You In Danger?
Individuals who go whispering around
saying one thing in one place and an
othe in an other, when a question that
touches the public comes up, and who
insists the newspapers never stand up
for the public, should take courage
from the following declaration of Lou
lleadly, editor of the 1'onca City C'urier
which is as above board as spitting in
a man's fai e:
So many of our citizen have express
•■(I to us favorable opinions of our pos
itions 011 the local gas question, that w
propose here with to state exactly
what we mean and where The Courier
will stand not only on this question but
on all questions than effect our people
To induce subscriptions to be risked
in finding gas, we were told that gas
would firing great prosperity, would
bring factories, would fill our stores
with customers, would give our work
in j men employment, and especially
would give us cheap fuel. On these
glowing promisesour lal>oring men con
tributed, all classes gave up their mon
ey to aid the good work. Gas was
found in abundance and the few gob
bled up all the stock, and instead of be
ing a boon to all the people, the new
lind is to be made to do service only to
the few. We are met by the declar
ation of one of the Gas Directors as fol
lows; "We have got the company and
have got the gas, and if the people
don't want our gas at 25 cents they can
1st it alone."
Pawhuska lr s a flat rate atonequar
ter the cost here; Blackwell has now
a ti at rate the samo as Pawhuska, and
many of the Kansas towns are reing
furriislud gas at L cent.; per thousand
-Such treatment of the gas proposition
will bring prosperity, and it would to
Ponca City. Ar that is exactly what
The Courier is fighting for. We shall
stand with the cheap fuel, for cheap
commercial gas, and shall stand against
the tew who would unduly squeeze the
people to till their own pockets.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
The special correspondent of the Ok-
lahoman says: It is learned that a spe-
cial prosecutor, from the department
of justice, will be in Guthrie the com-
ing week to assist in the prosecution of
the indictments against Charles E. Bill-
ngsley, president, and James C. Robb.
vice president, of the Capitol National
bank, which failed here in 1904 for
more than half a million dollars. The
territory lost $244,000 in deposits when
the bank failed. Recently complaints
have been made at the department in
Washington, that the prosecution of
Billingsley and Robb has been too dila-
tory and not stringent enough, and for
this reason, it is supposed, the special
man is to be sent to aid in the prosecu-
tion. The federal grand jury will meet
here again, next Monday, with acting
United States Attorney John W. Scot-
horn in charge. New indictments
must be returned against the bank of-
ficials, because of the irregularity of
former juries, and also against Thomas
A. Neal, indicted for embezzling $20,
0(30 court funds while clerk of the Unit-
ed States district-, court.

Indians writes a Guthrie correspondent
but two survivors, so far as can te
learned, are left in the entire west, and
both of these are residents of JDklaho-
ma Major N. C. McGinley of Guthrie
and John Carvey of Woodward—both
well preserved for their age and each
appearing to be considerably younger
than survivors of the fight on the Ar-
rickaree could possible be. Both served
in the civil war and both were enggag-
ed as Scouts in the vicinity of Fort
Hayes, Fort Leavenworth and Fort
Barker prior to their enlistment in For-
sythe's rough riders. It is not to be
wondered at that Garvoy became a sol-
dier, for he began his career on Staten
island^in Garibaldi's candle|factory prior
to the independece of Italy. lie was a
teamster in the Union service during
the civil war, and was then in the gov-
ernment service on the frontier until
the time of the memorable battle with
Roman Nose and his allied forces.
□ The fight on the Arrickaree, or on
Heecher's island as it is generally term-
ed, occurred late in September, 1868.
On the one side were fifty four scouts,
plainsmen and old-timer Indian fight-
ers. On the other were 1,200 redskins,
formidable Indian army ever arrayed
in the west and under tho leadership of
Konftn Nose, the most grafty Indian
general in the history of the west. Ilis
allied forces were composed of Chey-
ennes, Arapahoes and Brules, and just j
prior to the light on L'hc Arrickaree
these allied forces had been very sue.
cessful in their raids on the white set-
tlements in Kansas, Nebraska and Col-
orado. Hundreds of j white families,
settlers ar.d immigrants, had been kill-
ed by this marauding army, and it was
finally determined by the government
to take stringent measures to wipe out
Roman Nose and his warriors.

