W& art now experiencing tin? same difficulties resulting
from dry weather that prevailed during last summer. A year
ago we were literally parching from dry'weather which set in
in May. It was with great difficulty thut t)Ue farmers were
able to pull th'eir stock through the past winter and at the
heaviest expense perhaps they ever experienced.
In going out from Tahlequah in most any direction one
is impressed with the wonderful crop of Wheat and oats that
has been harvested, and in many cases thrashed. Where
there is no shock tfr stack of grain in the fields that were
harvested is found large stacks of straw. The question i3:
Whjat will become of this straw? Will it be fed up by the
farmers by permitting live stock to feed at will and trample
lots of it under foot or will it be baled and sheltered for use
next winter? ' .
Indications are at this time that the corn crop of Cher-
okee County will be very light indeed. Indications also point
to a very limited crop or cotton compared iwith years gone by.
Indications also point at this time to a short second crop of
hay These facts staring us in the face should cause reflec-
tion, and every opportunity should bo taken to provide abund
ance of roughness for nexf winter

Washington, D. C. July 20.—The
Oklahoma delegates with Bertha
Snell as Interpreter are now in this
city before the congress in the in-
terest of the Eastern Cherokee.
They expect; to come before the
committee of Indian Affairs soon to-
morrow morning, they having al-
ready a promise of a hearing before
leaving this city for their homes in
Oklahoma. Miss Snell made her
plea, stating "we do not |want to
leave this place until we have ac-
complished something," in which
cause we have the goods and the
could be done toward getting a hear-
ing before the committee of Indian
Affairs. They have already intro-
duced the bill and expect a hearing
soon. Miss Snell is a bright and in-
ti llifient young woman of Oklahoma

tive legislation which a Democratic
Administration has brought into
force and effect for the benefit of
every State and all classes.
It has been the habit of some Re-
publican newspapers and some Re
publican politicians of Pennsylva-
nia to assert that an under advan
tage has been given in the South
in the laws and policies fostered by
the present National Administia-
tiou. The people of that state can

of these assertions while they are

or defend before the Senate hi.'
course in the Peace Conference or
his part in creating the League of
Nations. Neither was there need, as
he told the Senators, to report to
them what was attempted and don.-
in Paris. Yet, he has given to lh
Senate- and through the Senate to
the people—an eloquent and con-
vincing argument and justification
for this country's continuance in an
international partnership to pre,
serve the peace that lias been won
after four years of sacrifices, star-
vation and slaughter.
If, as his critics contend, lie s.-ldj
notliig new upon his subject, cer (
tainly all that he uttered utas true.
The business of keeping the peace
belongs to every nation whose inter
ests and safety • will be threatened I
by war: that is. to every nation of
the world. And in fulfilling this!
duty the nations c;n have hereafter!
ro more success, acting severally,
than they have had heretofore. They j
r.iuet be brought Into concert; into
a coalition that will pledge their j
moral and material resources to the j
common task of safeguarding them
i selves by protecting their neighbors}.
The President ,was under no ne-
cessity of proving the obvious. Th'i
! Senate knows that a League of Na
I (ions is imperative; that it is an in
herenl, inseparable part of the ar-
rangenienl and maintenance of
'peace. There are those wh<r are

knowledge. They pretend to see in

NREST (iROWINO IN CHICAGO
Chicago. July 22.—Chicago today
appears to be confronted by one of
the most serious industrial situa-
tions in its history because of labor
strikes and lockouts. It is estimated
that more than 150,000 men are
idle and the number appears to be
growing. Efforts of employers to
settle the disputes h;r e thus far
been (unsatisfactory. In many of
the disputes the only demand o' he
men is for a closed shop. In other
instances they ask for increased pay
and a 44-hour week, with time anil
a half for overtime. Several of the
strikes were unauthorized by the
unions, according to labor leaders,
the men walking out in groups.
Labor leaders declare that mem-
bers of the union have been seized
by a spirit of restlessness. They de-
mand a change but in some instanc-
es when asked to formulate their
terms they either refuse or postpone
Employers accuse unions of vio-
lating the wage scales of joint trade
agreements and declare it is im-
possible to deal with their men un-
der the conditions.
