yesterday. the officers of the Hutcliln-
n mthern road'accompsuird by two
English capitalists and engineer*from
London, who eaine on a tour of in-
l„■■■tinnof the proposM extension of
the mail, stopped In the city. The
pan v was composed of Chas Collins,
tratllc manager of the Hutchinson
Southern; 0. H. Christy, president of
the road; H. L. Jackson, chief engi-
neer; Major J. S. Mackay, president of
the Axle Trust company, of New
York and an old railroad builder, and
the English capitalists, Jerry l'rice
Williams, a noted engineer from Lon-
don, who is in the einplDy of the Eng
];-b government, and J. Stephen Jeaut.
also a noted engineer and editor of
the Engineer Journal.
The party went over the Hutchinson
and Southern on a tour of inspection,
then came across from Anthony Kan-
sas to Arkansas City with a Hutch-
inson Southern engine. At Arkansas
City they were furnished a Santa Fe
engine to (iutlirie, and arrived here at
:n in the afternoon.
I Icing mrt at the depot by a citizens
committee, the narty of inspectors
took carriages and divided Into two
partie*-. The English capitalists were
quickly driven to Iron Mound town-
ship, where a show of iron ore has
been reported ever since the opening
of the country. The two gentlemen,
with pick and shovel, disloged enough
peoimens to send back to Kngland.
There seems to be no doubt but that
there is iron ore there. While they
were busy out there the other gentle-
men were driven over the city, to see
the necessary anil most feasible right-
of-way into the city and depot grounds
As the railroad party arrived in the
,-ity unannounced, a hurried banquet
was prepared for them at the Hotel
Royal by the direction of the beard of
trade. Mayor Martin presided at the
meeting ami made % speech of royal
\v. Iconic to the railroad magnates anil
KnglMi capitalists. He told them the
short but brilliant history of Oklaho-
ma. and in what short time things
they saw had been accomplished. He
did not gloss matters, but told the
barren truth, and by his Bpeech every
one could see that he had become a
citizen of Oklahoma because he liked
the country and had faith in it.
At the conclusion of Mayer Martins
talk the two prominent Knglish capi-
talists were called upon to express
their impressions ot the country.
Thev were enthusiastic in their praise
of what they saw in Oklahoma The
natural resources and the improve-
ment and wealth of '.he territory
were beyond their imagining. Sir
l-rice Williams said that there were
not a thousand Englishmen who knew
that such a country as the new state
of oklahoma, witti its natural re-
sources and chances of investment,
existed. Here was a lanil but live
years old and it had a dozen cities of
nearly ten thousand inhabitants. The
farms seemed to be as well settled as
though a hundred years old. He was
delighted with the climate, the push
un.l energy of the people. Both gen-
tlemen were surprised at finding such
a city aa (Juthrie. over ten thousand
inhabitants, with biick houses, many
of them as large as those of Loudon.
,1 Stephen Jeans thought tins the fu-
ture place to nuke money. The coun-
try cor Id not help but grow into a
vast and rich community. Everything
in the shape of public buildings and
institutions was yet to come, with a
country il vcloped so far ahead that
it ought to have them now. Their
addresses were enthusiastically re-
ceived by the citizens, for they came
from men eminent in their country
mill learned in the commerce and the
natural resources of the world. Ma-
or Mackey made a short talk right .o
the point. He told of the importance
the road will be to Guthrie and Okla-
homa. and what the company wanted
from the city.
The extension of the line is 329
miles from Hutchinson, Kansas, to
Dennison, Texas, and runs through
the very best portion of Oklahoma and
the Indian nations. It will strike the
rich coal fields in theChoctaw country
and bring coal to tiuthrie at one-half
tlie present price. It connects at Ilut
chinson with the Rock Island. Missou-
ri Pacific and Santa Fe, and will join
with the Houston and Uenison at the
gulf terminus at Denison, Texas,

The new Indian commission has
been formed, all the members being
appointed, and it is expected it will
begin work in the Indian Territory
about May 1.
As the llawes commission now
stands it is made up of ex-Senator
Dawes. Captain McKennon, of Arkan-
sas, who were on the original commis-
sion, anil the new members, General
Arinstrung, of Washington. ex-Con-
gressman Cabaniss, of Georgia, and
ex-Congressman Montgomery, of Ken-
tucky, who were appointed yesterday
It is generally conceded that the only
men on the commission who know
anything of the business to come be-
fore the commission are ex-Senator
Dawes and General A-mstrong. The
latter was born In the Indian country
and lived there over thirty years and
has held position in the Indian ser
vice a number of times.
Chairman Dawes is anxious to get to
business before the hot season sets
for when that comes on he will return
to his home in Massachusetts. Mi-
Armstrong advances the idea that the
commission should spend considerable
time with the Indians and pay very
little attention to the people who are
in the towns who are not Indians. It
is proposed to show the Indians that
they are being imposed upon by the
crowd in that country and that it is to
tinir interest to get their full share of
the lands This will be the program
of the commission as mapped out by
by Mr Armstrong. He believes the
commission will have done much work
by the time congress c onvenes.
Robert D. Owen, of Muskogee, said.
"I believe this commission will be
able to do business with the five
tribes. It is my opinion, as an inter-
ested pa^ty on the side of the Indians,
that it is time to get down to work
and that it will be better for the In-
dians to deal with the commission
and the present congress than to take
chances on some other administration
and some other congress. I believe
that this will be made evident to them
and when that is done those whose in-
terests are against making a change
cannot defeat a wise plan of dividing
the lands anil establishing a new order
of things, I think if this new com-
mission will go at the matter right
they will have some plan accepted by
the" Indians by the next congress,
when matters can be adjusted and the
people will be better satisfied than
they are now.''

