OKLAHOMA CITY, June 12. When a person voted in 1914, that fact being established, no other condition under the election law of the State, can prevent him from voting in all subsequent elections, being otherwise qualified, is the holding of the Attorney General’s office is an opinion written by Assistant Attorney K. E. Wood, to F. G. Jordan of Shawnee. Jordan explained that in 1914 he was a resident of Jackson county and voted. Later he removed to pawnee. However, he did not register in any subsequent period for registration. He says that the registrar in his present location refuses to register him and that he cannot vote.  The election law of 1916 is pointed to in the opinion just rendered. In providing for registration it specifies that registrars must issue to those person voting in 1914 certificates of registration, and that na matter if those registration certificates are not issued for any cause. it will not prevent the voter from voting in any election in the state. These are the words of the statute and they are literally construed the attorney general. Jordan served that ne knew of many case< similar to his own.

Th* re was increasing belief in peace conference circles here today that the reply i to Germany’s counter proposals would not be ready for delivery before next Saturday night.  Five days have been definitely fixed as the limit within which time the Germans must decide upon their course.  It is doubtful if the diplomats in charge of the affairs of the allies will quibble much longer with the enemy, as there are many reasons to believe that their patience is almost exhausted.

From the headquarters of the Marine Corps in Washington, D, C., has come an urgent call for professional motor mechanics for duty with the aviation forces. Men who are proficient in this line of work will be enlisted for a period of four years. If they have had no prior service in the Marine Corps they must first undergo the regu lar three months of preliminary military training before being assigned to aviation units. While the mechanics* primary duty will be ground work only, nothing stands in the way of his qualifying himself as a flyer.  Aviation is the nearest branch of Marine activities. While the coming of peace has caused a d^ c ^ ne  of aerial activities in military ma-nouevers, aviation is daily growing stronger in the Marine Corps because a Marine’s wars are never over. At the present time the Marines are using aeroplanes in combat with the bandits of Haiti and Santo Domingo. This method of putting down disturbances has proved so successful that aviation bases may soon be established in all parts of the world where aMrines are serving.    *  Where there are no Marine Corps recruiting stations, applicants can present themselves to their local postmasters or write for full information to the Marine Recruiting Station, 212 1-2 South Main, St., Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The special offer of six months in France and Germany, followed by immediate discharge, still holds good in the cases of former soldiers and marines who are ablebodied, healthy and have been honorably discharged.  Florida Women In Vice Crusade; Tab on Hubby  By tit** A SKoc J at **4 Presa  TAMPA, Fla., June 12. -Five hundred Tampa women have formed the Women's Protective League and say they propose to clean up organized vice by direct action—that they propose to undermine its support.  By the establishment of a sort of moral credit bureau this organization proposes to furnish any woman a confidential report on the ‘double life” of her husband if she want* one. The inquirer does not even need to give her own name in making the inquiry; she may designate a post office box address or any place where an agent of the league may deposit the report on its investigation.  Organizers of the bureau say that seventy of their number have pledged to do the investigating work in the open while the remainder will work in secret.  “So many have such old reprobates for husbands,” said one of the chiefs, “they can’t work openly because their husbands won’t let i them. Therefore they will work  WASHINGTON, June 12. It was H. P. Davison, of the banking house of J. P. Morgan & Co., who gave him a copy of the peace treaty. Elihu Root, former senator and secretary of state, told the senate foreign relations committee today.  Root was the first witness called when the committee resumed its probe of treaty “leaks.”  Sentiment was expressed by Root at President Wilson’s “suggestion” that nobody in possession of the treaty in this country had a right to “communicate it.”  Root declared that the treaty was “public property” inasnuic bas Germany had given the document publicity.  He justified Davison’s possession of it because of Hie Newt York banker’s connection with the American Red Cross war activities. He said he resented Senator Hitchcock’s charge in the senate that copies of the treaty that might be in private hands in New York City were "stolen goods secured by bribery and corruption.”  As an “international banker” interested in the co-ordination of American financial and industrial interests for the rehabiliation of war-devastated Europe, Henry P. Davison, of J. P. Morgan & Co., secured a copy of the peace treaty at Paris, May 9, last, from Thomas F. Lamont, another member of the banking house, Davison told the com*  I mittee,  Davison said he was also interested in the text of the treaty as chairman of the board of governors of the league of Red Cross societies, modeled after the league of nations.  When he left Paris with the treaty he was under the impression that it was “public property,” he said. When he discovered it was not, upon his arrival at New York he locked his copy up and since then no one had seen it except Elihu Root because he knew Root, “as a recognized authority on international problems, was being consulted from Paris bv those engaged in the  By the Associated Press  NEW YORK. June ll.—John C. Spooner, former United States Senator from Wisconsin, died here this morning.  Sixteen years a United States Senator from Wisconsin, each one of which, in the words of President Roosevelt, was “a direct financial loss which he could ill afford,” John Coit Spooner relinquished the position with which the legislators of his state had thrice honored him and retired in 19U7, two years before his completed term, to re-enter the private practice of law and ac-, quire a competence for his family and himself in his declining years. J  Regarded as one of the ablest, constitutional lawyers, a brilliant debater and one of the greatest authorities on international law in the upper house of Congress, Senator Spoon* i like a few of his famous colleagues notably Roscoe Cockling, John G. Carlisle, Thomas Brackett Reed and George F. Hoar - l**ft public office a poor man.  Upon his retirement in 1907 the New York Tribune said of him: “He goes now. at the age of sixty-! our. baline devoted sixteen years of his life to the service of his country* to resume the practice of his profession, without a contract or a clieut and with no reliance for tile future save his well earned reputation, while all who hav'* enjoyed the privilege of associating with him in his public career witness his departure with sorrow.”  Elihu Root, then Secretary of State, said of him:    “The resigna  tion of Senator Spooner is a public misfortune. The nation ow'es a debt of gratitude to the state of Wisconsin for contributing him to the work of the national government. He will be sadly missed when Congers* reconvenes and his old associates feel the loss of his wisdom, .strength and his courage.  Senator Spooner was intensely devoted to his family. He married in 1868 Miss Annie E. Main of Madison. Win. He had two sons, Philip and Willet.  As ’    Twix Bogs  and Girls, Tax Favors Fair Sex  TIS A COMPLICATED WORLD!

