CAN NOI IAX ABOVE VALUE Muskogee, Okla., July 2. The state board of equalization, the county as sessor or no other board or official in Oklahoma can tax a man's property for more than 100 cunts on the dollar .cording to a decision rendered today, by Judge McCain in the case of F. H. Nash and a great many others against County Treasurer Waiuwright to en join the treasurer fro madvertising or selling their property fo the non-payment of taxes. In the various peti tions it was alleged that the county assessor had placed the property on the tax duplicate at a fair valuation and that the state board in raising the value fifty per cent was actually con fiscating property. A temporary re straining order was granted by the court and after a hearing the injunc tions today were made perpetual. The decision of Judge McCain does not in any wise conflict with the recent de cision of the supreme court in which it was held that the state board of equalization had the right to raise the value of any property as a class, that is to say if the average assessable value of horses was fixed at $20 the 4 of July Shoes, Hosiery and Hats Not-a-Seme Hose must make jrood.

"Three things appealed to me as being of prime importance.) First, making the party platform and that may not be so important, if the candidate is not right. Second, naming a progressive candi date and third, the selection of a cam paign committee in entire sympathy with the candidate, and named by him. In my own campaigns there have been men on my committee, who would not act as chairman of a meeting in their own states." , state could raise the value to $30. If however in making this proportionate ! raise a man whose horse had been J raised for taxation purposes from $100 I to $150 and the actual value of the ; horse was but $100, then this man -s an individual could get relief in the I district court. The decision rendered by Judge McCain today only applies to personal property. A suit brought by O. D. Devell in which he seeks to set aside the assessment on his real prop erty in Muskogee is still pending. Illinois Swings Over to Wilson. 'Paltimore, July 2. Following a cau cus held at midnight, the Illinois dele gation to national democratic conven tion unanimously agreed to cast their entire vote for Governor Wilson to morrow. The Illinois delegation was instructed for Clark und have voted for him on each of the forty-two ballots. This probably means the nomination of Wilson. A great deal of amusement has been created among the crowds awaiting returns from Baltimore by cartoons drawn by Ralph Wolfe, a Vinita boy who possesses a remarkable talent along this line. Geo. E. Harris exhibited a bunch of seven stalks of desert corn from a single grain. Ad Roach raised a small crop of this grain last year and it pro duced In the neighborhood of 200 bushels per acre. SHOE COMPANY GUY COUNCIL The continuous fight made by the city council for economy in the admin istration of the city's business resulted in an old precedent being broken for the first time in the history of the city, when a balance of nearly $5,000 was left in the city treasury at the end of the year which closed Sunday night, June ,30. Every year previous to this the council has exceeded the amount levied for the current expenses of the city, but this year there is a different story. The fact that there was a balance in the treasury was brought to light last night, when the council met to make the annual estimate of the ex penses for the coming year. At this meeting it was decided to continue the plan of economy as far as possible. On account of the fact that new fire equip ment has to be purchased for the fire department and the bridge across Hull creek replaced it was necessary to ask for the full amount of taxes allowed under the law as last year. The fol lowing is the gross estimate of the ex penses of the city for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1913: Contingent and supply fund. .$ 2.000.00 Street and bridge fund 4,000.00 Street lighting 3,600y00 Water fund 4,000.00 Fire fund 7.000.00 Sewers 657.32 Police fund 2,000.00 Sanitary and health fund 300.00 Park fund 1,000.00 Salary fund 3,000.00 Outstanding warrants 811.14 City hall fund 1,200.00 Cemetery fund $00.00 Total $30,368.46 The balance left on hand subtracted from tn's amount will leave the amount for which the county excise board will be asked to levy a tax. That will mean that about $25,000 will be the net amount to be raised for general purposes and about $14,000 will be re quired for the sinking fund. RESOLUTIONS.

That is my reason for believing that like Bryan and La Follette must get together to start a party before this country gets any reforms worth speak ing of.'' This view was expressed here yes terday by Eugene W. Chafin, prohibi tion presidential nominee four years ago. "A third party," he said, "will come I ultimately. It will put all of the bad I men in one party and they will never i be able to carry a single election. As . slavery once held the balance of power in both imrties, so today Wall street holds the balance of power, i "Two years ago when Roosevelt came back from Africa and had his in terview with Plnchot. he knew he ' would not support Taft. If he had started a third party then, bringing to his aid men like Bryan and La Fol ! lette, they would have carried the elec tion this year. The situation has now become more complex. Bryan will not step aside for Roosevelt, and Roose velt will not for Bryan. It seems to me that both must step aside and unite on some other man." COMING Dental - - 20c v"s And Some Government Officers Really Worked in Violation of the Law. Muskogee, Okla., July 2. The lid flew off yesterday because congress got lazy and failed to pass appropriation bills to pay the expenses for govern ment liquor enforcement officers. Spe cial federal agents were notified that they were really not expected to work since no funds had been provided by the senate. It would have been a vio lation of the law, strictly speaking, for them to have worked for nothing, con sequently they didn't worrying about liquor sales for one day and a num ber of Muskogee thirsty men contend, that it was possible to get booze most anywhere Monday. Sinco congress had signified its in tentions of providing money for an other month Just before adjournment Saturday, the Union Indian Agency did not close as was contemplated. A number of employes took advantage of the situation to watch bulletin boards or hear the megaphone reports from the Baltimore convention. Dana H. Kelsey, Indian superintendent, had told all employes of his department that it was not compulsory to come back, but that they could do so if they chose. The same situation regarding law enforcement or work at the Indian agency was narrowly averted Mon day. Speaker Clark went into seclu sion yesterday and since no one could (tad him. he was not on hand to Sign the joint congressional resolution in order that the wheels of the govern ment might not stop at midnight. Rep resentative Alexander of Missouri was placed in the chair as speaker pro tein of the house and on signing the precious document, it was lated rush ed to President Taft, who signed it before leaving for Philadelphia.
