OF LEGISLATION
Pair Sex Played Important
Part in Last Session
in New State
GUTHRIE, Okla., May 14. Despite
tho stringent anti-lobby law passed by
tho first state legislature, a number of
very active lobbies wore- maintained
during tho recent logiidativo session.
Somo of them called forth cbnsidornblo
criticism. Most of it was directed
against the county officers' lobby, which
were hero in connection with tho fco
and salary bill. Thoir activity was
so great that it came in- for especial
mention in ono of tho goernor's mes
sages, and was directly condemned in
a resolution adopted bV tho house of
representatives, which was, however,
rescinded on tho following day, many
of tho members who voted for it origin
ally having gotten "cold feet" in the
meantime
Tho criticism Was directed for tho
most part to tho fnct that the bill did
not directly affect tho prosont officors,
as it would not become effectivo until
tho new officers wero oloctcd this fall,
and as tho governor stated in his mes
sage, it was not incumbent for tho pres
ent officers to becomo candidates for
re-election if thoy did not liko the pro
visions of tho law.
The only reason why any objection
was made to lobbying 'along' that line
was ,thiit members became weary of
tho importunities of their ofllco-holdinff
constituents. There was no claim that
there was anything corrupt and vicious,
ns has been tho case oi somo Oklahoma
legislatures. There havo been rumors
of occasions when considerable sums
changed hands in an effort to influence
legislation, and mnny more when tho
desired result was accomplished by in
direct means.
Women Lobbyists Acting
The presenco of women lobbyists,
who wore sometimes tho employee of
ono houso or tho other, and sometimes
outsiders, has often been a very effect
ivo means of promoting legislation. A
sturdy country legislator, who could not
'bo bribed in supporting any particular
measure, may ofton bo susceptible to
feminine charms and may vote for tho
little "harmless bill' to which his at
tention is directed by tho fair lobbyist,
or if ho balks at tho last moment he
may bo coorced into voting tho right
way by what is rcaHy nothing less than-
Another mothod, which is possibly
less vicious, but oven moro corrupt, was
described in somo detail by Walter
Tcrguson, editor of tho Cherokee Re
publican, who was hero this week. He
lias been around several legislatures,
"both as an employo and a nowspaper
correspondent, and knows the, insido of
things. Ho Said:
"It has been n custom since Okla
homa first beenmo possessed of a legis
lature, for .about half, if not more, of
tho colons to look for, a poker gnmo
as soon as thoy reached the capital.
It is whispered through tho rural dis
tricts by politicians who havo seen tho
pale lights, that to become popular and
get a good acquaintance in Guthrie,
poker must bo indulged in.
Lobbyists Good Poker Players,
"In most of theso games are also tho
lobbyists who desiro to influoneo, legis
lation. A successful lobbyist is essen
tially a good pokor player and prob
ably wins. Aftor tho rural member
lias spont his mileage and per diem in
tho game, tho old-timo fascination of
the greatest game in tho world hues
him on,' in tho hopo that ho can ro
coup his lost 'roll' and return to his
hamlet with something ,to show. Tho
check-writing habit seizes him, and the
lobbyist is tho first to offer to' cash
tho proffered paper.
"Senators and gamblers do not want
to cash these checks in Guthrie. Ex
perience nas taught them that about
ono in ten is good. But tho lobbyist is
anxious. Ho cashes tho check and tho
rural member plays on. Tho noxt night
ho is suro of winning, and another check
is cashed. Tho lobbyist never presents
tho check for collection, but folds it
i lip and preserves it for futuro refer
ence. "The good lobbyists novcr threaten or
blackmail. Thoy simply manifest a
kindness toward tho unsuccessful play
er by offering to hold tho checks until
it suits him to have them presented.
Tho legislator figures that ho can pull
down a good winning somo time and
tako up all tho checks at ono time.
Then, having given Mr. Legislator tho
favor of holding his worthloss check,
tho lobbyist in turn asks a favor, that
tho rural member voto a certain wa3"
on 'a harmless littlo bill.' "
"I'm doing my best to get ahead,"
asserted Cholly.
"Well, heaven knows you need one,"
assented Dollie. Cleveland Leader.

