MURRAY RE-ENTERS OKLAHOMA POLITICS Picturesque Figure Who Tried Model Bolivian Colony Out for Governor. By the Associated Press, OKLAHOMA CITY, January 10.— Politics have called again to W. H. (Alfalfa Bill) Murray, picturesque figure in Oklahoma history, who re- 1 turned recently from Bolivia, where he attempted to establish an agricultural colony. Murray has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for gov ernor on a platform the chief plank of which declares that public utility cor- j porations should not be permitted to : engage in any business for which they I are not specifically chartered. . One other candidate, E. B. Howard of Tulsa, former Representative, has an nounced for the Democratic guber- ! natorial nomination. Murray has entered the thick of Oklahoma politics again, although it had been his dream to spend the re mainder of his life "free from turmoil and strife” in the paradise he hoped to | create in Bolivia. Several years ago Murray turned his attention to the establishment of the Bolivian colony, a boyhood ambition. He took 75 farmers, mostly married Ok lahomans, to settle a 20,000-acre con cession in Bolivia. The project was short lived, however, and in less than a year after it was initiated all but two of the families in the original colony had given up hopes for success and had returned to the States.

LISBON.—The first hint of Com munist activity in Portuguese Guinea has come from Jose Peixoto Carvalho, chief of the native services of the co lonial office. In a statement this official said that propagandists, trained by the Third In ternationale in Moscow, have been un usually active in the colony recently. Many of the emissaries came from French Guinea, where they had been i agitating for a native rising. 1 "It is the duty of the government,” he said, "to check the pernicious influ ence of these firebrands by allowing the missionaries to spread the gospel in the back country from which they had been expelled by previous radical govern ments.” ALBANIAN CENSORSHIP KEEPS PLOTTING DARK Northern Catholic Tribes Rumored Ready to Join Moslems in Anti-Western Move. ftr the Associated Press.

CHICAGO, January 10. —Judge Her bert Immenhausen of Morals Court yesterday ordered an investigation of I the methods whereby the Illinois Vig- I fiance Association secures the evidence I upon which the booksellers are being I prosecuted in Chicago for selling what I! the association claims Is obscene litera- I! ture. I The Investigation order was the climax | of the trial of Miss Marlon Mathes, 26, a saleslady In a local book store, ar rested on a “John Doe” warrant. She was held in a police station cell several hours before securing her release, but the owner of the shop was not appre hended. In his request for an investigation the court criticized that portion of the law which provides for half of the fine going to the organization which makes the complaint. Judge Immenhausen also suggested the Slate's attorney’s of fice be more careful to see how evi dence was obtained before prosecuting cases of this nature. It was charged in testimony at the trial of Miss Mathes that the agents ■ of the association persuaded the shop keeper to order literature not In stock for the purpose of Bringing about the arrest and collecting the fee. Fire Fought With Powder. Fire fighting with powder instead of liquid Is being tested In a big way by a German fire department. A fire en gine has been equipped with a pump to force the powder through a hose. A harmless carbonic-acid powder was used effectively. It eliminated the dam age to property by water and chemi cals, which often amounts to more than that done by the fire itself. j We’re extravagant in our Semi-annual Clearance Reductions : I Because we want to make sure of Clearance—quickly. 1 Every Suit, Top Coat, Overcoat —reserving only Full Dress and Cutaways—which means you choose from Fashion Park Richard Austin Charter House The Mode I I —the finest Clothing made end sold exclusively in Washington here.

Colored Federal Prisoners Had Been Sent to Work on Georgia Roads. The contract with Chatham County, Ga.. county commisisoners, whereby colored convicts from Atlanta Federal Penitentiary were placed In a Chatham County road camp to work on roads, has been cancelled, effective March 15, 1930, It was announced last night by the De partment of Justice. The action follows discussion In con gressional circles over the transfer and protests from colored organizations. The men were sent to the "honor” road camp, where the Government paid for their board, in order to relieve conges tion in the Atlanta prison. The department said It was apparent the convicts knew of the discussion, and that on January 3. some had refused to go to work, and it had been necessary to return them to the prison. Some dissatisfaction over the contract had arisen, the Department of Justice said, and through removal of prisoners to the military barracks at Leavenworth, Graduate McCormick Medical Glaxteo Fitted Colleca Em Examined DR.

Interesting Centennials. *llllß year is the centennial anniver sary of two interesting discoveries. The first steam engine, the invention of John Ericsson, was given a very suc cessful trial in London 100 years ago. Ericsson's engine substituted machin ery for hand power and sounded the; knell of tne old-type fire apparatus, brought from Holland to England inj 1888. The test was made on a bttter' cold night. A big fire had broken out; in London, a city already terrorised by three fires that had threatened it with, total destruction. On this memorable, night the old engines quickly froze up and Ericsson's model was- called into action. For hours it worked inces santly. The other anniversary is that of the introduction of the Braille system, of raised characters for the blind. Braille had learned to write and read the em bossed Roman type. Later he examined carefully all existing systems of radsed characters and adopted as the basis of his own Invention the punctogragihlc method of Capt. Barbler. a .young French cavalry officer.
