A MORNING PAPER.
The World today ends its career as i veiling publi-
cation and will Tuesday morning enter the morning Held.
It will be a seven column eight pane paper issued six
days iu the week with the morning Associated Press dis-
patches with a service second to none in the territories
as announced two weeks ago. There will lie no issue
Monday evening. The morning paper will be distributed
in the city at five o'clock each morning.
The failure of congress so far this season to provide
for tlitu-niovnl of restrictions on the sale of Indian
lands brings out what is probably the most paradoxical
situation iu (his country. Congress has declared the In-
dians citizens and is about to give them a voice iu
the national goveiim t through (he granting of slate-
hood. Yet it is willing to rcliuiuisb no f the gov-
ernmeut guardianship over (he red men says the State
Couiss (fives .the Indian the right o pailicipate iu
the govciumciil of the nation and of other but refuses
I In-ill the right lo govern themselves.
Congress admits that the Indians are ipiulitied to citi-
zenship but implies that they are not capable of managing
their own affairs.
Vet there appear to be a veering of sentiment iu
Congress and doubtless before adjournment a law removing
restrictions will be passed. It will probably not be upon
the lauds of all of the Indians but only oil those of the
"less than full bloods. " Cuder the law these have more
white than Indian blood iu their vcin.
There are many reasons why the restrictions should be
removed ami a half victory is better than total defeat. A
few reasons follow :
The restrict ions are a check ii the development of the
tow ns and the agi iciilt in al ami mineral resources of the
The restrictions endanger the permanent prosci'ity
of the Indian Territory.
The restrictions should he removed so that more laud
will be Inviihle for the stale government.
The removal of restrictions tbruugli the lowering
of taxes and the improvement of the country will increase
the laud Millies and the laud still in the hands id' the In-
dians w ill be worth more to Ihem.
The average Indian allottee has more land than he
has the means or inclination to cultivate and improve
lie leases a part or all of his biddings to white men.
The rentals are low and the Indians would realize more
if they could sell their hinds and put the money out at
The lessees have no rights in the land and make no
Where lands may be sold the present law provides
that the surplus may be disposed of in tlm ipial parts

farms ami are depreciated in value. In many cases the lirst
sale is made under contract that when the remaining por
tions heroine alienable they shall be deeded over hut as
there are doubts about the legality of such contracts the
value of the land is fiiilber depreciated.
Then (he best argument for the removal of restrictions
is that under the present laws the buying of Indian lands
is largelv a speculation instead of a legitimate business
I raiisael ion ami the Indians and the actual tanners ilesir-
iii: to buy the land for homes are the losers while the
lawyers and graffeis and speculators are the ones grow-
I'nder Hitchcock's policy the Indians have been bound
baud ami foot so that they may be more easily robbed.
Secretary Hitchcock is acting innocently in the matter. He
does not understand conditions in the Indian Territory or
the Indian. Hut the many discussions at Washington of
subjects pertaining to the Indian is having its effect. The
government is gelling a belter understanding of things
as they exist in the Indian Territory and before con-
gress adjourns the restrictions will doubtless be removed
on the surplus lands of those of "less lliau full-bloods"
and the Sixtieth congress should see a more general remov-
al of restrictions.
Observations by Bunny
I want to pl'iid innocent of any
phonetic spelling that might apwar
iu this paper. The old fashioned style
is hard enougli for me.
"He not weary iu well doing hut
don't be a ipiitter if you do get
weary." A. Nestor Wright.
A North Side citizen was partic-
ularly indignant because a certain
piece of plate ran in the paper a num-
ber of times. Il consisted of a re-
cipe for making cocktails.
A telegraph operator on Main
street compared my paragraphs to
radishes. He said both wvn
bill bad poor taste.

It is only four to eight blocks west of Main street extending
from Grand View through to Brady Heights. It includes most
of the old Owen home orchard and vineyard the show grounds
and both sides of Frisco avenue north of the Katy track. Every
lot here is high and smooth overlooking the city making splendid
residence property at prices so reasonable that all can afford to
buy. The streets and alleys are plainly marked the streets being
sixty and alleys fifteen feet wide. Every full lot is "fifty feet
front by 135 feet deep to alley. The price of these lots on West
Third Fourth and Fifth streets is $2 to $4 per front foot; on
West First Second and Third streets north $3 to $6 per front
foot; and north of Katy track $3 to $5 per front foot. At this
low price it is cheaper to buy and build than continue paying rent.
