ple notice had been given of the
purposed execution of this law, lo
allow all who wished to remove
their fences themselves, the onicers
observe all possible care. Only the
staples arc cut, causing the wire
to drop to the ground, when ilia
gathered up and sold to pay costs.
No forcible resistance has been
encountered and it is not -believed
there will be any. In some
instances when the officers ap
peared, the owners concluded to
make the best of their unfortunate
position and proceeded to remove
the fences themselves, thus avoid

would arise did they neglect it.
This work it is understood is lb be

Ed. Ciuksxiik: Since our last
die Indian and Texas grass cattle
opened with very strong prices
and heay shipments but soon dc
dincdiully seventy-five cents per
hundred. The past two weeks the
market on this class hasiccn grad
ually strengthening until it is fully
forty cents stronger thap two
weeks ago. Thn heavy decline of
last year occurred-! ing the sec
ond week in July, but owing lo the
lateness oflhc season this year we
do not anticipate a -very heavy de
cline before the third week in July.
It rnav come sooner and may be
later in the season. This weok
the receipts of cattle are light and
all classes are selling at stronger
prices than last. The same is true
of hogs. --
W. L. Green, who represents
the Northwestern Texas 'Cattle
Baiscrs Association as inspector ef

has been inspector tli c past three
years for the Panhandle Stock As
sociation of Texas, also for the
Western Kansas Cattle Growers
Assoclaticn, has been on the ground
about two weeksv I would sug
gest to my Ylaiia friends ta got as
many of their cattle on the market
before the middle of July as they
possibly can, if In good flesh, a
better hog market is ah looked

one quarter section to each moniber

from the government to the Cliaro
kec nation of what ia known as the
Cherokee Strip is as bindhg and
convevs as absolute a title to Ihis
huid as tiiat received from the gov
ernment by any settler on the
Osage lauds or any other public
land. To call thai patent mto
question' would be the same as
questioning the title of the quarter
section owned bv any fanner in
this vicinity who holds a patent
from theigovernment. Payno and
M rnmimnv are iust as well aware
of these tacts as we are, and yet for
the sake of the dollars lie receives
from these boomers he leads them
?nfn iliTu miintrv. remain;! them to
loose a summers work and what
little money and property they
have accumulated in flic prccod
ingv&arsof toil. Payne receives
$5 p'or head from his followers as a
colonv membership fee and $3 per
head "for entering on the books the
quarter section they claim, making
$S in fees, and that which he pre
tends to give as an equivalent is
worse than worthless. Payne has
lived off ihe poor people for tho

is no nearer securing for them what
