The Chieftain does not under-
tale to disprove charges of bribery
against anyone until the case is
aiade ouf but the cry of bribery is
shandy one in certain circles jn

ef principal chief of the Cherokee
zation a certain element cried out
bribery and demanded an investi-
gation all of which proved to be
aothing but wind. Show us the
people who claim to have been

worthv of belief.

Any kind of an old number of peo

Investigations have been made
by the jury upon reported viola-

Curtis law relating to the excessive
holding of lands. It has been as-
serted time and time again by out-
side papers that thia part of the
law was a dead letter as far as the
officials were concerned. As a mat-
ter of fact the officials have been
working quietly but effectively for
a long time and their work is about
to show results in the return of in-
dictments. Then the most import-
ant will be picked out and taken
into court and the sections of the

a telegram. The missive announced
that his aged mother was dying in her
far away Georgia borne and that she
was praying for her sou's presence.
Mr. Hall was very much affected and
departed at once over the Valley road.

no later than yesterday he ad
dressed Mr. Stanley with the harsh
salutation of "hallo."
Sorry we are but we do not hold
Mr. Stanley altogether blameless.
He never intimated that be was
the relative of royalty. Had he
done so no person would have been
more ready to "tip the lid" or raise
the hat in fitting respect.
Today Mr. Stanley was sum

brother William A. Stanley of

Ea.lrrn Town. Have No Rfa.on to
Be AIiained of Their Numer-
The rapid growth of the cities of
New England and the Miedle Atlantic
stales is perhaps the most striking
revelation yet been made by the
twelfth decennial census. Of the 159
cities of the country having a popula-
tion of more than 25000 about 80
had made greater numerical gain
in the ten years just cloned than in
the ten years preceding. - Since it
goes without saying also that about
the same number grew faster than
the average 32.S per cent. it is In-
teresting to ascertain from a study of
the bulletin where these cities are
considered by sections. Such a study
affords an admirable test of urban
gTowth and reveals in a striking man-
ner the remarkable progress of the
northwestern part of the country
says the Boston Transcript.
Of the 11 cities in the South At-
lantic group of states only three grew
faster than the average for the coun-
try. These were Atlanta Norfolk
and Jacksonville. In the south cen-
tral region only 7 out of 18 grew
faster than the average. In the west-
ern group 6 out of J2 grew faster
than the average. In the north cen-
tral group comprising the states
north of the Ohio the old free states
with the addition of Missouri 22 citief
out of 48 made more than average
progress. With the country thus di-
vided into five great factions none of
the four so far mentioned shows a
group of cities in which more than
half were growing faster than the
averatre. The remaining section is the
North Atlantic; in it 42 out of 70 citiet
have crown faster than 32.5 per cent
In Conectieut all five of its cities ol
this trrade made a showing above the
average and this can be said of no
other state in the union except
Rhode Island in which all three did
the same thing. In New Jersey 7 out
of 10 cities were above the average;
in Pennsylvania there were 11 out of
18; in Maine 1 out of 1 Portland and
in Massachusetts 11 out of 20.
It should be borne in mind flint the
actual growth of the cities in the
north central region was faster due
to the presence of a few cities on the
great lakes but the nnmlwr of cities
to show this tendency was as already
indicated less than in the North At-
The stagnant cities are found in
three regions in eastern Nebraska
northern Michigan and at the head-
witers of the Hudson. Omnhn. Lin-
coln and Sioux City belong to the
firtt group; Saginaw and Hay City to
the second and Troy and Albany to
the third. As a general rule the cities
have grown faster in the regions of

est and most helpful character. Its market reports are correct and complete in
