making valid this law. a decision

Invalid was mado In district court
Inert night In the Injunction suit
brought against tho city by V. C.

Judge Kedmond P. Cole, in mak
ing the decision, stated ho was not
in any way criticizing the city com
missioners nnd other officers re
sponsible for tho present void ordi
nance, slnco the mnttcr of legisla
tion for tho purpose of regulating

taken nrc common, and will be until
tho law on this matter Is finally de
termined. Agree With llrcustrr.
Counsel for the taxi drivers, who
asked a permanent Injunction pre
venting tho city from enforcing the
ordinance as discriminatory, con
tended nt tho hearing last night
that since tho court Inst week hold
sections of the art rolntlng to tho
1.1, 000 Indemnity bond and the (30
a year llceneo fee wero probably ln
vnhd becauso excessive, then the
cntlr, ordinanco was void. The
city attorney denied this nnd cited
cases to show that higher courtu
had given every aid to cities at
tempting to regulate traffic, recog
nizing the fact that such legislation
Is new and that until tho law on this
subject becomes sottled, municipali
ties will lio nt a disadvantage Hi

beas corpus action brought by C. II.
O'Donnell, In which this petitioner
was released nfter Judge Hrewster
held tho ordinanco probably Invalid

enue measure, prohibited by the
stnto law ns a derivative from any

"We havo hero a growing city,"
Judge Colo said, "and some time or

nnd Ardmore was changed from n
sleepy utile agricultural tenter to
bustling city, were lumu compared
to the present.
Illg Times I'or Ardmore.
And why not? Never havo the

things to thlnl; iibout, look forward
to and take part In, as now. To be

there's tho annual Ardmoro Auto

thrown open today, likewise to run

there v .11 lie a mlddlcv, eight rham

to deride whether the town shall be
turned over to a city manager or
whether tho present coiincllmenle

trial of Clara Bmlth Hamon on a
chnrgo of murdering .lake I.. Hamon,
Is to be started In district court be
fore Judge Tom Champion at 9
o'clock tomorrow morning.
Tho report has gone out that Ard
moro people are not neatly so ex
riled over the llaliion case as are the
people in oilier parts of the slnte and
thoso of other states and It has made
somewhat of an Impression. Hut
the fnut Is that under the surface
Ardmoro Is terribly excited over tho
trial.
The Whole Town Tnl.cs Sides.
Jake I.. H.tmnn was the town's

didn't like him. Nearly everybody
has read tho stories of Clara Kmlth,
her own nrrounts of her life and the

They believed her nnd sympathized
with her, or they didn't put much
Mock In what she raid and have no
kind feelings for hen So there you
havo It. Most everybody is on ono
side or the other. And they're deep
ly Interested.
Tho autiB.inblte show, the llvo
stock show, and even the forthcom

that the trial will start on scheduled
