The Eimtlve Hhoivi the Condition of the
Territory. — Warrant Indebtedness
Amount* to 9S48.S01.04, or One
Dollar Per Capita—Legislation
The message of Gov. C. M. Barnes to
the Fifth legislative assembly was
placed in the hands of both Rouses to*
day, and being read by him, was re-
ferred to appropriate committees. The
meaaage is quite lengthy, occupying
over fifty sheets of closely typewritten
The firat section calls the attention
of the legislature briefly to the accom-
panying reports of the several territo-
rial officers. He then refers to the
prosperous condition of the territory
and the whole country, which he at-
tributes to the national policy of pro
tection and a Republican national
administration; says the live stock
interests and crop prospects for the
coming year were never in as fine a
condition before at the present season
of the year.
The governor then proceeds to con
gratulate the legislators that they
have assembled under such bright and
happy auspices, and that they have no
conditions of calamity incident to hard
times to deal with, and may turn their
attention with pleasure and satisfac-
tion to a careful revision and modifica-
tion of the laws upon the. statute
books, and the enactment of new laws
such as the expanding interests of the
territory may seem to require.
The governor calls the attention of
the legislature to the financial condi-
tion and requirements of the territory
by referring it to the reports of the
auditor and treasurer lie says the
expenses of the territory have been
uniformly greater than the revenues
provided to mee', them, and that the
casual deficit occurring year after year
has resulted in an outstanding general
fund warrant indebtedness of 8253;-
752 74; that to ascertain the aggregate
of the outstanding wan ant indebted-
ness of the territory it is neces^ry to
add to the above amount th« deficit on
account of the library fund, the nor-
mal school fund and the deaf and
dumb school fund, and to estimate the
accrued interest upon al. outetandi g
warrants, whieh makes it quite likely
that it amounts to nearly $348.501.04.
to which he says should be added the
985,000 due the contractors for build-
ing the Northwt-atern no mal school
at Alva, making a grand total of the
debt of the territory $433,501.04.
He briefly calls attention to that
part of the auditor's report containing
the proceedings of the board of equal-
ization for the years 1897 and 1893, and
tells the legislature that a careful ref-
erence to the tables therein will enable
it to estimate and arrive at a definite
judgment as to the necessary appro-
priations for the ensuing two years.
He calls attention to the fact that
many of the counties have never paid
into the territorial treasury the fall
amount due from them, and the fact is
dlaclosed in the collection of these
moneys that there is no law by which
these county collectors can be com-
pelled to mnke final settlement with
the treasurer and auditor, and that
many counties are shown to be delin-
quent In large sums, and there is no
means of discovering whether the
collectors are retaining in their own
hands these moneys or whether they
have failed to collect them He de-
clares that the requirements of the
law in respect to a proper accounting
of these olticers are manifestly weak
and should be remedied; and they
should be compelled to make a final
settlement once a year. Lie d vote*,
considerable space to the revenue,
assessment and levy, and the equaliz
atlon of taxes, and asserts that taxes
In Oklahoma have been "no greater
than in any of the progressive states
about us," and broadly insists that the
territorial tax has been les* than any
western state or territory, and claims
that the tax rate has been materially
reduced in almost every county and
district in the past year,
He justifies the action of the territo
rial board ot equalization and says its
action has beenfmaliciously and wil-
fully ihirepresented for political
campaign purposes;" he com-
pletely justifies the tax raise of
86 per cent in Woods county, but says
that if the raise bad been promptly
extended on the tax books of that
county when the board made the raise
it would not have exceeded 37
cent. Declares that he is not wedded
to th • present system of levying and
collecting the revenues, and that if
the legislature can devise a better
system it sha 1 have his cordial appro
vai; but while he says this he proceeds
to argue against any change and cites
the fact that it has not only been on
our statute books for some years but
been te ted in the courts and sustain-
ed, and that a new system, whatever
it may be, would likely meet with the
same objection and be a source of
trouble. Recommends better compen-
sation for the assessors so that intelll
geut and competent men can be se-
cured to do the work.
