Frank G. Foster, fireman on the San-
ta Fe between Anthony and Hutchin-
son, Kan., came in Sunday on the
early morning train for a visit with
his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Fos-
ter, and other relatives and friends.
Not a great while ago the papers
told the story of how Mrs. O. H. I’
Belmont wnt to the New York police
station and put up security for the
release of some of the striking shirt |
waist girls of that place. Mrs. Hel-
munt has always been considered by
tne people of the west as a New York
wall (lower of the accepted type, and
her action In assisting the working
girls was so unusuul that Judge Mar

York, wrote to Mrs. Belmont compll
menting her for the good work she
had done. Fifth Avenue Is considered
one of the hardest places on earth to

The women'* suffrage association of
Oklahoma has filed Its petition with
the secretary of state at Guthrie, ask-
ing for a vote on the question of giving
the ballot to the women of Oklaho-
ma. The signatures were detached in
the presence of Governor Haskell.
A committee of three women, Mrs.
Kate Biggars, of Marlow; Dr, Ruth
Oay, of Oklahoma City and Mrs. J. W.
Fuaquay, of Chandler, presented the
petitions. m When the secretary of
state got ready to issue the receipt he
announced that he could not give it
to either of the women who presented
the petitions because of their fran-
chise status. Tho suffrafilsts then in-
duced J. Luther Langston, secretary
of the American Federation of Labor
of Oklahoma to allow the receipt to
be issued in his name, so he was one
of the signers of the petitions. Judite
J. 11. A. Robertson, a democratic cand-
idate for governor, acted as attorney
for the petitioners There were 38,-
543 signers to the petitions, about 500
more than required.
No protests have yet been filed to
Secretary of State Bill Cross says
the petitions came into the office in
better shape than any such documents
he has ever handled. Accompanying
the committee were George Stephens,
of Oklahoma City; Mrs. N. M. Car-
ter, of Guthrie; Mrs. Anna Laskay,
of Oklahoma City.
About a half a dozen women have se-
cured the 38,000 signatures and they
were freely complimented on their
The Governor has not yet indicated
what action will be taken on the pe-
tition filed, but It la safe to say that
whenever the good women of Okla-
homa awake to the fact that they want
the ballot, they are going to get It.
The ballot has been refused the wo-
men of Oklahoma from the fact that
the lawmakers of the state did not feel
willing to turn the affairs of the state
over to the black women and the vi-
clous element, while the good women
atayed away from the polls.
If the women want our support in
ahalr fight they most convince us that
1th«y are ready for the ballot, and that
they will use It when It la given them,
and not stay away from the polls aa
they do la aoma of the atates that al-

to discuss his plans for the future.
Mr. Pinchot arrived at bis office
early in order to arrange his affairs
and withdraw as quickly as possible.
A meeting of the officials who had
been under him had already been ar-
ranged for 10:15 o'clock, and three-
quarters of an hour later, the clerical
force of the forest service arrived la
his office and said good bye.
Advice to Fellows.
In addressing the men with whom
be had been most intimately associ-
ated, Mr. Pinchot declared he wanted
them to remember first that they must
never forget that "the fight in which
you are engaged for the safe and de-
cent handling of our timber lands Is
infinitely larger than any man's per-
sonal presence of personal future.”
Continuing he said:
“This fight, mflst go on and you are
the men who must carry it on. Stay
by the work; hold fast to the stand-
ards we have set together. Never
allow yourselves to forget that you
are serving a much greater maater
than the department of agriculture,
or even the administration.”

time of universal panic, November,
16. 1907. The financial conditions
were terrific. The ordinances of our
constitution were criticised on every
hand. Mr. Roosevelt, while signing
the proclamation, said that his private
opinion of It was “not fit for publi-
cation.' Mr. Taft, a few months prior,
said it was unfit to be adopted by any
state, and advised our people to vote
It down. A few weeks ago he said
our convention was a zoological gar-
den of cranks." Mr. Bryan said It

This Man Had His Own and Peculiar
ideas on the Subject,
Mrs. C W. McCulloch, of Chicago,
on taking up he' new office of justice
of the peace, told •* ’"hlcago reporter
that In the p“v’orniance of marriage
ceremonies she proposed to omit th#
word “obey." in these enlightened
days," said Mrs .V Culloch, “the word
'obey' fcas lost Us meaning in the mar-
riage contract. The best wife does
not propose to 'obey' her husband,
any more than the best husband pro
pcses to 'obey' his wife. Obedience It
for dogs, horses—creatures without
reason. So I think that we should
drop this meulogless word. For It Is-
meaningless. As meaningless so n-
certain other word was to a certain
boorish Lusband. The husoand had
