If Senator Quay could get a fair

Tbe republican parly of tbe In
dian Territory is busy these days
planting "organs." The an-

judge, there is scarcely one single
one ol these political "organs"tbat
amounts to a "Mil o'oeans" In a

out of Indian Territory journalism

From tlmo to lime the Herald
has taken pleasure ib speaking a
word of commendation for the
Woik of tbe Dawes commirslon in
the Indian Territory, in winding
up the Affairs of tbe Indians, and
again this paper is pleased to uion-
tlon the splendid progress being
made by the commission. The
commissioners have nor every
thing in fine shape for winding up
tribal a flairs, allotlng lands, etc.
The rolls in the Chickasaw and
Choctaw nations are being closed
and rapidly gotten Into condition
for the land segregation. Chair
man Bixby, of the commission, is
one of tbe hardest working officials
of the United Stntos government,
ills work has been thorough and
complolo, And his hours havo been
regulated by his physical endur
ance, being more ofien twelve and
fifteen hours a day than eight to
ten hours a day. When the affairs
of the territory are finally adjusted
and closed, the lands will be in a
better condition; the records and
lilies will be psrfect. There has
been complaint from some sources
charging the Dawes commission
with moving slowly, but when one
takes into consideration the slu
pendoUB task the commission has
had before it, and the fact that not
a mistake has been made, it is lit
tlo short of marvelous tbe work
that hsa been done by that ocm
mission. Denieon Herald.
It has been very pertinently
suggested that the terms "wealthy
and wonderful be substituted for
"wild and woolly" in speaking of
tbe great, abounding weet. If
there is auy advantage in a defini
tion that defines, or a description
that describes, this substitution
should bs made. Tbe new civili
zation tbat dominates this vast
region, practically unknown half
a century ago, ie shown by a recent
incident obaerred ten miles from
a Kansas town, and thud related
in the Youth's Companion: "A
farmer riding under an owning on
a sulky plow met at the end of his
furrow the rural mail wagon. The
driver tossed the fsrmer a bundle
of mail, and as the team look up
its steady course back across the
half mile field, the farmer unfolded
the dally paper, printed that
morning 200 miles away, and read
of tbe happening- in China and

Truly, there is nothing suggestive
of a "wild and wooly west" in this
picture. "Wealthy and wonder