To Turn Wires Back.  By Hi** Associated Pres*  WASHINGTON, June 12.—A favorable report on the House bill to return the telegraph and telephone systems back to private control was immediately voted by the House inter-state commerce committee today.  375,000 Men To Come This Month  Let a Want Ad get It for you.  PARKS, June 12.- General Pershing has advised that he proposes to transport 375,000 men homeward during the month of June. This breaks all previous records for moving troops overseas and exceeds the number Great Britain moved across the channel in any month.  No date w’as set for resuming the hearing. The committee will meet tomorrow to take up Senator Knox’s resolution regarding the peace treaty.  Chairman Lodge, Senator Hitchcock and other comimttee members said later it was doubtful whether any further investigation w'ould be made, Mr. Lodge received a message from Paul M. Warburg, in which Mr. Warburg was understood to have disclaimed any knowledge of any copies of the treaty in New York.  That a by is a child up to 6 years and a girl is a child till she is 14 is establish^ by the vagaries of the internal revenue act section devoted to luxuries.  Now, if a boy more than 6 years old seeks to buy a hat costing so-and-so, he must pay the government a special war tax on the luxury of that hat. But if the buyer happens to be a girl, the tax is not collectable unless that girl be 14 years old and over.  Deputy internal revenue collectors are perplexed about how they are going to determine the ages of the boy and girl purchasers of hats, caps, clothing, boots and shoes. Ifs a complicated world, they say.  Meantime collectors and deputies are getting ready for the big rush of income tax payers this week. The second installment of taxes is due June 15th, which happens to be next i Sunday, Ro payments must be made by midnight of Saturday. Several millions of dollars are due and pay-! able.

