A. H. T. A. MEET
HERE NEXT YEAR
About the happiest man in Chand-
ler last week was W. A. Flynt who,
with Wm. Lillibridge, Brack Tutt,
John Litleton, W. A. Shoop and
a few other boosters from this coun-
ty, proceeded to McAlester as dele-
gates to the state convention of the
A. H. T. A. and acptured the meet-
ing for Chandler for the next an-
nual meeting which will be held dur-
ing the month of October.
W. A. Flynt is the president of
the Chandler lodge and he went
armed with an invitation from the
commercial club and from the may-
or of the city to the A. H. T. A. to
hold the next meeting at Chandler.
In entering the fight our delega-
tion had opposition worthy of the ef-
forts of any band of boosters. Okla-
homa City, Guthrie, Sulphur, and
Pawnee were in the race and they
were all backed with all sorts of in-
ducements, but “Uncle Bill,'’ one of
the jelliest boosters that ever came
down the pike, backed by such sub-
stantial men as Littlebridge, Tutt,
Littleton and Shoop won a glorious
victory and landed with votes to
The first ballot resulted in Chand-
ler getting 107, Guthrie 81, and Ok-
lahoma City 70 votes. Other places
received a scattering vote and
Chandler and Guthrie, the two high-
est, were ballotted for again, all
other names being dropped under
the rule. The second ballot resulted
in Chandler getting 156 votes and
This meeting means that about
one thousand members of the A. H.
T. A. will meet here next yea: and
sample the hospitality of our <i.y.
This is a meeting that any .own
should feel honored to entertain as
it is composed of the best fa tiers
and business men of the state.
in their fight to secure the meet-
ing, both Oklahoma City and Guth-
rie tried to make it appear that
Chandler could not entertain so
large a crowd as attends these meet-
ings. But Mr. Flynt explained that
while our hotel accommodations
were not sufficient to house 1000
men, that our people were of the
hospitable kind that would open our
homes and see that they were pro-
vided with food and shelter. Chand-
ler will stand by “Uncle Bill” and
as we have a whole year to prepare
for the meeting, we will give them
the heartiest welcome and the best
entertainment they have ever receiv-
ed and now, let us prepare, not the
week befor the meeting, but from
this time till the meeting.
James Kirkwood, the veteran
president, who has given the best
part of his life to law enforcement
and who has been a pillar of
strength to that organization that
has been a terror to thieves, refused
to serve as president any longer, and
Ben Young, a tried and true Anti,
was elected president. President
Young resides at Bristow.
C. O. Liston, of ‘ Edmond was
elected secretary, in fact he has been
secretary to the time when the mind
of man runneth not to the contrary
and his reelection shows better than
words to what extent his work is
esteemed by the lodge.
J. M. Littleton, our John, was re-
elected as treasurer. The lodge as
well as the citizenship of the county,
is proud of John. We predict that,
he will be a factor in helping make
the next meeting a success.

The Weird Wonder W'orker.
It is Impossible for us to describe
the miraculous and fascinating work
of this truly great artist. Press and
public are unstinted in their praise
of Shungopavi. He merits all the
good things that can be said of him.
His legends, folklore and stories
of his people are fascinationg in the
extreme, while his feats of Indian
magic, i. e.: “The Painted Sands of
the Great White Desert," and “The
Vanishing Indian," are wonderful
The Story of Shungopavi.
Shungopavi, whose name signifies
“the land of the beautiful reeds," is
a descendant of the “Cliff Dwellers,” |
prehistoric man. Noted for his learn- J
ing, this red man is the most inter- j
esting member of the rapidly disap-
pearing race in the United States to- I
day. He is renowned among all
American Indians, a brililant scholar, \
humorist and wit, and a wonder- j
worker second to none in the world, j
On his appearance at the St. Louis j
exposition the daily papers and mag- j
azines throughout the country de-
voted columns to this most interest- j
ing man. Reporters and photogra-
phers were constantly seeking inter-
views and sittings. Shungopavi j
To the Honorable Mayor and City Council:
Gentlemen:—Several months ago the citizens of Cliandlcr, by
almost a unanimous vote, provided.for an issue of bonds with
which to construct a sanitary sewerage system.
The desire for sewerage had resulted from almost unhearahle
coiulitoiis winch then existed and which lias since become worse.
In voting for the bonds the citizens of this city did their sole
duty toward securing sewerage. They can do nothing more. They
have committed the enterprise to your lumds. Upon you rests the
success or failure of sewerage and upon sewerage rests not only
growth and prosperity of Chandler, but the very health and lives of
Your administration started with some splendid financial of-
fers on the bonds but a bad market developed before the sale could
At last the bonds were sold hut an unfortunate accident in
which it is believed that the express company is liable, rendered the
bonds valueless and compelled them to be reprinted.
Every informed citizen of Chandler understands that, measured
by market value, the bonds are not worth as much as they were when
fii'st issued, by several hundred ilollaiw.
We believe we voice the sentiment of Chandler when we say,
“Go ahead, sell the bonds, make the best possible bargain but make
it quickly, anil—Fut in the sewerage.”
File suit against the express company for the dil'feivnce between
what you get for the bonds and what you sold them for plus the ex
penses incurred and accrued interest, collect judgment If you can,
but—But in the sewerage.
We desire to call your attention to the fact, that since the time
since the bond election, woolen goods are higher, but the people of
Chandler still clothe themselves. Leather is more expensive but we
still buy shoes.. Corn and wheat are more expensive, but we still eat

LYNCH DRUG CO.
Guthrie, Nov. 1, 1909.
A suit was recently filed in the
supreme court to test the relative
rights of the state board of agricul-
ture and the state board of public
affairs. It came up over the refusal
of State Auditor M. E. Trapp to aud-
it the account of the Cook Construc-
tion company which company was
erecting a building at the A. & M.
college under a contract from the
state board of agriculture. Although
the board of public affairs had made
no effort to control this building it
was thought best to have the su-
preme court settle the matter once
Tills morning the supreme court
handed down a decision affirming
the lower court which had already
decided that the state board of agri-
culture had entire control in these
matters and that the law creating the
slate board of public affairs was void
in so far as it conflicted with the con-
stitution wherein control was given
to the board of agriculture. The fol-
lowing is the syllabus of the case:
1. Section 31 of article 6, page
203, Snyder’s Constituion, providing
that the board of agriculture therein
created shall be the board of regents
of the state agricultural and mechan-
ical college, and “shall discharge
such other duties * * * as may
be provided by law," vests the said
board of agriculture with the same
bower, jurisdiction, and authority,
that was possessed by the board of
regents of the agrieultural and me-
chanical college at the time of the
adoption of the constitution.
2. That portion of article 1, chap-
ter 37, page 563, of the session laws
of Oklahoma, 1909, defining the
duties of the state board of affairs
so far as it attempts to confer upon
the board of public affairs the powers
and duties vested in the board of re-
gents of the state agricultural and
mechanical college as the same were
conferred by the constitution, is void.
3. A thing within the intent of a
constitutional enactment is, for all
purposes, to be regarded within the
words and terms of the constitution,
and legislative enactment, evading
the terms and clearly expressed or
necessarily implied purposes of the
constituiton is as clearly void as if
in express terms forbidden.
