"WITH MALICE TOWARD NONE, WITH CHARITY FOR ALL, WITH FIRMNESS IN THE RIGHT."
PAULS VALLEY, IND. TER., THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 1904.
NEW PROPOSITION MADE
To the Commercial Club of Pauls
SURVEY IS NOW COMPLETED
And With the Proper Eucouragement Work
Wii! Commence Soon.
Capt. McWillie, chief engineer, and
Geo. Teague, secretary, of the Oklaho-
ma City-Sulphur Electric Line Co.,
were in the city Tuesday morning
on their way overland from Lexington
to Sulphur. They are also stopping in
each town through which the present
survey runs, making a final proposition
to the business men.
From Sulphur, Capt. McWillie goes
to Tishomingo to file the map of sur-
vey with Governor Moseley, a dupli-
cate map having already been sent to
Muskogee and from there will be for-
warded to Washington for approval.
The proposition made to Pauls Val-
ley, which we understand is the final
proposition, is for 85,000 and practi
cally ten miles of right-of-way, with
terminal facilities. The same amount
will be asked of Wynnewood, Lexing-
ton having already guaranteed $6,000
and eleven miles of right-of-way.
The proposition submitted by these
gentlemen is, in the opinion of the
writer, a good one, and in conversa-
tion with Captain McWillie we learn
that if the proper encouragement is
shown by Pauls Valley and other towns,
work will commence on this line inside
of sixty days.
He further says that the line can be
completed in one year, or a year and
one-half at the farthest. The estimate
of the total cost is from two to three
This is an opportunity that Pauls
Valley can hardly afford to pass up.
Capital Stock 50.000
Surplus and Profits, 73.000
The First National Bank of Pauls Valley solicits
accounts large and small and with its Capital stock
of $50,000, and surplus funds of $73,000, offers
to the public every facility consistent with safe and
prudent banking g§5)
be no trouble in having the restrictions
Maysville is situated a few miles
from Pauls Valley in a fine farming
district and will now, no doubt, make a
good country town.
RESTRICTIONS TO BEREMOVEI?.
A. P. Cash and F. C. Cook of Mays-
ville were in the city Saturday on their
way home from Muskogee where they
had been before Chairman Needles of
the Dawes Commission as witnesses.
The land upon which the town of
Maysville is located has been alloted
by Mrs. Sam Williams and as the re-
strictions must be removed before the
lots can be sold these gentlemen were
before Col. Needles for that purpose.
Mr. Cash says that the only questions
asked were in regard to Mrs. Williams
intelligence, the population of the
town, and whether or not a permanent
depot had been located. After these
questions had been answered satisfact-
orily it was explained that there would
A large crowd of Indian voters from
Pauls Valley and surronding country
left Tuesday for Oakland to vote for
their favorite candidates for officers
of the Indian government. Among
those noted by the scribe were Roy

Paul, E. M. Moore, Imon McClure,
U. S. Allender, S. J. Garvin, Joe
Myers, T. I. Hamm, J. M. Dorchester,

Among these gentlemen Joe Myers,
a candidate for senator on the nation-
al ticket, and W. H. Paul, Buck Paul
and Roy Burks, were candidates res-
pectively for representative, judge, and
clerk on the progressive ticket.
A SPECIAL TRAIN.
A special train t^ame through from
Chickasha late Tuesday evening bear-
ing the banner, "D. H. Johnsor and
the National party's train." A large
crowd was aboard when the train reach-
ed here and many were waiting down
the line at Wynnewood, Davis, Ber-
wyn, Ardmore and other towns. The
train was bound for Oakland, to the
voting place of this county for the
election held yesterday.
Among those who boarded this
train were: Dr. T. C. Branumn, R. L
Nichols, Wm. Hull, S. R. Olinhant,
S. J. Garvin, J. M. Dorchester
Jno. Hiil, Milas Lasater, J. O. Connor,
W. G. Kimberlin, Ernest Kimberlin,
Will Clayton and A. B. Dennis.
They returned late yesterday after-
J. E. Jeter of Oakland, Cal., is in
the city visiting his parents. Mrs.
Blair a sister of Mr. Jeter, will arrive
in a few days from Chillicothe, Mo.,
for an extended visit.
A ten dollar bill was received by Mr.
Rice of the Globe Hotel this week,
which upon presentation to the Bank
of Commerce, was declared to be a
The bill was given to Mr. Rice by a
strange woman in payment of a board
bill, and after finding the bill to be a
counterfeit he promptly had the woman
arrested. She acknowledged to having
passed the bill but claimed to have
received it from Tom Cox, a young
man who resides in this city.
In an effort to locate Cox it was
found that he had skipped out but was
finally located by Deputy Webb and
W. C. Jones in the loft of a friend's
house near Whitebead.
His case is being tried before Com-
missioner Pfeiffer and unless he can
explain how he came in possession of
the counterfeit he will in all probability
be bound over.
Cox's father who has been released
on bond, having been arrested some
time ago on the charge of counterfeit-
ing $5 gold pieces, was given up by
his bondsmen yesterday and is again
A SMALL BLAZE.
The fire alarm was turned in Satur-
day evening, which proved to be a
small office building on the cotton
yard in the extreme north part of town.
The building was very small and had
gained such headway, it burned down
before the fire boys reached it. The
fire was of incendiary origin.

Internal Revenue Officers Make
OVER 100 CASKS CAPTURED

other Pale Drinks

With a swoop like that of the de-
stroying angel, revenue officers have
for a time at least paralyzed the soft
drink business in this city.
Internal revenue Agent W. S. Irwin
of Muskogee assisted by Chas Howard
of Oklahoma city, and two revenue
agents have been in the city for the
past two days and as a result of their
work which has been done in an un-
usually quiet manner, 89 casks of Vig-
orine, 13 casks Long Horn and 10
casks of El Fino, consigned to local
dealers here have been seized and stored
away by the United States government
and H. D. Hardie of Ardmore appoint-
ed as receiver and guardian.
These beverages are classed and
have been sold throughout Indian Ter-
ritory as soft drinks which while con-
taining a small per cent of alchol, were
supposed to come within the pale of
The violation however, and it is a
serious one is due to the fact that
the goods in question are not labeled
which is a wanton violation of the re
vised statutes 34*49, which requires
the goods to be labeled according to
the contents, and also the brewery
We are informed that the goods will
at once be advertised or rather that the
owner for the goods will be advertised
for, and at the expiration of stated time
will be sold.
This is the same class of drink that
Marshal Colbert ordered stopped some
two or three weeks ago, but it seems
to have taken a new lease of life.
The outcome of this ase will be
fully as interesting as the suit filed
against Marshal Colbert for destroying
a quantity of the same at his home in
