If Blackweil Is really on the scent of coal how that tewn will boom. If some one has salted that coal bol at Biajkwt'.l there will be trouble. Den-is Fiynn's location in California has come out. It is L'js Angeles. Tom Ferguson is mentioned as a possi ble candidate for United States marshal. The coal found forty feet under the sur face at Blackweil is a glossy bituminous varv-ty. Mr. Lincoln of Illinois, a relative of Abraham Lincoln, is after tha Ft. Sill land office. The Kansas editors came back all con viaced that Granite has oil and coal be neath her. It is pretty tough to make the newspa ; er men put up Ji each for that guberna torial banquet. The coroner's jury found that the shoot ing of a nan at Cleo by a deputy sheriif was justifiable. The finest office In ths territory is that of the president of the Northwestern Normai at Alva. After the recent down pour the Eagle, chief river in western Oklahoma, waa a mile wide in places. If coal in large quantities is there. Blackweil will find it If she has to ocre a hole every ten rest. Secretary Hltchcoclt, it is said, has de cided to make Winkler and 3acGuire the officials of the Ft. Sill land office. The Democrats won in the first election ever held by the voters of Chandler as members of a city of the first-class. 'ihere will be a big crowd in Guthrie nest Monday. Ths inauguration will be as much a social as a political event. Governor Jenkins ls making no mistake in reappointing Fred Wenner, the gover nor's private secretary.

At Aiva a man nanatd Hay den drew a gun on the city marshal who was un armed and had to retire with great grace. But he got Hayden later, arrested him and had him fined. Recently at Alva Probats Judge Hughes released Hale Bacus. charged with horse stealing on habeas corpus. The sheriff kicked on the size of the bond, telephoned Judi;e McAtce who assumed jurisdiction, refused to recognize the bond and thus overruled the probate judge's order. Ap parently the sheriff and the probate judge are ln a scrap. Habeas corpus ls sup posed to be inviolate. Cushlng Herald: Bill Heed and Andy Simmons, both wanted for horse steal ing were captured on Turkey creek a few days ago. Thero were two other men with them and three women. Deputy Sheriff Ed Scott, John Adams, Jeff Bark well and Taylor Wagoner went out to see if they could And them but the birds had flown. They discovered the camp and found where Andy Simmons bad carved his name on a rock by the dripping spring. Dolly Komenway's husband told tbe boys that he had seen Heed and that he qffered him five dollars each for every gOod horse he would locate for him with in the next few days. The Pakhuska Journal says: The In dians did not trade as heartily on their card the first of this month as they did last. The Journal says they found out last month that their card was not a yard long and a foot thick and when it was used up that that was an end to their buying unless they could secure money from some outside force. Consequently before ten days of last month had passed they, as a rale, had bought to their limit, and in consequence thereof had to go vls itaing among their more fortunate broth ers. Hence the reason they are buying more carefully th's time. That it Is a good thing for the Indian no one doubts and had it been put in operation ten years ago the Osage Indians today would not only be out of debt hut would have more money In tbe banks than the papers claim the farmers of Kansas have.
