Dec. 26.—Ninety-eight per cent of the 125,000 union railway machinists voted in November to strike with the other trades in the event congress enacted the Cummings railroad bill with its anti-strike provision.  In making this announcement today, William Johnston, president of the international association of machinists. said the vote was taken before the senate interstate commerce committee reported on the Cummings measure and the result was not officially published because the association did not want to appear in the attitude of attempting to threaten congress.  President Johnston explained that the strike vote stipulated that union railway machinists would quit work if the Cummings bill was passed by both branches of congress, not by one.  So far as labor officials are advised. they will not be given another! hearing by senate or house commit-' tees, but they will keep up the fighti against the auti-strike situation it was' said, and will appeal finally to Pren-I dent Wilson to veto the bill if it* should be enacted with the anti-; strike clause intact.  By th* Associated Press  LONDON, Dec.    25.—Professor  Patrick Geddes, town planner, who has in hand projects for the improving of Jerusalem for the Zkmiat Organization, aims at making the changes without destroying the historic and romantic aspects of the ancient city, according to a statement which he has given to the Zionist Bulletin.  Professor Geddes states that one of his first tasks will be in connection with the Hebrew University, and he hopes to begin on that next year, utilizing buildings already erected. Researcn laboratories for chemistry will be a feature of the school. Dr. Weizmauu, the Zionist iender, who has been reader in bio-chemistry at Owen's College, Manchester, will be in charge of the research work.  Professor Geddes says he hopes also to start a Palestine museum and suggests that nothing more of historical and archaelogical interest should go out of the country.  *—-  Poker Game Was Busted Up By the Local Officers  IO HHT UHM  UNDER THE ARMISTICE TERMS CAPTURED GERMAN VESSELS GO TO GREAT BRITAIN ON OUR ORDER.

City Sustained In Gas Hearing By High Court  By th* Associated Pres*  WASHINGTON. Dec. 26.—By direction of tho president, the former German passenger ships of the Im-perator group; now In New York harbor, are to be delivered to Great Britain, the shipping board announced today. The vessels are those assigned to the United States after the armistice for the repatriation of American troops and designated by the inter-allied naval council to be turned over to Great Britain under the armistice terms. The Imperator has already been delivered to the British.  Early in the negotiations a proposal was made by Chairman Payne of the shipping board that each country be permitted to use the vessels desired pending a final termination of the ownership. No action has been taken so far on this proposal and the transfer of the former German ships to Great Britain is made without any explanation other than that it was done by direction of President Wilson.

Wednesday afternoon at 4 o’clock, at the parsonage, a very pretty wedding occurred, when Mr. Dudley Young and Miss Alpha Shirley were united in marriage, by Rev. C. C. Morris, pastor of the First Baptist church.     %   The young couple expected to put it across some of their friends by not letting them know, but Cupid or someone told the friends about it, and just as Ref. Morris was beginning the ceremony, these friends came into the room. The groom was somewhat nonplused for a moment, but finally regained his composure and the ceremony was continued.  Miss Shirley is one of the most popular young ladies of the younger set and is at present teaching school at Morris, Okla. She will remain here throughout the holidays and will then return to her school to finish out the year.  The groom is a prosperous young business man and is at present connected with the Shaffer Oil company of Ada.  -it-  Aviators Were Murdered.  EL PASO, Texas, Dec. 26.— Lieuts. Cecil* Connolly and Frederick Waterhouse, American aviators who lost their lives after having been forced to descend in Lower California, were murdered, according to reports before the senate sub-committee today.  The appeal of the McThwaite Oil and Gas company from a decision of the district court of Pontotoc county has been dismissed, according to information reaching City Attorney J. W. Dean. The appeal to the high court was a part of the litigation arising from an order of the corporation commission issued in December. 1918. increasing the gas rates in the city of Ada.  It will be recalled by Ada citizens that late in 1918 the corporation commission issued an order permitting the McThwaite company to increase its rates from 25c per thousand to 35 cents. When this order was issued the city authorities went into district court with a petition asking for a forfeiture of the company's charter on the ground that the city had a contract with the gas company written in its franchise whereby the company contracted to furnish gas to consumers at the rate of 25 cents.  At the hearing on this petition Judge Bolen issued a temporary order restraining the gas company from putting into effect the increased rates. From this order the gas company appealed to the supreme court and asked for a writ prohibiting the district court from interferring in any way with the collection of the new rates or the management of the company. This appeal came up for hearing before the supreme court some time ago and the court's decision has just been handed down. The appeal is dismissed and the application for the writ of prohibition is denied.  Just what effect the dismissal of the company's appeal will have on the local situation is rather uncertain. As the matter stands today there is an order from the corporation commission permitting an Increase in the rates for gas service, and a temporary order from the district court restraining the company from putting the increased rate into effect. That further steps will be taken by the parties litigant is certain, but it is not certain what steps will be taken.  Bridegroom Misses Wedding.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
