The jury in the case of R. M. Boddle, charged with killing Percy Barton. October 3 was completed about 9:30 Wednesday evening after two days and a half of hard work. The prominence of the parties involved and the widespread interest in the case made the securing of a jury rathei difficult. Following is the personnel of the jury: J. A. Motes, H. S. Derryberry, J. H. Taylor, J. B. Self. B. F. Craig, B. D. Nichols, Lee Nettles, Charley Lasem in, J. E. Crews, James Whitaker, Lee Collins, J. E. Crowder.
The trial opened this morning with an imposing array of counsel on both sides. The county attorney’s office is assisted by J. F. Mc Keel and W. W. Pryor of Wew*oka. The defense is represented by Robert Wim-bish, I. M. King, B. C. King and W. F. Schulte.
Sparring began during the opening statements, both beginning with the fight in the court room between Judge C. O. Barton, father of deceased, and R. M Roddie, the defendant, and each objecting to the
other going into the details of this trouble. Judge Dudley held that they might mention the fight as a means of throwing light on what followed but mled that the details and who was to blame in the affair had nothing to do with the matter, sine*- that was not the question at issue.
The statements indicated that there will be quite a bit of conflicting it stimony. The Slate will endeavor to prove that there was reason to believe that Roddie was looking for young Barton and the defense try to establish that he was looking for Roddie. At the preliminary hearing eye witnesses of the tragedy disagreed materially on the beginning of the trouble when the shooting took place and the statements indicated that the same will be true in this trial, the testimony of some being in favor of Barton and some for Roddie. The plea of defendant is self defense, he having been told the Bartons wrere looking for him threatening trouble, j
The state before noon had put M. E. Farr, Dr. S. P. Ross, Bob and Mack j Dickerson on the stand. Dr. Ross I testified to having been summoned J by deceased to go to his father’s office to give his bruises, received in ! the difficulty in the court room, attention, and to the nature of tho, wounds inflicted on deceased by the \ bullets.
The others were eye witnesses of the shooting and told of the meeting between the two in front of Hollow’s store.

BUENOS AIRES, Jan. 16.—At a conference with President lr! goy en yesterday labor leaders agreed to call off all strikes now in force with the exception of the harbor strike. The president promised he would do everything to meet the workmen’s demands.
The casualty recount shows between 850 and 1000 killed and between 3 500 and 5000 w’ounded as the result of the disorders of the past week. Probably the final figures will be higher.

chemist of the United States tariff ; commission, discussed that body s I recommendations concerning dyes aud coal tar chemicals.
Maximilian Toch, New York, chairman of the committee on maintenance aud preservation of the chemical industries, urged these steps:
A reasonable tariff.
An amendment to the Sherman act to permit co-operation of competitors.
A law to hold in bend foreign materials whose dumping here might cause disruption to American trade.
Requirement of sworn statements by foreign shippers as to the origin of all materials, to prevent importations from enemy countries.
Action to prevent foreign combi-|
I nations which might act in restraint of American trade, aud prohibition ; of importations from foreign com- , petitors selling goods below Amen-1 can manufactured coils.
Referring to the third of President Wilson's fourteen peace points, which favored removal of “economic I barriers," Mr. Toch said:
"I doubt very much whether the I real interpretation of this point has been made, and if the president meant that there should be free trade among the League of Nations, it will cause a bardship to those countries, coincidentally, w’here freight and the' cost of raw materials is higher than in other countries.”
Mr. Toch declared that “anybody who imagines Germany is commercially dead is laboring under a very great misapprenhenslon.” He said that Azo Scarlet dys, landed in America before the war, cost between 15 and 20 cents a pound, and that its manufacture in America today costs 85 cents a pound. He expressed tho belief that Germany or Switzerland could ship it here at less than the cost of manufacture in this country. He said more than 2,000,000 men and women are employed, directly and indirectly, in the chemical industries of the United States.
