From a copy of the Bison Courier, Clerk of Courts Charley Hanson sent to his sister, Miss Carrie, of this city .we find the following torteresting In formation from his pen which applies as well in this county as In his: For the benefit of aliens who desire to become naturalized citizens, I will herewith submit a few facts. Aliens in Perkins County seeking to become citizens of the United States are possibly a little negligent In their efforts to complete their naturaliza tion after taking out their "first pa pers." Under existing Naturalization Laws the life of a Declaration of Intention Is limited to seven years on all De clarations executed after September 2 61 4 1906. Declarations executed prior to this date are good forever, it being required that petition for na turalization (commonly known as se cond papers) be filed thereon not less than two years after the execution of such Declaration. This fact is apparently not general ly known among those who In this county have filed their Declarations, as already a considerable number of such papers have "expired or lapsed" by reason of this limitation, accord ing to law then, it will be necessary for the holders of such papers to file new Declarations if they desire citi zenship and wait at least two years thereafter before being again eligible to Petition for Naturalization. It will be required of you to show that you have resided In the United States at least five years, prior to the date of filing your petition, and the petition shall be verified by the affi davits of at least two creditable wit nesses, who are citizens of the United States, and who shall state In their affidavits that they have personally known the applicant to be a resident of the United States for a period of at least five years continuously, and of the state In which the application is made for a period of at least one year immediately proceeding the date of the filing of his petition, and that they each have personal knowledge that the petitioner is la person of good moral character, and that he is In every way qualified, in their opin ion, to be admitted as a citizen of the United States. At the time of filing his petition there shall be filed with the Clerk of Court a certificate from the Depart ment of Labor, if the petitioner ar rives in the United States after June 29th, 1906, stating the date, place, and manner of his arrival in the United States, this certificate of ar rival must be filed at the time of fil ing the petition. That in case the petitioner has not resided In the state, for a period of five years continuously and immed iately proceeding the filing of bis pe tition he may establish by two wit nesses, both in his petition and at the bearing, the time of his residence within the state, provided that It has '•i *L"'V fa.

His address was an inspira tion to all who beard him. He told us something of the great difficulties in the beginning of his work and the remarkable success later on in its his tory. A most interesting point was the favor with which the leading men of China look upon the Christian edu cation of their people. Two officials gave $3,000 each to the school in Chen tu and the President of the republic gave $4,000. He claims that in a few years this school will supply the na tives workers so that we will not need to send our sons and our daugh ters to West China.
