It Will doubtless be of Interest to rend
some of tho charges preferred ngalnst
Mr. McAtee. A copy of those covered
by allldnvlt follows:
Kllld, O. T., Jan. 2t5, 105.
To the Attorney Ueneral.
Charges nre hereby preferred ngalnst
tho olllclal conduct of John L. McAtee.
now nctlne; associate justice of the ter
ritory of Oklahoma and Judge of tho
fifth judicial district ns follows:
first After the appointment nnd
qunllllcntlon of snld McAtee, said Mc
Ale appointed It. L. Collins clerk of his
snld district court nnd at the time stated
below said McAtee asked for and re
ceived from said Collins his personal
check In the sums us follows: Mny Hi,
ISM, $100; June si, U9I. $100; June 'J,
1S!M. $10. That on or about the llrst of
July, while the order nf redlstrlctlng
the territory by the supreme court was
being discussed and considered by the
court, said MeAltee approached said
Collins and made a request ot Collins
to let him have $100; that If the ills
Diets were uhang'd as contemplated
that he, Collins, could afford to let him
have that amount, which said Collins
neglected to do, and, several times
thereafter, said McAtec requested Col
lins to let him have the sum of $100.
which said Collins still neglected and
refused to do, although he thought that
the same would put In Jeopardy the po
sition which he held under said McAtee.
That on acount of these "monthly de
mands" nnd other demands for the pay
ment of various sums nf money from
the proceeds of tho clerk's otllce, said
Collins was forced to resign nnd did
resign; that said McAtee at nn time of
fered to pay to said Collins the sums of
money advanced to him, nnd when said
Collins approached him after leaving
tho cleik's olllce nnd demanded settle
ment of the $2lu above mentioned, snld
-McAteo nffecteil great surprise nnd only
consented to repay said sum of money
when threatened with a suit, If he re
fused. Second Thnt said McAtee has at n
rlotis times shown violent prejudice In
the presence of juries against prisoners
nt bar: that upon the trial of one How
en, In G county, who Is now serving a
live years' sentence In tho penitentiary
for harboring outlaws, said McAtee re
fused to allow the prisoner nt bar to ho
called a "if-ntleman," and on the men
tioning of the prisoner at tho bar ns a
gentleman by his counsel, said McAteo
caused the expression to be expunged
from the record and ordered the de
fendant's nttorney to not call the pris
oner a "gentleman" In his presence
ngaln. This exhibition of violent pre
judice occurred In tho presence of the
Third That In D county, O. T., said
McAtee made .in order to the county
treasurer to pay out of cash on hand
$100 to A. S. IJungan for conducting tho
defense of a pauper defendant, when
said fees should have been paid in a
county warrant; said Collins called
McAteo's attention to the Illegality of
this act, when said McAtee replied,
"That Is all right; I can use him politi
cally In this territory nnd I will make,
the order tight or wrong." Afterwards
somu trouble arose between said Mc
Ateo and Diingan, and then McAtee de
clared that Dungan had forged the
order which McAtee himself had given;
threatening to have said Dungan
brought before him on the charge of
forgery, but dropped the matter when
said It. L. Collins, who was at that tlmo
clerk of his court, called his attention
to tho order made.
fourth That nt a term of court held
ot Heaver county, In June, 1S91. tho
board of county commissioners were re
moved from olllce by said McAtee, nnd
after the llnnl adjournment of said
court, Sherman II. Atkinson, his court
reporter, Informed mo that said McAteo
demanded of him that ho change his
records In that case so that the order
would read differently; that upon tho
refusal of Atkinson to change the rec
ord said McAtee came to said Collins
otlleo and demanded to see the records
and entries made in the Journal In this
case, nnd said McAteo either himself
mado or caused S. I Wler, deputy
clerk, to make material changes In tho
record by interlineation and discharged
Atkinson as his report'. for refusing
to do his behest.
fifth That his residence was claimed
Ir. the territory for tho sole purpose of
getting the position he now holds; Hint
ho camo to It. L.Cnlllns, nt the time said
Collins was commissioner of O county,
and nsUed permission to put his desk
In his olllce, nnd while In snld Collins'
olllce and With the assistance nf one
C. It. Thompson, said McAteo found a
fiunrter section of laud which had been
Fettled upon by one Vol Allen, of Texas,
who had at that time returned to Tcxns
for his family, and while so absent said
McAtee tiled upon his claim; then with
what indorsements ho could get, with
my assistance nnd others, he started for
Washington, with "his residence, fully
established;" that snld Ming nn said
claim was a mere pretense of establish
ing residence in the territory; Hint snld
McAtee had not established Ills rcsl
donee In Ilnid, O. T., ns he claimed to
havo done nt tho tlmo of his application
for tho position ho now holds; that tho
tesldence said McAteo claims to have
established ut Hnld was not u week old
when he, McAfee, started for Washing,
ton to get the position he now holds:
that wild Collins has heard the said Mc
Ateo say repeatedly that hn would not
bring his family "down muring theso
hoodlums nnd negroes;" that tho fam
ily of said McAteo now resides nt Cald
well, Ixas., and has so resided there
since before the opening of this county.
Sixth That upon Urn examination of
the parties iirrrsted and brought before
said McAfee for interfering with tho
mail and Interstate commerce net which
caused so much trouble nt f.nld and
Hound fond and the. ordering out nf
tho 1'nltcd States troops In July nnd
August, 1S0I, the said McAtco refused
to sign the orders made In those cases
after ho had Investigated and found
out tho sentiment of the people nf this
point, and stated that C. It. Hmoks,
Halted States attorney, assisted by
John It. DUIe, had tried to get him Into
troublo In this matter which would fot
ever ruin him politically in the territory
when tho same became a state, und
often stated that he expected to make

