What a Change of Admlnlstra
Hon Would Mean in the
Way of Patronage.
The Indian Territory correspond
ent of the Kansas City SUr says:
"Although Um people of Indian
Territory are not entitled ta a vote In
the approaching presidential election
. there la no state in the Union where
the people are more vitally affected
for a change of administration means
the distribution of so much patronage.
"The situation is doubly Interesting
because the Democratic plat form spe-
cifically provide for the appointment
of home men In all territories some
thing which has never been known in
"There are more good places at the
disposal of the administration in In
i dlau Territory than In the combined
I offices of tlie state and federal appolnt-
f meats in any one of a majority of the
i Western states. There are fifteen
I federal appointments in Indian Ter-
1 rltory tliat pay an annual salary of
($5000 each; twenty that pay 14000 and
twenty that pay 12300 to 13000. In
addition to these are the smaller ap-
"In the 15000 class aro the three
r members of Ute Dawes commission
1 tight federal Judges three memtwrs
of the citizenship court and school
superintendent. In the $4000 class
are four United States marshals four
I clerks of courts' four United States
' attorneys and four United States Jail-
era. In the Indian division are the
agent and inspector each at $4000
and two ruining trustees at the same
figure. In the 13000 and i'.'.&oo class
' there is a revenue Inspector who gets
3000. Kach of the four marshals
clerks and district attorneys have a
jlilel clerk who draws t25tio a year;
k the secretary to the Dawes cornmls-
) aiou gets 12511) the chief law cte.rk
2ooo and the disbursing offlcer an
erjual salary. There am seven town-
site commlsstrmers who draw 2.V)
each and the supervising engineer
"The heads of the different dcjwtrt-
nients average about ll.Wsj a year
and there kto fortyappoinf menta that
pay from l.joti to il M a year. This
Includes the twenty-three United
States commissioners who draw t:m
each. In additlo.i to all these there
are 15 employes on the Dawes com-
mission aiid fifty In the Indian offices
who draw average salaries of f 14mm).
"Besides alt these there Is much
.other appointive patronage. Kach
marshal ha about sliteon deputies at
salaries that range from f.ototf2M.
Kach clerk of a court has the apHint
cut of a chirk at each court town in
i his district the entire iinnilier
amounting to twenty-three ami these
' draw salaries of 113k) each. Kach of
the four Jailers Ins to have sixteen
guards and there has to be a constable
in each commissioner's court. Kach
of the Judges has a stenographer as
does eaeh nieinlcr of the citizenship
court and they draw salaneaof 1.2O01
tifl5oo. There is not one of these
ofilces that Is tilled by a vote of the
people. There are only six who are
under civil sen Ice.
"A change of administration Mere
' the president so disposed would mean
a clean sweep of the slate from top to
bottom. A great many of these ap-
pointees perhaps one-third are Demo-
crats but a president who wanted to
build a machine would not hesitate to
replace them with other Democrats
of his own choosing.
"Many of thn appointment are for
four jears and would probanly carry
the Incumbent up to statehood; but a
IHMnocrallc president and a iK-mo-cratic
cabinet could reap a harvest of
resignations In order that the) might
shake their own plum lues.

A story has been going Ute rounds
of the territorial press to the effect
that there would not be enough land
to allot all of the citizens of tb Cher-
okee Nation Including titousands of
Intermarried whites who have been
added to the rolls. There are about
5000000 acre of Cherokee land sub-
ject to allotment. It is ii together Im-

in the story wliateyer and had never

"Tltere will be Just about enough

close but we expect no trouble In

Says Platform is not In Keep-
ing With the Ideas of the
W. J. Bryan lias made trie follow-
ing statement relating to the Demo-
cratic platform adopted at 8t. Louis:
"The plank of Imperialism is posi-
tive strong and satisfactory to the en-
tire party and this question becomes
the paramount issue of the campaign.
The tariff Is good but It was made so
on a close vote In the committee and
largely against tlie opposition of Par-
ker's adlierents. The plank which was
voted down favored 'a wise conseTa-
tlve and businesslike' revision iide
'with due regard to e listing condi-
tions.' Tlie committee thought that
these qualifying words emasculated
the plank and left It so weak as to give
no hope to tariff reformers.
"The anti-trust plank Is a good one.
It demands tlie enforcement of the
criminal law against trusts; it de-
mands the abolition of rebates and
discriminations; and It demands tlie
withdrawal of Interstate commerce
privileges from trusts when once con-
'Ihe plank is Infinitely superior to
Um Republican plank and with a
president who desired to destroy tlie
trusts would be sufficient; but as this
trust plank was also substituted by
tlie full committee there Is reason to
fear that It may not be in keeping
with the ideas of tlie candidate.
"Tlie labor plank is all tliat could
be desired. It declares against gov-
ernment by Injunction; It favors arbi-
tration and the elgh.i hour day; and
denounces the methods that have been
ruswrted to in tlie Colorado strike but
as these planks were added in full com
mittee some uncertainty exists as to
the candidate's position."
