A determined effort is being made
to prevent the opening of th
Kioww and Comanche country to
settlement this year and tho indi-
cations are that it may succeed.
Today preliminary proceedings
to u bitter contest against the
opening of tho country were insti-
tuted. Chief Lone Wolf of the
Kiowa Indians filed at the interior
department through his attoruoy
n protest against the opening of
the country charging that the
treaty of 1S92 with the Indians
which was not ratified by congress
until June G 1900 was procured
by fraud and never recoived tho
approval of even n rospectablo
minority of the Kiowa Comnnchc
and Apache tribe.
The petition also charges' that
nfter the original treaty was ap-
proved by the Indiaus it was
changed and altered by congress so
that practically none of the pro-
visions of the original treaty remained-
It is asserted that the treaty rati-
fied by congress has never been
submitted to tho members of the
tribes for ratification nnd that
their property is being illegally
and unlawfully taken away from
them and disposed of by the fed-
I nm reliably informed that if
the secretary refuses to concede to
the demands of the Iudians aud
direct a postponement iu the open-
ing of the country to settlement
that proceedings will be instituted
in the supremo court of the Dis-
trict of Columbia enjoining Secre
tary Hitchcock and other agents of
the department from in any way
interfering with or disposing of
the lauds of the Indians until the
constitutionality of the act of June
G 1900 can bo tested in the courts
Leading attorneys of the city
who are familiar with tho condi-
tions are unanimous in the opinion
that an injunction restraining Sec-
retary Hitchuock and his agents
from opening the country to set-
tlement pending n complete and
final adjudication of the case in
the courts cau unquestionably be

The many new buildings nv iu
course of construction will help
materially in Ardmore's future
prosperity. The lack of more bus-
iness houses has beeu a stumbling-
block to our progress during the
past twelve mouths. There is still
great need for mote but now that
a start hs been made we may
safely expect them.
Thehe is no man so poor but he
can help build up his town he
may uot have the dollars to spend
but he can have a will to push and
assist in some manner every effort
advanced to promote its greatness.
He can purely have a good word
for his town aud that spoken at
the right time to some who visit
therein may be worth a good deal
in the end.
It appears now that Lone Wolf
purposes to spike Secretary Hitoh-
cock's grand opening the wily
Kiowa is of tho opinion that his
people have been wrongfully dealt
with and intends seeking redress
from the Supremo Court. This
only ndds further complications
against the opening of tho Kiowa
aud Comanche pountry.

leases to cattlemen in tho lands
of which he was agent called
court at ten o'clock yesterday
The first movo was a motion
by tho defense- to quash the in-
dictment on tho ground that the
grand jury that returned the
indictinont was not properly
selected and empaneled as
provided by law. That there
was no legal evidence sub-
mitted to said grand jury on
which to have such au indict
meut. The argument of coun
sel in support of such grounds
disclosed tho fact that in the
first count tho agent of the cat
tlotnonwho paid him tho $1."00
was not nor did not nppoar be-
fore such jury and the question
then is if he did not appear
where did tho jury get the evi-
dence upon which they returned
The above is the outline of the
dofenso nnd last evening sib
poenaes were issued for several
members of the grand jury to
appear in court and state how
they found the indictment.

Nocona May 21. At 12 o'clccW
last night James Smith a citizen
of this place died from a dose of
strychnine taken with a suicidal
intent- After swallowing the
poisonous drug he told his wife
that he was tired of life and had
taken the drug with a view of end-
ing his days. Before his death Le
repeuted having taken it and beg-
ged that the family would use
every effort to save him but it was
too late to do nny good and he
died in paroxysms.
He was a man about 45 years of
age and leaves a wife and several
children two of the latter being
grown. He was a quiet iuoffensije
man and lived with his family in
town but owned a farm iu the
country near by.
This is the second suicide in
Nocona within the last eighteen
hours. Eat Carpenter blowing
