the session into the night for that
There was quite a lengthy discus-
sion of the committee amendment pro-
hibiting the use of tribal funds in the
iupport of sectarian schools and thus
amended was agreed to. Many other
features of the bill were also debated.
Another feature of the bill was a
speech by Kearns of Utah on the
Mormon church. He charged that the
church controls the politicsand busi-
ness of Utah. He denied in emphatic
terms that he had paid Lorenzo Snow
then president of the church for the
support of himself for senator
At a late hour the senate passed the

INVESTIGATION OF RAYMOND
N. A. OibHOn. Mmkogee Attorney
Says Fnllor'i Doesn't Count.
"The sensational developments in
ttie Investigation of the charges against
Judge Raymond are not all over yet"
said N. A. Gibson of Muskogee I. T.
attorney who was at tha Hotel Bali-
more yesterday. "It is certain that
the Investigation Is not yet closed and
while it is hoped that there may be
no repetition of the sort of incidents
which marked the close of Mr. Fuller's
work In Mukogee there will be things
brought out which will make interest-
ing reading for the public at large as
well as those who are interested
especially in Indian Territory affairs.
It is the desire of everyone connected
witli the case that the investigation
should be continued as under the
present conditions the one conducted
by Mr. Fuller of course cuts no figure
at all. K. C. Journal.

The month of March promises to be
a record breaker in the weather line.
This month we are to have heavy
rains thunder storms and killing frosts
during the first half and balmy south
winds and bright sunny days during
ttie latter part of the month; but all
through we will have March-like
weather a fact which many weather
forecasters neglect to mention.
The weather will be favorable tc

game on the market-
March' is Nature's resurrection
month the promise month. With
new-born feveirsh hope tho farmer
sows again his oats. It Is the same
hope that has filled the breast of the
sons of men every spring sir.ee they
learned that in order to reap they
must sow. March comes laughing over
the hills and awakes the sleeping flow-
ers. She waves her magic wand and
the trees start and throb into new
life. She unlocks Nature's studio and
paints the smiling soil with pigments
mixed by the Great Artist himself.
She tills the air with the music of
mating birds and rustling wings. She
fills the heart of man with sun-gleams
of hope and songs of rapture. She
puts a song of joy in the maiden's
heart and the small boy on crutches;
then t here comes a dash of
rain and the maiden exclaims:
"Dog-gone-it I left my para-
sol at home ! There 'goes my
Sunday bonnet! "
It's the month of March regardless
of expense the housewife takes a tidy
tit and cleans the residence. She flrt
takes out the w.ndows and then takes
down the beds she takes up all the
carpets and beats thMn to shreds. She
scrubs and rubs and scoure Impatient
of restraint she washes down the
woodwork and takes oil all the paint;
she taKea out ail the furniture and
turns it upside down; she breaks the
looking-glasses and lacerates her gown;
she may be frail and feeble the bal-
ance of the year but she has iron
muscles when house-cleaning time is
here. There is no task so difficult
that from It she'll shrink she drives
the children out of doors and drives
her spouse to drink. O she's a "holy
Senate and House Conferees
Failed to Agree on Com-
Washington Feb. 28. Theconferees
on the statehood bill were in session
three hours today but were unable to
agree nor is there any hope held out
by the conferees that there will be
any ultimate" agreement.
The house conferees declined to con-
sider the admission of Oklahoma and
Indian Territory alone and it still ap-
pears that the Foraker amendment
which would admit New Mexico and
Arizona as one state if both territor-
ies voted to adopt the constitution is
the the only chance of statehood legis-
lation. One of the members of the
conference committee said after the
"And that chance is one in a thou-
sand." The conferees declared that no
deadlock exists and that considerable
progress was mada in the tentative re-
conciliation of minordetails ofthe bill.

walk. At first I thought it was simply
bit of worthless metal but as it ap-
peared to be something different I
picked It up. It was a lady's locket
with chain attached. It was one of the
ioutle kind and when I opened It I

"That reminds me of a strange lit-
tle happening" said another member
Df the party. "A few days ago as I was
