United States Senater Robert L.
Owen went before a joint session of
the Oklahoma assemoly last week,
explained in detail bit proposal to
strip the federal judiciary of its pow-
er to deolare acta of congress uncon-
stitutional, and closed with an appeal
to the legislators and the people of
big home state to uphold his hands
If they believed ha is right.
An audience that taxed every inch
of available seating or standing space
In the house chamber of the new cap-
Itol, listened with * Interest for more
than two hours to the senator's ex-
planation and defense of his plan, fre-
quently Interrupting him with ap-
plause and at times literally shouting
approval of his critiolBm of the power
Bow exercised by the federal judiciary.
Senator Owen told the legislature
that he appeared as the watchman
and paid servant of the people of
Oklahoma In the Interest of what he
considered a matter of the "gravest
importance,” and not in the further-
ance of any personal political ambi-
The question of curtailing the pow-
ers of the Judiciary, the senator said,
would determine whether the suprem-
acy of the sovereignty of the people
ahall prevail, "or whether they shall
he divested of their rights to Ax their
national policy, to determine the laws
for themselves and through their rep-
resentatives, or whether these vital
questions shall be determined by a
majority of the federal court at Wash-
Acts of congress, the senator held,
fixed the national policy, and people
alone were the sole judges of national
policies. Frequently during his re-
marks the senator declared that the
•80,000,000 people of the United States
•were more capable of determining
laws for the nation’^ good than the
nine members of the supreme* court,
n declaration which never failed to
bring forth applause from his hearers.
Senator Owen associated his propo-
sition with legislation to curb monopo-
listic control in the United States,
In this opinion the court dissolved
the trust, upheld the constitutionality
of the anti trust law, but at the same
time wrote Into It the now famous
rule of reason. Since the dissolution
and the application of the reason rule,
Senator Owen showed by figures ob-
tained from a stock reporting bureau
in New York that the assets of the
Standard had Increased by leaps and
hounds, which he said was partly due
to Oklahoma Healdton oil selling at
40 cents a barrel.
What was regarded by members of
the legislature as one of the strongest
points made by the senator In support
of his plan, was the reading of a de-
cision rendered by the United States
supreme court In 1868, in which It
was .expressly stated that the court
had only statutory powers. Ho read
a number of other decisions along the
Stuart Answers Owen.
That the plan of Senator Robert L.
Owen to take from the Huprerne court
the right to pass on the constitution-
ality of the ac ts of congress, If adopt-
ed. would bring about a revolution In
this country was the statement of
Judge C. H. Stuart, Oklahoma City
lawyer, in an address before a joint
eeBslon of the legislature.
Judge Stuart's effort was a defense
«f the judiciary. He characterized
the Owen resolution as being opposed
to the fundamental principles of a
constitutional form of government.
Senate Joint Resolution No. 8 by
McIntosh and Chnse of Seminole of
the senate, and Durant nncl Newman
of the house, providing for the reap-
proprtatlon of unexpended portions of
funds appropriated by the Fifth legis-
lature for the Durant normal school,
was passed on third reading In the
senate after a long argument.
Roth houses have dropped Into the
regular grind of discussing nnd pass-
ing or killing a great number of blits
mostly of no particular consequence

there has been little of Interest In

Administration forces won In the
senate nnd defeated House Sill No.

