Speaking of tho disagreement bo-
tweon the governor and tho board of
regents in regard to tho apportion-
ment of the school money a cor-cs-pondent
of tho Wichita Ileacon in
part lias this to say
Tho dispute had reached this stage
when the territorial campaign began.
Tho board und tho governor being re-
publican mutually agreed to postpone
hostilities until after tho election.
With this understanding the regents
slumbeicd somewhat not suspecting
that the governor would attempt to
apportion tho money in question
which was for the six" months ending
June 30. Governor liarncs however
sometimes takes time by ;tho forcloclc
and lu this Instance he took a double
hitch To the utter surprise of the re-
gents It was learned this wccit that
tho governor had apportioned tho
noncy last September. It was dis-
tributed as follows: Agricultural and
Mechanical College SI. 500 University
SU14 38; Edmond normal STSO; Alva
normal S750. total 3014.38 Since
then tho governor has advanced out of
the fund for tho last six months of
1893 52000 to tho Agricultural and
Mcchanicnl college and 81000 to the
Alva normal school.
Tho board of regents is determined
to havo what it claims is its rightful
share. Olio of tho mombcrs said this
week that tho apportionment would
not interfere with a legal decision in
tho dispute and that the regents wonld
not stop until cither the court bad
passed upon tho matter or the govern-
or receded from his position.
Death of n C 7ru In.
W. D. Irwin died at tho Central ho-
tel In Woodward at 0:30 p. in. tho 21st
gSoiao few weeks ago Mr. Irwin was
thrown from his horse while rounding
up cattle the horse fell on him and
the horn of the saddle struck him in
tho chest. Since that time ho hai had
a great deal of pain lu his chest and
littH been using opiates constantly to
relievo it. Last week he made a trip
to Guthrie and Kansas City aud when
he returned he stopped off at Curtis to
look after some cattlo. About ten
o'clotk in the forenoon of tho 21st Dr.
Workman received word that there
was a itmu dying at Curtis and to
corao as once. There was no train
leaving at that time so Superintend"
ent Dolan generously sent him down
in his special car which was standing
on the track here. On arriving he
found Mr Irivin in a comatose con-
dition ovidently from a too free use
of the opiates which he had constantly
witlt him. It 'b the doctor's opinion
that the pilu became so great that In
attempting to gain relief he took an
overdeso. never thinking of any dan-
ger that might result. All effor's to
revive htm failed so Dr. Workman
brought btm up to Woodward arriv-
ing here just b. fore 4 o'clock. Drs.
l'attoc and Mucgcr met hlin at the
train and assisted In taking him to tho
Central hotel where ho died at 0.30.
Mr. Irwin was an old settler and a
prominent cattlo man having a ranch
near Ft. Supply lie loireu a wife
three brothers' his mother and a sis-
ter Mrs Ratlin". The. remains were
taken to Guthrie on the 23d for Inter-
ment. -Woodward News.

In reply to a letter of inquiry the
Dawes commission explains the situa-
tion as to allotment of lands in the
Cherokee nation as follows:
"In response to your inquiry regard-
ing allotment of lands in the Chero-
kee nation wo would say that you are
evidently laboring undor a mistaken
Idea that each Cherokbe Indian will
bo entitled to 140 or 100 acres of land
when allotment li made.
"The secretary of tbe interior has
fixed 60 acres ai the maximum num.
ber to be selected In advance of allot
ment. This la unquestionably the
highest number of the best grade of
land that any single Cherokee will be
allowed to select. Tbe Curtis bill con-
template that allotments shall be
equal in value and in order thrt this
provision may be carried out the lands
will be appraised and the proportion
to which each individual Is entitled
will be equalized on the basis of value
"As to whether intermarried white
men in the Cherokee nation will be en-
titled to an allotment of land la a
question which we are not pre psrsd
to answer definitely at this time but
the matter will bo determined before
beginning allotment "
