fairs passed tho house Monday.
No opposition develoded in tho
house to the measure, nnd it wns
passed without amendment. The
president's signature is assured,
which with the ratification by the
Chorokoe people is nil that romains
to be dono before tbo measure be
comes operative. The principal
leaiures oi tne bill nre the pro
visions for allotnunte and the
purchase of townsito property.
The allotmqnt provision is as
"There shall be nlloled by tho
com mission tn tho five civilized
tribes and to each citizen of tho
Cherokee ttibe.ne sbdnas practic

secretary of the interior oi his en

government survey may be dealt

four equal parts in tho usual man
ner, thus making tho cmallest
legal subdivision ten actes, or a
quarter of a quarter of a section.
"Each member of said tribe
shall, at the time of ibe selection
of his allotment, designate as a
homestead out of said allotmenlol
land equal in value to fprty cores

course the democrats are all for

The (jMobe democrat is very anx
ious to expose the political corrup
tion of the'democratic parly in the
state of Missouri, but the trouble
with the political papsra h, thsy
can only eeo one side of a question.
When the republican party was in
power in St. Louis the 'corruption
of that party in city affairs was
certainly just as great as the cor
ruption of the democratic
party in state affairs, but the good

It is the irony of fato that Sana
tor Burton, who has boon the al
leged political lord of the territory
Bhould have lost all of his politl
cal prestige, in a struggle to retain
control of this section. The de
viouB methods he pursued in his
efforts to land RIchterthe marshal
ship, killed any influence he might
have had with the present admin
istration, and has so strengthened
the opposition to him in his owii
state that ho can be properly list,
ed with tbe "dead ones."

has beeu a most valuable one to

Probably no holiday In all tho
wide world is so heartily colobrat
ed as our 4th of July. No moro
thrilling words exist In uny lang
uage than words liberty and Inde
pendence They stand for that
which God gave to Adam and Eve,
remember to Evo too, ao long ago
when thoy camo into tho posses
sion ol tho power of choice. Yes
liberty was ono of the first divlno
cifts to humanity. But liberty is
dangerous without love, that gen
ulno kind of lovo that worketh no
ill lo a neighbor. God implantod
lovo in tho heart of Adam and Evo
parental lovo and it has been a
great controlling power in all na
tions over Blnco.
Peoplo from many lands lmvo
poured into this country seeking
porsonal froedom and their child

rapidly they become Americaniz
ed. They may not be able to speak
and read our language, but thoy
seem to get hold of tho idea ol lib
erty, personal liberty. To some
of thoBo people tho idoa or liberty
does not reach a very high ideal,
in fact sometimos it means only
personal llconso, but they cole
brato In hearty fashion the Fourth
of July, ye, and election day.
The manner of their celebration
is rather an expression of this idea
of personal license than any idea
