New Federal Liquor Law.
On the first day of the year a drastic
federal law governing the interstate
shipment of liquor went into effect.

The primary argument urged in be

Public benefactions in large sums

Possibilities of the Corn Crop.
The average yield of corn in the
United States Is between 25 and 30
bushels per acre. A boy in South Car
olina last summer raised 152 bush
els on an acre, a boy in Mississippi
raised 147 bushels on an acre, and a
boy In Arkansas 122 bushel3. For
these remarkable achievements the
secretary of agriculture has given the
three boys diplomas for special pro
ficiency in agricultural pursuits. These
diplomas, says Secretary Wilson, are
unique, as no boys ever before received-
similar recognition. These boys
nave, in fact, performed a notable
service to their respective states by
.the demonstration. They have shown
that the cotton states can by skillful
cultivation produce enormous yield3 of
corn, and corn Is a crop they should
A good corn crop means much to any
state or country in the way of bread
and meat and live stock. The results
accomplished by these three boys may
have the effect of encouraging the cot
ton planters to raise more corn, for
which their soil and climate are shown
to be admirably adapted.
f .Democratic Presidential Material.
- The Springfield Republican, an in
dependent democratic newspaper, said
"If 10 democrats, well informed con
cerning American politics, were to con
fer on the subject of the next demo
cratic candidate for the presidency,
they would conclude their delibera
tions with the public statement that
conditions are not sufficiently develop
ed to warrant a choice, yet they would
privately agree that the governor of
Ohio is the most promising democrat
at present within the field of vision."

The state constitution cf Oklahoma
reserved to cities tiie initiative and
referendum, it aimed them with a
sword of defense against political
"gang3" which had been looting and
plundering them under the old system
of maladministration. The framers of
the state constitution seemed to be
conscious cf the evils and dangers
surrounding municipal franchises wh3n
they conferred upon the people the
right to create free cities, declaring:
j "No municipal corporation shall ever
1 grant, extend or renew a franchise,
without the approval of a majority of
the qualified voters residing -within Its
corporate limits." And the voters, oy
a 25 per centum petition, may demand
the opportunity to vote upon the grant
ing, extension or renewal of a fran
chise, thereby forcing to an issue
franchise service of which the people
may be in need, but which municipal
officers, for improper reasons, may be
trying to withhold.
In tho last IS months four of the
largest cities in Oklahoma Ardmore,
Tulsa, Shawnee and Enid have de
clared themselves to be free cities.
All of them adopted the commission
form of government. The establish
ment of commission government at
Shawnee has boen delayed temporarfiy
by litigation. In each instance the
new charters of these free cities pro
vide for the recall, whereby corrupt
or incompetent officials may be voted
out of office. Oklahoma City, the
largest city in the state, has elected
a board of freeholders, all favorable
to commission government, to draft
a charter. Muskogee, Guthrie and
Hcbart are preparing to do llkejvise.
The demand by citizens for a change
has been so insistent that in several
instances partisanship was wholly
swept away and city administrations
with from a year to two years to serve
were compelled to retire from office
by the adoption of the commission
form of government. This spirit of
independence and nonpartisanshlp was
again manifest ed In the election of a
nonpartisan board of commissioners.
There never was a moro popular
municipal movement. Few are op
posed to it except those who would
prostitute public interests for private
gain. The "bosses" cry out in despair
against the "commission plan" of mu
nicipal government just like they do
against direct plurality primary legis
lation. They do not liko to have their
clutches removed from "graft." They
do not want the people to be given
such direct control over city govern
ment as the "commission plan" con
fers and over nominations as direct
plurality primary legislation confers.
But even the opposition of the
"bosses" to such legislation is very
useful It proves its absolute need.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 4 That
half the meat eaten In the United
States can be called uninspected and
that a real and serious danger to the
publie exists as a result is one of the
conclusions reached by Dr. -A. D. Mel
ln, thief of the United States bu
reau of animal industry, in his an
nual report to the secretary of agri
culture. Inefficiency of the government In

reach business done entirely within a

One result of the federal Inspec
tion is to cause the diversion of dis
eased and suspicious looking animals
to the uninspected establishments,
where they are slaughtered for the
local market, says the report.
"Many cities have an inspection
service, but few have an adequate
force, and the inspection often con
sists of merely examining the meat
as offered for sale in the markets
when it is usually impossible to de
tect disease the evidence of which
may have been removed with the vis
cera or organs," says Dr. Melvin.
"As a rule sanitary conditions are
bad at uninspected slaughter houses,
and in order to provide real protec
tion against diseased or unwholesome
meat a competent veterinary and san
itary Inspection at the time of slaugh
ter is essential."
Inspection Produces Result.
Despite the shortcomings of the
inspection it has many advantages
and is pYoducing results which are
increasing from year to year, Dr. Mel
vin shows in his report. With the
new law a steady Improvement in
the sanitation of packing houses has
been brought about, and as a result
there has been a considerable de
crease in the amount of meat con
demned in the inspection.

