Anadarko Daily Democrat.
Anadarko, Oklahoma, October 28. 1901.
WORK FOR. THE BEST INTEREST OF ANADARKO AND UPBUILDING OF OUR CITY.
You Cannot Argue
With a Mad Dog.
Only Ono Courtso to Pursue
Roil Light Must Go.
Thoy hae felt the whiplash of
truth at hint, cringing and shrinking
from the inovitible that is staring
thoin in the face. Ah :i horse shies
at a precipice, ho are the owners of
tho Midway shying at the gulf that
Dkmockat is digging beneath their
Kisinit, it ih fatei you would not
send for a votinary surgeon if you
saw a mad dog running amuck on
your streets, for the purpose of de
claring it mad before vou killed it.
!N"o, you would instantly take steps
to protect your life and the safety
of friends. The red light is worse
than a thousand mad dogs, worse
than the hydrophobia, worse than
all the other vile beastly, poisonous
inventions of the devil put together.
It is tho triple cflsenceof compound
sin. The blasting shadow of Sodou
and Gotnarah, a bacteria of lust and
disease which, unless removed from
the body politic of this city, will
sooner or later iiinoeulalo its entire
being with prostitution, infamy,
disease and disgrace. Why do you
refrain from voicing your honest
convictions. Vou don't believe in
protecting this hellish tralho in
souls and flesh, and yet you do not
rise in your might and join us in
saying thoy must go. Men bo men.
If the written law on -the Hlatuto
books will not close this den of
devils then the law of public senti
ment may slip in and in the name
of morality, our homes and clean
government demand that these pro
moters and prostitutes at once shake
tho dust of Anadarko from their
foot. The ministers of this city
are a unit on this question and Rev.
Methvin read the Record and Di:m
ociiat articles to his congregation

We, the cilir.ons of the 1st ward i
agree with (he Dkmocijat about that
hole in Anadarko, and are glad the
I)i:itoiKAT has taken a stand against
it. Rut you have forgotten the
black dive in the east end. It is a
digraee to the negro race, and it
won't stop here, for there U a col
ored man putting up a big house for
a dive. Now we think, that we
have a set of city ollicers, it ought
to be stamped out of existence. We
don't have any objection to the color
of a person's skin, but we don't want
that kind of a house, black or white
and we will do all we can honorably
to run it out. Wo mean business.

and then urged them to assist in
rooting out this evil.
Wo could not Htop the light at
this tinifr if we wanted to for wo
have a round-trip ticket with no
stop-over privileges and wo cannot
ret off at comnromiso station. One
of us must get off of tho track.
There is not room for both of us.
t This is not a personal tight, but a
for tho good morals and deconey of
this community as against the do
battchory and vile practices nightly
carried on in tho Midway.
This hellish business has so pros
pered since it first opened as to bo
able to double itH capacity. It is a
shame and a disgrace to this fair
Tho Old Officials Iudorsed
Washington, Oct. 'JO. -.lud'e
William Mellette, Republican nat
ional committeeman for the Indian
Territory, is in Washington to dis
cuss federal appointments in the
torlitory with tho President. "There
was an effort among a few lawyers
of-tho southern district of Indian
Territory to bomn a candidate as
successor to Judge Rosea Town
send," lie said. "We kept hearing
that ex-Representative Pugh of Ken
tucky had an eye en that plum. Sin
ce coining neie, liowover, I am con
vinced that there is no serious oppo
sition to Judge Townscnd. The
Republican organization has in
dorsed all the federal ollicers for
the districts of Indian territory for
reappointment. In the Indian terri
tory we aro living solely under the
government of the courts but are
prospering. Nearly everything has
to bo done from Washington, but
we are looking forward to the time
when we shall be part of a big state
We do not want a territorial
form of government, we want to
step direct from our present status
to statehood. Should wo be made
a territory and given a territorial
form of government it would prob
ably be ten years before we could
pursuadc congress to advance us to
tho dignity of the state. Indian
Territory could well bo made a state
with Oklahoma and that is what I
would like to see."

trustioim on allotments. If it is
believed that any allotment has been
irregularly or unlawfully made to
that extent that it ought to be can
celed, the regulations of this de
partment provide for and point out
an orderly method whereuy tins
matter oan be called to tho atten
tion of the proper oflicors and can
be investigated and determined. So
long as an allotment remains on the
records uncanceled it is an effective
appropriation of the ground and no
ono is authorized to go thereupon
or take possession theieof with a
view to present or future settlement
or entry. No individual, other than
the allottee, whether ho be white or
Indian, is justified in attempting to
settle upon, improve or hold any of
these allotted lamb, no matter how
much he may claim or believe that
tho allotment was irregularly made
or lirocured. An individual cannot
in this way, make himself informer,
witness and judge, and carry his
judgment into effect by taking pos
session of tho land. No preference
right can be obtained by contesting
an Indian allotment, and no one,
other than the allottee, is entitled
to oecpuy, cultivate or improve the
allotted laud so long as the allot
ment stands uncancelled. The agent
should make the necessary request
for troops, as shown in tho enclosed
correspondence, and should proceed
at the earliest practicable time to
remove all intruders from these al
lotments and put the Indian allottco
in possession. The fact that any
intruder may be a deputy United
States marshal or other public ofli
cor does not justify his intrusion
and will not protect him from re
moval from the land. In every in
stance the intruder should bo re
quested to vacate the allotment and
bo given a reasonable opportunity
to do so, in default or winch he
should bo removed with tho assist
anco of tho troops, the latter being
used only when necessary and only
to tho extent necessary.
Allotted lands aro not subject to
exploration or occupation under the
mining laws, and no one' is justilied
in holding any allotted land upon
tho theory that he lias located or
claimed the same under tho mining
