J77J2 1XDIAXS AND TIIF. BOOMERS.
As has been feared all along, tho Okla
homa boomers are spilling over into the
Cherokee strip, for' which tho Gov
ernment is about to negotiate through
commLwIonors, and are squatting with
a view to anticipate tho purchase so
that when it is effected they may be able
to assert squatters' rights. Tho Chcrokecs
police their lands and are very rigorous in
enforcing their laws, which are opposed to
any settlement within their territorial
limits, under any protenco, by white men
unions they aro adopted Into the tribo and
thus acquire tribal rights. They will there
fore, no doubt, cxpol, or try to expel the
squatting boomers, and If resistance
is offered bloodshed may ensue.
Cuch a collision might precipitate a general
movement by tho otiier Indiuns of tho
Territory, who are likely also to find their
resorvstlons Invaded through ignorance per
haps of tho boundary that separates Okla
homa from tho rest of tho Territory. Oen.
McCook, of the army, now in command at
Fort Leavonworth, who baa had
ureal exporitnee with the Indians,
has somo fears of trouble from
this cause. For instance, be says
the western boundary of Oklahoma Is not
defined by corner-stones, "but the Arapa
hoos and tho Cheyennes know tho boun
daries of their reservations, nnd have their
own private headstones lit fho river cross
liurs. They police their own frontier, aud
keep Intruders off of their reservation. It
may probably happen that some settlers
will try to enter Oklahoma from that
border; that thpy may supposo they
are in tlio Oklahoma country when
they may be iu the reservation of tho
Indiana. The latter will warn thetuoir, and
the settlers, claiming that they aro In Ok
lahoma, will resist Tho Indians will
maintain their rights and wilt put tho set
tlers oh, and trouble may follow. This,
(ien. McCook thinks, is the most seiions
part of the Oklahoma question." Hut this
will bo solved under tho President's proc
lamation and instructions by which tho
United Mate Marshal Is to call
on the trooi In the Territory,
tinder command of (ien. Merritt,
as a pofso comilatus. Hut tbero
may bo somo fenrful scenes enacted be
fore tho troos reach the stago of tragedy,
and it may be that even the five regi
ments in Morritt's command may not bo
equul to the emergencies even after they
have been concentrated, which would
take some tlmo. Hut on the other hand,
let us hope that the good sjnso, the love of
law ami order that has so far charac
terized the great majority of thn
boomers may control them even In
such emergencies) as mistakes of boundary
and that (Insto who have wilfully squatted
may bo prevailed upon lo forego what, in
tho long run, would prove worse tliso
useless contest w ith tho Federal Govern
ment. Yet, sad as it is to say It, it is nosy
to see, looking away beyond all this, that
the toils sm being wound shout the In
diana, and it will not be long ere tho w hole
Territory will have to he thrown open for
settlement to the whito man.
Tus Itcpuhlicsns lu otllco are already
speculating on tho necessity for consider
ing President Harrison as a candidate fur
a second term, and reviewing tha field
they do not find any one w ho in their
opinion or lu Mr. Harrison's, could be set

that no memlier of tho Cabinet, except
Mr. IUaine, could bo bis rival. Mr. Win

but nothing else ' In esduiating

Mr. Hlaine then who might interfere. Hut
it Is assumed that should he do so, bo

In responso to the forogoing c.ird of in
vitation, sent out several days ago, the
Central Methodist Church, on Union
street, was tilled to overflowing last night.
There wore two reasons for this lavish
outpouring of the city's best people: First,
tbe contracting parties aro prominent fig
ures in the local rank of society, deserv
edly in the leading name of favorites, nnd
both posssKs that charming individuality
that gives an event such us they woro cen
tral figures in last night, intensified eclnt.
Second, it was the first poet-leuten affair
oocuring in a church or other place
spacious enough to contain the multitude
of admiring friends, yearning iu the desire
to 'vitness the ceremony and afterwards
voice the sentiment uppermost in every
mind, that of sincere congratulation and
good wishes. Thero may have boon other
reasons impelling the large and fashionable
attendance, but thoso cited were the prime
ones, and ample to the occasion.
The ushers, Messrs. Frank D. Farrabeo,
I E. Heath, 8. J. Hayes and I-otns Gib
son, were on band betimes, and looked to
it that every comfort posHible was obtained
by tbe audience in being seated. Prof.
Herman Schulzo occupied the stool Imme
diately in front of the organ, and his deft
lingers brought out the vast capabilities of
the superb instrument, tho concourse of
sweet and appropriate melodies holding
tho patient uudieuce bound as if by magic.
Nhortly after 8 o'clock p.m. there was a
stir at the main entrance to the sa

livening strains of a classic wedding march