He recommends that a more just law
be passed with reference to the taxa-
tion of property in the Indian reserva-
tions and that such property be taxed
only for the territorial tax and for
judicial purposes.
Compliments very highly Charles H.
Wilson for his able management of the
school land depertment, and dwells at
length upoa the necessity of a law de-
fining how and in what proportion the
money arising from tectlons 13 shall
be apportioned between certain educa-
tional institutions, recommends that
some action be tak> n with regard to
sections 13 and 33 in Greer county so
that the revenue derived from them
can be used and not be compelled to
lay Idle in the treasury.
Recommends that congress be asked
to reimburse the territory for lost
landB by donating to the territory
the 40,000 acres of land em
braced in camp Supply on the west for
eleemosynary purposes.
Recommends the creation of the of-
fice of commissioner of public lands
who shall be charged with the super-*
vision and leasing of all school and
public lands.
Calls attention to the requirements
of public institutions of learning and
makes recommendations
Merely calls attention to the fine
no mal school building at Alva, but
offers no suggestion as to its cost or
other circumstances connected with
the erection of the building.
Thinks the apportionment of the
public school money should be based
npon the daily average attendance and
uot upon district or county school cen-
Recommends a liberal provision
should be made for Langston Agricul-
tural and N >rmal university.
Suggests the creation of a board of
charities and corre tions
Asks the legislature to give its at-
tention to the silbj ct of a wider pro-
vision for the deaf, dumb and blind
ins itutions be created under the act
of 1897.
Manes a lengthy review of the Okla-
homa division of the world's exposition
at Omaha, the total cost of which was
$7,000, and recommends that ap-
prop iation be made to reimburse the
counti's and individuals who advanced
the means to the te'ritory to pay the
expenses of the territorial exhibit.
Refers to the cattle growing inter-
ests of the territory and make« rec-
ommendations and suggests the ap-
point ment of a territorial bo rd with
suituble compensation whose whole
time shall be given to their duties.
Refers encouragingly to the man-
agement and condition of the sanitar-
ium at Norman, where there are now
260 inmates at a cost of $200 each per
year to the territory.
Asks the legislature to make s^me
provision for youthful criminals and
incorrigibles, and urges its importance
at once.
The cost for the territory of trans-
portation and the keeping of the pris-
oners convicted and sent to the peni-
tentiary at La sing, Kansas, for the
the two \etrs ending June 30,1898,
amounted to $34,724 53, the bill for the
last six months not having yet been
sent to the g vernor.
Thinks the national guard ought to
be kept up but leaves the subject to
the wisdom of the legislature, with a
recommendation that if the organiza-
tion is continued provision should be
made for salary for the adjutant gen-
eral and to enable the guard to have
one encampment annually Thinks
that an app opriatlon of $2,000 should
be made for the, Roy Cashion monu
ment at Hennessey, a'so for the mak-
ing of a territorial banner with the
coat of art.As inscribed upon it.
Asks for an appropriation, not to
exceed $1,200, to pay the expenses in-
curred organizing and subsisting the
volunteers of troop D, Rough Riders,
and the Oklahoma battalion, for the
war with Spain.
He waxes sarcastic when he comes
to the election laws, and indulges in a
few expletives, and forgetting the fact
that the Republican legislature of
1895, of which he was the speaker of
the lower house, pass d a bill intended
by it to be discriminating and ostra-
cising in its operation, dips his pen
into his $15 Inkstand and declares that
the present election law should be
"repealed from start to finish:" that
it was the work of men who had not
the manhood to act openly and'^tamps
the makers as political cowards.
Thinks that, in view of the irreat in
crease of population, the question of a
reapportionment act might be a wise
and just me-sure; advises the repeal
of the public weighers' act, as there is
no eartnly use fdr such an officer, and
closes with the suggestion that the
criminal code needs amendment and
modification, but does not suggest in
what particular,
