General Mann stated further that the state of Oklahoma was wholly re sponsible for the pay and mainten ance of the men until such time as they were taken Into the regular army and that tho he regretted the condi tion of the men he was powerless to do anything. He told Captain Hurley that olteo mistakes were made in or ganizing militia units on a war basis Inyteud of a peace basis and that this mistake had been made In the caso of Tulsa.

Tho un suece.sful submarine attack on tho ships of the American expeditionary forces has revived spy rumors in the capita 1 and will result in even more stringent measures, if possible, to cloak tho movrnvent of military forces from the enemy.

Spies at Work? Discussion of possible spy activities took many angles today. Some offi cials were Inclined to believe that the Germans must have bad a warning of the definite time anreed upon for tho crossing, but others discredited any such theory, arguing that an at tack was to have been expected as a natural consequence cf the general knowledge that was common prop erty. There were indications that the de partment of Justice might be asked to undertake an investigation when army and navy reports on the incident! were complete. There was little Inclination any where to attach blame for the attnek to uny official act of the war or navy department. It was pointed out that tho movement overseas was conducted with unusual secrecy considering the large number of men affected, and that the utmost precautions were tak en after the ships were at sea to make the time of their arrival on the other side conjectural even to any person knowing the hour of the departure.

SENATOR GOLOBIE THRILLS AUDIENCE Only Orator at Tulsa's Cele bration of the Fourth Makes Wonderful Speech. Disregarding ull spreud-eugle prec edents fur Fourth of July orators, Senator John Gololile of Guthrie, who featured the ufternoun's patriotic pro gram ut Owen park yesterday, took a truly world-wide viewpoint and de livered a masterful exposition of In ternational philosophy, with special reference to America's destiny ufter the war. "When tho United Stuti-s entered this great war," begun Senator Golo lile, "It entered into u now era an era thut the man of today and tomorrow must realize. Buck there In 1776 our forefathers created the first epoch of the I'nlted Stutes when they broke uwuy from the mother country and formed un Independent democracy In denounce of ail existing rules of gov ernment making. "The civil war sent us into a second period by deciding that this continent was to exist us one mighty unit and thut the viewpoint should bo ouo of national origin rather than of petty states. "Now, as we plunge Into this great conflict, we should come to a full realization that our vision in the fu ture must be a vision of the world. Our policy of Isolation Is a policy of the civil war epoch, and wo must leave It with the other outgrown Ideas of thut period. Now Is Crisis. 'This Is the crisis when the Amurl cun genius shall blossom out und give Its superior uspirutions to the world or when It shall give eternul way to other ideals. Even us un Individual, a nation must either progress or be lost in stagnation und retrogression. It cannot stand still. We havo ex hausted. In a largo way of speaking, the resources of our country und we must look to other fields for our new umbitlous. "Furthermore our policy of Isolation is set at naught by modern science. When it took two weeks or more to get any communication across the Atlantic let alone transport troops overseas, our theory of aloofness from Kurtipo was practicable. But the steamship and tho cutter tho cable and the wireless, tho submarine und I the airplane huve erased the restric tions of nutute. Instead of being a I protection and a barrier, the oceans are today our greatest highways and our most perilous weakness. As a climuctic proof that the United States should throw off her nurrow policy und udopt a world viewpoint, Senator Golobie showed thut this na tion, the first democracy and the most powerful democracy, Is the best fitted to blane a way for liberty and democracy over tho wide cxpunso of the globe. All Have Divine Right. "As a mutter of pure self-dtfensc," said the speaker, "we must make It our sacred duty to see thut the divine right of every Individual man shall replace, the divine right of kings. "In the future this nutlon will either be dominant or dominated. If. thru A mericu's false seclusion, Germany should win this wur. the kaiser would come over here and ram his civiliza tion down our throats thut's the facts of the mutter." Delving deeper Into the axioms of political philosophy, Senator Golobie traced the governmental history of the world, showing the endurtrtg law that all nations reach a pinnacle of fume und power only to decline. The speaker's intimation wus thut It Is time when America, the strong and untried, shulf mount Its steed and tuke for Its allotted time the leadership of tire world, rather than to Buffer a premature oblivion at the hands of Germany. Senator Golobie traced tho domina tion of Babylon, of Egvpt, of Greece, of Rome, of the Franks, of France, of England, of Germany. In control of tho seas, he showed how Genoa had succeeded Venire, only to be re placed in turn by Spain, who bowed to Holland, Englund's predecessor. ' Thus," said the senator, "It is a story of one generation taking tho reins from the hands of the former. CONTINUED ON PAGE FOCK TO SHOW 18 KIGHT. J AMSTERDAM, July I.
