W. M. Ferrell, of Windsor.Mo,,
who has intereslB in and about

last wft k. Speaking of the great
demand for Indian lands, ant) the
general talk of sales In large
tracts, Mr. Ferr.ell said; The
public need take no stock In such
reports. The Creek Indians have
not yet received their deeds of al
lotraent, and until they aro in
vested with Individual titles by

In the colossal preparations that
are being made to enlist the Inter
est of tho states and foreign na
tions in tho World's Fair, to be
held in St. L'luis in 1003, tho In
dian Territory has not been over
looked, and plans aro being ma
lured to get an exhibit from this
intoreating country. A letter was
received by Attorney Luman F.
Parkor Friday from his father,
L. F. Parker, general solicitor fur
the Frisco railroad, and ono of the
Missouri commissioners Jo tho
fair, Inquiring as to who wero tho
beat parties in the several section
of the territory to promote the col
lection of an exhibit. Whilo Mr'.
Parker will have no direct con
nection with the proposed Indian
exhibit, he is greatly interested in
tho territory, and will assist in an
effort to obtain a portion of tbo
nationul government's appropria
tion of 85,000,000, for the display
of territorial industries. The mat
ter will bo referred to the Terri
torial Press Association who have
already had tho question of an
exhibit of Indian industries under
consideration. Tho Frivco rail
road, whose interests are large in
this section will also co operate
to promote a proper display of the
resources of the garden territory.
The aid of the national govern
ment U praotioally asscrrd, and
the aucceati ol the proper txploita
tion of tho tremendous resources
and advan'nges of this country
will be willi tho citizens of the ter
ritory. The coming fair will bo the
most gigantio undertaking of the
kind lhat has e7er been attempted
in the blttory of tho world. All
peoples and all nations will be
represented, and an exhibit from
this practically unknown country
could be made to rival any in at
tractiveness. It is a splendid op
portunity to exhibit our resources
and dispel the fallacies lhat "till
exist as to this country. There
are many who still associate Ibe
Indian Territory with the lurid
border days, which in a measure
affects desirable immigration here.
This is a most opportune timo to
commence the enlightenment of
the country at large on our splen
did opportunities and Bocial status.
Those having the matter in
hand are perfectly equipped to
build up a most creditable display,
and the co-operation of our citi
zens generally should be goner
