The grand Jury whon it take up the
Investigation at Muskggoe of Indian
territory scandals rofgbt bogln with
the expense account of tho Dawea com-
mission. This is r little matter which
amounted only to $278.922 48 last
year and is therefore trivial-Jnm-parisan
with the gigantic land and

which are now passing under tho con-

Mr. Folk whim he has been unable to
convict upon more serious ohargp.
has sometimes found H ettBy to bring
a rascal to Jim Ice by trying him for
Mine minor offense the reason being
that a defendant occupied with n big
graft or fraud invariably neglects to
cover his tracks in little matters.
It woreld of course be rank libel to
accuse any member oi the Dawes com-1
ralBSion who Is Invoiveu in lanu aeais
amounting to hundreds of thousands of
dollars with padding his expense ac
count or stealing a two-cent stamp
from the government; yet neverthe-
less there may be censurable inad err
ences on tho part of some subaltern
in confounding prlvato and public x
pondlturos. To illustrate: The en
tiro Dawos commission. It 1b nllep'.
upendB more tlmo and thought on ut
fairs of loon companies than upon Its
official duties. As business men the
members arc charged with trying to
got hands on tho land and monoyj
which a officials of tho government
thoy aro sworn to protect from .ho
greed of prlvato Individuals. These
companies and tho commission there-
fore deal with tho same subject mat-
ters although it Is truo. for abso
lutoly dtfforent purposes. Tho head-
quarters of all concorns are In the
same cities and often in the ?umo
bulldlnKS. So those allied though con
flicting businesses might possibly con-
fnso thnlr sonarato accounts.
Mr. Blxby and his associates as
commissioners roport tho Item of sal-
arleafor.clorkB and employes last year
at $182975.42. Aro thoy suro that

Thoro alro le an item In flast yoar"s
account of $10791.27 for mlloag anil

of course who rldos on afallroad pass
would draw monoy fromT the govern

Regular City Council Meeting Failed
The mayor and city cjork met lat

ter a-fow momonts of waiting adjouru-

No provisions to bury tho. doad. No

districts. No home for tho Indigent.
No vote for tho citizen and no voice'