preme court from $40 to $1B. In the
debate which was the bitterest of this
session Senator Keller of Marietta
declared Hint "the order had ooma
down to kill the bill" nnd taunted hln
opponents with cowardice because they
obeyed "the order." The fee for fil-
ing appeals In the supreme court wta
rained to $40 In the Fifth legislature
as a means of making the supreme
The senate passed finally Senator
Thomas' bill containing provision!
for appointment nnd pay of national
guard officers In conformity with the
national defense act nnd Senator
Vaughn's bill to provida for approval
of school building plans In regard to
heating, lighting and ventilation were
passed. The latter (was amended to
make the district school board nnd
the coupty superintendent advisors
instead of the state superintendent,
as was proposed in the original draft.
Direct election of United States
senators Is provided for In Senate
Bill No. 196 by Snyder. It provides
that senators shall be elected in tho
same way as reprenentatives In con-
gress and provides for the appoint-
ment by the governor to fill a vacancy
If there Is a vacancy when leas than
twelve months of the term Is unex-
pired, and for a special election when
the unexplrefl term la for more (baa
twelve months. .
The fight of EM. Boyle, chief mine,
oil nnd gas inspector, to gain con-
trol of the oil and gas production of
the state, appeared In the house for
the first time when the bill to estab-
lish an oil and gas bureau In connec-
tion with the corporation commission
was taken up. Representative Wlm-
btsh of Ada offered an amendment,
proposing that the bureau be conduct-
ed as a part of the department of the
Representative Durant immediately
objected to the amendment on the
ground that enforcement of the oil
and gas conservation laws had been
made a part of the work of the cor-
poration commission, and that it was
the only department of the state gov-
ernment which had the statutory au-
thority to control oil and gas produc-
Bills passed finally in the house in-
clude those establishing a branch of
the free employment bureau at Wood-
ward; amending the statutes relat-
ing to the time of preliminary exami-
nations of alleged law violators; re-
quiring counties to pay sheriffs for
expense of transporting prisoners and
other persons to and from the peni-
tentiary and other state Institutions;
giving cities the right to pass ordin-
ances requiring the work\ on streets
and alleys; giving the riht to segre-
gate and separate the white and col-

A bill by Representative Durant,
chairman of -the house committee on
appropriations, authorizes official com-
pilation of the records of the proceed-
ings of the constitutional convention,
and makes an aproprlatlon of $10,000
for salaries and expenses of those en-
gaged In the work. Congressman Wil-
liam H. Murray, who was president of
t.lie convention is authorized to do
tho work and to employ the neces-
sary additional assistance. A short
tlmo ago each member of tho legislat-
ure received a letter from Mr. Mur-
ray, saying that unless something
waH done by the legislature to have
the records put In permanent form for
preservation, he would destroy them.
A bill by Representative Eaktn, re-
publican, of Garfield county, provid-
ing for the establishment of a home

and Spanish war veterans, as recom-
mended by Governor Williams, waa
Introduced in the house.
A bill by Representative Platt pro-
vides for a flat registration fee on au-
tomobiles of $6, and a bill by Wald-
rop and Durant provides for the estab-
lishment of a state training sohool for

hibits killing of quail in Oklahoma for

tarium "somewhere" in the northwest
part of the state was nmong several
new hills which were presented In tha
Far Blaetlon af Fallea Chtof.
Election by direct vote of chiefs
of police, municipal judgeH and city
attorneys In cities having a popula-
tion of 26,000 nr more la proposed In
a bill presented by Representative
Butterfield, Oklahoma county. The
purpose of this Is to remove these of-
ficials from the Influence of appoint-
ive power. Another bill by Mr. But-
terfield provides for screening the
smokestacks end exhausts of engines
used In operation of threshing raa-
chinas aa a prevention against fire.
Militiamen Mgy Loss Jabs.
Many members of the state militia
will he jobless when the troops re-
turn next month. Most of tbe officers,
appointed by the governor, held good
situations when tbe call for border
duty was made, and In a majority ot
cases tho positions are either being
held open for them or are being filled
temporarily by other men, who are
working under an agreement to resign
when the troope return.
The privates will not fare so well,
In the opinion of Adjutant General
Earp. When Oklahoma militiamen
were first called to mobilise at Fort
BUI, a large number ot employers pub-
lished the fact that the positions of
any of their employes who Joined any
of the military organisations and went
to the border would be held open for
them until their return. Some even
went so far as to continue tbe em-
ployee’ salaries during such service,
In an effort to encourage recruiting.
Others said they would pay half sal-
aries, others quarters salaries, and
several other offers were made to en-
courage wen end boys to don tha
But some of the employers already
have welched on their promises, and
have notified the men In the gqurd
formerly In their employ that their
positions had been filled.
Others have stopped sending the
monthly pay checks, and some have
cut out the pay checks and still are
holding the positions open.
Furnishing employment to about
1,000 men will be one of the problems
which Oklahoma must solve when the
guardsmen return from the border and
are mustered out here.
Capital Leads In Building.
Only five cities In the United States
exceed Qklahoma City In percentage
gain of building permits issued during
1916. Duluth, Minn., with a gain ot
877 per cent, heads the list of Ameri-
can cities, other leaders being Ta-
coma, ^ Wash., 105 per cent; Fort
Worth; Texas, 82 per cent; New York
City, 82 per cent, and Des Moines,.
Iowa, 81 per cent. Oklahoma' City’s
building permits showed a gain of 78
per cont over these Issued in 1915.
The total here for 1916 was $2,076,484.
Complete returns from 94 principal
oitles in the United States for the
year total $904,071,701, as compared
with $737,989,170 for 1915, an Increase
of 22 per cent of the ninety-four cities,
seventy-four showing gains and only
twenty ?how looses, the latter being
moderate In most instances.

