CORPORATIONS AND CONSTITU
When our colstltutlonnl convention
meets to frnmoMho fun- amenta law
of our state-, they have boforo them
an undertaking which Is worthy of

knows what wrong may bo done by
this liody. It rhny rest assured that
tho oil corporations, tho railroads nnd
tho trusUi will have their men there
an they have had them In the lobbies
nt Washington during this entire ses
sion of emigre. It Is plain to bo
seen that a great effort was mado to
shape tho enabling act to suit the
wishes of the coriKirnttons and fall
ing to some extent at Washington,
they will take up tbvtr next work at
tho constitutional rnnventloniln each
district they will put forth n man,
and It will hi only by careful voting
that men, prejudiced only for Okla
homa, will bo elected. It Is sometimes
hard to know the man who favors cor
t'orntloiiB Ho comes In all disguises.
He may oven denounce his very meas.
ure, and then push It through, when
elected. Tho honor to sit In a conven
tion which shnpos tho constitution Is
an honor which comes to few men and
wjll be eagerly sought after. Candi
dates will be plentiful. From nniong
thoMj mon, who placo themselves bo
foro tho people as worthy of this
honor, a careful choice must bo made.
We do not want it said that Oklahoma
has n railroad constitution, Thero is
oily ono way to prevent this, and that
by thu votes of Oklahoma at tho polls.

ings which aro to bo erected, ono
In tho second nnd ono In tho fourth
Tho purpose of tho meeting wan to
estltnato tho cost of making a few
changes In tho plnns of the buildings
which had been accepted by tho board
several days ago. Tho changes which
wero to bo figured upon wero In
tho basement. The board, had decided
to extend tho basement the entlro slzo
of the building Instead of halt Its
Alze, and had called tho meeting for
. that purpose. After somo dlsciisBlon 6n
J life' stibjqct and n carohiHgoiiigl,over
of tho plans, It wns decided that tlio
basement could bo mado tho hlzo of
tho building at tho same cost thnt It
could bo mado tho slzo first specified
In tho plHns.
It was thought tho contract for tho
erection of the buildings .which was
received by C. E. Frnloy, his being
tho lowest bid, would bo signed up
at tho meeting yesterday afternoon,"
but this was not done. Another meet

tho cohtr'ac? signed up, bo ttiat work'
can begin Immediately on tho con
struction of tho buildings.
H Is tlio Intention of the board end
thoy have Instructed tho contractors
to 'that effect that tho buildings bo
finished by tho- first of October, Hi
which tlmo tho public schpols of tho
