Woods is called a hog because
he undertook to make the very
best of his bargain, regardless of
the suposed right of one woman.
What sort of hogs, then, are those
men whose colossal fortunes have
been piled up as high as mountains
regardless of the rights and hap
piness of millions of men, women
and children? We denounce
Woods for attempting to get
possession of 80 acresof raw prairie
worth, at most only afew thousand
dollars, but are not in the least
appalled at the conduct of men
whose great wealth is acquired by
making it impossible for millions
of men, women and children to
get as much meat and bread as they
ought to have. Oh this hog busi-
ness is the same old song and dance
It is the little hogs and the little
thieves that the world is after.
The big hogs and the big thieves
run over us rough shod every day,
and instead resenting it, we lift
Will Soon he Subject to the
Eager Grab of the White Mail
According to an interview of
A. L. Aylesworth, secretary of
the Dawes commission, in a Kan-
sas City newspaper the other day,
it will be only a short time until
the Creek nation, 65 miles east of
Perry, will be subject to the
grab of the white homeseeker.
The eommssion is busy hear-
ing citizenship claims,” he said.
“Of the live tribes no agreement
as to the allotment of land has
yet been made with the Cherokees
and claimants to citizenship in
that tribe are consequently still
appearing before the commission.
The Choctaws and Chickisaws
have made a treaty with the II. S.
but have set no date for citizen-
The Creek nation is the only
one in which the opening of In-
dian lands is insured. The allot-
ment there is under way and it is
only a question of a short time
until citizens of the United States
can go in there and buy property.
“The work of the Dawes com-
mission is nothing more or less
than the settling of a vast estate.
There are about 80,000 bona tide
citizens of the five tribes, and each
is an heir to a share of the estate.
I may be pessimistic, but basing
my opinion on my experience
with the work, J believe the time
for throwing the Indian territory
wide open to white settlement,
the interior issues the deeds to
the properly the Indian owner
will lie permitted to sell the re-
maining 120 acres of his allot-
ment. How soon this will he is a
matter of conjecture, but it will
mark a new era for the Indian

A good newspaper is a public
benefactor, a friend of the right-
eous and an indicator of the town
and community in which it is pul*
lished. While it may not be the
brains of the community, very
often it is not, its columns repre-
sent, in all cases, the brains of
the business men in its advertising
columns. Every good anil re-
liable merchant contributes to it
weekly; he’s the man behind the
town, as it were. Pick out the
merchants who patronize the
newspapers and you’ll find they
are head and shoulders above t he
pikers who are not represented.
The advertiser is the man who
makes the town—and the news-
paper is his lieutenant. The
newspaper is a creator of busi-
ness, an encyclopedia of news and
knowledge and every man’s friend
who is a friend to the town and
community. Treat a newspaper
with the respect anil considert*-
tion accorded any other enter-
prise and you have made a friend
who will stand up for you tho’
others encourage your downfall. -
