JAPAN'S GREAT
VICTORY
FOUGHT FOR NATIONAL EXIS.
TENCE AND GOT IT.
Has Secured a Position Among the Na-
tlons of the Earth Which Money
Could Never Buy Has Secur-
ed Much Good to Follow.
New York. Aug. 31. That Japan baa
achieved all she fought for and tho
question of Indemnity was of minor
Importance compared to tho establish-
ment of her position among tho na-
tion and other advantages gained was
tho pinion of Baron Kanek!o tho
Japanese emperor's financial agent In
thl- country expressed tonight after
he had received dispatches from Ports-
mouth confirming the published re-
ports of peace.
' Naturally" said Haron Kanoko "1
cm quite pleased. Japan has achieved
much. True wo received no indemnity
but compared with what we have
gained the money matter becomes ot
secondary Importance. Tho ponce of
the world Is dear to Japan. She has
achieved so much that I was not sur-
prised that our envoys waived the
mere question of mouey when It stood
between peace and war.
"We fought for the national exist
ence ot Japan. We have secured it
Our petition In Sakhalin lost years
ago through diplomacy has been re-
f-Mabllslicd again at fifty degrees
north lntltlude its former boundary.
wo are again possessed of the fisher
ics through tho Behrlng sea. Wc have
Port Arthur again rightfully ours. Wc
have the railways. In many ways wo
have gained ranch. We have shown tho
world that the pagan treatment of
prisoners is as Immune as that of
Christian nations we have shown
that Japan is entitled to be regarded
as one of the powers to a seat at the
table In the councils of nations all
this Is of greater Importance to us
than indemnity. Money could not buy
us any one of these. Why therefore
should wo permit money to stand in
the way? We have not nor did I
think our envoys would. There may
bo home disappointment at home but
I am sure that with the spartan for-
bearance that hal always characterlz-id
our people we will look at it. right.'
Six-uldiiK of Jir.nuit buuut. ihr
baron said Japan .was well able to
meet the expenses incident to the clos-
ing of the war and the withdrawal of
her troops from the far east. She had
$30000000 in Germany and a like sum
both In Eirrland and In the United
States as yet untouched. Her war
taxes would he said talce caro of the
national war loans Thero might be
ho admitted some disappointment in
Japan because no Indemnity was paid
but ho thought the Japanese people re
garded their victory as n grand one
and would rIvc tho money question
but llttlo thought.
"Then too" continued the baron
"tho history of nations shows that a
period ot prosperity follows a war. It
was so with Japan after tho Chinese
war. It was so with Germany and
France and It was so here follow
lng tho Spanish war. In fact after the
Chinese war our business trebled.
As to any clash between tho Japan
rso and the United States for commcr
clal supremacy In the far cast Baron
kaneko declared such n thing Impo
sTol Asldo from the friendship ot tho
two nations he said the trade rela
tlons were naturally reciprocal. Each
possessed what the other hart not and
there could no no competition.
"As to our policy as to China" said
he "Japan will never agree to a diS'
membennent of China. Our Interests
there nro Identical with those of this
country and number of European na
tlons. "Wo will preserve the Hay open
ooor policy.

vln tho Washita valley and Its present
Vjllroad facilities with prospects for
an early addition ot direct coal field

future of tho place that Is moat at

News reached here today from Ayles

WONDERFUL WASHITA 'VALLEY.
Numerous Inquiries are Pouring In on
the Davis Commercial Club.
Davis I. T.. Sept. t. (Special.) -Tho
Davis Commercial club Is hi re-
ceipt of numerous Inquiries about the
Chickasaw nation and more especially
tho Washita valley. Hcports have
gone out which show the agricultural
wealth of-thls fertile valley and men
all over the old stntes are asking the
price of lands whether or not good
titles can be had If thero are any
schools and churches In this part of
the country. Some of tho letters show
how Ignornnt many people nro about
the conditions existing In tho Chicka-
saw nation. Tho secretary has pre-
pared a general letter answering prac-
tically all of tho questions asked.
The great Washita valley Is Just
awakening to the fact thnt she Is being
watched by men who hope to acquire
these lands at reasonable prices when
titles can be had. Men with sufficient
money to buy a smnll tract for their
own use nro the men this country
most need. Speculators havo already
gotten hold of thousands of acres of
this land filed upon by citizens whose
restrictions are removed under the
Act of Congress approved Fob. 2lst
100.1. Thero arc white persons who
have married Into- the Choctaw and
Chickasaw nations and aro called
"Intermarried Citizens." Such citizens
numbered over four thousand and It
Is safe to say that ninety per cent of
this class have already sold their
lands to speculators.
The peojilo of Davis have decided to
send out literature giving full Informa-
tion as to how to get a home In this
beautiful country and those who write
tho Commercial club will receive such
Information promptly.
Conditions In the Indian Territory
are soon to be changed entirely and
prospective settlers will find this fer
tile valley a field for safe and profitable
Investment. Tho Davis Commercial
club Is to be congratulated upon Its ef-
forts In this direction. They send In-
formation frio of cost.

