MORE INDIAN LANDS
FOR WHITE OWNERSHIP
Oklahoma heartily favors the bill to
be Introduced In ■ • ngrern toy the Hon.
Charley Curl in. of Kans;is. which pro-
vide.* that the adult heirs of any de-
ceased Indiana to whom landH had been
allotted may sell the lan<fr--.
This would release a great deal of
land In the territory to white settle-
ment and cultivation an<I Is a good step
toward the final «-.id of opening all In-
dian lands l settlement.
There are over two and one half mil-
lions of acre® of Indians lands In Ok-
lahoma, besides the Indiana territory
hinds bordering onto the territory and
this hill will at once add to open set-
tlement nearly one million of acres, in
eluding allotments In the pew country,
or over six thousand quarter sections
to be settled and tilled and improved
by white citizens.
It is only a question of time until the
Indian will have reached that point
of civilization, where he may hold his
lands with the name rights n*< the while
settler, which meana that the entire
Indian country will be settled and Im-
proved as the remainder of the terrl*
As one of the step, toward the brlgh
promises of the future the bill to be in-
troduced by Congressman Hurt's hus

as one doing Justice to the Indians con-
There has been no end of laudatlo
for drover Cleveland's noble letter f
Friday accepting the Invitation to serv
on the standing committee to prom -t
arbitration in labor disputes, whi
was constituted by the recent ■ onfei
ence of prominent cupitallsts and lea i
ers of labor organl&itlons. It is it
garded a« a gr at oppoitunlty to ren
er valuable service to the country whi
is offered by this experiment and th
ex-prealdent could not do anythln
which would be more hea iiy welc irr
ed by the nation than t<< carry the bur
den of responsibility which '■ *.• b«
laid upon him. His response to thl
summons at a time whan ho is not on
