Now is tho timo for the demo-
crats of the territory to assert their
rights and elect a national com-

ted to imperialism and neither
party can now recede irom the po-

day before the American people
aro again at peace with the world.
The people of tho Cherokee na-
tion have about settled down to
the idea that allotment and indi-
vidual land titles is a long way in
the future. The hope of an early
settlement of present conditions
has about been abandoned. It
will take timo and the peoplo
might ns well make up their minds
to bo pationt.
If unrestricted titles to town
property could bo had in Vinita
the town would double Its present
population In one year. Any

side the territory havo their eycB

made they will pour Into this
country at an unheard-of rato.

perhaps by the right of discovery.

Col. Frank C. Churchill Indian
revenue inspector for the Chero-
kee nation is cooling his heels in

pending the decision of Judgo Gill
in the Rogers injunction case.
That decision will about settle the
question as to whether any more
Cherokee revenues are to be col
lected or not and whether Col.
Churchill's services will be longer
needed. Meanwhile the Cbero-
kees are building no new vaults to
hold tho influx of tribal revenues.

sive to the law-abiding peoplo of
the town and a blot on the city's
morals. It has no reason for ex-
istence and it should be dealt with
summarily. The closing up of
these dives was a misnomer and
the people know it. Whatever

Literary Note From The Century Co.
The August Century 1b out of
print as a result of the popular
interest in Miss Runkle's historic
al romance "The Helmet of Na
varre" which begins in this
number. As a rule the critics
hesitato to pronounce judgment
upon a novel when only one in-
stalment of it has appeared; but in
this case an exception has been
made Mid a chorus of praise has
greeted the new story.
Not a Whitewashes
Newspaperdom a journal pub-
lished solely in the interest of those
who make newspapers credits the
following to an unknown exchange:
"The editor is not a wbltewasher
by trade and his pencil and type
were not bought for the boJo pur-
pose of covering up scandal of
making good reputations for bad
and unworthy peoplo. He ia not
u roan to be behind to cover up
scandal and dirt as we have a
man to whiten our blackened
walU. t this was tho true mis-
sion of tho journalist what an ar-
ray of brushes and wlinamount
o whitewash he would need.

Next Thursday will bo a gala day at tho Miami Chautauqua.
Hon. Webster Davis of Kansas City will deliver his lecture on the
"Boers of South Africa" at 2 o'clock in tho afternoon. Ho is ono of
the moat famous orators in the United States. At the domocratio na-
tional convention at Kansas City he electrified that vast audience In a
half-hour speech that was simply wonderful in magnetic eloquonce.
The opportunity of hearing a man liko Davis does not come often in a
whole lifetime and it will be well worth a trip to Miami noxt Thurs-
day. Rov.M.L. Stewart of Carthage was hero yesterday arranging for

MASTER IN CHANCERY
Files Report in the Case
Nichols vs. Foreman.
A. B Nichols filed a bill in
equity asking to rescind a contract
of purchase for the A. W. Fore-
man drug stock and fixtures to se-
euro tho payment back to him of
$700 which he had advanced on
the stock as a part payment.
Nichols alleged fraud and misrep-
resentation on the part of Fore-
man in the making ol the trade.
Foreman answered and denied
fraud and misrepresentation and
averred that the 8700 was to he a
forfeit in the event the trade fell
through on the part of Nichols
and averred that he made a fair
and square contract ot sale with
Nichols at what the goods cost him
less the freight. Foreman also by
way oi cross bill in bis answer
asked the court to decree him a
decree of specific performance
against Nichols compelling him to
takn the stock and fixtures and to
put up tbs security agreed upon.
The matter was referred to the
Master in Chancery for the north-
ern district of the Indian Territory
Luman F. Parker jr. and proof
was taken before him and he was
directed to make a finding of law
and of fact for tho court. The
Master finds in his report that the
plaintiff and defendant entered in-
to a valid executory agreement for
the transfer of this drug stock and
fixtures the terms of which were
that the plaintiff Nichols agreed
to purchase tho stock of goods
which the defendant Foreman
then had in bis drug store known
sb the drug stock including the
fixtures soda fountain and etc.
at what the samo had cost the de-
fendant less the freight. That
the 8700 paid by Nichols was paid
aa a part payment on the stock
and was not put up as forfeit or
earnest money. That the plain-
tiff made the first breach in the
contract without any legal excuse
therefor. That there is an entire
absence of fraud or declt upon the
part of the defendant which would
vitiate this contract or entitle
plaintiff to a rescission. That the
allegations in the complaint with
reference to fraud misrepresenta-
tions and warrants on the part of
the dofendant have not been sus-
tained by the proof. That if there
has been any misunderstanding or
misapprehension on the part of
the plaintiff it ia directly traceable
to his own negleot and omission to
properly inform himself as the
means so to do were oocessable
and every opportunity was afford-
ed. That defendant did not de-
liver tho possession of the drug
stock and fixtures to the plaintiff
as claimed by the plaintiff in his
complaint That tho bargain was
a fair one and toe stocK was worth
what the plaintiff agreed to give.
That defendant failed to prove
that he suffered any legal damages
That the allegation in tho com
plaint as to the insolvency of the
defendant is not sustained by tup
proof. That thero is no equity In
plaintifi'acase and tho same should
be dismissed and plaintiff rele
gated to bis action at law which
aflords a romedy in every way ad
equate and complete. That this
couit is without jurisdiction to
proceed further and should dismiss
tbeJ)l without prejudice. That
the cross compjaint of tho defend
ant should also ho dismissed for
tljp want of equity lo'e'ustajn ft
WEBSTER DAVIS .
to whether he will really be there.
To mako a long story short the
Master finds that a court of equity
baa no jurisdiction under tho
pleadings and perhaps to hear and
determine this action but that the
plaintiff must resort to this rem
edy by an action at law. If the
court sustains the report of the
Master the costs which aro heavy
will fall upon tho plaintiff.

