known wheat growers in this county.
Oberholser will commence ciUting on
June 5 and Norris about June 7. This
is the latest that the cutting of the
crop has commenced in Oklahoma for
a number of years. As early as May
25 wheat cutting began one season and
the dates have ranged betweeu that
and June 2 and 3. There has never
been but one wheat failure in the ter-
ritory and that was during the big

The statement is made today, com-

week, to complete the Neal affair an<4

cial district officials at Enid. Al-
[ though Judge Beatichamp has named
a new clerk In Renshaw's place, it
seems that the opposition to Renshaw
and Beauchamp will keep up the fight
as* long as possible.
It is known, too, that while Sher-
wood and Harris were here, they re-
ceived letters from every district, with
possibly one exception, in which
charges were made against various
court officials of the districts. The in-
spectors had not authority to act upon
these letters, but all were forwarded
to the department of justice and in
all probability Harris is coming back
to investigate these affairs.
Neal and Court Martial.
Although It wag announced yester-
day that Tom Neal had resigned as
captain of Troop A, Oklahoma National
Guard, and received an honorable dis-
charge, the information was received
officially today that the charges
against Neal had been prepared and
preferred, but that Adjutant General
Burlingame was lenient and preferred
to let Neal resign rather than assemble
the necessary officers of the guard to
constitute a court martial for the Neal
case. Such a court would cost be-
tween fifty and one hundred dollars,
and it was to escape this cost that
Burlingame wantj?d to be lenient.
The charges against Neal were that
he had violated the militia law for the
reason that he had not called the mem-
bers of the troop together for drill
during this year. The law holds such
drills must be held monthly. Mr. Bur-
lingame informed Neal by telephone
and asked him to call at the office of
the adjutant general. It was stated
today that the court martial would
have been called this week, had not
Neal resigned. The discharge, granted
Neal by Burlingame, has not yet been
signed by Governor Ferguson. The
latter has been out of the city for sev-
eral days on account of the critical
M'ness of Mrs. Ferguson, and it Is not
kth- - when he will return. It is
stated, v. *ood authority, that Gover-
nor Ferguso- "vHl ask to see an Inven-
tory of all the troop property and
equipment before taking final action in
the Neal case.
First Lieutenant Oscar Lehrer. a
member of the faculty of the Central
Normal school at Edmond, succeeds
Neal in command of the troop. It was
stated tjoday by a National Guard of-
ficer that the succession of Lehrer to
the troop command means the move-
ment to Edmond from Guthrie of the
headquarters aad equipment of the
troop. General Burlingame stated
this afternoon that the headquarters
will remain in Guthrie.
Fight on Hixon.
It is known that a decisive fight is
being made on the re-appointment of
Dr. Almont C. Hlxon of this city as
a member of the territorial dental ex
amining board. Because of the ill
ness of Mrs. Ferguson, the governor
has not yet taken final action in the
appointment of the five members of I South McAlester, on January
the board, although he decided several with an authorized capital of $i.50u,0«0

Secretary Morton annouuced that the

When asked about the polltcal con-
ditions of the two territories, Mr. Mc-
Guire was positive that the hew state
will be Republican. He says that with
Roosevelt's popularity, had Oklahoma
and Indian territory been a united
state at the last election, it would
have given a Republican majority of
from ten thousand to fifteen thousand.

The men were to carefully study out
the details of the "job" beforehand,

assail him at a time when the coast
was clear and no chance of detection
was offered. In case of a hapless per-

The sixttenth annual session of the
U>gan County Teachers' institute con-

doubt as to the bright future of the
scholastic and educational conditions

ent John D. Benedict, who has Just re-
turned from Armstrong and Jones
academies, says there is a strong senti-
ment among the Choctaws to keep the
Indian system of schools in force till
statehood Is granted.
This will require an act of congress
and the leading Indians of thut nation
are discussing the question of appealing
to congress to make provisions for main
taining the Indian schools after March
4, 1906. Under the Curtis uct of 1898,
unless special provision Is made for
these schools they must close after
March 4. next.
When the Curtis act was passed dis-
solving all tribal relations in 1906. It
was believed the territory would have
been admitted to statehood and a new
system of public schools established to
take the place of the Indian schools.
The act also authorises a division of
tribal funds, consequently no funds will
be made available for the Indian schools
leaving the territory with only a few
schools In the incorporated towns. Few
Indian children live In tho towns, and
the leuding men of the nation will pro-
bably petition congress to make pro-
vision for the schools from March 4 to
June 1, 1906. They want the children to
have the benefit of the full school year,
and the following year, if the state sys-
tem of public schools has not been or-
ganized by that time.
