you can institute such action you

made and created by law as a repre

FERRIS WINS FOR
OKI A H O H A REPRESENTATIVE
AXD COLLEAGUES MAKE
STRIKE FOR FARMERS.
Special to The News-Herald.
Washington, April 29.—"When the
solid phalanx of good roads advo-
vates, in which were Representative
Scott Ferris and other members of
the Oklahoma delegation, moved
down on the house, and voted favor-
ably to the special rule making jt
possible to attach a rider to the gen-
eral appropriation bill providing for
federal aid in the development of
highways, a great blow wae struck
in behalf of the farmers of the
With government aid, the post
roads of the country will be devel-
oped to such an extent that the farm-
ers will be brought In closer touch
with the markets, their social life
will be improved and better educa-
tional facilities offered to their chil-
dren. Representative Ferris long
long fought in the house for good
roads legislation and to him as much
as any other man in the house, can
be given the credit of victory.
Mr. Ferris answered the opponents
of the good roads plan who have al-
leged legislation for federal aid
would be udconstitutional, by point-
ing out that the American congress,
March 14, 1819, passed a resolution
declaring that congress has power o
establish poet roads that highway
Improvement was a pledge of the
democrats in the last national plat-
form. He also showed that the gov-
ernment had granted 159,125,734 acres
of public domain to the railroads of
the country, which valued at $10 an
acre would be an amount aggregating
$1,591,257,340 if appropriated from
the treasury. He showed also that
the nation had expended nearly a
billion dollars for waterways, but
the highways of the country, which
were most needed had been neg-
It is practically certain at this ses-
sion of congress, a bill will be
passed to abolish gambling in farm
products. This no doubt will be a
source of gratification to Represen-
tative Ferris, who was one of tho
first to introduce a bill in congress
providing for the abolishment of
tracing in futures. Mr. Ferris's first
speech against the system was made
in 1908 in the house and he ha3
'been hammering ever since. At first
it was considered that legislation of
the sort never would be acted on
favorably, but it seems that the Ok-
lahoman's prediction that eventually
the national lawmakers would 6tand
with him, is destined to come true.
The measure providing for an ex-
tension of payments to the purchas-
ers of lands in Stephens, Grady, Cad-
do, Kiowa, Comanche, Tillman and
Jefferson counties has been passed
by congress and now is a law. Owing
to droughts for the past three years
the majority of over three thousanl
purchasers, have been unable to
make their payments, three exten-
of those prisoners as desire to go to
A petition from purchasers of the
Choctaw and Chickasaw unallotted
lands of about 1,500,000 acres, asking
that an extension of time be granted
for remaining payments, has been
filed with the department of interior
by Representative Ferris. The de-
partment has posted notice, that the
remaining payments are due Decem-
ber 1, but it is desired that these
be divided into four annual install-
ments. Representative Ferris will
make a strong effort to gain the ex-
sion, but if department officials re-
fuse, he then wil' introduce a bill *n
congress looking to this end and will
seek its passage at this session.

JUDGE POK RULES THAT SO-LEGS
ISLAND IS PROPERTY OF
Pawnee, Okla., April 27.—In a de-
cision handed down by Judge L. M
Poe in the district court here tho
Arkansas river ia held to be not a
navigable stream and the federal
and state claims to ownership of the
river bed is refuted.
The case involved the ownership
of a tract of land in the river toed,
covering an area of 84 acres, known
as the Larry No-Legs island, and
located near Ralston.
The decision places the ownership
in W. H. Kdmonstan, a squatter, and
H. A. Thomas, a Pawnee countv
homesteader, who claims a part of
the tract as belonging to his home-
stead, filed on when the "Cherokee
Strip" was opened to white settle-
ment in 1893.
Because it is underlaid with rich
oil deposits this tract is estimated
value at $500,000.
As today's decision conflicts with
that recently rendered by Judge Cot-
teral of the federal court at Guthrie
i decision by the United States su-
preme court will be necessary to ' i
nally determine the ownership.