Writes An Article on Early
The constitution of the Cherokeo
nation was adopted in 1830 and I
quote the following admirable
provisions of it as being worthy of
incorporation into tho constitution
of any government:
"No person who denies the be
ing of a God or a future state of
reward and punishment shall bold
any office in the civil department
of this nation."
"The free exefcis'e of religious
worship and serving God without
distinction shall forever bo qn
joyed within the limits of thio na
tion provided: that this liberty of
conscience shall not bo so con-
strued as to excuse acts of licen-
tiousness or justify practices In-
consistent with the peace or safety
of this nation." x
"Religion morality and knowl-
edge being necessary to good gov-
ernment the preservation of liber-
ty and tho happiness of mankind
schools ind the means of educa-
tion ahail forever be encouraged
in this nation."
Below are the naracB of those
who in convention signed this
constitution all of whom are now
dead but who have children and
grand children who are active in
the affairs of the Cherokee nation:

the national convention."

MUST WAIT FOR TITLES.
No Federal Jails Till Titles
to Lots Can be Had.
Tenntlvo plans aro pow being
preparedat tho department of
justice for tho construction of
tbreo federal jails' in Indian Ter
rltory. In 1897 congress author-
ized tho construction of throo
federal jails in tho territory and
left tho location optional with tho
attorney general. At the samo
tlmonn aopropriation of 860000
was made. Alter much delay
caused by a bittor contest wagod
among prominent peoplo of the
territory for the selection of their
respective towns as tho proper
location for jails Attorney
General Griggs finally designated
Muskogee South McAlester and
Ardmore as the most central and
satisfactory locations. Thi? fight
was particularly bittor between
the towns of Wagonor and Musko-
gee both of which were seeking
to securo every advantage which
could be used as an argument for
the location of the capital of the
territory whon a territorial form
of government is finally establish-
ed. Becauso ol its control loca-
tion and excess of court business
ovor .Wagoper Muskogee was
Since that timo the government
has been unable to acquire titles
to property in the towns of Mus-
kogee South McAlester and Ard-
more owing to tho unsettled state
ol affairs existing. Tho federal
statutes specifically provide that
no federal building shall be erect-
ed upon ground the titlo to which
is not vested in the United Slates.
As no valid titles to siteB could bo
procured the construction of theso
jails were postponed. Recently
communications havebeon received
from Muskogee South McAlester
and Ardmore announcing that the
town site commissioners have so
far concluded their work as to per-
mit of the appraisement and
ealo of jail sites in the
near future Owing to the poor
jail facilities now existing tho
department of justice ia anxious
to expedito the construction of
now jails as rapidly as possible.
The plans will be prepared by the
time the appraisement and sale of
the property is concluded and
bids will be called for as soon as
the department of justice is in-
formed by its district attorneys
that titles to the sites have been
According to tho act of congress
tho amount to be expended nn
each jail waB left discretionary
with the attorney general. The
860000 appropriated can be divid-
ed between the three towns as
Attorney General Griggs .nay
deem best for the public service.
As tho number of arrests and con-
finements in jail are much greater
in the northern than injtlie mid-
dle and in the southern districts
the probabilities are that the Jail
constructed at Muskogee will be
considerably larger than tlioao at
South McAlester and Ardmore.
In other words the appropriations
will bo divided in proportion to
the demanu for jail facilities in
three districts. This will prob-
ably mean that Muskogee will
receive 825000 and South Mc-
Aleater and Ardmore 817600
The plana now being prepared
contemplate the construction of
Stone jails with offices in tho
front end cages extending baok in
the rear. They will be so arrang-
ed if it is found they are insuffi-
cient to meet the demands Addi-
tions can be added from time to
time in the rear thus increasing
(he number of polls.
Last winter the attorney gonor-
al asked congress to increase tho
appropriation to 8120000 but
Chairman Cannon of the approp
riation committeo of tho bouso
rofused the request stating that
tho appropriation authorized threS
years previous had not been used
and that if whon that waB
exhausted 1b was found that raoro
money was necessary It would bo
'forthcoming. It is upon this
statement that plans for tho jails
aro boing prepared so as to admit
of additions in tho rear if they
are found necosBary. Waahington

TO MISS THE
a world power.
More Glorious Than All Tho
Empires of Earth.
For raoro than a century this
nation has been a world power
For ten decados it has boon tho
most potent Influenco in tho
world. Not only h.u it been a
world powor but it has done moro
to affect tho politics of tho human
race than all othor nations com-
bined. Becauso our declaration of
independence was promulgated
others hnvo been promulgated.
Becauso tho patriots of 1776 fought
for liberty others have fought for
it; becauso our constitution was
adopted othors havo been adopted.
Tho growth of the principlo of self
government planted on American
soil has boon tho oversbading
political . fact of tho ninteonth
century. It has made this nation
conspiccous among the nations of
the earth and has given it a placo
in history such as no othor nation
ever enjoyed. Nothing has beon
ablo to check tho onward march of
thiB idea. I am not willing that
this nation shall cast asido the
omnipotent weapon of truth to
sieze again tho weapons of physical
warfare. I would not exchange
the glory of this republic for tho
glory of all tho empires that havo
risen and fallen sinco time began.
