The Other Side.
Tho Wichita Eaglo recently con-
tained an intorvicw with C. B.
Young a gentloman who has just
finished a careful survey of Okla-
homa district in tho interest of a
colony or organization of men who
possess tho means to develop and
improvo farms. Ho traveled over
tho cntiro ground up or down every
stream and tributary of any import-
nnco carefully examining the
Boil grasses and minerals timber
and water whero found as also tho
location of tho town sites of tho
speculators and leaders of tho
boomer invasions with tho oyo of a
practical fanner and stock raiser
going into tho district at Cull farm
ranch and coming back by tho way
of the Otoo Agency. IIo unhes-
itatingly declares that including
tho bottoms or valleys of tho Cim-
arron and its tributaries and tho
Cottonwood rivor Doer creek nnd
nil tho other streams that not to ex-
ceed two por cont. or ono section
in fifty IB fit for anything but graz
ing purposes; that as an ngricul-
tuial country it is n humbug whoso
glories and richnoss havo no exist-
unco outsido of tho brains of in on
who havo for speculative purposes
bocn doluding honost and confid
ing men. Mr. Young says ho is
acquainted with tho soil of West
orn and Southwestern Kansas and
ho knows of no lands subject to
homestead and settlement in tho
unorganized counties of Kansas
that do not far excel tho land
known as Oklahoma a district that
uo tnbo of Indiana dosiro to occu
py and that it is worso than high
way robbery to doludo confiding
men into going down thcro with
thoir wives and children. His re
port shows that in all his travels
covering hundreds of miles ho
found no land in tho Territory out-
side of tho reservations nnd with
tho oxcoption of a few nnrrow belts
which wero outsido of tho Oklaho.
ma district thero is nothing suita
bio for agricultural pursuits.
Tho order of tho government
has saved thousands of poor
men from hardship and want and
it was mado solely as n duty to nil
thoso who may contomplato going
to that Territory undortho protec
tion Qfthe boomers' organization.
Ho ab n officer of the St. Joseph
colony was eont down thero for
tho purpoo of gathering tho facts
deMrcB tho PUbBlanco ofhis report
Vinita January 27 1885.
EntTonB CntKFTAiN: Tho most
interesting earthly subject to tho
Indians of tho Territory is proba-
bly indicatod by tho word "Okla-
homa." It means a determined
effort on tho part of tho hard heart-
ed lawless and ignorant settlors
oi tho borders of tho border states
to tako Indian lands by forco or
by such a bIiow of forco as will
justify tho interposition of Con
gress to compol a sale of tho covet-
ed Territory by tho Indians.
Thcro is no doubt that this thing
is well understood between tho
boomers headed by Couch and
Senators Inalls and Plumb of
Kansas. Couch and his men wero
to intrudo and defy tho Govern-
ment and so bring matters to tho
brink of bloodshed. Tho adroit
Senators on their sido wero to pro-
poso measures to avoid a conflict.
Tho only practicable measure was
to yield tho point to tho intrudors
and offer to buy from tho Creeks
and Seminolca tho land thoy wero
induced to part with in order to
settle othortribos. This will proba-
bly bo tho final result of flic Okla-
horan boomers and tho question
with tho Indians of tho Territory
is if this kind of proceeding is
to commence when and whero and
how is it to end?
Tho treaty with tho Creeks and
Scminolcs as to tho lands in ques-
tion is precisely tho sarao as tho
treaty with tho Chcrokccs tis to
their lands west of ninety-six not
yet occupied by other friendly
tribes. The land was nut in the
hands of tho United States in trust
to settle friendly Indians upon and
for nothing else If it had not
been for that purpose tho Indians
would not have let tho land go at
all. So it was with the Choctaws
and Chickasaws. Every ono of
tho five tribes whoso tracts were
covorcd by their respective pat-
ents in fee assigns a good portion
of thqir lands to sorvo ono and tho
samo general objoct. This lias
been repeatedly declared by the
United States government when
tho subject of Payne's invasion
camo beforo the oxecutive legis-
ativc or judicial departments.
