During tho Chicago Exposition our
country was In tho throes of the most

"The South was not situated finan-
cially to participate In tho exposition
by the erection of state buildings and
tho making of Stnto exhibits and tho
IK'oplo of that section did not feel
that they could afford to take advan-
tage of that opportunity to acquaint
themselves with what tho world there
exhibited. This Is not so however
today Almost every Southern Stnto
has Its Stato building and Its State
exhibit and thr people of that section

from witnessing tho exhibition at St.
Louis should feel a certain prldo In

of Individuals each of whom Insists

SUES DAWES COMMISSION.
Action Which Involves Every Contest
ed Allotment In Cherokee Nation.
' Vlnltn I. T. Attg. 22. There was
(lied In the district court of the
Northern district n suit against tho
' Dawes commimlon thnt Involves ev-
ery contested allotment In tho nation
on which the filing was made prior
to the closing of tho land office Octo-
ber 7 1903 nnd remaining closed un-
til Aug. 231904.
I The suit Is that of James Orr
guardian for a minor child against
the three members of tho Dawes com-
. mission. The petition states that the
child filed on nn allotment and that
more thnn nine months later Tom III-
bio filed a contest on the nllotment
claiming that he had a better right
I to it tuati mo en i id. I no law re-
.quires that after n tiling Is mndo nine
months must tlapso beforo n certlfl-
.eHte of allotment Is Issued In order
to glvo other parties tlmo to lllo pro
test if ttiey claim a right to tho sumo
land. The point In question Is whet ti-
er the time during which the land of-
fice was closed shall be considered a
part of the time the contests period
on previous allotments wns to run.
The ruling of the commission Is that
the time tho office was closed should
not bo counted and that nine months
must run while the land office was re-
ceiving filings nnd contests. This
seems to hnve also been the opinion of
the secrotnry of the Interior.
Of course there Is no provision for
such a contingency mndo In the
treaty. The plaintiffs claim that the
commission has no right to consider
n contest IIHur after the original fll
lng has stood for nine months with-
( nt contest no matter whether the
land office wns closed or not. They
nsk that a rentralnlnj order be made
to prevent the Dawes commission
from nllowlng Itlble to contest the
child's title to tho allotment which
is In the Ilartlcsvlllc oil district and
a very valuable one. They claim that
the Chickasaw and Choctaw land of
flees were closed temporarily though
only n few weeks and that the secre
tary and the commission ordered that
such time should not bo counted out
of tho nine months' contest period.
Tho case Is of great Interest in the
Cherokee Nation because in-ie arc
hundreds of similar cases and this Is
to be made a test. There was a great
boom In tho Hnrtlesvllle oil district
about tho time the filings were made
and as soon as the land olIU'j was
reopened there were a great many
ccntests filed on that account.
