POSSE KILLS THREE BANDITS
Attribute Three Oklahoma Bank Rob-
beries to Trio of Men
Okmulgae, Okla., Jan. 19.- Three
bandits, Oscar Poe, Will Hart, and
Harry Hart, were killed by a posse
headed by Sheriff C. F. Roach in a
fight 18 miles west of here today. Chief
of Police Bowman of pktnulgae, a
member of the posse, was wounded in
the hand during the battle.
Sheriff Roach and deputies left here
at midnight for the hiding place of
the three men. The bandits were sur-
rounded in a secluded spot and be-
fore they realized their danger the
fight was on. A fusilade of shots from
both sides followed and the three fug-
itives were killed. The dead men are
believed to be partners of Russell
Tucker, who was killed, and Jeff Lit-
trell, wounded and captured in yes-
terday's battle in Okjuskee county.
The gang is. accused of the Nowata,
Ninipa and Harrah bank robberies.
WA R IOVES
Petrograd, Jan. 19. - Roumanian
forces surrounded a height occupied
by German troops southwest of Pralea,
Roumania, and took "a great number"
of prisoners and four machine guns,
according to the war office statement
today. Defeat of the German forces
on both wings and evacuation by the
Teutons of Braila, Roumania, was an-
Berlin, Jan. 19.-Russian forces, ten
times as strong as German defenders,
entered an outpost north of Krasshin
but were later ejected, today's official
statement said, describing the fighting
in the Riga theater of war. The war
office said clear weather had resulted
in an increase of artillery firing in va-
rious sectors. "A surprising advance"
between Sufita and Putna valleys made
by the German forces resulted in the
taking of a hostile position and the
capture of 230 prisoners, and one ma-
chine gun, the statement declared.
Kaiser Mustache Club Organized
Barberton, O., Jan. 19.-It seems
both fitting and just that the first
"Kaiser's Mustache club" in the
United States should be formed here
in Barberton. To which the barber of7
Barberton agrees. Teti Barberton men
organized it, and the only qualification+
for membership is a mustache a la
Wilhelm. The club is, one might say,
a growing institution.
CANAA TO FIGHT TILL
ABIDING PEACE GERTAIN
SO SAYS DUKE OF DEVONSHIRE IN
SPEECH AT CONVENING OF
Ottawa, Can., Jan. 19.-Canada's de-
termination to continue the war until
crowned with an abiding peace was
expressed by the Duke of Devonshire,
governor-general of the dominion, in
his speech before the convening parlia-
"In common with the rest of the
empire," the governor-general de-
clared, "the people of this dominion
are firmly resolved that this war,
which has entailed so much sacrifice,
shall be continued and the forces
strengthened until they are crowned
with an abiding peace. When peace
is again happily restored I am con-
fident that the vast resources of the
dominion will continue to be devel-
oped for the lasting benefit of the em-
pire and in the best interest of liberty
and humanity. Although nearly two
and one-half years have elapsed since
the outbreak of the war, yet that period
has not been more than sufficient for
the enormous preparations necessary
to enable our empire to throw its full
strength into the struggle. The events
that have transpired since the war be-
gan give testimony of the efficiency of
the measures thus taken and bear
splendid tribute to the valor and hero-
ism of his majesty's forces in every
theater of war." r
In relation to the war the governor-
general said: "With preparations al-
ready so ample and still increasing
we may confidently anticipate that the
not distant future will bring such suc-
cess to the allied forces as will as-
sure the full maintenance of the pur-
pose and ideals for which we have en-
gaged in this war." The governor-
general declared the Canadian forces
dispatched overseas during 1916 num-
bered more than 165,000 and the ag-
gregate of enlistment in Canada since
the outbreak of the war is nearly 400-
WILSON ADOPTS T. R.s TACTICS
President to See Congressmen En
Masse Rather Than Individually
Washington, Jan. 19.-The Roose-
veltian practice of seeing a maximum
number of congressmen in a minimum
space of time, has been adopted by
President Wilson. Members of con-
gress aren't very keen about the ney
Instead of going in individually and
spending from five minutes to half an
hour with the president alone, repre-
sentatives and senators now go into
the president's office in a group of
from three to 20. Roosevelt adopted
this practice when he was president.
The president passes from one to
the other disposing of all of them in
jig time, as compared with the old
system. In addition the president sees
his callers now in the afternoon, mak-
ing it even more difficult for congress-
men to get in, for they have to leave
the floor of the capitol in order to
confer with the executive.
But the president is behind in his
work and he has to clear up the cal-
lers quickly in order to get to the
stack of government papers piled high
on his desk.

stitute, is made from linseed oil and

ANNUAL DEBATE CONTESTS

enues front the inheritance tax had
"oward '1'. Hill, the last speaker for
Chicago, presented the affirmative plan
for the proposed tax reforms, which
included the levying of a tax varying
from 10 to 25 per cent on both col-
lateral and direct heirs, whereas the
states were confining their inheritance
taxation solely to the collateral heirs.
Hill also contended that the difference
in the rates of the inheritance taxation
among the various states often re-
sulted in the loss of much revenue be-
cause of its easy evasion.
W. T. Adams, '17, closed the debate
for Michigan's negative trio. Adams
reiterated the negative arguments that
the federal taxation of inheritances
was unnecessary and that this should
be delegated solely to the states. The
issue here became a clear-cut and de-
cisive one and clearly shifted to the
question of the relative need of the
states and tho federal government, the
negative attempting to prove their case
by the submission of 30 letters from as
many states, all of which were unani-
mous in their condemnation of the fed-
eral legislation, declaring that it would
mean the abolishment of the state in-
The rebuttal work was as spirited
as the constructive arguments. All
the speeches centered about the main
issue as to whether or not the levying
of such a tax by the federal govern-
ment would be harmful and injurious
to the states that were using it as a
means of raising state funds, or wheth-
er the tax levied by the federal gov-
ernment would not only mean in-
creased revenue to the federal govern-
ment but also would not conflict with
the state tax, Michigan contending the
former and Chicago the latter.
