Every business house and residence should
have "old glory” displayed tomorrow. In plac-
ing the flag at half mast first hoist the flag to
the mast head then lower. On Decoration Day
the flag should be at half mast until noon, then
hauled to the mast head. Promptly at sundown
the colors should be “struck”; never keep the
flag up after sundown.
According to Editor Kelly of Watonga, Bob.
Williams took occasion, while he was making a
speech at Norman last week, to slap our fellow
townsman, Editor Smith, on the wrist, The
story as told by Kelly is substantially as follows:
During his speech Williams made the remark
that “if he was elected governor no two-by-four
politician would have a position on the state
board of affairs.” Lon Frame, chairman of the
present board, was in the audience and a friend
asked him who Bpb. referred to. Lon said, “he
means George Smith of Chandler.” That is a
cruel blow. Here George has been devoting all
his time and energy (for pay of course) in the
interests of Bob. Williams’ candidacy, even to the
extent of getting in bad with the democratic ma-
chine in this county, and (hen to be publicall.v
spanked by his hero. ’Tis awful, but politics
cut queer capers.
"If I am the republican nominee al the pri-
mary election on August 4th, 1914, and the total
number of votes cast for all candidates for the
republican nomination for governor is smaller
than the total number of votes cast for all can-
didates for the progressive nomination for gov-
ernor at that primary election, I will withdraw
and cause my name to be removed from the state
ballot to be voted on November 3, 1914.
“I make this declaration—not as a republican
—not as a progressive—and certainly not as a
democrat—but as a citizen of Oklahoma who
does not intend that he shall be used ns a means
of dividing the opposition of the people to that
band of political pirates which has been looting
this state without interruption since the hour
cf noon on November 16th, 1907.”—John Fields,
in his acceptance of the republican preferential
noifiination for governor, Oklahoma City, April
“Crises come up when it is the duty of all
good citizens to sink party differences and stand
up against flagrant wrong-doings in public life.
All good citizens on such occasions should stand
together without regard to past party affilia-
tions.”—Colonel Roosevelt. Oyster Bay, N. Y„

Washington, May 28.—Since, under the demo-
cratic tariff law. Chinese are shipping eggs into
this country to compete with the American
farmer, great interest has been manifested in
the activity among Chinese egg shippers.
The egg business in China has taken on such
activity under the democratic tariff law that
United" .States consuls are making reports on it
to the United States government. Albert W.
I'ontius, American consul at Nanking, reports
officially that a big egg factory at Nanking is
about to be completed so as to begin operations
this year. He says that Chinese eggs are either
sold in open market or collected by interior
agents and delivered to the factory or to the
The important egg producing district of China,
he reports, comprises the Yellow River and the
Yangtize River Provinces and that the season of
greatest production is from February .to May.
He says there is a local desiccated egg factory
at Nanking which purchases eggs much below
the market price. He says this factory paid
from eight to ten cents a dozen last October.
For local shipping, Mr. I’ontius reports that
eggs are packed in bamboo crates with saw-dust
or straw. He says they are canned at Nanking
and Hankow by a foreign corporation and ship-
ped to Europe. He says he is informed that all
grades of eggs and all kinds of domesticated
fowls are used for this purpose. Refrigeration
service, he says, can be obtained from China to
the United States. The Hankow factory men-
tioned above keeps in operation through the year
by handling game, poultry, feathers, beans and
The American consul reports that jvorknien in

Washington, May 28.—Anticipated spring
business in steel construction has fallen fur be-
low expectations. Reports from the steel dis-
tricts which supply building material show a
great falling off in mill operations.
Building operations are usually a good ther-
mometer of good or bad times. The demand for
iron and steel for buildings would seem to be
growing worse and worse. The whole trend of
the iron and steel industry is downward. It is
reported to be operating at about sixty-five per
cent of its capacity.
In the Pittsburgh district, each week's record
in iron and steel seems worse than the week t sheriff
before. Reports to the New York Sun show that
at the United States Steel Corporation mills, at
Farrell, I’a., the March business booked fell far
below expectations and that consequently prices
are not as firm as they were in the first few
months of the year. The same report says that
the curtailment of operations in certain depart-
ments of the steel industry at Farrell, "tends to
confirm the assertion that current buying of
steel is running fifty per"c.ent lighter than a
A recent report of John A. Penton, of Cleve-
land, secretary of the American Pig Iron As-
sociation, says that foreign manufacturers, op-U
erating under a lower cost ol' production, are*-
shipping large quantities ot pig iron into the
United States, while the industry here is being
carried on at a heavy loss. The wages of thou-
sands of employees in the pig iron industry have
been reduced, the report says, or will have to
be to meet the situation.
“Within the past few months the tarifi
changes have been overlooked by the country in
general, but their effect is now being felt," says
James A. Campbell, of the Youngstown (Ohio)
Sheet and Tube Company. "Naturally some time
would be required for foreign steel makers to
prepare for competition in the United States
but their selling agencies are now at work and
foreigners are reaching into American territory
from seaboard points. To meet this competition
we must reduce labor costs as we cannot pay
protective tariff wages on a free trade basil}.”
Mr. Campbell says tariff reduction are largely
responsible for the present conditions in the
iron and steel industry.