Old Woan Fined
Immense Sum for
Smuggling Cards
VIENNA, May 14. An old woman
living near the Bohemian-Saxon fron
tier, has been condemned to a fine of
$210 or two months' imprisonment for
bringing into Austria an old pack of
cards which had boon given td her for
her grand-children to play with, and
which sh0 had failed to dcclaro at tho
Austrian custom house.
Tho duty would havo been 3 cents,
but the judgo fixed tho flno at $3.60 on
ovory card in tho pack, or over 6,000
times tho duty. As tho old woman, who
keeps herself by collecting horbs, is
unablo to pay tho fine, and would prob
ably not survivo imprisonment, she has
sent in a petition to tho emperor ask
ing for a froo pardon, which his maj
esty, will doubtless grant.
Another woman, over 70 years of ago,
who is also believed to be tho victim of
n miscarriage of justice, collapsed tho
other day on tho steps of tho ministry
of justico in iVtnna. Sho and her hus
band had, as thoy considered, been un
justly condomncd by a judgo at their
native place, Radzuchowy, in Glicia,
to a lino for assaulting a neighbor.
They started a fortnight ago to walk
tho 300 miles to Vienna, but the man
broke down two days' march away.-His
wifo loft him behind and reached Vi
enna alone. Sho asked tho way to the
ministry of justico, bu"t when sho reach
ed tho ministry sho was overcome by
excitement and fatiguo and swooned
away.

Social Doings in Capital

Mrs. Taft Dismisses Secre
tary Alice Longworth
to Have Salon
By ELINOR COLINS.
(Written expressly for this newspaper.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, May 14.
Mrs. Taft created a mild sensation by
'dismissing her social secretary,' Miss
Kat Dandrigo Spiers, after two weeks'
service.
The only reason thus far assigned by
tno social intorcstetf world is that Miss
Spiers was not "up" in international
social etiquette, for tho membors of
tho international diplomatic corps aro
indeed sticklers on etiquotte to say
nothing of a few of our own dignitar
ies. That is, the members of the foreign
delegation, as well as our own justices,
senators, cabinet officers, etc, are will
ing to stir up an awful row, and in a
remarkably short space oi time, if they
are not seated at a tables in oxact ac
cordance with their official rank and
station. They justify their sensitiveness
as to "precedenco and seats of honor"
with tho explanation that whilo they
arc somewhat indifferent as individuals,
tho dignity of their offices requires
them to insist upon recognition such as
thoy are officially entitled to. This
they will have, oven though it is neces
sary to resort to arms.
"Uncle .Too Cannon is ono of our
own great men who insist upon every
thing that is cominf to them in the way
of social honors. The Speaker refus

Su ltan Brother;
ho was not properly seated at tho ban
quet table.
An amusing story is told of a western
senator who invited all of the dinlo-
jnats and dignitaries to dine with him
on tho same evening.
When he went to tho state depart
ment to ask advico about seating his
guests, he was told that tho puzzle
eould not be worked out without giving
oitense to somo one, ana tno only course
left for him to pursue was to fall ill
and recall his invitations.
Washington society is on the qui
vive, for a gentle rumor has floated
forth that wo aro to have a "salon,"
to bo presided over by no less a grande
damo than .uirs. Longworth.
It will not be a surprise to those who
have watched the spectacular social
career of Alice Roosovolt Longworth,
to learn that she intends to introduce in
Washington, America's real social cent
er, a salon ,copied after those with
which Paris dazzled the world during
tho seventeenth and eighteenth cen
turies. Mrs. Longworth has scvoral of tho
requisites essential to the success of
such a uniquo social enterprise, such as
wit, spirit, position Jand wealth.
Just which class df tho 'French salon
Mrs. Longworth will reproduco (theo
are three distinct schools) is not known,