Now if tho government backs
out from compelling a few of its
vagabond citizens to obscrvo its
obligations in one particular so
important and essential as this ono
what are wo to expect? If Okla-
homa boomers succeed in taking
Oklahoma thero will soon bo
Cherokee Strip boomers who
will find it all tho easier to follow
in the beaten track because it has
been scientifically and systemat-
ically laid out and engrafted upon
tho Indian policy.
It will becomo fashionable to
belong to tho boomers and thore
will-eomc-tu bo nothing UrgcrorirEr
bio in it. Evory timo tho boom
ers succeed tho less compunction
there will bo on the part of tho gov-
ernment to resist Echemos of tho
kind. Whon all tho land set apart
for the settlement of other Indians
by tho fivo civilized tribe3 has been
fully boomed into tho hands
of tho whites thero will bo still
lots of boomors left. In fact
thcro is no reason to supposo they
will not havo increased and made
to include all theso who havo been
encouraged to want Indian lands
and to regard tho United States
government as a real though un-
acknowledged abettor of that want.
There will still bo Indian lands
left to boom. It is truo there
will bo no placo for tho Indians to
go. Their only outlot to a
foreign country will bo an outlet
no nioro. What then?. Tho Unit-
od Statos will have forced tho In-
dians to abandon most of thoir
country and will havo seized it on
that protoxt. Tho romaindor can
bo obtained according to troaty
only by extinguishing tho tribos
and then taking it becnuso thoy
havo becomo oxtinet. Thus will
the great Unitod Statos govern-
ment havo faithfully carried out
tho stipulations of Indian treatios
and such is tho future wo are to
expect if tho Indian sits idly by
and soos Couch and followers tako
forcible possession of Oklahoma.
Ofcourso no ono will seriously
advise the Indians interested to
fightbut thoy can talk. Can say
something. Thoy can domand.to
havo tho intrudors romovod and
say that thoy will yield to any-
thing reasonable upon tho ground
of expediency but that they will
not yield to forco. Thoy can very
respectfully submit that beforo it
13 possible for them to enter into
any negotiations in regard to the
roscrvod lands thoso lands must
bo fico of intrusion and thoy can
give as a roason the cortuin conse-
quences which will follow in tho
future should they do otherwiso.
Bosidcs all this the Indians of
this Territory can sot about doing
what thoy should havo done long
ago. They can ask themselves
this important question: Is thero
no way to get rid of intruders and
trespassers upon our soil except
by uppoal to tho executive' au-
thorities of tho Unitod StatcH gov-
ernment? la it y eueh appeal
thatwhito Dion get protection for
estates- at.utuu by 4uo aamo
government to them? How is it
that thoy aro sufficiently guarded
from trespass and that wo aro
not wo having tho samo eviden-
ces of right to our lauds that thoy
have to theirs. In short what good
does our patent in foo do us as a
nation and what good should it
Tho answers to theso quostions
will bo contained in this ono fact:
A patent or deed in feo from tho
United Statos government is prac-
tically worth no more than a prom-
iso or plcdgo mado in a treaty
unless it can bo used in a court of
justice to dofend the owner against
tho intrusion of all tho world be-
sides. What tho Indians lack and
what thoy must havo in order to
bo fully protected is judicial
protection tho protection of tho
courts. It is not necessary at nil
that they should becomo citizens
of tho Unitod States or that they
should alter their condition nt
homo. An Englishman with a
deed is perfectly protected by tho
United States court. Whj' not an
Indian with tho samo cvidenco of
C. B. Blood.

itant "has not been n clean city
from tho day of its foundation.
Thcro is Oriental dirt nnd Occi-
dental dirt. It has como to be a
foreign city. Merchandise fills
tho sidewalk and in many places
crowds tho pedestrian into tho
Btroet. Offal is thown thoro. Tho

mer and tho six months' rain aro

keep watch and ward over the
Commenti.no upon a remark dis-
paraging tho work of tho newspa-
per reporter the St. Louis Post
says: "As for accuracy and truth-
fulness thcro is no calling in the
world which is subjected to ho
severe a tost as that of n reporter.
