orators will speak in their native

is considered a high honor, as a
white man is rarely wanted at their

placed before the people of Shawnee.

upon the invitation of the local Les-
lie P. Rosf club and the argument
which he put forward for the nomi-
nation of Col. Ross were convincirg
and will undoubtedly add strength
to hit campaign.

of any 6f the candidates for the nom-
ination. His speech was free from
personalities and the fact that the
claims of each candidates were
touched upon in a manner which
showed only the kindliest feeling,
caused his remarks to be listened

Not being a candidate for any
public office, Mr. Rutherford ex-
plained that he felt free to discuss
the issues of the campaign as a.i
individual might, without prejudice.
"The leading issues of Col Ross's
campaign are," he said, "the curtail-
ment of the powers of the chief
executive and the local option and
high license question. It is upon
these issues that Col. Ross has con-
ducted his campaign which had not
been looked upon seriously until re-
cently when sentiment favoring the
resubmission of the liquor question
gained remarkable headway through-
out the state."
To those critics of Col. Ross who
have claimed that prohibition could
not be made an issue in the cam-
paign. Mr. Rutherford called atten-
tion to the fact that the growth. of
Koss sentiment throughout the state
proves conclusively that it is an is-

INDIANS MAY BUILD TOWNS.
Clinton Okla.. July 15.—A big
meeting of the Indians at Big Jake's
Crossing has been held by the chiefs
for the purpose of considering the
building of several Indian towns, in
which no one may live but Indians
and where they will have their own
stores, councilmen, carpenters, doc-
tors, lawyers and conduct businesi
Just tho same as the while man.
The Idea of building Indian towns
met with the approbation of tha
chiefs. If carried out it would
have a tendency to stop ttie Indians
from their roving habits and maks
better citizens of them.
At the present, time few of the
red man raise chickens, for example,
as they leave home with their fam!-
lies for months at a time, and no
one would be left to tend to them.
Townsites could ealsly be procured,
as the Indians already own the nec-
essary land, and farms adjoining the
townsite could be cut into smali
farms for their benefit.
A trial of this kind would prove
a novelty and the educated Indians
believe they could run it successfully
if given the opportunity. '
