Dallas, Texas, Oct. 18. Housed in the quiet of Dalworth Inn, twenty-si4men 011 the ok,ahoma team are w members of the Texas university foot ball team are keen for the whistle which will let them at the Sooners Saturday afternoon at Gaston park, and give them a chance to redeem themselves for the defeats administer ed by the Oklahomans last year and the year before. Equally eager are the visitors from the north who arrived Friday night and went directly to their hotel where they retired early. Coach Owen ex pects to have his men out early Sat urday morning for a little warming up practice on the gridiron where they will battle in the arternoon. Owen refused to be interviewed Friday night as to his predictions concerning the outcome of the contest. He stated his men were In good condition and that the morrow would tell which team was the best. That he would rather have had the big game a week later in the schedule was the statement of Coach Aider dice of the Texans, for he does not believe they have bad the proper amount of hard playing together as a team to bring them to their full strength . Gaston park, where the struggle will be held is an ideal field for the grid iron contest. Soft, cushiony grass will make severe injuries to players very improbable, yet is not so soft as to retard progress of the runners. Heavy rains of the past few days also has softened the field. Fair weather is promised for Saturday. With, twenty-six men on the Texas squad and twenty on the Oklahoma aggregation, the coaches said Friday they were not positive of the exact lineup of Saturday's contest. But it is believed that five Dallas men will be on the Texas eleven when the teams line up for the kick-off. In all probability Sellars will start the game at left, end for the Texans; Berry at left tackle; Knauer, left guard; Mur ray, center; Keck, right guard; Jor dan, right tackle; Woodhull (capt.) right end; 1'ruett. quarterback; Bar ren, left half; Nlble, fullback; Brown, right halfback. The center men in the line are uncertain, for there are many strong men for center and guards. Pritchett, Harrold, Halbert and others may be started at these positions. Of the eleven men who will start the game for Oklahoma, eight of them were on the team which opposed the LoOf horns last year. These men are Spears, center; Meacham, left guard: Hott, right tackle; Clark, right end; ltogers. left end; Courtwright. lef half hack; Reeds, righ halfback and Am brister, quarterback. Oklahomans on Guard. Xornian, Okla., Oct. 18. Head Coach Benny Owen, Assistant Coach Capshaw and a squad of twenty-one players left Friday morning on the southbound Santa Fe for Dallas, where they meet the Texas Ixmghoms Satur day in what will be the first real test of the ability of this year's Sooner MEN'S AND BOYS' WINTER GLOVES New Lot Just Received Boys' and Girls' Wet Weather Coats and Hats MILFORD - BERGER SHOE COMPANY squab. A large crowd of students were at the station to give the team a send off and a number of the most ardent of the Sooner boosters accompanied the team. The student body here Is expecting a good, ban' game and will watch with much i.iterest the telegraphic re ports of the game. Those who re member the history of the past games with Texas are inclined to take rather lightly the reported poor condition and the lack of lighting spirit of the Texans; for it has been but seldom that the game with the Longhorns has not been the hardest of the schedule. Last year arter winning from Mis souri and Kansas, it was the judg ment of the Sooner players that the 5ame with Texas was the hardest of the entire schedule. Though they are expecting a close game there is no question in the minds of the loyal Sooner fans that Bennie's proteges will subdue the Longhorns. In the lineup that will face the Texans there are missing but two men, As sistant Coach Capshaw and Bill Moss, from the team which defeated them last year. There are but siv or seven veterans on the Texas team. The new Clark, brother of Captain Glenn Clark, a husky sophomore, weighing 180 pounds. Wits his stocky build and his exceptional speed for his weight, he should play his opponent off his feet. Weeden, at fullback, another man who did not play in the Texas game last year, was given his letter last year for his consistent, playing in all the minor games and was dubbed the "plunging" fullback. This year, he is expected to be one of the team's sen sations. The other man, new to the Longhorns, is Tom Lowry, sprinter and captain of last, year's track team, who will probably play part of the game at end. He is speedy and there never has ben a better tackier on Boyd Field. The following men are with the squad: Spcers, center; Berry, right guard; Meaehum, left guard; W. Clark, left tackle; Hott, right tackle- G. Clark, right end; Rogers or Lowry, left end; Ambrister, quarterback; Courtwright, left half; Reeds, right half; Weeden or Rogers, fullback. The following substitutes also made the trip: Bailey and Orr, quarter hacks; T. Capshaw and Morgan, half backs: Parsons, center;Brown, Trib bey and Button line-men; Holland, end.