Tho doctor's mistakes are hidden
under the ground tho lawyer's arc
known only to tho judge tho min-
ister's congregation cannot answer
him back tho merchant's mistakos
are rectified privately but thou-
sands of critical readers stand
roady to tost tho reporter's work
and if ho makes a mistake tho
paper is called to account for it
A dispatch from Abilino says:
"Tho Oklahoma boomors in this
vicinity havo abandoned the fight
and are joining a colony which is
beintt raised by V. P. Wilson of
this city for settlement in tho South
Platte valley tho richest farming
region in Colorado." I here aro
many regions in which the Oklaho-
ma colonists could take up undis-
puted claims and do as well in all
probability as they could if un-
molested in tho Indian Territory.
Whatevor the legal status of the
Oklahoma lands may be attempts
to settle them in opposition to the
Kovernmcnt's interdiction will
jirovo less profitable than to settlo
upon land unrjuestionaoiy open to
homestead or pre-emption claims.
In regard to tho quality of tho
lauds and climato the efforts to
settlo them suggest they must be
good but W. II. II. Curtis a woll-
known citizen of northorn Kansas
writes to tho Troy Chief from tho
Cheyenne agency as follows:
If that country (Oklahoma) was
thrown open Tor settlement it
would be hooded by thousands of
poor people who would better
themselves by dying and bctore
twelve months n cry would bo
heard going up from tho half-
clothed and starving settlers call-
ing for food and raiment from the
friends thoy had left behind. The
country would have to undergo a
climatic change beforo it could be
farmed oven if tho soil was good
which it is not as tho rains are so
irregular. Thoso lines aro not
paid for; they may not pleaso tho
Oklahoma boomorB but neither aro
they written in tho interest of tho
cattlemen. I caro for neither class
but writo in tho interest of what I
bolieve to be tho truth. Emporia

Whothor sheep growing has been
a gront success or failure in many
parts of tho West has been well
ventilated through personal oxporU
ence of brcodcrs in their letters to
live stock journals during tho
past year. Wo know of a surety
that tho pionocrs and prcsont
haudlors of Angora goats havo had
no cause to complain of thoir in-
vestments In tbo breeding of this
hardy and valuablo animal. A
year sinco wo formed the acquaint-
ance and enjoyed a brief association
with ono whose success as n breed-
er of fino and profitable flccco-
bcaring Angoras has given to him
tho titlo of tho Goat King of Amor-
ica. Wo refer to Mr. C. P. Bailey
president of the Angora Hobo and
Olovo Co. of San Jose Cal.
whoso incomo derived from this
manufactory and his herd of 5000
goat8ona ranch near Littlo Hum-
bolt Nevada reaches above 850-
000 a year. Last year ho shipped
East somo 15.000 pounds of moliair
and shipped largo numbers of
Angoras to tho Sandwich Islands
Texas and Wyoming. His puro
bred males find ready salo in
Texas at from 850 to 8100. per
head and his females but littlo
under thoso figures. IIo had one
wether in his last year's shipment
to Texas that clipped 11 pounds
of mohair worth GOc a pound.
Twelve years ago Mr. Bailey was
reduced in pocket by stock and
other ventures in California to less
than 8500 in availablo means.
With this sum ho purchased n
bunch of common goats and a puro
Angora buck and with a burro
packed with cheap camp outfit and
provisions he wont with them to a
mountain range and devoted sov-
cral years to herding breeding up
and increasing tho numbor of iiis
flock. Sales of wethers for mutton
and investing tho proceeds in puro
Angoras soon convinced him that
he could with tho common goat
as a base and tho uo of pure
Angora males produce animals
with dense Uceces of merchantable
mohair. Tho result has been suc-
coss and groat profit to him whilo
giving an impetus to an industry
that is destined to add material
prosperity to livo stock interests.
Lands that can not be profitably
utilized owing to their broken
surface and scant fertility aro suit-
able grounds for goat ranches.
Northwestern Arkansas and south-
west Missouri furnish a profitable
habitation for Uiofc animals. A few
pure males and 200 common Nan
nies will soon incrcaso to n largo
and valuable Hock uoat meat
as food is healthy and very en-
joyable. Tho cost of production is
light the increase rapid and tho
business properly followed pays
well. Col. Robt. Scott of Ky..
recently deceased: Polk Prince of
samo State Richard Petors of
Atlanta. Gii.. and C. P. Bailey of
Son Jose (Jul. have each lino (locks
of Angoras nnd have boon promi-
nent brooders of pure bred stock.