Muskogee. I. T. Sept. 1. (Special.)
The committee on tho capital loca-
tion for the proposed state nf Sequo-
yah has recommended Ft. Gibson for
the capltnl for six years at the expir-
ation of which time tho location may
be changed by the legislature upon

other towns considered Tulsa Eufau-
la Tahlequoh and Ada. There was a
stiff fight In tho constitution and elev-
en ballets were taken.
Tho Muskogeo contlncn. voted for
Eufaula on every ballot until all others
had agreed upon Ft. Gibson when the
Muskogee votes went for Ft Gibson.
Tho representatives of Ft. Gibson
signed an agreement to pay for the
grading and building of all necessary
state buildings free of coat to tho
slnto. No other towns ngreed to this.
Ft. Gibson Is twelve miles from Wat?
oner twenty miles from Tahlequah
and ten miles from Muskogee. It has
two railroads and a trolly line con-
necting it with four others. It is an
old government fort at tho confluence

its Former Location.
Duncan 1. T Sept. L (Special.)
Gilbert & Bond of this city yesterday
afternoon received notice from Jnige
uicKerson that tho order of removal
against tho postmaster at Cornish had
been granted. This order was issued
to compel that official to return the
ofilco at Cornish to Its former loca-
tion In "old town.' It will be remem-
bered that such nn order was Issued
by Judge Dlckerson several days ago
but before It could ho enforced tho
postmaster appeared before Judge
Dlckerson and induced him to Issue a
temporary suspension of tho order un-
til a further Investigation ot tho case
could bo made. Last week the case
was argued before fho court and it
was announced that a decision would
bo rendered this week. The outcome
has been watched with much interest

OKLAHOMA
CLOSES DOOR
ESTABLISHES STRICT QUARAN
TINE AGAINST TERRITORY.
Including Also Texas Louisiana and
Arkansas Oklahoma's Board of
Health Evidently Seared and
Won't Take any Chances.
Dr. Carr announces that rigid quar-
antine has been established against
Ardmoie and Indian Territory points
and also points in Arkansas by the
Oklahoma Board of Health. The ex-
tension of the quarantine against tho
territory cunie In tho nature ot a sur-
prise to those who havo been watching
the situation and It was declared that
If any alleged renson for tho action of
the Oklahoma Hoard of Healih exist
ed It was not made public.
Tho agreement to adopt drastic
measures against this rountry are ap-
parently without nny reasonable ex-
cuse thnt would Justify Oklnhonia from
fortifying Itsiif against n section freo
from tho fever. It would Indicate that
the board ot henlth displays that tin-
caslucss which conies from a country
badly scared but whero there Is no
real danger. Oklahoma evidently
takes tho position thnt tho territory Is
freo to Invade from infected districts.
No other reason would Justify her to
draw the regulations as tlghe as n
drum and causing great Inconvenience
among persons who havo business In
Oklahoma It Is hoped that the policy
of requiring people to produce certi-
ficates will be aabndoned as soon as
iwsslble.
Tho board Issued the following no
tice at Guthrie yesterday:
"To tho Public: it is necessary that
the Hoard ot Health be understood In.
the matter of quarantine. They do
not require any one going out of tho
Territory to havo a certificate. That
Is a matter between passengers rail-
road companies and the state to which
they are going. We require certifi-
cates from the following states Texas
Louisiana Arkansas and Indian Ter-
ritory Those that come from these
btntes must present to tho proper of-
ficers certificates signed by county
superintendents ot health ot local
health officers and certificates signed
by any one else will bo refused. The
only authdiizod officials hire are ihe
county superintendents of health. All
without certificates go at their own
risk" Signed by the members of tho
Territorial Board of Health.
Persons from Ardmorc contemplat-
ing visiting Oklahoma had better se-
cure proper health certificates In ac-
cordance with the regulations of tho
board.

