At least eight persons were killed and scores of others injured in tho several tornadoes in Northwestern Oklahoma yesterday evening. Thero was a succession of tornadoes between 5 o'clock and 10 o'clock P. M. They appeared first in -tho western part of tho devastated district and moved toward the east. The most serious re sults were in the vicinity of Arnett, where fully 30 persons aro fceliovod to havo broken limbs. Nearly all of thcso victims are residents of the farming dis tricts. The only town known to have 1een destroyed is Vici, a postoffice town in tho southern part of Woodward crfunty, where it is said there is not a house left standing. Postmaster E. A. Speck has asked that a postoffice inspector report on his office, which was demolished and the contents scattered in all directions. Tho report of four deaths at Arnott includes tho two at Little Robe, and is confirmed by the news that four caskets have been sent overland from Gage to Arnett, Gage being the nearest railroad point.

GATHER AT WHITE HOUSE. Governors Confer With 'President on Conservation of Resources. Washington, May 11. History will bo mado at this week's White Houso iconfcrcnco on natural resources. For I history-making conditions are remark ably favorable. Never before has a President of the United States con- finds that for the handling of perishable commodities tho express companies have established or der and commission departments. The agents of the companies undertake to find a market for producers and to han dle the products offered. The products are marketed and the proceeds, less the express charges, are turned over to the producers. The commission reports thnt express companies do not buy or sell commodi ties transported by them to their own account. Agents of the companies who have done so have been prohibited from continuing it by the companies. Accordingly it recommends that all express companies and their agents be prohibited from buying or selling on i thoir own account commodities trans- ! state business through order and com mission departments, subject to the pro hibitions of law against unjust discrimi nation. O. R. &. N. TO FIGHT. Amend Naturalization Act. Washington, Mny 12, A bill amend ing the naturalization act was ordered favorably reported today by tho house committee on immigration. The bill increases tho fee which clerks of courts may charge for the issuing of naturali zation papers from $5 to $8, nnd allows either the applicant for admission to citizenship or tho United States to take an appeal within 00 days from the date of tho entry of tho final order, on ques tions of law only, to tho United Stntos Circuit Court of Appeals ferred with all tho governors of the states. Never before has tho White p0rtcd by express, but that express corn House, with its long record of social panies be permitted to continue their land stato functions sheltered a large present methods or conaticung mier convention called for tho consideration of a great public Issue. And never be fore hns tho wholo broad question of I tho conservation of this country's nat ural resources been brought before a great deliberate body as the solo sub ject of its consideration. The reception accorded to this project indicates that the people of the country expect definite results of a farreaching character. After hearing from experts tho conditions the country is facing, the members of the conference will them solves decido whether anything ought to bo done, and what. Some have sug gested tho advisability of forming a great national organization to carry forward tho plans originated in the conference. Tho probability ns that, at tho least, some basis will bo laid for future co-operation between the fed eral and stnte governments in a vigor ous policy of conservation, for one of tho things which will bo shown most forcibly nt tho conference is that neither the states nor the federal gov ernment enn make satisfactory headway independently.
