Special Senate Session Called.
Oklahoma City, Okla., Nov. 23.
Gov. LeoCruco at 2:30 o'clock today
issued a call for a special session of
tho Oklahoma senate, to meet Decem
ber 3 next. Tho call did not include a
special session of tho house. Nino out
of tho 11 senators communicated with
late tonight by telephone ami telegraph
expressed themselves as favoring n
special session, and nil agreed the gov
ernor's purpose was to havo tho pres
ent trouble with tho stato board of ed
ucation settled onco and for all, though
the call did not state such was his pur
pose. The board of education trouble
nates back eighteen mouths, when
charges were preferred against Scott
Glenn of Shawnee, F. 0. Hayes of
Chandler and Robert Dunlop of Okla
homa City for "pernicious activity In
politics." Tho matter dragged along
until during tho past summer. Tho
board of education had under consider
ation the letting of contracts for pub
lishing tho state school books. About
twenty book firms had representatives
before the board, and Cruco opposed
tho letting of the contracts before the
general election, but a majority of the
board undertook to enter Into the
agreement wit!) book Units for about
$2,000,000 wortli of school books, to be
published during tho live years. Gov
ernor Oruce says ho removed the re
fractory members at U o'clock the
morning tho contract was let, nt 0:35.
Oruce appointed new members and the

The Uroomcorn Situation.
Tho broomcorn market Is in tho samo
shameful situation that it Is every fall,
and has been for Ufteen or twenty
years. And then seems to lm no way
of mending it for some years to como.
Thitre arc only a few large dealers In
broom orn, and they arc so combined
that they can grade tho early :..nrkot
as they please. Tho broomcorn dealers
know their business nnd because tho
territory is small where broomcorn
can be protltably grown, they can all
the easier control tho market,
Havo you over noticed that along in
tho early fall thero is nlnays a report
started that the broomcorn crop is
"tho largest ever grown In tho coun
try"? Of course you have, if you live
in a section of country where broom
corn is grown to any great extent No
matter what tho condition of that
Special crop may be, tlio report is much
tho same every year. Nobody seejns
to know where tho report originated,
but It always comes about the tnuui
time nf year. Wo hao noticed it
specially for the past fifteen years.
Hero is the way the game has been
worked every year: As soon as broom
corn seeding and baling begin thore
will bo ono agent scut out by the big
broomcorn dealers only one to cell
railroad station in tho broomcorn
growing diltricts. Lach big dealer
has its agents out, but they never con
flict witli each other. They work it
this way : A. Holdup .t Co. will plac
a buyer at Fiirgnu, ono nt Knowles,
mid a few other shipping points. U
Stcalem &. Co. will place agents at
Laverne, Woodward, Supply, etc ;
GrabItfcRun will have an agent at
Englcwood, Meade and other points,
A. T. Hlel it Co. will monopolize Lib
eral, Guymon, etc.;' Tiikeltall & Ray
nothing will have their agents over on
the Santa Fe from Canadian cast.
These agents will all offer about tho
same price, They never overbid eacli
other. They will start in by telling
the man who goes to them to sell his
broomcorn what an immense crop nf
nrush thero la this year, and that It h
almost unsalable; but his llrm will
Heid a little brush, nnd Is willing to
pay tho top price. Then ho will tell
the poor fellow that If his brush is
first-class hq will pay tho immense
prico of forty dollars a ton for it; but
If it grades below first-class he can't
give more than twenty-five or thirty
dollars per ton for It.
And the samo thing will bo do no nt
every railroad station where thoro is a
buyer. Tho story of the big crop is
told the samo nay; tho pice offered is
The lamentablo thing In thin busi
ness is that thero aro always a large
number of broomcorn raisers who are
in such shape that they aro forced to
let goof a largo portion of their brush
Thoy had to borrow somo money In the
spring and their notes aro due. The
banker won't wait for his money, nor
loan any more. Tho merchant that
hat carried them through the crop
seaton must have his money to pay
tho wholesalers or "go busted." And
so the poor farmsr is forced to sell b
part if not all his brush for less than it
cost to produce it in order to get mon
ey to satisfy his creditors. Then, un
less he has othor kinds of crop to tell,
ho is In n fair way to livo mighty slim
and wear his old clothes another year.
This is the game that is played in
tho broomcorn business every year,
and will bo played until broomcorn
raisers arrange somo tchemo to beat
it. And there aro only two ways to
beat tho gamo that wo know of. One
way Is to quit raiting broomcorn alto
gether, and that is not a good way.
Tho other way is for broomcorn raisers
to combinu, build sheds in each neigh
borhood whoro the stuff Is raited and
ttore their brush until the prico is
right to sell. Get nil the broomcorn
men in tho congressional distriot or
state tocombino In thlsarrngemeiit. If
you have to havo money, borrow It on
the whole stock and loan it to those
who are in such shape that they must
have it. The company, or trust, has
hit bruth as security, and will get the
money back when tho brush is sold.
Fix a reasonable price, below which it
will not bo sold. That will not pre
vent It from going higher than the Hi
ed price. Put in ypur best men to
manage the marketing of the bruth.
Wo may havo outlined this plan very
poorly, but wo aro sure that it can be
perfected. - . ,

of tho Legislature as to what is needed
worst In tlin wny of legislation. He
calls opeclnl attention to the mid nt
belter and morn cillcieul laws for thu
enforcement of punishment fur crime.
Tim Governor says that thero are
three laws those In regard to gam
bling, tho law to control prize lighting,
and tho prohibition Iaws aro harder
to enforce than all other laws com
bined. Ho lays tho greater part of
tho blamo for the nuu-enfurccmont of
these three laws to the fact that in
many localities a violation of cither or
nil of them is viewed very leniently
by a majority of thu people, and peace
oillccrs are opposed to their enforce
ment, or very negligent in tlio matter.
Thu Governor calls attention lo tlio
l.iw In regard to gambling and in one
paragraph shows his opinion or tho
crime, ns follows:
"Of all tlio methods pursued by men
tn procuio money, to mo thuro is none
that should meet with morn determin
ed opposi'lou on the part of tho stato
ilmn that of gambling, Tho highway
mail who, at tho point of u pistol, or
ders you to stand and deliver vuur
money, or tlio thief who, creeps in nt
night while you aro asleep and lllches
juur purse. Is not one-half so deadly h
loe to society and good government ns
h tlio professional gambler "
Prize lighting and prohibition he re
gardsmuch the same, says tlio law can
iiu enforced, but asks tho legislature
to aid In tlio matter. Hu calls atten
tion to tho powers of the Governor and
litotes from the Constitution of thu
olule, at follows:
"The supreme executive power shall
ho vested In a chief magistrate, who
shall bo styl-d Tho Governor of Okla.
"Tho Gorornor shall causo tho laws
f tho State to bo faithfully executed."
He asks tho Legislature to pats tome