CALL FOR STATEHOOD MEETING
Durant Commercial Club Takes Ac
tlon at Session
Durant. I. T. Aug. 31. The Durant
Commercial club met in extraordinary
besslon la3t night. The meeting was
called to consider the proposition of
Issuing a call to the districts of In
dlan Territory to send delegates to a
single statehood convention at Durant
which convention shall be held for the
purpose of discussing the advisability
way and means of submitting to a vote
of the people of Indian Territory the
question of statehood whether we
shall Join with Oklahoma or enter as
a separate state.
The club passed resolutions unani-
mously Indorsing tho calling of the
convention and the chair upon author
Ity given him by the club appointed
W. D. Gtbbs C. C. Hatchctt. A. P.
Blackwell W T." Whltelatch and A. L.
Severance as a committee of fives to
Issue the call for tho convention to ap
portion delegates and fix tho date for
holding tho convention In Durant. This
committee Is in session today. It Is
understood that tho committee will fix
the date for the meeting about Sept.
20 or 2S. '
The secretary of the club editor W.
D. Gibbs stated to tho club that Du-
rant has as much right to call such a
convention as any other town of tho
Territory hence the early worm
theory.
Helatlve to the action of the Du-
rant Commercial club In taking prelim-
inary steps to call the statehood con-
vention R. L. Williams. Democratic
National committeeman of Indian Ter-
ritory said this morning.
"I think that tho action of the clui)
Is a mistake. Tills matter Is one that
tho single statehood executive commit-
tee has exclusive Jurisdiction over and
I do not think that tho single staters
will pay any attention to the call of
any Commercial club I was not pros-
sent at tho meeting of tho club and
I had no intlmattlon that the matter
was to be brought up. I believe that
the single statohood executive commit-
tee is looking after the interest nf sin-
gle statehood properly. It would be
right and proper for a Commercial
club to invito tho single staters to
meet In a certain town in event that
ho committee saw fit to call a meet-
ing in Indian Terrlory. but It not prop-
er for a commercial club to- call such
a meeting."

CROP CONDITIONS IMPROVING.
Farmers and Others say Cotton Is'
snowing ftiarKea Improvement Now.
Reported Improvement In tho condi-
tion of the cotton crop continues to
reach Ardmore and there la some hope
among the farmers and merchants that
the Improvement will contlnuo and
thnt there will be some recovery from
the loss occasioned by the ravages of
the boll worms. The Improvement no-
ticed has been slight however but far-
mers state that this beats a deteriora
tion In the crop such as was predicted
sSine two weeks ago when It was
stated by many that the crop was go-
ing to ruin.
Farmers agree that rain is now
needed to Improve crop conditions and
thnt if there should be n good fall ot
moisture there will bo a perceptible
I n r reuse In tho yield. It Is contended
that conditions must bo propitious nnd
availing such the tiller of tho soil
views the future with that feeling
which comes to n man who does not
dospair of hope
Inwardly ' . man who has planted
the julk of his land In cotton has
had Utile to encourage him In the past.
Conditions gave him no assurance thnt
he would reap the harvest ot his tol)
With an abundance of rain followed
by the ravages of boll worms his pa
tience has been vexed nlmost beyond
endurance Should ho market CO per
cent of the crop this year ho Will havo
ample cause to felicitate himself.
J. A. Bowman who has Just return
od from n trip through tho western
portion of tho Chickasaw nntlon states
thnt the worms have abandoned cotton
He says that farmers are In better
spirits than they were about two
weeks ago. In some sections he suys
tho dnmnge will bo much greater than
In others. He thinks that there in
be a good yield In this section If con
illt ions are anything like fair. A groat
deal of tho lleeey staple has to be
m-ade as yet and the only requirement
Is good weather. Ituln Is needed Just
at present.
From J. F. Hughes of Marietta a
traveling man It is karned that crop
conditions In tho Cornish section are
very satisfactory tn the iino Grovo
settlement some damage has been
done. Mr. Hughes said that with good
weather tho farmers will mako a very
fair crop although be believes that
one-third of tho crop has been damage3
lu the past by the rains and worms.

Iness. Perhaps Mr. Kendall Is roro
enthusiastic about tho future ot his
town than nny other slnglo man and
he spoke ot tho wonderful progress
nnd the rapid strides that tho town hns
been making In tho past few months
This building activity Is duo to the fact

morning when fifty teams will bo
placed lu the lleld.'Tho contract spec-
ifies that the lino must bo In operation
by March 8th between Davis and Sul-
phur. Davis has subscribed toward tho
road $12r.00.
Tho advantages of the lino arc ma-
ny. It will mean that Davis will bo not
only a Junction of two great trunk
lines but will have an Interurban from
Sulphur to Oklahoma City. Tho steam
road will be under construction with-
in ten days and under the contract tho
grade must be completed within nine-
ty days.
This road Is believed to bo an ex-
tension of the Frisco from' Sulphur to
