OF THE COilIG WEEK
Senator Owen Speaks at the Jefferson Day
Celebration in New York Many Impor-
tant Political Gatherings
Washington April 11. While the
republicans held the limelight in
national politics thin week by reason
of the slate conventions in New York
and Massachusetts the democrats will
have their share of publicity during
the next seven days. The birthday of
Thomas Jefferson which fulls on Mon-
day will likely be celebrated more
generally than In recent years and
many Important utterances may be
expected. By far the most important
of these celebrations will be the ban-
i;uet of the national democratic club
in New York. A quarrel over the
question as to whether William Jen-
nings Bryan should be invited to
.speak at the dinner threatened for
a time to disrupt the club but it is
now likely that the Nebraskan If pres-
ent will add to the ontory of the
ocaslon. The other speakers will be

ton university Senator Owen of

Two important democratic state
conventions will be held Tuesday
those of New York and Delaware.
The latter gathering will likely as-
sume an Importance not warranted
by the liniKjrtance of the state in
national poUties.owing to the fact that
It will mark the launching of a boom
lor Judge George Gray for president.
For several months the Delaware
jurist has been occasionally mention-
ed as the "logical leader" of the east-
ern democracy in its opposition to
the caDd'ulacy of William J. Bryan

-convention wHl also meet on Tuesday
Carnegie hall New York having been
selected the scene of the gathering.
Sentiment among tho members of the
democratic state committee favors an
unlnstructed delegation from the Em-
pire state but there will probably be
some opposition to this program.
Many delegations from upstate coun-
ties and cities have been Instructed
to work for the interests of Bryan.
Chilrninn Connors of the state com-
mittee and many other prominent
democrats are believed to favor Gov-
ernor Johnson and will attempt to se-
cure the election of delegates favora-
ble to the Mlneot rtnn. Mr. Pryan
will be In New York next week and
nny attend the convention.
The Michigan democratic stale com-
mittee will mold a meeting In Laa-
hing next Wednesday to fix the lime
and place for holding the state conven-
tion. It is likely that Mr. Bryan will
receive th" endorsement of the com-
mittee although Governor Johnson of
Miutu-soia has gilned many adherents

vention to be htld next week Is that

That the man murdered near Rush

belief of W. R. Cooper of Cleburne
Tex. who arrived in the city last
night and at once went to the Kreitz

mains. Owing to the fact that the face was
disfigured by injuries Mr. Cooper was
not positive although he has little
doubt that it is his boy. The weight
height clothing and general features
were identified and Mr. Cooper also
said the flnife and pipe found at the
scene of the killing looked like those
his son had.
The name of Mr. Cooper's son was
James Albert and not Charley as
given by the victim In his semi-conscious
state before death. The boy

BEFORE THE COMMITTEE SHOW
THAT CH1CKASHA IS ENTITLED
TO THE SCHOOL
Guthrie April 11. The Chickasha
boosters were given a hearing before
the committee on public buildings last
night.. Strong arguments were pre
sented which proved conclusively that
the Queen of the Washita is the logi
cal location for the state industrial
school for girls.. The delegation back-
ed up their arguments with abundance
of facts and it was evident that the
committee was strongly impressed.
The presence of hte ladies added to
the effectiveness of the appeal.
It is expected that the committee
will report next week recommending
locations for all the state institutions
and the fight will then be transferred
to the floor of both houses.
NEW YORK FOR HUGHES
New York April 11. The New Y'ork
state republican convention was called

hall for the purpose of electing four
delegates at large and four alternates
to the Chicago convention June 16
Bad to nominated -two presidential el-
ectors at large and one presidential
electeor for each congressional dis-
trict. It is likely that the convention
will endorse Governor Hughes as its
candidate for the presidency and that
the slate prepared by the governor and
his adherents will go through with lit-
tle opposition. This provides for the
election of Stewart L. Woodruff Frank
S. Black Steh Low and Jacob Gould
Schumrann as delegates.

GALIBLIUG " ORDINANCE
The passage of the anti-gambling or
dinance after it was amended over a
jlucky light made by Burton and the
passage of an ordinance giving the
chief of police police judge and city
attorney a fee of $1 each in all cases
where convictions are secured were
the features of a spirited council meet-
ing yesterday afternoon.
Sections three and four of the gam-
bling ordinance were the features that
occasioned the dabate. These sections
provided a penalty for permitting .any
gambling device to be set up or ope-
rated in a building and the latter sec-
tion provided a penalty Tor the ownera
of buildings in which gambling was
permitted. Burton was alone in his
fight for the former clause all of the
other members voting against it .and
on the latter Riggins voted with hira.
Coffman thought it was nothing but
right to Include the society folks who
play for prizes he didn't want to
make any distinctions. After these
two sections had been stricken out all
members voted for the ordinance. Be-
sides making the penalties higher the
new ordinance forbids any kind of
card playing In a public place.
The ordinance allowing fees for
officers was passed without a dissent-
ing voice. It was understood that
additional fees will be added to the
fines commonly assessed so that it
will cost the city nothing.
The returns of the election Tues-
day were canvassed the results be-
ing substantially as published hereto
In an executive session the appoint-
ment of police and the matter of re-
