Oklahoma City. Julv 31.. 3 D. m. At
this hour the Democratic territorial
convention is slowly assembling after
two days of furious milling of the
Jacobs and Sipes forces in the contest
for national committeeman and the
'congressional contebt is almost lost
sight of. Although the same combis
nations are at work except a few
counter that did business at El Reno
The Logan county delegation heems
to be the pivotal point but their lines
cannot be broken and it stands pat for
Captuiu Taylor for national comm.ttee-man.
The territorial central committee
has just adjourned and failed to make
the usual recommendations for the
temporary organization and ihe
fight will open right on the
floor of the convention. L. P. Ros
seems to have a strong pull for the
congressional nominatijn. His friends
claim 104 votes on the first ballot.
R. B. Forrest claims 00 votes on the
first ballot. He refuses to enter a
joint convention. Ho wants a Demo-
cratic nomination and a Populist en-
dorsement although the central com
mittee recommended that a joint con-
vention be held and that a two-thirds
vote be required to nominate
Tho convention will not get to busi
ness before 4 p. m. The Logan coun-
ty delegation held a caucus at 1 p. m.
and elected A. G. O. Biorer chairman
of the delegation. Joseph Wisby was
placed on the credentials committee;
W. B. Herod on the committee on per
manent organization and order of
business; L. G. Niblack on the com-
mittee on resolutions. H. H. Hagan
was made chairman for Logan county.
It was decided to divide the vote of
the delegation giving sis votes to
Among the Populists Cromwell of
Enid seems to be in the lead for the
nomination while Neff is showing
some strength. As yet there is but
little Callahan talk. Wm. Cross is
gingering up and making a campaign
but his cause seems hopeless.

El Reno July 31. The unusual fea-
ture of the Kiowa and Comauche
country opening is the reservation of
a tract of 480.000 acres. This tract of
land promises to play several impor-
tant parts in tho near future ot tho
In former openings no such reserva-
tion was made and it has been a
mystery why it was made in this case.
The provision for i in the bill carae as
a surprise to the prospective settlers.
The most common belief is that it was
set aside to favor the cattle interests
which have hitherto enjoyed pasturage
in that country.
Under the bill the Indians are per-
mitted to take each 100 acres and a
reservation of 180000 acres in a body
is to be made for them. Lately the
Indians have expressed dissatisfaction
with this plan and have started an
agitation for doing away with the
480 000 acre reservation and adding it
to each of their individual allotments.
This would be fatal to the prospective
settler's chance for an extra good farm
and it would also necessitate new leg-
islation on tho whole matter in the
next congress causing delay aud a big
tight lor tnose unsresiea in iuu set-
tler's chatcisfora farm would bit-
terly oppose this Indian scheme. The
Indians believe and not without
cause that if a 480000 acre tract is
segregated it will not be many years
before congress will be prevailed upou
to open that for white settlement too
It is coming out here that the In-
filudinc of this provision in the bill
was at tho wish of Senator Piatt of
Conneticut who takes a foremost in-
terest in Indian affairs and that he
had it set aside with a purpose which
he has not generally devulged his
supposed purpose balng to provide
lands for landless Indians. There are
hundreds of these Indians scattered
about over the country several hun-
dred in Oklahoma and Indian Torrid
tory. They have no land allotted to
them and unlesb some such provision
as the one Piatt proposes is made they
will novel have. If this is true of
Senator Piatt the reservation will be
allotted from time to time to Indians
from all over the nation.
But at present the matter of loca-
tion of this big body of land is very
important to the people who expect
to make a race for a home. These will
gathtir in the Chickasaw nation in the
Oklahoma counties on tho north and
in Texas on the south. If the Indians
arc permitted to choose this tract of
land they may locate it on the north
side of tho reBevatlon which would be
extremely bad for the Oklahoma con-
tingent which will go into the new
country from that direction. If the
land should bo chosen on tho south
the Texas contingent would suffer.
The chances are that for thiB reasan
Influences will be brought to bear on
the deDartment to have tho tract oc
cupy a central position in order to
give everybody a chance.
The Mountain View Progress says:
The Klowes and Comanches are not
pleased with the Idea of tho white
man taking their land. They would
prefer to hold the reservation In com-
mon and receive .their semiannual
payments of grass money Tho reser
vation contains upwards of 3000000
of land and 2965 Indians within its
barders have been receiving tho pro-
ceeds of pasture land leased to cattle
men. Many of tnem have picked out

on a small 6cale or leased them to
white men. Now that the opening of

the country makes it necessary for
them to select their allotments and
remaining land opened for settlement
to whites the Indians Jaro making a
roar and many of them dec are that
they will not select their allotments.
Many years ago when the govern-
ment commenced leasing tho laud for
grazing purposes ana giving uie pro-
ceeds to the Indians some of them re-
fused to take tho money thinking by
so doing they were selling their rights
to the land.
Some of tho ghost dancer6 led by

they would not take their allotments
but havo agreed among themselves
that the first one who breaks his
pledge is to be killed. The ghost dan-
cers are a class of Indians who refuse
