TOWN LOT PAYMENTS.
No Forfeitures Will Be Made Until
the Indian Authorities Take Ap-
propriate Steps to Have It
Done Interesting 'ILettera.
Some two months ago Sidney Sugg3
-as president of the Chamber of Com-
merce undertook to do what he could
toward doforrlng the payments duo
on town lots fromvIuly 1 to November
15. His efforts In that direction have
brought out somo correspondence
that Is of vital Interest to every In
corporatod town In Indian Territory.
The department hat no authority to
extend tho time of payments beyond
the time fixed by treaty but It seams
clear that no forfeiture will bo made
until tho authorities of the Chlcka-
suw and Choctaw nations have taken
"appropriate" steps to have a for-
feiture declared when payments have
not been made.
Wo publish below Lie letter from
the acting secretary to th Indian In-
spector and also tho letter from the
Indian Inspector to Sidney Suggs:

where he Is gathering data of the
townslto commissions an'd conferring
with other officials relative to Ihe
work of the townsltes In those na

ance are consuming. the attention of
the Inspector at this time. One is
the matter of appointment of 200
guardians for minors who Tmvo allot
ments In tho pine lands of tho Choctaw
Nation. This wholesale appointment!

other matter Is that of handling In-
sano persons. The Inspector wants
to know who has authority to declare
a person Insane that he may benefit '
from tho fund for the caro or insane

tho dlstrlcfjudgos should pass upir'
tho matter. !

arriving here. They state that th
Japanese are pressing close on tho
fortress. Very serious lighting took

030 inado several advance and ap-
peared determined to press a genoral
assault. On account of the severity

status and Intelligence of the people
Is a guaranteo that their story that
tho fortress is being hard pressed Is
true. Thero Is no doubt that thoro
was eerious fighting on tho 25. 20 and
27 and It Is highly probable that the
Japanese are lighting their way over

on the inner citadel and its outworks.
