Official Paper of the City.
Vote for title!
Neal England of Afton is
preaching the gospel of ratification.
The statement that the oil com-
panies favor the treaty would draw
a wise smile from the Celtic phyei
egnomy of "Mike" Cudah;
TREATY OR THE CURTIS LAW?
Under the' above caption V. L.
Trott has issued a pri.Ud argu-
ment against the ratification of the
pending treaty which in a way .ia
unique. It ia an illogical master-
piece; a flimsy tissue of puerile
repetitions of exploded misrepre-
sentations. A complete analysis
of its weird assertions would oc
tupy time which they in no way
deserve. One of the most grotes-
que features is the assertion that
the treaty is favorable to -the oil
tompanies. No one knows better
than Mr. Trott that the oil leases
were granted under the provisions
of the Curtis Act and that the rat-
ification of the treaty will invali-
date those unholy instruments and
drive the oil pirates out of busi-
ness. The most bitter enemies ot
the treaty are the oil men and the
. only consistent campaign that is
being made against its ratification
is being conducted by their Bgents
with their money. A fact known
to all and ot which a man as con-
versant with Cherokee affairs as
Hr. Trott must certainly be cog-
nizant. It is this "beneficent"
Curtis Act which has thrown the
treasure vaults of the nation wide
open to these professional looters
which Mr. Tiott wildly appeals to
the Cherokees to accept in lieu tf
a measure which makes each citi-
zen steward of his own. Probably
the most flagrant misrepresenta-
tion in this most marvelous col-
lection is found iu the repetition
of the assertion that the treaty
grants each alternate section' of
land to the railroads. Mr. Trott
sould have employed bis time to
better advantage when he wrote
that paragraph by coming to this
office and receiving a check for $100
by adducing proof of his assertion.
Mr. Trott well knows that there is
a standing offer from this office to
pay the sum of $100 to anyone
who can fehow where the treaty
tontains any such illegal provi-
sion. The entire document 11
woven out of just such palpable
ierepresentalionH . No ore doubts
the sincerity of Mr. Trott's oppo
sition to the treaty. But it is an
apposition born cradled and nur
tured in prejudice. A prejudice
"irhich seeking gratification would
loudemn the Cherokees to a delay
in the settlement of ttuir affairs
mtil their estate 1 has dwindled
lway under the blighting touch of
the corrur tkr.iU who have grown
Trealtby at th ir expense.

His Sight Threatened.
"While picnicking last month my
11-year-old boy was poisoned by some
weed or plant" says VV. II. Dibble
of Sioux City Ia. "He rubbed the
poison off hi hmds into his eyes and
for a while we were afraid he would
lose his sight. Finally a neighbor
recommended DeWltt's Witch Hazel
Salve. The first application helped
him and in a few days lie was as well
as ever." For skin diseases cuts
burns scalds wounds Insect bites
uevviu's witcn uazei salve is sure
cure. Relieves piles at once. Beware
of counterfeits. A. W. Foreman dw
Views on Ambition and
"Dyspepsia" wrote Eugene" Field
''often incapacitates a man for endea-
vor and sometimes it extinguished the
tire of ambition." Field was a dyspep-
tic himself. Though a great man
despite this handicap he felt the
blighting effects of the. disease all his
life. Thousands suffer similarly
A weak tired or diseased stomach
can't perform the process of digestion.
It needs rest. . If forced to work it
will grow constantly weaker. If it
gets rest it will soon growst roner ngn 5 n.
.Such a preparation as Kodol Dyspep-
sia Cure will give it just such a rest.
Kodol Dyspepsia Cure dots the- stoni-
.if'i's work. Jt digests what you eat.
Don't diet. Dieting is neither more
p.or less than partial starvation. .Star-
vation never Ix-nctlttcd anyone. If
yju take Kodol Dyspepsia Cure you
need suiTer the pang-neither of indi-
gestion nor of starvation. -Equally
"ood for children.
"I consfdt r "Kodol Dyspepsia Cure tlio sn-
CJiorof any prt'pavntioii for the previntiou
mil euro of lysi)i.i" writes Mrs. C.vo. f..
Unburn Ante Jiruoswick Co. Ya. "Alout

oxcrutiutintf misery. 1 tried many remedies'
Im t pained only temporary relief until I used
