the point that the federal statutes
did not contemplate that he governor
of he asylum state should everclse
discretion in the granting of requisi-
tions, but that he should honor them,
and If the persons sought to be ex
tradlted wanted to test the matter
they should apply to the courts for
a writ of habeas corpus.
Governor Haskell took great inter-

would completely change the proce-

Who Bentley Is.
For years Oklahoma has been hear-
ing about the Kickapoo frauds, and
in this connection the character of
greatest Interest Is Martin J. Bentley,
former Kickapoo Indian agent In Pot
tawatomie county. He was given a
clear bill by the United States sen-
ate subcommittee that investigated
the alleged frauds, composed of Sen
ators Curtis of Kansas, La Follette
of Wisconsin and Teller of Colorado.
When B ntley was agent for the
Kickapoos he told them of the happi-
ness they would And in Mexico. While
in that position he made lasting
friendships among his Indian wards
and still holds their confidence as
does no other man. When he went
out as agent he negotiated for a large
grant of land in Mexico. The Kick -
poos are mostly pure or fullblood In-
dians. They do not talk English,
look with disfavor on Intermarrying
with the whites and have made prac
tically no advance toward the cus-
toms of the palefaces.

Ever on the alert all day long, both
the Shawnee and Tecumseh cam
paign committees have been under a
great suspense. Each has been fully
prepared for any hostile move or sud-
d n sally on the part of the enemy,
although Tecumseh has learned dur-
ing the campaign that Shawnee will
not resort to any such methods, sen-
sational or otherwise. On election
day the Shawnee committee is main-
taining its poise, just as it has all
through the trying campaign, trusting
for results to the campaign of educa-
tion which has been used to oppose
Tecumseh's campaign of abuse, and
y to getting all the votes out, that
there might be a full expression of
the will of all the people.
