SUPERVISOR OF SCHOOLS
STRIKES KEY NOTE.
"A Radical Change Desired in Justice
.to the Chickasaw Children Who
Are Being Sacrificed to Flnan- '
clal and Political Purposes."
I had no Uoa when I penned my
:flrst article for the Ardmoreito on
itho Chickasaw schools and the ir.nn-
agomont of their school fund In tho
Interest of the fow against tho wants
of tho many that It would produce
such a storm as would prompt a re-
ply from Supervisor of School Heck
to some chap on the Tishomingo Cap-
ital who inthe language of Mr.
Beck uses a favorite weapon In the
discussion of this question "A I'ea
This "Pea Shooter" must bo tho
samo "chnpplo" who In his "pea shoot-
ing" style stated that Do Ijincy was
probably Ignorant of his subject be-
cause ho made certain comparisons
that did not meet with tho "Pea
.Shooter's" approval but which are as
truo as holy writ. "That part of tho
I'ea Shooter's article In which he re-
fore to Supervisor Heck as tho "man
sont here to taku (ho Chlcknsaw
schools away from them and run
them according to his own notions"
is just as true as any other state-
ment ho has made on tho question of
'Chickasaw schools moro particularly
tho ono In wlilch ho jtrlcs to make
tho voters bellovo that Dick McLIsh
would tako from his own peoplo the
control of their schools and turn them
over to carpet baggers and at the
samo tlmo tako from them tho $8 or
'$10 per month paid for children's
As a matter of truth Dick McLIsh
has made his declaration on these
subjects -so plain that no ono other
than a genuine "pea shcotor" can
Supervisor of Schools Heck realizes
that tho school system of tho Chtck-
asaw nation nnd tho management of
its finances nro In a "deplorablo con-
dition" and Is anxious to do nil in his
power to lend an honest helping hand
toward tho education of tho Chicka-
saw youth. As nn honest observing
man ho realizes that this can never
ibo accomplished when to quote his
own language In tho government re-
port "somo radical chnngo Is emi-
nently desirable In Justice to the chil-
dren who aro being isacrlflced to
financial and political purposes for at
a far less expense than nt present
all tho children of tho nation citizen
and non-citizen could bo fnrnlshed
with educational advantages far su-
porior to those they now iosscss."
Tho proper education of tho children
is something which appeals to tho
Heart of every honest mnn. No won-
der that Supervisor Heck In his re-
port uses such strong language or
that Dick McLIsh In his lcttor of ac-
ceptance said: "Tho efficiency of our
schools and nn honest expennlturo of
our school fund appeals to tho heart
nnd conscience of ovory citizen Inns-
much hh It means moro ifor tho fn-
turo of our Httlo ones than enn bo
measured In words" Not ono word
can any one only tho Tea Shooter"
of tho Tishomingo Nowb and Capital
find In that letter of acceptance about
"his willingness to tako away from
tho Chickasaw children tho 1(10 per
month allowed for their support whllo
nt .school." On tho contrary ho says
"I favor allowing each Chickasaw
child of proper ago attending school
his or hor shnro of tho school monoy
and I boliovo that for tho amount an-
nually expended our schools should
bo tho equal of tho best anywhero."
In tho minds cf honest right-thinking
men thoro is no room for any differ-
ence on this subject. Supervisor
Bock In his government report says
In substance that Uio mnnagomcnt of
tho Chickasaw schools aro bolng sac-
rificed "to financial and political pur-
poses." So does Dick McLIsh nna
ovory other honest Chickasaw voter
In tho Chickasaw nation reallzo ful-
ly that not only tho schools but ev-
ery other depart mant of tho present
system of government In tho Chicka-
saw nation Is being offered up ns a
sacrlfico on tho samo altar. "Sacri-
ficed to financial and political pur-
poses" seems to bo tho underlying
principle which governs every movo
In tho mnko up of tho Johnstonlan
school system ns well as In every-
thing olso relating to tho present man-
ner of manipulating things. It has
full sway In tho school system It had
full swajr In the Man.??.0!11! McMurray.
and Cornish deal; It will havo full
sway all tho way down tho lino till
tho finish. All that U roqulrod by
the ones on tho inside Is th6 strict
application of tho old rule "Addition
division and sllenco." DE LANCV.

St. IxmiIs July 2. Tho tnlk In tho
Interest of Grover Cleveland for tho
presidency constitutes the most promi-
nent feature of tho anto-convcntlon
gossip heard today and tho publica-
tion hero of a Washington dispatch
quoting John It. McLean of Ohio In
advocacy of tab ox-prcsldent's nomi-
nation hns added somewhat to tho
volume of tho prediction of Clove-
land's nomination. Thoro Is no defl-
nlto movement dtscurnlblc ns yet In
Cleveland's Interest. Tho discus-

slon Is confined to politicians other
than delegates and with reference to
Cleveland's nomination these arc di-
vided Into two cTassos those who fa-
vor him and taoso wlio fear him.
In a general way the Enstorn arriv-
als aro favorahlo on the ground that
Cleveland can carry tho Eastern
states such ns Now York which thoy
say no ether man can enrry. It Is as-
serted that a strong Influence among
tho business Interests Is being or-
ganized In his Interest.
