"WITH MALICE TOWARD NONE, WITH CHARITY FOR ALL, WITH FIRMNESS IN THE RIGHT."
PAULS VALLEY, IND. TER., THURSDAY, MAY 19, 1904.
NEW JUDGE SWORN IN.
Took Oath of Office Before
Judge W. H. H. Clayton.
PLEASED WITH PROSPEGTS.
Newly Appointed Judge for Southern District
Now in Territory.
Judge J. T. Dickerson, of Marion,
Kan., the newly appointed judge for
the Southern district of Indian Terri-
tory, is now in the Territory and has
been sworn in. The places and dates
of the new court terms will soon be
decided and it is expected by these
decisions that Pauls Valley will get
three court terms a year instead of two,
and that the next term will soon be
Judge Dickerson was born in Ohio,
in the early sixties, but when quite a
young man he moved to the west,
where he won fame in the practice of
law and in politics. For some years
he has been the federal judge for the
eighth judicial district of Kansas.
His trip to the Territory at present
is for the purpose of looking over the
work which will fall to him, and he
expresses himself as highly pleased
with the prospect, the position to
which he has just been appointed com-
ing to him unsolicited.
In this connection there is quite an
interesting story, as it is seldom that
an appointment of so much importance
is given to any but those who solicit
it, and work hard to obtain the honor.
Judge Dickerson, however, had never
given a thought to the judgeship of
the Southern district until twenty-four
hours before he received word that the
President had named him.
Judge Dickerson is recognized as
one of the most capable lawyers and
pleasing gentlemen in Kansas, in fact
his personality is so strikingly pleasant
that every acquaintance soon becomes
his friend; and it is in recognition of
this that the President honored him as
MUST PAY UP.

Well so Hotgun and Tookpafka Micco
they was talked politics and Wolf Warrior
and Kono Harjo they was paid close attent-
ion and grunt.
"Well so," Hotgun he say, "they was
lots of good political timber decaying 'cause
we dident had statehood, and maby so some
of it was rotten enough to make foxfire and
lead Bony Parts a long chase for nothing."
"But maybe so," Hotgun he go on and
I say, "we could not afford to let the timber
j go to waste, 'cause they was plenty more

| proved variety that was shipped down here
from the states on fiftj years trial."
And Tookpakfa Micco he say. "Weil so

ple any how and was stirred up the most
And Hotgun he say, "Well, so I think
they was the most prominent among them-
selves and the people did not had anything
to do with it and was innocent. It was like
this way: These politicans was got together
like wolves when they was get hungry and
want to forage—and the wolf in front was
Plenty So Far. He was sit round on the
knools a Cooweescoowee prairie looking for
signs until he was had big calluses on his
see a big pack behind so hungry they
could'nt hardly stay together."
Then Hotgun go and say "Well, >'So it
was the same way amoung the Democrats
too and it was about a stand off. They
was two, these down in the Choct- and
Chickasaw nations howling with their pack.
But I think maybe old Hailey was prowling
around in the hills close to South McAlester
with the biggest pack while Bob Willing
was sneaking around on the Blue with a
few coyoates and Mayor 'Dick sent up a
lonesome howl down at Ardmore. So these
was the democrat wolves, but the trouble
with them is they was too hungry to stay to-
gether and much disturbance among the
sheep. The Republican wolves were better
organized and had better hunting grounds."
Then Tookpafka Micco he ask Hotgun.
"Well, so who all want to be large delegate
and little delegate to big convention in the
states to nominate a new president ?
And Hotgun he say, "Well so the re-
publicans was already picked out Plenty So
Far from the Seminole nation and Cherokee
nation and Quapaw agency to lead the dele-
gates from the rest of the Territory. He
was had Choctaw Injun in the bunch that
was not old enough to vote and was had a

Plenty So Far he was sit down on top of a democrats who had large aspirants to be
knoll and look way off and howl ever so large delegate and little delegates to trot

him way down on Kendal heights and howl
back and pretty soon he comes with lots a

be so the constable way down about Eufau-

minent ones was Cliff Jack's son and Jem's

In 1910 Oklahoma and Indan Ter-
! ritories will without a doubt be one
! state, and that portion of the state of
Oklahoma now comprising Indian Ter-
ritory will outvote us two to one.
Guthrie, nor any other town within the
| present limits of Oklahoma, can hope
to secure the permanent capital. It
will be lost to us forever. Not only
the capital but every state institution
can and will be voted in by the Dawes
commission push. Guthrie can hoot
at this and will, no doubt, but the
votes will be in evidence and a major-
ity of them will be against us, and the
blame will be laid at the door of Guth-
rie, where it belongs. It appears that
everybody looks upon Guthrie's scheme
as a penny-wise-pound-foolish affair
save and except Guthrie.—Kingfisher

ii to the Effect that Chances will Shortly be
Filed Against Other Official*.
It begins to look as though Ben
Colbert, Marshal of the Southern dis-
trict, will serve out his entire term
without molestation by the Department
officials and the President. The
special agent who conducted the last
investigation has reported to the De-
partment that the charges are unfound-
ed. This is generally looked upon as
ending the fight against him. His
opponents have been determined in
their efforts to secure his removal and
the President has been on the verge
on two occasions of removing him.
Had it not been for the personal rela-
tionship existing between President
Roosevelt and Mr. Colbert the latter
would undoubtedly have been without
an official position before this.
There is a rumor current at the De-
partment of Justice that charges will
shortly be filed against other officials
of the Territory. It is admitted that
this matter has been discussed at the
Department by people from the Terri-
tory visiting Washington, but it is de-
nied that any written charges have been
filed. As to who the parties are to be
investigated no information can be ob-
tained, and the probabilities are that
the rumor consists largely of "hot air."
PROSPEROUS LITTLE TOWN.
The writer visited the little town
of Maysville a few days ago and found
the merchants busy and enjoying a
good trade. Among those we might
mention are: Dykes & Mays, general
merchandise; Tucker & Odom, furni-
ture; Ham & Dickson, general merch-
andise; Cook & Sons, drugs; Patterson
& Sample, drugs; Unci; John Mays,
general merchandise; Vaughn Bros.,
groceries; Houston Bros., lumber; W.
H. Hobbs, groceries; W. L. Lyres,
While there we also had the pleas-
ure of meeting Prof, H. D. Rives, who
is conducting a very successful school
in Maysville, A. P. Cash, a prosperous
farmer, and many others that space
