LELA BROWN Santa Claus will not forget the lit tie' folk at the Orphans Homo this Christinas. Lest he might forget them, th<3 homeless children are busy writing him letters suggesting the gifts they hope he will leave with them on the night he makes his mou- drous rounds. Once having reaU those letters, scribbled and with many mls^pelied words, he will not pass them by unanswered. During the past week the management of the home has found the)children sitting' in remote corners spelling out the messages to St. Nicholas. The matron of the home has collected the letters and has offered them to the press for publication. Thfe good people of lola, after reading the appeals of the children, will see to it tha^ they are not forgotten on Christmas night. In this connection it might be mentioned that the post office department lias changed its atUtude with reference to letters directed to Santa Claus and Instead of refusing the messages will see to it that charitably inclined people and benevolent institutions, who will play the role of Santa Claus. get those letters. An order to this effect has heen sent out by the de partment. The following is the order: "Ordered that hereifter and until the close of the first day of January. 1908, postmasters are directed to deliver all. letters arriving at their rea- pective offices addressed plainly and unmistakably to 'Santa Claus' without any other terms or expressions identifying the person for whom such letters are intended to any regularly organized charitable society in the city or town addresses, to be used exclusively for diaritable jiurposes. In the event that claim shotld b« made by more than one such society- for letters eo addressed, anch lietters will be eqaally ^Uvlded according to number, between the societies making such claiin." However, the letters written by the children of the home, will not be sent through the mails, but published in the local press and the lola public, their Santa Claus. will receive them. Those of the citiiens who will be the Santa C!aus to these children are re- nuested to leave their donations at Shields' shoe store. The excuse that one does not know what to get for the children will not be acceptable in this instance as the wants of the children are printed below. The following are some of the letters written by the cbiliren: lola, Kas.. Dec. 15, 1907.

Okla., Dec 17.—Chairman Hunter of the republican state committee, who returned today from Wash Ington where he, with other Oklahoma republicans, conferred with President Roosevelt, is of the opinion that Oklahoma will send a Roosevelt delegation to the national convention even in the face of President Roosevelt's declaration that he will not be a candidate for the nomination. •I believe," said Mr. Hunter, "tha't if tl^ rank and file of the republican party demand Roosevelt's nomination that he will accept under pressure, but he certainly would not take the nomination if urged principally by the rough riders and federal office holders of the country." Chairman Ilunter declares that the statements sent out that' Secretary Cortelyou is an anti-administration candidate for president are untrue, and that Cortelyou would be supimrt- ed by Roosevelt if Taft were out of the race. The republican chairman will call a meeting of the state committee within two or throe weeks, outline the preliminaries of choosing the delegates to the national republican convention. There is a question under the present Oklahoma mandatory iirimary law whether delegates to the national convention can be selected in conventions, or whether the primary system will have to be observed.

Topeka, Dec 17.—Ci W, Bums, State Superintendent of Insurance, yesterday evening revoked the licenses to do business in Kansas of the Commonwealth Fire Insurance company of Texas and the German Fire Insurance company of.Indiana. The licenses were revoked at the recommendation of Attorney General Jackson because of the action of the com. panies In continuing to file "dilatory motions in the anti-trust suits pending against the insurance companies In the district court of Shawnee county. All of the other Insurance com- tianles made defendants in these suits which are based on allegations of violations of the antiTtntst laws by iise of the premium rates established by the Eldridge rating bureau at Topeka. have filed fheir answers. The two companies, whose licenses to do business in Kansas are revoked have shown a disposition to unnecessarily delay trial of the suits on the merits of the controversy. Attorney General Jackson yesterday evening filed replies to the answers of the fire insurance companies that have made answers. The replies consist of a general denial of the allegations of the insurance companies that they have not violated the law. A special reply is made to the contention of the insurance companies that the courts have once declared that use of the rates establbhed by th? Topeka bureau is not in vtolation of the anti-tnist laws and that the question is therefore "res adjudicata." It \K the contention of the attorney general that a question is never settled until it is .settled right and his special reply sets practically as a demiir- rer to this portion of the answer filed by the defendant insurance companies. , DEFENDS ROOSEVELT Senator Tillman' SUnds Tp for the President .Coldfield.

He has promised to prepare a comprehensive statement of the Western Federation's side of the controversy to be presented later. Thirty strike breakers were brought into Goldfle'd today and tomorrow will go to work in the mines.
