price is gotten again
