Theso editorial report that tho department niul the Oreek Commissioners nrt unable to renoh an agreement relative to a supplementary Treaty l not much surprising, for tho fnct that It would altnoit he an lm 'possibility to equally allot all the lands. It is fast Hearing twelve montlin since the helpleea, hut faithful Indian was promised his deed, so that, his dear od tribal relations being gone, ho might improve his home, put his allotment Into n fine state of cultiva tion and thereby quicken the strides of 'civilisation. Hut still the month go by ami no deed, and above all no reason why they aro not received moth Ing but a lingering stillness and a procrastinated uncertainty, and surely uncertainty Is the most unenvlwl state of affairs that could be produced. A great majority of the Creek Indians lack the means of Improving their own allotment, so they must necessar ily resort to the lescoe for whatever improvement his land shall got. But then ho meets right face to face the Intolerable '"one year lease' undor which he cannot ask for substantial Improvements, aid again ho drops Inio dlKpalr, with only a longing deslro lor his much coveted deed. It Is hoped that Chief Porter will soon return from tho capital with good news and that in the form of deeds.

Mcl'herson, Knns., March. 22. Itev. Granville Lonthor. DD.. pastor of a local church was served with papers at a Methodist Episcopal conforonco here today, charging him with heresy and setting forth that he would bo tried at Kansas City, Knns., on March 2C. Hev. Louthor, who is a member of tho Southewest Kansas conforence, is chnrged with bolng guilty with dissem inating doctrines cotrnry to and sub versive of tho doctrines of the Motho dlst Episcopal church and It is nllogod that ho Is "atheistic." Itov. Louthor Is charged with making and teaching tho following doctrines which are sot down ns In violation of tho confosslon of faith and tho Cathechlsm: That tho serpent who talkod to Eve was a man, one of tho race to which sho and Adam belonged; that ho had not como into the consciousness of God. thereforo was classed with the beasts, and that there wero other In habitants or members of tho race, If not. how did Cain find his wife In the land of Nod, whoro nono of Adam's children except Cain had gone; If not whence camo tho daughters of men whom the sons of God took for wives? Tho reasonablo Interpretation Is that tho descendants of Adam wero called bods of God, becauso baying entered Into a conscious knowledge or Clod they would claim him us their creator and worship him. The others, not tyiowlng God was called the sons nnd daughters of men. That Adam and Eve as first created hud no more perception of their oMl gat Wis of obedience; Uiat In outing the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil they had done nothing except what the others about them were doing and what they themsolves had formeri don and cwitsequently thoy felt guilty. 'That Christ died for men to show man how to die; that his willingness to die for tnnu should be multiplied by exactly the number of disciples of Chi 1st nnd that the atonement can never be completed until this leda pre vails." Mr. Ixmther had been Identified for years with the Kansas State Holiness Association, us its president. He be lieves that In religion as well :ib in woild building God Is proceeding from lower to higher forms, and that the process mint continue In tho1 future ns It has In the past. He contends that needs are valuable only as landmarks; says the lack of freedom of soul Is like compressing a lady's waist In cor sets to compel It to grow according to a certain fashlohablo Iilenl. and de clares that religion can never reach the rulluess of naturalness until it U free from fear of persecution for its highest and holiest concepts.

Stove Hurko, of Rush, Texas, who for ten days nnd nights preached to Immense congregations In tho Ilaptlst church. Ho Is a very pleas ant speakor and a man of striking per sonality. Doforo his conversion ho was a drunkard, a gambler and all round politician. Ho was for several years a resident of Guthrie nnd Perry and hold tho position of United States dep uty marshal. His is a posltlvo char acter and he is now serving tho Lord with tho samo zeal with which ho for merly served tho dovll.

March Judge Wright, acting civil governor of the Philippines, has written a personal letter to Gen. Marcus J. Wright, of this city, which gives an Interesting insight Into the condition of affairs in the Philippines. "We are so far removed from the fnlted State." says Governor Wright, "that I fenr the people at home get rather an Inadequate Idea of the situa tion here. The press reports of tin last mouth or more, which hnve reach ed us here, together with the com ments thereon, seem to indicate that the general opinion is thnt the whole Islands nro olthur In Insurrection or else that outbreaks aro prevented only by the use of troops on an oxtenflvp scale. This Is wholly misleading. Tho real truth Is that In lift per cent of the territory of the Islnnd there Is no In surrection, and Amor leans go about singly and unarmed with about as much safety ns they would In n largo majority of the stntos nt home. There Is a fust dying Insurrection In two provinces of tho groat island of Luion and In the remote southern Island of Samnr. Here ami there In more re mote sections there nro Instances of cattle stealing and occasionally mur der or robbery. Wo are dealing very energetically with tho lawless element and the people as a rule are rebuild lug their houses whore they have been destroyed; tilling their fields and pur wiling their ordinary vocations. "Of course, telegraphic dispatches general ly deal alono In something sensational. I apprehend that If any ono of us weie In a foreign country nnd rocolv od only news as It was In the United Stntes In tho police circles we would get ubout the same Idea of our own country as many or tho people or the United Stntos seem to havo on this. The fnct Is that the progross we hnve made In the last year Is tremendous and to mo very encouraging. While I do not look for tho mlllonium either hero or elsewhere speedily. I hco no tenson to doubt that Amorlcan author ity can now be maintained without more troops than Indicated by Govern or Taft. Of course we must utilize the natlvo In policing his own country, just as has been done by England In nil her colonies. J. A. BIVENS, President. A. H. PALMER, Caehler. THE CITY N ardmore:. i. r.
