Trains Into Carney.
W. P. Howell, mail carrier on the
Carney-Partridge route, informs us
that the tracklayers on the M. K. &
O. reached Carney Wednesday eve-
ning at 5 o'clock, and the people of
that town are today rejoicing that
they at last have railroad connection
with the outside world. The work
will be pushed as rapidly as possible
and it will be but a few days until
Tryon and Agra are added to the
11st of railroad towns in Lincoln
Notwithstanding the bad roads be-
tween Chandler and the northern
part of the county, many farmers in
the vicinity of Agra are hauling
their hard wheat to Chandler because
they receive a better price here than

One of the claims allowed at the
meeting of the city council last week
was the bill of the Chandler Publi-
cist for printing the resolutions in

| cation of this item was ommitted
from the report of the council pro-
ceedings as printed in the Publicist—
a mere oversight, no doubt.

ing House, passing into his windpioe.
He was taken to Bristow, Several
of the Indians have been arrested.
We learn on reliable authority
that the Choctaw tracklayers are at
work, and it is expected that they
will reach Caandler in about two
weeks. It is rumored that the Choc-
taw will build no depot here, but wil]
use the Frisco depot, since the two
roads are practically under the same
Grand Patriarch H. W. Leinin-
