> UMBER 18
Senator Owen has presented a
protest to Secretary Fisher of the
Interior department against the
present regulations for selling the
Choctaw reserved lands.
The secretary has had these lands
divided into twenty-four tracts and
proposes to sell each as a whole to
persons or syndicates who can buy
that much and not give the man
with little money any chance.
Of the twenty-four tracts no one
is less than 20ooacresand as much
as 124000 acres. Owen asks that
the sale he put off until July and
that the regulations be ohangedjso
that any one can bid to the size of
SUPREME COURT SUSTAINS
The lT. S. Supreme Court at
Washington last Monday handed
down an opinion in the 3O00O land
cases appealed from an original
opinion by Judge Campbell a t
Muskogee four years ago. Judge
Campbell hied that the U. S. could
not maintain a suit in behalf of the
Indian, and that suit would have
ta b* brought by the individual.
The court of appeals reversed J udge
Campbell, and now the Supreme
Court sustains the Couttof appeals.
These suite were originally in-
stituted by the Department of Jus-
tice at Washington to set aside
deeds, made by the Indians on re-
stricted lands without the consent
of the Department. They have
now been fonr years sealing the
pretininaries, all this land and titles
have been held up and it will take
years to complete the trials.
The Court also held that the
money would not have to be paid
back that had been advanced by

Again the Easter-tide is upon us.
We will do well to ask ourselves,
What does Easter mean to me? A
question that has concerned the
race for more than I9OO years. We
should not disparage Easter be-
cause it is antiquated. Many
other things have come down to
us that we would not think of cast-
ing aside because of their vitality
in life. Once in a while you will
hear some wise “solon”, wise in
his own estimation declare it is
heathenish to teach and observe

quated and has come down to us
of naming the days of the week.
Thus Tuesday was named after the
god of war, the Latins called Jupi-
ter, the Greeks called Zeus: Thurs-
day was named after the god of
thunder etc. Why did not Christ
command them to cast aside the
names of the days of the week?
Why not some of the sages call a

morn? I hope they are few.
If some one were to ask what
Easter stands for, nintynine people
out of every hundred would answer
casually that it testifies to the ris-
ing of Christ. This is the conven-
tional answer, and it is true so far
as it goes, but it does not go far
enough to be a very good answer.
The east has from time immem-
orial been venerated in a religious
way. People looked in that buar-
ter for the rising of the sun,- and
in time the east took on a special
sacredness as symbolizing light, the
rebirth of nature and the promise
of new lile. Even down to recent
times the custom is common among
Christians or facing the east when
mentioning the name of Jesus;
churches were built with their alters
to the east, so as to be facing in
that direction at the great resurrec-
tion morn a custom which is ob-
served among us today. Shall we
kick against auniversal enstom?
This symbolism about the never-
ending miracle of the rebirth of life
runs strongly through all the relig-
ious and popular lore of the East.
In Jhe East it is understood, hut
in the West not, because its origin
has been obscured
the mbit, as the symbol of fertility
and prolific reproduction was adopt-
ed into the symbolism of the season.
These symbolisms originated am-
ong the Persians, the Romans using
the same in their spring customs
and we are doing the same. Among
the Jews the Passover became ti e
great spring festival and we know
something of what it meant to them.
They ate a lamb as we eat turkey
on Thanksgiving and Christmas
and the lamb finally became sym-
bolical of Christ. They also ate
eggs at this time. Thus in eating
eggs we, to some extent imitate the
80 the early Christian church
found these customs to deeply root-
ed amoug the people,, that they,
with wisdom, instead of trying to
revolutionize the custom adopted
by them and applied to them a new
significance. The church authori-
ties, who were nearly all-powerful
in matters affecting the calendar,
would likewise made Easter a fixed
festival as it logically should have
been, lo commemorate the Savior’s
rising; but the idea of the day as
being connected with the Jewish
paschal moon could not be eradi-
cated from the popular mind. No
doubt the church authorities would
have had the year begin at Easter
had it not been that Easter was a
movable feast. So Easter day was
fixed as the first Sunday after the
paschal full moon, that is, in a
general way, the first Sunday alter
the full moon occuring on or after
March *21. It can come as early as
March 21. or as late as April 25,
and various other church festivals
are determined by it. It took hut
little readjustment to give the pagan
Easter a Christian significance,
though the fixing of the festival by
the moon had to be conceded.
In conclusion let me say that
Easter taught, inspires hope, while
Easter condetned blights hope as
the frost of winter on vegetation.
The doctrine of the resurrection is
vital in the scheme of redemption,
it is the necessary climax of Christ’s
teaching. Without it the whole
Gospel fabric must crumble into
ruin. Therefore we preach and
teach the truth of the resurrection;
for the word has been given. W.

It is without doubt that Dewey
should have places of amusement
with prices as low as our neighbor-
ing town on the south. People
who acqnire the street car habit
are hard to convince that they
are doing themselves, as well as
their neighbors, a great injustice
by spending their money in other
towns which could buy the same
value at home. The Coliseum is
therefore putting forth every effort
to induce the people to patronize
home industry. Their method is
a practical one and gives every
merchant a chance to boost for the
town. A diamond ring contest is
also attracting large crowds and

something to be proud of.

EASTER AND IT’S MEANING
“He is risen.’’ These three
words announced the greatest event
in all history. There are three
reasons why the resurrection of
Jesus is the crowning event of all
time. First; It was the fitting
climax to the greatest life ever lived
Second: It was the fulfilment of his
oft repeated declaration, “After
Three Days I will Arise Again*"
Third: Had be not risen from the*
dead, we would have no hope of
the resurrection at the last day.
Surely then it is right that one
Sunday in the springtime should*
be especially devoted to the story
of the resurrection and to song and
glad thanksgiving. At this season
all nature presents a beautiful pict-
ure of the new life. What if the
date of Easter is certain, what tho
it does move up and dowa the cal-
endar? That does not matter 10.
