was urged by Delegate Flynn and
Tire in Oklahoma City.
Last Monday at 3 o'clock the old
Pickwick Hotel building was gutted
by fire and in the afternoon of the
same day a fire in the frame building
opposite the Lee Hotel made things
look very much as though Oklahoma
City was going to have a big fire sure
enough. The tire department, how-
ever, soon controlled the tires and no
great damage was sustained. With
everything as dry as tinder, people
living in the towns should be very
careful with fire. The tire in build-
ings opposite Lee Hotel was caused
by burning waste paper in back

The fellows arrested for cattle
stealing the first of last week had
their preliminary on Thursday and
were bound over in the sum of $1,500
each. The Territory seems to have
a very strong case against the de-
fendants. L. Renner assisted officers
in capturing the fellows and this
explains how cattle came to be in
his pens. For some time, some of
the men in the Chickasaw have
suspicioned that cattle stealing was
going on and they had been on the
look out. When some time before
cattle was brought to town, one of
the parties asked Mr. Renner what
he would pay for certain kind of
cattle he informed them and he in
turn informed officers and when
cattle were delivered officers were
on the look out and bagged the
parties. When the cattle were brought
to pen one of the parties was very
anxious to have them killed and
brands destroyed: but Renner sue-

The city supply of water is running
short and the city "dads"' hardly
know what to about it. The present
city well does not seem to be furnish-
ing a big enough supply. It furnishes
a good deal of fine water; but during
this dry hot weather it would take al-
most a lake of water to supply the
demand. They talk some of sinking
a deep well but they are afraid that
water might not be so good: but
water is something the city must have
and steps should be taken to furnish
city with an abundant supply. A wat-
erworks system without an abundant
supply of water is not worth much,
for at very time of season when water
is needed worse the city has not the
water to meet the demand and users
It is reported that a man in West
Norman was arrested for cutting
weeds in his yard. The complaint al-
leged that the women and not the
men in West Norman were the only
parties in West Norman having the
right to cut weeds, except in case of
bachelors who were included in the
list along with the women. Judge
Williams says he lives in W est Nor-
man is married and won't be caught
violating the custom of his side of
town. In East Norman the custom
seems to be some different in that no
one seems to have the right to cut
weeds save those having a special
permit. When the new balls and

Big Blaze at Chickasha.
Last Sunday night one of the busi-
ness blocks, save one building the
Chickasha National Bank, went up
in smoke. The origin of the fire
is unknow; but was supposed to have
started in a cigar foctory. It was a
fortunate thing that the wind was
not high or the whole business por-
tion of the town would have been
wiped out as the town is without
waterworks or means of fighting a

one mile north of Noble. Twen-
ty-two cars were derailed and traffic
on road delayed for nearly twenty-four
hours. One brakeman was missing
Thursday morning and it is not known j
whether he will be found in wreck or j
not. The wreck took place in a deep j
cut where road makes a sharp curve j
and company could not throw a My
around the wreck; but was forced to
clear it out of cut before they could J
get trains through.
Tax Levy Maue.
Last year, the tax receipts show a
levy of 10 mills for county purposes.
This year the asses-ed valuation of;
county shows an increase over last
year of over $200,000 and naturally a
lower levy for next year would be ex-
pected; but we find commissioners,
have made this year's levy 17.8 mills.
The Populist commissioners on a much
lower assessed valuation succeeded in
meeting expenses of county on a 15
mill levy and many Democrats
thought this too high: but they are
finding out now that they were mis-1
Proclamation Still Delayed.
The President has not yet issued |
the proclamation opening the new
country. It is all prepared and will
certainly begiven to the press not
later than Saturday. The cause of
delay was twenty allottments in the I
Wichita country to squaw men who
were refused allottments by allott-l
ing agents; but won right by taking11
their case to Washington. It is set-|
tied that the country will be opened!
to settlement by lottery and plan!
will be substantially the same a l
plan published last week in this paper.
Next week we expect to be able tol
