Supervisor Hlnn Finds an Error
a* to First Name on the List Fur
Mayor Myers appears to have been right
In his contention, that, notwithstanding
th* vigilance of the supervisor of the cen
sus and his assistants, many people have
been missed by the enumerators. In order
to make a test of the correctness of his
view he notified the heads of several of
the city departments to instruct the
members of their forces to make inquiry
and report to their heads whether they,
the employes, and their families had been
Included in the enumeration.
The department of public works and
the fire department hade their reports
yesterday. l According to them it seems
that Just twenty-one employes were miss
ed In each department, together with
members of iheir families. The director
of Public works reports twenty-one fami
lies unenumerated, with a total member
ship of fifty-five. Superintendent Maguire
reports twenty-one firemen and their fam
ilies unenumerated, with a total of 103
members. Apparently the firemen have
If the city employes have exercised care
In obtaining their figures Mayor Myers’
contention Is amply supported. For forty
two families, with a membership of 160,
to have been missed in a comparatively
small circle is not a good showing for
the work of the enumerators. The twen
tyone firemen and the eighty-four mem
bers of their families make a total num
ber greater than the entire membership
of th fire department.
_ Mayor Myers forwarded (he figures to
Supervisor Blun with the request that he
give the matter such attention and inves
tigation as he may deem proper. Mr.
Blun has not had time to do this as yet,
but a casual glancing over the report of
the tire superintendent showed that it was
not without errors. Taking the first name
on the list and looking it up in the sched
ule of the enumerator for that district
Mr. Blun found that not only had the
party named been enumerated, but
that eleven other people in the
same house with him had also
been recorded by the enumerator.
He expects as he goes through the lists
to find a considerable percentage of those
reported to hove been already enumerated.
At the same time he expects to find a
good percentage who have been overlooked
and will see that they are given prompt
Supr. Screven stated last night that he
had Just made up his report and would
place it in the hands of the Mayor this
morning. The investigation by the police
does not show anything like the results
obtained by the members of the depart
ments of fire and public works. Supt.
Screven said that his reports showed only
two houses occupied by policemen where
the names had not been enumerated and
one policeman living in a house where the
family had been enumerated. Apparently
the policemen, or their families, were more
easily found by the enumerators than the
other city employes.
W ILL, INCREASE PRICE OF BROOMS.
Broom Corn Crop Short anil None
Plnnteil In Sooth,
The Mattoon, 111., Journal, one of the
papers devoted to broom corn raising in
the West, publishes interviews with sev
eral of the largest broom corn farmers,
and every condition goes to show that
broom corn instead of being lower this
fall will undoubtedly go much higher in
"The reasons are manifold,” says the
Journal,” "foremost, there will be an act
ual decrease in acreage over last year’s
crop, which you know was insufficient to
meet the demand. This shortage in acre
age is due to the fact that farmers were
frightened out of planting. The newspa
pers all over the West have been shouting
all winter about a flood and over-acreage
of broom corn this season, and this,
coupled with the fact that traveling men
are advising farmers that broom corn
wouldn’t be worth ten dollars per ton
this fall, has ail had its effect. The regu
lar broom corn farmers, not desiring to
enter into the business on such an un
profitable scale, have either cut their
acreage In half or not planted at all.
"Reports from Kansas, and in fact the
entire West, report a greatly reduced
acreage. The biggest standard county in
broom corn raising (McPherson) shows a
decrease of 25 per cent. It looks very much
as If broom corn will be higher, and con
sequently brooms will increase accord
An effort has been made for the past
several years to Induce Southern farm
ers to grow broom corn, but without suc
cess. Any soil that will grow ordinary
corn or cotton will produce a good yield
of broom corn, which, at the present
price, is a better paying crop than cotton.

A POPULAR MISTAKE.
Regarding Remedies for Dyspepsia
Tht national disease of Americans is in
digestion or in its chronic form, dyspep
sia, and for the very reason that it is so
common many people neglect taking prop
er treatment for what they consider tri
fling stomach trouble, when as a matter of
iact, indigestion lays the foundation for
many incurable diseases. No person with
a vigorous, healthy stomach will fall a
victim to consumption. Many kidney dis
eases and heart troubles date their begin
ning from poor digestion; thin, nervous
people are really so because their stom
achs are out of gear; weary, languid,
faded out women owe their condition to
When nearly every person you meet is
afflicted with weak digestion it is not
surprising l that nearly every secret patent
medicine on the market claims to be a
cure for dyspepsia, as well as a score of
oth r troubles, when in fact, as Dr.
A\ erthier says, there is but one genuine
dyspepsia cure which is perfectly safe
and reliable, and moreover, this remedy is
not a patent mt dicine. but it Ms a scien
tific combination of pure pepsin (free
from animal matter), vegetable essences,
fiuit salts and bismuth. It is sold by
druggists und r the name of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets. No extravagant
claims are made for them, but for indi
gestion or any stomach trouble. Stuart’s
Dyspepsia Tablets are far ahead of any
remedy yet discovered. They act on the
f od eaten, no dieting is necessary, simp
ly at all the wholesome food you want
and ihese tablets will digest it. A cure
resulis, because all the stomach needs is
a rest, which Stuart’s Dyspepsia Tablets
give by doing the work of digestion.