A REPUBLICAN COALITION An Electoral Coalition Between Repub lican And Progressives is Formed. Oklahoma City, Oct. 19. A coalition between the progressive and republi can parties of Oklahoma, with refer ence to the vote on presidential elec tors reached today as a result of a conference of leaders of both organiza tions, as a result of which the eon--bined electoral vote will be cast for President Taft. The Bull Moosers claim that the agreement does not ex tend to state, congressional and coun ty candidates, but the republican lead ers hope for the support of tlvj pro gressives with but few exceptions, as the latter party has no ticket in the field. The nature of the agreement and the reasons therefor are brought out in statements issued by Alva L. McDon ald, chairman of the progressive state committee, Republican National Com mitteeman James Harris and Republi can State Chairman Geissier, issued today following the conference. Chairman McDonald said: "I have received many inquiries from progressives who desire to know how they can best serve the cause of good government when they come to vote in November. Most of the can didates for presidential electors on the republican ticket favor the election of Mr. Roosevelt, but 1 realize that some of them are for Mr. Taft as first choice. However, I am satisfied that as be tween Roosevelt and Wilson, all of them will vote for Roosevelt, and I think there is no doubt but what the light will be between Roosevelt and Wilson. If our people were to vote for only a part of the republican elec tors they would simply be helping the Wilson electors to that extent. There tore, I believe thn; all- progressives, regardless of past party affiliations, should vote for all ten of the candi dates for elector on the republican ticket. As Mr. Wilson Is an avowed free trader and an arch enemy of or ganized labor, his election as presi dent would be ruinous to the prosper ity of the country aud would retard the development of Oklahoma." When shown the McDonald state ment. Chairman Geissier said: "The republican state committee feels that it is of the utmost importance to re deem the state of Oklahoma from de mocracy. "That is why we are fighting ag gressively for the entire republican ticket, the national and congressional candidates as well as the state legisla tive county nominees throughout the state." National Committeeman Harris indi cated that the republicans had agreed to the arrangement, hut assigned a different reason than that of the pro gressive chairman for favoring the coalition. He said: "In my opinion the light in the coun try at large is between Taft and Wil son, and i snail expect mat evety one Of the republican electors, who, when the times comes for them to vote next December, will record his vote for Taft, notwithstanding the fact that some ot tnem would vote lor noose- velt if they should find their votes would elect him. I believe the inter ests of the people of the state demand that all good citizens vote for every man on the republican ticket, national, congressional, state and county." It is believed that the agreement reached today will greatly improve the chances of the republicans of car rying the state. Heretofore the Bull Moosers and republicans have been In a controversy as to how many of the candidates for electors on the re publican ticket are for Roosevelt and low many for Taft, and this is now eliminated. The Commercial Club Band. The Commercial Club hand has se lected Roy Franklin as its leader and ill continue its organization on its own responsibility not asking help from any one. The brnd is now pre pared to furnish excellent music for y occasion that may need the sen 's of a band. Motion to Set Aside. Mayor J. C.

'Divorce Evil" Topic of Dissertation Before Oklahoma Methodist Conference. tiuthrie, Okla., Oct. 18. Judge Al fred H. Boles of Guthrie, in a state ment made to the Oklahoma Methodist conference here today, outlined to the preachers what they can do against the divorce evil. He said: "You can refuse to marry the run away couple of doubtful age; the old fool and the young fool, the moral leper, or the physical wreck and the party who has been divorced, unless innocence is clearly established to your entire, satisfaction. "You can he a little more outspoken in your pulpit against the evil. You can show that the Bible gives one ground or cause for divorce while the laws of Oklahoma give ten."