Afraid of Pink Weevil.
That the pink boll weevil whloh has
developed In northern Mexico Is a
very serious menace anM that It event-
ually will reach the United States,
despite all precautions nnd preventa-
tive measures, is the belief of Ed. L.
Ayern of Houston, chief inspector of
orchards and nui'Berlos of the Texas
department of agriculture, who called
upon President F. M. Gault of the
state board of agriculture last week.
Mr. Ayers vlHlted the San Pedro

lenrned that ithe ravages of this new

The everlasting strife between
Armenian and Kurds in the terri-
tory where Russia, Persia and Tur-
key adjoin, is the theme of the Ar-
menian story given here. Its scene
is in the present field of war. It
is from Aharoneau’s tale, "Blaes the
Ox.“ . _
Chsro, the Armenian hunter, cared
for weather aa little aa did the bears
and wolvea that he fought. He Buf-
fered nature's cruelties as stubbornly
aa did the rocks of his native moun-
tains. His continual strife, hta con-
tinual shedding of blood, had given
him not only the courage of • beast
of prey but the silence of one.
Silent and unsmiling, he brought his
trophies to the village. Silent and
unsmiling, he bore them past the ad-
miring people. Silent and unsmiling,
But one day he entered the village
smiling. On his back was a strange,
a horrible burden. It was not a dead
wild beast, but prey henvtor and far
more noble. And Chsro smiled under
this burden. With a terrible, fatal
smile Chsro smiled as he stooped be-
neath the body of his only son.
"See Chsro's trophy I” he cried, when
the villagers gathered. “Whose prey
Is thlsT It Is the prey of tbe Kurds!
I hunt wild beasts 1 They hunt Ar-
The son had been killed by Knrdlsh
raiders while he was trying to defend
from them tbe pair of oxen with which
he had been plowing.
And Chsro went back to hla moun-
tains and lay In wait—but not for ani-
mals. He did not turn bis steps home-
ward again until he had drunk out of
his hollowed hand the blood of the
Kurds who had slain his son.
When he re-entered the village the
neighbors clamored that It bad been
raided In his absence and that his
daughter and his son’s widow had been
carried off. Chsro listened. Without
a word or a sob, he listened, turned
away, and dlaappeared.
After many days he came back and
did something that struck the village
dumb. He gathered his possessions,
piled them In his house and set all on
fire. When the last glowing rafter bad
fallen, be took his little grandson
Trumo by the hand and went away.
Nonet of the village ever saw him
again, but before many days they
loarnedgof the terrible deed that the
Iron man had done previously to burn-
ing his house. He had crept to the
Kurdish stronghold and had stabbed
the two captured women to death, that
the outrage to his family honor might
vanish from the earth.
Chsro and his little Thurao wan-
dered, clinging to existence by every
means that misery could devise. As
they went on, begging, starving, frees-
Ing, the old hunter's mind became sick.
Thumo's great, blue eyes made him
shudder; for they were the eyes of
hlB unhappy mother, whose Innocent
blood hud poured dreadfully over the
hunter’s hand when be stabbed her.
He began to forget why he bad slpln
bis dear ones. Only the horror, the
heartlessness of his deed survived in
his memory. He suffered dim tor-
ments Jut day. Vivid phantoms tor-
tured lififti at night. If It had not been
that he must remain alive to care for
little Thumo, bis practiced hand
would have sent the steel Into his own
throat, and he would have gone to Qod
to tell his tale—such a tale, thought
old Chsro sobbing, that heaven would
shudder, the angels would wall and tho
splendid stars lose light.
Weary, wiBtched and ragged, they
came at Inst Into a town where there
was a huzunr. Chsro and Thumo sut
down against a wall to get the warmth
of a meager sun. Suddenly the old
man, looking at the busy market
scene, begnn to weep.
Little Thumo looked In the direction
of his grandfather’s gaze. He saw a
Kurd with a beautiful ox.
"Illaes, grandfather, our Blaes I"
screamed the child. He ran to the ox
und began to kiss the broad forehead
between the soft, gentle eyes.
-The Kurd, suspecting Instantly that
"esc must be the previous owners of
the nnhiml, tried to drive It away;
but the child clung to the great, silken
ear, and the powerful brute stood ob-
stlnntety still, seeking Thumo’s cheek
with his muzzle.
"It Is not thine l" said the Kurd
softly. "My life on It! Como, child,
and let him go t"
Ho tried to loose the hoy's hold on
tho ox. "Grumlfathor I Grandfather I"
A crowd hud gathered. Chsro eould
got sen what was happening. He could
only hear his grandchild scream. In-
stant fury seized him. He sprang up,
broke through the crowd, nnd leaped
at the Kurd, gripping his thrnut.
The Kurd struggled, lie lore tho
hqlr from Ohiro's head. But the nerv-
ous old hands were as Iron rings, nnd
with a hoarse growl tjie Armenian's
fingernails dug deeply, deeply.
The bystanders tried to pull him off,

