by Nt*ui Sp*ei*l Service
WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 4. Sections of the Cummins railroad reorganization bill which would forbid strikes by railway employes, continue to draw fire today before the senate interstate commerce commit tee.
Officials of the railroad brotherhoods attacked the proposals as a return to slavery in industry.
•’These proposals take away rights of citizeuship from railroad men.” P. J. MacN'amara. vice president of the Brotherhood of Firemen and Enginemen, said “It makes serfs out of men.”
W, N\ Doak, vice president of trainmen’s Brotherhood, said the sections ‘was the most bold attempt at bondage since the civil war.”
"You needn’t be afraid of organized strikes in this country,” he declared, “but you need be of organized mob strike. There is no way to* get the men back. This bill ply fosters I. W. VV.’hun and big union movement because it destroy sober organizations.”

CHICAGO. Sept. 25 An official announcement that slab and rail mills of the Uni ted States Steel Corporation plant at Gary, Ind., had returned to work, which would be, the most extensive resumption of work in the Chicago district since The steel strike began Monday, was counterbalanced today by the 195 steam engineers at the Illinois Steel Co., at Gary being ordered out on sympathetic strike by the local unions. Five hundred men at Indiana Harbor. Iud., yesterday attended a meeting and demanded provision for their return to work. Speakers at the meeting stated that eighty per cent of the twelve thous-! and men on strike at six plants desired to resume work.
At Gary and South Chicago, according to labor leaders, the tendency of the men was not to return ; to work.
In the only rioting of the day lh, the Uhicago district one man was severely beaten iu South Chicago! last night.
CIRCUS VISITOR HELD LOR LARCENY
Fred Chapman was arraigned betoil Justice Brown this morning on a charge of grand larceny. He admitted taking $15.00 off the person of J. A. Johnson and was bouud •►'er to the district court and his bond fixed at $1,000. In default of bond he is yet in the county jail.
It seems that Chapman and Johnson. who live near Stratford, it is said, had come to Ada to attend the circus yesterday. According to Chapman s statement Johnson got drunk and while he was in an intoxicated condition Chapman took his money, intending to return it w’hen Johnson got sober. But Chapman him-selt proceeded to get drunk and spent the money paying their mutual hills. Johnson claims that he lost about $45.00. including his watch, bur Chapman admits taking only $25.00.

Pontotoc county took sixth place at the state fair in Oklahoma City, yesterday, according to a message received by the Evening News. This place was won in competition with thirty four other counties, and is really a remarkable showing when consideration is given to the fact that Pontotoc is just beginning to exhibit her products at the state fair. She won out over a number of older counties that have been exhibiting regularly for many years and have, therefore, learned what to exhibit and how to arrange their display to the best advantage. Blaine county ranked first yesterday.
The showing made by Pontotoc county under the circumstances will be of inestimable value to the county from an advertising standpoint. No; county in Oklahoma produces finer products or a greater variety of them, and it is to the interest of the county to establish this fact by displaying its products at the state fair. But Pontotoc county is not. in the habit of taking less than fliest place in anything, and every citizen of the county should make up his mind right now that he will co-operate with others and help take flown first money at the 1920 fair.

How The Strike Began
At the national convention of the American Federation of Labor, held in St. Paul in 1918. it was decided to organize tailor in the steel industry and to demand recognition of the unions.
On May 25, 1919, a conference of international union officials was held and a committee of five named to wait on Judge Cary ot the United States Steel Corporation.
A letter, written under the direction of Samuel Gobi pc cb, president of the American Federation of Labor, was sent Judge Gary asking poration.
Judge Gary wrote labor collectively.
The committee railed hearing.
On July 20 the presidents to tall for a strike vote.
On August 20, the returns

An appeal was dispatched to President Wilson asking him to endeavor to bring about a conference between the union representatives and steel corporation officials.
Intervention of federal authorities was unavailing.
Orders were issued calling on all steel workers to quit work-on .September 22.
President Wilson, after the strike vote had been announced, issued a new appeal for a postponement until after the capital-labor "round table” meeting in Washington, October 6.
This appeal was considered at a meeting of the national committee for organizing steel workers in Pittsburgh September 17, but was turned down
WASHINGTON. Sept. 2J The first session of the full house Indian I affairs committee inquiring into the treatment of the American Indian was held this afternoon, with Commissioner Cato Sells as the first witness. The hearing lasted tour hours. Only general matters were gone into. and the commissioner surprised the members by the readiness with which he answered questions. In opening the hearing Chairman Homer I*. Snyder of New York made it plain that the inquiry had no poliii-cal aspect, but was held for the purpose of having Hie bureau and congress both function more to th** benefit of the Indian.
Most of the questioning was bv i Congressman Heber of Pennsylvania, Rhodes of Missouri and Kgston of I California. At the close of the hearing. Congressman Elston read to Mr. Sells a long list of detailed questions he would be expected to answer in the two days more he is ! to he on the stand. Commissioner | Sells denied that the bureau was I being expensively administrated. He said that the increased expense rs due to the fact that thousands of individual Indians are now dealt with whereas formerly only the su-I perintendents of the tribc*s were I dealt with.
The commissioner also denied that many Indians go back to wearing blankets and lapse into their old i ways after leaving the reservation j schools. He said the influence of the I medicine man on any reservation is now negligible. Both Congressman! I Carter and Hastings of Oklahoma were present at the hearings.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. Even should the United States Steel Corporation consent to meet representatives of the men. the nation wide strike of steel workers could not now be called off in the opinion of John J. Fitzpatrick, chairman of the strikers’ committee, as expressed today at the opening of the senate labor committee’s investigation of the strike.
"The 350,000 men on strike,” Fitzpatrick declared, “are going to demand from the United States government justice, decent justice.”
Fitzpatrick was the first witness nailed in the investigation which is to determine whether remedial action can be taken by the federal government. Fitzpatrick was accompanied by Wm. M. Rubin, counsel for the steel strikers who at the outset demanded to know what assurance had been given by Judge Elbert H. Gary, chairman of the board of the United States Steel Corporation, that he would appear before the committee next Wednesday.
Senator Kenyon replied that Judge Gary had telephoned him that he wrould be present Wednesday and added that “until that time we will not question his being here.”
Fitzpatrick opened his statement with a brief history of laho tions in the steel industries. in w’hich he said a campaign was begun with the object of driving oi-ganized workers out of the mills. “A great sum of money,” he said. “either two millions or twenty millions of dollars was appropriated for this purpose.”

Diamonds were first discovered in Arkansas in 1906. The “chimneys” in which they were found were like those of South Africa and were filled (with peridotite which is closely akin to the South African kimberlite. The Hest year 140 diamonds were taken out, ranging from 1-64 to 6 carats. The mines had turned out about 5,000 diamonds up to 1918 of a val-! ue of about $20,000.
If tinder up-to-date mining methods, the Arkansas chimneys should yield diamonds in quantites in any way comparable to the output of the South African fields, they win become the richest mining properties on the American continent and convert their owners into millionaires overnight.