To the City Council, City of Ylnitn, Oklahoma. Gentlemen: As representatives of the tax-payers of this city, your at tention is directed to the urgent ne-, cessity of the employment of an as-, slstant city attorney, under the ordi nance heretofore passed by you some time ago, and in order to substantiate my position In this matter, your at tention is respectfully directed to a number of civil and criminal matters: in the county court and district court! of this county. I find that a number of cases have been appealed from the police court to the county and to the district courts, and among all the cases appealed I have found that only one case has been tried. I find that two cases have been dismissed in the county court, and that four have been dismissed inj the district court, and that a motion to strike has been sus tained in three in the district court. To this I attribute a lack of the proper preparation of criminal complaints in the police court, and a vigorous prose cution of these causes after they are appealed. Such procedure Is held up to ridicule, and Is regarded as a farce and a travesty by the taxpayers' of this city. On today a judgment was taken against the city of Vinita by default in the sum of $500 and in this case I personally prepared a demurrer with in the proper time to piead, and plac ed it in the hands of Mr. W. M. Simms, the city attorney, with instructions to file same, and the record of the ofllce tfheie such pleadings are filed do not disclose that this demurrer was ever filed. 4 am taking steps, as mayor of the city, to file a motion to vacate this judgment and in the meuntime, 1 earnestly urge upon you the necessity of the employment of an efficient as sistant city attornev, who can be of assistance to me, to you and to the c ity, in the proper induct of its af fairs. " '4MMMM Respectfully, J. C. STARft, Mayor of the City of Vinita, Oklahoma George Ashhy is surveying 12 acres of ground at White Oak, on which the town will be layed off into town lots and sold. Dr. Miller, Theo. Jones and Mr. Brown are the promoters. White Oak is one of the oldest towns in the country never to have been platted.

A Reovmal Sale AO QQ Special at OliQo -1 LACK OF VIM SHOWN OY IB HIGH SCOOL Although outweiged by Vinita high school by several pounds, the Wago ner high -. I I football team put up a game against the local team yes terday afternoon that could not but arouse the admiration of all true lov ers of football. Vinita played with out the usual vim and in the last quar ter the Wagoner boys by a sensational forty yard run aud a neatly executed forward pass crossed the goal for a touchdown, the only one they made in the game. This team ought not to have scored bad Vinita been playing up to form. Considering their weight the Wagoner team played the best football seen here this season and time after time able to hold the heav ier local team for downs. Weight and speed were iu favor of the Vinita boys, however, and they were able to pile three touchdowns and a drop kick for goal in the first half. That was enough to give tbem Uie game. Dam eron, Carter, Bailey and Beard were consistent ground gainers as usual and to them is due VJnUa's score. In spite of the listless manner In which Vinita seemed to play there were some exciting plays and sensational tackles. Several times Wagoner play ers got away for long runs with an open Held only to be run down by the speedier Vinita players. Final score Vinita 22, Wagoner 7. If Vinita is to win against Musko gee and Tulsa and again bring the eastern Oklahoma high school cham pionship to this city the players will have to i?et into the game with more life than was shown yesterday. The material of the local team Is of the championship calibre hut it will take more hustle. Band Boys to Reorganize. The band concert last night was fine and well appreciated by a large crowd, but not a very- large crowd fhowed their appreciation by attend ing the show. The proceeds amount ed to $8.80. The boys say they have not met with enough encouragement to retain their new leader, and have therefore let him go. The band was reorganized and Roy Franklin select ed as leader. The boys will give a number of pay concerts this winter and will try and pull through until spring, at which time they think of getting a leader. SI4.95
