OLNEY TAKES A HAND
It* Orilrn Arrests Mule l« Connection
with the Kcck Inland Trouble III
Washington, July IT. — ( Special. |
Some dispatches were exchanged yes-
terday between federal officials of Ok-
lahoma and the department of justice.
They related to the trouble on the
Rock Island road growing out of the
townsite war The officials of Oklaho-
ma represent a serious state of atTairs
accompanied by threatened contiuued
lawlessness, and they ar* not certain
how to handle the matter, and ask ad-
vice. Attorney Oene Olney has
authorized the L nited States marshal
to employ deputies, at his discretion,
sufficient to take care of property in
the territory, and also directed that
arrests be made as soon as possible.
He also suggested that the grand jury
l>e set to work at once so that indict-
ments can he made and the work of
the department hastened. A demand
has also arrived from the citizens, ask-
ing that congress do something with
the bill in conference that relates to
A bill passe I the house making it
compulsory on the part of the railroad
to erect ami maintain depots at the
government towns and also a bill pass-
ed the senate requiring that a county
fr.-at election be held iu the two coun-
li.s where tin* townsite trouble pre
vails. In conference the matter could
not be agreed upon and there the con-
test has remained for months It is de-
manded by the citizens interested that
the conferrees make a report and of
course they are very anxious that they
ugree to the house bill The senate
conferrees, however, with the excep-
tion of lierry, hold out for the senate
bill. Kilgore, of the house conferees,
also is favorable to the senate bill.
There is little disposition shown by
either side to accept the terms of the
other, and hence the chances for con-
gressional action do not appear to have
'oeen improved of late. 'I here is a dif
frrence of opinion about the probable
effect the late troubles will have in
the matter. Some claim that the sen-
ate cannot now appear to concede to
the demands of the mob, while othets
insist that there will be some disposi-
tion to do something that will fettle
the tight in congress with the belief
that thia will have a tendency to allay
iioubles in Oklahoma.

the inusket shall receive the same pay

cial from changing, altering, suspend-
ing, or depriving in any way the sol-
dier from dues which his service enti-
tles him to.
ti. We demand national and state
boards of arbitration to be elected by
the people, to settle and adjust the dif-
ferences between the employer and
the employed, and we further demand
that where the property of a corpora-
tion has been placed in the hands of a
receiver that the wages of the em-
ployes shall be a first item on its earn-
ings and assets, and we denounce the
appointment of any official or parties
interested as receivers of any corpora-
7 We believe that there is no dif-
ference between the republican and
democratic parties That the leaders
of both are the agents of the money
power in the enactment of laws that
make the rich richer and the poor
poorer, as evidenced by past legisla-
tion and current events. Therefore
we are opposed to fusion with either
of the old parties, and pledge our-
selves a a party to make the fight for
home and native land on principel
. Whereas our fair territory con-
tains a population of 'J.' 0,000 and taxa-
ble wealth aggregating $loo,ooo.oOU,
and whereas we have an abiding
faith in the capacity of our people for

tlers of old Oklahoma. Further, that
we favor commutation of homesteads

Deputy Morris O'Malley and posse

on the above charge, but on the way
here Smith gave bond and was re-
leased. Mrs. Smith is a young woman
about "-M years of age and has in jail
with her a fourteen months' old baby,
which seems to enjoy the racket of the
federal birds. Mrs. Smith does not
have much to say, but feels hopeful of
getting out in a few days on bond

SOME GOOD RESULTS,
However much of a failure Debs has
made of the Pullman strike and hard
as are the results on those who went
out under his autocratic command, the
results will be of vast benefit to the
people. It is another evidence that
good lurks in almost eyery evil. The,
fact that Pullman is an octopus on
whee's has been shown to the country
in such a forcible light that his extor-
tions will soon be at an end. Con-
gress will squelch him b3* the passage
of a bill within sixty days regulating
the rates to about one dollar for
twenty-four hours and cutting off the
porter ''tip.** Competition, encour-
aged by the expiration of Pullman's
patents, has sprung up in the organi-
zation of an immense company for the
manufacture of competing cars.
The most important benefit will be
an establishment of a national arbi-
tration board. This upheaval has
called out the almost forgotten fed-
eral arbitration law passed in 188h. It
provides for a commission of arbitra-
tion in differences between railroads
and their employes, provided both par-
ties to the controversy consent to sub-
mit their differences to the board.
One member of the board is to be
selected by the railroad, another by
the employes and the third by the two.
The act also provides that the presi-
dent may select two commissioners,
one of whom at !east shall be a resi-
dent of the state or territory in which
the controversy arises, who together
with the I nited States commission of
labor, shall constitute a temporary
commission for the purpose of examin-
ing the causes in controversy, the con-
ditions, accompanying the best means
for adjusting it: the result of which
examination shall be immediately re-
ported to the president and congress
and on rendering such, services of the
hoard shall cease.
The law provides for nothing but a
rsport and gives the board no power
except to make an investigation. The
proposed arbitiation will thus be the
giving of a stone when bread is asked
for. The American people will not
rest at this, however. The O'Neill
law is inefficient, but it is a beginning.
It must be followed up by a genuine
compulsory arbitration law. The
warning the people of this country
have received in the A. R. I . strike
is sufficient to show us that we can
not afford to approach so close to
bloody revolution again. We may
topple over the precipice next time. It
behooves us to see that a good service-
able arbitration law is passed at once
Congress is aroused aud a strong com-
pulsory arbitration bill is a certainty.
This will be a big step in the solution
of the "labor problem."
Debs* strike has not, then, been a
total failure—except in immediate re-
sults to Debs and the poor workmen
he led out; in the end. however, it
will prove a blessing to all laboring
men and people generally. Only by
agitation can old conditions be
changed and great reforms iuaugu
