FIRST BIG CKUS
OF SEASON HERE
Howe's Great London Shows Arrived
on Two Special Trains This Morn-
ing An Excellent Parade.
The first big circus to visit the lo-
cality this season is with us today.
The Howe's Great Loudon Shows con-
ceded by press and public to be the
best and biggest independent circus
organization on tour this season ar-
rived in Vinita early this morning from
Muskogee on two special trains. There
were few sleepy heads among the
youngsters h!s morning. The small
boy and his Utile sister who usually
object streuuously to getting up early
enough to brush lucir hair do" the
chores and get ready for school were
on hand at an early hour to watch the
big shows unload.
Ever see a circus unload? If not
you have missed one of the chief joys
of boyhood one which surpasses swim-
ing In the old swiming hole or "hook-
ing apples" from the neighbors or-
chard. The streets were packed this morn-
. ing with country people many of
whom drove In from quite a distance
to witness the first big parade of the
season and the school -rooms must
have appeared sadly deserted judging
from the number of young Americans
who followed the gay calalcade from
the grounds and over the principal
Comments of approval were heard
on all sides on the excellence of the
parade. No one within hearing of the
big band which led the prade or the
four other big bands which followed
in quick succession or the funny clown
band which rode on one of the men-"agerifr-
wagons or the great steam
caliope was so blaze that the .music
failed to quicken his pulse or hasten
his steps towards another street cor-
ner where he could view the gay caval-
cade all over again -
This year's Howe's Great London
Shows are entirely new and there are
"novelties" galore. The following is
from the Daily Oklahoman of Okla-
"The first circus of the season the
Howe's Great London shows has been
with us and if the first of he year
is any forecast of what is to come
circus goers of this city certainly have
a treat in store for them. The Howe's
show is good and it was all the more
pleasing because it is perhaps the
cleanest show on the road today. The
atmosphere of cleanliness extends to
the performers and aside from the
ability they displayed there has never
been a cleaner cut appearance aggre-
gation of performers in this city.
Accustomed to seeing fine horses
with a circus one gets a little more
than they expected with the Howe's
show. Beautiful Kentucky thorough-
breds and Arabian ring horses traced
to do most everything but talk are the
rule and there are so many of them
that one hardly knows which to admire
The Howe show features a number
of excellent Japanese acts. The Uyeno
troupe with their marvelous acrobatic
acts are undoubtedly the best ever
se?s-h3re and are alone well worth
a visit to the circus. The 1 50 odd other
acts are also of the very best and
there are plenty of thrillers to delight
the older circus goer.
No circus would be complete with-
out clowns and the Howe show car-
ries a small army of these funny fel-
lows. The best part of their perform-
ance is that they pull some really novel
stunts and produce real laughs.
The show carries a select menagerie
and one of the attractions In this de-
partment was an enormous dromedary
said to be the largest in America. The
circus also has the largest elephant
and among the feature acts is a won
derful act by these tig fellows which
is in every way a novelty.
There is not a department in the
Howe's show that is not clean and
high class and entertaining iu every
respect and all the acts are put on
with a snap and vim which patrons of
the new saw-dust ring delight in. Most
circuses carry something to please
each various member of the family
but the Howe show seems to be one
in which every act seems to p?ease
everybody. fe .
10 GOLDEN RULE

will be cast for Theodore Roosevelt
and Speaker Champ Clark unless the
few election districts still to be heard

Colonel Roosevelt on the face of the

number of votes necessary to control

The primaries divided the delegates
to the state convention as follows;

time the first returns arrived from

63 delegates to his opponents 61. It

Clark and Roosevelt leaped into the
lead early with complete delegations

preferential vote in this city was
greater than that of Harmon and Wil-

by nearly three to one and the New

Thirteenth Census Statistics Issued by
the Census Bureau.
Washington D. C May 7.- An ad-
vance bulletin on the statistics of man-
ufactures for the state of Oklahoma
for the calendar year 1909 as shown
by the thirteenth census has been
issued by Director Durand of the bu-
reau of census department of com-
merce and labor. It was prepared un-
der the supervision of Wm. M. Steuait
chief statistician for manufactures.
The manufactures of Oklahoma have
increased rapidly in their Importance
althought many of the industries are
as yet in their infancy. A marked in-
crease in the independent industrial
activities of the state commenced with
the development of the oil fields in
1907 and the discovery of natural gas.
This cheap fuel has attracted manu-
facturers who have established a num-
ber of new enterprises. The propor-
tion which the manufacturers of the
state represent of the total value of
products of manufacturing industries
in the United States increased from
seven hundredths of 1 per cent in 1890
to seventeen hundredths of 1 per cent
in 1904 and twenty hundredths of 1
per cent in 1909.
In 1909 the state of Oklahoma had
2310 manufacturing establishments
which gave employment to an average
of 1803 persons during the year and
paid out J9.285.000 In salaries and
wages. Of the persons employed 13-
143 were wage earners. These estab-
lishments turned out products to the
value of 153682000 to produce which
materials costing $34153000 were
used. The value added by manufac-
ture was thus $19529000 w.hleh figure

ranged in the order of the value of
Flour-mill and gristmill products.
This industry which was the first in
Importance among the manufacturing
industries of the state gave employ-
ment in 1909 to 842 wage earners and
reported products valued at $19144-
000 or 35.7 per cent of the total value
of manufactured products for the
state. During the dcade 1899-190!) the
value of Hour-mill and gristmill prod-
ucts increased over 300 per cent.
Oil cottonseed and cake. The sta-
tistics presented include those for all
establishments engaged primarily in
extrac ting oil from the seed and iu re-
fining oil for sale. The industry shows
a decided increase during the decade
in the average number of wage earn-
ers the value of products and the
value added by manufacture.
Lumber and timber products. This
industry embraces establishments en-
gaged in logging and also sawmills
planing mills and w ioden packing-
box factories. .Its nwih was most
rapid during the latt. r half of the de-
cade and In 1909 more wage earners
were employed In this Industry than
in any other in the state.
Printing and publishing. This class-
ification includes establishments which
publish newspapers books and period-
icals job-printing offices and those en-
gaged in bookbinding and blank-book
making. Tills industry reported more
establishments and with the excep-
tion of the lumber industry gave em-
ployment lo more wage earners than
any other in the state.

LIKELY 10 PASS
Washington D. C May 6. The
house Indian affairs committee has
just reported Representative Daven-
port's bill directing the secretary of
Interior to issue land patents In the
Seminole country with the recommen-
dation that it be passed.
The bill is designed to correct the
had conditions which reign in Semi-
nole county and which have kept land
transactions and development of the
country in a bad state. Only three
patents to the lands have been Issued
jby the department ot interior tad this
jhas led to a chaotic condition of af-
Ifiirs it is declared. The attorneys
refuse to approve land titles where the
patent it not delivered and the allot-
tees of the land have refused stead
fastly to pay taxes because of the fact
jthat without patents they have been
unable to trade their lands and re-
jalize in any way. As the result of the
refusal to pay taxes the development
jof the Seminole country has been
The department of interior has
steadfastly refused to issue the pat-
ients on the ground that such action
would have a tendency toward the re-
tnioval of all restrictions an dthe de-
jpartment does not wish to loosen Its
grip on the throats of the Indians of
Oklahoma in the slightest
j Should patents be issued to the Sem-
jinole lands it would be possible for
I land transactions to be made out from
under a cloud and a great stimulus
'would be given to prosperity.
