Pleases Hundreds-Lights Went Out
n sn auditorium filled with smoke
from a defective heating plant and
lighted part of the time with a single
lantern Senator Dolliver appeared Sat-
urday night under unfavorable circum-
stances but he succeeded beyond the
most hopeful expectations. Announc-
ing at the beginning that his talk
would be long or short depending upon
the clarifying of the atmosphere. No
one would have been surprised had
he quit in fifteen minutes but he en-
tertained his audience for one and
a half hours with sparkling wit pleas-
ing sentences and elevating senti-
ments. A disagreeable feature of the even-
ing was the going out of the electric
lights as usual. The speaker was
almost through when without notice
the lights went out to the confusion
of the speaker and to the dwp humil-
iation of the audience. .Matches were
lighted at Intervals in different parts
of the audience. Some one took a
lantern and Investigated the cause of
the darkness and uon returning with-
out reu!u th lantern w as placed upon
the stand and speaker proceeded. Fi-
nally a gas lamp was lighted to the
relief of all present.

Threats of Mob Violence
Suppressed and Crowd
Tecumseh Okla. Nov. 16. The
crowds that came through curiosity on
account of the announcement of the
hanging of Will Johnson have dis-
persed and everything is quiet. There!
has been no semblance of disorder'
and threats against the life of the
prisoner when he is taken from the
county jail to appear before the United
States court have not been mude. Re-
ports to the contrary are misleading.
Neither is there a general feeling of
dissatisfaction. Those who have felt
that tha law should have taken its
course without further Interruption
have for the most part been bold
enough to say so openly and a major
ity of this class have told Sheriff
Pierce so but not with a feeling bent
on lawlessness. .No appreneusion is
felt by the sheriff of any trouble when
the prisoner is taken from the jail.
Deputy United States Marshal Ja-
cobson of Guthrie has served Sheriff
Pierce with the habeas corpus papers
that were issued by United States
Judge Cotteral at Lawton. The or-
der provides that a hearing of the
proceedings shall be had within twenty
Johnson remains cool and undis-
turbed. He slept well last night and
ate a hearty breakfast this morning.
He doea not believe that efforts to
save him from the gallows will be
vain. He expects a prison sentence
but not death by hanging.

Oklahoma City Nov. 16. "A dollar
aaved Is a dollar made" is found to
be more accurately Illustrated on the
tax books of Oklahoma county than
perhaps anywhere one might turn for
Perhaps the most ridiculous Item of
all on the county assessment books Is
that which shows opposite "Bicycles
automobiles and motor cycles" the
number 175. There are more than
3000 bicycles In Oklahoma county ac-
cording to conservative estimates made
by several bicycle dealers while in
Oklahoma City alone nearly 300 auto-
mobile are registered. The number
17." is supposed to stand for the num-
ber of bicycles automobiles and mo-
tor cycles in the county and the aver-
age value assessed on the tax books
It $2"9.r2 or a total of ?9 01G.
Nexf is found the item th.?t says
there are 237 typewriters In Oklahoma
county with an average value of $32. SO
or a total of $7707. When this num-
ber was mentioned to a local type-
writer firm yesterday one of the mem-
bers said. "Why I should hate to think
that we do not sell that many every
month and also hate to say that there
are not fully ten times that number
of machines In Oklahoma county.
When it comes to pianos it is a hard
matter to hide them and it is often the
case that the assessor gets into the
room where the piano is located. For
this reason it may be said that the
tax books are more nearly .accurate
when showing 1726 pianos with an
average of $93.47 than in showing 237

purpose of defeating the coal com pine
in the state the corporation commis-
sion has suggested to Inquirers thttt
citizens organize clubs and purchase
eocl direct from the mines at a iving
if $2 iter ton.
Freight rates have been greatly re-
duced by the commission in addition
to the legislation passed last winU"-
'cgi'latlng the weighing of cars an
making It 'impossible for the dealer tf
be short potted as was possible before.
In vite of all these regulations me
neople in many parts of Oklahoma ar.
paying p. actlcally the same pi ire for
f.el ar before sU.tehond.
Whether the retailer is to blame or
whether the fault is with tho mint
owners cannot be learned but the pre-
vailing conditions if prolonged may
compel a fixed retail price for coal
to be established by the commission.
This was threatened months ago but
the order has been held In abeyance.
"The people are entitled to have the
benefit of the freight reductions but
they are not getting It" said a state of-
ficer In commenting on the question.
Oklahoma City appears to have been.
j lucky for some reason as fancy Mc-
I Alester lump has been selling there-
for $4.50 per ton delivered to the pur-

made and the people would be getting
a square deal.