Signor Luzzati to Reform
Legislative Body
ROME, May 14. Before tho new gov
ernment is much older, according to
iwclldnformed politicians, Signor Lu
zati will set about reforming thetsenate.
Meanwhile the public is joining in; tho
discussion as to how it should bo done.
Contrary to the British agitation, the
outcry hero is that the upper house
should be more active and assert itself
more.
Part of this inertia is duo to the rulo
that nobody can enter the senate before
the ago of 40. Many of tho senators
are indeed weary old men whose active
work is over. Others ore officials dis
posed to let things run smoothly and
disinclined to bo aggressive.
Senator Pierantoni, a prominent law
yer, advocates tho reduction of tho min
imum age of admission to 30 audvtlie
election of ono senator from every two

PARIS, May 14. Andre Laturbe, a
young Parisian who thought he had
solved the problem of living at other

for a most ingenious fraud.
His method was to go to a fashionable
restaurant and dine well. When he got
to tho cheese stage he produced from
his pocket a little tin box full of
spiders. To execute a couple of spiders
on the plate from which he was eating
his cheese was tho work of a ninstant.
Then he caHed the waiter and protest

food with spiders in it.
On the arrival of the manager he

lee of th3 University of California was
beg"11 today in commemoration of the
founding of tho institution and the
work it has accomplished during the
fifty years of its existence. Hundreds
of graduates and other friends of the
university aro returning for the semi-
centennial celebration. In honor of the
occasion tho city of Berkeley as well as
tne college buildings and grounds is
profusely decorated in the university
colors, blue and gold.
Tho program prepared for the celebra
tion is replete with interesting and at
tractive features and includes the reg
ular commencement exercises of tho un
iversity. Tho senior ball, the presen
tation of a Greek play and a big ath
letic meet on California field are among
the events scheduled for the remainder
of this week. The athletic meet is to
be held tomorrow and will have as its
participants the crack athletes of the
five great universities of the Pacific
coast Washington, Nevada, Oregon,
Stanford and California.
Tne baccalaureate sermon is to be de
livered Sunday- and on the following
day there will be numerous class and
fraternity reunions and other affairs of
a social nature.
Tuesday has beeh set aside for the
main exercises of the golden jubilee
celebration. The day's program will be
gin in the morning with the delivery
of the jubilee addiess by President Ar
thur T. Hadley of Yale university.
In the afternoon a "good of the un
iversity" will be held in the Greek the
ater. A monster illuminated parade Tuest
day night, marching through the streets
of Berkeley and across the campus, will
furnish the big spectacular feature of
tho celebration. The pageant promises
to be, one of the most magnificent af
fairs of its kind ever seen in this sec
tion of the country. A huge dragon,
manipulated by'studeuts of the univer
sity from China, wMl be one of the
special features. The Japanese students
will also have a unique lloat in the
pageant and the Indian students and
tho Spanish students will contribute
unique features. At tho conclusion of
the pageant there will be a grand pyro
technic display on the university camp
us. Tho university was founded first as
the College of California, and from a
humble position has grown to be one
of the most important centers of educa
tion in the United States, while among
its graduates are numbered scores of
men who have distinguished themselves
in tho professions, in commercial life
and in the political world.
The "father of the university" was
Professor Henry Durant, who estab
lished a school in Oakland in 1853. The
College of California was, through his
influence and suggestion, incorporated
in 1855, and he was enabled to bring
about the organization as a working
institution some four or five years later.
Prof. Durant continued his connection
with the institution until ho was en
abled to bring about the consummation
of his hopes by merging it into the Uni
versity of California. This he accomp
lished in 1SG9 when the College of
California, which up to then had been
maintained as a private corporation,
transferred its rights to the University
of California, which had been organized
and approved by the legislature the
year before. Prof. Durant became the
first president of the university and
served in that capacity for about a
year.
Since 1871, in which year. President
Durant resigned, the university has had
seven presidents, as follows: Daniel
Coit Gilman, 1871-70; John Le Conte,
1876-S1; William Thomas Reid, 18S1
80; Edward Singleton Holden, 18SG-8S;
Horace Davis, 18S8-90; Martin Kellog,
1893-99; Benjamin Ide Wheeler, 1899
1910. John D. Rockefeller would go broke
if he should spend his entire income try
ing to prepare a better medicine than
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarr

or bowel complaints. It is simply im

has used it. Sold by all dru'ggists.
UTILIZING EOUGH STRAW
