WANETTE, POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1911
Wanette's city council has
been restored after a stormy sess-
ion in the district court wherein
the state attempted to make per-
manent the order of suspension.
The termination of the cases
came Friday afternoon when
Deputy County Attorney Wyatt

Smith, one of the suspended offi-
cers, be dismissed. A few of the
cases were dismissed by order of
the court for lack of evidence.
Motions to quash indictments
G. M. Adams, G. E. Beal and
James Hutchinson, former Wan-
ette officials, indicted in connec-

right direction and we have no
doubt but what Mr. Petrie will
succeed in his new enterprise.
He intends to have the best Vau-

are on the circuit and show at
least two times a week. This will
no doubt meet with the hearty
approval of the theater going-

IS YOUR NOSE
AL DENIES RUMORS.

Iy you have not provided yourself with a BANK
ACCOUNT, equal to one month, six months, or a sum
equal to the wages of years, you are at the mercy of

Rumor has been busy again
with the name of the Postmaster
General. Mr. Hitchcock is con-
sidered a particularly eligible
bachelor, and as his work in the
department is supposed to have
commended him to the notice of
the captains of industry, it has
been rumored that he was to re-

and also that he was to marry
and “settle down.” The Post-
master General has thought it

Among politicans, the only as-
pect of the President’s trip across
the country and back is the one
that has to do with its effect on
the voters of the country. Did he
gain votes? is what they ask.
Impartial scrutiny of the situ-
ation seems to result in the con-
viction that the President made
friends everywhere. Whether
the opposit on to him in “insur-
gent” communities has been over
come is a matter of doubt, but
unquestionably it is a good thing
for the President to show him-
self to the people he serves and
to tell them what are his views