The Stillwater Gazette says the
killing of the outlaw by the people of
Cushing is a wholesome start in the
right direction. And then the Ga-
zette reads the riot act to deputy mar-
shals. It says'
"It has been fairly demonstrated to
the citizens of this country that aside
from the extortion of exhorbitaut fees
from unfortunate claim holders for
timber cutting or some other equally
trival offense the marshal system
of the territory lias been a dismal fail-
ure. It is a notorious fact that crimi-
nals have been in clover in the eastern
portion of the county so far as the
deputy marshals are concerned, as the
average deputv would ride twenty
miles out of his way if necessary rath-
er than meet one of them, this was
clearly demonstrated by the actions
of deputies S. 8. and Will Nix while
in this vicinity a short time ago when
they crawled up in the attic of a farm
house for safety rather than meet who
they supposed was Bill Doolin and his
pard. If the citizens of Cushing will
repeat the dose every time a would-be
desperado undertakes to shoot up the
town it will only be a 6hort time until
the outlaws will find a healthier 1«-
calitv for their avocation and Cushing
will be none the loser by their depar-

The Police of K n« n City Catch Him at
Marquette, Kanflan
The police of Kansas City, finding a
lot of counterfeit gold money in eircu
lation. sent for the treasury depart-
ment detectives at Washington, who
not only caught the local circulators
but the coiner. They followed the
scent up to Marquette, Kansas, and
there arrested a jeweler named M. J.
Minna They found a lot of moulds
buried out of town on his farm, as
well as gold money.
The man arrested is about 46 years
of age and unmarried. He came to
Marquette about four years ago from
Indian Territory, and has always ap-
peared to have plenty of money. It
is believed by the officers that he has
been running a private mint for years
and has put a great amount of the
"queer" in circulation. There is no
evidence that he ever tried to pass any
of the stuff himself, but he would find
dishonest greenhorns who would buy
it from him. He shipped it in small
jars which he marked "medicine,"
and a number of these jars were
among the stuff found in his shop. It
is believed he was engaged in the bus-
iness before he came to Kansas, but,
finding things growing too warm for
him in the territory, selected tlie quiet
little town of Marquette as a place
where he would not be apt to be mo-
meeting is not particularly encour-
aged. When it comes to a "show
down," however, there are plenty of
men on Nix's staff who will "stand
their ground" with nerves of steel.
The story about S. S. and Will Nix
going to the garret is a jjke, started
by some fellows who don't know the
grit of tlie Nixs as well as they might
hail they ever had occasion to meet
them in a close place.
MoKAl.i7.tXQ on wealth, Chauncey M.
Depew, the president of the New "i ork
Central railroad, says: "Anybody with
large wealth which he may have does
not enjoy it. He is in perpetual anx-
iety for fear that he may lose it, and
is perpetually jealous because he has
not as much as the man next door.
Jay Gould was less satisfied when
he died than when he began, like all
the rest us. Men who make enormous
fortunes—I have known every one in
this country who has made an enor-
mous fortune-have, growing with
their accumulations, an envy of others.
The man who is making an enormous
amount of money can be made wretch-
ed by the thought of what another
man has made. He gets to think that
all the money in the world ought to
belong to him
Now if the Kansas legislative inves-
tigating committee only had power
to see how Cleveland could make $'J,-
01 hi.000 out of his salary, the country
would find out what was meant by a
business administration.

One hundred armed men are report-
ed near Tishomingo, the Chickasaw
capital. Governor Mosely has notified
all sheriffs, constables and deputies to
report to him for active duty. His in-
tention is to disband the faction,
which is composed of Charles and Wil-
lis Brown and Noali McGill as leaders
and their followers. Tliey claim to
have been duly and legally elected as
sheriffs of Chickasaw county. The
legislature, however, ignored their
claims and other officers were in-
stalled. This faction holds that the
legislature had no authority to inter-
fere against them, hence their deter-
mined effort to install themselves now.
