Schedule as Agreed Upon Is Practi-
cally Same as Original
Guthrie, Okla.—The Smith fee and
salary bill which passed tlie senate
Thursday is in all essential features
the same as the original bill intro-
duced by Senator Smith the first day
of the session. While it has had a
^torniy passage from the first every
attack to break the plan of the orig-
inal bill failed. It was first submit-
ted to the joint committee on fees
and salaries of the senate and house
and reported out practically as it was
introduced but in some respects fix-
passed any possible reconsideration ]ng ]0wer salaries for various county
was blocked by the motion to recon-
.- idei being tabled.
The passage of this bill was hotly
contested from the time that Repre-
sentative Koss offered his substitute
two weeks ago and the lines were
drawn so closely that practically ev-
ery member of th"3 house was pledg-
ed one way or the other before the
bill ever came to roll call.
Several bills were passed finally
including Wortman's oil inspection

tion on an estimate of 25 to 40 per

committee of the whole of the sen-
ate and several sections adopted with
slight amendments and then referred
to a sped?! committee of six with
instructions to re-arrange the salary
The bill as it passed was exactly
the same as reported by the special
committee. While not satisfactory to
the author of the bill as to the salary
schedule, it is considered by those
who are in a position to know, includ-
ing the author of the bill, that it will
save many thousands of dollars to
the taxpayers of the state from the
day it takes effect. The district
clerk, county clerk, clerk of county
court and register of deeds begin
with a minimum salary of $1,400 Itt
counties of less population than 10,-

which was contained in the original
bill and fixing the maximum salary

submitted. The house blocked a pos-
sible fight in that body over the re-

Financial Loss Through Tuberculosis.
Based on the census of 1900, it is
estimated by tho National Association
lor the Study and Prevention of Tu-
berculosis that nearly 100,000 children
now in school will die of tuberculosis
before they are 18 years of age, or
that about 6,400 die annually from
this disease. Kstlmating that on an
average each child who dies of tuber-
culosis has had six years of schooling,
the aggregate loss to the country in
wasted education each year amounts
to $1,102,000. According to investiga-
tions made in New York, Boston and
Stockholm, the percentage of children
who are afflicted with tuberculosis is
much larger than the death rate would

declares that there are two ways of
checking the ravages of tuberculosis
among school children. The first way
is to instruct every school child about

show them how they themselves may
prevent tuberculosis in their homes.
The second method is to establish
open air schools for all children who
have tuberculosis or who are suspect-
ed cases, segregating them from the
