Ilroalas uu Speed's Trull,
It is reported that the administra-
tion of Horace Speed, United States
attorney for Oklahoma, Is being investi-
gated by H. M. Brosius, inspector for
the Indian Rights association. It is
alleged that Brosius did not receive
the expected encouragement from
Speed in his investigation of condi-
tions in the territory and the state-
ment goeB so far as to say that Speed
is blamed by Brosius as endeavoring
to "block BrosiuB's game." Mr.
Speed has been engaged recently in-
vestigating frauds in Southwestern
Oklahoma which resulted in twenty-
one indictments. It is stated by his
friends that Mr. Speed was not anxi-
ous to take up Brosius's matters until
so advised by the department at Wash-
ington. It is said that Mr. Brosius's
Investigation of Mr. Speed is based
on the fact that while engaged in
private practice Mr. Speed entered
into a contract with the Pawnee coun-
ty commissioners to collect $,"i0,000
back cattle taxes, receiving twenty
per cent for hi^ fee. The taxes were
collected but later the county officials
have attempted to cause Speed trouble
by claiming the fee exorbitant, there-
fore illegal. It is said that one of the
commissioners who gave Speed the
contract now holds a position with the
Dawes commission through Speed's
influence and on this point is based
Cemeteries are Appraised.
L. W. Buflington, accompanied by
another member of the Cherokee town-
site commission, was In Sallisaw last
wc k. They are visiting the various
towns and appraising the cemeteries
laid out for each of the several towns
in the Cherokee nation. After they
have appraised these cemeteries and
the same is approved by the secretary
of the interior the towns will then
have to pay the appraised value of the
Churchill not Involved In .Scandals.
The officials of the interior depart-
ment deny that Prank Churchill, one
of the Indian inspectors, has been in-
volved in charges growing out of the
Indian scandals. Charges were filed
against Churchill, but they state that
these charges were presented early in
the spring and were Investigated by
the secretary personally. The charges
were that Churchill had purchased
land at Sulphur, Indian Territory,
which had belonged to the Indians,
and that he had taken advantage of
the opportunity to buy the property at
a'greatly reduced price. The Investi-
gation of the charges showed that
Sulphur was an Incorporated town
and that the land was not Indian land,
Churchill has been working in the
Territory, with headquarters at Sul-
phur, and had bought a lot in the
township at the earnest solicitation
of the citizens thereof. Furthermore,
this lot was bought for a friend a phy-
sician, living in New Hampshire, who
was in ill-health, and whom, it was
believed, the climate of Indian Terri-
tory would benefit. The two story
house was put up on the lot by Mr.
Churchill for his friend. The physici-
an did not go to Indian Territory,
however, and when he finally made
the decision not to go and not to take
the property off Mr. Churchill's hands
the latter sold it barely coming out
even on the deal. This was what Sec-
retary Hitchcock found when he in-
vestigated the charges against Mr.
Churchill, and the Inspector was
given a complete vindication. Sec-
retary Hitchcock regards Churchill
as the best man there is in tbe office,
but he will not recommend him to Mr.
Charles J. Bonaparte, who will con-
duct the coming investigation, unless
Mr. Bonaparte requests that he be
