Gentlemen: I noticed In the an-
i (uncement of Dr. J. M. Byrum fo-
re-election as a member of the board
of education from the Sixth ward,
among other reasons given by him
why the voters and taxpayers ought
to vote for him in the primary elec-
tion was the record he had made
i during the time he has been a mem-
. ber of the board, and he also in-
vited an investigation of his acts
as such member.
■ As 1 was his opponent and also
;i taxpayer in said ward and cltj
and deeming it material, on Marc!
1914, I addressed to JJr. Byrum
a letter which was delivered to him
' in person and read as follows:
"March 9, 1914
Or. .1. M. Byrum, Secretary Board
of Education, Shawnee, Okla.
"Dear Sir: Please send me by
registered mail copies of all bids or
price of school sites offered for sal
to the board of education In Ward
in the town of Shawnee in the year
1911, marking on the one accepted
by the board the words, 'Accepted
by the board.'
"I am asking this for my infor-
mation as well as for tin- citizens
oi Shawnee. 1 shall expect this b>
an early mail, not later than
Wednesday, tin- 11th. of this week.
A register fee of 12 cents, including
postage, is herewith enclosed for
reply Yours very truly,
"J. L. MOORE."
Up to this hour Dr. Byrum has
not seen fit to send me the informa-
tion requested and I therefore made
as accurate an inquiry concerning
this property purchased In our ward
by Dr. Byrum and the school board
as possible, and submit it herewith
to you for your consideration.
The property purchased consisted
of fourteen lots on North Market
street, for which the board of edu-^
cation paid $2800. Within about
sixty days prior to that date these
I lots were traded off by the former
I owner to the mun who sold them to
the board of education, for $700, or
J2 a foot. That board of education
paid 'a foot.
At me time this deal was made
there \\;ts on file , with the bourd of
j e<t mi a bid for a good, level
• site on Park street, one block west
of the she they purchased, for $4
a fool. I submit to the voters and
taxpayers of the ward that good
I business judgment was not used
when $8 a foot was paid by the
, board of education for property of
less value than that which they were
offered for $4 a foot.
It does not seem possible that
within sixty days this particular
piece of property could advance
from $2 a foot to $8 a foot, yet from
the facts and records it appears
that Dr. Byrum. as a member of
the board, thought such an advance
in value was had, or surely he would
not have assented to this purchase.
We all know that no such advance
took place, and the interests of the
taxpayers certainly were not well
guarded when this purchase was
made. •
If I am elected a member of the
board of education I promise you
that no other sites will be bought
and that no other financial transac-
tions of this kind will be permitted
to go through, even if it has to bo
stopped by some proceeding other
than my vote and protest before the
1 respectfully- submit the above
facts concerning the purchase of this
site and ask that the same be care
fully considered and investigated be-
fore you vote. 1 am, yours very re-
t nect fully.

Secretary of Agriculture Has Been Di-
recting Search for Information
Along a Dozen Lines—Ad-
vice of Daniels.
Washington.-—The senate of the
United States has iu its keeping a bill
Introduced by Senator Fletcher of
Florida which la intended to give
linancial relief to farming communi-
ties The same bill has been intro-
duced in the house by Representative
Moss of Indiana. The measure, it Is
said, h;.s the bucking of the adminis-
Set retary of Agriculture Houston, it
is said, is of a mind to try to induce
the president to ask congress to post-
pone action on rural credits for some
little time. If rural credits are taken
up this year congress may i.« well
;ay "goodby" to a June adjournment.
The secretary of agriculture, who is
6Upj>osed to know much more than the
president about rural conditions, is
said to desire that the farmers shall
b * given time to acquaint themselves
with certain things before the new
financial scheme Is put into operation.
For some months the .secretary has
been directing the work of investiga-
tion In the field of high prices for
things necessary to life. It is said
he believes the farms can be made to
produce three or four times as much
a* they are producing now, although
it is understood some of the men who
have been looking into the matter for
him think a doubling up of product-
iveness is about us much as can be

into matters of Co operative societies

be had before any kind of banking
arrangements are made intended ape
cifically to benefit the agriculturists.
In the natural order of things the ru
ral credit legislation should have fol-
lowed currency legislation
Daniels, Too, Hm View*.
While the president wants congress
to consider one thing at a time, the
limitation Ib enforced only to the
point of controlling legislation which
is Up for passage Members of both
houses of congress already are at
work on the rujjal credit matter. Sec
retary Daniels, although he is sup-
posed to confine his field of action to
the oceans and the ships, has beeu
giving advice on his own account in
the matter of rural credits. It was
Mr. Daniels' idea that as soon as the
currency bill was passed ready money
would be In the farmers' sight. It
wus evident from the speech which he
made in the west not long ago that
he expected trust control to follow
farmers* credit legislation.
Secretary Daniels has been drawing
fine pictures of what rural credit leg-
islation is going to do for the farm
era. Secretary Houston, whose right
it is to direct in such matters, it is
said, does not believe the farmer is
yet ready to^take advautage fully and
intelligently 'of the legislation which
it is intended to enact in his behalf.
It makes little difference, however,
what cabinet officers' views are on
the subject, it is a fact that other
congressmen than those whose bills
are iu already are preparing farmer
credit measures.
Several Systems Studied.
There are just as many views on ru-
ral credit legislation as there were on
currency legislation. The t*o things
are more than first cousins. A com-
mission went abroad to study a
scheme for giving the farmers what
may be called ready money relief;
Mr. Houston has had investigators iu
the home lields ana a sub-committe of
the banking and currency committee
has been looking about for facts
When the American congressional
commission was iu Kurope digging
into the rural credit subject it studied
several systems. There is a co-opera-
tive plan which has its adherents.
Through the farmers' co-operative so-
cieties based upon a plan which has
beeu outlined In congress the indi-
vidual membefs could burrow money
through the organization to which
they belong. Some members of con-
gress sav that a system of this kind
would run the danger of falling into
the hands of "Wall street financiers."
One of the plans suggested is that
the government itself shall accept the
farmers' mortgages and on this aecur
Ity issue bonds "the proceeds from the
sale of which could be furnished to
the mortgage givers at a maximum
interest rate of 4*4 per cent.''
Members of cougress are confused
over this farmer credit system and
so presumably are most of the lay-
men of the land. Secretary Houston,
it is said, knows the general lack of
understanding of the whole thing and
the sharp differences of opinion where
there is some real knowledge on the
subject. It la pretty well known that
he wants the legislation on the sub-
ject postponed, and It Is more than
suspected In Washington that he may
enter quiet objection to the president's
plan to ask congress to legislate In
the matter as soon as ths trust bills
are out of the way.
