Tho association termed tho lease

Gray Signed Petition.
W. H. Gray, president ot the In
dependent Producers of Tulsa,
Okla.. sgncu tne petition nnu nu
vised SonatorLa Folletto that the as
ftoclatlon had authorized a commit
tee of oil experts to assist in tno
forthcoming senato investigation.
The petition, It was said, was
drafted at a recent meeting at Tulsa
of tho association s directors.
Protests wero made ln the pctl
tion ngalnst tho policy ot tho secre
tary of tho Interior and tho secretary
ot tne navy "in opening tno navai
reserves at this tlmo for exploita
tion," and especially against tho
Ieaso given tho Sinclair Interests in
tho Teapot Dome. Wyoming, district.
Tho petition urges also against any
policy "which would tend to per

"Thero exists no emergency or
necessity which would warrant tho
opening of tho naval reserves, thoro
bolng already nbovo ground and In

Tho limitation upon tho lenses ln

Tho strength of tho signal Is not af

OKLAHOMA CITY. Mny 13. Out
of tho milling and lonlng which has
been going on all week among tho
democratic candidates for governor,
nothing has como thus far except
thu propspect of a stalemate, In the
struggle to find a candldato who
can got within sight ot Mnyor Wal
ton. With tho decision of Tom
Owen's colonels nnd captains that
ho should remain lu tho rnco awhllo
longer in an effort to rcduco tho
mayor's lead, and tho refusal of
Mob Wilson to get out merely for
tho purpose ot putting In a friend
of Tom Owen, In plnco of that
worthy himself, It appears that
these two combatants havo gotten
Into a clinch.
Hut Would Goro Do It?
Tho announcement from hanker
Owen's headquarters that ho had ar
ranged over lonu dlstancn In have
Thomas l'ryor Goro como down
from his aerlo at Washington and
mako a few tiiecchcs for him hns
opened up another phaso of tho sit
uation. 'Jliere. Is doubt that Goro
would comply with this request even
though tho termH might bo attrac
tive; for it Is not behoved that the
former senator has entirely renoun
ced pontics lilmnclt and such an
act would bo about as clear a caso
ot political horl-kari as could ho
conceived. If Goro consents to bo
employed for this nurnoso It mny
saiciy oo taken ns an indication that
no was sincero when ho announced
more thnn n year ago that ho was
without further political ambitions,
What was known nH tho Goro fol
lowing was composed of farmers nnd
laboring men chlofly. and at least
tnrco-iourtns ot tnom aro now sun
porting Wnlton becaiiso ot his ultra.
progressive platform. It la Incon
cclvnble that oven Goro himself
could divert them to a national
banker tnndklato. und tho result of
nucn nn attempt would likely ho to
ruin uoro witn nis former friends
without helping Owen. Tho Interests
that are supporting Owen wouldn't
mind seeing Goro ruin himself; hut
thero Is no record of Goro over per
muting nimsoir to rail into a trim
like that, blind though ho Is. Goro
may como to Oklahoma, ns ho does
Hometlcsi but thero Is ho Indication
that he has lost his mind.
The claim of banker Owen that
ho has also enlisted former
Governor Haskell ln his behalf to
tho extent of a few speeches is also
to bo taken "cum grnno sails." It
has not been tno custom In Oklaho
ma for former governors nnd former
sonators to assumo tho prerogative of
dictator in tho matter of whom the
people shall select for their public
servants, and such a policy would bo
about as popular now as tno ad

particular Sunday camo to ho, known
as Mothering Sunday.
IJverybody ln Tulsa Is going a
mothering today. Not all of thorn
who will maku tho pllgrlmago will
be youths and maidens and not all of
them will bo nhlu to actually look

"Christ is risen 1" Such
hood executed in ,tho most momentous event in human
histbry. And the lovo thus demonstrated remains tho
supreme forco in human affairs.
It Is not at all singular that men should sot apart a
day to commemorate the office of motherhood, nor to
sanctify that day by repaying a modicum of that full de
votion to which sho has concentrated her. life.
Woman la a wondrous creature even at eg
worst. She attains her best only- when she enters
the Valley of the Shadow to make the supreme
sacrifice tn reproducing her kind, emerging a
glorified being. Then It requires no Imagination
of painter to sec above her head the halo of di
vinity. Between mere womanhood nnd motherhood thoro is
as great a distance as separates hud from flower, ambition
from realization, practice from purpose. Woman is great
and glorious only ns sho awakens tho best thero is in
man, giving promise of hor ultimate sacrificial devotion
upon tho altar of Deity's purpose.
Woman in the forum may bo wonderful ; -but in tho
home, beside tho cradle, sho is glorious! And at eventide,
when tho hearts and minds of those sho gave being, turn

place, sho may, and often docs, maintain hor parity with
the best of mankind challenging unstinted admiration and
praise from her critics. Rut it is only when yielding to
her divine office, either in the home or 'midst the curse
of war, that she rises to tho sublime heights where tho