Interesting Entertainment of Songs,
HecltatlonN mid Sketches.
An interesting and artistic musical and
dramatic recital was given at the Lawton
Memorial last night by Mrs. E. E. Rollins
and Miss Margaret May Nicholson, as
sisted by Messrs. A. B. Green. J. Nor
ton Oemler, C. D. McCardel and Walter
Cler and Prof. Wiegand.
The entertainment began with a very
clever sketch, “My Uncle’s Will,” by 9.
There Smith, in which Mrs. Rollins, Mr.
Green and Mr. Oemler took part. The
plot of the sketch is well conceived and
the lines are witty. The players entered
most heartily into its spirit and acquit
ted themselves admirably.
Mr. C. D. McCardel sang the "Song of
the Forge’’ from Rol ln Hcod, and later
on the programme, "I’m King O’er Land
and Sea.” Hivachieved his usual success
anrl was warmly applauded, but refused
to respond io the encore.
"Sacred Is the Weeping,” Canto di
Leila, • Von Suppe, sung by Miss Nichol
son with violin obligato,by Prof. Wiegand,
was another number that scored a de
cided hit. Miss Nicholson has an excel
lent voice, of great range and power, and
her numbers were sung with a taste and
finish that drew forth the most generous
applause. Her other songs were, "Adieu,
Marie,” Adams; “Sweetheart, Sigh No
More,” Lynes, and the "Lullaby” from
Jocelyn, Godard. To the last named there
was also a violin obligato by Prof. Wie
gand. Mrs. Rollins recited “How Ruby
Played.” by request, and also gave the
court scene from "Henry VIIL” The two
selections are the opposite poles of dra
matic literature, but Mrs. Rollins display
ed her versatility, and artistic perception
and ability by making a hit in each.
Prof. Wiegand played a violin solo, se
lected and to an encore gave the Inter
mezzo from "Cavalleria Rusticana.”
Mr. Green recited admirably the well
known but ever popular “Dream of Eu
The vocal numbers were accompanied
on the piano by Mr. Cler.

The southern conference of the Ep

July 25 to 29 inclusive. This conference
is the result of a decision reached at
the last International Conference held
last year at Indianapolis that the Inter
national Conference could be Improved
both in the way of securing greater at

and if it were not necessary for some of
the attendants to come from such great
distances. Hence it was deckled that the
international feature be abandoned and
that Canada, and tho northern and

GUILTY ON ROTH COUNTS.
Dnn Williams Entered Plena to In
dictments for Forgery.
Dan Williams entered pleas of guilty
to two indictments, charging him with
forgery, in the Superior Court yesterday,
accompanying his acknowledgment of guilt
with an appeal to the mercy of the court.
Judge Falligant imposed a sentence of a
fine of SIOO and costs or a term of six
months on the chalngang In each case.
Dan is the former messenger in the
county Court House, who assisted Phoe
nix Williams in forging the name of Jan
itor Bartley Donovan to orders for their
salaries, which they negotiated with money
lenders in the city. Dan’s peculations
were of small amounts and Judge Falli
gant doubtless felt that his fall was due
to lire influence of Phoenix, who is Ihe
more skilful and accomplished rogue. He
has proved it by evading the officers of
the law- and remaining at liberty.
The financial operations of Pho"nlx
Williams were on a more extensive scale.
Not only- had he beaten the money lend
ers right and left, but he wound up his
criminal career here by forging the name
of Capt. John R. Dillon os on a
note. This he negioliated and got the
money, but the bank officials detected the
forgery a* sufficient length of time before
Williams' departure to make him return
The Twentieth t'entnry Policy*
The greatest accident policy written to
day is that of the Aetna Life Insurance
Company, and is rightly called the
Twentieth Century Combination Accident
Policy. It pays double benefits under a
wider range of every-day assets than any
other Accident Company. Double benefits
paid for all accidents caused by railroads,
street cars, bicycles, burning building,
elevators and steamboats. Weekly Indem
nity is payable every two months, during
disability until payments equal the full
principal sum Insured.
In addition to this the Aetna pays In
demnity for total or partial disability.
Especial provision Is made for many
things not usually covered by accident
policies, such as sunstroke, freezing, as
saults, asphyxiation, injuries without ex
ternal marks, etc., etc.
The Aetna puts this new policy forward
as the most liberal ever offered the pub
lic. The Aetna Is a Mg company with as
sets of over $52,000,000, and pays all losses
promptly and without contest. Mr. G. 8.
