T., May28 Assets of the Citi zens bank are turning out daily, some coming from places not on record, and the conditions are improving under, the efforts of Receiver Denton, says the Eagle. Yesterday he made a trip out of town no matter where and returned with $21,813, which was considerable of a "find" as that amount of money was added to the known assets, for the fisttime yester day. Vp to now the receiver has deposited $56,000 of the bank's assets in the Bank of Enid. This is 25 per cent of the entire deposits. The find yesterday amounted to 10 per cent of the deposits. If there is any chance for the bank re organizing, it is 'with the receiver. If he can collect the assets of the bank the bank can then open without trouble. "With the assets tied up by individual deposit ors to secure their deposits it is impossi ble to collect or settle them and turn the money into the bank. There is no question but that the United States Fi delity and Guaranty company wanted to locate some of the assets of the bank in order to protect the loss sustained by the company in protecting the county's deposits. Receiver Denton's action in refusing, and Judge Beauchamp's action in sustain ing the refusal, are generally commended. The depositors are all entitled to equal rights in the settlement of the bank's affairs, and the discrimination asked would not be following a policy that is justice to the other individuals interested SOME CHILOCCO STUDENTS.

They were a bright, alert body of stu dents and made things lively lor half an hour. They were much like other boys and girls and made nearly as much noise. The boys had the real college swagger and the girls giggled after the manner of their sex. 'Probably a more interesting body of Indian students were those from Chilocco who came about 10 o'clock and left on the Missouri Pacific train - for St. Louis at 11 o'clock. There were eight boys, three attendants and twenty-eight girls. The girls were unusually pretty and at tracted a great deal of attention. Chil occo is about seven miles south of Ar kansas City. It is in the Indian Terri tory, and there are seventeen tribes rep resented among the students. The teach ers were: Miss A. "W. Scoft, Miss Ella Harrison and Miss Rose Dougherty. The Indian -school children are part in the Indian exhibit at the fair, and are taken there by the government. They will remain in St. Louis all summer. WILL TAKE COMMAND.

T., May 2S. A number of ranchers In the western part of Beaver county are paying more attention this spring to hog raising than In former years. It is claimed by those who have practiced it for some time that it will eventually prove more profitable than cattle raising. Hog cholera and similar diseases seldom appear here because of the free range allowed the animals, and the only drawback discovered thus far is the lack of corn with which to finish them for market. This deficiency Is ob viated by the ranchers by planting suffi cient wheat, sugar beets, milo maize and sugar cane, which have been found to have great fat producing qualities, and any of which grow readily on the soil here. It is claimed that for the last few years, at least, the hog market has re mained more stationary than the cattlo market and that the hog raiser can count and depend upon a more certain in come than the cattle, man.

BONDING COMPANY HIT Failure to Meet Obligation Would Kill Business. Guthrie. O. T, May 2?- The failure ot the Capital National and the suit filed Wednesday afternoon against the Amerlr can Bonding company or Baltimore for $244,053. has revived an interest la tao manner in which territorial depositor are named, and the kind of wcurity quired. A few years ago the CapltAl National waa designated as a territorial depository and was again so appointed bj Treasurer Rambo. May 1. 1?0S. with Ihi governor, as required by law. and approved municipal bonds and ae- curitles. territorial warrants and sure ty company bonds shall bo accepted aa fccurlty on territorial deposits. Attor- ney-Gcneral Robberts, however, held Hint nntlnnnl hnnlrv niit? not loimllv IMJt the result was that the only kind of security available for such banks was surely bonds. It was necessary to ac cept this or leave the deposits uncovered and on May 1. 1903. the Capital National bank executed surety bonds to the amount of $350,0CO. When P. C. Simons became attorney general Sn. February, he reversed Rob berts decision, holding that territorial warrants could bo accepted as security on territorial deposits. Since that tlmo the territory has given the preference to this class of security, and most of th- deposits In the Guthrie National bank, the Guthrie Savings bank, the Logan county bank and the Bank of Commerce are now covered with territorial war rants, good municipal securities or gov ernment bonds. Only a few thuosanct dollars In all of these bnnks are secured by. surety bonds. In tho government offices at Washing ton and throughout th country surety bonds have always been considered an. excellent security. Bonding companies havo been given the preference In Ok4 lahonia and have "njoyed a lucrative business. The territorial ofllclals aroj confident that they will experience nol difficulty In winning their eas agalnut) the American Bonding company, even! though it went Its rull course tn th courts. Thero are many, however, wh o believe that, as the claim Is In v y way good, the bonding company wll lnr t contest it. Should the company fight th - claim it will have the effect of drivln c bonding and surety companies from Ok -lanoma entirely and materially lttjurinjf thlr standing In th.ttest. No grounda are known upon which they could con-S test the claim, and It would be ti poor btislness move, nnd a death blow tV diow im in. to d the 124 l.-l bonding csmpani"s In Oklahoma. lay or obstruct the payment of Cut to tho territory. Attorney General Simons. In epeaklng of the cult said yesterday: ' .Everything Is In the best kind of shape and then Is not the least doubt In my mind but that th territory will win without ser ious trouble." The attitude of the bonding company Is as yet uncertain. GEORGE WITCHER DROWNED. Young Man Couldn't Swim and 'Got Beyond His Depth. El Rono, (. T .