A dust covered farmer mounted on
a foaming horse, who had come tear
ing down the Richmond turnpise,
shouted this startliug news to two
barefooted newsboys who were resting
in the shade on the side of the turn
pike, a few yards from the point whe.e
it crossed the Richmond and Peters
The time was In the early days cf

Benjamin F. Butler was operating on

We discussed the question whether
we should go home or go on .toward
Richmond and endeavor to get a
glimpse of General Butler, whom Con
federate boys at that time regarded
as a sort of monster.
We started at a brisk walk along
the railroad, with our unsold stock
of Richmond papers under oar arms.
As we turned a curve near the Swift
creek bridge we saw, about a mile be
yond, a sight that greatly excited us.
The air was full of black smoke,
through which we saw an occasional
flash of flames. Presently we came
close enough to discover that the source
of the flames was a great pile of teie
graph poles and railroad ties.
"Butler's men did that," said Jack.
"We'll have to be mighty cautious.
Let's get into the ditch along the track
and keep a sharp lookout."
Just beyond a slight rise of the
ground north of the hoose wa3 a Un
ion encampment. The smoke lazily
rose from a hundred campllres, and
the white tents gleamed in the bright
sunshine In a manner that was almost
painful to the eyes.
Gradually it dawned upon us that
the camp had been suddenly abandon
ed so suddenly, indeed, that the din
ners' were left cooking on the fires,
and all sorts of catpo .utensils and. pro
visions' were scattered promiscuously
We made straight for the big tent
in front of which the' flag was flying.
Jack lowered the flag. WJta a beating
heart I entered the tent. I found It
littered with torn papers and maps.
In one corner was a camp chest upon
which were painted the words, "Gen
eral E. F. Butler. U. S. A."
In a tent in the rear of General But
ler's, which was probably used as a
kitchen, we found a stock of provi
sions that set us wild with delight.
We had little to eat at home and now
had been for several hours without
A pot of coffee steamed on the fire
in front of the tent. On the shelves In
side was a boiled bam, and about it
lay a variety of canned meats and
fruits, while a chest was found to con
tain a quantity of freshly baked bread.
"Oh." said Jack, "if we only had a
wagon we might carry home a lot of

is to tote home as much as we can on

"I reckon," said Jack, "that the folka
at home would like tea and coffee best.

We decided to load ourselves down
with those two articles. We found
some empty sacks and dlrided the
contents of the sack of green coffee in
General Butler's kitchen tent Into two
parts of thirty or forty pounds each.

Then Into two other sacks we poured a
chest of Oolong tea. These were tied
up and put inside the sacks containing
coffee, and Jack also stuffed into bis
sack the flag in front of the general's
tent, which he had taken down wbeu
ha first entered the camp.
He suggested that I give him a part
of my coffee in order to lighten tho
load, and at first I was Inclined to do
so, but when I thought how the people
at home after many months' use at

We took the turnpike with the hops

two Confederate cavalrymen riding to
ward us. In our fear lest they should
rob us of our precious possessions we
slouched along as near the woods as
we could get. hoping they would pass
without noticing us.
Vain hope! "Halt!" we heard one
of them shout ju6t as they were
abreast of us. One of them, who was
a corporal, dismounted.
He was a cruel looking fellow, and
we soon discovered that hl3 looks did
not belie him. Walking up to Jack,
he grufily asked, "What have you got
there?" and at the same time roughly
jerked the sack from the terrified boy's

Just as we reached the top of a long
hill and I was about to drop from fa
tigue I saw that we were near our
journey's end. In front of us was a
large building which before the days
of railroads had been a roadside inn.
Two guards slowly marched back and
forth before the tumbledown steps
that led to the porch, which extended
across the front of the house and
which was now crowded with sol
diers, apparently couriers and order
lies. As we reached the porch the soldiers
began to rally the corporal upon bis
"baby prisoners." He made no reply,
but stalked pompously through the
open door after instructing his com
panion to bold us.
This was a useless Instruction. W
needed no holding except as we were

Every one was smiling in the pleas

"Well, well," the general repeated,
"what Is the trouble?"
The corporal began to answer, but
the general said: "I have bad your

Jack was much encouraged. He stop
ped forward and told a straightfor
ward ctory of the way In which we
had been arrested and of the cor
poral's brutal treatment of us.
"Shameful I" said the general as be
looked at the corporal with angry
eyes. Then, turning to Jack again, he
said kindly, "Now tell me where you
got the flag and other things."
"We got them from General Butler's
abandoned camp on Sblppen's farm,"
said Jack promptly.
"What! Are you telling the truth?"
excitedly asked the general as he
jumped up and walked around to
where w were standing. At the same
time the room was filled with the
sound of rattling swords as the officers
