The tribal laws of Indian Terri-
tory are to be repealed. At least
a bill is now pending in congress
with such an amendmeut. Col.
Win. Busby who is just back from

and II. 1 Robbins of this city
were given an opportunity to
suggest amendments to the inter-
ior department's bill for winding
up Indian Territory affairs and
through Congressman Curtis of
Kansas succeeded in getting an
amendment placed in the bill re-
pealing all tribal tax laws. This
does Hot only refer to the incorpor-
ated towns but to Indian Territory
as a whole. Senator Stewart
chairman of the committee agreed
to the amendment. Mr. Busby is
sure the bill will be enacted as
He is not so confident as to the
public building bill introduced by
Senator Fairbanks. There is but
little probability of its enactment.

these surveys have served as a
guide in the preparation of a recent
bulletin published by the Survey
which is entailed "A Gazetteer of
Indian Territory." In it is given
the location of every station vil

tory with the name of the atlas

Mr. Henry Gannett the author
of the bulletin has also written an
iulroductory chapter to the gazet-
The great body of the T.rr:tory
is divided among five Indian tribes.
They are the Cherokee whose res
ervation is in the northern part of
the Territory; the Creek in the
central part; the Seminole just
west of them; the Choctaw in the
southwest and the Chickasaw in
the southeast. Besides these there
are a number of small tribes that
have reservations grouped in the
northeast corner of the Territory.
On these reservations tne people
have developed a considerable de
gree of civilization and have been
lontr known as the Five Civilized
Tribes. Each tribe has its own
system of government wnicli is
patterned in many ways after our
State governments with a gover
nor a legislature and a judiciary
of its own. 'Until recently the
lands were held in common and
occupation eave all the title that
was needed. There was an abun
dance of good land for all and no
occasion for tht- clashing of in-
terests. Their cupidity having
been aroused by this condition of
things many while men settled 111
the Territory married Indian
wives and thereby acquired tribal
rights. Many squawuien thus ob
tained valuable coal lands timber
lands and farm lauds. Others fol-
lowed in their wake and settled
without permission until the whites
in Indian Territory in 1900 as
shown by the census returns out
uuuibeicd the Indians many times.
This situation is a perilous one for
the Indians as il is not ere lible
that white men in such overwhelm
ing numbers would long remain
suject to Indian laws and without
title to the lands which they were
occupying. The lands have there
fore been subhvided into town-
ships and sections preparatory to
allot ing them ' to the Indians in
severalty and breaking up their

Modern Way and How Grandma
Kept her Hands Beautiful
Reference has been made hereto-
fore to Lillian Russell's "Health
and Beauty Hints" which we are
finding very valuable. This week
Lil after complaining that "fewer
wouien than might be supposed
possess the requisite solicitude for
preserving and enhancing their
attractiveness goes to work to
tell you how to treat your hands.
We will suppose your "grabs" are
red and in that case never bathe
them in cold water. You should
use hot water and then oil 'em
Oil 'em well put on old mitts and
go to bed. While Lil does not
spec ifically recommend dishwate
in the connection we might ven
ture to assume that dishwater be
ing hot might profitably be used
to reduce the lobsterian hand to its
proper lily whiteness and flexibility
If we are not mistaken grandpa
told us once that grandma had the
most beautiful hands he ever saw.
Grandma used dishwater almost
exclusively and then secured the
proper flexibility by knitting socks
for a famiiy of eleven children and
braiding rus. Miss Russell also
recommends cold cream for the
society hanc but grandma n;ver
used it except in tea. In fact as
far as we are able to ascertain from
research into the past grandma
gave her hands little thought ex-
