There were also, according to the
same authority, 5 34l negroes entitled
to nil the rights and privileges of the
Indians. To these lf>,0(0 citizens the
government of the 1 nited States has
guaranteed the use iii common of
030,000 acres of land. But as a mat-
ter of fact the 3.030,000 acres arc not
held "in common" by those who are
entitled to them. Over one-third of it
is absolutely controlled, and for prac-
tical purposes is owned outright by 10 i>rot,ds and

The green flag of Ireland will float
over the city hall in New York OH St.

by Acting Mayor McClellan, although
such approval is not necessary. The
friends of Mayor tiilroy* scout the idea
that he left the city because he did
not wish to provoke criticism one way

as a joke and afterwards found its
way into print.

A dispatch to the London Times
from Si Petersburg says the - /ar and
czarina and other members of the im-

tier man embassy Thursday night. I he
guests numbered 300, and the ball was
the most brilliant ever given by a tier-
man ambassador in St. Petersburg.
purpose of preventing
nig into Oklahoma, where, it was
represented to the unsophisticated fad
man, it would be gobbled up by the
whites aud confiscated. In view of
the fact that for the most part natural
lines of demarcation such as streams,
large and small, were followed in fix-
ing the boundaries of the tribal pos-
sessions; it can be readily judged that
the very best and most productive
lands of tho nation are thus monopo-
lized by these very few nu n who had
the money to erect fences.
A funnv feature of this whole busi-
ness is that those who "hogged" the
land paid into the tribal treasury in
rents the tirst year a sum total of
$7,000, but it cost the nation 80.000 to
survey it for tliom, thus leaving a
deficit of £?,000. which the common
people had to make up for the barons.
Of course this tax came out of the
annuities from the government at
Washington and the license taxes col-
lected from whites and others doing
business here, which are the only
sources of national revenue. The bar-
ons pay into the Creek treasury annu-
ally . cents an acre for this million
and more acres of land they have
fenced. rl hey then sublet it to cattle-
men from '1 exas and elsewhere for
pasturage purposes and charge from
SI.50 to 82 per head for pasturing the
stock. The cattlemen realize the bo-
nanza which the land l arons have in
this nation, and many of them are full
partners of the monopolists, subletting
in turn the fine grazing lands to other
cattlemen who are not so fortunate as
to have a "pull" with the.barons or
the ready cash with which to buy
themselves a "pull. It was difficult
enough in all conscience to get the list
of names of individuals and tirms here-
to attached, the most of whom have
natural and "acquired rights," mean-
ing those privileges and immunities
which accrue to the squaw men. and
to attempt to get the names and ad-
dresses of these cattlemen of Texas
