No Decision Till
ACCORDING TO A
Result Thought to Hinge
Largely on Question of
A Washington dispatch declares
that tho contest over tho opening of
the Kiowa Comanche and Apache
reservation probably will not be set-
tled before next week. The argu-
ments of counsel were finished yes-
terday but Justlco Oradley announced
that he would not render hie decision
immediately as the case Involred
many important questions and he
wished to take It under advisement.
Officials of tho Intorlor department
Including Judge Thomas Ryan assist-
ant secretary and Judgo Vnndovonter
who conducted tho enso for tho gov
ernnK.it expect tho court to hold that
it has no jurisdiction nml that there-
fore the injunction will not bo granted.
Tho case of tho government rosts en-
tirely upon tho qaostlon of jurisdiction
and while Justlco Bradley did not
give expression to anything that could
be taken an an Indication of what his
decision 'would bo lawyors In tho court
room Interpreted somo of tho ques-
tions ho nBkod Judgo Springer Lono
Wolf's counsol as showing a decided
leaning towards tho contention of the
government. At adjournment how-
over Judgo Sprlngor seemed conn-
cent the Injunction would bo grantod.
Lone Wolf and Whko Buffalo woro
In court again yostorday. Thoy hard-
fy glanced from Judgo Springer while
he was spooking and soomed especi-
ally edified when ho spoke In his
loudest tones which at tlmos reached
the intensity of a roar. When Judge
Vandeventer who has a quioL digni-
fied manner of spoaking addressed
the court White Buffalo lost interest
and Lone A Volt fell asleep.
Judgo Vandeventer corapldted his
nrgument at the morning session with
the citation of two additional decis-
ions of the United Statos suprome
court supporting his argumont that In
dealing with Indian tribes tho domi-
nant Influence was tho legislative
branch of the government. Judgo
Sprlngor then addressed the court for
an hour. He Insisted that tho court
liad jurisdiction and declared that a
decision that congress alono "cad pow-
er to act for tho Indians -would estab-
lish a dangerous precedent. If tho
courts wero powerless to prevent the
government from disposing of Indian
lands to the Injury of tho Indians
then ho asserted tho Indians had no
rights the government was bound to
"Refuse this Injunction" he cried
"and Lone Wolf who is a Baptist
preacher must return to his people
and tell them that their land are to
1)0 takon from thorn that the Lord
giveth and the Lord talteth away."
"I thought you salu you could not
speak English" interposed Judgo
"Oh he knows a text or two nil
right enough" said tho Judge.
Judge Springer was asked by the
court to explain the status of Lono
Wolf In his trlbo and explain why tho
application for Injunction had been
made In his name. Tho Judgo replied
that Lone Wolf had been elootod chief
and that his position as proporty own-
er should kIvo him standing. To avoid
any technical objections to tho appll-
cation he amended It so as to Include
in addition to Lono Wolf all of tho
458 Indians who signed tho memorial
which will bo proaouted to the Presi-
dent asking that ho withhold his proc-
lamation opening tho reservation.
Justlco Bradley Is expected to an-
nounce hJb decision early next week.

An Unanswerable Showing
the Opinion of
It Is the opinion of well Informed
attorneys who hare examined the
brtsf Sled by Mr. John Colonic bear-
ing upon the Illegality o a United
States officer to hold two offices at
tkf same time la an unanswerable
showing ami that the appointment of
the clerk ot the supreme court as ter-
ritorial librarian alto If such a step
has been contemplated would be In
direct violation of the organic act and
tha laws of the United States. Mr.
Qoloble's brief In full Is here submit-
ted: "The supreme court of aald territory
hall appoint 'U own clerk who shall
hold his offlco si the pleasure or the
court for which he Is appointed." (Or-
ganic act section 8.)
The position Is both an "appoint-
ment" and an "office" by the express
term of the act.
The ntfttutea of the United Stat"
touching the appointment of clerku of
the United states supreme circuit and
district com is re practically the same
an the Hbor piuWaiutt of the organic
act. (It. 8 . V. 8. sections 877 619 and
It Is expressly letormlned by the su-
preme court of the United States that
the clerkship of the United States dis-
trict court Is an office and the clerk
nn officer. (Ex parte Iltnnen 18 Pet.
That the clerk of the supreme court
of Oklahoma holds an "appointment
under the United States." can not be
disputed ovon If such portion Is not an
"office" within the mo:t restricted
moaning of the term.
The of flee of territorial librarian Is
expressly created the term of office
fixed and manner of qualification pro-
scribed by the laws of Oklahoma Ter-
ritory. It Is an "office under the gov-
ernment of said territory." (Chapter
70 Stnt. Ok. 1898.)
Upon tho theory that the territorial
librarian is an "officer" under the gov.
eminent ot tho territory tho governor
exercises the power of his appointment
under sections 7 and 3 of the organic
act to the exclusion of the board of
directors created by section 899 stat-
utes of 1898.
Ono person may not hold the por-
tions of clerk of the supreme court of
the territory and territorial librarian
at tho same time.
" (Chap xxx.) And no person holding
a commission or appointment under the
United States except postmasters shall
ue h member of the legislative assem-
bly or shall hold any office under the
government of said territory." (Or-
ganic act. Sec. 8.)
Under a constitutional provision sim-
ilar to th above In Indiana it as
"The general rule is that where a
man accepts an office held under the
state he vacates another held under
the same sovereignty: but where a fed
eral etflre is held at the time of the ac-
ceptance of an office created by state
laws the former is not vacated by such
acceptance. The federal office may be
surrendered and the state office re-
tained but if the Incumbent elects to
hold tho former he must surrender the
latter." (Foltz v. Karlln. 106 Ind Ml.)
To like effect see the following:
Searcy v. Grow. It Cal 117; Crawford
v. Dunbar B2 Col.. 36: People v. Leon-
ard 73 Cnl. 380; McGregor v. Raich. 14
V. 4s 8. C. 30 Am. Deo. 381; Prlvett v
Tllckford 30 Kan.. K.
Tho California cases decide that one
holding o federal office can not even
be elected to a state oiflce during his
Incumbency of the former.
In Kentucky it la held that one elect-
ed Justice of the peace could not qualify
as such as long as he continued In the
office of postmaster. (Justices v. Har-
court'4 II. Mon. (Ky.) 499)
Following the masoning of the courts
In the above cited cases .and spplylng
It te the provision first above cited of
our organic act. it would appear that so
long as the clerk of the supreme court
continues in that capacity ha Is not
eligible even to appointment as terri-
torial librarian. If he would be librar-
ian he must first resign his clerkship:
hs can not qualify as librarian so long
as he continues as clerk otherwise he
would hold two offices at once and the
same time In contravention of the ex-
press terms of the organic act.
"Right to hold office not a natural
risht." (Meachetn rub Officers gee.
