has been sweeping over the West In-

shook a number of buildings from

Occasional wind gusts caused some
slight rocking of the balloon, but oth-
erwise she proved steady. The French
government provided three torpedo
boat destroyers which proved of great
assistance in crossing the channel.
The Clement-Bayard reached Boulogne
at 10:20 and Folkestone at 11:20.
The whirring of the engines and pro-
pellers attracted the attention of the
people at Folkestone and other towns,
and the balloon arrived over London
just as the streets were filled with
the great Sunday crowds leaving the
churches. The appearance of the

the people to wonder, and hundreds of

was a wild scramble of spectators.

Upon looking into the senator's face
he discovered that death had over-

It is also heid that the bill created

upon the county judge of keeping a

KATY TAKES CASE
TO FEDERAL COURT
Contest Against Deep Fork Drainage
Guthrie, Okla., Oct. 17.—The Mis-
souri, Kansas & Texas railway com-
pany today transferred from the state
court to the federal court its case
wherein it contests an assessment of
$31,654 against its property in Okla-
homa county made for the purpose
of carrying out what is known as the
Deep Fork drainage plan. The com-
pany holds that the drainage will be
of no benefit to the road and that the
petitions calling for the creation of a
drainage district did not give a de-
scription of the property involved.
The Santa Fe, Frisco and Fort
Smith & Western have contested taxes
similarly assessed in Lincoln county,
where the Deep Fork drainage district
is being continued and where $114,-
000 is involved.

There was much competition by bid
ders and the government officers in
charge of the sale considered that the
Indians got an excellent price for the
land. The lowest price was $2 T.o an
acre for very rough unimproved land
and the best land brought as high as
$25.75 per acre. Another sale will

Davenport Writes Letter to Republican
Congressman Which Explains
Headquarters Democratic Congression- i
al Campaign Committee Third Okla
Tulsa Oka., Sept. 29. 1910.
Honorable C. E. Creamer,
Republican Nominee for Congress,
Third Oklahoma District.
1 have tho honor to acknowledge the
receipt of your communication of Sep
tember 26, 1910, replying to my letter
of September 8, 1910, and have read
the same carefully, and in reply there-
to will say that when I addressed you
my communication regarding th • cam-
paign, I did so believing that the peo-
ple should have an opportunity to hear
each of us, and if any statements were
made by either of us that were not cor-
rect the other would be present to cor
rect tjiem. Believing then, as I do no.
that you would make statements in
private wnen I was not present that
you knew were untrue. You say you
remember distinctly what 1 promised
before my election to the Sixtieth con-'
gress, and recall when the restriction
bill passed the house I dodged the
vote. You know, If you know enough
to read English, that this statement lr,!
untrue, and that the Congressional
Record shows this statement to be un-
true?. If you will examine the same
you will find that when the restriction
bill passed the House I \oted for the
same, then if you will examine when
(he conference report came up in the
House to be adopted by the House I
voted present, because the record of
the day's proceedings will show that 1
was paired with a gentleman, a man
who will tell the truth and who is a
Republican in politics. Honorable Ed-
gar C. Ellis, of Kansas City, Missouri
Manhood as well as parliamentary
rules forbade me from breaking the
pair, and no gentleman who had given
his word and paired with another gem
tleman would do so.
This is one of the false statements
that you circulated and permitted to be
circulated the last three or four days
before the election two years ago that
I desired you to go before the people
and make the statement openly so I
could show you up in your proper
light, and show you were misstating
If I made any promise before I was
elected to the Sixtieth congress that
I did not fulfill or try to fulfill, that
is what I desired you to point out to
the people in a joint discusson, but
you decline. Why? Because you know-
that wnen 1 made a single promise I
always tried to make good, even
though I was a member on the floor of
the house? of the minority party, and
you further know that I made a fight
upon the floor of the House and pre
vented the Cherokee and Creek In-
dians from havng $45,000 annually t;ik
en from their royalty fund to maintain
the lease and deceased land depart-j
ment of the Union Agency at Musko-.
Your statement as to my claiming
credit for the passage of the act re-
moving restrictions is like your other
statements, incorrect. I claim credit
only so far as my vote and know ledge
of Indian affairs went, and as a lawyer
representing a number of Indian citi-
zens we brought Buit In the courts of
Oklahoma to test the question of tax-
ation. I brought the suit as an attor-
ney and I joined in the same with other
reputable attorneys and filed the case
in open court and have never tried to
quietly or secretly do anything, but
have always fought in the open.
I do not think that you can go before
the people and point out a single pro-
mise that I failed to keep or tried to
keep, even though at that time there
was a large majority of the House
You also take occasion to say that
there is a difference between my plat-
form and that of Honorable Champ
Clark's. I have always spoken what I
believed, and in turn I might say to
you that there is a tireat difference be-
tween your "Standpat platform" and
the Honorables, the Senators of Iowa,
f'ummings and Dolliver, Senator La-
Follette or Wisconsin, Senator Bri ow
of Kansas, and the Honorable Theo-
dore Roosevelt the Ex-President of the
United States, and many other prom-
inent Republicans v. ho believe in \ <rk
ing for the interest of the people and
not at the dictation of some machine,
but these too are questions that I de-
ire to discuss with you In order that
we might let the people know who we
are serving, but you decline. Why?
