ARRESTS WEST SAYS NEW BOARD LEGAL Attorney General Advises Frame Best Plan is to Do Nothing. Oklahoma City, Nov. 20. Attorney Cenoral West advised the state board of affairs Monday that even if the "new" board of education is enjoined from acting, it is the only legal board on the face of conditions. The opin ion was written to Lon M. Frame, chairman of the board of affairs. The attorney general informs Mr. Frame that at an early date, possibly Tuesday, he will file an application for a writ of supercedeas in Judge Clark's court and that until action is taken thej-eon "it appears to me the only safe thing for you to do is to do noth ing." The new members of the board of education are prima facie the legal members, writes the attorney general. The authorities, he adds, holding that the issuance of new commissions prima facie removes the'old. "Until some court with authority," says General West, "passes upon the removal, which 1 understand Judge Clark expressly says lie does not, it must be presumed as far as other offi cers are concerned, that the new mem bers are the legal members and the old members are not." In the meantime, the idea grows that the contest between the two factions, or boards, will not be settled until the legislature meets and the two sets of appointees go to the senate for con firmation. And there nothing but a hard fight is expected before one side or the other wins. Even if the present lease before Judg Clark is appealed as I speedily as possible, a decision before I the legislature meets could hardly be looked for. Preserving Guano Deposits. Four centuries ago the Incas of Peru, wise In their generation, pro tected and conserved the guano de posits of their empire.

Now Peru Is imitating the wisdom of the Incas, and has adopted measures to conserve and perpetuate the sup ply of this invaluable fertilising ma terial. Feathered Citizens of London.

Washington, Nov, 21. As a result of recent disclosures on the magni tude and sources of presidential cam paign funds Senator Gore of Oklahomn will introduce a bill which will pro vide that the government shall bear the cost of presidential and congres sional campaigns. The tentative plan of Senator Gore is to base the amount of the campaign funds for each party on the number of voters at the last preceding general election. lit a pres idential campaign he would have the allowance made by the federal govern ment 15c per voter. In a congressional campaign he would have the allowance 10c per voter. Just how much this would mean in government appropria tions for the next presidential cam paign can only be roughly calculated. Senator Gore figures it would mean something like $1,000,000 for the dem ocrats, $600,000 for the progressive party and $500,000 for the republicans. He calculates that the entire cost of a presidential campaign for all parties, democrat, republican, progressive, so cialist, prohibitionist and all others that may happen along would not ex ceed $2,500,000. Franks for Campaign Literature. ' In addition to this, Senator (.lore proposes that .the chairman of each national committee be given a frank which he can use within certain pre scribed limits in sending out cam paign literature through the mails free of charge. This would solve the prob lem of how to get campaign literature to the voters. William Jennings Bryan is a believer in the plan of having the government pay the campaign expenses. It (is known there is strong support for the idea in President Tat't's cabinet. Col. Roosevelt is friendly to some effec tive plau to having the government meet the campaign expenses. Contributions Prohibited. Under the Senator Core plan individ ual contributions would be prohibited. Senator Gore thinks the. plan of hav ing a vast number of small contribu tors is preferable to the plan of hav ing a small number of big contributors. Still he considers that the plan of hav ing the government bear the expense would be better. While some of the democrats in congress will support the Gore plan, or one like it, others are averse to it. They put their opposition on the ground that for the government to bear the cst would lessen the in terest felt by the voters ill politics. SPAVINAW ITEMS.

Mr. Fluke, of Vinita, is here on bus iness today. .Mr. Williams of this place. has gone to Dakota where h" shipped a car of apples.

He said he had a muzzle-loading shot gun and slipped up on a drove of about 100 turkey, and ho thought he could kill all of them, so he turned both barrels loose at once. It kicked him over, skinned his nose and shot 40 pounds of -feathers off the turkeys, skinned about 175 little saplings and didn't kill a turkey. We guess he shot at n pile of feathers. Shot While Hunting. While out hunting ut Adair yester day, Clyde Stuart, the Adair grain man, was accidently shot in the leg with quail shot, by C. W. Kilgore, but was not seriously hurt. Only four shot entered his rlgh leg, which caused the blood to flow freely for awhile, but as soon as medical aid could be reached the shot were taken out the trouble was over.

Okla., Nov. 20. For the second time since statehood the voters of Creek county today selected Sa pulpa as the county seat by a decisive majority over Bristow who aspired to have the sent of government removed to that town. Official figures as tabu lated by the special election board last night gave Sapulpa a majority of 263 votes of Bristow. Today's election will probably end a bitter fight that has been fought through the ballot boxes and courts since August 12, 1908 when Sapulpa was made the county sent by a ma j.icffy of 529 votes. As soon as the victory was assured this city, citizens began one of the blggest celebrations ever held ,here. At ten o'clock a gigantic torchlight parade with over a thousand persons In line paraded through the business, district of the city. Although the election was bitterly contested in every part of the county, so far as could be learned tonight there were no disturbances anywhere. Kelfer whose vote invalidated the flrut election went almost solid for Sapulpa today. The vote throughout the county was much heavier than ever before re corded. All business houses and city offices In both towns remained closed all day while the employers an ((employees worked for their respective cities. The county seat has been an inter esting one. Sapulpa was designated as the temporary capital at the corr stitutional convention in 1907. The first election to determine the perma nent county seat was held August 12, 1908, and resulted la a victory for Sa pulpa, her opponent being Bristow. ', Itristow imniciliati'lv contested the election and the supreme court re ferred the matter to referee Barker of Enid, who after a three year in vestigation filed a report last spring declaring the election illegal. The su preme court ordered a new election and the governor designated the dater for itV-voviM'r 'M. It is possible that Bristow may con test this election but on what grounds could not be ascertained last night. With the matter now definitely settled It is probable that the county at once will take steps to build a permanent court house, the county offices now be ing located in office buildings.
