The board of county commissioners
met at a called session Tuesday and
accepted the resignation of C. A. Mc-
Brian and appointed W. O. Woolman,
of Qkeene, probate Judge. Mr. Wool-
man was reinforced by a large delega-
tion of Okeene citizens. His bond
was signed by J. 0. Fisher, W. C.
Hauser and two other Okeene gentle-
men and was accepted by the board.
Judge Woolman proceeded to business
The semi-annual apportionment of
the oommon school fund among the
various counties of the Territory has
been made, and the money is ready to
forward to the treasurers of each
county. The report shows that there
are 146,000 school children in Oklaho-
ma, exclusive of the three new coun-
ties, and of this number 3,455 belong
to Blaine county. The apportoinment
amounted to 93 cents per capita, mak-
ing Blaine county’s pro rata $3,213.15.
TO SEE THE PRESIDENT.
Black Coyote, our veteran Indian
chief, has been in communication with
the powers that be at Washington for
some time in regard to disposing of
the dead Indian land. He has received
some very favorable support in the
matter and will soon make a visit to
the capital and lay the matter before
the proper officials. The per cent of
land among the Cheyennes and Arap-
ahoes belonging to dead Indians is 69
per cent. There could be no law
passed that would be of more benefit
■jo Blaine county than one turning this
and over to cultivation.
LAND OFFICE REPORT.
The report of el Governor Richards,
assistant commissioner of the lane
office, to the secretary of the interior
regarding the opening to settlement
and entry of the Kiowa, Comanche
and Wichita land has just come from

pense to the government incident to
the surveying, subdividing and plat-
ting of the townsites was only $5,284.

Lawton, number sold, 1,422; receipts,
$414,845. Anadarko, number sold.
1,129; receipts, $188,455. Hobart,

he wont commence at this late day.
The dump on the Rock Island will

People far and near have learned
that Geary is the best town to trade in
in this part of the territory. You
could tell that by the large crowd in

The Salt creek bridge in 18-10 is now
completed and the county “dads” say
it will hold up a railroad train. The
same contractors will soon complete
three more bridges for Blaine county.
It is the American Bridge Co., of New
York, with offices at Kansas City.
In the census of 1900, Oklahoma was
given a population of 398,000 and the
Indian Territory one of 392,000. The
recent inrush of settlers into Okla-
homa has probably with the natural
increase aside from this, put Oklaho-
ma’s population up to 450,000 or oyer
at present. •

A movement has been started by
the ladies of Geary to make some im-
provements in the general appearance
of our cemetery. This is a good move
and should meet with the hearty sup-
port of all. Our cemetery at present
is in a very neglected and forlorn con-
dition. The weeds and grass have
been allowed to grow from year to
year, with the exception of a few lots
that have been mowed and cleaned off.
It would take but a small amount of
money to clean up the cemetery and
make it a place of beauty. After it is
once gotten into proper shape a few
trees could be planted and soon a per-
son would not have such a horror of
death, as they surely would now,think-
ing they would have to rest in such a
forlorn place. Let us all join in and
help the ladies in this matter.

We hope to see the day when there
will be a stringent law, and properly
enforced, against carrying revolvers.
There cannot be a more nefarious
practice than that of going around
with a six-shooter protruding from the
hip-pocket. Some think it denotes a
brave, bad man; but we never looked
at it in that light. When we see a
man with a gun, we put him down as a
coward in most cases. Lay aside your
artillery and adorn yourself with a
smile and a pleasant word for all and
you will never have occasion to even
bruise your lists, let alone shooting
