NENA roil HARRISON'S
SPEECH COMPLISH ATED
From Harlow’s Weekly.
One of the most able speeches heard upon the floor 01 the Senate at this session was delivered by Senator j Luther Harrison of Ada in bt* Ii a 11 I of th** graduated land tax proposal.
I He laid great stress upon the seriousness of the tenant farmer problem in Oklahoma, declaring that there are j 110,600 of these in the state, most of them living iu one-room shacks un-i der conditions' of abject poverty front * which they could not emerge. There are approximately 96.606 Oklahoma soldiers. 25,000 of whom, he declared, came from tenant homes and who, in th** army for the first time in their lives, have had plenty to eat and wear and comfortable and sanitary quarters to live in during most ol their service. These, Harrison asserted, would come home to their tenant hovels and demand of the state that it do something to cure this great evil. Harrison expiessed th** belief that adoption of the graduated land tax measure, forcing landlords to release excessive holdings by taxing such lands so heavily that they would sell them, would greatly ald in solving Hits tenant problem.
Harrison described conditions In Seminole, Hughes and other counties, which were the scene of the Working Glass union draft riots, and at-! tributed these uprisings to the fact fhat for miles around there are only tenant farina with few schools and practically no opportunities for enlightenment and progress.

Last evening approximal**!)* a thousand people. mostly adults, heard Dr. Wallace M. Crutchfield’# answer to the question; "Is Married Life a Failure?” The great church was thronged to its utmost capacity with chairs as well as the usual seating facilities. From tin* moment the speaker began, the audience was absolute attention even to the remotest seat in the gaiery. Delicate matters touching marriage and the marriage relationship were presented in .1 delicate way. It was evident that the people wore with the speaker in sentiment aud sympathy. It is a rare thing for so many people to attend divine worship in Ada as were present ut the above mentioned meeting at the First Methodist church.
