Vinita has many advantages
that no olber town in the territory
possesses, but they will have to
be developed and advertised to be
of any great value to tho town.

Thero is no ground for worry
about granting franchises in Iho
city of Vinita. Whon franchises
nro granted the peoplo may rest

not be said.
Tho section of country around

of the interior of the recent sur
voy of Viniln will neceBsitato the
improvement of all Iho vacant
lots. While the timo for the
work of appraisement has not been
definitely announced, it is well
for those who wish to protect their
holdings to build improremo.its
The exceedingly prosperous ap
pearance of most Indian territory
towns is undoubtedly a precursor
of an era of unprecedented pros
perity. Tbe unusual activity in
building, and in all lines of bust
ness at this time is tbe beginning
of what will result in the real
ground swell we have been patient
ly waiting for all these years.
Those who have been trying to
keep tab on Iho movements of
Judge Charles Raymond, report
that he leavos on a train going
Bouth and returns on one from the
north and reports that he has been
in TexaB. From present indica
tions it looks as though Raymond
had most of the politicians going
south on a continuous passage.
The EchoolB of Vinita stand at
tho head of the list of educational
institutions in the territory and
their value to the commuity is in
calculable. Every possible en
couragement in the way of im
provements, should be given those
under whose guidance they are be
ing conduoted, lo increase their
efficiency and enlarge their scope.
Tbe fellow who is always at
lager-heads with the newspapers,
and always chafing under some
imaginary wrong, ia generally a
weakling intelhcually, a moral
coward and a political dimagogue
beside. Tbe Bober, quiot citizen,
who wants to do the right thing,
seldom had any quarrel with the
prese. It is the shyster, with the
questionable record who is dodg
ing, and hiding from, and snarling
at the newspapers Look around
and you can pick 'em out.
Tho Daily Chieftain invites its
little friends under grcde eight of
the publio schools lo send in their
answers to (he question propound
ed: "What Three Things does
Vinita Need Mosl?" Don't hesi
tate but write the answers out the
best you can and send (hem along.
There are a number of prizes to
be given and it won't cost any
thing to try. Read the answers that

While it rausUbe" admitted that

nevertheless true the country is

those who are hore will understand

that investments in town property

For Any Action on Moon Bill
at This Session of
WAY IS BLOCKED
By Spooker Henderson, Who is
Bitterly Opposed to Any Ter
ritorial Legislation. Fiold
ing Lewis Discusses
Mayor Fielding Lewis, of South
McAlestor, has returned from
Washington, whero ho hns beon
assisting in the eflort lo obtain
tho pnssngo of tho Moon bill.
In an interview ho has given tho
following discouraging outlook for
the passage of tho measure:
"Friday it was learned that
Speaker Honderson had completed
the list of legislation that would
bo considered by tho lower bouse
bofoie any other bills could be
brought up. ThiB custom pre
vails when tho olosing days of
congress are almost at hand and
it is tho desire of tho administra
tion forces to push as much of
tilth favored legislation on the
house as possible. When tho in
formation that Mr. Henderson
was preparing the calendar was
received, tho friends nf Iho Moon
bill UBCd every eflort to induco
him to give their bill n hearing.
However his opposition to the
measure was so bitter that no per
euaeion could secure tho desired
position on the calendar for tho
bill. He promised that if tho bus
iness thai ho had arranged for the
liouto was trnnsaolcd before ad
journment that he would consent
to Iho consideration of Die Moon
"Mr. Knox was away from the
city and Mr. Moon and othor
friends of the bill did not feel that
it would be safe to press the mat
ter against the wishes of the
speaker, as his opposition would
jeopardize tho measure's succeSB.
It was then decided to eubmit to
the speaker's program without
fight and run the risk of eecui ing
an opening to bring the bill up in
the last days of thu seseion.
"There is no doubt that thn bill
will pass the house if it ooultl be
called up in tegular order. The
same men who fought the state
hood bill are enemies of the Moon
bill. The chances for success in
tho senate are much brighter than
anticipated. I beieve thn measure
would be made a law if it waa pos
sible to get it up before both
houses. However, if the bill can
be called up and pass the house in
the closing days of the seseion,
there is an excellent chance for
its passage ol the senile at the
next session which will he a short
Territorial Delegates llopclul of Fav.