statehood was given tho territory.

sets forth that the organizations of rail

accord with the general sentiment In favor
of arbitration ns a means for settling dis
putes, mid favor tho enactment of laws by
the national congress ns preferable to any
that might be enacted by the legislatures
of tho different states. "Our position." tho
letter says, "Is bused on the tact these or

favors, nnd desire nothing but what Is
light and fair. We are not disposed to
allow any personal preference In matters
or detail to stand In the wav of the en

The writers point out they have never
been willing to subsctibo to the Idea of a
permanent commission, or n llxed mill
trator named In advance, and, agreeably
to that idea, proposed the amendments re
garding the organization of the arbitration
commission already pointed out In theso
dispatches At the same time, they think

In objecting to section lo of tho bill, as
originally drawn by the attorney goneial.
which gave tho government right to bring

being that any ot the plnnets could send

The first Willi of the City Supposed to
Halo Ueen Discovered.
from the London News.
Dr. Miss, who Is conducting excavations
for tha Palestine exploration fund In Je
rusalem, sends home a report of recent
work In which ho states that he has found,
nt a depth of n few feet, tho foundations
of a wall which may be those of the ac
tual llrst wall of the city, and are certain
ly on thn site of the wall. In the course
of tho work he had uncovered three laige
square towers. He had also found a gnte
way, the doorslll of which was still In sight
with the holes of the door posts and tho
noies ror tne nous, -mis sin was roar feet
above tho ancient paved road which
passed through tun wan at this point,
but on digging deeper he found, four feet
below, and therefore on a love! with the
ancient road, tho sill of nu older gate.
Herr Schick reports that he has found
a postern 111 the north wall on the exact
spot where the leper's gute Is placed by
writers In tho twelfth century.
Itevlewlng tho future ot exploration at
Jerusalem, Major Conder, in an Interest
ing article In the Scottish Iteview, reminds
us that with In the temple enclosure It
Is hopeless to expect thnt leave to exca--ato
can be obtained fiom the sultan. If
It were possible to remove the Magging of
tlm platform on which tho domo of tho
rock no.v stands, or to open tho archways
In the ensiern retaining wall, over which
a mound ot earth was heaped In 1S1,
when Major Conder attempted to get leave
for their exploration, It Is thought very
probable that we should llnd the founda
tions cjf the temple courts nnd steps be
iientti. The "Well of Souls" under tho
Sakhrah Is a cave which has never been
seen by any one now living, and which Is
described by no ancient writer. Within
tho city excavation Is pronounced only
posslblu Immediately west of Antonla,
whcio there Is an unoccupied area, or In
the western part nf the hospital of St,
John, which still lies beneath an accu
mulation ot iubblf.li twenty feet deep. In
all other parts houses nnd monnsterles
cover the ground. Outside, on thn north,
further examinations on the ground wpst
of tbu Damascus gate Is considered de.
nimble, but on the south there Is greater
possibility or work, Thn slopes of Zlon
are covered with terraced orchards, which
aro known to overlie tho remains of the
ancient city. On Onhe a might v rampart

Inscriptions of the early times of Solomon
