Washington. — President Wilson
from a sick bed ordered the arming
of American merchant ships against
Germany's ruthless submarine war-
fare, and at the same time issued a
proclamation calling an extra session
of congress to meet April 16.
The president’s decision came sud-
denly following the action of the
senate in revising its rules to permit
prompt action on important questions
and tho submission of formal opin-
ions by Secretary Lansing and At-
torney General Gregory that he has
tho power to arm merchantmen with-
out action by congress.
Fraught with the grave possibility
of war witli Germany, the action was
taken by President Wilson only after
he was convinced that Germany ac-
tually is proceeding with her cam-
paign of ruthlessness and has made
efforts to plot with Mexico and Japan
on the territorial Integrity of the

chantmen!. had been completed at the

In deciding that he has power to
arm merebantment. the president took
the position that an old statute pass-
ed in 1819, cited in the senate debate
prohibiting such a step without con-
gress’ action, has no application to
the present situation. He is sure the
nation stands by him, judging by the
overwhelming vote in tho house on the
armed neutrality bill and the known
opinion of a large majority of the'sen-
ate as proof of the attitude of con-
Sufficient Money Available.
Although the bill which failed of
passage in the senate provided for a

expenses of armed neutrality, tho
government has sufficient money

Congress will be asked to provide

Under a bill passed during tho last
I days of the last congress, the funds
at the disposal of the federal war

Automobile Tags Turned Back. 4
Poor workmanship on the first f.OOO
automobile tags made at the state
prison, and their Consequent rejec-
tion by the state highway depar.tment,
has caused delay in supplying tags to
all who paid their license fees during
Appioximately 22,000 licenses for
1917 have been issued. It is esti-
mated that a total of 70,000 motor
vehicles, including tractors and motor-
cycles, will be registered in this state.
The payment of fees has been delayed,
but the number is increasing each
day. Thus far, Texas and Heaver
counties, located farthest fiom the
capital, have registered more motors
than any other two counties.
George B. Noble, state highway com-
missioner stated that every second-
hand and used car must be equipped
with a 1917 tag. Every such motor
purchased should have this year’s tag
furnished by the seller unless it is
part of the bargain that the purchaser
should pay for it.
That some dealers are creating the
impression that the dealer’s tag may
be used for fifteen days while applica-
tion for a license is being put through,
is wrong, Mr. Noble said. Any motor
vehicle to be operated on the streets
or highways must have an individual

The so-called Ferguson “bone dry”
measure, a product of the present leg-
islature, will become effective ninety
days after adjournment of the session,
which will be June 15, provided the
legislature adjourns March 15.
The Ferguson law prohibits the re-
ceiving from common or other carriers
of liquor, the sale of which is barred
in the state, and the federal law pro-
hibits carriers from bringing it into
Prohibitionists contend the opera-
tion of the two laws will make Okla-

toward “dry bone” litigation are tak-

to lay in their supply, for there is
every indication it will be a long time

two laws become effective.
Employment Has Record Business.
J. W. Walden, superintendent of the
state free employment bureau predict-
ed 10,000 assignments to work in the
state for 1917. His prediction is
based on the increase of those as-
signed to positions in February this
year over those who received help
through the bureau In 1916. Out of
146 calls for help and 451 persons who
registered in the office in Oklahoma
City alone, 368 were assigned. An
Increase of 120 per cent over the same

Stop using calomel! It makes you
*ick. Don't lose a day's work. If you
feel lazy, sluggish, bilious or consti-
pated, listen to me!
Calomel Is mercury or quicksilver
which causes necrosis of the bones.
Calomel, when it comes into contact
with sour bile, crashes into it, breaking
it up. This is when you feel that aw-
ful nausea and cramping. If you feel
"all knocked out,” if your liver Is tor-
pid and bowels constipated or you
have headache, dizziness, coated
tongue, If breath Is bad or stomach
sour just try a spoonful of harmless
Dodson’s Liver Tone.
Here's my guarantee—Go to any
drug store or dealer and get a 50-cent
bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone. Take a
spoonful and if it doesn't straighten
you right up and make you feel fine
and vigorous I want you to go back to
the store and get your money. Dod-
son's Liver Tone is destroying the
sale of calomel because !t is real liver
medicine; entirely vegetable, therefore
it cannot salivate or make you sick.
I guarantee that one spoonful of
Dodson's Liver Tone will put your
sluggish liver to work and clean your
bowels of that sour bile and consti-
pated waste which is clogging your
system and making you feel miserable.
I guarantee that a bottle of Dodson'e
Liver Tone will keep your entire fam-
ily feeling fine for months. Give it to
your children. It Is harmless; doesn't
gripe and they like Its pleasant taste.

The Most Economical of

Reports from the state board of ag-

is 7 per cent lower than the January

oilier damage than continued dry
weather lias been reported relative to