The col p report for Oklahoma as issued by the Bureau of Crop Estimates of the United States Department of Agriculture, through its field agent for Oklahoma, forecasts a production of winter wheat of 57,835,000 bushels on a basis of 9 6 per cent con dition June I on 3,586,000 acres remaining for harvest. This is by far the largest wheat crop ever forecasted in Oklahoma, exceeding the very wonder-1 fill crop of 1914 by ten million bushels. The interest in the Oklahoma wheat crop has been most tense during the past three weeks, with the largest acreage remaining for harvest on May I, with the very high condition of 102 per cent on that date, coupled with the ravages; of the leaf rust, the attacks of !  the army worm, and continued rainy and cloudy weather. The reports from all sources over the state indicate a deterioration during the month of six points due to the effects of the rust, the army worm and the continued cloudy and rainy weather. The leaf rust, probably the most prolific infecta-tion ever known through this section has practically destroyed the foliage; only a few scattered re-1 ports of stem rust appear as late as June I. The damage to wheat from the leaf rust appears problem-a*icil although it is considerable in the aggregate. The damage from J army worms is serious in limited localities in the central and southwestern sections of the state, heaviest in dank wheat on law lands. Harvest bas started in a limited way in tim southern and southwestern sections of the state by June although most of the wheat was not ripening as fast as it should because of the lack of general sunshine and continued showery weather during the larger portion of the last week in May.  The Bureau finds from its various classes of reporters that the acreage seeded to oats this year was 116'- of that seeded last year estimating 1.601,000 acres with a  1  growing condition of IOO on June I forecasting a crop of 50.432,000 bushels. Tile crop in the central and western portions of the state are surely normal, or above, probably the best crop ever in prospect in these sections. The stands are good, the heads well developed and filled aud there has been no serious damage from any cause although the rust was showing up to a considerable extent about June I. With clear weather, the harvest will begin early in June. The oats crop is, therefore, probably the largest ever forecasted rn this state.  The acreage of barley is materially increased over that ever sown before in this state, being estimated at about 14,000 acres as against 8,000 acres last year, with a condition of IOO% on June I. forecast- 1  ing a crop of 285,000 bushels. Much interest has been taken in barley this year because of the success in feeding barley last winter. Harvest was well under way on June I. The condition of rye on June I, I OO %, forecasts a crop of about 140,000 bushels. The condition of “all hay”  | show r s a slight deterioration during the month of May owing to the damage of the army worm on alfalfa ,as well as excessive moisture in many low' places. Prairie grass is making a most wonderful growth but meadows are weedy as a result of the extreme drouth in 1918. { There is a slight increase in the acreage of alfalfa standing owing i to scattered seendings during the fall of 1918 and spring of 1919.; Just how much acreage will be abandoned on account of the dam- * age from army worms and overflows, can not be determined at this time. A very large proportion of the first cutting w'as damaged by rains before the crop could be cured thus making the amount of merchantable alfalfa hay decidedly small. Fruit shows a very high condition; peaches 85%. pears 82%, and small berries 94%. Cabbages and onions 95% and 99% respectively while watermelons and cantaloupes probably show the lowest condition of any crop on this due to the extreme wet weather, damage from cut worms and the necessity for replanting. Pastures show the remarkable condition of 97% on June I as against 90% on May I. the grass having made a most remarkable growth during the  month with the abundant supply of moisture but continue to be very weedy as a result of the drouth of 1918.'  Cotton on May 25 was reported at  65% condition as against 86% condition on same date in 1918 and 77% in 1917. The crop started out under unfavorable conditions, be-i ing from ten to thirty days late on account of the low' temperature, excessive moisture and with stands generally poor. Replating has been very heavy, seed is scarce such that some of the orginally inteded acreage may yet be abandoned. The Bureau is revising estimates for 1918 crop following the final ginning figures determines that the acreage planted and in cultivation at the end of June, 1918, was 3,-190,000 acres; the acreage picked was 2,998,000 acres with a yield per acre of 92 lbs. lint cotton. The estimates of the acreage planted to cotton and in cultivation June I 25, 1919, will be made on July I.  ARRI \ ED IN OKLAHOMA CITY LATE LAST NIGHT AND PARADED THERE THIS MORNING.

