partment Commander G. N. Parks pre-
sided and made the comrades at home
Acting Governor Chas. Filson and
Brigadier General Baldwin lead in the
jjrand parade, the Ladies Corps and
other associations making it fully two
what G shall stand for. It shall stand
with y>ung America for Guard; it
shall be for them a battle cry; guard
the home so that there will be no sel-
fishness there; guard those in our
American schools and see to it that
there is inculcated an honest interpre-
tation of American History si that the
boys and girls shall know what this
miles long. . elected country stands and has accomplished.

Enid was selected for the next En-
Department Commander Parks de-
livered the following address:
In a few short years, the Annual De-
partment and National Encampments
will be only a pleasant memory to the
sons and daughters of Veterans and
other citizens who have attended these
The grand Army of the Republic had
no progenitors, having come into exist-
ence in consequence of the greatest
war which history records. Greatest
in point of numbers engaged, of battles
fought and losses in killed and wound-
ed. Gieatest in the amount of treas-
ure expended in its prosecution and by
far the greatest in magnificent results.
History does not record elsewhere such
terrible battles or fearful losses of life
asChichamaugua, Cold Harbor, Gettys-
burg, Fredericksburg, Shiloh, Stone
River or Spottsylvania. All other wars
pale into into insignificance when com
pared with the war of 1861 to 1865.
THE NEW G. A. R.
Let us now consider what we can do
in the way of influencing a new motto
with these veterans, in our work of in-
culcating patriotirm among the young,
the boys and girls of our land, let us
labor that sectionalism be blot'ed out
forever. The memories of a lost cause
ought Boon to be erased from all minds
and so forgetting, let a new Grand
Army arise to carry on the perpetua-
Guard the imagination of the youth
that they may find high ideals of noble
patriotism flashing before them in the j
sunlight as the days go by. Above all, |
train them to believe and to know that j
Democracy is a thing in this country; I
that no boy and no girl is better or j
worse than any other boy or girl but j
all have the same chances. So, Dem- j
ocracy should exist throughout the
schools of this great nation.
A, in this new Grand Army of the j
Republic, shall stand for Argue. I j
like to have the boys do it; they wili j
argue anyway, but have them argue
intelligently; and about the girls—the
argumentative powers of the girls are
—I guess I will have to tell you: they
are almost certain to take the other
side of any proposition. Get them in
the habit of arguing for the law and
better than that, have them argue for
the truth, for truth is the sunlight of J
the world. Now, Grand Army men,
let us see to it as far as possible, that
this new Grand Army of the Republic
"Shall know the truth, and the truth
shall make them free; then we will all
sing: "Glory, Halleluiah, for Truth is I
\ Marching On."
P. stand for Rally; Guard, Argue, j
Rally; rally for your country, the most
beautiful land beneath, the stars. Rally j
for your country and show the nobility J
of your purposes in all your acts o! '
life; rally for the flag which is a sym- j
bol of everything that is good for the j
country. Some of the Generals now j
passed to the other side, who served |
the Confederacy and have now joined j
the majority on the other side, hav«
sent to their descendents and com-pat-1
riots a noble example of complete re- |
construction. General Fitzhugh Lee J
and Joseph Wheeler did, indeed, take j
up arms against this Nation; but glo- j
riously have they retrieved that error, j
and stood at the head of the Army that \ wi
went to Cuba to save brothers bowed
down by slavery and oppression, and
at the head of both the boys in blue
and the boys in grey, the dear old flag
was above them; and we do know that
they are amongst our noblest dead.
How sweet will be the dreams of those
noble soldiers to feel that at last, they
were in the dear old home, with the
dear old Heavenly vault above and the
Union flag of the Stars and Stripes
still flying. Now, my G. A. R. Com
rades, you see that you have something
to do with the youth of America and
may I not say it for you, to guard the
home and the school, to argue for law
and truth and to rally for America and

ing held by the citizens of Chandler,
Lincoln county, Okla., the homeof Km-
bry. The resolution is signed by W. It.
Gulick, mayor of Chandler, as chair-
man and Warren Zimmerman as secre-
tary of the meeting at which the reso-
lution was passed. The resolution is a
ferocious assault on Cassius K. Peck,
carpetl)*g protege of Senator Dllling-
"ihani of New Hampshire. It appeal^
that Peck had worked in billillghath's
office, and was rewarded with a $4,000
position in Oklahoma about eighteen
months ago. Peck is held up to public
scorn as a beefer and muck-raker, and
an investigation shows that the resolu-
tion is not unfounded on facts. An in-
vestigation here shows that Peck has
been doing the bidding of D. T. Flynn
and Judge Speed and under the guise
of working under departmental orders
has held up Embry's nomination by
crowding in new chargeB. It is alleged
here that the major portion of Peck's
charges were gathered by Harry B.
Gilstrap, postmaster of Chandler, at
the instance of Embry's enemies. Sen-
ator Kittridge called for delegate Mc-
Guire last night and went over the
Embry charges. McGuire learned Bome
things that caused some cuss words.
He denounced Gilstrap as a double-
crosser and immediately started some-
thing that will result in Gilstrap's re-
moval as postmaster. Senator Kitt-
ridge said that l'eck's action would al-
so start something. The sub commit-
tee has sifted the Embry charges thor-
oughly and his confirmation will go in
this week, it is understood. Embry
has been here for several weeks. Del-
egate MeUuire received a telegram
the house of representatives Mon-
day. This is the bill segregating
the lands of the Osage Indians

ate McGuire of Oklakoma, and —

For years efforts have been j«
made to segrate the lands of these ^
Indians, but the Indians them* j,
selves have been dilatory and it
was but recently that the bill i
which passed was approved by
them. The Osage Indians some
l,Soo in number, have 58,ooo,ooo
in the treasury. The bill which |
passed segregates the fund to in-
dividuals and will give them £5o
each per quarter as interest and
n twenty-five years they are to
receive the principle. In addit-
ion the lands of the Osage, a-
bout 1,400,000 acres is to be allot-
ed, which will give each member
of the tribe about 700 acres, ex-
clusive of the coal and oil lands,
which are not to be aliented un-
til the provisions of the bill for
twenty-five years. Some of the
richest coal and oil lands in the
country are included within the
Osage reservation according- to a