A conference lias been arranged
between the territorial delegates
and the senate committeo on ter
ritories for the purpose or dis
cussing the advisability of at
tempting to pass the statehood
bill through the senate at llils ses
sion. The disposition ol (he state
hood advocates haB been to allow
the bill to remain in the senate
committeo until the short session,
owing to the priB of matters be
fore the senate and tbe presence
of a formidable opposition lo (ho
bill. It is olaimed now, however,
that there has been a ohange in
sentiment In favor of the measuie,
and !t is possible that an effort
will be made to secure its consid
eration at the present session.
Senator Beveridge, of Indiana,
chairman of the committee, lins
been opposed to any action on the
bill, but has promised to tllow
the delegates to present their case
to tbe oommlttte. The democratio
members of the oommitlee are in
favor of the bill, and Senator
Quay is pronounced in its sup
port. Senator Klkins, although not a
member of the committee, is anx
ious to eeoure aolion upon (he bill

to urge consideration of it by the

WILL SIGN BILL,
Congress Accedes To President's
Demands As To Provision of
A resolution has been passed by
both branches of congress provid
ing for extending tbe. timo for
oponlng tbo Spokane reservation
in Washington to Dtneinbnr 30,
1002, Tho adoption if (he resolu
tion will insure tho approval of
tho Indian appropriation bill by
tho Proeident. Ho had informed
members of tho Indian affairs
oommittees of both houses that
unless such resolution was adopted
he would not sign tho bill. It ap
pears that Iho provision for tho
opening of tho Spokano Indian
roBorvation, comprising some 103,
000 acres of land, largely mlnoral,
in tho stato of Washington, was
included iti tho Indian appropria
tion bill on the understanding that
the allotments had been made to
the Indians and Iho mineraljroser
vations mnds by the government.
After tho bill had been pasBod the
President was flooded with tele-
giams stating that prospectors and
Bottlers in large numbers had
rushed upon tho reservation and
mado mineral and homestead
claims, and that the Indian of
ficials and tho United States au
thorities woro unable to restrain
them. It also developed that tho
aliotmont of lands to the Indians
had not been completed, and that
tho members of the tribo wero in
danger of boing shut out altogether.
Tho resolution adopted today will
becomo effectivo at onco, as tho
President has indicated his wilt
ingness to sign the bill with tho
limitation provided by tho resolu
tion. It will then be necessary for
the authorities to eject the pros
pectors and settlers who have been
rushing upon the reservation.

TIPS ON A TRIP TO MEXICO.
How In l)rr nml 1'rnmrp for tlia
Cllmntc of the llrimljllc u
If you arc going to make mountain
excursions in Mexico take rough and
warm clothing, and leggings, to be
used ou horseback trip. If you arc
intending to pans much time In the
cities, provide jouraclf with n dress
suit. The Mexicans nre gny and hos
pitable and glad of the company of
t rangers who oonii properly Intro
duced. Yon will thus be prcpnrcd for
the opera, which Is a favorite amuse
ment in the capital and for all social
functions, says the Detroit Journal.
The lowest temperature la the city
of Mexico Is In the month of Decem
ber. The average of the thermometer
Is then 53.4 of Fahrenheit. The high
est temperature is in May, GI.0, which
means a variation of about 11 de
grees from summer to winter. The
evening arc always somewhat chilly,
In the rainy season damp, and there
fore an overcoat of light weight la
the proper thing to have with you.
In other places in Mexico the tem
perature Is a little higher or a little
lower than In the city, according to
the altitude. Near the coast it is
much wormcr: on the higher eleva
tions it is colder.
On Mexico railways people make
themselves comfortable in the most
unconventional way. Smoking is cus
tomary in all the cars. The ladies do
aot object. As a matter of fact many
of them set the example by lighting
cigarettes. The Mexican cigars are
famed for their mildness. Many
smokers think ' them superior to
Havana. They are certainly good
The great altitude of the Mexican
table lands affects newcomers. It pro
duces dizziness and falntncss, espe
cially on making any exertion, as
walking rapidly, or the like. The sys
tem soon conforms to the chnnge and
after n few days' sojourn the rare
ness of the atmoiphere tends toward
exhilaration of spirits. The altitude
of the City of Mexico is nearly 8,000
feet. This clcalIon Is nbout the
highest in the rrpublle, though one

There nre several places on the way
to Mexico that afford agreeable rest
ing place. One of these is San An
tonio, Tex. Another is Monterey, and
a third is San Luis I'otosl. A halt of
n day at San Antonio Is an acceptable
dJvcrslen. It breaks the monotony of
tftvel through the plains of Texas, a
state so vast that two days on the
road will Just about carry one from
the northern to the southern boun