The Day’s Isogram.  7:00—Reville for men sleeping  By the Associated Press  CHICAGO. June 12.—Both sides of the controversy, employers and employed, con.cerned in the nationwide strige of the Commercial Telegraphers’ Union of America, expressed satisfaction this morning over the results of the first day of the strike.  Officials of the Western Union and Postal said that the strike was “practically at an end,” while international president of the union, S. K. Konenkamp, declared that between eighteen and twenty thousand operators throughout all parts of the country quit w'ork yesterday and that before the day was over many thousand more would walk out.  The American Federation of Labor, now' convened in its thirty-ninth annual convention at Atlantic City, N. J., is reported to have prepared, yesterday, a resolution asking the electrical workers to call a nationwide telephone strike next Monday, in sympathy w'ith the telegraphers’ strike.  Reports received by the Associated Press from towns in various sections of the country, indicate that commercial telegraph business was ! not seriously interrupted in most instances.  A statement by President Newcomb Carlton of the Western Union that only about 166 persons, 121 of them operators, answered the strike call, brought from S. K. Konenkamp, international president of the Commercial Telegraphers’ Union of America, a -eraark that more *han that number of Western Union employes iii Chicago alone had jo’ned the shrike.  Burleson Said to Re Hiding.  As to Postmaster Burleson’s statement that he could not go beyond I the rulings of the w'ar labor board, Mr. Konenkamp said:  “If Mr. Burleson had been willing to abide by the decisions of the wrar labor board, J here would have been no trouble. It comes with poor grace from hir now' to try to hide I behind the br .ti.”  Denia By AV. U. E.  In a statement declaring only a few' Western Union operators had quit, Edward F.

Sixty-five per cent of all Western Union employes are represented in the association, he said.  “The association has an agreement w'ith the Western Union whereby it is recognized and is permitted to bargain collectively for wages and hours',” he said. “We obtained a 5 and IO per cent increase under Postmaster General Burleson and are promised adjustment of certain parts  of a schedule entered  on Main street to courthouse! thence j with the company which was  south to Grand avenue, east on Grand avenue to Broadway, thence norfch on Broadway to First and west on First to Hudson, thence to Frisco and Rock Island tracks to entrain for the journey on to the demobilization camp.

Balcony of the Lee Huckins was reserved for exclusive use of state and city officials, members of their families and guests.  War mothers viewed the parade from the balcony of the Skirvin hotel, which had been reserved for their benefit.  By order of police department and committee in charge of arrangements, parking of cars along the route of the parade and on First street between Hudson and Broadway was prohibited.  Latest information last night indicates it will be late this afternoon or early tonight before the arrival of the 111th Engineers, and if they parade it will be some time early Friday morning.  into not  fulfilled by the postmaster general.  Conditions Normal.  “Reports from locals in all sections of the country show' Western Union employes on the job w'ith a few' exceptions which are negligible.”  To substantiate his claims, Mr. Wach displayed telegrams from Association officials in various districts saying conditions were normal.  Methodist Membership Drive.  Notwithstanding the fact that this congregation received above thirty members during the previous month, they are putting on a June drive for a new' member for each day in the calendar of the month. There are Methodist people in the city who will prefer to join the church before the Ham-Ramsey Revival which begins on the first of July.
