Speaker Clark has just con
ferred an unusual honor upon
Representative Claude Weaver
of Oklahoma. During the time I
whan the teriff debates in the
House were the hottest and
friends and foes of the measures
were moving for every advant
age, the speaker called upon Mr.
Weaver to preside overthe House.
Th2 Oklahoman was in thd chair
for more than an hour and so
handled the affairs of the body

gratulations by colleagues older

That New Nickel.
As an example of "punk"
workmanship and de3ijn, the
new five cent piece is entitled
to the whole 1 akery. While the
idea is very American, the des
lgningand execution is decidedlj
crude. In the first place the lit
tle coin has the appearance of
being an embossed metal gain
wad, punehed out by guess with
a very dull punch. The figure of
the buffalo, or the great Ameri
can b'son, is set deeply in a bo 1
and has the appearance of being
a very sick animal, indeed, us
perharsheis. The Indian head
ii one of the sane tort id both
design and workmanship. And
the lettering on the ne.v coin is
small, and one must look care
fury lobe certain he has a five
cent piece and not a new style of
toba co tag. No, we don't like
thj now nickle, but don't under
stand that they will not be ac
cepted at this office in paymqnt
of your subscriptions Bring 'em
along Indian, buffalo and all, and
for twenty of them you will re
ceive the Miner for fifty-two
weeks just the same.
