no siu.'ehood legislat ion at the present session and it is
also stated that it will 1 single statehood when it comes.
Since the Supreme court has declared that passengers
riding on passes cannot collect indemnity from the rail
road- the newspaper fraternity can congratulate them

J. ilair .Sliocnl'elt has been reappointed Indian agent
at Union Agency and is also bedecked with the scalp of
Henry P. Kobbins the republican newspaper man at
Sout'i McAle-iter who printed things about him.
One of the strange things connectel with the muta-
tions of time in the Indian Territory is that so many
federal ollicials ret ire from otllce under tire and forget to
bring suit agaiiisr the newspapers that have so wantonly
defame 1 them.
The I'onapa;te report will probably go to the house
with or without Secretary Hitchcock's approval. Repre-
sent a.iive Stevens of Texas has set Ids heart on finding
out what the investigators learned about the federal of-
ficios in this country and to that end will push his reso-
ld. ion calling for all documents.
Judge Raymond now holding court at Sapulpa has
ordered attachments for the removal of all guardians o
minor children who have failed to file t lie property with-
in their care with the court. lie said each man guilty of
this c.Tonse would be lined one dollar and costs. The law-
provides that every person acting as a guardian of minors
shall report the ahiount and condition of the property in
his care within sixty days after his appointment and
give b'Uid for its proper disposal.
Political Activity of Officials Discouraged.
Replying to a query regarding the status of govern-
ment employes in political matters Post mast er-Ceneral
Payne in a letter dated February 24th says:
"Referring to your communication of the 20th inst.. I
inclose herewith copy of the rules governing civil service
employes. You will observe that it is not deemed proper
for employes of the government who are within the class
itied service to take an active part in political matters.
This would mean that they should not serve as delegates
to any political convention or to act on any political
Mr. Payne has all along drawn a sharp line between
those in the classilied or civil service and in the uncla.ssi-
tied .service. According to a former order postmasters
or others holding unclassified positions are merely pro-
hibited from using their offices to control political move-
ments from neglecting their duties or from causing pub-
lic scandal by political activity.
A person in the classified service has a right to vote as
he pleases and to express privately hh opinions on ail
political subjects but lie should take no active part in
political management or in political campaigns.
A Strong Factor.
The South McAlester papers are still discussing the de-
feat of Editor Robbins of the News in the postofllce con-
test and are inclined to view it as an additional blow to
what is termed the 'machine or court house ring.'' The
fact seems to have been overlooked that perhaps the
strongest element of strength in his tight in favor of Mr.
Noble was the hearty aggressive support Col. J. Rlair
Shoenfelt who has been in Washington for several weeks
and who took an active part in the matter. Colonel Sho-
enfelt is a close personal friend of Mr. Noble and feels
that he has not been fairly treated by the News and
thus had an unusual interest in the contest. When all
the facts are known it will probably develop that his ef-
forts constituted the most important factor in the success
of the appointee. Muskogee .Phoenix.

The lead and zinc deposits in the Cherokee nation are
so wonderful in character that when the ob tructive
measures of the interior department are removed a big
boom will begin according to a prediction of the State
Capital. This paper says: '"These are no exaggerated
statements. We have seen specimens of lead and zinc
ore from wells and hills near Vinita that would excite
the most stolid and make of them enthusiastic promot-
ers." Kansas City Journal.
