A good many volumes about Okla
homa as it appeared April 22nd, and
for a few days thereafter, have been
printed and eagerly read; a few words
about it as it now appears may be ot
There Is little need to describe to
Kansas people the country as it ap
pears to a passenger on the train.
Most of them have seen it, and such as
have not can call on their memorv, if
they were in Kansas twenty yearaago,
or on their imagination if they were
not, to picture the waving seas of green
grass stretching out unbroken to the
horion, with here add there winding
strips of darker green marking the
direction of some water course. It Is
the primoval prairie, which one who
was born upon it sees always with the
keenest enjoyment, feeling as if he had
again coino back to the place where
whero there was room to
breathe. Here and there upon
this prairie, after the Cherokee Btrlp is
crossed, some signs of occupancy may
be observed, a shanty or a tent or a
dug-out or a covered wagon or a
mound of dirt or a stake with some
body's name on it. Occasionally too
some ploughed ground may be seen,
but there was not nearly so much of
this as I had expected and I remem
ber only ono place where there were
signs that anything had been planted.
It is evident that by far the greater
mnjority of those who took claims on
the 22nd of April have availed them
selves of the G months leave of absence
granted by the law to spend the sum
mer where they can earn something,
expecting doubtless to return to their
claims in time to prepare them for a
crop next season.
There are several little stations
whero a few stores have been put up,
but there are only two towns along the
railroad worth speaking of, Gutbire
and Oklahoma City. The former cov
ers 1,200 acre9 and its boom seems to be
marching ou in spite of red sand and
conflicting city governments and
mobs. I did not stop there, however,
and as there is but a poor view of the
town from the railroad station, I am
not qualified to pass judgment on it.
Oklahoma Qity is much more favor
ably located, In its relation to the rail
road, for it lies along the track for two
miles, on the same level so that the
passenger may see at onco the long
rows of business and dwelling houses,
the graded streets and the crowds that
throng all the thoroughfares. The
town lies on the west side of the rail
road and Is two miles long north and
south by one half mile wide. And
these limits define it exactly. Within
them it is all town, for the conditions
oft ts settlement require some sort of
improvement on every lot, while be
yond them it is all country. The
town doesn't ravel out, with straggling
houses on thejoutskirts, half in town
and half in the country, as is the case
in the States. If it were walled in its
boundaries could Hot be more clearly
defined. The north line of the town
site runs along the crest of a ridge
which slopes down gradually for a
half mile or so before it reaches the level
of the business portion of the town.
When this level is reached, however,
there is no more variety for the rest of
the site is as even as a brrn floor.
There are four business streets extend
ing the half mile from the railroad to
the western limit, and these are grad
ed and built up almost solidly on both
sides. All the houses are wood, of
course, and most of them are the mer
est shanties; but there are a consider
able number of substantial two-story
buildings among them. Tents may
fatill be seen here and there but they
are not nearly so numerous as I had
anticipated. Aside from its newness
the town has few of the frontier char
acteristics. One runs across a stray
Indian occasionally, and almost any
time of the day one may hear in cer
tain neighborhoods the monotonous
chant of the keno "caller" or the click
of the faro chips floating out from the
wide-open gambling dens; but you
ran't get up anything very "wild and
woolly" without whisky, and there is
no whisky in Oklahoma. The town is
phenomenally quiet andorderly. Hav
ing no law but the will of the people,
here is yet no lawlessness.
There are now probably 3,000 men
in Oklahoma City, representing a pop
pulation when the families arrive
of some 9.000 or J0,000. How are all
these people going to live? They will
live oil each other for the most part
for a year or two. A large proportion
of the business men located there are
men of fair means who expect to make
the place their home and who will pay
out large sums of money in the way of
public and private improvements. It
is expected too that two or three nsw
railroads will build into the town
within the next year, one of them be
ing pledged to begin woik within 30
days. Then this is a distributing point
for a number of townB and a large
scope of country lying off from the
railroad, and is already doing a large
wholesale business. The settlement
and improvement of the tributary farm
lands will also bring a great deal of
trade. "And when these lands are all
taken and are under cultivation the
town will certainly ilourish for it is
situated in the garden spot of the Ter
ritory, in a valley that seems capable
of producing splendid crops of every
northern cereal, with tobacco and cot
ton In addition. So taking all togeth
er it seems to me that Oklahoma City
is a pretty solid town.
Of courue the future of Oklahoma de
pends on the rainfall. The soil In the
main, is undoubtedly good. It is
lighter, with more sand in it than
ours. So light indeed that the prairie
sod can be broken with a single team
of horses. But it has beendemon
srtated again and again that with
plenty of rain such soil will produce
abundantly. It can never be a better
country than Kansas; but it may be
nearly as good if it rains.
The Iola folks located there seem
well content and prosperous. George
8mcltzer, Bert McNeil, Kobe White,
May Ellis and Cliff. Scott are working
in the Journal office. The Journal
itself is flourishing mightily, publish
ing a daily and weekly edition and
employing eleven "hands," not includ
ing the proprietors. W. A. Scott has
one of tho best buildings In town, and
is enjoying a good trade. Col. Jones
seemed quite at home in front
of ths Hotel Weaver. Asa
Jones is holding down a
valuable claim cornering with tho city
on the northwest, and devoting his
spare time to blessing the man who
sold him a span of Texas ponies. If
they would confess it it probably
makes all of them a little bit home
sick to see some ono from Kansas; but
they are all strong in the faith that
fortune, if not fame, awaits them in
Oklahoma City. C. F. 8.
