Hines, director of transportation, in the war department, and Lord Reading, representing the British government. Secretary Baker, it was learned today, has approved the agreement, which fixes a price a little more than half that tentatively put forward by the British government at the beginning of the negotiations. The total cost of the British tonnage used in troop transportation is estimated at $83,767,250, the number of men carried having been 1,027,000.

Suit for damages was filed against the Frisco yesterday by Pat Mann The Ardmore Chamber of Commerce, through Mr. J. M. Hoard, Of that city, is making a strong bid for the next state reunion of the United Confederate Veterans. Mr. Hoard brings a letter of invitation to the veterans, now meeting in Ada, signed by the officials of the Chamber of Commerce, in which everything the veterans could desire is offered. Since the Confederate Veteran’s Home is located at Ardmore it does seem that it would be the logical place for a state convention, and many of the veterans interviewed by the News are favorable to Ardmore. The letter from the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce to the veterans now assembled at Ada is as follows: “August 23, 1919. “To the United Confederate Veterans, in Convention Assembled, Ada, Oklahoma. Gentlemen: “The Ardmore Chamber of Commerce extends to you a cordial and earnest invitation to hold your next annual meeting in Ardmore. “In extending this invitation we beg to say that Ardmore is now the fourth city in population in Oklahoma; that it is the metropolis of the southern half of the state; that we have ample hotel facilities, including a hotel not excelled by any in the state; that if hotel facilities should be overtaxed by the people in attendance that our homes are open to receive you; that we offer you as a meeting place the most commodious convention hall in the state, owned by the municipality; ever attempted by any country.

I hey know how the Southern armies held that flag aloft tor four, long, bleeding years and held it stainless through all the storms of war. They know how those armies withstood the crash of cavalry on a thousand fields of glory.
