"The financial and economic situation in the United States," the letter said, "is the strongest in the world. With such inherent power the only thing that can overtake is prosperity, unless some catastrophe beyond human control should intervene." Summarizing the work of the Wilson administration, Mr. McAdoo also wrote: "A nation saved from the disaster threatened by the European war; prosperity restored; peace preserved; government administered in the interest of the people; back door influences destroyed; high moral standards maintained; all legitimate business safeguarded; the Tariff intelligently reformed; the federal re- state will have more money to lend as the law authorizes the issuance of the state's bonds, based on the educational fund as security, to the extent of many millions of dollars. The fund now has in money and securities close to 110,000,000. Appraisers are now at work in tbe northern counties of the wheat belt on school land which is to be sold this summer. These lands are valued at about $25,000,000. Mr. Smith has sold his Chandler Tribune to Messrs. J. C. Kerby, junior and senior, formerly of West Plains, Mo., father and son. These gentlemen come to Oklahoma with a fine list of recommendations as Democrats and as citizens. The entire Smith family is now domiciled at Oklahoma City and the secretary says he can now give every ounce of his energy and attention to the department. SOME IMPROVEMENTS "HATS OFF TO WILSON!" Sometime ago Superintendent Jno. R. Robe, of the Dwight Mission schools asked the county commissioners to grant him permission to lay a sewer line or� a certain section line from the Mission schools and it was granted. Upon receipt of his permission the superintendent got busy and called for bids on serve act enacted and a new and Putting in a water works and sewer safe financial system established; these are, in part, the democratic system.

Eas-lon, president of the Columbia Graphophone Company of New York in an interview. "I have never found business so good. I have voted the Republican ticket all my life, but my hat's off to Wilson. He is without doubt the greatest president we have ever had. Business men should stop howling and get to work. "As far as my own contact with the commercial world is concerned we are now at the highest of prosperity and we are going higher. Prospects everywhere are rosier than they have for years, "As a practical illustration of prosperity, the Columbia Graphophone Company is about to resume common dividends, which were suspended under the Roosevelt administration. At that time business men everywhere found it necessary to retrcncli and to cut profits and dividends. However, despite all the clamor of 'poor business' and 'hard times' we have found it possible to resume dividends at a higher rate than we were paying \Yhen forced to discontinue them under the Roosevelt administration ; and what is more, I have just let contracts for the erectjon of a $250,000 addition to our plant at Bridgeport, Conn. We are paying higher wages than ever before in the history of Bridgeport, which',is essentially a factory city, and are giving the men shorter hours for more pay than they ever saw before. On a recent trip to the Pacific coast I found evidences' not of returning prosperity,, but of prosperity that had arrived in huge chunks with lots more to come. It all recalls to mipd my original thought when I heard the news of'Woodrow Wilson's nom^ ination. This was that the t)emo-crats had done the wisest thing they had ever Mtempted." > -------.-r.^--------r-:-----�� . , -* - -,' Watch^Y^Mr Children RE-ORGANIZING THE INDIAN AGENCY FORCE The reduction in the force at the Union Agency under the management of Superintendent Gabe Parker has resulted in some very material changes. The field work will be under the management of five superintendents assisted by eighteen field clerks. X . L. Irvine, who has been the field clerk at this point, under the old regime, has been assigned as the superintendent of Grady, Stephens, Jefferson, McClain, Garvin, Murray, Carter, Love, Johnson, Marshall and Bryan counties. Henry S. Tidwell has charge of Cherokee, Adair, Sequoyah, LeFlore and Haskell. S. ('.. Brink will look after Washington, N'dvvata, Rogers, Craig, Mayes, Ottawa. Tulsa, Okfuska and Okmulgee counties. Dave Shelby has Wag-oiu-r, Muskogee, Mcintosh, Lattimer, Piltsburg, Seminole and Hughes, (ioorge M. McDaniel takes charge of Choctaw, Pushmataha, McCurtam, I'ontotoc, Coal and Atoka. Mr. Irvine has made many friends (luring his assignment here whb will rejoice at his advancement in the work, but will note his departure from this field of labor with.sin-core regret. However, we all join in congratulations and wish him the same.success in his new territory. - HIS FIRST REPORT ^ GOVERNOR KEEPS BUSY day for their homes, a few remaip- j ing over until tomorrow.

Ureamic poisoning caused his death, according to his physicians, �. William Rockhill Nelson was founder, owner and editor of the Kansas City Star. Although he did not enter the newspaper business until he was nearly 40 years old, ht; brought to it such originality, ability and energy that he built up one of the greatest newspapers of the counr try. ;�� . markablc man Oklahoma has at the head of its affairs. Never in the history of the state has any new administration met with such general favor. The spectacle of the govr ernor and the legislature working hand in hand; appointments based on qualifications; salaries cut in a wholesalei^ and ruthless manner; rigid adherence to duty, and all the other characteristics of the new administration are being widely acclaimed from one end of'the state to the other. Letters are pouring in on the governor congratulating him, but the Williams head has not expanded and the new governor is moving along in the even tenor of-his way, After thuee months, these days find the new executive "on the job'* as he expresses it, with the samess faithfulness as the first day of hisr^ administration, up early ^and late | to hed; The strain has been severed and the ^governor .has yet to com-plain, but shows an occasional phjrs- :< ical sign of weariness^ His iron t constitution, .however, is expectedf to bear fip welL ^ ~ Being a bachelor; Govc^rnor'Wil-'Sc? liams transacts almost much bus-^ ines$ with callers in hia^roomsci^tj the Lee-HuQ^ns ^afte!^ ;sl?c o7clock 89'at nonit'^i Uo'^io ^iu/^t^A mo^t o'clock he J ..... razor.
