John Golobie, secretary of the Okla-

tion, said recently that Oklahoma cat-
tlemen would make a splendid exhibit.
The management of the exposition has
pffered 83.1,000 in premiums for live
stock. The ranches of western Okla-
homa are stocked with cattle from
some of the finest herds in the United
States, and their owners will be able
to compete with much assurance for
success. The commission is making a
special effort to induce the ranchmen
to take their best cattle to Omaha in

Judge Springer of the northern judi-

Choate, chief justice of the supreme
court of the Creek nation in relation
to the Iniliau courts, as follows: "Ypur
supreme court will have authority to
try all civil eases which were begun
prior to January 1, 1808. Your court
will not have authority to try anyeivil
suit begun after that date. Your citi-
zens should be advised that all matters
of administration of the estates of de-
ceased persons, and of guardianship of
children must now be instituted in the
United States court; and also, that
marriages can only be legally solemn-
ized since January 1, 1808, by procur-
ing licenses from the clerks of federal
courts and by observing the laws of
the United States in force in the In-
The Pottawatomie county boys who
attended the trial of A1 Jennings at
Muskogee were disgusted with Judge 1
Springer's method of conducting busi-
ness, but that doesn't effect Springer
in the least.
The farmers of Noble county state I
that they will buy tnachines and
thresh their own grain before they i
will pay the 9 cents per bushel, the
toll demanded by the threshers.
The action of western railroads in
making low rates to the wheat belts of
Kansas and Oklahoma from Nebraska,
Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas and
Texas points, will doubtless do much
to relieve the farmers who are embar-
rassed oyer the problem of harvesting '
their immense crops.
The graduating exercises of the ter-
ritorial university, held at Norman on
the evening of June Oth, was an im-
portant event, being the first time that
the degree of bachelor of arts was ever
'(•(inferred in Oklahoma or the Indian
territory. There were two gradutes
who were given this degree—Carlton
Ross Hume of Anadarko and Roy
Philson Stoops of Norman. President
David R. Boyd, in presenting the
young men with their diplomas, --poke
feelingly of this epoch in the cause of
higher education in the two territor-
ies, Oklahoma having reached in six
years what it took Kansas twenty
years to accomplish.
A visit to the rooms of the territorial
library is the only argument needed
to convince the most casual observer
that the place allotted is very much
too small. The hampered and cramp-
ed appearance of the surroundings is
really painful. The present quarters
are wholly inadequate and a change
should be made as soon as rooms fitted
for the purpose can be secured. Li-
brarian Dodsonin speakingof the mat-
ter says he is annoyed to properly care
for the library in the rooms assigned.
It is believed that the supreme court
will make some provision for larger,
better and more commodious quarters.
Librarian Dodson says when he is pro-
vided with proper rooms of sufficient
size he will put the library in excellent
order, which he cannot do under the

For the first time in the history of

Warden Landis of the penitentiary
has filed notice with Governor Barnes,
of Oklahoma, that prisoners from the
territory will not be kept at his insti-
tution in the future unless a higher
rate is paid far caring for £ hem. The
present rate is 25 cents per day and
there are 140 Oklahoma prisoners.
For this compensation the convicts are
to be fed, clothed and cared for. Mr.
Landis says, that the state is losing
money on the deal. The increase de-
manded will probably be given.
An exchange remarks: "People
who usually, patronize the peddlers
should remember that goods peddled
by the average peddler are made to sell
and not for service and durability, but
cheap in quality and therefore expen-
sive at any figure." A great truth. The
peddler is after the profit he can get
out of the first and only sale he ever
expects to make to one customer. He
does not expect, as a rule, to cover the
same ground twice. He can make more
money by changing his beat. The
home merchant sells goods with a view
of holding all the trade he can, and
can not afford to resort to the shenan-
nigan method of the peddler or agent.
The home merchant is also as much in-
terested in his town as any other one
man, and does his share to keep it up.
He is the one to patronize and he will
do to tie to.
House bill 8581, and known as the
Curtis bill, on May 23. was reported by
Senator Pettigrew with amendments.
In the original Curtis bill the Dawes
commission was authorized to make a
correct roll of Chickasaw freedmen en-
titled to any rights or benefits under
the treaty of 1866 between the United
States and the Choctaw and Chickasaw
nations of Indians, and their descend-
ants born to them since the time of
the treaty, and forty acres of land, in-
cluding their present improvements,
shall be allotted to each to be selected,
held and used by them. The attorneys
of the Choctaw and Chickasaw freed'
men discovered what they believed to
be an inconsistency in the bill in this,
that the Atoka agreement was made
on the 23d of April, 1807, between the
United States and the Choctaw and
Chickasaw nations of Indians, and
\vhich agreement is embodied in the
Curtis bill as amended, and which
makes 90 provision for the Chickasaw
freedman, though it does for the Choc-
taw freedmen. This agreement being
first drafted the attorneys fop the
freedmen believed that it would pre-
vail over the Curtis bill so as to provMq
for the allotment of forty acres of land
to the Chickasaw freedmen. As the
bill now stands the Atoka agreement
being a part of the bill has incorpora-
ted in it a provision of forty acres of
land to be allotted to the Chickasaw
freedmen. The Chickasaw freedmen
have been seeking to have theit- status
settled and their right defined for the
last thirty-two years, and their attor-
neys for the last several years have
been prosecuting their claims before
both the department and congress, and
the Chickasaw and Choctaw authori-
ties have all the time been contesting
these claims. If this measure becomes
a law it is contended by the attorneys
that it is only carrying out treaty
stipulations. The Chickasaw freedmen
rAimber about 4,000 and the securing
the forty acres of land each, means a
good thing to tllem, as the lands in
the Chickasaw country are fertile and
