AVith this issuo clos(3S the Ilrst
year of the Transporter under its
present management. While its
present rireulation is more than
double that of one year ago wr
nhall endeavor to increase its scope
of usefulness equally as much dur-
ing the next year. All wc ask is a
continuance of tho liberal advertis-
ing patronage of the stockmen of the
Territorv and the business men of
Caldwell and Arkansas City and in
return we will give you a good In-
dian and stock paper.
The first herds of tho season are
just passing up the trail and with
this issue wc commence our regular
reports of the number and owners
of herds going through. We intend
to make this a prominent feature of
.the Transporter this season and
will receive reports from both the
east and west trails :

The Caldwell Post and Commer-
cial arc institutions of tho by-gone
days. Both papers have been pur-
chased by a company with Ben. S.
Miller president consolidating the
two and instead will isruo a paper
to be called the Journal with V B.
Hutchison as editor. As it is coup-
led with good hacking and one of
l he best editors in the state the new
institution will be a sound one.

The Arkansas City Traveler says
that ex-Indian inspector Pollock
was at that place last week and
that he intends engaging in the cat-
tle business in that vicinity.
Yc hoar a proposition has been
made the "Wa-sa-shios" (Osages)
for a grazing lease in their nation.
They held a council on the 7th but
their decision is not yet learned.
The Medicine Lodge Cresset says
the Stacy Bros sold their catto and
ranch for .t-"000 the herd number-
ing 1)00. The Stacy boys expect to
locate another ranch on the Cimarron.
I have just returned from a visit
to the Indian farms on tho south
bank of the Washita river. I wont
jis far as Big Bow's camp 3o miles
from Anadarko. To me the entire
journey was a succession of most
agreeable surprises. 1 found so many
well kept fields and such iv large
number of the Indians busy with
their plowing and planting that it
seemed the most like practical agri-
culture of anything that 1 have scon
in tho Territory. 1 counted in all
r. fields ranging from 10 to 100
a.Teseach. Theo fields arc all en-
closed with oak rails put up in the
old crooked fenco fashion; each
length 10 rails in height thoroughly
well slaked and held -in placo by
heavy riders. When it is under-
stood that these Comanches Xiowas
and Apaches only came here four
ynrs ago that in fact this lias near-
ly all been done in the last three
.year" and that loo by what are
styled ''blanket Indians" we must.
conclude that the Indian is capable
of making quite rapid advancement.
Agent Hunt has reason to tako great
satisfaction in the progress made as
nearly all of this improvement has
been brought about since he took
charge of thcA'cservation four years
ago. On Cache creek and in tho
vicinity of Fort Sill 1 understand
there are at least 50 more well kept
fields making a full hundred on tho
Agency. Tho next step should bo
for permanent homes. The mova-
ble teepee should give place to the
iixed house- and 1 have no doubt it
soon will. .Several of the Indians
near Ft. Sill have already comfort-
able houses. Beside the corn Holds
i saw during my journey quite a
largo number of ponies and cattle.
Several of the Indians have the
nucleus of the cattle herds which
will in a few yearrf range over those
vast plains and furnish abundant
HubM.-tenoo for a large population.
A little help nowwili be of immense
va!u' to them in the herding busi-
ness. I am sure the time has gone
by when the Indians (thoso I mean
who Iiavo become virtual farmers)
will let tho herds diminish from lack
of care for he loft the cattle like tho
builalo to caro for themselves ; but
that day hfis gone nawv to return.
1 roll) those who help themselves"
applies here and 1. am glad lean
give so good an account ol thoso in-
diansx as would seem to call t for
ppocial application of tho principal
nf itaold adage to thair care