Wenner To Hear
Secretary Fred Wenner's plan of giv-
g evjry school land lessee in the ter-
titory, who has any ' kick" to make, a
personal hearing is producing even bet-
ter results than he had mnticipated.
The complaints are, of course, based
for the most part on the values placed
upon the land by the appraisers, [on
the basis of which the rentals arc fixed.
As the appraisers have so much w# k
to do, Mr. Wenner realized that they
might sometimes make mistakes, and
decided to give every one an equal hear-
ing, which met tha hearty approval of
Governor Frantz and the other [mem-
bers of the board.
So far hearings havej been held
in Kay, Logan, Stillwat?a, March
17, Enid on March [20 and Kingfisher
March 21. At those hearings he heard
complaints from any lessees who think
they have grievances. The magnitude
of the work which he has laid out for
himself can be judged by the fact that
there are more in all about 7,000 lessees
in the territory.
At the hearing at Blackwell, Mr.
Wenner took the testimony of 100 les-
sees. practically the entire number in
Kay county. Each one presented a
written statment as to the valuation
which he thinks should be placed on the
land he holds, signed by three disinter-
ested parties in addition to the lessee
himself, and showing why the rentai
fixed by the school land appraisers is
too high. The territory seeks to fix
the rentals at a sum that will pay 4 per
cent interest on the appraised value of
the land. In Kay county the land has
been appraised at from $3,000 to $5,000
per puarter section. While this seems
high, some Kay county farmers are
selling their lands for as lif^h ai^S.'fOO
quarter. The greatest compladnt mide
by the lessees is that the valuation by
which the appraisers have fixed ap-
praisements of the lands which they
hold are speculative rather than real.
All of the secretary's decisions at these
hearings are of course subject to view

Grand Leader Opening.
The Grand Leader Dry Goods House
had a spring millinery opening last
week that was of an extremely elabo-
rate character. The store looked a
genuine "ladies' paradise", and while
the Adler orchestra discoursed sweet
music the ladies of Guthrie and sur-
rounding country examined the fash-
ionable creations of this season in hats
and the many rare fabrics of dress
goods and lingerie for summer wear.

Chinamen much for the United States

at tne same time want his trade and

the city hall Saturday night. He de-
nounced the Idaho authorities in strin-

Moyer and associates. The theme of
his address was that the republican and
democratic parties both stood for the
capitalistic class and the only hope for
the people was socialism.

terloo Cup Coursing Club, and Secre- i
tary of the Oklahoma Futurity, has
arranged to pull off the best coursing j
Fete in ths history of Oklahoma.
This fete will be held Sunday, April j
1st on the Salt Plains near Cherokee, j
under the auspices of the National As- j
sociation and some of the best dogs in
the United States will participate.
Dr. Amos Hands, an expert dog j
trainer in Enid, has a large number of
hounds which have been shipped to
him, in training, and an abundance of
Jack Rabbits have been secured for
The Salt Plains are a very interest-
ing sight. There is no doubt that wa-
ter once covered these plains which
are now a vast expanse of salt, fifteen
miles long and ten miles wide, as level
as a floor and as white as snow, sur-
rounded by very percept.ble banks, an
ideal place for coursing, with just
enough sand mixed with the salt to
give the dogs and rabb'ts goad foot-
ing. A rabbit can be seen for miles.
There is nothing to obstruct the view.
An automobile will follow the dogs
and gather them up after each race.
The Denver, Enid it Gulf railroad,
which crosses these plains diagonally,
have arranged to run two special
trains for this occasion. The first train
leaving Guthrie at 7:C0 A. M., after
the arrival of the Santa Fe train from
Oklahoma City, and leaving Enid at
9:30 A. M., arriving at Cherokee at
11:25 A. M. The second train will start
from Enid at 10:15 A. M., after the ar-
rival of the Frisco and Rock Island
Both trains will go to Cherokee for
dinner, returning to the plains at 1:15
P. M. in time for the chase. The spec-
ial trains wilt return to Enid and Guth-
rie after the sport is over.
The D., E. & G liavp made very low

rates. The Kansas City, Mexico &
