The bill is the result of many months of hearings and much work by the subcommittee which, besides Mr. Cummins, iucludes Senators Kellogg of Minneesota, Pondexter of Washington. republicans; and Pomorene of Ohio, and Robinson of Arkansas, democrats. The salient provisions of the Cummins bill includes the following:

Political ache resumed long reassembles in October. Premier Lloyd George is expected to remain in France another' fortnight, but he has practically finished his holiday.
Interest here centers about the had been introduced new' campaign of the new spa peri referred which is reminiscent with the one which overthrew the Asquith government. This campaign seeks to make Andrew Bonar Law. government leader in the House of Commons. tho scapegoat of any government mistakes and shortcomings and to exhonorate the premier on the ground that Mr. Law was virtually acting premier in London while Mr. Lloyd George was engaged at the peace conference at Paris. The aim of the campaign seems to be to discredit the conservative element of the coalition government and to prepare for the possibility after the next general election of bringing out a labor cabinet, of which Premier Lloyd Georce could assume leadership.
Yesterday w as Labor Day and a; great day it was for (he toiling millions throughout the nation.
Labor Day is one holiday that has* become almost universally observed by all classes.
With the labor and industrial sit-, nations of the country practically in the hollow of their hands, the labor unions of the nation have been able to make this particular holiday one of the most popular on the calendar.
The day was fittingly observed by the working people of Ada and Pontotoc county. The big W. O. W. picnic held at the city lake southeast of town offered a splendid retreat for those who longed for the woods.

Veterans of A ll American Wars May A malgamate
By the Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 2.—A
movement looking to the amalgamation of all organizations of veterans ot American wars may be started at the twenty-first annual national encampment of United Spanish War Veterans which opened here today.
Resolutions proposing ruch a merger have been prepared for presentation to the convention. Propon-!
taken the Sunday I score and Fort the Monday morn-scxr-e of 8 to 3. the two teams clashed Monday afternoon for the honor of the series. By taking advantage of the local team’s errors and hitting wrhec hits meant scores, the visitors snatched the last game by a 6 to 3 score and captured the series.
By most rules of the game, the Ada lads ought to have won the game. They let the bars dowm three ttimes, hut that three times was entirely too many. The Ada team hit ten times while the visitors were getting away with only eight. But Jennie kept the hits of Ada well scattered. On the other hand when the visitors touched Brazil for hits they touched him several times in succession, the six runs being made in three innings.
The star slugger of the day was Joe, a sluggish looking lad who played around third base for the visitors. To w’atch him wrork around the base, no one would suspect him of being one of the greatest sluggers ever seen on the local grounds. Out of five times at bat yesterday he ripped out a three bagger, a two bagger .and a single, and played an errorless game at third bag. He started the fireworks for the visitors and his team kept them going.
Paul Young, third sacker for Ada. was little less effective than his worthy antagonist. Paul hit three times, each being a single. He ran bases beautifully and fielded effectively. His hits were clean and well placed!
The pitchers were pretty evenly matched. While Brazil for Ada had j more in the w ay of curves and mys-i terious slants, he was no* at home in critical times nearly so well as I his midget opponent. With one or I two men on the bases, Jennie pitched, i his greatest ball. With men on the I bases, Brazil was a bit nervous and permitted the batsmen to touch him I too often.
