In discussing Indian n flairs to

who ia in n position to know, des

1 he silualitiu was m turned up
by him in tho following wort's:
"If tho Indian opposes the
government in the scheme that
has been devised for tho nijuet
ment of their afiairs, they" will
imply waste their estate in use
lets litigation. Tho department
has decided the interpretations
to be put on tho acta of Congress,
and feel euro of their position in
tho premises. Thoy will wind up
the Indian tangle in their own way,
and that in the very near future."
When questioned ob to what ef
fect he thought such notion would
have on the futuro political com
plexion of tho Indian territory
after its admission as a stato, he
replied that tho question had been
considered and carefully weighed
beforo the final plan was dtcidod
He lurtiur implieB Hint govern

of the two territories as a stale.

Judge Nolan has appointed a
committee of attorneys to ascer
tain what effect tho Oklahoma
statuto, which restricts the voting
franchise to men who have resided
in (he territory six months, will
have on settlers in the new coun
try. The republicans have de
clared thai they will insist upon a
strict conxtruclion of tho law.
This would shut out a lot of
Texas, Arkansas and Missouri
democrats, and it might enable
the republicans to carry the city.
The democratic lawyers believe
Hint the courts will bold that the
Oklahoma election statute can not
bo made applicable to elections In
(he new country. Their opinion
is dial settlors have the si no
rigblR as did tho original settlers
In Oklahoma. If the democrats
are not disfranchised .thoy will
control tho first city government,
for they are in the majority.
Or A B. Conley, formerly of
Decatur, Tex, is a candidate for
the democratic nomination for
mayor. Judge Nolan also has a
Inoni for mayor.
Tho Republicans havo held sev

to ask the governor to call a special
election for tho last of September.
Tlley have a number of candidates
for mavor, and their convention
for tho nomination of a ticket will
bo an exciting ono. The Flynn
crowd will attempt to control.
The anti-Flynn men will act when
the other crowd decides upon a

advised that n new and villainous
graft has boon duowesfully worked
at El Reno, and probably worked

An inspector was tut v work to

of the fifty quarters ohecked off
have since been filed upon. In

these persons were In a conspiracy
with the person or persons who
checked off the quarters they will
likely lose their claims.
.1. J. McFall of the land office at
Washington, who has been at El
Reno for sevoral weeks, arrived
here yesterday to ascertain whether
the same gratt has been worked in
the Lawton office. He and two
clerks aro proof reading the land
office map, but up to this time no
evidenco of tho fraud has been
found. An order has been issued
(bat no one bo allowed to touch
the land office map.
The officials say that this schemo
beats any of tho numerous tricks
that have been tried on the land
office. The theory advanced Ib
that unscrupulous locators have,
by sleight-of hand, checked off (he
quarters while pretending to pick
out a claim for a client. Every
one of tho fifty olaims proved to be
desirable. Honest homcBeekers
have thus been defrauded out of
the pick, for they make no inquiry
regarding quartora which have
been checked off on the land ofiico
The land office people at El
Reno are doing all in their power
to locate the offense, for it is a Be.
rious matter. Groat stress has
been laid on the proposition of
fairness, and now, with only a
third of the filings made, to have
one of the land office maps show