The News-Publicist is authorized
to announce that Geo. E. Arnold of
Chandler, R. F. D. No. 2, is a can-
Meisenberg. The catafalque yesterday
was far more magnificent, the flowers
far more beautiful and' numerous,
and thousands and thousands of men
with bared heads, women carrying
babies in their arms, old gray haired
men and women who could not speak
a word of English and the millionaire
walked silently by, all paying tribute
to a foreigner who had laid down his
life for his adopted country and who
•’slept well” under his covering of
stars and stripes. Police at times
were unable to handle the vaBt crowd
on the outside, but the moment they
passed into the great corridor of the
city hall, a silence of sorrow fell upon
each one and the double line on eith-
er side of the casket embowered in
lillies paid reverent homage to him
who a month ago was unknown tp
all but a few friends.
Webster says fame is opinion wide-
ly diffused; celebrity. A hero ‘‘is a
man of distinguished valor, enter-
prise, intrepedity.” Then Samuel
Melsenberg has reached “fame’s eter-
nal camping ground” for today, miles
and miles of sidewalks were lined
by many, many thousand sad faced
and oftimes tear stained faces who
had made a pilgramage of miles to
pay tribute to a hero.
What a lesson to the youth of this
country. A boy who landed on our
shores twelve years ago, a lad of
eight years then, who could not
speak a word of English, but who
had come with hi3 parents and two
other brothers and one sister to our
"land of the free” to escape the ty-
ranny of the czar and the slavery of
Russia. Today, his name on a mil-
lion lips, his casket followed by gov-
ernors, United States senators, army
otticers with all the trappings and
insignia of office, congressmen, may-
or, all city officials, city council,
mounted and foot police, citizens es-

Republican Campaign Fund# From.
Those Desiring to Oust Democrats.'
Oklahoma City May 25.—Plans
for the present campaign were dis-
cussed at a meeting of the republi-
can state committee which was called
at the Skirvin hotel at 2:00 o’clock
Wednesday afternoon by State Chair-
man Arthur H. Geissler. In connec-
tion with a discussion of the means
of raising funds for the campaign it
was decided that no money will be
accepted from any corporations
persons representing any big fi-
nancial interest, but that the people
of the state who are interested in
ousting the democrats from power
will be given an opportunity to make
contributions to the campaign.
In connection with the discussion
of finances State Chairman Arthur
H. Geissler announced* the appoint-
ment of the general finance commit

posed as follows: J. F. Warren of

Cleveland, Okla., May 25.—The re-
turn of Colonel Roosevelt and hiB
party from their trip through the
Brazil country recalls to the minds
of citizens of Cleveland, Okla., the
adventures' of Alfred and Frank
Greenfield, who fifteen years ago
lived at Cleveland, and where the
“Vvin brother of Alfred yet resides.
Fifteen years ago Alfred ami Frank
undertook practically the same jour-
ney as that made by Colonel Roose-
velt and his party, although not un-
der as favorable conditions. The
Greenfields traveled over nearly the
same route as that taken Njy Roose-
velt and experienced hardships sim-
ilar to those of the recent travelers.
It is believed the Greenfields per-
In September, 1899, it is said that
Alfred, with a few natives started
from their camping place up the
Xingu river and were never seen
again. It is believed they were killed
by what was then known as head-
hunters. A year later Frank started
out with another party and the last
heard of them was a note saying that
members of the, party had been
stricken with fever. It Is supposed
they perished. It will be remem-
bered that Roosevelt suffered a se-
vere attack of jungle fever. The
Greenfields at one time were 700
miles in the interior of Brazil. The
letters of the Greenfields sent back
to relatives and friends in Cleveland^

What good thought 1? Behind all

morrow if their president called for
volunteers, marched a few score of
old white haired men, many of them
leaning heavily on canes, and all far

Th« following resolutions were
adopted at the annual meeting of
the Ozark Trails association at Tulsa
this week. J. A. McLaughlin, presi-
dent of the Pull Together club of
Chandler, was a member of the com-
mittee and many of the resolutions
Resolved, By this convention that
we recommend most earnestly the
great work already accomplished by
this association, and we here pledge
our united and individual support to
the accomplishment of the great
work ahead of us. In this connec-
tion we most earnestly commend the
untiring zeal, enthusiasm and patriot-
ic loyalty to this work of our presi-
dent. Mr. W. H. Harvey, and the oth-
er officers of this association.
We believe that the system of
roads advocated by this association
in connection with and as part of a
well defined system of national high-
ways should be built and maintained
by the national government, without
retaxing the people for such unrpose,
provided that such national system is
so comprehensive as to include all
interstate, or roads which are clearly
national in character, thus relieving
the states and counties of any ex-
pense for the construction and main-
tenance of such roads.
Resolved, That we most cordially
join with tfce National Old Trails
Road association in earnestly and
most respectfully asking the presi-
dent of the United States to issue a
proclamation setting apart one day
each year as a national good roads
Resolved, That we tender a vote of*
thanks to the citizens of Tulsa for
the many courtesies shown thesdele-
gate8~to this convention during our
stay in their city, and to the press,
its editorial 6taff and reporters.
Resolved, That we heartily en-
dorse the entlment expressed by Rev.
Abernathy lu that the ministers be
asked and urged to co-operate with
us by preaching good roads sermons.
R*.mlved, That we earnestly roo-
onimeL.d the adoption of the pending
road amendments to the constitution
oi_the state of Missouri, and that we
favor the submission of similar
■amendments in the states of Kausae,
Oklahoma and Arkansas, if upon in-
vestigation it lis found that such
tmendments are necessary to eifhble
such states to accept federal aid. If
Resolved, That we favor the em-
ployment of all state convicts upon
the road work of the state under the
supervision of the state highway
Resolved, That we tender our sin-
cere thanks to Gov. E. W. Major for
his splendid and eloquent address,
and to all the other speakers who
have addressed our convention.
Resolved, That as the narrow
wagon tire is a road destroyer, and
on the other hand the wide tire're-
pairs the roadbed, that we recom-
mend such legislation by the different
