Under seel ion 43 of sonata bill 605,
to provide for a temporary govern
incut for the territory of Oklahoma
which wo publish below, tho Tcoria
Indians, residing on their lands a few
miles south of this city, arc made cili
neiis of the United States. This bill
becamo a law only a few days ago and
has caused quite a commotion among
tho Peorias and thoso who have been
sclietninjr to secure leases on thcit
lauds for mining purposes. The In
dians are given absolute citizenslilj
and thus their dealings with outside
persons us well as amongst themselves
will ho irrcailt simplified and entirely
nntramiiieled bv the red tape which
Uncle Sam so much Iiiuiiiircs in.
Tho section of the bill mentioned
also gives any,Indian residing "in the
Indian territory a right to become a
citizen bv aimlyinz to tha U. S. court,
and this clause will doubtless cause an
early breaking up of tho tribal rela
tions among the Chcrokcca and the
four other civilized tribes.
Section 43 is as follows :
That any member of any Indian
tribe or nation residing in the Indian
territory may apply to the United
States court therein to become a citi
zen of the United Slates, and such
court shall have jurisdiction thereof
and shall hear and determine such ap
plication as provided in t lie statutes of
the United Smtea; and tho Confeder
ated Peoria Indians reading in tho
Ojiapaw Indian agency, who have
heretofore or who may hereafter ac
cept their land in severalty under any
of the allotment laws of the United
States, shall he deemed to be and arc
hereby declared to be citizens of the
United Slates from and after the se
lection of their allotments, and enti
iliwl in nil iIia l-iirhirt. Drivilesres and
benefits as such, and parents are here
by declared from that time to have
been and lo he tho legal guardians of
their minor ehildien without process
or court. Provided, That the Indians
who become citizens of the United
Stales under Ili3 provisions of this act
do not forfeit or lose any rights or
privileges l hey enjoy or aro entitled lo
as members of the tribe or nation to
which they belong.
No organization? in the United
States have multiplied more rapidly
in the past ten years than the sick ben
til, funeral aid, death benefit and oth
er kindred societies. As they urc
generally confined to those who are
in the humbler walks of Jife, the good
i hey have done is incalculable, carry
ing substantial aid lo thousands of
stricken families and inspiring those
who are fortunate enough in being
members with a courage which mi" lit
not exist in their hearts without them.
The members of these organizations
will be alad lo learn that Hon. Robert
P. Porter, superintendent of the elev
enth cenena, will endeavor to secure
tho si at is! ics of I he noble work these
associations aro doing, and it U safe to
say that no other bra uch of the cen
sus will be more interesting.

In a recent issue of the New York
World, replying to an inquiry from a
party in Tombstone, Arizona, as to
why money is so scarce thero and
interest so high, we find the following
concise and sensible statement of the
real facts as they exist:
Thero aro hundreds and thousands
of poi sons in this city ready and will
ing lo lend sums ranging from $1,000
to $100,000 at rates ranging from 3
to 5 per cent interest. Not one of them
would lend vou a cent even if you
should offer'them 20 percent interest.
You have no security lo offer them
such as they require. The t ale of in

as thev do not desire a high rale of in

Hi.! lieoiile who talk about

floundering. There is no such thing as
abundant money, or scarce money, in
Ihe sense of location. Money which
may bo defined as the potentiality ot
wealthcannot be abundant in New
York and scarce in Biill'alo. Security
may be abundant or scarce, money
never. Money is jti-st as abundaut in
tho wilds ot Arizona a it is in the
wilds of Wall sleet. If every gold and
silver coin, every greenback and every
bank-note shoulit no destroyed to

"Original I'uckuges."
Gen. C. R. Fisk of New Jersey, tho
prohibition candidate for president in
1SS8, docs not regard the recent decis
ion of the United Slates supreme
court as being so fatal to the interests
of prohibition asNeal Dow and other
prominent prohibitionists look upon it
as bcin?, says tho Kansas City Globe.
Ho contends that the officials have on
lv to be on ihe alert to discover when
t'ho imported package is broken and
liecoino mingled with the mass of
common property in the state. Ac
cording to tlm terms of the decision,
when property becomes thus mingled
it is thenceforth subject to state juris
diction. Hut Senator Wilson of Iowa, an
eminent lawyer, does not agree fully
with General Disk.. Ho says: "iue
practical effect of the decision does not
lcud its entire force on laws of stales
prohibiting the manufacture and sale
within their limits of intoxicating liq
uors, but it applies witli equal effect lo
those states which, without resorting
to such prohibition, havo nevertheless
applied the regulative features of a li
cense svstem. Indeed, it covers the
entire field of effort to suppressor reg
ulate the traffic in intoxicating liquors,
whether by prohibition, local option,
high license, or any other kind of li
cense. The doclriue of ihe case is
that' iuterstato.ut:btumerce cannot be
interfered with by the states through
any of the methods I have named o
far, at least, as may affect'he introduc
tion of intoxicants into a slate and the
sale thcrecf in the Original packages
to whomsoever may waut lo buy."
