THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF HASKELL COUNTY
THAT FAKE REHEARING.
The dispatch from Washington to
the effect that no application for a
rehearing in the Oklahoma state
capital case has been filed with the
V. S. Supreme court emphasizes the
trickery which Oklahoma City is try-
ing to work on the people of this
state. Of course, some of the peo-
ple of Oklahoma' have known all
along that the men behind the lo-
cation of the state capitol at Okla-
homa City never did intend to put
up the money with which to erect a
capitol building. With most of the
peop!e, however, this is not the
case. It is safe to say that lia'f the
people of the state thought the
Oklahoma City real estate boosters 1
were really going to build a capitol I
building valued at a million and !
raise the money in that town to pay
the bill .
A few days ago one of the most
prominent lawyers of the state and
who resides in Muskogee was in Ok-
lahoma City and jokingly asked one
of the chief boosters when the peo-
ple of that city were going to pay
in the first twenty-five thousand
dollars and when they expected to
build the capitol.
"Well,," said this gentleman, "it's
this way. We have two reasons for
not paying in that twenty-five thous-
and at this time. One is that we
can't d0 it and the other is that we
do not have to do under our con-
tract. We could not raise twenty-
five thousand in this city if all our !
lives depended upon it. We can
raise, however, one hundred dollars.
I understand that some lawyer has
asked the supreme court for a re.
hearing. He will do that for a check
for one hundred dollars. That's not
hard to raise. Of course if some
fool lawyer (for a hundred) filed a
motion to reopen the case we can-
not be expected to pay in the twen-
ty-five thousand. And remember it's
easier to raise the hundred than the I
This man, who was a member of
the bunch which worked for the lo-
cation of the capitol at Oklahoma
City, was just joking, but one who
knows the real intentions of the
Oklahoma City bunch can not but
feel humor is akin to truth and in
this case a real sister.
While these gentlemen were talk-
ing in the lobby of the Lee hotel,
Hon. Lon Frame, a member of the
board of affairs and therefore a
member of the capitol commission,
came up. Joining into the conver-
sation he said that about the time
the capitol building is completed a
stranger in the lobby of the Lee
some day wl.l ask, "Who is that
wrinkled, sawed.ofT, old fossjl over
there," and he will be informed that
that man is "Old Lon Frame, jvho
waB a member of the first board to
undertake the erection of the state
capitol building." And Frame was
probably telling a true joke.
Oklahoma City is now attempting
to raise the first payment on the cap-
itol debt and will undoubtedly raise
a few payments but none of her
leading men seriously expect that
city to raise the money with which
to complete the building or ever
make a good start on it. Its the
fixed purpose of the Oklahoma City
boosters to ask the next legislature
to make an appropriation of a mil-
lion or so to build the capitol. The
people of the state ought to be
awake on this point and make it
plain to their representatives that if
they vote for such an appropriation
there will be no place for them to
call home when their term is out.
The representative who supports a
bill to assume the burden of build-
ing the capitol after the pledges Ok-
lahoma City has made and expense
she has put the state tcf will deserve
a mighty hot welcome when he gets

VERDICT NEXT WEEK.
Chicago, July 11.—Final argu-
ments in the trial of Evelyn Arthur
See, head of the "Absolute Life
Cult," were resumed before Judge
Honore today by Assistant State's
Attorney Burnham. His summing
up of the case has been so lengthy
that it is believed the case will not
go to the jury for several days.
Burnham s speech has been charac-
terized by vitrolic denunciations of
See and his alleged free love meth-
ods, by which he made affinities of
his women followers.

AN EXPERTS ADVICE TO OKLA-
"If the farmers of Oklahoma'will
plant kaffir corn, milo.maize and su-
gar cane at once, there will be no
need tp import a ton of feed for the
[state's livestock next year.
"There is also time for two more
cuttings of alfalfa, assured by Sun-
day's timely rains.
"While in some parts of the state
a reduced corn crop may yet be rais-
ed, it will be better judgment to
plant these other grains.
"I would not advise the planting of
a second crop of potatoes. Suitable
seed is almost impossible t0 get.
"In addition to the feed crops, tur-
nips will be the farmer's one best bet.
If planted now, a crop of 100 bushels
to the acre should be ready in Sep-
tember:.''—John Fields, editor Okla-
homa Farm Journal.

M'ALUSTER HAS HOPES.
Washington, D. C., July 11.— In
response to a communication from
prominent citizens of McAlester,
Secretary of the interior Fisher has
agreed to give a hearing to a dele-
gation from that city at which
reasons for the establishment of an
additional Indian agency there, with
George^ Wright, of Muskogee in
charge, will be advanced. Senator
Owen's attitude in declining to come
to the assistance of Muskogee in the
efforts of that city to retain t e
offices of the commission to the
Five Civilized Tribes has given
fresh encouragement to the McAles-
ter forces, who intend leaving no
stone unturned in landing tl.e head-
quarters for Mr. Wright.

WATER .V. A GLASS IX Tl'LSA.
The city of Tulsa'is the latest Ok-
lahoma municipality to kick in with
a report of a drouth that has endan-
gered the city's water supply which,
although it never was very fine In
quality, was always thought ample
for the city's needs.
A prominent oil men of Tulsa
and Bart'esville states that a drink
of water cannot be had in Tulsa
without the expenditure pf five
cents a glass. Water for booking
(purposes cost five cents a gallon
,and the entire available "gallonage"

j Oklahoma City, Okla., July 10.
J Governor Cruce is receiving appeals
from farmers in the southwest coun-
ties declaring that they are on the
verge of starvation. Crops are burnt
up, cyclones devastated some sec-
tions and the entire southwest cor-
ner of the state is in a critical con-
dition. They will vote bonds in
Comanche county to give the farm-
ers work on the roads.
Paradoxically speaking, it tages
less money to get ahead than it does

feels conscious of having beat his
