Ten new field deputies are to be ap pointed by Grant Victor, V tilted States marshal, to carry out, the enforcement policy the attorney general recently Inaugurated, says a dii'paleb from Marshall Victor's office, at Muskogee. The orders for the appointment, of the nc-w deputies were received yesterday by th marshal and he began immedi ately to make the appointments. The appointment of these deputies will make more deputies In this district than in any other district in the I'nited States. The force will be more than doubled. Only eight field depu ties have been employed heretofore. The Impassibility f so small a force keeping down the introduction of li quor into eastern Oklahoma Is the reason for the appointment of the new assistants, Marshal Victor said. In Borne o the places the federal officials receive little or no aid from the state authorities and have to do all the work themselves. In others it is hard ly necessary for the deputies to be in the vicinity except for a short period at a time. "The trouble has been,'' the marshal said, "that while the deputies were workinK hard as they duld in one place there would be looseness In an- olher. The territory has been too large for the number wo hud prop erly to cover it; that's the reason for the new orders." The first of the new deputies to i" appointed is Hcry Knloe of drove, Okla. The others will be appointed as soon as the selections can be made. BORDER IS DESE 11 1 LiU BYREBE Federals to Mt.et Orozco Rebels Reported to Be Weakening Telegram by I'nited I'ress.

Trusts flourished more under Presi dent Koosevtlt's administration than under, any oilier in the history of the country. This was the way Gov.
