Ths Chickasaw Dslsgates
In Washington Very Unlike
Average Indian Delegation
Washington Jan. 31. Gov.
Douglas II. Johnston of the Chick-
asaw Nation Indian Territory and
a delegate composed of Messrs
Holmes Willis and Edward B.
Johnson are in Washington. They
were sent here by the Chickasaw
tribal government to consider with
the Interior Department and Con-
gress matters affecting the welfare
of the Chickasaws.
Gov. Johnston and his advis-
orf including Messrs Willis and
Johnson have shaped the policies
of the Chickasaw Nation for the
past seven years and they have at
all times in so acting been in har-
mony with the policies of the Unit-
ed States government in its work
of allotment and final division of
tribal properties. They were the
commissioners who made what is
known as the supplementary agree-
ment in 1902 providing for a final
settlement of tribal affairs in the
Chickasaw nation. Before effec-
tive the agreement had to be rati-
fied by a vote of the Chickasaw
people. Notwithstanding the ex
ertions by persons whose interests
were opposed to the tribe of oppo
sition of the bitterest character the
agreement was ratified by an over
. Gov.Johsston and his delegation
are particularly interested now in
securing the enrollment as citizens
of the nation of children born to
duly enrolled citiz.cns of the tribe
after the ratification of the supple-
mentary Agreement ot 1902. It
was provided that the rolls should
be closed at that time in order that
final division of tribal property
may be made but this was agreed
to only on the theory that there
would be no delay in closing tribal
affairs. More than two years have
elapsed and the work is not yel
consummated and in the meantime
tlie children referred to have been
born. There are ample lands and
money for them and it is expected
that there will be no opposition to
the proposition of the delegation to
make provisions for them. They
will also ask that a sufficient
amount of the moneys of the tribes
be appropriated and' made avail-
able for the payment of all out-
standing and unpaid school war-
rants of the tribe.
Gov. Johnston and his delegation
do not confirm the prevailing idea
of an Indiad delegation in Wash-
ington. They are more white
than Indian and are men of culture
and extensive property and busi-
ness interests. They will undoub-
tedly have much to do with the
future policies of whatever state
may include the lands of their
tribe after the affairs of the Chick-
asaw Nation pass into history.
Misfortuns and iM Link

with Charley Hunter.
Charley Hunter the hustling
town boomer met with a serious
misfortune a few nights age. To
begin with his entire family were
sick abed and he had been up
several nights waiting on them.
He arose Saturday night to tlx
the fire when a big blazing lump
of coal fell out of the stove striking
his bare foot. This sent him into
'.he air and when he full his knee
struck a big live coal making an
ugly burn. Then the rug and
carpet was ablaze and lie had much
to do to keep the house from burn-
ing down. lie has beou pretty
badly crippled up as a result of
But Charley's luck changed yes-
terday. He received good news
to the effect that he had been ap-
pointed as one of the thirty men
out of the Rough Riders' regiment
who are to serve as a mounted
guard of honor on inauguration
day in Washington. There were
izoo men in the regiment and out
of these Gov. Brodie of Oregon
selected thirty. Mr. Hunter
served his country with distinction
during the Spanish American war.
He is so delighted with the honor
conferred him that he has almost
forgotten his misfortunes.

They will be known as Mr. and
Mrs. Montgomery in this article.
Don't ask-any further questions.
A delightful social event was
pulled off the other night in one
of our fashionable homes by Mrs.
George Montgomery and husband.
It was a "literary evening" given
to about ten couples Arrange-
ments were also made for cards.
As the evening drew near Mrs
Montgomery spent some time in
the kitchen where a dainty little
repast began to take shape: The
day before the function poignant
regrets were received from several
of the pally. Some had the epi-
zootic and others were out of town
or unavoidably detained and
"regretted" etc etc.
On the day of the event a ter
rific cold snap settled down on the
town. Towards eventide Mr. Mont
gomery spent some time with the
stove doing all in his power to en-
courage it to unwonted activity.
When the requisite temperature
was attained he dressed and by 8
o'clock everything was ready for
the guests. Eight- forty came no
people; and then a carriage passed
the door but there was nothing
About nine o'clock Mr- and Mrs
Montgomery threw up the social
sponge and sat down to entertain
themselves. They took down
Bryant's "Library of Poetry and
Song" and for a pleasant hour or
so took turns reading favorite
selections. Then there was "con-
versation' ' for another hour. At
11 o'clock refreshments were
served. Tlu-iewasau abundance
of good things and everybody
took hold in earnest. At 12 the
f.-uests retired stating that they
had had a most delightful evening.
In the language of long ago "A
