Governor Cruce hurried houie up
on hearing of a few par-
dons made by Lieutenant Governor
McAlester during the absence of the
Governor. I'erhaps they were not

i>rder reducing the rate and Increas-
ing the size of parrel post packages,
may have demonstrated how much
the express companies have been
making and been the real cause of
the reduction in rates fixed by the
Interstate commerce conimilsslon.
There was a marked contrast be-
twen the closing of the N. K. S. N.
this year and last. Last year at the
final meeting in the chapel, with the
faculty all gathered upon the stage,
more than half of the gathering wore
in that group, Last Wednesday, the
last meeting in the chapel for this
year, the auditorium was filled and
a number of interesting talks to the
students by men prominent in educa-
tional work were made. The school
closed its most successful year since
Its institution, yesterday. All who
were in attendance left for their
homes feeling that their time here
had been well spent, many being loud
in their praise of the advantages of
the school and the pains taken by
the president and members of the
faculty. If the attendance is not
even larger next year than this the
old axiom that "nothing succeeds
like success" will have been explod-
ed. A great school year in Tahle-
quah has closed.
ANOTHER MURDER CHARGE
U IDG ED AGAINST UPDIKE
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Aug. 6.
—An alias warrant was sworn out
yesterday by County Attorney L). K.
Pope fo,- the arrest of 13. H. Updike,
relative of Kx-Governor Haskell, con-
victed In 1911 for the murder of P.
D. Anderson in Oklahoma City and
sentenced to life imprisonment. In
the event that he is released from
the penitentiary in compliance with
the order of Lieutenant Governor Mc-
Alester. The warrant was issued
upon information signed by Sam
Hooker as county attorney and sworn
out by him in January, 1911, shortly-
after the murder of A. C. Christen-
son and Anderson. Updike was
charged with the murder of both
Christenson and Anderson, which
occured at Mie same time. Updike
was convicea of the murder of And-
erson but the charge of murdering
Christenson was never prosecuted.
The warrant for Updike's arrest
was placed in the hands of the sher-
iff shortly before noon Monday, with
instructions to notify the warden of
the penitentiary that such a warrant
had been Issued, and request that he
be held until officers of Oklahoma
county arrived. Such a request was
made for the reason that habeas
corpus proceedings were expected to
secure Updike's release from the pen-
itentiary. Sheriff Pinion called the
warden by telephone at noon.

OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. In-
complete returns received from about
half of the counties of the state, yet
representative of every section, in-
dicate that the famous article 'J, sec-
tion 9, of the state cansitution has
been <i mended by u mjorlty of more
than two to one; that the state board
of agriculture for the second time
has been recalled and its membership
reduced, and that I he miners of the
state have won out in their fight for
the repeal of section 18 of the state
mining act, which relates to the man-
ner in which coal shall be min«d.
The returns were no: sufficiently
complete to indicate the outcome on
State (Question No. 57, which pro-
vides that all taxes levied for the
nmlntenance of the common schools
of the state upon the public service
corporations which operate in more
than one county, shall he paid into
a common fund and distributed
among all the districts. The voto
on this question probably will be
The outcome of State Question No.
58, relating to township government
cannot be forecasted from the re-
turns received. The vote on this
question generally was closer in
every section than on the others.
There H practically nothing to In-
dicate in the returns whether the
question is opposed generally or by
While nearly all early returns are
from the cities where a favorable
vote lias been expected on article 9,
the indications aro that due to the
exceedingly light vote cast, the ma-
jorities will be reduced only very
slightly in later returns. Counties
especially interested in railroad de-
velopment cast a heavy vote in favor
of the referred amendment.

second fight upon the old state board
The membership of the board, if
the question is adopted in spite of
the united opposition of the old state
hoard and the socialists, will be com-
posed of men named by the governor
until a general election at which the
members can be chosen.
