ENTERS EMPHATIC DENIAL
HERALD WOULD MAKE HIM MAY
The Herald In its Sunday edition
Bays that if WPl Sims, suspended
chief of police of Shawnee, were to
run for mayor since the charges have
been filed against him, (hat he could
be elected mayor or anything else.
It fails to state whether or not this
reward should come as a result of
his conducting his present office In
such a manner as to leave room for
charges to be filed, no matter by
whom or whether because he has sim-
ply qualified for mayor by becoming
suspended from the position of chief
of police. It is an Insult to the peo.
pie of Shawnee to have a paper tell
the world that an officer in court on
charges of malfeasance In office could
be elected mayor or anything else.
We would advise the Herald to get
a new dope book. Sims must clean
his tracks first

This was the decision rendered by
Judge Hosea Townsend at Ardmore
in the fraudulent lease cases.
The government had filed suit for

was alleged had secured leases by
fraud. The defendants demurred 011

could not sue because the Indian was

case was heard before Judge Town,

was a citizen of the United States he

sufficient extent that the govenment
could sue on his behalf.

Rock the Baby With Gas.
Collinsville, I T„ July 15.—"Indian
Territory farmers as a class are the
most successful growers of practically
everything that Is produced from the
soli, and are enjoying the fullest
measures of progress and prosperity."
says John H. Middleton, an old resi-
dent of this city. In discussing the
farmer in this locality and the advan-
tages they enjoy over those of other
sections of the wonderful new coun-
try, Mr. Middleton said:
"Both white and red men, within
a radius of ten miles of this city, are
rolling In luxury. If the term might
be applied to farm life. Their homes
are not palaces, but are comfortable
their live stock is well housed, and
they provide every necessity of life
for both man and beast.
"Practically every farmer in this
country heat and light their homes
and barns with natural gas, and many
pump water, grind feed, do churning
and even rock the baby to sleep by
the use of natural gas. Housewives
jdo the washing and ironing with gas
which is cheaper than kindling wood
If furnished free of cost. In short,
farmers in this locality are not only
prosperous and happy, but enjoy the
comforts of city life.
"When I speak of the prosperity
progress and luxury so amply enjoyed
by the farmers in this section, I mean
the honest tillers of the soil who
make agriculture their life study, who

That It would take two or three]
