The excitement over the gold discov-
eries in G and Washita counties has
spread into ever} i.eok ami corner of
the United States, and today the Okla-
homa gold lields are the chief topic of
conversation all over the country. At
lirst the rumors of Huh linos were ilis-
erediteil ami greeted with smiles of de-
rision. hut as the reports were con-
tinued Jrom da} to tin} l>y men who re-
turned from the camps, even the most
skeptical be* ailie c ti 'ineed that gold

been staked o|V and over where there
are men busy at work i.h pick and
pan, searching for and gathering the
precious metal. An Oklahoma City
man returned from the mines this

rich iii gold, and which he refused to
sell at any price. Speculat ion in mining
claims is lively, some of them having

share of roughs and some disorder; but

ter unless he be a chapter degree Ma-
son can understand the meaning It
reads as follows: "lie that hath an
ear let him hear what the Spirit saith
unto the churches. To him that over-
cometli will I give to eat of the hidden
manna and will give him a white stone
and m the stone a new name written,

Great preparations are being made
for the 4th of July celebration in this
city. Messrs Tusten and Sherman
went over to the agency this morning
and made arrangements for hundreds
of Indians to attend the celebration
and take part in the festivities. Black
Coyote, chief of the Indian police, has
consented to deliver an oration on that
day, and the Indian dances will be
worth traveling a long distance to see.
Six Toes, an Indian who lives west

imens of gold which he says in sign
language lie found in the hills of west-
ern Oklahoma. One of them is a nug

of it there.