As the two wrestled, breast to braast,
panting, Chsro looked like a shaggy
beast that has torn Its prey and Is

At last the police arrived and tore
him from the fainting Kurd, who hard-
ly waited to revive before be hurried
to get away with hla ox.
The guards led Chsro toward Jail.
Thnmo, crying, ran after the beloved
ox. Then be turned and trotted after
the beloved grandfather. He clutched
the old man’s ruga and screamed,
"Blaes, grandfather, Blaes I"
The old man went on with the po-
lice, silently. The child turned and
ran after the ox again. Again he
turned to follow his grandfather.
Thus he ran from one to the other till1
he realized that the distance between
the two beloved objects was growing
too great. Then he cried bitterly and
pursued the old man.
But before be could reach him, hla
grandfather disappeared behind a
great door, that closed with a loud
reverberation. The child beat at the
Iron-studded thing, scratched It,
stamped with his feet, and Implored.
It was In vain.
Exhausted, he sat down at the pris-

Modem Armenian literature hae

tity or achievement to 'Command a
prominent position in the popular
regard of western nations. It hae
been sparingly translated into Eng-
lish and somewhat more extensively
into German. Awelis Aharoneau,
the author of this story, is probably
the most popular Armenian writer
today. He woe bom in I860 in

MISTOOK HUNTER FOR STUMP
Nimrod's Peculiar Experience With •

Companion reader, in a backwoods
region, where game 'was very plentl-
fuL One afternoon in t|>e hunting sea-
son I made my way to'a small valley
about u mile from the settlement,
down which ran u well-beaten deer
I took my post on a small bill that
commanded a good view of tbe valley.
In front of me, and about 12 feet dis-
tant, was a large pine tree; behind me
was an old stump. As the evening
was cool, I wore a gray sweater, and
my hat was also gray.
After watting for nearly an hour, I
noticed u movement In a small clump
of bushes to my right Then the horns
and head of a large buck appeared,
but he drew back before I had a
cliunce to fire. With rifle cocked and
finger on the trigger, I crouched, wait-
ing for him to show himself again,
A squirrel chattered sharply from
the stump behind. Then be landed
squnrely on the top of my head, from
which he sprang to the tree. Imme-
diately after I was thrown violently
forward on my face by some heavy
object that descended with great force
on my. back. The blow almost drove
the breuth from my body. vMy rifle
was discharged as I fell.
Very much surprised and consider-
ably alarmed, I scrambled to my feet,
but nothing living was In sight. I
peered behind stumps and fallea logs;
more mystified every moment. No owl
swooping down upon the squirrel
could have inflicted such a blow, neith-
er had any Umb /alien from the tree,
I looked up among the thick foliage,
but there was nothing te be seen. 1
walked round to the other side of the
tree. On s large bough, but well hid-
den, I discerned a dim, gray shupe. It
was a full-grown lynx. I brought him
down by a well-directed shot.
Now I understood tho situation. Near
the stump on which tho squirrel had
been sitting lay n large log. Behind
this the lynx hnd crept on his prey.
In escaping, the little animal bad
leaped to my head, nnd thence to the
tree, Ills enemy had followed him,
nnd he must have been nilghtlty sur-
prised at landing on a man, and also
by the report of my rifle.
Naturally I saw nothing more of the
deer, but was richer by a fine lynx
