public and of Colonel Applcton of tli6
Seventh regiment that he expected
his men to be relieved very soon, vio-
lence and disorder continued to-day as
marked as at any time during the
past week. It is impossible for the
soldiers to cover every place where
there is danger of an uprising, and
the strikers and their sympathizers
are carrying on a guerrilla warfare.
The hope that at least some of the
soldiers would be able to spend Sun-
day with their families has been dis-
sipated, for the attitude of the strik-
ers indicates that if the soldiers are
soon relieved from duty there will be
worse scenes of violence.
With 1,500 regular policemen, 1.000
special officers, 300 or more l'inkerton
detectives and 7,000 of the state's best
troops, the mobs continne their riot-
ous work, despite tho fact that the
weather is severe and they are mov-
ing around through snow and slush up
to their shoe tops. Many of the mobs
are led by men who have no real in-
terest in the strike except tliat they
sympathize with tho strikers. About
200 of the men who struck have gone
back to work at the old rate of wages,
but many of the new men have quit
work, and the strike leaders claim
that they will win beyond question.
This morning Judge Gay nor of the
supreme court issued an alternate

option to run cars according to de-
mands of the complaint or show cause

Murdered in a Ilrutal Manner.
St. Louis, Mo., Jan. 28.—The dead
body of Rebecca Land was found iu
the McLean building yesterday and it
was thought she had died from can-
cer, but an autopsy completed this
afternoon showed that she had been
strangled, the grip of the murderer
having been so great that her neck
was fractured in two places.
So far no clue to the murderer has
been found but the police are search-
ing for a man who had acted as her
partner iu an employment agency
which she had conducted in the office
where she was found dead. Of three
husbands of the woman one is dead,
the whereabouts of the sacond are
not known, and the third is in the
city separated from his wife throe

Secretary Smith, in reply to a house
resolution asking for the causes of de-
lay in opening to settlement certain
lands in Oklahoma ceded by the Kiclc-
apoo Indians, says that subsequent to
the agreement by which the lands
were ceded, the interior department
received many communications assert-
ing the Indians were dissatisfied and
that their assent was obtained
through misrepresentation and fraud.
The great difficulty in making allot-
ments was the source of much delay.
Under certain conditions a man has
a right to take some government tim-
ber, but it iB better to consult a dep-
uty marshal about it than a lawyer.

with the Indians.
fiThe Indian Territory Bar Associa-

Territory court bill, recently passed

faulty with regard to the assignment

bill now reads no creditor who has
been preferred in an assignment can
expect to realize anything on his debt
on account of the many provisions
made in the bill for cpnteitiujr
