Election Quiet and Only Seven Votes
Cast Against the Proposition.
The bond election last Tuesday,
when the voters of Claremore gave
their declsloti on the proposition to
Issue 986,000 in bonds, or as much
thereof as is necessary, for the pur-
pose of installing a waterworks system
for the town, parsed very quietly, and
the proposition was carried by
practically unanimous vote.
Of Ml votes cast, 282 were for the
bonds, 7 against, and two were thrown
out as defective.
Thus, another long step in Clare-
more's march forward is taken.
First Meeting of Districting
The first session of the districting
commission appointed to create con-
stitutional convention delegate dis-
tricts out of Indian .Territory was
held in Muskogee Saturday and a lot
of preliminary work goneover. Judges
Gill and Clayton arrived Saturday
morning and were closeted with Mr.
Bixby all day, seeing no one.
Tains Bixby was elected chairman
of the commission, and the place of
formol meeting- is Muskogee. An
other meeting will be held on July ,
and after that time there will be a
meeting each week, and possibly these
meetings may last nearly all of each
week. It is estimated by the com-
missioners that It will take six weeks
and possibly eight to complete the
A number of maps that had been
prepared by Mr. Bixby were goneover
and a general survey of the situation
taken. The commission has not yet
decided just what plan will be pur-
sued The first step will be to ascer-
tain as nearly as possible what the
population of every section of the ter-
ritory is. This will be done down to
townships, the Dawes commission
having maps that show the townships.
This work will be done personally by
the members of the districting com-
mission. They will travel over a great
deal of the territory and will get from
the best sources estimates of the pop-
ulation in each section they visit.

You Know tho Studebaker Wagon
For more than fifty years its reputation has grown better every year.
This reputation is due to the good quality that has always been a part
of the Studebaker Wagons. Each part is made from tho lumber that is
best fitted for that part. New Englaud black birch makes the best hubs—
the Studebaker hubs are made of it. Butt cut, second growth black hick-
ory is the best for axles—Studebaker axles are made of it Selected
white oak is best for spokes and running gears—that is what is used in the
Studebaker Wagon. The Studebaker Wagon j
Is Perfect In Every Detail
That is why we sell it Come in and let ua talk it over. Wa hna oome i

of the Verdigris river four miles west
of claremore, Indian Territory,
good hundred-barrel well, which tests
39 gravity, which is four per cent bet-
terthan any oil heretofore found in
the Indian Territory, and today It is
roing to waste on account of no pipe
line or other facilities by which to
take care of It.
Therefore, myself individually as
well as my five minor children, Chero-

made by the Secretary ofthe Interior,
which the oil men say It Is impossible
for them to comply with and must lie

that the petition of these oil men will
be considered, and that there may l

and the real Indians and the parties
