EASTERN OKLAHOMA MADE SA
HARA BY COURT DECISION
RULING IN WEBB CASE
WILL PUT LID ON TIGHT FOR
The Government Is Still Guardian of
Indians, and Conditions Existent
Previous to Statehood Still
Washington.—As in the early days,
the eastern section of Oklahoma or
the old Indian territory sido of the
sLate will be dry as the Sahara desert
as the result of an opinion handed
down by the United States supreme
court which was prepared by .Justice
The court held that federal prohibi-
tion of tho transportation of intoxi- j
eating liquor into eastern Oklahoma !
or the old Indian territory was still j
effective and that persons convicted
of importing liquors should be liable
to the same punishment administered
before statehood. The supreme court
maintained that the enabling act gave
Oklahoma the right to regulate purely
interstate traffic, but maintained that
tho federal government still had the
right, it being the original and real
guardian of the Indians, to enforce the
Haws ©governing the interstate intro-
duction of liquor into the eastern side.
The enabling act provided strict
prohibition should reign in the old In-
dian territory for a period of twenty-
one years, and this provision also was
Placed in the state constitution by
the constitutional convention.
The opinion handed down is on^of
‘.lie most important that has been
Riven in Oklahoma^cases this winter.
Stops Heavy Traffic
Since statehood there always has
seen a kuestion as to the government's
right to prevent interstate shipments,
and as a result it is declared that li
luor traffic has beerf carried on freely
*nd that thousands of people who
were handicapped in obtaining liquor
within the state purchased outside
ind had it shipped In by express.
It is estimated that hundreds of
'.housands of dollars worth of liquors
lave been sent into the state on the |
•astern side alone every year. Owing
to the severe punishment provided I
inder the old federal regulations
which through the opinion of the court
•till are in effect, these shipments are
»ure to be curtailed almost to nothing,
lor anyone caught introducing liquors
jn the east side can be thrown in Jail
ind heavily fined. In fact,, there is
io escape from the jail sentence if
ane is caught.
In the olden days on the eastern
•ide there were many cases where peo-
ple entering the territory from neigh
ooring states and who carried liquor
!n their grips for private consumption
were dragged from the trains by dep-
uty United States marshals taken be-
fore courts, fined und jailed. Hund-
reds of people selling liquor within
the borders of the territory were jail-
ed and the amount of liquor selling
was reduced to almost nothing, al-
though some men constantly braved
the danger of Jail terms by operating
traveling saloons, the saloons being

EDITOR OF OKLAHOMA FARM
JOURNAL ISSUES TIMELY
ADVICE TO FARMERS
Lack of Rain in Many Parts of State
Makes it Imperative to Pro-
vide Against Shortage
Oklahoma City.—John Fields,
editor of the Oklahoma Farm Journal,
sends out the following appeal to the
farmers and business men of Okla-
"Present conditions call for speedy
action of a repetition of last season’s
shortage #of feed is to be prevented.
Notwithstanding your good work
during the past six months, the acre-
age of kafircorn planted to this date
is not sufficient. A few good rains
In April and May caused thousands
of farmers, and many of you, to con-
clude that this is to be ‘good corn
"Unless It rains every week through
July and August, we cannot have a
full crop of corn, because, being late,
It will he in the critical stage dur-
ing those two months. And it’s not
likely to rain every \vf*ek.
Kafircorn, milomaize, cow pens, pea-
nuts and sorghum niny be planted
in June with almost absolute certain-
ty of producing feed in plenty.
"Urge those who are depending en-
tirely upon corn, or who expect to
grow cotton to get moony to buy
! feed, to plant some of these sure feed
crops in June, before it is too late.
"Unless we do this, and do it now,
business in Oklahoma next fall is
staked on the fickle chance of fre-
quent summer showers.
‘ I hope they’ll come, but doubt it.”
MAY REPORT ON COTTON
NOT VERY FLATTERING
Condition Is Somewhat Under That
of Last Year Both In United
States and State
Washington—The first report of
the department of agriculture show-
ing the condition on May 25 of cotton j
of this season’s planting in the United i
States, as compiled from the repotrs I
of the correspondents and agents of j
, the bureau of statistics, was issued ;
Tuesday at noon by the crop report- 1
ing board, which estimated the condi- j
tion as 78.9 per cent of a normal, com- i
pared with 87.8 per cent on May 25 '
last year.*82 per cent on the corres-
ponding date in 1910, 81.1 per cent
in 1909 and 81.5 per cent, the aver-
age condition for the past ten years
on May 25.
The usual estimate by the depart-
ment of agriculture giving the acre-
age planted to cotton and issued
yearly with the first condition report
this year has been, and hencefortji
will be, deferred until July, owing to
vli*» passage recently by congress of
a law requiring this change
COMMERCE COURT UPHOLDS
WILL HELP STATE JOBBERS
RATES WERE DISCRIMINATORY
IN FAVOR OF TEXAS
All Parties" Concerned To Meet and
Agree on An Equitable Scale and
Submit Same to Interstate
Washington—That the present class
and commidities freight rates from Ok-
lahoma into Texas are unjustly dis-
triminatory and unreasonable, was the
decision of the interstate commerce
:ourt, by Commissioner Clements, in
the complaint brought by the corpora-
tion commission of Oklahoma against
the Abilene and Southern railway.
The-commisslon upheld the Oklahoma
commission in its contentions that
the rates from Texas into Oklahoma
were much lower, hence the discrim-
ination between the jobbers of Texas
and Oklahoma citiCB.
The commission, however, made no
attempt to suggest a new scale of
rates which should prevail between
tile two states, but suggests that all
parlies concerned in the case hold a
convention and come to some agree-
ment on an equitable scale, to be
later submitted to and approved by
the interstate commerce commission.
In order that all parties concerned
may frame some basis of future and
just rates, the case is left open until
The complaint filed with the com-
merce commission challenged the rea-
sonableness of all class and commodi-
ties rate carried in Leland’s South-
western line tariff. Most of the testi-
mony was confined to representative
jobbing points like Oklahoma City and
Durant in Oklahoma, and Dallas, Fort
Worth and Sherman in Texas.
Generally speaking the Texas ter-
ritory of prime importance to the Okla-
homa jobbing trade extends to sixty
miles south of Temple and includes
the northwestern part of the state
known as the Panhandle.

An elder while baptizing converts at
a revival meeting advanced with a

whether there was any reason why

powerful-looking man who was looking
quietly on remarked:
