pletely reverses the situation nb it

everything indicated that. Mr.
Richter would be tho lucky man.
Tho president has promised to
let Mr. Burton name the candi
date, and t was supposed to hold
good when Mr. Burton withdrew
his support of Mr. Tomlinson and
indorsod Mr. Richter. However

Many Difficulties Lie In the Way Of
Anenl Indian Territory condi
(lone a Washington dlf patch says
Many persons from tho Indian
territory now in Washington are
uniting in a memoriet to congress
to enact eomo legislation for their
roliof. They will ask for a form
of local government anil represen
tation in congrees. Because of
conflicting interests congroiB has
taken no aotion in Indian territory
affaire and whatever proposition
has been proposed has been op
posed by eomo powerful influence
from the territory. Tho confused
congressmen havo delayed action
until it probably is too late to ac
complish anything at this session.
A beginning of some kind will
bavo to bo made if remedial legis
lation is secured at tho short term
and for that purpose tho proposed
irtrmorla) will servo for a basis. It
is rgreed by tho members of the
Indian affaire committee that re
presentation in congrees is neces
sary abovo all other thirgs. The
difficulty lies in the difference of
onfriHin ai?it the 'format 4H
government. The dirjbaaqB
are emphasized in tho Moon bill
which organizes the' Indian terri
tory into a territory such as Okla
homa and New Mexico. The Eoott
bill provides for lees complicated
machinery which would not be so
expensive. If, however, a repre
tentative in congress could be ee
cured, jhe needs of tho territory
could be satisfactorily explained
and the conflicting influences have
promised lowoik together to ac
A DARK PICTURE.
Marshal Bennett says (.rime Is Ram.
pant In Indian Territory.
"About the only kind of crimes
that show a diminution in the In
dian Territory are train robberies
and raids on banks," said United
Slates Marshal Benett, of Musko
geo, at the Normandie,
"Crime is as rampant today in
other lines as I have ever known
it, Und my thirty deputies are
kept lorever on tho alert to appre
hend violators of the law. There
isn't a day in the year that we
have not from 30 to 60 men charg
ed with murder in the penitenti
ary. The train robbing business
was discontinued because it got
too hazardous and not from any
advance in morality on the part
of the territory's tough citizens.
"The most efleclivo way we
have in keeping the criminals
down to a minimum of evil work
is to break up their gangs. Where
evor we hear of their concentra
tion officers Are sent to disperse
them. They scatter on the ap
proaoli of tho deputies and singly
have not the nerve to carry out
sohemeB of looting.
"Another factor in tho break
ing up of the gangs is tho improv
ed, modern rifle, In the old days
one or two outlaws could fortify
themselves in a hut and stand off
a company of Boldiers. Thoy can't
do that any longer. With the new
kind of gun the representative of
the law carries tho wbIIb of n log
cabin aro no protection to the ruf
fians, for tho bullets from a Win
chester will rlddlo them And de
stroy everything hidden behind
them at a dietanco novor dreamed
of when tho bad man terrorized

WHO'LL BE POSTMASTER?
Three Cornered i'ostofflce Fight At
W. M. Mellette, national repub
lican committeeman for the Indian
territory, who is in Washington,
notified tho Nowata Republican
club Thursday that M. 0. Bowers
would be retired as postmaster and
the club was'lnslructed to indorso
another candidate. It has been a
three-cornerod fight between
Bowors, L. T. Kinkoad and Joseph
Titsworlh. Bowers received tho
indorsement of the Republican
club and, according to an establish
ed rule, in territory politios, it
was claimed that the Poalofllce do
parlmont would not go baok of
the indorse .ent. The new turn
in the matter establishes a prece
dent that will enter into other con
tests in tho torritory. A new can
didate will be endorsed June 28.
The Reason Why.
Editor Cloonan of tho Muskogee
Republican has wondered why the
papers oi the territory have not
been very enthusiastic over the
suggestion that tho noxt press as
