The Enid cas't market f ir turkeys

Eggs are worth 13 cents, but the hens

The Wave wants it particularly
understood that it is strictly in the
printing and publishing business.
Our job department is open to all
comers who have the price without
reserve. The saloons have a license
to sell whiskey and they sell it to all
comers who have the price. Ihe
Wave office will print anything not
strictly prohibited by the statutes,
just the same as the merchants sell
their line of goods.

He now Languishes in the County Jail
Awaiting Preliminary Examin-
W. H Edmondson, a respected and
bard working citizen, was robbed
Sunday morning last, about 4 o'clock
in his room, nearly opposite the St.
Joe Hotel on second street, where he
sleeps alone. It seems that he failed
to lock his room door which was no-
thing very unusual in his case as he
never feared intrusion, more especial-
ly from thieves as he is not in the habit
of carrying much money about him.
Mr. Edmondson was awakenedia bout
4 o'clock Sunday m irning by a steady
pulling at his pillow, he raised his
arm, haif asleep, to readjust the pil-
low and on opening his eyes he could
plainly see the outlines of a man
from the reflection of the moon
through the window, there being no
light in the rootr. He then grabbed
the thief by the left leg and inquired
"What do you want here?" "I want
your money—keep quiet or I will kill I
you." The cold barrel of a big six
six shooter was rubbed over Mr. Ed-
mondson's face. He grabbed the big
pistol with his left hand which was
awful sore, but he held the gun until
the pain was unbearable when he
gave up under the thief's promises he
would not kill him.
Edmondson informed the crook that
his money was in his pants' pocket
under his pillow and the pants were
soon in the hands of the thief but
find his pocket book, K. P. charm and
Masonic collar button. The great j
big six-shooter found in Monroe's po.--
session was recognized as the one
stolen from Ned Brown of the Meyers'
feed yard some time ago Monroe is

age and does not present a bad ap-

Edmonson to keep quiet. Finally he
found Ihe money in an ordinary poc-
ket book, it consisted of five live-dol-
lar bills and six or seven half-dollar
silver pieces; Edmondson not being
sure as to seventh piece.
In leaving the room the thief fum-
bled about the door lock for some time
for the purpose of locking Edmond-
sou in, finally the bolt turned and the
robbed man was locked in, but the
fool thief left the key sticking in the
key hole which was the key to his
identity and capture. Had he taken
the key with him Mr. Edmondson
would have been wholly ".n the dark
as n who had robbed him as the fel-
low did not talk naturally.
After the retreating footsteps of
this amateur bandit died away on the
night air Edmondson arose, put on
his clothes and left the shack by the
back door, before doing so, however
he discovered that his watch, K. P.
badge and a gold masonic collar but-
ton were stolen also.
After reaching the outside he took
the key left in the front door and put
it in his pocket. As soo'n as he reach-
ed a light he identified the key as
one he had seen before in the hands
of John Monroe, better known around
the saloons as Jack Monroe, as it had
a peculiar file mark about it placed
there by Monroe in Edmondson's pres-
ence. Monroe claims to be a black-
sm'ithand wagon maker,he worked for
Grant Yeakey awhile; did some work
for W. Hackett and worked for a few
dayB for Mr. Edmondson week before
last.having been in the city for near-
ly a month.
As soon as Officer Thrasher, c.ty
marshal, and Deputy Sheriff Charley
Porter heard Mr. Edmondson's-reci a
of the robbery and his suspicions from
the marks on the tell tale key it was
I not long until Monroe was in custody.
He was arrested at his boarding
house in Jonesville, Mr. Worth's
place, about 8 o'clock Sunday morn-
ing. It was found that he had not
retired until nearly five o'clock less
than an hour after the hold up.
The prisoner was taken to the jail
and searched. A watch was found
which was fully and completely des-
cribed by Edmondson; three 50 cent
silver pieces were found and live
five dollar bills were unearthed from
the toe of one of the slick midnight
The money to the amount of 126.50
was turned over to Edmondson as
there was no reasonable doubt at
hand to disprove the ownership of
the stolen goods. The young man
claims he is Innocent of this robbery,
but at the same time he informed the
man who was robbed where he wnulrt

About five o'clock yesterday morn

From the Lone Star St ate. comes
the following letter written by W.
F. Gass, editor of the Ml. Vernon,
(Tex.) Herald; "I have used Chamber-
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy in my family for the past
year, and find it the best remedy for
colic and diarrhoea that I have ever
tried. Its effects are instantaneous
and satisfactory and 1 cheerfully rec-
comend it, especially for cramp colic
and diarrhoea. Indeed, we shall try
and keep a bottle of it on our medi-
cine shelf as long as we keep house.'

HASTINGS ALL RIGHT.
In the case of VV. H. Hastin

now perfectlly sane; his malady being
simply temporarily. Mr. Hastings is
resting very easy at present.
Judge Anderson late register of l he
land office turned over the burdens
and cares of his late official position
to his successor Thurs. in good shape
and he stepped down and out bearing
the high regards and earnest respect
of the people he has served for over
two years. No one ever spoke a dis-
respectful word of Mr. Anderson to
this writer, which is saying sun
thing at least, as we are accustomed
to listening to people's troubles ever)
ny. The only trouble confronting
Mr. Anderson «vas the fact that
about a dozen rank and raw republi-
can politicians desired his place or
more particulary the pay thereof and
of course they all lired their com-
plaints against Mr. Anderson to
Washington which was that he was a
rank D m icrat. Only one of them

CONGRESS VS INDIANS
Senator Jones' letter in regard ttr
Indian affairs, which was published
by The Timesyesterday, shows pretty
accurately what the five tribes can
expect. The Senate sub-committee,
of which Senator Jones of Arkansas
is chairman, has abandoned its inten
ti on of visiting the territory to inves-
tigate the situation. The trip, it
thinks, has been proven useless by
the action of the Creeks and Chero-
kees in refusing to treat with the
Congress is prepared to go ahead.
Senator Jones think" and hopes that
while the Choctaws and Chickasaw*
given the benefit of their ratifica-
u id the Dawes commission treat-
congress will regulate the affairs
of the other tribes as the igeneral
good requires, without consulting
This evidently is all that can be
done. The country must be open to
settlement and civilization. The sole
object has been to accomplish this
result in the best way and in the way
most satisfactory to the Indians
themselves. The Creeks and Chero-
k es, however, are holding back.
They are imposed upon by reckles
politicians who wish for selfish rea
sons to perpetuate present conditions.
Misled by these schemers the
Jreeks and Cherokees have have been
hoping that by their refusal to treat
hey could prevent the opening to
settlement. Such an hope is utterly
unwarranted. The existing condi-
tions are intolerable anl mint• be
remedied A change isolated the
tribesmen to make the new arrange-
ments more to their liking. It has
been accepted by the Choctaws and
Chickasaws, but the Creeks and
Cherokees are holding off. Con-
sequently there is nothing for con-
gress to do but keep faith with the
Choctaws and Chickasaws but regu-
late the affairs of the Creeks and
Cherokees without further attempt
at consulting their wishes.
Though the two obstinate tribes
are being imposed upon by desperate
politicians. Congress cannot help it.
The Indians have still time to seiz -
upon the opportunity to safeguard
their true interests before congress
meet-. If thev do not care to help
t lieuo-elves l hey need not expect con-
gress will fail to help them and the
rest of the country as it thinks best.
