and four delegates at lijfge from each state.
Since that time the basis has not been changed, ex-
cept to allow delegates J* territories.
Of course very few southern states took advant-
age of the opportunity, but in the convention of 18O0
there were delegates from Kentucky, Maryland, .Mis-
souri, Texas and Virginia, the two latter being the
jnly true southerners.
In that convention Virginia voted eight votes for
Seward and fourteen for Lincoln. Texas votefl six

IRRIGATION IN OKLAHOMA.
Jti some sections of Oklahoma the people are awak-
ening to the fact that irrigation plants can be ope
ated here as successfully as anywhere else. 'I'
greatest advance in this line has been made in the
Southwestern part of the state. Running streams and
reservoirs are both being utilized. It is not neces-
sary that a stream or a reservoir be located higher
than the land to be irrigated. Modern pumping
machinery and power plants are so efficient, and! are
sold at such reasonable prices that it i* possible to
equip an outfit of sufficient capacity to raise water
twenty, thirty or fifty feet in large quantities, and at
a cost which is small when compared to the benefit:
There are thousands of streams in ((klahoma whicl
are capable of furnishing all the water that is needed
for paying irrigation projects. There are thousands
of places where, with a small outlay for a (lain, great
quantities of storm waters can be stored, and pump
ed out and used as needed.
One acre irrigated is .mirth several that are not,
taking the average of the seasons.
The Kansas wheat crop is officially estimated at
eighty-five million bushels, which is thirty-five mil
lion bushels more than last year.
The Eagle is repeatedly asked whv it pays so little
attention to attacks and slurs upon it by other local
newspapers, particularly the News. The simple an-
swer is that life is too short. The Eagle is accus-
tomed to boys. And then, the
people understaltd. I'oP^TITStnnce, the News this'
morning, in concluding an .article on the subject of
taxation, in which it quoted wrong figures, said;
"This is the assessment defended by the Eagle as
wise and just. Every sane man knows that it is un-
just discrimination against industrial and commer-
cial enterprises and in favor of real estate. It is al-
so unjust discrimination against the home owner and
in favor of the owner of good revenue-producing
business property." That's a sample. Of course the
News knew that the reduction in real estate applied
to the homes as well as to business property, and
that there was no discrimination against/the homes,
hut of course that made no difference—to the News.
So many false statements, so many juggled figures,
have apepared in the News that the public is justifies
in its attitude of indifference to anything it prints.

Notwithstanding the present outlook, be careful
of your political predictions.
It is generally conceded that the Enid court yard is
about the most beautiful ^|>ot in the state. It was
the most unsightly spot for eighteen years.
The hound dog is entitled to a long rest now. The
way he was kicked around was scandalous.
The Clark fellows are sore because precedent was
not followed and Champ given the nomination after
he had secured a majority in the Democratic conven-
tion. Wilson released his delegates, but they would
not leave him. I'retty good kind of delegates.
Champ Clark is to be congratulated for his fore-
thought in filing for otigit'sman again. After ;ili,
the chances are that it was but an empty honor he was

Monday with $99,360,000 in its steel-ribbed vault as
a working balance. This is the largest amount of
available cash the government has ' possessed for
months. The receipts for the year amounted to $691,-
140,000, as compared with $701,372,000,000 for the
fiscal year 1911. The total disbursements of the year
just closed reached $654,805,000, against $654,138,000
the year when the surplus was $46,234,000. The tax
011 corporations included $28,584,000, as compared
with $33,517,000 in 1911. The total amount in the
general fund of the treasury Monday was $166,264,-

The discussion of the basis of representation in the
Republican national convention often brings out the
question of why it was fixed as it is—two delegates
for each senator and member of congress, regardless
of the Republican votes cast in 'state or district.
The call of the first Republican convention, that of
1856, was issued on the 29th day of March, of that
year. It called for a convention of all people opposed
to the repeal of the Missouri compromise and the ex-
tension of slavery, to meet at Philadelphia 011 the 17th
of June, to select candidates for president and vice-
president, the basis to be three delegates from each
congressional district and six at large from each

nominated Lincoln at Chicago in i860, fixed the rep-
According to the 11 emet, California, News, the
people of that vicinity have allowed themselves to be
faked out of $4,000 by an alleged rain-maker named
Hatfield. "Mr. Hatfield," says the News, "has trav-
eled over the valley collecting the amounts due him
which aggregate $4,000."
Of course, Mr. Hatfield never made rain. But he
wheedled the people into signing contracts, under
which he agreed to deliver four inches of rain before
May 1st—and collected the money, because rain hap
pencd to fall.
During January and February Mr. Hatfield "work
1.," the San Joaquju Valley, California, claiming to
be able to make rajn. Rain did not happen to fall,
and he went away, saying that his chemicals were
old. A few days after his departure generous rain-
fell. Had he kept at it, he might have collected 011

Hatfield commenced his operations for the pur
pose of making rain in the vicinity of Ilemet 011
March 5th. Rain began before he did 011 March 1st,
continued 011 the 2nd and more fell on the 5th and
following days. Hatfield quit on May 1st, and rain
fell on the 7th and 8th. >
Professor A. G. McAdie of the San Francisco of
fice of the weather bureau sums up the matter as fol-
"There is 110 evidence that there have been any
genuine rain-making experiments. There is no evi-
dence that the so-called experiments of Hatfield have
had any relation to rainfall. In 110 instance did the
rain fall at the point of his experimentation, so-called,
and not fall at many points many miles distant. No
heavier precipation occurred, notwithstanding the
rain-maker's claims, than does regularly occur o\\ ing
to differences in elevation. Nearly every statement
made by the rainmaker regarding his experiments
has been contradicted by the official records.

In speaking of trusts a vlgorciis
enforcement of the pres ent anti-
trust laws is urged while legisla-
tion to make it impossible for any
private monolopy to exist in the
United States is promised.
The protection of the national
unllorin is urged in a paragraph
that says, "We recommend to tb?
s everal states the legislation of
a law making It an offense for the
proprietors of places of public
amusement and entertainment to
discriminate against the uniform
of the Uuited States, similar to
the law passed by congress appli
cable to the District of Columbia
and the territories in 1911."
Tlio platform lias this to say
about the rule of the people:
"We call attenlon to the fact
That the Democratic Party's de-
mand for a return to the rule ot
the people expressed In the na-
tional platform four years ago has
uow become the accepted doctrine
of a large majority of the electors.
We again remind the country that
only by the larger exercUe of the
reserve power of the people can
they protect themselves from the
mlBtise of the delegated power and
usurpat Ion of govermontal instru-
mentality by special interest, For
this reason the national conven-
tion insisted upon the overthrow
of Canuonism and an inauguration
or a system by which United StateB
senators could ba electedyby direct
vote. The Democratic party offers
Itself to the country as an agency
through which the complete over-
throw and exterpation of abrup-
tion, fraud and machine rule In
American politics can be affectert."
In conclusion the -platform Is d<
clared to be one of the eBsetials
to our national welfare. "Our
