Machinery Defective Says a Lawyer-
Speculation as to the Outcome of
Greer County Suit
Guthrie O. T. April 5 There is a
persistent rumor that the Oklahoma
election board as constituted by the
constitutional convention to name
election machinery and canvass the
vote of the first election is preparing
to hide out in case Judge Burford
grants an Injunction against the board
in the Greer county division case.
There is a strong belief that the
court will issue an injunction in the
Greer county case. The convention
attorneys are planning if this is the
result to apply to the United States
supreme court for a writ of prohibition
to restrain the Oklahoma courts from
interfering with the proceedings of
If this fails then some believe that
the convention will seek to have the
election board resort to the plan of
getting out of the jurisdiction of the
court and going ahead to prepare for
A prominent attorney has stated
that he considers it doubtful if the
United Statessupreme court will grant
a writ of prohibition in the case.
The discovery has been made that
the election ordinance passed by the
convention fails to provide for the
members of the election board ac
knowledging their appointment or for
subscribing to an oath of office. This
in the opinion of some good lawyers
invalidates the election ordinance and
makes inoperative the whole election
plan of the constitutional convention
unless this defect is remedied when
the convention reconvenes April 16.
Washington D. C. April 6 Tarns
Bixby in an interview yesterday an-
nounced that under no circumstances
would he resign while under fire. No-
thingjshort of removal he said would
make him sever his official relations
with the department at this time.
He intimated strongly that once clear-
ed of the charges his resignation
would be forthcoming shortly thereaf-

Andy Williams met with an acci-
dent Friday evening at the Vinita
Plow Co. where he was assisting in
unloading a carload of mowing ma-
chines. He was handling a heavily loaded
truck and some of the boxes falling
from the top of the tounge which in
coming in contact with Mr. Williams
legs broke bothbelow the knee.
Guthrie Okla. April 6 There is
much speculation In Republican cir-
cles as to who will be elected chairman
of the new state committee. The com-
mittee and chaliman will be selected
at a state convention to meet some
time early in May.
Jake Ilamon the present chairman
is a candidate for the place. Some of
the party leaders here declare that he
cannot be re-elected. Two candidates
prominently spoken of are James Cot-
tingham of Guthrie and O. A. Wells
present secretary of the committee.
Wells is clerk of Judge Dickinson's
court at Ardmore. Politicians here are
predicting that neither Wells or Cot-
tingham will get the place. If it is
decided to give the chairmanship to
the Indian Territory side Wells is
likely to be the man with Whiting
of Enid for secretary.
Governor Frank Frantz has selected
Dr. Hugh Scott his secretary to
manage his campaign for the gubrna-
natorlal nomination. Delegate B. S.
McGuire is for Frantz while Jake
II amon's following is inclined to sup-
port either noward or C. C. Jones of
Oklahoma City. Governor Frantz is
arranging an itinerary and will speak
in every town in the new state.
