Oil Pirates Have Started
Their Campaign Against
With Renc-gado Gberokoes to Pay
for Voles Cast Against the
Treaty .-Working Prlncl-
pally Among the Full,
A boodle campaign against tho
pending treaty has been inaugrated
by the oil pirates in tho fullblood
'district, and Ibeir agents are con.
trading with Cherokee politicians
for the delivery of the fullblood
vote on AugUBt7.
That these land shark are fully
aware of the importance of defeat
ing the treaty, which would drive
them out of the country, is evj
dencad by the (cope of their plans
to defeat it.
With headquarter in Kanas
City, Mo,, they have sent their
guilts throughout tbo Nation seek
ing out the dlsreputabio politicians
who are always for sale.
These egentB have, in a measure,
been tuccetsful, and have em
ployed a number of theso rene
gades to deliver the fullblood vote
at a fixed price.
One of these ogents who has
been operating in Illinois district
has already made bis report as to
how many votes can be purchased
In bis district. Throughout the
Nation ibis campaign by purchase
is being quietly but thoroughly
conducted, with seemingly an un
limited corruption fund behind it.
It is definitely known wbero
these hirelings are working, and
one has openly boasted of having
signed contracts with a majority of
the fullbloods in his section to vote
Against the treaty.
JJnlefB some action is taken to
counteract this influence the
chances for tho ratification of the
treaty are greatly imperiled.

Regard to Territory,
In an interview at South McAl

tle, one of tho best informed men
on Territory affaira in congress,
discussed the necessity of educat
ing tho eastern members as fol
lows: "What is absolutely necessary
for this territory to do is to odu.
oate congress on Indian Territory
matters. While it is often repeat
ed, it is true, that tho avorage east
ern member of congress baB no
clear conception of the wonderful
country belonging to the five civil

refer to (he "Indian reservation"
with such application that tbeir
ignorance is clearly indicated. I

me wflh the injustice of any plan
that would tend to lessen her im

would be; JCeep up your fight for

going on around you; unite on sell

In discussing' the legislative
measures affecting tbe Territory,
Mr. Little said: . .
"I believe that the omnibus
statehood bill can be passed in tbo
senate with easo. There' is a pos
sibility, however, of the senate
amending lbe bill so that Indian
Territory may be included in Ok
lahoma's admission. Or, again, '.if
the bill is passed it may bo detri
mental to Indian Territory's fu
ture, in bb mucb-as a provision in
tbo omnibus measure allows tho
addition of any part of Indian Ter
ritory lo Oklahoma. If this method
is adopted aud such portions of
the present Indian Territory added
to Oklahoma aa to insure a repub

of ibis territory will bo too small

at 1,500 people were jammed and
crowded around the station. Fight
