The present legislative assembly
at Guthrie has already introduced
a resolution memorial to congress
asking the passage of an enabling
act, amending the Oklahoma home-
stead laws so that settlers in the C

would immediately be lelieved of
the payment of from $1,00 to .$2,50
per acre, for their land. The pres

from the htart.

will succed. 'The Herald is a six

six foreign printed pages. Now

The special edition, Annual

Press came to hand this week, and
it is a thing of r eauty. It is print-

are well execute 1 and true to life.
The work is one that will redound
to the advantage of Kingfisher in

It seems now that another extra
session of congress will be neccee-
sary immediately to undo some of
the damnphoolery of the past, and
to give the country a good currency

A Hash Of Good News.
The House Committee of congress i-«
has at last resolved to :eport favor-! '>08®y f"r Under Sheriff'
ably ou • he ratification of the agree- "* ^
ment with Wichita Indians, prep-
aratory to opening that country to
settlement. So far that isexcellent.
Now if the friends of that measure
notably Cur1 is and Flynn, can
succeed in brushing away the ob-
jections and impedimenta that may
come up on the floor of the House,
then we will be all right and the
Wichita Indians will for the first
time have a legal right to homes on
that land. Theset'lers are to pay
for the land at the ra'e of$1,25 per
acre which is to be held by ♦ he gov-
ernment and paid out either to the
Wichltaaor to the Choctaws and
Chickaaaws. On with the good
Congressman Flynn haB become
aroused by the abandonment of Ft.
Supply and the talked of abandon-
ment of other poeta in the south-
went and in a speech betorethe house
ft few days ago sailed into things
ft9 follows: "The government
spends its millions to build forta to
accommodate these dainty gentle-
men, the leaders of the german and
the waltz, these men who can per-
haps play bigger poker in the east
than they can in the went; and
then after making these large ap-
propriations, erecting buildings, es-
tablishing a system of sewers and a
system of waterworks, the war de-
partment issues an order to have
tho troops removed, and to have
those improvements torn up and
dismantled; and then to cap the
climax they seud us down Geroni-
mo and his bloodthirsty Apaches."
