Glitches says that there is already great activity around Portales where operators and leasers are pouring in. One day last week there were fifty-eight transfers of leases recorded in the office of the county clerk. The Ada men have formed a company styled the Nu-Mex Oil company with headquarters at Portales, and a number of them are on the ground expecting to stay until the well is completed. The rig is being erected and work will be pushed vigorously. The geologists say three sands should be encountered af 1,200, 1,800 and 2,400 feet, but the Nu-Mex officials are prepared to drill 3,600 feet in order to make a thorough test. The Ada men at the head of the companv are J. D. Lasater. president; J. \V. B rown, vice-president; C. G. Anderson, secretary; Charles F. Burden, treasurer. These men with Hon. W. E.

Ever since the morning of July 21. 1917. when 1.186 mine workers anil their alleged sympathizers were forcibly driven from Bisbee, the deportations have been a source ot discussion in this state and throughout the West.

CHIEF EXECUTIVE HAS TAKEN NO A1TITON ON APPROPRIATIONS; NO SIGNATURES THIS WEEK. WASHINGTON, July 12.—President Wilson still had before him yesterday appropriation bills passed recently by congress and it seemed doubtful whether any of them would be signed this week. The president w’as understood to feel that the measures, carrying appropriations of more than $2,000,000,000 deserved deliberate consideration. It was indicated at the white hous» that the president was devoting c onsiderable attention to the rider on the agricultural bill repealing the daylight saving law. He has before him many petitions, some urg.ng that he sign the bill and others that he veto it. So far as can be ascertained the president’s mind still w’as open. Ready for Conference. Na appointments for Mr. Wilson had been made at the white house I yesterday. However, the president was holding himself in readiness to meei the senate foreign relations conin.ittee informally or in formal session and also to confer with senators who might desire to discuss the peace treaty. It was indicated that the president had not yet begun preparation of the address to be delivered to the senate when he presents the , treaty with France by which the Fnittd States would go to that republic’s aid in case of unprovoked attack by Germany. Just when the treaty would be submitted seemed uncertain, but it was considered likely that this would be done before Mr. Wilson Firm Hand Needed to Stop Chaos In Border Nation Says N. Y.

Strike Cause of Trouble. The deportations grew out of the :iik« oi copper miners called in the Warren copper mining district on June 26. 1917. The strike was called bv the Industrial Workers of the World, and was not sanctioned by the International Union of Mine, Mill and Smeltermen. The demands of the strikers included Increased pay, six dollars a day for under-j ground work and five dollars and a half for surface workers, a six-hour day and improved working conditions.

MUCH INTEREST IN TOMORROW'S GAME Much more interest is looked for in the ball game to be played at the lair grounds tomorrow than has been seen heretofore in the games. There are several reasons for this. The game tomorrow’ will be played with Holdenville. Joe Jacobs, old Ada player, will do the pitching for the visiting game. The game w’ill bt* called at 3:30 p. in. The Ada men have reorganized this w r eek and have been having regular practice, which has put them in condition to play the fastest ball they have had this year. The fair directors have granted permission for cars to be parked inside the ball grounds tomorrow’. This will be much better than heretofore as many people have remained away from the games because they could not watch the game from their automobiles. This will also give room for a great many people in the grand stand.

Tears were trickling down the cheeks of hundreds of men and women as Rev. M. F. Ham brought to a close his second evening sermon at the big tabernacle last night. In closing the address he sang “My Mother’s Prayer,” and the picture painted brought back such memories to his hearers that many were overcome with emotion and they made no effort to control their feelings. The service last night was not as largely attended as at the opening on Charging that state department been “one series Mr. La Guardia sufficient reason to compel the definite policy continued: Something Is Wrong. ► “Everybody seems to know’ Thursday night. However, the crowd last night was more interested than the one previously and all sat with mouthy open to catch every word that fell from the lips of the speaker. Nobody left the building until the sermon was finished. At the service last night Rev. Ham took no text.
