To Succeed James f. Ament at the
Alva Normal —Takes Charge
Guthrie, O. T., April 7.—T. \V.
Conway, principal of the Ster-
ling, Kansas, city schools was
today elected president of the
Northwestern Territorial Normal
school at Alva, succeeding James
E. Ament, on the tirst day of
July. This action was the final
decision of the board of educa-
tion in the Alva Normal matter,
after another day's session at
Edmond. The resolution passed
last Friday night, summarily re-
moving President Ament, was
not reconsidered, but by a vote
of the board it was determined
to allow President Ament and
faculty to remain in the institu-
te a chief deputy he will name
either Ned Sisson or C. B. Hunt
the choice lying between the two.
The policy of the office under his

session this morning with Gov.

laws and outlawry at all times.
When asked about this matter,
Mr. Fossett replied:

Plenty of Candidates.
Guthrie, O. T., April 7.—The
announcement that the resigna-
tion of John L. McAtee as judge
of the Fifth judioial district, had
boen forwarded to Washington
did not come as a surprise to peo-
ple of this portion of Oklahuma.
Since the charges filed against
Judge McAtee were received at
Washington and a special inspec-
tor sent here it was considered
very probable that Judge Mc-
Atee would resign. As a result
of this feeling many men who
have a desire to occupy a seat 011
the supreme bench have been se-
curing endorsements for Mc-
Atee's place. There is much
speculation over the probable
successor to Judge McAtee and
110 one here seems to have any
idea who it will be. The follow-
ing named men are candidates
for a. seat on the bench:
J. B. Cullison, Enid; J. K.
Beau camp, Enid; J. C. Roberts
Guthrie; F. E. Gillett, El Reno;
L. W. Keys, Hobart; Jno. Embry
Chandler; J. S. Strang, Guthrie;
J. L. Pancoast, Perry.
John Embry of Chandler has
been picked on winner by a num-
ber of prominent Republicans.
What chances he has are not
known yet some strong endorse-
ments for him have been sent in.
With the judiciary bill likely to
pass, three men in Oklahoma will
secure places on the supreme
bench. In the event Judge J.C.
Roberts,the new attorney gener-
al,should secure one of the places,
there would be a vacancy in this
office to be filled, which would
probably be filled from the list
of candidates for a seat on the
United States Marshal Bill
Fossett returned yesterday af-
ternoon from Washington, D. C.,
says the State Capital of tho 5th,
and was busy during the re-
mainder of the day receiving the
congratulations of his friends.
He states that so far as known
there will be few if any changes
in tlie staff of deputies, although
that is a matter which he has as
yfct not fully decided. In regard
Thompson told Fossett several
weeks ago that he was going to
resign the position of United
States marshal on the first day
of May, Fossett said—"Well if
you are in earnest and nothing
can prevent you from resigning
then make it a month earlier,
keep it quiet and I will go to
Washington and see what I can
do toward getting the place for
myself." To this Thompson
agreed at once and the result is
that Fossett has been appointed
That he will make an excellent
official, none doubt who know his
ability as an officer at all times
and under any circumstances.

Hobart, O. T., April Ti.—P.
Waldron, Jr., the assayer from
Wildman, was in the city last
week in the interest of the Lone
Jack Mining Co. He reports
things in a flourishing condition
in the mountains. His company
is slowly but surely getting
down in the ground, and in the
course of the next sixty days
they expect to have their ma-
chinery on the ground.
He had some tine specimens of
gold and copper ores from two
of their claims, which are with-
out doubt as fine as any Colora-
do or California ore.
Mr. Waldron says it is only a
question now as to how deep
down it lies. Indications point
to about 75 feet.
The Longendyke Band gave an
open air concert last Friday
night. Under the able tutorship
of Prof. Simpson the boys are
all advancing rapidly, and they
are now able to appear in public
011 any occasion without the fear
of discord. Prof. Simpson is
very proud of his pupils,for they
have been very faithful during
the long hours of schooling each
week. With all new instruments
of the highest grade, a company
of intelligent and progressive
young men, and a first-class tu-
tor, as their leader, Kingfisher
should certainly appreciate this
band. The boys will continue to
give weekly concerts on the
streets whenever tho weather
will permit.—Kingfisher Free
at the session. Ascertaining
that he could not, the members
of the board came here and met
him in his office. The interview
was right to the point and Gov.
Ferguson stated to the board
that he had been deceived in this
matter and that personalities
should not be allowed to enter
into the business of the normal
While President Ament might
be a disturbing factor, yet there
were others in the school just
guilty as President Anient and if
one faction is removed, the other
should go also.
The governor laid down two
propositions to the board in the
Alva matter. The first is that
the entire faculty bo allowed to
remain at Alva until the end of
the year. In order to do this the
resolution passed last night must
be considered. If it should be
the intention of the board to ac-
cept the first preposition, the
members of the fnculty must be
notified that any attempt on the
part of any member to create a
disturbance 111 the school would
bo sufficient for a dismissal, at
an adjourned meeting of the
board held one month from the
Governor Ferguson's second
proposition is that if it is the de-
cision of the board to remove
Ament, the other members of
the faculty must be removed al-
so, even if it is necessary to de-
lay the spring term a week or
more to get a new faculty there.
At the session in the governor's
office, a majority of the board
was in favor of accepting the
first proposition and allowing the
entire Alva faculty to remain un-
til the close of the school year.
The definite session was not
made, however, while hero and
was to be further discussed
when the board returned to Ed-
This condition is an entirely
newT one for the members of the
board to confront. Gov. Fergu-
son is of the opinion that there is
much spite work in this matter
and is trying to eliminate it all
as far as possible.
A settlement was made Mon-
day afternoon with the Oklahoma
Sanitarium company for the care
of the territorial insane for the
last quarter. Auditor L. W.
Baxter issued a warrant for $14,-

ment for their services for the
territory. The amount paid
them for the last quarter is $1,-

for the care of insane during the
