THE Zeke Moore land is furnish-
ing one of the met interesting legal
battles ever fought out in the Terri-
tory. This much sought for tract
of land is in section eight, almost
three miles south-east of Sapulpa.
As it is in the very heart of the oil
held its real value is hard to esti-
mate. Zeke has been spending his
time lately in the United States peni-
tentiary, at Fort Leavenworth, Ks.
and did not keep himself very well
informed concerning oil develop-
ments in Indian Territory. About
a year ago he sold the alienable
part of his allotment for a few hun-
dred dollars. As Zeke did not get
much out of his first sale, he tried to
make it up bv a multiplicity of
sales. He gave deeds and leases to
all applicants, and now the law-
suits follow. A suit before Judge
"Lawrence, last week, gave the title
in forty acres of the land to the Na-
tional Oil and Development Co., the
remainder is yet to be decided. The
National Oil and Development Com-
pany based their claim to the land
on two deeds One was held void
because it was taken at a time
when Ztke was proved to be a mi-
nor, a..d the effort was made to can-
cel the other deed on the ground of
inadequate consideration, but Judge
Lawrence overruled this. All per-
sons interested in Indian land titles
are quick to see that this is a valua-
ble decision for the growth of this
pre commonwealth. It thefreedman
or Jndiii" who sells his land willing
Iv Hi n -small figure, can come into
court as soon as his land gets valu-
able and h.'i"" the deed set aside be-
cause of inadequate compensation,
it would make an uncertainty about
Indian titles that could not be over-
come tor decades, It is to be hoped
that the Courts ut this country will
always take the broad minded view
ot the matter that Judge Lawrence

A tiLNi TLB.VI AN wh.i lives in
Tulsa, recently remarked that Sa-
pulpa had the best organized Com-
mercial Club in Indian Territory.
This little Iliquet, Irom a Tulsa
man, should lie appreciated by the
Business Wen's League.
MUSKOGEE now has 25,000
population and it takes little more
than a tenderfoot to remember when
Muskogee was no larger than Sapul-
pa is now. Sa nilpa's dream of
2c-,000 may not be so far distant,

The Kiefer Searchlight made its
first appearance last week, and it is
a very healthy appearing youngster.
The paper is conducted bv Jack
Tracy, and is owned by a company
of Kiefer citizens, composed of Dr.
Ira Allison, !. I) Conrath and others.
Kiefer is a town that does things,
and this new medium of heralding
its doings to the public will, with-
out doubt, have a useful existence.
Furthermore the Searchlight is Re-
publican in politics and will thus be
material aid in piling up the Re-
publican majority in Creek county.

There has been something do-'J . W. HOOVER. M. D.
ing in the Department o' th* In-
terior offices since k. A. Hitch-
cock was fuccttcicd by James R.
Mr. Garfield has been Secretary
of the inUrtor sin.-e March 4, and
has managed in three months to
raise more Cain with it than all
the Secretaries of the Interior
since Andrew Ja:kson's adminis-
tration put together.
Tne first official act caused wide-
spread panic. Three of the most
stately and imposing bureaus in
the department, and three ot the
busiest, weie the Indian Territory
division, the Indian division and
the lands and railroad division.
Garfield inquired what they were
They were there to increase the
measurement ot red tape, vVhen
the Indian office had to send any-
thing to the Secretary about the
Indian territory it would be sent
first to the Indian territory division
to be passed on and examined and
fingered and then sent to Garfield.
The new Secretary soon turned
his attention to the oil cases 111
the Indian Territory, Under his
predecessors, as far back as there
have been anv known oil lands,
this has been the champion case
of circumlocution office in the
government service. Cases would
accumulate and hang on for
months, and nothing on earth
could start them. A man would
take up an application for a lease,
the papers would come up in
regular form with a certified check
and everything at his end would
be done in shipshape order. Then
nothing more would happen; the
Interior Department wouldn't
move a,wheel. The man would
try £t last to find out what had
become of his case and couldn't
even do that. Then, usually,
he would engage a lawyer and the
lawyer would come 011 and bustle
down to the Interior Department
and get buffeted from pillar to
post without ever getting * anv-
wnere, until he got disheartened.
GarfiekHius ciit the red tape in
the matter of oil leases, and is
now installing a svstem whereby a
case can slide through in just as
quick time as it would in a real
estate office, lie sees 110 retson
why the govenment's real estate
business should not be clone in
the same fashion as private busi-
ness. He has looked up all th
oil leases that have been pending
for vears and will have them all

Hiswavot expediting matters
causes theveteran Interior Depart-
ment people to stare and gasp
They can hardly believe their
eyes and ears. Here ii an in-
stance: Charges were filed against
Tams Bixby, commissioner of the
five Civilized tribes. In accord-
ance with the regular and sanc-
tioned Interior Department policy
Bixby was given himself no con-
cern about them: ne figured that
heirs, or more probably his
his grand children, might be-
around when they were reached,
but didn't imagine that they
would ever get far enough along
to interest him. Garfield had
been Secretary about seven days
when he said, "Brinp me the
papers in the case of Tams Bixby"
Thev were brought. Garfield went
over them in the presence of the
■mploye who had brought rhem,
looked up after awhile and
said, "These charges are no*, sus-
tained bv the evidence. They are'
lismissed." And Uixby's case
was disposed of for all time there