The township assessors have all
made their returns and from the ab
stract, kindly placed at our disposal by
the county clerk, we have madea note
of the important items from last year's
returns. The comparison will be found

STATISTICS OF THE PUBLIC 8H00LS.
For the information of those interest
ed in the public schools of the county,
I have prepared and now submit, the
There were during the last year 73
organized districts in the county em
ploying a total of 100 teachers, of which
forty-one were males and fifty-nine
weie females. The average wages
paid were: males, 46.60, females, $35.
Total amount paid out for teacher's
wages, $27,142, of which the State and
county funds paid $3,431. The total
number of months taught in the conu
ty is 525. There are 5,221 pupils in
the county. Tho average cost per
month to each pupil for teacher's
wages is seventy-five cents, deducting
from that the amount paid by the
State and county funds, an average of
sixty cents per month is left for each
The schools are i.i a nourishing con
dition, generally, and this i? in my
opinion, a very favorable showing for
their financial condition.

THE KAISER'S PALACE,
Where the German Imperial Family Spend
tba Winter Seaaoa.
The old palaoo, with Its great dome,
situated at the city end of the avenue
.Untor den Linden, has long been on
of the most imposing odificos In Ber
lin, but for a very long time past It
had ceased to be tho town residence of
the Prussian sovereigns. Neither to
Emperor William L nor tho Emperor
Frederick ever used it for that pur
During their rolgns this edifice had
beon chiefly given up to tho ceremo
nies of state such as the reading of
the Bpeech from the throno on the
opening of tho Reichstag and Landtag
or balls and other festivals connected
with royal marriages and othor domos
tlo ovents connected with the Hohon
itollern family. Thero being no other
palaoo in Berlin easily available for
the accommodation of tho familv of
William II., his Majesty determined to
have part of the old palaco renovated
and refurnished for tho purpose.
Tho new furniture and Internal dec
orations are all on a magnificent ecale,
some half m'lllon marks having been
spont on them within tho past few
weeks. Tho chief entrance is tho por
tal near tho Sprco. A doublo flight of
stops leads up to tho first floor. From
the landing hero you pass through an
anto-room in another apartment, whero
you find tho aldcs-do-camp on duty In
waiting. Next to this department Is
the hall of tho standards, with an area
of about sovonty squaro motors, whore
all tho flags of tho Berlin garrison are
kept. It Is also known as tho Star
hall, from its whlto colling studded
Beyond this Is tho Emperor's working
room, tho walls of which aro covered
with costly brown leather, adorned
with bouquets of flowers hung with
many paintings, nearly all soa plocos,
and mostly by Dutch artists. The
only oxcoptions aro a very fino por
trait of Frederick tho Great, and two
othor family portraits, by Honthorst.
Thon follow tho nudlonco and confer
ence chamber and tho library, tho fur
nlturo of which latter is covered with
red leather. Tho walls aro lined
with beautifully-carved open book
cases. On ono 8ldo of this room aro two
doors, ono of which leads to tho dining
room and tho othor to tho drawing
room. Tho dining room Is a largo and
splendid saloon, capablo of comfort
ably accommodating a hundred per
sons. Tho celling Is adorned with
bright paintings, surrounded by rich
gilt rococo ornamentation, similar to
that about tho splendid Gobolin tapes
try that drapes tho walls. Berlin Cor.
DAMAGE BY MOISTURE.
Tba Sweating of Goods In Iron Ship the
Latest Ferll of the Soa.
Genuine sea damago, i. c, damage
by actual contact with sea water to
goods on board chip, has largely de
creased sinco wood gave ploco to Iron
and stool in the building of ships, and
sail to steam. Iron does not offor tho
opportunities whloh wood does to
wator to find its way Into tho hold3 of
vcssols. Tho consequonco Is that per
ishable cargooa aro more safely carried
than they wore so far as soa damago is
concerned. But thoro Is an internal
enemy to tho soundness of cargo, as
well as tho external salt water, In tho
shapo of condensed molsturo arising
from tho goods themselves. And un
fortunately tho damages caused by this
porll socm to bo on tho increase.
Somotlmcs when cargo Is Improperly
shipped damp and shut up In tho hold
of a vessel on a long voyage, It Is to bo
expected that tho moisture will ovapo
rato and damage other goods on board.
In such a case, of course, both mer
chant and captain aro to blamo, tho
merchant for tendering and tho captain
for receiving goods likely to damago
But sweat Is not confined to goods
shipped wot, rice, for instance, may
bo apparently perfoctly dry when
shipped, and yet may becomo very hot
and emit a vapor whilo lying closely
stowed in gunny bags In tho hold.
Tho vapor rises, and, coming Into con
tact with the cold colling, condenses,
and either falls onto tho top tier of
goods, causing damage, or runs down
tho internal sides of tho ship, and un
less tho cargo bo well dunnagod, dam
ages tho bottom tier. Rice Is not tho
only article liable to sweat. Among
others aro skins, wheat, some nuts,
and copra, which last aro Bun-dried
broken kernels of tho cocpanut. The
number of ships reaching our ports
which carry among their cargo ono or
mora articles liable to emit a vapor Is
a considerable portion of the whole,
and merchants and underwriters find,
to their cost, Increasing damages from
Internal causes. In somo cases mer
chants havo gone on receiving dam
aged goods for a long time before they
suspected tho true cause of tho wet
ting or mold, and underwriters havo
continued to settle claims as for sea
damago without suspecting, or if sus
pecting, without being able to prove
that tho depreciated goods had not
been In actual contact with sea water.
It is, however, Important to distin
guish between tho two causes of dam
age, for tho reason that the ono comes
within tho meaning of tho expression
"perils of tho sea," while tho other
does not London Economist.
