NO ClIANCi: TO SUM. Nl'.MlU'.US.
Washington, July 24. Secretary
Hitchcock has taken cognlzanco of ro
ports coming from Oklahomathat tho
men who aro registering at Reno and
Fort Sill ate doing so with the Inten
tion of transferring ;tlielritrlghts to
others. "The report," ho says, "is
to tho ollect that the lean and will dis
pose of their numbers at enormous
profits. That Is absurd, bqcauso it Is
Impossible under tho regulations for
them to transfer thoir rights. For any
of them to attempt to do so would ho a
clear violation of tho law. Thoy tako
an oath not to do t-ueh a thing and to
uso thoir tights for thoir own exclusive
benollt. There can bo no speculation
in those numbers."
Tho Secretary said also that repot ts
aro coming to the department of
schemes tor disposing of numerous
townsltes, tho promoters ollering
chuncos to tho public. "Tho only
towusilcs whiohhuvo been authorized,"
tho Secretary said, "aro thoso of tho
threo county seats' No others havo
been sanctioned, Jand no one knows
whero others will bo. Henco all ex
cept thoso threo are bogus and reports
of their establishment should be de
nounced us lntonded to deceive tho
public."
Roforrlng to the suggestion that tho
now lands should bo sold at auction
and tho proceeds of tho sale turned
over to the Indians, tho Socretary
said:
"Thoso lands uro as much govern
ment property as aro any othor part
of tho public domain. Thoy havo been
purchased from tho Indians and title
Is no longer In them. Henco tho plan
is not feasible Moreover, it would
not bo wlso If practicable, for If tho
lands wero put up at auction they
would all fall Into tho hands of men
with monoy and tho poor man would
havo no chance whatovor. Under tho
present plan all havo equal lights re
gaidlcssof conditions of wealth, and
and that UiIb fuel Is recognled Is mado
ovidont by tho largo number taking
advantage of tho oppoitunity for leg
Istrutton." Socretary Hitchcock said, with ref
erence to tho effort to
prevent tho'
opening of tho Oklahoma Indian lands
to settlement by Injunction proceed
ings at El Reno, that the preparations
of tho department for the opening
would proceed as If no suit had begun.
"Wo 9hall not let the matter go by
dofault," ho said, "hut wo apprehend
no obstacle from that proceeding.
Any ono can bring a suit."
Slnco July 10 tho thirteen saloons In
El Reno lurvo sold not less than 2,000
half barrels, 102,000 bottles of beer.
At a rough cstlmato this Is (100.000
glusses of beer In fifteen days. Tho
amount of whiskey and other drinks
consumed was largo, but It would be
difllcult to cstlmato It by glasses. The
wholosalo supply depots of leading
browerlos wero eaeli two daS without
beer, which brings tho period of con
sumption down to thirteen days, in-
ciuuing sunnily. Freight tralilc was
so heavy on the railroads thut It was
impossible to get beer shipments de
llveicdon time. Much beer was ie-
celved In express. Notwithstanding
this enormous consumption of Intoxi
cants there was llttlo public drunken
ness and few saloon brawls. The
weather was so hot that men could
drink and lose tho elleets through
picsplration. Had tho weather been
cold It Is a rcttalnty that fights would
havo been numerous.
Tho gambling outfits doing business
on the streets will ho raided before the
hurrah Is at an end. A raid will bo
mado probably to-morrow. The city
treasury Is waiting to have part of tho
gains. The gamblers were raided
once last week.
Fotwlthstnnding the public state
ment ot Secretary Hitchcock that all
pci sons or companies selling lots In
prospective townsltes could bo prose
cuted for fraud, several companies
lieie continue In business. One com

Pr.rsiN Syhui'Co.,
Dour Sirs: For tho past 10 years I

i years ago was taken down with
rheumatism; was not abloto do a days
work for .'t years. All medloino seem
ed of no benefit to mo. A oUr ago I
wus advised to take Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin. I truly hollevol would
havo died but for this medlcino. My
rheumatism is entirely gone and my
stomach is in good condition. It has
saved my life and I cannot reeommeud
it too highly, Yours respectfully
Er.wooi) McCitAckhN.
